Sources of free surveys for money

Many have tried to earn money by completing surveys online. While many surveys are scams, there are some that are legitimate. However, you need to consider several points before signing up. Read this article to know more about free surveys for money.

Paid surveys

Many people are searching for ways to earn money, particularly home opportunities to earn online, either to earn extra or because they feel pressured to "earn money now" due to being fired. One such opportunity that seems like an easy way to earn cash from home is by completing paid surveys online. There are some genuine companies that will pay for your time to complete online surveys and they are few. The number of those that are scams is growing. There are several important aspects to consider with online survey opportunities.

Legitimate?

Suggestions for deciding if offers of money for surveys are genuine include: 1) Is the company actually looking to make money from you through a high registration fee? They should be paying you to work, not taking money upfront before they’ve proven their claims. 2) Legitimate companies usually first ask you for information to better select surveys for you, without asking for money. If you must pay for an information package providing you with the survey sites, it’s best to stay away. 3) Beware of companies which promise that you can make six figures a month by completing web surveys if you buy their “trademark system”. Surveys may pay a few dollars for a survey. However, if the company states each of their surveys pays hundreds of dollars for a few minutes work, avoid them. 4) Beware of sites that require you to find others to join their site, stating that you receive a percentage of their earnings. This is a pyramid scheme and is illegal in the U.S. You should make money for your work, not others. 5) Make sure the survey company includes your country. Some may have modest registration fees that appear reasonable, but don’t tell you that they don’t operate in your country until after joining.

The bottom line

Don’t pay to complete surveys. Research the company to see if there’s anything written about them. There are several blogs with comments on survey sites that are worth looking into. Check with the Better Business Bureau or the similar reporting agency in your country to see if the company is registered and if there are complaints against them. Avoid sites that advertise you can "Get money now". There are legitimate opportunities available that allow you to make money online by completing surveys. However, generally you won’t make much. Do your research before joining and you can avoid getting scammed.
