Never was paid for a study that I did almost a month ago. Hannah, who runs their customer service decided to argue with me for 20 minutes about how much I am wrong and how much she is right oh, so I went to the post office and asked them how long something would take to get mail from Connecticut (which is where their office is,) and they told me that it should have arrived almost 10 days ago..... totally never mind the fact that the day of my survey for them they called me SIX TIMES verifying that I was going to be there. This company is garbage

I only used this site a few times, never got enough surveys to cash out, and now this message appears. I'm assuming it's not a paying company.

I am happy to be a member of Panelpolls. The surveys are just the right length, and a lot of fun. I have cashed out several times with no problems. I only wish that there were more surveys to do.

You won't make a ton of money on this site, but it's great if you have children. You won't encounter user errors or bad surveys, and you will receive points if you disqualify for a survey. It takes a LONG time to accumulate points, but it's a good survey site.

They offer really good surveys for kids, you don't have to go through the "sorry you don't qualify" after spending 20 minutes of your time. They have a lot of high paying projects. You won't get rich but extra spending money is nice.
