Has anyone found an online survey taking site that ACTUALLY pays money for the surveys you take?

I joined a few and the only surveys I get are sweepstakes entries that I doubt are legit. I want to take the surveys that pay out cash. Has anyone found those?

Has anyone found an online survey taking site that ACTUALLY pays money for the surveys you take?
I have earned arond $500 from Pinecone Research in the last 4 years ($5 per survey). They are very prompt in sending the checks. No point system, no raffles - just a $5 each and every survey

The rule, as always, is to stay away from those that ask you to pay before you can get these surveys.

Legitimate market survey companies such as Pinecone Research recruit members based on demographic characteristics -- e.g. mothers of babies 0-12 years old -- and will send surveys of products and services targeting this demographic group. Pinecone Research, however, pays only $5 per survey -- you're definitely not going to be rich with that. They can give you anywhere from 1-5 at most surveys in a month.

Other companies simply ask you to answer as many research as possible, and you don't earn anything just the chance to win at a raffle (which I find lame).

The article "Earning Money from Surveys" provide a short list of legitimate market research firms and contains explanations of what to look for when joining surveys (and weeding out the fraudulent ones)

Reply:No, I've done the same thing. Scams
Reply:I've done some that pay you in points and they you turn in the points for prizes and cash (they are legit as I've received my goodies). There's also a survey company that does mail and internet surveys and I usually get between $1 and $5 for the mail surveys.

I haven't found any that pay a large amount of money.
Reply:I am joined a survey panel called Global Test Market. Go to The way it works is you take surveys and receive between 5-100 points. Once you accumulate 1,000 points, they send you a $50.00 check. I just received my first one this week.
Reply:Hi M,

I´ve tried alot of different ways to make money online over the past "painful" 2 years and theres alot of crap out there that just doesn´t work, it´s amazing how they can keep getting awy with it! Now after soooo many disappointments I´m using Data Entry Pro and it´s now making me money (finally!) online.

Anyway, basically you sign up with them and then once your logged in you just fill in as many forms as you like in their members section and you get paid for each one. I get checks from them every 2 weeks each averaging around $250-$350. You could make more but I just use the site as an extra income stream aswell as my full time job so I only work on it for around an hour each night.

You do have to be prepared to spend a little money though if you want to do anything online like this but it´s already been worth it for me.

Here`s the link you can get them at anyway -%26gt;

Hope this helps!
