FGI Research SmartPanel Review (updated with new link 08/2011) – click to join
Began in August 2003. This is a paid survey program that will ask your demographics, then email you if you might potentially qualify. The email will link you to a “screener”, and if you qualify you’ll either receive a cash award or a drawing entry for your participation (they’ll tell you up-front which).
In July so far, they’ve given away $4,500 in prizes, the most for any month yet! The breakdown was 9 $250 prizes, 9 $150 prizes, and 36 $25 prizes. Unsure how many people qualified to do the surveys, so I can’t compute your odds. If you do win or complete a paid survey, they promise payment in 4-6 weeks.
Have gotten two screeners: didn’t qualify once, and was too late responding on the other.
