Ciao Surveys and Ciao Reviews, which one is better?

From the beginning of participation in that two, I questioned myself that which type of Ciao is better. The reason is because when you write reviews you earn $1 each and when you take part in surveys you also earn almost that amount (from $0.93) and sometimes more (last time I got a survey that gave me $7). Also, the amount of time you spend on both is roughly equal. You take 20 mins for one survey and you write a review in 25 mins (for good preparation). Only one thing is different that writing reviews requires much more time and you have to edit them as well in order to make a high quality review. So how about your opinion. You focus particularly on either Surveys or Reviews or you make a good combination of them? Which Ciao you prefer?.

Hi, I just joined Ciao a few days ago and was wondering about something. How can you actually do those surveys? I thought that they would send you them to your email but I haven't received any emails from them so far. And didn't they just lower the price for reviews from 1$ to 0.25?

Hi Takashy, the Ciao surveys are separated from review. You have to register in order to do surveys. About writing reviews I heard some people said that it's back to normal payment for each review now that is $1. Ciao just explained that was a technical problem and they fixed it. Enjoy.

Now Ciao doesn`t pay 1 $ per review. They reduced it to 0.25 cents per review. Now I think you can choose))) By the way what is the ciao surweys? I don`t know about it. Is it for international users too?

In the previous rely post, I said I heard people said their balance is back and they are not deducted any amount. There was a technical problem on Ciao but now it's ok and Ciao is still paying at $1 per review. Ciao surveys are actually belonging to Greenfieldonline and I thought both are the same. I guess they only provide surveys to some countries such as UK, US, Canada or Australia then if you are an International user you may not take part in surveys.

They paid back that money which they souldn`t have reduced. The reduced the previous earning s of users and that was wrong. And they turned the money back. But now, you get only 0.25 dollars per review and it is announced

Oh It's really confusing. Some people say it's really paying at rate of $.25 and others say it still pays $1 each review.

I had problems signing up with greenfield. When they ask me to select my geographic location, they kept refresh to US. The registration page doesn't allow me to choose my country as well. Anyone had the same experience?

I believe Ciao survey are Ciao UK, right? If you are earning that amount in surveys then I would say that you go on with it because Ciao US already reduced it's per review rate to 0.25 cents. In my side, I don't have any experience with surveys rather to say I did not bother myself engaging that activity because most of it has geographical limitations and only a few survey in a certain country. So far, I am doing will each day.
