E-Poll Market Research is an online survey company operated by Bridge Entertainment Inc. E-Poll features the unique E-Score service, which is a celebrity rating system that assigns over 40 different attributes to each famous personality which is then matched with particular brands, advertising campaigns, products, etc. E-Poll provides its members the opportunity to participate in entertainment-related marketing research, and provides rewards in the form of points redeemable for gift certificates from major retailers.
I just joined this site today, so this is not a review yet (I will edit this in a couple months with a proper score), but after looking through the pages of other reviews, positive and negative, I noticed there is some information that no one to my knowledge has brought up: the intrinsic value of redeeming points in bulk as opposed to smaller increments.
I am assuming you are interested in gift cards or paypal, yes? In that case, you will be tempted to take advantage of their 5$ minimum--don't do it. Paypal/Amazon/Best Buy/Starbucks/etc. are better redemptions at the 30$ tier than they are at 5$. Each additional tier is always more point-efficient than the tier(s) below it.
For instance. 5$ cashout = 3750 points. 10$ = 7250 (not 7500, which would be the equivalent of two 5$ cashouts). 15$ = 10500. 20$ = 13500. 25$ = 16250. 30$ = 18750 (the equivalent of only 25$ in 5$ cashouts in terms of points).
This means at the 5$ cashout the point conversion rate is 75 points = $0.01. At 30$, the conversion rate is 62.5 points = $0.01. Or, more to the point, 625 points = 1$ versus 750 points for the same value.
Optimistically, this encourages building up points. Cynically, it can be seen as manipulating you into not spending your points because you're holding out for the more efficient payout. Either way, it's better to resist cashing out for as long as you can (or at least waiting until you decide you want to unsubscribe).
That said, I'll see you in a couple months with a proper review of this site.
wow they actually pay though surveys are rare did not know but yeah really cool I guess
Pretty Happy with this site. The first to accumulate points with & cashout happily with. No problems...Nice, surveys...NO negative experience with whatsoever. Will stay with these guys happily for now. Cashout was immediate upon fulfillment of points accumulated.
Its true you don't get a ton of surveys, but, you get one every two weeks. You get at least 1000 points for each survey. The surveys are so fun. You get to watch tv shows that are new. You then answer questions so the producers can see what they may need to change. Its a honest survey site and I love it. They have many rewards to choose from
I've been part of the site for over two years and it's one of my favorites. Quick surveys mostly related to your TV watching habits and while you may not always have enough to redeem for huge cash allotments, you can easily accumulate $5 and $10 every other month via Paypal or even donate to some worthwhile causes, such as St. Jude's Children's Hospital and to animal shelters, which I really like.
Best of all, I have never had an issue with being credited for a survey I've taken, because you can see your activity updated in real-time (a real bother I find on sites such as Survey Savvy).
