    I agree rosiesmom. Some of these survey companies are always trying to accuse members of fraud, but in some cases its the survey companies who are committing fraud. They let you complete a survey all the way and then tell you that you are not qualified.

    I don't usually pay attention to the star rating. I read the actual reviews and see if the company sounds like one that is worth my time or not. I also only pay attention to recent reviews. We have the ability to edit our reviews so it's partially on us to make sure we are keeping the ratings current. Just my two cents

    I don't know. Sometimes if I would rather DQ then take the survey, I'll select , " no I won't pay attention to the questions" and they'll still let me continue.

    So.. I just got a note saying "Happy Bday. We've made a donation to the World Wildlife Fund for $500 in honor of all August bdays." There's no paper, no way to prove that. You really love your panelists? Give THEM something. Even if it's a dollar. That's like surveys that say you can win this or that. Yeah right. No proof, and why the work for no pay. Scam. Ever since the merger with MySurvey, they've cut what they pay ppl in half for the majority of surveys. And I am dq'd for most surveys, making it not even worth my time to login. I don't need the quarter for dq'ing 5 times, and then this bday present. They don't pay instant anymore. They're bigger, they just get greedier. Got several other bday cards from other companies that say they value me so much. A blanket letter to all your august bdays means nothing. You value your participants - give em something. Because many of us often get stuck in surveys that are too long for too little money, and I write to the customer service, and they say, "Sorry, sometimes it happens. But we really value you." I despise empty sentiment. This is what is called lying, when you say something and you don't mean it. They do it in politics all the time. Don't send me a bday card next year, none of you, please. K, that not enough of a slap in the face? Ok, here's another. Got an email invite today from ForthRight, (formerly Innopoll.) It says click to screen for a survey that may be worth $35. So I do. It xfers me to SurveySavvy to screen for Project Blue -- which, if any of you are part of SurveySavvy, y'all know Project Blue is worth $55. Oooooh lookit this y'all, I'm GUARANTEED a loyalty star. Wait, wait, wait -- did they mean a Sucker Badge? 3 loyalty stars gets you $2. So you take $20, and I get 1/3 of $2. Gee, now that sounds fair and equal. What complete disrespect. In what universe do they think that blanket emailing to screen their database of participants, which takes 1 second, means that they deserve a $20 cut (more than a third of the reward,) of the pay to each person that qualifies? I mean seriously, wtf???? ***UPDATE: Survey Savvy is now offering $35 for Project Blue. Originally it was $55. I don't know at what time they changed it, so I can't say either way if Innopoll is guilty or innocent here, so keep that in mind, just tellin it like I've seen it. Sure would be nice if these companies could respond once in a while......*** I apologize to my hard-working fellow at-home workers here, because I know I sound harsh, negative, angry and PO'ed, but that is exactly where I'm am, at this point. These companies take my time, my effort and, and on average, pay me maybe about $6 hr when you calculate it out. Hey, that's just not enough for them. They just get greedier and greedier, while I do all the work. Is anyone else sick of this and want to start a survey company that pays people fairly for their time and work? These companies get useful, actionable information, opinions and analytics that market research companies pay them very well to acquire and everyone of them - every one steps on the people that they say OVER AND OVER that they value so highly, ) that actually do the work. So, for these companies : I am tired of the lies and disrespect. My time and my effort to honestly tell you what I think, to push ten million of those ridiculous radio buttons, to drag a button between 1 to 100 for 50 separate-page questions in a row, give you my demographics over and over, even though you have the info on your database, and all the other tedious, mind-numbing repetitive activities, to spend 20 min getting dq'd for a survey that I get a $1 for 20 min, and to tell you my personal information that makes your clients save money and profits increase, to give you the essays and ideas that your clients will put into action and make a lot of money off of without a penny for myself from it, I will gladly do for your research. BUT - (And pardon my French,) but, don't shi+ in my face, I'm sorry I meant, don't shi+ in my email, and tell me how much you value and are grateful to me for my work, time and effort. I am not an imbecile. SHOW ME! SHOW EVERY PARTICIPANT that gives you that same investment of work. Show them by not paying them like a Chinese sweat shop worker. Because you know what your words about value and grateful and appreciate mean then? Yeeeaaaah ya do-- or do I need to use more French?

    Will you commit to giving your best answers? I cannot commit at this time I can't say either way. By the way we care so much we will give you 20 cents for 15 minutes of your time. Where is the No freakin way response!!!!!!!!!!

    Someone on /r/beermoney recommended this app to me a few months back, called Hatch - it's actually by C-Space, who are also responsible for the best-paying, awesomest private survey community of the handful I'm a part of, so it's not too surprising that this app also pays well for your time. It is surprising that it's so completely flown under the radar, so I was wondering if anyone else here uses it, and to people who don't, to recommend it. You don't get surveys from it very often, and it never proactively informs you of them, you have to check it periodically - but when you do snag one, it's super worth it. Like Pinecone, they periodically invite you to complete short (couple minute) surveys for no pay, but then use your responses, if you qualify for what they're looking for, to invite you to surveys that are still pretty short, often interesting, and pay pretty nicely - the least I've gotten is $3, the most I've gotten is $10, and their surveys aren't that long (though, oddly, for an app-only site, they do often include some writing - I don't mind as much, because I completely refuse to give up my Photon Q, the last-ever Android phone with a proper keyboard - otherwise I'd probably be more irritated. But I'd be irritated all over the place, which is why I refuse to give it up. :p) The really nice thing about it, too, is they clearly read all our responses, and if they like your response, I learned, they will pay extra - I've gotten $5 bonuses on top of the $5 original pay, twice now, in the few months since I started using it. They only pay in Amazon, and it takes a few weeks to get paid, because they process everything manually (though according to the site, they're working on getting payment more automated, but who knows when that's going to happen, if ever). Still, I'd highly recommend it, so I figure I would... actually highly recommend it.

    In my mind, if a survey company doesn't pay or dq's you after you have completed the survey, that is theft. Plain and simple. I do not believe in them saying that you aren't guaranteed a payment just because you participate. I am still waiting on a survey site to get back to me on 2 different surveys that I completed and was then dq'd after I was done. Ridiculous!!
