$20 Reward Free from Big Buck Surveys

I really enjoyed this recent opportunity for $20!

Before I begin my post, I just did this the other day. So, I have not gotten my $20 yet. They say it will take up to 8 weeks and you will be paid via Paypal. But, I definitely did this offer, because it is well worth the few minutes to see if it arrives.

First, Big Buck Surveys usually does not give money away regularly. Primarily, they have you take part in "online offer" type surveys and your name gets entered into a drawing. So, I usually don't type about them on my site, as there is no guarantee of money with a drawing.

But, this time, your name goes into a drawing AND you are to receive a $20 reward.

Want to take part, too? Click here.

Before you start, click on the Participation Terms link and make sure to copy this. There is a phrase at the very bottom, Cash Incentives. This is the section you want to have handy as it explains this $20 promotion. I would also do a screen print quickly and save to Word ( or wherever ) of that sign up page, and copy the url on that same Word document. It is just always handy to have documentation.

Next, register and then complete the survey questions. These questions are similar to the ones at the start of an online offer. So, they are more like little advertisements you can read and either click if you are interested.

I actually sent this to my "online offers" email account. If you do this, make sure you have a paypal account set up with this same email address otherwise how will you get paid? Also, make sure to go to the email account then and confirm the invite them send you.

It didn't take me long at all and I am looking forward to 8 weeks from now!

Can you have more than one PayPal account?

Thanks for the post. I tried it. If it comes through in 8 weeks, that will be the easist $20 I've made this week! It only took about 5 minutes! Thanks.

Yes, I have about 5 Paypal accounts. I set them up for each email. I have one for mystery shops, one for surveys, etc, etc.

The only downfall? You have to had a unique checking or savings account to withdraw the money. For me, since I have so many with all the Bank Offers I is not an issue.

If you only have one, then you may log in. I have heard you can link email addresses, so they all go to the same Paypal. I have not tried this, so I am not positive. But, worth looking into.

I know...super easy. I am holding my breath to see if it comes thru.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

I felt it was so easy, that it was worth all of us to try and see. I was afraid if I tried and tested my $20 in 8 weeks...the offer would be gone and not available for everyone.

Let's keep our fingers crossed. I marked my calendar, too, so I can follow up if it doesn't come thru.

Hey! Thanks for the info on paypal! I linked several email addresses to my paypal account (can link up to eight!) - so now I have a choice of what email address to use for something that pays through paypal!

Okay. I did it! I also printed and copied the screen that said I had completed the survey - and did the NEXT survey, just to be sure they didn't say I completed the entry, but didn't complete the survey.

But the second one was REALLY quick!

Of course, I got several emails WHILE taking the survey. I got one from MyBigRewards.

Are we supposed to click and join that too? Is that the same company?

Carrie, you already know this, but I thought I'd see what your other readers have to say:

I have had no luck actually receiving my reward. When I emailed the company, they sent me a link for $20 off a $60 purchase at Omaha Steaks (what???) I replied, explaining that this was NOT the reward they promised, and have received no further response from them. At this point their website does not seem to be up any longer, either. Has anyone else succeeded in actually getting their reward with this company? And since I haven't received mine, is there a way for me to complain if the company has actually gone out of business? Thanks!

I just filed a complaint with the BBB,since they still have this advertisement listed. I found it again. If you need the link, let me know and I will send it to you.

Just start a complaint, and if they aren't listed from mine ( I just did it ), then you have the option to enter their contact information.

It can all be found here, under the contact button.
