    Making cash from online survey sites - new MSE guide 9th Jan 13 at 2:28 PM



    Hi all, we've updated our Survey Sites guide to help you make cash from online surveys.

    How did you find the info? If you're a survey stasher, do you have any other sites you'd add?

    Thanks
    for your help!

    I've just had the most rewarding Toluna survey, they were offering me 1000 points (worth about 18p) to sit and watch a "brand new" tv program lasting 45 minutes.

    That is the thing. It is really worth to do spreadsheet in excel and learn how much are points worth in each of the panel.
    If I see something like that I never would complete it, because that would just make them feel that paying low is ok. That is my mantra at least.
    On the other hand I really do not know how they can believe that answers will be genuine if they pay so poorly.


    Hi I liked the sound of earning additional cash through these Survey sites, and completed registration with My Survey and Ipsos. Suddenly this week, My Survey have made my account "inactive" after I have completed several surveys from them over last couple of weeks and started to built up points. Queried status with them, and they replied "there were problems with the data provided during my registration"??? Funny they originally accepted my registration with no problem, and now suddenly found out now - I suspect it's a case of not wanting to pay out. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME

    My Survey tech issues
    Hi,
    I don't usually have problems with My Survey , has anyone done the diary this week and had it crash when it is nearly at the end?
    I contacted them re this on day one and day two but just got a generic reply.
    So annoying when you are genuine and have taken time to do the task

    I haven't had any problems with My Survey and agree with Eldaniel that you need to work out what points are and whether it is worth it.

    I personally won't bother with Toluna as points are low value or Inbox pounds as they only pay 1p a minute typically and their surveys are supposed to take 25 mins , when they take 45 mins

    I also jettison any survey company that just enters you into a prize draw as I think my time should be rewarded rather than just being entered into a lottery.

    As soon as I hit the pay-out with Toluna, I'm going to ditch them

    Survey success rate of less than 5%, the most annoying thing is with financial surveys where they ask you which bank your with (Halifax) and kick you straight out.

    Seems survey sites don't like it if you bank with Halifax.

    Banana survey ipsos
    In July I was telephoned by Robert from what I thought was Ipsos Surveys, of which I am a member. He invited m to complete a telephone survey in the following week to earn 28 in points. A young lady phoned, I spent 45 mins completing the survey but - guess what - no points - Ipsos claim not to know anything. Has anyone else any experience of this.

    Unfortunately not. 28 for a 45 minute survey should really have rung alarm bells. The average 45 minutes online Ipsos survey might earn about 2-3 of points. Sorry to hear you've been the victim of a scam x

    Toluna can take as long as 6 weeks to credit the points to your account. They do credit, it just takes a long time.

    I'd recommend OnePoll as the surveys are typically short and are really easy. ValuedOpinions is one that pays out quite quickly in my opinion (every month I get something from them, at least 10 but sometimes 20 or more, depending on the surveys) so I'd recommend them.

    Thanks I will sign up to them

    I logged into a survey this morning and it wanted to some how log into my phone to see what I did all day, as anyone done this.

    I tend to stay away from this kind of surveys. First of all the rewards tend to be low to giving them so much of your privacy and second reason is that very often is extremely hard to track/proof your participation and get the actual reward.

    Hmm, strange. Usually when you reach 40 they won't send you more surveys until you payout this 40 (It happened to me twice like that), but not before that.

    This happened to me at 39.90, lasted for 3 working days. Then I received about 8 surveys in one day, cashed out my 40 a week or two back and already back to 3.30

    It'll come back, I wonder if it is something they do to allow them time to check our accounts before we reach redemption?

    Hello Katykicker, I often read your posts as I usually get answers to my questions without having to post, you are very helpful .
    Could I ask how long you need to do onepoll before you cash out? I'm thinking of joining.

    Thanks It varies per person, I find that I can cashout twice a year, sometimes three times if I put more effort in.

    Recently I have been logging in daily and according to my online spreadsheet I have been making somewhere between 1.50 and 3.50 most weeks Monday-Friday so on target for 3 cashouts a year - which isn't bad really!

    Hello, I'm new to this so I hope I have posted in the right place.

    Has anyone heard of PennyForum.net? I have just received a leaflet inviting me to take part in Focus Groups, Home usage tests etc, "earn up to 100 per session". Just wondered if anyone has any thoughts? It seems to be owned and operated by PeoplePeople UK. I don't want to get involved in any scams!

    100 a session. That alone sets bells ringing.
    I've not heard of them but it sounds to good to be true.
