Newest Review: ... to pick up a bit and in November I was able to cash in another £50. The number of surveys has increased and it is easier to build up points now than it was before. Even at this rate though it will still take me a year to earn £50. Nevertheless there are some very good reasons to stick with the site. First of all the surveys are always sent to you via email. The links in the email always ... more

If you've never heard of YouGov then listen to some of the national news bulletins. Sooner or later you'll hear the words, "In a YouGov survey most people thought...." However, I must admit that when I first joined the site I was a bit disappointed. There didn't seem to be many surveys available and it took a long time to reach the payout level of £50. In fact it was so slow that after the first payout it took me another four years before I was paid again. Surveys weren't sent all that regularly and they were mostly worth 50 points, the equivalent of 50p. The payout level needs to be 5000 points. Last year, in 2012 the site seemed ...

I've been a member now for several years, and only just hit the $100 reward level - which I claimed - 6 months ago. Not only have I never received the promised check, I can't get any email response to my inquiries about it......although, my inbox is still regularly filled with available surveys. What a waste of time.

After almost 3 years, I finally earned 5,000 points. When I chased a month later, they said I would get the cheque in 7 - 10 days. Since then, they've stopped responding.They don't have a number - so no other way of contacting them.Anyone know where their registered address is ?

I am 75 points away from my second payout of £50 from this company.It is okay but if you join expecting to make a living from it then forget it. I been a member since 2005 roughly. It takes 3 to 5 years on average to reach payout levels and you barely get one survey a month. For me it has taken the best part of a year to get 1000 points let alone 5000.Seriously thinking about closing my account once I reach £50 level. Just not worth it.

I joined YouGov in June 2009 as a way of earning a few extra pennies. Its now November 2011 and I am still 100 points away from reaching the £50 reward. I only seem to receive 2 surveys per month (and the reward can range from 25-100 points) so you can imagine how long it will take to reach the required 5000 points. The surveys themselves are fairly simple and don't take long to complete and are often based on political views or shopping habits. You get the chance to complete surveys which holds no reward, but does put you into a draw to reach a £50 cheque. Again I don't bother wasting my time. They have recently started to allow you to use your points earned to buy ... Read the complete review
