yes some are worth it American consumer Opinion Your2cents Lightspeed Pinecone Research ( my favorite, but so hard to get in ) I have been paid several times by all those listed above so you can go ahead ... I have stopped surveys right now because I found it too much tim ecinsuming though but I did receive several "freebies" to test and then give my opinion, so it s a nice perk

Oh and I forgot to mention they re all free ... if a survey site asks for money RUN!! the best they will do is give you a list of free survey sites!! ... and some won't even do that Goodluck with your surveys

Well it really depends Pinecone is the best $5 for each survey and you are sure that when they send you a survey it IS for you .. you dont have to "qualify'.. but they dont sell many For the other sites you always have that 3-5 min screening questionnaire ... so when you been "screened" 10 tims without qualifying ... it gets tiring lol Good luck

I've tried but I think I lost paitence sometime back because most of the time I can never get the ones that can get you paid. You can try it if you want to. Maybe you'll have better luck than I did. You do have to qualify for the studies though and that can be tough to do so. I can't give you a direct answer but I can say it's not the easiest thing in the world.

Hey Rico my man. Honestly paying for paid surveys is a waste of time. They lie and manipulate. Without a doubth the best survey site right now is Surveyspot.com I just joined about a month and a half ago and already have $35 dollars in my account and I can request payment anytime. It takes a couple weeks for you to get credited for a survey you completed but they send out alot of surveys each and everday mostly $3 dollar ones. Those $3 dollars add up my friend. They have the occasional $10 dollar one as well. They don't do points and always reward you with cash. that's why I love them so much. You will thank me later. I will add you as a friend and give you some more stuff as well.

I take surverys for lightspeed research you earn points for every survery you take and then you can turn in your points for different things. I alway turn my points in for money into my paypal account. Pinecone research is the other survey site that pays me but you have to find a link to their site to join them and you never know where it will be.

yes they do. I have earned over $500 cash this year and also gift certificates as well. Do NOT pay for a survey site. There is many legitimate survey sites for FREE . Sign up with many and only sign up with the ones that actually pay you. Whether it is for cash, points to redeem for cash, gift cards of certificates or points in exchange for merchandise. At least get something for your work.. Stay away from ones that only offer a "chance" or a "drawing" for cash or a prize. Some companies offer both cash incentive and drawings. As long as they offer you cash sometimes I join. Carefully check out each company- history, payout info, are they members of BBB, CASRO, MRA, TrustE, etc. Do your research, it takes time but saves you time and frustration later on. Also stay away from the "survey" companies that only either refer you to other companies or want you to sign up for special offers, these are not really survey companies. Good Luck!!!!

Most survey sites are based around American citizens and you have to live in the USA to be able to do them, I don't so a lot of surveys I can't do or not eligible for. I do a few but they annoy me because some sites, you are give a survey to do, you spend the time filling them out and halfway through they say you are not eligible and that's it nothing! Also some survey sites only give you entries into a prize draw which is like winning the lotto same chances. I have found a couple of sites that accept my country but they are few and far between.

Till now i only tried AW surveys . The minimum payout for that site is 75 dollars and i have just reached 70 dollars , but many of my internet friends say that its just a scam . So be ready to face anything before joining such survey sites.

I haven't tried these ones either. I've always wondered and hoped that they were worth it but have been afraid to risk it. I do the free surveys too. I've gotten a few dollers here and there from surveylion and surveyspot, but they mostly only pay 3 dollars a survey. I'd be interested as well to hear if anyone has tried these programs.

You can also try My View and Buzzback. I've been paid by buzzback plus most of the others mentioned here. Just join and watch you inbox for invites to surveys. You can also go to their sites and check on most of them. Survey Scout used to be free and it was only lists of other survey places. Most of them pay by check, but lightspeed is now paying with pay pal and you can request at $5. Pay is by close of next business day. I just got paid by them too. I'm waiting on a check from survey spot for $23 dollars.
