They've had pros and cons over the 5 years or so ive used them. They used to only send checks or let you spend the points online/gift cards, eventually they implemented paypal.
About a year after this they raised the cashout from 1000 points to 1200 and when their surveys used to be anywhere from 30-150 points usually, now they're 30 points 99% of the time.
Again another site I used to love that don't use much if at all anymore still have points left there. Another pro though the whole time I've been there they HAVE NEVER banned me or "froze" my account.
I've been with this panel several years and used to have success with them. Over the past year or so, it's been very frustrating to deal with them. Their payouts per survey are much lower, and it takes a long time to cash out. I used to be able to cash out $50 Paypal each month, but now it only seems to occur every few months. They are not responsive or cooperative whenever I've had technical issues, or if I get an error when completing a finished survey. Their site is extremely slow. I have a lot of log in issues. I stick with them, because I've been with them for so long, but they obviously don't value my loyalty.
Got my account disabled before I could cash out for no apparent reason
DO NOT USE
I complained that I couldn't access one of their surveys because there was no ARROW to continue with the survey.
Their response: Your request has been solved. To reopen this request, reply to this email. Support Team (GlobalTestMarket)
This was their "solution" to my issue: Thank you for making us aware of the problem you experienced. We apologize for any frustration that our survey may have caused. However, please know, we do our best to make sure our panelists’ survey experiences are positive. But, sometimes technical errors do occur. Unfortunately, due to the issues you are experiencing, you will not be able to complete this survey. Kind regards, The TechSay Team My reaction to their "kind regards" remarks: Aren't you going to try to solve this issue or credit me for trying to complete a survey that has a technical issue, due to no fault of my own? DID NOT SOLVE ANYTHING! :(
I joined this survey company about 8 weeks ago and I received lots of survey requests during the first 6 weeks. I did get screened out of some but I still managed to complete an average of 6 per week at about 30 pts per survey. However this changed as soon as I got within 120 pts of the 1087 pts needed to take my rewards as cash. I have not received many survey invites in the last 10 days and have only managed to qualify to do one of them. I get screened out much more and sometimes after doing one for about 10 mins. I had a request today which I replied to within 30 secs and was advised that the survey had been completed by enough members and I needed to be quicker ! I am skeptical that I will ever get my 1087 points and this Company will keep stalling and never give me the chance of completing enough surveys for me to get my reward. If I can then I will update this in the future to let people know the outcome.
