Paid Surveys - Make A Little Cash

A few years ago while playing on my computer - that's a big surprise - I clicked on a free survey to win an IPOD - from that survey I clicked on more paid surveys and before I knew it - I became a paid survey queen... It does take organizational skills and a little upfront money... This is how it usually happens..

  • You are asked to try a product - you pay the shipping - you must return the product before the deadline and then you get paid for trying the product... You can keep the product if you like and you will get paid for trying it out - but you do pay the cost of the product....
  • You need to keep good records of what you paid for shipping and you MUST return the product in time... VERY IMPORTANT..
  • This can be time consuming but it's a good way to earn a little extra cash - especially for stay at home moms.. I was very excited to receive a check for over $500 no kidding people - it took about six (6) weeks to get it but I did receive it - after deducting what I paid for shipping and small fees a long the way - I netted $437.28.
  • I believe the reason the surveys are there is because MOST people either keep the product because they like it... or they forget to return it... or are just too lazy to follow up - of course this is what the companies are hoping for...
  • Many of the items are trials with the first month - free.. Be sure to cancel in time!
  • Doing surveys led me to becoming a Secret Shopper - this has been fun.... One day my husband and I went to the Long Beach Aquarium on a shop and got paid to go and to eat... We had a good time - all I had to do is write a small blurb about my experience and answer a few questions... easy breezy.... we also enjoyed several mini golf places with the kids for free.. I also was paid to try out different restaurants.. yummy. A free meal with the family.. nice There are many kinds of shops - I just chose to respond to the fun activities...
Below are a few links to paid survey sites - while navigating through the sites you will come across other sites - it becomes a Pandora's Box.. but like I said - if you are a SAHM and you have the time (many don't) it can be a small way to earn a little cash... So have fun and get back to me and let me know how it goes..
