Out of interest what is your opinion on these sites which give you money etc... for surveys, downloading apps etc...?

 

I've been a member at one called POints2Shop.com for erm... 2 or 3 years now and despite the points coming in slowly (and money) due to me being too busy, I've managed to snag about £70 of bits n bobs off of amazon.

 

I think if someone, like a housewife, people which don't work or the generally bored people should take a peek as it's a good way to get little tidbits or money (or items in):

 

IF you need to, take a look here: Points2Shop.com

 

Some of the offers are 'paid for', say if you buy a Weigh[EDIT - PLEASE REFRAIN FROM PERSONAL ABUSE]chers subscription or um, but a game or a mobile app, but you don't ahve to pay a bean really :)

 

ANyway, yuour feedback would be great!

I spend a lot of my spare time doing online surveys. I either get rewarded by cheque (in the post), direct bank transfer, Paypal or Amazon vouchers.

 

I accrue on average about £800 per year (which comes in real handy for Xmas. Some surveys only take a minute or 2 but you still get the same reward as you would for a half hour survey.

 

My favourite sites are as follows:-

 

Global Testmarket

Valued Opinions

My Survey Panel

Ipsos Mouri

Survey Head

Toluna

Zoom Panel

 

There are a few more I am a member of, and I will post them as I remember.

 

My tip would be to ignore survey invites where it tells you the survey will last approximately half an hour, and you only get rewarded a few points or a small amount of cash. They don't get upset for survey's you don't complete, it's entirely your choice. All survey's are sent to your email address, and you decide when you want to take them.


 

 

If all else fails, kick them where it hurts and SOD'EM;)

If I owe you money, take a number and join the queue. If you owe me money pay up and shut up

Valued Opinions

 

I am doing some jobsearch on Totalyobs and I've just found this Valued Opinions advert:

http://www.totaljobs.com/JobSearch/JobDetails.aspx?JobId=56784773

 

I am not sure if they should even advertise this as as a paid job, but can anybody positively confirm that Valued Opinions are not some sort of s.cam?

 

I do a lot of shopping on Amazon, I wouldn't mind some Amazon vouchers, but is it safe?

 

As I am in receipt of JSA, would I have to declare this to the DWP?

Anything like that advertised as a genuine job is a pure [problem]. We even see them in normal job centres now, although they get removed shortly after being reported.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

valued opinions sends out quite a few surveys and you get about £1 a time. They don't take very long and pay in all sorts of vouchers, M&S, Amazon, etc.

 

Populus Live pay quite well and do political ones which can be fun. Some of them ask what you would like to say to David Cameron ....:lol:

I have had roughly £200 per year (over the last 3 years) in Amazon vouchers. Each survey pays between £0.25 and £1.50. Sometimes you can get £1.50 for a 5 minute survey. But sometime you get £0.25 for a 40 minute survey. Either way, they are genuine :)

Do they credit the vouchers on your Amazon account or do they send vouchers by post, or how does it work exactly?

Yes, I know, I was only wondering if it was a reputable business.

Nextar do surveys. Also, if you use Firefox, (and a few other browsers, I think) you can add a nectar search bar. For every 2 searches, you can get 1 nectar point up to 100 points a month.

I have just registered to Valued Opinions. They sent me a long survey to fill. They promised £3 as a reward. After spending 10 minutes to fill all the answers I was told I would get the damned £3 only after downloading and installing an Android app, which I haven't done, so I'm not getting the money but they have got the info they wanted. It looks a bit like a s.cam to me. Not a very good start.

I've never had to download an app. This must be new. I get emails to my inbox and just click on the link.

 

I've never had any problems with them. I've probably had about £50 so far in John Lewis/Waitrose vouchers which you can download and print off yourself, or they will send paper vouchers in the post.

Apart from the initial reward of 50p, all other surveys ended up in "We have already enough participants" or the sites are blocked by Firefox built in antispyware.
