I'm really frustrated with surveyhead right now. It seems that I can never on time to do the survey. I never had the idea of how long does it takes before the survey close after they sent the e-mail of new survey notification. Today I received the e-mail around 9.45pm our local time. I click the link around 10.10pm and the survey is already close. That have been happen so many times already. There even times when I click the survey link just a few minutes after I received the notification but the survey was closed again. This type of things really make me mad.

Hi friend, sad to hear about this, i am also in survey head, but don't get frequent surveys due to the geo targeting activities, really it will give irritation if this kind of situation happen to us, it is really hard to reach the payout from survey head, better to concentrate with other sites

Try to check it daily Vidia, also when they ask you to update your profile survey. Do it once a month or so. I'm from Indonesia and one step closer to the payout. Recently, I got a survey worth $2. Good luck!

vidhyaprakash, I usually get survey notification every week. But none of it was completed. It is either the survey was closed or I've been screened out. devilova, You're more lucky because you manage to almost reach the payout.

Oh yes, marc! I have the same dilemma with that site. So I never go back there anymore. I'd rather spend my whole time with myLot rather than on that site. I will just get headache.

Try to check it once a day without have to wait their notifications. Also, try to always update your informations. I need one survey again to reach the payout. Hope you will also reach the payout limit.

@aries1973, I spend more time at mylot compares to surveyhead also. It just frustrating to know the survey always close within a few minutes after receive the notification. @Devilova, Have you always found a survey available for you by that way? If yes, I would also like to try that way. Good luck for you. Hope you reach the payout soon. Mine still far to go.

I am about the same as all of you here. I just reached the cash out threshold at $25.00. Then I realized that I just could redeem for this |Rixty Online |Entertainment Card with this amount of money. If I want to cash out by my Paypal account, I have to wait and collect another $10.00 USD. Paypal cash out will only be entitled with the balance of $35.00 and above. Before, I never realize of such cashing out scale. I am really disappointed to this Surveyhead. I joined this Surveyhead for mote than one and a half years ago and the cash out of my money is still a long way to go.

Surveyhead is a very dishonest survey site. It never state clearly about out cash out threshold with the Paypal. With the amount of $25.00, we just can redeem for Online Games Card. For Paypal cash out, we must have the balance of $35.00 USD in our account. I really dislike this site because of long waiting period for getting the credits after my completion of a survey and it is very difficult to earn too. For those who are at the early stage, I do advise them for not wasting their times here.

Yes, you are right. In fact, I just treat as an extra to me since I am online all of the while. For instance, this Globaltestmarket would grant me 5 points even though I was screened out. However, I quit this site after I managed to collect few pay checks from them. ha! ha! I hated to be query too much and too details. I do not hope to involve in any other survey sites anymore.

It does seem like surveys fill up awfully quickly on that site or when I've gotten surveys they make me spend far too much time on them only to then tell me that I didn't qualify. I've actually already met the payout amount BUT I can't withdraw the money because 4 of the surveys I took and qualified for have their payment amount in "pending" status and they've been sitting like that for over a week now!! Have you or anyone else had that issue too? Where survey payments take forever to go from pending to approved?

There was time when I been filling up a lot of the survey and only to find out I have been screened out. At least they gave me a few cents for the effort I've made. Even at Global Test Market, if we get screen out we get at least 5 points. It is not much but at least it shows they appreciate our effort. Regarding the pending payment, I've yet to see that and experience it.

Rarely get invited one thing. Getting invited but the survey closed as soon as we enter it is another thing. Then doing the survey half way and get screen out is another things. I see we all have a lot of grundge against surveyhead here.

That has happened to me a lot of times in the past. Actually, I have been an active member of surveyhead for more than 4 months now and until this day, I am still at the $10 mark!

I've been a member of Surveyhead for several years now, and I know from experience how frustrating they can be. I actually had to file a claim against them a couple of years ago, because it took them so long to pay me. The only way to assure that you'll be able to take a survey is to jump right on them whenever you see them in your inbox. Surveyhead is a legit site, but I don't think it's worth the trouble and effort.

There are a few occasion where I really jump to their sites once I get their notification, but it stated that the survey was close. While it doesn't take so much effort, but it driving us frustrated.

I'm not hoping much from this site. But the way they manage their survey make me frustrated. Global Test Market are so much better. Even if I get just 5 points, at least it didn't get unavailable just a few minutes after I get the survey notification email.

i think many people using surveyhead must face this kind of problems also because surveys on this site are not so much and you must complete opportunities when the site will ask you if not you never gain the minimum amount of money to request the payout!!As a survey site is not a quick earning site so you need patience also because it takes time to confirm your surveys and so the cashout!!Now i am waiting confirmation to cshout on this site i think that in the end of the month i will be able to request my money and receive it on paypal...i hope!!

Surveyhead is a very popular site among survey seekers,so everybody wants to participate in their survey invitations.This is the main reason why their surveys are closed fast.I am also a member of this site and at the moment $27.82 in my account.Try to check their site frequently,just like what i did last night and find one $2 survey for me,though i was screened out but i will keep doing this.Hope this will help you.Happy mylotting.

Yes that happens to me too on there. I think what is worse that I don't seem to qualify for any of the surveys they send me. I have to do a bunch of screening questions to be told I am not eligible. Waste of time.

At Surveyhead, I think you should check it daily without have to wait their notifications. Cause sometime, when I got a notification then I go login. The case is like yours, but suddenly a new survey comes and I got $2 survey. I am one step closer to reach the cashout limit. Good luck!
