  • I'm sure some of them are, but I got frustrated... I hear that the way to do it is to be registered with the legitimate ones and to stay organized, also be wary of any that require you to spend any money.

  • NO! I tried every site I could find. Even the ones that are willing to pay $1 each take 20-30 mins to fill out... You end up making $1-$3 an hour... Do ChaCha it's better money! They pay you .10 per question but it takes about 30secs- 1min to do each question...

  • Go to Their recommendations and ratings are pretty good. Start with as many of the top 10 as you can and see how it goes from there.

    You're not going to get rich doing surveys but you can make some pocket money. Cash compensation ranges from $1 to $5. Other types of rewards some survey companies do are earning only points to be used for purchases on their website and some only offer sweepstakes.

    I think if you do surveys because they're fun and provide pizza money, you'll enjoy it. But if you need to make some money, I wouldn’t waste your time.
