shame - was a nice site

July 15, 2019 by Julie from United States

within the past few months on several occasions after completing a survey whether for myself or my ten year old daughter who enjoys doing the surveys on this site, panel polls has failed to give the incentive. it has been corrected after numerous attempts with emails but at this time I don't see the situation changing for the better. even if I or my daughter complete a survey and follow the instructions to the letter, an incentive is not forthcoming. She is more upset because having been told her entire life that you do a job you get the reward, as in chores - allowance; extra help around the house - a treat and so on. My daughter does not fully understand (she is ten years old) when adults or those in charge of a project do not follow through on their commitments. I do enjoy the surveys since they pertain mainly to family and my children but at this time, your policies conflict with how I raise my children. We are no longer going to partake in surveys with this site due to the irregularities of incentive procedures. just know how disappointing the site has become. I have told my various parent groups that this is not the appropriate site for families with small children as it sends mix messages on commitment and follow through. Again a shame since there are so few sites that are entertaining for adults and children. I have a balance but it is not worth the disappointment on my daughter's face when she does not receive the incentive for a survey. This review is not taken lightly and again if it had not happened so many times I would have attribute it to a site error.

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.

Reliable and Trustworthy

May 21, 2017 by Stacey from United States

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.

Points add up fast to cash out!

August 25, 2013 by Candy from United States

I like this site; when there is a survey it is worth usually like 2000 or more points, and you have to reach 10000 points to cash out; I request a check and they pay asap. Very very good survey site!
