My Review of Ipsos i-Say

Minimum Age: 14+ Teen

Rewards: Cash, Amazon Gift Cards, and other Prizes
Redemption Balance: $10 (Gift Card), $15 (Cash)

Worth it

I have been with this survey company for years and yes sometimes you only get entries in to a sweep stakes I never win them but hey I have redeemed for more then 7 or 8 amazon gift cards in the amount of 10 dollars to 20 dollars I am very impressed with this survey company, I recommended it to a lot of my friends who also love this site. Yes there are times when the survey messes up but hey its the internet people nothing is guaranteed to work perfectly plus I do survey diary's were they send me a paper survey and I fill it out and send it back it doesn't get me anything but it didn't hurt me to do it either you participate on a regular bases and its worth it.

pretty good

I've never had any issues that some other people have. I have been able to collect money from them but it does seem to take a longer time than some other places. The interesting thing is that I am occasionally offered products in the mail for review and I have been invited to join more than one discussion panel to earn chances at other rewards. So it feels more interactive and engaging. Now if only I could qualify for more of their surveys and get more than the value of 45-90 cents per survey.

with any survey company it's wise to cash out the money as soon as you reach the min. level and put it in your own bank account. I read enough about people having their "points" or money disappear for many different reasons... I like this survey panel. The pay isn't super great but they do offer some steady work and since I completed the profile questions, I qualify for many of the surveys offered. I always get paid as promised either in my pay pal or with an amazon gift card.. Their surveys are interesting, the pay is very predictable, I get several full size test products to try for my time. I think that it's one of the better ones out there

I recently joined Ipsos with the promise of rewards. Well despite accruing enough points to purchase an Amazon £10 gift voucher I was not sent it. Despite 3 emails to the company (no-one has bothered to respond despite the company's claim to get back to customers within 2 working days, I am very dissatisfied with their service. Has anyone else had similar experiences? Or can anyone give me advice how to proceed further?

I've been a member of this site for several years. They weren't my favorite site since sometimes I would spend up to 20 minutes answering questions only to be told (after they had all my info and answers) that I wasn't "eligible" for the survey. Well, I noticed recently that I hadn't received any surveys from them in a while so I tried to log into my account and could not. I emailed them about it and they said I had asked to be unsubscribed. I did not. They said that since it had been more than 45 days they deleted all my information and I lost all my points. They also said I could never resubscribe - ever. Guess I got on their bad list for some reason! :)

In early 2010 I was subscribed and received surveys about once a week. I had a membership through October and I was starting to build a nice number of points. Then, I went on vacation and somehow was "unsubscribed" while I had no access to the internet. They wouldn't reactivate my account because it is against their "policy". This was their error and they took no accountability for it.

I had been with Ipsos for a couple of years now. Well during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday I noticed that I wasn't getting any surveys in my email. I went to the site to check on my points and see if there were any surveys there. There wasn't and what with being busy with the holidays I didn't go back to check until after New Years. When I tried to log in to my account it said that my account had been deactivated. I had saved enough points to redeem for $250 so I was not happy that I had my account deactivated. I contacted them and they are trying to claim that I opted out of my account in November. Well I know that I never did and now all of my points are lost. Why would I have opted out without redeeming $250 worth of points? I've read that this has happened to other people as well. Beware of suddenly getting kicked out if you save up too many points. Update: I just recently got things cleared up with Ipsos. It took a few emails back and forth, but my account was restored and my points reinstated. They claim that either I unsubscribed from the site or just stopped answering surveys. I know that I didn't so that was not the case. So I'm not sure what happened. I'm glad my points have been reinstated, but I am leery that something like this will happen again, so I will no longer be letting my points build up so much.

I like Ipsos. They've been upgraded for the better, it seems, and overall I like their format. They offer an average of 45 or 90 points per survey, and 5 points if you are disqualified. I've made $110 so far with them in just under a year and a half, and occasionally I'll receive product tests, including some hair product and juice! The surveys are fair, to the point, and don't repeat the same questions in the scanner, which is nice. The only issue I have is receiving my Loyalty Points. For every certain number of surveys that are marked 'Completed,' you are to receive a certain number of points, generally before the month is over. I've had to email them about this every two months, at least, and they tried to tell me the number I had marked as 'completed' and the number they had down for me were two entirely different values. I did receive my points, however, in just a few days, since I was right to begin with! Aside from this, customer service is quick.

