"Pays, good amount of surveys, but big downhill"
July 29, 2015 by g from United States

They always pay make no mistake, give you a good amount of surveys, a lot, but here's the deal.

65% (or 2/3rds) of surveys you will screen out, and this was always the case. It use to be okay because the 1/3 you could complete paid well/okay.

Drastic dilution/pay cut per survey of nearly 30% and 20% last year so they can make higher income (because you know their clients aren't cutting pay) is a bad decision.

I find myself abandoning surveys after the first few minutes, and some surveys even underestimate timeframe greatly. And now it takes double the time to reach 1000 points. On top of that, perks plus raised "paypal" withdrawals by 20 points or 9% a few months ago, but left gift card points alone.

So the slew of changes here is pretty bad. I went from 4.5 stars here to 2.5 now. Reputable yes, but definitely cheap and interested solely in screwing panelists for higher profits. May discontinue entirely

"Help me please"
July 24, 2015 by kawther from Australia

I joined gtm for 4 months and i am so happy that i have reached 1248 points. But when i wanted to redeem $5 it still says that i have to reach 1000 points when i already did. can someone please tell if this ever happened to them and what was the solution, How do i redeem

"Stay Away"
July 24, 2015 by Andrew from Hong Kong

Their so-called screening process is definitely trash. Sending me numerous emails to suggest there may be available survey and then screen me out throughout 80% of that invitation. USELESS and HOPELESS company.

"GTM use to better"
July 15, 2015 by Al from United States

A legit survey company who's surveypolice panel ratings have steadily diminished in the last 2 years. Feel free to read the abundance of similar comments from other members.

"Waste of Time - DON'T BOTHER WITH THEM"
July 11, 2015 by Shaun from United Kingdom

Been with GTM for a couple of years and never really had a problem - until recently that is... Like a few previous people have mentioned, I've noticed that the value of the surveys have dropped drastically (in terms of points offered - used to be regularly 30 or 40 - now more like 10 or 22 - so having to do twice the amount of surveys to get to cash out) *BUT* also (like others) I've been getting screened on the very last question - more than annoying when you've spent 15 mins doing a survey... I was thinking about giving them up - however, they made that decision for me - I queried a couple of surveys where I had been screened out on the last question (previously they had been very good about these situations and generally awarded you the points) - not in this case - they closed my account!!! Fortunately for me, just after a cash-out so was only minimal points in there (especially as last few surveys I had done had been for 10 or 15 points anyway) - now, the more cynical side of me wonders if GTM are struggling... My last cash-out was for a PayPal payment, and again, like another reviewer has said, it took GTM nearly a month to pay out [as opposed to the promised 5-10 days]) - So, as that saying goes, So long and thanks for all the fish!
