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.

If I could give them a minus grade it would be a minus five for FFFFF!
Well, today is the day I finally quit this survey site. When I first joined things went along well with no problems but for some time now issues keep coming up and the last one was the last straw. And the sad part is that they don't seem to care. And I will be letting them know how I feel and that I left his review on this site. The last straw issue was I was due points for a survey I took IN DECEMBER 2016. I have been writing and writing and the first response I got was, oh, sorry if you have been trying to contact us. Please write back on this ticket - don't open a one. So I replied to the e/mail. I looked and looked on the site for a place that would let me respond to the ticket # assigned to the case but nothing so, hence, I sent the email. Again no response. And for the record I keep track of every survey I take with notes and sent those along with the new request I made. So each time I reached out to them with this I sent my notes along with it stating that I can't find anything on the site to respond to an open ticket so opening a new one, along with the new ticket number(s) and the only response I have been receiving the last three times is "that it can take up to 24 to 48 hrs to receive pts for a completed survey. And even though my notes keep saying this is from DECEMBER they keep saying the same thing. So, they are either ignoring me and hoping I go away or they have lousy people working for them who don't care and/or don't read the requests or whatever. So, I am quitting and giving up my 200+ pts for I don't have the time to waste with them. And the other sad part is I don't think they care. They have plenty of other panelists so they just go along their merry way. And remember, this is only one of the issues I have with them as my dealings with them just keep getting worse and worse. Again, if I could give them a minus grade it would be a minus five for FFFFF!
02/20/17 UPDATE: I sent a request via Harris Poll website in which one of the options was to unsubscribe from their site letting them know I left a review here on the Survey Police and nothing and I am still getting e/mails for surveys. So, now I guess I will unsubscribe from the email and see if that works. Guess they didn't read my request - again - and they don't seem to care.
I've been a HP member for over 10 years and have always completed my surveys and received many test products. After the first of the year I noticed I wasn't receiving any surveys,some days I'd get 2-3. When I tried logging in it said their system was hacked and wanted me to change my password. Every time I try now it says "No User could be found with the email address you provided”. I've tried contacting them 5 times though email and even left 3 voice mails and never get a return call/email. I had over 15,000 points built up which now I'll lose several hundred in gift card credits. This is the worst survey company out there and people need to stay away from them!
I am having a difficult time trying to contact Harris Poll with questions. None of the contact links on their website will work for me. Never can get through to them. And has anybody installed their ShopTracker? I finally installed it on my laptop and was supposed to receive 300 points but have not yet. So far, I have redeemed points with no problem, but surveys are sparse; but if I don't qualify for a survey, I normally receive a token for a spin for points.
Harris Polls are fun if you have some time to waste and don't mind accruing points over long periods of time. The invites are not as frequent as other survey sites (e.g. Opinion Outpost, OneOpinion). Many of the surveys are REALLY long and the payout is tiny. You cannot cash out via PayPal. There are other gift certificates, but it takes a LONG time to accumulate points (months and months and months) given the low frequency of surveys and minimal rewards for taking surveys.
I have been a member of Harris Polls Online for years, lately I am having a terrible time trying to cash in my points! Keep telling me my birthday info is incorrect. I see that I am not the only one this is happening to. After 5 messages to customer service still no resolution. I believe my next recourse is to contact the BBB!!
