GlobalTestMarket is a scam that extracts all the information it needs using the "profile survey," and users will never qualify for a paid survey. There are no real paid surveys on this site, do not waste your time.


Mommytalksuverys.com

Mommytalksurveys targets new mothers, claiming, "Shared experiences between you and your baby are the most rewarding. Now earn cash rewards for sharing your opinions with us." Earnings for m ost of the listed surveys range from one to three dollars, and cash out is at twenty five dollars.

But there is a catch. Just as with GlobalTestMarket, users have complained that following a ten minute pre-survey using questions closely related to the actual survey, they have been unable to qualify for the actual survey. It is now thought that there are no paid surveys on the site, as the pre-surveys provide all the necessary information required by the client company.

Based on reviews like this, it is recommended that no one wastes their time signing up to Mommytalksurveys.

MyPoints.com
MyPoints offers the opportunity to earn points for doing what you already do online: shopping, reading emails, playing games, searching the web, taking surveys, and more. Users can then convert those points to gift cards for stores and restaurants of their choosing.

However, upon reading the fine print, users will learn that no gift cards will be dispensed until they sign up for at least one "sponsored offer." And of course these "sponsored offers" require credit card details. Again, as it is not advisable to divulge credit card information, it is not worth joining MyPoints.

There have also been a number of complaints about MyPoints mysteriously closing user accounts as soon as a payout is requested. Based on the volume and consistency of negative reviews alone, it seems reasonable to say that MyPoints is a scam.


MySurvey.com

MySurvey, which is owned by the consumer research company, Taylor Nelson Sofres, pays users to participate in consumer research surveys conducted by various participating companies. There is also a referral system that allows users to earn when they recruit new users to the site.

MySurvey.com actually pays in points, which can then be traded for cash, with one thousand points equaling ten dollars. Ten dollars is the minimum cash out amount.

Referring new users wins a user one hundred and fifty points ($1.50) for each person who qualifies and actively takes surveys.
