I've been a member for a few years and have been receiving plenty of surveys. A lot are sweepstakes, but many are $2, $3, or $4 worth.
They offer you points - 200 is $2 (20 minutes to complete), 300 is $3 (30 minutes) and so on. 10,000 to cash out, which I've accumulated pretty quickly.
I've cashed out a number of times and received all of my money through PayPal.
I would recommend this survey company and I personally have not experienced any problems.

This is a great survey panel. Been on it for a year and from the start it was pure sweepstakes but as gradually, you do the surveys, you slowly will receive points and in turn, you get rewarded for cash incentives. Just be honest with your answers and now I've been getting at least 25 surveys per month. It's really fun and they do pay through paypal

I signed up with these people a little over 1year ago. I get atleast 2 surveys every day, though I've never doen any. I looked into it like 2 weeks ago for rewards. I think it's 10,000 points for a $10 cheque? surveys are in the 100-800 points range or swwepstakes. I get plenty of those from Greenfield so no thanks.

I have been with them for about 3 years now and I am about to quit. Their links do not work properly - it happens somehow with those higher paid surveys. They are incapable of giving back the link and only "apologize for inconvenience", but that is where it ends. I am endlessly plagued with sweepstakes type of surveys which a waste of time. And the endless waiting to claim the reward - in 100 point rank usually makes it not worthwhile. I would say go with Pine Cone Research. The payment is always the same - 5$ - and they deliver it immediately.

I have signed up for just about every survey/opinion panel I can and Web Perspectives is the only one I actually recommend.
I have never been able to get enough surveys to "cash out" on any panel except Web Perspectives, where I just hit $10 after a couple of months. Every other panel either screens me out, or their surveys are few and far between. I started off getting mostly Sweepstakes Only surveys from them, but now that I've "proven myself" I guess, I get more for real rewards.
They seem to send out a lot less "Sweepstakes Only" reward surveys than most other companies, and their rewards are actually reasonable, 1000 points for a $10 gift card or what have you. I have been a member of other panels for longer and have yet to see any reward.
