I almost missed this in a generic email send from PRC last night:
*” In order to continue to provide you with the quality support you deserve, including issuing redemption requests in a timely manner,* ***redemption requests will now be paid via electronic Amazon gift codes beginning February 11, 2019.*** *This change will allow us to reduce the time it takes to process redemption requests which means you will receive your reward faster than before. “*
Kinda sucks as i liked the real $$$ especially after a high-paying study.
