Paid Survey's are they still worth it?

    Can you tell me please if the threshold is 1000 a year is it still declarable if it's our only income?

    Very few survey sites are worth it IMO. I stick solely to Populuslive, Testableminds and Prolific. Only the former is really a survey site tbh. I've tried all the others and they tend to not pay well enough or send you round in circles forever without ever qualifying. If Populuslive had more regular surveys and an immediate payout option they would be a 10/10, given their £2 per 10 mins pay rate, which is fantastic.

    There has only ever been a few good survey sites so I don't think they've declined that much even though some have. For example, OnePoll now screens out a lot even though it used to be reliable when it had short surveys.

    I used to get regular surveys from YouGov, about 2-3 per week, but I haven't recieved any survey invites at all in the last 6+ months. Have other people had this issue?
