    Hi Marcus,

    Really like how you’ve used questions to write out this article, great work.

    I remember when i started out online, when everything was new to me, i came across the opportunity to take surveys for cash and the surveys i saw would pay at most $10 for your opinion. Filling in surveys for money online is tiresome and boring, but there are people who make around $2000 per month after dedicating like all their time to it. $500 daily is too outrageous to claim.

    • Marcus

      Yes, I think if you want to earn decent money with something like this then you would have to dedicate a lot of time to it. But who wants to spend all day doing surveys? Surely that would get really boring after a while. It’s definitely not a good foundation for an online business, that’s for sure.

      In order to to build a solid online business, you need a good website, good training, and good support. All of these are available at Wealthy Affiliate.

    Excellent review Marcus!
    Take surveys for Cash is indeed a bad product. It is just a bait toward fake system. The reality is, the owners are trying to bombard upsells and downsells inside the membership area. Besides, who on Earth would pay that much money for merely giving our opinion? Nonsense program.

    • Marcus

      Yes, you hit the nail right on the head Edy. Any company who pays that much for someone’s opinion has a very bad business head on their shoulders. If they keep paying that kind of money to people, they will soon go out of business!

    Hi Marcus.
    I must admit that I have fallen for these scam myself in the past and very much liked that you showed us what we should look for to identify scams online. I will definitely be checking out the affiliate link at the bottom of the site next time to see what their upsells are and what the payouts are. Thank you very much for pointing that out.. very good tip. Pat

    • Marcus

      I’m glad you found it helpful Pat. My goal is to educate the world about these awful scams, because so many people end up getting taken in by them.

    I have sen this program before. Take Surveys for Cash can be done like you say for free if you do your own research. You do not need anyone to lead you to the sites that need surveys done. Good work if you keep at least one person from loosing their money on this site. The down sales are the best indicator of a scam website.
    Thanks for your information

    I actually tried to get in to one of these before but I realized they are so boring & time consuming. I dont think any of the paid for survey programs online are legit & so i stay away from them. I want something that doesnt take away too much time from me doing music but I am really interested in making money online. Do you have any recommendations?

    • Marcus

      Yes, the best way to make money online is to build your own profitable website based around one of your interests. The great thing about that is that because you are genuinely interested in the topic you will enjoy it more and be able to stick at it. The best place to learn how to do this is Wealthy Affiliate.

    It’s terrible that in this day and age people are still trying to get people to pay for the honor of taking a simple survey for money. Has nobody heard of Clixsense or Neobux? Both are legit sites where you can take on many survey providers for free!
    This Jason White dude looks a chancer – nothing more!
    Great review Marcus

    Good review Marcus. I was actually laughing to myself the whole time I was reading this review. Not too long ago I came across a website where you can take surveys and get paid for it. The payment was legit but it would take HOURS before I could actually start racking up at least $20 within a day. Take Surveys for Cash looks like another load of BS out there on the web. Thanks for this.

    • Marcus

      Yes, it’s a shame that people keep falling for these kinds of scams. While it’s possible to earn SOME money with surveys, it’s definitely not a long-term strategy for building a full-time income.

    Hello Marcus , impressive biography for Mr White….but $500 surveys every day?….hmmm…I wonder how possible this is , even a machine can’t complete so many surveys because simply there are not so many of them available.

    A lot of testimonials , another useless marketing technique.Their top affiliates earn 100 thousand dollars per month?….These claims can not be proved in no case.

    I have been participating in many of those surveys sites , I did not ever made any “good” money.Just a few dollars per a few months.Usually I got kicked out of them due to demographics and other reasons.

    You found a lot of negative reviews online , undoubtedly , this one sounds like the worst products ever.

    What company would you recommend as a legitimate and worthy opportunity in online surveys?…Still I can’t find a decent website that pays well.

    Very nice expose , too good to be really true.

    • Marcus

      i wouldn’t recommend surveys at all as a good way to earn money. To earn decent long-term money online, the best way is to build your own profitable niche website, and the best place to learn how to do that is at Wealthy Affiliate.

    Hello! I have never paid money for taking surveys. I have taken surveys for money and have never been paid that much for them. I used to do Pinecone Research and I have done surveys on Swagbucks and Inbox Dollars and Send Earnings and Quick Rewards. The money was not much but it has come in handy. Now that I’m working on my own website I do not have time to take surveys. I’m glad you have this info on here so that others may not make the mistake of wasting their money on this website.

    • Marcus

      Yes, that’s the key thing here: if instead of spending time doing surveys you spend that time building up your own website, you will earn more money in the long term.

  10. Mike

    I really like the way you assessed this outfit and called it like it is! It’s amazing that they want you to believe that you can make tons of money without doing any planning, offering and value and doing almost no work. That being said, do you have any positive recommendations on survey outfits or do you think they are mostly to be avoided?

    • Marcus

      Hi Mike. I would say it’s best to stay away from doing surveys. While it is possible to earn some money or get some rewards, it is not a good basis for longer-term income. For that, you’re better off looking at Wealthy Affiliate.

    Hello Marcus,

    Thanks for providing your review of the Take Surveys for Cash website. I agree with your opinion that there are contradictions and outrageous claims that make this seem like a total scam website.

    Have you been able to find out if the picture you posted in your review is in fact the same Jason White?

  12. Devin

    I’ve had a lot of trouble with the online surveys in the past. I always end up getting partially done and then it lets me know that I don’t qualify for it, it can be pretty frustrating. It makes me wonder if there is a magic key demographic or if it’s just different each time.

  13. Viljoen

    I agree with you on the awful part because how the hell can you charge money just for a list of surveys and then there is also upsells to consider. This just makes my stomach turn because you can get a whole list of survey panels for free if you search for it in Google.

    And I am sorry but it is just impossible to get $500 for a survey. Thanks for warning everyone.

  14. Bimmerguy

    Thanks so much for the review on take surveys for cash. I was considering joining this site until I read your review! You made me see that the things they offered were in fact too good to be true. This is a real eye opener for me. Thank you so much for the great information, I truly appreciate it! Keep up the good work!!

  15. Jose

    Wow I really like how honest you are when reviewing sites, I was almost about to join until I came across your site. Your website really helped me who knows what I would have been doing right now, wasting my time, taking useless surveys and making little money. Thank you for posting this you saved me lots of time and trouble. Peace

    • Marcus

      Thank you, Jose. I’m glad I saved you from signing up to this nonsense of a website. If I can prevent just a few people from being taken in by these scams, I am happy.

  16. Jeff Lenney

    Great Review Marcus, but Jason White doesn’t exist just FYI – just a made up persona, I’m not sure who is really behind this, but just to confirm – YES the check is photoshopped, as well as the image showing “typical surveys”. Most surveys in their site pay something like $1.75, $0.75, $0.50. Nobody’s going to pay what they claim to for surveys 😉

    Great review man!
