Survey sites, in general, don’t pay well. You end up spending a ton of time finding them, filling out forms, and then maybe you’ll qualify for a small payment after jumping through a few hoops. The trick is to find a site you can join for free that will give you at least a few surveys a week at the bare minimum. In general, here’s how survey sites work. Here’s my getcashforsurveys.com review.
What is Getcashforsurveys.com?
This site claims that you can make A LOT of money by simply completing surveys online.
Owner: Owned by Gary Mitchell
Operating as: Survey Partners Worldwide, LLC
Causeway Bay, Hong Kong Island
What do they claim?
- You’ll get paid in your currency
- The site will show you hundreds of surveys available so that you can start making money right away
- Some offers will pay you to review products; you can then keep the products after submitting your review
- You get a $50 special promotion just for completing your first paid survey
- Claims that the average amount of money paid for surveys is $20.
- If you do 5 surveys a day at an average of $20 per survey, five days a week, that’s $500 per week.
- Three added bonuses at a total value of $89.95–FREE!
- 60-day money back guarantee
- One-time fee of $74.00 that can be paid with PayPal or a major credit card.
- You can use the coupon for 50% off which makes the price $37.00
- The hook: sign up right away before all the spots are taken!
Here’s the Reality
So they dangle a bonus offer valued at $89.95 while they are asking you to pay a measly $37.00 upfront (after applying the 50% coupon offer). Sounds like a deal, right? You pay a one-time fee of $37.00 and get three added bonuses valued at $89.95! That sounds like a bargain! Here’s what really happens:
- After you make your purchase and buy the product, they start hitting you with a lot of upsells.
- Their database of survey sites is organized by country so the number of surveys available to you may depend on which country you are in.
- You have to fill out online registration forms for each survey.
- Some of those survey sites will require you to download their software in order to complete the survey. This exposes your computer to potentially harmful malware and adware.
- They offer to provide you with free websites but in order to get those free websites, you have to buy their web hosting product which they make a commission from.
- Some of the surveys set you up to fail. They promise you a decent payment only to yank it away after you fail the pre-screening. Not selected? Big surprise, right? In the meantime, how much time have you wasted on that dangling $10 carrot?
- Not all surveys offer cash. Many offer reward points instead.
- They can use or sell your personal information to third parties to “bring selected retail opportunities to our members via email and phone.”
So here’s my problem. YOU HAVE TO PAY THEM UPFRONT! That makes me nervous. If you decide that you are not happy with the surveys, how you get paid, etc., you have to request a refund. Why can’t they let you try it out free for 60-days and then charge you a flat fee if you continue on after that?
There are too many red flags here for me. Like I said before, you should NEVER have to pay to take a survey. With that in mind, I cannot recommend this site as a profitable way to make money online. Buyer beware!
