Do You Get Dishearten with Surveys Disqualifications?

Ask a Question

Do you get dishearten with online surveys disqualifications?

I am trying to save up Amazons vouchers in order to supplements the upcoming Christmas and Birthday gift for my kids.

Although online surveys proofed to help me a little I can't help from getting dishearten from time to time with constant disqualifications!

I don't mind if I am refused based on a short check but I mean the once that you spend 10-15 minutes and yet you get disqualifications or something goes wrong with the survey and you completely wasted your time.

Did anyone else found that challenging?

Also do you give out your real details in online surveys, like postcode, name DOB etc?

I do get quite disheartened when that happens, yes. One thing that makes it worse is that many survey sites don't give you anything in return for at least trying. I only tend to stick to those survey sites that do.

Yes, and to be honest as the points accumulate so slowly I decided to stick with one of the sites for the moment and I chosen swugbucks. How about you?

mso If you login to your yougov account you can select the frequency of surveys, just make sure you are on the highest frequency possible (you'll find it under personal details). 🐞

I don’t waste my time with those that boot you out of the survey, especially those that boot you out when you’ve nearly completed it - they’re a con and I always let people know on all review sites that they’re a con. Can’t let them get away with it

That’s absolutely true! They shouldn’t get away with that. I feel like I might just give up on surveys after I finish my Christmas never ending list 😂 unless I find more success!

I absolutely get this, really frustrating and has made me use survey sites a lot less, the rewards are often very slow to build up also, I do find though that Panelbase is pretty good, possibly the best I've used but am fairly new to this one

Curious Cat are a nightmare for this, I regularly spend 15/20 minutes filling in a survey and then get kicked out or even worse you get to the page where it says congratulations you have completed the survey and then the next page says, sorry your profile doesn't match. I screenshot pages now with that and send them to Curious Cat, not that they do anything though. I used to belong to about 20 survey sites but only a member with 2 now because of the frustrations

I found that yougov never kick me out of surveys but I receive approx. 1 a month and the redraw amount is £50 so I feel like is going to take me a life time. I am half way through so I am fully committed now ;)

mso I used to be with yougov but didn't fancy seeing my retirement age come before the payout

Yes especially when you feel like you’ve answered the whole survey but then they say you don’t qualify for it

Panelbase and prolific are really good. I have heard people talk about life points but not sure if they actually payout

It is a real shame that this is how they work is in it? I would of happily do surveys so much more often if this wouldn't happen.

Yes I do. I think I might unsubscribe from Toluna as I’ve often completed pages and wasted lots of time then thrown out!

This does happen to me too from time to time and it is frustrating when you’ve just spent time going through it and theres a glitch, it doesn’t load etc. I try not to be too disheartened by it though

I do very few and it annoys me when this happens, which is why I do so few!
