Survey List

I started taking surveys for companies a few years back but wasn’t real serious about it. Last summer I decided to get more serious so I joined up for many more. Now that I have been a member of them for around six months or so for most of them I think it’s time I started to figure out when to cash out my rewards. I made this list just for that reason. This list basically lists all of the survey companies that I’m a member of, what their rewards are and what their minimum amount I need to cash out. I also list the number of surveys I have taken and if possible the total number of surveys compared to how many I actually completed for a reward. This list is not an extensive detailed list nor does it list every single survey company out there. This is just to give you an idea of how my survey experience is going and also to help you a little to determine what the best survey companies are. Since this list isn’t not very detailed and just my opinion I have decided to list two sites that review survey companies that I find useful and think you will too. They are Survey Police and MySurvey123. I hope this list is a little helpful to you. Sign up for as many as you like.

I am about to cash out on some of these so I’ll update this when I do and when I receive my reward. Also I join more sites as I time goes by so I’ll be adding to them to this as well.

Some notes I want to point out:
1. This is based on my experiences. You may do better than I or not as good based on your demographics.

2. Some companies have referral programs. I have marked each survey where the link to the survey company is my referral.

3. If you do join a company that does more than just surveys and has you do offers try to join the survey though their links as you may get more points from them in that way. Since I have joined so many not that way it makes it harder to do offers as I’ve joined all the sites they recommend and can’t get credit for them though them.


Top Favorite Surveys (Or sites that I have received Payment from once)

Clear Voice Surveys - (Updated November 4, 2013)
 $10 min cash out rewarded as Amazon giftcard, $25 Restaurant gift certificate, and Payoneer prepaid debit Mastercard.
Started in September  2010 and have cashed out six times ($60 Amazon eCertificate total).  I have taken many surveys from them and they are usually between $.50-$1.  If you disqualify from a survey you earn $0.10 which I like.  I have taken a few test products from them and they usually give you about $2 for their surveys along with the text product itself.  At first I didn't care for this site but it has grown on me.  I like that you can redeem at $10 and it comes within an hour or so after requesting it.  The only downside is that rewards expire in a year if not redeemed, so please cash out as soon as you get the minimum!  One a side note: many survey sites are powered by this company in that they are run the exact same way in everything. Some of them are: Get Paid To Try SurveysSurvey Club ResearchSpeak Up Surveys, and USA Talk Now.  I was a member of all five of these but this summer my accounts had to be re-verified and when I did that for some reason two of them somehow deleted my accounts as if they never existed.  I found that to be really odd but decided to give up on them since I was already very busy and only lost a few dollars.  I thought it was an alright loss but was a little disappointed about it too.  By the way, if you want to be a member of these and the others that are like Clear Voice Surveys that is fine but they offer mostly the same exact surveys.  However, there is a trick you can do to get paid for them all but it don't always work.

Consumer Village - (Updated November 18, 2013)
500 points ($5) min cash out via Amazon gift code which they automatically send you once you’ve reached 500 points. They incentive payout is a little complicated but they do provide a chart to try and make it more clear.
I joined in August 2010 and now have earned my fourth payment (a total of $40). They offer a few different activities to earn points (flashpolls for 15 or 30 points each, dialogues for 15 - 75 points each, and surveys for 100 points each if you qualify and 20 if you don't.

Datatelligence Online - (Updated November 4, 2013)
1,000 points ($10) min cash out via Amazon gift code
I joined in August 2010 and have finally cashed out for two $10 Amazon eCertificates ($20 total) on November 3rd.  The gift codes arrived the next day.  I now how 80 points remaining in my account. You get 40 points for registering and 40 points each for joining all the 6 panels. I have completed 10 surveys (rewarding either 100, 200 or 300 points each).  In 2010 and 2011, they also rewarded with with two gift certificates from Barnes and Noble ($15 and $7) but I'm not sure they do this anymore as I have not received one of those since.

E-Rewards.com - (Updated November 12, 2013)
This site is by invitation only from one of their sponsors.  Their rewards varies by what program you sign up through.  My reward is for checks to Upromise.  I have been rewarded four times since I joined (end of '11) for a total of $200.

