Hi, I was just wondering if this really works where you earn money for taking surveys and play games. I’m a stay at home mom and I’m having a hard time finding a job and money is tight so I need to find a way to earn money.So I just want to know if this really works.. Thank you for your time..Have a great day!! :)

Dee, I too was leary about the surveys when I started but have been doing them about 5 years. Not getting rich but little extras here and there. they can take a long time to get enough surveys to make it wourth your time but they add up. some are always cash and others are points to redeem. What I have found about redeeming is to get something that doesn’t require electronics or anything that might have a return guarantee. Gift cards are good, if the stores you shop at are included. they don’t give you much info about the products so unless it is something like a book or dvd, you may be suprised by the item. Sometimes they substitute as well. if you want more info regarding the programs I am on, let me know. Put something in your subject relevant to the topic or I will think it is spam and ignore it.

I’m new to developing internet sites and I was wanting to know if having your website title related to your articles and other content really that important? I notice your title, “Paid Surveys ” does appear to be spot on with what your website is about however, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of help would be greatly valued.

Great way to make a little extra cash or get tginhs from My daughter-in-law told me about it. It is a little disappointing, answering questions and then being told you don’t quailify, but still worth a few minutes of your time. What do you have to lose? I have had a problem or two with the program. BUT sent them an email and problem was resolved in less than 24 hrs. I have made about$50 since Dec. I haven’t taken all the surveys they offered me, due to time. The more you take the more you qualify for.

Opinion Outpost–be careful of this one. I was doing surveys with them for several years with no problems. I would get the cash and a few times I opted for a game download. Then one day I stopped getting surveys. I tried to check my account but couldn’t. called the company and after several calls or emails I discovered someone had hacked into my account, cashed out my earnings (more than $170) and closed my account! I am still trying to get this resolved (since May 2012). The company acknowledges that this has happenend to others but right now they are still “investigating” and say they will reinstate me but I am still waiting!!! has this happened to anyone else?
