Is Vindale Research a SCAM or a legitimate paid surveys company? That’s what we’ll explore here!
How It Works
Vindale Research is basically a website where you (supposedly) get paid to complete surveys.
Upon signing up, you will automatically get $2 credited to your account, and after that, you can choose surveys from a list. The surveys range from around 10-30 minutes and offer rewards of around 20 cents to $1.50 per survey.
Payouts are made to your PayPal account twice a month, provided that you’ve reached a balance of $50.
You’ll also receive a number of email survey-invites daily.
Well, that’s how it’s supposed to work, anyway.
If you have already tried out a number of online survey companies, you’re likely already familiar with the scenario: You start taking a survey and get your hopes high only to find out, after answering the tenth question, that based upon your answer you’ve been disqualified from that survey.
You see, not everyone qualifies for every survey. Companies doing the surveys only want people who meet certain criteria. They find out whether or not you meet those criteria by asking you a few starting questions. Unfortunately, this process sometimes takes too long and you end up answering a lot of questions for nothing.
Vindale Research also has HUGE problems with their system. Many times you start a survey and then all of a sudden they tell you that’s it’s closed or already has too many participants.
Their listings are also often incorrect, as the time amount and reward amount tend to change once you’ve been redirected to the survey.
How Much Money Can I Make And How Long Does It Take?
I don’t really think you’ll be able to get much money from this. I certainly wouldn’t put in any time at all trying out a survey, as there would be a very good chance of being disqualified.
So, Is Vindale Research Worth It? Can It Really Be True?
I do not think so.
You could literally spend hours starting surveys and being disqualified in the middle. Even if you do manage to make some money, payouts start at $50, so you will have a long way to go. Besides, there are many online complaints about Vindale Research (see Consumer Affairs, for example).
In addition, based on my own frustrating experience at Vindale Research, I would NOT advise you to expect to make money with this thing.
AlthoughVindale Research is not a scam, I do not recommend it for you.
You could do much better things with your time.
That’s just one man’s opinion.
