ok site

June 16, 2020 by Carolyn from Canada

this site is ok but holy does it take a very long time to get rewards.

Ripped off

May 7, 2020 by Randy from Canada

I had accumulated $100 doing surveys for this company and they paid the money (apparently) to my Amazon.ca card but now my Amazon card has been disabled for "suspected fraudulent activity" and the $100 was returned to Web Perspectives and I am out the $100 I spent MANY, MANY hours earning. I have contacted them but have only received a "standard form reply" with a bunch of gibberish but nothing about getting paid. Terrible company for me so far. I would give 0 stars if I could.

Update: Web Perspectives have now fixed the problem I was having and I am a satisfied customer again.

Used To Be My Favourite

May 4, 2020 by Martha from Canada

I've been with this survey site for many years. Up until 2020, the surveys were many and the payouts were quick. I don't know what has changed but in the past few months the surveys are fewer and payments are lower. You do get paid without a problem but it won't add up as quickly as other places.

Does not pay

November 19, 2019 by darius from Canada

After over a decade of helping this company for very little reward, they sent me the wrong code to redeem at amazon.
After many many emails trying to get them to correct the problem, they now simply abandoned me.
I only came across Survey Police today as I was trying to find a way to warn others of Web Prospectives practices when I noticed so many bad reviews(over 60%!) on them. No wonder!
Too bad I didn't see that a decade ago.
They stand on the shoulders of the survey takers. While they charge their clients a ton of money to conduct surveys for them, they pay us very little and now nothing!

I was enjoying it

August 20, 2019 by Lisa from Canada

Web Perspectives was one of my favourite survey companies and I was really enjoying the experience of taking surveys with them. Recently I tried to redeem some points I had banked for a reward and it kept showing an error and wouldn’t allow me too. I enquired about the error and was told that my account had been flagged and indefinitely suspended due to inconsistent answers! So I am now unable to claim rewards that I feel I deserve. I tried to appeal it and haven’t heard back from them again. I was diligent in my survey taking and I am very disappointed. They owe me around $30-$35 and won’t respond or explain why I was ‘flagged’ in the first place.
