What Is It?

Make money by filling out surveys online.

Short Review:

It sounds like a nice idea, but it’s a lot more work than they make it sound.

Before You Buy:

After wading through the typical marketing BS, upsells, and crap, there’s a decent list of places where you can find surveys to fill out. I signed up for 4 of them to test it out and see if I could make money. Up until this point, the product seems pretty legit. Watch the video below for details on what happened.

What I Liked:

The members area was pretty well designed, and looked like a legit place where you could make some money. If I had actually made some money filling out surveys, it would be very convenient to have a list like this.

What I Didn’t Like:

There was a BS upsell trying to get you to build a website, and they said that a website would normally cost you $2000. Yeah, right! It costs $10 for a domain (per year), and about $5 per month for hosting. That was the first red flag.

Then there was a bunch of other promotional crap trying to say you could make money writing articles and books. Wait, what? I thought this was about filling out surveys. They go on and on about things like affiliate marketing, twitter, blogger, eBay, and Google, but again, we just signed up for the Get Cash For Surveys program, not the make money in a kagillion ways‘ program.

The Main Problems:

From the survey sites I signed up for, I could see a few running themes. These sites do not pay “cash”. They reward you with points, and those points can be redeemed for vouchers. Not all allow for cash withdraws. In fact, some don’t even give you a choice of vouchers.

Some give you NOTHING, and only enter you for a chance to win various products.

Even those that allow you to withdraw to your Paypal account place an arbitrary value on the money. You make ‘points’ by filling out a survey, and exchange points for discount cards or money via Paypal. One site required 1100 points for $100. I filled out a short survey, totally at random, as fast as I could and received 10 whole points.

At that speed, for that amount of points, if I worked 100% of every hour, ONLY filling out surveys, I would make about $5 per hour. The problem with that, besides being minimum wage, is that you cannot fill out that many surveys. You must ‘browse’, wait for new surveys to be delivered, and you may be required to do other tasks before you start working (like sign up for something).

For example, the second survey site I tried was a dead link. Time wasted.

The third website I visited had me filling out forms I thought was a survey, but it turns out they were promotional offers for another website. After finally finding the survey section of the site, I was unable to start the survey until I ‘signed up’ for another offer from a different website.

And on the fourth website (trying to fulfill my obligation to start working on the third one), I discovered that they don’t pay you in anything but ‘entries’ into sweepstakes.

Who Is This Product For:

Someone with a lot of time.

      It sure looks like a scam. The photo of her is NOT real – it’s a stockphoto. She doesn’t seem to have a website anywhere to be found in the SERPs, and it seems many of the “reviews” have been taken down. It’s an old product, and very likely a scam. Stay away!

    Hi Nathaniell..
    I’m glad I found ur web and review bout this survey site. They are now entering my country, Indonesia. I was interested, and it sounds too good to be true. But I tried to search for reviews before connecting my Paypal. There are lots of good and touching reviews out there but it doesn’t seem real. Then I found ur article and believe it because u told us how their site works. That’s what they commonly do, as I’ve tried several of it before. I just thought that because it’s a paying site it would provide us better options. It’s good to read ur honest review here. Thanks!

    • Nathaniell says

      I’m glad to help out. Uh, I even paid for this thing twice because they promote it under different names! You certainly will have a lot more success with affiliate marketing. It takes longer to set up, but the payments are bigger, and the work you do will be so much more rewarding!

      BTW, I checked out your site – are those dresses you make or are you doing advertising for other people in your area?

  7. Thomas says

    This review was very helpful. I am currently trying to make money with multiple online companies but I am having a very hard time finding REAL online companies. So far, the only company that I have made any money with is [removed]

    Does anyone else know any other real online companies? If so please post! Thank you!

    • Nathaniell says

      I know that company and I do not recommend anyone get involved. Thank you for taking the time to comment, but most of what we discuss here is related to people that are looking for sustainable income through online business. You’ll find with companies like paid surveys and other “tricks” to earn a few bucks here and there, the success never lasts long, and then you have to spend your hard earned money on more “make money products”.

    Hello,
    Thanks so much for your honest review of Cash for Surveys. After reading the facebook review, where they said that they have never seen such a great way to make legit money, I was very excited. How in the world can they make those claims if what you say is true????? Is there a way I can make money online for real?

    • Nathaniell says

      They can make those claims because they say it’s what CAN happen, not what DOES happen most of the time. They also have very hard to find disclaimers that say this is not results most people get. It’s all just clever advertising unfortunately. Plus, they change their website, “owner” and other things on a regular basis, so it’s impossible to find who they are and get them to stop. Plus, most people that are scammed by them wouldn’t know how to report them properly. Heck, even I don’t know how to do it.

      So I just write reviews and show people like you that it’s not as easy as they claim.

      My #1 rated product it linked in this article. But it is not a “survey” thing. You learn how to build a website, write stuff on a blog, and make money from your affiliate marketing. Check it out for free (no credit card needed), and see if it’s something you would like to do.

    Hello, i have a problem regarding of this. i have join as a member of this kind of web site and it cost me for $37 , they say theres a money back guarantee if i’m not satisfied, i’m already not satisfied now actually, could you tell me how to get my money back? Please answer me T^T

    • Nathaniell says

      I would reply to their customer service center. If they do not respond, you can probably dispute the charge with your credit card company, but that’s not a guarantee.

  11. edy yusuf says

    thanks….l really want to make money……….. but.. all scams. thank you so much Bro.

  12. Rezzy says

    Thanks a lot! with all these scams it’s almost impossible to understand what is going on. You helped me a lot.

    • Nathaniell says

      That’s how these places get you to sign up. If you knew what was really happening, most people wouldn’t pay for these products!
