WASTE OF TIME

October 21, 2021 by ANDRIA from United States

I signed up with them over a year ago and I never qualified for a survey. They can they send an email for a survey you fill out and a min later and all of a sudden the survey is full. How? I also noticed that they will offer cash of a survey and then turn around and send the same survey offering points. Which the response is always, "you already filled the survey." Rip off and a waste of time.

DO NOT PAY

August 31, 2021 by JESSICA from United States

IT HAS BEEN MONTHS OF EMAILS TRYING TO GET MY MONEY OVER $400 OF COURSE I HAVE EMAIL STATING ALL WORK WAS COMPLETED BUT YET THEY WONT PAY!!! DONT WASTE YOUR TIME ,ALL YOU WILL BE DOING IS MAKING THE COMPANY MONEY, YOU WILL NEVER SEE A DIME!

Not worth it

May 4, 2021 by Nathaniel from United States

I signed up months ago and responded to email after email. In order to be considered for paid marketing research. You have to answer survey questions. After numerous attempts, being denied, and tons of time wasted. It is very apparent that it is just a ploy to get free data. I would suggest to stay away from this site. While other sites don't really pay that much. At least you are getting something for your time.

Good luck ever qualifying

December 17, 2020 by Morgan from United States

They send so many emails with requests to take the surveys and only qualified one time in two years. It’s ridiculous when you go 20 minutes into the survey, are told you qualify and they get all your information and then you either never get called or never emailed. Its a real class act when they switch and bait you into going all the way through and then disqualify you at the end with a “sorry your group has been filled”. It’s obvious the information collected is being used by survey squad or should I say focus forward in making money off of our time and information collected and then disqualified. It’s disheartening and wrong.

They confirm then deny you and lie

March 19, 2019 by Daniel from United States

I've been confirmed several times, even for ongoing surveys.

I don't know if it's my name or number that someone used to have or something but they always call back and deny me later even though they confirm me and say I will be receiving an email confirmation.

The the last one was a joke as the survey board was already on going and I fill the spot of somebody who failed to show up and was confirmed, then the next day they call me and said the client change the terms of the survey.

I'm not an idiot and obviously you're not going to change the entire structure of a survey with several dozen people participating in the middle of it, so I'm not sure what's wrong with these guys but it's a waste of time.
