reward not being honored.

June 16, 2019 by Sandy from United States

I tried to redeem a reward and decided to check the status after the date it was supposed to be honored had passed and was overdue. I went to the Reward History section and to my surprise under Claim Status it said "Failed." What the heck!!! I don't even know what this is supposed to mean. Not only did they take my points (4100), they also didn't send the egift card I ordered. I am hoping they correct this, but am not too hopeful as I recently learned that Survey Spot is closing. If they honor my reward, I will definitely update this review. What a terrible way to treat a loyal survey taker!!!

UPDATE: I have now received my reward and am hopeful that this survey site continues to correct oversights such as the one I experienced. Thank you Survey Spot!

RESOLVED: No payout after nearly a month

June 14, 2019 by Cantor from United States

UPDATE 06/13/19: I finally received my Amazon payment from Surveyspot, so I am updating my rating back to 5 stars. My thanks to their member support team.

I submitted a valid payout request for an amazon card on 04/30/19. However, the status showed as "Failed" and I did not get paid. I have contacted support many times to try to get this reset so I could get paid, but nothing has been done about it. Still shows "Failed" as of this date, 05/29. It appears the site is going to close down still owing me money.

Wow . . .

May 31, 2019 by Terri from United States

I get a lot of invites, but don't qualify often enough and that can be frustrating. I've never put regular attention to my balance, but always just let it build up to eventually be surprised and just looked to see they are shutting down . . . Wow, good thing I saw this, because I have not gotten notice of this via email and might not have been able to cash out to get my 15 bucks! Sorry to see them go, but there are a lot of survey sites out there and I guess it's hard to manage both ends - keeping companies happy along with getting the right target survey takers. This company seemed to mostly work hard at offering surveys with some worthy points and I'm gonna miss them, but oh well.

very bad survey

April 28, 2019 by Rafael Emilio from United States

has the practice of canceling accounts without any reason. One of the worst survey company.

Downhill Slide

February 3, 2019 by Phyllis from United States

I have been a member of Survey Spot for many years. It was easily my favorite site.

Within the last year, I maybe received one survey....why? I sent them an email, and they responded to just wait something would come.

It is not that I do not qualify, it is that they don't send me any anymore.

Anyone have this issue?

Thanks. Phyllis
