Consumer Village Surveys
Consumer Village was established in 2007 and is a unique online forum where you can share your opinion about thousands of global companies. Becoming a panel member is easy, just fill out a 2-minute membership survey. Start changing the future of your favorite products now!
Consumer Village members can take part in surveys, focus groups and discussion boards on the hottest topics. You can even create your own polls! Consumer Village also is concerned with helping charities. They donate $0.25 per 500 points redeemed for charity and 5% of all tokens earned by panelists is donated to charities from their own corporate pockets!
Members can accumulate tokens towards Amazon gift vouchers. Rewards correlate to how much you participate in the discussions and surveys. Focus groups are awarded with cash paid by checks, and can be around $75. Tokens are also earned towards sweepstakes each time you respond to a new sponsored topic. Sweepstakes are done monthly and 30, $10 prizes are awarded.
Panelists can redeem their accounts when they have accumulated $5 or 500 Tokens. Rewards are calculated at the end of each month and then dispersed via e-mail to panel members by the 15th of the next month. Amazon gift vouchers are awarded immediately when they are cashed out!
Survey invitations and app
Get more survey invitations by completing the "Profile Surveys" on your account. They can be found in the “New Surveys” area located on the website. Also, make sure to take part in surveys or discussions quickly by responding as soon as possible, as once they are filled they may be closed. A great way to do this is to download the Consumer Village mobile application named i°C. This allows users to respond quickly to survey invites or other offers.
Eligibility: United States residents only, 18 +
I've been trying to cash out for a week.
The cash out function does not respond and I have sent 2 inquiries and have not received any response.
Does anyone know how to contact them or Gongos directly?
OK STILL no redemption code and NO response.
I was contacted by Gongos and invited to participate in a 2 day panel that starts next week, but, instead of being excited, I'm wondering if I'll even be compensated since I'm having such difficulty with Consumer Village? SMH So one of the moderators Theresa reached out to me and it took 3 days of back and forth e-mails but she did not give up until she found the problem and fixed it. She was very kind and did not give up. I truly felt like a valued member and wish all site were this member focused. 5 STARS! Thanks Theresa
The good: I've never had a problem with a survey I've been sent - either I qualify for it, or I don't, it tells me that in less than a minute, and I still get a dime or two in credit. Surveys I have qualified for, have also paid generally fairly well for the time spent taking them. I especially like one type of survey that I don't often see elsewhere, but have seen several times here, where they just post a short list of questions, you give free-form responses to that list of questions, then you get credit for it, no mindless bubble-filling required :). But the regular surveys are pretty short, too, for what they pay.
The bad: surveys are *stupidly rare*. After several months with this site, I've cashed out once ($5 in Amazon), and am almost able to cash out a second time. So not terribly impressive on that score. Their site is super clunky, too, but... functional, I guess. So no reason not to sign up, just don't expect to make much.
I like this site although the survey invites are pretty rare. I've only cashed out once, for $5 , but received my reward pretty fast. The surveys are short and different, and if you don't qualify, you still receive a small incentive (5-25 cents).
After being on this panel for awhile I was asked to join more communities.I like that they have what I call a bank so you can always see how much you are owed and when they will deliver it to your account.Plus they tell you up front if you qualify or not so you don't waste a lot of time trying to qualify for a survey.
I have been a member for a few years, and I like the short surveys compared to other sites. They are further apart, but have a much improved acceptance rate, and an easier cash out threshold. They have a couple sister sites that according to your stats, you may get an invitation for. They pay with amazon codes, which usually arrive before you can check your inbox.
