What surveys or should I say survey companies have you received surveys from that you have qualified for lately? I have been doing ok with Opinion Outpost and Lightspeed. Once in a while I'll get one from Pinecone and Opinion Place that I qualify, but not nearly as often as I used to. What about everyone else? Have you had a specific company that you have been qualifying more or less for recently than in the past?

I always like doing surveys for Global Test Market. I manage to qualify for almost all of them and usually their pretty interesting and not all that long. The other thing I like about GTM is that they tend to pay a decent amount per survey, and give you more money for longer surveys that you have to complete. The last couple surveys that I completed were for electronics/movies and I think one had to deal with brands of beverages that I tend to drink? Being busy with work I never really get a chance to do surveys anymore, but there an interesting way to kill twenty minutes or so when you have nothing else to do.

Once in a blue moon, I qualify for one with Global Test Markets. I seem to get one or two a week, but don't check the emails quick enough. Maybe that's why I usually don't qualify. Although, I have received one $50 check from them this year. And you're right, they do seem to pay pretty well for each survey, so it is worth the effort. Thanks for your response in this discussion, and have a great day!

I joined Light speed too. I can get their invitations regularly and rarely failed. I really enjoyed the website. I also joined Global market. at beggining I was failed a lot, but it seems improving a lot recently. I also have memberships in Opinion world and mysurvey.com. These two are good, maybe you can search and join in.

Hi sblossom, and thank you very much for responding to this discussion. I really enjoy taking surveys on the internet. Especially if you get to take a sneak peak at some product. I am a member of mysurvey.com, but do not have very much luck with them. I have tried numerous different online money making programs throughout the last 11 years. However, I am not familiar with Opinion World. I guess I will have to check them out. Do you have a referral link on your profile that I can use? If not, feel free to PM me a referral link. I like to help out friends when it comes to joining new programs. And since you are the one telling me about it, you should get credit. Thanks again, and have a great day!

Thank you very much. Unfortunately the website I suggested you has no referal rewards. If you don't mind you can visit my website. I wrote an article about valued opinions entitled a well-paid survey website. You can have a big picture about the website. Best regards to you. Wish we can keep in touch.

Sounds like a plan. I'll pop over to your profile and see if you have your web site listed on there. I am always willing to help out my friends here on myLot. I want to check out the picture that you have as your avatar anyway. Is that Stonehinge? That's one place that I have always wanted to visit. I travel a lot, but I tend to keep most of my travels here in the U.S. However, I did intend to make it to Europe some day!

I was doing great with both of those for the last 2 years. LIghtspeed supplied my current stock of box sets from my favorite TV shows from the 70's and 60's! Now, come first of this year.. they are few and far between that I get notified of. I think they don't really care about what people over 50 think about anything.. we aren't a "target" demographic area anymore! DOn't know why else.. I responded to every one ever sent and now they aren't sent much!

I'm not sure if you are old enough to qualify for the Baby Boomer generation, but if so, they most certainly should be asking what you think. There are a number of companies that are out there trying to figure out what they can do for that generation because they feel they are the ones with the most disposable income in this day and age. Glad to here that you were able to get some box sets with your income earnings. Sounds like it's just fluff to you. LOL Thanks again for your response and have a beautiful day!

At 52 I don't know if that makes me a baby boomer or not... but fluff? Definately not fluff....it was an income to me. It paid my household utilities every month for over a year... until it dwindled for no apparent reason. I"d much rather get the cash, but the only ones that "credit" now only pay in Amazon.com gift cards. So I bought hte DVD sets and now have canceled my cable tv as I don't watch enough to pay for that every month. No, definately not fluff

I guess that explains it. I didn't mean to offend you in anyway by calling it fluff. I know we all wished we had some fluff money in these economic times there isn't much of that going around. I did receive a KeyNote Evaluations survey today, and they pay in Amazon gift cards. That was only the second one I had gotten from them all year. I usually qualify for them, but I think they do some type of prequalification before they even send out the surveys. Thanks again and I hope you enjoy the day.

