    This is based on a 6 second look at the main page, so I could be completely wrong.

    I spotted this on the main page

    Popular surveys

    • Evaluate a book club and their choice of book offerings for children.
      Payment - $65.00
    • Evaluate the sign-up process of a popular web site.
      Payment - $30.00
    • Evaluate a new cell phone technology.
      Payment - $5.00
    Looks to me like it's not getting paid to do surveys, but getting paid to sign up to things and giving your opinion.

    And I think you will have to pay to sign up to those things.

    How it works

    1. Request the product or service. You decide which products you want to review
    2. Evaluate the product. Try it out, then fill out a short survey based on your experience.
    3. Get paid. We add money to your vindale research account.
    Sounds to me like you join/buy something through their affiliate link and they say they will pay you for doing it.

    But I bet you have to pay out more than you make.

    And then there's this

    Review products and take simple online surveys
    Make a difference by sharing your opinion
    Earn great rewards
    Keep the products you review
    Review products, but do you have to pay for them first? Keep the products that you review, how do you review a book club, and keep it?

    I would approach this site with extreme caution.

    Sorry for the disjointed post, I had 3 things in mind but typed them in the wrong order.

    Thanks Karna, i though the pay was too good to be true. But i must say, the design of the website is amazing for a scam site. Im used to poor designs, not this.
    MSE allowed me to see the light
