Online Surveys - The Good, Bad, & Ugly
 
There are lots of sites on the internet offering online survey opportunities
that claim to pay cash, give prizes, let you earn points to get incentives, offer product testing, etc. It can be a great way to bring in some extra cash or get free gifts but these are not all legitimate sites.

Some turn out to be just a listing of other survey sites. Some require payment for you to see their lists (never pay to get URLs for
survey sites...use a free search engine to find them yourself).

I recommend that you don't join a survey site that isn't located in the US.
That way if you ever encounter a legal problem with them, you would have better luck settling it if the site is governed by US laws.

Companies that ask you to complete offers as surveys: That's up
to the individual whether they like to sign up for offers to get freebies,
GCs, or whatever the offer may be. Sometimes you have to sign up
for several things in order to qualify for the freebie or GC.

Be careful and do your research before you join any. Here's a link to a very
helpful site where you can read reviews of just about every survey site and you can post your ratings of sites www.surveypolice.com/

TAX FACT: Currently US Tax Law allows you to earn up to $600 annually
from any one company and you don't have to claim it on your income tax.
So monitor your earnings from each survey company you are registered with
in order to avoid paying taxes on the earnings.

And, in case you are wondering, yes, I do surveys. But I always check the company out before signing up. Hope this information is helpful to you.

I've done a few surveys that you get paid for over the years. I can't remember the name of the place, but I still get emails from them randomly. I think I made 16 bucks over 4 or 5 surveys. Not too bad considering I didn't have kids so I didn't have anything else to do, haha.

I do surveys off and on. For a couple of years I did a few surveys for Harris Polls and had never checked to see how many points that I had. I wanted to get a DVD of "The Green Mile" and almost bought it, but just happened to go check my points and what I could get for them and they had the movie and I had enough points. I got it Free from them, they sent it right out to me. So I am happy with that site.

I have received 2 $5.00 checks from American Consumer Opinion and also did 3 product surveys for them. I got to keep the products I tested and was paid $12.00 for each one.

I tried to do "Survey Spot" for about 6 years, but never "Qualified" for any of their surveys! (Could this have been age discrimination?) It would go along fine until it asked for my age, then suddenly I didn't qualify. I unsubscribed from this one finally. I GUESS US OLD FOLKS DON'T BUY ANYTHING AND DON'T USE ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES!

I've had similar happen to me at Survey Spot. I qualify for about every 5th survey and they aren't the paying ones either.

I did win $10 in a drawing at one of the surveys sites. Got their email congratulating me and said the check would arrive in 7-10 days. After
2 months passed and no prize, I wrote to them and got some lame excuse
that that particular drawing had problems and they withdrew it. I say, suck it up and pay off the prize winners. The problem was at their end, so why should winners be penalized?