Esearch.com - (Updated November 12, 2013)
They pay by PayPal for every survey that you take.  Payment usually takes about two months to get to your account though.  I have been a member with them since September '10 and usually just receive a few payments for them each year ranging from $1 - $2.50.

Global Test Market - (Updated December 4, 2013)

They have now changed to be similar to MySurvey in rewards.  You can request a $50 check for 1,100 points (I request these), gift cards, and other merchandise and the points expire in three years.
Each survey you take you receive a sweepstakes entry and some surveys that is your reward.
I joined sometime in May '10.  I have cashed out for a $100 check four times since then.  Last month alone I completed 8 surveys for 10 - 35 points each.
I have done a product test for them.

Ipsos - (Updated January 28, 2013)

1,000 ($10) points min cash out. Rewards are check, PayPal, Visa Prepaid Gift Card, Amazon, iTunes, or donation. If you are patient the $1,000 PayPal is the best value as it's only 85,000 points.
I have cashed out once in April 2010 for $25 via check and at that time I used up almost all the points I had accumulated since I registered. Since then I currently have 24,970 points.  This includes the points that were added when Synovate merged with Ipsos (I had about $50 worth in points with them). As you can tell I am going to be patient and try and get to 85,000 points so I can get the best value for my points.  Since November '12 til now (January 28, 2013) I have taken 66 surveys. Surveys range in points from 45 – 150 points. However, many that I've done are only worth 5 points (53 of them) which means I didn't qualify for the survey.  I also had one give me 10 points instead of the five.
They have a loyalty program so the more surveys you take they reward you with more points. Another reward they have is their anniversary program. The longer you stay a member of their panel you get bonus points on your anniversary. I have received many loyalty rewards points and also have received my anniversary points this year.
After each survey you take even if you disqualify you get to take the Poll Predictor. In the poll predictor you get points too but these points are used to enter sweepstakes.
I have done a couple product tests for them.

McCormick Consumer Testing - (Added November 4, 2013)
I recently joined and have taken a few surveys.  So far their surveys just reward a sweepstakes entry.  I was lucky to win one.  The reward was a $25 Amazon eCerfiticate which arrived a few hours after I was notified that I was a winner.

MySurvey - (Updated December 4, 2013)

You can request a $50 check for 5,500 points (I request these), gift cards, and other merchandise.
I have been a member of MySurvey for a while. I have cashed out for $100 in checks four times since I have joined.  Last month I completed 13 surveys for 20 - 150 points each.  I have done test products for them.

Min cash out varies for reward. The rewards are: PayPal ($10), Amazon ($5), Alawar Games ($3), iTunes ($10), Restaurant.com ($10, and American Red Cross donation ($5).  1 point = $1
I joined sometime in April '10.  I finally cashed out for the first time in December '12 when Opinion Outpost was doing a special on Amazon gift cards.  If you redeemed for one, they would also include a $1 MP3 Amazon credit!  I thought this was a great chance to finally cash out and so I did.  I redeemed as many points as I could and managed to claim $120 worth in Amazon gift cards (1,200 points).  This also gave me $24 worth in MP3 Amazon credit too!   This reward came with in less than a day after I redeemed for them.  Since then (December '12) I now have just 40 points in my account.  From December 1, 2012 until now (January 22, 2013), I attempted 46 surveys but only completed 7 of them. The points range from 5 – 15 points.

Opinion Square - (Updated February 4, 2013)
Rewards are giftcards, merchandise or donations. The $25 gift cards seem to me to be the best value for 5,700 points.
I joined sometime in August '11.  I have 27,600 points (never cashed out). At this time I have not decided what I want to spend my points on.  Since November '11 till now (February 4, 2013) I have attempted 41 surveys, 16 of which were from disqualifications. Each of their surveys are usually worth 200 points (sometimes they are also worth 400 or 600 points). If you disqualify for a survey you get one token to use in their Token Game to get more points which is usually just 25 points but you can also get 50 and 100 points from it too.  Tokens expire with in the quarter you received them in so it's best to use them as soon as you get them. I also got a 500 point bonus when I completed 10 surveys.
Note: They suggest that you install their software onto your computer. They say it’ll increase your eligibility for surveys.  I did however receive a $15 Visa Gift Card for having it installed for a few weeks.

