  • I wasted hours and weeks doing online surveys. They said they'd send my $40 check 8-10 weeks LATER, as long as I continued to do surveys. I worked with about 10 different survey companies. I think it's a scam. But maybe it's not.

  • I've tried alot of survey companies and they all want me to buy something. Thats not getting paid in my opion, so I would have to say no, we have just wasted our time.

  • I have heard of alot of moms talk about this and even some candle members and they said it was not worth my time.
    So I stick to my candle biz and stay at home with my son.
