  • Are you looking for ways to make money? How about eBay? That would bring in more money for you than a survey....

  • good luck with that one- I have yet to hear about anyone actually making any money doing it- I know I didn't have any luck with it

  • This is my link for the one I do every once in a while:

    It isn't a ton of money, but I make between $100-$200 a month doing them here and there. Usually I do at least one a day, but I don't put much time into it, so I'm sure if you put more time into it you might be able to make a little more than that. Some require a credit card, some don't. For example, there are a lot that ask you about your home or grocery purchases that are just questions, but some are product evaluations...and those require a card. I have done evaluations for things like gamefly and netflix where you get paid the amount of one month's subscription plus extra, but they have to have something on file in case you don't return the stuff. Never had any problems, though.

    They pay out twice a month, and you have to have earned $50 for each pay out or it just carries over until the next one when you reach $50.

  • I've been taking online surveys for a year and a half. I haven't gotten rich, but I've saved just over $1300 toward my dream vacation, plus gotten a few hundred dollars in Amazon gift cards and other prizes. Also, I've tested all sorts of products at home, from steak sauce and soup to diapers, wipes, laundry soap, and paper towels. My trick is to sign up for a lot of sites, maybe a few dozen, and take many, many surveys. There are plenty of scams out there. You'll see an increase of mail in your junk folder, so you might want to create a separate e-mail account just for doing surveys. Never pay a fee to join a survey site!

    The Memolink site is also a place where you can earn points for shopping at tons of stores. Good luck!

  • Mechanical Turk is another legit survey site (Google it). I do it when I have the time and did it exclusively when I was out of work. Not tons of money for each survey, but it adds up. GL

  • I take surveys with 2 companies but the pay is not on a monthly basis. I usually cash in at the end of the year and from both companies last year it was $80 for the whole year.

    I do not know if anyone makes a living taking surveys online since most you have to qualify for and it can be hard or if someone does not have time to complete surveys in certain time limit than you are no longer eligible for it plus to cash out you have to be at a certain dollar amount.

    Some do studies and this is a way to earn alot of points but they are random.

    The 2 companies I am with and know they are legit and will pay are ( referral is needed to sign up and this is not available now)
