Used to be good

March 10, 2019 by Dorlaina from United States

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.

Difficult to earn rewards, quick redeemption

January 16, 2020 by kris from United States

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.

Dont payout promptly if at all

September 17, 2010 by jay from United States

I've only been with this company for 4 months. In those months I've dilligently completed most of the infrequent surveys they've sent (about every month and a half). For each survey I've completed, I received 'tokens'. 500 tokens is the minimum payout. After waiting to get to the payout level-I was told I'd be sent a $5 gift code on the 15th of the month after the payout level is reached. So, I waited-after reminding them-they sent me a code. That was invalid. I've contacted them to fix the problem to no avail. Now, other members are complaining of the same happening to them. If this company ever does take new members-I'd suggest asking current members if they're being compensated.

Points for not qualifying

December 5, 2016 by Jill from United States

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).

Decent, not a lot of money to be made

May 5, 2017 by Adam from United States

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.