Opinion World  (Updated January 22, 2013)
Min cash out varies for reward. The rewards are:PayPal ($10), Amazon ($10), WebShop (varies gift cards) ($10), and American Red Cross (no min.).  100 point = $1
I joined sometime in November '10.  I finally cashed out for the first time in December '12 when Opinion World was doing a special on Amazon gift cards.  If you redeemed for one, they would also include a $1 MP3 Amazon credit!  I thought this was a great chance to finally cash out and so I did.  I redeemed as many points as I could and managed to claim $50 worth in Amazon gift cards (5,000 points).  This also gave me $5 worth in MP3 Amazon credit too!  This reward came with in less than a day after I redeemed for them.  Since then (December '12) I now have just 400 points in my account.  From December 1, 2012 until now (January 22, 2013), I attempted 16 surveys but only completed 3 of them.  The points range from 50 - 200 points.

I have done a couple product tests for them.
Note: Surveyspot, Opinion World, and Opinion Outpost are all owned by the same company but I like  all of them.


Quick Rewards - Referral link (Updated November 12, 2013)
They have three systems to earn rewards. I had a question about this when I first joined so I emailed them to explain the three systems and this is their reply, "0.72 is $0.72, 50 is quickpoints. As soon as you reach 100, it automatically converts into $0.01, last is tokens. They are a bonus and take a while to collect. You can then redeem them for various gifts."
So you basically can earn money (Paypal no min) and giftcards ($5 min).  You can also donate your money too.  The tokens can be redeemed for magazines and movie tickets.
I joined sometime in July '11.   This year alone I  have cashed out for a total of $300 ($100 in March and $200 in November).  Last year I also cashed out twice but for $200 total (June '12 and December '12).  The payment comes within a week.  I now have also have 237,636 tokens but have not cashed out with yet. There are many ways to earn money. For example: shopping, completing surveys, reading emails, performing searches, visiting websites, printing coupons, watching videos, playing games, trying new products, signing up for newsletters, and entering contests. I mainly do the surveys and they send at least four emails with a few in each.  I get most of my earnings from the surveys, watching videos, and visiting sites. For the past six months earned about $20.33 each month with earning more each month (last month I earned the most from them (about $35).  The surveys reward between $0.50 - $1.00 each. They have a very helpful customer service department that has helped me out many times.

Survey Downline - Referral link (Updated November 26, 2013)
$20 min cash out via PayPal.  They also also offer a reward for magazine subscription or Facebook credit.
Joined in February '11 and didn't do so well at first.  Most surveys are between $0.50 - $2.00.  Money expires in one year but if you contact them saying you've been trying and are active they will recredit you the money.  This has happened to me twice.  I have been paid twice now for $20 PayPal each.
They have a 3-tier referral program where you earn 10% and 5% of the revenue from your referrals and their referrals.
Please note that if you are a member of Panda Research, InboxPay, MindsPay, and Vindale they are all owned by the same company and their surveys are linked.  Meaning if you do one survey from one of these panels you won't be able to do it with the other.  This is unfortunate since the dollar value is not the same for all five of these panels.  So try to do it with the one that gives you the most money, usually Survey Downline or Vindale.  

SurveySpot (Updated January 22, 2013)
Min cash out varies for reward. The rewards are:PayPal ($10), Amazon ($10), WebShop (varies gift cards) ($10), and iTunes ($10).  100 point = $1
I joined sometime in August '10.  I finally cashed out for the first time in December '12 when SurveySpot was doing a special on Amazon gift cards.  If you redeemed for one, they would also include a $1 MP3 Amazon credit!  I thought this was a great chance to finally cash out and so I did.  I redeemed as many points as I could and managed to claim $60 worth in Amazon gift cards (6,000 points).  This also gave me $6 worth in MP3 Amazon credit too!  This reward came with in less than a day after I redeemed for them.  Since then (December '12) I now have just 1,372 points in my account.  From December 1, 2012 until now (January 22, 2013), I attempted 59 surveys but only completed 11 of them.  The points range from 50 - 100 points.
I have done a couple product tests for them.  In fact, my most recent one awarded me a total of 1,000 points too!
Note: Surveyspot, Opinion World, and Opinion Outpost are all owned by the same company but I like  all of them.

