I’ve been signing up for surveys since 4/06 and
they all take me to an offer section or an incentive program, which really mean I haveto pay for something first. Either I don’t qualify for
them or I can’t click on the confirmation link.
Are all the popular survey sites bogus? I need ex-
tra cash!!!

SurveySavvy.com is on the Better Business Bureau site, as well as the research company that runs it. I’d say that one’s legitimate. Other than that, yeah, they’re mostly scams.
If you get an offer for one, check it out on the BBB website (http://www.bbb.org/) – if the company is legitimate and based in the U.S. it’ll show up. If it doesn’t, it’s probably a scam.

NPDOR is on the BBB as NPD Group. Has anyone won any cash/prizes from the SweepLand games from the points you gain by taking the surveys?

Yes, i won 100.00 from sweepland but i still have not cashed it because I don’t know if it is a legit check or not. It looks real but I’m not sure. Has anyone actually cashed one of these checks?

This free trial stuff, is a scam. I thought that when you have a free trial, you get to try the product for at least 30 days. It seems to me you only get 14 days or so, and before you know it they are deducting money out of your account. They don’t give you a chance to say wither or not you really like the product, before that have you tied up in a membership.

I like Harris Poll the best. (harrispollonline.com) Instead of a barely-existant chance to win something, you receive points after each survey that you can save up to spend on a huge list of items. I have redeemed points and received a few things, and it has yet to let me down.

I had a good experience with GreenfieldOnline.com. Although most surveys offer only entries into a sweepstakes, I did receive an invitation once to participate in an online focus group. It took about an hour and, though it took a number of weeks, eventually I got my check for $20 and cashed it no problem. I don’t do the surveys very often, though, so someone who is more avid may have even better results. I also registered at OpinionOutpost.com, where you get points for the surveys at an exchange rate of 10 pts = $1. Most surveys I see are in the range of 10-30 pts, however I have not tried yet to cash any out so I can’t vouch for that. SurveySpot.com is another I know of, but haven’t tried to get money, yet, either.

most r pretty much all scams. i did surveys in person in chicago and was paid $25 – $75 most took a half an hour or hour, so did my kids and other family members — that was testing food products. They were legit and paid even if u showed up and didnt use you cuz they always over book. Sum werer conducted at the John Hancok Building those paid $100. th ones on the internet usually take longer and they just want u to by something or sign up for something. DON’T DO IT.

I have never had a problem with American Consumer Opinion, and
My 2 Cents surveys. always get my checks and no problem cashing them. The surveys are easy too, And with Opinion, they send you stuff to try and then do the survey. I.E a great mascara, and 2 weeks of paper towels.

Stumbled onto this website. Glad I did. I am disabled and am trying to make a little extra cash. I live in Huntington Woods, MI. I have been doing Vindale surveys. You can do OK if you carefully read the Terms and Conditions statements of the vendors before you start, keep good documentation, and, of course, stay ontop of those cancellation dates. cheers, Harvey (AKA Mirth)

I registered at npdor 1 year ago. I have done almost 20 to 40 surveys. I have got many points too. Of course i think it’s real, because, so far i have won a ps3, 50″ TV, and $5000. The cheque was real too. I cashed it, and got the money i need. You really have to go check this website out right now. I am happy with it. I still do the surveys. Easy Cash if you’re lucky in the sweepstakes.

Penny March 20, 2008 at 3:38 am

Can anyone tell me what sort of points would be considered enough to bid on some of the prizes for the NPDOR sweepstakes???
I’ve belonged to NPDOR for years and always done the surveys. I tried the sweepstakes when they first introduced them but got nowhere–I was always outbid. And of course they don’t tell you how many points are being bid by anyone else, and how many points the winning bidder had to use!
I’ve been saving my points for a year now and would like to try winning something but have no idea how many points to try bidding with. Any one got any ideas?

Reply

Rick July 11, 2011 at 10:29 am

It’s not a bid system Penny, it’s a sweepstakes system. You spend survey points to buy chances to win…the more points you put into a given sweepstakes, the greater your chance to win, but since it’s a random drawing there are no guarantees.

Rebecca May 15, 2008 at 7:11 pm

Just wanted to ease some worries about NPDOR- I’ve been a member for a few months and I enjoy the website. I won $100 a few weeks ago and received the check super quickly and it was 100% legitimate, absolutely no problems. They are a reliable company, however, I think you have to enjoy surveys to participate. Patience is required, as you can’t always win.
As far as how many points to put in, it’s really luck of the draw. I always consult the graph about where all the users are putting their points and bid accordingly. When I see that less than 1% of the users are putting their money towards the $100 cash, that’s where I put my points, although I do throw at least a few points into the bigger categories just for the opportunity. =) But I recommend going mainly for the lower valued prices as you have a better chance of getting them.
Hope this helped!

Ben May 24, 2008 at 7:31 am

Rebecca, thanx for the info… but I’m sure Penny, myself, and others are looking for a round about # of points that’s worthy of having a glimmer of hope in the raffles. Granted, we all see the various percentiles vs. prizes shown… but are we talking 7% of 1,000 of 7% of 6 billion???
I, myself, took the chipmunk approach and stored mine away for quite some time and just now decided to dump my 2185 into the $1000 that happens to drawn on my birthday next week. (Hopefully a little luck will come my way.)
Either way, best of luck to everyone and thank you for any and all info that you can send our way.
Best of Luck…

I’ve been taking these NPDOR surveys for almost a year now, and I’ve just collected points and entered random drawings, etc. I’ve never once got billed or had any problems, but I’ve never won either. I hear that people DO win things and that it’s very beneficial.

