    Are all survey sites scam?

    There are plethora of survey sites which demands to give you money if you fill some forms and do some sign ups like Cashcrate. Do all these sites are scam? What is your experience?

    I can speak for what I have used and out of all of them mindfield is the only one I am or have had good luck with. The thing about them though is they only take a limited number of people and you have to be the age and race they are looking for at the time.

    I think NOT all. As far as I know, "Survey Monkey" is the most used Survey Service that most internet marketers and business owners are using.

    So I think, Survey Monkey is a legitimate survey website. Why not try it and see it for yourself. Just let us know what you've experienced inside.

    I've managed to make quite a bit of extra money filling out surveys and testing out new products. Some of my favorite products have been delicious muffins, some gorgeous shampoo but there are also mundane things like washing powder and conditioner. If you want to sign up for some drop me an email and I'll forward you some referral links :-)

    No, they are not all scams, but there are some scams out there. As I explain on my website, legitimate survey sites are free to join and they do pay. The ones that ask you for a signup fee or to pay any money to get information on survey sites are the scams. You don't have to pay any money for information or to sign up and get paid to take surveys.

    Never pay money to access a survey site. They should pay you for the time filling out a survey.
    Amazon Mturk has paid surveys, along with other paid tasks. There are paid focus groups, everywhere from colleges to political groups to medical research firms.
