I've been a member of Web Perspectives for several years and my experience has been quite good. The surveys are interesting and I've never had a problem redeeming rewards. It takes a while to accumulate enough points for a reward but hey, it's free. The one time I had a problem with my account, it was fixed quickly. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I seem to qualify for less and less surveys but get more and more emails. Otherwise, I'd recommend this site.
I have been with them for less than a month and I have already cashed out 3 times, and I'm already halfway to my 4th cashout. The surveys pay the highest I've ever seen, and I really like the badges system. Maybe it's just a psychological game, but there is this really rewarding feeling you get when you climb the ladder to the next level. You feel that you are getting somewhere. There is something more to look forward to than your next payout. Anyway, this one is definitely worth signing up for.
I like this site. Never had problems with points, sometimes they are delayed, but always get them in full. Never had any problems with rewards, always deliver to me very quickly. You can get from 100 to 300 points per survey and it's not bad. You can reach the minimum cash out level very quickly.
I joined this panel and made it to one $10 amazon gift card redemption. During one of my surveys I agreed to do an online focus group panel with a incentive of $35. As soon as I finished that focus session, they locked my account. I inquired about it and they said it was accidentally blocked and they fixed it. Still could not log in. I emailed them again and they had said I failed their quality control checks and they would give me one more chance if I answered surveys truthfully....so i got called a liar. They let me back in for about an hour and surprise my $35 is NOT there and they locked me out again for no reason. It seems if they have to pay you points, they will make excuses why you cant have them. Waste of time!
For a month now I have been screened out of most surveys after answering a dozen content questions - that is in addition to the demographic questions (age, location, income, etc). It does not seem fair to get nothing for nearly 10 minutes of filling out a survey. All the small surveys are also unavailable because they already have enough respondents by the time I get the invitation eMail. This month (May 2015) I only completed one survey for 200 points. Usually I would complete at least one a week. At least they still have gift certificates available instead of chances to win a prize.
