Survey Junkie Review: Legit or Time Wasting Scam?

Links & ads you may click on this blog pay the bills & keep this site free for you. Thanks for supporting!

When I first jumped into this make money industry, I thought surveys were going to be easy money. But I quickly discovered that is a bunch of BS like so much of the stuff out there. Most of the claims of that you can make large sums of money with surveys are utter nonsense. There are few survey companies that are legit. However, none of them are going to pay you anything substantial. But still there is a lot of people buying into the survey pipe dream. So I've decided to tackle one of these companies in my following Survey Junkie Review. But let me give you a spoiler alert. You're not going to be able to depend on this for any real money. Sorry to disappoint, but I need to keep it real. But you'll see why as you read below.

What is Survey Junkie?

Survey Junkie is yet another get paid to take a survey site sort of like Inboxdollars.comSwagbucks.com & FusionCash.com. They advertise themselves as “the most popular spot online to earn cash and rewards for sharing your thoughts.” SurveyJunkie.com was launched on Oct 6, 2005 and has over 7,000,000 members at the time of this review.

How To Make Money With Survey Junkie?

Duh! You're getting paid to answer survey questions. But before you can earn, you need to provide some personal information in your profile. This includes your age, contact info, and consumer preferences. They use this information to match you with companies that need you to answer surveys.

SurveyJunkie doesn't compensate with cash for surveys you take. Instead, you earn points that can be deposited into your PayPal account or can be claimed as e-gift cards. So it does become cash once you redeem it for any of those options. Swagbucks.com works the same way, but you're not limited to surveys and they have far more gift card and cash options.

At the time of this review, completing your first profile earns you 25 points. Most surveys last for 5 to 20 minutes and are worth about 50 – 450 points. 1000 points is equivalent to $10.00. If you'd prefer to deal with actual money instead of points, then check out FlexJobs.comInboxdollars.com,  FusionCash.com &  My Top Free Work At Home Recommendation.

How Much Money Can You Make with Survey Junkie?

Survey Junkie is finally honest about the earning potential. On their website they claim “You Will Not Get Rich” taking surveys. The reality is that you can expect to earn about $1 to $3 per completed survey. But this is assuming you actually qualify for the surveys. We'll get into this painful reality later in the complaints section.

What Do We Like About Survey Junkie?

  • It's absolutely free to join. Some survey companies you run into online are just middlemen that compile a list of surveys and try to sell it to you. Survey Junkie doesn't charge you a dime.

 

  • Receive points immediately after completing a survey. Some survey companies delay crediting your rewards for some made up reasons. But Survey Junkie credits you as soon as you're done.

 

  • Rewards sent immediately at redemption –  You don't have to wait around for checks or physical gift cards. You can get rewards like PayPal, Amazon, e-Gift card which come instantly online once you can redeem.

 

  • No fees to redeem points – Some companies will actually charge you some type of fake processing fee to redeem your rewards. This isn't the case here.

 

  • Low $10 payout threshold – Some companies make nearly impossible to cash out by having these ridiculously high threshold amounts like $50-$100. This is not the case here and they make cashing out attainable.

 

  • Receive points for the surveys you do not qualify for – There is nothing more frustrating then going through a survey to hear you don't qualify. Most of the times these jerk survey companies will pay you nothing. Well that's not the case with SurveyJunkie.

 

  • A+ Rating with BBB – Some of you live and die by a better business rating. Well at the time of this review, you'll be happy to know that Survey Junkie has a positive rating with the BBB and Trust Pilot.

How Do You Join Survey Junkie?

Survey Junkie is FREE to join. You must be at least 13 years old and reside in the US, Canada, or Australia. You can create an account with a username and password. Or you can create an account using Facebook or Google+.

Survey Junkie Hacks & Tips

Here are some tips to help you get the most out of Survey Junkie.

Get involved in their referral program. They pay you to share their opportunity with others.

It's a good idea to open a separate Yahoo or G-mail account just for signing up with Survey Junkie or the companies they may link to. Apparently you may get flooded with more survey offers or spam. So it's better to be on the safe side.

