I love surfing the internet. There are all sorts of cool things that you can come across. But can you imagine sitting on the couch, surfing your favorite websites, while getting paid to do so. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, there are many websites that claim they will pay you to browse online, and SavvyConnect is one of those. So we will give them a shot and see if they are worth the time or if they're just another scam.
What is SavvyConnect?
SavvyConnect is a lot of things rolled into one company. SavvyConnect is a secure application that conducts market research while offering opportunities to make money by browsing the web as you normally do while their app tracks your activity. There are also opportunities to make money by filling out surveys, and referring friends. Established in 2009 as a counterpart of SurveySavvy, SavvyConnect can be found at www.surveysavvy.com/savvyconnect.
How Does It Work?
The application works by using your profile information and browsing habits to conduct market research while you surf the web. In addition to paid browsing, they will match you with possible paid surveys. Every time a survey comes up in which you match the desired quota of the clients, SavvyConnect will send you an email notifying you that a survey is available. You can also make money by referring new members in what SavvyConnect claims is one of the most “innovative referral programs around.”
How to make money with SavvyConnect?
Savvy Connect pays you in so-called “incentives.” These incentives add up and eventually you can exchange these for real cash. As we already mentioned , there are a few ways to make money with SavvyConnect. Here they are:
- The SavvyConnect app gathers information for a period of time, earning you incentives that you can cash out.
- You can get incentives by filling out surveys. Fill out enough surveys and you will be able to request a payment from SavvyyConnect.
- Direct referrals. If your direct referrals start making money, then so will you.
- You can also make money with indirect referrals, which are referrals that come from your direct referrals.
If none of this sounds appealing to you, I don't blame you. You may want to look into my Top Free Work from Home Recommendations instead.
All websites and applications of this nature have their faults, but some are worse than others. SavvyConnect is no exception to the rule, but you can make your own decision after reading the content below.
Uses up Data
If you are anything like me, then you push your mobile data plan to the limit each month, and upgrading plans is not cheap. For SavvyConnect to function the application must be running at all times, so it can gather the necessary information. This means that your data usage could go through the roof. Not only this, there are many complaints that running the application in the background causes the phone to run slower.
In essence, the SavvyConnect app is used to track your browsing habits and draw conclusions from the data that is gathered. Even though SavvyConnect guarantees that no personally identifiable data will be gathered or supplied to third parties, it still makes you worry a bit that your information could get out.
Payment details are foggy
There is no doubt that SavvyConnect does pay as they claim. There is evidence to support that. This still leaves one major question unanswered though, “just what the heck is an incentive and what is it worth?” While there is a hoard of information on the FAQ page, and no shortage of “incentive” talk, there is not a single mention of its worth in cash.
30 day minimum policy
In order to get paid, members are required to keep the app installed and running for a minimum of 30 days before you can begin receiving your earnings. But that is not the worst part. Many of the contracts offered will require that the application runs for 60 or 90 days before earnings will accrue.
Is SavvyConnect legit?
SavvyConnect appears to be a legitimate way to make money from home. There is no doubt that with their application you will be able to earn their coveted “ambiguous incentives” and eventually be able to cash out a little bit of money. However, when you consider all the drawbacks mentioned above, there are better options out there.

Well, that's enough from me. I'd love to hear what you think.
