has any one earned any money on the survey sites if so what ones are good.

i am a stay at home mom. i would like to earn some money so we can do some family outtings this summer. i was just wondering about the survey sites. do they really pay and if so do you have to sign up for things to get credit for it. i know there are a lot of sites on there for credit cards and schooling and other thing that i just do not need. i would just like to earn a little moeny so i can do things with my children. i would love to babysit but live too far out in the country for any one to bring there children to my house the people that live by use do not have any kids for me to watch and if they do there moms do not work they work on the family farm. i am not that type of person that can go door to door or have party's to sell any thing and i just do not get around that much to see people to try to sell things to them. just have dial up internet. any idea's of any jobs that i can do at home

  • Hi, I am making $5 a day with this site, not a lot but working on getting referrals so I can make way more.
    They pay daily and I enjoy getting my money every single day. ..

  • I belong to Inbox Dollars and they do pay, just not much. I suppose if you qualify for the surveys (I generally do not) you could make more $$, but I only get the .02 for opening the emails. I have earned $32.00, but it took me the better part of a year to do it; however, I don't seek out extra surveys to do and just stick with whatever they send to my email.

    I also belong to, which pays better, but you have to use what you earn to buy stuff off their rewards lists. If you want to fly somewhere, you can earn airline tickets, but I mostly just get free magazines. Again, I only do whatever they send to my email.

    It takes me all of 5 minutes or so to click on the messages from both sites and it's more of a hobby thing than a money-making thing for me, but I suppose you could make more out of it if you put your mind to it.

  • I've read posts in some of the groups about people making money from survery sites so I thought I'd give it a try a few weeks ago. I joined Cash Crate and Panda Research and this is what I concluded from my experience: for the amount of time I spent filling out surveys, I was paid next to nothing; I had to use an e-mail and sometimes a phone number in order to complere the surveys which has resulted in a lot of unwanted junk e-mail and numerous phone calls from people trying to sell me something; and I had to make so much on the site (I think about $20 a month) before I could even get paid. So, unless you have a lot of time to spare to make little money, try to find another way to make money from home. That's just my opinion. Good luck!