Survey Junkie Complaints

Not surprisingly SurveyJunkie.com has their fair share of complaints. But keep in mind most of the complaints are from the past where their business model was more about being a middleman. But they still have some areas of improvements. Keep in mind some of these complaints are common to survey sites. Either way we needed to break them down.

I need my privacy.

Although Survey Junkie has evolved from just being a middle man, they do link to other survey websites that you can join. These websites may share your info to other “partner” companies. This means your email inbox and phone can soon fill up with junk from those who acquired your info. You can mitigate this by using a different email address that isn't your main one.

The math doesn't add up.

Like all survey websites the money you earn here is based on supply and demand. Certain demographics may be more popular and desired than others. So although you may be willing to spend many hours earning very little to do surveys, there may not be enough available to you. So this isn't an opportunity to supplement or replace your income. You should check out FlexJobs.com &  Wealthy Affiliate for that!

Sudden account closures.

Apparently some people have complained that their accounts were closed for no apparent reason. And to make matters worst they continued to receive unwanted survey related emails. I've seen this complaint with many rewards and survey sites. Usually the person violates some terms and conditions or in some cases the parent company is being shady. So it can go either way.

Payment issues.

We also found reports from some survey takers that they did not receive their earned cash and gift cards. That's never a good sign. But then again, sometimes these reward and survey companies deny payment because they have found a user violated some rules.

So is Survey Junkie Legitimate?

Survey Junkie has listened to some of the complaints about there being exclusively a middleman for third-party sites. They have recently incorporated direct options to reward you with points for taking internal surveys. This has made earning points more attainable; however, you still “ain't” going to replace a full-time or even part-time salary with this opportunity. But a work at home job found at FlexJobs.com may help you do achieve that!

That said, it's legit, in that they say up front that you are not going to make any real dough. And that you can earn for taking surveys with them, assuming you fit a profile that is in demand. But I don't know if I would personally recommend this opportunity. The whole reason people even explore this option is to make some consistent money. But if you can't do that, then what's the point?

Fortunately, there are other options that can help you make money consistently. If you're looking to make a part-time or full time income in time, then I would recommend you look into My Top Free Work At Home Recommendation! They have helped me earn a full time income. It took time and hard work. It was probably the same amount of time I would have wasted taking surveys. But with this opportunity I've made way more than I would have ever earned with surveys. So check it out!

However, I'm a big believer that you shouldn't have all your eggs in one basket. So I tend to promote a multiple stream of income philosophy. So if one opportunity doesn't work out you have others making you money. If you can relate to that mindset, I would also encourage you to check out one of my Work At Home Courses. I teach some of the techniques that I still use to make additional money. Hopefully you'll find them useful as well.

Well, that's enough from me. I would love to hear your thoughts about this opportunity or surveys in general. So feel free to post a comment down below. Don't be shy, I don't bite.

Until next time,

Eddy with a  signing off!

Survey Junkie is now holding my accumulated 85.74 hostage. I tried to redeem at around 40.00 but kept going. I’ve been told they now have to make the payout manually (whatever that means). They are still sending me survey possibilities in my email but it has been two weeks and several notes to customer service but no movement on my 85.74. I think even if they let me redeem I am pretty sure I am done with them.

    That’s sucks. Hopefully they do the right thing by you. Keep us updated.

PS: My first post didn’t say what might be most vital of all to never fall prey to SJ. ‘Guaranteed pay’ auto-email invite never fail to prove 100% right! For THEM – at YOUR expense. Hit the hyperlink and a big pink box pops up to say ‘Sorry, it’s filled up’ or ‘You don’t qualify’ – AFTER 10-15 minutes wasted in reply to ‘prelim’ inquiries. But almost a decade of site testing has not quite matched this one yet by depth or breadth of its ‘prescreen’ prelims. In fact, most full-blown post-qualified questionnaire panes are identical to their threshhold gateways.

So, no need to go figure. By the time you get to a [preprogrammed] auto-reject page, they get more than ample detail from large enough data sample to keep Yale PhD Crackpot Statisticians busy for life. You get 3 lousy cents in exchange for valuable input used to manipulate your subsequent buying decisions.

