How can you make money with surveys?

United States
May 16, 2007 3:57pm CST
I read these discussions and read all the comments but I still cannot figure out how you make money with them. I have signed up for SO many survey sites. They either send me a survey and when I complete it I will be entered in a sweepstakes or I have earned so many points. There is only one survey site that I have joined that I have actually made money. If you have any surveys that you have honestly made money with, please , please explain to me how in the world you are doing it.

You can try globaltestmarket.com. I am in India and this survey site has paid me by check in local currency.

How long does it take you to earn money there? Is that the one that you earn points and redeem for cash? Thanks for responding.

That has happened to me too mamacathie. I have one site that has paid me too. Right now I can't think of the name of it but when I can I will look it up and send you the name of it. I got $20 but it was better than nothing at all. There are also two websites that I am a member of called InboxEarnings and SendEarnings. These websites have surveys you can take and they credit your account. Once you reach payout they will send you a check. They also have other offers that you can take part of. If you want to know more about either of these just let me know and I'll get the information to you. SheliaLee

Very good question. I'd like some sites that pay real money. I've filled out so many, only to find that I've been entered into a drawing.

check out my website http://www.iknowthatsrights.com and go to my great afflilates page and you find some great survey sites. opinion outpost is money, and when you sign up other people you make a $1. surveysavvy is money too and when you sign up someone you get paid and you get paid of surveys they complete

Have you gotten paid from surveysavvy and opinion outpost yet? If so, how long did it take for you to reach cashout? Thanks for your posts.

outpost you check your account and you can cash out when you want. i always wait until i have at least $20. they take about two weeks to send your check. and they are good to becasue they sent me a check, i lost it and they sent me another one. savvy they send checks for some surveys and paypal for others. but they send your money to paypal is a few weeks. them two are my favorites

Yes, they do pay you to read emails. There are many many sites, I have a friend sending me some links tomorrow to check out, if they are good I will send them to you in a pm. There are very few surveys that really pay, but I'll send you the links to them to when I find them. Thanks for responding.

I have made a good amount, couple hundred doing these surveys, its fun at times and sometimes boring but i do it all for the money. I have a website with all the survey companies and also a review of each one so you know exactly which of them pay cash before joining them. www.cashchemist.com

I have made money with NFO mysurvey.com. I have made $10 payout about 5 times over a three year period. I realize this isn't much, but I log in regularly to check for surveys, and make frequent refer a friend referrals.

I actually got an invitation from survey spot. I qualified and did a product test for baby lotion and baby bath and they paid me $200. Yes, I did get the check. Pinecone also pays you $5 per survey and you get neat products to try. The best I ever got from them was some spray cleaner that works with batteries and a digital scale. But the surveys only take a few minutes and you get a check for $5. Bzzagent.com sends no money but products to try. I got a Sonicare toothbrush free from them plus lots of other free products. The key to Greenfield is that you must spend a lot of time taking surveys for nothing to have a better chance at the ones that pay. Hope this helps

I signed up for American Surveys a couple years ago. I did make $8 off of it, now they just enter you into sweepstakes. As far as surveys that is the only one I have ever made real money off of, but no more.

That is discouraging for sure. Maybe someone will post here in this discussion and we'll find some good surveys. Thanks for responding.
