Does anyone use this survey site?

When I started looking at my options to make money online, I signed up for a whole bunch of survey sites. It got very tiring and half of the time I didn't qualify for the survey anyway. Or they wanted me to sign up for a service in order to get the payment. I unsubscribed from almost all of them. Yesterday I found one that looks a little different. Does anyone do surveys for your2cents.com? If so, is it working well for you? Are there any others that are cash payment only...that you don't have to keep signing up for more and more survey sites? I know that doing surveys won't make me rich and I have to wait until they send me invitations to participate. . .but at this point, every little bit helps.

Like you I signed up for loads of survey sites and either they never paid up or just as I reached the point where I could cash out they stopped sending me surveys. I have 19 survey companies that I am not likely to get anything from. I think all they want is your email address so they can sell it on to the hundreds of people that I have never heard of that email me every day. One of them admitted they had paid for my details but wouldn't stop sending me spam even though I asked them to several times. I had to change email addresses in the end. If anyone knows of any that actually pay up I would be interested as well.

I have been paid by a good number of survey sites and the other ones I am still waiting for payout. Chrisken you probably joined one of those "offer" survey sites, gpt sites usually have them as offers.... some of these sites include: Winning Surveys, Survey Networks, Surveys For Fun, Moolah Surveys, Net panel, and Consumer Beat ..... DO NOT JOIN THESE IF YOU DON"T WANT SPAM!!! They constantly send you "surveys", and it seems like you can never get them to stop sending you stuff. I to had to change my email address, now I just use th old one for spam stuff. If you are interested in REAL survey sites, that actually pay and don't refer you to tons of other survey sites, you may want to check out my blog: http://www.blogcharm.com/Surveys .... There is also a survey panel for kids ages 5-18 if you know anyone that may be interested in joining, I have not recieved payment from them because I am too old to join, lol. I have had a lot of success with SurveySpot, I have almost $100 pending in my account and have been paid once by them($28). It also depends on your demographics if you qualify for a survey, some are looking for more of a certain age, race or income level than others. Also if anyone wants to join Pinecone Research I know where a working link is, just add me and send a message asking for it if you want it. (I can't post the link here since it is agaist the TOS's of Pinecome Research). Good Luck!

I have had the same problem as you with these survey sites and as yet i haven't earned anything at all. They just give you points to win money and I really think it is the donkey and the carrot approach. I get very few surveys that I qualify for and have made no money at all, so if you are earning anyhting it is certainly more than me. I have never heard of your2cents.com but I would imagine it would be like all the others. Good luck, maybe our ships will come in soon.....ha ha.

Yea that is true some of the survey sites I was a member with switched from cash to points and sweepstakes, which I really didn't like so I canceled most of the accoutns that took me forever to reach anything. I mainly join the survey sites that actually pay you cash or have a good point ratio, if I can redeem my points for cash or prizes thats okay with me. But if they give me surveys for 20 points each and you need 5000 points to cash out, screw that, it will take for ever. Googling works a lot with finding which sites are good adn which ones are a waste of time. I'm sorry to hear you don't qualify for a lot of them, I hate when that happens. Sometimes they look for specific groups of people, sometimes I am in that group and otehr times I am not.

I actually signed up with 2cents.com, and yesterday they sent me a survey on Wing Street I spend 15 minutes doing the survey then sorry you are not qualify. I would advise you not to waste your time. I have come to the realization most of these survey sites are a waste. If I am not qualify for the survey, why let me do half of the survey.

I hate when that happens. Survey Spot is famous for doing that.At least with GlobalTest you know right away if you don't qualify. For me if I spend 15 minutes doing a survey pay me for it!

This is a legititmate site. However my two favorites are surveyspot and opinionoutpost. I have made over four hundred dollars with surveyspot and about ninety with opinionoutpost in a year and a half. Both of these sites are free to join and you make money by only filling out surveys. I once got a invitation to a focus group but i have never had to complete offers to get cash on these sites.

I believe I signed up for that site but I haven't done anything with it so I can't say if it is good or not. Some survey sites seem easier then others.

Yes I do those- Your2cents surveys- A lot of times I do not qualify for theirs either- but it is quick – then send you e-mail alerts- Most of the surveys pay well- I think I have one in my box for $10-- I have done several of those- I also do pinecone research- You have to be invited to do those—and they all pay $5 per survey it gets mailed out right after- I also do Bzzagent—you get to test product for them- and then earn points for prizes- Its fun- and Surveyspot- this is a cash one also- although most of them are now for entries into cash drawings- I delete those and only do the cash ones- Hope this helps!

That is a very good survey site I have made almost $50 there. I never sign up for the ones who want you to complete offers. I belong to about 200 survey sites. I have been doing them for a couple of years now. I don't make a lot but as you said it is helpful

I happen to stumble across a professional and decent paid survey website. If you're interested, give me a mail at lilynnie@gmail.com. Will reply with a link for you to join. But do remember to fill up the profile survey which takes a little time. It will enable you to get more surveys coming your way.

If you are interested in a decent and professional paid survey, do mail me at lilynnie@gmail.com. I'll pass you a link. Its suitable for international surfers. It is nothing like AW surveys. Like I said, its decent and professional.

I never sign up with those before but I heard it is a scram so becareful with information that you put in. I know some sites are good and pay you well tho, but i never take a chance. Also, i hate to fill out my information to someone that i dont know... so i dont take a risk

you are correct, i have been months to get a genuine survey site and registered in almost all free survey sites that are available for international participation,and Some of them do send me surveys. like that of surveyscout, Acop,biglook,and many more.. After nearly/finishing the surveys i get messages flashed, "sorry, you have not qualified for the survey" The requisite criteria, not met" or, in some cases, i get messages, Thanks for participating in surveys. But till date no payment i have received. Therefore, nowadays i have just started to delete the mails received informing me about the survey available.

I dont like survey sites hmm. I have your2cents membership but i cancelled it last week because i did not earn anything eventhough i do lots of answering surveys. And also i dont like them to call me in the house offering something i dont want it. I guess i will cancel my other survey sites too.

I had similar experiences with survey sites. What is really annoying is when you are partway through and then you are told you do not qualify. I have never been paid from a survey site and don't do them anymore. Perhaps there are people on Mylot who have had good experiences and will point you to sites that pay. As you said it won't make you rich but if you can find some that pay all the better. And remember never pay for a list of survey companies. You can get them for free on the internet.