STAY AWAY FROM SURVEY JUNKIE OR PAY MONKEY WRENCH GET-RICH LOTTO FOR NO-WIN

Crissie - October 8, 2018 Reply

SJ is Sick Joke! They poke monkey-see & do types with prizes but payback nothing but huge lies. Flim-flam scam conman sham shell games reek a foul smell every week.

After months of getting burned time and again, I learned not to take pretty bait, especially if it came from a paid referral in the first place. (DUH! Shoulda known better, huh?).

Auto-emailed ‘guaranteed pay’ exclusive survey invites pour in that entice by a high amount like 300 pts ($3 USD) in your account instantly after. But guess what? Yes, right again! Big catch is that they even deny you slight ‘privilege’ of false illusion. Hit submit 30-45 minutes later and get pure DISillusion when a big error message pops up of some IT issue that prevents submission!

AFTER you waste precious time to give so many personal details on DOZENS of windows that never fails or falters even once until the very last one . .

Even worse, prepare for cold reception as a Gold member if you dare be so bold to question why. I wrote after the umpteenth ripoff finally broke this workhorse’s back by 285 ‘instant credits’ gone as the wind – just like that!

No word ever heard back. Despite all desktop recorder video clips and screen snips of verbatim offer T&C text as vivid proof of bare truth in purest format!

All I can say is they must pay dearly for clearly bogus referrals & testimonials that severely harm believers by their paid deceivers who may not know what they do themselves all over Cyberspace.

STAY FAR AWAY FROM ‘SJ’!

Lloyd - October 6, 2018 Reply

Well, I have finally run out of patience with the SJ folks. I have been at it for about 5 months now, and as others have said, in the beginning, I was completing a good number of surveys. I was making about $20 per week, which is not much, but still worth my time. Then about two months ago, things really changed for the worse. I have gone through over 300 survey offerings, without being able to complete a single one. It is sometimes “you didn’t qualify”, but usually, it gives me the “survey filled” message. I finally contacted their cust. ser. dept., and was told that they are having a problem with some accounts in this regard, but their tech team is working to solve the problem. I told them, “no problem, just credit my account the 20,000 points that their problem has cost me”. Of course they can’t do that. Guess they don’t believe in paying for their screw-ups. Hell, they are only a $7,500,000 per yr. company. Why should they pay for their mistakes, when they can dump them on a crippled, retired old man like me? I am tired of working 10 hrs. per day for $3.50. Companies like SJ need to be regulated, and made to account. Scam indeed!! Two month later, and still no resolution. I can also relate to those who have complained about completing a lengthy survey, only to be told I didn’t qualify, or the survey filled up. Strange how that seems to happen just as you have done the work, and answered all their questions. I have no doubt my award money is going into someones pocket. The coincidence is just too great! I have calculated that they have stolen over $75.00 from me in this manner, since I signed up. Bottom line: I have acted in good faith, and Sj has not. They’ll just have to find another chump willing to work for $.35 an hour, as they rake in millions.

    Eddy Salomon - October 7, 2018 Reply

    Thanks for sharing your experience. Clearly it wasn’t a good one. I would recommend filing complaint via the better business bureau. Sometimes companies are more receptive there. That said I would never spend a lot of time on surveys or making it my main source of income. There are too many factors that are not in your control. You’re relying on fitting on a demographic and hoping the surveys don’t have any “technical” issues to get paid. So that’s too many unknowns and things I don’t control. So hopefully you’ll consider other ways to make money online because there are others where you have more control and make more money. But to each their own. Either way your situation with SJ is not a good one. And hopefully they do right by you.

Stevi - September 20, 2018 Reply

You do surveys, get points into your account from those surveys completed, and then can’t redeem your money. Every time I give them my phone number to verify my account, and I entered the code that was given to me over the phone via automated message, I get a message on their website “We were unable to verify your identity. Please contact customer support.” This has happened several times even after they claim to have reset my verification attempts. They obviously do not want to pay me. SCAM!

larry - September 3, 2018 Reply

To those saying Survey Junkie is a scam. I made $450 in about 5 months.

So it’s not a lot of money, but for people to say it’s a scam, no it’s not.

