    I’d like to find out more? I’d like to find out more details.

    • Mei Lynn says:

      Hi Laurence, if you want more details for each survey panels, check out the “Paid Survey Reviews” section. I will add the review links to each site later.

  3. Rose Anderson says:

    Very helpful information. Appreciate it.
    My Likes:
    Cashcrate is a site where you can earn free cash online. If you are someone who needs more money and has some spare time, this site is perfect for you. You earn money by doing free offers, surveys, watching ads, shopping online, participating in live contests and referring your friends and family members to the site.Their referral system is great too. When you sign up a person you earn 20% of your level 1 referrals. If you can collect quite a few referrals, that can turn into some excellent income from others doing work! Cashcrate not only pays you 20% of your level one referrals, but they implement a 2 level referral system. That means anyone who signs up under your referrals, you will also earn 10% of their earnings. When a referral gets to the $10 minimum you get an automatic $3 bonus! Not only can you earn all that money, but once you get more referrals, your referral percentage increase up to 30%. This is why Cash crate is the best GPT site. YOUR EARNING POTENTIAL IS UNLIMITED.
    I have made close to $3000 using this great Get Paid To Site. The amazing part is I’ve spent only about 6 hours a week on this site and I’ve earned $300 in 1 month! I can’t urge you enough to try it out for yourself.

    • Mei Lynn says:

      Rose,

      I appreciate you sharing your experience and I want to make it clear again to my readers that Cashcrate is NOT a paid survey site, it’s a GPT/paid offer site (due to the fact your comment under this survey listing article).

      Now Should you take surveys on those GPT/Paid offer sites: ?

      No, I I do not recommend take surveys from those paid offer sites like Cashcrate, for the reason below:

      Yes you can take surveys over there but those surveys are all low paying (under $1) surveys and you can earn a lot more if you take those exactly same surveys directly from real survey sites such as iPoll/SurveyHead, GlobalTestMarket and MyView etc.

  4. Mei Lynn says:

    Removed opinion place from the list, since it’s retired/closed. It’s sad they are a good survey panel. :(

  5. Very good information. Lucky me I ran across your site by chance (stumbleupon).
    I have book marked it for later!

  6. Charlotte says:

    There are non-working links on this list. Please refresh.

  7. Mei Lynn says:

    So I received an survey from Surveyspot, 75 points 1 minut. They one of the questions they ask:

    Which of the following do you currently own? Please select all that apply.

    The first option, guess what, is: BUS

    How the heck can I own a bus? funny and stupid!

    By the way, the survey turns out ask me to join Nielson Digital Voice, need to download software, no thanks.

  8. Sarah says:

    So.. I am BRAND new to this! As of today 01-08-14 what would be the number one paid survey site for begginers. I am very watchful of scams… Tried the ZNZ thing two months ago and that was a loss of at least $20.00.

    • mlynn says:

      Hi Sarah,

      The best ones are the top 10 on this list, and I would at least sign up the top 30 at least. Those are legitimate real market research panels and it is absolutely FREE to sign up, to do surveys and get paid. NO FEEs whatsoever.

      I am not familiar with ZNZ but have heard a little about it. It sounds they have bunch of paid OFFERS (which you have to pay).

      Hope it helps and feel free to let me know if you have any questions!

      Good luck!

  9. JD says:

    Have been a member of eRewards for over 3 years and cannot ever remember them offering Amazon gift cards as payment. Blockbuster is no longer offered as well.

    • mlynn says:

      Hi JD, yes I know…when I was a member they never had amazon, but last time when I checked their website they listed Amazon gift cards as one of the reward options! It was a surprise to me as well! I will double check again, since I know their rewards options change from time to time as well as their sponsors.

    • mlynn says:

      Update: I just checked their site, while choosing amazon I got following message:

      Thank you for your interest in this Reward.
      Unfortunately, there are no Amazon offers available at this time.

      Only gift card they offer now is Restaurant.com gift certificates.

  10. Curt says:

    You do know that 20/20 is not updated right?
    Also I have received a check from Global Opinion Panel in the past
    I believe I lost my account because my six months expired while I was trying too get the internet back

    • mlynn says:

      Not sure what do you mean by 20/20 Research updated?

      Global Opinion Panel merged (bought by) with Ipsos a while ago. I had been paid by them as well but no I no longer have an account with them.

    [quote name=Betty]How do I find Cash Crate? Is it on this list?
    Thanks for help.[/quote]Cashcrate isn’t a real paid survey site, although it does has low paying daily surveys. It’s actually a paid offer site. So I didn’t list it here, but you can find it in the Paid Offer site list. hope it helps.

    • william says:

      I just want to say that i never seen this before until now. On one of these surveys personal info they ask you if you are in a (same-sex relationship) now with that in mind they can basically decline you because its not into law. I just want to put this out there thats all. Of course people will probally lie about it.

  22. mlynn.admin says:

    Thank you very much for your feedback Diana. Surveyspot used to be one of my favorites, but I haven’t take many surveys for them lately since they bought/merged with OpinionOutpost. I guess I will need to re-examine them. :)

  23. Diana says:

    I ‘ve been doing surveys for quit some time, and now I am part of the websites that only offer Amazon gift certificates, so I don’t have to wait for months for the check.My favorite is SurveySpot, they usually don’t pay more than 0.5$ per survey, but I got so many opportunities with them for testing products and focus groups. I also like Clearvoice Surveys, they send new surveys every day and if I don’t qualify at least I still get 0.1$ with them. Also I want to mention the new one Univox, I qualify very often, I reached the payout shortly after I signed up for it

  24. Rosiem says:

    I have submitted a request to withdraw my market point 1700 to Global Test Market in November 2, 2011. However, I have not receive my cheque till date. Can you please help me in this regard?

