Has anyone ever got paid to take surveys online? Is that a joke or do you really get money for it?

  • I've been with Opinion Outpost for a almost 6 months and so far I've made about $15. Most survey sites pay you in sweepstakes, though, like Lightspeed Panel. I make way more money with ChaCha, at least $100 a month, but it's not a survey site. I also have my own home business: DiamondCreek Candles, and that is what I really enjoy doing :D

  • I have made $144 from 17 surveys from survey savvy. Please use my referral link, you get paid for referrals too!

  • It's not really that you don't get paid, it's more like it's impossible for make anything.  You put in alot of time and effort, for really nothing.  Also, I found that it was a way of spamming you.  Your email gets loaded with spam because they are really searching for email addresses and your home addresses as well, as these are all requirements for most surveys.

    If you'd like to make a little money, do it legitimately.  I have put together a series of work at home articles, containing great information about How to Work at Home, and several links and ideas you  might enjoy reading.
