My Review of MySurvey

MySurvey is one of the oldest and most reliable survey companies out there.  They used to collect opinions using regular snail mail, then the telephone, and starting in 2001 they began offering surveys via their website.

MySurvey is a good paying survey panel and usually sends at least 2-3 survey invites per week.  It should be part of everyone's collection of paid survey panels.  Cash outs are easy and only require you to build up $10 worth of points.  Also, most of the surveys are quite short, so you don't get burnt out on taking long surveys.

    Old faithful, going strong

    MySurvey has been around forever. I love taking their surveys, but just wish they had more. They have been in business for so long for a reason. This is one where you have to keep taking surveys and checking in. Once they know you are committed, you will get more surveys.

    I have been with them for over 3 years, have cashed out a lot! Very quick payment through PayPal! If you don't qualify for a survey you are informed very quickly! I have tried several products for them! Compensation is Great!

    Lost survey

    I have liked doing surveys on Mysurvey but lately have had trouble. At the end of the survey, I have been getting error signals. So I have been spending time doing surveys only to get an error and not receive the points. Dissapointed!

    One of the better ones

    I have been part of this panel for three months. At first I got very few survey invitations. Then the more I qualified for and took, the more I was offered. Some days I now get offered three of them. The vast majority of their surveys are their own, not from a partner. Their surveys tend to be much better designed than other companies. Unlike many survey companies, there are not too many questions with too many answers required on too many products or redundancy. The rewards translate out to being from fifty cents to $1.25. There are probably more ways to redeem rewards than any other company including PayPal, Amazon.com, 63 other gift cards, and various merchandise. My only two complaints are that it can take about a month to get the reward after you have cashed in and if you are screened out you get a sweepstakes draw.

    I've been a member of MySurvey for 4 years and have consistently earned at least $10 every month. I've completed product tests, online surveys, smartphone surveys, online usage diaries, and even mailed them copies of some of my bills. I usually get 8 to 10 survey invitations per week. The good news is that I qualify for a much higher percentage of these surveys than I do at some of my other favorite survey panels. There are many things that I appreciate about their website. My available surveys, credit balance, available rewards, and a history of my completed surveys are easy to find. I've had good success with their customer service when I have encountered problems; which thankfully aren't many. Points are usually awarded immediately upon completetion of each survey. I have noticed that there are more survey opportunities from other survey sites lately. They clearly tell you that some of these surveys will take a few weeks to credit to your account. I'm ok with this because they have to be paid to pay me. I usually cash out as soon as I get at least 1100 points for $10 with PayPal. It usually takes 10-14 days to receive credit. Many of the surveys are for 30 to 50 points for 10 to 20 minutes of effort. I get a few surveys for 150 to 300 points every month that take 30 to 45 minutes to complete. The surveys are usually very well written and have a very professional feel and tone. I really like MySuvey because I always know what to expect. This is definitely a steady and reliable survey site.

    Personally, I think it's horrible. It took me a year to reach $10 worth of points. I estimate the time I spent and the electricity I used to take the surveys is equal to or greater than the $10 I earned. No profit at all. If you like to waste a lot of time or have plenty of time to blow, this is your call.

Just build your points in like a week plus and its adds up fast in a twinkle of an eye. I had to be patience to understand that this was a different and better survey to others that I have tried bcos it took time to get paid after they must have used up like half an hr of your time and not get rewarded fast but in 8weeks.

    I just finished a survey for this company that took well over an hour, was 100+ pages, most requiring many answers. My reward was 600 points, less than $5! Shame on me as I started the survey even though I was given no notice of the reward or time commitment required before I started (a clever and effective tack for them!) Their sweepstakes entries have resulted in zero prizes, and I have done surveys for this company for over 20 years, starting by mail. I am done with My Survey, and recommend you don’t waste your time.

