I'm Almost Done With A Survey Site
December 5, 2015 2:51pm CST
After these last two weeks, I’m almost done with the Vindale survey site. Last night it directed me to a survey and it took me about 20 minutes. But at the end of it, it froze when I had it 91 percent done. I tried refreshing the page over and over but it wouldn’t let me go forward. What a big waste of time this was. Last week I did 4 surveys in a row. So far I’ve only been credited for one. It is almost time to let this one go. Plus when you make $300 in their calendar year they want your social security number. They say they have to have when you make $600. I understand this, but they aren't getting it.

@AbbyGreenhill It's maybe exaggerated to say that someone can make a living completing surveys, but I remember having seen some sites that paid up to $20 per survey (to people in the US, of course). That's a good amount if you take them daily.

@Susan2015 Ok, I did it, and as expected, it's only for US residents. Their website reads "Membership in the Program is open to individuals only (not corporations or other legal entities) located in the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia."

@Susan2015 Yeah, the ones I get from E-poll are quite occasional. I signed up years ago, and just never completely stopped doing it. I kind of enjoy when I get to leave comments. Hopefully someone gets a laugh out of them. I'm pretty honest. Can you imagine me being able to anonymously respond to "What words come to mind when you see this celebrity?" with a picture of Kim Kardashian or Justin Bieber in front of me?

I would certainly be skeptical about giving away my ssn. I recently joined the swagbucks site where part of the way you earn is by taking surveys. Some surveys are more than 10 minutes long and it can get annoying doing them. Sometimes I do some and I get disqualified after answering a certain set of questions. I guess the responses I give means that I am not qualified to continue on. There are other ways to earn on the site, one of which is participating in offers, but I can't bring myself to try that out yet. Not sure I need any of the offers they give.

Have you been paid by that site? I am always lazy to work on survey sites, as it may take very long time to do the surveys. Sometimes when I have answered many questions for quite some time, I was told I am not eligible for the survey. I did get paid by a few survey sites, so I only work on these sites. But I have missed many survey opportunity as I am lazy to answer so many questions.
