Ripped off

December 5, 2018 by Randy from Canada

I had accumulated $100 doing surveys for this company and they paid the money { apparently} to my Amazon.ca card but now my Amazon card has been disabled for " suspected fraudulent activity" and the $100 was returned to Web Perspectives and I am out the $100 I spent MANY, MANY hours earning. I have contacted them but have only received a "standard form reply" with a bunch of gibberish but nothing about getting paid. Terrible company for me so far. I would give 0 stars if I could.

Best site for getting rewards

September 18, 2018 by CATHERINE from Canada

I joined this site just three weeks ago. I think it may be just for Canadians. In three weeks I have got 3 ten dollar Amazon cards. I normally don't get a lot of surveys because I am a senior with no kids and no money to invest but this one is much better than Tellwut.

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.

Account Deactivated for a long time member

May 23, 2018 by Chi Ming from Canada

The explanation of the deactivation is just an excuse as I have been doing the survey the same way for the past 10 years from this site. I have only one account and I answered the survey honestly and thoughtfully

If they received the repeated concern, as a normal corporation, they should issue warning to me especially 10 years is a long time period, but they choose to keep silence. Apparently, the "repeated reports of program inconsistencies" is just an excuse of not paying. I think the company is NOT earning enough money or running out of money, and now decide to suspend pile of members to increase the profit of the company.

Not doing survey from this site is fine with me, but using such an excuse to attack my personality and shirk responsibility is totally unacceptable.

Response from the company :
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.

Fewer points for more work

April 9, 2018 by Jean from Canada

For a month now I have been screened out of most surveys after answering a dozen content questions - that is in addition to the demographic questions (age, location, income, etc). It does not seem fair to get nothing for nearly 10 minutes of filling out a survey. All the small surveys are also unavailable because they already have enough respondents by the time I get the invitation eMail. This month (May 2015) I only completed one survey for 200 points. Usually I would complete at least one a week. At least they still have gift certificates available instead of chances to win a prize.

Update April 2018
I still get screened out of about 4 out of every 5 surveys I attempt. At least now I usually get kicked out within 5 minutes of work. It would be less frustrating if WP gave you a small amount of points (like 25) to attempt a survey especially when it seems you have filled out more than half of a 300 point survey. Maybe they would work harder at sending you surveys you qualify for if it cost them a bit every time they send you a link to a survey you do not qualify for. P.S. I did complete and update my profile that contains HUNDREDS of questions.
