I was wondering. Has anyone ever participated in the get paid to take surveys? It sounds too good. I would like to make some extra money but stay at home for my family (I already work part time). Any advice out there?

I have participated in focus groups a few times. It was easy money. If you meet their criteria and the timing is convenient for you, you can get paid for giving your opinion. There are a few rules and one is that you can only participate every six months, so you won't make tons of money. The most I have ever made for one session is $75. Once I got there last and they already had all the people they needed, but paid me anyway!

I had signed up for some of those surveys and I quite frankly stopped doing them because they took too much of my time. (online). On the other hand, I did do the get paid to surf the web, and got a $30.00 check for doing it for about a month. Only thing is I had quit doing it because they mailed the check 2 months later and I thought they weren't going to pay me. Oh well, slowed down my surfing anyway! ;)

I have several survey sites that do pay out and check does come fairly quick. You just have to fit the right type for their surveys.

I have participated in focus groups and got paid for giving my opinion from every thing from watching a movie to eating pickles and using condoms as much as $150.00. Look in the paper to find these in your area. UCLA does studies, too.

I have made about $300 in a month by taking online surveys. The secret is you must sign up with every research company you can find. That increases your chances of getting invited to surveys that pay cash. I found a great free site that lists over 400 companies. It's called, it has the biggest list of sites I have ever seen and it's totally free. So if your curious about the whole survey thing I recommend checking this site out.

I have recently done a $40 survey from Adobe on Global Test Market, Received Clamato to taste test and Dockers clothing from bzz agent, and done several $3-$8 surveys from Test Spin, Gozing Surveys, NFO My Survey. I made about $150 last month and could have made more but I didn't take all the surveys I was offered. Thye trick is learning how to work the system and how to figure out what they are looking for so that you can qualify for more surveys. For most of the companies I do not fill out the profile. Seems like I get more offers that way.

Here is a good site for paid survey information:
