Synovate Survey Panel - Earn $

I am not sure why, but this has been a great survey year for me. I have found some new panels I was not a member of before ( I didn't realize it was possible for me to find new companies still, but apparently..yes..yes, it is ).

You may remember I introduced Palm Research earlier this year. And, I have done great with that company. In fact, the first week I was a member I was accepted into a survey that then lead to a discussion board. I have already been paid $30 for it, and they now contacted me and have asked me to take part in the 2nd portion. So, I have another $10 coming, and possibly $20 more if I am one of the top contributors during the discussion period.

So, I have earned a definite $40 thanks to Palm. Maybe even $60! :) I am quite happy.

Right when I found Palm Research, I was also introduced to Synovate's Global Opinion Panel. So, these were two new panels for me.

I had heard of this company, but for some reason didn't realized they paid you in points that could then be redeemed for cash.

Once I realized that I would be earning points for taking surveys, I jumped on board and signed up last week. On top of that, they mentioned that their surveys take between 5 to 10 minutes. I really like that, because often times surveys can end up taking a lot longer than that. I am all for quick surveys!

I wanted to see how it panned out on my end before sharing on my blog, and I am happy to report that I received my first incentive right away. They paid me 250 points to take a survey about myself.

Then just today, I received my first survey from them for 900 points. I finished it and it took less than 10 minutes, just as promised.

I will note, when you get your surveys they come from Marie Brighton. So make sure you realize that those emails are valuable survey invites.

Payout occurs at 5,000 points for $5.

So,if you get 900 points in 10 minutes, but need 5,000 points for $5. Doesn't that mean it will take 1 hour for you to make $5? Is this really a good payout?

It will always depend on the survey. Each can be worth a different amount.

But, any 5 to 10 minute survey gets me excited.

If you do enough of these survey companies, you will realize you will stumble upon some companies that pay the same for 30 20 to 30 minute surveys ( or super long screener and then you get nothing ).

Make sure to read my Survey web page, as it explains survey companies.

Any site that tells you will get rich taking surveys is NOT true! Don't ever pay to join a site that tries to claim this or get you to sign up. Surveys are not a get rich plan.

The payout is nothing near what it would be if you had a job. Instead, it is for those who like to make a little extra from the comfort of home when they have free time. Most people seem to say they save up the money to pay for gifts near the Holidays.

Personally, I like to cash out as soon as I am able. You never know when a website or company will go out of business, change their terms, etc. I always find it wiser to cash out as soon as you can.

But, if you are out of work or a stay at home mom like me and have a laptop, it is a fun way to make extra money while sitting down with my husband at night while he watches TV. :)

Hope that helps clarify the world of surveys.
