Surveys4Checks Reviews – Legit or Scam?


Surveys4ChecksSarah Garringer and her website are a relatively new addition to an old and well loved area of the work at home arena – taking surveys online for money.

On the Surveys 4 Checks site, Sarah explains that major corporations like Coca-Cola, Starbucks, and McDonald’s spend billions of dollars to “get your opinion.” For a one time only fee of $49.99, she’ll send you a list of top rated companies to get surveys from, as well as giving you tips and support for figuring out how to make the most money possible from survey taking.

In fact, major corporations do pay billions of dollars to market research companies to figure out what consumers want, and one of the ways these research companies get this information is by paying people to take surveys.  But the truth is that making money taking online surveys is not as straightforward as Surveys4Checks makes it seem.

First, works very hard to make it seem as though the only thing you need to make $40,000+ a year taking surveys is the time and effort you’re willing to put in.  This simply isn’t the case.

These surveys are used to gather information on a very specific market. For instance, Starbucks might want a survey done on males ages 16-20 who drink energy drinks on a regular basis but aren’t currently coffee drinkers.  If you’re a 30 year old stay at home mom, it doesn’t matter how many Red Bulls you drink or how much time and effort you would be willing to put in on that survey – you won’t qualify.

So is Surveys 4 Checks a Scam?

While there have been some complaints about their customer service and reported difficulty in trying to get a refund, the reality is is a scam simply because they are charging a fee for a service that is completely free.  Reputable market research companies benefit greatly from having large pools of people to whom they can send these surveys, so they allow people to sign up for free.

Also, Surveys4Checks makes claims and offers stories of people quitting their day jobs because they can replace their yearly salary with the money they make taking surveys.  Unfortunately, this simply isn’t true.  Many people make extra money by taking surveys, as much as a couple hundred dollars a month, but if anyone has been able to translate this opportunity into more money that that, I haven’t seen it yet.

But if you are interested in making extra money by taking online surveys, then a great place to start is with our vetted list of market research companies. They’re all free to join and have paid out cash rewards to their members; take a look at our Free Online Surveys List.

    The only one who gets the benefit from the site is the site owner him/herself.

    GREAT review, thanks a lot for helping me out to prevent my money be taken out.

    Does anyone know who is the site owner? We can sue him for this SCAM crime.

    My friend introduced me to this website to see if I can get some extra money from it. But when I saw they wanted money first and then they would send something to you to start the money thing, I thought there should be something wrong with it. I googled servy4checks and saw a lot of complaints and so many victims who wanted their money back but didn’t know how. Please be caucious and go BBB to check before you take part in any online money thing like this…

    scam. went on many sites to see they pay nothing. went on surveys4checks and $50 later it was the same sites. the first time i got them for free. they promise $25 per survey, more like $0.25 per. yes it is a scam i have demanded my money back if they do not pay reported to the internet for faulse advertising and then they will pay. if anyone else got scammed by them lets stick together and have them sued for what they do. thanks

    I agree, I was a victim and I have been trying for over a month to get a refund. If anyone can tell me how to get my refund, please let me know. I will continue to bombard them with e-mails until I receive my refund.

    Yes, I agree. The customer service is not as excellent as one of the member claimed in their website. To be very honest, I don’t hear anything from them after sending them several emails to request user ID and my password. So to those of you who might be interested, please consider it wisely. I’m very disappointed with their service.

    I totally agree! I, for one, have signed in and made a payment using a credit card. Up until NOW, MY GOD I haven’t received any emails from them.

    PLEASE BE CAUTIOUS OF ONLINE INCOME – SCAM especially those that get payments from you cause most likely they are SUSPICIOUS!
