The world of online surveys is so confusing, simply because there are just so many survey companies. In this article, we will be talking about Survey Spot.
Company: Survey Spot
Owner: Survey Sampling International
How It Works
After signing up, you will be able to take surveys in exchange for points, with each point equaling one cent. Surveys typically take 15-30 minutes, with a reward of 50 points.Occasionally, it can be higher or lower. You will also get several survey invites each day via email.
Points can be redeemed for gift cards at Amazon, iTunes, or airline miles. You can also cash it to your PayPal account. Payout starts at 500 points, or $5, for Amazon gift cards, but if you want cash through PayPal you need a minimum of 1000 points, or $10.
If you get disqualified from a survey, you get one entry into a drawing for a cash prize. (I think of $10,000.)
Who Is Survey Spot For
Survey Spot works well for people with some extra time on their hands and are willing to answer surveys to make a couple extra bucks a week.
>Q: How easy is it to qualify for a survey?
Answer: From my own experience, (everyone might be different,) it’s actually easier to be qualified than some other survey companies I’ve tried. You’ll still be disqualified, probably more often than not, but they’re pretty good at disqualifying you earlier on in the survey, rather than later (although it does happen).
>Q: How well does it work on mobile devices?
Answer: Their website itself works very well on mobile devices, as do most of the surveys. However, some surveys will tell you at the beginning that you need a desktop/Windows/Mac. Some surveys will include watching a video, so you might want to keep that in mind.
Some Pros & Cons…
+Pro: Very low payout requirement.
+Pro: Not terrible when it comes to disqualifications (compare to other companies.)
-Con: Surveys can oftentimes take longer than expected.
-Con: Usually not more than 50 points/cents per survey.
-Con: Very low earning potential.
So… Is Survey Spot Worth It?? Can It Really Be True?
Well, it depends on a few things. If you’re looking to make additional income to support yourself, pay your bills, or whatever, then no, Survey Spot is not worth your time; as you will not qualify for all the surveys, you probably won’t make more than a dollar an hour, tops.
But, if you’re oftentimes lying in bed, fiddling with the radio dial with one hand and mindlessly browsing the web on your phone with the other, and you’re willing to take surveys in that time in order to make some extra pocket cash, then yes, Survey Spot might be for you.
However, take my advice: Don’t go overboard. If you’re aiming for a certain amount of money/points each day, you’re opening yourself up to a lot of frustration, as it will take much longer than you think. Instead, consider making yourself a limit; for example, you’ll try 5 surveys a day max; if you’re qualified, good for you. If not, forget about Survey Spot for the rest of the day.
By doing this, you’ll save yourself from a lot of frustration and aggravation. Eventually, your points will add up, and as the payout is relatively low, it won’t be that long before you can cash out.
Survey Spot is legit. Actually, it’s not a bad survey site. However, don’t get your hopes high, as the most you’ll make is some extra spending cash.
