Most surveys tend to award between 30-160 points (depending on the length). Get disqualified for a survey and still earn 5 points
Ive been a member of this site for about 3 years now. I usually only make about $25 a month because they don't send surveys every day and you don't always qualify. Pays 5 points for disqualifying, and 2500 points will = $25 if you choose giftcard or amazon credits. Quick payment times too, never waited more then 2 days. Also really fast and polite customer service though you wont need to contact them often.
You have to get a lot of points for something you really would like to have. Never seem to qualify, but I do get that big 5 points for my efforts.
I chose to update my rating. They are good & bad, I used to get a ton of chances to take a survey. Been a member for 3 years +. Now I hardly get the chance. But I do like the rewards. I have gotten my daughter & husband some nice gifts. I just hate the change in the lack of surveys. I will not give up yet! Tho soon if they keep it up!
I usually wait til after I cash-out, when I want to dump a site. Nobody wants to knowingly work for free. But, in some cases, it was not worth it to CONTINUE to work for free. This was one of them. 5 years later--if I stayed--I'd still be trying for my first pay-out. No thanx...it's been fun, but we'll say goodbye & CALL IT A DAY!!! (Albeit, a long day.)
These guys used to be great. The zoomarang survey engine was great. My favorite of all survey companies, now they are using another engine.which is horrible. As other have said, the points have also dropped in half and you can barely qualify. Something is rotten in Denmark here.
