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


I-Say (formerly Ipsos)

    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.
  • i have found them quite good, had two or three amazon vouchers from them now.

    My voice is another good one surveys are usually short and sweet and 3-4 months 20quid amazon voucher. I can refer anyone that wants to try it 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.
  • i had my first capital bonds voucher the other week.... though about the same time I did a mobile survey with £5 amazon voucher as payment....not got it yet....emailed a few weeks ago and they said it would be in the next 3 weeks (may dig out that email....)

    its been ok for me....not had many surveys lately though

    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

    Likewise I haven't received the £5 voucher for the mobile survey. I would be interested to know if you hear anything further about this

    So expect the points required to get vouchers to be increased to cover the costs of our new website.
  • 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.
