Duolingo survey its true o spam?
Hi Friends, today i received an email about survey in duolingo with a gif card to $25, but this email is very stranger for that reason i posted this message.
"You're invited to help improve Duolingo!
At Duolingo, we’re always looking for ways to improve the experience of people learning languages. Sharing your thoughts about Duolingo and language learning helps us create a better product for you and for other language learners around the world. Please help us by completing this short survey about your experience.
The survey should only take a few minutes. At the end of the survey, you will have an opportunity to win one of several $25 Amazon gift cards. The gift cards will be distributed by email within one week of completing the survey.

Make sure in the e-mail OPTIONS field that you can verify the sender / server (MTA) where you received the e-mail from and not from a spammer.
Also make sure that you do not provide any username and password data when you click a link in an e-mail.
It could redirect you to another domain!
Too many people have been hacked on Memrise and Duolingo!
Hello all! Just to clarify, this is a REAL opportunity to take a survey and help our research team. Thank you!
Sure thing! We should have warned sooner but I am also glad that we have people on the lookout. It's good not to trust all links and posts you find online. Thanks to those that wanted verification!
Duolingo was running a survey that included an Amazon gift card. It's not something to do with what I do. So, I don't know if it is still happening or not.
What is the email address it arrived from? (I might recognize that, at least.)
Clicking “Take the Survey” will direct you to Qualtrics
Are coherent: it seems to come from this website specialized in making survey: https://www.qualtrics.com/support/survey-platform/distributions-module/email-distribution/avoid-being-marked-as-spam/
Not claiming it's legit, just that it has a chance to be.

The email sender was: Lowell from Duolingo
A google search of
Duolingo User Experience Research Team lowell returns as first result the linkedin.com profile of a Lowell that works at Duo as "Senior UX Researcher at Duolingo | Accessibility Advocate".
But, again, not claiming it's legit, just that it seems to be.
I didn't receive one of these emails - have I been excluded from the survey population for some reason?
I didn’t receive it either. I assume Duolingo is surveying only a sample of their users.
