I've been a member for quite a few years. They pay 50 cents per survey or 500 points. Since the best redemption point-wise was 100,000 points for a $100 Amazon gift card, I waited til then and redeemed on June 1st, 2017. I was supposed to have received the gift card in 4-6 weeks. It is now 8 weeks and after numerous phone calls and emails to them, I have received no reply! I had to complete 200 surveys to earn the $100. I don't plan on them keeping my money, so I lodged a complaint against them with the Online Better Business Bureau.
Update: So I don't know if my $100 Amazon code was just late in the mail or if YouGov acted after I phoned them, emailed them, and contacted the BBB. Since they never replied to any of my communications, I can't say much about their Customer Service. I'm just glad I received my Amazon card.
This is one of my favorite survey sites. You get a new survey to do almost everyday, and you don't have to qualify. The points system is 500, 750, or sometimes 1,000. The points add up quickly if your consistent. I've never had any problems cashing out. It may take (4-6 weeks) to receive your gift card in the mail. Aside from that I like the site.
I don't get very many surveys from YouGov. When I do get surveys they are always interesting to fill out.
I stayed with this survey panel long enough to generate the necessary minimum rewards for one payment, and then stopped participating. It takes forever to go through the many surveys necessary to generate any reward. The reason being is their embarrassingly-low rewards structure. A person can far better spend their time and effort elsewhere, rather than give your time and effort for the benefit of those who own this survey panel.
As i said in my last review i had a problem first ever for this site this problem couldn't have been there fault it had nothing to do with payment. This site is a excellent site to work for if your willing to put some time into it. I use mine to help pay for birthday and Christmas gifts for my 6 year old daughter. Works out great and they do pay. As for the problem i had with them it was over there it had to do with the way they verify you're not a robot nothing more i used a different pc an browser and i could login. The problem is fixed now and everything is running good.
