My Current Top Ten Paid Surveys List (January 2011)
    1. Opinion Outpost
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $713.70
      • Last Payment: $49.20 on November 12, 2010
      • Joined: 2008-02-04
In December I completed 29 surveys for 551 points ($51.10). I currently have 53 points credited. I requested a check for $49.80 on January 3, 2011.
    1. GlobalTestMarket
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $658.90
      • Last Payment: $51.25 on December 4, 2010
      • Joined: 2008-03-01
In December I completed 17 surveys for 715 points ($35.75). I currently have 820 points ($41) credited.
    1. SurveySpot
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $585.00
      • Last Payment: $50 on November 6, 2010
      • Joined: 2008-01-30
In December I completed 13 surveys with SurveySpot for 10,000 points ($100). I have three surveys completed, but not yet credited, for 350 points ($3.50). I currently have 4300 points ($43). In spite of others complaining about SurveySpot, I did very well, if not the best ever, last month; although I have not had a survey credited since 12/21 thus far this year.
    1. Toluna
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $527.02
      • Last Payment: $20 on January 12, 2011
      • Joined: 2008-02-11
In December I completed too many surveys for the Toluna online survey history. I currently have 19,418 points ($6.47). I am not counting the Quick Surveys worth 15, 30, 45, 60, 75 and 105 points each as “completed surveys”. This site is currently my best earner, but requires the most amount of time and effort.
    1. Surveyhead
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $444.15
      • Last Payment: $25 on January 11, 2011
      • Joined: 2009-02-05
In December I completed one survey for $1. I currently have $15.10 in rewards with $5 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.
    1. Valued Opinions
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $364.45
      • Last Payment: $20 Amazon gift card on December 4, 2010
      • Joined: 2008-02-11
In December I completed nine surveys for $14.50. I currently have $13.95 in rewards with $3.50 pending.
    1. MyView
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $261
      • Last Payment: $25 Virtual Prepaid Visa® Card on November 19, 2010
      • Joined: 2009-03-01
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 cannot stress enough that 350-point surveys are worth 25 cents, 500-point surveys are worth 35 cents and the 700-point surveys are worth 50 cents. I currently have 17,525 points ($14.02).
    1. Pinecone Research
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $195
      • Last Payment: $3 on December 7, 2010
      • Joined: 2008-04-03
In December I completed one survey for $3. This survey site is vastly better when the free products are considered.
    1. MySurvey.com
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $195
      • Last Payment: $10.00 on December 16, 2010
      • Joined: 2008-02-02
In December I completed 12 surveys for 910 points ($8.27). I currently have 990 points ($9.05). This survey site is vastly better when the free products are considered.
    1. Elite Opinions
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $185
      • Last Payment: $15 on January 11, 2011
      • Joined: 2009-03-11
In November I completed two surveys for 3850 points ($35). I currently have 175 points ($3.18) pending. Do you have a list of favorite survey panels?

    Linda, actually, we are now giving away three $10 prizes each week for the top reviews left on the main site. Just click on the Post a Review link for the survey panel that you wish to review. So if you participate in any of the survey panels on our site this is a good way to get started.

    As Lee says, we send invites to individuals that demonstrate good writing skills and knowledge of survey panels to be guest bloggers for us. Hope you give the reviews a try!

    After years of keeping meticulous records of every survey site and how much I earned, several sites asked me to contribute written articles, including this one. You can easily earn $10 per article by reviewing your favorite survey sites on GetPaidSurveys website. Each week the two best reviews win $10. That's how I got started. I also received writing assignments from YourFreeSurveys and I post them on their forum.
  • Linda April 13, 2011 Reply
    Where are you getting paid for written assignments? I'd really be interested in that.

    Thanks but that's too many for me to join. I only want to join a few. I want to join ones like Pinecone and Mysurvey. Those two surveys groups that I just mentioned don't disqualify me all the time and I actually earn points. I am currently working and going to school so I have limited time to do surveys. I just want to be able to get through the surveys and earn points.

    It really depends on your demographics, but I like these:

    I started keeping records of my online paid surveys January 31, 2008. I spend an average of two to three hours per day taking surveys. Here are the amounts that I have earned from my 27 best paid online survey sites. I have earned $8342.85 in 33 months from 27 survey sites, which is $252.81 per month. The average survey site earned $9.36 per month. My actual receipts are $8093.65, which is $245.26 per month. I have added the dates that I joined each site as well as whether they have PayPal, Invokes or product tests. About 10% of my earnings are from product tests and Invoke Interactives. Another 10% is from survey sites that I don't earn enough per year to bother keeping track. I do not keep track of prizes or free products, but I do include contest wins and forum moderation fees. I only add in points accumulated after they have been redeemed due to the difficulty of calculating point values. I am now including earnings from written assignments and forum moderation fees to show why I might be less inclined to continue with trial offer sites like Tik Tik Cash ($106.06), InboxDollars/SendEarnings ($270.39), Daily Paid Surveys ($95.75), etc. 76.17% of all of my earnings comes from my ten best survey sites.

    Do you know any survey groups that don't keep disqualifying you? I know about Mysurvey and Pinecone. I need others. Thanks for the earlier advice.
  • LapisLee January 23, 2011 Reply
    Lose Memolink, but stick with GlobalTestMarket and Pinecone. Pinecone has a lot of good product tests.

    I read this and I was wondering, which survey site pays well and won't disqualify you? I know about Pinecone and Mysurvey. I can't seem to get into Pinecone. Those two survey sites that I just mentioned are good ones that don't disqualify you. I am not liking memolink and global test market so far. I've tried to take surveys and am not qualifying.
