MySurvey Reward - Payment

I officially received my reward from MySurvey and I couldn't be happier!

I initially was going to redeem my points at Opinion Square for the OXO 10 Piece POP Container Set but I was a couple hundred points short and I had no more surveys available - ugh. I was so close! I went on as usual with my survey taking and ended up doing one at MySurvey. I realized how many points I had collected there and began to browse the rewards center. Success! They had the same set available! I researched what would be cheaper, an Amazon e-certificate to buy the set or getting the set through MySurvey - I ended up getting it through MySurvey. The conversion from points to money would have only given me $75 to work with at Amazon and the price for the OXO 10 Piece POP Container Set is just under $100. I probably saved $20 or more doing it this way.

Profiles & Screeners - What You Should Know


 (Picture from Survey Savvy)

It is common to here someone say "It seems like I hardly ever receive surveys". I know when I started signing up for a bunch of survey sites I didn't bother going through and doing all the profiles for every survey site. The result, hardly any surveys to participate in. If you aren't getting many surveys it may be that you haven't completed these profiles, which are crucial to receive surveys. If they don't have idea about your lifestyle then how do they know what surveys may be of interest to you?

Screeners, what are they? Screeners are short surveys, usually less than 5 minutes long. These help them understand what activities you are interested in, what foods you like to eat or what brands you use, etc. Screeners are send you are for a reason - to increase your eligibility for surveys or studies. If they know what activities you enjoy from a sceener the more likely they will send you a survey when market research is being done on that particular subject.

You are probably thinking profiles and screeners sure do sound like the same thing. You are partially right, they are similar. However, the reason why you receive these is becuase your profile stated you were interested in that subject. For example: Your profile said you were interested in sports, there is a new survey coming up on sports, sometimes a particular sport. They then send you a screener to see if the sport they are conducting research about is one of your favorites. This helps them target a specific group of people to get the most accurate results possible.

American Consumer Opinion Panel - My Eighth Payment!

I received another payment from American Consumer Opinion Panel this past week. When taking their surveys you are fairly compensated either by points, cash, gifts and even product tests (my favorite!). Although their way of recording incentives is now by points instead of by dollars. Don't worry, points convert equally to cash amounts, 100 points is equal to $1 and when you get 1,000 points ($10) you can cash out via check.

One thing I really like about American Consumer Opinion Panel is that they are international. I have had so many people outside the US and Canada tell me they have such a hard time finding international survey sites. I immediately recommend American Consumer Opinion Panel, not only because they are international but becuase there are so many great aspects of the company. They are BBB certified with an A+ grade - yes an A+, that's amazing! Compensation for surveys/studies/product tests are fair, along with points conversion being great. I have noticed when some survey sites convert to a points system the amount per point decreases compared to the time it takes to participate in a survey. Another thing that makes then a good survey panel is that their members are happy.

Overall I think American Consumer Opinion Panel is one of the top 10 survey panels out there. If you want to see more payment proofs or want to browse through the posts about them head over here!

Survey Savvy - Increase in Surveys


Over the past few months I have noticed quite an increase in surveys from Survey Savvy. Not only that but the compensation for surveys has gotten slightly better as well. Some survey sites give you $0.75-$1 for a 20-30 minute survey. I received a couple from Survey Savvy that were 15-20 and compensated you with  $1-$3.

Also have yo checked out the new look of their website? They went from a plain white background to a steel blue background, also navigation of the site is more user friendly too! I really like the new look and design of the website. The Members section has also improved, everything is in on spot to check or change your address, profiles, earnings and more.

If you haven't joined Survey Savvy I recommend at least giving it a try. If your skeptical if they pay check out my payment proof from them. They are legit and a great survey site to become a member of to share your opinions!

If you are a member what are your thoughts about Survey Savvy? Have you seen an increase or are your survey invitations staying about the same or even decreasing? I'd love to hear others opinions about them and their experiences!
