They won't give you the points when you get to the cash out part, They send a card in the mail to verify with a code because they don't believe you are who you are... Then you get the card 6 months later and your account is closed


They give you surveys and pay into your paypal immediately. I mean within 20 mins! So that's pretty impressive. It would be nice if they paid more than a dollar per survey. But no payment threshold! That's incentive in itself.


Vindale will send surveys to your email then because it's through the email they don't give you points, this has happened twice and I have to cut and paste the survey then get someone to credit the account. They did do so when I went asked them and told them which survey it was.
I've had these problems before with this company. I thought I would give them another chance but it was a mistake to me. I closed my account and forfeited my 4.68 because I just don't trust the site.


I've done two surveys with this company. When you finish the survey it doesn't pay you and going to another survey company's landing page. Hintsters.com (looks like the same company just trying to start up under another name Hinsters.com has the same sketchy interface.
I gave them two chances I'm not wasting any more of my valuable time.
I would strongly advise you to stay away!
I tried closing and unsubscribing and got an error 404 message (another broken link)


I am very happy with the surveys but also the amount of time it takes for this company to pay! Also the threshold is low and fair to cash in.
One of the best I have encountered so far! I've been with them for two weeks and they have already paid out twice


This survey site is alright but it doesn't pay very well. It took me doing 21 surveys to make $13.50 CAD. You can imagine how much time that took out of my life (average survey is 15 mins on here so it took 3 hours and 15 minutes to make $13.50. That's the equivalent of making $4.28 an hour. If you don't mind that then this site it okay! Myself I closed my account after calculating that.

Hi Jamie,
We appreciate you sharing your honest review with us! There are also additional earning opportunities located on our Partner Surveys page.


Also not many survey opportunities, I have cashed in a few times but it takes a long time to make anything


This site is terrible for making money. I have been with this survey company for over four years and have made a total of 70$ in HBC points.
A couple of years ago they changed their points program and it fells like a lot of my points disappeared. I contacted them about it and they're explanation didn't make sense but I let it go. Honestly don't have a good vibe about that incident. Regardless of that I haven't made much obviously in spite of doing close to 400 surveys over the four years. As soon I I get to 80 dollars I am leaving this survey company. Right now I am between 70$ and 80$ and I have been for quite some time.


Been using it for some time and make some money through a points system. You obviously don't make a lot of money but you used to be able to make some through Paypal and lately I have been getting air miles instead or the paypal cash... Now they have cancelled paypal cash unfortunately and the air miles expire and cost a bit more to cash in now


This site is not bad! I have cashed in with them many time since becoming a member back in 2011 using both paypal and now I get air miles and the points don't take to long to add up.


I have cashed out a few times now not to mention I won a prize of 2800$ American from them back in 2011. I would have given them four stars but because I won cash from them they get five :)


This site is okay is you want to make no money. I find most people using the site would want to be but unfortunately I see only the website owners are doing so.


You can't make much doing this


This site is a scam. Unless you like doing nothing for free... do not sign up...
