While there are many legitimate online survey panels in existence, there are lots of scams, too. This post contains tips to help you tell the difference between a scammy survey panel and a quality one you can feel comfortable registering with. The first rule of registering with any survey panel is to never, ever, pay to sign up. . . . Read More
I like taking paid surveys, I always have. I even wrote an entire eBook about doing it. This has never been a hobby that has paid the bills for me, but I love the little incentives and it’s really easy to do. I admit I don’t do it as religiously as I used to, but there are some panels that I’ve been part of for a long time that I will still take the occasional survey for. If you take surveys for extra cash, then you know that nothing stays the same in the world of . . . Read More
I don’t do survey panel reviews very regularly on this blog, but YourWord is a newer one that I keep reading some positive things about. While this panel does not have cash as an option for redemption, they do have Amazon gift codes and gift codes for other popular retailers. The holidays will be here before you know it, so now is certainly a good time to start saving up the Amazon codes we get from YourWord and other similar . . . Read More
One survey panel that I keep running across is Springboard America. While I am a member of numerous paid survey panels, this is one that I’ve never actually tried out. So I took it upon myself to register there today, do some research on how it works, and share my findings with you.
Is this a reputable panel? Yes. The company behind the panel is Vision Critical. They are a major global research firm with some pretty big-name clients like Jet Blue, CBS . . . Read More
It’s been a very long time since I’ve written an entire post about a survey panel on this blog. Today’s post is about Tellwut. I’m choosing to write about this one in particular primarily because it’s gotten a lot of extremely good feedback from users. And also, it’s a little different from your typical market research panel. If you enjoy taking surveys/polls for extra cash here and there, this might be a site you’d want to be a part of. . . .

Update – This company has yet to send me any usability tests. It’s all been just surveys, so I renamed the article. Also, a reader let me know that he has completed 10 and 15 minute surveys for this company only to get booted out with no pay. This has not been my experience — my account has been credited for the surveys I’ve completed so far, but I just wanted to let you all know that it happened to someone else. I am re-categorizing this company as a survey panel. Their website no longer even says anything about sending out $12 usability tests. . . . Read More
Darwin’s Data is not your typical survey panel. I am really excited to share this one with you because they offer a nice incentive just for signing up plus they pay out pretty generously for every survey you take. I have done my research and it looks like they are definitely paying. Unlike many survey panels you may be familiar with, the questions aren’t about products you use. Darwin’s Data will ask you primarily about your opinions on various legal disputes. . . . Read More
Opinion Place is a paid survey panel I have mentioned in passing but never done a full overview on. If you like survey panels, this is a good one that does allow you to get paid in Paypal cash or Amazon gift codes for your time spent answering questions. No points!
Below you can see the pros and cons to taking surveys for Opinion Place:
I did a lot of research over the weekend to find out what survey panels still pay in cash because, as you may know, most of them now use these confusing points systems rather than just telling us how much we’re going to earn per survey. I came up with a list of… . . . Read More
I’ve been using Paid Viewpoint for a while now. If you’re not familiar, this is a paid survey site that’s a little different. They actually have a lot going for them because when you participate, you’re free of a lot of the problems you encounter with traditional survey sites (long surveys, slow to pay, etc.) While I still recommend… . . .
