Harris Poll Online
Harris Poll Online is a unique online survey company. By signing up for their program, and taking their surveys, you can help influence the development and products of corporations, non-profits, government agencies and more! Not only can your opinion be heard so you can influence the world around you, you can also earn cash and rewards for your time and opinion.
Who is eligible to sign-up?
To be eligible to participate in Harris Poll Online surveys, you must be a residing resident of the United States and its territories, or Canada. It’s free to sign-up, and you will never be charged to be a member of their survey panel. When you sign-up you will complete your profile section, which will include your contact information, as well as your likes and interests so they can give you relevant surveys to fit your demographic.
Are they legitimate?
Harris Poll, as a company, has been giving surveys for forty-five years. They are a reliable company, with a long-standing record of confidentiality and reliability. Your survey answers will always be kept anonymous, and your privacy and contact information will remain protected.
What do you earn?
Harris Poll Online uses a point based system to give you rewards. Harris Poll Online points are referred to as HIpoints. Like many survey companies, these points can be redeemed for gift cards, products, and sweepstake entries. Not only do you earn HIpoints, but you are also entered into sweepstakes each time you complete a survey as well.
What can points be redeemed for?
The rewards you can earn vary on the amount of HIpoints you have to redeem. You can redeem your HIpoints for e-gift cards to places like Starbucks, iTunes, and Amazon.com, or you can use your points to give yourself additional sweepstakes entries, or you can redeem your points for physical products. If you choose a physical product, you may be responsible to pay shipping charges out of pocket. In the case that you do need to pay for shipping charges, that will be made very clear on the rewards redemption page. HIpoints cannot be redeemed for cash, checks, or Paypal payouts. Keep reading though, there may be some other opportunities from Harris Poll Online to earn some cash!
How do I get surveys?
Most surveys will be sent via email, to the email address you have on file in your profile section. If you don’t open the survey emails often enough, your spam filter will start to catch them, and you will begin to miss survey opportunities. The more surveys you take, the more surveys they will send you.
Surveys vary in time and length, depending on what they entail. Sometimes you will need to complete a preliminary survey, that’s short and sweet, to see if you’re eligible to take the full survey. If you’re not eligible, you may still receive an entry into the current sweepstakes. If you are eligible, you will be asked to complete the rest of the full survey. Always give an honest answer, so your survey answers can be accurate, and survey information can be reliable. Even if you aren’t eligible, this helps give Harris Poll Online a more accurate representation of who you are, and will open up more survey opportunities for you in the future.
Watch out for cash in the mail!
Another incredibly popular detail about Harris Poll Online, is that if selected at random, you will receive cash in exchange for a survey participation. Even though you cannot redeem HIpoints for any type of cash out option like Paypal or a Visa GIft Card, you may be able to earn cash this way. When you sign up, your name is put on a list. Random participants are chosen from that list and will be sent cash, and a survey in the mail. You get to keep the cash, and fill out and return the survey (no postage necessary). Once you’ve done that successfully, you will receive other surveys like this at random. BE CAREFUL! These cash-filled envelopes can often masquerade as junk mail, and in throwing them away, you could be throwing away an envelope full of money! Check the return address, and see if it’s from Harris Poll or from Nielsen Advertising Company, as those may both be what you’re looking for. To be on the safe side, after signing up, just open and check any junk mail you get just to be sure.
Can my spouse and I both sign-up?
Only one person per household can sign up to take Harris Poll Online surveys. By doing this, they keeps their survey panel diverse, and receive well-rounded results for their survey data. Even if you have different emails, if you live in the same house, only one person, ages thirteen years and older, can sign-up for their survey panel.
