Academic Survey(~ 15 minutes) - $0.20 +51.50 bonus
$374.49 / hour
00:08:17 / completion time
ProsThis was a paid screener worth 20-cents. If you made it through, you get a $1.50 bonus. The whole thing can easily be completed in under 10 mins so, $1.70 is good pay.
There is also a chance to win a "bonus" of a $50 gift card. Obviously, I never count on winning these things but, I was pleasantly surprised when I finished the survey, I received a message telling me that I won:
"Congratulations! You are selected as the winner of bonus payment!
Your ID number is: <redacted>. We randomly selected winners based on their IDs.
Based on one of your earlier answers, you chose to receive a $50 Gap gift card.
We will contact you via MTurk in three days to send you the $50 gift card."
Will update when/if the gift card is actually received.
EDITING TO ADD: TurkerView won't let me include the $50 bonus in my hourly so, I'm only including the $1.50 bonus
EDIT: Five days after submitting this HIT, I did receive an email from the requester that included a link to a $50 gift card, as was indicated when I finished the original HIT. Good stuff!

ConsAvoid this hit.
-This survey was like 5 mturk surveys combined into one.
-I thought it would never end. Just kept going and going and going...
-Asks questions about the outcome of the Super Bowl, which hasn't even happened yet.
-No progress bar.
-Did I mention how bubbly this is?
-Pay is very meh for the time.
-Employment options in the demographic section were weird and they didn't have mine listed.
-I hated this.

Pros-possible bonus, however it isnt really described all that well. as you can see, I did not get it.
-Psuedo paid screener since if you dont get by, you get the 15c. if you do, you get the 1.50 as a bonus which is separate of the other possible bonus.
Cons-meh hourly all things considered.
