    If you're willing to work for 70p/hour you can find others willing to employ you. You can come and dig my garden over for 2/hour if you like!

    Loads of people do these surveys, it's a great way (usually) of making a little bit of money, but when these companies take the wotsit it's appalling.

    I'm not upping the rate though; I know you'll work for 70p/hour and I've already made a good offer at 2

    If you do it well I'll let you paint the fence for 2 too. How easy is that?? You're landing on your feet.

    It's very kind of you though to say I can paint the fence for 2 too, what a lovely person you are

    Despite the joking I do think it is a valid point that none of us should devalue ourselves, the less we think we are worth the less these companies will pay us. Have we really got to the stage where people are willing to work for less than 1 an hour?

    These survey sites enable people to take a survey here and there and maybe make a few pounds in the process. They're especially good for stay at home parents and people out of work, but I agree that companies take advantage of this.

    I finally received a reply from Crowdology to say there are various reasons why this would happen - racing through the survey, not giving complete answers - but I always make sure I take enough time completing them & give complete answers and there was no reason I shouldn't have been credited. It's laughable really, just 35p, but it's the principal. They have my answers and no payout.

    I have been with Crowdology for quite a while with no problems, but then a couple of months ago I completed a long survey - it took me around half an hour - and got to the very end, submitted it, was thanked, and then on the next page Crowdology told me I wasn't eligible! I e-mailed Crowdology with the link for the survey and asked if they could look into it and credit my account with the points. Nothing.

    Then today, I completed another fairly long survey, which was to pay the paltry sum of 35p, got to the end, submitted it and was thanked, only to receive the same message again from Crowdology saying I wasn't eligible! I've e-mailed them again (but I'm not holding my breath). It may only be 35p but there's a principle at stake here when it keeps happening.

    I can't believe how some of these survey sites get away with this. There are some sites that are absolutely great, no problems, or if you have a problem with not receiving points they will add them for you. But Crowdology are getting worse. Since e-mailing them, I've decided I am now going to knock it on the head with them, it's not worth the hassle.

    Swagbucks, Prizerebel, Globaltestmarket. Only those 3 should give you at least 50 a month.

    I agree that they have gotten much worse recently. I regularly spend several minutes doing surveys before it decides to screen me out. I have recently given up on a few of the sites, and I think they might be next.
    As for the other comments, I don't do any survey that pays less than what works out at around 3 per hour. I know that it sounds like a very low amount, but I am realistic. PopulusLive is one of my favourites. I'm expecting another 50 cheque from them any day now, and am already up to 15 again.

    Having the same problem with inbox pounds just now don't do many surveys but it's annoying when you spend 20 minutes and get to the end of the survey just to be told you didn't qualify.

    The most obvious way to earn extra money is either by doing overtime or doing a second job.


    Unfortunately my contract says I'm not allowed to take a second job and overtime doesn't exist where I work, you get paid the same regardless of the number of hours you work.


    I suspect many people who do surveys are in the same boat and need extra money, and the survey companies know this.


    I generally try to avoid long surveys though, because of the boredom factor and its a lot of time you risk wasting if you end up being screened out.

    Has anyone else had problems logging in to the site? I had to say I had forgotten my password but even the new password they sent wasn't accepted. I emailed them and got a reply which said it might be my cookies - although it didn't tell me what to do about that - or that it might be my browser, but I am using windows 10 so it is certainly not out of date. It is 12 days since I sent a second email in response to theirs, and they have not replied.

    I emailed them and gt this back

    Hi Monica

    Thank you for getting in touch to let us know. Our developers are working to fix it and we'll have the site up and running again very soon. You should still be able to take surveys by clicking links from email invitations or through the OpinionApp.

    Many thanks for alerting us to the issue.

    Kind regards

    Problems with surveys in crowdology
    Good evening, I introduce myself, I am Johnny Ramirez, a pleasure to be in the group, I have been verifying all the information and quite interesting.

    But I come wanting to make a query I tried to do some survey with crowdology and as soon as I enter the pre-survey, it disqualifies me automatically without sending me to the section they have to carry out other surveys. Today, January 11, I have had problems with that and I would like to please anyone could help me.

    Another thing is that when I check my mail and the link is direct, that is, I should not do the pre-survey if it grabs directly without problems.

    Greetings.

    I just skip the pre-screening questions and it either leads to a survey or disqualifies. I have had lots of errors with CINT surveys loading the last couple of weeks so maybe they are having some issues.

    Hey Lighthouse17

    Did you manage to access those surveys?
    I am having similar problem with all the CINT survey based panels.
