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!!

Everyday companies pay big bucks to people like you just to know what you're thinking. They're desperate to understand how you think and shop and why you buy certain products. This helps them improve their products. So they pay YOU good money for your opinion. They Need You! Right now, I have hundreds of market research firms looking for survey takers. If you're a housewife, stay-at-home mom, student, retired, working full-time, or just looking to make some extra cash, this is your ticket to fun, easy money!
Post-recession, a lot of workers started looking for ways to earn extra cash. While most side gigs won’t supplant the steady cashflow of a regular job, they can pad a paycheck that hasn’t seen a significant boost in a few years. Paid surveys are often mentioned as one way to earn a few extra dollars fast. But are paid surveys a legitimate way to make money – or are they scams? The answer is that it depends on the survey and the company you are taking them for.
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.
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.

You will also get the best results if you sign up at several of the best paid surveys sites. The truth is the best survey sites that paid the most usually only offer the best paying surveys once or twice a month. As a result, if you want more surveys you have to sign up for more sites. You should also combine your survey sites with similar rewards sites. There are some survey sites that also give you points for playing games, signing up for offers, answering polls, and even watching ads. In some cases, you can even earn points for performing regular online searches.
Some pay with points that are redeemable for cash or goods and typically you must rack up a bunch to redeem them for anything of significance. Others may give you a gift card, discount, or another token of appreciation for participating. Many others pay nothing or only offer sweepstakes entries for completing screening surveys to determine your eligibility for other, paid surveys. A few don't pay much of anything, unless you recruit others, as in a pyramid scheme.
It’s easy to earn cash for surveys. How much you get paid completely depends on how many paid surveys you attempt and complete. Each online survey has a different payout, with some offering as much as $50. Most will pay less, but also take less time. Expect to earn about 40 to 200 SB points per survey (100 SB = $1), with occasional opportunities with much higher earning potential.

With over 20 million active members, Swagbucks is the premier destination for paid survey takers looking to earn money for giving their opinion online. Swagbucks provides access to tens of thousands of paid survey-taking opportunities every day. With every online survey, you are affecting key decisions from major companies and organizations. More survey opportunities means more chances to make your opinion count - and more earning potential for you! Unlike most other online survey sites, Swagbucks will even give you a bonus when you don’t qualify for a survey, meaning you never miss out on getting paid.
I would be very cautious signing up to any of these survey websites. They acquire tons of your personal information, then after completing the extensive questionnaire you don’t qualify. Or if you had qualified you cannot sign into the website that you just signed up for “Login failed”. Pinecone Research is one of them! This is not a good recommendation.
