YouGov

I'm really surprised there is only one other thread on this, and it's not very popular at all! Yet this is one of the best survey sites around so I thought I'd post and let you know about it... It works in most countries, and although the price will vary, it's nearly always £1 per survey in the UK so it adds up quickly. http://my.yougov.com/go.aspx?id=778604c9-6012-46b3-b38c-d3d79f84edd9

I'll take a look at it - I've joined a lot of survey sites, but as said the payout is high but £1.00 is quite a lot of money per survey.

I used to join every single one I found but since I got my new email address I just join the ones that I know are genuine/have a high amount of money per suvey. It's a pain in the butt trying to earn 1p per survey or something!

lol, yea it is for sure!! Good idea though - I might just get a new email for surveys and stuff and not join too many.

The day somebody is willing to recommend a survey company without posting an affiliate link is the day I sign up for them. Sorry, but I find that most people find they can't reach payout and so they go around praising a site just to get a little commission. This rule of mine might be a little strict, but it helps weed out all the garbage and spam you can end up with in your inbox.

Take a look to the right of the sign up fields. It has a list of countries and how to sign up if you reside there.

I've become quite disillusioned with YouGov. The payout is so high and they never ever send me surveys any more! The few I've had over the last year or so have all been 50p ones. It's still better than a lot of the ones out there, but I'm wondering if I'll ever make payout!

I agree that the payout is high and it will take a while to get to. I get surveys quite often and I figure even though it may take ages, they are worth doing as when that cheque for £50 comes through your door you'll be glad you took the time!

Yougov is only for the very patient as it takes forever to get to £50. I've been a member for nearly a year and have the grand sum of £9. True you get the minimum of 50p a survey, sometimes £1 but it's only by invite so you could get nothing for months. There is a prize draw survey which ranges from £10 to I think £100 once. Join if you're not in a hurry but otherwise don't bother btw the surveys don't take long to complete.
