OpinionPLUS paid me but

After several emails back and forth, OpinionPLUS did pay me but they aren’t going on my list. I screenshot my reply (okay threat to them) and their reply was basically that they paid what they owed me but unless I verify my paypal account they couldn’t offer me anymore surveys.

My email basically said, that they could pay me via amazon and I recommended they offer amazon as an alternative to pay people who don’t have verified accounts. I also stated that I wasn’t making another paypal account just for their company and if they didn’t pay me. I told them that I had a blog and I wouldn’t refer anyone to their company so they paid me what they owed me.

You can sign up with them but do so at your own risk and be prepared that if you don’t have a verified account to argue with them about paying you.

 

 

I also discovered a new app called lifepoints which is offered through gobaltestmarkets (they are on my list) so I am pretty sure they pay but I will let you know. Also I have been under the weather so I haven’t felt like being online, I wanted to take a few days to calm down before I wrote this post.

I am going to make a scam list for survey sites

So I am waiting for a survey site I haven’t been paid from yet to pay me. So today I get a email from paypal that a penny was dropped in my account.  I go and read the message from the company that dropped a penny. They don’t want to pay me because my paypal isn’t verified and they don’t have another option for cash out.

Ya’ll already know my feelings on linking my bank account to paypal. Which is the only way to get a verified account.  there are whole sites dedicated to people who have been fucked over by paypal. here is one another one.

So I go over to the survey site and I send them an email basically telling them that I am not verifying my paypal account and that they can send me an amazon gift card. I also told them perhaps they should also offer another way to cash out like amazon.

I haven’t heard back if they don’t send me my money either via paypal or amazon. I am making a scam site list, and they are going on it.

Proof the survey sites on my list pay

 

Vetro Analytics inc is smart panel app, I have heard some rumors that smart panel doesn’t pay as you can see they do pay.

Tango card inc is Innopoll

Augeo incentive logic, LLC is springboardamerica from the app beta I did for them a couple months ago

Perks.com is Global Test Market

Quickrewards network is quickrewards.com (they are not on my list)

Branded Research, Inc is mintvine

Atta poll, LTD is the app atta poll

OneOpinion.com is oneopinion

 

I blacked out where a friend sent me money…The sites I haven’t listed in this post but are listed on the surveys list page, pay via amazon or other gift card.

 

Sample sites and how they work

There are a lot of sites that send full size or sample size products out in exchange for a review/survey or both. You can get the samples and not do the review or survey they request but you’ll end up on their don’t send this person anymore samples list and they won’t send you any samples. There are three main sites that I personally use and those are;

PinchMe ; This site has sample days once a month and its always on a Tuesday, their next sample day is the 18th. You are going to want to like their facebook page and say your going to their sample event. That way they will send you an email on sample tuesday and remind you. On pinchme you have to go on their site on sample day and collect. You are going to want to be on there right at noon, so they don’t run out of samples before you get yours. It doesn’t say to be there at noon but as someone who has been using this site for a year, trust me you want to be there at noon.  Then do the surveys/reviews they request of you if you want them to continue sending you samples.

samplesource.com ; This site sends samples whenever they have them and sometimes with an email that you have a box coming. Like with pinchme, they will send you a survey to fill out about the samples they have sent.

getexactly.co ; This site sends boxes out every season, I believe their next box is this month. Like samplesource they will just send the box out and like the two above they want you to review their products.

 

There are some companies that if you are on their mailing list they will send full sized products in exchange for a review. Dove is one of those companies.

The problem with not having a verified paypal account

The main problem with not having a verified paypal account is….

Sometimes some survey sites won’t pay you via paypal unless you have a verified account.

This is not a big issue for me as I will just cash out via amazon or another gift card (if they offer).

I don’t have a verified account, for one I don’t trust paypal to have access to my bank account and the other is as I told a friend of mine a couple of weeks ago, I like to keep my bank account and my paypal account separate. My bank account is for my rent & my bills, My paypal account (I have a business account so I have a debt card for paypal) is for my fun money.
