    I love populuslive! I had a quiet period a few weeks ago but i've started getting a few more surveys recently. I joined them 1 year ago and Ive had £50 cheque twice and am on £41 so almost at my third cheque, its worth persevering although it is annoying to get half way through and be screened out

    Is this company really just a bunch of con artists? Would anyone find it reasonable to get to 48 points with redemption at 50 in October 2014 and still be waiting for a survey that I am not automatically screened out?
    Is there any recommendations form anyone apart from contacting Watchdog/Rip off Britain to warn people to stay away from this site.

    Like Saddler1975 says, this is a legit site. I have cashed out quite a few times since I joined many years ago. If you're not getting any emails then I would contact them. It could be that the emails are getting lost in your spam folder, or if you haven't opened them for a long time they get returned and your email address taken off.

    I go through periods of nothing from this site so I wonder if they cycle groups of users, or I'm just a less useful demographic. I've made £100 this year - last redemption came through last week - so its a slow burn but this time once I got to 40 points I got the next 10 and more in just a few days which I was surprised about as others had complained that wouldn't be the case. Perhaps just lucky this time.

    Populus have a Facebook page, but it's not well maintained.


    You could try contacting them at info@PopulusLive.com and see what they suggest.


    Good luck!

    Populus live not replying to emails
    I'm having problems with populus live as well. I can't login to my account​. I've reset the password a few times and it just doesn't like me.

    I've sent an email but no reply. I'm still getting surveys but have no idea how many points i have or if they've got the information they need to pay me.

    They're not presenting themselves in a very professional way, and i don't use Twitter. Has anyone managed to contact them in another way?

    Thanks,
    Tina

    I was having the same problem Tina until I realised I was trying to log in using my email address instead of my user name. Once I used that I got in no problem. You are likely not as daft as me but thought I would mention in case.

    I requested on Populuslive website to update my details. Today is the 12th working day and my details haven't yet been updated. Can anyone tell me if you changed your details and how much time it took?
    P.S They are not replying to my email
    Thanks

    Guys I need help regarding populuslive
    So guys I have received like 4-5 surveys on PopulusLive and at the same question they screen me out. The question they ask is at the start of a survey if you or any of your family work in certain industries, including Market Research and PR etc. Now what options should I select at this question. Thanks

    Populuslive surveys
    Hi guys,
    Sorry this may seems really stupid but just writing on here to check how can you earn money on this website just log in and got so confused? Do you just wait for them to send you the surveys to your email? Do you know any other websites online that you can earn money from??
    Thanks,
    Olivia

    If you do a search there's a couple of threads on here about survey sites but not many pay cash, it's more often vouchers of some sort.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    The survey sites I belong to, all seem to have a cash via PayPal option usually at about £5.00 or £10.00. You can sometimes get a better deal if you opt for Amazon or store vouchers. You should read the Swagbucking thread.
