  1. Why can't survey sites be honest from the get go? 95% of the time surveys are MUCH longer than indicated. Do they want to lure us in and then tell us a 5 minute survey is 28 minutes?? I back out of this ploy over and over again. Wish they wouldn't waste our time. And sometimes it takes five minutes to see if we qualify for a supposedly five minute survey. In five more minutes we are told we don't qualify! (I won't even mention all the times that you finish a survey and then you are told that you don't qualify after the fact!. Well, I just mentioned it, sorry!) Why are we even getting surveys that we don't qualify for all the time anyway?? We fill out the profile. If we don't qualify, don't send it! Bottom line, be honest with us from the start, survey sites. If a survey is 30 minutes long don't say it is 5 minutes! AND if we don't qualify, don't send us the survey in the first place! (PS Steam is coming out of my ears right now!)

  2. My survey calibration chart. 5 minute surveys, 8-10 minutes 10 minute surveys, 12-15 minutes 15 minute surveys 20-22 minutes 20 minute surveys, 25-30 minutes 30 minutes surveys, 40-45 minutes Anything longer than 40 minutes, pack a lunch. My rule of thumb is, I don't do any surveys with time listed over 20 minutes. If a survey does not list a time or a progress meter, I do not take it.

  3. Today was the first day that I allowed a survey site to record me through my webcam for an extra reward. I was shocked at how short the exercise was and I actually got my extra reward! Does anyone here do this on a regular basis or have you done it in the past and will do it in the future? Thanks for your input

  5. Thanks for all your input and comments. Guess it will always be that way and will never change. But it is surely a legitimate gripe!

  6. I haven't had any surveys in weeks until today. Today I have 30 surveys! Drives me crazy, this "feast or famine" with Lifepoints. I don't have time to try so many surveys in one day. WHY can't I get a few a day instead of being bombarded in one day???? Grrrrrrrrr

  7. I think you even being generous with the 40 cents quote. Most of them listed for 20 minutes would yield you about 25 cents.

  8. Nope, you're not missing anything. Tellwut pays crap. I dumped them because it was a waste of time taking a survey for 20 minutes and maybe getting 40 cents for it if I was lucky. There are many sites that pay considerably more than that.

  9. I just signed up for Tellwut about three weeks ago. I have noticed that it is difficult to qualify for the surveys, also the reward for the surveys is very low. I have calculated that each point is worth only about 1/4 of a cent. In other words, a 100 point survey only pays 25 cents. If anyone sees this differently, please comment. At their reward level it will take forever to reach the 4000 points needed for a 10 dollar gift certificate. Why would I waste time on Tellwut when I could just go to a panel that pays better. When I reach the first cash-out threshold I will probably abandon Tellwut. Again, if I am missing something here, please comment.

  10. Tellwut is becoming inconsistent, since I keep screening out of the exernal survey, I can't participate in the users surveys. points accrual is very slow.

  11. I just did a survey on Fortright that paid me $1.50 that asked me my opinions on COVID vaccines and wearing masks. I said I had contempt for people that have not gotten vaccinated, and that I was very much pro mask. I just found out yesterday, that my state Illinois is one of only eight states that have a mask mandate. Even Michigan which has one of the highest rates of COVID in the country, and which has a Democratic governor does not have a mask mandate right now.

  12. I think that's when they send them out - when you look your worst.

  14. No, I don't do those. At all. I'm just uncomfortable with the whole idea--especially since I hate the way I look on video! :)

  15. It depends on the site. With Qmee, there are quite a few webcam surveys that only take a very short amount of time, and sometimes I can get $1.50 or more for five minutes or so. Other sites not so much. I’ve tried webcam surveys on other sites and got screwed. But if I can find some like the ones on Qmee, I’m perfectly willing to do a five minute survey for $1.50.

  16. You made $200 in two days watching videos? That sounds too good to be true. I would have passed on it.

  17. I am trying to change my email address on YouGov. Their support is atrocious, as in NONE. I do get surveys and I have collected my rewards without problems. In trying to change my email address, I have to sign in with my old email address and put in the code they send me. I put it in and then it asks for a code all over again. I can't even sign in, let alone change my email address. I also noticed that most survey sites require them to change your email address and some of them say if you do that, you cannot transfer your points! I don't get it. So disappointing.

  18. Hmmmm, glad you have lots available. Even this AM I have just a few and so far I click on them and they are all full. This is day number four with no surveys.
