The landlord returned my security deposit, minus a few hundred for repairs, a few days ago. It took one and a half months after I moved out and a few reminders from me, but I'm glad I got the money back.
The Shoppers' Hotline consumer research panel ended early this month because they're moving on and forming a new consumer panel with the Nielsen Company. (I was invited to join this one too.) I was somewhat skeptical about Shoppers' Hotline in the beginning but stuck with it and they turned out to be okay. The payout was decent for just a few minutes of work a week submitting data on grocery purchases. Anyway, I've cashed out my reward points. Only the points from the last two or so weeks remain because those aren't enough to redeem for rewards. Oh, well. I'll just let them have those.
