Five Reasons I Love Answering Surveys On Paid Viewpoint

by · 54 comments

in Paid Surveys

answering-survey-questionsPaid Viewpoint is a new survey site created by the people behind Instant Cash Sweepstakes. It’s not like any other survey site I’ve ever used, and this is really a good thing. Here’s a quick rundown of all the reasons I actually do enjoy answering surveys there:

  • The surveys are short.
    I don’t think I have ever spent more than 2 minutes answering questions on Paid Viewpoints.
  • The surveys pay you in cash.
    No sign of redeemable points here! They even give you 10 cents just for filling out demographic questions just about every day.
  • You can see your money build up as you answer survey questions.
    When you’re taking surveys (not the demographic questions), you can see your account balance increase with each set of questions answered. This motivates you more to actually finish the survey
  • You don’t spend five to ten minutes trying to qualify for a survey only to get kicked out with no reward.
    This just doesn’t happen here.
  • And finally, they pay you in Paypal and the cash out threshold is just $15.
    Paypal is by far my favorite way to get paid, and $15 is a pretty low threshold considering that many other survey sites won’t even pay you anything until you have $30 to $50. When that is the case, many people give up before they ever reach payout.

I know that answering surveys for cash is just extra money and not something you can expect to ever be super profitable with, but I don’t mind occasionally answering questions for Paid Viewpoint from time to time. In fact, I actually get excited to see an invite from them in my email.

So far, I have mostly been getting invitations to fill out demographic info, but this does not take long and they give me 10 cents every time I do it. I am hoping that in the future I’ll begin to get more invites for actual surveys which take an equally small amount of time to do for this site and pay a good bit more. One thing I should address is that when you sign up, they DO ask for your mobile phone number. This is so they can verify your account and ensure that you don’t create multiple accounts as this is not allowed. However, I have not received any texts/calls from them apart from the initial verification process and I have been a member here for a little over a month. But if you are not comfortable giving this info out, then by all means you shouldn’t.

You can go here to sign up, or you can do a few of these folks a favor who have gone to the trouble to comment and leave their referral links below and sign up under them!And then feel free to comment yourself and leave your referral link if you want after you have signed up. If you would prefer, you can of course just sign up directly at with no referrer.

Update 1-12-2012: I have now been paid two times by Paid Viewpoint, and both times I requested cash-out, they paid me the same day!

I use Paid Viewpoint and so far I am LOVING it. I am getting at least 1 survey a day and should be able to cash out soon. I love seeing the balance increase and I LOVE how fast the surveys are. Just wanted to say that you can sign up using a land line if you don’t want to give out your cell. That is what I did. Here is my referral link if anyone wants to sign up.


2 Lauren October 18, 2011 at 10:13 am

I really like Paid Viewpoints.You can make more without referrals than on ICS. I have been a member for about 2 months, and i have almost $10. Thats not bad! its super easy extra money! Here is my referral link if anyone is interested:


3 denise October 18, 2011 at 1:23 pm

I always get a lot of product tests too. Almost always they ask me if I would be interested in testing the product and I receive it within a few days.


4 Anna October 19, 2011 at 7:18 am

That’s neat! I never got a product test from them. Something else to look forward to from them!


5 Gidget October 19, 2011 at 11:52 am

I just signed up, I do lots of surveys, but none have paid me for registering. Looking forward to checking this out further. Made $1.10 just for registering. Could use some referrals, too! Thanks

I have tried paid surveys before though not this particular site. With all of the other sites, you are required to sign up for a bunch of stuff to take the survey. Things that cost you money monthly. Is this the way that paid view point works? If so, then not worth it to me. If not, I am interested.



7 Anna October 19, 2011 at 2:34 pm

No, you don’t have to sign up for anything at all. I have never been asked to. I get email invitations about once a day to visit their site and answer little questions. And after I’m done, the money goes into my account. I have never been asked to do anything other than just answer questions.


8 Gidget October 19, 2011 at 4:14 pm

You should never take a survey that makes you do sign ups. There are many legit surveys out there


9 Anna October 20, 2011 at 8:46 am

Agreed Gidget. Some of the Get Paid To sites have surveys that continually ask you to sign up for things, but I don’t think it’s a requirement that you must in order to get your money. I mostly avoid those though and stick to the ones like these that pay you for nothing more than your opinion.


10 Nealia October 24, 2011 at 6:55 pm

when they ask you to refer to a person does the person have to make an account in order for you to get the money


11 Anna October 24, 2011 at 7:07 pm

The person has to create an account and also finish six surveys before you get any money. After they’ve done all that, you’ll get $1 for referring them to Paid Viewpoint.


12 Tesa October 24, 2011 at 11:31 pm

Thanks for sharing this! I signed up quickly and completed my first survey in just a few minutes.


13 Lindsay October 26, 2011 at 3:11 am

What is the activation bonus code? How do I get one?


