I find this crap...Angus Reid takes way too long to cash out your rewards..they make you cash out at $50 which took me over a year to do..you're lucky if you get 1 survey a month...way too long...not enough surveys...waste of time
I've been a member of Angus Reid for several years and it has been a great experience. The surveys are high quality and interesting. I've never had any problems redeeming rewards. Sometimes the survey invitations seem to slow down but it's always worth the wait.
Angus Reid appears to have stopped paying earned rewards. They say they will pay but do not. This have been true for 4-5 months and they have removed all individual contact links.
Avoid Angus Reid Forum.
Late last year, I applied to redeem my "survey dollars". When I visited the site recently, the survey dollars were still sitting there, but couldn't be redeemed because I had already applied. What I finally determined is they had credited my Aeroplan account for points, even though there is no mention on the site of Aeroplan as an option (has it been discontinued? who knows). The redemption was fairly good, so I will keep doing the surveys, but I hate dealing with a company whose record of my account is so confusing.
I see many reviewers commenting on the fact that it takes too long to get to the $50 cash out minimum, and that the surveys are not very highly compensated for. I can relate to the fact that I spend up to 15 minutes completing a complicated survey only to earn $1 or $1.50. It can be tiring.
I joined three years ago, and spent a good year painfully trying to accumulate the requited survey dollars. It felt like it would take forever. Luckily, I was offered a couple of quite high paying surveys in a row, which pushed me up. I was able to redeem for 4000 air miles. The transaction to get them deposited was quick and simple.
Good rewards, but need to be easier and less frustrating to attain. After I redeemed my reward, I stopped. I recently signed back up and I notice that surveys are a bit more frequent, and the dollar amount you get paid for doing the surveys seems to be a bit higher.
Will see how it goes
