This is a good company and I have been a member since they were started, however, I have NEVER received points for every survey, only the surveys I qualified for and completed. If they are paying for every single survey, whether you qualify or not, I find that completely unfair and hard to believe. They send surveys frequently, but it takes a long while to accumulate points.

"Excellent Survey Site"
Friday, September 26, 2014 by Dennis

Based on my experience they deserve their reputation as one of the best survey sites. You qualify for every survey they send you. All our product surveys and sometimes they send you products to test and do a followup survey on. In my opinion they are the best survey site.

"Quality Surveys"
Friday, September 26, 2014 by Samuel

Consistent payout and no minimum requirements to receive cash via PayPal. They pay more than most other companies based on the amount of time required for survey completion and credits are always awarded.

Surveys are somewhat infrequent and unpaid surveys are used to determine eligibility for other paid surveys. This is at times annoying but is preferable to the typical alternative as all offered paid surveys you are pre-approved for (no screening out a few questions in).

"Technical Issues"
Friday, September 19, 2014 by Roz

Since the old site has been redesigned, I have not been able to redeem my points. I have had several contacts to no avail. Has anyone else had this issue?
It has only recently been happening, since around the middle of Sept 2014.
Before then, I had never had a problem.

"Technical Problems, Dismissive, Lowered Payouts"
Thursday, September 18, 2014 by Stephanie

I used to love this panel. They paid $5 per survey and were easy to reach. Over the years the lady has become cocky. She's extremely dismissive when there's an issue, even if you have screen shot proof it was their mistake.
Also, they've lowered their payout to $3. I'm extremely disappointed in them.
