I have tried multiple products with these guys and you consistently receive payment for every survey you do.
Is very good. No downsides for this survey site.. i hope it continues.
This is the best survey company I belong to. The surveys take a very reasonable amount of time and there is no chance of disqualifying. They always pay on time and the compensation is good compared to other survey companies. The only bad thing is that they are very unforgiving if you fall behind in your surveys. I was out of town so I was late with a product review and they won't send me any more home product tests. I belonged to their panel in the past and they closed my account for falling behind in surveys. If you belong to this survey panel, you have to be really good about taking every survey they send you!
If they send you a survey that doesn't require logging in, don't take it. I've had problems with those types of surveys twice now where I didn't get paid. They are not very helpful if you write to them about compensation. They are still good for their normal surveys though. I always get paid for those right away.
They credit my account quickly and have interesting surveys. I wish they would send me more.
I can't complain about the payout per survey from this site ($3 per) but they come at a rate of about one or two per week. That would be the only downside for this site.
