  6. Hi- Somebody was saying that they were not getting surveys from Valued Opinions. You have to go to their website and log in. When I did that yesterday, a ton of surveys came up, and I made $15.

  7. Love your comment on YS/Cint. I agree with you, they totally suck. Qmee is notorious for late declines. Every time I get one, I email their support to complain. Pretty much all the survey sites do this. Forthright and their partner surveys are awful. I sent them four emails in the space of one day because of this. They give the same sorry excuse. We are not their customers in the end, just the poor slobs that get repeatedly screwed. Their actual customers are multi-million and billion dollar conglomerates who pay them handsomely. It will always be this way.

  8. I never bother with them anymore for a variety of reasons, the main ones being that I rarely ever qualify for their surveys and on the rare times that I do, they're always long and tedious surveys. I can imagine how irritating it must be to get an error message with them, though.

  9. I had five hundred points taken,but by the time Lifeless did the claw back, I had cashed out. So, My account is at -500 points. What probably happened is the client that Lifeless fielded the survey for was scrubbing the survey results and your responses were out of bounds, probably not wrong, just what they can't use. They didn't want to pay for your answers. Perchance, do you recall if it was a financial survey? I've had financial surveys scrubbed at Pointless clubs and American Consumer Opinion (ACOP).

  10. I've been a member of the 020/20 panel for over 20 months and have not been able to redeem even the minimum reward,$5. The accrual rate stalled over a year ago, once I got past $4. There were only "Focus Group" screenings and those had $0 reward, I've completed over 50 screenings and never participated in any focus groups. The 20/20 had a very sly way of even getting recognition for participating in these screens. The 20/20panel munged the exiting web page so that it gave a domain error. They left out the .com from the web address. I would manually complete the URL and get a valid exit from the survey screening. I reported this several times and there was never an Acknowledgement. April 2020, the 20/20 panel was purchased by the Schlesinger Group, Iselin, NJ. So, I visited their website and looked for away to contact. They apparently only want to communicate with those that have money. So, I filed a BBB complaint. When I filed the BBB complaint, I discovered that the Schlesinger Group is a real piece of work. 100's of negative reviews and complaints, almost fifty just in the last year. If the Schlesinger Group sleaze balks at honoring my reward request, I'm going to file complaints to all the professional organizations the Schlesinger Group lists on their landing page. Starting with ESOMAR.

  12. I think one of the keys is to be able to tell which surveys are going to be able to allow you to finish in a reasonable amount of time and which ones are going to take a long time. If the survey is asking you to provide a lot of very detailed information and the progress bar is moving very slowly in my opinion you'd be better off just Xing out and trying a different one. After you have done this awhile you'll be able to recognize those surveys that are going to take way too much of your time. A couple of rules of thumb for me. I never take a survey that is listed over 20 minutes and I never take one that doesn't have some kind of progress meter (bar), even though can sometimes be rather inaccurate. I try to go with the kind of surveys that have worked for me in the past, one example is most Qualtrics surveys can be completed in a reasonable amount of time and there are other survey providers, through experience, I have learned that I can trust. Don't take just any survey that comes up, go with those that over time you have figured out that you can get though without spending an inordinate amount of time. My bulletin board above my desk is filled with sticky notes with URLs of surveys that have taken way too long or they have disqualified me after I have completed the survey. I just avoid those altogether. I have a daily goal, an amount I want to achieve and I have cultivated knowledge about which surveys will help me get there in the least amount of time and I am going to get there whether it takes me 3 hours, 4 hours or 6,7, hours.

  13. Branded went into decline, at least from the stand point of a serious panelist, with a daily rotation. This began a few years ago, when Branded decided to "improve" the surveys and panelists' experience. The started by hiring black-holes to run the panelist forums and take support requests, Some support requests reach escape velocity and make it out, because they are light weight palliative responses support. so i do the daily fiver and profile updates. Lately there has been a trend ask how much the panelists like the variuos features of branded, and quite a few state they like or really like. However, there was one salient survey, how many other survey panels the members of branded are active on. Most are just on Branded some some do a few. I think that means the most comon panelist has very shallow depth of experience. I don't know if that's the case for other panels, but if the tolerance of crappy service from support is an indicator, probably yes. I use to submit creative feedback, but it frequently wasn't even acknowledged. So now I just apprise panels of my lousy experiences that I post on review boards and if i'm lucky there's a denatured response from the automated human. So yeah, branded ran themselves into the ground, ignored the skilled panelists that pay attention and had experience to formulate a cogent sentence. So I stick around with Branded for the anthropological and meager daily rewards, I try stuff and watch what happens.. For instance I had a spate of sterilized responses from support and was ticked. I was ticked enough to spend a few hours settting my profile to "none of the above", "preferred not to say", other, no, and ambiguous. After awhile i noticed that it it didn't change the survey, offerings.

