I use E-Rewards.  It works pretty well and I trade in the points for gift certificates to restaurants.  The gift certificates are usually half price so I usually pay between $10-$12 for a $25.00 gc.  You will usually get 2 or more surveys your choice) a day and the amounts can range from 2.00 and up and even if you don’t qualify for the entire survey you sometimes get .25c or more.  I started it in December and so far I’ve gotten 2 gcs and that was doing it maybe 3-4 times a week.  I still have points to earn more gc but I haven’t had the time to go through the restaurant listing to cash them in.  E-Reward has many different options for gc so you can choose different ones for clothes, and other stuff.

I too use e-rewards. I’ve used my points for gift cards and a magazine subscription. I just go on at my leisure (once a wk or so) fill out the survey and wait to cash in my points.

E-rewards is actually my least favorite.  I don’t really like most of the options available.

I use Surveyspot and Ipsos I say.  I get a few hundred through them a year and have gotten a lot of products to test.  I don’t know if anyone who makes thousands a week is really legit though. The only tip I have is try all the surveys offered, you might get into a good one.  I have been part of a few groups where I report purchases in a certain area and get rewarded at the end of the time.  One was for $45 for reporting holiday shopping!

Along the lines of things to do on the internet to make money, I love Swagbucks!  It’s a search engine and has other things you can do online to earn bucks which convert into gift cards, paypal deposits or other stuff!  PM me if you would like a referral!

I should also mention that I do the Nielson one now call NCP as well, but it’s not for really for surveys although there are some.  You use a scanner to scan the items you purchase every week and you upload the info to their webpage.  You are given points and the more you scan and the more of their surveys you take you get points.  You can also win iPads and kindles and bonus points.  I’ve been doing that for about 3 yrs or more and I got a razor scooter for my son, an mp3 player and a Wii gift pack and I still have over 4000 points left.  You scan your items, so if you purchase gas, groceries, clothes, electronics, etc you scan all of that stuff and you get the points.  They also do contests where you can win more, they recently did one for NFL.

I am surprised nobody has mentioned Pinecone Research. I would guess I have made $150 or so. I have been a member for about 2 years. You get paid $3 per survey and they can send you checks or send it right to your PayPal. I chose the PayPal option because it makes it easy to buy things on Ebay without needing a card connected to it (although I do have my Credit Union linked to my PayPal). The surveys take about 15 mins and they don’t ask repetitive questions. It’s like getitng paid $12/ hr, so I like it. I get probably one survey a month, but it varies depending on your profiles. If I had kids, I am sure I would get more survey opportunities.

I do e-rewards, or at least I used to when my job was really boring and I could take surveys all day.  So far, I’ve received 2 or 3 $50 Express gift cards (my fave store) and a subscription to Self magazine.  Good times!

Though I did some amazon test thing…I really can’t remember.  But you basically pick a test, and it involves doing a search and seeing how far down the search results the item is…or going to the site and seeing if it mentions a certain key word.  It was boring as hell.  I probably made like 1 cent and spent 2 hrs figuring out what I was doing.

@javoho:  I do NCP too, but it can get annoying to have to scan everything you buy.

@wifeNat:  

Yes, it does get annoying especially when you have to enter the prices.  I don’t always scan everything but I do try to upload every Saturday.
