I've been doing surveys with YouGov for 2 years. After accumulating enough points to cash in a $100 Debit Card I cashed out in December, 2016. It is now March, 2017 and after numerous emails to customer service and a complaint to the BBB they still refuse to respond. Stay clear of YouGov.
Yougov is quite unique in that centres more on political views than any other survey site I've ever encountered.
Members have to obtain 5000 points in order to cash out £50 but at around 25-50 points per survey (which are at times few and far between), it can take a long time to reach that stage.
One gripe I have is that sometimes they purposefully deceive members for while they sometimes promise point rewards for some of their surveys, you are instead entered into a poll instead; blatant deception that needs to stop.
I just tried to join because I'm into politics and like to give my opinions on issues.
I answered 3 questions about my gender, age, and state, and was directed to VIP Voice. Not interested! I belonged to that site a while back and never got anywhere with them.
UPDATE: I tried to join again. The site states I'm registered so why haven't I heard a "peep" out of them? I sent their support team a message about it. We shall see IF they reply.
2/24/2017 - They never replied to my message and I have still never received any surveys.
Yougov is a very good survey company.
I've never had problems getting my payout.

I have been taking these surveys for years and in the last year or so I've noticed they send surveys say you'll get 1000 points upon completion but only get 500. They also wait until you finish a survey for a certain amount of points and then ask if you'd like to take another survey for more points. If you click yes and do the survey often you're only given original points promised on 1st survey instead of points promised on both surveys. Take screen shots of what they promise before you take the survey. You'll need to take more time to send in a complaint with the screen shot. Sometimes they give you the points, other times they blow you off. It takes a long time to get enough points for anything significant so be aware you may not get what they promise.
