I have done several surveys with Survey Spot the last week or so and I am wondering anyone ever done survey with them, have you been paid. I think I have done 4 surveys thus far. The surveys were really nice, but I don't want to waste my time and don't get paid.

My first payment from Survey Spot! - Here's my first payment from Survey Spot, a survey spot where there's a minimum payout of $5 via check. It took about 4 surveys to make $7, but that's much higher than some survey sites are paying these days. So, yes, Survey Spot IS legit!
Yes, they definitely ARE legit! My only complaint with them is that they don't offer many surveys with cash incentives, and their payout process is sort of slow. I finally just got my first check, and I was really excited about it! I was sort of nervous about it as well until I got the check in the mail a few days ago. Now I'm totally lovin' Survey Spot.

It really depends your area. I get a lot of surveys each month but I don't participate in too many as they simply might not appeal to me.

Most of the survey companies do not pay. I have done more than 300 surveys and yet I have received any payment. They give scores of execuses for not paying. I have come to conclusion that most survey sites are scammers.

No, I was paid 181 USD for doing various surveys from this site. I love them. They are not a scam, in fact you see the BBB logo on their website so that is telling you they aren't a scam.

It depends on the surveys, sometimes you qualify other times you don't. Just keep trying and you'll get ones that you qualify. :) Pablo

Yes I have been paid by them too.I think you have to have at least 10.00 to cash out though for a check.I usually though dont qualify for some or everybody else gets to the paid surveys before I do.But I like the new look they have if you take a paid survey or non paid survey you can scratch a scratch card to win or do the slot machine.

I am glad you were paid. I find there surveys to be interesting and was praying they are legit because I want to continue. I also like the slot machine game. Thank you, I will continue doing their surveys.

Actually it's 5 USD to cash out. Oh, yea I forgot about the slot machine. I love that too! It is fun to play it to see if you won a prize :)

SurveySpot is a complete scam. I have racked up 600 points before they decided to randomly terminate my membership (without stating a specific reason). I truthfully and honestly answered each survey to the best of my ability. I think they randomly terminate memberships to keep their costs down.

I have also been paid by survey spot. This site is my favorite site for making money doing online surveys. Since joining about a year ago I have made over two hundred dollars! They consitently have surveys on their site along with many emails inviting you to take them. The minumum payout for this site is 5 dollars, which can easily be done in 1 to 2 surveys/one day. Although you have to wait about a month to start seeing constant money adding to your account, surveyspot is worth sticking with. I have had around 5 checks sent to me so far. I do their surveys constantly and check their site all the time, sometimes obsessively lol. One tip is to check back and respond quickly. Sometimes you will not quailify for a survey because everyone else responded to it first and they closed it. Before this site i didnt think that there were good sites out thier to make money. Even my own mom could barely believe I made that much doing surveys(even after seeing the checks.) So in conclusion surveyspot is not a scam, its far far far from it.

I have been a survey spot member for several months now. At first all I got were surveys that entered me into a sweepstakes so I was getting frustrated with them. Some I qualified and some I didn't. Then I started to get surveys that paid between $1-5. You only need $5 to cash out. Recently I got a survey for $25 and last week one for $35 dollars. Yes they are legit and when i had problems their support center responded that same day. I think alot of survey sites do that at first where either you don't qualify or they are testing you then surveys just start piling up. I've had this with happen with many survey sites and now that I've stayed with them they have really come through with cash, gift cards, free products to try, etc...You just have to stick through with it if its something you really want to do. One thing to watch out for to is that even if they do not pay alot of times they are leading up to something such as wanting to send you a product to try. Free stuff is always good!!!

I love Survey Spot and they are NOT a scam! They do pay! My highest paying surveys have been at survey spot. I just took a $20.00 survey and received a $25.00 check from them back in Feb. of this year. They do however send alot of surveys that don't pay. I only do the surveys that offer cash rewards. I love this site!

I've been paid by survey spot. The majority of its surveys though are entries to win the sweepstakes though.

They don't have a lot of paid surveys, in my experience, but enough to keep me hanging on $2-5 per month....I've never won in "instant game" thing with anything more that entries to the sweepstakes that I never win. However, they do have 2-3 surveys a month that pay cash and I think if you do all their crap surveys, they reward you with those. $10 or so a month is worth it! That's my dogs' food!
