Hi. I'm in my first week of turking and realize that as a noob, my access to HITS is limited (out of 500,000 HITS, I can only see about 180 that I'm "qualified for") - and even those that appear available aren't really because there is some other restriction in the HIT that isn't apparent until you look at the instructions (wasting a lot of time).
Is there any way to filter out the hits that I see over and over again that I can't do (like Mexican Cannibis program participants or customers of Contour Cox cable)?
Also, are there qualifications that I should go after to get access to better HITS? I've mostly been doing surveys and receipt validations. Thanks!

I'm new at mturk its like its my 9th day of turking and earning descent amount of $. I email a couple of questions at mturk inquiry about payment methods and surprisingly I'm so dissapointed that In my country Philippines I cannot receive any payments via bank account! hence, can only receive amazon giftcard.
It's so frustrating. here's the email message: Unfortunately, we currently don't have the ability to disburse payments via PayPal or Bank Account for Workers located in Philippines. We hope to offer additional payment services to our international Workers in the future, and I'm sorry that we're not able to do so now. Currently funds received in your Mechanical Turk account can only be disbursed to your Amazon.com Gift Card balance.
I want to earn money from this work, not for the Gift Card. Mturk is one of the best online work so far for me, It has been a great experience. But I guess its time to move and find find another online job.
Any suggestion is much appreciated...

You can change your password without harming your account and you should. People do it all the time to protect their accounts. I've done it myself and my account is fine. I would go in and change your email and password.

The first week, I had more than enough HITs that paid a good amount and as the week progressed, the number dwindled down to virtually nothing.
Now all the surveys barely pay 25 cents... And when the hitscraper does show a good survey that pay above a dollar, when I go click on it, it says it's not available to you at the moment.
meanwhile, the daily earning for me has dwindled down to below 20 and then 15 and then 10 dollars a day. And I've spent all day in the past 11 days doing this and trying to learn.
I've attached a picture of my history of earnings.
I am only at 497 HITs so far after 10 days of doing the surveys. is this the pattern I should expect, because I'm currently unemployed and this is my only job, and I was seriously considering it doing it full time at home which works great for me right now.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
