I've only been doing this for a short period of time, but so far the rewards have been very good. My biggest complaint is several times I have almost completed a survey, only to have it thank me and stop. I'm talking well after going through the questions to see if you meet the criteria. They need to stop these companies from doing this. They're getting their surveys done without having to compensate this way. I have wasted way too much time on surveys such as these.
I'm a regular Web Perspectives panelist (3 years) and consider it one of the better survey sites. Use it to collect Amazon.ca gift certificates that come in handy at Christmas and and for other necessary items, some of which I can get cheaper on Amazon than in retail stores. Very useful. I figure about $300 - 400 per year, without obsessing. Get fewer surveys than I did at first. What I discovered today when making a redemption was that they have now limited the number of redemptions to 2 per day. So even though I have enough reward points for $100 in gift cards for amazon.ca, I could not redeem the full amount today, as planned. Instead I will have to stage the redemptions over the next four days. Fortunately, I was just "banking" my Amazon.ca gift cards for future use, but if I had needed to use $100 worth today for a special item I would have been out of luck and very upset that I received Zero notification of the change from Web Perspectives. Also had to provide my phone number and have WP call or message me to confirm my order. They called immediately and provided a 6 digit code three times via a machine voice. I had to enter the code on my computer screen to confirm. All this for $20 worth of amazon.ca gift card credit. Anyway, forewarned is forearmed. Don't stock up on Web Perspectives reward points and expect to spend them all in one place suddenly.
it could be a better site.i tried to redeem my points but because i do not have a cell phone or a landline,apparently i am unable to.my email is not enough:(
I find it interesting that since looking at this site, I have found reviews that mirror my experience.
I had been using Web Perspectives for a while. I went on vacation in the US, and, as is my habit, I checked my e-mail for any surveys to do at night when it was quiet. I belong to many sites, so I like to keep on top of invites.
I tried to do one on Web Perspectives and found myself permanently deleted on my return. Now, I understand that a site does not want non-Canadians doing surveys. I have run into this with a few other sites, but when I have contacted other sites, they always re-activated my account, no problem. With Web Perspectives, they just said that they had "identified several discrepancies in your account details and/or survey activity that are in breach of our terms and conditions." The only thing that I could think of that I might have done is tried to do a survey while in the US. I contacted them to find out what it was, and they would not even elaborate what they claim that I did.
The highly suspicious thing was that I had accumulated a lot of points that I have now lost.
And the points they offered were not that great. Not as bad as some sites, but not great.
IF you want a recommendation, I would propose Survey Lion or Pinecone. Both offer good rewards.
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.
