I really like this site a whole lot my only complaint is the $50.00 redemption threshold.
The $50 minimum cashout makes this panel low paying because there are not many surveys. The surveys are good just not enough of them. I don't like the sound of the new payout system.
Actually, it wasn't that grand to begin. Like the very similar YouGov, they barely pay. Period.
Initially it was very straight forward. I would get two surveys a week, about, and I would get paid an average of $1 per week. OK, fine. And if I got invited, I was in. No "Sorry, we have enough respondents." That part was great.
This went on for three years and I finally had enough to pay out.
Even so, I stupidly thought it was my fault for not trying hard enough.
This time it did 'only take a year' to gain $50. However in the last two months it got even worse. Now I am nearly always booted out in the first steps. They re-invite you to try the next hidden survey, yet it's for a draw; not cash. And doing this, it took me TWO MONTHS to gain the last $1.50 to finally cash out. In fact, I am sure the closer I got to payout, the slower the surveys came.
2010 to 2013 they went from the very rare $2 payments to the more usual $1. Earlier this year they re-vamped their system, to a mere $0.50 --- IF you got it.
And now their slow-as-death payment systems are all warning of a 'high volume' 8-12+ week payment schedule.
That's it. I am cashed out. And I will not do another free survey for them.
I have been with them for over 2 years and am only at $33.10 , you have to earn $50.00 to cash out, I am hanging in there just until I can finally cash out, have way too much time invested to discard them now!
I received very few paid surveys and it takes forever to get to $50. They send you so called profile, mosaic etc. update surveys and very few paid ones.
