Company: Survey Say
Rank: 25/100 – Not a well trusted survey website, stay away from this one
I’m not a huge fan of the online survey niche, but that doesn’t mean the market isn’t saturated with survey sites. There are so many companies out there, it can be confusing and difficult to know which ones are worth joining. If you’re here wondering is surveysay.com legit? I will tell you this up front – it is NOT one of the best survey sites out there. In fact, I’d recommend avoiding it altogether.
Survey Say is a middleman that connects you to other online research companies. But when I joined, they only directed me to ONE company:
What’s the point? After I filled out my profile (for which I received $5) I had access to a list of surveys I might qualify for, but after going through most of the list I wasn’t eligible to take a single one.
Out of all the reviews that exist for this company online, there aren’t really any positive ones. Most people have the same experience with not qualifying for any surveys, and wasting a lot of time going through the survey screening process and recieving no reward (some companies will at least minimally compensate you for your time if you don’t qualify).
They also don’t send enough surveys out for most people to have the opportunity to reach the $25 minimum cashout. And even if you do get surveys, some claim they only earn around $1 an hour.
This clearly is not the best survey site that exists. With the plethora of options, there’s no reason to sign up with this company, even if it is free.
If you manage to take enough surveys, you can cash out either at a minimum of $25 or wait until you’ve accumulated $50.
At $25 you can earn an Amazon gift card or a prepaid Visa,, and at $50 you have the added option of choosing PayPal (but there’s a 3% transaction fee, so you’d be losing $1.50)
Judging from the reviews, I wouldn’t bother sticking around long enough to find out.
Survey Say sells your information to third parties, so you will receive a lot of junk in your inbox. This isn’t much different from the majority of survey sites out there, so never join and give your normal email – have an alternate “junk” email you designate for this.
Luckily they don’t ask for your phone number, because I sure as heck wouldn’t trust it with them. You can optionally leave them your mailing address, although I wouldn’t recommend it.
There are countless survey research companies and websites out there you can join and earn rewards, many with very positive reviews. If you really want to take surveys, I would recommend joining a better rated company like Swagbucks or Inbox Dollars.
Overall though, even when it comes to the “good guys” for surveys, they are a waste of time in my opinion. You’re always going to have to put in so much effort and be rewarded very little in the end (way less than minimum wage these days!) also not to mention dealing with the endless junk mail.
When the internet is full of much more lucrative opportunities, it’s hard to justify putting in all your time with survey websites.
