The length of each online survey varies, but most are between 5-7 minutes long. Surveys are rarely longer than 20 minutes, as this is considered a maximum.
As with any survey site, YouGov's survey topics can vary, however most of the time, they are politically focused. YouGov's surveys and polling results are frequently published in the media.
Compensation Per Survey
Most surveys will award between 500-1000 points; the longer the survey, generally, the more points that are awarded.
YouGov offers a variety of redemption options for members. Cash payments awarded via PayPal are an option, as are gift cards to retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, iTunes, Walmart, and more. YouGov branded merchandise is also available.
Gift card rewards take approximately 2-3 weeks to receive after redemption. Gift cards are physically mailed.

I have been with them a few months now and to start with I got a survey nearly everyday but now I am past the halfway point I get one a week if I am lucky. Have read they do this to a lot of people in the UK not sure about the states. The surveys are quick and easy so its not the end of the world. I do not see an option for Amazon vouchers for UK users as said in previous reviews so I guess its for people who joined up earlier. I will probably get my £50 in a few years at this rate. Just as well other sites do not take as long to cash out. A bit unfair really that you make an effort and have to wait so long. A year is fine but longer than that takes the mick tbh.
Their surveys usually pay 50 cents each, so it took me around 200 surveys, but I finally managed to earn enough points for a $100 prepaid Visa card. I was told in early June that my reward would arrive in 4-6 weeks, but over 4 1/2 months later I have not received it. Worse still, they ignore all attempts to contact them. I've sent multiple emails to multiple addresses and even filed a claim with the better business bureau, but still zero response from them over the past six weeks. I'm out $100 and I've wasted hours on their surveys for nothing. Untrustworthy, deceitful, unscrupulous company with no integrity, that doesn't even have the decency to respond to members.
UPDATE: The better business bureau gave yougov until October 24th to respond to the complaint I filed against them. On October 25th, 59 days after I first contacted them, yougov finally responded to my emails. There was no apology for the delay and no explanation for why they had not replied to my emails sooner. They claimed my reward had been returned, but if that was the case, why didn't they ask me to confirm my mailing address in case there had been a mistake??
In early November, 5 months after I ordered it, the reward that was supposed to arrive in just 4-6 weeks finally showed up. I urge everyone who has been ripped off by yougov to file a complaint with the better business bureau since this is apparently the only way to get them to pay up what they owe, or respond to their emails.
YouGov is an enjoyable panel to be a part of. Rewards are either a £10 amazon voucher per every 1250 points or a £50 cheque per every 5000 points. I am close to hitting my first cheque target but it has taken me months to get this far. Dedication to the panel and patience are key.
Never qualify and they send you stuff constantly yet you never qualify.
I love Yougov! I receive on average 5-6 per weeks worth 500-1000 points (sometimes the shorter surveys are 250). It requires a lot of points to receive anything of any value but with short surveys it all seem worth it. I look forward to cashing out soon.
