Do not recommend

January 10, 2021 by Jacqueline from United States

It's a lot of work to earn points. You can use your points to enter monthly drawings for many different things. And you are also automatically entered into monthly drawings for various amounts. I won a $25 gift card once over the last year or more.
Be prepared to put in a lot of effort. You have to scan every purchase and certain stores require you to enter the price for every item you buy.
For example I shop at WinCo for groceries and can have 100 items or more that require me to enter the price for each item. It is a real pain to have to do this as I put my groceries away. Wal-Mart on the other hand only requires me to scan each item before I put it away. But fruit, veggies, meats and bakery items requires you enter the prices. Other places you just scan the bar code on the receipt.
If you are lucky and win things regularly it's a cool deal. If you are unlucky like me it's a lot of work for no reward.

Pretty Good

November 9, 2020 by Gary from United Kingdom

The Nielsen Mobile panel is at the top of the list for remuneration as it doesnt actually take much effort - you install a plugin in your browser or phone and thats it - As long as you dont mind the possible security and privacy aspects then it is pretty much rock solid and regularly gets you a £10 Amazon Voucher!

In the past of having this service, I received amounts regularly. Since the newest update and having it for several months, I haven't received any compensation. I had my mobile device connected as well as my computer.

Waste of time

July 21, 2020 by Joanette from United States

I was invited to join this site over two years ago and i never received anything for my time. Such a waste of time, and even though I contacted them for help, the links that I was sent to use never worked.

Don't Trust The Dangled Carrot

December 30, 2019 by Helen from United Kingdom

I was offered £20 for installing their monitoring app on my computer if I kept it active for one month. After 3 months I asked them why they had not paid me and was told they only enter you into sweepstakes and they are not responsible for other survey platforms offering incentives. I have a screen shot of the offer of the £20 from themselves. I will not be allowing them any more access to my computer for free!