Toluna (Updated December 4, 2013)

The rewards are checks for 75,000 points ($25 check), gift cards, and PayPal. They also have sweepstakes entry (500 points) and Gifties (virtual gifts that may become real = varies point values).  Points expire after 1 year from when you earned them and they will tell you when they expire so you don't lose them.
I have been a member for a few years. I have cashed out six times since 2010. One for $200 and the others for $100.
If you disqualify from a survey you get a sweepstakes entry. Last month I completed 43 surveys. The points range from 1,000 – 2,500 points. I have had a few over that but they are very rare surveys.  You get 100 points for each profile survey you complete and there are 11 of those. There are also quick votes which are just one question in length. A quick vote is usually just 15 points.  Some are worth more though.
I have done product tests for them.

VindaleResearch - Referral Link (Updated November 26, 2013)

Survey sites that are alright.

ask GFK
The rewards are merchandise which are not my favorite because I never know what I want to spend the points on or what is a good value either.
Since May 2011 till now (October 16, 2011) I have earned 12,940 points. In this time frame I took 60 surveys. If you don't qualify for a survey you'll get 15 or 25 points which I have done 23 times. Most surveys are worth 300 points which I have done 31 times. The other surveys were worth 125, 175, 225, 550, and 950. At first it wouldn't let me see the rewards or how many points I had for at least a month which I found odd. I do not know what I want to redeem my points for but I will need to redeem them some time next year as the points expire 18 months from when you earned them.
Possible rewards I'd like to redeem: Dinner and a Movie For Two - 9,375
Bean Project Bean Project Two Chili & Cornbread Bundle Bean Project - 13,019
Greyston Bakery Bakery Do-Goodie Box 6pc. Greyston Bakery - 13,263
Greyston Bakery Bakery Do Goodie Box 12pc Greyston Bakery - 20,063

Recently I've only been eligible for surveys worth $1. The surveys don’t come too often. My goal is the $25 Amazon gift card or Palpal..

BzzAgent
This isn’t a typical survey site. There are a few very easy short surveys that you can take and will always qualify for. They reward you will MyPoints when you complete those.
No real rewards. They reward you by letting you do campaigns for them. Which is basically they send you a sample of the product they want you to try and then give a review about it and tell others about. To get a higher status which lets you get into better campaigns and more of them you have to post reviews of products you like. This could be about anything really.
I joined in June 2010 and did the CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion campaign in August 2010. In April and May of 2011 I did two more campaigns.  I reviewed five SC Johnson products and two more CoverGirl products.

Weekly Trend Spot discussions award the top 1/500 contributors $10 each per discussion, and brand discussions award the top 1/25 contributors $10-$20 per discussion. You can also earn cash for submitting your reports from sample share and hosted party actions. Once you reach level 5 you will receive a 5% cash bonus for every $10 you earn. Also invited 5 friends earns you $5. They also have a points system but that's only to increase your level which will help you earn more money in time.
I have been a member for about 5 months now (September 2011) and am level 5 out of 7. I have 16,785 points, completed 428 actions, earned 17 badges, and have one stared discussion (which is good). However, I have only made $4 ($1 was from a friend referral, $1 was from joining, $2 was for winning the cash bonus from two quick hit).

Not exactly a survey site. This site sends you emails that you have to click on to receive 2 cents for each one. There are many ways to earn cash for example, taking surveys, completing offers, shopping, redeeming coupons, playing games, watching videos, and doing other tasks.
$30 min cash out via check
I started in May 2010 and have made $47.31 (October 12, 2011) from $5 signup bonus, $23.70 reading email (1188), $4.20 cash offers (5), $11.75 cash surveys (20), and $2.66 cash videos (114). There are other ways I could be making cash from them but this is doing the basic simple stuff. They also have sweepstakes drawings too. I need to cash out because once you request your first check you become a gold member and receive more benefits.

iPoll
$10 min cash out. Rewards are gift cards (including Amazon), PayPal,  magazines, or donations.
You receive a $5 signup bonus.  Since February of last year til now (February 2012)  I have taken about 177 surveys. Of that amount 139 were for sweepstakes entries, 3 were to update my profile and rewarded $0.10 or $0.25, and the remaining surveys (33) awarded between $0.25 - $2. I did get two surveys that rewarded $4 and $5.  Also two surveys they thought were complete actually ended up being invalid so I didn't receive the reward for both of those (they were only worth a $1 though).   By the way, a lot of the sweepstakes entrees were from really simple fast surveys.  I currently have  $107.20 in my account.  I will soon be cashing out for (2) $50 in Amazon Gift Card or Paypal.
June 3: I requested (2) $50 via PayPal.

iThink
$25 min cash out via Amazon, Paypal, donations or other giftcards.

