Thought this was kind of exciting. Today I just received the $35(100% of what I was owed.) I was owed from Surveyspot in the mail today. I would say it took tops of about 7 days to send to me(Not including weekends as weekends generally aren't counted towards business days.) and I only spent maybe 3-4 hours on the survey site possibly a bit more taking surveys. Soo, I feel I got paid pretty well for simply sharing my opinion! I suggest everyone most definitely should check out this survey site! I wrote a bit more about it in my blog which you can find in my profile labeled "Surveyspot is legit!" What about you, have you been paid so luxioursly by a survey company for such little time invested?

You rock that site! I made $7 from Survey Spot, and I have $2 in pending. I still only get sent ones for sweepstakes entries - and on the rare occasion that I DO receive a paid survey invitation I don't qualify for it. Blah. What's new.

Yeah, I think I fit the survey sites qualifications a little TOO perfectly it seems as people even from the US say they don't seem to get nearly as many surveys as I do! Hey though, i'm not complaining. You can always try your hand at writing. Much more profitable market. Lower paying markets generally anywhere from $1-$40 per a given writing assignment but the higher up you get i've seen writing assignments for as high as $300-$400+(Per individual assignment!). I mention some databases in my blog if you want to go check them out but a little searching on the internet can lead to much more. Just do your research!

Congratulations on your earnings. So you say that you worked about three to four hours and got thirty five dollars? That is good. I have just joined this site but I have never been really good at taking surveys as I do not have the patience and they seem to ask you the same thing over and over again. I will try it though and see how it goes as I have a membership there. What is the minimum to cash out? Is the only way that they pay is by check in the mail?

I think the minimum is like. $5 to cash out(Possibly $10 but I doubt any higher then that.). I just waited till' later as it was fun to watch it add up, . Yeah, it seems the only way is to receive money is a check in the mail(took them about 6-8 days till' I received mine.). It was roughly 3-4 hours, give or take a bit more. It wasn't all in one sitting. I got a 15-20 minute survey here, another at another given time etc. I didn't get all the surveys at once just to clarify. Anyways, hope this helps and goodluck!

Good Morning, I think it's fantastic that you were paid from this survey site, I haven't tried Surveyspot, maybe I should. I have been on Cash Crates and Panda Search. But, I haven't had much luck with either one so far. With Cash Crates, I went into it yesterday, did about five surveys, so far only two have been confirmed for me to be paid. The rest are in pending. I guess I will see what happens with it today.

I wouldn't compare surveyspot to cashcrate. I don't really consider cashcrate's "Surveys" as surveys as they aren't really. With Surveyspot they provide you with actual surveys that really ask for your opinion about a product or service without trying to forcibly get you to sign up for a product or service?

Surveyspot is a company that helps provide surveys for those interested in taking them that benefit companies so that they can get a better idea of what products and services they like and don't like. I guess the easiest way to put it is are you familiar with what a focus group is outside of the internet? Where people in malls n' places gather a group of people up and bring them in a room to ask them what they think about a given whatever. Well it works kind of like that but in an internet environment and with many more people. You as a person would take a survey, and if qualified would get paid a certain amount. Once reaching their "minimum payout" you would be able to request payout by check. I'm not 100% sure if this is available for international people but if all else fails you can check my blog to find international things you can do to help you make some money :)

Thanks! It was the most fun i've ever had making $35. I wouldn't call it anywhere close to work. Hence the "'s around the word work in the title!

Congratulations on your payment! I do quite a few survey sites, and I have done pretty well myself. The higher paying surveys come around, but not as often as I would like to see them. Sometimes I luck up and qualify, and sometimes I don't. I am sure that I am a member of Surveyspot, but that isn't one of the sites that I work on a regular basis. Now I will have to check it out, since you have done so well. Good luck on more high paying surveys in the future!

I have been a member of Survey Spot for a few months now, but only did like 2 or 3 surveys and the only thing I got was put in an entry for a sweepstakes... never got any money. I will have to check them out some more... I only delete the surveys that still are delivered to my email, next time I will look more into it... thanks for the info! and congrats on your payment....it gives us inspritation to try to complete more surveys!!

Does the site accept world wide member or US only. Because there are many site that do not accept world wide member and even if the accept then there is not enough surveys for them.

You'll really earn lots doing surveys coz survey sites prefer US residents.. Unfortunately, I'm an Asian and i will not earn a single cent from them..

That's awesome. I am a member of surveyspot but have only been paid 5$ so far. I'm actually waiting for that check to come in the mail any day now. I feel like they don't have a lot of surveys that PAY. I'm always watching out for them though. The one site I do feel that pays me well for doing surveys is viewpoint forum. I've been paid big checks there a few times. Pinecone research also pays out well, but it's 3$ checks each time you do a survey, so you don't really "see it add up." I love when I do a few surveys and earn some nice $. It's so worth it!

congrats! This site is one of my favorite sites to earn money with. I remember one time I got a check from surveyspot for 126 dollars! Thats a lot of money for just filling out simple surveys. I let the earnings rank up though, since they take awhile to be deposited into your account. Anywho congrats again on your earning. You can check out my blog, the link is in my profile, if you are looking for others that pay. :)

Congrats! Surveyspot is better business bureau approved, so you know you will get paid by them. For a while I wasn't qualifying for their surveys, but recently I have gotten two of them, one was 3 dollars and the other was five. Maybe I will start qualifying for more surveys?! Another site that I have been using is viewpointforum. They pay pretty well and it's easy to accumulate points. Most of the surveys I have done were for 200 points. The cashout point is at 375 points, which is 10 dollars. They are also BBB approved, so I have no doubts that I will be getting my check from them. I suggest joining that site if you can, but I think it is invite only now.

Thats good for people who live from U.K. and the U.S. but not good for internationals since these sites are only interested in surveying people from those countries. For internationals, we just hope that are other sites can offer us a good deal to earn money.
