I have somehow managed to get myself on a covid testing survey by the office of national statistics that will last for a year. They come to your house and you have to take a covid test and then you get £50 then if you agree to continue they will come each week for one month and pay £25 and then for the rest of the year, they will come once a month and pay you £25. I will have my first test today as they are on the way. :)

I’ve had this (or they tried to do it for 2 weeks running) but they kept asking for someone who doesn’t live here!

How/where did you apply as I don't remember applying for this.

I've been signed up for this since last October, it's been so easy and it's a good earner! The vouchers can be redeemed for loads of companies and the service has been prompt and reliable. Plus the regular free covid test is handy, if nothing else.

I think random households are selected to take part, so if you receive the letter and you're unsure, don't be. Just sign up!

Wow, small world as I've also been in one of the ONS cohorts for a good few months. Randomly selected apparently.
This must be an expensive survey to run given that it's £25 per swab, but I feel like I'm earning the money... Doing the swab correctly (i.e. right at the back of the throat and then up each nostril) is not a pleasant experience.

When and how do you get the vouchers, had nothing yet and done 3 tests.

I've usually had an email approx 10 days after each test with a voucher code.

You could email the voucher company to check where yours are up to?
