"Improved Greatly"
April 27, 2017 by Bill from United States

Isay seems to have finally got it together, I dont have fails I relate below, anymore. They are slow to award bonus points for the amount of surveys one completes, however. Most recent payout request was in my PayPal acct in 7 days, yeahhhhh! They have bigger prizes for their post survey game, but they award them at longer intervals. Thats OK I like the idea that I can win $300 Visa Gift Card! I can use Chrome with no problems now, and survey fails are few.
This site is schzoid. It was bad for while, got better, now it seems to be backsliding again. I've been taking surveys with this vendor since Oct 2011, almost 4 yrs now. They seem like they have a lot of tech issues, for a while my security software wouldn't even let me enter the site because it seemed too dangerous. That was resolved, but now, they are down fairly often. They are very suspect in how they conduct their surveys and am doubtful anyone wins their "Poll Predictor" contests. Anyone out there actually win anything from Ipsos? About the only good thing I can say is that if they award points for completing a survey, they do do it immediately and when you accumulate points you can cash them out right away.

***UPDATE!*** Yes, they still are messed up, recently, I cant even access their surveys using Chrome or Firefox browsers, only via IE. I found out I got a boatload of bonus pts when I finally figured that out and was able to get back on their site; so, I asked to cash out on 8/14/15, today is 8/24. lets see how long it takes now....They dont send you any heads up they are having issues with browser interface. Be nice if they did, They didnt even say anything about new bonus system until AFTER it went into effect, they really are on top of things, arent they? Oh yeah, this past weekend (Aug 22/23) couldnt even get on their homepage for a while, I could do surveys I got email invites and got thru Poll Predictor, but to return to landing page to see my pt total, no go...Very strange site this, I mean I am usually successful at completing surveys here and have made some serious mad money from them, but with all their constant technical glitches, they are very frustrating, and I REALLY am considering just cashing out when I hit $15 buck threshold to get paypal payout. Oh yeah they raised the points one needs to cash out paypal by 30, and they didnt say anything, not anything obvious, anyway. I found out when I tried to cash out last time, and it said. PayPal 1530 pts! Thanks again, Ipsos/Isay for being so transparent and letting us know whats going on!!!

*****ANOTHER UPDATE!!!****** I got paid Aug 26th, not bad, however, on Sept 5th I had a negative 1295 point balance WUUUUUT???? of course, I immediately did a ticket and sent it in. I did receive a reply today (9/8/15) Seems good old Ipsos, made an "accounting error" and awarded me "too many" bonus points in August. mmmm nice of them to let me know, I only found out after struggling (again, yes their tech problems have not been resolved! BTW: they actually admitted to me they have problems with surveys loading on Firefox or Chrome browsers, and advised me to only use IE "until we can get these other browser issues straightened out". however long THAT will take!} with trying to get on their landing page to check my point balance. I sent a ticket and they replied. This site is really lacking in transparency and they reply, like; "yeah, so we screwed up, too bad, so sad."

"Another Disappointment."
April 21, 2017 by Mark from United Kingdom

Another survey site where it starts off well. Points or money builds up and reaches a certain limit then every survey thereafter are either non existent or unavailable. Not having much luck lately. Just end up participating in the user polls. I wouldn't waste your time.

"awful site"
April 21, 2017 by Victoria from United States

Dont join this site its a waste. I joined and at first it was ok and then they just randomly deleted my account and said contradicting answers. The only thing contradicting was my age change Im mixed racial descent and my household size decreased. They will delete your account without warning and you wont be able to claim your points and it takes a while to earn points.

I was a member of this panel for several years always with good results. They paid on time, generally posted points in a timely manner, and I did not have any issues. Over the past year, they got significantly worse with not posting points correctly and customer service being slow to respond. Finally, I stopped getting survey emails altogether and when I went to the website to login, I received a message that my account had been deactivated.

When I contacted support, I was informed that "We analyzed the information collected in our surveys and noticed some contradictions in the answers you provided in our surveys. These discrepancies affected the accuracy of our survey results. As a consequence, we were obligated to deactivate your membership and it cannot be reactivated.

This decision was made for market research purposes only."

All my points are gone, I was never even informed of this decision if I had not contacted them, and apparently this is how they do business.

I have not had a similar issue with any other survey panel. I cannot recommend this panel to anyone due to the arbitrary way they just close accounts without warning or reason.

"Stopped Working"
April 16, 2017 by Kathy from United States

Sends me a survey once every two-three weeks, if I'm lucky. Not worth it. Looking for a new survey website. Already have two better ones I'm a member of.
