$85 paid survey – please read!

We posted yesterday about an $85 paid online study through USA Talk Now and I wanted to address some questions about the study.

1) I did not see your blog post about the $85 paid study until now. Is it too late to sign up / how do I sign up? No – sometimes studies are postponed or participants are recruited at a later date than originally planned. I would advise you sign up ASAP! You can sign up for USA Talk Now here

2) Where do I find the invitation to the study? If you are selected, you will receive an email about the study. Check your BULK or JUNK mail folders too!

3) I signed up but didn’t receive an invitation yet. What did I do wrong? Nothing! Not everyone gets invited to all studies. Sometimes participants are chosen based on their demographics, and sometimes participants are randomly chosen. The fact that you are registered now will ensure you are in the database when future participants are chosen.

USA Talk Now offers occasional high dollar surveys / online studies / focus groups, so make sure you sign up now so you can be considered for future high dollar studies!

Get PAID to be in an exclusive online community!

Get paid to be in an exclusive online community: I just got an email about an exclusive paid online community from Survey Savvy. This online community is hosted by a fast food restaurant, and they will pay you to be a part of it! I was accepted, and I’m sooooo excited because this is one of my family’s favorite restaurants! My 2 year old loves it!!! (Sorry, I can’t give the restaurant name due to privacy reasons.) So check your survey email account!!! The invitation from Survey Savvy is titled “A Unique Opportunity from (L2232).”

If you haven’t signed up for Survey Savvy yet, sign up ASAP and then check your email in the next few days for this opportunity. If you are already a member of SurveySavvy, look for “unique opportunity L2232″. You can sign up for Survey Savvy here.

Survey Savvy
I have received invitations like this from Survey Savvy (and other paid survey sites) before and have personally been accepted into some of these exclusive communities. Here’s a brief overview of how it works: You log into the exclusive community website a couple times a month (or sometimes each week) and post your opinions on specific questions or take brief surveys. Then the exclusive community pays you directly each month, either by check / paypal, or via free gift cards (usually Amazon gift cards).

You can easily make an extra $10 – $50 a month if you are accepted into some of these exclusive communities on paid survey sites. The topics of these communities are varied, and are often about things like household products, automobiles, or technology products.

—>If you’re new to paid surveys, another great site is Surveyhead. You get $5 free just for signing up!

Which survey sites are legitimate?

Which survey sites are legitimate? This is a question I hear a lot, and used to wonder myself! We get more questions from readers about paid survey sites / which survey sites are legitimate, than about any other topic, so I wanted to take a few minutes to answer a reader question we recently received.

Reader question from Malena: I keep reading about online surveys, but I’m really scared of them. I don’t want to get taken for a ride – I’m afraid of having my identity stolen. How do I know which ones are reputable? Do I have to provide my social security number? We’re really financially strapped right now, since my husband took a 50% pay cut almost two years ago, I just had a 3% pay cut and it soon goes to 4%, my daughter started college this year (with no scholarships, and we’re too wealthy for grants, apparently!). I’m looking for part time work to supplement, but no luck yet. I’m open to any ideas.

Thank you for sharing every day. Debt is driving us crazy, but we’re in a cycle now, because of the income issues. I appreciate all of your help that you offer for free every day!!

The questions and concerns Malena expresses are something all of us are concerned about. I have been personally taking online surveys from paid survey sites since 2000, so I want to share my knowledge with all of you. I have developed a list of paid survey sites that I personally use and/or have been paid by. I only include reputable companies that I have personally dealt with. There are a few sites that may require your Social Security Number. Why? If you make $600 or more in a year from a particular survey site, you will have to pay taxes on your earnings. I am not a tax professional, so please consult an accountant or tax professional for more details. For the sites on our paid survey list, if the companies have requested my social security number, yes, I have provided it. And I have had no problems with any of the companies on our list. MOST of the companies do not ask for this information unless you earn $600 a year from them, and then if they ask you for it, by law, you must give it to them so they can send you appropriate tax forms.

How much money will you make doing paid surveys online? This varies greatly depending on how much time you are willing to put into it. However, if you sign up for all the companies on our paid survey list, (it’s free to sign up and use all the companies on our list) I estimate that just starting out, you can earn $50 – $100 extra each month, and more than that if you are willing to devote more than a few hours a week to taking surveys. The more companies you sign up for, the more money you will make. Also, the longer you take paid surveys, the more paid survey opportunities you can get.

Many people are skeptical about paid survey sites and think all sites are scams. I can personally tell you this is not true. I have made lots of money since 2000 from doing paid surveys online. Check out our proof of payment checks for the survey companies in our list. Taking paid surveys is not a way to get rich quickly. But the paid survey sites have helped us have a nice “padding” of extra income each month, and help me to be able to stay home and raise our children, which is priceless.

So with the new year here, let 2010 be the year YOU start earning some extra money from the legitimate paid surveys out there! At the end of the year, you will have a nice little sum to help you buy presents or pay off bills! Check out our BIG LIST OF PAID SURVEY SITES
