1. You may notice that there aren’t hundred of survey sites on this list – you are right because I only list those legit and quality survey sites that worth joining. Notice that all survey panels listed here pay members either cash and/or gift cards and/or prizes (in other words, no sweepstakes only survey sites), and many of them have high paying focus groups and product testing opportunities.

3. It is a time consuming process signing up with all the survey panels and fill out detailed panel profiles – I recommend you join all the survey panels and fill out the basic profile first, then go back to each panel to fill out additional and more details panel profiles.
4. I add legitimate new survey sites whenever I find them. I also review this list periodically to make sure all survey sites listed here are still active and all links are working.
