    If a YouGov survey is an Oracle survey, does this mean it's a prize draw survey only and not for points?

    I got enough points for a 50 cheque from YouGov once, but I never got it. I think the problem was I put the wrong building society account number in, but I tried several different numbers and only one would fit.

    Took me about six months to reach the 5000 points for the fifty pounds pay out. Had a spell where I was getting four or five surveys a week. Any idea how long it takes to pay out I have given my bank details for them to pay our. I know it says thirty days but just wondered if it was quicker?.

    I get about 1 a week. Been doing it for about 15 years I think, cashed in 50 once that took years to save and only ever won a DVD in all that time. Very poor value for your time but its nice to see the news item on TV sometimes quoting its survey source as YouGov

    Not sure Id go as far as poor value for your time. I think the issue isn't so much the money per survey, but that you get so few surveys so that it takes months to get your 50. Also when you do get a survey it is like 25 points.

    When I cashed out in the summer I had my 50 in roughly a week or so. But to give some indication - I cashed out Populous and YouGov at the same time in the summer - and I have already cashed out again with Populous, while with YouGov I am just under 50% of the way there....urgh.

    I quit YouGov about 2 months ago. It'd gone from taking 11 months to reach a 50 payout circa 2012/2013 to 18 months in 2018. For them to subtly drop their rates that much, just ain't worth the bother IMHO. Particularly as they kept pestering me to give my time and opinions for free in various other forms, like extra questions at the end of surveys, joining their 'opinion formers' and business panels. Utter rubbish these days.

    Took me about 10 months for my first 50, and its looking like 10 months for the next. It doesn't bother me the length of time its taking as its still like 5 a month anyway, except it comes in one payment after 10 months

    I've been with YouGov for around 15 years and have had 2 cheques for 50 each. I've now built up enough points to cash out for a third time. I Don't bother with the prize surveys, they take longer than the paid ones and I've never won anything.

    A bit disappointed with I-Say now they've stopped doing 10 Compliments vouchers so have stopped doing those. I used to spend the vouchers in Argos when kitting out my static caravan or replacing small appliances, they were quite handy.

    Joined Qmee in mid-November, cashed out 12 at the end of that month, 21 in December and have another 6 so far this month. Happy to give anyone who PMs me a link (we'll both get a 50p bonus) if interested. Googling for sale items and Christmas gifts has earned me a few pence too.

    Still get occasional Tesco Shopper Thoughts surveys for Clubcard points although I don't spend a lot of money in the store. I used to save up the points then use them to buy Christmas presents online to pick up in store.
    Saved over 20K in 20 years by brewing my own booze.
    Qmee surveys total 39 since November 2018
