Survey panelists of Mindfield Online receive cash awards as well as entries into cash prize draws in exchange for their online survey participation.
Update:Almost a year later, I have finally accrued enough for cashout,which has been raised several times (now $20), but they still owe me $6. As of July 1, there will be no more checks - PayPal, Amazon,WalMart or Sam's gift cards. Not gonna resign until I have what I'm owed.
I don't get many invitations, even for the special dining-out panel to which I belong (Facebook-driven, and quiet of late). Frequent 'overquotas' & 'client maintenance - come back later' which never get fixed. Slow to validate & credit. I've been stuck at $15 for some time - could cash out with Amazon, but I want a check. May have to rethink it, and whether I want to even continue with Mindfield.
I've been a panelist with them for 8 months and have had no major problems. I usually get about 6 surveys per month and qualify for maybe 2 outta the 6. My problem is that while I do get a fair amount of surveys, mostly all, if not more than half of them I don't qualify!
It completely defeats the purpose of them having you to fill out a profile so that they can "supposedly" send out more "qualifying" surveys.
My biggest problem is the amount of time it takes for you to receive credits! I have at least 14 bucks pending, and have been pending for over a month. Their faqs state survey credits can take up to 4 weeks (I think), but some of mine are over a month old and I still haven't got credit for them.
They're 1 of the slowest sites for giving credits, but another one I've found to be equally worse is sureveyhead and cashonly surveys! They are like mindfield; if you EVER qualify for a survey, they take forever to give credits!
Mindfield is only for the most patient folks!
I've found that they are not paying out in a reasonable/timely manner. they recently raised the cashout to $10 and then raised it to $20!! The good thing (I thought) was you can cash out via Amazon and it say's on the page: "Don't want to wait?" cashout via Amazon" but the kick to this is once you do this cashout it say's that you will get your Amazon gift code in 1-2 weeks!! Thats not cashing out NOW. I agree with all the other posts, Mindfield has gone rotten so I'm going to flush them down the stool where they belong!..and I'm contacting the company's that I've tested products for through Mindfield and telling them how they are ripping off their panelists.
I was with this site for 4 years. Accumulated a massive $32. Got plenty of surveys but qualified for few. Pitiful rewards. I dumped them last year.
This company has gone downhill. They were fair once upon a time. They must have changed management and put some greedy troll in charge. I've taken a lot of their surveys and just recently discovered that most of them have been trashed by them. Disqualified EXCESSIVELY just to keep from paying a dollar on most of them. I wrote them and got a canned response, stating the obvious stuff that I already knew. They probably didn't even read my complaint. Definitely NOT recommended.
