surveys online

has anyone ever actually done the surveys online and really gotten paid for it? or is it just a gimmick like everything else?

  • I did surveys in 2007-08. I didn't get paid money for them, but built up points and traded for "prizes" like a $20 Itunes gift card. Now I can't remember what else I got, but I like surveys so I thought it was worth it.

  • totally gimmick. i have signed up for just about everyone one of those things and have never been paid a dime. frustrating! if you are just wanting a little cash on the side, you could always do what i do. i work with a wellness company and i do marketing and set up new customer accounts. its actually a lot of fun. its not a get rich quick thing, but if you are just wanting a little extra each month it can definitely help with that. is the website if you want to take a look. my sister also did cha-cha where she would reword questions so that they were grammatically correct to be answered. apparently she did fine making a little extra doing that, although i dont know how popular it is now. istheir website if you want to check them out.
