    I've just joined Ipsos and I'm finding it difficult to complete surveys in time. They notify me by email of a survey but when I go to the site to do it, they have already had enough respondents, so I just get a small credit instead of the full credit.

    I initially thought this was because it might take me an hour or two to get to my home pc to do the survey (if I'm in work), but I just answered one immediately at home and the same thing happened!

    I have only recently joined Ipsos and had similar experiences if you respond to the email alert. On the plus side at least they do give you points as many don't when you screen out. Something I recently learnt is that Ipsos don't always send out alerts immediately and if you can logon onto your box intermittently you may find surveys 'lurking' in your box. In my experience you stand better chance of not being screened out if you can get to the surveys before the alert goes out.

    Good site for me, plentiful surveys and took me around 4-5 weeks to cash out a £10 amazon voucher. Though did anyone get a survey about 4 weeks ago about an opportunity of which the incentive was a £35 voucher for completing a media usage diary? They said they'd contact me about it within a month but its been a month now and I haven't heard anything about it.

    They are quite good at rewarding you if you fail to qualify for the survey. I know it's only 5-20 points, but they soon add up

    Compared to other sites where the only 'reward' for failing to qualify is a prize-draw entry

    I hadn't heard about these forthcoming changes to IAP, but I tried logging in the other day and it didn't recognise my email - wonder if this is something to do with the site being redesigned? I have emailed them to query it. It's pretty annoying as I'm only 1 or 2 surveys away from my next voucher.

    Thanks katykicker - I tried logging in on another browser there just in case it was yet another IE problem, but it's not! I'll just need to wait on IAP getting back to me.

    I had a reply from IAP regarding my email not being recognised. They're saying I sent an 'unsubscribe' request and that they removed all my details as requested. There is absolutely no way I sent such a request (I was quite happy with the site, and furthermore was nearly at the stage of being able to claim my next reward!). It's all very odd and I'm not sure I will re-join - makes me wonder how secure their accounts are.

    Having now checked to see what the 'unsubscribe' process involves with IAP, I now know without a shadow of a doubt that I couldn't even have unsubscribed in error. When you click 'unsubscribe', it takes you to a page asking you to enter your details and select a reason for unsubscribing. It also says the unsubscribe will be confirmed by email. So it's not as if it's something you could do in error, or without knowing you'd done it.

    Are you with Google Mail by any chance? If so, if you hit the spam button by accident it can be possible for that to send out an unsubscribe request.

    I'm with Yahoo mail. I tend to keep hold of emails, and the last correspondence I had with IAP was their 'Merry Christmas, thanks for being a panellist' one. I haven't sent anything or received anything from them since. I've queried the unsubscribe thing with them and have asked for more details, so we'll see what happens.
