"OK Site."
January 06, 2016 by Matt from United Kingdom

A lot of polls to answer but there aren't enough surveys to make the time it takes to cashout acceptable.


"Decent site with great staff who always respond :)"
August 04, 2015 by Nicola from United Kingdom

If you are looking for a site to earn a lot of money then this site is not for you but if you just enjoy giving your opinion with the added bonus of earning a small reward then i would say you should sign up to Viewsbank.I have been a member for 2 years now and although I have not earned much I do enjoy participating in the polls and short surveys.Anytime i have had an enquiry the admin staff have always responded promptly unlike a lot of the other gpt sites.The threshold for cash outs has recently been raised to £12 but that is still quite reasonable compared with other sites. Like i said you won't earn much on this site but it is worth joining...after all getting paid anything to answer a few questions is worth while and eventually the pennies add up to pounds:)


"Lost my loyalty"
May 26, 2015 by Lois from United Kingdom

I'm not one for giving 'half a star' reviews unless the site really is a complete scam. In saying that, Viewsbank clearly isn't a scam, it has just gone downhill very rapidly.

I was pennies away from the threshold rate of £6, until suddenly and randomly, they changed it to £12. Fair enough, all sites have their own payout rates, but considering Viewsbank only give you surveys worth pennies - literally, I have been taking 2 question surveys for 4p - it will take you years to get to £12. The £6 I have only just reached has taken me just under 12 months to earn!

I contacted the site, annoyed as I had just reached the £6 mark, and they replied that the change had been advertised on their site. For one thing, Viewsbank should have emailed every single one of their members who have been mislead. For another, when they say 'advertised', they mean wrote about in their blog which lets be real - nobody reads. Clearly lots of people had emailed with the same problem as the blog post got flooded with annoyed panel members saying that they were done with the site. They have actually taken down the blog post now with no indication of having listened to its members.

In the blog post they said quite proudly that they were still a site with one of the lowest redemption rates. This is fair enough (although I can think of LOADS with lower than £12) but I can reach £100 with another site on a higher payout rate, a lot faster than I can with Viewsbank on a lower one.

All in all, I am disgusted with the change and can't believe that a site that already is much lower quality than others, can justify cheating their members out of their own hard EARNED cash. When we joined the site, we were told one thing, and now we are being given another.

I do not recommend this site to anybody who does not wish to be taken advantage of.


"Do NOT join"
May 25, 2015 by casey from United Kingdom

Do not join this site, they do not care about their members and change the redemption amount without notifying us first. You get stupid little, waste of time surveys which will take ages to get to the redemption amount.


"very poor site"
May 22, 2015 by CHRISTINE from United Kingdom

I joined Viewsbank over 12 months ago. Their threshold used to be £6. This has recently been raised to £12. When it was raised my balance was £4. I completed 2 surveys a week ago and my balance was not updated. The surveys are really poorly paid 11 pence is average. Lots of members are complaining about not being credited with surveys they have done. Also polls, which are suggested by the same old members ( and are now the main activity on their website) are unpaid. I contacted them and complained. The response I received was terse and rude. No apology no offer to update my balance. Just an offer to unsubscribe me if I wasn't happy. I had said in my email that the site had become unethical, which from lots of members points of view is true. Rob, who replied to my email took exception to my comments and sited technical problems as the reason for members balances not being updated. If this is the reason it has been going on for months. I have now unsubscribed, losing my balance of just over £4. Avoid this website. They pay very poorly and now the threshold is £12 it would take for ever to cash out.