LiveWire Research
Reward is a check for the amount of each survey you take.
I've been a member of LiveWire for over a year and each survey they mail out a check for the amount of the survey.  You usually take a pre-screener survey a few days before to see if you qualify for the actual survey.  Then if you qualify they email you the survey for which you would get paid to take.
***This survey site requires your Social Security Number.  Please read their FAQs for their explanation as to why they need it.  Even though this is a requirement I still feel this is a good survey site.  I did receive five checks from them in 2012.  Most of them were worth $5.

L'Oreal USA Consumer Participation Program
There are several ways to participate: studies conducted at their testing center in Clark, New Jersey, on-line surveys, and test products mailed to your home for testing and evaluation. You are rewarded with beauty/personal care products(s) which is determined by length and type of study. I have been a member since October 2010 and on January 2012 I finally received my first product to test out. On February 1st, I received my reward for the test product I did.  The reward was Lancome Paris Renergie Eye Multiple Action.

Memolink - Referral link
Not exactly a survey site but they do email out surveys and there is a section where you can take surveys to earn points. Other ways to earn points are shopping, redeeming coupons, playing games and completing tasks.
Rewards are gift cards, Paypal, and donations. Rewards vary in points for example: $10 check = 19,200, $25 PayPal = 43,200, and Amazon gift card is the same. The higher the dollar amount the better the value ($250 = 403,200 points)
Joined in February 2011 and so far have 10,886 points. For the past 45 days (August 29, 2011 - October 13, 2011) I have read read 36 emails (6 points), played games to get 10 points max three days, tried 129 surveys (1 - 6 points each) and a few other things to get points. During that time I completed one easy offer for 600 points and completed one survey for 540 points. I haven't decided on when I want to cash out or for what yet but I plan to wait as long as I can to get the best value. They also have a Memogold program where you get more benefits but you have to shop or complete offers in order to become a member which only lasts for six months anyway and then you have to reactivate your status.

U.S. Military Shopper Community
500 points ($5) min cash out rewarded as Amazon giftcard.
I joined earlier this year (2011) and have 750 points from taking six surveys (October 15, 2011). I plan to cash out when I get 1,000 points.
NOTE: This is members I think this is for military families as sometimes they do ask about shopping at the military commissary.


MindField

$5 min cash out via check, PayPal, or Amazon Gift Cards.
*Updated* I have been credited for 12 surveys and now have $24 in my account.  I did two test products with them last year.
I started in June and have completed many surveys for them but have only qualified for two. Surveys range from $1 - $4. My total so far is $2.
Each survey you take enters you into their sweepstakes.

MyOpinionNow - Referral link
2,000 point min cash out. Rewards are merchandise or check 2,000 = $20
I joined in August 2010 and just have 1220 points and completed 12 surveys.
I did do a test product for them though. I plan to cash out for the check when I reach $20.

MyPoints - Referral link
This isn’t exactly a survey site but they do have surveys you can take for 50 points each and 10 if you disqualify. You earn points for shopping, reading emails (5 points for each one), playing games, searching the web, redeeming coupons, taking surveys, and other ways.
I became of member because BzzAgent gave MyPoints for taking their surveys so it was natural to join this as well. Since June 2010 I have made 8,186 points (October 15, 2011). Most of my points are just from clicking on the emails (86) they send me (not all emails they send reward you points (66)). Other points I received are from taking surveys (75 and 100). I mostly disqualify for them thouse which are worth 10 points. I also have done a few of the offers in the bonus mail which are worth between 10 and 25 points. They now have videos you can watch for 1 to 3 points each. The BzzAgent points are usually 3 points each when I complete a survey from BzzAgent. All of this was the activity from a three month time frame (August - October 15 2011)
Rewards are giftcards, paypal, and donations. $10 is about 1600 points depending on the reward. I am not sure what I want to spend my points on yet.

