As the title of my review says, goodbye webperspectives....hello new and improved website which unfortunately took this company from very good to a waste of time. I'm not interested in 9 of 10 surveys for a "sweepstakes entry". I don't even play the lottery, nor do I think there are any actual prizes.I also highly doubt that the customer service person Jennifer is nothing more than a codename that everyone in customer service uses to apparently give the company a more personal feel as if you are having the attention of one important person. Many company's seem to do this though so.....Anyhow, used to be you could do a few surveys and boom, chapters giftcard. Now it takes more than a few and forever to have the points applied, as in 3 and 4 months. I would suggest picking up pennies on the street as a faster method of making money!

You RARELY receive points for taking their surveys. You'll spend 30 minutes doing a survey only to be told 'sorry you do not qualify' when you've basically answered all of the questions. It seems as if they're getting your answers and telling you that you don't qualify so they don't have to give you points. If you do qualify, your points are 'pending.' I had several hundred points in my 'pending' folder, only to find out that I didn't receive the points. They magically disappeared. I didn't bother e-mailing them to inquire about it as I have already wasted enough of my time doing their surveys with nothing to show for it.
I DO NOT recommend signing up with this survey company unless you want to spend your time out of the goodness of your heart. It's a waste of your time if you're expecting points.

Hello, I thought I would post a review because I see the're hasn't been one in a while.
They recently changed their program with points that still pay via Paypal. It is mostly sweeps surveys. I am disappoited. On the good side they have improved by giving panelists an account log in to check their survey history and are now able to change their e-mail etc... without any problems.
I rarely received one with a points incentive and when I do it is hard to qualify, but they are very generous with the points ! Their surveys are not long though. That is one of the main reasons I stay. I am waiting this one out hoping my luck will improve. In my opinion a points program should not have any sweepstakes surveys. I would love to know what other panelists think of the new points program.