  29. BBanker says:

    [quote name=jpaper]whats the best site? that pays the most?[/quote]Global Test Market (in my opinion). Although I don’t qualify for too many (age). If you want one that is very reliable try QuickRewards Network. Not a lot of money but it adds up every day.

    [quote name=Janet Wheatley]I have been a member of Lightspeed Panel for several years. Now there is one big problem. Everytime I try to sign in, it says that I am not a member, due to no activity for a long period of time. I had just received some of my rewards a couple weeks ago. I have always been active, taking 3-4 surveys a week. I tried to resign up and the page lets me go about 2 pages in and kicks me out, saying that there is technical error. I have emailed Lightspeed over and over and no reply. I have never had this problem, until now. Now I have lost all of my points that I still had in my account. :huh:[/quote]Since Lightspeed has combined with MySurvey I rarely receive surveys from them directly anymore.

  31. BBanker says:

    [quote name=Janet Wheatley][quote name=Lori]i am a member of global test market.
    i have been there for awhile and i can’t get my points redeemed. it makes me sign in over and over again. is anyone else having this problem.
    i am enjoying reading this site so much.
    thanks for all the help and opinions.

    Lori,
    I have been a member of this panel for about 6 years. I have never had a problem cashing out my reward money. I just received a check from them Saturday. It only took 2 weeks to receive it![/quote]Sometimes I overlook something on the form that causes that. Keep trying, they’re a good company.

    Hi smal1018, I just visited Opinion Outpost site with no problem…Maybe they were having technical problems….can you try again? If it still doesn’t work, here is their contact number I found on their site you can call: 1.877.254.1234 . Hope it helps!

    Thanks for your feedback Leslie. Glad to know you are having some success with paid surveys. Pinecone is a good panel, and you can check out all the other survey panels on this list – they are all legitimate market research companies and they do pay. Also want to let you know that please be careful if you decide to take Panda’s “surveys” and never give out your credit cards information. That’s all! :-)

  46. Leslie says:

    I am 55 yrs old and have been doing surveys for about 2 yrs now. I have been earning money on Panda research simply by opening the emails they send. I received $50 to my PayPal account in Jan. 2012. I also Do surveys with Pinecone Because they are the only one that I’ve found that actually pays you when you do a real survey! They email you a survey, you answer the questions and you receive $3.00 to your prepaid Mastercard that they send to you when you join. I get about 4 surveys a month. I have also received products that are not yet on the market to try and then fill out a survey about them which they also pay me for.

  47. Rebecca H says:

    Thanks for the information! I want to do some online paid surveys to try and get some extra cash. We could certainly use all the money we can get this time of year.

    Sorry to hear about the trouble Clairebear. Believe it or not once my account was once blocked, and I contacted their customer service (first by email then by phone) and it turned out that some SOB was spamming my referral link and they accused me of referral fraud!!! I was mad!! :-x . Anyway they later admitted it was not me and they re-activated my account. My point is you never know what was going on!! I suggest you contact them again and if possible call them. I know they have a phone number for US members, but not sure about UK. Good luck!

  49. Clairebear says:

    I was with MySurvey for a few years and received some good payments but then they blocked my account and didn’t tell me (Only after a few weeks when I didn’t receive any invitations to surveys)

    They won’t say when or why, just that their system detected an irregularity (there are none because I check my details regularly) and not only were they blocking my account with no explanation but they are stealing back £20 of incentives I earned…

    Hi Duncan, NONE of the companies on my list requires you to purchase or sign up something/programs. All companies on my lists are legitimate market research paid survey companies/panels that will pay YOU for your time and opinion. Those require you to sign up programs are NOT real paid survey sites, they are either scams or paid offer sites, but they are NOT paid survey sites. Hope it helps.

  52. Duncan Judson says:

    Hi,

    I have taken some surveys and at the end the company has required me to purchase something, or signup for a paid program.

    Do these companies on your list do that particular practice at the end of their surveys?

    plz help me find genuine survey site to earn money…..

  69. r7gon says:

    Hi everyone, the best survey company to get into is Pinecone. I was a panelist and I received checks in the mail for about 3-5 dollars per survey. I also received full size sample products to try. It’s not easy to get in. You have to keep an eye out for their banners. I had to stop doing surveys for them due to family crisis and waited to long to ask to be allowed back in. They told me I could reapply and when I did I was denied due to not being the in the profile group they were looking for. I still say they are the best and legitmite site out there.

    [quote name=Amber]Hi Mlynn. I just found your site and think its great. I have a couple questions that I hope you don’t mind me asking! On average how many hours per week do you spend on surveys and what is the average weekly pay?

    hi

    an excellent site to join is http://www2.quickrewards.net/?r=!F94VXV35D4V8B

    copy paste this link on to your address bar and register.

    there is around 10c per day for 5 mins work + at least $3 per day if you do the surveys every day… there are about 10 surveys every day but you may get through 4-6 per day.

    If you buy online using quickrewards link, you get cashback or points that can be converted later into cash. I use Paypal for my daily cashouts.

    Hope this works well for you!

    Really appreciate the feedback… Please keep us updated on what happens next..Thanks!!

    Anne – sorry to heard paid surveys is not working well for you. I know it might be a little tough for retirees. Do you mind telling which 20 sites you signed up with?

