Opinion Place is one of the lesser-known survey panels out there. Although they do not offer as many surveys as other survey panels, they do pay and are an easy way to make a few bucks a week. The main issue with them is that you can only take one survey with them every seven days. This makes them a goo...

April was another slow month for me with my regular survey panels. Global Test Market performed the best for me and is continuing to provide me with a steady stream of surveys each week.

In March, I paid a bit more attention to my survey panels than I had been. I also narrowed things down a bit. There are several panels that are paying me less than a dollar for half an hour’s work. That is definitely NOT worth it to me, so I’ve been getting those up to a cash-out level, cashing o...
