paid surveys

I am frustrated. It seems like I go to the paid survey sites and of course they are free and they give me links to more pad survey sites and so on and so on and so on. And then the ones that are free you have to sign up for a subscription and then do a survey on how the sign up process was. You get a dollar for that survey but to earn that dollar you have to keep your membership to the subscription past the trial period. Is anyone else having the same issues that I am? Or does anyone actually have a legite site that pays you for surveys?

i have a plan for everyone to earn 300$ extra per month.yes that true and does not require any investment .toearn money online i recomended to join all the survey panels that are available in your country.if you join 20 survey panels and each day you get 3-5 surveyof 2-5 each then you can easily make 300$ extra per month.thousands of people are earning money online taking paid online survey.and people whodont believe are the who losing the money on the table .join legitimate paid survey and get paid for surveys.

hi , I have been on two survey sites and they have paid me in past and i never had to buy any thing from them or pay them anything. If you are from USA then you got much more choice. I am on CIAO surveys and global test marketing. Global test marketing pays by cheque and ciao dont pay cash but give you vouchers to buy online from one site. so i prefer global test than ciao.

Opinion Outposts has been the most rewarding site in my opinion. The site that you are describing sounds more like a GPT site rather than a survey site. Survey sites are designed to only send you surveys that don't involve any trial offers at all. They just are simply looking for your valid opinion, and they ask lots of questions.

I agree with some of the people that responded to your post. Greenfield online is the best I am in. I have made 37 dollars since I joined 2 months ago. They paid me thru paypal. Check it out. Happy mylotting!

Like one user mentioned, pinecone researdh is a good paying site. I have been paid by that site aftet completion of every survey. They are truly legit and the best survey site out there. I have been with them for quite some time now, and I intend to stay with them, as they pay $3 per survey through paypal. I highly reommend them, as you will always be qualiified for every survey, and will get paid for every one. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

I have sorted through several survey sites just like the ones you mentioned which aren't exactly survey sites and just like the other responders, I love Pinecone research because the surveys don't take forever and they pay quickly to my Paypal. For the best FREE information about surveys and survey site links for people from all over the world, type in the word Annikas in your search engine. She runs a wonderful site that explains all about the good sites, warns you against the bad and also provides the links. You can sign up for Pinecone there. The site also has information about other work too and it's the best and most current information available for no cost. She has put an enormous amount of work into her site. I just ran into her website by accident and I'm really glad I did.

It sounds like the sites that you're doing surveys for are really variations on the typical GPT site, not actual research companies. GPT sites pay members to complete offers by signing up for trials of products. They make their money from the affiliate commissions generated by those sign ups, where real research companies are paid by companies to conduct marketing research and pass on monetary incentives to their members. Like the poster above said, Pinecone Research is supposed to be one of the best companies to do surveys for on the internet. I haven't been lucky enough to spot one of their banners yet, but I haven't ever heard a single negative thing about them. Most of the surveys I take are through Greenfield Online. It can take a bit for the incentives to credit to your account--they wait until the total number of responses they need has been reached before they release the incentives--but I've never had a problem getting paid by them. I do wind up getting disqualified every once in a while, but that usually happens within a minute or two. I've never gotten 10 minutes into screening questions and been disqualified.
