Harris Poll offers their members the opportunity to earn gift cards in exchange for their participation. Once you earn 1250 points (worth $10), you can request an e-gift voucher from places like Amazon, iTunes, Starbucks, Walmart, ESPN, and more.
Get points for disqualifications
If you attempt to complete a survey, but are disqualified in the process, you will receive 15 HIpoints as well as an entry into the HIstakes draw. As well, you will be offered the opportunity to try qualifying for other available surveys.
Online surveys typically take anywhere between 15-20 minutes to complete. Short surveys will take around 5 minutes, and very long ones are around 25 minutes. These reasonable survey lengths will keep your attention and prevent you from getting bored too quickly!
Participate in a variety of different research
Like most survey panels, Harris Poll offers online surveys, but they also offer their members the opportunity to participate in things like focus groups (chatroom style or even bulletin board style), in person focus groups, telephone surveys and direct mail assignments. It is always your choice whether or not you'd like to participate in these special opportunities. Alternatively, you might be contacted to download software to your computer or mobile phone, again, for special research assignment purposes.

Chance to win $10,000 every quarter
HarrisPoll gives away a $10,000 USD prize every quarter to one lucky winner in their Histakes - the Harris Poll Online Sweepstakes. Entries are received when being disqualified for surveys, as well as for things like short surveys that may not award points. Winners names are published on the HIstakes winners page and this list is kept up to date.
Eligibility: USA/Canada residents must be 13+ to participate. Users from other countries must be age 14+.
This website is now a waste of time. It took me a very long time to build up enough points for a gift card. Not to mention, I rarely qualified for the few surveys that I got. There surveys were also very repetitive, and boring. I only got one gift card from this website after being a member for 2-3 years.
I belong to Harrispoll.com. A woman named Jane H. stole my points and ordered a $50 Walmart gift card. I notified Harris poll right away and still after 10 emails, they have done nothing! I checked and she has spent the entire $50. Harris poll never even verified her name, phone, or address against my account. They just let her spend it! And now I wonder if it was done by an employee. It was ordered 4 hours after I received an email about the order. If you have points there, cash in and get out! They don't care and don't help! No phone, only email to contact!
My friend had their account and was cancelled saying that she rushed thru surveys. I joined, was very careful, and guess what, i just got cancelled for 'rushing thru' surveys. interesting that it was just as I was about to redeem my points.
Like many other respondents, can't login, having FINALLY got a response from their help(?) desk told account deactivated as not used for over 12 months.
Pointed out that we'd discussed account by email only 4 months back, since then deathly silence!.
Obviously they can't bear being shown they're in the wrong?
This site is getting worse by the day. I have contacted support no less than 6 times since 2/8/17 regarding the ShopTracker update that I have not received my 300 points for. I keep getting form emails back advising me to "wait 24-48 hours for points to appear". So, it's actually been 648 hours as of today. Pretty sure I have their two day time frame covered. Will wait till I get to my next award level, then I am gone. Too many other LEGIT sites out there to be dealing with this hot mess.
