Survey Taking Experience

Earn Points for Surveys

E-Poll awards points for taking surveys, which can vary between 500-1000+ points, depending on the length and complexity of the survey.

Survey Types

E-Poll offers a few types of surveys, including video surveys that may require you to watch specific television shows “live” on your TV. Online surveys usually correspond to entertainment-related marketing research, such as surveys about TV watching habits. These are often geared towards younger individuals.

As a member of E-poll you may be asked to watch new TV commercials or in some cases even watch and review DVDs that are sent directly to your home! The amount of surveys you receive will vary depending on availability. Occasionally you may receive 1-2 surveys a day, but at other times you may only receive 1-2 surveys a month.

Is Epoll Legit?

There's no reason to think that is anything but legitimate. Epoll is not a scam and has been providing paid surveys for over a decade. Although people may have different experiences being a member of the panel, Epoll is perfectly legitimate.

need to payout faster

December 14, 2021 by Kara from United States

surveys are few and far between, and painfully takes 6 weeks to get your 5 dollars or your gift card but very easy surveys, judge for yourself. you get very few surveys, maybe 1 a month and the payout starts at 5 bucks but it takes 6 weeks to get. very slow website

Great site

October 11, 2021 by Marla from United States

I have been doing these surveys for many years now and they are easy to follow, great to take and very interesting. I hope to be able to continue to do them as long as they send them.

Good Company

They do not offer a lot of surveys; however they pay better than most and your gift card comes way quicker than they say it will.

Legit BUT Not Worth It

August 28, 2021 by Constance from United States

Been with them for a few years and they do pay when you finally earn enough points to request a reward... unlike some other sites that let you keep taking surveys but then suddenly terminate your account for a bogus reason the moment you try to cashout. So, yes they are legit.

However, there are problems with e-poll that make it not worth the time and effort IMHO. Here's a common real example: you have to watch a 45 minute TV episode then evaluate it for 1000 points. By the time you watch plus answer the many questions, you will have spent an hour. If you convert the the points to the best bang-for-your-buck reward (18,750 points for $30 paypal or various eGift cards) it calculates out to $1.59. So, they're paying you a buck and a half per hour. Which is both insulting and pathetic. Particularly since the Hollywood TV and movie studios behind most of these surveys are surely paying big bucks to e-poll. It's just that e-poll isn't fairly passing it along. There are also shorter surveys but they also pay much less points. And you have to waste extra time at the start of every.single.one of them by answering the same demographic questions e-poll already has on file in your profile. Very frustrating.

On to the 2nd problem... since they are a niche survey company (surveys about tv, movies, and celebrity recognition/opinion) you don't receive many invitations. Even though I've been with them several years, never received any warnings about rushed or incomplete responses, and am in a demographic that's supposed to be highly valuable to Hollywood, I can receive as little a 2 survey some months up to about 4 in others, with an average of 3 per month. Like I said earlier, survey points vary. In my experience, I average about 2400 points per month. If you go for the best value rewards, which are 18750 points, that calculates out to roughly 8 months to earn $30.

3rd and final problem... even though their rewards are electronic (paypal or eGift cards) they still take 4-6 weeks to process the request. And, no, that's not a generic terms and conditions they quote - it really does take that long. Bearing in mind electronic rewards can be processed ELECTRONICALLY and therefore show up in your email within minutes, e-poll is obviously taking 4-6 weeks just so they can hold onto your money all that extra time.

I've given real world stats based on direct experience over multiple years. Use that info and come to your own conclusion. For me, the data is clear... far too long to earn a decent payout + far too long for them to actually send it = not worth it.
