This used to be a relatively good site. Over the last year, I have had numerous occasions where I haven't received my vouchers. Each time, I have had to chase them up, and even then, there's been a time delay and more screw-ups.
One particular time, I hadn't received my voucher, had chased up and "cashed-out" another. The replacement voucher arrived, but then I had to chase up the "new one".
I've had continuous problems, so decided to wait until I had £20 before cashing-out...once again, after 4 weeks I still haven't received them, so I contacted Ipsos to find out what's been happening. This is their response:
"Unfortunately, we are not able to register another replacement order for you, since it appears that 2 replacement orders have already been registered for your account this year.Thank you for your understanding."
Well I do not understand. I can't understand why one site would suddenly have such appalling responsibility or accountability. I've suggested that they check and cancel the previous that they have apparently sent, or perhaps try to send recorded delivery.
My advice; empty your account and leave, as I'm pretty sure no-one is working for free here!
The customer service is good, I usually qualify for all of the surveys and they have a nice quality to them. The only problem is the surveys can be very long and griddy with huge grids to fill out but I put up with those surveys because i like everything else about them.
I'd have to say Ipsos is the one site I get the most survey offers from per week, and most the time I actually qualify and complete them. Problem is, the incentives are low based on what it 'costs' to redeem a reward, so takes a while to get say a $20 Paypal check and then it takes the site at least a month to get the reward sent to you, something I find odd since other sites Paypal is done instantly. Also find the site to be a bit overly cutesy, do we REALLY need to name the mascot, especially since there is no way in heck I'm signing up on Facebook just to do so? Do we REALLY need the grinning faces of I-say or the just for fun surveys not worth anything?
I honestly do not understand the negative reviews I have read here!
I have been doing survey's for them for almost 2 years and not experienced any of the problems anyone is talking about!
They pay promptly and the surveys are good, If you screen out it is only after a few questions.
Last month I had a technical problem, I was unable to redeem my points for PayPal, I contacted customer service, the next day I had a reply to please try another browser and if that didn't work to let them know.
I tried 2 different browsers and they would not work either. I recontacted them , that evening I had a reply asking me to tell them how many points I would like to redeem and they would send it to my PayPal acct. I did that and within 4 days the money was in my PayPal!
Great customer service ! Hope this helps others!
This site is unorganized and seems a little shady. I just completed a survey that would have pushed me over the threshold to redeem a 10.00 amazon card (it's taking a lot longer to do this than it used to) and after completing this survey to redeem, I see they have deducted more than 100 points from my account for no apparent reason. I thought this had happened before and now I know they have been doing that. Don't know what's happening to this site.
