  • I used to do surveys through I have recieved checks from them too so I know they're real. :) I just got tired of it and didn't have time since I started working outside of the home again. You can earn faster if you have friends who want to do them as well and they can sign up via your referral and then you get a percentage for every survey they complete also. :)

    Good luck and always make sure you check any business you affiliate yourself with on the Better Business Bureau. :)

  • Nope not worth it. Each survey gives you points to use twards entering to win something or pay 5-50 cents per survey ONLY if you qualify for it. Just when you think your taking a survey you find out you were just taking a PRE-survey but don't qualify for the actual survey and several attemps to qualify for other surveys gets you nowhere either. Anyone who actually accumulates enough to be paid end up accumulating the money by 1. getting idiots to sign up thru thier link, 2. doing "offers" that claim to be free but end up being a "trial period" that you have to give your CC number for and try to remember to cancel before your trial is up not only that but some require you to not cancel until the last day of your trial or even make you go beyond it to get the credit, points, money or whatever. So no so called paid surveys are just a bunch of bullshit.

  • is a site that I joined, you can make a few bucks there, I make about 25.00 a month, they are a point based blog site, you get points for referring friends, (I don't know how to do this), you get points for answering a question everydaay, points for writing a blog, points for everbody that comes and reads it, and points for reading other peoples blogs! If you go and sign up, if they ask who told you about them, I would appreciate it if you told them it was Alice Wheeler, we'll see if I get any referral points!

  • Honestly, I think they are all legit. They just pay next to nothing. You'll spend a lot of time for little reward.
