My husband gets like 10 surveys from this company a day. Every time i log into his account though, it doesnt show he has any money. He says he has qualified for quite a few of there money surveys but mainly just ALOT of sweepstakes entries. My questions: how long does it take to show you've qualified for money surveys and when are these sweeps drawings and has ne one ever won from them?

It does take awhile. Btw, I got a check in the mail today from them for $59. When you log into your/his account, there will be text saying 'you have new unclaimed rewards' so you don't actually have to go into the account balance to see if anything has been deposited there. I had a chuckle today at the post office. I was at the window sending a package, and opened up the check while I was there. I was surprised to see it was a check, and the clerk said to me, oh, um, is that for surveys? surveyspot.com? I laughed and said yea. So she asked me if I did surveys, etc. and I gave her the url to this site and to Greenfield. She had been wondering if surveys were all scams :P

Do ya'll ever get the feeling that the paid surveys they ask you all the questions they really want to know, and then cut you off and tell you you didn't qualify? I give up on this company I just took one for Betty Crocker Warm Delight Mini's - they asked a lot of questions and yes it took about the 15 min they said it would and asked classification questions - and then POP sorry you didn't qualify!!!

I'm sorry, that is always so frustrating! I've had this happen with other companies but I don't think I've had it happen with SurveySpot. They've been one of my biggest earners and have always been good to pay me.

That $75 Keynote Tax Preperation survey back in February Did anyone get paid for that? I contacted SurveySpot on Thursday about the fact that I hadn't been paid for that $75 session and on Friday I magically got $10 added to my account with no survey number or date assigned to it Did that happen to anyone else? :confused:

I quit using them as I never qualified for the paid ones but got tons and tons of the sweepstakes ones. Too annoying for me when there are good paying sites out there.

I've been getting tons of sweepstakes entries as well. I used to get a lot of paid surveys, but that's a rarity nowadays. It bums me out. I used to make tons of $$ through them :(

it ebbs and flows for me....now im in a high with them meaning that im getting alot of ones that im qualifying for that are paying ones....then a lot of the ones that dont pay outright, those have turned into product tests....and sometimes those turn out to pay in the end. just keep in mind that it comes and goes as with any survey company and just be patient :):)

I am at my wits end w/them. Almost every survey that comes that is a paying one the last several months, the link doesn't work. I have reported it and my frustration at this problem, but all I manage to get is their "canned" response that they have given me an entry into the sweepstakes. Well so freakin' what, about every 3rd time i do the sweeps I end up w/100 entries into the sweepstakes but have yet to ever even see a list of the winners (guess I get sidetracked when I start to look for them), but I guess my point is 1 more entry doesn't help much. Does anyone have any suggestions as to something I might be doing wrong or is it a problem that SurveySpot has frequently? I never have any problems w/the links in their sweeps.

I will try dumping the temp files again but it hasn't helped before. The only thing I have ever used is IE. I have pasted the link instead of just clicking on it but that doesn't work either. In the last 3 or 4 days I have gotten probably 4 that were paying ones, & none went thru. 2 just wouldn't open & the usual happened w/the other where it went to the screen that tells you that the survey you are looking for isn't available right now. I know that they send to so many that they get overloaded & I guess that isn't as bothersome as the links that don't seem to work, esp when it always is the ones that pay money. I just can't help but wonder if it doesn't "sku" the results, but maybe it only happens to a few ppl & not a whole bunch.

For some reason now, I am no longer getting SurveySpot invitations. The last time I did was a few weeks ago, and all 4 invitations took me to the signup page rather than the surveys...

It makes me think that they have cancelled my membership, which wouldn't make sense cause I've done nothing wrong (and I can still sign into the main page and see my earnings). I have emailed their tech support, so hopefully that helps, but I'd be really bummed if they screwed me over and I can't take surveys from them anymore... has anyone else had this problem?


I never wait for surveys to come, I log in all the time and take the surveys offered there, usually do 2-3 sweeps and then a paying one will pop up and it seems that by logging in often and taking a few surveys increases the good paying ones emailed to me also of which I do really good, I just had a $35 one emailed to me and a $20 paying one by logging in and doing two free surveys..
