In most cases, you can redeem your points for merchandise or for gift cards. Understand that redeeming for merchandise isn’t usually the best choice. Many of the items are outdated or of poor quality. You are usually better off redeeming the points you get from filling out paid surveys on gift cards. Check to see if the gift cards offered are to your favourite stores or places that you shop regularly.
Have tried a number of these sites including some of the higher profile ones. WASTED MONTHS AND HOURS OF MY TIME FOR ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!! In my experience, these sites are GARBAGE and a SCAM….and are looking for poor saps to pay useless points to, or a few pennies or a chance to enter a contest. BIG WHOOP. Don’t fall for this. Your time is more valuable and can be put to better use. Volunteer for a good cause in your community if you’re going to work for nothing, instead of letting these slick companies who rake in Gobs of Profits take advantage of you. Don’t be their Fool!!

Ultimately, it is very unlikely that participating in online surveys will provide you with a steady, livable wage. However, if you enjoy participating in online surveys (especially if you like the prizes, coupons, and other more typical non-monetary earnings), be sure to avoid questionable third-party sites. Look for real paid surveys online that don’t require you to invest money.

You shouldn’t notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link.

On the positive side, if they do accept you, they now know who you are. This means they should only send out surveys where you match the demographic. For example, maybe an ad firm representing a product wants to know what magazines and websites women aged 25-45 across Canada read. If you fit that, they might select you from their pool to help represent that demographic.
A few paid survey sites do pay relatively well in cash. However, many sites hype hypothetical, best-case scenarios that can't possibly apply to each and every consumer for each and every hour of participation. In the real world, the likelihood that you'll often earn the higher of the hyped amounts is slim. Most online paid surveys simply don't pay much, and you must be invited to complete them. To be invited, you must fit targeted demographics. That alone limits your earnings right off the bat, as you can't possibly fit every demographic.

“I participated in an in-home product trial study. A coffee machine company sent me one of the coffee makers along with about 200 coffee pods. I received $7 for completing 3 short surveys. Plus, after the study, the company said I could keep the coffee maker. So, I got like 4 mos of coffee for everyone in my household, a free coffee maker and $7!” - David W.
I have tosay that by joining the survey sites that you haveon your list i have madeover 300.00in the last 6 months doing surveys and watching videos so if you have the timetospend doingsurveys you wont makea whole lot of money but you will enjoy the survey opportunititys and every little bit will add up if you join all of these except panda research which is known for sending your money to someone elsed paypal account because it happened to me about 2 years ago andthey took 186.00 from me.

Well, I signed up for Panda research and did a few surveys and all was fine until the other day they had an offer for investing with bitcoin, Just so you know it was listed as a survey. I watched the video which seemed very appealing so I did a google search on bit coin and the person(Steve Banks) that was selling the product, 1) because my malware kept coming up saying fraud and 2) it was too good to be true. Anyway after my search I found out that there was no such thing as bit coin advertising and that the company (Bit Coin Millionaire Club)had scammed people out of thousands of dollars and is listed on the BBB’s website as a scam. I then sent Panda Research an email making them aware of what I found out and advised them that they should not offer it as a survey because it is a scam. Long story short they never responded back and they still have it up on there site. Just be very careful when signing up with Panda Research there is almost always a fee attached to there surveys and even when you do fill them out your money is in pending mode.
It’s often possible to earn as much as the equivalent of $7 or $8 an hour when you sign up with the best survey sites. While that’s not a ton of money, and there are other ways to make more money in an hour, this isn’t bad for something you can do without too much thought while you are sitting at home. If you fill out surveys because you don’t have anything else to do or if you do it while you are watching TV, standing in line at the store, or engaging in some other activity, it can be worth the trouble.
