Online Surveys Worth It?

July 2nd, 2008 at 08:32 pm

I'm thinking about doing some online surveys for money.

I'm not sure if this will be worth it or not. Any extra money will help, especially if it can cover the cost of groceries ($40-$50/month). And from what I've heard they don't take that long. With school and work I can spare a couple hours a week for surveys but not much more.

This has probably been posted before so I'll look through the archives on the forum but if anyone has any tips for doing surveys that would be great.

    I joined a few sites but I don't know how legit they are.

    Don't spend money to join a survey site. There are genuine money paying survey companies. Try global test market, mysurvey.com, greenfield and pinecone research. We make about $500-600 per year with our surveys and use it to pay for Christmas!

    Wow! I'm hoping to make just $100 or $200 a year.

    I've heard of the site surveypolice.com so I'll definitely check out the survey website on there.

    Not a fan.

    Did not like MySurvey. I spent hours doing surveys and didn't even get to the $10 minimum to cash out, so I dropped out. I'd say that one is not worth the time.

    I didn't qualify for pinecone, which I have heard is very good.

    We do make decent money (about $500/year as well) doing focus groups for a local marketing company. They were new and desperate and we were making $100-$200/month for a while, but it's slowed down considerably as they have expanded their base. That being said, it is still a nice side stream of income. They usually pay at least $30/hour. we still get a gig at least every 60 days.

    $1/hour? Eh. $30/hour - I am there!

    I have been doing SurveySpot and have not got anything. I LOVE Mypoints, its free and I get gift cards all the time!

    When I joined this site and heard about others using legit survey sites, I joined a few back in March and took alot of surveys from March-May. I've had the most success with SurveySpot, I got probably $60 from them for two months of surveying. Usually their checks are pretty prompt too, although I did have a few that were still coming in during June.

    I've also gotten a check from OpinionOutpost and SurveySavvy, the OpinionOutpost was for $20.50 because it was a LONG (40 minute) survey. I am trying to get back in the habit of doing them again, because if I'm going to sit around bored after work, it's nice to get little checks in the mail, like a bonus! Good luck!

    I have had good luck with nfomysurvey.com. If you want to be invited, send me your real first name and your e mail address. Stay away from inbox dollars.

    I like pinecone and mysurvey. I know I don't make $40 a month...but I may make $150+ a year between the two.

    My neighbor did an 8 eight hour gig for a local marketing company...paid him $100. Check your local phone book and look them up online to see if they have a website where you could sign up.

    I just made $10 on surveyspot doing a survey on my lunch break today!
    Surveyspot rarely offers cash payment for surveys but they did for this one and I am VERY surprised that I qualified Smile

    Thanks everyone for you advice!

    I haven't signed up for any survey site yet but I'm still looking around.

    Thanks again!
