    Yep, very good site. The surveys i've done with them are normally completely different from some of the nonsense ones you get on Global Test Market, Swagbucks etc. A lot of them are about psychology, intelligence rather than consumer opinions which is interesting. It also pays better than any of the other survey sites I've used except Pinecone.

    Have only been with them two or three weeks, but have already reached minimum Paypal payment level of 5. HoweverPaypal charges are deducted if requesting payment lower than 20.

    Interesting surveys which are quite well paid for the time it takes to do them.

    Along with Populus Live, Prolific Academic is my favourite survey site, purely because the surveys are so interesting and different (and thought-provoking!) to the surveys you get everywhere else. Payout is almost instant too. I have only been with them since November but have already cashed out over 60! Highly recommend waiting until you have 20 before you cash out as you don't get hit with Paypal fees then.

    As name suggests you are answering surveys to help researchers with their research. So it is different than survey sites in some ways. Pays well and they are also friendly but I'm afraid will be overrun by users soon.

    Plus, I created a thread about them here and it was deleted by beloved MSE and now they are advertising it.
