Are there legitimate survey companies out there?

I am still on a quest and have been to find work at home jobs or businesses. I have talked to a couple of nice people about Work At Home United and Ameriplan. While I am considering these options I am still looking for other ways to supplement or/and eventually replace my income. I am interested in finding out more information about the survey companies. I am not looking for any get rich quick schemes, as I know, without exploring them that they are all scams. I just want to find a way that I can be home more and make money while I am home. I am a single mom that works 7 days a week and I have done so for the past 10 years. I am tired and burned out! I want to be home at least a couple of days a week with my children. I would like to eventually turn an idea I have about a business from home into a reality but at the moment I do not have the money to get started. I would appreciate any helpful information.

  • I agree with bugandsmiles - I have tried them and never made any money on them but ended up with a huge back pain. Some of them will have you sit there for an hour completing surveys and the only thing you end up with is like 1200 more emails requesting that you fill out their survey - and I am giving you a conservative #!!

  • Survey sites will spam you and put you in a drawing for the chance to win money. Not legit if you ask me.
