"Lost my loyalty"
May 26, 2015 by Lois from United Kingdom

I'm not one for giving 'half a star' reviews unless the site really is a complete scam. In saying that, Viewsbank clearly isn't a scam, it has just gone downhill very rapidly.

I was pennies away from the threshold rate of £6, until suddenly and randomly, they changed it to £12. Fair enough, all sites have their own payout rates, but considering Viewsbank only give you surveys worth pennies - literally, I have been taking 2 question surveys for 4p - it will take you years to get to £12. The £6 I have only just reached has taken me just under 12 months to earn!

I contacted the site, annoyed as I had just reached the £6 mark, and they replied that the change had been advertised on their site. For one thing, Viewsbank should have emailed every single one of their members who have been mislead. For another, when they say 'advertised', they mean wrote about in their blog which lets be real - nobody reads. Clearly lots of people had emailed with the same problem as the blog post got flooded with annoyed panel members saying that they were done with the site. They have actually taken down the blog post now with no indication of having listened to its members.

In the blog post they said quite proudly that they were still a site with one of the lowest redemption rates. This is fair enough (although I can think of LOADS with lower than £12) but I can reach £100 with another site on a higher payout rate, a lot faster than I can with Viewsbank on a lower one.

All in all, I am disgusted with the change and can't believe that a site that already is much lower quality than others, can justify cheating their members out of their own hard EARNED cash. When we joined the site, we were told one thing, and now we are being given another.

I do not recommend this site to anybody who does not wish to be taken advantage of.


"Do NOT join"
May 25, 2015 by casey from United Kingdom

Do not join this site, they do not care about their members and change the redemption amount without notifying us first. You get stupid little, waste of time surveys which will take ages to get to the redemption amount.


"very poor site"
May 22, 2015 by CHRISTINE from United Kingdom

I joined Viewsbank over 12 months ago. Their threshold used to be £6. This has recently been raised to £12. When it was raised my balance was £4. I completed 2 surveys a week ago and my balance was not updated. The surveys are really poorly paid 11 pence is average. Lots of members are complaining about not being credited with surveys they have done. Also polls, which are suggested by the same old members ( and are now the main activity on their website) are unpaid. I contacted them and complained. The response I received was terse and rude. No apology no offer to update my balance. Just an offer to unsubscribe me if I wasn't happy. I had said in my email that the site had become unethical, which from lots of members points of view is true. Rob, who replied to my email took exception to my comments and sited technical problems as the reason for members balances not being updated. If this is the reason it has been going on for months. I have now unsubscribed, losing my balance of just over £4. Avoid this website. They pay very poorly and now the threshold is £12 it would take for ever to cash out.


"Worth Joining maybe"
January 13, 2015 by John from United Kingdom

I have been with them for about six months and have had three payments from them totaling over £23. Could have had more if I accepted assignments offered or checked their site more often. Had a couple of small glitches which they sorted quickly to my satisfaction in a friendly and helpful way.
UPDATE 10.01.2014.
I still like this company but can no longer say they sort glitches quickly. On at least two separate occasions I have needed to chase them weeks later for a reply and the latest query is still waiting a reply after four months on their system.
Update 13.01.15
Been waiting weeks for them to sort out a mistake that they made and they said they would get back to me, but that was on 14.12.2014 and I have sent two more emails since then. Neither have been replied to.


"GONE VERY FAR DOWNHILL"
August 11, 2014 by Judith from United Kingdom

Was pretty good initially when I joined in May 2013, with fairly regular mini-surveys with payouts of between 5p and 20p and chances for you to have your details used to find prices on comparison sites, etc. Payout is £6, so you cane see, it takes a fair few mini-surveys to get going.
However, over the past two months it has all gone down hill - they have re-vamped the look of the site but this has not helped and, in my opinion, has made it worse.
As you can post views on many subjects there does seem to be a feeling amongst members that if you are one of those that spend 24/7 on the site, are extremely sycophantic and tell them how good they are, you are the ones likely to receive the pick of what they are pleased to call 'assignments'.
There is a lot of unrest on the site at the moment about the lack of surveys and people being told that 'staff are on holiday' - most, like me, think that most companies have staff cover for holidays - don't they?
All-in-all, I have really gone off this site and, sadly, no longer recommend it.
