i am doing this survey its nice.
July 29, 2013
I think it pays good because it doesn't take that much time to answer the surveys.
January 19, 2013
I personally like SurveySavvy. I agree it does take a long time to get credited though. I make about $20 per month with them and I receive very nice invitations that usually pay about $10. Many of them are related to my position at work. I am an assistant manager at small trucking company and I get many surveys about computer and hardware usage and purchases. I must confess I do promote myself to a manager when I respond to these surveys but I have full knowledge of decision process in our company. I donâ€™t respond to all surveys but from time to time I don't mind to spend 10 minutes and make $10 or $20.

I am a member of survey savvy for 2 mos now besides to the fact that i have only done 1 survey. The payment for that survey is not credited to my account. Actually it is just a trial if this site is really real or not. I regret reffering members to survey savvy. I didnt earn anything for the survey i have done. Hope you learn from my mistake. I dont recommend you to join this site.

I am very sorry to hear about your experience with SurveySavvy and SavvyConnect.
Please email me at [email protected] and I will personally look into your account.
August 11, 2012
I joined survey savvy at the beginning of May 2012. I did numerous surveys and installed savvy connect on my computer. After 2 months, my stats indicated that I did not do any surveys and I was not credited for the time they were collecting data from my computer through savvy connect. I contacted the company and was told to send a list of the surveys I had completed. I sent in the list and also again mentioned that I was not getting credit for savvy connect. A month later I still had not received a response from them. I still was not being credited for the surveys and still not credited for savvy connect. I DO NOT recommend participating with this company if you want to get paid for the surveys you do. They don't deliver and their customer support is non-existent!

65$ in one year??....isn't that such an a small price for be wasting energy for a year while been in the computer, i hope i get more. But my real interest is that i'm a noob at this, and it's been a day and i haven't receive any emails for survey offers, in fact i don't know how the web page works because its still says that i have not have an invitation.
February 7, 2012
I have now been a member of SurveySavvy for about a year now. So far I have earned total $65 dollars from them and am very happy. I had to contact their support once as one of the survey links was down. They were very friendly and thanked me for telling them and sent me a new link.

I've just joined surveysavvy a few weeks ago. I've been receiving lots of survey invitations in my email but whenever I attempt to join one, I get disqualified after the basic gender, employment status and birth date questions. Why is that? Can someone share any tips on how to qualify? I'm from Austin, TX btw if that's a problem with the demographic thing. Thanks, I appreciate your responses.
GetPaidSurveys.com reply: There are a lot of reasons why you might disqualify. I would highly recommend that you sign up for our free seven day course (there is a registration link on the main page here: www.GetPaidSurveys.com). Day 3's topic is specifically about survey disqualifications and understanding what could cause them. I think that will help you greatly.
January 11, 2012
SurveySavvy's surveys although infrequent were quality surveys to answer and compensation was good. Then, things started to change, poor, argumentative or non-existent support responses, payment received months late with erroneous excuses, even for a few dollars, and now not one single survey invitation for over a year. The owner of the company said in early 2011 they are only doing specialized targeted surveys for professionals now and may begin standard consumer surveys again. What I don't understand is I've been a member for at least 10-years, haven't received an invitation for a year, yet others are saying do on a regular basis. So which is it?
Hannah at GetPaidSurveys.com note: I personally have received 8 survey invitations from them in the past month, so they are still sending out invitations. Unfortunately, you may not meet the demographic criteria for the surveys they are currently sending. You may try contacting them again to be sure there is nothing wrong with your account.

I have been a member of Survey Savvy for a few years and until recently all has gone smooth. There payments were always sent out in a timely manner, but this has changed. They have extended their payment time to twelve weeks from the time of request. All other survey sites are prompt to send out payment or at least have a tracking system to know what the status of your payment is. When measuring all the survey sites and the payment side one has to ask would you wait to receive payment on a product or service three months from the time service was rendered. I am waiting on one check and it is week ten, if you contact them they only tell you they have twelve weeks to respond. I have just requested another check that will clear out my account. If this check takes the same amount of time, I may have to leave based on improper treatment for services rendered.
December 2, 2011
Barely ever get a survey, less than 1 a month and on average you get $2.50. On the upside you get paid good for your time, and you can cash out whenever you want. I wouldn't say the surveys are the most interesting, but they are definitely not the worst.