    Eddy Salomon - September 3, 2018 Reply

    Thanks for sharing your experience Larry. I find that a lot of the people on the web call anything a scam if they don’t agree with it or perceive they have been slighted. So the word is thrown around very loosely which is why I like to dive deep when researching companies.

Spencer - July 31, 2018 Reply

Survey Junkie is a scam, they will do everything they can not to give you points. They will make you complete entire surveys for 30 minutes and they say, “Sorry, you are not qualified” and give you only 3 points (btw, this equals 3 cents). Most of the surveys only pay out 20 points, which is the equivalent of 20 cents. I spent hours on here, had to contact them to get points I was promised, and still can’t redeem them even after verifying my identity and paypal. They just want someone to do a job for free. Don’t trust these articles – be smart. Just because someone wrote an article THAT THEY WERE PAID TO WRITE, doesn’t mean that the information they give is accurate.

    Eddy Salomon - July 31, 2018 Reply

    Spencer thanks for confirming some of the complaints I laid out in the review above. If someone actually paid me to write this review I would have lied and said this survey company is perfect and never acknowledged the complaints I listed above.

    I know it’s hard for people like you to wrap your head around the fact bloggers like myself can make money without misleading people. Make money while blogging doesn’t make us any less objective. Furthermore I’m transparent at the start of all my posts that I may make money on links or ads you may click on. It’s not a dirty secret that I’m hiding. I understand your frustrated with Survey Junkie and it sounds justified based on what you laid out. But implying bloggers like myself can’t be trusted because I write objective reviews that give the good and bad isnt helping your issue with Survey Junkie. Hopefully they will read your feedback about them here and contact you. I wish you the best either way. It’s important to hear feedback like yours on these type of companies so people can make informed decisions for themselves. If I were actually paid for writing a positive review your comment would have been deleted. But obviously it’s here for the world to see.

I will come back to your website to learn more information. All the very best!

Survey Junkie is legit but they do have SCAM TENDENCIES. I am recuperating from a surgery and have some downtime on my hands. I have made almost $200 in two months taking surveys, some of them which are annoying and some that are quite fun. Screening unseen movie trailers & ideas is fun and I’ve even screened unseen TV pilots. Those are fun. Again, some of the surveys are fun / interesting. I have not had any ‘glitches’ where I could not redeem my points, sending them to PayPal was easy peasy.

Now the bad part. Their customer service SUCKS and is probably populated by smug, ugly, lonely a**wipes. This is the one ongoing scam I can report: I have had quite a few surveys (almost to the tune of $10.00) not pay out after you’ve taken and COMPLETED them successfully. That is annoying after you’ve spent your hard earned time taking them, only to be ROBBED upon completion. Then when you complain through their system, they either do not respond, or respond with some asinine canned message that does not address your situation. I have actually resorted to photographing the “CONGRATULATIONS” SCREEN, with the points total not having budged. I just did this today so we shall see how or of they respond to this.

BOTTOM LINE: If you’re easily frustrated or not wanting to put more effort into protecting yourself, DON’T BOTHER. THERE IS NO PHONE NUMBER TO CALL AND YELL AT SOMEONE. I suggest writing down the survey # before taking it, and sending it along with the complaint after you have been robbed by it. They will probably not respond, but it’s better than them asking for the survey # and you don’t have it because they will DEFINITELY NOT pay you then. This occurrence has been so prevalent and so annoying that I have filed a case with the BBB, and then a second, so I may report here the results of it. So if you have the patience, make a couple quick bucks by taking surveys while watching tv, as you can do both at the same time. But if you’ve been on the computer all day at work or school, skip it and give your eyes and brain a break.

brian - April 17, 2018 Reply

This site is not legit, you get paid once, when you reach 10 dollars that is all, after that they stop giving you surveys and it always says noting available, but when there is a survey, about 95% of the time it is either “filled up” or “not qualified” which is dumb, overall this site is a scam, waste of time and effort, then they make you verify your account and they say my address is invalid, um do they live at my house? NO, so this is just a big scam, so is slicethepie, dont waste your time like i did!