  14. I've been a member of Branded Surveys for over 6 months now. I can't tell you how frustrating it is sometimes when you spend 15+ minutes taking a survey, and then they say it is closed or you don't qualify. If you rush through a survey, they will deduct points from your quality score. But yet they send a ton of emails telling you to open ASAP for the next survey. What's worse, is that they sometimes reject a survey a week or two later and you have no idea why. There doesn't seem to be anyone available to send email about issues that come up. They do pay promptly though and I'd recommend you cash out on a weekly basis. But the biggest issue I've noticed is with the Leaderboards. Most of the surveys I've taken have point and money values from 5 cents to 4 dollars. And many surveys take longer than 10 to 20 minutes to respond to. Even if you spend like 6 or 8 hours in a day responding to the higher value surveys, the MOST I ever got in a day was like $12. The thing is, that if you look at the leaderboards with money values, how are people getting $40 or $50+ per day from these surveys? And even worse, there are a number of panelists that are getting $400 to $500 a month. Is this a scam by Branded Surveys in the rankings to get more people to participate or is there something else more shady going on for the top earners? Yes there are some special surveys that can have focus groups or off line activities where you can earn $25 - 50+ for participating, but that comes directly from the private company sponsoring the survey and NOT from Branded Surveys. So how are there so many panelists earning these high rewards?

  15. There are times I'm tempted to fix them good and give them a fake address. I simply don't care about repercussions. I've had much of my survey earnings stolen and to me, the ends justify the means. They are going to screw me, I will throw that right back in their faces.

  16. Also get asked that information for certain political surveys so they can verify voter registration status I suppose.

  17. If you are a plagiarist, then you will like Tellwut. Mind-numbing, copy-pasted articles with question asked again and again. We get 10 points for doing dimwit’s survey almost daily... Also, we get 10 points for doing weirdo’s surveys. (He will try to friend you if you are a commenter.) Tip: If you want to submit a survey to get approved, just copy and paste the most dull info on any topic, and add the questions. Voila! Instant approval. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Keep doing this. Eventually, you will succeed! Other survey sites are far better than Tellwut.

  18. In just over an hour, I have already completed two surveys and not been paid and had two late screen outs on Qmee. This is an utter scam and I'm sick of it. When are companies like Qmee going to stop hiding behind the excuse of "we don't agree with when they do this, we have no control" yes you do! remove these surveys from your platform and companies. On another note, why are YS/Clint (I hate them) surveys so slow. They take forever to load, I had just had a shower and a shave, sat down to take a survey, by the time the survey loaded I had a full grow beard again! Update your page, it's like something from the 90s. Qmee need to improve, it's been awful on their site lately.

  19. I can't be the only one who is constantly experiencing error messages after completing surveys from Toluna! 'It's Not You But Us' is the usual one and when getting back to the Toluna Website, finding no points have been awarded for the survey! Then of course, contacting them and getting the usual patronising spiel about having to wait a few weeks for the points (with some surveys) when we all know, that we ALWAYS wind up having to contact them again and again and again...........before we can get anything done! By the time we get the points (if we do) we have earned them several times over; needing to keep a tally of everything and remembering dates, etc. when we need to contact Toluona again! I for one am sick and tgired of this. This sort of thing has been going on for far too long now and it's about time time Toluna got its website problems sorted!

  20. Yeah, on the Prolific site, it actual states that they are basically taking a week off. I imagine most sites do this. The week after Christmas is typically the slowest of the entire year. I don’t even bother to check my typical sites that week. It may pick up a little after the new year, maybe by the second week of January.
