    Are there legitimate opportunities filling out surveys? I'm not talking about MICROWORKERS and those type of sites. I'm talking about higher paid surveys around $5 and up.

    Can you list some sites that are legitimate?

    I've made about $8 ever from Survey Savvy... many of their surveys take a long time only to have them say "sorry, you don't fit our target demographic" and you've wasted 15 minutes for nothing.

    Opinion Outpost is my personal favorite, surveys generally pay $2-$6 each, and are very quick to complete. And, if you're not a match for the survey, they tell you very quickly so it's not a big investment of time. Payment is offered as cash or Amazon gift cards, I always take the GCs because it's sent instantly (once you reach a minimum $5 balance that is) and there's always books and stuff I want from Amazon. Payment by check also takes 4-8 weeks... I average about $30/month with this, so it's not a big moneymaker of course, but considering it's so easy and quick to do, I often do surveys while talking on the phone or waiting for a download, etc.. and it's enough to pay for a couple of new books or DVDs each month..

    I get $2 for referrals

    or

    Good luck, this site is pretty sweet.

    I've been paid out $40 by treasuretrooper, but it was mostly referalls. A lot of them had geo restrictions since I'm in Canada

    I think the OP should probably skip your website then. ;)

    I can tell you that I have personally made over $300 filling out surveys on TreasureTrooper, but that was a while back. The industry has changed and it's just not worth it anymore. Do something else.

    Yeah, that's a good one too. But I only got paid a couple of times from that. Most of the time I don't qualify.

    I've used a bunch of sites that pay. ValuedOpinions, opinionoutpost, globaltestmarket, etc. But its probably not worth your time.
