Can you actually make money by filling out surveys online?

How do you get paid if these are cash online surveys? I am not comfortable giving my bank info or CC info online. Please advise since i am on disability i want to work from home for sometime.

Can you actually make money by filling out surveys online?

its legit, free, and all you do is take a bunch of surveys or sign up for free trials...they send you a monthly check, you just have to reach at least $20 before they send it...but that's easy, i made that in like 2 days after taking alot of surveys...and its actually free...ive tried alot of sites that say they are free but they charge you a fee or some crap to sign up. good luck!

you dont have to give your CC or bank info ! there are some trial offers that you can sign up for and you get alot of money just for signing up , if you do decide to take advantage of those you can just get a prepaid visa or can get them almost anywhere (i've got some from the bank) and i think you can get them as low as $5.00. its just like a giftcard, none of your info is with it. then you just cancel the trial offer after its approved.

Reply:Yes, you can.That's what i'm doing. I got an online tutorial and top 10 sites, where you can make a lot. I made 87$ this weekend, and most of their offers doesn't require CC.

Here's link to tutorial and links(sites)
Reply:Im on a few survey sites, and NO, none of them want any CC info from me. I have gotten a few checks from them in the mail, and thats pretty cool. I have only been doing it for about 2 months, and so far I have gotten about $75 from them.

I would suggest and then get more sites. has also payed well for me.
Reply:Yeah, you can make a little money from surveys (usually $5 or less per survey). I've listed most of the sites I have taken surveys through and actually been paid (or received other rewards like gift cards or CD'S) on the following webpage:

I list how they pay you (pay-pal, check, or points for rewards are the three ways--none ask for your credit card info.) and what I like and dislike about them.

As you're searching, here are some tips to avoid scams. Don't sign up for any survey site which asks you to pay to access the surveys. Also watch for language like "get paid for taking surveys AND SIGNING UP FOR OFFERS" if you don't want to have to sign up for stuff with other companies to get paid.

Always carefully read their terms of service and privacy policy. If in their privacy policy they say they only use aggregated info, this is GOOD SIGN they are legit. Aggregated info information that is grouped together so it can't be connected with anyones personal identification like name, e-mail, phone or address. That's what survey sites SHOULD collect. Avoid sites that say they give, rent, or sell any personal information (info that is not aggregated) to third parties (unless you really don't mind getting junk mail, telemarketing calls, and spam).

Also, never sign up for a survey through an unsolicited e-mail--since these might not even be from the site they claim to be, but could be a phishing scheme to get your information and mis-use it.

Here are two other sites which are very helpful

Reply:Don't be fooled by over exaggerated claims of making hundreds of dollars by simply completing online surveys. Usually marketing companies will either pay a small cash stipend of no more than $1 - $5 dollars, offer fun rewards or enter your name into a monthly pool where you could win a moderate sum of money (which no one ever hears about anyone receiving the winnings...), however a person should NEVER pay for receiving this information and the marketing companies will be the first to tell you this is so. To help you understand the concept behind paid surveys even further, I have included an excerpt from an article I found on line, which should help to answer your question satisfactorily.


The purpose of surveys is simply to make products better so more consumers buy them. The surveying companies get paid a certain amount for each survey they return to whomever employed them. And they use a variety of incentives to get people to spend 20 minutes of their time filling out the surveys: cash, free products, gift certificates, frequent flier miles, and a whole bunch of others. Besides that, most of the surveys you'll signup for will not pay you any money but they will waste your time.

When you do sign up for all those surveys your name and email address will be sold or traded to a slew of other companies who are going to slam your inbox with tons of unrelated offers soliciting you to spend money you obviously didn't have in the first place. And, the web sites who sell "paid" surveys services are using false advertising to entice unsuspecting people to part with $35 (or so) and deliver little in return. The bottom line is unless you enjoy collecting $5 gift certificates or samples of products in the mail, you are simply wasting your time and your money if you are paying to receive a list of surveys.

Reply:Brenda, I have been doing surveys for Global Test Market for a couple of years. While I couldn't make a living at it, I have earned several hundred dollars filling out surveys for them. The more profiles you fill out, the more surveys you get, the more points you earn. 1000 points = $50, sent via check to your home address. Just got one yesterday!
