Reward Types and Amounts
Ipsos i-Say offers the following reward options:

Ipsos offers a loyalty program where members can earn bonus points if they have already completed a certain number of surveys in the past. For instance, members receive 25 bonus points after completing 5 surveys, 50 bonus points after completing 10 surveys, etc. The more surveys that are completed, the more bonus points increasingly become more valuable.
Ipsos Background Information
The Ipsos i-Say online survey panel is operated by Ipsos Insight, a division of Ipsos. Ipsos is one of the world's largest online marketing research companies which conducts over 6 million surveys annually in over 100 countries..
Note: The European version of this panel, Ipsos Access Panels, has merged with Ipsos i-Say. They are now one.
I have been a loyal member for a few months, answering every survey they have sent to me. All of a sudden my account is deactivated after the start of a survey, stating my information was false. I had gotten as far as age range and state of residence, which WERE entered accurately.
I contacted the company and like others was told they did not have to explain why or justify it and that I lost all of my earnings.
From what I can see here, this seems to be a common practice for them which makes me wonder how much money they have denied their members.
I loved taking their surveys and the whole way they set things up, but BEWARE if you join them since they do seem to be showing a trend with this.
If you have been burned by this, complain to the BBB and depending on how much you want to pursue it to your states Attorney General.
These are the types of people who are giving the industry a worse standing, and by reporting them to the BBB then they MUST do either of 2 things, ignore it or justify it, either way it counts against them.
I was a member of this panel for several years always with good results. They paid on time, generally posted points in a timely manner, and I did not have any issues. Over the past year, they got significantly worse with not posting points correctly and customer service being slow to respond. Finally, I stopped getting survey emails altogether and when I went to the website to login, I received a message that my account had been deactivated.
When I contacted support, I was informed that "We analyzed the information collected in our surveys and noticed some contradictions in the answers you provided in our surveys. These discrepancies affected the accuracy of our survey results. As a consequence, we were obligated to deactivate your membership and it cannot be reactivated.
This decision was made for market research purposes only."
All my points are gone, I was never even informed of this decision if I had not contacted them, and apparently this is how they do business.
I have not had a similar issue with any other survey panel. I cannot recommend this panel to anyone due to the arbitary way they just close accounts without warning or reason.
Joined this site yesterday and have already received two surveys - both of which screened me out. Waste of time.
Deactivated account and won't be rejoining.
I took 40-45 minutes to complete survey. Got to the end where you can play a game for prizes. It wanted me to sign in my Twitter account. I chose not to, therefore I didn't play the game. Not sure if I even got the points. Survey was too long. I've been a member of this survey for several years and this is the first time they wanted my Twitter account!
I have had an interesting time with this company.
You can literally try as many as you choose, and the payout is generally within 4 - 10 days. (Depending on holidays in my case.)
I have been doing "Their" surveys and product testing (on occasion) for a couple of years. I did win a $350 Amazon card from one of their daughter companies. They offer, from time to time for certain profiles to join these specialized panels.
