Paid Surveys Online

Has anyone ever tried these online surveys where they pay you?

Is it a scam, or do they actually work?

ive considered sometimes.

If it was in the paper I would consider it much more than internet.

It has to be real. I mean, not just anyone can put something on the internets.

I do them from time to time. But you have to do so many before you accumulate real money that most of the time, they're not worth doing. I mean... 20 min of filling out all these annoying questions for a dollar? I would do it for 5 bucks, but not one dollar. And be careful- some say they'll give out money, but they give out gift certificates for cheezy poofs, and not worth all that much either. So if you do them, just be careful and look at what they say the reward is before you commit yourself to 20- 30 min of mindless questions so you can receive 30 cents.

Oh- and if they pay you cash, they pay you through paypal... so make sure you have a paypal account set up.

I do them for amazon gift certificates. Well worth the time, in my opinion. 30 min for $10 gift certificate. You can buy anything on amazon. And I do mean anthing. Heh.

See, I'd do it for that. I reject categorically the surveys that ask you to complete them for one dollar. That's an insult. 1 dollar for twenty minutes of work is 3 dollars an hour. I wasn't aware I lived in a third world country.

If your under 18 years of age, go to http://www.wrinsiders.com/teen/ and also type in the code P17193756862 where it says if you sign up.

When you take/run out of all their surveys, you will have enough points to get a free 10$ amazon gc for free. And in about 5-7 days probably enough for a 20$ one. They have a ton of other stuff too.

I do the Harris online polls for CD's, but at least half the motivation is just I'm curious what sort of things companies pay for polling companies to learn about and the brief summary they give me after completing the poll. It takes a dozen or so polls to earn a free CD.
