Has Anyone Else Noticed a Lack of Surveys This Week?

Ask a Question

I have noticed this week that there seems to be a lack of surveys. Has anyone else noticed this?

I haven't had any surveys from VO in 4 days, despite checking regularly throughout the day. I haven't had any from Opinion Outpost for 2 days. I've had a few from Nectar Canvass but there definitely seems to be less of them. I'm assuming it's because there are more people doing surveys just now or perhaps there is just less surveys.

I've never gone 4 days without a survey from VO before.

I was wondering if I was the only one who had noticed this or if others were getting less surveys too?

I noticed the same with VO and surveybods. I never heard of nectar canvass, is it a good one?

GSM Nectar canvass is pretty much the same as VO but you get Nectar points for surveys instead. I like it, it's been the best one for me the last few days

MrsCraig is it the same company? VO and nectar? The format of the page is the same.

GSM no, Nectar is a separate company but the VO and Nectar canvass websites are run by the same company which is why they are the same. Opinion Outpost is also run by the same company so its website looks exactly the same.

I've had quite a few opportunities from VO, though didn't make it to the end of most of them. Prior to this week they have been very sparse. I've had a steady supply from Panelbase and YouGov. Maybe they're letting us oldies catch up.

I'm on quite a few different survey sites, and they've all been pretty quiet throughout January and February, less surveys than usual. January is usually a bit quiet for surveys, but then February comes and it starts picking up. Not this year though, there just aren't enough surveys around at the moment.

MrsCraig I usually enjoy taking surveys but I'm starting to find it frustrating now, as you often end up going round in circles while they try to find you a survey, answering the same screening questions over and over. Or you get an email saying there's a survey, but when you click on it it tells you there are no surveys available.

angelik yes, I've been feeling like that too. I often check the sites throughout the day, whether I've had an email or not but everytime I've clicked the emails recently it tells me there aren't any! Definitely getting annoying.

For the the only page that never disappoints me is TRP surveys. It takes a minute to fill out the surveys and you have £5 every 6 weeks

Hey if you enjoy surveys, you may enjoy writing reviews for LD points. Not many people know it exists:

> https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/reviews/create

Search for a retailer such as Amazon, Tesco, Sainsbury's, and write a quick review. You can earn between 20-100 points per review.

Tom I've written a few reviews before. I love the review section, really easy to use, although I did forget about it for a while there until I saw it on the broadcast. I wrote some reviews this morning actually.

Imnotcheap I've noticed it when I've gone on throughout the day. I tend to do them in the morning when my son watches cartoons, then when countdown is on as he loves that show and then in the evenings if I have time. There has been fewer since Christmas but I've really noticed it the last week. I've been busy with other things too, I've probably noticed it more as I've got a long list of Amazon items I want to buy with my survey earnings!

I‘ve definitely had less this last week. Normally February is pretty decent for me but there’s been less than usual for sure for me. I’m hoping it’ll pick up again soon.

MrsCraig It could be, maybe they’re doing some kind of upgrades behind the scenes? I know another site I’m on had some server outages too recently so maybe their server had the same issue, if they’re using the same provider?

I have found that nectar canvass is actually not worth it - you are doing a 15-20 minute survey and only getting 40-60 points (20-40p!), you are better off joining LifePoints much worth your time!

lovelyjubblymum I don't like lifepoints. I've used them before and I don't find that you get that much from them for your time. Ipsos I-say hasn't been that bad for me recently survey wise, it's VO that has been awful, no surveys for 10 days now.
