Reviews – Legit or Scam?
from 20 reviews Review It


With companies spending millions of dollars each year on market research, it’s no surprise that people have made make money taking surveys one of the most searched for work at home opportunities.

Most major corporations, like McDonald’s and Starbucks, pay professional market research companies to gather all their information for them. is not a professional market research company.  Instead, it is simply a portal website that brings you to a variety of market research companies that are looking for people in the demographic you represent.

Since Survey Say simply matches you to other, certified market research companies, there is no way to predict how you will be compensated for the surveys you complete.  Some companies require you to create a PayPal account, and you are paid with actual cash deposits into that account.

Other companies reward you with gift cards, prizes, or cash rewards that are different depending on the time of year or type of surveys you are taking.  One thing to always keep in mind when looking at a survey company is that before you are given any compensation, you must either complete a certain number of surveys or reach a certain dollar amount in your account before you can receive any rewards.  You need to make sure this number is a reasonable amount, otherwise you may end up doing lots of work without any compensation at all.

So is a Scam?

Not at all.  The number one concern about any online survey company is whether or not the website is asking you to pay money in order to be a member, or to get access to the surveys.  The reality is that any legitimate paid survey company should always be 100% free for you.

Survey Say is not only completely free to join, they also guarantee that all the survey companies they set you up with will be free to join as well.  They promise that you will not only never pay a fee, you also never be asked to buy any products in order to take part in their market research.

Also, is very clear about explaining to their participants that taking online surveys is not a way to “get rich.”  Instead, it’s simply an opportunity to make some extra money each month.  Few companies, even honest, legitimate companies, actually say this on their homepage, even though everyone who is familiar with the paid survey industry already knows this to be true.

Finally, Survey Say also makes a point of telling their members to sign up with as many survey companies as possible, because no one single company will be able to provide you with enough surveys to be worth your time an effort.  Therefore, working with multiple companies is really the best way to make money taking surveys.

    I got sucked into this a few days ago, and every time I tried to answer a survey, it just daisy-chained off to yet another site, which repeated the same process. I mean, that was the “survey” – filling out a registration for yet another “survey” site. It did eventually land on one that sounded like it might be legitimate, but I’m not going to mention the name until I research it better than I did this POS.

    I realized I’d been completely had when I started seeing email from all kinds of sites and businesses (probably spoofed) that I know I hadn’t come across or approved receiving contacts from. Thankfully I used an email address that I don’t normally use for anything else so my main account hasn’t been contaminated, but I now need to try to clean it out – which usually just generates more spam .

    Feeling really stupid…

    I don’t even qualify for their surveys, they ask these daft questions like:

    “Do you ever cook in the bathroom?”

    “How often do you mail a watermelon?”

    and no matter what answer I pick I never qualify, it’s stupid!

    I got disqualified simply for living in NJ on 5 of them after I answered ten Questions.

    What ever you pick, you don’t qualify. Simple as that. Sometimes it’ll say your accepted and make you do the survey but nothing. Also, when they say the 10 minutes of “qualification questions” you filled out will not be used, they will. That was the survey. They just deny youjust so you think you shouldn’t get money, but you should. That’s why I hope that there will be a company that has surveys that can’t deny you.

    I.know. says:
    July 27th, 2015 at 12:33 pm

    It’s not stupid. They ask these questions to see if you are actually reading the questions and responding with useable information or just clicking answers to get the points or money. I will agree sometimes it is impossible to qualify for surveys. Sometimes they are looking for a very specific criteria. But the fielder questions that seem stupid are just to see if you are paying attention to what you are reading. Otherwise the responses they receive are completely useless.

    I’ve been signed up for over a week and received not on survey offer or copy and paste offer. They are completely bogus and don’t even offer an unsubscribe like most reputable people. What a total scam. Don’t waste your time people, if your smart enough to read the reviews, before you sign up. This will earn you nothing.

    Survey say is a scam and a waste of time. I have taken hundreds of surveys on this sight and have never been rewarded. You will start a survey for pay,you will answer hundreds of questions over long periods of time up to an hour only to be deemed not qualified for the survey. This will happen over and over again resulting in the answering of thousands of survey questions but never being qualified for the rewards.

    It is always good to check out a business with the Better Business Bureau. Their website is I did not find any information about them on the Better Business Bureau’s website. This does sound like a scam. I would not try it! If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Use your best judgment when trying out companies that you do not know and are not located in your area. Stick with people, who you know and trust!

