    LEO

    Might be a first. I completed a LEO survey today for 1700 points and no questions about the lottery.

  2. Survey Junkie has a lot of bad reviews on here AND on other survey forums. Many claimed they don't pay out, lock accounts for no reason, and DQ you at the very end of a long survey. Perhaps some will have better luck than others, but be cautious with this one. Many people recommend stayimg away from this company.

    LEO

    Another thing their surveys are weird. I can't come up with another word to describe them. A typical LEO survey starts out asking some demographic questions which are pretty much the same in all their surveys. Then they usually ask you either some political questions or questions about the pandemic. Yesterday they asked a bunch of questions about the COVID 19 vaccine. And finally and I think this is the case with all of their surveys. They ask a bunch of questions about the lottery. How often do you play? What games do you play? Are you going to play this week? Can you buy lottery tickets for

  4. I quit them not too long ago. I just got tired of going long stretches of not getting any surveys, and jumping through hoops to deal with the reasoning behind it.

    LEO

    Maybe. I complained directly to them about that along with no surveys for 3+ months. The response was a canned one saying surveys are not always available. A few weeks after that , dropped them.

  6. I too am trying to avoid the Your Surveys. With those most of the time I wasn't even getting my 12 points for attempting the survey. My major gripe with PointClub is it takes what seems to be forever for pending points to be added to my account. I have roughly 12,000 pending points and need about 7000 of those to get a 25.00 PayPal payment.

    W-9

    Just wanted to add I had a similar situation with Neilson several years back when they paid me to carry a little meter around with me to record any media I listen to. At the end of the year, I made over $600 with them. They requested that I give them my SS# on a W9 form. I refused to fill it out. However, they still sent me a 1099 that was furnished to the IRS also with my name and address, and SS Number was blank. Therrfore, to play it safe, I still reported it on my taxes to the IRS, but never gave Nielson my SS#. If they send anything to the IRS, they will also send that info to you. No ne

  8. I get some surveys from them but am not able to cash out that often but when I do it it takes much longer than what you would expect for a PayPal payment. 4 weeks might pretty much be the norm for them.

    Every survey I got from them in the first 2 months of the 5 months I was with them was a clone of the above. After that , nothing. Dropped them.

    W-9

    I'm with you. Giving your social security number to a survey company is not a good idea .Nothing good can come out of that. Only bad things could happen. And I think you are right that you can't report earnings to the IRS without a social security number because that is how they identify you. People just have to keep track of their earnings and make sure they keep their cash outs under 600.00 for a survey panel in a given year so they won't put themselves in that position. But I do remember reading that a panel which I think was Opinion Outpost posting on their website a few years ago that on

    W-9

    Jesse, my advice is NOT to fill out that W-9 you were sent. I would not trust these survey companies with my SS#. HELL NO!! I would just lie low with them this year. I do not think they can report your earnings to the IRS without having your SS#. Even if they do, you would receive an official W4 or 1099 from them at the end of the year. The one bad thing that can happen from this is that the survey site decides to drop you.

    LEO

    I have a couple of problems with LEO. One is they haven't been sending me many surveys. I did get one yesterday and completed it but it might have been the first one I have received in a couple of months. My second complaint is they give you very little time to complete the surveys. They usually don't even give you 24 hours. I could get a survey in the afternoon and they might say you have until 9:00 that evening to complete it. If I am lucky I will do maybe one 20.00 cash out in a year with them and it may even take longer than a year to get to 20.00. If you are looking to make a little extra

  16. The back of your driver's license would have a bar code which could be scanned and might give somebody some personal info. Why would any survey company need that? I have done surveys before where I had to watch a movie trailer and a couple where I had to watch an episode of a TV program and no personal info was asked for. Just clicked on the video and watched the trailer or program.

  17. Yep, I'm a member. The receipts don't have to be from different stores. We can easily have 10 receipts in a week at my house. The surveys are only like $.25 or $.50. I think there were 3 last month so I got $10.75.

