I was a member of this panel for over 10 years, answering surveys, trying products, and collecting points. Last week I could not log in to check my points. I contacted the help desk, and they sent me this e-mail:
Further, all of the HIpoints and /or other cash incentives associated with your accounts have been rendered void. Please note that you are prohibited from accessing or using the Harris Poll Online site, including participating in the Harris Poll Online panel, at any time in the future.
I never received an e-mail from them prior to today, and I am offended at the accusatory tone of this e-mail. I am telling everyone I can to stay away from this company!!!!!
Great surveys, customer service and rewards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Harris Poll has definitely gone down the 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, electronics, appliances and such.
Now it's the 'random possible survey' thing. In other words, they send you an e-mail link and 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 repetitive pre-sceen questions finding the one you may qualify for. Nine times out of ten it doesn't find one or asks 20 some questions in a survey, THEN decides you don't qualify.
The rewards now are pathetic and the the incentives are so low it takes forever to even earn them. Once I get enough to cash out my remaining points, I'm dropping them.
It may simply be my age, but Harris Polls doesn't seem to be able to find many surveys for me...66-yrs-old. Their rewards seem to be mostly magazine subscriptions or gift cards to restaurants. They do have a few causes to donate your rewards...I donate Trees.
Their surveys do not pay much. Most are about 35 cents. Also, about 30% of my surveys never credit. I have to screen print the completion and email them. If you decide to use them, write down survey numbers and check your account to make sure they credited. They dont put a survey number in the dashboard, so you have to guess.
