[This is still very much alive as at January 2014. Now actively recruiting. They have a policy of 'resting' people for a few months after a while, and as people are 'rested' they bring in new people.]

Basically, you have to post a few letters (around 5 or 6) every week for them, and log a few letters received (again, around 5 or 6 a week) onto their online system.

In return, you get 12 First Class and 4 Large First Class stamps every month (worth £8.52), occasional bonus stamps or gifts, a yearly diary and occasional prize draw wins if you have average luck (there are 14 daily prizes of £10, and a monthly £750 prize).

Easy money for the small amount of work involved.

How Quick is Royal Mail?

10,000 people at addresses all over the UK participate in the official independent measurement of Royal Mail’s service.

TNS Research International is commissioned by Royal Mail to deliver this project.

We’re always looking for more people to take part by representing their own postcode area.

Interested?

To find out if you’re eligible and receive more information about the project (including the incentives that we offer) please complete this short questionnaire.

Sign up through the link provided, and in after a few days you should receive this email:

Hello,

There is an opportunity for you to represent your area on the Royal Mail Survey.

This project measures Royal Mail's service and helps them to identify specific parts of their network that require improvement. About 6,000 panellists participating from business and residential addresses post items to each other. TNS Research International calculates how long it takes for Royal Mail to deliver those items.

We'd like to invite you to join our panel of 6,000 panellists for a fixed period of 6 months during which we'll ask you to send and receive a variety of letters. In exchange, we will send you a monthly incentive of 12 x 1st Class stamps and 4 x 1st Class Large Letter stamps, 2 sets of Presentation Stamps, and entry into a prize draw to win High Street vouchers.

Even if you are not available at this point in time, we'd be grateful if you would let us know either way by clicking on the following link:

Thank you,

Royal Mail Project Team

I did this for a couple of years, have a drawer full of stamps now :-) Had to stop because I now work from home so wasn't going past a postbox every day. Typically you can expect to post 4-5 items a week and receive the same. Worth it if you use a lot of stamps and dont need to go out of your way to do the posting tasks. Otherwise it becomes a bit of a drag

I have been doing this for years.

You will only get six months with this, then you'll have to agree to do it again. It used to be continuous until they brought in the new way of doing things. It seems I have to stop for six months from April to make room for those signing up on here. Rotters!

cheers, been accepted

Done this for 2 years (then they withdraw you from the monitoring) its a bit more than just posting in your nearest box box. Some most be posted between certain times, some must be posted at the nearest post office you are told where and when to post.

Registered. We'll see how it goes. If anything, it could give me enough stamps for next Christmas.

It's 6 months on and 6 months off now. You have to post max 4/5 items a week at set times and sometimes in set postboxes ie Post Office. Once a month whilst you are active you receive 12 first class and 4 large first class stamps. You must tell noone you are doing this, and distroy all mail received. If your Postie finds out you are supposed to inform them.

Signed up so will see what happens! Have some heat! :)

I did this for ages but jacked it in cos it was taking up too much time. Its really not a case of just putting something in the post. It can be all times of the day, not just working hours plus weekends. You have to tell them if you're going away and have a big file with all the extras you have to put in the envelopes.

So doing all this in return for the equivilent of £8.52 a month? And thats assuming you would actually use that many stamps to make it worthwhile.

Well if you have loads of time on your hands I can maybe understand, I certainly don't.

Thanks for posting! I signed up and since I regularly receive and send large amounts of mail it's a nice way to cut down a little on the cost of sending (with the free stamps :P)

I'll try a stint. If you're a mystery shopping type you can probably be organised enough to make it pay. But as sideysid said, it's all for 8.52 a month (before tax which you will all pay won't you).
#29
I'm not eligible annoyingly, and don't really want to muck up anything that they are doing, oh well. voted hot though...

Signed up so let's see what happens
#31
I signed up once but bailed out on the trial as it involved posting at my nearest Post office which is a 9 mile return trip away and not in a village I go to very often. Would have been handy otherwise as there is always someone to buy stamps off you or use on Amazon returns and get the postage refunded.

I signed the wife up, she doesn't know yet though, give her something to do other than look after a todler and take the other one to school :-)

We live in a village with a postbox and have a village post office 2 miles away, hopefully not too much of an inconvenience. Heat added (probably from the wife when she finds out)

Tip for the future, lie. If your family works in marketing, print media, television or research no one will want to talk to you!