Only Cash Surveys
$20 min cash out. Rewards are Paypal, gift cards, or donations.
Since January 2011 till now (October 15, 2011) I have $13.50. You get a $5 sign up bonus. The rest of the amount is from nine surveys I have completed which rewarded $0.50 to $1.50. I have done more surveys than that but have disqualified. They do show the percent chance of you completing the survey which is nice. My goal is to cash out at for Amazon or Paypal when I hit $25.

Palm Research - Referral Link (Updated February 12, 2013)
$10 PayPal or Check that they auto send to you.
I joined in November '11.  They send out daily surveys for you to day or you can go to their site to take them.  In December '12 they sent out my first check for $15.70.  Almost all of the surveys are worth $1.  I currently have $11 in my account.

Pure Profile
$25 min cash out that is directly deposited into your bank account.
I joined back in May 2011 and have made $3.45 (October 15, 2011). Most of my rewards was for completing my profile. The best way to get rewarded is by clicking the red NextButton as you'll get points for keeping your profile up to date for ten cents each. The only caution about this site is that they directly deposit the money into your bank account. Right now I'm just going to accumulate my points and hopefully they'll change the rewards when I want to cash out.

QSample - Referral link
500 points ($10) min cash out as cash or Amazon giftcard.
I started in April and have 260 points. I have completed four surveys.

RewardPort Surveys
$25 min cash out. Rewards are Paypal, giftcards, or donations.
Since January 2011 till now (October 15, 2011) I have made $26.25. $5 are from signing up. I have completed 12 surveys which rewarded $0.50 - $2.00. Recently I have completed two surveys that were worth $8 for doing a week long Touchpoint activity where you needed to text in your responses. The very short surveys only reward an entry into the Ipod sweepstakes which I have done three times. My goal is for the $50 Amazon or Paypal reward.

RewardTV
Min cash out varies for reward. Use your points for entries in sweepstakes, use your points to bid in auctions, or spend your points in the shopping spree (for giftcards). Example: The next shopping spree will be on March 2 at 3PM EST. They will be giving away (15) $10 Applebee’s giftcards for 300,000 points, (65) $5 Taco Bell gift cards for 150,000 points, and (10) $25 JCPenny giftcards for 750,000 points. There are only two shopping sprees each week.
I started in August 2010. I mainly just do the bonus surveys which are always the same and boring. The points range from 2,500 to 7,500 points. You get 5,000 points just for registering. I have a total of 1,926,300 points that I have earned.
Since January 2011 till now (October 15, 2011) I have taken about 292 bonus surveys. You can also play the trivia game for more points but they are based on certain TV shows that have recently played on cable channels.
Points earned expire at the end of the calendar year following the calendar year in which they are earned (example: point earned on April 1, 2009 will expire on December 31, 2010). Lately I've been trying the shopping spree but have had no luck. I need to get rewarded at least once in it so my points from last year won't expire.  *Update (January 22, 2012): I still have not been able to use my points except for entering the sweepstakes.  At the end of this month my points that I earned in 2010 will expire.  I have decided to just use up my points in the sweepstakes and when they are all gone probably cancel my account and put this in the "Stay Away" section of this survey list.

SheSpeaks
Not a survey site but you can test product from them.
I joined in September 2010 and did one test which was to watch a new program that was coming out on the OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network Program. They also have a lot of Twitter parties where you can win prizes.

Smiley360 - Referral link
Not exactly a survey site. It is a word of mouth program. They send you a free product for you to test and then you tell others your opinion of that product.
Joined in July 2010 and did my first mission (RelaxZen NIGHT) in December 2010.
Smiles are the currency system to gain rewards like improving your status, opportunity to serve as a Smile360 brand manager, and become a “Featured Fan.”

Socratic Forum
$5 min cash out via check.
I joined in September 2010 and have made $18 from completing 7 surveys (October 16, 2011). The rewards from each survey range from $1 - $3. I'll probably cash out when I reach $20.

