There are many sites out there that claim you can earn real cash for doing servays, but this isn't a realistic way to earn money. While there are some out there that are legit, the reality is they don't pay that much, and are not a subistute for a part-time or full-time job, either working-from-home or outside the home. But, as long as you know what to avoid... you should be fine earning a few bucks here and there. But, keep in mind it can take quite a long time to earn much of anything for this line of work. When searching for a servay site, avoid adds that claim that you'll make 100's of dollars/mont with little to no work. That's not true and is a scam. While there are guinine companies out there willing to pay servey-takers, they may pay a dollar at best... often less at max maybe (if you're lucky) five dollars per servay. And, quite often you have to go through dozens of screens of volontary, but personal information as well as inviting spam to your inbox. So keep this in mind. One site that will earn you chunck change is bigspot.com Before you sign up, they warn you in advance, it's no way to earn a real honest living. Only some pay actual cash while others simply use a points system and you trade points for goods services and other offers. So, I wouldn't advise in a servey-taking job as a stable source of income.

tanks so much for your response, very useful, i received an email that offers more than 150 dollars every week and up until 1000 dollars per week but they ask you 5 dollars to sign-up and days after they will charge you 70 dollars more, so it sounds fishy to me so i just ignore it, i wish i can have a one to earn this kind of money .

Try Global Test Market, its a very well reputed international survey company. I have already been paid $50 by them by cheque. Every survey you complete scores you points ranging between 5-40, sometimes even more. After you accumulate 1000 points, these are converted to $50 dollars and the cheque sent to you by post. Only thing is, it depends upon your profile information on how frequently you get surveys, sometimes depending upon target group, age and demographics too influence whether you get to complete the survey or not. But this is the best survey site that I have seen so far. Another survey site is Toluna which is also well reputed and legitimate site, but they don't pay cash, but the points are converted to online shopping vouchers. In this too I have been paid INR 1200 worth of vouchers so far.

I had joined a number of online survey sites, but unfortunately, they have not been ways of making money for me. Every time a I take a survey, at some point down the road, a message will come up saying that I am not qualified. Very disappointing , and it has been just a huge waste of time for me.

yes that's true. I tried to join some survey sites and in the end after you sign up and complete the task or survey they will send you an email. When you tried to access the site or the email it would say your not qualified. They just wasting my time. They usually dont pay you.

I'm into 2 survey sites that had already paid me at least twice. One of them is only available within singapore, but surveys don't come in often. The other i'm on would be Globaltestmarket. IT's an international site and surveys are coming in on a regular basis. U can try it out. There are times u might be screened out from those surveys but it's all right, u will be credited with some points as well.

In the past I was a member of a couple of survey sites and one of them paid me, but it was a very slow way to earn. I received several surveys, but as soon as I answered the first questions I usually received a message saying that I didn't qualify for that survey. I felt that I wasted a lot of time a that way, because every time I didn't quality for a survey I didn't earn anything. It took me more than half a year to earn $5. On the other survey sites I never received any surveys at all. In the beginning I logged in pretty often to see if there were any surveys, but after a while I lost my patience and left those sites. Today I don't use survey sites anymore.

I think it differs on the country you reside in. I live in Asia and I seldom receive notifications from the paid surveys that I had joined. That's why I gave it up. When I transfer to Australia perhaps, then I'll start joining paid surveys once more.hihihihi...