  79. Anne says:

    I am retired and recently registered at more than 20 different survey sites. I have since spent/wasted several hours every day doing the survey questionaire profiles for each site, only to find out that I have not qualified for a single one. Some of the questionaires are pretty long. This is a JOKE!!
    A total waste of my precious time and energy! :sad:

  80. Porter says:

    So after asking what fraudulent activity, and stating I work hard to give honest answers on all surveys I complete.
    I got this response “Thank you for your patience. Please know your points are being returned for your canceled order.”
    And the points are back in my account as stated.
    I guess we will see if they pay out this time around…

  81. mlynn.admin says:

    Gee that’s awful Porter. what a mess!! I am disappointed at MySurvey too…I also have heard people having technical problems when taking surveys with them…That’s why I haven’t taken their surveys for a while..now this cash out problem is even more bothersome, cause I never had cash out problem with them before. :-x By the way I am able to login now (their support got back to me pretty fast)…guess what I was going to take this survey – was told the survey takes 30 minutes, but they didn’t say how much points I get paid, so forget it!!! :-?

  82. Porter says:

    Hey mlynn
    I had an issue logging in like a month ago, it said my account was inactive, after contacting support it was re-activated with no explanation why it was made inactive.
    about a week later i reached the $10 cash out through paypal requirement and when i tried to cash out it gave me a message stating that ” sorry your cart total exceeds your account balance” when I was 300 over the required point level.
    Contacted support and got that resolved but that is the cash out that has been “canceled due to fraudulent activity”
    on top of that i am again having the cart total exceeds point balance error again.
    I did a quick search and found some of the survey panel rating sites, i noticed quite a few negative reviews recently compared to mostly positive before, including one persons account that was closed for not living in the US when they do.
    It almost sounds like Mysurvey is starting to do anything possible to avoid paying out.

  83. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Porter, wow! that sucks! I wonder what’s going on with MySurvey?! I have been having login problem too. Just sent them an email. (by the way, I accidentally deleted them from the list, put it back but move them down from the list).

  84. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi jheni – sorry to hear you’re having problems with SurveyHead. How long have been since you took the survey? – Sometimes it takes a while to see credit, I still have a survey not credited yet that I took this January :-| . But that’s the only one and all others were credited. Can you give them a little bit more time, and contact their support later?? Good luck!

  85. Porter says:

    What happened to Lightspeed Research/Mysurevey?
    It used to be near the top of the list.
    I was going to post a comment because Im having Issues with cashing out and now they say its because of “fraudulent activity”.
    I wanted to ask if anyone else is having the same issue and if thats why its no longer on the list?

    Hi Michael – yes many sites I have not personally reviewed yet cause I usually write reviews after I get paid. Believe it or not sometimes due to "bad luck" it takes long time to get to qualify a survey for some reason (such as demographics.).

    However, there are some sites I did wrote reviews but didn’t put the links yet (I will do it as soon as I can)..at the mean time, could you check the "Paid Survey Reviews" section to see if you can find the survey sites that have been reviewed. If you can’t find the ones you would like to review, please let me know which sites and I will set up the review pages so at least you and others can write your reviews.

    Thanks for pointing this out and you are very appreciated for providing suggestions and feedback!! :cheer:

    1)Use Super IP Hide to set your IP to USA this will allow you to use sites that verify your location via your IP.

    2) If Your rewards are sent through the mail (checks/prizes) then use a mail forwarding service.

    :cheer: :sad: I have had problems with Surveyhead also they don’t pay and hardly ever send any surveys to complete, I think I migt of completed just one survey then they stopped sending surveys, so we are both in the same boat as far as Surveyhead.com been a member quite a few years also and they seem to disqualify me everytime, they are perhaps a scam.[quote name=Mary]I have been a member of Surveyhead for a couple of years, They send me surveys all the time, but I spend sometimes 7-8 minutes, trying to Qualify for surveys only to have them come back & say Sorry You dont qualify,I have spent all that time for nothing, I dont think I have ever made any money so I dont do them any more its a waste of my time,Also I have been doing & getting paid for a year or more on Green-cash but all of a sudden they dont pay me anymore, Has anyone been doing them lately, & I try emailing them several times but they dont answer , Thanks let me know if any of you have had a problem with Green – Cash[/quote]

  121. gemma says:

    I would like to thank you for sharing this information with us for free. you save us plenty of time and frustration. It is so time consuming to filter out scams survey vs legit. Last weekend I was filling out forms from 5am-2pm non-stop except bathroom break only to find out 9 hours later that I only earned 50 cents. I was very close to tears.

  122. Robert Goodwyn says:

    Hello mysurvey123:
    Did find you in the AARP article of March/April. Glad I did . I have been working with some of these surveys for a while. All comments are valid. Especially, when you take a survey for about 10-15 minutes and they come back with you don’t qualify. Seems to me they are getting the survey information up front, without rewarding you. Will chat later on specifics, but I know Esearch is a better survey group.
    They deliver.

  123. mlynn.admin says:

    No problem Lilly, anytime. :-)

  124. Lilly says:

    :-) Thank you so much for all your help,and all the info that had gave me. I’m sure I’m goint to have some more questions in the future. I appreciate your help.
    Thank you and have a great day.

  125. mlynn.admin says:

    Oh Lilly, you can always clear your cookies from time to time.

