Start taking surveys

The main dashboard of the website will show you a list of surveys for you to fill out. You can choose by survey length or your desired topic. Underneath each survey, you’ll see an estimated length and how many points you’ll earn for completing each survey. Some surveys may offer a unique experience such as being a video survey or a diary style survey.

Convert your points into rewards

Once you’ve earned enough points, you’ll be able to convert these into a wide range of rewards. Choose from options including cash paid by PayPal, gift cards, e-vouchers and more.

Mixed feelings.

September 17, 2010 by Robert from United States

A tenative "yes" to this site. Only a couple of survey opportunities received each month though. Some are higher value surveys of $7.00 and up, but usually get disqualified from completing them. The $1 to $3 surveys are mostly the norm for full completion. Overall its an "OK" site, if you have some time to kill. Barb: Receipt of payments are a bit slow. Laurel: But improving at the time of this posting.

What happened?

September 17, 2010 by Molly from United States

Like others have posted, this was the first survey panel I ever joined. Years ago I used to do pretty well with them and cashed out fairly often. Now I probably receive 1 or 2 surveys a month...if that! Surveys are lengthy and while you're promised $1-3 if you complete the survey, it seems like I always get $1 for my time which is hardly worth it. I still do their surveys IF I don't have other "better paying" ones to do. I would recommend them just because they do pay.

So far so good.

September 17, 2010 by Kris from United States

So far I have had good results with this panel. I hope that it continues, as I am unemployed and need the cash.

stopped paying

September 17, 2010 by chris from United States

I've been a member for 3 years now and have only made $57 in that time. I'm still waiting on a check I requested on July 12th.

Used to be Good

September 17, 2010 by Tammy from United States

I used to get surveys all the time and when I requested a check they were pretty consistent with payments but now they are messing up. I requested a $10 payment on May 22 and the check is still pending. I have sent two emails to them and receive the form letter back that someone will contact but so far no one has. Also they don't send emails that I qualify very often any more.
