Paid Surveys

Okay, so I signed up for a few survey sites and I thought, " well, finally something that is going to pay me to work from home." Boy was I shocked. These survey sites seemed fun and rewarding at first. I slowly found out that they don't do what they claimed. One survey site had me do a survey about grocery shopping. The survey was easy to do. When it came time for my payment, it asked me to complete 2 silver offers and 3 gold offers and I had to use my credit card. That was the only way they would pay me and then they wanted to pay me via a gift card. Bells started sounding off in my head. So, I checked out as many survey sites as I could and found that they are all the same. They don't pay you real cash. Most of them enter you in contests and hopefully you will win it but, that doesn't happen.

I want to warn everyone who wants to work at home doing surveys. It's not worth your precious time and trouble. These sites have you online all day and you still accomplish nothing. Survey sites are not going to pay you really, they just want to get rich off of you. Don't be fooled by these so called paid survey sites because they are going to scam you. It's been 5 years since I completed surveys for the sites I joined and I still haven't received my payments, gift cards that is.

If you really want to work at home then, I suggest doing searches for companies that hire telecommuters and telecommute friendly companies. There are some out there that will let you work from home and these companies are legitimate. Paid survey sites are not legit. Believe me, I learned the hard way. I will never join another survey site as long as I live. Some of them require a " one time " fee just to join. You should not have to pay a company just to work for them, they are supposed to pay you for your hard work and time.

Some people may tell you that I'm wrong and there are some legit survey sites that you can work for but I haven't found any. If you do find one, then, congrats to you and I will check them out for myself but, trust me, there aren't any legit ones out there on the world wide super highway we know as the internet. So, take my warning to heart and think carefully before you join any survey site. It may just save your bank account!