    Eddy Salomon - May 1, 2018 Reply

    Well, thanks for sharing your experience. Some people have been paid and do like the site. Unfortunately with surveys its based on supply and demand. So if you don’t meet their demographics you won’t get surveys. That sucks and unfortunately that happens with most survey companies. But it’s why no one should depend purely on surveys to make money online. You should have a multiple streams of income approach. That said I agree that surveys aren’t the best use of time for everyone. It’s something I quickly learned and why I decided to focus on creating my own business. Everyone has different needs and tolerances. Just because surveys may be a waste fo time for me, doesn’t mean it’s a scam and a waste of time for others. So to each their own. Hopefully you found something that works better for you.

I just received my first payout from Survey Junkie through PayPal and I have used so many different apps and websites to try and make extra cash, so far besides SlicethePie, this is the only app that has actually sent me any type of payout! the payout was extremely simple and I highly recommend this site. It is difficult to find surveys that you qualify for but its worth it when you do!

Donald Dumbass - February 24, 2018 Reply

Being retired, I have a lot of spare time and spend a lot of it on the internet. I recently came across an article that mentioned “Survey Junkie” as an opportunity to make a little money. I thought that after 76 years on this earth that I was past the possibility of getting scammed and I could pick up a little beer money. Man, how I wisd I had Googled “Survey Junkie”and read some of the articles posted about this SCAM. Every article posted on this site is 100% gospel. A person is going to get hosed! You can fill out a survey only to find out after wasting a good deal of your time that you did not qualify for the survey, and oh by the way, here is three cents—go buy yourself a sucker and take another survey. You can time out, you can be dropped or you can be told there are no more surveys available. YOU are going to find out that you are wasting your precious time for nothing—unless you enjoy getting “Jacked.”

don - January 15, 2018 Reply

First 2 weeks of doing surveys was great. Was able to accumulate points quickly. After that, I was kicked out of a lot of surveys after spending tons of time on it. Example: did a survey for 780 points that would take about an hour. After spending 58 minutes on the survey, and watching the progress bar hit 99%, I was kicked out and told I didn’t qualify. This happens a lot. I was given 2 points. Most surveys don’t seem to want accurate results. Politically, if I say I am conservative, I’m kicked out. If I say I don’t totally believe in man made global warming, I’m kicked out. As a side note, most of the surveys take way longer than the estimated time. I don’t spend as much time doing the surveys as I used to. Just too frustrating.

    Eddy Salomon - May 1, 2018 Reply

    I hear ya Don. I use to get very frustrated with doing surveys because so some of the issues you mentioned as well. I just don’t think it’s worth my time. But for some people they’re able to make some money with it. Either way there are other ways to earn.

    TAEQUAN - May 5, 2018 Reply

    Yes, this is common with SJ. You can spend time taking the whole survey and then you seem to get that dumb-ass message. This means that a) they got your time for free, and b) Survey Junkie just made money off you. Their customer service is shiite, and they don’t care about the customer at all. Their time will soon come… All scam companies will soon be brought to justice.

Boi - January 7, 2018 Reply

Its unfortunate that there are so many white people that did the surveys on this site that if you put that you are white on anything on the surveys it says you dont qualify.

    Eddy Salomon - May 1, 2018 Reply

    I don’ t think they discriminate against white people. Most surveys are based on demographics so if they have enough white people at the time you take the survey, then it will be closed. But most companies want a mix of various types of people for their data.

Veronica - December 8, 2017 Reply

This is NOT TRUE. Survey Junkie does compensate in CASH & POINTS. You can redeem your cash and it sent to your paypal every time you reach 10$. I’ve already made 40$ is 3 days. You spend a lot of time at first just ffinding one to qualify for but after your first pay out you receive more working surveys that pay out higher

silvi - November 12, 2017 Reply

SCAM – WATCH OUT. Do not waste your time. I completed many of the surveys they sent me via email and reached approx. 435 points. You don’t get paid until you reach 1,000 points. Then you are supposed to get paid $10 for your time. I spent so much time on this in that many surveys did not allow you to complete, rather sending you to a new survey, without benefit.

Then, suddenly, I received no more survey options. No more emails. Somehow, they had also deleted all of the previous emails sent to me. Only found them again because I had taken some screenshots.

