Why do requesters post jobs with $0.00 rewards ?

Is there any a time these jobs are worth looking at?
They're usually test HITs or they're internal Amazon HITs, for their employees.


If you have a lot of questions, you might want to try checking out our daily work thread. That's kinda where everyone hangs out and you're much more likely to get quicker responses there than here.

Or at least maybe try to keep all of your questions to one thread so it doesn't clutter up this subforum.

But sometimes they are actual surveys that someone apparently thinks will get done for free! Actually, the answer is probably that Amazon does a good job marketing to requesters, and will happily take the money of requesters who post a survey for $0. They're still paying Amazon... Apparently the requesters just think Amazon will work some magic.

Yes, lol, that's the kind of thing I was referring to. I guess those requesters are hoping some people "just wanna work"
