"not the right fit for me"
May 02, 2017 by Zipporah from United States

This website is for someone who doesn't mind being opposed upon by strangers and different projects Im not that type of people person and I love my privacy and being off to myself not a bad website if thats what you like to do and they actually pay you for your time.

"Very Good Surveys, NO Paying."
January 13, 2017 by Jonathan from United States

I feel that I have lost out a lot of money with this site. I have never been paid for my services, and it amounts to THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS with this site in completed surveys. Avoid at all costs. ($10,000 or more in lost revenue stream)

April 08, 2016 by Kelly from United States

I feel that joining this focus group would be a waste of your time. I was very satisfied with the amount of emails I received from them. It's just to bad that after almost a year of responding to the emails, I never once qualified.

"THE slowest paying site.. EVER"
February 22, 2016 by Brooks from United States

I've been able to cash maybe two times with these guys. You'll see your wiithdrawal in Paypal eventually but it can tale nearly four months.
Also, they are very hinky with qualifying like so many others, and furthermore they do not respond at all to e-mails sent to their customer service.
I wouldn't waste my time with this one if I were you.

"I'm not sure what they want?"
February 07, 2016 by Keli from United States

I have tried for over a year to qualify for just 1 survey/ in person survey. The last one I was sure I qualified for. I was told I would receive a phone call so I left my day open and no call. I don't understand why these in person surveys only benefit the unemployed or retired? I can't take off days from work to do a survey. What about Saturdays? Or evenings?
