Ii did a week long study for a university. All I had to do was great a little note on their site before bed each night. Then after 7 days do a short survey. I got $30 in my paypal. I am happy cause I am trying to save up money in the paypal to get a hard to find gift my son wants on e-bay. The highest I ever got paid for survey was an online discussion that lasted about 45 minutes and I got $50 in my paypal. What was the biggest payout for a survey you got and what did you have to do to get it?

There are things I like about paypal and things I don't. I like being able to use it online as I have no credit cards. I do have it linked to my bank account so I can deposit it into my bank. I like receiving the money fast too. But the things I don't like about it is that they charge a lot of fees to withdrawal to bank. Also if I purchase something through paypal but I don't have enough in there to cover the amount, they will take the rest from my bank, which is handy but there is a ten day hold when that happens. So if I buy something from e-bay the seller don't get the money until ten days. Yet paypal takes it out of my bank in two days. Many sellers want payment by 7 days and they hold the item until payment is made. So basically they take it is two but the seller doesn't send item out for another 8 more days. So receiving item takes a lot longer. Also fees fees fees. To many fees! If I had something better that I can connect to bank account and many places accepted I would leave paypal. Too much fees!

Greenfield WOW, All I ever got from them was a survey for a buck and sweeps. It was funny when I had the check at the bank and deposited the dollar. They said it cost more for the check. LOL Congrats Pattie

That is so wonderful. May I know which website provides so good payment? I just got RMB200 (about USD27) from a website after I finished many surveys online from it.

You have had a good payout on your surveys. For me the highest payout has been 10 dollars which i recieved from acop for a 30 minute survey. Another payment of the same amount is pending and i am likely to receive it any time now.

As yet I haven't gotten paid for any surveys yet. I'm looking for good places that actually pay, preferably places that pay Canadians, although I do have accounts established in the USA too, since I live there part time. Good for you!

Thanks danishcanadian, you are lucky to be at both places, can get all the US freebies and coupons too. There are more there than here. Have you checked out yellowsurveys.ca they have lots of sites listed there. If you use roboform sign up is pretty quick.