    So far for me after doing a few surveys, it seems to be absolutely not worth it. All have been 50 points so far, one was "up to 20 minutes to complete" took about 32 minutes. Absolutely not worth it, whats that €.21 for 30 minutes of your time. I'll give it another couple of weeks before i give up on it, but I'm not seeing how people are happy with it

    Highly recommended! Trust me I've used many survey sites and they were not good enough, you have to spend so much time doing surveys just to get a little point! But with My Survery, within 10 or 15 surveys can earn you 1000 points and with that, you are eligible for vouchers, like £10 from Amazon, hmv etc. Originally you can start spending from 200- 500 points, though it's up to you when you want to spend. And they have other companies that you can get deals and vouchers from. But i'm having problem with the browser to use the My Survey Connect:/ Dunno why it won't work for Chrome.

    MySurvey is a decent site. There are days when I qualify for some high point surveys and can rack up 500 points. I do wish they still had the 5 points if you dont quality but now you get a sweepstake reward instead. Would prefer the 5 points. But the few times I had a problem at the end of a survey and did not get my points, I emailed customer service and within a day or two would receive a polite email/apology and have the points added to my account. It does take about 2 weeks to receive money to PayPal account after cashing out.

    I'm repeating some of what was written earlier. This site merged with another (Lightspeed) about a year ago, and it was a positive result with more surveys and bigger points. But just a month or so ago it has reverted to an even worse site than originally existed as My Survey. Points are lower and even the 5 points if not qualified has disappeared. I'll give it a few more months, or until I can cash out next, and then probably drop it unless things improve. Why do survey sites do this?

    I was going to write a comment but Nancy said everything I wanted to so instead of reinventing the wheel so to speak I'm cutting and pasting Nancy's comment which is exactly how I feel! Thanks Nancy...you saved me a whole bunch of typing! Nancy from says: I recently noticed that the points earned are changing. Previously if you didn’t qualify for a survey you were awarded 5 points; now you get an entry into a sweepstakes instead. Yesterday I took a survey and answered 15 questions before I “didn’t qualify” and got a sweepstatkes entry – no points. I feel that my time is worth more than a sweeps entry. I have been a member of this panel for a number of years and seen the questions get lengthier, asking for more info and then rewarding you less and less and in all these years that I have been a loyal member I have never won any of their sweeps or prize chances. I’m fine with not winning but I’m not fine with them gleening info and then telling me quiite a way into the survey that I don’t qualify and then giving me a sweeps entry for my time. Give me 5 points instead! As another reviewer noted, when a survey experiences a problem and you can’t continue, you are not rewarded anything for that either even though the problem is with the survey itself and you may have spent 15 or 20 minutes answering the questions. Customer service is marginal. I recently had two occassions that I needed to contact them with a question/problem. In one instance they responded the next day; the second occasion they never answered me so I sent a repeat question which they still have not answered. I know there are other survey sites out there that reward their loyal members far better than this one. Additional note by me tonight I spent 10 minutes answering questions on a survey...NO points...waste of time!

    ...but still one of the better sites. They incorporated with Lightspeed at the beginning of the year, and even though they still have a few kinks to work out, they're still fair. Recently they've been forgoing awarding 5 points every time you failed to qualify for a survey, and give you a sweepstakes entry instead. I loathe 'entries.' Anyways, my high point with them was last Christmas, when I was sent a Palm Pilot and told to record my snacking habits for two weeks during the holidays. For this I received a $10 Visa Card 'Thank you' gift prior to the survey, and another $50 card AFTER I returned the goods, and then ANOTHER $5 gift card for the follow up survey! When I called twice to inquire about the timeline of the incentive, the phone was answered IMMEDIATELY! Very happy camper.

