In a recent post i said i had never had a problem with them right now i have to say i have had my first problem with them. The problem isn't with payment it's with there speed on getting back to people or not getting back with them at all when they have problems. I have emailed them twice over crediting me with the points i earned that never showed up in my account, The survey said at first it was add like 1500 points to my account then it went on and i didn't qualify for that one so it put me on a survey about Android pay that one they said would add 1000 points to my account, i did the survey and at the end of that 15 or 20 minute survey it said i earned 500 points but there site didn't even add that to my account. Keep in mind it said 1000 points is what i should have got.
Edit: 4/12/2017 I've been having login problems for 4 days now first i emailed them and they responded to me for the first few times now they won't. I don't know if there working on this or not i don't know if this is there way of saying we don''t want you anymore or what. I emailed them last night at this point all i can do is wait but i have to decided something as of today without knowing what is going on i don't have a choice. Stay away tell they work these problems out.
I really don't like giving these kinds of reviews but i don't have a choice.
Edit to post: A few days ago i got a email from yougov they said they would look into the problem i think there slow but there talking to me now and they are a good site to work for.
Edit: As of yesterday i emailed them again twice and still haven't received a reply at this point I'm think about other things to do.
Edit: Problem still isn't fixed all i need to know is if the configuration is alright on there end then i can email google and let them check there end i know it not over here because i use the recaptcha on other sites.
I get several surveys a week, rarely screened out, I like that I can get a physical Visa prepaid card as a reward. You Brits are lucky you only need accumulate 50 quid to cash out. In the US it's $100. Takes me almost a year to accumulate that much. But I like the simple surveys albeit they are tedious and plodding for the most part. They are fairly fast to cash out, less than 3 weeks, for my $100 Visa giftcard. I'd give them 5 star rating but they dont offer cash payouts only gift cards and a couple merchandise items.
the survey company is getting bad. The posted phone 1-650-319-0702 never had been answered, messages had not been returned. Another phone, 1-650-462-8000, prompts for the extension, but not possible to access Kelly Connor message box. E-mails to support desk were answered before by Greg, in kind of rude way, non willing to solve the problems. Site advertises 2000 or 1000 point, but at the end gives 500, happens 3 times. Even, after screen shot were provided, no correction.Greg replied, as he did me a favor by giving me 500 points once. Asked for his supervisor e-mail or phone, but he refused to provide. In March company advertised 4000 bonus points for the referrals, but had delay for first referral and no points for the second one yet. Promise was in first week of April. Good company is going down because still excessive points for reimbursement and terrible customer service.
I have been doing surveys for years. You Gov is by far the best. I never get kicked out of a survey and if a question is asked and you don't have an answer, you can click thru.
I never had a problem with them since I joined in I think 2011.
I like it