I have been taking surveys online for almost a year now and I have made thousands of dollars so far and counting. The key is to sign up for as many of the good ones as you can. The best ones are the sites that pay well and send surveys consistently. I have written a blog about this which includes links to some of the best paid survey sites I have found.

I’ve got about 2,800 pts saved up and I’m itching to hear about your experience.

Hi I am saving up my points too, but I don’t have quite as many as you guys. i have 850, I will keep saving til about 3,000 put it in the 5,000 and hopefully I will get it!!!…lol I am also saving my harrispollonline.com points i just started on that one though, they give u a chance to pick a prize after you earn over 800 points. Good luck all. Ben I hope you won your stuff.

Sounds like good info. Thanks. I am still looking for some hard numbers of the winners and the number of points used to win. I understand it is all about luck but for example, for the less than 1% sweeps, did you win with 100 pts, 500 pts, 2000pts??? Any winner who may want to post would be great. Thanks!

I just received an email saying I won a free Magazine subscription from the drawing. I used about 100 pts to enter this. I was really surprised by the win!

samantha November 14, 2008 at 6:58 pm

i have been using NPDOR surveys since september 2008 and haven’t won anything yet, i normally enter in my points right away when i get them though, i probably should start saving them up an enter a lot of them when i save up. i normally enter in about 20-50 points per prize, but i’m guessing it probably takes more.
i get surveys emailed to me probably 3 times a month, its really not that often. but i did see Amy’s name up there for winning the mag. subscription!!! this site doesn’t ask for any banking information nor does it charge you for using the site, so i think its legit and continue to use it. only takes 5 minutes tops to participate in a survey. good luck to all!

Guys and gals,
Come on! I mean really. Have you even read your own comments? The one’s claiming that money has been won are full of misspellings and oddball grammar; hence, phony and written by someone in the UK trying to dupe you all into providing your personal info. If you enjoy these sites, then by all means continue doing them. However, I’d suggest you keep a keep eye on your bank accounts if you have been foolish enough to give that info out to a random website. You do realize that these websites are one of the portals that scammers and spammers use to turn your home computers (or work ones) into zombie computers that spam out millions of jumk emails or steal money from you. One born every minute I guess.

One of the things that annoies me about NPDOR’s sweepland and makes me think it’s kind of a scam is the bonus points from those little flash games after the survey…
Once I took a break from the net for a week and I came back and there were 3 surveys. This time the ‘game’ at the end was the one where you guess the top 3 of something. On the first one I guessed the #2 answer so I got 30 points from that. Next survey I guessed the #1 thing and got 15 points… doubled for getting the #1, so 30. And the last one, the one that really got me thinking they’re just messing with people, I guessed the #3 answer and got 70 points… SEVENTY! In a game where you’re supposed to guess the top one, why is getting the bronze answer worth the most points?
I’ve been doing NPDOR for 6-7 years now and all I have to show for it is a little over 6000 points, and no winnings.
I think I’ll sink all my points into one of their smaller prizes.. like the 100 dollars.. and win or lose, I’m quitting. My 5-10 minutes per could be spent on more profitable things.

I”m glad some people have won something from NPDOR. Sad to say I have yet to win more than a few measly points. I signed up for NPDOR last year to do their surveys. I just finished taking this month’s survey. It was the same one I took a few weeks ago. In fact, I’ve taken this very same survey more than 5 times! The questions were identical.
That Sweepland flash game where you can win points or cash is a joke. They do not intend to give away $500 but they sure can give out those “bonus points” that you can use to enter their bogus “sweepstakes.” More like NPDOR is using us a spam fodder, and I’ve noticed more junk in my inbox since signing up for NDPOR. Why don’t they do like Harrie Poll, and let the points be redeemed for free gifts. I got a reloadable Starbucks card from Harris Poll and I still use it. Too bad I can’t “use” those NPDOR points. I’ll keep at it till I win something though.

ok i have been a member of npdor for like 2 months now and i have saves up 957 points i used 57 points in the 100 dollar sweepstakes so that i have 900 points. i did some cheking to see how well my chanses were. accoridint to http://www.census.gov/main/www/popclock.html there are 310,315,509 in the us. now asuming that evry american has a npdor account[i know they dont all have one]and assuming they all have saved up equal points to me [900 points] that means that there are a total of 279,283,958,100 points not yet to be played. now if evry one uses all there points that would mean that
279,283,958,100 divided by 100 = 2,792,839,581 and this equals to 1% of points so my little 900 points is only worth a little more then .0000001% of all points in play. this means there is vurtually no chance of winning and if you do win congrats but i now feel like its impossible

I have been a member of NPDOR for a number of years and I have NEVER won anything from Sweepland. I always try for the $100 or for the daily prize. I usually try around 50 to 100 points, sometimes more, for each drawing. I’m about ready to leave the site because after all this time I have never once received anything for the work I have done. Once I did their instant win game and the ball landed on the $500 spot, but then suddenly “jumped” to the next spot that was for 50 points.
As of now, I’m about to give up on this site. I’ve always had good results from SurveySavvy.com and the Socratic Forum and especially Karen Scott, they pay $3.00 for each survey and they pay the very next day after the survey is taken right into paypal.
