The survey only takes five minutes to complete and could score you the grand prize of a free Las Vegas vacation for two and an extra paycheck. The survey closes on September 9 and the winner will be randomly selected from all received survey respondents. Don’t miss your opportunity to have your opinion be heard and promoted on a national level and to earn an awesome prize.
