Paid Survey Tips & Notes:
1. You may notice that there aren’t hundreds of survey sites on this list – this is because I only list those legit and good 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.
2. I suggest you sign up with all the survey sites listed here or as many as you feel comfortable – because the more survey sites you belong to, the more surveys you will receive.
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 and fill out additional and more details panel profiles.
4. I add legitimate new survey sites whenever I find them. I also review this list at least once a month to make sure all survey sites listed here are still active and all links are working. Please feel free to drop me a comment if know any good legit survey panels not listed here or you find any broken links or any survey sites that are “dead” and should be removed from the list, thank you!
