What is SurveySay?

SurveySay is another very common platform that allows you to make money online by taking surveys. There are a lot of survey scams out there so you should be skeptical of this one as well.

However, let me tell you upfront that SurveySay is not a legitimate paid surveys portal because it is acting just like a "middleman" between survey takers and market research companies. This is the same for Survey Money Machines as well.

There are mainly two types of paid survey sites out there. One is where you can directly take surveys on their websites. Whilst, the other one is a "middleman" that directs you to other market research companies website to take survey and make affiliate commissions in the process.

So the owner of SurveySay is the one who makes most of the money from this process of referring you to different survey companies to take surveys. You won't be able to make much money, if any.

How to sign up with SurveySay?

Signup for SurveySay is completely FREE. Just go to their website here, enter your Email, date of birth, gender and your country. 

Notice that they don't even ask you to set a password. This is because all they need is an Email from you so that they can send you more and more survey companies signup information. You're not actually creating and account, instead you're just opting in to their mailing list. That's all.

After you've opted in, you'll be led to the page where you are provided with 5 survey companies for you to sign up with.

Survey companies recommended by SurveySay

In my case, they offer me the following five companies according to the information I entered:

  • Global Test Market
  • i-Say by IPSOS
  • Opinion Outpost
  • My Survey
  • Que Opinas

After clicking through their links, I can 100% confirm that they are just affiliate links. When you sign up with these survey companies, the owner of SurveySay will earn a commission.

How to Make Money with SurveySay?

For survey takers, you won't be making money directly from SurveySay. Instead, you'll need to follow the rules set by respective survey companies and they will pay you accordingly.

That's why there's no definite answer on how much you can actually earn because every company has different rules. Some people say you can make $0.50 per survey but all you need to know is that the money you can make out of taking surveys is just too little. A regular part-time job can earn you much more than taking surveys online.

There are 3 reasons why a part-time job is better than taking surveys:

  1. The reward to get per survey is just not worth the amount of time spent. Your hourly earning will definitely be lesser than your part-time hourly wage.
  2. Many survey companies have a threshold to be met before you can cash out your earnings. Some of these thresholds are just ridiculously high. $100 for many of them. As you know, making a hundred bucks online by taking surveys will take you a long time.
  3. Some survey companies are even worse. They may not fulfill they payout for you because they say you violated some rules or whatsoever BS.

If you really want to take surveys online to earn some extra cash, Survey Junkie is one of the only legitimate survey companies which you can trust. And their threshold is just $10.

Pros & Cons

The Good

I guess the only good thing is that it is Free to join and you don't have to waste any money. Other than that, there's no other benefits of joining this platform.

The Bad

On the other hand, there are 2 main disadvantages:

  • Spam: By providing your information, you'll never know whether companies will sell them to others. Most resulted in a tons of spams in your Email. So, if you ever decide to try out paid surveys, make sure you sign up with a separate Email. Don't use the one you are currently using.
  • Wasting Your Time: Like I've mentioned above, you can't earn anything much, if you earn any. Many of them are just scams. SurveySay has no control in the quality of the survey companies because it is just a "middleman", an affiliate making money in this process.
  • Tons of Bad Review: As you can see on sitejabber, there are lots of negative reviews on SurveySay.

So, the conclusion for SurveySay is that it is not a scam because it doesn't charge you anything. All they are doing is to refer you to other survey companies and make money.

But it is just not a good place to make money, at least not for you!

Dear Jerry,

Thanks for the thorough review on SurveySay and I wanted to give you a thumbs up. You have addressed all the details I need to know. I’ve tried out many other programs online and failed to make any money with all of them. So I always read reviews about products to gain more knowledge before buying it. Your review is very helpful I will come back to your website to learn more information. Thanks again.

Your Friend,

    Thank you so much Paul! I’m really glad my reviews help and you like them πŸ™‚

Hi, Jerry. Honestly I think most survey sites are either scams or just useless. I pretty much gave up on survey sites. Do you know of any out there that is legit? and that don’t pay peanuts for a whole days work? Thanks.

    Jerry Huang - January 22, 2018

    Hi Ami,
    Yea I agree with you we should just stay away from paid survey sites at all cost. From what I know, SwagBucks and Survey Junkie are the only legit survey sites. But still, they won’t make you rich.

Andy Anderson - January 22, 2018

Thanks for this review, Jerry.

I think a lot of people are drawn to taking surveys online because it’s an easy way to make money online. Unfortunately, there are a lot more people willing to take surveys than there is demand for survey-takers. So that means low payouts. I found that our first hand taking surveys on Swagbucks. It’s a legit site, and you can make money, but you won’t make much, certainly not enough to live on. About the only reason to do it is if you have a few minutes of downtime and won’t be doing anything anyway.

I think I’ll steer clear of this.

    Jerry Huang - January 22, 2018

    Hi Andy,
    Swagbucks is one of the recommended site for surveys. The other one is Survey Junkie. Other than that, most of the other survey sites are either affiliate sites like SurveySay and Survey Money Machine or just total scam.

    But like you said, even though they’re legit but they’re not worth our time doing. Thanks for you comment πŸ™‚

JOHNSON BENJAMIN - January 22, 2018

Hmm… Very interesting. LOL! I will agree with you jerry, “SurveySay: Not a Scam, but Pretty USELESS!” It’s of no use embarking on time wasting websites of such. I think folks out there need to know this simple truth. great review!
Thanks for the time invested in it!


    Jerry Huang - January 22, 2018

    Hey Benjamin,
    You’re welcome! Thanks a lot for your kind words and comment πŸ™‚

Hello, Jerry thanks so much for this insight. This can really save so many people from investing in something that is not worth their time.

    Jerry Huang - January 22, 2018

    Definitely. Thanks for you comment Norman!

Jesse - January 21, 2018

Thank you for your review on Survey Say. Such programs exist just to collect emails from people and become dumping ground for unwanted spam emails from companies.

Michael - January 21, 2018

Thank you for your thorough review, it looks like joining this might be a really waste of time, the only upside is that itΒ΄s free.
