A review of e-Poll as an online survey site earns it a “C”. By The Survey Sheriff.
This is an ongoing review of popular online survey sites. The sites offer cash, prizes, sweepstakes and other rewards for people interested in spending a few minutes or hours online taking surveys. As with all these reviews, a letter grade is given for each online survey site. The grade is based on my own experience, but also on the following criteria:
1. The rewards/prizes offered
2. The frequency of surveys available to be taken
3. How quickly payment is made for completed surveys
4. Responsiveness to customer complaints
5. Fewest glitches or other incidents that make taking a survey unpleasant.
SpringBoard America – Grade: C
SpringBoard America is a relatively new online survey site. Its parent company is called Vision Critical, based in North America but with offices around the world. Most of the SpringBoard America operation is fairly typical of online survey sites. You take a survey and you get cash called Survey Dollars. Springboard surveys seem to tend more to societal and political surveys than most online survey sites.
The surveys at this site are fairly easy to take – not too long and not too short. I’ve found them fairly interesting at times (particularly the ones on topical subjects).
There isn’t a whole lot that is bad about SpringBoard America except for the fact that polls are few and far between. The minimum number of Survey Dollars you need to cash out is very high, $50, so it will take you quite a while to collect enough to cash in. Once you do collect the minimum it is fairly easy to cash out – you can use a PayPal account, request a $50 check be sent to you, or donate it to a US charity.
Nothing bad about SpringBoard America. It’s not the best site only because there are so few surveys offered and because it takes a long time to earn enough to get to the cash out minimum.
