I have made 50 dollars for one survey and got 20 dollars in the mail today.

July 20, 2008 1:40am CST
I have been doing surveys on the internet for a little over a year. I have gotten some in the mail and some by telephone. Last month I got a survey asking me some questions about how I felt when I was at home and how I felt when I was at work. Then the person on the phone asked me if I would be willing to answer a survey that would take 45 minutes on the phone and they would pay me 50 dollars. I said heck yes. I made the appointment for my return call. The appointment was made for three weeks in advance. The following week I got a packet in the mail with a ruler, a booklet with severing sizes and a check for 50 dollars. The check went straight to the bank. I took the survey and earned my 50 dollars, I was on the phone answering questions for 45 minutes. I got to keep the ruler and the chart with food severing sizes. I have continued to do surveys on the computer. I go an email to participate in a survey that would last a year. It is one on investments. The person who set up the survey gave me 362 fake dollars to divide into four different types of investments. I then get an email once a week to tell me if I have made money or lost money. The investments are bonds, stocks, money market and an index fund. If you log on once a week for 52 weeks you get an extra 52 dollars. If your investments make money then you get 362 dollars + 52 dollars at the end of the year + a 20 dollars sign up bonus. I got my 20 dollar sign up bonus today in the mail. It have been researching these types of investments and learning about them. So far I have made 1.32 dollars. I did lose some money the first week. In the bonds I lost a few percentages but I think I will let it go and watch and see what will happen. I can change my percentage of money alloted to each category each week.I am sure they are looking to see if people change their allotments when they start losing money or if they wait and see what happens. I have the bulk of my fake dollars in the money market. I have made the most money there so far.Time will tell what happens. So far this year I have made over 100 dollars on surveys. Has anyone else else made 50 dollars or mor on one survey? What type of surveys are you doing? Do you like to make the little extra money doing surveys?

The most I have made on surveys is $25.00 which is not much but the survey was interesting. I don't have the patience to do the lenghty surveys but I do the short ones for $5.00.

Some get so boring. I think of myself "Is this ever going to end." I do like the ones with a counting bar so you know how much longer you have. I do not like the ones that keep going and going and going.

I answer the questions honestly. I am a member of several survey sites so the chances are better that I fit the demographics they are looking for. Some days I get a lot of offers to do the surveys and I do not meet any of the criteria so it is a waste of time.

The most I have ever made from one survey was $40. It sounds like a pretty interesting site. Could you please send me the link to it? I am always looking for new sites to join. I am already a member of several different survey sites and they pay pretty well but nothing compared to what you are making.

The 50 dollar payment was a phone call. They called me out of the blue. The 20 dollar one was the same thing they called me. It is from a college. Both payouts where studies from colleges. I will have to wait and see if I get the full 362 dollars plus the extra 52. I am member of adpaid which I have made almost 20 dollars since May here is the link http://adpaid.com/pages/index.php?refid=teapotmommerced

hello, congrats for your earning. i have joined various survey sites a week ago and till then i have earned $4 but i havenot received it yet due to a minimum payout limit.but i am seeing a bright future in it. i have joined about 6 survey sites, and am on the way to join more survey sites. however there is a flood of scam sites on the net, which don't pay the users there hardly earned money. i am working hard to find the real list of the scam sites, but if anyone know the scam site directory then please post it.

I have taken part in survey for the last 6-8 months. So far my earning is only 14$. I think the survey sites prefer people from USA/Canada/UK and so on. Very few sites work in India. If there is any list of such sites it would be very helpful for me.

One of these days you will get the survey sites in India. You spend money just like we do, you eat and do laundry like we do so whats matters if it is geared to what I buy or what you buy? Good luck my friend

I have done surveys in the past and have never collected any money so I stopped doing them. I received points, but they never amounted to anything. I did it for a few months, but got frustrated. I don't know what I was doing wrong. I really need a way to make some money. I would really like to talk with you and get some more information and be able to ask you some questions directly. I would like to friend you so that I can pm you. I hope that this will be ok with you. Thanks, Opal

I wish we have surveys that pay here in my country... or international surveys that pay that are available in my country... i signed up for a lot of them... but i don't qualify to most of them because of my race or my nationality... and that sucks... so i think you are very lucky...

Thanks I do think I am lucky. I did not realize that they do not do surveys in other countries.

Gee you are doing really well on surveys. I have not had such good luck as that, I wish I could find really good paying ones, then I might do more of them. All the ones I get just want info and halfway through they tell me I'm not eligable for the survey, so it kind of gets me down, as I feel they are cheating me.

I will tell you I have run into to that a lot. I think to myself I have passed the eligible point and the next question it shuts down on me.

Yup. I earned a $50 cheque a couple of months ago for a follow up to a survey I took. It was completely painless and I got the cheque the next week. Quite nice. I'm not as active in the survey world asyou seem to be, but I was pretty tickled with that. The money game you're playing now reminds me of the game we used to play in high school. Lots of fun! Congrats and I wish you continued success with your online earnings!

I don't do very good with surveys. They end up saying I am not qualified to take the survey. So I still do the surveys because I like them but so far I have not been lucky enough to get paid that much for a survey. Of course I have never done a telephone survey.

They called me out of the blue. I was lucky to get the money when I did. A friend needed the money so I was able to lend it to her without it coming out of my budget. When she was able to pay me back I needed the money so it worked out great.
