Survey sites shutting down

in Boost your income
8 replies 1.5K views
Hi there, not sure if this is the right place to post this or if I am asking a silly question but...
In the last few months, about 5 of the survey sites I am signed up to have closed down without so much as an e-mail to let me know. I probably had about £25 between them that I have lost. I am wondering if there is a way to get it back? Who would I complain to?

    There is a body to complain to but it would be nice to know who you are talking about first.

    I will take this with a pinch of salt, mainly because you really should LIST THEM, as this is quite frustrating.

    Also, all surveys work differently, some you have to do in one sitting, others in full screen and Pinecone can drop you at an instant and NEVER give you a reason and never email you back when you ask them.

    5 you say, forgotten your login details, been dropped like Pinecone, have you been banned? We can't possibly say/help unless you LIST them. So please do.

    All mine seem fine for now, so I will take this with a pinch of salt.

    TIP: However, a good rule of thumb, if you are saving up to bank any rewards, do this regularly or as soon as possible, as if survey sites (or any company disappears), you could lose it all.

    I have never heard of these. How did you find them?

    Better sticking with tried and tested sites like my survey, valued opinions, you gov, one poll, I poll, pinecone, crowdology etc

    Do a search on here, those 3 have closed cos they aren't that good in the first place
    I know Honest Rewards owner has been mentioned on here before, not in a good way.
    T.W.I.T if memory serves me right was very similar to Surveyhead so you aint missing much there
    W.P.P.S was just another company trying to get big using Cint surveys, again .. no big loss.
