Paid Surveys

Has anyone ever done one of those paid survey websites? I notice these in my email and most recently on a web site I was visiting. They all seem to claim you can make anywhere from $5 to $150 per survey that you do online. It all sounds too good to be true. Then if you look at joining you'll soon find out that there is a fee to join. The 2 or 3 I did look at the fee was $34.95 (which isn't bad if you can make that kind of money taking the surveys).

Has anyone ever done this? Is it actually something you can make $$$ doing?

I have been getting emails just like that too. If someone knows anything about it, PLEASE LET US KNOW IF IT WORKS, IF IT'S REAL, or IF IT'S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE"

Thanx!

After my vacation this summer I think I'll dish ou the $35 and give it a try. I just can't seem to find anyone who can say anything good OR bad about them.

It might be a good test to inform others if it's a scam or if it's good then I'll just keep it all to myself and rake in the bucks Laughing

I think if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

Amen!!

If you're considering doing something like that, you'd better read every single word of the fine print and read the entire site thoroughly. I personally think all of those things are a big time scam and I stay away from anything that I don't know 100% for certain is legit.

Has anyone tried this yet? I looked into this quite a while back but didn't want to get scammed a fee.

I decided not to bother. I've always been real big on the saying: If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.

With that said... I'd still like to find someone who has tried it to get the skinny on it. Very Happy

Survey's

Yes, I got the name of some company's off of this website, and jumped in!

I would suggest that you do the 'yahoo search' for "get paid to drive" and also "get paid to mystery shop" first. What you will find is a very informational piece on which are the scams, and which are recommended.

What I wound up with at first, was a LOT OF BULK MAIL!

You do have to check the bulk mail though, just to make sure that one of the ads that you asked for...aren't in your bulk. Once you ad it to your address book, it no longer comes to your bulk folder.


If you are interested to the point of checking it out, let me know at thesassyone49@yahoo.com and I will "refer" you, AND get a bonus if you should join.

This will get you right to the company, without doing the $34.-$35.00.

I am really enjoying making money. Should you just wander upon one of the sites, and it asks who referred you, just type in thesassyone49@yahoo.com

Some of the companies pay $.01-?? just for reading the email. It is pennies, but it sure does add up!!!

One thing: It is important to make another email address to use just for the surveys, and jobs. That is very important!

Sassy, so you are saying that if you refer me it won't cost me anything to get in. Also what sort of tome has to be put in to make a few bucks? I realize it must vary, but wanted to get an idea.

Thanks

NEVER pay to take surveys there are too many free sites that list legit survey companies for FREE. I recommend yellowsurveys.com, they have the largest free survey database on the internet.

Also if you don't believe they pay here is a check I received from a survey company listed at yellowsurveys.com.