  126. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Lilly – hmm, it’s the first time I have heard that they can collect info in your shopping cart? Are you sure about that? I will double check their policy again. I think it’s very unlikely since the only way they can do that is to install some kind of tracking software which is not required to join their panel. To answer your other questions, NO – no legitimate survey companies will collect your bank/credit card or SSN (unless you make more than $600/year with a certain survey company, since they need to report your income to IRS). Anyway, I have signed up with almost all the survey companies on my list and never had any problems with them.

    The cookies are standard process by almost all websites – whenever you visit a website, it will record some very basic information about you such as your Inernet browser you use and what version, sometimes your username etc – those information are harmless.

  127. Lilly says:

    Hello!!
    I’m sorry to bather you again.I just sing up with Synovate Global and after I finished in there site I notice an info about cookies. I read som of the info and that they can collection info like about what I have in my shopping cart and it concern me. Do any of this companies can collect info from my copm. like credit card # or my ssn?You know serious info.And can I turn off my cookies?
    Thank you

  128. Lilly says:

    Thank you for your help. I’m goint to try one of the companies and whatever result that I get I’m goint to write about it. I was wondering if you or anybody have any info of surveymonster. I have seen the website but I’m not sure about it. I’m not looking to get rich just trying to get some cash. The jobs outther have no flexibility, I’m a stay at home mom and to be honest all I have is a high school diploma no many experience only as a cashier. Thank you and have I wonderful day. :-)

  129. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Lilly, yes you need to provide physical address – cause sometimes the survey sites/market research companies need to send you products to test. Another reason (I think) is for fraud control. Don’t worry the sites on the lists are all legitimate companies.

  130. Lilly says:

    Hi
    I want to sign with some of the paid survey programs. But ask me for my physical address. I was thinking about to get me a po box address but the programs that i have had start to fill don’t want a po box address. Do I have to give them my physical address in order to receive my payment?

  131. Manny says:

  133. Janet Wheatley says:

    I have been a member of Lightspeed Panel for several years. Now there is one big problem. Everytime I try to sign in, it says that I am not a member, due to no activity for a long period of time. I had just received some of my rewards a couple weeks ago. I have always been active, taking 3-4 surveys a week. I tried to resign up and the page lets me go about 2 pages in and kicks me out, saying that there is technical error. I have emailed Lightspeed over and over and no reply. I have never had this problem, until now. Now I have lost all of my points that I still had in my account. :huh:

  134. Janet Wheatley says:

    [quote name=Lori]i am a member of global test market.
    i have been there for awhile and i can’t get my points redeemed. it makes me sign in over and over again. is anyone else having this problem.
    i am enjoying reading this site so much.
    thanks for all the help and opinions.

    thanks, Lori[/quote]
    Lori,
    I have been a member of this panel for about 6 years. I have never had a problem cashing out my reward money. I just received a check from them Saturday. It only took 2 weeks to receive it!

  135. schmonna says:

    I’ve done surveys from American Consumer Opinions for a while now and they are legit. Most surveys pay about $3. They do not take long and they pay via check or paypal. It does take a while to earn a lot of money, but every few dollars counts!

  136. Stacy says:

    I just started taking survey about a week ago. I do appreciate sites like this one and survey police for free advice & suggestions. The best site I came across so far is Opinion Outpost. They pay about-$1.50-$4.50 per survey. The pro is: Low payout only $5 :cheer: . The con is a lot of survey I have started and aft 15 min or so they say sorry you don’t qualify :unsure: it seems as soon as they discover I’m not Hispanic because I have a Hispanic last name because of my husband,they say sorry you do not qualify that happened twice :sad: I guess they want someone hispanic :-? : Well anyway I did make $15 in about an hour total not bad I guess B)

  137. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi PalioC, thanks for the comment. Yes, some of the survey sites on the US list also accept members from other countries. We also have a International Paid Survey List (http://mysurvey123.com/index.php/Free-Paid-Surveys-List/International-Free-Paid-Surveys-List.html) that lists survey companies that open to more countries or worldwide.

  138. PalioC says:

    Hello, I wanted to say that you have made a great job. I would like to ask are the sites from this list exclusively for USA residents or other countries can take surveys too? As I saw that many sites from here give you the option to choose from a list of countries. Does they get any surveys at all or only the USA ones?

    SO i have been doing surveys for at least 6 months and here are my faves FYI: and if anyone joins please put me down as a reference as I do get credit. so send them my e-mail which is [] as a reference. And these surveys are VERY legit that I am putting up i have been paid from all of them. Thanks

    ****1. Creation Rewards.com-very fast way to earn points that convert into cash, check and gift cards.But you have to do the daily surveys to earn the extra points.

    *****2. Surveyspot.com- again, keep checking for surveys everyday even if you do not get e-mailed one. They pay by paypal only.

    ****3. Lightspeed panel-variety of gift cards and also paypal options and sometimes they offer focus groups for cash

    ***4.Ipsos (i-say.com)- takes a while to build your points up but they are good mostly american express gift cards

    ****5. SurveyHead-NOTE: this site takes a while for you to get your money built up and get your reward.

    *****6.Focus pointe global- focus groups, online surveys,telephone surveys they e-mail every couple weeks or evey week depending on your qualifications for studies, pay by check i have done one online study with them, it was fun ;-)

    ***** 7.Synovate Global Opinion Panels-surveys online mainly sometime you will get selected to participate in product testing, pay by check

    ***** 8. Socratic Forum- online surveys pay by check

    ****9. Myview- variety of E-gift cards and regular gift cards

    SquishyCash is legit, and I have been paid from them. They are under a category of sites known as GPTs.

