2014 Listings for the Best Web Survey Sites
Here is the place to sign up for programs that offer cash rewards and prizes for testing products and giving your opinions in online surveys and polls. Here is the way it works for most paid survey sites: you sign up and fill out a form giving your demographic information, etc. This is necessary for you to fill out so that they know which surveys you are qualified for. When there is a survey available for you to take, the site will send you an invitation via email. The invitation will specify whether you will be entered in a prize drawing for taking the survey, or will receive a cash payment. Remember, depending on your age, sex, area you live, if you are a parent, and other information about you - the amount of surveys you are sent is variable for each site. It's fun to give your opinion though - why not sign up for 'em all!
