Urban-DNA Survey Panel – Closed

Urban-DNA is a new paid survey panel for me. I signed up with Urban-DNA about a week ago, and I already got a survey worth 2000 points ($4). Urban-DNA uses a point system, and points are redeemable for cash in Visa gift cards.  Here is more information about Urban-DNA rewards:

5000 points = $10   Visa gift card
12,000 points = $25   Visa gift card
18,000 points = $50   Visa gift card
22,000 points = $75   Visa gift card
25,000 points = $100 Visa gift card

Currently I have 3500 points in my account – you get 500 points for just signing up.  Urban-DNA seems a very good survey site!

Urban-DNA seems only open to US residents.

  1. I cashed out 4/17 and have not received anything. I’ve also sent numerous emails with no response.

  2. After trying to call the phone # that they have in their privacy policy and the phone # not working, I decided to read their policy and saw that they said they’re a member of CASRO. I called CASRO and CASRO said no. A representative of CASRO went on the urban-dna.com website while I was on the phone with her and she said that they are definately not a CASRO membr. She told me to thank her for bringing that to their attention. I’ll wait a little longer to see if I’m going to receive my $10 Visa Gift Card.

  3. Hmm…that’s an interesting finding kb.:o I also checked CASRO’s member directory and couldn’t find them. Maybe they use a different name? Anyway, I have removed them from the paid survey list… let’s see if we get paid first, and we will go from there..

  4. I called CASRO to see if Urban-DNA was a CASRO member, and CASRO told me no. In Urban-DNA’s privacy policy they have mentioned that they are a member of CASRO. I’m copying and pasting the paragraph from their privacy policy below.

  5. I tried to call Urban-dna at phone # (510) 587-0077 and the # doesn’t work. I got that # from the contact section in their Privacy Policy.

  6. I cashed out on March 27, 2009 for a $10 Visa Gift card. I email them on April 21, 2009 just to ask them how long does it take to receive the $10 Visa Gift card since this is my first time cashing out with them. It’s May 7, 2009 and I have not received a response yet. That’s 16 days ago since I emailed them.

  7. I just did my first cashed out a few days ago.. will keep everybody updated. Will write a review once receive payment!

  8. How long does it take to receive the $10 Visa Gift Card? I had 8000 points and I redeemed 5000 points for a $10 Visa Gift Card. I currently have 3000 points in my account. How long does it take to receive the $10 Visa Gift Card after redemption?
