Harris Poll offers their members the opportunity to earn gift cards in exchange for their participation. Once you earn 1250 points (worth $10), you can request an e-gift voucher from places like Amazon, iTunes, Starbucks, Walmart, ESPN, and more.
Get points for disqualifications
If you attempt to complete a survey, but are disqualified in the process, you will receive 15 HIpoints as well as an entry into the HIstakes draw. As well, you will be offered the opportunity to try qualifying for other available surveys.
Online surveys typically take anywhere between 15-20 minutes to complete. Short surveys will take around 5 minutes, and very long ones are around 25 minutes. These reasonable survey lengths will keep your attention and prevent you from getting bored too quickly!
Participate in a variety of different research
Like most survey panels, Harris Poll offers online surveys, but they also offer their members the opportunity to participate in things like focus groups (chatroom style or even bulletin board style), in person focus groups, telephone surveys and direct mail assignments. It is always your choice whether or not you'd like to participate in these special opportunities. Alternatively, you might be contacted to download software to your computer or mobile phone, again, for special research assignment purposes.
Rewards processing times
Redeem your rewards and receive them within 15 business days. They will be sent to your e-mail account.
Chance to win $10,000 every quarter
HarrisPoll gives away a $10,000 USD prize every quarter to one lucky winner in their Histakes - the Harris Poll Online Sweepstakes. Entries are received when being disqualified for surveys, as well as for things like short surveys that may not award points. Winners names are published on the HIstakes winners page and this list is kept up to date.
Eligibility: USA/Canada residents must be 13+ to participate. Users from other countries must be age 14+.
Much better chance of qualifying than most survey sites. Takes 625 points to get a $5 gift card. You get points for most surveys when you don't qualify. If you try hard enough you should be able to earn at least $10 a month from them.
The thing that annoys me about Harris Poll is they keep no profiles, so when they send you an e-mail link, you can spend several minutes answering repetitive preliminary questions before it even finds a survey. Often the logic in these makes no sense, why ask the age of my children if I've said I don't have any, or give me several pages of diseases when I claim I have none? Beyond that, the surveys are okay, and the rewards fair, if rather slow on receiving. If they could just fix it up so you go straight to the survey, would rate higher.
I have been able to accumulate a decent amount of points from them fairly quickly. Their polls are easy to complete and your chances of completing a survey are slightly above average. Their redemption catalog is about average but the points required to redeem are good.
Was a member for many years got paid out several times, then all of a sudden they stopped sending me survey invites and the few I got, I didn't qualify for so unsubscribed.
I really do like Harris Poll but the qualifying questions at the beginning are starting to become very time consuming.
