SurveySpot is an online paid research company, that rewards panel members for participating in a wide variety of interesting surveys. These surveys and polls are conducted to gain insight opinions to help companies make improvements on offered products and services. Your assistance is very valuable, and therefore your participation will not go unrewarded. They pay out between $2 to $10 per completed survey, and since 2001 they've reported paying out over twelve million dollars in cash and prizes to their members.  The panel itself is relatively simple to use, and once you create your account you will begin to receive surveys by email. The good thing about them is that the emails they send out include critical information about each survey.  For instance they will let you know the subject matter, estimated time of completion, and the reward format. The time it takes to complete an online survey will vary, however most surveys offered by SurveySpot take between 10-15 minutes to complete.

Surveyspot offers a variety of reward options to its members. This includes airline miles, Amazon e-vouchers, iTunes e-vouchers, and cash paid to member's PayPal accounts. New members automatically receive an entry into the $25,000 cash sweepstakes. Additional entries are awarded each time a survey is successfully completed. Rewards Redemption For e-vouchers, generally a member will receive their requested e-voucher within 48 hours of request. For physical vouchers, generally a member will receive it within 10 business days of request.

That last aspect is very important, since SurveySpot pays out in cash and in Instant Win Game tokens.  This allows members that only want to do for cash surveys to skip prize paying studies. However, sometimes it's worth completing a non-cash survey because there's a chance for a follow up cash offer. One thing that SurveySpot members appreciate is that in most cases when they don't qualify for a survey they still get a sweepstakes entry or Instant Win Game token simply for trying.  This is a nice touch since this happens to almost everyone at least once.

They typically send a a variety of surveys, mostly sweepstake surveys, that give you a chance to play instant win games. Don’t worry, they are still like the cash surveys. Surveyspot also has higher paying surveys and online focus groups you can participate in. They have an easy-to-navigate website, where members can check surveys available, payment history, and also request payments, etc. I have been paid a few times with no problem. Surveyspot is very good at paying members in a timely manner.

Be patient at the beginning. At first you will receive a lot of sweepstakes surveys, which weren’t many I qualified for. Cash surveys will come if you are willing to stick around them and you will qualify for more surveys. Log into your account frequently to check  and check available surveys, you may receive good paying surveys and focus groups. Overall, SurveySpot is a legitimate paid survey site, and I highly recommend them!

Harris Poll Online

HPOL is operated by Harris Interactive, a market research firm headquartered in New York that was founded in 1975 by Dr. Gordon S. Black. Harris Interactive was originally called the Gordon S. Black Corporation. However, after acquiring Louis Harris & Associates from the Gannett Corporation in 1996, the company’s name was changed to Harris Black International Ltd.

HP conducts market research studies in a wide range of industries, across the globe from Europe,US, Asia and beyond. As you would expect from such a big firm, the company is a member of some of the biggest and most well known marketing research organizations such as the British Polling Council, US National Council of Public Polls, the US Council for Marketing and Opinion Research, the Council of American Survey Research Organizations and the UK Market Research Society.

It is obvious that not only is this a legitimate company, it is actually one of the leaders in the research industry. Registration with Harris Poll is just like any other survey site. Anyone with a valid mailing and email address at or over the age of 13 can join for free. There is the sign up possess where you supply your personal information such as name, user name, email, password etc, and then you have to tell them about yourself in Profile survey Although these profile surveys are boring, they are very practical and beneficial when it comes to getting invited to surveys you actually qualify for. They use this information to match available surveys to you.

When you sign up you’ll be automatically included in the sites appreciation program.Through this program you can earn HIpoints that can be exchanged for rewards just for doing surveys. What I really liked about the site was that as soon as I registered, there was a survey available for me. And what I noticed was that before I started the survey, it told me approximately how long it would take me to complete it, the exact number of points I could earn , and also how much points I could expect if I didn’t qualify. I should mention that not only you get few points for surveys you don’t qualify for, you will also be entered into HIstakes quarterly drawing On average members will receive invitations to a few surveys every month that can take between 5 and 25 minutes to complete and rewarding the user with varying amounts of reward points.
The reward structure is different, this site doesn’t pay it’s panelists in cash. Instead, they’ve set up their own proprietary system known as HIpoints. Like most other survey sites, they allow you to redeem HIpoints for rewards, ranging from gift cards to electronics. They also have monthly sweepstakes with a grand prize of $10,000.

Finally,Harris Poll Online is a very reputable survey company that actually pays their members for completing their online surveys. Their parent company has been around for 45 years and has gained a reputation of trust and integrity.There are no cash incentives with Harris, but they do have a very nice selection of gift certificates and other rewards from major online merchants. All in all they are a great survey company that is worth doing surveys for if you are willing to invest a little bit of time building up your points to get a decent prize. I hope this Harris Poll Online review has helped you with your decision to join Harris. Sign up for an account and try a survey or 2 until you can get at least a small prize. If you do not like them you can always cancel your free account and move on to another survey company
