    I often see some subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) bias in these political surveys. The way they're constructed, for example, steering you to answer a certain way or even the actual wording of the questions. That's why even though I do surveys, I disregard the findings. Think by now we all know how misleading/wrong surveys, polls, etc. can be. (Edit to include something else I just thought of.) These sort of surveys also can be factually flawed. Recently had two similar surveys asking whether I would support or oppose certain legislation in my state. Problem was that two of the pieces of legislation had already been proposed, put on the ballot, voted on, passed and enacted...as much as three years ago! I pointed this out in both the first and second survey (in the survey comments section), but I begin to suspect that when you're asked for comments about a survey, they often are ignored, wasting my time and very rudimentary keyboard skills.

    Yeah, I have seen some interesting stuff in political surveys lately. A lot of them have questions on how I feel about investigations, impeachment, what direction the country is going to, etc. I think things will continue to get more interesting, and more biased in the surveys as we get closer to the election.

    Logged on to E-rewards and after clicking the "find a survey" link, a screen came up asking me to check over my information and make any changes. The city box was blank so I typed my city in and hit submit. The next screen said I didn't qualify for that survey! What in the world? Lol

    Oh yeh, I can't tell you how many times I have completed the survey and I am thanked, and then "poof!" no credit, I would be disqualified. It's maddening, but they do all the time.

    What with a new election coming up where I live and all the BS going on in the government, been getting quite a few political surveys lately. Was curious what others felt about these, sometimes they end up feeling like some sort of ad for a particular person.

    hopefully the BBB will light a fire under them but I'm not optimistic if not maybe one of the tv stations consumer affairs dept might run with it

    I'm guessing they are to "verify your humanity." The ones I've gotten never have any relevance to the actual survey topic. Or, maybe there are some open-ended text questions somewhere in the survey, and they want to see if you're going to give answers that are too short or nonsensical?

    I used them for several years and a year ago, they made a slide to crapland. I stopped doing surveys in january and only did the daily polls, it took 10 months to make a payout. After that I started trying surveys again but only undertake surveys that have a single digit estimate time. otherwise I move to my next book marked panel.

    That's probably just the screening process to filter out the bots and shysters. It's a lot better than a Captcha put together by an AI that can't tell the difference between an 18 wheeler, bus, or RV.

    I can totally relate! Been there, done that. This happens to me every day I do surveys. As others mentioned, it is kind of a complex process, so you’re not alone. It is frustrating, that I agree with. I just shrug and go on to the next survey. It’s not worth wasting your time trying to get compensation. Most survey companies don’t give a flying fig about the survey taker. However, as Cricket mentioned, One Opinion is pretty good at giving you credit if you get disqualified toward the end of a survey. And Prolific doesn’t disqualify you. I’d like to believe, as TheInsider stated, that if you don’t get through a survey, that they don’t keep the information you gave them. I’m a bit skeptical regarding that, but hope that is the case. I belong to half a dozen different survey companies. Through them, I clear $150-$200/month. It nicely supplements my pension. You gotta be persistent and just keep at it. I probably spend 3-5 hours a day working on surveys, and between all the survey companies, make at least $5/day. Hang in there and best of luck to you.

    I joined Prolific after reading about it here and I was not sure about it. But I got an invite and then another. I did cash out once already for $18. And I think I have $15 again already. What I like is that I haven't been dq'd yet. I will do anything they offer. Even for a few cents. I like these folks a lot.

    Actually wound up getting to another cash out faster than I thought I would due to last Saturday when I pretty much ran out of any decent surveys elsewhere and decided to give OneOpinion another shot. Got enough DQ points and completed (with credit) enough surveys to reach the cash threshold. (I had already been fairly close.) Requested payment Tuesday and got it in PayPal today. So withdrawals seem to be working okay for now.

    I'm logged into the new E-Rewards site. Noticed Macy's was gone. Before the change all Macy's and Starbucks were out of stock. Now I noticed Starbucks is no longer a redemption option. Anyone else seeing certain vendors are off their E-Rewards account?

    Yep, me too. Same day. I have not had this happen before. Their site has gone downhill fast the last several months. Lots of issues. I don't think they are even a legit site anymore for surveys as they seem to just want new customers so they can sell their personal information. It used to be one of the best, now it is one of the worst. Not paying rewards, no customer service at all, I could go on and on.

    I think it's high time we protest and go on strike with all survey companies,. We want a raise.when. We start a survey using our time, and our devises we should be paid 50 cents for each survey attempt and if the companies disqualify us they should be hold accountable to paying us members who work hard being a member. And I think we should be paid by the minute. 25 cents a minute. What do you say people, should we go on STRIKE. I believe we should..

    I am sick of Valued Opinions. They used to give you a survey and it was just there. Now they ask questions to see if you qualify and it's the same survey...if you even get one and I always disqualify. I used to cash out at least once a month. Now it drags on and on. I haven't gotten a survey that panned out in months. thanks dawn for the recommendation of Prolific. I'll check it out.
