Answer questions to Find a New Survey

April 21, 2019 by Kelly from Canada

I wish I had a dime for every survey link from Web Perspectives that told me "Answer a few questions to find a new survey". I'd be rich. My guess is that one in 50 invitations leads to a survey. The other 49 give me the find a new survey message.

Pros:
Good rewards
Lots of survey opportunities

Cons:
Very high point levels required for cash out (takes forever)
Lots of getting disqualified after 10-15 minutes of answers with no compensation.
Lots of links that don't result in a survey but a message to find a new survey.

Inconsistent

February 12, 2019 by Sarah from Canada

Compared to some other survey sites, you can earn rewards quite quickly through Web Perspectives - that is, if you actually qualify for the surveys. More and more often, I find I am invited to do surveys, then spend as long as 15-20 minutes answering very specific questions and thinking I am doing the full survey (even once participating in a "virtual shopping trip") only to then be bumped out of the survey with a message that I didn't qualify for the survey. I have contacted Web Perspectives about this and to be fair, I was on one occasion compensated for my time, but overall it's frustrating to spend time doing surveys and then receive no points. Also, I do wonder if the information provided in the surveys I apparently "didn't qualify for" is still being collected, as this happens so often now, I wonder if it's a tactic the site has more recently employed. Also, unlike other sites, there is also no compensatory reward for doing a survey you ultimately don't qualify for.

Can not contact*

January 15, 2019 by Marion from Canada

I have been trying to contact Web Perspectives for over 2 weeks regarding redemption problems. The contact page on their site is not working. I've tried their Twitter account and an email address that I had used previously. I can't get a response. My redemptions and contact attempts seem to have gone into some void.
The last time I had a problem and used the contact form they answered within 24 hours and everything was resolved.

*Edit: I managed to contact them through Twitter and my problem was resolved. It took a while but they but we managed to work everything out. I'm very happy that I took the time to reach out, and am very happy with the results.

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.