    BBB certification is bogus as well. I’ve dealt with some companies who have an A rating with 20+ complaints. If you pay, you too can have a good rating with the BBB.

    Just because a company isn’t BBB certified doesn’t mean it’s a scam. There are a lot of legit and successful businesses who are not part of the BBB rating system.

    None of these are for real. They are all scams. You have seen the pop ups on certain sites. They ask you if you will participate in a survey. Why would they pay you when they can get it for free? Companies have their own research and development teams. It’s just a way to add you on their marketing list so they can sell the list. There is no real pay for taking survey. You would have a better chance at making money with a lemonade stand.


    I.know. says:
    July 27th, 2015 at 12:38 pm

    No they actually aren’t. I am a member of several survey sites and I do get paid. I am not a member of this particular site but there are survey sites that do pay. You won’t get rich, and are told this upfront, but you can make a little extra money. If I make $50 on one site alone taking surveys then that is def worth my time.

    As for the mystery shipping companies, in my opinion they are all scams.

    Don’t even start filling out the form or you’ll get loads of junk mail and email. If you want to make money taking surveys reach out to one of the many mystery shopping companies, they are for real.

    I don’t have first-hand knowledge of these but I am very suspicious. 1. If they ask for a credit card number decline they can charge for services against your card 2. If they ask for a phone number decline they can charge for services against your phone number 3. If they are elusive about their answers to your questions decline. 4. If you have to download software, it may contain a trojan or keylogger to get your credit card and password information. AH, heck! Decline anyway.

    After I completed the survey and spent the whole hour on it, this is what it said:

    Thank you for your interest in participating in our surveys. Unfortunately we are unable to record your participation in this survey due to one or more of the following reasons: 1.You or someone else using the same computer has already participated in this survey.
    2.The country under which you are registered does not match the location of the computer you are currently using.
    3.Sometimes, if interviews are rushed through they can’t be used and you may not be eligible for the survey reward.
    4.Our security system detected that someone using this computer engaged in irregular activity.

    That’s great, I just wasted an hour of my time!

    This review is from December 18 2012, and surveysay is a complete waste of time. You may have to complete about 40 hours of surveys to make $30 at the very most if you’re lucky and even qualify for some of the surveys. Mostly women 18-30 qualify for most of the surveys, and it seems to be better if you have a child or two. Some companies DO require that you PAY for something in order to give an honest review, you then either get a credit for it get your money back basically, or a very very very small profit, and when I say small, I mean like 50 cents profit. It is totally not worth the time and effort. Only someone who is living on the streets and living out of a box would benefit, and even then because of how long it takes, I doubt even a bum would be satisfied. Surveysay is NO-GO!

    I call BS as well. I have a site or two I use and can make up to $50 in a month on one of them but close to $400 is bogus. Most sites if you can make $10 in a couple of months you are doing well.

    I ALSO would like the name of the company you are working for! I don’t want to say you are not correct….prove us all wrong and give us the name of the company.

    Most of these survey companies are a scam in this way……they ask you to fill out a “qualifying” questionnaire to see if you are eligible for the survey….BUT… never are! The information you gave them on the questionnaire WAS the survey. They got all the information they were looking for and never had to pay you a dime.

    I have looked at these reviews and the companies’ profile. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is! I’m old fashioned and I go with my gut. I almost signed up for this, but my ‘gut’ told me to look into it further before doing so. Sounds like you have to put money into it after all. Everyone has to make their own decisions in life and my choice is to NOT apply.

    It is not exactly FREE as the article states. Although does not charge a fee, one of their affiliates, say for instance a major company selling their goods, may require you to PURCHASE their product, and THEN you fill out their survey. Perhaps, you will then get a coupon good only towards purchasing their product, or some other company’s product – by SPENDING YOUR MONEY.

    So, I don’t believe you really make any money. If you are into couponing and want to spend money on a product, and then qualify for perhaps a coupon from that company at a later date, then by all means – go for it.

    All I got from was a bunch of emails from a zillion other survey companies wanting you to fill out as much info as possible, and then they probably sold that info because I got more emails from other survey takers, and so on and so on. Reminder: create an email address solely for survey takers that you can delete later when you tire of them.

    So far, just a couple from actual companies that wanted me to purchase their goods (expensive), no survey attached.

    Just spam – spam from well known companies – that’s all.

    Would be better for you to choose your own companies, register with them and then receive emails directly from them, instead of a bunch of survey takers.