October 14, 2011
i have been with survey savvy for about 5 years already and i love it. Sometimes they have long surveys and then they have short surveys, and the longer they are the more pay it is.
September 29, 2011
i miss getting more surveys,,ihave been a member for almost 3-years,there surveys are easy and always things that i care about,,not sure but in the last year i think there are more members than when i started,so guess what..we have got to share surveys,if you dont like sawy,stop .dont be a member,,then there more for me,,lol just kidding this site can only send out surveys that they get,they get busy in nov..so hang on,
July 21, 2011
I joined Survey Savvy a few weeks ago, and I am very impressed. Just two days after I signed up, I already had three survey invitations. I usually receive between 1-2 a week. Most surveys are between 15 to 45 minutes long, and pay between $5 and $15. I spent 30 minutes on a survey, and i earned $10! Their customer service is great too, they reply very quickly, and they treat you very nicely. It is also great that they pay by check, and that you could request a payment at any time no matter how much money you're account has. The only problem I have had so far with Survey Savvy is that some of their surveys are a bit repetitive, but I don't think it's a problem because you get paid a lot anyway. I would definitely recommend this site.
June 9, 2011
Today i recieved a survey and was very satisified with it. It was of good quality, and i was very interested in the topic of the survey. This is a outstanding site that can be trusted. It gives you surveys very quickly. I haven't been a memeber very long, but i know when there's a good site and this is one of them. Another good thing about this site is that you don't have to worry about a point system which i absolutely love, because whenever you want to cash out you can cash out. So, to anyone look ing for a good site this one i HIGHLY recommend!!!!!!!!!
June 9, 2011
I have been a member of SurveySavvy for a little over the year and although it is not one of the top sites in my opinion, it is worth the time. The surveys are usually 10 or 20 minutes and will pay 1 to 2 dollars. From time to time, you will receive ones for $5 or $10. I usually receive between 3-5 surveys per week which in my experience is about average and the topics are pretty far ranging. The payment system is fairly simple as they only pay by check. The good news is that you do not need to reach a minimum amount to cash out, the bad news is the that the time it takes to receive a check is usually around six weeks. SurveySavvy won't generate as much money as some of the others but it is very consistent and dependable. If you don't mind waiting for your checks, I would recommend giving it a chance.
May 11, 2011
I joined Survey Savvy for 1 year off and on; completed few survey made
$20.00. Today, receive a check for $11.00 took four weeks. I enjoy Survey Savvy
but my only complaint not enough surveys.
May 2, 2011
I am one who does "countless" surveys a day. Doing Surveys from SurveySavvy are the ones I look MOST forward to do. I've done SurveySavvy surveys long enough to know that there will be a check in thet mail soon after I finish.
Just today, I received a check in the mail for $22.00 - For ONE Survey!!! I whole-heartedly recommend SurveySavvy surveys to AnyBody getting started in surveys. I also recommend SurveySavvy to the veteran survey'ers to add to their list of suveys to do (join) whether you replace another servey site or just add it to your list.
April 27, 2011
A lot of people have posted many great reviews, I am not denying that any of them are true however I have been a member for almost two weeks now and I have not recieved any surveys yet. I have filled out all the information on my profile trying to make it as detailed as possible and answered/completed almost all of the available portraits, I have tried everything I can think of and still nothing... I understand that you may not always qualify for a survey but I haven't even been asked so I find that kind of frusterating. I would recommend SurveySavvy to my friends but not if they are looking for some quick and easy money because although there is the possibility that you may get lucky, the chances are low.
April 24, 2011
I joined this website about a month ago and have only been sent one survey, for the longest time I didn't even know where on the website to look to see if I had any! In my opinion they need to update their website too, it says the survey company thingamajig (don't really know what to call it) was made in like 1999, it sure looks like it. Kinda hard to navigate, not really easy to tell if you have any surveys. I don't really like it.
April 23, 2011
SurveySavvy is one of my better survey sites but it could definitely be better. One really good thing about this site is that they give you at least $1 per survey and that with that $1 you could cash out if you wanted to. The bad news... they send me a survey about once every 2 weeks. I have $2 in my account so far which seems less than impressive compared to my current favorite survey site. I wouldn't say that this site is a waste of time by any means, but I could really use some more opportunities.
