Lacie, one of my blog followers, brought to my attention U30 (U30 Group), which is a market research firm located in Knoxville Tennessee. U30 mostly conducts product tests for US corporations, surveys although not sent regularly pay between $5 - $15 each.
I took the time to join U30's panel and upon entering the questionnaire I was presented with this little snippet of information:
Are you interested in participating in our panel of consumers needed to give their advice to major corporations?
Pat yourself on the back. We've got lots of great projects coming up and we wanted to get you signed up!
THINK ABOUT IT...Earn $15 for online questionnaires that take 15 minutes to complete. It's true, that's a buck a minute.
THINK ABOUT IT...Rant and rave on products and advertising from companies like Pizza Hut, Pepsi, Taco Bell, Frito Lay, Wrigley, and YM Magazine. Let the suits know what people like you think. You know as well as we do, they need you. Don't let this opportunity slip away!
Sound too good to be true? Let's set the record straight; we believe in free speech not free responses. Meaning: you ALWAYS get paid for your opinions.

The questionnaire took about 15 minutes to complete which isn't as bad as some of the questionnaires I have had to complete to join a survey panel. They ask the basic stuff, age, gender, martial status, along with drinks you consume, restaurants you eat at, and stores you regularly visit. At the end of the questionnaire:
Now was that so hard? Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions! Look for project opportunities and surveys in your email soon.

We will see what comes out of joining this survey panel.