Springboard America
$50 min cash out via check or donation
Since December 2010 till now (October 16, 2011) I have earned $20.00. I have taken 65 surveys, 12 of which I completed. The survey rewards ranged from $1 - $3. I plan to cash out when I reach $50.

SurveySavvy - Referral link
$1 min cash out by check.
So far I have completed 9 surveys and have $14 (October 16, 2011). Survey rewards range is $1 - $3. I plan to cash out when I reach $20.

Swagbucks - Referral Link

Not really a survey site but there are surveys you can do to earn swagbucks.
There are many ways to earn swagbucks for example searching the web, shopping, voting daily, watching videos, completing special offers, finding swag codes, and playing games. You use your swagbucks to get rewards like giftcards and merchandise. The amount of swagbucks earned varies on what activity you are doing. Also swagbucks spent varies on what you want.
I signed up in June 2010 and have earned 2,080 Swagbucks (October 16, 2011) which is low. You get 30 points just for signing up. Most of my points are from doing the Daily Polls, NOSO, and Trusted Surveys most days. I do search to get rewarded too at times. The best day to search is on Friday as you get rewarded more on that day. The emails they send you are on their website only which I'm not a big fan of. I have done the easy offers and also watch some videos to earn more points. I'm told the $5 Amazon Gift Card is one of the best rewards for 450 Swagbucks which I'll probably redeem soon.

Viewpoints
Not a survey company but a review site where they send you products test them out and tell others about your experience. Every Monday you can sign up to receive a product to review. I have signed up for many but only have received one. It was a sample size that I tested so I was disappointed.
They have a V.I.P program where you earn points for a status. Also they do have programs where if you write a certain amount of reviews in a certain time frame they will give you an Amazon gift card.

Vocalabs
 Each survey that you complete is sent straight to PayPal.
I joined in September and have completed one survey that had a reward of $1.

YouGov America (Updated February 12, 2013)
Rewards are merchandise, Amazon Gift Card, and a check ($100 check = 100,000 points). Lowest item is a tote bag at 17,500 points.
Joined around in September '10 and finally cashed out in December '12 for a $100 check.   Since November '12 till now (February 12, 2013) I have completed about 33 surveys.  Most surveys are worth 500 points with a few that are worth 1,000 points.  I currently 9,500 points.

ZoomBucks - Referral link
Not a survey company but they do send surveys which give you 50 points if you complete them. They also have other ways to earn points for example: shopping, searching, reading emails, promo codes, doing tasks, visiting their site. Their rewards are gift cards. 2,000 points ($10) is the min cash out.
Joined in January and have 753 points. I have claimed about 7 promotional code which range in points of 6 – 20. They are usually easy and fun. I have completed about 9 surveys which have a point value of 50 points.&
They have a referral program where you earn 10% point value of whoever you referred when they earn points.



Top Least Favorite Survey Sites

AIP Online Surveys
500 points ($5) min cash out rewarded as Paypal or giftcard (currently BestBuy).
I joined in March and have only made 22 points. I have taken four surveys for 2 points each (this was probably for disqualifying) and three (one for 5) points for completing my four profiles. Points will expire after 1 year from the last date you logged in to a survey or your "My Page".


American Consumer Opinion - Referral link

UPDATE: They have changed their site and how you earn points.  It's much better now!  
$10 min. cash out sent as check
Surveys don’t come often enough and I haven’t qualified since I joined.
I did make $5 for winning a sweepstakes though.



ClixSense - Referral link

Actually haven't had the time to join but it sounds similar to other paid to click sites.

Keynote
I have only completed one survey for them back in April. I received a $10 Amazon gift card. Basically you evaluate a site for them. You do need to download their addon to take their surveys though and you have to complete the evaluation in Internet Explorer.

National Consumer Panel (Nielsen Home Scan Consumer Panel)

Earn points for transmitting your scans and also taking surveys. I have 1950 points. Lowest reward is 9,000 points. The rewards are merchandise.
I got my scanner in February 2011 and had issues transmitting my scans from the start.   I contacted them and nothing seemed to work.  I had to return the scanner since I moved to Alaska and they don't do service up here.  However, I could never get the scanner to work for me anyway so I was thinking of opting out anyway.   In the end I had to cancel my membership.

