I have been a member of SurveyBods for several years and they used to be good. Now they are AWFUL and their customer service is AWFUL and fobs you off and doesn't listen to you! Surveys usually pay a pittance and have got longer and longer and often screen you out after you have wasted 15-20 minutes of your time or more and have carefully completed 75% or more of the survey and they have harvested all your data! Expired and full surveys appear in your "available surveys" list for weeks and months and when you try to access them they are either inaccessible or full! When you complain to their customer service, they just fob you off and do NOTHING!
In my opinion this panel/website is dishonest and a waste of people's time! They have got worse and worse and they don't seem to care! I am DISGUSTED with how I've been treated by them as a panellist and once I've reached my pay-out threshold I will be closing my account with them! I am a panellist on numerous market research companies and NONE of them are bad like this one! Take my advice and DON'T BOTHER WASTING YOUR TIME AND EFFORT!

Another increasingly 'lame duck'

October 5, 2021 by Doug from United Kingdom

Surveys are becoming longer and longer, HOWEVER rewards are becoming Less & Less. All they get is disgruntled panellist.
Started the "You're a bad boy", when checked why, is for an unspecified survey that they can't identify now where you allegedly 'sped through' or 'straight lined', never mind that you may have really felt that the same response applied to each of the questions (never complain if the relies are always excellent however!). Quality and frequency has been falling off, now heavily into the cheapy ' 0 pts, one entry in monthly draw' exercise where you get... Mr P of Norfolk won ..., yes, really
Since Sept 2018 increasing number of ""You are not eligible for this survey"" messages. This has not got any better in 2019, in fact possible got worse
Also bug on their database, some surveys you complete still appear as available, and, more annoying, get emails telling you it's still available, which isn't true.

Screenouts all the time

September 9, 2021 by Alan from United Kingdom

I have been member for several years and until recently I would say that it was a good survey panel.
However in last 3 months I spend 5 minutes plus on each survey to then be screened out. The firms are clearly getting information without paying for it. I would not continue but am only 1.60 from redemption, but I guess that it what they bank on.
I will pass on my concerns about this panel to the market research institute but they do not seem to take action.
Survey market is not worth time anymore.


May 3, 2021 by Ben from United Kingdom

I wish to make a complaint about the dishonest conduct of Surveybods.

This company has taken at least £1.50 of my money and made false allegations about how I take their surveys. In addition this company frequently screens out to avoid payment and closes surveys far too early (for instance within SEVEN minutes of the survey opening).

Watch out

November 28, 2020 by Robert from United Kingdom

SurveyBods review,

Watch out your account may well be cancelled without any prior warning. You will just receive an email stating “This is because SurveyBods operates a 3-strike policy, meaning that if you haven’t completed our surveys in a satisfactory manner on more than three occasions, you can no longer continue participating in them.” No warnings on strikes are given. The app is useless it gives you no information about strikes.
