  • It's really not a lot of extra cash, but I have 3 survey sites that I have used for years now and have been paid from. They are and
    I have proof of payment from surveyspot and lightspeed panel if you want me to pm those to you. Opinion Outpost pays by check or Debit card through CitiBank? I ahve only used check through them and I don't have copies of the checks. The other 2 pay by paypal and I still have those listed on my account. I have tried hundreds of different survey sites and those are the ones I use the most and the ones that I've been paid by. GL

  • Yes, but it takes a while to make a reasonable about of cash and the whole process is tedious. Not only are the surveys up to 45 minutes long for a buck or two, out of the 15/day or so that they send you, you usually only qualify to take and earn money from 1-2 of them if even that. I did make $80 doing it once, but it took about 3 months. Worth it I guess if you have a lot of down time and aren't using it to supplement income.

  • Funny though I belong to all of those and more and trust me there is not one of them that does what they say.

  • So do they send the check to your house or do you have to have an account with citi bank?

  • If you are looking for a little extra money, why not do some freelance writing work? Also there are programs like Amazon Mechanical Turk, just make sure you search for jobs that pay over 1.00 otherwise it's not worth your time. Also, if you have an iPhone there is an app called Field Agent. Those surveys can pay up to $11.00 for a little bit of work. Most of the time, it simply requires going into your local store and taking a picture or two. I earned $11.00 for literally two minutes in Walmart! It's nothing to get rich off of course, but it's something. I also blog about work at home ideas and opportunities when I see them on the internet.  You can check those out too.  On the left hand side of the page, I have listed sites which pay via Paypal and those that do not.  You can check that out at Mavi's Home Work

  • I tried this several years ago and made nothing. Most require you buy something (a subscription, for example) or recruit other people.