NPD Online Research
Earn points which you can use to enter sweepstakes. Prizes are cash and other merchandise.
I joined in September and have 4,025 points. Just for the past two months I have taken 15 surveys. Each survey rewards 25 points and 30 or 60 (got 100 and 500 once) in the instant bonus after you complete a survey.  This isn't the greatest company since all they have are sweepstakes entries which are not really worth the time.  I may just stay in the panel until all my points have been used up in the sweepstakes and then cancel my account.  Once I do this I'll then place this on the "Stay Away" section.

Panda Research - Referral Link
PandaResearch
$50 min cash out by Paypal
They send you emails with a survey on it. You get 5, 10, 15 cents just for clicking the email. The surveys are not real surveys. They are complete an offer to get paid. Then you evaluate the offer.
I signed up in November 2010 and have $9.83 so far. You get $3 as a sign up bonus and I have only completed 3 offers. Most of my money will be coming from the paid emails as I have $3.33 from that now. They also send you the same offer and while you can do it again you will not be compensated a second time. You also have to use Internet Explorer in order to win through their offers otherwise they don’t guarantee that you’ll get paid. I didn’t know this so some of the offers I did may not have counted. I also noticed after doing some of their offers I received a lot of emails that went to my spam folder. Ever since I’ve stopped doing their offers that has stopped.  By the way, they are owned by the same company as InboxPays and MindsPay both of which I have tried and canceled my account.  This one has not changed it policy yet about it's paid emails which is why I still find them ok. 

TestSpin
10,000 points ($10) min cash out. Rewards are Paypal, Amazon gift cards and merchandise.
Started in August and have only completed 6 surveys that ranged in point value of 1,000 – 2,000. I have a total of 7,250 points. I have been disqualified from many of their surveys.

Valued Opinions

I have tried to sign up for this one but for some reason it won't let me sign up for it. You may have better luck than I.


STAY AWAY!!!

Finger on the Pulse - Added March 5, 2015
Don't remember when I joined but all they offer for a reward are sweepstakes entrees.  I have never won a prize from them for the amount of time I was a member.  Sweepstakes entrees are not worth my time anymore for how many survey sites I belong to.

5in5Now

Joined last month and all I've gotten from them is over 100 emails of scams. They are very similar to the survey panel below called Paid To Try except you don't even start with the $5 bonus which is odd since that is part of their name. They do have a referral system if you want to be mean. Do not do this one it is definitely not even worth your time.  The Better Business Bureau gave them a F, the worst score possible.

Survey Panel Group
Joined in February and all I've gotten from them was spam and offers to join survey sites I was already a member of. I just unsubscribed as they were a waste of my time. Nothing good came from them.

Global Survey Group
Joined back in February and all I've gotten from them was spam and offers to join survey sites I was already a member of. I just unsubscribed as they were a waste of my time. Nothing good came from them.  The Better Business Bureau gave them a F, the worst score possible.

Get Paid To Try
NOT to be confused with the survey company that's named the same (and has the same color scheme).
This site while it's easy to make the $5 bonus it's hard to get the rest unless you want to sign up for scam and survey sites that I'm already a member of. Their payout is $20 and no real easy way to get it besides what I just stated. It's not really worth the time and I'll probably unsubscribe real soon. I've only been a member for about a month or so though. The Better Business Bureau gave them a F, the worst score possible.

InboxPays
Just like MindsPay (see below) I have decided to cancel my account for basically the same reasons.  They did get a better score (B-) from the The Better Business Bureau but the opinions from others recently was not good.  They also changed their policy in how much you can get from the paid emails. 

MindsPay 
*Update* I have decided to cancel my account. They changed their policy in how much you can get from the paid emails without much notice. I had close to the cash out when I learned about this and now my balance is about $30. Since I would have to do their "offers" and none of them interested me or they didn't work for me I figured it was a waste of my time. Plus I did another search of them and found really bad comments about them recently. Here is what the The Better Business Bureau had to say about them and gave them C+.
$50 min cash out via Paypal.
You get paid by completing their offers and reading emails. I just do the emails and have made $43.74 already since I started in June 2011 - October 15, 2011. A tip I learned from reading emails is if you read at least one a day you will get sent more soon after that are worth more! I plan to cash out when I hit $50.
