Almost worthless

October 30, 2019 by Jace from United States

Sorry I ever signed up. Not worth the effort. Rewards start at 5,000 pts and most surveys give 100 or 200 pts though occasionally there is a 500 pointer or even more. HOWEVER - the rewards are done so sneakily that even if you get 5000 points to redeem, 95% of the gift card rewards are a minimum of $6, with most being much more than than that. Also, the first few surveys take SO long to process that it's almost a given that Bizrate is gathering information from your cookies to sell to other companies. Plus you have to submit your physical address (not just email) to redeem a reward even if it's an electronic reward. The whole thing smacks of brazen overmarketing. I don't think it's worth the effort, and now I'm expecting to receive an onslaught of junk mail in my actual physical mailbox . . . we'll see.

UPDATE: I reduced my rating from 1.5 to 1 star. I didn't get the expected onslaught of spam mail, but my opinion of the surveys is getting more negative as time goes by. I would say that 4 out of 5 times I begin one of their surveys, I am kicked out after answering numerous questions (not just demographic questions) with a message that says something like, "Sorry, we have enough respondents for this survey," or "Unfortunately this survey is not the right fit for you." Meanwhile I've spent substantial time providing useful and specific information and opinions that the survey company undoubtedly will use anyway and get paid for even though I don't even get partial points the way some other surveys give you (like JetBlue's Points for Surveys, where you almost always get partial points for surveys that you're kicked out of even after answering just a few questions). I have wasted MORE TIME with Bizrate's surveys than any other survey I've ever used (that includes the JetBlue surveys, eRewards (which I also left for similar reasons), MySurvey, Harris Poll, and Survey Monkey. It's taking forever to accumulate the minimum 5000 points needed to redeem a measly $5 Bizrate reward, and when I look at the rewards offered, they're pathetic and designed to be difficult to redeem. This is a ripoff survey operation that I would not recommend anyone taking up unless you like self-torture. I'm continuing because I don't like the idea of giving up the points I've earned so far, but I keep having second thoughts about whether it's worth it to continue, which any sane person probably would tell me it's not. Don't waste your time unless you don't mind spending about a year to get a $5 reward.

I'm not technically a member-read on

September 16, 2019 by Elyse from United States

I can't unsubscribe because I'm not even a member?
Story: I've been doing their surveys for years & finally wanted to know how many points I accumulated. I e-mailed asking & received a generic response, just saying sorry for the issue & once it's fixed they will get back to me. They did get back again ONLY saying things are fixed. I saw something to review my points & was SHOCKED to see the tiny amount! So decided to unsubscribe which surprised me even more...it bounced back said "NOT A MEMBER"!!!!!!!!!??????? Uh, WHAT!?!? I can't unsubscribe because I'm not a member??? It HAD to be a mistake, did it again today when receiving another survey from them (after spamming & unsubscribing) but no-it bounced back again..."Technical details of permanent failure: Leave failed, not a member" I copied this!

Time wasted

April 26, 2019 by Stanley from United States

After numerous reviews completed and submitting my request for my reward, I was told that I had not completed all the surveys and the surveys I did complete were done fraudulently. I replied to this notice (email) and said that I was the only one completing the surveys and I answered truthfully.

This was a waste of time because of no reward and some of the surveys will lead you 20 minutes into the survey and them kick you out because "you were not a good fit " for this survey.

NOT WORTH THE EFFORT

April 20, 2019 by TAEQUAN from United States

I joined Bizrate around Feb. 2018. They were alright at first, although there are other survey companies that pay better. But in the last few months they have gotten remarkably worse, refusing to look into claims that the surveys were completed but never redirected back to the company's finishing page. They routinely respond with 'canned' messages as opposed to actually looking into your claim. THEY'RE NOT PAYING ENOUGH TO BE SO ARROGANT AND DISMISSIVE. While I have made enough with Bizrate to redeem a few gift cards, I will not be dealing with them moving forward. I recommend alerting the BBB to their shady business practices if they try this with anyone else.

Ok

December 8, 2018 by Renee from United States

This site is ok. The cashouts can be used for purchases with a wide variety of stores, but the pay outs are very low.
