A few weeks ago I switched internet providers and was blocked from getting in my Charter e-mail, this caused a great deal of trouble for me. I had not switched e-mails with all my survey companies. A few days before this I cashed in my Harris Poll earnings for a Walmart card. I could not even get into my Harris account b/c I forgot my password. However I contacted Them and told my story and they were great, they canceled the old card and sent me a new one and contacted me again to make sure I received it. They went above and beyond what I expected.
I also love that Harris poll pays fair, surveys are between 75 and 200 points and you need 1250 for a $10 card. The only problem I have is I don't get as many surveys as I like, but they are fair and honest and that goes a long way in the Survey world, so yes give them a try!
Yes, it did take me about a year to reach my first payout, but when I reach that payout & I'm paid promptly--I'm happy! 3 other survey sites I had to wait 6 - 8 months...there is NO excuse for this unacceptable behavior!! I reached my payout (and requested payment) on 02/12/2014. My Amazon E-Card was emailed to me on 02/19/2014. I can live with that. They state it takes 4 to 5 days. Most, state 4 to 6 weeks! I have found that with most of these sites, that you qualify for more & more surveys the longer you are with them (the more you take). Same with Harris Poll; I completed the majority of them in the last 2 mos. They give you points for attempting, even if you screen-out--those add up.
Just joined but already thinking of shutting down my account. Surveys seem few and far between, and are for low points. Also, I have now completed two surveys that took about 15 minutes, asked me basically everything i'm sure they really wanted to know, and then at the very last question informed me that i was screened out. That's so shady.
this use to be a good panel and have cashed in rewards in the past but now i just get the runaround from them, still owe me $20 in amazon credit and will probably never receive
Harris Poll has definitely gone down the cosmic loo the past few years. I used to get several surveys a week based on profile, and they had these cool 'levels' of rewards where you could get gift cards or even actual items like DVD's, crock pots and such.
Now I'm lucky to get one or two offers from them a week (if that), and it's the 'random possible survey' thing. In other words, you keep trying until you find a survey you can take. The odd thing is the site claims this is better, but it's a TOTAL waste of time, going through survey after survey finding the one you may qualify for. And once you DO find one, that's it, no more surveys for you that day. At least Opinion Outpost, error prone as they are, let you keep taking until you run out.
The rewards now are pathetic and the the incentives are so low it takes forever to even earn them. Unless they shape up, plan to drop them.
