In last 2 days I completed and qualified for 5 surveys and only got paid for 2 which don't make no sense. One survey I say for over 30 minutes.

i think the survey co. should be penalized for false advertising if they are not honest. i spent alot of time on surveys and some of them waste your time,  after 20 mjn. some say they reached their quota other say you dont qualify, why cant they say it in the beginning 0f the survey, some are honest and good

One thing to keep in mind is that surveys usually have quotas.  It sometimes happens that you do everything correctly, but in between the time you clicked the survey and the time you actually finished it, they hit their maximum for your age bracket, gender, or whatever.  In these cases your answers are thrown out and nobody gets paid for your time.  It sucks, but it's the nature of the survey systems used by the big survey companies (from whom most surveys originate).

Thanks for providing this explanation, Admin.  Now we know how these survey providers work.

I think surveys on here are about the only way to cash out every month

I had an experience like this on a different site this morning.  I did a survey taking 15 - 20 minutes. I completed the demographics and got to a thank you and submit page. I did so and got a "sorry, you do not qualify". I was not the only member that had this experience.  I wrote support and got an email back saying "we know this must be very frustrating but ......  ".

I had a similar experience yesterday with another survey on this site.

This is a site similar to FC that offers a variety of ways to earn. Usually their surveys have been ok. I do not qualify for the majority but do qualify for some. I have never had this experience before.  >:(

We did the survey. We got ripped off.   :dontknow:

I am glad to have this explained. I consider myself to be a pro when it comes to taking surveys and knowing all of the ins and outs and ups and downs of how they work and to work them, but I always thought "OVER QUOTA" meant the same thing as disqualified. This will make me feel a bit better when I loose a survey the next time.

It happens sometimes and you have to complete the entire survey to then find out yo do not qualify. You will find some that you do though. You have to be patient.

I had one that asked me FOUR TIMES if I had a medical condition, and if a doctor has diagnosed me with one, and so forth.

And FOUR TIMES I said none.  Then it disqualified me.

I think they're looking for sick people to market products to.  However, the main parts of the questioning was about razors and what to use shave with.  So it didn't make sense.