  143. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi MyOCDisMild – SquishyCash is NOT paid survye site – they are mainly a PAID OFFER site although they might have those low paying “daily surveys” just like other all-in-one paid offer sites. I don’t know if the are legit, but just to be safe you can sign up with all the other ones on my list (which I am sure are legit and pay).
    Thanks for your comment and good luck!

  144. MyOCDisMild says:

    Hi. I found this site to be incredibly helpful since I’ve been w/o a job since our economy is so rotten, so I decided that I was gonna give survey sites a try, but there is one that I have been frequenting, and I have no clue as to whether or not they’re legit cause they arent listed on here. It’s called squishycash, and I actually like this site for some reason, please tell me it’s legit!!!!

  145. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi jaberjazz, I never heard of Lockerz.com, but I know swagbucks.com is legit – Jonathan (Jonathan97202) has won and been paid (He twitted about it). Feel free to post the questions on the forum, I am sure Jonathan will have more information on that! :-)

  146. jaberjazz says:

    Hi mlynn! I have a question about 2 websites. Lately, i’ve been hearing about 2 websites called Lockerz.com and Swagbucks.com. I was wondering if you know if they’re legit or not? :-? :

  148. Dusty says:

    Just wanted to thank you again. I have learned more from your site than any of the other sites combined! Love that you give your opinions of the sites and the sites to beware of. I did all of the things that newbies do and I am now a year old for taking surveys. Per your recommendations I have quit the survey sites I reviewed on your site. I kept up with them hoping to get a payoff but realized it would take forever. Stubborn & stupid. Again, thank you

  154. John Morgan says:

    To M.Lynn, hopefully I am correct in thinking that you are the keeper of MySurvey123 website. The information you have provided is invaluable. I am a retiree seeking to meet monthly expenses, and your website has helped me find and contact survey organizations. I also find the comments shared by you and members are most informative. Thanks for all the good work you are doing. I would hope that if I sign up with one of the survey organizations through your site that they provide you proper credit/compensation. Keep up the great work.

  155. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Betty, re YourFreeSurveys – I know that is a little annoying…but again, YFS is also mainly a paid offer sites and they have those low paying "-)aily surveys", however they do pay and legit. So like I said if you receive lot of surveys from "regular" survey sites, you might not have time to do daily surveys. You can still do those when days are slow though. Just my suggestion.

  156. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Betty, cashlagoon is a legit site that pay. But they are a paid offer site and they only have "-)aily" surveys that only pay less than $1.00. If you receive lot of surveys from regular survey panels, I am not sure if you have time to do the low paying daily surveys. Hope it helps.

  157. Betty says:

    dear Mei,
    Is cash lagoon a good site?
    Do i have to buy anything to do their surveys/
    Betty

  158. Betty says:

    Dear Mei,
    The last one on your list #122. YOURFREESURVEYS. I just tried to sign up. They took me through a lot of stuff then said i have to sign up for another site of which one said there is a fee.
    I’m dissappointed. Please respond.

    You are welcome sweetangel! Glad you find the list helpful! Just a reminder: you do NOT need to buy anything to take surveys and get paid!!

Good luck to you!

But I just keep getting asked to buy stuff & when I check my accounts to be paid,there is like $12 in there when I’ve done well over $100 & they say everything is always pending. thanks again for the list, hopefuly I can make some money for me & my kids now.

    Some of these sites are exclusive to Moms with young children. Also sign up for focus groups because they sometimes want you to bring your kids in to try a new toy or food and they’ll pay well for your time. Also, don’t forget to visit the freebie sites and word of mouth sites for tons of free samples. Mlynn has all those sites listed. Good Luck

  182. tony says:

    do not go on my points they dont give you points on it and i been on it two months and still have 145 points on there and i was signing up for everything that was free

  183. Tom R. says:

    Signed up with CashCrate today. Yes you are flooded with offers, but can choose to do the surveys. You can earn 80 cents per survey and take 2 surveys in 24 hrs. They even have bonus surveys worth 75 cents. There is a catch however. First you have to qualify for a survey, then, if you qualify and take the survey, you have to see if you indeed qualified to earn the 80 or 75 cents. If not they invite you to continue until you do qualify. I completed 5 long surveys and never qualified for the 80 or 75 cents. A lot of time wasted, so gave up and cancelled my membership on same day I signed up.

    [quote name=Jeff]Hi, I’m sort of new to this and was wondering does these surveys get to your 1040??[/quote]This is one of those questions that needs to be prefaced with “Check with your accountant” (as if we all have one). This is my opinion for what it’s worth: The short answer is NO. My understanding is that you are considered an independent contractor and thus your income is not taxed. If you’re paid at least $600 by any one company, you should receive a 1099 form from that company. With one or two exceptions your ss# is never known so there isn’t a direct link to your earnings. I’m sure many people report this income in good faith but I’m also sure many do not.

  197. Lee says:

    A focus group is an in-person discussion and interview of participants. The groups generally consist of several people and a moderator who’s job is to ask questions and get feedback. Sessions are usually 1-2 hours long but some can be all day. They pay between $50-$400 depending on subject, time, etc. You might have to try a new food a company is thinking of launching so you and others will sit there, eat, and talk in a room with a 2-way mirror. Shy is not an asset :-) You may have to pick up a product, use it at home for awhile, keep a journal and then come back for the focus group. Some companies are region specific so in addition to the nationwide ones that Mlynn has listed, look for local offices in your area.

  202. mlynn.admin says:

    Okay, I removed OpinionBar from the list. I got a $1 survey from OpinionBar recently, was wondering should I take the survey. Thanks you guys for letting me know the potential danger!

