I really like this company. I admit, I sometimes wish the points were higher for time spent, but whenever I've requested a reward it's been received within the stated timeframe, and anytime I've emailed a question I've received a timely response actually addressing my stated question directly - which I can't say about most paid for customer service companies, never mind reward based survey groups. There surveys are fun enough and sensible enough to spend the time. I recommend them to anyone who has the time to answer some questions in exchange for what amounts to some discounted coffee, magazines/ books or way to contribute to a charity etc.

Not the highest quality of surveys (mostly identification of current celebrities or cartoon characters recently, with a chance to give your opinion of them), but fun. I realize the older I get, the less likely I am to know the younger 'celebrities,' but it's still fun chiming in that I know the older ones! Surveys are infrequent, and a $5 PayPal deposit takes a month(!), as do the Amazon e-gift cards. I do them when I get them, and s-l-o-w-l-y amount cash.

The only down side is that they only send you about 3 surveys a month. Each survey is worth about $.90 and takes less than 10 minutes, usually bout 5. These surveys are fairly enjoyable and the reward are very good, something that everyone will want, including Paypal.

I only have a few issues with this site. first, the surveys seem to be exactly the same each time, and i find myself getting bored with them whereas on other sites i enjoy them. Second, i do not know if there is a place on the site to see if you have any surveys waiting, but if there is i can't find it. i just wait for them to email me, which they do about once every two weeks, this also bothers me since i'd rather answer more surveys than less. but on the plus side, when i do answer surveys they give me many points and it has a low cash out value so you can get your money quickly. i got a target gift card from them for $5, and once i requested it, the card arrived within a few days, which i really like. overall a pretty good site, with only a couple issues.

I joined E-Poll about 2 years ago. The surveys are pretty interesting but lack in variety of topics. Since I joined most of the surveys have been about my opinion about varies celebrities and my opinion about different tv shows. The lack of variety makes me not want to take the survey at times. My other concern is with recieving prizes. Around the end of July this year I applied for a prize. I still have not recieved it because they are supposed to send it by mail. Overall I think E Pol is pretty good with some flaws.

I've been a member of E-poll for at least 3 years and I love the rewards, and the frequency of surveys, and they are all good ones too. No "offers" to complete- just real surveys for real rewards. It's easy to get the minimum payout in a few months, not a year like some sites.

If you are into movies and tv shows then you got to join this panel. E-poll mainly sends entertainment surveys that ask you identify movies, tv shows, and the characters in them, and how well you like them. Plus every now and then they send children surveys that allow my five year old daughter to participate in, which is kind of fun for the both of us. Points are pretty standard, 500 to 100 points for each survey completed. That is roughly $0.75 to $1.50 for about 10 to 15 minutes of your time. Not a fortune, but it does add up, and the points show up in your account balance right away. They offer lots of options for redeeming your points, but I got the PayPal route, and redeem for cash. 6750 points = $10. All in all, I think this is a great survey panel.

I highly recommend e-poll surveys! I've been a member for quite some time now and I absolutely love it. I've never had any problem with them and their surveys are easy and plentiful. Not to mention they have a monthly cash draawing and last month I won $250! My new found wealth bought me a small shopping spree ;) But anyways sign up e-poll it's a great way for teens to make money$!

I am Epoll user since 2009, I have got rewards for just taking easy surveys from epoll surveys. Today i have withdrawn $15 PayPal.

I have not tried that many survey sites as of late, but E-poll is okay. I have not had any similar experiences like getting no surveys like other people said. I have only been signed up for a day and I have already received two surveys! The pay toll might not be very high, but every penny counts these days!
March 28, 2011
I have not been an E-Poll member for long, but the surveys are fun and easy. Im not getting lots of money from it but its still money! Over all i think its great.
March 24, 2011
you get like no money, especially compared to ''my view'' they NEVER send surveys. dumb, dont go on it. go on ''my view''

E-Poll surveys are really very fun! Unlike a lot of the other companies, I actually enjoy taking their surveys, and it doesn't hurt that they have great rewards (gift certificates or $$ via paypal). They have been very prompt about sending the rewards. Overall, great experience.
February 23, 2011

Epoll is a survey site that I have been a member of for the past 4 years. I enjoy doing their surveys because they pertain to the entertainment industry. They also offer special interactive surveys where they will ask individuals to watch a TV show at a certain time and ask for feedback on the program. the next day. Epoll sends surveys on average about once a month. More frequent surveys would be nice, as the ability to earn reward points is limited. I have cashed out several times however. One nice addition to epoll in the past year is the use of paypal for those who wish to earn cash rewards. The only complaint I have about them other than the infequency of the surveys is that they are slow to pay. It usually takes several weeks to cash out once the awards are earned. Overall I enjoy epoll however, and would recommend it as a survey site.

I have been a member of E Poll for a number of years. It is not a site to get rich from the surveys but the surveys are a bit different than nost survey sites. They tend to be more fun. Usually you will get a set of pictures of people to look at and they ask if you recognize them. If you do they ask to check the words that describe that person. Most of the people I do not recognize. It is fun to think of how you think of the people you do recognize. They ask how much you like or dislike the person. They are very easy surveys and not at all confusing. They donot send surveys as often as I would like. You will not make a lot of money from them but it is more fun to do them. They are very slow in sending the rewards. You usally get 500 points for each survey and need 3500 to get $5 in pay pal. If you are looking for a change of pace survey, one for fun with a small reward this is a good one.

