    If you're seriously asking us how to lie and be dishonest just to make a few cents, you'll probably want to think about doing something online besides surveys. Dishonest /inaccurate results are probably one of the reasons the rest of us have to jump through hoops to prove we're sincere.

    Someone on /r/beermoney recommended this app to me a few months back, called Hatch - it's actually by C-Space, who are also responsible for the best-paying, awesomest private survey community of the handful I'm a part of, so it's not too surprising that this app also pays well for your time. It is surprising that it's so completely flown under the radar, so I was wondering if anyone else here uses it, and to people who don't, to recommend it. You don't get surveys from it very often, and it never proactively informs you of them, you have to check it periodically - but when you do snag one, it's super worth it. Like Pinecone, they periodically invite you to complete short (couple minute) surveys for no pay, but then use your responses, if you qualify for what they're looking for, to invite you to surveys that are still pretty short, often interesting, and pay pretty nicely - the least I've gotten is $3, the most I've gotten is $10, and their surveys aren't that long (though, oddly, for an app-only site, they do often include some writing - I don't mind as much, because I completely refuse to give up my Photon Q, the last-ever Android phone with a proper keyboard - otherwise I'd probably be more irritated. But I'd be irritated all over the place, which is why I refuse to give it up. :p) The really nice thing about it, too, is they clearly read all our responses, and if they like your response, I learned, they will pay extra - I've gotten $5 bonuses on top of the $5 original pay, twice now, in the few months since I started using it. They only pay in Amazon, and it takes a few weeks to get paid, because they process everything manually (though according to the site, they're working on getting payment more automated, but who knows when that's going to happen, if ever). Still, I'd highly recommend it, so I figure I would... actually highly recommend it.

    I'd say the best answers for each question would be the truth.

    i dont post one here much... but i thought i would let everybody know i received a survey thru mintvine.. 45cents for 30 mins.. when i clicked on it... it was a qualtrics survey ( spell check )... anyway.. it included a message from the person sending out the survey.. name , email, phone number etc.. so i emailed her and told her that.. although i would love to take the survey.. mintvine is only paying out 45 cents and do you think this is fair... would you take a survey for 45 cents.. this is her response copy and pasted below... Thank you so much for your email regarding your compensation. I really appreciate you taking the time to complete my survey. I contacted Qualtrics about the very low rate of compensation you brought to my attention and I want you to know that this was not the amount that you were supposed to receive. Forty five cents for a 30 minutes survey is indeed unfairly low. They are looking into the matter as we speak and will follow up with you for a resolution shortly. Thank you again for the important role you have played in my research and I hope you have a wonderful day. Respectfully, Katherine White right after that mintvine closed out the survey.. right as i was taking it ( go figure ) .... tired of these sites thinking they can get over... sometimes it pays to find out who is actually sponsoring the survey and let them know whats going on..

    I have about 5 survey companies nearing cashout and now receiving no surveys. Do you have the same experience? . If we do not receive surveys after 1 year we should be able to cash out and unsubscribe although cashout not reached. They have my work for zero reward. .

    I was taking a survey about hair care and a page said "sorry, you don't qualify to complete this survey but we still want to ask you questions about your hair." I exited out without answering the extra questions, I didn't care about the dq points, it was the principle. At least they were honest, most surveys just keep asking questions after you dq without notifying you.

    You guys do realize that you are basically asking to be hacked by giving a company the ability to monitor everything you do on the internet, right? I know several ITs who will tell you the same thing. Every time you log into your bank account online, it is very possibly your password can be hacked. You could argue and say "Well, it's a legit company". But, do you actually trust EVERY single person behind the scenes working for that company who has access and sees everything you do and type online? Not smart at all. Yes, I was also offered a good paying opportunity to do this same thing through Neilson, but I declined. They still promised me $5 just for taking the poll saying that I'm not interested. So, I'm sure the pay is decent.....but at the threat of identity theft or bank account hacking is not worth it.

    I assume the main goal of survey companies is to get people to do their surveys so they can get paid by the companies who hire them. We all complain as survey payments are cut but it continues to get worse. Who is still doing these 20 minute surveys that pay $1 or less? There must be people doing them or the companies would have to increase payments. Either that or these survey companies are scamming their clients to the same degree they are cheating us.

    Best answers are the honest ones- you never know when they are going to ask you the same question twice.

    I don't usually pay attention to the star rating. I read the actual reviews and see if the company sounds like one that is worth my time or not. I also only pay attention to recent reviews. We have the ability to edit our reviews so it's partially on us to make sure we are keeping the ratings current. Just my two cents

    When I see this on a 50 cent or less survey I get angry but then smile as I respond with a word or two and write, this is your 15 cents worth. What level of quality do these companies expect when the pay a pittance?

    Over all the years I have belonged to My Survey , I have done both beverage and snack diaries along with one on personal grooming iitems. Haven't seen the snack one in a couple years now , but the beverage one has been coming up quite regularly. The diaries had always worked perfectly until about a year ago. Now any of the following may happen: - it completes normally and points are awarded - it completes , but ends with an error screen after submitting (they have given the points in those cases) - you get screened out after a few days for no reason (there are no wrong answers possible) The latest quirk in the one I'm doing now is that the option to save repeat items is only saving the title you give it without the details , meaning you have to enter all of the details for everything each day. They definitely need to look at the programming on these!!

    I find this question to be silly on their part.If your trying to trip people up and find if they are on the up and up then why give them the heads up?

    I don't know about yall, but ive about had it doing these things. I used to have a pretty good amount of fun doing them, but not now. im just tired of the gipping, the lying, the lower payouts, well, just about every thing under the sun now. im burned out to put it mildly. im on disability and it helped me a lot doing these surveys, but the stress is getting to be too much dealing with all the problems and the emailing that are cropping up all the time now. how I long for the good ole days a few years back. SIGH!!!!

    I was doing a survey for them and accidentally exited out after a few questions.So I reopened and started doing it again it asked me what I liked about the product .I answered it's chewy good with a soft center that taste just like cereal.Then they ask what I don't like, I said probably to many carbs and sugar.Then I realized I was doing a dog treat survey and not for the new frozen treat for people.Oh my lord this is what I get for doing 2 surveys at once.Gosh I hope it doesn't get me kicked off the panel...........

    I was on a survey site tonight and I was taking a 15 minute survey. It reminded me of one of the Yougov ones but it wasn't one of theirs. After 25 minutes I was answering questions left and right and then hit submit and BAM! They have enough responses. I know this is usual and it happens to me all the time. But dang!! 25 minutes!!! And nothing!! Thanks for listening. I am done now. I am still mad though. Maybe I should turn on the air conditioner, it might help.
