  • I signed up for two, one was Surveyspot, and I honestly can't remember the other one. The surveys took a LOT of time, and the "points" I accumulated (to receive gift cards or cash) didn't amount to much. I did them for almost 6 months, everyday, and never received enough points to get anything. I did get a free set of Oil of Olay products to test - so that was nice.

  • You'll put a lot more work into it than you'll get out of it.

  • It's just not worth the time and effort, not to mention the spam. There are other things to do out there to make money at home. I have lots of ideas and opportunities in my Blog: Mavi's Home Work

  • My husband found one that pays us $3 per survey and we do about 3 per month. Other than that there are other sites you can earn gift cards on that are legitimate. We have earned over $500 in gift cards to restaurants. They do come in handy.

  • I agree with the above... most surveys online, when you break them down, end up paying MAYBE $6 an hour. It is unrealistic to make a career out of it, but if you have the time and patience, it's fun for some play money. I have actually found that I added money back into my budget with a little creativity and some online money saving sites. I've listed all my favorites on here. Seriously, I've walked out of drug stores with more money in my pocket than I spent. As a recent stay-at-home mom, this is far more worth my time than the survey thing.
