Earn fair compensation for your participation

With Forthright surveys, you can participate in studies that are typically worth anywhere between $1-$5 each. As well, earn a $2 loyalty bonus for every 3 surveys you complete or attempt to complete! That means that even if you get disqualified from a survey, it will count towards getting your $2 bonus after 3 survey attempts/completions. They also provide loyalty credits and a bonus award for every 3 credits earned.

I love the fact that I am rewarded even if I don't qualify. InnoPoll rewards me $2.00 for every 3 surveys I don't qualify for. On the down side, I have received very few survey invitations.

Great if you have a short attention span and want immediate results

March 18, 2016 by Paul from United States

I joined Innopoll about a week ago and within that span I initially received two surveys that I didnt qualify for. The first one I got the loyalty credit but the second one did not have a loyalty credit since it was offered through a partner network. However, after I flunked that second survey, Innopoll immediately sent another survey offer to my inbox which did offer the loyalty credit. Did the survey, completed it, got my credit (have two now) and $2 in 15 minutes which promptly showed up in my Paypal, got the funds transferred into my bank account, and the funds showed up in the bank the very next day (your results may vary, it's usually 2-4 days from Innopoll to Paypal to bank)

They won't send too many surveys apparently but they do give results quick, and with a relatively quick turnaround. AND NO MINIMUM PAYOUT!

Great "consolation" reward

February 19, 2016 by Kathie from United States

I've had 3 emails with surveys since I joined about 1 month ago, but haven't qualified for the full survey.
After these 3, like they said, I received $2.00 (1 point for each attempted survey). The $2.00 was automatic and I was asked how I wanted it. I selected PayPal, verified the email address and submitted. When I logged onto PayPal seconds later, it was there.
So, while I'd prefer the full survey, the fact that failing a screener pays is nice.

Great pay per time spent, terrible pay total

February 17, 2016 by Adam from United States

I'd heard great things about this one on the *forum* side of this site, and their rewards program looked *too* good to be true, but the forum-goers pretty strongly insisted it was legit, so I gave it a try. Joined about a month ago, so now I feel like I can legitimately review it:

On one hand, yes, they are legitimate. They will legitimately send you money by paypal, in under a day, literally every time you earn money, and yes, their surveys seem to all be in working order, and pay pretty nicely for the amount of time it claims they'll take. And yes, you really are paid a bonus 2 dollars for every three surveys they send you, whether or not you're screened out of them, for a massive ~67 cents for every screenout. That's *absurd*.

On the other hand, I was only just able to verify that last thing a couple days ago: in about a month, they sent me exactly three surveys, all of which I screened out of. The screenout process was immediate and obvious, and I did indeed get 2 dollars by paypal immediately following the third one, but yeah - *fantastic* pay ratio for the amount of time you'll spend doing surveys for this site, just, in my experience, that amount of time is also sadly close to zero.
