    Survey Stashing: PureProfile hints & tips 12th May 09 at 1:12 PM
    What’s this about? Willing to give your view on the Labour Party, answer questions about your sex life, or test out the latest moisturiser? If so, it’s possible to earn £100s a year, without any special skill or talent. It’s all about stashing cash from filling in online surveys or taking part in focus groups.

    The first point of call is read the full Survey Stashing guide.
    Then having found the best survey sites, this discussion is specifically to talk about feedback and tips for the survey site


    PureProfile


    If you want to discuss survey sites in general please go to the Survey Stashing Discussion.

    If you’ve got a suggestion/tip

    Simply click reply and add your suggestion, though its worth scanning down first to check it's not been duplicated.

    Have been with Pure Profile quite a while and received several £25 payouts.

    They don't always send an email for surveys and it's worth checking every day to see whether anything available. Not been invited to do a focus group.

    These days very few surveys for my profile.

    The trick with PureProfile is definitely to log in every day and press the 'Next Button' which leads you on to any available surveys. I very rarely get any survey alerts emailed to me so I log in every day and generally receive 2-3 per week.

    Today, for example, I logged on and had 3 waiting for me. I got screened out of one of the surveys but PureProfile pay a small amount as a screen-out reward (10p) so it does help to build your total up to payout level which is £25.

    To date, I've received two payouts from PureProfile and am currently on £22.80 so looking forward to requesting another shortly.

    Ive had one payout already and Im now at £16. Ive found the way to make more is at the 1st question when they ask if you or a close relative work at one of the listed occupations, always click no and you'll go on to the next step

    Finally!
    Thought this would be a good first post!

    So I joined PureProfile in June 2004 and it started well and my first 8 surverys each paid £1 each so I thought getting to the £25 would be no problem at all. Then they started dropping to anywhere between 5 and 40p and the amount of surveys sent to me started to dry up.

    Here's what I was sent

    2004 - 4 Surveys (bear in mind I joined in June)
    2005 - 1 Survey!
    2006 - 15 Payments (I say payments because for a while they paid for web searches I think. They were like 40p a go)
    2007 - 5 Surveys
    2008 - 30 Surveys
    2009 - 17 Surveys

    So as I got older, the surveys became more frequent, which to be honest, I can understand. The fact that it took me 72 surveys to get to the minimum payment shows how measly the rewards often were. I have requested the payment so fingers crossed it goes through. I will then have to decide whether to stop using the site or whether to carry on for what might end up being another few years...

    The surveys and the site are very easy to navigate and I've always felt PureProfile has the best feel to it...shame it takes so long to get some wonga!

    I use quite a few survey sites, and the reason I like PP is that you get at least SOME kind of reward, even if you don't qualify. 5p it may be, but 5p makes me feel that I have not COMPLETELY wasted my time.

    Best tip is to check back all the time as they're not great at emailing out like other sites are.

    Hi Guys,

    I was the UK Sales manager for Pure profile in the UK. - any proof of this ?

    Surveys were slow as there are a number of larger companies operating in the UK - sorry it's taking you so long to reach the threshold!

    You can find most of these companies on a site called MyViewPays - thresholds are lower and surveys more frequent!

    Is it just me, I joined on 13th July and am still waiting for my first survey. I log in 3to4 times a week. Have also emailed them, though there has been no reply to my last one. Think I'll just give up.
