Did Not Receive Payment!!!

August 29, 2023 by Sue from United States

These disgusting people did not send my my paypal payment of $15. They come up with every excuse to avoid paying me. I would not recommend them to anyone.

Impossible to get surveys. Rejected unilaterally. Still making money on offer walls. Transferred $177.00 earned from various offer wall opportunities and money was transferred to PayPal within seconds.

unable to get gift cards.

July 24, 2023 by vicki from United States

So, after 120 hours of work i sent away for 2 $30 Dardens gift certificates. this was May 22 and we were planning to celebrate when our house went under contract. So, Friday decided to get them out of computer and received a notice saying THE LINK HAS EXPIRED. CLICK HERE TO HAVE A NEW LINK SENT. well, clicked both of them many times with no response. Looked all over their site and couldn't find anywhere to write someone who could help. Couldn't find anywhere to do that. Looks like our contract is falling through [less than perfect house had a low price because it is a less than perfect house] a bear broke through what I thought was our predator proof chicken coop and ripped one of our chickens to shreds, which is NOT typical bear behavior so we have a crazy bear on our hands, and I can't even get my gift cards. It hasn't been a good day. Can someone help PLEASE.

Payout problem

July 20, 2023 by Aric from United States

Yesterday my verification code was not sent. After requesting another, not sent. A third time prompted me of too many requests. Had to wait 12 more hours. What gives?

these guys are super cheap with the survey payouts for the time it takes to do them...if you don't get screened out first. BEST TO AVOID THIS ONE unless your time doesn't mean anything to you.
