Online surverys?

I've heard of taking surveys online and getting paid, the 2 that I just recently heard about are cashcrate and fusioncash..Has anyone taking any off either or those or any other ones? Any information about others, and how secure they are. Any information on taking online surveys and getting paid would help out greatly! Thanks

  • The ONLY one I trust and actually recieve a check from every time I take a survey is Pinecone research. It is hard to get in though. You have to find one of their banners or get in during an open sign up period. You can go to and there are ratings of all of the different survey sites and you can get a better judgement off of that. HTH.

  • I have tried so many; the only way you make $ with alot of them is to buy something or you have to have a certain amount of $ made before they send you a check. It's not worth it. I finally found something I'm making $ with; DiamondCreek Candles. Check out the link below and let me know if you are interested. I can have you up and running in no time!

  • Don't do it. All it is is a way to gather your information and sell it to other sites. You will get scammed. It is a big waste of your time.

  • all I know is that I still get those dang telemarketing calls ever since I started with cashcrate last year. I quit doing that very shortly after I signed up. I have no patience for those things. I put too much time into it only to make a few bucks. Plus the fact that I accidentally forgot to cancel one of those stupid offers I did in order to make a whopping $5. So I was charged $35 I think it was for some google service thing. My fault for not canceling in time of course. But it's too time consuming. I stick with affiliate programs and network marketing. Sure you gotta invest money to have a home based business, but for me it's so worth it to make several hundred per week versus a few hundred a month. To each their own though.