April 19, 2011
The one thing I like about SurveySavvy is that you can cash out with a dollar. The bad part? They send a check. And the check takes about five weeks to arrive after cashing out. By the time you finish a survey, and it finishes it's pending status, and you put in for a cashout, and finally get the check, over two months have gone by. Sometimes the surveys are slow in coming; other times, I find plenty each week in my email. When there are lots of surveys forthcoming, it's usually easy to qualify for some of them. Last year I cashed out a 54.00 check right before the holidays; this year I am up to 27.00 so far. I prefer waiting until I have a good amount before cashing out, so I will wait until it reaches 50 dollars before doing so. At least I find out fairly quickly if I qualify for a survey or not. There's no filling out ten minutes of survey style questions only to find out I don't qualify! That's a plus. I would recommend Surveysavvy to a friend, but with the caution that you won't get rich, and the money doesn't pour in quickly at times.
March 12, 2011
I have been a panel member in surveysavvy for almost 2 years now. I have been impressed by the overall quality of the survey and the rewards/incentive on offered for completing a survey is fairly good comparing to other survey sites. The only downside, for me, being a non-US, is the frequency of survey invitation I receive, which means that less opportunity for earning. Otherwise, this is a very good site to earn extra bucks. I would love to have the opportunity to participate in a survey at least once a week.
Overall, this is a very good paid survey site to join. So hurry..Come...join and start earning like I do.
January 28, 2011
While it IS hard to qualify for surveys.. when you do qualify you will ALWAYS get paid by check. So far I have earned $38 on surveysavvy alone. However, I was lucky enough to take a survey for Clean&Clear and qualified to be part of an online community where I was paid $10 a month to take surveys for their studies. I earned about $65 just from there! How lucky of me! So surveysavvy gives you those kind of great extra opportunities. I would recommend it to anyone. (I first heard of it from SEVENTEEN magazine.. thats how I knew it was legit!)
December 30, 2010
I joined Survey Savvy a couple of months ago, and cashed out a $17 check immediately. The check came fast, and I loved it! Now, I have cashed out a $5.00 check. I just cashed out a few minutes ago, so I haven't received my check yet. I am sure that it will be here fast, as the last one. I like Survey Savvy because there is no minimum amount when you can cash out. I hate having to wait forever to get a check. This site is my favorite, and I do lots of surveys daily. I will stay with this company. So far, I am very happy with the surveys and getting paid fast.
November 6, 2010
I joined in 2007, and till date I have been paid $111 via check. I am an IT professional and I had received 2 to 3, $10-$20 surveys. I was totally startled when I completed them. Now they don't send too many surveys. Referral system is also good, but there is no scope for referral earnings.
Anyways as mentioned above, this survey company is best suited for US citizens
November 5, 2010
I recently joind and never get invited to surveys. The one time I did I didnt qualify now I sit around wondering why I dont get invited to surveys. Today Nov 5 2010 I tried to log in but the site dont alow you to. This site ended up being a waste of time compared to the other sites like lightspeed or Toluna I dont understand how this site rates 5 star they never give surveys to beable to rate. Im sure there are better sites than surveysavvy
October 19, 2010
the system works well so long as people are not blocking the pages
although no one would complain if there were more surveys
October 8, 2010
It all depends how you complete your profile. More detailed profile will bring you more surveys. And I would say, a little technique let you successfully finish and get paid for most of the surveys you received. I believe this site pays fairly good. Search "qsmoke zhao" on facebook and you will see some proofing pictures.
October 6, 2010
The date of this review is 10-6-10 and I have cashed out on 4 seperate occasions with Survey Saavy since 9-10-10 (just 26 days) and have earned a total of $43.00 in doing so. That in itself may not appear to be earth shattering but when you consider that it only took 6, YES JUST SIX, total surveys to earn this amount it is certainly noteworthy. That's an average payout of more than $7.00 per survey and I ask, how many times have you seen that kind of money offered anywhere else? I have taken surveys on this site paying anywhere from $2.00 to $15.00 EACH, and that's quite exciting and extremely rewarding since most surveys only take 15 to 20 minutes. And they sweeten the pot buy letting you cash out for as little as one dollar. How many other places can you find a cash out threshold that low?
The quality of surveys is top notch and I receive an adequate number weekly. I have found qualification not to be difficult and estimate I qualify for approximately 65% of their offerings. I have had cause to communicate with their member support department and was favorably responded to the very same day. Quite simply folks, I couldn't ask for more.
