REDEEMING REWARDS

The panel was started back in 2004 and has a member base of over 250,000 people. In 2018, the Web Perspectives website updated their look and feel with fresh colors and graphics, as they became a Dynata-run panel.

Can't redeem rewards

August 20, 2018 by DENNIS from United States

Looked at other comments, it seems I am the same situation that they deactivated my account. I played with Web Perspective for many years and for few years I didn't played with them. Now they changed to another corp. I have about 4500 points accumulated there, and wanted to redeem the rewards. I am not able to redeem and an error massage port out, contacted them and no feedback, also there's no surveys available. I doubt they have a difficulties to run the business and unable to let users redeem the rewards.

Confused new customer

February 21, 2018 by Mags from Canada

I joined this survey group February 13/18 I was having trouble getting into the site today, this is what I received in my email, today......

Thank you for your email.
Unfortunately, we have received reports regarding the accuracy and attentiveness of your account activity and, upon review of your account, we have been forced to suspend your account.
As a member of our program you may only have one account, provide accurate profile information and survey responses. You must also be thoughtful and attentive in responding to our surveys. When we receive repeated concerns about any of these program rules we are obligated to take steps to investigate and unfortunately suspend accounts.
We do not take account suspension lightly and do so only when we receive repeated reports of program inconsistencies. At this time your account has been indefinitely suspended and you will no longer be able to participate in surveys or claim rewards from our website.
Thank you for your understanding.


Thank you for your inquiry,

Mike

And this was my reply.....Is this a joke? I only have 1 account with you? I have only filled out 10 surveys. No more, as I never have an opportunity to go further as I am not what they are looking for. Super disappointing. If, you have had such concerns regarding my account no one has ever let me know? I only had this account for 8 days. I Have no idea what I did that was so wrong. That’s ok, there are other sites for sure! Yours, if given a survey will not be on my positive side. Thank you, Maggie

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!!

October 27, 2015 by Scott from Canada

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!

Account Diapered
