Is Take Surveys For Cash A Scam

take surveys for cash scam

So, is Take Surveys For Cash a scam?  When I say scam, I am referring to an offer that is completely misleading.  You can make money completing surveys, but it is very little money and it will take a lot of your time to do so.  In a nutshell, the sales page for Take Surveys For Cash is completely misleading and puts out false information all in the hopes of making a sale.  Do not fall for this!  Read on for the details.

  • Owner:  Jason White (could be a fake name)
  • Website:  takesurveysforcash.com
  • Cost: $39 one time fee with upsells
  • Verdict:  Complete Joke

If you have been to the website (TakeSurveysForCash.com) then you know exactly what I am about to say or hopefully you do. ALL of the so-called proof is questionable at best.  I would be very leery of anything proclaiming such outlandish claims especially for something like taking surveys.  That is always a red flag.  As the old saying goes, if it is too good to be true, it probably is.

Take Surveys For Cash Scam

The balance shows over $172k and all from taking surveys.  Now, I have taken surveys before and they can be quite lengthy (around 15-45 minutes per survey for the good companies that actually pay) and the payouts are typically around $1 up to $15 for each one.  So, lets say you completed 10 per day (15 minutes each) every day for a month and all of them were accepted at $1 each.  That is roughly $280 per month, $3,360 per year, 67,200 in 20 years.  You see how making $172k is a bit difficult to say the least.  Even at 20 surveys per day, every day that would be $134k in 20 years (roughly 5 hours per day every day for the rest of your adult life).

And my examples assume you are able to find that many good companies who want to use you (the good ones are picky) and does not even take into account those surveys that are more like 30-45 min each, or those that only pay out like 0.50 per survey or worse pay out in credits.  Folks, this is ridiculous!

Now, if you want to take surveys for extra money in your spare time, that is completely fine, a lot of people do. Just don’t expect to get rich off of it.  We are talking pocket change at best as well as some trial products to sample and maybe points earned for a chance to win prizes.  You could do this for 8 hours a day, 7 days a week and who knows what you would end up with because you will not know if you will be paid for your efforts or not.  It is not guaranteed.

Making money online takes work, plain and simple.  You cannot expect to fill out a couple of surveys and be set for those golden years.  If you want to do this full time, then be prepared to be homeless.

There is no secret to taking online surveys.  I mean he actually says that the good companies do not advertise on line because they do not want to be flooded by unqualified applicants.  But, since they know Jason and trust him and apparently Jason knows we are all qualified, we have hit the jackpot!  Really?

Take Surveys For Cash Secret Scam

Do you really want to know what this product is all about, well let me explain.  There is an affiliate program tied to this that you or I can sign up for if we wanted to promote this garbage.  This Jason person and his Taking Surveys For Cash Scam is literally being promoted by who knows how many so-called affiliate marketers who are making a 75% commission every time the product or one of the upsells is purchased.

TakeSurveysForCash.com Affiliate Program Scam

I pulled the above screen shot directly from the affiliate site for Take Surveys For Cash.  Now, I have absolutely nothing against affiliate sites or affiliate marketers, I am one :).  What I do have a problem with is that not only the owner of the product but hundreds of additional people are willing to promote such useless information to make money.  This is the kind of stuff that really just pisses me off and gives the good affiliate marketers out there a bad name.

How Can You Avoid the Survey Scam

Don’t fall victim to these too-good-to-be true opportunities that exist out there.  Following these steps will help you avoid being scammed.

  1.  Do your research, I cannot say this enough!  You can find these paid survey sites online, research them, and then decide if you want to participate.  It really is that simple.  Does it take time, yes, but everything in life worth doing takes some effort.
  2. Do not pay money for a list of online survey companies.  You can find these via a Google search.
  3. Never pay for an upsell, they are never only limited time offers, that is a sales ploy.  Believe me, if you reject it and continue on, you WILL see it again and again somewhere else.
  4. Make sure you do your research.  Review various testimonials and check out sites like RipOff Report for more information about consumers being scammed.
  5. Look for any disclaimers or privacy policies to ensure your email address is not going to be sold to advertisers and check for a money back guarantee (even though those are not always guaranteed).

So, What does it all mean?

Well, the bottom line is that this product is a complete waste of your money.  Taking Surveys For Cash is simply a scam that wants you to believe they hold the secret to taking surveys.  I cannot even believe this product sells as much as it does.

Do you want to make real money online and learn how to do it the right way?  It is obvious to me that you would not be reading this review if the answer to that question was No.

Check out My #1 Recommendation and see why it is the best starter platform currently available today.  Not only will you learn how to start your online business but you will be able to sleep at night knowing you are being taught legitimate techniques that really work.

If even after all this, you still want to do surveys then go to Google and search for them.  They are free to join.

For those of you who are determined to pay for this scam, then all I can say is I tried to warn you; however, I will leave you with this very common marketing tip.  Keep clicking away from their sales ad until the price drops to at least $12.  I have even seen some offer it for less than $5.  At least do me that favor and do not pay full price!

If you have any experience with the Take Surveys For Cash, let me know by leaving a comment below. As well, if anyone can speak to the legit paid survey companies out there, let us know.  All questions are welcome.

Have a great day!

  • Hi, my name is Jernej and I almost got scamed with this site. I belived them so much that I was telling my friends I am going to be rich in 1 year. Then I started thinking about this, if it is so easy why has nobody told me, or why haven’t I heard from this sites. Well because it’s a scam. So like you said, dont’ trust them, it’s to nice to be true 🙂

    • Hi Jernej

      I am happy to know that you did not get scammed. I think there are some who, because the cost is small, may be enticed to try it out. But, each small amount you pay into the next “big” thing starts to add up over time. And, what I have come to find out, a small one time fee is usually a gateway to more upsells. If we do our proper research, we will be able to avoid these sort of offers.

