I'm obviously sorry that it's not working out for you but am also feeling vindicated that I haven't bothered with them for the very same reasons as you. All seem to be timewasters, etc.

Thumbs down Re: Making money from doing online surveys

Online surveys are hard to manage, take time to fill out, and often bring you nothing but more prying into your life.
There are some good ones out there, but the fact that they pay so little means that you are really wasting your time.
Like most money matters online, make them a small part of what you do, rather than a needless time swallower...

I've heard that survey's are not worth the time. Mainly because you don't get a lot of money for the time it takes to fill them out. I've also heard that most of them pay with prizes and chances to win things. If you could find one that would pay you with things you need it would be worth the time.

I always find with these things they don't pay you (at best they're very late) or they close down after a few months, so be careful not to waste your time

I used to use an American company, 'American Consumer Survey' or something like that and you can convert your points to Amazon vouchers. It's hardly lucrative but if you have free time then it might be worth signing up, but I think there are far more time efficient ways of making money than this in all honesty!

Thanks for the links. I have found 2 more survey panels that you can join.
1. Opinion Outpost UK
2. Valued Opinions UK

These are free to join and I have been paid by them.

Cheers!
Bob

I have tried a range of online surveys in the past but now believe the return in 's on the time you have to invest is too low. There are far more better that take an equal amount of time but in the long run will provide you a greater return.
Some examples are:
Setting up your own blog, dropshipping, carboot sales and craft fairs, ebay, setting up your own website store... the list is endless. It has taken me over 3 months to do but I have now successfully setup my own drop shipping company. See ways-to-make-money.co.uk/drop_shipping_23.html
for an explanation of dropshipping and how to make money from it.
Good Luck