    I've been a member of MySurvey for about a month and a half now. Of all the panels I've been a part of, they were one of the slowest to start giving surveys. It took several weeks to get my first survey, but the ones since have started to occur more frequently. That said, the ones that I qualify for do tend to be well paying surveys, with one $3.00 and several $1.50 surveys credited to me. And of the ones I disqualified from, most gave me $0.05 as a consolation prize. So, after about a month of actually taking surveys, I've got 990 points in my account (10 points shy of cashing out for $10). Considering that I haven't taken very MANY surveys, this is pretty good reward per survey. Their site is easy to use, and has a neat feature that lets you pick a different color scheme if you don't like the green and orange that is the default. I do wish they'd give me more surveys, but since the ones they do give are so worthwhile, I'll definitely keep them on my list of panels. Spending a few minutes to get a $1.50 or $3.00 reward is definitely a good use of my time, much better than other sites that only pay $0.50 for a half-hour survey!

    Well it has been nearly 10 months since LightSpeed and MySurvey merged, and while there were some bumps in the road I think it has settled down and in my opinion the combined survey panel is even better. Yes, there are some technical issues from time to time, but hey nothing is perfect, especially when computers are involved. One unfortunate thing is that the MySurvey panel used to always give you 5 points if you did not qualify for a survey, but now you will find that they offer a sweepstakes entry sometimes instead (mostly the surveys that say LightSpeed when you click on them). That I guess makes sense since this was LightSpeed's way of doing things before the merge. However, it is not all of the surveys, and I still get some that offer the usual 5 minimum points, so hopefully they will no do away with that policy all together. Now on to the good stuff. Their are a lot more surveys, and product trials as a result of the combined panel. I get about two to three invites per day, so when I have the time, it is not uncommon for me to score 300 points in one sitting. Plus the surveys are actually very interesting and occasionally you will get some cool stuff in the mail to try out. In fact, still using the bottle of after shave lotion i received from one of the surveys i took two months ago. Usually they send small samples to test, but this time they sent me like a three month supply! So in short if you enjoy taking surveys online, and you realize that it is more of a fun hobby that can score you some extra money and cool stuff for free, than you should add MySurvey to your list. Or you could just waste your time gabbing on Facebook :)

    I've been with MySurvey since the end of September 2011 and have received quite a few surveys weekly. MySurvey.ca is the Canadian member panel. The difference between the MySurvey.com and MySurvey.ca is that the Canadian site doesn't offer Paypal as a cash out option, which is really too bad! The points I've received so far are between 5 and 500. The higher the points the longer the survey takes (some of which can be quite long). The minimum redemption rate is 500 points and they offer Amazon.ca, chapters/indigo, tim hortons, cineplex odeon and Airmiles reward points. The also offer cash in the form of a check starting at a minimum 1000 points for $10. They have a donation section where you can donate to UNICEF Childrens Corner. So far this panel is off to a good start and I'm hoping it only gets better!

    While I have had a few technical issues with some of the surveys, MySurvey is an overall solid survey panel. Most of their surveys have a brief intro section where they see if you meet the criteria for the study, and then if you do they offer you points in the range of 75 to as much as 500 points or so to continue. If you do not, then you are usually give 5 points or so. At least this has been my experience so far, and I was able to complete several of the higher point surveys and reach past 1100 level required to redeem for a PayPal payment. My payment was process within about 10 days or so, which is not bad as far as survey panels go. Plus, i find that the surveys are more interesting and relevant than some of the other survey panels, so if you are looking for a good survey panel to join, I would recommend mysurvey.

    My Survey is a reputable survey company. They don't deceive you by gathering all your survey answers and then saying you didn't qualify. Their surveys arrive frequently but not so often as to be annoying. Surveys usually remain open long enough for you to respond, unlike some other survey companies. They pay their rewards fairly promptly but that menas in a few weeks, not immediately. Big bonus- you can get cash payments again unlike many competitors. Surveys could be more user friendly visually. Topics could be more interesting. Some surveys have technical problems and don't advance properly but once you begin you can't go back or re-enter, so only option is to quit and not do that survey. Tech support responds with polite, but canned, message but usually doesn't fix anything. Length of surveys is usually reasonable.