I used to do at least 1 survey a day but haven't completed a survey in about a month. It is very frustrating when you don't qualify and if takes usually 5 or 10 until you qualify for one.

It seems like I go back and forth with it. I'll have spells where I tend to qualify for almost all the surveys I get for a few days in a row. But I also have the opposite, many days where I get a number of surveys that I don't qualify for. And when you have already answered enough question for it to have seemed like the survey should be over, then they tell you that you don't qualify, it is really irritating. I just try to stay positive, and remember....myLot always pays. LOL Thanks for your response and have a great day myLotting!

I try too... but lately.. have gotten rather disgusted... I will take the survey and work it for 10-15 minutes... only to be told I don't qualify for the survey! I mean... come on! I spend 15 minutes answering a gazillion detailed questions only to not qualify? What the heck are they looking for? I think some have gotten to be scams as I am sorry, but to not qualify after so many detailed questions are answered and so much time spent...there's got to be something not right about it. I have been doing surveys for about 3 years now...used to qualify for every single one all the time.. now...hardly any. Yeah I turned over 50, and it could be that they don't want that age targeted, but age is one of the very first questions asked and often asked twice so that can't always be the reason.. oh well..I still try!

I believe after so many questions, that they should not be able to say that you don't qualify. I could see if you said something at one point, and then changed it later on and it was a cut and dry question. But when you are filling out a survey, you get to a certain point, and you think alright I think I actually qualified for this one. After that point, they should not be able to kick you out. I have had it happen to me a number of times too. So it doesn't have anything to do with your new age! Thanks for your response, and have a great day myLotting!

Have been qualifying more for the GloalTestMarket surveys and with Lightspeed, it depends on how quick I do the survey when it's sent... PineCone are a bit quiet lately... I always qualify for those..

PineCone Research has a been a bit quiet for me too marina321. Maybe we are in the same demographic group that they don't want. Just kidding there. I hope to start qualifying for more surveys in the future. I try not to belong to too many survey companies, but you have to go with whoever is going to send you a paycheck, right. Thanks for your response in this discussion and have a great day!

The one survey company that has consistently given me surveys and paid me is pinecone. I have benn with them for quite awhile and I have always been paid a few days after completion of he surveys. That is my favorite one, and the one I have been with the longest. I get survey from greenfield, however, most of the surveys I am not qualified for. I have been with for awhile too, and I am disapointed in them as I just haven't made all that much with them like pinecone. Well, good luck to you and happy mylotting.

I have had pretty good luck with PineCone Research in the past, but have only qualified for one in the past month or so. I guess they just all come in spurts. You never can tell which ones you are going to qualify for. I was really glad when they started the drawing when you don't qualify for surveys. At least you have a chance to win something! Thanks for your response in this discussion. I hope you have a great day!

My most favorite survey sites regarding on how often I'm qualified for their invitation will be : surveys.com and netverdix. I rarely fail for those two. And surveys.com invited me 3-6 times a month with $ 1- $ 5 reward. That's nice for an international member. I believed you as a US citizen will get more invitation Kykidd

Yes, you are right. I do receive a few more invitations. I guess most of the survey companies must mainly focus on the United States. You would think that there would also be a number focus groups in Europe. But, I guess the U.S. just has more. Thanks for your response in this discussion lusirafa. And have a great day!

The only surveys that I get any more is from Light Speed; well, ones that I actually qualify for. For some reason, becoming self-employed and/or a student really hurt in the number of surveys I get and qualify for. Now, if I was still a manager of a business employing others, I imagine that I would still be getting a lot of surveys that I qualified for. And because I can't afford the latest electronics, that does not help me either. Cheers.

Hey, Mogandrake, and thanks for your response in this discussion. I think it's funny how different situations seem to be common when it comes to what type of surveys that you qualify for. But I guess it's just the type of people that use the product they are sending the survey out to. Then again, I don't think that being self employed should hender you. If anything, you would think it would make them more interested in your opinion. Good luck to you in the future. Have a great day!
