i-Say Survey Panel – Survey Site Review (Feb 2012)

Name: i-Say By Ipsos Survey Panel (Use to be Ipsos i-Say Survey Panel)

Link: http://www.i-say.com/

Who Is Eligible: Pretty Much Anyone

Type of Award Or Payment: Cash (points) / Gift Cards / Paypal / Charity Dollars / Instant Prize / Sweepstakes / Aeroplan miles

(500 point = $5.00 CDN/USD) Must have 500 points = $5.00 CDN/USD To Cash Out

Points Or Cash Normally Earned Per Survey: 0 – 50 points

Sign-Up Time: Not Very Long

How Many Surveys To Expect Per Week: 0 – 15

How Long Does It Take To Collect A Reward Or Cash Out: Varies quite a bit based on target demographic of the month. But often it will take most people way longer then they really would want to wait to cash out.

Do They Spam You: No

Overall Score: 1.5 out of 5 – There is still a real lack in overall surveys FOR MOST PEOPLE. Personally I have not received any surveys since my (Nov 2011) review of i-Say. i-Say seems to have a truck load of new options to cash in and redeem with your points.

But I still feel that even with a new lower 500 point level for a $5 CAD/USD cash out. i-Say will still take you some serious time to achieve even at the new lower $5 for 500 points level. Which is still insane to say the very least. When your not even getting 1 survey a week (Unless you are really lucky).

Very Important Side Note: i-Say seems to be very very picky with who they send surveys too. I say this with ease and way over a year of proof that they will only pick certain people based on sex, age and parenthood  status.

(Which makes sense. But suck for the likes of me and some of my crew. Who are male age 26 and older without kids)

Most often the surveys are going to mothers with kids under 18. The other huge segment is mothers or fathers with adult kids 18-25 years of age.

I would be very surprised if you got any surveys. If you were male age 26 or older without kids. It also seems to be lopsided with regards to the same age range with the ladies. If you are a female of almost any age. You are way more likely to get surveys and be able to cash out.

    I have to disagree with you on this one. I’ve been with I-say 3 yrs now & its easy for me to collect points (might be because I’m a 26 yr old female) but I don’t have kids. They do ask in almost every survey if you have kids, but more than half the time I still get in though. Sometimes the surveys are tedious & annoying (like when you have to select your emotion for every single thing) but over all I think its worth it for the rewards. Love the cash & paypal options, so I will be able to redeem $150 or continue saving up.

      Dear Ambreen,

      Our tests have proven that the ladies out there get better reception from i-Say. I’m not saying that there are not other people out there. That don’t fit the pattern, I’ve laid out in my review. But the ladies seem to do way better on i-say then guys on average.

      Later Dayz,

      Remy “Se7en”
