I've been taking ugov surveys for probably the last 7 years or more. I didn't always take the surveys on a regular basis, just when I had the time to do so. So, it took me quite a while to get up to 100,000 points but I finally did it. I chose a $100 amazon gift card and I did receive it about a month later. So, I'd have to say I'm pretty happy with the results. They gave me 500 points for each survey completed.
In a recent post i said i had never had a problem with them right now i have to say i have had my first problem with them. The problem isn't with payment it's with there speed on getting back to people when they have problems. I have emailed them twice over crediting me with the points i earned that never showed up in my account, The survey said at first it was add like 1500 points to my account then it went on and i didn't qualify for that one so it put me on a survey about Android pay that one they said would add 1000 points to my account, i did the survey and at the end of that 15 or 20 minute survey it said i earned 500 points but there site didn't even add that to my account. Keep in mind it said 1000 points is what i should have got.
This is still a good site to work for ever site has some kind of problem it's the speed they try and take care of the problem in this case.
On October 31, 2016 I signed up to their survey site. Since then I have participated in various parts of the site, but have not been given any surveys to complete, I have e-mailed twice, called their help number and left a message, with all pertinent information, four times and have received no response. What's up?
I like this survey group, even though it takes awhile to reach a payout threshold. The surveys are on salient and engaging topics, are well written and you can review the results of the survey. I visit everyday. The screen-out rate is very low, so even with infrequent surveys you actually make progress.
That being said, don't expect over $100 a year, and that's when letting the points accumulate to earn progressively better return.
I get several surveys a week, rarely screened out, I like that I can get a physical Visa prepaid card as a reward. You Brits are lucky you only need accumulate 50 quid to cash out. In the US it's $100. Takes me almost a year to accumulate that much. But I like the simple surveys albeit they are tedious and plodding for the most part.
