Yes, I've done this too and, knock on wood, have never gotten rejected for it.
It is certainly frustrating to get stuck on an endless, underpaid survey. However, if I've passed the point of no return on a long survey and the timer is running out, I do not hesitate to submit with my Worker ID in the completion code box of the HIT, finish the survey, and promptly email the requester with the completion code. I personally feel that if I've already spent so much time on a survey, then at the least I'm going to get my pay for it, and I'm not going to let an expiring HIT timer take that away from me.

Some people on here will say they do that too and occasionally get a rejection, but I've submitted my worker ID in the HIT, followed by a polite message to the requester with the completion code and an explanation that the HIT timer was about to expire after I'd invested so much time, at least 500 times without a single rejection.

wow, monster refresh! Was at 952 approvals this evening, just did a dashboard refresh and a slew of pendings are now approved, sending me to 1062 total HIT approvals (99.72%) so milestone finally hit!

They do it frequently. I don't do much online shopping anymore and I use that offer whenever I'm ordering something that I need Prime delivery on. I've done it at least 6 times in the last 8 months and keep expecting it not to be offered again but it shows up everytime.
I've only ever seen the free 30 day trial before and I too have used it OFTEN.

not surprised. I think I saw Prime subscriptions slumping in the U.S. so I think they might be trying to find ways to get people to try or re-experience Prime again.

Other than 2 day shipping and occasional songs available to me for free, I don't know why I have it. I wish there were tons of videos that were free to stream instead of most of them being pay per episode or pay per season to stream.
I order so much from there the free shipping pays for itself. It works for me though just because again live like 35 miles from Walmart as far as basic stuff goes. They just closed both the Staples in that same radius of 35-45 miles so no office supply type place. And then we have a Kohls for clothing. Hardware is covered but ya other things cheaper for me to get online and Prime works perfect. (also the few shows they may have I cannot get elsewhere)

Which requesters?... I certainly wouldn't try this with a requester who has a solid track-record of rejections already.
AmyC Barrett and Emmanuel Johnson. Johnson has bad reviews. I probably didn't notice that back then. I'm still learning.

Still waiting to see if Angela Listy rejects my HIT from yesterday where I accidentally put my mTurk id in the code box. I immediately messaged her with the completion code and my id. So far no reply and still pending.

haha good point. I think it depends who it is? I know I have many replies, however think it is more people working on a particular study, versus the ones with big batches or lots of varying topics.

lol this is a new one. Have one where the captcha is messed up. Have to select the objects in the images, and if I am trying to click on the one to the far left it doesn't check but the one to the far right does. But there is no way to select any in the middle or left columns. Not my night tonight lol

I took a break from searching. Just did this one. 2 minute timer, but not a difficult hit:

Alan Howard http://ns4t.net/1eLaU • Click the best result from a set of Search Results http://ns4t.net/e3a68 • 0.05 • Accept: http://ns4t.net/9f554 • 3M6KHLIXGPOCXKTJTK8S6ZURYKXRIN
should be longer timer. I wished to ponder more about my answer to the task but felt rushed so I had to go with first impressions instead of thoughtful impressions.

Had one recently where the survey mechanics were acting in a way to potentially have people miss questions. I sent them a message and they got back thanking me for letting them know. And then as you can see the person who does the Cereal Bars study is even on here talking with people.
