I like Harris Polls as well. I have used a few others like Lightspeed, and Opinion Outpost. I would suggest avoiding another one called Vindale. It often pays nothing or little for a service you have to sign up for then cancel, which to me is time not well spend on hold calling a customer service line.

Slightly relate is Amazon’s Vine program that is invitation only for members that write reviews and get helpful votes. I can just suggest that you review what you buy on Amazon (and elsewhere).

Those are some pretty decent sites, but TangoTreasure is Definitely the best…. out of all the surveys sites available..

I personally make a living with this site!!! (http://www.tangotreasure.com/)

I definitely think that My Points is the best for online sites, you get email daily which you click though to earn points and the rewards are great

Harris is good, another good one is at http://www.fgiresearch.com, they are a respectable marketing research firm that pay through paypal or sweepstakes for the surveys you take. I have received fast and reliable compensation from there for a year now.

I’ve made a few bucks from Cashcrate, however I think CashLagoon is slightly better. On CashLaggon I made 20 bucks in one week doing 1-2 surveys a day (1 survey = 10 min). The great thing about CashLagoon is that if you have 0.01 points (= 0.01 dollar) you can get paid instantly throug PayPal :)

Hey guys this is the one that actually pays, its pretty cool all you have to do is search and you get points and with that point you can get what you want.

hello I have a few things to ask:
Is it possible to create an account in the US and use it in any other country I travel to? Will I still be receiving surveys as a US citizen? If it is possible, I can ask my daughter in the USA to open an account for me.
I am now in Mongolia and joined several different survey sites here in Ulaanbaatar and the problem is everytime i log in and check for surveys it ALWAYS says there are no available surveys in your country(Itís been 2 months since I joined the survey sites). How can I fix this?
Do you have any idea if I can register Ulaanbaatar as my second desk?
Please help me.

I use them all! But surveysavvy is by far my favorite. They pay me in cash and I earn a little extra every month just for telling my friends about them.

I use i-say.com also I use http://isayanswers.blogspot.com/ to help me get more chances to win in the poll predictor game.

My favorite are Zoompanel (who give you points to spend on prizes, and points for attempting surveys even if you don’t qualify), SurveySavvy (I’ve received multiple paypal payments from them), Inboxdollars (getting a $27 check in the mail, only took a few months!), and opinionplace (where you can get multiple surveys from weekly, and immediate paypal cash rewards). Mindfield is also great and secure, but hard to qualify for. Buzzback surveys are hard to get, but with a great payout per survey.

I’m a member of a couple of survey sites you have listed here but not all of them. There are some great sites here which payout well and are legit. I’ll have to check out the other survey sites I’m not a member of in your list. Thanks for sharing. I really like GPT sites though and have worked on them for years and made some good extra cash. I’d recommend giving them a shot. There are some good ones listed on my blog along with tips and tricks to help complete GPT offers. If you like check them out.

cash111 is a very good site which pays through paypal i get over $100 a week so it is pretty good for a site.

legerweb pays $1 to $5 per survey and sends many surveys per week.What i like most about the site is you always qualify for their surveys so for me this is the best survey site.

OpinionOutpost and SurveySpot are very good as far as payment amounts go. ValuedOpinions is good also. There’s a big list of good ones along with their payout options/minimums here: http://www.surveyearnings.net/?page_id=104

Points2shop is by far my favorite it has mainly products from amazon and if its not on there you can copy the page url from amazon and they will order it for u. You can also make money but i perfer points and u can get them fast and easily if you know how. I have already recieved 2 lounger pool floats, a baby pool float, 2 dermarollers, frozen feeder mice for my snake, and an led shower head. They have much more too and i really enjoy this survey site its the only one i use now.

I’m a member of a couple now, but none of them pay that well
My fav so far is Crowdology USA – they have a low payout so you can get your money out quicker

I’ve discovered a new survey site called <a href=”http://www.dollaropinions.com”>DollarOpinions.com</a>
