Gone are the days when I'd get invited to come in to take a survey and receive compensation. They have a (perhaps not so) new tactic now. I'm tired of getting emails inviting me to a survey, and clicking through a screening process that then turns out to be the survey itself. So, they now have my survey feedback for free. Of course, I never get an invite to come in and participate in the survey as described in the email because it doesn't exist. Nor does the compensation. I'm out, and I encourage others to bail out also.
InspiredOpinions is one of my top favorite survey sites for the reason being that they offer decent amount of focus group opportunities and their form of payment is hassle free.
In October, I was invited to do a focus group study for two weeks and earned my incentive sooner than expected. They do call you to ask additional questions to screen you for the focus group or study and when you qualify, you just complete the focus group as asked, and patiently wait to be rewarded.
Meanwhile, this survey site might send you a survey to complete for points, and they do add up for rewards such as gift cards.
I really like InspiredOpinions, have been with them for quite some time!
Have been a member for about a year and been paid out FOUR times - used to go to their site to look for surveys but just lately they are sending them as available. - takes about a week to receive payment.
Only thing I do NOT like is the fact that they make it that you have to earn above the redemption threshold to cash out - in other words YOU have to pay.
Otherwise, as I have said, I do like this panel - the surveys are sometimes very short, others a little longer but all well set out and clear.
I had been a member for over 3 years. Most of the surveys was not qualified. Answered some, but at the end several of them just closed on me. Thec support gave generic answers, no help. Started complains, they closed my account, did not let me cash my points. waste of time, frustrated.

Thank you in advance,
They are affiliated with Schlesinger Associates and have very high paying focus groups. They have always been good to me and pay me immediately after the focus group via VISA gift card ($100-$200). I never take their surveys, so cannot comment on them. All the survey invites I get seem very long, so I always pass on those.
