Overall Score: 1.5 out of 5 – There is still a real lack in overall surveys FOR MOST PEOPLE. Personally I have not received 4 survey since my (February 2015) 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 whom they send the bulk of their surveys too. I say this without a doubt and way over a 3 years of proof that they will only pick certain people based on sex, age and parenthood status.
(Which makes sense. But sucks large for the likes of me. Who is male and 31 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 for the ladies. If you are a female of almost any age. You are way more likely to get surveys and be able to get your payout.
