I have made money on Mturk. I think cash out is at least $10. I know some people who have made up to $150 a month on MTurk alone. Start off small and do the things that you are qualified for and your rankings will improve and you can land the harder better paying jobs. Good luck!

I have made money from Mturk but I was too stupid not to have learned that workers from the Philippines (just like me) are paid only in amazon gift checks and not in cash...so...my money is there - rotting! I will only continue working there if they will change their policies. Only US and Indian workers are paid in cash. Do you think that's fair?

I did not know that. It does seem very unfair! So sorry that it did not work out for you.

I use Mturk, It is legit. It pays. The problem is A lot of the tasks are low paying. I would suggest doing as many as you can at first. Even if they are low like 10 to 20 cents. Because the more you do the higher your rating will be. Make sure you complete them. And you do a good job. Follow the directions etc. Eventually you will get higher paying tasks. When I first started there, I looked for 25 cent tasks. I found a couple that were always around. That I was really good at. I would try to do 4 of them in 5-10 minutes. Basically earning me around 10 dollars and hour. And every once in a while check for 3 - 5 dollar ones. You might be surprised to find some high paying surveys or studies. Sometimes they have decent article writing tasks from anywhere from 3-7 dollars. Some days Mturk will give you an opportunity to earn some easy quick cash. Other days it might be real slow and the tasks might be boring as all hell. But in the end. I would say it's worth it. And you will make as much time an effort as you put into it. I would strongly suggest it to anyone who knows more than one language. There are a lot of higher paying translation tasks available constantly. I been paid from them more than a handful of times. Every time more than 100 dollars. Great for extra money on the side. Will not pay your rent. Unless your on it 24 7 lol. Good luck!

i'm a member of that site and so far i've earned about $45 so far. if i had more time and qualified for for of the tasks on there then i know that i would make more. one thing that i do is find all the easy ones to complete. ya the pay for them may be low, but it adds up quickly.
