This post is my Harris Poll Online review – I was a member of this survey panel and had been paid.
Harris Poll Online is one of oldest and market research paid survey site in the United States. With over 50 years in the business, HPOL has delved into and analyzed every aspect of American life.
For every survey you complete, you’ll earn HIpoints. Once you’ve accumulated enough points you may redeem them for your choice of a variety of prize and rewards. You can redeem your points as soon as you reach a redemption level, or you can let them grow for even greater rewards.
I have been a member of Harris Polls over the years. I receive surveys from them weekly, their surveys are generally easy to do though occasionally time consuming. It’s pretty easy to accumulate enough points for a reward. I have cashed out amazon gift cards and the payments arrived promptly.
UPDATE: It looks like Harris Polls Online website has been compromised (again), This has happened before. Therefore I do NOT feel comfortable recommending them at this time. Here is what they have on their site:
“We value the trust you have placed in us. Please note that we recently discovered an unauthorized party accessed a small number of Harris Panel members’ rewards benefits. As a precautionary measure, we have reset all account passwords and added additional security protocols.”
They deleted my account again due to their own xxxxx – this is the third time!! I am done with them – don’t wasted our time with them, since obviously they are not capable of keeping data secure, therefore they cleaned up their member data every time they are hacked, and as a member you lose all your points!
UPDATE June 2019: I re-joined Harris Poll Online, and everything looked fine. It seems that they finally fixed the security issues and I have had no problems logging into my account, taking surveys and checking point balance etc.
UPDATE March 2020: I just received an email notice from Harris Poll Online subject: Important update on Harris Poll Online:
“We are writing to inform you that, as of March 31, 2020, we will no longer offer new survey opportunities. Not to worry, the points you have earned through March 31, 2020 will still be available for redemption for one year from the date the points were credited to you. Thankfully, this doesn’t mean you have to stop earning.
You’ve been selected to join our prestigious invite-only partner panel, e-Rewards. It’s very similar to Harris Poll Online Panel, with one key difference: there are even more rewards!

I used the invitation link joined E-Reward. Will update review for E-Reward later.
