There are certainly lots of ways to find out about new products. One of my favourite ways is the direct mailing of Samples from some companies that offer them. Great way to try new products and they often include a coupon to use for your first purchase
Thanks for posting the graph. I would fit into 3, 4 & 5 definitely, but also number 1 sometimes, especially if shopping for t-shirts and hoodies for my grandsons. They select what they want from online stores and then let me know.
I too find it frustrating to almost complete the survey and then be told you don't qualify. However, I do appreciate getting the 5 points and I have accumulated enough points to cash out once and got my reward very quickly
