*I have been a member for 3 years, finally got the 100,000 points and requested payment on Nov. 3, 2012. Still have not received my payment. It took forever to get there and now they won't answer e-mails, today I searched the site for phone numbers and got a guy somewhere who said just e-mail him about my payment. The server came back and said he didn't give me a legitimate e-mail address. I am so frustrated with YOUGOV. After working that long, you should be able to get your reward at least within 6 weeks. Now I am beginning to wonder about this company.
It has taken me 3 long years to reach 5000 points, which I finally achieved 22 November. I claimed my hard earned £50 straight away. When nothing had appeared by 27.12.12., I emailed and received a reply next day, saying that payments normally take place within a four week timescale, but because of Christmas, are taking an extra 10-14 days. Seems like they want to hang on to their dosh for as long as possible. Hope thats helps anyone who is waiting as well.
I have been a member for several years, if you expect a quick incentive then use a different survey site as it does take a long time to achieve the 5000 points required for a BACS payment. This has never been an issue for me as I have found the surveys to be interesting and relevant to me mostly.
However, after finally earning the points to redeem in mid-november I have received no payment as at 04.12.13, I have sent two emails through the website and have had no response whatsoever.
I wouldn't even mind if they emailed back saying that they apologise but there are a few delays as I would at least know the status.
It appears that a lot of the comments on here are quite recent so I assume it is a new problem?
Was with you gov for a number of weeks and heard absolutly diddly squit from them no surveys no nothing total waste of time appearded to more aimed at airing their political views than giving surveys
I FINALLY after 2 years hit the 100,000 mark, cashed out for the $100 and have yet to receive a dime. It said it could take up to 4 weeks to receive but it has been closer to 7wks, going on 8. I have written them twice now with not one reply.
This has always been one of my favorite survey sites. They're simple, to the point, no errors or "sry, quota filled" after answering 20 minutes worth of questions, and I really enjoyed the political surveys.
After cashing out, not receiving my money, and no customer service support getting back to me.. I think I may have to re-think one.
