Voice + Choice + Rewards

With Ipsos i-Say, you can have the power to influence the future of major brands in advertising, entertainment and many other industries. Share your opinions and choose your rewards!

Reward Types and Amounts

Earn i-Say points by completing surveys. The amount of points you will earn varies from survey to survey but is dependent on a number of factors, including survey length. Once you complete a survey, the points will be credited to your account unless the survey instructions say otherwise.

Points conversion: 1 i-Say point = $0.01.

Redeem Your Points

Once you have at least 500 i-Say points (worth $5), you can begin to redeem your rewards! Rewards include:

  • Paypal payments
  • Amazon gift certificates
  • Visa pre-paid cards
  • Merchandise
  • Gift cards to dozens of retailers including Walmart, Target, iTunes, Starbucks and more

e-gift cards are delivered instantly to the email address listed on your i-Say account. PayPal funds will be delivered via email within 3-4 weeks of request. For all other rewards, expect delivery to take from 4-8 weeks. All Visa pre-paid cards, for example, are delivered by mail.

Merchandise is also available via a GCodes catalog. Home wares, sports equipment, tools, beauty items and much more are available and amount to hundreds of different items. If you don't have enough i-Say points for an item you want, you can top up your points by covering the missing points value with a PayPal payment.

Your points stay active so long as you are an active participant with i-Say. If you deactivate your account, you will have 45 days to use your points, otherwise they will be forfeited.

This survey site used to be really good with lots of surveys and no issues with qualifying and completing the surveys. Since they implemented their new website, they've gone downhill. The look and feel of the website is terrible, but even worse, most of the surveys you don't qualify for, and if I do qualify, I do most of the survey (10, 15 minutes) and then I get a message that I don't qualify. I don't know what they've done to their website, but it really sucks. I won't waste my time anymore with them. I'm cashing out and using my time on better survey sites.

Just responding to a few comments already posted about the Bank of Canada survey. It took them over a month, but I finally received an email with a gift card for the BOC survey. It eventually pays out...but takes forever.

I used to enjoy these surveys until they moved to another site. Now I have to login in several times in between surveys and often is disqualified. The polls and games are no longer offered as well.

The panel gets continually worse. Lately, I did a survey for the Bank of Canada, conducted by Ipsos. It involved a pre-survey, 3 day tracking survey, and a post survey.

There was supposed to be a payment of $20.00 Cdn. for completion. The survey was done in early November, and I have not yet received payment.

I have sent 6 e-mails, and got 2 responses.

The first said they were so busy that they would respond later.

The second response, came about 3 weeks later, and they said that they have sent a $20.00 prepaid VISA on 9/12.

Problem is, I haven't received it, and this reply has a number of issues attached to it.

1. Who did they send it to?
2. Where did they send it?
3. How did they send it? (mail, or e-mail)
4. Was it sent on Dec 9, or Sept 12? (I know they meant Dec. 9, but they should have said that specifically, instead of 9/12.)

Anyway, I have e-mailed them (again) stating the above, and have not received a response....now 2 weeks.

I have actually spoken to the Bank of Canada, and they are not pleased that this has happened, but they are powerless to help. They said, however, that they would try to find out for me, and that, at the very least, pass on the information to their research department. (They are in charge of selection of surveyors.

Ipsos I-Say, is a very large, and very SHODDY, survey company, with poor customer service.

NB. I don't know how they could have mailed the VISA payment, as there is nowhere on the site profile, that shows an address, nor a place to enter it.

I will never do another Ipsos survey again.

The site has improved a little bit. It has revamped the home page which I do not like. No poll plays at the end. It seems easier and quicker to cash out your five dollars.
