If you want to get rich get a real job. Survey taking is just something to do to fill time and make a few extra bucks. I have been on Vindale for 2 weeks and have made $38 so I am not complaining! Survey money makes great Christmas gifts!

Some of you are over the top. Taking surveys is not a job and you can't expect to make a lot of money. I have been paid 4 times for taking surveys. Never had a problem with them Sure, I don't qualify for all surveys but I am not trashing the company. They are not a scam.

You all are so right, I filled survey after survey only to answer all the questions, watch videos, etc. then told I didn't qualify. Now, I am finally at $55 so I requested a check just to be done with these fools. They rejected my request so I submitted a question asking why. I received a response from them today 4/15/13 that said I had suspicious activity on my account and needed to submit a government issued ID to them and I have two weeks to do that or they will cancel my account. First off, I am not sending some internet company a copy of my government ID and second they cancelled me anyway, lol. My advice is to stay AWAY from these crooks I am letting everyone know because it is such a waste of time.

My response is to Kate in Palm Beach, You are so f---in right!!! You seem to do these guys right and they find every way to screw you over. I have "so called" completed so many of Vindales surveys and I was'nt even credited for after I completed. I have other GOOD sites that really pay and I have used for a few months and have collected many times in just a few months!!! I just wish I could get rich!!!!

All I can say is, I am truly glad that I stumbled on this site. I was really trying to find some way to make some money, When I thought I could at Vindale. My story is very close to most of the reviews you have on hand. after many hours of doing surveys and hearing I wasnt qualified, for all the hours I put in I had made A grand total of seven dollars.

This site is a SCAM! They ask you to fill out a survey to see if you are qualified for it. At the end of each survey they tell you that you are not qualified to take that survey! I answered 3 surveys truthfully and was told I wasn't qualified to take them. Then I took another one and lied and said I used all products and services and was still told I didn't qualify to take survey. Such a SCAM! Waste of time.

These fools keep sending me survey spam scams and when I go to the site to cancel it says "THIS EMAIL ADDRESS NOT ON FILE" WTF HOW DO THEY KNOW TO SEND ME EMAILS THEN? FLEE FROM THIS GARBAGE COMPANY.

99 percent of surveys are a waste of time. nine out of ten $1.00 surveys reject me and say i'm not "qualified" after I just spent 10 minutes filling one out. I made $3.30 in 5 hours. Don't waste your time and energy on this garbage.

I have taken several low paying surveys, you the ones, your get "pre-qualified" by Vindale, the sent to a third party site, "re-qualified", accepted, then spend 30 or 40 minutes taking a survey, and once completed, it returns you to Vindale only to get "quota filled". Yep, that's right, do all the work, provide the honest and complete value, and then Vindale finds a way NOT to pay.
This has happened to me on six separate surveys in one day.

I hate all the spam! I have better things to do than spend valuable amounts of my time erasing spam! Thanx Vindale. I got ripped off!

They let you take survey's and then tell you that you did not qualify to make money. fraud!

This company is a hoax, or scam! While attempting to sign up-I received an inbox message that said Thank you for signing up and then showed me a different name than mine and that persons password! Thankfully I withdrew any interest

I signed up a couple of weeks ago. Agree with posts already made. Waste of time trying to qualify for survey and then never meet qualifications. Worse is that they want to pay you $1.00 for a survey that takes 30 minutes. My time is certainly worth more than .03 an hour. I am retired and want to make a little extra cash. With a Master's Degree, I think I need to get more than .03 an hour.

There really is no point in wasting any more time on this site. It has become a uniform list of $1.00 studies no matter the time each requires for completion. Further, nearly all of these studies require that you join an ongoing online panel for which you have to sign up yet again, giving your personal info and committing to repeated participation for a period of a week to weeks on end for entries into drawings that promise a chance at 'cool' (ahem!) prizes.

Right! And if you don't care for that sort of thing, because we all know that they’ll thank us by inundated with megatons of spam as thanks, then the only thing remaining - for that precious $1.00 - are Global Test Market studies. These are hosted by TRW, Kelton and the like, who are notorious for studies taking twice the time you were told they would, not to mention, extremely boring with long pages of repetitive questions. As a final insult, you are mostly disqualified after near, and at times full, completion of their studies.
The Vindale 'support' (uh huh) panel no longer is involved. They will tell you that they have no control over crediting, should you be fortunate enough to receive a reply to a concern. So are they saying their clients can look into our accounts but Vindale’s own support panel cannot? Just who is in charge? We signed up with Vindale, not their clients! Lately, numerous completed studies remain pending indefinitely. To give you an idea how bad it has become, I have over $90.00 hanging in limbo with no idea when I might receive credit.
Sad to say, that a once really good survey site has gone the way of the dinosaur and has become practically worthless. Perhaps, someone else will take over in the future making Vindale a good place to be once again. In the meantime, better look elsewhere.

Done so many evaluations, just to be told I don't qualify. Same with mysurvey.com. Now all I'll be getting is false hope in my emails & spam up the ass. Thanks Vindale...

Just got paid yesterday by Vindale, sent me $50 to my Paypal account, I have proof if you want to see, my current balance is $25.66 on Vindale, so i should be cashing out again soon in December plus i'll even help out the people with the surveys if they wanna qualify and get paid, i gave it four stars because they need more study surveys.
