Just to clarify....

December 10, 2010 by Chrystal from Canada

First off, I see a lot of people are REALLY confused regarding the point levels. 10,000 Web Perspectives points is actually $100 PayPal people, not $10. 1,000 = $10. I just cashed out $100 on PayPal myself, 12/06/10, I'll be sure to come back and tell you all how long it took to arrive in my account.

And secondly, if a survey company sends you invites to surveys that don't have a reward attached (ie, sweepstakes entry) DON'T TAKE THAT SURVEY. It's really that simple. The less people actually take these surveys the less likely the companies will offer them, think about it. If we all held our ground and ONLY completed surveys we got rewarded for, they wouldn't bother with the sweepstakes.

I've been doing surveys (and getting paid for them) for years, 5+ in fact. NOT doing a sweepstakes entry survey has NEVER caused a company to stop sending me paying survey invites.

WEB PERSPECTIVES: Where your credits are always "pending"

November 28, 2010 by Lea from Canada

At first, I did their surveys religiously. I redeemed my credits for movie/Chapters gift certificates, which I received a couple times. It was ok at first. Then I began answering 30-40 min. surveys offering 400-500 credits in return. The problem was that those credits sat in my "pending" list for months at a time. Contacted customer service & got a response saying if the survey was done by a 3rd party, it took longer for credits to be added. I began to complete only surveys by W.P., not a "partner". That made

I have been a member since October 2010 and I have been getting atleast 5 surveys a week now. I'm joined with several survey companies. By far Web Perspective is on top of my list. Getting high reward points and recieving several surveys without the week. Besides waiting for pending reward points. I highly recommend Web Perspective.

My favorite

I admit they take their time validating but they are easily my favorite company. I receive regular payments from them and there are often new surveys for me to take. I have never had any problems

Show me the money!

I have done several surveys with this site since signing up. They claim your points will be posted within a few days, however after the first couple of surveys they stopped posting my points. It has been weeks now and goodness knows how many points have dropped off the list. I also had the experience of completing a survey and then being told I didn't qualify. That is foul game, to say the least! I sent them a contact message a few days ago to which they have not responded at all. It's unbelievable that they are representing reputable companies with such misleading and poor service.
