  1. When I started a survey that the charlatans said would take only a minute or two, I said "YEAH!!!! SURE!!!!!" to myself. BUT THEY WERE TELLING THE TRUTH!!!!! I answered 3 questions about what fruits I buy, and, believe or not, I ,made $1!!!!! Now I hate those dopes only a little bit less.

  2. I am getting so frusterated with Paidviewpoint. There have been so many glitches ever since they revamped their website. They failed to follow the old principle that if its not broken, don't fix it. For the past couple of days it freezes up when clicking on their magic link to login OR just freezes up mid survey. I already sent CS two emails. Why did they have to take a perfectly good website and screw it up?? Currently I cannot even get into my Account. Circles just keep spinning. Am I the only one having these issues?

  3. I just cashed out with Paid Viewpoint several days ago for $51, and yes you have to have a paypal account to cash out, but I was able to get $51 worth of Amazon GC on my first payout, and with Amazon, you get the GC within minutes. I still have a ways to go on the trait score. I am at 7,080, but once I get a TS of 10,000, I can get the higher paid surveys.

  6. I hve been doing surveys for 8 years. I very rapidly learned that the only way to make money is to LIE as much as possible. And when presented with a lot of multiple choice questions, I first scan the page to check for questions like "Fill in #4 so we can see that you're paying attention".. I then do that, and then randomize the rest of the answers. And if anyone is deranged enough to go along with the grifters' scams, they need not seek medical treament. THEY ARE BEYOND HELP!!!!!!!!!

  7. They always do that on the first payout. The same thing happened to me & my wife when we first went to cash out. But on my second cashout, and my wife's second cashout, we had no problems.

  9. You are not in the US and that is why you feel screwed compared to the people in the US. Well maybe you should not do surveys anymore then, if you truly don't enjoy it. I just did a survey on PV that paid me $5. It took me forever to finish it though.

  10. I just found out I couldn't cash out for $3 Amazon. I used to do $3 Paypal. Now nothing. If they aren't going to offer low rewards, maybe it's time to up the points for each survey? I don't get alot of surveys anymore so it's not like I'm going to get rich off of them anytime soon.

  12. I am finding that if you don't jump on a survey immediately it disappears as the quota is supposedly met. It seems to be much worse as of late or am I just imagining things? Maybe it's the astronomical cost of everything continually going up in price? Maybe folks are looking for a bit more cash because of this so they are attempting to take surveys? What do you think?

  13. I think there are less heavy duty survey takers than there were, because there are not as many good survey sites. I don't belong to as many survey panels as I did two years ago. There are some that I dropped because I was not eligible for many surveys, or most of the surveys are only worth $.25. I would join Prolific, but they now require your ID, which I refuse to give them. The same with Valued Opinion too. Valued Opinion owes me $120, but they now require an ID, which I refuse to give them, and plus I cannot log into my account there too.

  14. I know it is still not what you want, but Paid Viewpoint pays a minimum of $.10 for every survey, and the $.10 surveys raise my trust score. My trust score is 7,090 right now. I only do surveys for Amazon GC, and so I don't expect to live off of the money I make doing surveys. The majority of the people doing surveys are people over the age of 60 who are no longer working, and so they have time to do surveys. I just cashed out for $51 on Paid Viewpoint. If you think they are not paying you enough money, then don't do surveys. I also do market research that pays a lot more than surveys, and I have done a few panels that pay more. I do surveys while I am watching tv and I currently only do five different surveys. I used to do more, but I decided some of them were not worth it, like Inbox Dollars. Paid Viewpoint gets mostly five star reviews on SP, and so there must be some people that like them.

  15. Update: I figured out the problem. I had to update the Chrome browser App on my phone. It was too outdated to satisy their secure login I assume. I also had the same problem with Paidviewpoint, which was when I realized something must be screwed up with my browser.

  16. Same here. I was finally able to cash out. I also had to update my chrome browser app to be able to access their site and log in. One lesson learned from this is do not let that much cash sit in any survey site. As soon as you hit the min to cash out, do it! Remember, money in bank accounts earn interest....money accumulating in survey sites have no benefit. Cash out as soon as you can for all sites.

  17. There are far less good survey sites in general, therefore I think there are less people taking surveys. Paidviewpoint has been annoying ever since they made those unnecessary changes to their platform. I think it just glitches a lot and says you have a survey available, when there never was one to begin with. This only started happening since they made those stupid changes to their site. Therefore, I blame the site...not that there are more people taking surveys.

