Formerly known as surveys.com
There was no way to tell what the options were for payout ahead of time. You have to reach 2500 points and then find out that you won't even be able to get anything after doing all those surveys. You need way more points than that to get the worst piece of junk, and about a million more to get anything half decent. It would probably take three years to reach that.
After having a million and one issues even trying to find the reward site, I ended up her on Survey Police. I wish I would have came here first. The only reason I haven't stopped going to that site is because I don't want to waste the points I've already earned. My plan was once I've earned enough to redeem I was going to end my relationship with them. Now I'm thinkin' its not worth the work.

If you're looking for Paypal, check, or Amazon, turn back now. askGFK does not and has not had that for awhile. Of course, there are many sites that deal solely in rewards or specific gift cards/e-vouchers, so why is my rating still so low? Strap in, we'll be here for awhile.
2500 points. It seems a bit far but reasonable, right? That is, until you know the conversion rate for points to their general reward value (askGFK doesn't even give you this info, only saying that it "varies" from reward to reward). 7.5 points = $0.01. I had to calculate that by using the value for a $100 Lobster Gram card (one of the few gift cards they have) and weighing it against the point value, which was 75000. The threshold before they even let you redeem your points or even see for what you can redeem them is 2500 (~$3.33), and when you can finally do so:
-It takes a week or longer for your points to transfer to their SEPARATE rewards site, during which time your points are being validated.
-Even once you reach the rewards site, the entry threshold isn't enough to redeem for ANYTHING. The lowest and probably only worthwhile gift is the $25 dining certificate at 3250 points, just because that's like $4.33 for a $25 coupon you can use at a restaurant of your choice (limited to the ones that are part of diningdough). To give you an idea of how crap the value of some of the rewards actually is, it would take 375188 points (roughly $500.25) to get an Xbox 360 bundled with controllers and a game (doesn't say which game, btw). That's twice as much cost for what you can buy at Best Buy currently, which incidentally would come bundled with two games and one controller.
But enough about rewards. Let's talk about how many points it takes to get them. The best paying surveys GFK has to offer give 550 points (~$0.73)on successful completion. The average payouts tend to be about 150 points ($0.20). A fair amount (I'd say... 30%) of the surveys you take will give you a consolation of 15 points ($0.02) if you don't qualify.
As you can see, unless you're spamming the portal for failed qualifications or qualifying for every survey you come across, it'll take you awhile to accumulate enough points for anything, and then you have to wait a week for them to go to the rewards site before you have to wait even longer to redeem them. Tedious is probably the best word for this site. Frustrating is a good second, because their survey topics (when you actually qualify) are really interesting! I checked this site out because a couple panels I was on often had GFK surveys that I liked taking. Now, I regret joining askGFK because all that awaited me was tedium and disappointment. Their survey topics, combined with their survey presentation and ease of navigation during surveys are the reason I gave them 1.5 stars and not .0.5.
Stay away. If you like their surveys, do them through other panels.
AskGfk is the French and European and American part of the famous company GFK. It will only remunerate euro following this schedule:
Each online survey, you will receive "points investigations", 100 points corresponding to the sum of 1 euro.For a while I am connected to this site: good Relationships between members and the people Who run this site, monitoring and rapid response. Payment Within short time we say more than this site is more than Promising
I finally earned enough points to claim a £15 voucher. The website shows logos of various shops on their rewards page, including Amazon, so I was under the impression I could choose a voucher for any of these shops. However, when I tried to order an Amazon voucher, I found I was given no choice, the only reward available was a "high street voucher", with no info as to what shops I could spend it in. I ordered this reward as it was the only one on offer, but it's been 2 months now and I've still not received it. I've sent 3 messages to the panel to ask where my reward is, but they haven't replied to any of them. AVOID THIS PANEL!!!!
