I work for Vindale. We're not a scam! In fact, we're one of the few survey websites out there that are truly legitimate. We are upfront about our policies, we pay our members well (as long as they follow instructions correctly, which are all spelled out clearly on our website) and we have a dedicated customer support system on hand to deal with complaints and questions. We pay members twice a month, every month via checks in the mail and through PayPal. Here's proof: http://www.facebook.com/Vindale?v=photos.
Thanks for reading, please keep an open mind and have a great day!
This Company claims to be a survey or research venue when all of their questions gear towards what product can they offer you at the end of the line of questions. Not once have I been able to complete a survey before it opens into a marketing target. total payout? .15 cents. This is it; a line of questioning for purposes of Vindale to receive commission on every referral to the seller.
Do not sign up for this site. You have to buy the products in the surverys. You will lose money or at the most break even. Its not worth the hassle. You would make more money working for minimum wage at the mall.
This is NOT a legitmate survey site (MOST are not.) Do you REALLY think ANY reliable company is going to PAY you for taking surveys? GET REAL!
Vindale, however, is among the most TOAD-LIKE. You actually have to BUY things before you take surveys. Their caveat? You can get your money back AFTER you take the survey. BULLHOCKEY.
i finally found a place to warn others to NOT get involved in this whole "survery" thing. I have spent at least 100 hours navigating through all this "survey" stuff that issupposed to help earn you al little money on the side. This website is particularly bad because you have to buy potentially expensive things in order to qualify. you will never qualify for a paid survey that you don't have the buy the product to take the survey. i am looking for anyone else who has been through this and feels it is time to stop this false advertising. This needs to go beyond WOT,but oh, how i wish i had WOT before i tried to make a small side inco e. They are all scams..you have been warned by someone who has been through the "survey"mill. if u feel like you would like to join me in stopping what i consider false advertising please email me at:firstname.lastname@example.org
serious people looking to take legal action against this (the time i wasted is worth reimbursement- 100hours at min wage= about $700 dollars, i could have worked at McDonald's part time and made that much) I'm angry and i feel duped and mislead.
I have done 20 surveys for them, and haven't been paid for 7 of them (35%). In total I have earned $158; they have paid $100 so far. I have also spent about $100 in products, so I have made no money by doing their surveys. Finally, they only pay in increments of $50, so I can't get the last $58 that they owe me because they can't verify with their clients that I ordered products, even though I have proof that I did so. So they are ripping me off.