    I have been using mysurvey for four months now and I like. They send you email notifications when there is a survey available for you to take. If you don't qualify you still get 5 points. You can get a good amount of points from the surveys also. I used my points to get an Amazon gift card since I frequent the site often. I think it is worth it. Another plus is that the surveys are usually available to you for more than a day. I'm not sure what the time frame is. The reason I mention this is because I also use myview. Their surveys fill to capacity quickly. There have been times when I got an email about a survey on my view and then when I try to take the survey 8 to 12 hours later I cannot access it and I don't get points. They also have sweepstakes periodically. There's the daily 10,000 point giveaway and they also have a yearly cash giveaway.

    I signed up with MySurvey in April 2011 and have made $50 with them so far. Every week I get about 2-12 surveys from them. I’m usually e-mailed to alert me of their surveys, and occasionally there are surveys available on their site to take as well. Each survey gives you information before you start it. I like how they tell you in advance if you can exit and complete the survey later or if you have to do the survey in one sitting. And if you have to do it all in one sitting you can walk away for a few hours and the survey won’t time out. There are times when their point system bugs me. Most surveys I get tell me that you can get 5-300 points for a survey. I get 5 points when I disqualify, but if I finish the survey I don’t always get 300 points. There were times when I only got 150 points even though I finished the entire survey. I wish the point system would clearly say that you get 5 points if you disqualify and 300 or however much amount if you complete the survey and stop with the ranges of points. The biggest problem I have with MySurvey is I get a lot of surveys that end in errors. The last page of the survey tells me to ‘hit submit and the survey will be complete’, but when I hit submit I get an error page. I used to do their surveys in Google Chrome but MySurvey customer service suggested that I do the surveys in Internet Explorer, but I still a good amount of errors with Internet Explorer too. I will have no problems whatsoever throughout the survey but for some reason the last page is wonky. Their customer service is good though. I call when I have a problem. When I tried to e-mail them, no one ever responded. I write down the survey number before I start the survey so I can keep track of what surveys don’t credit. When I call about the errors their customer service instantly credits my account with the missing points. Some surveys could lead to doing a product test. I have gotten one product from them. Most of the surveys I get from MySurvey are about the food products, drink products, and electronics I buy. When it’s time to cashout there are a wide variety of prizes to choose from. The paypal and gift cards start at $10 (1100 points). I cash out with Amazon gift cards and it takes about a week to arrive. Overall, the good outweighs the bad, so I would recommend MySurvey.

    I was referred by my girlfriend to this site and was very impressed with this survey site. They offer regular surveys via e-mail, which is great and on top of that i can always find more surveys by logging into their members area. They also pay a small compensation for surveys you don't qualify for which is not the norm for most survey panels, The rewards are numerous and easy to obtain if can participate regularly. I am not quite up to 1100 points yet, but close and look forward to cashing out via PayPal.

    I've been a member of MySurvey for about a month now and so far, I can't help thinking about how it doesn't compare to MyView or GlobalTestMarket. First of all, MySurvey doesn't have any profile surveys for you to complete to win points, like at MyView, or get entered into drawings or sweepstakes, like at GlobalTestMarket. However, every time you log in, you can win 10,000 points, awarded once every day or 4,000 dollars, awarded several times a year. That's difficult for me to remember, though, because usually, I just check my emails to see if I have any survey invitations. Which brings me to say that, while I get several surveys a week from MyView and GlobalTestMarket, I usually only get about one survey from MySurvey. So, if you still want to give it a try, then cool, go for it. I mean, everybody's different, but I just want you to know that I think MyView or GlobaTestMarket is more worth your time.

    MySurvey is one of my favorite survey panels because they really have good surveys and they pay via PayPal. I especially like the "techy surveys" they send out because they seem to pay the most for me, but in general I find that there are always surveys for me to take when I log into the panel. You can trade in your points for $10 via PayPal once you have 1100 points, and PerksPlus(their redemeption service) does a great job in getting the rewards out quickly. I usually get my rewards via PayPal within 10 days of redemption. All in all a good panel to join, especially if you want to earn some extra money.

