The sample size of 500 is problematic for drawing conclusions. Did they just hang out at the local mall and ask people? That's going to skew the data heavily towards the norm for the socio-economic group that visits that particular mall, and you'd have to know whether or not that norm is representative of the nation as a whole (as an example).
Any consumer survey that has a sample size of less than 10,000 is probably taken from a limited geographical area. Any survey that only includes responses from a single website suffers from a similar grouping problem.
While the survey results may be in line with other reports, without knowing the sample size and collection methods of all surveys you simply cannot draw meaningful conclusions that are likely to hold true with a larger data set.
Here endeth the lesson.
