Review – [Updated Intel for 2019]

Big Spot ( has been claiming for the past decade that consumers can be financially rewarded for sharing their opinions via online surveys.

Despite BigSpot reflecting over 14 years of continual domain existence, reviews shared by consumers across the web depict troubling consumer experiences that suggest BigSpot exercises questionable business tactics.

As you will learn throughout the course of our concise review, there is much more than what meets the eye with BigSpot that you should be aware about PRIOR to registration.

With this in mind, sit on back and relax because we are about the lay out the facts for you.

About BigSpot

BigSpot functions as an online hub that provides potential opportunities to earn money and rewards by participating in online market research surveys.

The surveys featured may be administered by Bigspot or other third parties you may (and likely) have to sign up with.

Allegedly there are no fees to use the ‘services’ offered on their website or with any of their affiliated 3rd party websites.

You may have recognized BigSpot from their innumerable television commercials that they have been capitalizing on in the most unlikely way for the past few years.

Providing just enough information to entice those who see their commercials, BigSpot implies that everyday consumers can be financially compensated for simple sharing their opinions and taking online surveys.

Unbeknown to most consumers, most online review hubs have labeled BigSpot as a shady survey outlet that is not upfront regarding their true agenda.

An agenda that is allegedly based upon the concept of simply accruing as many consumers personal information as possible for financial gain.

Whether this is true or not we cannot be certain but we also find it unlikely that the corporate entity responsible for (Varsityplaza, LLC) would continue to be an active corporation for over 14 years.

How Works

BigSpot does not provide much information from the start when you visit their site.

There is no information regarding who they are, what their mission is and what you can expect in return for your efforts and time.

Before you can see what survey opportunities are offered consumers are required to submit their Date of Birth, Gender then select on “Join Now.”

The only information we are given at BigSpot homepage would be that consumers can allegedly become matched with companies that are seeking opinions.

By taking their free surveys you can put extra cash in your pocket, or so they say.

If you were to register through BigSpot by selecting Join Now you will likely have been redirected to the following page (shared below).

From there you will be matched with a survey company where you will have to complete their registration process that will require quite a bit more personal information from you.

Depending upon the demographics of where you are signing up, your date of birth and gender will dictate which survey companies you are able to work with.

Given BigSpot’s relatively poor web-rankings we do not believe their site receives much incoming visitor traffic.

Is Worth the Hassle?

BigSpot has a notorious reputation across the web for not compensating their users or working with 3rd party survey companies that fail to honor their promises to consumers who have sacrificed much of their valuable time and effort.

Given the fact that BigSpot has been dealing these issues for a few years now and have failed to find any legitimate solutions we do not feel that BigSpot is worth the hassle.

BigSpot Scam Review – The Ruling

We do not feel that BigSpot puts their consumers needs over their own, as consumer feedback harshly suggests.

To add, BigSpot does not appear to be a reputable online survey hub according to market intelligence sites.

So why would you want to potentially waste your valuable time and jeopardize the exposure of your submitted personal information with an online survey entity that reflects a questionable history of consumer complaints?

Just because an offer seems simplistic and valuable doesn’t always mean that the offer is genuine, especially when it relates to the online industry.

With this in mind, remember to exercise caution and try to gather a complete picture of the legitimacy of a company before dishing out your time, money and effort.

Outcome: BigSpot should be Avoided!
