A.W.surveys, anyone?

Philippines
May 8, 2008 10:52am CST
i had my first experience with online surveys when i was starting out in the internet but i dropped out because they are not sending me mails to do surveys anymore. maybe because i am not from the U.S. i tried it again this morning and see how it feels. i have been seeing this site every now and then and i decided to sign in. so far so good. i would just like to see if i can easily reach payout and get my $50 (payout is $75, the $25 goes somewhere because of the electronic transfer to paypal). i would like to know your experiences with the said site. reminder, do not put any links , i do not want to be deleted. i am not getting referrals. this is something i would like to know from people who's been there.

I've never seen anyone say AW Surveys isn't a scam. The best survey sites are Survey Spot, Lightspeed Panel, Your2Cents, & Swatcash for me.

AW Survey is a SCAM!! Don't waste your time there. I'm having more than USD80.00 in AW Survey, they never pay me. It i a scam! Don't use it anymore. Try to use other survey site like Ciao.com, that will be better. I am so sad I'm being cheated by AW Survey.

I tried them out before, I got up in earnings and then they shut down. They came back and everyone who was a member before lost everything. You had to rejoin. I never did. They are on the boycott list at gptboycott.com for not paying members. You might want to check out the site to see the numerous complaints from members there. I hope this helps.

You're quite welcome. Well I know when I first heard about them they were fairly new and that was a year ago. A lot of people recommended them and then they disappeared which made a lot of people upset.

I'm sorry to say I've also heard this was a scam site. I signed up and thought it sounded really terrific but then I started reading things about it here and elsewhere, how you'll never reach payout and if you do they don't pay you anyway. I've got some really good sites I belong to that pay well if you're interested. One where they have surveys and other offers you can do is InboxDollars. I've been paid by them several times and they're really for real. Annie

Don't believe in this website, my friend. In fact I joined it long time ago but soon I found it was only a cheat. At the beginning you can earn big amount in a short time, but later you will find that you can never reach the minimum payout. I love China

I joined A.W. Surveys many months ago. It started like a bang because they give you enough incentive for joining and make you think that you will get lots of surveys and make money fast. Then after that, the surveys hardly come, and your account will crawl and never reach payout. So I don't think they intend to pay people. I also read many negative comments about them being a scam, so I did the wise thing...I stopped logging into my account for many weeks now, and moved on.

Hmm, I'm interested in paying survey sites and must admit I've never heard of this one before, but it does sound a bit worrying if they stop sending you surveys just before you reach payout. I wouldn't do it - and it sounds like you're not going to anyway. I'm wondering where that $25 goes that you mentioned. From the way you describe it it sounds like they're trying to claim it as some kind of PayPal setup/admin charge. This sounds really dodgy for a start as I'm sure there is no such charge for PayPal and I've never heard of any other company asking for this. I think that this alone would put me off, after all it usually takes ages to get to $25 on sites like this, and to see it just eaten up in some hidden charge would really infuriate me! Don't do it!!

The same thing happened with me when I venture out on way of making money. I am also a vivtim of awsurvey. Buddy, don't waste your precious time on this crappy site. Instead of this spent time on mylot and you are sure to get paid. Money making thugh internet take a lot of trial and error but in the end results are great.

I tried AW Surveys and it is no good. I would just stop working with them. They stopped giving me ANY surveys before I reached my payout. It just stopped, I never got paid anything I earned...which was around 20 or 30 dollars.

No, i don't believe that AW Surveys pays their members. Or you can correct me on this if you have been paid. Their FAQ are not reliable . Have you know person who have been paid?

The first two weeks it AW survery was very good. They gave a couple of sites to review and gave $6 for each. The remaining sites were worth about $4 or $2 I think. When I reached $26 they stopped sending me sites to review. I waited for a month and decided to dump it in the bin. Such a waste of time.

I tried the survey thing but when i answer the simple questionare they always tell me that they don't have anything that fits my status and that has made me real mad. If your don't fall under the type of people that they want to ask the questions they will tell you not at this time and i have ran into alot of those. What one's are you on?
