I have concluded that unless you have absolutely nothing to do with your time the Survey Points club is just a complete waste of it. Tried it a couple of times just for giggles.  You get halfway through the survey and then either you get a message "we have enough replies to this survey" or "this survey is not for you"  All for maybe $1.00 worth of points or less.  Right they are;  their surveys are not for me. Go give the 13 cent consolation prize to someone else.

Another reason that this is a scam is that you get an email saying complete a survey for 50 points in ten minutes and when you open the survey it says earn 30 points in 19 minutes. Their emails are false and misleading and you often get kicked out in the middle of the survey. I am done with this nonsense. It is a complete waste of my time.

I think that if the computer does not like your answers , it will say this survey is not right for you. I completed the survey about Wells Fargo bank and it appears that it didn't like my answers but when I had completed it says that this survey is not right for you. Keep in mind that I have a Wells Fargo account. It had a lot of leading questions which they wanted positive feelings about the bank after they got caught charging people for unwanted accounts. I think I was denied my points because I didn't say what they wanted me to say.
When in doubt take the train.

Email address I received this from looked suspicious to me. It also didn't match other survey companies that I have seen or used in past. I received this email several times - deleted it on all occassions.
 
Your choice to fill it out or not. Don't be surprised if something negative happens when you do.
 
I received emails in 2017 - I realize this is a 2016 thread - just a heads up to use caution - double check when these things come in.

As I said before its a complete waste of time. You are promised 50 points for a 10 minute survey, then when you open the link it says 30 points for a 20 minute survey that takes 35 minutes IF you don't end up getting kicked off midway with "This survey is not right for you" and get the 13 cents worth of points.  So its right for them and not for you. Latest I hear is that they are now asking for personal information. Glad that I cut them off before they wanted to do this. This Survey Points Club not only a real cheap outfit, the payout is not fair for the time required.

Trouble here as well.

 

I've earned a *ton* of points doing surveys (I aim for 30 points a day).

 

All of a sudden, I can't access my account, points aren't posting despite successful completion of survey.

I wrote an email to the address provided and got a response. The support person asked me for a screenshot of what the problem was. Frankly, I’ve been a bit too busy to do so as of yet, so I’ll share later my results unless the problem resolves itself or somebody beats me to the punch.

I emailed and was told to clear my cookies and cache. Which I did and tried to sign in multiple devices with the same issues requesting my rewards number. I called two days ago and left a message as all agents were busy. Same today. Kind of irritating as I am in the middle of two decent paying product studies I cant complete now. Not to mention, it would be nice to build back the points used over the holidays.

Same here.  I was able to log in.  I didn't have time to take a survey, but soon.

How did you manage to take surveys when you couldn’t access your account?

A long time ago, I had bookmarked the "take a survey" page, and that's what I was able to land on. I think I did 6 or 8 surveys worth about 250 points. However, they did *not* post to my AGR account (which I never had a problem accessing). I was unable to access the "my profile" page showing what surveys I had completed. When it got fixed, the points from those surveys posted to my AGR account, and I was able to access the "my profile" page.

 

Hope that makes sense.

Makes sense but I never thought of bookmarking the actual “take a survey” page. I was trying to get on through the “my profile” page and totally locked out.....obviously not able to take any surveys during the period that the issues persisted.

Here's the *other* interesting thing:

 

While this issue was a problem, I couldn't do a booking on Amtrak using points. I got a cryptic message telling me something like "Points redemption is not available. Please call an agent at (phone number)."

 

That seems to have been resolved as well. No problems looking at booking using points for the last 2 days.

Strange. I’m glad the AGR issue is resolved as soon I’m going to need to research a points trip.