    I joined mysurvey to make some easy money. I get surveys and everything goes smooth. Lately, it seems that ever since I reached the number of points to cash out, my surveys aren't sent and then I don't get my points. I get all the way to the end of a survey that I just spent time on, and then all of a sudden, they say there's an error. This wasn't happening before I reached 1100 points. Other than that, its a good site to take surveys, but something like this could get annoying.

    I have found that the merger with LightSpeed actually worked out better for me. I get about 5 to 10 surveys at least per week, and the pay while not best is good and consistent. The good thing is that even if you do not qualify for the surveys you still get points, and with a little effort you can easily reach the $10 payout (1100 points) within a week a or two. Seriously, earning $10 every few weeks for taking few surveys here and there while I am watching TV in my PJs is not bad.

    I've been with this Survey company for awhile, and Lightspeed panel switched over to MySurvey, and now it seems they're going down hill. I used to get my e-gift certificates right away, now it takes up to 8 weeks. They even invited me to some surveys and cheated me out on points, not once, but twice. Save every email for promised points, so you have something to fall back on. And, they hardly ever send surveys, maybe twice a month or so. Don't see this survey company making it very far.

    I am a fourteen year old and I joined MySurvey looking for a fun way to make money. I have been a member for about a week as of today, and I have only collected 20 points. They have not offered me any surveys since I've registered. I think that there are not many surveys on the sight for younger people like teenagers. There are a lot of other survey sights that I would put first, like MyView.

    This survey panel is my favorite by far, I get surveys all the time in my e-mail and surveys are very easy to understand and complete. Another good thing is that most surveys at least pay 5 points even if you do not qualify and you will usually know that within the first few minutes, so no time is wasted and you can move on to the next survey. When I do qualify for the surveys, the pay is good and It does not take long o earn the 1100 points required to cash out via PayPal. I also like their website. Its easy to navigate and easy to track your earnings and the surveys you have taken. I definitely recommend MySurvey.

    I subscribe to about 10 different survey company's. This one is one of my least favorites. I rarely qualify for the surveys and seldom receive them in my email. I get maybe 10-20 a month. It takes awhile to build up points but, when I finally cash in my points @1100 usually get a $10 restaurant gift cards, which It takes about 6-8 weeks to receive it. You get more points for the surveys they mail to you and also sometimes you get free product to try and evaluate that's a plus. Overall if you have a lot of time it might be something worth trying to see what luck you have.

    I've been a member of this survey site since the beginning of April this year (2011). So far I have accumulated 310 points - roughly the equivalent of about three dollars. Considering that one needs a minimum of 1,100 points to cash out (ten dollar value) I don't feel it's a good start. Most of my "rewards" have been 5 points. At the rate I'm climbing, I expect to eventually cash out ten dollars to paypal around the end of this year. Perhaps they will surprise me; anything is possible. With other sites I belong to, by seven weeks, I've usually gotten much closer to a ten dollar cashout. There's not enough update in the survey area, either. For example, a survey I started but never finished for one reason or another is still listed as an available survey. Yet when I click on the link I get a page telling me I paused the survey and it is now unavailable. They are currently not accepting "friend" referrals, which could be a let down for those who count on making extra money this way. One thing I like about the site in general is being able to choose a them for viewing the site. Also, there are plenty of gift options to choose from. But again, they don't seem to keep many things current, including monthly or daily winners of drawings and such. I will keep going with them in order to cash out once I reach ten dollars. If the survey frequency steps up, or the points increase a bit more quickly, I'll stay with them. Otherwise, I find the other sites I now belong to and am active with more profitable.

    I have been a member of this sight for many many years. Some months I get a lot of surveys, some months I barely get any. I have never won any of the contests though. But many of the surveys I get say I will get 5 points, but once I get into the survey it will offer me more points (generally 40-50) to continue. I will say that once you order a reward, plan on it coming in late! If it says 4-6 weeks, it will not come until the 6th week.