When going on the sight, trying to log on, I was denied entry to the website.

This is a big scam, using up your precious time without following through with the promised compensation.

Hope this info will help many not to even get involved.

    Ed Herman - April 18, 2018 Reply

    Your review about negligible pay for the time required was on target. However I am recommending that you add another risk that is far more ominous. Not only do they collect very detailed data about individuals, they require very personal information including home address, exact birthdate and more in order to “verify” your identity so you can get your $10.
    In the wake of the Facebook headlines, hopefully more people are understanding that it is very dangerous to give companies this kind of combination of detailed information. Even if the company is legit, hackers with much skill are targeting these companies in order capture that data and then use it for a wide range of criminal activity.
    WAY TOO MUCH RISK to even “amuse” yourself taking surveys with Survey Junkie. If they had disclosed how much very personal data would be required in order to get their nominal payout, I never would have given this a try. (I calculate that if you take the surveys seriously and answer with thought, you’re actually earning about $1 or $2 per hour!!!)
    I recognize a survey company’s need to screen the data they collect in order to have credible data to sell to their clients. However, there are plenty of ways to do this without requiring some of the key components that lead to identity theft.
    Think about how easy this looks to a hacker. If you can crack Survey Junkie’s barriers, you get the following information on a huge number of people: Name,Birthdate, Residential address, a deep and detailed profile about preferences and opinions and YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT ADDRESS!! Might as well just leave the keys in the front door and go away for a two week vacation.

    Eddy Salomon - May 1, 2018 Reply

    Thanks for sharing. The reality is our information is constantly being shared with various services that we use everyday. Hackers hack banks, federal governments, equifax, etc. Anything where data is stored and can be accessed online can be hacked. So that’s probably a concern that can be associated with any service we all use. It’s unfortunate symptom of being connected. So I don’t think this isolated to this company. It’s something that can be said with many services we use. The only real way to protect against that is to be off the grid totally. And that’s nearly impossible nowadays. But I hear ya point.

Jason - October 24, 2017 Reply

Very informative article, loaded with info. Could not agree more with you, it is what it is, a way to make a “little” extra cash, as all these survey sites are.

As far as a Survey site, Survey Junkie is One of the better ones in my opinion, that’s not huge praise though.

Payout’s have been easy via PayPal.

About half of the surveys I do qualify for. That’s very good.

If you don’t enjoy surveys, don’t bother, you’ll get bored very quickly.

MY ADVICE:
Never wait to cash out after you’ve reached their 10 dollar threshold. Imagine if you had hundreds of dollars accumulated, and all of sudden you were banned, for whatever reason?

I wouldn’t put it past them to to try some shady unexplained ban to keep your money once you get to a certain point total.

Never trust these sites to payout, take your money as you reach the cash out threshold.

    Eddy Salomon - October 24, 2017 Reply

    You definitely make a good point with your cash out advice. You can never tell with some of these sites when they decide to switch up on you.

This site may not be a scam, but they will do what they can not to pay you. My points are locked, and the screen reads that it’s for my protection. I emailed to find out why. All I was told was they investigated, and I violated one of their rules. Couldn’t tell me which rule, or how I violated it. Furthermore, if I violated a rule how is it locked for my protection? I call bs. DON’T use this site they are shady, crooked, scam artist. They just work it where you can’t prove it’s a scam.

Survey Junkie is indeed legit. I’ve been using it and so far earned $60. As far as the demographics qualification they are asked more than once because your switched between surveys so of course your gonna be asked more than once. I for one love using it the money get sent to my PayPal the same day.

I joined Survey Junkie as something to do while I’m nursing my newborn. For that purpose, it’s perfect. I’m in a very zen headspace while nursing, so it doesn’t bother me if I have to click a whole bunch of survey links before qualifying for a fifty cent survey. In six weeks, I’ve made $120, which went straight into PayPal, then my bank account. No issues. I cannot recommend it for anybody who could be doing something more valuable with their time, but for me, it’s ideal!

