Thanks for the answer, QRBecky!

I just started doing surveys last April, so I've never experienced what this time of the year is like. However, in April and May of last year I made $100 a month. I made about $50 a month in June and July, and it took me closer to three months after that to hit $100 (I tend to cash out at $100).

Hopefully things will pick up soon - we are hoping to finance the majority of our next trip through surveys, and at this rate we'll be hauling grandchildren with us (my kids are 12 and 9 now ).

I've also notice more errors in surveys recently. I had one that got stuck and would not accept any valid answers. Another completed and gave a Web page error instead of the completed successfully screen. That one did credit properly despite the error.

$ taken away?

Started QR last week and earned $18 so far. Just logged in and $1 was taken away. Anybody know why this would happen? I've always answered everything truthfully and never given false information. It seems like a good way to earn extra WDW $ but it is time consuming considering how long some of the qualifying information takes to often then be told I don't qualify. Now I'm having money taken out of my account for surveys I did qualify for and complete. I know it's just $1 but if $ can just be taken away how can I be confident all my time and compensation won't be lost? I'm not getting the hang of QR.

From QR's FB page

Today Greenfield/Give2cents and Opinion Surveys Research client had an issue with tracking. They were crediting everyone that completed the survey and even those that attempted or didnít qualify. Obviously those that attempted and didnít qualify or just attempted (clicked) should not be getting credits, but today they have a malfunction which credits for this.

Thank you! Im new to QR and so I'm not familiar with their reliability yet. I was concerned this might be a common problem and I might start seeing my account balance decrease and my time wasted increased.
It's nice to know they have a FB page to check on too. That will be helpful.

I've been with them for over a year and they are very reliable. Their customer service is great, always prompt answers to emails and any concerns I've had were quickly resolved

I got seven surveys yesterday!

1 paid out within hours
1 got stuck on the page before the confirmation page
1 is supposed to pay out in a week
4 were supposed to pay in 24 hours and so far have not.

Update - three days of waiting, and then I turned in the four that didn't credit. Received a very terse response back that it wasn't possible for so many not to credit, and to use a different browser. Okay 1) obviously it IS possible because it happened and 2) I used the same browser I've been using for the past 11 months with no issues.

Am I the only one experiencing issues with QR?!?

Hi, Hoosier37! I'm sorry to hear that you're having crediting problems with our surveys... and also that you received a response from customer service that was less than polite and informative. We strive to meet or exceed our members' expectations, and I apologize that we fell short.

At this time, we aren't having any known survey crediting issues. There was one day last week where the server that powers several of our daily survey routers was down, and it was causing issues with reporting (some people were credited for surveys that they attempted but did not complete). That issue's cleared up now.

When there's a delay in crediting, believe me, our customer service hears about it...from a LOT of people! We aren't getting slammed with complaints, just one or two here and there, which indicates a cookie issue is to blame.

Do you do surveys on any other sites? Or do you share a computer with someone else who does surveys? Either of these things can cause a cookie to be set that your IP address has already completed a survey today, so they won't credit you again. Simply clearing cookies fixes this issue almost 100% of the time.

I spoke recently with a member who insisted, "But I clear my cookies daily! My machine is set to clear all cookies when I turn it off at night." The problem is, if QR isn't the first survey site you go to the next day, the other survey program's completion cookie will be on your machine when you go to our site. So we recommend clearing cookies daily, right before you go to QR to work surveys (or to your QR emails to do them).

Some people are confused about how to clear cookies, or they just don't want to go to the hassle of it. In that case, we suggest that members use a different browser (FF, IE, Safari, or Chrome), exclusively for QR. The completion cookies are browser-specific. So if you completed for example an SI survey through another rewards program on IE, then you load FF to do QR's surveys, the completion cookie won't be there and you should credit fine.

I hope that I've been able to help shed a little more light on how this works, and that clearing cookies or using an alternate browser can help get you crediting again. It's in both of our best interest: we don't get paid when our members don't auto-credit. (The system pays the member at the exact time that the survey site sends us their payment for your completion.) When our members are auto-crediting, we're both making money. Win-win!

If I can help any further, if you have any other concerns or questions, please don't hesitate to reach out! The fastest way to reach me is by email: becky (at) quickrewards (dot) net. I hope we can get you auto-crediting again soon!

Thanks for the reply! I had several follow-up emails from customer service that were helpful, but the problem is still not resolved. I do not use any other survey sites, and I clear my cookies using a program that clears cookies from *all* browsers before I do surveys on QR.

I had another survey from the same day that credited. I had a survey yesterday that credited.

For now I will try using one browser *only* for QR. I have been using the site since April 2011 and while I have had the occasional survey not credit, I have never had four of them in one day like they did the other day.


Thanks for your help!

Any other Canadians here? If you received the email offer to register & receive a DisneyParks Vacation Planner DVD (5000 tokens & 25 QP), I would love to know what website the banner brought you to when you clicked on it.

I'm trying to figure out if I have a malware/hijacking issue on my computer, or if all Canadians are getting a completely different website.

TIA!

EDITED TO ADD RESOLUTION:
Thanks to QR for looking into this! It turns out non US traffic gets directed to that website I mentioned. Now I know I can believe my anti-virus/malware software when it insists there is nothing on my computer

I joined QuickRewards just over a week ago after seeing this post. While it can certainly be time-consuming (some days it seems I either don't qualify for any of the surveys or they've already reached their quota), I've already earned enough for a $25 gift card!

If I can keep up at this rate (when and if time allows), I'll be very happy, since I'll be able to indulge on my brief trip to Disneyland this summer!