    I don't know exactly how long I've been a member, but I do know that you shouldn't expect to get a ton of money in a month. Pretty much, you can get somewhere between 1 to 5 surveys a week. Each survey, they tell you how much you can get (the minimum for any survey is 5 points [5 cents]). Getting 1100 or so points is the minimum you need in order to cash it in to an Amazon Gift Card, PayPal Credit (What I did), or something else of $10. It did take awhile to get my credit (about two weeks), but I was able to use the money on some stuff I needed. To be honest, the survey's get boring. Constantly clicking on the radio buttons (what people call the bubbles) makes you yawn after a little. Also, most surveys will start up with a few questions to make sure you can go on to the next survey, where the real points come in (if any, they tell you this at the start of the questions). Bottom line: signup if you want a little extra cash. You won't be getting shat loads of money in a day, week, or month, but you should see results after some time has gone by.

MySurvey.com is super safe for all members- it is not a scam. You can see how many points you have earned once you log in and there is a tab on the website to see what kind of rewards or sweepstakes you can potentially earn. I have only been a member for a few days and I have already applied for five surveys! If you have an extra ten minutes when you get home from school or work you should definatley join... especially if you'd like some easy extra CA$H!!!

    Just as reading the Catcher in the Rye, this hope of mine that this survey source would amount to something was terrible shattered by the very poor quality and frequency of the surveys. Starting off, the about me surveys took way too long, and all for nothing. I'm sixteen, this was in the teen sites and yet 45 minutes qualified for me for absolutely nothing? Nothing?! It's been over a week, I still have nothing. I combed the site and found nothing to help me with my dilemma, no methods to boost my frequency or anything. Just nothing. Now, I got like thirty points from all the hog-wash they made me go through, that averages out to.. around 33 cents? Yeah. I'm so glad my time is worth so much to them. I'd like to contribute to the survey/market research part of the world, I really would. I really do try. Yet I get nothing. It's like a backhand to the face. My face and hopes scarred. Hopefully they redeem themselves, but I rather doubt it.

I looked it op online to make sure it was safe and after about a week of my friends telling me how great it was, I finally joined. I am so glad that I joined now. The website is nicely set up and is organized in a way that anyine can navigate around the site. They also have a choice of changing the color scheme to make it how you want! The surveys are wonderful! As soon as I joined the website, I was surprised to have two quizzes waiting for me. Both were quick, maybe only two to five minutes each, and they were super easy to comprehend and answer. I felt like I was actually helping companies by answering. Although you only receive about three to five a week, they reward you some big points which can be later turned into cash. I would recommend this website to anyone wanting to make some quick money in a very simple way and environment. It is like work in your pajamas!

    I would definately recommend MySurvey, I think it's particularly useful if you have been reading or are concerned about internet scams. There are frequent surveys and in the UK there is a very low minimum payout of £3. You can have the money in your PayPal account quite quickly. In a few months I have had two payments of £3 and another payment of £6 to arrive shortly. This is faster than the other companies I've joined although the total amount may be lower. The hourly rate is unlikely to meet that of most peoples regular job but there is a huge potential.

Product Testing = 12: salad dressing, toothpaste, coffee (3x), shampoo/conditioner, face creams/make-up remover, veggie peeler, dog food, toaster pastries Pros: Small rewards if dq'd for a survey (5-10) are better than nothing or 'sweeps entries'; Full size product testing - most allow you to keep any 'unused' product - sometimes requires transferring the product to return the empty container; Good rewards for product testing in addition to the product itself; PayPal in 10-13 days; Good rewards catalog; Sweeps entry everyday just for signing in; List of winners and Blog are easy to access Cons: Infrequent invites; Repetitive qualifiers in every survey; Some surveys are REALLY long and require 'shopping' for 'prize packages' during the survey - which include commercials for various products, seemingly unrelated survey questions (eg: auto survey with health/beauty ad commercials and shopping) to see if you change 'prize brands' after seeing the commercials --- gets very repetitive! Overall, a good site. Great product testing that has exposed me to foods/beverages I would have refused to eat 12 months ago, but now love!

