Many are not worth the effort …

I partake in a number of internet surveys. I do it for gain, not for “A chance to influence …”No, sheer YouGovmonetary gain or for points/credits that I can convert into money or goods that I want/like. I subscribe to around four or five survey sites, but the most profitable ones are YouGov and Maximiles. YouGov gives you Maximilespoints in the range of 25 to 100 depending on the length of the survey, and once you hit 5000 you can redeem the sum of £50.00. Maximiles has the more usual approach of giving you points for every completed survey.

The main difference between YouGov and Maximiles is that you are never screened out of a YouGov survey. If you get an invite for a YouGov survey, you will get the points. It not always the case with Maximiles and recently they seem to be having an issue the closing out of completed survey. They say they are working on a fix, but it does seem to be taking a long time.

To date. I have had £100.00 from YouGov and a £28.00 bottle of Hendricks Gin from Maximiles. So bad for 20 or so minutes two or three times a week.

I also subscribe to Panel Opinion, GlobalTestMarket and panelbase.net but these tend to be more ‘miss’ than ‘hit’ when it comes to eligible surveys, so I tend not to bother with them too much.

One thought on “Many are not worth the effort …

  1. I started with panelbase a few months ago and got fed up with all the emails, then when part way through get the survey screen of death saying I am not part of the demographic they want, it frustrates me. My partner does all kinds and usually, at the end of the year, he has about £150 of vouchers. I do shop and scan with Neilsen and a TV one connected to an old android phone (I use iPhones) as it is only an android app, and it monitors what we watch on the two sky boxes, and I get £5 amazon voucher every 4 weeks. I used to do a few others, but in the end, the effort was far too much for so little.
