Are online survey sites worth it? I'm looking to make some extra cash and I want to know if they are legitimate or worth it.

  • It's not so much that they are not legit.  It's that really there are better things to do out there.  I have done them all.  Surveys are just too much work, for the little you get.  I have some better ideas for you:

     I have created a series of work at home articles on eHow.  I also have a list of companies that hire for work at home via the computer.  You can find all these listings at my website:

     Or in my Journal here at Cafemom:

  • while it may not be for everyone, I have trouble staying focused on 1 thing like building a business, and I'm not disaplined enough to stick with it. I have found that cashcrate among others are great, and do pay out. They don't pay much so it is best to use a couple. I like it too because I can do it when I want, and can skip around as much as I want. Check it out

  • Many are legit. But unless you are in to working an hour for $.80 it's not worth it...

    Check this out instead... I spend MUCH less than I did with GPT & Survey sites and earn residual income! Right now I'm up to $3K a month!
