My Greenfield Online Review

I joined Greenfield panel around November 2004. At that time I have to say I was not happy with them – it seemed all the surveys are just for sweepstakes and I didn’t get credit for the cash surveys I took! I was angry like lot of others and almost gave up on them.  However, starting March 2005, I noticed improvement of Greenfield, and they were getting better and better! Since then, I have not experienced any problems with Greenfield in terms getting paid.

Many of  them surveys from Greenfield Online just offer sweepstakes entries, but Greenfield Online does have many cash surveys, and they also have more online focus groups/interactive surveys that pay much more than regular paid surveys. For me, besides cash surveys, I have had the opportunities to do their online focus groups/interactive paid surveys almost at least a few times a year.

Greenfield started offering Payapl options last year late 2007.  Since then I have cashed out a few times and I have received my cash payment via Paypal within about 2 – 4 weeks.

Overall, Greenfield Online is a great online paid survey panel, and I definitely recommend them!!

UPDATE: Greenfield Online Merged with Toluna:

Email received from Greenfield on December 22, 2009:
Greetings Mei,

Recently you were notified of the upcoming changes to our rewards program. We are writing you today with a special update regarding the future changes that will take place to your member account. On January 5th, 2010, your Greenfield Online and Toluna accounts will be combined into one, and your account will solely be accessible through the Toluna website. Effective this date, you will no longer have access to your Greenfield Online account.

During this transition, you will not need to take any action. Your membership and any rewards you may have accumulated will be automatically transferred to your account on the Toluna website. Additionally, your existing Greenfield Online account balance will seamlessly roll over to points, and will be combined with your existing Toluna account balance. You will not lose any earnings during this period.

As a final reminder, if you would like to redeem your Greenfield Online earnings prior to this transition, please do so before 4PM EST on January 4th, 2010.

Our team is very excited to have a unified Community where members are encouraged to interact with another and share their opinions with decision makers around the globe.

  1. Update – I didn’t qualify for their surveys enough…so I deleted my account. Not as good for me in 2011 as it was in 2010.

  2. Update – I was with toluna. I receive 15+ surveys a month and qualify for 1-2 surveys. If you don’t qualify you get entered into a sweeps. I haven’t had any problems with them.

  3. Moe,

    I just received a cash survey from Greenfield for $1.00 (25 minutes), I decide to skip it. In the email, it says:

    Survey On: Consumer topics
    Reward: $1.00 Greenfield Online
    Length: 25 Minutes (Approx.)
    Survey Number: 1070835-US-AUG1

    Well, I notice that sometimes they send surveys and not telling you specifically what the rewards are (the ones give you step 1, 2 3..) – for those and any that not clear about rewards, I would not do them. I assume as long as you stay on their panel, you will get cash surveys some day.

  4. Hey Mei,

    Greenfield 😮 just kept giving me surveys for sweepstakes when I thought they were cash surveys. I’d expect to earn some cash after that many but oh well. Your site is not the only place where I’ve seen Greenfield ranked so high. Demographics? I do not know about that because I live in Boston and you don’t get no more diverse than here. Personally, I wouldn’t waste my time with them but to each is own.


  5. Hi Moe,
    Sorry to hear you have trouble with Greenfield.. I did have good luck with them maybe because of my demographic. (I already lowered my rating for them from 5 to 4 star).

    Have you ever received cash surveys from Greenfield? I only do their cash surveys long time ago and sometimes the very short ones (since those could be screeners for interactive surveys which pay around $20 at least..) At the beginning I did a lot of sweepstatkes for them as well..but not anymore.

  6. Mei,

    I can’t understand why you’d rank this as high as you did. Greenfield :confused: is horrible for the amount of time invested and number of surveys to complete in order to win. I’ve done over 35 surveys with them like a fool and nothing in return but a bunch of sweepstakes. The ROI is dismal but I guess you must have the inside track with them. Otherwise, I like your site and keep up the good work.


  7. One advantage, there is no minimum to cash out. Frustrating, sweep upon sweep. Took months until credits were applied but check received in a short time. Few low paying surveys average $1 for 30 minutes, difficult to access, slow download, always problems. No problems with sweeps. I am still subscribed but no longer attempt sweeps or low paying surveys. Don’t know if I will continue, am starting to resent emails about 8 a day with sweeps. Also, note better paying Greenfield surveys are with Opinion Outpost & Global Test Market. These surveys should be for Greenfield members.

  8. From last 7 months I’m giving surveys for this site.Just got the 8$ check from them.Only complaint is the surveys are mostly for sweeptake entries.Anyways good site.
