hey there guys, i just became member of different paid to answer surveys just few weeks ago. i'm really bothered until now because there are no surveys that are available for me to answer. i hope those survey sites are not some kind of scam. i registered to surveyhead, surveyscoutresearch,and globaltestmarket. and until now, i don't receive surveys for me to answer even though i always check my account everyday.. are you answering surveys too?? how was it for you? are you making enough money from it? do surveys come to you regularly? i warmly appreciate your response =)

Hi cathloe, just minutes ago, i joined MyLot and a warm welcome greets me. After that a couple of survey offers which i have to skip all beacause the form is for the US only. No offer for other countries of which i'm here in the Philippines. This is what i observed for a couple of sites I came across in the internet. We have the same problem. After I sign up with survey sites, i am given an introductory profile survey. After that, months no SURVEY coming from that sites. So, I think our Geographical location is the main reason. I don't know your location.

Hi cathloe, you really need to be patient with those survey sites. Survey offers will be sent to you only when you meet certain criteria. Do not loose heart, I joined survey head and globaltestmarket and they both work for me. You just need to make sure you check you mail box and one day, you'll see a survey waiting for you. Nope, Surveys dno't come regularly to me as well. It is on a occassional basis.

Hi, I have not reach the targeted amount need to cashout for surveyhead. One thing is I don't receive their surveys very often. However, for Globaltestmarket, I have received payment twice from them. I just received my 2nd one about sometime last week. Way to go globaltestmarket

wow that's great for you, i've got a long way before i can get my payment in both globaltestmarket and surveyhead. haha. globaltestmarket kept sending surveys before when i was still in school. Because i couldn't check my account for often, the surveys that i was supposed to answer expires. and now that i'm free from school, i check my yahoo account more often and it's sad because there are no more survey invites from globaltestmarket. i hope they would send me surveys for me to answer. i'm still hoping. good for you =) at least i know that they really pay cash =)

I'm signed up with surveyhead and global test market. I also signed up with a bunch of others that I found off a list of legit sites. At first, getting surveys was really slow and I would check my account everyday to see if there was anything new. Then I just kind of gave up and then survey invites started piling up in my email inbox. Answer all the "about me" information sections in your accounts, this will help them match you up with surveys you might qualify for. Be patient, it may seem like these sites aren't working but if you give it some time the invites will be sent to your email from all your different survey accounts.

I'm a member of: SurveySpot (they're pretty good, I get a quite a few invites from them),MyView, MindField Online, Opinion Outpost, and Springboard America. I'll definitely say most of my invites come from SurveySpot, Opinion Outpost, and Global Test Market. The other sites will give me a few invites a week but I'll get invites from my top sites almost daily.

I make about 30-40 per month off of survey sites. If you stick with it and do them often you can make some extra money too.

good for you, i wish i could earn as much as you do. there are no available surveys that come to my email/account, but still,i'm hoping, i could earn..

Nope I don't plan on making money surveys right now. I used to deal with those but I'm too impatient to ever wait for surveys and some offers I was referred to were crummy scams which were so disappointing. I'm not fond of extra slow cash I'm more interested in instant money. =P

Hi cathloe. yes, there are plenty of survey sites out there that are actually legitimate! You do just have to be patient though - it does take some time to get surveys and you may feel as if you are not going to make any money! It actually took me almost a year to make my first payout from some of these sites, but its still such a rewarding feeling the day you get that payout! I probably get surveys about once a week now and it is definitely taking quicker to reach my payout date now, so be patient!

I have done surveys long ago and about three weeks ago started doing it again. I really appreciate this post as in the replies I have found a few new places to check out. I am with opinion outpost currently and making a little income but nothing very exciting. In fact it can be very frustrating. I am offered 3 to 5 surveys a day and when I go to do them I answer a number of screening questions and find that I do not qualify or do not meet the criteria for that survey. In all it seems I qualify for 1 out of 10 of the surveys I am offered. I can say that my current balance after three weeks is 12.50 with opinion outpost. Not very exciting but its more than I would earn playing some computer games. The reason I quit long ago with doing surveys is the company I was working with switched from paying 5.00 for a completed survey to giving points and no way to convert points into cash. Stick with it though and do sign up for a few other sites.
