Survey Taking Experience

Take Interesting Surveys

Biased, racial discrimination

June 21, 2023 by Zunni from United States

I had first heard good things about this site, so i joined. My very first 3 surveys i was taking allowed me to complete up to 96% then when I was asked about my race and if i was of Latino origin i answered yes then the very next 2 questions asked if i was fluent in English and Spanish and when i answered yes, all of a sudden the survey decided it was not suitable for me! And mind you this happened 3 times in s row!

Website Down & No Help

December 17, 2018 by Paul from United States

UPDATE DECEMBER 2018: Well, here we go again. Cannot login despite using all the correct information and doing all the many many many many repetitive captchas. Support (haha) nonexistent. Sent messages -- nothing. This site is increasingly useless and worthless,

Cannot log in. Credentials (login ID & password) are current and unchanged. Still can't log in. Tried to reset password, but the emailed link to do that won't work either. You click on the link in the email and it just sits there doing nothing. Tried to send a help message to support. No response. No way to know when or if they will respond. We are going in circles with this website.

Takes forever

You can't cash out until $50. Surveys are few and far between.

March 17, 2017 by Sarah from United States

i did a lot of surveys for this place and i sent the a message about a payment that they owned my and the survey said it would take 6 to 8 weeks to get paid so i waited and after 8 weeks i email them about my payment and they never answered and i kept sending them emails after a couple of weeks they finally answered one of my emails told it would take 6 to 8 weeks to receive money so in another email i told them once again that it had been 8 weeks and would like to get paid that i dont mind doing some surveys for free but when im told that i will be paid i would like my money. this survey was for $20.00 so thats a good amount of money. will they put me off for about a month with me emailing them here and there and then they say they can't find the survey that i did and i send the paper on the survey and after a week they say they found the survey but it going to be another 6 to 8 weeks at this time it had already been 12 weeks, so i wait 8 more weeks, email them again they never sent me email. a week later i sent them another email and then i was told in the email that they need more time will its been 21 weeks and i message them again on the other day and i wanted a phone number to talk to someone and the delete my account that day