If you are new to survey taking I understand that reading reviews can be quite confusing as one person may dislike a firm while another loves the very same one. So here's my humble suggestion: Forget the negative and find out first hand by signing on. I promise you will be well satisfied with Survey Saavy, but please find out for yourself. If you're looking for those hard to find "Big Bucks" look no further, this is it!
September 19, 2010
I joined SurveySavvy a couple of months ago and am fairly happy with it. They give interesting surveys that pay pretty well. I believe one survey actually paid over $5.00 which doesn't happen on most sites. The only downside to this site is that they send out emails for new surveys pretty infrequently. I have only been invited to about 5 or 6 surveys since I signed up and I only qualified for 2 or 3. It's possible that the site will eventually grow and offer more surveys so I would definitely recommend it.
September 13, 2010
I joined this site a long time ago..not sure when, but I don't really have much time to take the surveys it seems like a good site to make some extra money..I do get at least one survey per day..And some times I get around 2 of them. The only down side is that I don't qualify for a lot fo them, but It's cuz I haven't really filled out much onf my info in their site..But overall I think that there is a good potential if you do this a lto..so overall I think I like it.
August 16, 2010
Becasue you can not only make money from the surveys you take but you can earn more from the people you refer to the site. When your referrals and your referrals referrals complete surveys you make money.
The more of your profile you fill out on the surveysavvy site, the more surveys you will get, and be disqualified from less. while some months have less surveys than others, an accurate pitcure of yourself will help you to get more.
Lastly you will not spend much time on a survey before being disqualified. There are screener questions based on a company's need that you fill out before the survey begins. These a quick and easy demographic questions.
Overall SurveySavvy is a great survey site to earn some extra cash in your free time.
August 15, 2010
Though Surveysavvy claim to be open to countries other than USA it is a waste of time, in 30 months I have earned 25 dollars which is paid to me in the form of a cheque which will be difficult to cash or deposit and will surely cost me in commission.
Advice steer clear if you are not in America
July 31, 2010
Surveysavvy is good but it lacks survey opp. I hardly get any and I been with them for a month. I am still new but come on still have not received a survey. Well worth it though.
July 29, 2010
I like taking surveys with SurveySavvy, I've been a member for a while now. The surveys from SurveySavvy are interesting and when you complete a survey, the payment gets credited into your account in 4-6 weeks. SurveySavvy also has a referral program where you can invite your friends to join. I would recommend SurveySavvy to everyone who enjoys taking surveys,
July 28, 2010
The surveys are about various topics, which I like. The more surveys you do, the frequency increases. I generally get a survey once a week. Maybe it's because I usually do surveys that pay at least $5 or more. Most surveys pay $1-$5. However, I do receive surveys that pay as much as $20 for 30 minutes of work. That's excellent pay! The payment process takes 4-6 weeks, which I don't like. But with so many members, I can understand the time it takes, so the wait is worth it. Also, the rewards you get for referrals are great, too! Half of my income from surveysavvy comes from referrals, and I also got $20 in misc. incentives, as they call it. Overall, good site.
July 21, 2010
seems like when i do get them, i do not qualify for most of them. the ones ido qualify for is minimal like 1 dollar with the most being 3 dollars. i have made $20 something dollars total. it would be nice if i could qualify for more with larger payouts.
July 2, 2010
Great to be a member with them, I have earned about $94.00 with the so far I get to so some surveys and sometimes not but I do love the site.
June 23, 2010
I can understand why many people would get frustrated with this panel - the amount of surveys sent out each month can swing dramatically from either just one or two all the way to twelve or more. Qualifying can be even worse - I've gone for months and never made any headway, only to suddenly pick up three invites right in a row with no problem. So I've added SurveySavvy to my "small but keep" list. For the surveys I disqualify for, I'm canceled out immediately; for the ones that I do qualify for, the time spent and the incentive offered is very fair. And since SurveySavvy offers pay-outs as soon as you reach $1 (very easy, since almost all of their surveys are for $1 or more), there's no feeling of useless waiting.
I've made $5 now since joining six months ago...while not a lot in comparison to other panels, the time commitment on my side is very justified by the incentive offered, and I'm happy for the opportunity to make a few extra bucks with them!
June 22, 2010
I've been a member of surveysavvy for a little over 2 months now, hoping to make a little extra cash, but not the case. in 2 months I have been offered 6 surveys, non-of which I qualified for and have recieved nothing.