14 Lindsay October 26, 2011 at 3:39 am

I just joined (Literally 5 minutes ago) and already have $1.45… this is how I got it:
-$1.10 for filling out all the registration questions (including registering my phone number-that was only $.10 though and I don’t know if it is required or not)
-$.25 for a bonus code (which I will give at the end of the post)
-$.10 for my first demographical questionaire
I would really appreciate it if you guys would register though my link considering I’m basically giving you $.25! That’s all I’m asking (lol) My link is:


15 Lindsay October 27, 2011 at 12:40 am

Sorry! The bonus code is “itriedthat”


16 Lindsay October 26, 2011 at 3:40 am

It won’t let me post another comment?


17 Lindsay October 26, 2011 at 3:41 am

OOPS! SORRY! You can delete all those doubles if you want! It wasn’t showing my comments so I freaked out a little bit! I’m NOT trying to SPAM! :(


18 Anna October 26, 2011 at 6:14 am

No problem! I cleaned out the other ones and left one.


19 Gidget October 27, 2011 at 12:12 am

how did you get the bonus code?


20 Lindsay October 27, 2011 at 1:06 am

I posted it up there ^^^

I actually just googled it and I found it on some other blog site! lol

Enjoy! :)


21 Victoria - Ozarks Crescent Mural October 30, 2011 at 12:27 am

Thanks for the referral, OP. I just signed up and I love the interface. I’ve never been much of a fan of survey sites because they are so bland and downright boring and tend to not offer much in compensation in exchange for the tediousness. I’m hoping for the best with this one. So far so good. Since I used your referral link, I hope you don’t mind if I do some referring of my own, but for a different site – Swagbucks – I love all of my free gifts with free shipping and due to the nature of my WAH job, all the $5 Amazon gift cards I’ve racked up. It’s a great site and you likely already know about it.


22 Anna October 30, 2011 at 7:02 am

That’s totally fine Victoria. I don’t mind reader referral links at all :) Swagbucks is another one that I use a lot. I’ve been able to get at least 1 to 2 $5 Amazon codes per month, actually more than that if I use their site every time for searching the web.


23 D'Avia November 7, 2011 at 10:48 pm

Thanks, I will try it out


24 Allison December 12, 2011 at 2:55 pm

I just started and it is so easy! I have already made $1.46 in about 2 minutes. I would appreciate it if you guys would use me as a reference. My link is: Thanks everyone!


25 Janet December 12, 2011 at 8:18 pm

It’s the middle of December – Happy Holidays to everyone! Oh yeah, my link is:


26 Chiyu January 12, 2012 at 7:04 am

Thanks for this info! I just signed up, like 5 minutes ago and I now have $1.80 just by filing my information and answering a few questions! This is great! My referral link is:

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone would join under me! :D


27 Sergeantrom March 21, 2012 at 9:57 am

This is the only survey site I am using from now on!!! I get actual surveys once per week unfortunately by the time I logon, they are gone. Geeze I think they must send the notices at midnight :)

Like the review stated, shortest survey site ever. I seem to get the same 10 questions every single day, just worded a different way. This site is a no brainer. Now all I need are referrals.


28 venessa March 28, 2012 at 7:34 pm

31 Kayla August 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm

I am trying this one out and I like it so far. please use my referral link.


32 Serrano November 5, 2012 at 12:18 pm

I have been on paidviewpoint for about 2 months and my trait score is 4300, i only get 3cents every day and this is getting me fustrated..3cents only for each trait survey no paid survey at all..what i’m i doing wrong????


33 Anna November 5, 2012 at 1:03 pm

I am not sure Serrano. I do get a bunch of those traits surveys but I also get an occasional “real” survey. Maybe you should check your profile over and make sure all your demographic info is up to date? Or maybe they just don’t have a lot of surveys right now?


34 Serrano November 6, 2012 at 11:26 am

Is it because i’m in the caribbean? can you send me your personal email address? its very stressful trying to find a legitimate online job….help…


35 Anna November 6, 2012 at 7:00 pm

I’m not sure, Serrano. You can contact me above with the “Contact” button if you need some more suggestions.


36 Serrano November 7, 2012 at 11:49 am

One more thing, my referal gets 10cent for every trait survey, and i get 3 cents how is that possible? is it because i didnt get a bonus code? does paidviewpoint have an admin i can contact?

37 Ceed3 February 11, 2013 at 3:27 am

I’ve been on this site for about 2 weeks and quickly found out this survey site is unique in it’s structure. The money comes slow, but extremely easy to earn. It’s already in MY top five survey sites without me even cashing out yet. Anyone with simple business insight can see the earning potential. Not to mention the referral program….Sign up w/ this one!! Take this shortcut:


38 Fabio March 20, 2013 at 10:25 pm

In paidviewpoint wins is usually 3 cents per survey, but the person responds and its TraitScore vai increasing and when you get to 9000 the earnings increase. Here is a survey receives per day + or – and not tired because nothing is only 10 questions geralmente.Em gives 30/2 to answer the 10 questions.
Try to be as much the right answers, for example: they ask you today, how old are you? you answer 18 if tomorrow or in a few days they ask you the same thing, you have to give the same answer.
They use questions to see how well ex verdadeiro.Inscreva up for free:

I just started using this site and like it so far. I heard about them because I am already a member at instant cash sweepstakes and they are owned by the same people. I already like them, so I thought this one seemed like a good option too!

43 Chris July 16, 2013 at 3:10 am