I've been with them for about 6 months, taking about every survey that was sent to me. Sometimes you find out you don't qualify for a survey 20 minutes into it! I kept checking my account to see if I had accumulated any points. Barely anything! I have $2.40 in my account, which can't even buy the cheapest reward. What a waste of hours and hours of my time.

I am a member of I-say panel for more than two years. Initially , when i Joined the panel , I got surveys frequently , fairly rewarding too. Recently, something has gone wrong with this panel and i am surprised to see me getting disqualified for all of its surveys . Earlier it used to be one of the best sites in its quality and uniqueness of surveys and now it has degraded a lot . By accumulating 1100 points , one can redeem it for gift cards but now it is a pain to reach this target. If there is plenty of time, one can attend their surveys which are normally very harder to get qualified and earn the appreciation points (5 points) . I don't find this site useful now and i am going to stop taking their surveys. One of their best to mention is its customer support as they respond as quick as possible in a very impressive way.

I have received a LOT of survey invitations from this company- often 5 a day. Unfortunately, they do not prescreen well enough, and I end up disqualifying from most. The ones that I do qualify for tend to be low rewards. For instance, a 20 minute survey usually gives 45 points ($0.45 USD). I did receive ONE survey which actually paid 1100 points ($11.00) all by itself, which was nice. But as I said, most surveys have been very low point values. They do give rewards on a tiered system based on how many surveys you complete in a year. In my case, I have completed 50 surveys, so I received a total of 375 bonus points, which equals $3.75. (25 points after 5 surveys, plus 50 points after 10, plus 100 points after 25 surveys, plus 200 points after 50 surveys). Unfortunately, this bonus survey count resets at the end of each calendar year, so you start over from the beginning. They used to have additional loyalty rewards (such as a reward for every year that you stayed with the company), but they have discontinued these. I have earned $50 total since joining in January 2011... so, about $5 per month. Not great, especially considering I have completed over 50 surveys (and disqualified from at least twice that number) in that time. Adding in bonuses and everything, I earned less than $1 per survey completed. And if you figure the amount of time spent, (including disqualifications), it averages considerably less than minimum wage. I am certain that I have spent more than 5 hours a month on their site, so that would end up being a dollar an hour. You *are* able to cash out for a variety of things. I have opted for Amazon.com gift cards. This usually takes at least 4-6 weeks to process. Other options include having a check mailed to you, which is supposed to take longer. Summary: They do pay, but not very highly. Overall, not the best use of time. I would not recommend, and will probably be cancelling my account after I reach the next payout threshold. On the other hand, if you are in one of their target demographics and receive a lot of high paying surveys that you do qualify for, it might work for you.

I joined Ipsos at the beginning of this month and have a total of 1980 points. They have plenty of surveys to take daily. I get e-mails every time a new survey is available. 100 points equals $1.00. Most surveys I get are 90 points for around 20 minutes which isn’t that great of pay for my time, but the number of surveys I get a day are plenty so those 90 points add up quick. I usually can’t get to their surveys right away and I have noticed that usually their surveys stay open for about 1-3 days. Also most of their surveys don’t time out, so I take breaks while doing their surveys. The horrid OTX surveys are on this site too, but Ipsos uses OTX as a screening process. If I qualify then I am brought back to Ipsos site to take the survey. The points are usually added automatically when I complete a survey, but occasionally some survey points are added a few days later. When I don’t qualify for a survey 5 points are added to my account. I get surveys about the various products I buy, ranging from food to make-up to body wash. When it’s time to cash out they have gift cards for Amazon and American Express starting at $10. They also have cash (sent as a check) that starts at $15. You can cash in your points to give to a charity too. I haven’t cashed out yet but on their website it’s say it takes 5-8 weeks to receive your money, and this is the only negative I have about this site. Of all the survey companies I am a part of, Ipsos is the longest wait by far. But this one negative is balanced by the positives. The pros are alerting me when there are new surveys, a decent window of time to take the surveys, frequent number of surveys to take, rarely getting disqualified, and having the survey points added to your account within a few days. I would definitely recommend Ipsos.