May 10, 2010
Yesterday I found theyâ€™ve only paid me for half of the fully completed surveys Iâ€™ve fiinished in the last 16 months! I e-mailed them yesterday and am still expecting a reply.
Keep track of every survey you completely finish!
If I donâ€™t get my money, Iâ€™m most definitely filing a complaint with the BBB!
UPDATE: I was eventually paid for each survey I kept track of. Still, my advice remains the same. Keep your own records.
April 22, 2010
I've already being a member of survey savvy for 2 months and until now I never get a survey inviitation. I've already fill in their questions and fill in my profile but....nothing ! Im very disappointed.....
April 14, 2010
I joined back in 2005.Honestly, I spent very little time doing surveys over the years because I dident have the free time. Now that I do have the time, I am glad to be a member of SurveySavvy. I like the idea that the company has been around since 1977.The fact that they pay in cash(via checks) only.
I get about 3-10 surveys a week, though I do not qualify for more than half,(alot of IT surveys.) it seems to work out ok. What I do qualify for tend to be worth more money,$2 and up.(I did one a few weeks ago for $15)
If you are tring to get rich by doing surveys,good luck. If you want some extra money from time to time,and belong to a few different sites,then you really should put this one on your list.
January 20, 2010
I have been with Survey Savvy for about 3 years and I might have done one survey with them, I can't remember because it was soooo long ago that I did it.
I'm not sure if it's because I live in Sydney Australia, but when I first joined Survey Savvy they said that was fine. People from Australia are more then welcome, I have filled all my profiles and everything is up-to-date. I really would not recommend Survey Savvy, the only good thing about this survey site is the fact that you can join. THAT'S IT!!!!
January 16, 2010
what a scam.....Hey Doug take this survey for $3....yes a survey Iam rich.....15 min later after I do the whole survey on ice cream.....oh sorry Doug we have all the people we need or you dont qualify....WTF I just spent 15 min taking this Sh**. and your not going to pay me.
This is a scam
You take the survey and all they have to do is pop that screen up and there covered.
January 4, 2010
I have been a member of Survey Savvy for about three years. I have been impressed with them on the quality of surveys and the amount offered per survey. Surveys pay from $1 to $10 but I just completed one for $20. One time I took a survey that led to a long time study that paid me a couple hunderd dollars. The only downside is the frequency of surveys. I receive about one survey a week. Member support has been very good. I certainly recommend them as a site to join!
January 4, 2010
SurveySavvy is a decent survey company. The quality of the survey is in general good, but I don't get that many (1 - 2 per week). Qualifying for those is not easy: I qualify usually for 1 out of every 8 - 10 surveys, so for me it took a long time to build up a decent pay out. Also it takes more than a month for the check to arrive, which is rather long for survey companies.
January 3, 2010
I have been a member of this Survey Panel from June, 2008 i.e. almost an year and a half and have so far earned $720 from them, which is definitely an amount to be envied for by other survey takers.
It was my great luck that in 2008 I got involed with a Monthly IT Project through this Panel, and took surveys for that Project each month for almost 9 months, which let me earn around $450 for the Project itself.
SurveySavvy send me surveys almost 1-2 times a week which may range from $1 to $40 or more. I also qualify for most of their surveys. It is a Survey panel which lets me earn consistently each month. Also their surveys are very interesting to take.
We can request for Payment at any time we have money in our account, which may be as little as $1. They pay us by check which reach us within 4-6 weeks.
I definitely recommend this Survey Panel to all eligible people to join this Legitimate Survey Panel and take the opportunity of earning cash for free.
December 31, 2009
10. SurveySavvy $117 (2008-03-01) ($114 rec'd)
I joined SurveySavvy in March 2008 and I have qualfied for and taken 18 surveys for $117. This is enough to place them 10th on my list of my 25 best survey sites. You can expect to earn between $1 and $10 for each survey that you qualify for. They pay by check, not PayPal and the checks usually arrive in 4-6 weeks.
They have an excellent referral system, but I have never felt comfortable with referring friends to survey sites.
The surveys are interesting when I qualify for them and their customer service always resolves any disputed survey payments, which have popped up on occaision. Everyone needs to be a member of SurveySavvy, but they wonâ€™t be making hundreds of dollars a year unless they are in the IT field or really get active promoting and referring their friends to the site.