  203. Anonymous says:

    With Opinion Bar, you rate other sites and as part of the surveys you will be redirected to the site you are evaluating in a new window.
    So, I think they will never be able to say they are 100% secure because they can’t guarantee that the partner sites they are having you evaluate would be secure, that would be up to that company having the research done.

  204. moneymaker1008 says:

    Hi, just wanted to warn you that you might want to consider taking Opinion Bar off the list. I signed up with them, tried to take a survey, but my security settings told me that the network they are on is not secure. I did further research and found that other people were having similar issues as well as problems with payment. They might be legit, but it seems as though they have been hacked. At any rate, I don’t think it’s safe to use at this time.

    Hi
    I have a question.
    I noticed one survey company said when you accumulate 1,000 points, they will then send you a check.
    My question is, how many points do I get to complete EACH SURVEY?

    Thanks
    Carol

  206. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Carol,
    All the paid survey sites on this list is legitimate, and you can sign up with them (as many as you feel comfortable), starting with the best on the top. Good luck!

  207. Carol - New to paid surveys says:

    Hi Everyone,
    I am looking for part time income doing some surveys, but don’t know where to start.

    Can someone suggest 2 good Legitimate survey sites? I am new to this.

  208. Shelia says:

    :D

    Pinecone Research is great!!! Payouts are immediate.

  209. sherrie says:

    :P

    I belong to two surveys sites that pay one is Opinion Place and they pay by paypal and the other is Opinion Outpost and they pay by check.

  210. mlynn.admin says:

    Thanks for the heads up Kat! I have corrected it. sorry for the inconvenience.
    Welcome to MySurvey123.com! :cheer:

    hi i was wondering on cash lagoon do they actually have surveys or just offers thanks,
    paul and do they pay by check thanks

  213. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Ruth, MySurvey.com IS on the list, actually it’s #2 on the list as NFO MySurvey.

    You can make nothing after joining zillon surveys if you only joined junk survey sites. The ones on this lists are the real legit ones that actually pay.

  214. Ruth says:

    I joined a zillion surveys but the only one I still belong to and get paid consistently is MySurvey.com I don’t see it on the list, where is it? The rest were a waste of time.

  215. mintyny says:

    does anybody know anything about your free survey?

  216. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Frank, did you registered at MySurvey123.com? If yes – I couldn’t find your account, and Could you please email me (through the Contact Me) your name, and email address and user name (if you still remember), and I will check it out and activate your account manually if I have to. Thanks!

  218. mayanmartha says:

    Hey all….I have never installed the opinion square software but I still get plenty of surveys from them.
    I really like them because even if you dont qualify they have a little game, which is typically worth 25 points.

  219. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Betty, I registered with them over almost 4 years ago – I don’t remember installing any software (maybe I did but I couldn’t remember). I don’t receive many surveys from them – maybe because I didn’t install their software?? :o Anyway I haven’t heard anyone complaining about their software, but if you don’t feel comfortable about installing it, I would suggest just skip them.

  220. Betty says:

    I attempted to register for OPINION SQUARE and i was ask to click to install their softward then I had a notine that this soft ware could damage my computer. I didn’t finish the reg. I wanted to get your advice on this.
    I appreciate your help.
    Thanks,
    Betty

  221. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Betty, I am not sure what’s wrong with SurveyExchange. It seems they have a new system which is not working (couldn’t register), and I tried to login and they said they can’t find my user name! :sad: This is not the first time that SurveyExchange has this kind of problem – last time they changed their company name (I couldn’t remember their old name) and they lost some old member’s accounts. Now this time they lost mine. I couldn’t remember how much I have left in my account but I am sure it’s less than minimum payout.

  222. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Betty, which link you clicked that won’t open?

  223. Betty Sodders says:

    Hi Mei,
    I have a problem as of today. As i continue to sign up with more survey companies, today I clicked to sign up and it won’t open. Not sure where the problem lies. Do you have any idea as to how I should handle it.
    Thanks,
    Betty

  224. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Kevin, I would suggest you sign up with the few focus group companies after #81 at least. :-)

    hi i have joined most of the ones up to #81 can someone tell the good ones past 81 dont want to have to join all to get the good ones

    Hi CC – stay away from Vindale Research – not a survey site. Check out the “Paid Survey Scam” section on this site.

  229. CC says:

    Hey,
    Has anyone heard of Vindale Research?
    I don’t know if this site is legit.
    Thanks

  230. Vonnie D says:

    LiveWire asked for my social security number. I did not sign up.

    What do you all think?

  231. Mei says:

    Hi Vonnie, LiveWire is very legit. I have been paid by them (provided my SSN of course) a couple of times and NO problems whatsoever. However, they only have limited number of surveys (like 2 -3 surveys/year), so if you don’t feel comfortable giving your SSN, there isn’t much to lose.

  232. Vonnie D says:

    #51 on this list – LiveWire asked for a social security number. I did not sign up.

    What do you all think?

  233. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Dot – Yea I have taken surveys for Opinion Place and also been paid (via Paypal).

  234. Dot says:

    Hi, Thank you all for the info. Has any taken any surveys for opinion place? Thank you

  235. Lee says:

    I almost gave up on Survey Spot because I was only getting non-paying surveys. But I kept doing them and then all of sudden they started rolling in. Online focus groups for $20-$30 for an hours time, paid surveys between $1-$5 (sometimes a few a day) and products for testing. My teenager gets lots of paid surveys. It’s not always like this but I make money at least once a week.