I have been with Ipsos i-Say for a number of years. They have always been honest and fair and don't overload me with surveys. Anytime I need a support person regarding surveys or any problem I encounter, they are always there to assist me whether online or on the telephone. I would recommend this research company to anyone who is interested in looking for a company to work surveys online. I am sometimes asked to test a product at home and that is just as enjoyable. I rate this company on a higher rating.

I have been with them for a little over the year now, and I am PLEASED! I have yet to cash out as I am saving for the big one. Even if I don't qualify for a survey I still get points which is a bonus. I love playing their poll predictor game, you get points depending on how close to the answer, and you can use these points to enter different draws. Very HAPPY, HIGHLY recommended!

If you unsubscribe, they will never let you return to the site. After 45 days, they deactivate your account and won't let you return and resubscribe. What if I wanted to come back to do surveys? And they have so much control over OTHER panelist sites so it locks more than one site when you leave this one. I suppose I'll be finding a new more RELIABLE survey site. And they told me they were "sorry" for the inconvenience. I'm sorry to them for losing a customer.

I have been a member for a couple years now, I don't always qualify for the surveys but they always reward 5 points for the few minutes it takes to enter my demographic info. I've always cashed out my points, never done the gift card thing and it usually takes about 3 weeks to receive my check in the mail. I've done product testing at home. And have gotten huge points for qualifying for certain surveys, I had one early on that was an on-going survey run independently by a pharmaceutical company where I was originally screened by Ipsos. I think it gives back what you are willing to put into it. Many of the surveys are only open for a certain time period so it helps to save the emails and sit down to go through them a day or so after receiving the email. Or you can log into your account to see what you have open.

They are in my top 3 survey sites. I have been with Ipsos since April 2011 and have to say that of all the survey sites Ipsos offers the most frequent surveys. Even when you don't qualify for one they will sometimes credit you 5 points. Their points range between 45 and 150 per survey. It does take a while to accumulate enough reward points to cash out. Mininum1000 points for gift cards (amazon or american express) and minimum 1500 points for $15 check. They have sweepstakes and poll predictor game (which offers points for great gift draws). If you have the time and patience this survey site is great! Surveys are interesting and are not too long. If you have any problems with the surveys or questions the support is quick to explain and want to help. Kim

This site... my friends.. is absolutely amazing. I joined a little over a year ago and have cashed out 25 dollars cash, 50 dollars in amazon gift cards... and that is me not even being an active member for the whole time. Let me tell you: The surveys are great. I almost always qualify for them. They have a lot of interactive surveys.. you know... not your plain old pages and pages of boring questions. They also have a great game after the survey called Poll Predictor where you guess what percentage of men, women, or both has done whatever they ask. The closer you are to the answer the more points you get to put into a drawing to win prizes. I have never won one of those sweepstakes prizes but they do have a winning area on their site to see who one each time. Even the user interface on their site is great. Really neat looking. Anyways.. this is by far one of my favorite survey companies.. and I would recommend anyone to give it a try.

Was I surprised! After belonging to Ipsos i-Say for a relatively short time, I discovered I had accumulated enough points to get a ten dollar amazon gift card! I hadn't expected them to add up so quickly! Even after cashing out I still had points left over toward my next reward. I love getting Amazon gift cards because I do almost all my shopping there, so this, for me, is a great reward. If you get your points a bit higher you can get cash as well. I get surveys frequently enough and in general, the points are high enough for each completed survey. Sometimes they aren't; usually they are. And, if you don't qualify, you still get points for trying! And you get to play "poll predictor" - although I've never won anything and don't know anyone here who has, it's still a fun challenge. The only area of concern for me was when I cashed out, it took a little while to find out what was going on with the gift certificate - I finally contacted them - and it still took several days before getting a short response. The response was right to the point and answered my question so I can't complain. I got the gift code for the ten dollars about three weeks after cashing out. At my age, and because my children are adults, I often don't qualify for a lot of surveys. Most places want people with children - so it's nice to find a place where I do qualify enough to cash out quickly. I have "liked" this one on facebook, and recommend it to my friends.

