While this panel was quick on redemption request it took a year to make $10. I checked daily for survey opportunities and the screenout rate is very, very high. Pass this one, There are surveys that have more satisfying return for effort.

They changed their format several yrs. ago. Used to be you'd get one $5 Amazon GC a month. Now, it takes many months to earn one gc. Also had a lively political forum, but as people left, that dried up, too.

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).
