Are there any survey sites that you don't have to qualify for.

Is there any survey sites that you can just take a survey and get paid for without qualifying for them, because my thing is, when I fill out my profile and you ask me about this and that to the third then, when you send me a survey, I don't qualify for them. That sucks. I feel that if you send me a survey I should already be pre-qualified when you send me the survey, so when I take it I can get paid for it. Since they base the survey's off of your profile anyway. I mean am I right?

There is Paidviewpoint. You won't be screened out for every surveys you received. The trait surveys available regularly, but it's only worth $0.03. There might be some higher paid survey, but up to now I only received one. Other than that, I can understand why some of us were being screened out after several questions. They might already pre-qualified us based on our profile, but there is also a possibility that the survey quota for certain characteristic/profiles has been reached so we've been screened out. And also there's a possibility that the company who holds the survey refuse to use the available data on our profiles and prefer to ask it directly instead. It's rather hard to avoid this issue. But you may try GlobalTestMarket. At this site, even if you are being screened out because you don't qualify, you'll still receive a reward of 5 points (worth $0.25).

See I will not mind getting paid for those survey's if I can take them straight out and they pay me, because .03 adds up, I mean every little thing that you do adds up. so that is why I am so into these sites, all that work you do adds up.

You might be right, but I reached the minimum payout on Globaltestmarket faster than on Paidviewpoint.

Pinecone Research does that. They give you household profile surveys to do and then send you just the surveys you qualify for. They usually send me anywhere from 3-4 surveys a month. Sometimes they send full-size products, too. The problem is that they're really tough to get into. They don't have a signup form directly on their site. You have to find one of their recruiting banners to join. It took me a couple years to find one.

I know how you feel. It wastes a bit of our time when we're given a survey, answer a few preliminary questions, but eventually find out we don't qualify. I mean, it would be better if the site had already determined which members are qualified to take a particular survey. This would really facilitate things.

I know, I am just like send me a survey that I qualify for and when I qualify for that survey, if you send it to me than it's mine. I should get paid for it after I do it. I don't like when they send you the survey then you have to qualify again for it, that is bogus. LOL.

I've been doing surveys for quite a while now and at first it took a couple of months before I finally started qualifying, other than for 1 every so often. You have to have persistence. It's definitely not easy. Now, on average, I qualify for 3-6 surveys a day. I doubt if you'll ever find the type you describe. Every survey site will give you surveys but the survey company itself is still going to question you. Also, they ask questions that aren't necessarily in your profile. If you really want to do surveys you have to keep trying. That's my only advice to you. It's difficult and time consuming. I'm not sure if anybody really likes doing surveys, but when you need money..... Wish I could be more helpful to you. Good luck!

Oh I do apologize for that, but it's not much that we in America qualify for here either. LOL. So it looks like we are in about the same boat LOL.

I totally agree with you.They keep sending me surveys ,I waste a lot of time answering the preliminary questions,and after all that ,I do not qualify! As you said,why send the surveys,when they already know my age,location,my interests and many more of the stupid questions they ask!.That is why,I ended up unsubscribing from most of them.The most infuriating ,is when they send me a survey about my work place,when I stated clearly enough that I am retired!!!

I'm not sure there are any that you don't have to qualify for because every one i try to do i need to qualify for or so they say. Every time i do the first few questions to qualify i never qualify not for even one. So i figure it is just a waste of my time and that is why i'm doing my lot. Also on my lot you can make friends from around the world besides not having to qualify for anything.

Paid Viewpoint and poll buzzer do not have you prescreen, but do not send out a lot. I agree with you that it is such a frustration taking ten minutes to answer questions and then get told we do not qualify. It seems like the pits.

You can try Globaltestmarket. Paid me more than $200 so far. Even if you're screen out after the 1st few questions, you'd still get 5 points so at least you don't waste your time & effort. I don't think there are any survey sites that you can just take a survey and get paid for without qualifying for them, if there are, probably are scams. Some survey sites just send invitation to mass or to those that fit only the basic requirement, so we all still have to go through the screening questions & that is fair enough although I admit it is annoying.

In logical sense, most of the survey sites need to ensure the relevant members can provide good quality of surveys and those members are required to qualify themselves before they can further their surveys. However, I think you can try this Globaltestmarket. Each selected member who can not pass the qualification survey will still be granted 5 market points. I was with this survey site in the past few years and I managed to collect few payments too. Recently, I just quite because of my impatient to such slow earning and those troublesome survey's questions. ha! ha! Since you are interested in participating surveys, this is really a good site for you to try.

As far as I know most surveys are available only in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Sad to think that Asian, countries is not qualified with those survey sites?

I pretty much doubt it considering that the whole point of a survey is to get the opinion of a certain demographic audience. That is why they all have a screening process before the survey. If you fit the demographics, that they are looking for then you will be directed to the survey. If you do not meet the criteria, you are direct to the oh so familiar sorry you did not qualify for this survey.. Personally, I would say you are better off spending your time participating in myLot rather than trying to locate a survey that you will qualify for online. I mean you waste so much time on those survey sites just to see if you qualify. If you do not qualify for the survey, they pay you nothing. It would be nice if the would at least give you a few cents for doing the screening portion of the survey. I mean after all you did spend time answering the screening questions for them, so they could compensate with a tiny bit of cash even if it is a penny or two.

I agree with you that you should be qualified for any surveys that you take. I hate it as well, when that happens, as I feel it is a total waste of time to even send out surveys that you aren't qualified for. There is only one that I do where I don't have to be qualified to take them, and that is pine cone research. Now, I don't know if they are accepting anyone knew at this time, but I find them to be the best survey company I have ever done surveys for.I always get paid the next day fter doing them, and $3 might not be much for a survey, butg I do enough of them, that it adds up in my paypal account. I have been with pine cone reseaech for quite some time now, and I intend on staying with them/ Take care, and happy mylotting.

I agree with you. It makes you loose your time. I don't like all the survey that they send you, the one that you give your opinion on something they are too long they ask lots of useless questions anyway.

This happens to me ALL the time. So I end up spending a lot of time answering very similar questions and then getting nothing. I agree with you on them already knowing if you qualify. Sometimes I feel like they are doing this on purpose to fish for information that will help them also. This gives them free information. I hope that its not a hacked site. I have also been almost done according to the percentage and then just disqualified at the last 20%!! Talk about MAD! I contacted them and they credited me. But its hard when they want the survey number and you have already started the survey so you cant find it. Message me and I have a few that you might like. I have decent luck with them.

Hi walking2010! I also tried to answer some survey questions yet I can not continue because I am not qualified to answer the survey. So I did not try it anymore for quite sometime.

I agree with you there I looked at alot of sites hoping to qualify then it says I don't so I gave up and just do this site to make some money.

I so agree with you walking 2010 because every single survey i take to qualify says i don't. This is so fusterating. This is why i am doing my lot instead. I never out anything on my profile for those surveys i just answer the preliminary questions and yet i never qualify for a single survey so i stopped trying.
