Pennies For Your Thoughts

AdvantagesThe occasional free sample by way of a product test

DisadvantagesPoor rewards scheme, tedious surveys

"...asked by a company called Synovate Global Opinion Panels to take part in a product test involving a shampoo and hair conditioner.

Should pay more

AdvantagesGet some vouchers

DisadvantagesNeed loads, and loads, and loads of points

"I joined this panel some time ago, along with about 50 other similar panels. It was pretty easy to join, just a case of filling in a few details. A confirmation e-mail is sent to you to complete your registration. It is then up to you to fill out interests and lifestyle.

Quick review of Synovate Global Opinion Panel

"I have been a member of Synovate / Global Opinion Panel for over a year now. The company send you surveys which you complete in return for points. As with many of these schemes points mean prizes. Synovate however have a VERY measly conversion rate for points. 9000 points = £5 (Correct at Agust 2007). For a survey taking 20 minutes you typically get about 600 points, ie 33p. Although you are not going to get rich with any of these survey sites others typically pay about £1-£2 for similar length surveys with some paying even more. Synovate are really the worst payers I have come across. Strongly advise you not to bother to waste your time unless you feel £1 per hour is a reasonable return for your efforts.
