Other than surveys (which, yes-they are just plain silly and it takes a good long while to ear them), this site encourages you to submit your opinions in a group/posted setting. If you choose to do this be ready for rude and obnoxious insults thrown your way. I think if you get on there you can take a pretty good guess at where they will be coming from. I made a general observation and was called a name and had my state insulted. A lot of nasty people on there.
I now have 43000 point accrued over a three year period. I ordered their webcam about 6 months ago. after complaining for 3 months I received an email stating there had been a postal mix up and that I would be receiving my new webcam within 10 days, that was about two months ago. I just sent a message today asking to cancel the webcam and I would trade my points for money and buy my own webcam. We will see what happens. This is quite frustrating. I answer all their surveys honestly with diligence and this is how I am rewarded? I am about to call it quits.
I am very happy with this survey site
Used to take 2 years to get the £50 cheque but since I turned 80 it seems that my opinion is not wanted very much. Due to low number of surveys now received reckon I may not survive to receiHae another cheque! Have been a panel member for many years.
it takes ages to reach the 5,000 points amount but at least its legit i'm only on 1,000 :L
