My Review

Survey Frequency and Qualify – They don’t send surveys often but very consistent,  I receive about 4 -5 surveys per month. Most of their surveys are not long, usually between 10 – 20 minutes. I like do their surveys which are interesting (not boring like some other survey site surveys). They host their own surveys and I have never had any technical problems taking their surveys – and it’s one of the reasons I like them since I know they are reliable and I won’t have any problems in the middle of the surveys.

Survey Rewards and Payment – their surveys usually worth between 100 points to 500 points ($1 – $5), and they do have high paying focus group opportunities.  You will be rewarded 10 points ($.10) if you disqualify their surveys.  I am not sure what’s is their minimum cash out threshold though but I generally cash out once I have $10 (1000 points) in my account. It took a while to receive cash payment.

Conclusion

I think Directive Analytics is a good online paid survey panel, I do recommend it!

    Took a surveys for them and requested cash out today..I also don’t like the fact that have to email them.

  2. Golgotha says:

    I cashed out again and received it within 2 months. Better than 3 months, which is how long it took last time.

    I’ve received payments from them so far: A $30 check for an online discussion panel I participated in and today I received $6.85 in cash in the mail. I’m surprised I actually rec’d it because the $.85 was jangling all over the place when I picked it up. At least I got it.

    [quote name=Brian]I dont get many surveys from them.
    I just cashed out for the first time.
    I dont like their way of requesting payment.
    And on their website its difficult to find out where to log into your account.
    And when you check your balance, it just shows you how many points you have.
    It doesnt show you the surveys you have taken and if you have been credited.
    I have e-mailed them a few times about this, but have not gotten a response.[/quote]
    I finally received the money, it was cash which is not a safe way for them or me. It almost took 3 months to receive it :shock: . Thats way to long.

    I requested 410 points ($4.10) just to test whether they pay, and I received my payment today. I don’t really like the fact that you have to email them for a check request. They told me that in the future panel members would be able to request payment via a cashout/redemption button on their site. Also, I received my payment in cash. Four $1 bills and one dime.

  6. kbennette200 says:

    I see someone commented that you only receive 10 points for surveys. That’s not true. You only receive 10 points = $.10 cents if you don’t qualify. I’ve completed 2 surveys for 200 points each and 200 points is worth $2.

    I requested a check at the end of last year, and it took about a month to arrive. Thats weird that someone got cash, when I received a check and on their website it says you cash out your points for a check.

  8. Justin says:

    I have recieved 5 survey’s from them and all survey were 200 point’s and above. You can request payment when you reach 600 points, $6.00 dollars. I requested payment back in 2008 and recieved my payment in one week. What is weird is that they pay in cash, that is what they paid me.

    [clap] Good news, finally received & completed 2 surveys for 200 & 250 points. Site is looking up. Hope it continues. Does not itemize surveys so good idea to record points before completing survey. Also no minimum needed for cashout but I will wait.

  11. Mei says:

    Leaf, Thanks for clarifying this. I never receiving those survey (maybe I did but I didn’t pay attention..), and I wouldn’t bother with such low paying surveys.. since their points works like 100 points for $1..so 20 minutes survey only pay $.10? :-x no, no way!

  12. Leaf says:

    Yes,definitely 10 points for each survey because the emails I received indicated that 10 points would be given for the survey. They were not prelims as they were at least 15-20 minutes long. However, I did receive $1 for joining, but so far very poor.

  13. Mei says:

    Hi Leaf,

    Are you sure total 3 surveys only 30 points? Did you qualify all the surveys? I am just guessing that you didn’t qualify but they give you 10 points anyway for trying (similar to NFO MySurvey) I could be wrong though.

  14. Leaf says:

    :cry: I have completed 3 surveys (not prelims) for the grand total of 30 points (30 cents) 10 cents each. I will wait to see what happens, will no longer do surveys for 10 cents.

  15. Julia says:

    I have found this to be a great site as well. I received many surveys in the past few weeks and it was so easy to collect my money when I was ready to cash out. :D

  16. Mei says:

    Hi Aley,

    Thank you very much for your feedback! Yes I noticed that I have more surveys from them now, I even one time got a focus group/high paying survey even though I didn’t qualify. They do seems a good survey site!
