With the economy being where it is now, many people have turned to the internet to boost their income. And with more people turning to the internet to make money, there are more websites to scam these people. There are several survey sites that are legitimate and pay the survey taker a reasonable amount of money for their time. However, there are also websites that actually charge a monthly to fee for their members to take surveys when they are the people that should actually be getting paid. What survey websites have you've been successful with and which ones aren't worth the time?

Hi, There are many survey scam out there in the internet. Since I don't live in US or Canada I take Global Test Market. You will earn points and convert it to cash. I just join it so I am not sure if it is scam. Most of the surveys are available if you live in US, Canada, Australia and UK. It really depends where you live and your demographic area. I have a huge list of surveys site but I have not join to them just the Global Test Market.

If I may: Whenever you need more information on most any income opportunity, you can go to IM Report Card . com and look it up there (you even get paid by adding your own reviews and voting on others). Since I have less than 500 posts, I can at least give you a solid hint on the main site: imreportcard.com :P I noticed a member said he has been a Global Test Market for ten months, and has yet to reach the minimum $50 payout. You can reach that limit in one or two months by joining some of Cint.com partner panels. Only join the panels in your country, though. Other than being slow, Global Test Market seems to be fine.

My answer is HCD Surveys: www.hcdsurvey.com/panel/join.cfm?referralid=223184 if you don't wanna use my referal id then you can just go there yourself as well as any of the ones I'm going to post. www.swagbucks.com/refer/MeltingPrism it pays you for searching the internet through their search engine, filling out a one question poll, buying things you're already going to buy or doing surveys. They are partnered with Surveyhead. Not only do you earn swagbucks, but you also earn money for doing them. Survey savvy offers a very good referal system and no minimum cash out balance. www.surveysavvy.com?id=3607931&action=join I also recommend global test market and mysurvey.com