I joined E-poll on July this year and cash out $15 amazon gift card.They send out surveys are easy to take,mostly about media and entertainment.They provide 100-1200 points per survey completed but sometimes provide drawing entry surveys as well.I get about surveys twice a week.
It takes a long time to get to the point of cash out.The rewards store has many different payment options,Donations,Starbucks card,Amazon gift code,Blockbuster gift card,Paypal and so on.The $5 gift card exchange 3500 points.If you have more points,you save more points on your next cashout.For example 3500points=$5,6750points=$10,9750points=$15,up to 17250points=$30.
Most survyes are 15 minutes and up to 60 minutes long.Give your free time to take the long survey and enjoy the video clip.If you don't like it,don't take it.
Lastly Happy New Year to all the reviwers and moderators!

I've been a member for just a few months but I like taking E-Poll surveys. They tend to be the most interesting surveys I recieve from any of the companies I belong too.
My only real complaint is that they only send me one or two surveys a month. Meaning it takes me forever to get the points needed to cash in.
On the upside you can get $5 gift cards for 3500. Which seems like alot but for me that was about 8 surveys.
And they have gift cards for Starbucks, Target, Amazon and Paypal.
Overall you won't get rich, but really considering how often they send surveys this is an interesting and easy site to belong to.

I think this is a decent and legitimate survey panel. They really don't send out enough surveys but it seems like I've actually qualified for all the ones they sent me. It seems like you're already supposed to be prequalified before you take it or something like that.
September 19, 2010
All the problem they have is few surveys and most of them are repeated, but is easy to get the 3500 points to get 5 to your paypal account or get other prices you choose. I've been there for over a year now almost two, is not a lot of money but when you do many other online money making sites it certainly add some. This is a legit site, I always been paid bye them. Qualifying for a survey is not that hard if you are clever and try to guess the profile they need. The key is to add as many categories to your profiler survey as you can so you can get more of them. It take around a month to get your payment.

i dont like epoll because takes to long to receives surveys
August 5, 2010
It's easy to forget you're a member of E-poll, as the surveys are so infrequent. I joined about eight months ago, and have only received 13 invitation. However, I've qualified and completed seven of those invites, so my ratio of completions for this panel is relatively high. The incentives are always adequate for the time spent. So while a very slow earner (I'm only now approaching the cash-out threshold), this panel is another good one to put on your "small, but steady" list of small - but worthwhile - survey companies.

Although i have only earned $60 from Epoll over the past two years, it's partly my fault due to having a separate email for my PayPal from my primary survey invitation email. I just don't check it often enough, but if I did I am certain that Epoll would rank much higher than #27 out of my Top 30 Survey Sites. Their surveys are often quite long, but fairly well compensated with most surveys earning 500 (71 cents), 750 ($1.06) or 1000 ($1.42) points, where 3500 points equals a $5 PayPal ($0.014 cents per point). I would pass on the occasional 100 (14 cents) and 150 (21 cents) point surveys as well as the surveys for a sweepstakes entry.
Other rewards available include Amazon gift cards, $5 Target Gift Cards, Free DVD or VHS Rental Blockbuster Gift Card, $5 Re-Loadable Starbucks Card, $5 Dunkin Donuts Gift Certificate and $5 Darden Restaurants Gift Card (Olive Garden, Red Lobster, etc.).

E-poll's surveys are interesting (usually have to do with entertainment). The only qualm I have with them is their surveys are not too frequent so it takes a while to accumulate enough rewards to redeem. I would definitely recommend the site though.
April 4, 2010
Yes, you get a lot TV surveys here, which is cool. But I get 1 survey every 1-2 surveys a month, and then it takes 8 weeks to get a $5.00 Amazon gift card. My 2009 earnings: $10.00.
March 15, 2010
i really like the surveys but i really wish that i could take one every day or at least week but other than that its a good site.
March 11, 2010
I joined the panel about one year ago and earned 50$ from it.They don't send surveys frequently and most surveys worth 500-1000 points.I hate the 1000 points survey because it often ask me to watch a TV online(45-60 minutes long).I dont want to wast my time on it to earn only 1.5$.For other surveys type,Just OK!
Anyway you cant earn lots of money from e-poll,But it still funs to people.
March 4, 2010
I joined E-Poll about 4 months ago and some far, I have earned $15. They pay out rewards in PayPal which usually takes about a month to receive after making the cash-out request as they only verify your surveys once you request a cash-out. The also offer an array of other prizes such as gift cards to Amazon, restaurants, Blockbuster, etc. The surveys are always very well laid out and very brief. The topics are fun and relevant. Frequency is the major draw back to E-Poll as I only receive about 2 or 3 per month. As a member, you will spend minimal time with E-Poll but the rewards will make it time well spent.

I signed up for the Survey Panel late last night and I have already received a survey! Their terms do not allow me to discuss what was in the survey specifically, however the survey asked questions about different brand names. Setup took a while, however results are good. My first survey game me 500 Points and took me about 25 Minutes. 5 dollar gift cards start at 3500 points or about 7 quizzes. 10 Dollar cards are discounted at 6750 Points and $15 Cards at 9750. The site is straightforward and signing up was a breeze. However the low point value of the Surveys was disappointing.

This is one of my favorites. This survey site has a lot to do with entertainment. If you enjoy watching tv, this is a good one to do. You are asked to watch new and upcoming tv shows, which I really enjoy. A lot of surveys ask if you have heard or seen tv channels as well as the shows. Sometimes they send a CD in snail mail (this only happened to me twice) and there was several episodes of a new tv show. I love watching these new shows, and best part is I get 'paid' to do so!
