Do taking online surveys for cash really work?
I just signed up at topdollarsurveys.com and I have signed up with every survey thing and no results, I think I was ripped off...7 years ago - 8 answers
There are a LOT of survey sites that are merely scams.
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).

I have found several legitimate work at home sites so far, and one of them made me $494+ in October, $700+ in November, and $838.57 in December. They are free to join.
Please click my screen name or avatar for more information and a link for proof of payment and lots of specific details.
I made some nice money at first, but once I found out these sites were legitimate, I started adding referrals and the money got a lot better. For every person you refer, you get 20% of what they earn on 2 of these sites. And for every person that one of your referrals refer, you get 10% on one site and 5% on the other. In time--this could be a great source of income--making money while other people are in a sense, working for you.
If you get 5 referrals who earn $20 a month, that is an extra $20 in your pocket. If you get 100 referrals earning $20 a month, that is an extra $400 you'll earn every month!!!
And by the way--never join a work at home program that wants you to pay up front. If they were making that much money, they wouldn't need to charge you.
Note: There are a lot of other sites listed too as well as the payout for each.
What do you think?
Memorize this quote: "Nothing is for free."
Stay away fro survey cash it is a night mare. Most of the surveys require you to give your own personal information and sign up for trial offers to get paid. Many of them if you dont keep up with all the cancellations you will get charged for all these free/and trial offers. What good was a $20 payment if you just got charges $65 that you can cancel but it becomes a mess and you have more chance of loosing money than making any. If you have a credit card and willing to deal with all the email spam that will take over your box, and can keep good records on what you need to cancel by when. You might actually make some money. You will work for it and that is the price you will have to pay. Good luck! It killed me....by a2z_4me - 7 years ago
It's definitely possible to make some money through the internet.
There are many resources out there but I think this blog has a very good collection of ways to make money online.
Came across it some time ago and I'm still reading it daily.
Hope this helped.
Survey sites you have to pay for usually at best just refer you to other sites which you could join for free. Sites like these will quote the highest payed surveys (this one says "Make up to $75 per survey) and while those surveys may exist they are very rare (and usually if a company is paying that much they want a very specific demographic--which you might not be in). There was an article in a parenting magazine about this (wish I could remember which one) where the author signed up with one of these sites--in a year she barely made back what she paid.
There are legitimate FREE sites out there (never pay to take surveys). I've listed some 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 site:
I list how they pay you, what I like and dislike about them, whether they have an affiliate or referral program, etc. (And yes, if I say they have an affiliate program, I'm part of it, and make a commission when someone signs up through that link...I like to be up front about that).
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.
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
