    Survey Stashing: OnePoll hints & tips 12th May 09 at 1:01 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


    OnePoll


    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.

    I've been on onepoll for a few months and I only have £5.
    Never won an amazon voucher although done loads of surveys for them??
  • honeyD
    Ive been with Onepoll for well over a year now. I have cashed out once, which was pretty quick to get to £40 but this time it is taking forever! I have been in the £30+ mark for months and seems like it will be next year before I get from £36 to £40.
    Most of the surveys these days are amazon vouchers or cash prizes but Ive never won any of them. It really is disappointing because Onepoll was one I recommended to others because the money was gained so fast and now its just as bad as Ciao.
    Hope it picks back up soon or Im going to lose patience after I cash out.

    Hi all

    Just had a read of this thread, and with the exception of someone winning cheques and an phone, the people generallly seem to feel disgruntled and disappointment. £40 for free is £40 for free, but if people have been doing this for nearly a year (in some cases) and still haven't reached the £40 mark, 1) this sounds dodgy, as they know perfectly well the minimum cashout mark of £40, so conveniently keep you under that, so you're actually giving opinions for free, and 2) if this is not the case, then the amount of time it takes to accrue £40 doesn't seem worth it compared to some of the other free money making ideas on this site. How long does the process actually take? "months" isn't an accurate timeframe, as is that a few hours spent everyday for months? 2-5mins a day every other days for a few months?

    I guess the main question is, how many hours do you need to put into this for the £40, and is it worth it? Are any of the other similar sites better?

    Thanks guys

    All,

    OnePoll seems to have 'disappeared'.

    A message appears when you log in as:

    "We are currently developing our site and you will be able to answer surveys for cash very soon.
    Once we are ready, we will send you an e-mail and you will be able to come back, log on and start giving your opinion on a wide range of topics in return for cash.
    We look forward to working with you very soon!
    Regards,
    The OnePoll Team."

    I have not been able to enter the site since the 5th November.

    Has anyone else experienced this? I've saved up £19.10 so far and have a horrible feeling I've been conned.....

    That's strange, it's still working fine for me! Hmm. Are you able to get into the 'contact' section and email them?
  • Stooz_Master
    Dear AprilLady,

    Many thanks for your advice - I have just found what the problem was. When logging into onepoll.com it was re-routing me to onepoll.us for whatever reason.

    Just tried onepoll.com/join and I'm now back in and on the English site.

    Thanks!

    Ah well I've only just joined so am hoping it's one of those things that get sorted quickly. But I'd be screaming too if I was sooo close to the mark.

    I've been on there for well over 12 months and I'm on £15. If I eventually get to £40, I'll be leaving. Yes, it's only ten minutes a day but some of the surveys are awkward and I've never won anything.
  • miametro
    i *just* reached my £40 payout. so happy i've been logging in 5 or 6 times a day as the surveys seem to fill up faily fast, it's been yeilding positive results

    Over the last few days, there's been about 3 15p surveys, but usually they're 5p or 10p.
  • n1knak
    definately definately worth downloading the app on iphone!!!
    i earnt 3x 50p when i downloaded it yesterday and got 2x £1.50 surveys on there this morning. the best part it is they were all about 6 very easy questions long! took about 30seconds each.
    the money has shown straight away in my account aswell so it does work

    even if you dont have an iphone ask a friend if you can borrow theres for a few minutes! definately worth it

    Yes I'd second that, but after the first flush of surveys it's now back to 10p surveys on the iPhone and main site. You get different ones on each site.
  • steveninthesun
    A con?
    Is onepoll a con?

    NO
    If you constantly visit the website then you'll get a regular supply of surveys

    YES
    If you recommend a friend, you do not receive bonus payments when they join or reach certain amounts. Onepoll won't reply to e-mails either.

    VERDICT
    It's probably the best way to make an easy £40 around. It takes time. But even if it takes a year, it's more than you'll probably get in interest from all your bank accounts put together!

    I´ve now been at this for TWO YEARS and still not reached payout. There used to be lots of surveys, but the last fiver or so has been painfully slow. I have all of 55p to go, but despair of ever reaching payout. I am suspicious that in spite of checking the site several times a day, for several months I nearly always get ´there are no surveys available to you´ (my italics).

    And no, Onepoll do not answer emails. Very poor.
  • twinklekat
    I'm getting about 1 survey per day on my iPhone and a couple by logging into the site... So it'll take about a year to get to the payout threshold. It doesn't seem as great as some of the other survey sites, but they are quick and frequent so can't complain there.
    Dribbling my way to £11k... so far £653.69/£11000
