My Experience/Review (updated October, 2013)
IPSOS i-Say panel has great improvements in terms of panel member account interface, survey quantity and customer service. Right now after you log into your account, you can check your available surveys (which for each survey it indicates points and how many minutes it takes to complete the survey), survey history. It is also very easy to redeem your rewards.
Ipsos i-Say do offer member many online surveys and product test opportunities. Compensations for surveys are not very great (average 90 points/cents), however it does seems I qualify more of their surveys compare to other survey panels. Also if I don’t qualify a certain survey, sometimes I get 5 points for just trying! Their surveys are not very long, and quite easy and interesting.
You also get to play this “Poll Predictor”game every time after you complete a survey to earn extra chances for sweepstakes that offer various prizes such as cash, Yoga classes etc. Those polls are interesting and I do enjoy it! 🙂
I also like the fact that they credit points to your account immediately after you complete a survey not like some other survey panels that it takes weeks to get credits.
Ipsos i-Say also have this “Loyalty Program” to reward members to complete their surveys. Members get “Loyalty Points” for completing x numbers of surveys each year, such as you get 25 points for complete 5 surveys, 50 points for 10 surveys, 100 points for 25 surveys and so on and up to 600 points for 200 surveys.
Ipsos also offer great customer service. I once found out some mistake in my profile and I emailed them and they helped me very quickly!
I suggest you log into their Ipsos account to check available surveys frequently. The reasons are: first, their survey invite emails don’t tell you how many points you will earn, and second and more importantly their surveys do fill fast!
Overall, IPSOS i-Say is a great survey panel, and I highly recommend them!

Panel Support Questions
Q: Why do I sometimes spend a lot of time on a survey before I’m being screened out of a survey?
Every survey we have available has a selection of pre-qualifying questions to determine eligibility for that particular survey. If you don’t qualify for the initial survey you were invited to take, we try to find another survey that you do qualify for. Unfortunately, sometimes you may not qualify for any of the surveys we have available and this is why the process might take a longer time.
Q: Why do I sometimes have difficulties taking surveys on mobile platforms?
Unfortunately, we’re unable to test all surveys on mobile systems. This means that some surveys may not work on these platforms. However, we’re working to ensure all surveys can be taken with mobile devices in the future.
