Do enough surveys, get $10
I could do the math and average it out for for you, but I’m lazy. That being said, this app is perfect for me! I get a notification for a survey, it will tell me its worth $1-$3 (I’ve had one was worth $10, to see a movie, and because I wanted to see it anyway, I went!), maybe $5-$6, there is really no set in stone price you will receive. I click in and I always accept, because even if you end up not qualifying, you can get $.10-$.25 just for opening the survey. One of them gave me $.50. That’s no set in stone, either.. Yes, on the majority, you will get nothing if you answer a question and they deem you not qualified. As of right now, I’ve redeemed 8 times! So most times it’s just $10+ except for that one time I redeemed more because of the movie.
So why not? Yeah you’re giving away information about your opinions, and yes there are surveys that want photos of your phone bill, but those are the ones that pay better money. If you’re worried about your credit card info being stolen, that info is not on the pictures they want of. Do the surveys at your own discretion. But hey, I’ve made almost $100, did you?
Easy money while sitting around.
I travel a lot with my husband on business so we are driving on the road a lot. I love it when I get a survey notification. I don’t always qualify and some of them are just 50 cents but that adds up over time. I have been invited to do a few $40 AND $50 surveys but I didn’t qualify, it was a bummer! But I can’t complain there is a science to their madness. Only once did I get frustrated with all the questions to only make like a dime or quarter, I can’t remember. But don’t give up, I just cashed out over $28 for answering questions when I didn’t have much of nothing else to do. Oh, you can leave the survey to answer the phone, but only about 10-15 minuets.
The only downside I have found is when reviewing a soon-to-be advertised movie coming out they show you a clip and ask detailed questions about the clip. A LOT of questions, pay really close attention or watch it twice!! Because you can’t go back and watch it again during the survey and I think I got some characters confused! They should fix that..... overall?? Thumbs up!
Frustrating at times but when it works its a good app
When you first download it gives you a bunch of surveys and you work up to about $5.00. After that you get NOTHING. and when they do come its very picky with who they credit. Most times you will get 80% of the way through a survey and have already been going for 20 minutes and the app decides that you are not fit and gives you 10 cents as opposed to $3.00. It is so frustrating because i feel like they take all the information they want and then ditch you with 10 cents. Along with the topic before, if you do get a survey it alerts you through a push notification like my settings say to maybe 10% of the time. However do make real money off of it if you have A LOT of patience and time. I’ve made $70 over the course of 2 years and just cashed out(i did receive payment). To the app developers, PLEASE PLEASE make a limit on how many questions i can be asked before continuing! It’s really frustrating spending 15-30 minutes doing a $3 survey only to be told 80-90% through i’m not qualified! and please fix your push notifications so they will come to my phone!
They get more than they pay for
I’ve been using this app and answering all the questions they ask which the exception of the surveys that want photos of my bills with personal and account info. Too sketchy to provide that in my opinion. Additionally, the survey payouts are misleading for most. If I have to qualify for a survey, then they need to show that they are paying me for the qualification survey...because that’s what it is. You’re made to take a survey of 10-20 questions to be told that you do not qualify for the follow on survey and get paid 10 cents when the initial advertisement was for a much greater amount. Over all I’ve taken many surveys and I still can’t cash out because I haven’t made it to $10 yet. The information given was probably enough to totally steal my identity if each survey were combined. I’ve given up info about religion, political views, income, number of children, ages of family members, employment, entertainment, and much more in addition to being asked for photos of my bills. Definitely getting ripped of by data mining...it would be great to actually qualify for a real paying survey instead of being tricked into a survey with hope of something better.
You’ll Never Qualify
Don’t waste your time. I’ve had this app and tried every single survey they offered me for the past two months now and have never qualified. It’s usually because I’ll go on errands like grocery shopping, get gas, get food, and then get home and watch some TV and they’re usually looking for answers about ONE of those things but if you’ve done 2+ of those things at one time then you’re disqualified. Over and over and over and over again. It’ll entice you with $6 surveys, $2 for 5 minutes, a couple questions here, just a bit of your time but all it does is take your attention and stop your life rhythm for ten fudgin’ cents.
Don’t waste your time. You’re better than that. You’re more than ~$6 of rejection over two months.
