Which Survey Site Is Your Favorite

United States
October 20, 2009 10:51am CST
There are so many survey sites out there and I'm a member of several. But my all time favorite is Pinecone. I always receive at least 3.00 per survey and all the surveys they send me I'm already qualified for, don't you hate trying to take a survey at some sites and after 5 min it comes up to tell you, you didn't qualify. Another great thing about Pinecone is I'm always paid either the same day I took the survey or the very next day. Two days ago I received a survey that was in two parts. I took the first one, earned 3.00 and then took the second part and earned an additional 10.00. Beat that 13.00 in two days time. I wish they would send me a survey everyday but I guess that's just dreaming. There are times I receive several a week but then it may be a full week after before I get another one. What is your favorite survey site and how much do they pay? How often do you get invites and do you have to qualify first?

The best survey site is globaltestmarket and ciao surveys.

I agree global test market is the best, ciao survey is not good for me. I did receive invitations from global test market regularly and sometimes I completed a survey and sometimes I failed to qualify. But even if I failed I was still credited 5 MarketPoints. Time flew. Then one day I found I had reached 1000 MarketPoints and I was able to redeem the points. Six weeks later I received a letter from Canada. When I opened it I found there was a cheque for £30 inside. Now Global Test Market has replaced the lightspeed site as my favourite survey site.

I would prefer Global Test Market maybe. Because that site sometimes give available survey at my area. Moreover, they're trustworthy and free to join. That's a good site. Maybe this will be helpful.

I agree with you! Pinecone is a fantastic survey site to be a member of. I have subscribed to quite a few others but none of them rival pinecone research. Unfortunately the surveys seem to be arriving less and less but I'm sure that things will pick up again in due course. The other site that pays well, and I love it so much, is My Lot! Well, this was the obvious next choice even though it's not a survey site! Andrew

My favorite is Pinecone Research too- I get what averages to be about $10 dollars a month from them. sometimes more sometimes less. I love how they pay the next day. I just did a survey last night I expect before tomorrow morning I will have been paid. this site is awesome I figured out in the last 15 months -since I joined I have made $168. :)

I've never kept track of how much I've made from them, maybe I should start. Did you get the survey the other day that was in two parts. The total I made was 13.00

No I didn't get that one.. I have had the try some Items at home things. Once I was too late in responding to the follow up survey - the second it didn't seem to work- so I have no idea if I would have gotten more from the follow up survey. I did however get free items that I use.. lol :)

I have two survey sites that i like to participate in the most. one is Inbox Dollars. The other one I like is Send Earnings. you can earn from them by doing surveys and reading emails. i have not been disappointed in their sites. You can also keep track of your earnings at any time with them and there is no fee to join them. Have you tried either of these sites before?

Yes I'm a member of both. Been paid by both too. I like that they send checks. I could cash out my 30.00 at inbox right now but I'm waiting to reach 30.00 at send earnings before I do. 60.00 is so much better than 30.00.

Enjoy your earnings! These two sites have always been good for me as well. Keep up the good work!

I don't live in the U.S. and I find that I don't qualify for a lot of survey sites. I have heard of people making good money from survey sites, but I haven't yet. Yes, I know exactly what you mean about being kicked off after 5 minutes, yes it is irritating.

That's one of the reasons I say Pinecone is my favorite. I am already qualified so I know beforehand I'm going to get paid.

I have heard a lot of good stuff about pineconae/are you a member? If so would you refer me? i do not really care for survey sites but i am a member of saynation and mysurvey.com They are both legit and not to bad.
• United States

Sorry I cannot refer you, Pinecone doesn't work like that. They are hard to get invited to join but if you ever get that invite from them don't hesitate. They are the best in my opinion.

Actually I have an old link that they sent me when they were looking for referrals but you would have to give me your email addy to send it. ANd I am not 100% sure if it would still work as it was last year or early this year that they sent us the emails asking us to refer friends. If you want to try just message me.

I have joined only one survey which is the surveyhead because I don't know any survey sites here. I have earned only $7 in a week and they even told me that I qualify for the next survey but I did not receive any survey yet for a week. What are some surveys that takes more money?
• United States
21 Oct 09
I never qualify for any at survey head so I gave up there. I do have a couple other ones I really like. If you want to pm me I'll need your full name and your e mail address to send you the invitations to join. This is up to you of course as many people don't like giving out that info, which is understandable.

uh.. actually I don't have any good experience in survey sites thing. I have one and it's called surveyhead

I'm a member of survey head too but alas I never qualify for any of the surveys. I finally gave up even trying so now when they send me an e mail I just delete it. I wish I could refer you to Pinecone but they don't work that way. I do however have a couple other sites that are pretty good that I can refer you to. I would need your full name and your e amail address to send you the invitations though. If you want pm me the info, if you don't want to give out that info I understand, it's up to you.

I am a member of a lot of survey sites. Pinecone is a very good one as I always get 4 pounds per survey and you receive payment within about 2 days of doing the survey. They also send you a lot of products to try, so not only do you get 4 pounds for the survey, you get the product free, and then 4 pounds again for the follow up survey. Most others pay in vouchers, I use Valued Opinions, Ipsos, Toluna and a couple of othes. I do get a number of invites where you seem to answer a lot of questions and then it kicks you out saying you have not qualified, but I guess thats how it goes.

Yea, I love to sample the products. Umm, free products to try and money paid for you to try them. Can't beat that!

Hello Kittenclaus, Thats quite a bit from a survey site. How can I get the name of that site or can you refer me?

I haven't been doing survey for very long, so I haven't received any payments yet. But Opinion Outpost has been my favorite ever since I completed a survey work 100 points (=$10.00). Haha. It made me happy. I just requested my check this week, so idk if they pay or not. I also like inboxdollars and CashCrate actually pays a little bit more than InboxDollars for the exact same surveys.

i love to answer surveys but only limited offers are available for me since im not a US citizen. i think it's only good for US citizens since the prizes are like amazon and wallmart certificates which are apparently not here in our area. i just hope i can join the site and earn like you present here.congratulations anyways.

I am a novice to this discussion even,but have got understood and came to the conclusion out of these above comments from others that"there are about 8 such survey sites,which are very authentic "1.Pinecone Survey 1.Globaltestmarket.com 3.Saynation 4.Mysurvey.com 5.Surveyspot 6.Greenfieldonline 7.Ciao 8.Lightspeed and the ninth one is off course the Mylot(not a survey site). Good luck to everyone those who have joined such sites and be hope-full to those who could not make out to such sites including myself.

Pinecone is a good one. I too like that survey site particularly since they are paying aby paypal now. I think my all time favorite is lightspeed though because I have been paid by them several times. My survey is also pretty good. All the ones I participate in I think are legitimate, but some pay more than others and some send more surveys than others. It is easier to reach payout on some more than others.

I would say it is PineCone for me as well. They have consistently paid me after complettion of every survey. I don't get all tha tmany but maybe 1 or 2 a month. It does all add up though since I do get $3 for every survey. I have been with ohter surey companies and they are the best by far. I have been with them for quite some time now, and I will continue to with them as long as they continue to pay me. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

my favorite survey site would have to be pinecone research, because i get about 4 surveys per month and make $3 for each one. another one of my favorite sites will have to be surveyspot, and greenfieldonline. i like them because of the number of survey invitations i receive per month and i am now receiving 5 to 6 surveys that offer cash as a compensation for each survey.

I also love Pinecone. I always know that when I get a survey from them that I already qualify for it. There is no bull**** with them. I love that they have a lot of short surveys too and I know that I'll still make the 3.00 from it. I belong to a bunch of other sites but they are probably my favorite.
