Not the Best

July 2, 2012 by vincent from United States

Don't see a lot of surveys from them and the $50 cash out is ridicules.
Think it took well over a year the 1st time and it's been another year now and I'm up to $37.
Surveys usually fast and simple to do,incentives not high at all.
But when you do hit the $50 mark if ever they will send you a check.
Nowhere near the best but in my many years of doing surveys I find them far from the worst!

Payout Threshold Too High

March 27, 2012 by Louanne from United States

Surveys are longer than what is claimed in the invitation. When I first joined 2 yrs ago the payout threshold was $20, now it's $50. I'll be dead before I hit the $50 payout, so I've decided to cancel my relationship with this survey group.

Slow Start

January 31, 2012 by Samuel from United States

Joined a couple of months ago. Only received 2 suveys and a sweeps entry. But seems legit. Havent had a problem other than I might be able to get my 50 to cash out in hmmm lets see. Two years....

Slow Rewards

November 29, 2011 by Mark from United States

I have been a member since June09. In that time I have managed to cash out 4 times. It takes a terribly long time to earn enough rewards to be worthwhile but it is CASH. Just keep plugging away. Their rewards are not stellar nor the surveys that frequent but 50 cash fits so good in my pocket I cant shy away. Understand its slow and drawn out but they do Pay. Surveys are always fun and easy to complete