    If you like PT you get the right panel. Mysurvey provide many PTs for members. I have joined the panel for 2 years and get many PTs for fun.Chewing gum,baby care product and so on. I think they provide more PTs for women and children. For the points I have to say it's terrible. Most of them worth 5-10 points and some are only sweepstakes. If you qualitied you will get extra points(25-200points depends on the survey length.200points=2$ and need to spend time 30-40 minutes to complete the survey),And in my experience it's not easy to qualitied. Anyway if you like PT,pick up the panel and enjoy.

    I have been with My Survey for at least 3 years. The surveys are interesting but as of late do not give as many points as they used to give. I have received a number of 5 point and some no point surveys. They do offer a number of ways to redeem your points like pay pal, checks, gift cards or you can select a gift. Each point is worth about a penny, example, you need 1100 points for a $10 pay pal. They do send surveys every few days. If you enjoy doing surveys it is a good site but if you are looking for rewards it is just so so. I am hoping they get better with their points or I may skip them for awhile. Their support is good and do get back to you with any questions you want them to answer or problems to solve.

    I’ve been with MySurvey since late 2008 and have so far earned 11,870 points and cashed out for around $100. It’s a good site and I’ve always been paid on time, but I just don’t get many surveys from them. I’m lucky if I get one survey a week. Qualifying can be difficult, too. Generally, if you don’t qualify for a survey, you just get 5-10 points. It seems to take me forever to get enough points to cash out, too (it takes 1,100 points minimum to cash out, which is equal to $10). I’ve heard from others that they don’t give as many points as they used to, which is disappointing. Payment through PayPal is pretty quick, though (usually a week or so). They also have a gift catalog, which doesn’t really interest me personally, and you get a sweepstakes entry just for signing in to their site or taking a survey. Surveys are usually pretty interesting and not too repetitive or boring. Sometimes they can get a bit long (especially the technology-related ones), but it's usually not too bad. I haven't had any technical issues with them, which has been nice. I do get product tests from them, at least on occasion. I’ve gotten food from them (such as cereal bars, crackers, and cookies), as well as beauty products like moisturizer and makeup. I also completed a week-long beauty product diary a month or so ago, which I got $20 for. That was pretty awesome. I haven’t gotten any focus groups through them. MySurvey is a pretty good survey site, but I just don’t get that many surveys from them or earn enough for them to be in my top 10. They are also starting to have surveys come up that don’t pay any points at all, which is quite disappointing. They are worth signing up for, though. It may just be my demographic since I’ve heard others have done very well with them. They are just one of the slowest survey sites for earning enough to cash out I’ve dealt with so far in my few years of survey taking. They’re worth a shot, but don’t expect a whole ton of surveys.

    As Jim mentioned above, this site can be tricky - many of their survey invitations claim only a meager 5 points, but most of the time those are indeed just the screener questions - once you finish the few quick questions for the original five points, you'll usually be offered a longer survey for many more points immediately following. I had ignored a lot of MySurvey's invites at first because of this, but now that I'm taking them I'm finding that I'm accruing points at a very good pace now. While MySurvey's invitation frequency fluctuates highly (I'll get dozens of invites one month, and none the next) overall I'm finding that I have a high rate of qualifying and completing surveys providing that I respond within a day or two of receiving the invite. The points offered are always worth the time spent - and once I've passed the initial qualifying questions, I've never had an instance of disqualifying for the longer survey that follows. MySurvey is definitely proving to be one of the more worthwhile panels!

