      • Last Payment: $49.20 on November 12, 2010
      • Joined: 2008-02-04
In January I completed 12 surveys for 234 points ($23.40). I currently have 329 points credited ($32.90). I requested a check for $49.80 on January 3, 2011.
    1. GlobalTestMarket
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $708.90
      • Last Payment: $51.25 on January 12, 2011
      • Joined: 2008-03-01
In January I completed nine surveys for 340 points ($17). I currently have 225 points ($11.25) credited.
    1. SurveySpot
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $629.00
      • Last Payment: $44 on January 31, 2011
      • Joined: 2008-01-30
In January I completed no surveys with SurveySpot. I have three surveys completed, but not yet credited, for 350 points ($3.50). I currently have 300 points ($3). SurveySpot has fallen off dramatically for me since December.
    1. Toluna
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $547
      • Last Payment: $20 on January 12, 2011
      • Joined: 2008-02-11
I currently have 13,093 points ($4.36). This site is currently my best earner, but requires the most amount of time and effort. Increasingly, I am simply skipping all of the surveys for 1800 points ($0.60).
    1. Surveyhead
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $446.65
      • Last Payment: $25 on January 11, 2011
      • Joined: 2009-02-05
In January I completed three surveys for $7.50. I currently have $12.60 in rewards with $6.50 pending. The reason I was not receiving surveys from Surveyhead since Nov. 8, 2010 was because my account was suspended for having four “Invalids” in the past year. I contacted Surveyhead in December and they restored my account due to my long history. Update: Have not received any surveys from Surveyhead since January 19, 2011 and once again suspect that my account has been suspended. I see one “Invalid” from where a survey ended prematurely on January 13, 2011.
    1. MySurvey.com
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $445
      • Last Payment: $10.00 on January 26, 2011
      • Joined: 2008-02-02
In January I completed 22 surveys for 665 points ($6.05), including 50 points migrated from the merger with Lightspeed. I currently have 425 points ($4.67). This survey site is vastly better when the free products are considered. They also moved up in the rankings considerably after I combined my previous earnings from Lightspeed with MySurvey.com.
    1. Valued Opinions
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $391.70
      • Last Payment: $20 Amazon gift card on February 12, 2011

In January I completed nine surveys for $14.50. I currently have $13.95 in rewards with $3.50 pending.
    1. MyView

The average survey on MyView is worth about 40 cents and none of them take less than 15 minutes to complete; many are longer. I currently have 30,925 points ($22.08). I’m no longer bothering with the 350-point ($0.25) surveys. I have requested $50 in Amazon gift cards on February 7 and February 13, 2011. They take about a week to arrive via email.
    1. SurveySavvy
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $239
      • Last Payment: $56 on January 24, 2011
      • Joined: 2008-04-03
Survey Savvy does not give you a convenient way to track your surveys completed. I requested a check for $42 on February 4, 2011.
    1. Elite Opinions
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $200
      • Last Payment: $15 on February 11, 2011

In January I completed no surveys. I currently have 25 points ($0.28) pending. Do you have a list of favorite survey panels?

    Thanks. I prefer to spend no more than two or three hours per day, but lately I have been at my computer as long as five hours, usually from noon to 5pm. I rarely take any surveys after 7pm except for Invoke Interactives. The rejection rate varies widely from site to site. Some sites like SurveySavvy and FocusForward I hardly ever qualify, but others like GlobalTestMarket or OpinionOutpost I have much better luck. If I have more than a few disqualifications with a survey site that take longer than 10-15 minutes within one week's time, I will email the company and complain about it. I want to be disqualified within five or ten minutes not after reaching the end of a 20-minute long survey and answering a hundred questions!

    Nicely done list. How long, on average, do you spend doing these surveys per day? What is your 'average' rejection rate? I use the term 'average' loosely here, of course. I've had a lot of experiences wherein I answer up to 15 minutes of questions only to be told I don't qualify, or that my particular demographic has reached the desired number of responses...
