I use this site called opinion outpost. They have a low five dollar payout so I checked it out and I already made eight bucks.

They seem kind of slow on sending out the surveys.

you just have to go to the site daily and check out the available surveys. I made almost four bucks doing that today

Sometimes they do, it may take a while of nickel and dime-ing it, but if you've got the patience, you may get a $40 check sent to you once in a while.

Yes, I made sixty dollars one time. It was a nice boost.

Yes, some sites like global test market, ciao surveys and planet pulse, etc do indeed pay the users. While global test markets and planet pulse pay its users through points which we can later convert to money and ciao surveys pays its users cash for each completed survey and pays through paypal.

I do some on norwegian survey sites. They are usually very short and most of the time fun to do. I do not get money but gifts or giftcertificates. I think it is worthwile. I have gotten some pretty neat stuff

I've been trying to do surveys, and a whole lot of them, in order to make money, but in the end I quit because it seems that I got more money in the PENDING section than in the APPROVED section. I've almost quit Cashcrate and Panda Research because no matter how many surveys I do, I seem to not get any new cash in the APPROVED section.

I don't know if anyone else has this problem but as far as I can see they cost you more money than you make from them. Most of them want your CC # and your Phone #. I have been getting text messages on my phone which I have to pay for and did not give permission for them to do and this is after I canceled my membership with them. I did not reach the payout so what was pending was lost. Now I am having trouble with getting credits for offers I did on another site and had to pay for with my credit card. It's a lose /lose game. I am beginning to think they are all scams in some way or other. And with the surveys ...you spend 15 min. to 30 min answering questions just to be told at the end that "you do not qualify for this survey"...duh, then why did they have me continue to the end of the survey?
