    I agree with what was said above. I have been doing surveys on-line since 2007. I have also been tracking my income from panels since then as well. As time goes on I have dropped certain panels and signed up for others. I recently dropped Branded because the income I was making from the panel dropped by over 50% last year. I was also getting accused of rushing, etc. Overall though my income has dropped over time, which I primarily attribute to greed by the market research companies. The reason I stick with it is I like the extra income. I know the panels don't care about us. We are just "data" to them. They need data to sell their product (market research), so because they can't get it for free, they are forced to pay us to get it. But they are constantly trying to minimize payments to us because we are just a business expense. So I expect to get treated poorly because they just don't care. I don't like it, but that is the reality.

    I don't qualify for that many, but between the ones I do qualify for and the points from the daily user-generated surveys, it adds up fast enough to keep me using the site.

    I barely ever qualify for ANY surveys. Does anyone else have this problem?

    My biggest problem over the past several months is the fact that I am getting ripped off more than ever before. More than 10% of all completed surveys by me now lead to a disqualification or non-payment (or that token penny). That only tempts me to cheat on more surveys (like doing a survey you already did for another site). I'd rather not do that, but these companies need to take more responsibility for whatever happens when they sponsor surveys from other sources. Don't waste a person's time. That said, people should always expect holidays and weekends to be slower, and strategize around that.

    Honestly why should any of these companies care how fast we complete a survey as long as we don't just "straightline answers"..I type fast & finish surveys fast...it's just their way of you getting a "dq" & or an "error screen" at the end of a survey since you finish too fast..If we give them honest & legit answers they shouldn't care how fast we do any of their surveys

    This has always been a gray area, but by law, ALL your income (except gifts) are supposed to be reported to the IRS each year. However, if all your survey earnings and income from other sources dont meet the IRS filing requirements, then you do not have to file obviously. (Keep in mind some survey companies title yoir earnings as "gifts" and therefore not required to report those. However, the IRS will only know about your earnings IF a company issues you a 1099 or W2. Therefore, you have close to a 0% chance of getting in trouble for not reporting.

    Wow, it really does seem like YMMV depending on the person. For example, Opinion Outpost and One Opinion screwed me over royally and cancelled my accounts refusing to pay me once I got close to cashing out, even though I did nothing wrong. I would NEVER EVER trust those crooks again. ACOP - I am surprised they are still around. Several years ago, they were taking at least 2 months to pay me via paypal and that was only after numerous emails I sent them. I thought they went out of business. However, Paidviewpoint is the absolute BEST because you never DQ and their surveys are the easiest of all of them. Next to them, I'd say 1Q app is the easiest because they send you 25 cent one question polls randomly to your phone that pays immediately via paypal. I like Pinecone too (but they don't always accept newcomers). Their surveys are a little longer (about 7 min. approx), but pay 300 pts. OR $3.00 paypal for every survey they send. So those are my top 3 easiest ones.

    My demographics have changed since I began doing surveys, my daughter is now an adult, I am older, I don't make the same money, I don't do the same type of work, my vehicle has changed, you get the picture. The companies are always looking for something different. I don't make anywhere near what some of these folks do. I am lucky if I get $25 a month, because most of the time it isn't even that much. You can sign into and try a few sites and keep what find works for you.

    I seldom if ever bother with their site anymore. Most times I am disqualified and if I remember correctly, it was one that sent me off into who knows where when I got booted from their site. No mention of time needed to complete their forwarded-to surveys nor amt of compensation. I'm not that hard up for things to do that I will allow my time to be wasted in such a fashion. I've moved on to newer and higher class sites to screw me over. (That's humor folks!)

    I cashed out on Pinecone for 600 pts ($6.00 paypal) a couple days ago and it still didn't process. This is unusual because they always processed my paypal cashouts on the very next business day. It wont let me contact them either. In fact, it seems Pinecone is now making it nearly impossible to contact them. Whats going on??

    I wasn't sure about Point Club at first, but have grown to like them. The trick is to stay with them, they have 'streak levels' where you level up and get more points per survey though you have to check in once a day to do and maintain that. The staff have been quick to respond to anything I have asked about, and I have made more money with them in the 6-7 months I have been with them than any other site, about $300 Paypal cash at this point. Yeah, the sci-fi / superhero stuff can get a bit much, but at least it's friendly and nicer to look at than some sites. There's some stuff on the site I don't use, such as the links to other sites where do you stuff to win points like download games or such. Maybe it's just me, but I'm happy with the site at this point.

    This looks like another veiled attempt to abscond with earnings and rewards and is par for the dealings with this group "YourSurveys". I stopped having anything to deal with that group or the parent company. Also Branded's reliance on this group is a major consideration why I don't make referrals for branded.

    At the moment, have to say I'm rather ticked off with Point Club. Took a whole survey with them which told me at the end I didn't qualify because I'd taken it before. Maybe so, I don't recall every survey I take, but come on, you do not have a person take a whole freaking survey then tell them that. I complained to the powers that be at Point Club and thus far have got the typical form type replies that don't even address what I'm telling them, so flipping the bird to Point Club at the moment, then chilling with a beer. End rant.

    I made about $240. I work on surveys 4-5 hours a day on average to get that.

    If you mean pages as in the surveys themselves, I'd don't find that any one hosting site has surveys that are easier than any other, and often times they mix so you may encounter the same survey on more than one site if you are members or several. I can give you names of sites I'm a member of, as I'm sure others here could, but not sure that will help you much.
