Users' views and opinions are very important because it shows you what people are saying about SurveySpot.
From my research there are still mixed comment about this survey site. Here are snapshots of users’ comment from some review sites
The recent comments are mostly negative ones compared to those before year 2010.
As you can see SurveySpot website is still recorded the latest update in year 2015. This also means they have not been updating their site for few years.
I've done a summary on major issues of SurveySpot as listed below.
They seldom offer cash prizes: If you are looking to earn cash with SurveySpot, then you might be disappointed.
Rather than spending time writing answers in a survey, it would be quicker to grow your cash by writing an eBook.
It is so easy to create one professionally looking ebook and you can list on Amazon to sell immediately.
What SurveySpot commonly offer today are sweepstake entries. If you check their FAQ, they no longer list the number of reward points you might get.
There is lack of precise information about the number of sweepstake entries or even how frequently you may expect to be getting the surveys.
Rate of disqualification can be very high. You will be qualified for a good number of surveys offered by SurveySpot.
It is very common that you will be kicked out after you are almost completing your survey with all the reasons they can think of or maybe without any reason given.
In one case, when someone raised a ticket and tell them about similar issue, this person was unsubscribed without justification.
Not Enough Surveys Available: You have no control over the amount of surveys you are invited to take. It all depends on your demographics.
For example, if a cosmetic company wants to handout surveys to people who have visited their store, you will be excluded if you've never been to one.
What SurveySpot is offering other than reward points is the many uncertainties you are going to faced when doing your survey with them.
You are not able to determine your success solely depending on the effort you put in.
This is because the kind of surveys that are available fluctuate according to market demand.
This opens up to more uncertainties. To earn money from surveys is an odds game!
Disqualified For Surveys: Even if you’re invited to do a survey, you might be disqualified after wasted all the time to fill out the survey.
It won’t happen during initial stage of filling out the survey. In most cases it will usually happen when you are halfway through or even towards the end.
Spending time without getting paid is really frustrating!
High Payout Threshold: Most survey sites typically require you to make at least $10-$20 before they allow you to redeem your points for a cash payout.
But SurveySpot has high payout threshold of $50. With so little surveys and high disqualification rate, I bet you can’t even get paid once a month.
Swagbucks is an exception to this as their payout threshold is very low at only $3.
But you still will be putting in a lot of time doing work that only gives you few pennies.
Do you think it is worth your time?
