When i see a survey with a good reward (say $1, $2, $3 etc), it disappears within seconds. When click accept button as soon as i can, it will show 'no work available'. Why this happens?
Is their way to set auto-accepting surveys which gives more than particular amount..?

Think about it this way: a requester might post 100 surveys. There are maybe 10,000 people on MTurk all trying to grab it. The first 100 people will get it but everyone else will get a "no work available" message. It's just a matter of being fast enough to try to be one of the first 100 to grab it. Most of the time, you won't be one of those people.

As far as i know, there isn't a way for you to auto-accept surveys over a certain dollar amount. You can use a script like MTurkSuite to set up a "watcher" so that if that specific HIT becomes available again later, MTS can accept it for you.

Good luck!
