Springboard America is a well-respected survey company that actually has some interesting surveys to take. They're short, to the point, and easy to answer.  It's a good balance having this in your survey portfolio because the topics are usually very different than most survey companies. By joining Springboard, one of America’s leading online research communities, you’ll become eligible to receive invitations to their surveys, earn Survey Dollars and to help shape America’s future! The company behind the panel is Vision Critical. They are a major global research firm with some pretty big-name clients like Jet Blue, CBS, and Discovery. They’ve been around for more than ten years now

Unlike most survey panels which like to get started with some personal information from prospective panelists, you will be about your views on a number of subjects. You must be an American resident and be 14 years or older.

Most of its surveys award between $0.50 and $5 if you qualify and complete them. They’ll always let you know in the survey invitation how much you’ll receive for completing it, or if there is a sweepstakes. When you reach $50 in your virtual account, you can redeem your Survey Dollars for a personal check, have the money transferred to your PayPal account, request a Amazon E-Gift cards, make a donation to a US charitable organization.

All you do is visit the website here. Then, fill out some basic demographic information this is something that most survey panels you join are going to ask you to do. They need to know a little about you in order to determine which surveys they need you to take. Once you’ve done that, you’ll see a screen saying they’ve sent a confirmation email to you. Click the link in the confirmation email and then you’re officially a Springboard panelist.

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!
