Where are the real survey sites?

    I know there are tons of them out there. But most of them are like Zoom Panel where you get points and there is no way to turn them into cash, just gift cards and other worthless crap. And there are other "survey" sites like My Points where you get almost no surveys at all and the ones you do are worth like .05% of points you'd need to get the most crappy reward and still no cash, most of the points you earn are from BUYING OTHER CRAP from other sites.

    So far, I've found Lightspeed Panel and Survey Spot as sites that at least will send you surveys, for points, that turn directly into paypal payments. But even then, they let you go through tons of surveys and say you don't qualify at the end after you've answered most of the questions.

    So anyway, does anyone know more like lightspeed and survey spot but maybe a bit better at what they offer?...

    Hi Codeguru,

    There are many legitimate paid survey sites like Lightspeed and Surveyspot, such as NFO MySurvey, Global Test Market, Opinion Outpost, Pinecone Research, Toluna, American Consumer Opinion, Brand Institute, Ipsos.....Currently I am with over 100 paid survey sites (all listed on my website)...Those are the real legit survey companies I found over the years (I have been taking paid surveys for over 5 years). Take your time sign up with all of them or as many as you feel comfortable, you will get a lot more paid surveys. Good luck!

    Of you don kind me going a littlt off topic. Are paid surveys worth it. I find that most sites are the same surveys so you can max out easy. They all seem like ploys to get you to sign up for trial
    periods with the hopes you forget to cancel them. Please educate me.

    Hi, the ones that get you to sign up offer trials are NOT paid surveys. those are paid offers (you get paid for signing up offers) which is totally different from paid surveys. Real legitimate paid surveys are market research surveys that market research companies pay you (consumers) for your opinion on services and products etc, it's totally free no fee whatsoever and you are the one get paid for your time and opinion. Hope it helps.

    Thanks for that list, I will check out all of those. I've made around $33 bucks so far with just survey spot and light speed in around 2-3 weeks, and I don't even know what I'm doing yet, so they are worth it. You just need to make sure the surveys they have you take are ones that actually give points and money. No sense in knocking yourself out for just entries to sweepstakes you will never win and I suspect don't even exist.

    Hmm, well I've tried a few, but the best one I've seen past these two is quicksurvey panel. They have a bunch of .50-.90 survey links you can attempt to take every day and whatever money that you make you can simply dump into paypal no matter what amount. That's the kind of site everything should be. If anyone knows another site like that, not counting daily survey panel since it's just quick survey for less money using a point system, please speak up...

    Hiya,

    There are some good survey sites that will pay you money. I am on Global Test Market, Ipsos, Cashcrate and a few others. They are the ones that pay me and you can earn from them.

    I wish you luck

    I see what you mean, a lot of different sites are drawing surveys from the same pools. But I've signed up for at least 10 sites now and am getting the hang of which ones to go to and when for the best deal. But I almost feel like I'm hitting a brick wall now, every site I check out seems to be driven by purchasing stuff from other sites or credit card offers with little or no surveys. And those sites are notorious for using the common survey pools and completely ripping you off in regards to rewarding you for them. I know I keep repeating myself but I'll list ones I find that work well, and I hope other people will do the same. Surveys are the real money maker and there should be a list of sites that are at least 80% survey driven, not just a list of online offers sites that are "great"...

    When I first started online, surveys were my first option. It sounded so simple! But I quickly found out that, while you might be able to make SOME money with them (if you can even find the legit ones), it was never going to allow me to make the kind of money I needed to make a living.

    In my opinion, they're not even close to as lucrative as all the ads say.

    Planet pulse is one of the best survey site I found. They dont send surveys very often, but they are easy to qualify. International members are welcome, but the survey targets mainly people from south east asia.

    I would have to say the top reliable paying survey sites are:

    www.synovate.com
    www.harrispoll.com

    I probably use FGI Research the most, they pay your directly through pay pal and have monthly sweepstakes, I won one so it is definitely legit.

    Hope that helps!

    I've never heard of quicksurvey panel before. Do they only have the small daily surveys or do they send out survey invites for lengthier, higher paying surveys?

    To add to the list here, some other good survey sites are MySurveys, SurveySavvy, American Consumer Opinion Panel and OnlyCashSurveys.

    I think most people who want to work online have tried paid surveys at one time or another. I found several sites that actually paid cash but you have to think about whether your time to do a 30 or 40 minute survey is worth the .25 or .50 cents they pay you.

    I make a lot of money with www.awsurveys.com but they rarely post new surveys. Minimum cash out is $75.

    You can also try www.opinionoutpost.com it's one of the top paying surveys online.

    Hope this helps!!!
