Are there really any good paid survey sites online?

    I have tried some paid online survey sites, but find that they don't pay well.

    I'm not looking to make $50 a survey. But I'm also not willing to spend an hour taking a survey for 50 cents either.

    Are there any sites hubbers would recommend.

      I've personally never found any decent ones. So I'll give you some advice that I've seen given by people who "claim" it works. Go to page 10 of Google. That's where they hide.

      I wrote a Hub called Great Survey Websites are Fun and Profitable.  If you read that Hub, you will find the sites that I have found to be pretty good.  But you can check them out for yourself.   As it says in the Hub, I have averaged $100/month the last three years.  Some of them reward you with actual money and some with points to be redeemed for merchandise or gift certificates.  I think your demographics and geographical area determine how many surveys you receive and how many you qualify for.  Hope this is useful.  My biggest criticism is that some of them make you wait a long time to receive the rewards once you qualify and request payment.

      I just wanted to say that getting money from the internet and how much revenue through paid surveys or click view and the like will not get an adequate income. Better to learn internet marketing seriously and do not expect instant income. that's it

      e-rewards pays from 5-30 dollars per survey, they are terribly targeted though.  I believe they are by invitation only. I'm a member and make maybe 200 a year because I only qualify for a few surveys a year.

      Cruise their site and see if you can contact them for an invite, I'm not promising anything though.

      I really can't remember how I became a member since it was years ago.

      Valued Opinions seems to work quite well... I did give it a try but it's not really my thing

      Good Luck

      I have tried many survey sites but most of them pay horribly. Waiting to see if anyone gives out any interesting answers here. I doubt if there are any good survey sites out there that do pay well.

      Global Test Market is one that has come through for me. I've had some luck with others but don't really bother with them much anymore because of the lack of reward. It's not worth the time and effort in general. The payment options may not have been to my liking either.

      When I first started online I was told this was the way to go.  I tried it solidly for a full three months. All I got was a million junk emails and a few cents in change for my troubles.  I also got about 20 different toolbars and a whole lot of crap on my PC.  I cleared all of them out and went on to making money with Adsense from a few blogs....a much better idea

      I gave up on surveys because I was sick of spending ten minutes or longer answering questions only to be told I did not qualify for the actual survey.

      I believe many survey sites do this. It lets them collect a lot of data without having to pay for it. It is tantamount to a scam.

        I started, when I was unemployed that is, looking fro surveys for cash. I very quickly got the gist of the scam, they invite you in by telling you that you can earn cash, when you delve a  little deeper it's for rewards for a pile of that S***, that you wouldn't even buy with the cash even if they paid you. A complete rip off.

      I have no recieved the actual check but toluna seems legit. I am also a member of sure=veyhead and while it takes a while to build up cash the surveys are generally short and easy to qualify for. Inbox Dollars is cool but takes forever to get to the redemption limit.

      I tried doing online surveys for several months. I can tell you this. It's a lot of work! Most survey sites will only send you 3 or 4 surveys per month and then you may only "qualify" for 1 or 2 of them. So, to be able to make any substantial income ($20 to $30 per day) you have to join dozens of survey sites. The most I ever managed to earn in one day was about $22.00 and that was only because I let the surveys build up in my account for a week and did them all at once (took about 8 hours). So, despite what the pitch-men try to tell you, you can't earn a replacement income from online surveys. The best you can do is earn enough to go out and eat a couple times a month.

      I found them to be you go through page after page after page of questions, then more pages with product offers, and then after spending an hour of what you thought was the survey was nothing but a way for them to get your info so your email can be filled with product offers, and then told you DON'T QUALIFY!  A wast of time.
