Surveys or Bust.

I tried to make money on the internet in many ways. But I hear so, much about doing surveys that, not only have I tried them, but I keep going back to them. But... because of their perspective on "family," I never get any surveys to fill out. You see, I'm single with no children. I am an Aunt to 20 neices and nephews and a Great Aunt to 4. I love to spoil them in everyway. But surveys don't see that. I don't fill out forms on surveys to do anymore. I figure that it's probably a waist of time. I just wish that I had the same chance as anyone else. You can write me and tell me that I'm wrong. You can even say; "so, what!" You may even tell me to lie (I thought about this too). But surveys only have "a family structure" in mind. (Husband, wife and children). Is there a job online that you have tried for, only to be denied because of their perspective on an issue?

I'm single and have no children, but I still do surveys. Yes, I get bounced out of many, but I keep doing those that don't bounce me. I make several hundred dollars each year doing a variety of surveys.

I think you're quite wrong. The survey sites have to represent a cross section of the population. This would include single people.

Well I'm single how come I'm always denied? you say that surveys represent a cross section of the population implying that everyone still has an equal chance to earn from them. and maybe your right some surveys might be more universal but most surveys I've done are intended for those who are married or have small children I've done quite a few and 95% of the time I'm denied, so whats up with that?

I'm an aunt too, but I'm not married and right now I have no children of my own, I've tried surveys but like you I'm usually denied, in fact I did a topic on survey discrimination a way back I think it was almost a year ago. anyway I think that the survey sites should be a bit more fair and liberal with there surveys qualification's. I think that everyone should have an equal opportunity no matter if your single married or have children because we're all consumers of somthing meaning we all buy products daily weekly or monthly not just moms and sometimes I feel like a mom because I have mother like responsibility's I aid in taking care of someone close to me, and its not fair that these survey sites ask you to put your personal info in and then after answering all there questions, sorry you did not qualify and your denied thats just dosent seem fair or right. I think people should be paid just for participating in surveys but of course there not. so I prefer to avoid doing too many surveys because I dont like to waste my time on somthing I wont be qualified for, unless the site informs me that I'll still recive somthing just for the effort, right now the only survey site I'm still active on is inbox dollars because they allow there members to earn just for reading emails so if I dont qualify oh waite let me rephrase that WHEN I dont qualify I can still get paid. also I use other programs and sites to earn pocket change I just dont like the hassle and disappointment of doing surveys.

I would reccommend Toluna - I am not sure if it is just for the U.S. or not. Toluna used to be greenfield online. I have been with them almost a year and make pretty good money.

I understand what you mean. I have aslo signed up for survey sites but I do not get a fair chance like everybody else because I live outside the US and also I am single. Duh they should at least give us a chance and see the quality of the surveys that we post. Yes I feel it has been a waste of time. by the way I deleted all my accounts in survey sites.