  18. I did three surveys on Paid Viewpoint today though, and made $1.16. I do run across times when I only got the survey 30 minutes ago, and it is full already. ago

  19. I am just saying that there is not a need for additional white non hispanic survey takers because they are the most common survey takers, and are much more likely to take a survey than a hispanic person is. The most common survey taker is over the age of 60 too, because they have more time to do surveys, but the survey companies in general want people that are much younger.

  20. Been seeing that a lot this week on Paidviewpoint. A survey comes up while you are at the site is is gone in a couple of seconds. Either lots more are taking them or more surveys are being put out there that only need a small sample.

  24. I can't speak to whether other demographics get more surveys, but I can definitely say, as a white, non-Hispanic, "no need" is definitely an exaggeration.

  25. On several surveys that I have done recently, the mutants now have a new game......they understate the survey length. A few surveys said 5 to 7 minutes, but I spent about 20 minutes on them. Fortunately, I got paid. And now I have yet another reason not to trust the deviants that dream up that nonsense.

  26. I do read the surveys but pick and choose what surveys I do. Very long surveys tend to be even longer and those I avoid. Shorter surveys, under 15 minutes, usually are longer than that as well. ( Do believe times stated for most surveys are well underestimated to get us hooked) So I pick and choose which of those surveys I actually attempt to do, according to past experience with a particular survey company. PaidViewpoint pays for a very few minutes of our time and the money really adds up there. I only belong to a few other sites nowadays( been taking surveys online for over 20 years) and I am selective as to which surveys I attempt, half of which I try to take I get booted out of in the first 5 or 10 minutes. It is all a matter of time and how much nonsense you can tolerate. Unfortunately I am very intolerant now, survey sites have changed and don't seem to care much about us. They throw us out and give no reasons or when you finish a survey you are told you don't qualify, using our results and not paying us. Bottom Line, pick and choose what surveys you take, be as truthful as you can, and just try to make a little extra cash without too much aggravation.

  29. I read the surveys. I just did a survey on Paid Viewpoint about electric toothbrushes that had me look at all of the different toothbrush heads, and which ones I liked the best, and which ones I liked the least and why. I read the whole survey, and got paid $1.07. It took me 15 minutes to go through it all.

  32. The bothersome aspect is that it asked early on if you bought food/snacks for immediate consumption , which I indicated that I rarely do. So , why continue the survey to completion?

  35. How about the ones that have a list of 10 or 12 stores and you have to select when you last shopped there. Usually there's only one or two on the list I have EVER shopped at but yesterday there were seven. They STILL managed to then ask me how much I spent at a store I just told them I've never shopped at.

  38. I just wish surveys would put the important screen-out questions at the front, instead of asking us for 5 minutes of demographics and then asking us if we've bought x/y/z in the past 3 months and screening us out when we say no. Why not just ask that first?! That is also a pipe dream, though - survey writers don't have any incentive to care about whether they're wasting our time, so why would they care?

  40. Looks okay but I need AUD25 to get a payment, so from past bad experience with these sites that make you do that much to get rewards I probably wont stick with it.

  41. I don't agree at all, they start paying something when the trustscore is very high, until then they slave the filler for $0.03. If that's adding up quickly and comfortably, I think you have a serious problem with conception. Imagine that I go to work as a waiter and they have me practice for 6 months and "climb the ranks" and then... work from time to time and earn something. That's paidviewpoints. What would you say if a real business offered you something like that? I would like to believe and presuppose in advance that you would reject it. LOL.

  42. Support did get back to me and recommended I download their app instead. This did work for about a week, but now I cannot view my Dashboard, Earnings, or Cash out on the app either. This is ridiculous. I should have cashed out while I still could. I just emailed customer support again. So sad, because they were once my longest running steady survey site with no issues until they made all these changes to their site.

  43. I just finished one done on Survey Monkey (which lets anyone and his dog create surveys), and each page had two buttons to submit your answer, Okay and Done. Either one went to the next page.

  44. Just got the following: 1) Do you have any pets? None That was the ONLY choice. I have 2 dogs but since I had no choice but None I clicked on None and got the following: "We are sorry but you do not qualify as we are looking for pet owners" Go figure!
