      True, you can make money taking paid surveys but from my experience and what I've heard from others, it only pays you a few dollars here & there. So unless you enjoy being questioned to death for not a lot of earnings, then paid surveys are really just not worth it IMO. I value my time and have gotten into doing paid focus group market research studies that pay much much more. is where I learned about this at. You should try it I'll bet you will earn much better than with paid surveys.

      I agree that the internet has hundreds of survey websites that are actually scams. Joining legitimate online survey panels and avoiding scams shall be the top priority! One should remember that "if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is a scam". Online paid surveys can be a side activity that generates a steady income of more than $200 from the comfort of the home for anyone (18+) who can commit at least 40 hours per month. Surveyhead (international), Opinion Outpost (US & Canada), and Global Test Market (international) are my favorites.
