Maybe I am a "desired demographic" (male now in his early 40s); but, Harris Polls online has always been good for me: I rarely take a survey longer than 15 minutes and quickly receive 15 points for non-qualifying surveys. When I have time to devote to it, I consistently earn $10 gift cards on Harris Poll Online faster than my other survey companies. The only drawback I perceive is cash is not an option and giftcard options are somewhat limited; but, it's always been good for me and available surveys seem to have increased in the past year.
I have tried for three months to get them to fix their "reward" site--I can not access my account to redeem my awards. They have to know that is does not work. I have even written their home office and did not get a response. I feel like they are not very ethical.
Good site and the results have meaning. Your results are combined with others and the product(s) know what its customers think.
I have been taking surveys with this group in excess of two years. In fact, it was the only organization that I took surveys through for a very long time. Recently, I read that someone was having trouble receiving payment after cashing in points. Right after that, I cashed in points. This was my first redemption in approximately two years of taking surveys. I cashed in 15,000 points for Amazon gift cards. I did get the codes, but it took a long time. The length of time concerned me, so I made two more attempts to cash in points. One on the 12th of January, and another on the 9th of February. Neither of these redemptions have been honored in nearly a month for one case and nearly two months in the other. I have contacted their help desk twice. They didn't even bother to respond in the second case. I notice that they are attempting to recruit new people to take surveys or them. It is highly probable that their base of survey takers is rapidly dwindling. Beware.
Another long-time member who is not thrilled with them, BUT I do like the points for screening out and if you check their site often you get more surveys. Hourly payout is low though.
