Valued Opinions Complaint - This company BAITS you into filling their surveys only to tell you youre not qualified?
Resolution Update on 12/05/2010:
I forgot to update, I finally DID recieve an email where they credited me for the survey. I have continued to use them and finally just made enough in my account to redeem my gift card. HOPEFULLY they will make good on their offer, and send me the 20 dollar amazon gift card! I will keep you all posted.
As you all know, I enjoy giving my opinions and reviews about products & services. I signed up for this website called Valued Opinions that rewards you with credits towards gift cards and such. Once you reach 20 dollars, you can request a gift card for certain stores. Well today, I received an email inviting me to fill out a survey. I go to their site, and spend about 20-25 minutes answering 80-100 questions about holiday shopping. Once completed, I will be credited 2 dollars towards my gift card. After I answered all of their questions, they tell me that I am not qualified for the survey? WHAT? What was I doing the last 20-25 minutes answering all these questions for? This has happened to me before with this site, but not nearly to the length and extent that I just endured with these questions. I am absolutely IRRITATED. They BAIT you into telling you they will credit your account, only to SWITCH and tell you you don't qualify after spending all that time answering those questions? that is THE LAST survey I answer with that company! I did MY PART by answering their questions, but they FAIL ON KEEPING THEIR DEAL! HERE'S A REAL "VALUED" OPINION- Stay FAR away from these scam artists! www.valuedopinions. com
