I have no doubt they would.
People are more than happy to hand over every facet of their lives to facebook for nothing.

I totally would, but it would mainly be the sexual preferences of the bank CEOs' wives.

I'd settle for legal impunity to hunt, at my leisure and discretion, any member of the board of directors and executive membership of any top 10 (by size) bank in the world.

Yeah cause I totally would give up all my information for a t shirt or a stress ball, some people actually do that.

I'm sure I would, but my definition of "benefits" doesn't align with the study at all.

"benefits ranging from gym membership discounts to offers based on their location"

Uh, no.

Because they don't understand just how much money you get for their data.

I bet people would be willing to give up a lot of data for no foreign ATM transaction fees or for 2 overdraft fee removals per month.

No. I'm sick of this shiat. My auto insurance broker asked me if I'd put a monitor in my car for 10% off. I told him no and not to ask me again. I told him this politely but I do wish we as a society could stand together on something. Enough is enough with this data bullshiat.

It's bad enough that Uncle Sam has all of our preferential data.  Corporate America is FAR less scrupulous about what is done with personal data.  Not one executive anywhere cares one bit if your personal data is being misused by his/her company.  Not like you can vote them out of office or anything.  They'll just buy another elected official.

Heck, they buy half a dozen they get a volume discount.
