I have been a member for more than 7 months always send surveys, I've already redeemed some of my accumulated points.
BEEN A MEMBER A WHILE NOW AND THEIR SURVEYS ARE EASY AND FREQUENT....NICE SELECTION OF REWARDS ,IN GENERAL A NICE COMPANY,YOU CANNOT GO WRONG BECOMING A MEMBER...
12/2013 I read a bunch of the comments that did not like them compared to what they were. I must now agree as the number of survey offers has dropped and rewards declined, so I reduced my rating :( 4/2012 I have been with them over ten years. The old reward system I believe was called You Give. It had very little that I wanted. Now you can get Amazon. com cards. A $20.00 card is 2400 points. Completed surveys pay 50 to 250 points, average 100 about $.85 each. Every unqualified survey is worth 15 points. Now days everybody partners with everyone else. If I keep my email notifications and click on the take survey button I can get up to three surveys a day, many with partners reviewed on Survey Police. I will get more bottom line money through gift cards with Harris than any other partnering site except for maybe my other favorite, Opinion Outpost. They say it can take three weeks to get your reward (it used to be much quicker). They mean it and you often have to send in a query after three weeks, but then they are very prompt about getting your reward to you, within 24 hours.
This was the first site I joined, but it's not the best. Certainly not the quickest in accumulating points (I've cashed out enough points on an average of once a year) and their reward payout time is rather ridiculous. After placing my order for an online voucher I received an email that says my next "status update" should be arriving in 15 days. Status update? It gets worse: so now it's been 25 days since my initial order and I have since received a code to redeem a code for an email to get a code to get another email and wait for a code to get my reward (an iCard gift certificate). So finally I get the long awaited email to redeem my selected gift card and - boom! Sorry, there's "technical difficulties" that are preventing them to process my reward at this time.
"Try again at a later time" and if it doesn't work in 7 business days, contact customer support. This may or may not be Harris Poll's fault, but regardless, after this ridiculously drawn out process, I'm fed up! Forget it - getting the points was okay, redeeming the reward has been a real pain! Other sites are able to pay out instantly for similar rewards.
I have been with Harris Poll for several years now. They used to create their own polls and you usually had good chance of getting points from them. However, last year they started using different materials to see if you qualified for surveys through a website, called Samplico. I rarely qualify for anything now but when I do, I have to fill-out the full survey to qualify and sometimes at the end they say I did not get the points for it. If something doesn't change soon I will be quitting this website.
