Great service!

June 16, 2014 by Donald from Canada

Angus Reid is great. In response to everyone who has complained about not receiving a lot of surveys, I have a couple of points. 1) update your profile regularly- they send you surveys based on the relevancy of the survey to what you've put in your profile. 2) do all the little free surveys that they send you- these also influence the paid surveys that they'll send you. At least, I've found that doing these little things increased how many surveys I received. Anyway, I cash out 50$ every year/year and a half. I've also dealt with their customer service/technical support department and they are super quick and effective.

Not enough polls

March 15, 2014 by Brian from Canada

In the same amount of time than ipsos I say(since 2010),i got 200$ less!ridiculous! sometimes i have only ONE survey every 2 weeks and it's only 0.50$. The only reason why i give em 3/5 is because i never get any problems with their surveys like ipsos i say (hundreds of surveys not finished or full of bugs)

Great panel

October 8, 2013 by Sylvie from Canada

I have been with Angus Reid for several years and I have cashed out $200 so far. Works great for me, one of the best.

pretty good panel

August 20, 2012 by currie from Canada

they don't send out survey too often, may be once or twice a month , so it usually take me 12-18 months to cash out. but their survey usually pretty short , so it's not too bad.

don't hold your breath

May 14, 2012 by Kim from Canada

I've been with them for a while and still haven't been able to cash out. With the number of surveys sent it takes over a year to cash out. You might receive a survey every 1.5 to 2 months @ 1-2.50 a survey, it will take over a year to cash out. There are better ones out there!
