Has anyone ever been paid to take surveys? I went to that snagajob.com site. Anyone have any comments on it?

Depends. How much do I get, how long does the survey take, and how long until I get my money?

I've earned about $30 doing online surveys.

the anne perks is most of that, and I have a lot of 'hipoints' to be redeemed with harris poll. This is over a period of a year maybe a year and a half. After I found a few to do and lost the time to do them, I didn't look them up as much. There's one called cedar something that is supposed to pay well, but they don't always have open application times.

My mom got a check recently for 20 dollars doing a 2 page consumer survey.

if only she could get more of them...

Doesn't seem like a bad deal, but I've always been wary that they're a bit of a con to shove advertising down your throat to your e-mail/home address. Never really had any desire to do any more.

I got paid on Second Life for doing it. (look up Hippie Pay, for those of you who are playing it)

Harris Poll Online | Welcome (http://www.harrispollonline.com/)

You get "hi-points" for completing surveys. i've gotten like 2500 so far, and there's a lot of things I've thought about getting, but I'm holding out to make sure it's a worthwhile thing, because it takes so long to get the points xD

(it's kinda like marlboro miles if any of you recall those)

Ouch!

I've been paid to take part in a medical study which involved a survey. Does that count?

I've been paid to surf the intertubes. You just install this giant (relatively) toolbar and it records your surfing habits and stuff.

I tricked it using a mouse macro and toggled between two of my webpages at night so I can log lots of hours.

Dunno what happened with it to be honest.

I was in the mall one time and a stranger told me I could earn twenty bucks if I took a survey about alcohol. I agreed so he took me into a scary back room, I took the survey in about an hour, and then he wrote me a check. That was awesome.

I got paid $20 to have an MRI while taking a survey thing. They let me keep the pictures of my brain.

I haven't yet. I'm waiting to see how many I can amass. They're mostly things like books or usb drives or dvds or whatever. magazine subscriptions.
