How can I get paid for taking online surveys?

Has anyone filled out online surveys for Greenfield Online? I signed up to do this about 3 months ago. I have taken the random surveys that I receive through my email address. I have yet to be paid for one of them. At the end of every survey I receive a message thanking me for participating in the survey and informing me that I did not qualify, but that I will be entered in the latest sweepstakes. Personally I think it's a joke. I never qualify, therefore I never get paid and I'm entered in some sweepstakes I know nothing about. I would appreciate some feedback.

  • It sounds like a scam! Every survey site that I tried in the past was a complete joke! They are a total waste of your time! Find something else to do from home....imagine where you would be now if you had started something else 3 months ago instead of wasting your time with the survey sites. I am sorry...I am not trying to sound mean but I went throught the same thing as you are going through now and I don't want anyone else to have to go through it too! If you want to make a GOOD income from home you are going to either start a home business or do babysitting or something. Surveys don't work! You CAN make money from home! You jsut have to find the right thing for you and at least now you KNOW that it is NOT survey sites!

  • There are so many out there, it’s hard to find the right one! I have made a list of places that I have used (only free ones), I know they're all legit because I don’t list them until I've been paid by them. You can see my list and details on these places at

  • I have actually been paid from Greenfield. The only problem I have is that you have to quailify to get paid. I have gotten paid from surveyspot. So, if you want to get paid for doing surveys you have to sign up for a bunch of programs. Check out my website for ways that I make money online. I also have payment proofs! Good Luck!

  • I've done all of that and have never gotten anything from them that's why I am where I am now. I work from home now and i don't have to even sell or really do much. It's fun and I love every minute of it. You can take a look forself go to or you can vist it's just something to think about.
