YouGov.com is a website that allows anyone to become a panel member for free, in order to collect real peoples’ opinions from across the nation.

YouGov conducts polls and surveys about politics, public affairs, brands, and other topics of general interest. Once you become a member, you will begin receiving invitations for surveys. For every survey you complete, you will earn points.

The points you earn can eventually be exchanged for a variety of different rewards, including T-shirts, tote bags, gift cards, movie tickets, and sometimes even cash.

Not all surveys award points upon completion, however. Some surveys simply enter you into a monthly drawing for cash prizes.

A Different Kind of Market Research

Most market research companies are contracted by major corporations in order to discover what their target market is looking for in product development, advertising, or just general wants or needs.

YouGov.com, on the other hand, has a decidedly political aspect to their market research. They claim to be a non-partisan organization, whose surveys do not represent either a Republican or Democratic view.

However, YouGov does partner with outside organizations to gather opinions from their members. These surveys are completely confidential, and though your responses will be provided to an outside organization, none of your contact information will be.

When you sign up with YouGov, though, you must provide your accurate home address for two reasons. First, they need to know where to send your prizes once they’ve been redeemed. Second, some of their political surveys are specific to a region or voting population.

YouGov Surveys and Prizes

The average survey at YouGov.com will only take about 5-7 minutes to complete, though surveys can vary in length. YouGov says their longest survey will not run longer than 20 minutes to complete.

As for their rewards and prizes, you must become a member of YouGov before you can see how many points you must accumulate in exchange for a prize. Currently, though, they are giving new members a welcome bonus of 1000 points, so hopefully it won’t be too time consuming to earn a prize.

  • This has nothing to do with acting on behalf of the government it is a way of nicking your information IT IS A SCAM!
  • They send a lot of covid-related "surveys" that invariably are "push-polls". They're not so much interested in public opinion as shaping that opinion through their misleading persuasion.
  • Don't know what is going on with YouGov, never had a problem redeeming points in the past, but, cashed in for a

    $100.oo gift card two plus months ago, never received. Contacted yougov. four times about the status of my gift card; not once has yougov., no getting back to me.
  • Now they want you to give them your bank savings account number to receive your money. Only option. I don't trust that at all. Cancelling account!
  • They no longer pay rewards out. Instead they block you from the site
  • I used to get the You Gov polls all the time, but all of a sudden I don't get them anymore. I wonder why? Maybe my answers were consistently conservative and that didn't fit their narrative. I did like to read the comments that folks posted.
  • The “nays” have it.

    I’m glad I never got to know YouGov.

    After signing up it dawned on me that I should look to see if there were any reviews on YouGov instead of possibly wasting my time.

    Sorry for all of you that have; but, just think how many have read your reviews, and because of you taking a little bit more time you’ve saved a lot of us time and frustration!

    THANK YOU!!!
  • It looked good for awhile. Maybe get a gift card. Doubts we’re already in place. Don’t do the stupid survey. They are politically motivated. Nice to begin. Now after many many surveys. My phone / IP address must be black listed. As the webpage doesnylist. As I assume I entered an answer it didn’t like. Sorry don’t get duped. I am sure they already sold my info.
    • I racked up enough points for $100 cash and it wants my bank account information. No thanks! With the reviews I’ve read of not receiving the money last thing I’m going to do is give my personal banking info to a company who doesn’t even pay up when there’s many other ways to send money. I’m done with yougov. What a waste of time!
  • Nearly up to £50 payment. Now seem to be ignored.They don't want to make payments I think.
  • YouGov is a scam, a fake survey and it represents the Democratic view.