Note to programmers: give incentives. Maybe $.50 for every 10th survey you get rejected. Maybe a percentage of the survey total instead of $.10 regardless of the survey offer? 10% to be disqualified. I would at least feel somewhat worth my opinion at least once if you do something to show worthiness instead of flipping a dime at me for my troubles. It becomes routine, daunting, expected, and then sad after a while...after being told your opinion doesn’t qualify 15 times.
I have been using this app for over year now, and I have cashed out several times, in the past, however, with all of my traveling, shopping, and visits to so many great stores, I have experienced a drastic decline in my survey opportunities. This app, now, takes me such a long time to cash out. At this time, I no longer feel that this is a great app for me, however, I was contacted and things improved for me and I was able to cash out. I downloaded this app again today, and I gave them a better rating. I recently moved, so I am going to see how things work out for me, and I hope I will enjoy this app again, just like I used to, and be able to give them a five star rating, like I did before.
Update: Today, I cashed out again, and I changed their rating to five stars. As previously stated, I’ve been using this app a long time and have truly enjoyed doing so, and I plan to continue to do so. I am looking forward to many more fun surveys on the go!
Takes a bit longer than I expected but good
I was expecting higher paying surveys but at least my account wasn’t suspended just when I was about to redeem my rewards. This happened to me with another survey app and I wrote a pretty aggressive message indicating that I was very disappointed and quite upset in that I had just spent a great deal of time answering their surveys only to have my account suspended when I tried to redeem my rewards. Thankfully, they reactivated my account and stated that there was an error in my account suspension and I ultimately received my cash reward via PAYPAL as I originally should have. So, all this to say that I am grateful that this did not happen with Surveys On the Go. However, I do have one concern about survey companies and that is when they ask for me to take photos of my bills and driver’s license, etc. Now, isn’t that quite a bit too private to be requesting? I always decline but why do companies ask for this information? I don’t think that is right.
I went in fully knowing they will make more off my information than I get in return, so no issue there. I usually get kicked out of a survey I don't qualify for early in the preliminary section so it doesn't bother me as much. I've made a little over 14 dollars just doing little surveys here and there in the past three and half months. As for the cons to this app, there are often long stretches of no surveys which can be a little annoying but most annoyingly is constantly getting a push notification that I have a survey, usually a good money amount, waiting for me, but then loading the app to find no surveys waiting at all. I would really like it if this problem could be fixed.
When I do get a good survey, the effort is usually fairly minimal for the payout, and it is better than other survey apps I've seen. Only one entertainment survey I did took a very long time and effort for only 2 dollars but I wasn't doing anything at time so I guess I can't argue.
Was good, now possibly a scam
My initial review was very positive. For the past year, this app has become a waste of time. You are going to receive surveys that advertise $1-3 upon completion. You are going to be told that you will receive $0.10 if you don’t qualify. You are then going to spend anywhere from 5-20 minutes answering a very large number of detailed questions and an overwhelming amount of the time you will be told that you do not qualify. In fact, I’ve been keeping notes on this for months and out of the last 30 surveys that I’ve taken, each of which asked me no less than 8 questions (except for 1 that rejected me on the second question after answering that I’m white) and only 4 of those 30 have I qualified for.
I no longer trust this app or the surveys. I have seen this app gather massive amounts of data from me and every time, I’m told I don’t qualify. I wouldn’t mind the lack of qualifications if it weren’t for the large numbers of questions asked in each survey before being rejected. We are talking far more than basic demographic questions. This app gathers far too much data and not paying out. It is dishonest, in my opinion.
Some survey sites are so complicated, but this one is not. I do not qualify for many surveys, as I live alone, am a “senior” and have a limited income. I don’t have a lot of purchasing ability, so I suppose companies are not interested in my expertise! LOL That being said, there are certain areas where my feedback is valued, such as Healthcare, Insurance...General areas like that. Higher paying surveys, take longer to process and will show up as “pending” for a few days. I just cashed in for a bit over $20 and you can cash in, after you hit $10 I believe. Some sites you have to reach a certain number of points to cash in and it seems to take forever to reach the amount. One last area of praise...I cashed in less than a half hour ago and already got the e-mail from PayPal, saying the money was already in my account! Now that IS FAST! One site I belong to takes almost a week to get credited!
