LapisLee’s Top Ten Survey Panels (August 2011)

Posted on by

Here is my Top Ten Surveys list for the month of August 2011. This month I decided to include the actual checks I received from a several of the survey panels from my top 10: Opinion Outpost, GlobalTestMarket, Toluna and Ipsos.My Current Top Ten Paid Surveys List (August 2011)
    1. Opinion Outpost
      • Total Earned Since Joining: $1028.90
      • Total Earned This Month: $27
      • Last Payment Received: $52.50 check on August 9, 2011
      • Last Payment Requested: $52.00 on August 25, 2011
      • Joined: February 4, 2008
In July I completed 23 surveys for 270 points ($27). I currently have 143 points ($14.30) credited. I am not very happy with the increasing ratio of 10-point ($1) surveys to others. Last month 19 of the 23 surveys I completed were for 10 points or less. Here is the check I received from my last payment from Opinion Outpost.
    1. GlobalTestMarket
      • Total Earned Since Joining: $864.90
      • Total Earned This Month: $25.25
      • Last Payment Received: $50.50 check on September 9, 2011
      • Joined: March 1, 2008
In July I completed nine surveys for 505 points ($25.25). Apparently, my account was disabled briefly for “speeding through surveys”, so I contacted customer support and they promptly restored it. It may be a good idea to work on two surveys at a time so that you do not finish one survey too quickly; otherwise, the company may think you are not being thoughtful enough. Here is the check I received from my last payment from GlobalTestMarket.
    1. MySurvey
      • Total Earned Since Joining: $770
      • Total Earned This Month: $15.50
      • Last Payment Received: $15 PayPal on August 23, 2011
      • Joined: February 2, 2008
In July I completed 14 surveys for 1705 points ($15.50). I currently have 820 points ($7.46). This survey site is vastly better when the free test products are considered.
    1. Toluna
      • Total Earned Since Joining: $707
      • Total Earned This Month: $20
      • Last Payment Received: $20 check on August 26, 2011
      • Joined: February 11, 2008
I currently have 33,908 points ($11.30). This site requires the most amount of time and effort relative to my earnings. I am skipping all of the surveys for 1200 points ($0.30) and 1800 points ($0.60). Here is the check I received from my last payment from Toluna.
    1. SurveySpot
      • Total Earned Since Joining: $697
      • Total Earned This Month: $8
      • Last Payment Received: $50 PayPal on June 14, 2011
      • Joined: January 30, 2008
In July I completed only two surveys for 800 points ($8). I currently have 2900 points ($29). SurveySpot has fallen off dramatically for me this year.

In July I completed five surveys for $10.50. I currently have $19.85 in rewards with $12 pending. I am no longer doing surveys for $1 or less unless I have time, which I usually don’t.

The average survey on MyView is worth about 40 cents and none of them take less than 10 minutes to complete. I currently have 31,925 points ($18.24). I’m no longer bothering with the 350-point ($0.30) and 500-point ($0.45) surveys.

Survey Savvy does not give you a convenient way to track your surveys completed. I have been waiting since May 9, 2011 for a $30 check. Do you have a list of favorite survey panels? Please leave a comment below and let us know some of the survey panels that work best for you.

    Sometimes they are credited right away and other times they aren't credited at all. Checks take 12 weeks to arrive. I often think that sites without an online survey history are less reliable about posting incentives than those that do.

    How long does it take survey savvy to post completed surveys to your account. I've just started with them and have done surveys but nothing is showing in the account area. Thanks, Kim
