The company has been very good to me.
I have qualified for several surveys which add up, and pay a few times a year. The parent company has been a source of some phone surveys from 45 - 90 minutes which pay generally Visa or AmEx cards occasionally checks, in about 45 - 60 days.
I am not happy with this one. They are an off shoot of Schlesinger Associates which I love because I do in person panels with them. However, their sister program called Inspired Opinions does anything but inspire. You have to build up points to get a reward at a cash out level of 1000 points. In 3 years I have earned enough once for a $10 amazon gift card. Most of the surveys they send to me either have nothing to do with me or I get disqualified. For example, they may want to speak with men who have migraines which is me. Then they say I got disqualified because I do not fit the profile of what they are looking for.

Thank you in advance,
I've been a member of Inspired Opinions for 4 years. During that time I rarely qualified for any of the surveys, but I didn't close my account because I did have a few points and I wanted to get up enough to cash out. I finally got enough points to cash out in February of 2015, so I cashed out for an Amazon gift card. Shortly after that I received a call from a rep at Schlesinger that I qualified for a webcam interview with a reward of $100. I completed the interview March 20, 2015. I have not yet received my reward. I have attempted to contact Schlesinger once a week since early May to see if they were going to reward me, but emails go unanswered and when I call they just hang up.
I have been "stuck" on 955 points for months. All of a sudden, the survey opportunities with InspiredOpinions stopped. I wonder. Seems like they just used me so they could make money, but right before I was able to cash out, i.e. right when I was just 5 points shy of cashing out, the surveys stopped. That is really low of them to do that to me. To everyone, I would not join InspiredOpinions. Watch out.
It's really sad to see how Inspired Opinions has turned out. Of course everyone knows they are owned by Schlesinger and Associates. Now personally I have always considered Schlessinger's one of the premier places in the Phoenix Area for in person focus groups (having done more than I can count) Now emails go unanswered every time not once or twice. Cashing in your tokens is nothing less than a joke, and again that has been the last 3 times I have cashed some not just once. I used to feel bad leaving bad reviews but every time I did I always made sure I told the truth, I never felt guilty again, I could go on and on but I am sure each and everyone of you has been there.
