  1. On 5/21 I sat for 80+ minutes answering questions and watching two episodes of the upcoming Apple TV+ Hillary and Chelsea Clinton docuseries 'Gutsy Women' which was worth 2000 points. After completing the survey, the last page said, "WE'RE SORRY, YOU DID NOT QUALIFY TO COMPLETE THIS SURVEY ON THIS OCCASION," and I was not rewarded the points. So, naturally I emailed them and today was told this: I ended up telling them that I don't care if I qualified. We are not rewarded points for qualifying for surveys, we are rewarded points for completing surveys. I sat for 80+ minutes and completed that survey, therefore I was entitled to the points. Whether or not my opinions or information is used after the fact isn't germane. I was curious how many people they screwed or attempted to screw out of the 2000 points.

  2. I was with them for maybe 15 years. Got on via a banner on a site that was posted before the forbid posting such info. Started when it was $5 per survey and the surveys were 2-3 every month with frequent products to test. Then it dropped to $3 per and there were still product tests. When they were taken over along with Harris and started the router system , which had issues at first , suddenly the number of surveys dropped and the ones I did get were either for drinkers , smokers , or gamers. Failed to qualify as I do none of those. Then I was suddenly dropped to "freshen the pool" at both Pinecone and Harris. No loss.

  3. Don't bother with Pinecone anymore. They were once one of the best survey sites and now they are one of the worst.

  6. The rating system is part of a Your Served Less system, the lower the number, the less likely you are to get surveys and the stay in the dog house. The numbers are generated from capricious information, wind direction, results of hurricane land fall lottery, astrological positions and what ever other crap they can throw in. It was advanced by the lovelies P2S, Points Two Shop, exchanged some rather blunt accusatio from support over the competency and voids in supports their reasoning. It was like having a discussion with the Pakled "We find things to make our survey go"

  7. I have been receiving this message after I finish the survey "You've already participated in this survey." Oh gee, thanks Knucklehead Fred, like they couldn't inform me of that before I completed the silly thing?? Seriously, I am asked all the prequalification questions first, so I'd think they would know immediately if I had already participated in that survey. Now, I only go for the surveys that are less then 10 minutes, to spend 20 or 40 minutes on a survey only to be told that is very frustrating. I've been doing this since 2008, and finding it harder to stay focused on any survey longer than 10 or 15 minutes. I make up for it by getting the Perk Points, reading the emails, but my biggest point maker is through shopping. I can't complain too much, they've never cheated me out of any rewards, I've received them instantly too.

  8. Tellwut may have been up, but the pipes between you and tellwut were broken. Al Gore can tell you all about the internet pipes:) A common diagnostic tool for troubleshooting route pipping issues to a destination node is called "traceroute". Traceroute is a program that sends a morsel of data to a destination on the internet. there is seldom a direct route to a destination and the route changes depending on what is happening on the innternet. They use routers to do this redirection. Each time the packet morsel is directed through a router, a small response is sent back to the origin, a "I WAS HERE message". This not unlike the "where is George?" project. George are dollar bills in circulation. So when a website You need to use isn't working, try activating the traceroute program on your computer, search your computer help, or use a web based version https://dnschecker.org/online-traceroute.php If neither work, the could be an asteroid or rushing nuke strike on Tellwut or some drunk took out a telephone pole in canada.

  10. I no longer take them. Not only because of not ultimately qualifying , but the time needed is more than I am willing to spend. Did one once and got credit , but the 30 minute show I had to watch was an absolute stinker (lasted only a few episodes when broadcast - nobody liked it). Not worth the points.

  11. I never touch any surveys that involve watching a TV show or such. Have read too many stories about time spent (wasted) and not compensated. This on many sites, not just One Opinion.

  12. I just did one tonight, and I don't get them nearly as often anymore. They used to pay $5 per survey and then it dropped to $3. Some people have been dropped from their survey list because they no longer fit the demographics. I still get them, but I do wish there were more.

  13. They use to be really good especially with giving you products to test But that has changed when I do get a survey fro them which is rare I very seldom qualify

  14. What Bal said. I'm on there, and it took a lot of time for me to get on there. You have to just keep trying and get rejected multiple times. They claim they have banners on certain websites, which they will not tell you what those websites are, to try and sign up. After several rejections, they finally deigned to let me on there. The surveys are few and far between. They do pay $3 each, and you can cash out with $3, but they do not have PayPal. And after a few years, based on anecdotes I've heard from others on here, they kick you out without any notice. They constantly refresh their survey takers, and my opinion is that they want young people (Gen Z) who spend a lot of money on consumer goods.

