They were OK years ago. Even though I only got 1-2 surveys a week and maybe qualified for one about every 2 months , at least all was in house. Now , it seems that they have partnered with other survey sites and instead of getting screeners from ACOP like you used to, now I am seeing multiple survey invites a day. Sounds good , right? WRONG!! Almost all are from non-ACOP sites and are bunches of varied questions that do not seem to be anything more that profile ones. The question topics jump around and do not seem focused on any specific area. Very few are ever qualified for. They all seem to be screener types. The points earned are very low and getting to cash out stage takes forever. Cashing out will really try one's patience as once you cash out , it can take over 2 months to get the check!!
I am re-reviewing ACOP because since my first review things have changed. It's still a legitimate panel and they do send surveys but not many and then I rarely qualify even though the surveys fit my demographics. I have also grown tired of waiting 2 to 3 months to get paid and then I only get paid after sending 2 to 3 emails requesting my payment be processed.
Used to be good. Promise to pay in 6-8 weeks. If you wait 12 weeks and continually hound them, you'll get paid. But not sure about even that in the future.
I had not read anything from Survey Police and had joined. The website looked very nice. I took a few survey (which turned out to be screeners.) I have 15 points in my account. I emailed support about their referral program and was answered by a support staff lady. She explained everything in detail and then I responded letting her know how horrible the referral program as well as overview of what she had shared with me about the site.
I then came here to write a simple negative review. I was too late though as it seemed everybody had beat me to the punch and left a 1/2 star terrible review.
It's my pleasure to follow suit.
Stay away from this site!
As so many others have stated, there are few surveys but they do pay well when they have them.
As for payments, what a total joke. I know they do everything BIG in Texas, but in the rest of the country 6-8 weeks = 42-56 days, with ACOP, the fastest payment I have ever received was 95 days, and another that was 118 days.
From the time you request a payment until the time it gets approved is longer than it would take to walk the request to from one end of the country to the other, maybe it goes via a slow boat to China.
UPDATE - 11/08/2016: WOW is an understatement, ACOP has now officially beat their previous record of 188 days, I just received my next (and last) payment in a fast speed of 146 days! Someone needs to teach them how to use PayPal!