    Eddy Salomon - September 9, 2017 Reply

    That’s great Christine. Thanks for sharing your experience. It all depends on your needs and goals. If you can actually qualify for surveys and don’t mind the time they require they’re definitely a legit way to make some money.

Survey Junkie is legit however make sure you don’t rush through the surveys or it counts against you.. If you go too fast a pop up will say you violated one of their terms. I used to receive pop ups occasionally. ( their site technical problem) I wasn’t even going fast. Recently I tried for a couple of days to receive surveys only to get a message saying there were no surveys available. That is not uncommon. They have plenty of surveys daily. After receiving the message for 2 days I contacted them. They told me my account was suspended for violating one of their terms. I asked which one. They accused me of taking a 5 minute survey in 28 seconds. Impossible!

    Thanks for sharing your experience. You’re right that you should be rushing through surveys. The whole reason market research companies are paying you is to get accurate information that they can make business decisions on. If you’re rushing through the surveys, it means you’re probably aren’t reading the questions and answers properly and giving them bad information. So I can see why that would get you in trouble.

Hello, can you give me a real phone number & an real address to verify my survey junkie account??

    Eddy Salomon - May 27, 2017 Reply

    Why would you still want to join this after reading this review?
    And no people can’t give you a real number and address. That’s the whole reason they want you to have one so you’re not breaking the rules.

SurveyJunkie is legit. I joined a couple of days ago. I just redeemed $10.62 and it was sent to my paypal account. I wish they have a referral link to earn more cash. Now i’m doing surveys again and at $2.91. Can’t wait for it to reach $10 so i can redeem it again.

    Vlad, they don’t seem to publish their number which is why you can’t find it.
    But here’s their address:
    1200 S Brand Blvd # 200

SCAM SCAM SCAM! Do not waste your precious time with this webpage.

First it takes many hours to even get to the standard 1000 points to earn for first 10$,
Then, the best part, it’s been over 6 weeks and I have yet to receive my gift card.

RIDICULOUS! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME

    Thanks for sharing your experience. Be sure to check out the recommendation I mentioned if you’re tired of dealing with survey nonsense like this.

i waiting to be paid thru my paypal account with no response. how long does it take for them to post my money into my account.

Bryan - February 14, 2017 Reply

I’ve been signed up with this company for about two months. Even though I get survey offers several times a day, I never seem to qualify — especially for the higher point ones.

What’s most frustrating is when I invest 20 to 30 minutes of my time only to be told that I don’t qualify but here’s 3pts for trying, then it prompts me to try another one.

I’ve exhausted my patience and time on this and although I personally cannot recommend them, maybe others will have better luck.

    Hey Bryan,
    Thanks for sharing your experience. Unfortunately I think it’s very common with surveys which is the reason I don’t really spend too much time on them. It’s all about your demographics some will be more popular than others. So you’re just at that whim which isn’t a way to make consistent income.

I have no idea why am not able to cash out it says redemption temporarily disabled and I don’t even know why it says to contact them and I’ve done it 4 times and no one seems to help me

    That’s crazy Francis. See if you can find their social media accounts and contact them there. Keep us posted.

Survey Junkie is a total scam====== you will never earn even a penny====== don’t waste your time with them.

    Eddy Salomon - November 15, 2016 Reply

    Can you elaborate more on why they’re scam? Surveys are based on demographics. If you don’t you’re not part of a demographics in demand you won’t earn. And that’s across all surveys. I’m just curious as to exactly what happened in your experience.

I’ve done a few surveys, well, more than a few, but check them out as much as I can first. I don’t understand the whole “points go too your PayPal acct”. They go there and you can withdraw them as cash? Or just buying on the internet. If you get a minute, let me know. I’m going to do a few more, understanding I don’t make a lot of money. While looking fitter something legit to do on the internet as a very part-time job.

    To sign up for survey junkie, you need to create an account with them. In that account you’ll be able to see how many points you earn for surveys. In your survey junkie account you can them click a button to redeem those points into real cash which they will send via paypal or can be redeemed for gift cards. You can email them and they can explain the process to you.
    As I said surveys are the most inconsistent ways to earn money since you have no control over if you qualify for them. So I wouldn’t waste much time with them. There are better options like I mentioned above.