  236. Mei says:

    Hi Dot, same thing happened to me… you will get cash surveys – it’s just take a while. Just do some sweepstakes ones when you feel like it and have time. Also you can login to your account and check available surveys.

  237. Dot says:

    Hi, I signed up for survey spot and the only surveys Iam seeing are the ones where you get changes for the sweepstakes. How do you get surveys that you are paid for? Thank you

  238. robertschltz9 says:

    what’s the difference between a Focus Groups and surveys?

  243. Samb05 says:

    Legitimate survey sites never ask for fees. If ever asked a fee, make sure someone you know will vouch for it.

    I appreciate it if you guys name the sites that are paying. Thanks a lot… :-)

  244. Samb05 says:

    [quote name=Mei]Hi,

    They might be legit, however, they ask you to provide your credit card information and monitor your spending habit. I am not sure how many people will be comfortable with that.[/quote]
    This is one of the DON’TS in surveys. Never give any credit card number. Legits don’t ask you that.

  246. Mei says:

    Hi Pearlie,

    Most (almost all) of the paid survey/market research companies listed here pay cash or gift certificates. :-)

    Paid surveys is a great way to make extra cash, you can just do it after work at night while watching tv. :cheer:

  247. Babegrl says:

    When looking at Henry Will’s “View Point Forum”, 2009-02-17 16:44:02 I googled it with a “.com” & a warning came up for a potential virus site. Please be careful when anyone is unable to provide a link & requests your information instead. (For those of you unaware, your computer may be identified by your email.) Please, don’t let this deter you from this site, it could have been a simple error on Henry’s part too.
    Good luck & have fun with the surveys! This site is great!!

    Hi Aline,

    You are welcome! Actually it’s very easy and safe to open a Paypal account. I would suggest you go to paypal.com and take a look. I think there are some survey sites only pay via Paypal.

    Hi Maria,

    Thank you so much for letting me know this! I am so happy and proud that my site is recommended! Now I have to go hunt down the magazine!!

    :zzz

  257. Maria W. says:

    Hi,
    I read about mysurvey123.com in my March/April 2009 magazine titled “Earn Extra Money-Fast!”. I am out of work and need any income I can find. Thank you for being so helpful! Maria W.

  258. Aline says:

    Thank for including how a site pays (check, money order [yes I saw one], or PayPal). This information will make it easier for me choose which sites I want to sign up with since I don’t have a PayPal account and have no idea how it works. :-)

    Bottom line: Better safe than sorry. :-)

  259. Diane C. says:

    :zzz Thank you very much for the effort of putting this valuable info together. I truly appreciate it. I am a participant to many of these sites, but its good to know which ones to avoid.

  260. Eric T says:

    Just found your site and this is an impressive list. Just wanted to say that on the American Consumer Opinions, #4, that you can accumulate a balance and request a cashout now rather than the automatic check being sent after completing a survey.

    thanks for the list

  274. Cynthia FYI says:

    I noticed you dont hv http://www.mysurvey.com on ur site. they are legit. i rcvd a ck which took 6 day to get. it took me 4 wks to earn those points. I probably could hv earned more but I was busy with my other site. Plus MySurvey.com was Shown on TV as the top 10 Legit Paying Free website. Just wanted to shared the wealth…LOL Thx for the world of information.. From Phx AZ

  275. Mei says:

    Hi Angela,

    Thank you very much for the kind the commment and sharing your experience with Vindale Research.

    Best wishes,

  276. Mei says:

    Hi Little d, you are welcome!

  277. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Angela,

    You are right. Majority of the free survey offers from Crash Crate and Quizpoints are not real paid survey sites in my opinion – they are emial harvesting sites that use your email address (and other personal info you provide to them) to send you spam emails or mails.

    One thing you can do to figure this out is check Privacy Policy, and you will know what I mean.

    Thanks for askingthe questions! – It’s a good question.
    :-)

  278. Mei says:

    Hi Kristy,
    Thank you for passing this along.

    However, Technology Board is a panel run by the same company (Decision Analyst) who run ACOP(American Consumer Opinion). I have been paid by them and I am certain they are legit.

    Sorry but I think their security certificate probably is not a stole one, it might be just expired.

    Of course it’s up to you/your husband to decide to sign up or not.

    Some very good IT panels I suggest your husband sign up (all on my list)

    SurveySavvy
    Tech Panel (run by Lightspeed)
    Tech Say (run by GlobalTestMarket)

    Best regards,

  279. Jean M says:

    also you can contact me via email :zzz

  280. Jean M says:

    :-?
    I am really confused.
    I am looking for a site that I can sign up for free and I wouldn’t be involved in any giveaways/sweepstakes. and that you are 100 % sure that they pay you for each survey, asking for the best website you’ve ever used. Thank you so much :-)

  281. Marty says:

    Thanks for all the great survey sites! Most of them pay very well considering the little you have to do to earn the funds. :zzz

  282. Mei says:

    Hi,

    I believe Surveyhead is legit, even though I just joined and have not been paid yet. I used to do LOT of surveys for GoZing, and have always been paid! So I am very confident (almost certain) I will get paid by surveyhead. I am aware that they are converting focusline members. If you join them now(via my site here), you will get sign up $5.00 too.

    Thanks for your comment and I am glad you like my site. Hope to talk to you again!

  283. Hi Mei, says:

    Do you know if the site surveyhead.com is legitimate? They are the original owners of GoZing (which I know is legit), and are converting focusline.com members over. They offer $5 for signup. Because the site is new, I am a little leary of them.

