What is Harris Poll Online?
Harris Poll has been conducting market research since 1963. They now work with 74 of the Fortune 100 companies and partner with more than 500 firms. You are now able to complete surveys online and earn rewards for your opinions.
After completing your initial survey which asks basic questions about you and your household, you will earn 50 hipoints. You will then start receiving emails to complete more surveys. Unfortunately you must open the surveys through your email in order to participate as they do not store surveys on the website. After opening the survey you will begin answering questions.
There is a qualification process and the approval rate is about 40%-50% in my experience. If you do not qualify for the survey you will receive histakes(sweepstakes) tickets and usually a chance to complete another survey.
Whenever you get 625 hipoints you can redeem them for a $5 gift card to one of their many retailers or restaurants. Unfortunately PayPal is not an option. If you hold onto your points until you have 3,125 then you can redeem for a $25 Walmart gift card which is just about as good as cash in my family.
Another option is to play the spin to win game. You basically just pay 200 points to have a chance at winning a $50 Amazon gift card. I do not recommend doing this because you will usually just earn $1.50 Amazon Digital gift card.
My Overall Opinion
Honestly, Harris Poll is not on the top of my list of survey sites. If you would have asked me a year ago my opinion would have been totally different. Unfortunately they decided they weren’t making enough sometime in the last year because they changed their disqualification reward.
Harris Poll used to award you 15 hipoints just for disqualifying which made it all worth it. Now all that you get are lousy sweeps tickets. The surveys are usually easy and don’t take too long but I think there are better options.
