Posted on by

Here is my Top Five Survey list for the month of September 2011. This month I decided to include the actual recent checks I received from several of the survey panels from my top 5: Opinion Outpost, GlobalTestMarket, and Toluna.My Current Top Five Paid Surveys List (September 2011)

In September I completed 33 surveys for 446 points ($44.60). I currently have 310 points ($31) credited. I am concerned with the increasing ratio of 10-point ($1) surveys to others. Last month 23 of the 33 surveys I completed were for 10 points ($1) or less.

      Lightspeed merged with MySurvey several months ago. If you were an exisiting LightSpeed member, your account should have been transfered over to MySurvey. If you are new, and just interested in joining you can learn more about MySurvey and get to a registration link by visiting our MySurvey Review page: http://www.getpaidsurveys.com/mysurvey/

    There are a lot of 10-point surveys, however I just cashed out for $49.80. I will be very curious to see how long it takes to earn another $50.

    Hi Lee,

    Have you had any problems with the new Opinion Outpost. I've noticed the survey link on their website isn't working for me. I'm also having a hard time qualifying for surveys and they all seem to be 10 point ones.

    Thanks. No problem logging in, but I am a little suprised that Opinion Outpost and Survey Spot seem to be merged now.

    Hi Lee-

    Great post as usual. Just curious as to whether you're experiencing log-in difficulties with Opinion Outpost as a result of their new webdesign? I'm interested to see whether this improves on an already IMO excellent set-up.
