TestSpin is an online survey site. They pay you in Amazon Gift Certificates. I just got my first one yesterday and redeemed it right away. However, TestSpin frustrates me. I get a survey request every day, but 9 times out of 10 I don't qualify for the survey and don't get credit. Has anyone else used this, and do you like it? I have other survey sites I like better because they prescreen the surveys for me. Anyhow, just looking for feedback adn trying to decide if TestSpin is still worth my time.

I am a testspin memeber, I agree with you for as many survey invites they send out, there is very few I quailfy for. Some of my other survey sites I do much better. I think though its all good, and everything adds up. I am about 2 bucks away from my first payout there.. another thing that bothers me is that I forget because of the time frame how many I do there. Sometimes it takes up to 6 weeks before you see a result posted to your account. So you had no trouble redeeming your gift card at amazon then? Its good to know that they are honored.

TestSpin? No I haven't. I don't normally join sites which pay people as most either rip those members off or rip off other people in other ways. I'm sorry to hear about this, although It sounds to be one of those which uses it's users. =( Cya cassidy =)

I've never heard of TestSpin. Does anyone have a link? I'd love GC for amazon. Blaze- I used your link to sign up for cashlagoon. Thanks! Lynx- I've saved your site to my favorites and will visit it in the morning as it is bedtime here for the kids. Another site everyone might like is MyView, it only pays $2 but they do pay.

Although I agree with one of the other respondents that the long credit tim can be frustrating, Testspin is actually one of my best pay out survey site. I would say that I qualify in about 60-70 percent of the survey links they send me, so for me it is a good deal. When it comes to these survey sites it has a lot to do with your demographics whether or not you cash out a lot or not. I would say a mother of two or more children, in the late twenties - early fourties have the best chances, as these maily do all of the grocery shopping, handle household finances etc., and a lot of companies target this consumer group. What I like about Testspin is that their surveys are not extremely long, and the fact that they actually do pay in gift certificates, since many of these sites offer lots of sweepstake entries.

I am also the member of test spin, but as I am not in the USA, i know i have nearly no chance to be qualified in a survey, in fact i have received only 4 invitations in the past 2 months and i have not qualified for any. Not only test spin, i reckon other survey sites are like that, or may be it is due to the fact that Australia is not a great market for survey,that is why i cannot qualify. Everytime when i check the email inbox , iam happy as i see the invitations, but after few minutes, i will be frustrated.

I had the same experience as you...only it seemed to be 99 out of 100 times I don't qualify...after giving them a lot of information. I finally quit them!

1. Promise payment after 4-6 weeks, its more like 10 weeks (so why dont they change the wording?) 2. They make the survey taker invest anywhere from 10-60 minutes, THEN they disqualify you. 3. Somehow completed surveys are lost and they favor themselves and the their client, thus the survey taker loses their time, that they cant get back and never rewarded for money earned. 5. They charge you to get a paypal payment for the money that you, as a survey taker, earned.

I feel the same way about most survey sites. I tried Test Spin and decided that for the number of surveys that I would have to take (I don't qualify for most of them
