When I Qualify I Am Aptly Rewarded

June 15, 2022 by Bena from United States

It took many months and maybe even years to ever qualify for a survey, but the first one I ever actually qualified for completely ended up paying me $150. I used to reach Schlesinger through 20|20 Panel and always seemed to be a day too late, but that was also while I was still working. Now I am retired with more time to devote and no longer qualify for anything besides health and Medicare queries. I now need to get a life so that there are other topics to qualify for.

When a participant qualifies for one of Focus Group's surveys, the payday is certainly worth it. I used to spend HOURS taking surveys that would only pay less than a dollar - that is, if I even qualified. Focus Group by Schlesinger is one I recommend highly.

I love this panel

Excellent Company - Rewarding Surveys

June 7, 2022 by Carol from United States

Being a member of Focus Group by Schlesinger has been truly a pleasure. The surveys are meaningful and give me an opportunity to share my opinions and views with companies who care about their customers. Also, I love being able to test/evaluate products, especially those that pertain to my work (technical) or my home (pet foods, etc.). Schlesinger is 100% legitimate, caring and honest.