    This site is very well put together. The top 20 on your list are my favorites! I have found quite a few here I didn’t know about, and others I have wanted to try. Thanks so much for the information, Mei!

  284. Mei says:

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for the url. and Yes, that is AMP Survey. I have heard about this site. I am not introducing them because I was concerned about their privacy policy, and last night I checked them again and I think you won’t get paid, they just give you a entry for sweepstakes. And AMP Survey indeed is run by OTX Research.

  285. jeffd150 says:

    Mei, here is the url:

    http://www.ampario.com/content/

    this might be the amp survey that you mentioned, im not sure…

  286. Mei says:

    Hi Jeff,

    Are you talking about amp survey? Can you give me the url of the site? Thanks!

  287. jeffd150 says:

    Ampario – have you heard of this company Mei? i did a few of their suveys and took me to an OTX survey…..just wondering if they pay anything

  288. Mei says:

    Hi Diane,

    You don’t need to worry if you sign up with legit market research and survey sites. Yes they use your address for sending checks..The only time they call you is for phone interview or screening for focus groups. :-)

  289. Diane says:

    Hi, great site. Thank you.
    I’m paranoid about giving my address and phone number. They only use these to send checks right?

  290. Mei says:

    Hi Mike,

    All the survey sites on this list are legit. I usually add reviews and ratings once get paid by them, that’s why you don’t see all of them have reviews, yet. :-)

  291. Mike says:

    are all the surveys on this list legit non-scam sites? or just the ones with the ratings? Thanks.

  292. Mei says:

    Hi Sidney,

    That’s really cool!! Congrats and have fun!!! :zzz

  293. Sidney says:

    Hey, Mei, I just qualified for my first focus group! I never qualify for those things! :D

  294. Mei says:

    Hi Anonym,

    Thank you so much for your help! I just corrected the link. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! :D

  295. Anonym. says:

    Hi again! One more thing! The American Consumer Review is linked to 20/20 rather than its correct review. Hope that helps! Once again, thanks for the GREAT resource! =)

  296. Mei says:

    Hi Anonym,

    Thanks for the heads up! I just corrected the broken link!

    Thanks for the kind comment too!

  297. Anonym. says:

    Hello there! Just so you know, your quizpoints link is linked to the wrong site. :-)

    Also, GREAT site!

  298. Mei says:

    Hi Laure,

    I went to the site but seems the site is down at this moment. I will take a look later.

    However, based on information you provide, I would suggest NOT register/pay them the fee. I am pretty sure that they are just another “membership” site that charge you for a list of paid survey sites (and possible junk spam and scam sites).

    6 fig a year? No kidding! :zzz

  299. Laure Zimmermann-McNeff says:

    Do you have an information of homesurveyworkers.com? The fee is 2.95b plus another 1x fee of 39.95. They promise $10 or $20 a survey with a potential of 8 a day for 6 figs a year.
    I am going thru your list of free sign ups and have registered with a dozen. Has anyone had success with paying this webistes fees and getting much back in return.

  300. Mei says:

    Hi Prabu,

    You are welcome! :-)

  301. Prabu says:

    Thank you so much!!!!

  302. Mei says:

    Hi Michael,

    I am glad you find what you are looking for. Good luck with the surveys!

  303. Michael says:

    Hi, Great site ,Im from Australia and have been looking for a site like this for two weeks,thanks very much for all the sites, hope I can now keep up with the surveys…….regards

  304. Mei says:

    Hi Stacey,

    You are welcome and thanks for the compliment!

    Hi,

  306. Mei says:

    Hi Markus,

    Thanks so much for sharing the info! I just sign up with them!
    Will add it to the survey list!

    Thanks again!!

    Yes, I love hunting down the good new survey sites! :D

  309. mark says:

    this site has been pretty helpful thanks keep adding new surveys sites as they come along your doing great :D

  310. Mei says:

    Hi Lynn,

    You are welcome! I am glad it’s helpful.:-)

    Regarding tiktik cash, I would NOT sign up with them and would NOT recommend them to anyone at all! They have a high payout requirement of $100. That is definitely a red flag.

    I think you are probably right, they are just another Panda.

    Best regards!

  311. Lynn says:

    Hi,

    Thanks for this site! It is sooo helpful.

    Do you know anything about tiktik? I can’t figure out if they are a scam or not. They remind me of Panda. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

  312. Angela says:

    Hi;
    I noticed Cash Crate and Quizpoints have many survey companies that you can sign up for as free offers. Some of them you do not have listed anywhere. Is that because they are not worth signing up for? Just wondering since I use your sight as a judgement tool on whether a company will be a good survey site or not.

  313. Kristy says:

    I just wanted to let you know that when my husband( an IT professional) went to sign up for the TechnologyBoard it stated that its certificate was a stolen one. So it is an illegal website. I just thought I would pass that along.

  314. Little d says:

    Thanks Love this site has helpped! ;-)

  315. Angela says:

    Hi;
    Your site has been so great! I have been using it to sign up and learn about different sites beforehand. I just wanted to share an expereince. I was asked by a survey site to sign up for Vindale Research and I would get cash credited to my account for completeing the free offer. I did this. My experience with Vindale has been poor. They send you surveys to earn money but you have to buy/sign up for a product and evaluate it -all of mine indicated a credit card was required. Then if you do so they give you money –most of the time very little over the cost of obtaining the product/service. It seems like a scam to get people to purchase items they would not otherwise purchase. Plus afterwards you have to go back and cancel services or future shipments of the product in order to not continue the billing -a time consuming pain to do. Hope this saves others from wasted time with this site.
