My Review

Harvard Business School hosts some very interesting psychology and social studies. Payments are range from $10 to $30. For me, I receive their “alert” emails telling me there are study available at their site (some people prefer to check their website themselves), and I login and sign up for studies that are hosted online – most of their studies are hosted on campus though.

I have done several studies/surveys for them, and I highly enjoyed the experience – they are interesting and fun to do. Usually they pay cash (money order), but recently I was paid $20 Amazon Gift certificate for a survey.

UPDATE: I haven’t heard from them for a long time, not sure they have online studies anymore.

  1. This is the only lab where I haven’t gotten paid, and they haven’t been very responsive either. I feel like I’m begging for the money I was told I would get. At this point I’m accepting that they just won’t pay me for my time. Don’t know how common the issue is but it’s not worth it.

    • Hi sorry to hear you have trouble getting paid. I would suggest give them a little bit more time and follow up. I haven’t heard from them for a long time, but I never had any problems with payment. Good luck!
