YouGov is a survey panel which gives you rewards for answering surveys about politics, products, and more. The main focus of this panel is politics and government.
Surveys are sent to your E-mail and can also be accessed by going to the “my account” section.
Surveys with YouGov are typically very short, averaging about 5-10 minutes. You can expect to earn a few hundred points per survey.
The best part about YouGov’s surveys is that you will rarely be disqualified. They are very good about sending you surveys that you will be qualified for by using your profile.
If you like to give your opinion, especially about politics and government, then polls can be fun. You will not, however, get any kind of reward for completing polls.
YouGov is unclear if completing polls increases the amount of surveys received. I will update this when I find out but I don’t believe it does.
Once you accumulate 25,000 points you can make a donation to UNICEF and after 30,000 points($25 for most gift cards) you can redeem them for gift cards.
The gift cards include; Kmart, CVS, Amazon, Regal Cinemas, and more.

When your friend clicks the link that you supplied them and completes three surveys, you will earn 4,000 points and they will earn 2,000 points!

My Overall Opinion
Overall I like YouGov. The surveys are very easy to complete and the layout of them keep your attention better than most other sites. I also love that I’m rarely disqualified.
YouGov seems to be a very honest panel which keeps your information safe and does not share it with other companies, so you will not be spammed.
I have not had any issues that required me to get in contact with support so I can not say how they handle situations, but I consider it a good thing that I haven’t had any problems!
