Survey Spotlight

by Nicole on February 4, 2010

I have written extensively in the past about surveys and how I am able to earn money each month doing them.  I haven’t mentioned surveys in a while now, but I wanted to revisit the topic.  I am going to try to spotlight 3 survey companies each week.  If you aren’t signed up with the ones I am mentioning, you’ll have the opportunity to.  The more survey companies you are signed up with the more opportunities you will get!

I get emails and comments sometimes about people getting frustrated when they disqualify for surveys – you can’t take it personally! I disqualify for many of them, that’s why I recommend signing up with so many companies. Often, you don’t fit the demographic they need as they try to get a representative sample of the population.

The 3 survey companies I want to spotlight this week are:

1.  My Survey.  This is a favorite of mine.  You get credit for the screeners you take and then are advised if you qualify for the survey.  The recently changed their points redemption system and have always compensated fairly for the surveys.

2.  Lightspeed Research. I receive on average 1 invite per day with Lightspeed.  I cash out for money via Paypal and find that when I do disqualify, they are quick about it and it doesn’t happen after I’ve answered 20 questions!

3.  HCD Surveys.  This company does a lot of market research on current events and politics.  Their surveys are usually very short with nice compensation given the survey length.  My only complaint is that their surveys close quickly so act fast when you get an invite!

 If you’re new to surveys definitely sign up with a separate email address for surveys.  It’ll make it easier to have an inbox you know will be filled with survey invites.

Hi, I keep clicking on your link for Lightspeed and I am receiving an error message that this page is no longer available….Any ideas!!!
Thank you!
I am also trying to find a link to Pinecone research, do you know if they are going to be offering anything any time soon? The only link I could find was to Surfbounty’s, have you hear of them? Thanks!

Not sure what the problem with the link is – you can try this one –, that should work. I haven’t found any Pinecone links but I will post as soon as I find one!

Yes, I am planning to post a new spotlight this coming week. If you’re looking for surveys though, feel free to click the “surveys” tab at the top of the blog and you’ll see all the posts I have ever written about survey companies!
