I am a former employee of one of CashCrate's competitors.
While these sites generally DO pay out (so they're legit in the legal sense) they are a huge waste of your time. They essentially pay out very little in exchange for you to give your information to companies. And also not every offer approves.
They also aren't legit in the way that these companies that you sell your information to, often just give it away to others even where you explicitly tell them not to.
If you're in a bind and need cash, I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend using fake information even though it's against TOS. Don't give information of real people, just use an email address you don't give a CRAP about.
If you give up your phone number, you will hear gentle, soft sobs from your spouse as he/she tries to fall asleep after 15 straight hours of the phone ringing off the hook.
DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT do any download offers. We used to get so many complaints from users who would get spyware and viruses from these types of offers.
Plus, you're essentially working for less than minimum wage.
I'm not saying this as a disgruntled worker who was fired. I actually quit. For ethical reasons.
If you read between the lines of what admins say, they're telling you to break certain parts of the TOS. It's a don't ask, don't tell type of thing. They make more if you're able to complete more offers (and if you break TOS, you can do that.)
The only rule that you cannot violate is the IP address rule. These sites have to prove to their affiliates that their users don't have multiple accounts from the same IP. However, this is pretty much the only thing they have to prove. In order to be a part of a particular affiliate company, these sites must set forth extremely tough rules in their TOS, but they don't enforce most of them unless you say outright that you violate them and they actually condone a number of violations (again, don't ask, don't tell.)
One opinion from Yahoo: "It's a very limited survey opportunity which relies heavily on not being tricked into signing up for so-called free offerings, i.e., magazine subscriptions and the like because it's very easy to be charged for these subscriptions when you really do not want to accept their offers--only the payment for answering their surveys. Should your recordkeeping not be sufficient, you will be bombarded with endless so-called freebie offerings. And there's the added bonus if you are able to bring in other new candidates to this program. So, if you do not want to keep strict track of such offerings and do not have others to recommend, then the overall pay per hour for all your survey taking may prove to be of little value for all your efforts."
i've tried it for two months and it works fine, i dont have to give my real details i just faked the details for starters but its not necessary anymore and i get a check every month. i didn't google it, i was told about it by a friend
I find most of those things are not worth the time it takes.

Do people still buy Magazine subscriptions? If they do what ones?Magazine subscriptions are cheaper and cheaper and the only reason I see for selling them for 78% off is to ensure they have some kind of income at all. So do people still buy magazines? What ones? Why?
