Market Research Survey - $0.01 +0.66 bonus Confirmed!
$2.75 / hour
00:14:36 / completion time
ProsI did it just to say that I did one of these godawful things
Instant approval and bonus, at least???????
ConsWay too many demographics pages to go through before you get to find an actual survey, if you even manage to find one in the first place
Slave wage pay for an endless survey with an annoying interface
I made sure that I had ten minutes to do the survey, and it ended up taking me 14 minutes to do, which is over the limit that the requester listed
Pay is not shown until end of the survey, so you're forced to slog through the survey in the hopes that you'll actually be paid anything good
There is no option in the HIT to complain about the terrible survey content
Overall a waste of time
I emailed the requester about the survey going over the time limit, and complained about the terrible wage for the survey. It has been 2 weeks, and there has been no response.
Market Research Survey Attempt - $0.02
$0.31 / hour
00:03:50 / completion time
ConsI gave this HIT the benefit of the doubt a couple of times. But it is NOT worth it. At first, it will tell you the minimum bonus is $1.82. Then, when you click the link it drops to about $0.52. After that, you will continue to do screenings (sometimes the same ones you got disqualified for 5 times already) until you just give up. So you wasted 15-20 minutes for $0.02.
Be cautious about when you do 'qualify' for a HIT. It will direct you to a survey and take 20+ minutes only for you to get to 90% completion and then to throw you out for all of a sudden not qualifying anymore.
Market Research Survey - $0.01 +0.22 bonus
$4.20 / hour
00:03:17 / completion time
ProsSometimes, you get "lucky", and the survey is really short. I haven't done one of these in over a year, but the first one I've done in a while turned out to be "quick".
The pay is pretty much instant, and you get alerted of the "bonus" (not really a bonus, it's what they owe you) in an email pretty much right away.
ConsI do not recommend these to anyone. Not even my worst enemy.
Okay, maybe my worst enemy.
