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.

Just awful

December 12, 2018 by Grant from United Kingdom

You get offered loads of surveys but the main problem is when you get to £15 and want Amazon Vouchers it's ALWAYS out of stock, you complain you get automatic same crappy reply promising it be sorted, never is, 4 years later still crap, waste of time.

Joined this a few months ago. Reached 1500 points two weeks ago. Asked for Amazon vouchers, still waiting, no reply to two emails. This stinks.

Waste of Time

August 14, 2014 by Josh from United Kingdom

SurveyBods used to be good. When I signed up, I got regular surveys and I earned points for completing them.

But now it's not so good. The good bit - I DO get regular surveys and they DO offer a generous quantity of points. But the bad news is, I'm not eligible for any of them. The worst part of it is that I'm only 150 points away from being able to withdraw points to my bank account. Another point to make is that the surveys like to ask a lot of questions BEFORE they tell me I'm not eligible. So I spend 5 minutes answering questions just to get told I can't finish it, because I don't meet criteria.

Overall, I think that if I am not eligible for a survey, I should be told BEFORE I waste time getting halfway through it. Also I think that the threshold for points is too high; it makes it easier for someone to earn points which they cannot redeem into their bank account.
