    I use slicethepie and its easy and profitable. They also do a catwalk section where you review outfits instead of music. The better your review, the more cash you get. Cashout at £10.

  • Ellen Urowitz

    I love this site but CashCrate/4228419
    Is good too

  • juris klavins

    pickydomains is a bit different – you suggest ‘.com’ names for specific clients with websites that need a clever domain name – taken names are quickly screened out, you can submit as many as you wish, the client will review your suggestions and submit yea or nay feedback – it’s hit or miss, but once one of your domain names is accepted and used, you collect a nice ‘royalty’ payment – if you’re creative and cyber-savvy, this might be a good opportunity

  • Andrew King

    Spread it around…PLEASE!!! 😀


  • Rayvin Fair

    I have used inboxdollars.com in the past and it paid but took forever to get enough money for them to pay out. I really think this site is so much better than that. I have been navigating a lot on it right now so I still learning about the site but so far I love it and working out for me just fine.

  • Wanda Encarnacion Harper

    • juris klavins

      Are you referring to Vindale ? – I’ve gotten similar messages from my WOT software, but I’ve been using Vindale without any ill effects for years – maybe some popup ads or erroneous WOT reviews are causing the red alerts.

  • Amy Spate

  • Misty Crain

    Want to find ones that work

  • Erin Myers

    I’m a part of a lot of survey places online and I’ll get passed the first initial survey and after that I don’t qualify for any other ones. I don’t understand how this all works but I sit at my computer for hours doing surveys and I’m getting no where and its frustrating. What am I doing wrong? I answer as honest as possible and don’t qualify and its wasted time to me.

    • Fair4theGander

      Hi Erin, Me too! You’re not the only one the same thing happens to me except for here (Vindale.com). I promise you. I haven’t been paid yet from Vindale because I’ve been kinda lazy lately and not doing any surveys, studies etc. but I still have a balance! I mention still having a balance because years ago when I first joined, the policy was that if you are inactive for said amount of time then your balance would go back to 0.00!! Obviously that policy changed and that just tells you that Vindale is a company that you can really trust. They will pay you what you earn like they say they will.
      Now for all survey sites, often times companies are looking for a target audience like teenagers, gamers, people who work in certain fields etc. and sometimes they need everybody’s opinion. That’s why you get thru to the first stage of a survey but not the rest. I learned that because the same thing was happening to me.
      I guess they keep who they are looking for opinions from a secret to keep people honest too because if they told people who they are looking for, then some people would have no problems telling lies or pretending to get paid which is sad, but true. But just trust me and keep at it and eventually you’ll be getting checks in the mail or deposits in your pay pal account rather! don’t give up especially if you enjoy taking surveys!

  • Fay

    Ibotta pays you for grocery shopping. Normally it will have you answer one survey type question or watch a short commercial to automatically get paid anywhere from $.25-$5.00. That is by far my favorite app for extra money. Use referral code seucnfn for a $10 bonus just for trying the app.

  • Vindale

    Sorry to hear that, Shannon. What is your referral link associated with your account?

    • Fabiana Domequis Chaves

      Ok ok with me, I contacted support. I received it once and qualified and again nothing else comes in. As we are at the end of the year, I am looking forward to the beginning of the year to try again

      • juris klavins

        make sure all of your profiles and personal preferences are complete and up to date – that’s how survey sites determine your qualification for each survey – not all surveys apply to all persons :o)

  • Linda Lieberman

    Has anyone ever done a phone/computer interview with Survey Engine? I got called by them a few days ago, they set an appointment for me to do a 90 mins. interview with them at 2pm today to be paid $40. When the interview was over, they said I’d be called back before 4pm to discuss payment. No one called. I am on ES Time zone. They were in MT Zone (2 hours earlier) so I called back at 6pm EST. Had to leave a voice mail. I think I’ve been ripped off. Anyone else have this happen with Survey Engine?

  • Faleh Divisha Nicolenly

    Actually I don’t have any of my own 5 favorites sites..but this is my first time to try this to see if I can earn any money from this blog..

  • Pat Flynn

    Survey Junkie Just as good as Vindale. It’s a partner sight.

  • Kendra

    i feel the same way

  • Man

    Some of the Vindale surveys have late disqualification so thats a waste of time , should be some compensation there !

  • Navid Pervej Turjo

    Earning station, Swagbucks, Tulona also should be listed.

  • I am in “The Panel Station” and “Live Tribe”, LiveTribe pay up ok, I have just received a “Woolworths” voucher worth $100 in Australia. I bought my ham, and everything we needed, it cost us $98.05 so the lady said to grab a chocolate, which I did, and all our Christmas Food and food to make our own salads only cost us 5c. Pretty cool.. Vindale I have over $36, and I have around $31 on the Panel Station. Just a couple to add.

    You can also join Neilsons Consumer Scanning all your groceries. You earn points, I received to date 2 x $100 Prepaid Visa Cards. Worth a try too. Your points continually add up, then you are in different levels Bronze up to Diamond, there are different gifts for each level. Bags, Phones and much more, so you can get a gift or eftpos card whatever you wish for.

    xx Dee

    I’m new to search engines. But I have been successful with Toluna and have been very happy. I am tb in the Livra (awaiting awards) The Panel Station (waiting) Vindale (waiting) Clixsense (waiting). But do not stop there and others were discarded for not really being good at anything.
