I've signed up for MTurk and done a couple of tasks on there. It seems a bit similar to the tasks on Mylot, except you earn credit to spend on Amazon. Does anyone else use this site, what are your impressions?

I use Mechanical Turk and have done alright from it. I've made nearly $140.00 and a lot of it has been from survey or article writing work. You can have the money paid in to a bank account if you are in the U.S but usually I use my Amazon vouchers to buy stuff I'd buy anyway and then save what I would have spent. If I find a UK bank that will let you set up a US bank account then I'll go with that option.

$140 is an excellent result. I can see how it is possible to earn a decent amount on there. I managed to earn $0.65 in about 15 minutes when I was trying the site out the other day. I think I'll give it a real try tomorrow.

I've never heard of it but I would type "Mturk scam" into a search engine, and see what you get. But if it's a fairly new site, scam stories not show up even if it is one. Hope I helped, Rose2798

MTurk is officially supported by Amazon! So it is as genuine as Amazon.com is. I am also a member of it and the fact is that Indians can transfer the money to their bank account! I haven't been a regular visitor their but I do visit. There is no doubt about it being genuine.

Yes, I have used it on and off in the past 3 or 4 months. I haven't made much money from it, but I only do task on Mturk three or four times a month (smile). Most people seem to like it though. I like okay, but some of the tasks really bore me sometimes.

From my brief look at the site, I've seen that some of the tasks are much better than others. Some tasks pay a lot more for the same amount of effort as others paying far less.

Mturk is simply suspending too many accounts without proper reasons. They keep the hard earned money of workers. There are too many scam requester even on the front page of this site, they never suspend them, overall it is behaving like a scam site these days, very unfortunate;

I have been working on mturk site for 6 months. It is a genuine site. Till now i have made around $200 and I have been paid 4 times. So don't doubt it. Mturk has many type of tasks compared with mylot tasks. Keep working on it.

i heard and check for mturk system but in reality i did no subscribe also because my country was not really eligible to have a complete partecipation on this site..anyway i think if they will pay real money against just give you some coupo to spend on amazon should be better in my opinion..

I use mTurk and I really like it. I haven't been there for awhile though. I've used my earnings to help me purchase some stuff on Amazon. It was a great help.