      Thanks for stopping by, Jernej. Have a great day!

  • I agree hose products that tell you that if you buy them you will have access to unlimited surveys that pay so much most of the time end up being scam, in most cases the good surveys are for people who live in USA, and even so there are sites where you can join to do this, you don’t need to pay for it.

    • Hi Franchesca

      Yes, taking surveys for cash is not a scam, but the way it is being presented here definitely is. And, you are correct, the companies that offer this are free.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. Have a great day!

  • Thanks for the heads up on this scam. I had not heard of this particular one, but have seen similar ones that I have rejected…

    The entire taking survey for cash niche seems to be mostly made up of scams…The payback for the time seems to be too little for the legitimate ones even for me…

    The rest of our article was also useful. The tips and advice you provide for how to watch yourself online is good and should be followed…Thanks once more and best of luck with your affilate marketing business!!

    • Hi Dave

      While I do not consider most of them scams, I do consider them to be a complete waste of time. That being said, no one should ever pay for access to surveys!

      Thank you for your comments. I am glad to know that you found the information useful.

  • Hi Kellie,
    Great site you have here with helpful information.
    I can back up what you’ve said here.
    Sadly I didn’t see this information a couple months ago. I signed up for a few survey companies, the free ones. I took surveys for about a week. After a week my eyes hurt from staring at the computer screen and I barely had any money,

    I wouldn’t recommend anyone to take surveys.
    I’ve looking into your #1 recommendation and it looks like a solid way to make money online.

    What are some perks of joining?
    Thank you,
    Randy

      Thanks for commenting. Have a great day!

  • I’m a little confused after reading your article due to the fact this seems like a paid product – is it? If so this is a complete waste of time and money. Sites like Clixsense and Neobux offer survey walls for free – why would anyone want to pay for the option? Market research companies are willing to pay for your opinon but never more than about $2 for each survey – thanks for covering this dodgy option!

    • Hi Chris

      Yes, this is a paid product. You pay for the chance to receive a list of sites to take surveys, apparently it super duper top secret…lol. But regardless of why you are paying to take surveys, the bottom line is you should never, never do it. Total scam!

  • This is one of the most well written and more importantly HONEST, helpful and thoroughly explained reviews of another greedy money hungry scam site that I’ve seen. These people who run this site should be ashamed. It’s almost as bad as televangelists that pray off taking money from people and their faith in a higher power. I am glad that there are people like you to help people separate the wheat from the chaff in this trade. We all want the freedom that making money online can afford us but sometimes it’s hard for folks to not get taken by smooth talkers and accept that everything along with making money online takes time and work. It’s better to do the work with at place like your #1 recommendation than by ripping people off.

    • Hi Brandon,

      Yes, I could not agree more. There is so much garbage out there and it is a shame that so many people have absolutely no regard for other people. Wealthy Affiliate is my number one because of the free option available, no scams, no upsells, and a fantastic community and support system. It is by no means the only legit program out there but for newbies, you simply cannot beat the cost and support.

  • Nobody earns decent money by doing surveys. The only people who make any good money out of surveys are the people who promote these kinds of programs to gullible people. Many people will struggle to earn more than a few cents from each survey, and many survey sites only give gifts rather than actual money. These kinds of sites should be banned because they are well below the minimum wage.

  • Unbelievable….. Were do these scamers get off? Never known any survey site cost to sign up and in my experience most survey sites offer little value for time spent better off learning something you can call your own wealthy affiliate is the place for that any level/skill can make there own online business with WA

  • Although survey sites are as real as the day is long, I enjoy how you degraded one product to toss in a link to one you recommend.

    Come on now, stop pulling the wool over your visitors eyes.

    • Hello

      Survey sites are definitely real, but no one should EVER pay money to obtain a list of sites to sign up with, and to even suggest that survey sites will lead to a high level of monetary success is so misleading. Those are my issues with this particular offer. And, yes, I always recommend Wealthy Affiliate over a scam because it is 100% legit, absolutely free to join and will keep people on the right path assuming that’s where they want to be.

  • William "Nuggie" Nugent

    I just across this article and I thought that U would leave a few of my thoughts…
    Let Me say thank you for the information about paid surveys for cash. I have looked into making a few buck online with companies like these. All that ever happens is that my email box fill up and my bank account dwindles.
    I will also add the only way to make money online is to do the work.
    Overall, good job. Thanks for your thoughts.

  • I would not touch this program with a stick if I had to. There is no way that you can make over $120 000 with paid surveys.

    I also do not like the upsells that are being bombarded to you after you join. In fact, you should never pay to get access to a list of survey panels.

  • Hey Kellie, great article on take surveys for cash. For the most part, I have only ever known any of these take surveys type sites to be either full out scams or at best (if you could call it that) a huge waste of time. It’s too bad that there are people out there so willing to take advantage of folks looking to earn a few extra dollars. Surely no one is under the illusion they will get rich by filling out surveys, these scammers are not appealing to people’s greed, but their desperation. That’s what makes it seem so much worse. That’s for exposing this.

  • Hi Kellie:

    I had not come across this particular site before but have tried some of the free survey sites. This whole industry is suspect in my opinion and the opportunity to make some decent money is really not there. A good number of them will only pay in gift cards and at the end of a hard weeks work, you really have very little to show for it. To me, it’s like stuffing envelopes for the 21st Century.

    Great article, thanks for posting.
    Regards,
    Howard
