Ripoff Survey Site - DO NOT JOIN IT

July 7, 2016 by James from United States

Surveys that lead you to dead ends or errors and no credits upon an almost completion after that happens and there is nothing they will do if you complain about it - Check.
Survey adjustments where they take money you earned away from you after completing a survey with no explanation as of why - Check
Paypal fees that no other survey group has - Check
Maximum payout levels of $15 that always leaves it's clients short a few cents making it impossible to withdraw the whole amount of cash you earned - Check
The panels lies about it's estimated time of completion by at least double the amount - Huge Check

The panel isn't worth the time or energy for such small payments. It just keeps on ripping off it's clients who make it's cash for them. Don't sign up for this panel or you'll regret it.

Not getting paid

May 24, 2016 by Cindy from United States

I have been with Quest Mindshare for a while. I used to like them. It is hard to qualify for surveys lately. They keep taking money out of my account. I took a survey but apparently they decided to take my money away because I now have -$3 in my account. They have done this a few times before and it always for $3. I will not do another survey for them since it seems I am doing them for free.

Worst customer service

April 11, 2016 by tyla from United States

I finally had enough money for a 10$ amazon gift card. It has been a month and I still have not received it. I contacted them by email 4 times and still haven't received a reply from them. Starting to think I never will!

No respect for panelists, ignores instead!

June 2, 2015 by Masa from United States

I was a very active panelist for QM for almost a year. By active, I mean multiple invites for surveys per week, in which I qualified for many of them. I went ahead to take a $3.10 (if memory serves me correctly) survey for an I-Say/Ipsos 30 minutes on skin care and makeup brands. I spent over 40 minutes on this survey, having to fill out blank boxes and after 40 minutes, during the last few final demographic questions, the page stalled, I then received an error. I emailed QM at once, giving them details as to what happened. This was on March 1st. I sent at least 13 emails to them, trying to get them to look into what happened and credit me accordingly. They gave me the run around and sent me the usual copy and paste email for a month and ignored every email I sent after March 30th. They never gave me an answer of any kind, an apology for the inconvenience or anything. Nor did they say they looked into the error. They have no respect for the panelists! Don't waste any time or energy with this company! They are beyond rude and could care less! My last email to them was May 1st and after being ignored again, I closed my account.

Hello CINT,

Please assist the panelist directly regarding their issue and CC us on
any correspondences. Thank you.

Best regards,

Quest Mindshare Support

I sent that email to a different email support in hopes to receive support from someone. It was forwarded but never answered as far as I saw as I never received a reply! No respect!

On top of that, the surveys pay less and less. Many recently were for a nickle for 5 minutes that would take 15.
