Booooy, the month of March was absolute TUMBLEWEED when it came to surveys. I made nada, zilch, nur-thing. I don’t know, maybe it had something to do with the financial year, maybe March is always quiet.
But anyway, I’m happy to say there’s been some movement this month. I got a payment from Viewsbank (£6.23) and Pinecone Research (£3.00). That’s my first Pinecone survey of the year. Last I got was way back in December.
Proof of Payments Received…
So my total survey earnings has gone up to £34.26.
Whenever I do a GfK WISAD survey, if I’m lucky to win something from their prize draw, it’s always £2.00. But this time, I won £5.00! I was actually wondering the other day if I’d actually ever win £5.00…and then it happened! Schweet.
I was notified of my win on Friday. Here it is:
I’ve ordered five £1 Love2Shop vouchers. Should receive it in a week or so. Gonna keep three and give two to my sister.
I’ve won the GfK prize draw two months in a row. Can I make it three? Of course not. This isn’t Hollywood. Or is it? (cue Twilight Zone music)
Update – 18th Feb: received the vouchers Feb 14th, so 2013 survey earnings now total £25.03.
I got this one on Friday.
Crowdology‘s minimum payout’s low – £4.00 – and is paid instantly via Paypal once I request it. Most of their surveys are pretty short and fairly interesting. Some can be rather long though (well, for me, anyway), which is why it takes me longer to reach payout. I see it and my brain automatically screams NOOOOOOOOO. AVOID. JUMP SHIP. JUMP OUT THE CAR AND ROLL ON THE TARMAC BRUCE-WILLIS STYLE.
Then there are times when I don’t qualify, so that can have an impact too.
Anyhoo, here’s my proof of payment (who knows when I’ll see the next one. Maybe I should frame this one then. Wooden frame. Gold plated. I personally prefer silver though. Other peeps have trophies and picture frames of their graduation on their mantelpiece. I’ll have a frame of me smiling miles wide clutching certified proof of my Crowdology payment. Good times, people. Good times.)
Anyway, this takes my total survey earnings for this year up to £20.03.
Pollbuzzer’s an unusual survey site. You get sent a multiple-choice question in your inbox. You choose your answer. And that’s it. You’re done. And you get $1.00 for it.
I don’t get a lot of Pollbuzzer surveys. I’ve only ever been paid twice. Hope it picks up this year as it’s super quick to do and pays well for such little effort.
(*I answered the question on Jan 17th and was paid on the 21st.)
It’s an OK survey site. Points can be converted to cash, vouchers or donation. Low minimum payout of £3.00 (345 points). I find some of their surveys don’t reward enough (in my opinion) for the time required. I tend to skip those.
I haven’t used MySurvey for quite a while, but I knew I had some points in there. I recently decided to do some surveys so I could reach the minimum payout, which is how this payment came about. I requested payment on Jan 17th and received it 5 days later.

$1.00 is roughly £0.62, plus £3.00. I make that £3.62, bringing this year’s survey total to £15.72.
I recently won a £2.00 prize draw with the survey site, GfK WISAD. I chose from a selection of shopping vouchers equivalent to the value of my win. I went for two £1.00 Love2Shop vouchers and received them in the post yesterday.
I don’t have a camera so can’t take a picture of the vouchers, but I do have a screenshot of my win (below). Plus, you can take a looksie here at previous vouchers I’ve received from them from when I used to have a cam. My review can also be read there.
This moves my total made so far this year from surveys to £12.10. Let’s see what zee rest of zee month brings.