  18. I typically avoid High point surveys on Tellwut, because late, and even terminal screen out at the end of the survey happens way too often. I think enough other Tellwut panelists developed that sentiment as well. Enough that Tellwut was able to detect it. So, Tellwut has apparently made the short surveys equally unpleasant, by presenting primarily routers. I tried a survey and was bounced multiple times between unpleasant megapanels, like Say-So, CINT, SSI, Daynata, Your-Surveys, Innovatemr (parent company of PointClub) and others. I stuck with this for over 12 minutes, just to see how terribl

  20. One thing I have noticed with Point Club in recent months is their surveys or missions like they call them are paying very little compared to what they used to pay. There are very few surveys that pay even 1000 points which I think is the equivalent of a dollar and now most of them pay 500 points or less. But today must have been my lucky day because I actually completed a survey for 4125 points. But surveys like that are very few and far between. And a lot of the surveys as others have mentioned are through Your Surveys and when that happens I am not even getting my 12 points for attempting

  21. I use them as a router on my survey site. They are scam artists. When I asked them to provide proof of the trap questions I failed, they stopped the ticket so I could not reply back. I'm getting fed up of these survey companies.

  22. Folks, The new incarnation of SurveyHoney has proven to even worse than before the resurrection. SurveyHoney fields "surveys" for other survey companies, and they are almost exclusively routers. I had an extended dialogue with "support" about this misrepresentation and the pat response was "we have no responsibility for what the companies we field for do. I suggested two ways to counter this panelist abuse, use the fielding contracts to identify routers or debrief the panelists and ask them if they were exposed to a router. Both suggestions were ignored. This apparently also includes blun

  23. I’m in a mood today for some reason. I think it’s the heat. Very hot and humid, and that kind of weather makes me irritable. Anyhoo, I thought I’d post some survey companies I think are good, some middle of the road, and some badder than bad. First the good: 1.) Prolific - This survey site is top notch in my opinion. I don’t get screened out of surveys through them. The pay for most of the surveys is excellent. There is a mix of very short surveys, some longer ones, and ones that may go an hour but pay really good. The minimum you need to cash out is only £5.00. They have Pa

  24. Folks, I've been a member of various vision critical forum panels in the past. Be aware that there are no cumulative rewards or perks. no discounts, special offers or even measly coupons. The only incentive is entry into a game of chance, a drawing. I never got anything for all my efforts and it is real easy to become discouraged when you get nothing in return. I seriously question the ethics of any corporation that relies on a game of chance as the reward. This is a legitimized way to get work for free. While they do state that the rewards have been quintupled, $1250 per sweeps take to 5

  25. You're exactly right David. That's why I stopped doing their surveys. I did one for a new upcoming TV show. The show was awful. I guess I didn't give the right answer that the producers were looking for me and they gave me zero credit. 20 minutes for 260 points. After that, I waited until I could cash out for $10 and never went back.

  28. So I got a bunch of product tests from IPSOS through a third-party survey panel and for weeks now IPSOS has completely blocked me from taking any of their studies by giving me a 'Survey Closed" message when reality that message is a soft ban. I don't know who manages this company but this just does not make any sense, they sent me a bunch of products to test but when I try to visit every follow-up study I get the "Survey Closed" message. There is no way to contact the company, every time I tried contacting them through their [email protected] email it bounces as undeliverable. Now they are pr

  29. Has anyone out there had a negative interaction with ProductReportCard.com? I had many points "PENDING" which if they had been credited to my account, I would have had the required $25 to cash out. Since they chose to keep those pending points pending, I never reached that plateau. So they continually deducted points from my account (because they had a 365 day expiration). Now they deactivated my account. What a joke! Forget them.

  30. Here is the NEWEST message so that I can't take Tellwut surveys! I have been able to take a VERY few as samplicio.us apparently has blocked me as well as other Tellwut members (see above post). SO I work around it and try to find surveys from other companies. The message below just started today, a message I am repeatedly getting: "Thank you for participating.

  31. Yep, this is all too familiar. I recently completed a very long survey, whose stated time was ten minutes; its point value was 110. The very first thing I saw when I started it was a disclaimer that it would involve heavy reading, and that the reading alone would take at least THIRTY MINUTES. I chose to proceed, because its description sounded really interesting. SIXTY MINUTES later, I completed the survey, which involved a real court case, rendering my verdict, explaining why, and so on. It not only included copious reading material (and paying attention to things like police office
