Qualifying for surveys can be a tedious process because each survey you are rotated through looks for a specific group of people to take part in them. You have to use your real information when attempting to qualify for one and the odds are that you are going to get rejected from several before you find one that you actually qualify for. I personally have to retry the Daily Surveys multiple times throughout the day before I get a survey I'm qualified for and the surveys that I eventually get usually pertain to going to the movies (which I do frequently, so naturally I qualify for those once they come in to my rotation and successfully complete them). There is nothing you can do to increase your odds of getting a survey that you qualify for. I wish there was lol. It takes time and a lot of patience and you just keep trying until you finally get one that you qualify for. I attempt all of the Daily Surveys but Daily Survey 8 and 2 are the only two that I succesfully complete regularly. Daily Survey 3 and 1 I only seem to successfully complete if I do them after the new day starts at 1AM EST and sometimes I go days before I get one I qualify for. Daily Survey 4, 5, 6, and 7 are the hardest for me to qualify for. It's a rare occurence.
As for when they approve pertaining to a time zone... This is when they approve for my EST timezone:
Daily Survey 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7 approve on even eastern hours.
(If you finish one of the above close to an even eastern hour, then it will likely not credit during that crediting period, but instead the following even eastern hour period.)
Daily Survey 4 and 6 approve instantly.
(If Daily Survey 4 doesn't approve instantly, then it should revert back to its old ways of approving at 4/10 AM/PM EST.)
Daily Survey 8 approves every 20 minutes within an hour on these: :03, :23, and :43
If you participate in Study Storms and successfully complete one, they credit instantly.
If you participate in Survey Seekers and successfully complete one, most of them credit instantly, but occasionally there are some that take 2-6 weeks to approve.
