REDEEMING REWARDS

checkmark No points system
Accrue a balance of $8.00 (or 4 GBP) in your account, receive a PayPal payment within 48 hours of request and sometimes even instantly. $10 USD (£5) minimum account balance required for Amazon vouchers.

Register for Paid Surveys and Cash Out With PayPal or Amazon

Crowdology offers cash for each survey completed. 5 minute surveys pay $0.50 and after a balance of $8.00 (or £4 in the UK) is accrued in your account, you can withdraw your earnings to your PayPal account. Alternatively, choose to receive an Amazon voucher. Surveys pay anywhere from $0.40 - $10 each.

Types of Surveys Offered

Online surveys on everyday topics, brand-name household products and current issues. Crowdology stresses that their surveys are not boring!

Survey Lengths

The surveys themselves are quite short, ranging from 2 to 20 minutes in length and award cash upon successful completion - there are no complex points systems to worry about as cash is awarded each time a survey is finished.

Sweepstakes

Sweepstakes are held sporadically and usually upon registering to the Crowdology panel. You can also be entered into sweepstakes by sharing Crowdology with your friends via email invite.

Some of the prizes Crowdology members have won include Bose Quiet Comfort Noise Cancelling Headphones, Spotify Premium Subscriptions and ASOS Vouchers, just to name a few.

Redemption Process

In order to withdraw from your account, you will need to have at least $8.00 in your Crowdology account (or £4 in the UK) as well as a PayPal account to transfer your Crowdology funds to. This company does not pay out rewards via check. The time between the request and the balance landing in your PayPal account is on average 48 hours. Also, if you use Amazon Payment, it could take up to 4 weeks before you see your money.

Don’t bother.

February 22, 2022 by Paul from United Kingdom

Not only do they take some of the money you’ve earned for “PayPal” requests, after a few weeks you will be blocked from completing surveys for no apparent reason. Awful and highly suspect company avoid at all costs.

Taking money for doing surveys!

December 31, 2021 by Shaun from United Kingdom

I've been with Crowdology for a while now. I knew that they suffered from numerous screen-outs when I joined, but I accepted that. However, recently, things have gotten worse on there. I think the last straw for me was that they now take money earned from surveys OUT of your account under the guise of "corrections" after you've spent ages completing the surveys themselves. So, when my account got over £4, I cashed-out for the very last time.

UPDATE: And now they've closed my account (probably due to this review), because I can't log into it anymore. You have to admit that really is a VERY PETTY thing to do, and sums up the nature of this company. So my advice to you all is: AVOID! AVOID! AVOID!

Low payment

September 29, 2021 by Fraser from United Kingdom

I have used them for 3 years and only managed 15 cash outs for around the £4-£5 mark each time. Lots of surveys don't work now and they take a 2% fee for Paypal withdrawals.

In my opinion this website is not worth the time and effort it takes to get to the payment threshold.

Banned and not paid

August 23, 2021 by Sandra from United States

There are hundreds of complaints on Cint-related panels. Many of us were banned and not paid. Cint took our money without giving a reason!
Don't even try! I analyzed the traffic and realized they recently changed their fraud-detection provider to ******ax, known for it's unreasonable and false-positive fraud detection algorithms. Each false-positive detection makes your fraud score greater even though you're not banned until you withdraw.
Hey, Cint! Do you want to lose your business using unethical services, strategies and algorithms?

Suspicious Site

June 18, 2021 by Dillon from United States

I had no issues with this site whatsoever UNTIL I requested a payout from them. I had been with the site for a little while, had taken many surveys, and never had any complaints.

I finally requested a $10 Amazon.com gift card payout. From my understanding, the payouts are supposed to be automatic, but after 24 hours of waiting I still had not received it. I could've lived with waiting a little longer, but when I tried logging into my account the next day I was continuously taken to an error page. When I tried to contact them via e-mail to ask them about what was going on, the e-mail wouldn't even send. All of this leads me to believe that my account was unjustly terminated.

From what I've read from other users about this site, I'm sure I would've been accused of "violating their terms". This would be untrue as I always answered the questions to the best of my ability.

I have used many survey sites over the years. Some of them are still great, others are getting very stingy/suspicious with the way they handle their business. However, this site takes the cake.

I've never had a site terminate me simply for reaching a payout goal. Ridiculous.