I have been a member of Ipsos for about 10 months and I have been very pleased. The frequency of surveys is among the best, usually receiving 3 per day on average. Most surveys pay out either 45 (45 cents) points or 90 but you do get a few for a 150. The surveys are very reasonable in length most are in the 20 minute range. Ipsos offers many different reward options such as gift cards and cash in the form of a check. The minimum cash out is $15 or 1500 points and checks usually take 3 weeks to arrive. The account page is very well designed, easy to use, tracks your surveys very thoroughly. For all those looking for a steady paying site with great reward options, then Ipsos is a must join.

I-say panel is one of the legitimate survey sites but the frequency of surveys are not that great, their rewards are good though. I-say care about their members and their support is very much appreciable. It is fun to take their unique interactive surveys and one other thing is it takes a month to get paid when requested. It is worth to be a member along with other sites.

I've been a member about 18 months. I really didn't understand how it worked at first, but then again, I think it has been revamped in the past few months. I have cashed out two $10 Amazon cards, and am on my way to a third one. All these points have been accumlated in the past 6 months. As they say right on the website YOU WILL NOT GET RICH DOING THESE SURVEYS. However, as someone who enjoys filling out onlines surveys, getting paid with Amazon gift cards makes it worth my while. Also, I wrote to customer service asking what I was accumulating points FOR, and they very kindly pointed me to the rewards page and explained it to me. I am an "older" person, so I don't always pick up on things, but I was impressed with their customer service. Lastly, as someone else stated, its nice to get some points even if you don't qualify for the survey. Thanks.

Ive been a member for a couple of years and I dont like how they say you get 90 points to take a survey then right in the middle after they get all of your information they say that a lot of people with the same background as yours has responded so you dont qualify for the remainder of the survey but they do give you some kind of points .If you look in the site you will see that they also have cards for over $100.00 and up ,do you know how long it will take you just to get that 1,000.00 card ? Im not going to try to add it up because they know that no one is going to reach that level to get those cards. It a shame how they make it sound so good then you sign up and never get really the amount that you wish to get.And they dont send you that many invites for surveys .Good Luck everyone I think that Im going to cash out when I reach the $25.00 Im at 1,895 points and it took me 2 years to get to this point and I do take all of there surveys.This is not a good thing I will stick with MyPoints, Opinion Outpost etc. If you havent check out these atleast you get gift cards and cash and it doesnt take that long for your points to add up .Ive also been with these 2 for a couple of years and Ive cash out many times and it doesnt take that long for them to send you your money also try Send Earnings and Inbox but just take the survey everyday and do only the free offer . Thanks a lot Isay my time is wasted on this one

I just saw think link on their member's facebook page - they gave away a car and apparently this is the third time they've done something like this! Thought I would share the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wd61JPdj9pA They seem to have been making a lot of changes to their website and their points system lately. I just found out that they now offer Amazon and charity donations as rewards. Seems pretty cool. They also sent me a survey recently where they were asking what kind of rewards I wanted and so far it looks like they are listening!

April 14, 2010

Ipsos sends out a handful of survey invites each month, and I find that I qualify and complete a little less than half of them, which I consider to be a very good percentage in comparison to many other survey sites. Additionally, they have the added incentives of offering a small amount of points for attempting many invites and not qualifying, as well as a fun Poll Predictor game at the end of each survey where you can win sweepstakes entries for larger prizes. All in all, you get at least a little something for your efforts, even if you don't make it through a survey. I joined Ipsos right when they took the site offline for the new design, so I waited patiently over the last few months to see my current point balance and new rewards claims. Now that the site is up, I'm very happy with the changes - and all of my points in the meantime had been transferred over with no problems. I'm just a few points away from cashing out, and I'm looking forward to that next survey! The only slight complaint I can state is the lack of a Pay-Pal option, but they have several other ways to redeem your points by either check or pre-paid American Express cards, so there are a few options to choose from.

I am very disappointment about ipsos.I joined the survey site in 2009.At the beginning they sent me serveral surveys a week,I easily reached the payment requirement and cash out with amazon gc(I think they dont use amazon gc now).After i requested the payment they never sent a new survey invite to me just like i was not a member.I sent email for support and no response.I dont know what happened but it is not my fault. They paid low rates for surveys and bad support.It is not a good site for me.