    Please don't be mislead by receiving a survey invation from this company indicating a reward of just 5 points (when it takes 1100 points to cash out). These quick, generally 5-minute, 5 point surveys operate the same way as those "screeners" you receive from other companies that don't offer any compensation for pre-qualification. It's been my experience that completing these short five-pointers is what leads you to the bigger offerings...and usually immediately thereafter. I've taken many surveys with this firm and have been credited some big bucks and have never had a problem cashing out. Don't listen to any negative comments but instead sign up and you'll certainly find out that my testimony is completely accurate.

    Mysurvey is not one of my favorite sites but it is definitely not near the bottom either. Sometimes their surveys are a bit long for the incentive but most of them that I have taken are interesting and not too tedious. You definitely won't make a lot of money on this site since it only has given me an average of 2 or 3 surveys a week and some surveys only pay 5 cents. Once in a while they will send you a survey that pays out 250 or even 1000 (very rare) points. You need to accumulate 1100 points to redeem $10 in Paypal so.It pays a little less than a penny per point. For someone just starting out on the survey scene (or even for experienced survey takers) I would definitely recommend Mysurvey.

MySurvey.com $122.45 (1000 points = $10 minimum pay out point) (product tests) (Joined: 2008-02-02) ($80 rec'd) ($40 req'd) MySurvey.com is the best place to receive new products for testing and to be paid for your input. In the two years I have been a member I have received at least a dozen products including soup, deodorant, shampoo, body wash, razors, paper towels and toilet paper. Surveys are worth up to 1500 points each and you can request your reward points after you reach 1000 points ($10). I have redeemed 120000 points for cash, which arrives by check in about four weeks, but they also have a nice variety of gift cards and prizes, including tote bags, a pair of binocular, backpack, party cooler, coffee maker, watches, toaster oven, Canon Powershot camera, Sony portable DVD player, 8-piece cookware set and a Magellan GPS. You can also donate to a variety of worthwhile charities. Every single day someone wins 10,000 points in their Extravaganza Daily Give-Away. They also offer various other sweepstakes for 50,000 and 100,000 points as well as a bi-monthly $10,000 sweepstakes. You earn 25 points for installing the MySurvey Messenger toolbar, 150 points for referring someone and automatic entry into the $10,000 sweepstakes just for being a member and another entry each day you log into MySurvey.com.

They send surveys through email and award Points for taking their surveys, which is counted as 100 Points = $1. Once we aquire 1000 Points ($10) in our account we are eligible to redeem out Points. MySurvey is a good paying Survey Panel, where we can earn real money for taking Surveys. I don't know why most survey takers underestimate this Survey Panel. Besides earning money from this Survey Panel, I have done quite a lot of Product Tests for them and have earned great Full Size household products for free, which is really great since those products would cost a lot in the market if we were to buy them. They pay their rewards by checks, and the checks reach us within reach us within 2-3 weeks. They send us surveys as well as give us some long-term Projects to do (which continues till 6 months to a year). Sometimes they also send us surveys through TNS, which they say is their sister Company. I have done some Projects for TNS, and have earned some extra money, which they pay by cash and is not included within their Points System. Nowadays, I am getting more surveys from them, at least 2-3 per week.

    I've been a member of this panel for perhaps a little over 2 months now and I have had a pretty good experience so far. For me though, the surveys are few and far between. Maybe 1 or 2 a month. When you first join, you recieve a lot of screener surveys to get your account on track which gets your points off to a good start! Also, after being a member for a month, I automatically got 10pts which I thought was cool! Lately too, I've found that along with the survey invites I recieve, I've been given the opportunity for an additional survey along with it for extra points. Those end up being about 50pts total. I also was able to sign up for a product testing opportunity as well. As far as rewards go, you have the choice of a cash reward or an array of merchandise. I haven't been able to cash out yet due to the slim amount of surveys but I'm holding on until then. Overall, this panel isn't as productive for me as the other panel's I am a member of, but its a good one to keep on the side.

I have not received any samples from them in months either. However, they do credit your account almost immediately which is appreciated. The surveys are short and somewhat fun. Doubt you would not like them, give it a try!
