Logged in in to find they are closing down on 01-Sept-2017, Fortunately managed to get some of my points converted to money (I Hope)
I have an issue (for the better part of a year now) where any survey I try to start from the desktop results in an error message <-- Invalid QueryString Supplied --> Id is null
I keep contacting their help team but don't even get an acknowledgement of the email, never mind a reply.
Avoid them as you're wasting your time
I am saving you a lot of time, effort and frustration by giving you this tip. You WILL NOT receive a cash out from askGFK! After the months that it took me to earn the 2,500 points required to earn a reward, my request was sent to a 3rd party vendor. There are NO cash rewards, NO E-vouchers, NO gift cards, NO virtual debit cards. The prize catalog is like what you might see at a carnival, Chuck E. Cheese, or Dave & Busters, where worthless prizes are offered for an impossibly high number of points. Your 2,500 points will get you nothing except a chance to give it away in a sweepstakes. In the Reward Marketplace, you would need over 24,000 points to get a Timex Men's Ironman watch, 54,000 for a pair of Ray-Bans, or almost 296,000 points for a Le Creuset enameled cookware set. It's not worth it, and they should be up-front about this total lack of payout.
So I joined the panel site thinking that it would be like every other one. Not at all. I was only able to do one survey. I asked in the support section and it has still been 3 days without any response and no surveys to take. I'm going to stick with Rewards1, Mintvine, instagc, or Oneopinion, which are way better survey sites than this one. I usually don't leave bad reviews, but I feel like this one deserves it. I mean what survey site doesn't reward their users with Amazon, Paypal, or even cash? Don't even get me started on the rewards they offer - it's basically worthless. Should've spent my time trying to find out what rewards that they have to offer.
I really like GFK. I have cashed out many times.They have very high payouts and I'm always doing their surveys.
Ditto on below! Waste of time! Don't bother. All it is, is advertisements and instead of making money, they find ways to ask you for money! Ridiculous!!!
