We've been robbed

September 24, 2013 by mar from Canada

Count me in as another who spent valuable time well into surveys only to be told that I don't qualify. Like the others, customer service ignores my complaints.

Then, robbed of justifiably expected deposit to PayPal, it was removed without notice. AirMiles reward had a lesser
$ value. Nothing else offered is useful to me. I only go to Cineplex on half-price Tuesdays, even less with other discounts/coupons.

In my opinion, they have cheated their clients, and demoted themselves to being RIP OFF artists.

They removed PayPal

August 1, 2013 by Darryl from Canada

I would have rated them 5 stars, but a few months ago they removed PayPal or cheque as a payment option. Furthermore the interaction I had with customer service was less than acceptable. Thankfully there are other survey companies that value their members and reward them appropriately.

Suspending Accounts

April 12, 2023 by Dave from Canada

I have been with this site for YEARS and now all of a sudden they suspended my account?

They told me they needed ID which they refused to take and then in the next e-mail, they decided that I apparently have some "violations" and suspended my account!

And then my cousin made an account and wasn't able to take surveys and THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO HER. A BRAND NEW ACCOUNT GOT SUSPENDED, FOR WHAT? WHEN SHE WASN'T ABLE TO TAKE ONE SURVEY.

This is very disappointing, I have been with them for years and now they do this crap to me. This survey site is a joke.

What is your problem?

Does not pay

November 19, 2019 by darius from Canada

After over a decade of helping this company for very little reward, they sent me the wrong code to redeem at amazon.
After many many emails trying to get them to correct the problem, they now simply abandoned me.
I only came across Survey Police today as I was trying to find a way to warn others of Web Prospectives practices when I noticed so many bad reviews(over 60%!) on them. No wonder!
Too bad I didn't see that a decade ago.
They stand on the shoulders of the survey takers. While they charge their clients a ton of money to conduct surveys for them, they pay us very little and now nothing!

suspended for no reason

July 23, 2019 by Vicki from Canada

I have been a member of Web Perspectives for many years and earned a few dollars here and there. Nothing major, maybe $50/year or so. I did a lengthy multi-day diary survey earlier this year that awarded the equivalent of $15. Since then, however, my account has been suspended. I will give them credit for responding to my inquiry, but they just gave a standard line about irregular activity and won't give me any specifics as to what I have done wrong. I don't care about the missing money, I am offended at the implication that I cheated and would like an explanation.
