I've been playing around with Amazon MTurk recently. I've managed to make enough money to buy myself a new stereo, which feels like an achievement! I wrote a blog about my thoughts and research on Squidoo: www.squidoo.com/my-tips-for-earning-from-mechanical-turk What's the most that anyone has made on MTurk in a day?

I've been with mturk a long time, so I can't say the most ever - I know I once got lucky and got an honest $10 hit (they wanted someone to design a wikipedia page for their company that wouldn't get deleted) so probably that day was. But the most this year was $12.21.

My record is $19.41, but generally I make $5-$10. It depends what hits are on there, doesn't it?

I generally average about $5 a day depending on the hits available, but lately I have been getting closer to $10.

It varies so much for me. If there are a lot of academic surveys, I can average $10.00 in a day, but right now it's been hanging around $6.00 a day I got really lucky about a week ago and managed to grab one of those "Foreign Names" study HITs that paid $20.00, but those kind of HITs are few and far between.

Yes, most of the high payers are scams!

I left the site after applying for my first payment of $50 by cheque,I think now also that amount is in my account.Mine was only $4 in a day from that site.Nowadays the works also became hard.

I do writing hits that pay $1 - $2 dollars each. Half a dozen of them most days.

I just started this the other day, I only see offers for .03 cents per hit! so it would take forever to make 10$ a day! is there something I don't know??

I am a really big fan of the Mturk site. Most days I am able to earn a pretty decent amount, however, about 2 months ago there was one day that I earned a total of $87 working on the site. It actually took me only about 7 hours to make it, so it was pretty goof earnings actually. I have had several days close to that amount since then, but none wuite that high again. I am pleased with what I am able to make on the site each day however.
