    Sounds interesting.

    How long on average does it take to fill in a survey?

    I have just signed up.....looks legit.

    How long did it take to get £14.99 worth of surveys? Do they send them to you quite often?

    Does it take long to fill them in?

    I can't seem to find out how to fill in my 'lifestyle' questionaire. Any ideas?

    Thanks.....

    Hi, I'm not 100% how it works I have signed up and entered an accoutn which recieves a lot of junk mail, I don't knwo wether or not they will specify which is from them e.g PureProfile - Lifestyle or if the the title will just be something like: Change your Lifestyle Now!

    If you get any further please reply because i'm not too sure myself.

    Does that mean you hav'nt actually had any money or e-mails from them yet?

    You say in your first post that you use the service and you have used it to claim £14.99 cdwow voucher?

    Do you have to enter a bank account nupmber or credit card number or does the vouchers just come in an e-mail supposedly.

    I have to say, it does look legit.

    Check the website out for details.

    The same company operates in America and Australia.

    You do not give any bank / credit card details and your personal details are never passed on to companies.

    It is worth reading thier terms and conditions as it does sound interesting.

    I think it is a pretty new venture though, so I don't know how many surveys will be sent out etc. It may be a while before the coimpany is big enough so that you get regular surveys.

    You get minimum £1.00 for each survey. Well, they call them surveys but you basically get e-mailed to say there is an advert ready for you. You watch the advert ( couple of minutes ) then there will be 3 multi-choice boxes to tick. Then you get a pound.

    You do not have to watch the ad. If you dont watch it, then it will eventually expire. You can even specify what days of the week you want to be e-mailed with advert invitations.

    When you have racked up £25 you can request a cheque for the cash - or - they have partnered up with ipoints and cdwow so you can swap your pounds for ipoints or cdwow e-vouchers.

    The fact they are partnered with cdwow and ipoints also makes it seem legit.

    In theory, it is a good idea - companies get to send adverts tailored to a specific market and it probably costs them less to pay a few targeted people a pound each than spend stacks on advertising to a mass audience.

    It just means we will have to wait and see how many companies think it is a good idea and allow pureprofile to market them.

    I will keep this thread up to date with how it works out.

    Sniper, that must be frustrating - only one more needed to get a £5 cdwow voucher.

    I am dissapointed I have had no surveys yet, I signed up 3 days ago. I was expecting to be flooded with them.

    Oh well, no point rushing to check my inbox every morning now.

    There is another version of this called emailcash.com.au - very similar thing but looks to be a much bigger operation. It may only be open to residents of Australia though.

    I might sign up and give it a go.

    Just got mine aswell.

    It's actually the 'lifestyle' survey from pureprofile.

    It is what the advertisers will use to direct specific adverts to you.

    Took me about five minutes to fill in - account credited with £1.50 immediatly.

    Jsy have to wait and see if any adverts come through now.


    Sniper - do you have your own home / car / and all associated insurances etc?

    Reason I ask is I would imagine that the more boxes you can tick in the lifestyle survey - the more companies are going to want to hit you with ads.

    Supberb - just got 3 surveys.

    2 from laser eye treatment clinics and one from a loan company.

    Each one took about 20 seconds to fill in and I now have £4.50 in my account.

    Well I registered about a week ago and haven't even had the initial survey!

    How long after registering did everyone else receive theirs?

    Been signed up for a couple of months now, but every time I reach an amount that can be transferred into CD WOW vouchers they somehow manage to sell out !!!!! :mad: . Had £3.00 sold out only £5 or £8 available, got to £5.00 and now only £8 of £14.99 available. Is it me or does anybody else think that it's a scam????

    Not sure about the vouchers, but this does seem like the easiest way to earn money from internet surveys - I was recently sent a survey which consisted of 3 tick box questions (took about 20 seconds to complete) and got paid £2.00 for it! :thumbsup:

    Definately not a scam. It took me a while, but I've built up £5.00 twice now and got CD-WOW vouchers both times.

    Sod's law though that I can't find anything I REALLY want at the mo on CD-WOW. Fortunately there's no time-limit on them.

    Try www.ciao.co.uk

    The surveys take 10 - 15 mins but there are more of the them than pure profile, and they tend to be worth more.

    Also, take a look at this site www.apennyearned.co.uk it lists and reviews loads of survey sites and all sorts of other stuff.

    Hello Sniper....

    The same thinkg happened to me, every time I got enough for a voucher they sold out!!!!

    I got all the way up to £15. The day before when I had £14 they had £14.99 vouchers in stock. Then, as soon as I got another message - low and behold £14.99 vouchers out of stock!

    I contacted CDWOW and Pureprofile. CDWOW were really good. They confirmed that PP had no vouchers on order and would chase it up. A few days later the £8.99 and £14.99 vouchers were available "hooray". I got an e-mail from PP a little later apologising and said it was down to an admin error and would'nt happen again.

    I have been getting loads of surveys from them lately. You need to be very open when you fill in the personal profiles ones that come from PP as they are the ones that act as a basis for selectio. ie. make sure you put that you want new windows, pet insurance, consoldated loans and a nose job. That way you will start getting plenty of surveys.

    I dont think you can change your profile at will - you have to wait for PP to send you one to update. I have only had one so far and that was about 6 months after the inital one.

    All the best.....
