    Onepoll 39.90 and no surveys for days!! 28th Nov 13 at 9:52 AM
    Hi All,

    Just a quickie question, my Onepoll balance is at 39.90 just 10p away from a pay out. But I haven't had a survey for days - Prior to reaching this balance I was getting at least a couple a day and on the day I reached the 39.90 there was still surveys to complete but suddenly dissappeared?

    Anyone else experience this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Clicked on the first one - "Sorry, it seems this survey isn't quite for you". Despite not even answering a single screening question. Tried the second one - ditto.

    Really ? I often get them after I've answered one or 2 screening questions, which is fair enough. But I've never before had it the moment I click on the survey. That's why it struck me as suspicious.

    Same for me.
    However, at about 02:00 this morning (I was on nights) I managed to complete a survey that took me past 40. And I've had 6 or 7 surveys since.

    How long did it take you to get to the 40 payout?

    I'm currently on 14.90 and I've been doing it since July. It's sooooo slow!

    Should get my payout in about September i reckon

    Clearly the 39.90 scenario is a common occurrence as currently facing it for the last two weeks. Does anyone know if the market research body takes action against such unreliable rogues as not sure how to take this further. All surveys companies have same policy but this one appears to be real jokers

    Just cashed out my second 40. They have topped up my account both times by 10p a few days after I reach 39.90

    Just had a emal that OnePoll are reducing the redemption limit from 40 down to 25 - apparently you have to reach 40 this time but then after that it becomes 25

    I've been with One Poll a few years now. Whilst the surveys have always slowed down somewhat when getting closer to payout, I've never been stuck on 39.90 with no surveys for weeks.


    However yesterday I was on 39.70 and had several available surveys. Did a couple to bring my total to 39.90, but then the rest all screened me out without asking a single question.

    No, this isn't the norm.

    First, the website was down for over a day (Fri/Sat?). Then, when a few polls were online, when I clicked each one, I was told 'This one's not for you', like Switzerland said above.

    Today, I can complete the first question of each of the two polls available, then it goes back to the overview page. Both polls are still there, no points have been credited.

    Keep away for a day or two, you'll just be wasting your time.

    Edit: After having another quick look, I found that the surveys are suddenly now working (even the ones that weren't working ten minutes earlier) and I have reached the 40 milestone. No idea what's going on with these crazy people

    It always annoys me how long it takes them to pay out also.

    Nothing would surprise me with this lot. I can't see any of the surveys being useful to anyone - they all appear to be written by schoolchildren.

    I cash out about half a dozen times a year and keep expecting the whole shower to close down.

    I'm with lots of survey sites, but with Harris/Hi-epanel I've had the same amount of points for a long time and had no surveys for ages.

    In the last couple of days I've had trouble logging in to Harris, and I've just got an e-mail saying my account was cancelled because they never sent me any surveys in the last 12 months.
