not paying for work completed

January 11, 2021 by Victoria from United States

Completed 2 surveys in Oct 2020- it is now Jan 2021 and i still have not been paid. i am well beyond their 6-8 week payment window. i have contacted customer support numerous times- they keep resending my cards to the wrong address, despite numerous updates. they have done it so much that Bank Of America has refused to issues additional cards. so i guess there is no way for me to get paid.
beware when dealing with this company.

UPDATE 1/9/2021: you have provided a generic email that i have used over 20 times in the last 3 months in an attempt to get paid. provide a direct email or phone number for contact. this is the response of one your coworkers: "We have contacted Bank of America. They have stated that your money is available but they are not able to reissued your card due to too many reissued request already placed for this payment. Bank of America has declined all of our request to assist in reissuing this card. We are unable to issue a replacement card."

For mentions of phone surveys

June 15, 2020 by Fred from United Kingdom

The theory is: fill a questionnaire about a medical condition, and, provided you qualify, you are invited to a remunerated and interesting survey, on the phone or others.
The practice is: fill long routine questionnaires for free, get told you qualify, and never see the rest of it.
The anticipation is: fill a review on the present site, and receive the standard email 'I am sorry [...], contact [...], and probably being served some PR to tell why the complainants are wrong.

If this company wanted to conduct serious research, it would set up real reviews with, towards the end, the question for respondents within the target group such as 'Would you be ok to be contacted for further research on the phone?'. With the present routine practice, they set up reviews that are filled for free by respondents lured into more interesting research that does not come up. I thought medical research needed to be performed with a high sense of ethics.,,

Hello Fred,

Thank you for contacting us!

We are conducting thousands of surveys each year and targeting different ages, industries, regions and characteristics. We do our very best to match you to the right survey but in some cases your profile, habits and lifestyle does not match the survey criteria you were asked to participate in.

Please keep in mind, all survey invites you receive will ask some screening questions prior to taking the actual survey. Based on your answers to those questions determines if you qualify or not for that particular study.

Fairly easy to use

Pretty easy to use only issue is you can’t cash out points whenever you want.

Interesting Focus Groups That Pay Well!!

April 15, 2020 by Donna from United States

I have done three focus groups for Schlesinger Group/Inspired Opinions, in the last several months. They are very nice people, and the panels/focus groups, pay very well. They always send payment via a prepaid Visa/Mastercard in the mail, and it usually takes up to a couple of weeks after the panel ends to receive. They always pay and I highly recommend!!!!
