    ...your bank sends you a customer satisfaction survey via email and you refuse to do it because there's no payment involved.

    ...you price things out in your head by the number of HITs it costs. Oh, that candy bar at the grocery store? That costs 8 Wiktors.

    ...you read about a study in the news or hear about it on NPR and think, hey, I remember doing the survey for that.
