Lack of surveys

October 28, 2021 by Fraser from United Kingdom

There's lots of surveys offered each day but most of them will not fit the profile criteria despite the website taking a lot of profile information. As a result it's slow to reach the payment threshold but when I did it was a fast payment to paypal.

Update: I closed my account. Lots of surveys that do not work, deduct completed survey payments with no explanation and takes a long time to reach the £8 withdrawal (and they take a fee).

one of the worst

May 25, 2021 by Randy from Canada

This is without doubt one of the worst sites there is and one of the hardest to make ANY money on. I answered ALMOST EVERY survey invite I got but it took me over 2 months to reach a whopping $12.50 payout.

They invite you with an nice attractive survey with a decent payout but then you are quickly shuffled to a much lower paid and lengthier survey. Even after that I rarely qualify for a survey and even if I somehow qualify and complete it I am still not compensated. Then when I file a complaint I am usually bounced to another contact who asks for info I was not provided with and I am JUST OUT OF LUCK !! This has happened far too many times. They can keep the .38 balance I have { should be over $4.00} i am done with this site. Don't WASTE your time !!!!

They deduct from your account for no reason

March 4, 2021 by Jennifer from United States

I have a very hard time qualifying for their surveys. Then I look on my account & there is $1.25 deducted from my account! The last survey I qualified for was over a month ago, why take money from my account when it takes months to get to $1.25! Closed my account not wasting my time anymore!

Terrible Support Service

December 23, 2020 by Robin from United States

I have been using this site for several years now with moderate success. The surveys are a bit difficult to qualify for but I had quite a few payouts over the years. I didn't love the site but it was okay. Over the past month, I have revised my opinion. I requested a Paypal redemption as I have done many times in the past. I hadn't received it in weeks after the request. All my profile says is "failed" with no explanation as to why. I have contacted their support services ([email protected]) five times with no response. I have given up at this point. I will NOT be using this site any longer as I don't trust their payouts anymore. I recommend caution to anyone who is thinking of using this site. You may put in many hours of surveying for nothing as I did.

Make "too much money" from Panel Champ get smeared & closed down.

November 6, 2020 by Kerry from United States

I received an email from Panel Champ support after having problems with receiving the same multiple surveys and surveys with dead links or errors. I contacted CINT support FIRST. Then I receive an email banning me from Panel Champ. I will not receive my latest payout.

I have completed surveys with Panel Champ over 3 years and with Prize Rebel close to a year. I have NOT VIOLATED any terms. I was always honest with my surveys. I completed more surveys since I am not traveling for work due to the pandemic.

Below is the copy of the email I received from Panel Champ's support CINT-tech Carol.

"Hello,

We regret to inform you that our systems have identified activity that is in violation of Cint's Participant Terms & Conditions for Panel Membership. As a result, we have removed your panelist account from our system and you will no longer be able to log in, take part in surveys or other research programs, or redeem or receive any rewards.

This decision was made following a thorough review of your account(s) by our quality team and is therefore not reversible.

Please review Cint's terms & conditions here: https://www.cint.com/panelist-terms/

Kind Regards,
Carol
Cint Support Team"

This is an updated email from tech Carol-CINT/Panel Champ on 11/5.
The reasons I was banned were SUDDENLY CHANGED. I completed each survey accurately and honestly. Again, I had been doing surveys since early 2017.

Carol's email below
"Hi,

Thank you for your reply.

Your account has been permanently banned for poor survey quality. Ultimately it means the client(s) have received data they cannot use due to the survey-taking behavior of the respondent.

The surveys respondents take have real-life implications and the data is often used by companies to make important decisions. As your account(s) has failed our quality checks, we will no longer allow you to participate in surveys on our network.


Kind Regards,
Carol
Cint Support Team"

Please don't waste your time on a dishonest company. I don't want another honest human being to waste their precious time during this pandemic completing surveys honestly only to be falsely accused of violating their terms and conditions.

If you make "TOO MUCH MONEY" from PANEL CHAMP they will eventually falsely accuse you and close your account. I am one of many who have experienced the same Panel Champ/CINT smear campaign.
