I just successfully completed a 20 minute survey only to find out after I submit it that they had enough respondents. Before I even qualified for this survey, I had to complete a 5 minute screener. They had to know they were over quota before I even took the screener. I'm so sick and tired of survey companies getting free surveys out of us. This is just plain wrong.

The company has been very good to me.
I have qualified for several surveys which add up, and pay a few times a year. The parent company has been a source of some phone surveys from 45 - 90 minutes which pay generally Visa or AmEx cards occasionally checks, in about 45 - 60 days.
I am not happy with this one. They are an off shoot of Schlesinger Associates which I love because I do in person panels with them. However, their sister program called Inspired Opinions does anything but inspire. You have to build up points to get a reward at a cash out level of 1000 points. In 3 years I have earned enough once for a $10 amazon gift card. Most of the surveys they send to me either have nothing to do with me or I get disqualified. For example, they may want to speak with men who have migraines which is me. Then they say I got disqualified because I do not fit the profile of what they are looking for.

Thank you in advance,
I've been a member of Inspired Opinions for 4 years. During that time I rarely qualified for any of the surveys, but I didn't close my account because I did have a few points and I wanted to get up enough to cash out. I finally got enough points to cash out in February of 2015, so I cashed out for an Amazon gift card. Shortly after that I received a call from a rep at Schlesinger that I qualified for a webcam interview with a reward of $100. I completed the interview March 20, 2015. I have not yet received my reward. I have attempted to contact Schlesinger once a week since early May to see if they were going to reward me, but emails go unanswered and when I call they just hang up.
I have been "stuck" on 955 points for months. All of a sudden, the survey opportunities with InspiredOpinions stopped. I wonder. Seems like they just used me so they could make money, but right before I was able to cash out, i.e. right when I was just 5 points shy of cashing out, the surveys stopped. That is really low of them to do that to me. To everyone, I would not join InspiredOpinions. Watch out.