  15. I would hit the roof if that happened to me, I would be furious. Please don't give up and demand that they give you what you are due, or threaten them with legal action. I am sick and tired of these scamming no good companies getting away with murder

  17. If you are being rewarded, why wonder at all? All that matters to me is that I am rewarded points for completing surveys.

  18. I put Qmee at the wayside about a month ago. I just got tired of being disqualed at the very end of surveys and that. They started out good, but like many survey sites, turned rotten eventually.

  19. Just finished a ResearchNow survey host on Qualtrics and fielded by Tellwut that asked PII (Personally Identifiable Information). The 50 point, 5 minute survey asked full name, email, a serious statement that all questions must be answered with complete truth, a lot of standard demographics questions, interspersed with several instances of solo kittens frolicking, outside on manicured lawns in the shade and from what I could tell, contained just one question "Do you know anyone applying for a job with the Transit Security Administration (TSA)?" Did anyone else bump into anything similar? I sent an email to Tellwut support, I also informed the survey company I was reporting this conduct in a debriefing comments section at the conclusion of the survey, and suggested that the survey providers that pushed this through should be banned from Tellwut. Tellwut knows I post here.

  21. at this point i would be very careful.Personal info should never be required.Since all these " new rules" and those horrible popups from the bottom of the page I have to say its better to move on.Its sad to see such a good site turn so bad.I wrote to customer service about the popups and they responded to just x them out. Guess what? As soon as I did it just opened the ad over and over again.I get that ads are neccesary but when the ruin your experience or drop malware on you pc its time to go.

  23. And of course you can be DQ for not meeting demographics i’ve challenged this, pointing out I filled in profile (and cint get you to complete more every day!) so why send a survey that I cannot qualify for? guess the response

  25. It seems like you get a separate quality score depending on the main panel that you belong to. I've gotten them on Tellwut and Branded Surveys. The frustrating thing is they deduct 20 points for surveys that are rejected and it doesn't come off for between 30 to 80 days. And they never tell you why a survey was rejected. If your score drops below 80 they give you a warning that you can be kicked off the panel. Most of these survey panels really treat members like trash.

  27. That would require fairness, integrity and transparency. Those words are excluded from survey and marketing language. Panel transparency is my most common comment when communicating to the panel support drones. Tellwut is the most common, a couple-few times a month, and I think they are tired of that personal drone.

  28. I don't think this isn't all that new. Commissioned surveys on many panels don't credit participation until "closed'. Which think is code for properly scrubbed. Pointless Clubbing could take up to six months to make a points award or invalidate the participation. Some panels like lifelesspoints would just claw back the points. So most likely the pop up is an attempt to reduce support requests for "where's my points". It could be that this is a new scheme to deny you points by dragging the approval out for a longtime, and you forget about it. In that possibility it will take work to detect and, and making a spreadsheet or document to track it would help. don't rely on panel integrity or mental notes. Mental notes aren't worth the paper they are written on:)

  29. If I start some sorta due diligence. Here's how I start. First I read the Term, TOS or TOC, and privacy policies. I look for an actual company address. If there is no address, bad sign. If there is an address, I reverse search, see what else is there. If it is a private mailbox service, bad sign. If I know the state and city, corporate record searches and DBA. Figure out the parties. If the company is really new, use TechCrunch or some business email search service, at this point your looking for skeletons. When I read the TOS I look for forfeiture, account closure and other the general demeanor. If there is a lot of "just because", bad sign. Next hop over to review sites, like SP, SiteJabber, TrustPilot, BBB, Federal Trade commission and so forth. Find out what rewards service they use and dig into that. If this is a lot of work, it is. However, I consume knowledge for entertainment and I've been through enough survey panels, if shaking the tree doesn't work, that sometimes you have to hit the tree with your stick of knowledge to get something to fall out. If instead they nix the account and keep my rewards, then I use the sledge of knowledge. Knowledge can always be recycled, ask any Theoretical Physicist:) Or could be the scout, wing it and tell us the outcomes.

  32. This is an utter scam, they take points off for no reason at all, to stop you getting surveys. I challenge them on this and they blocked the ticket, as they know they can't give a valid reason. Another company who I will run naked in the streets when they go out of business!

  33. Anyone ever get a survey that asks what generation you belong to as part of the screening questions? For the second day in a row I happened to get a survey that asked this question. Being from Generation X I answered likewise and I was immediately screened out - kicked back to Survey Junkie's site where I wasn't even told I didn't qualify or awarded any points for compensation. I wish I'd paid attention to this specific survey provider but I assume they're only looking for Millennials or younger for these surveys. I'll know better and skip these surveys as soon as I see that question.
