  1. This post felt like keyword stuffing. It reads like a robot wrote it, and it makes me wonder if it’s just paid promotion.

  2. While I constantly got surveys to take, when I signed in, they were always full – unless you sit waiting for them to come in. Even so, they still tell you, “Yikes, the survey is full, or “ uh oh, you are too late”. It became a waste of my time.

    • I’m sorry to hear that. Perhaps you should try a different site. You might find one that works better for you. On our website you could try one of our survey sites. I wish you luck!

  3. I’ve been doing Survey Junkie for about 6 weeks and have made almost $90- and they do pay! I had an issue this week that told me to contact customer service before I could redeem my points. I contacted them and the next day I was able to redeem them with no problem. It’s a great way to make extra money just sitting on your couch. You definitely won’t get rich, but it’s nice to know it’s there if I need it. Good luck to everyone and happy surveying!

    • Thanks for letting us know of your positive experience with Survey Junkie.

  4. When I joined Survey Junkie I was told I could redeem my points with an Amazon card. But, when I tried to redeem them, they said I couldn’t get an Amazon card, I could only get the money put directly into a bank account, which I don’t want. This doesn’t see right. I’m waiting on a reply.

    • You did the right thing by contacting them. I hope you are able to get the situation resolved quickly. It might also help you to check out their terms and look in the help center to see what their policies are and also look through some of the FAQ’s. That might tell you all the ways you can redeem your points. Good luck!

  5. THIS IS DEFINITELY A SCAM. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME!! I tried it for a few hours one day, and when I finally reached $10, I attempted to cash out. I tried to cash out via PayPal first, and then with the gift card option. It told me both times that there’s an error. The only way it was going to allow me to “cash out” was through a bank deposit, and no way in hell was I gonna try that crap. I wrote an email to the support team, and 2 days later, when I saw a response in my inbox, I clicked on it and it disappeared. Stay far away!!

    • I’m sorry you had a bad experience. Did you contact them about it?

  6. Survey Junkie has gone off the rails. You seldom get disqualified from a survey until you are at least ten minutes into it. After attempting every day for a month, the closest I cam was a survey I spent 25 minutes on. The survey said I was finished, but then I still got the notice that the survey was filled and I received three points. If you contact them through the help link they just send you a standard reply.

    • I’m sorry you are having trouble with them. That does sound frustrating.

  7. I am so disappointed in them. I’ve been trying to collect $10 for six weeks. 🙁

    • I’m sorry to hear that. If you haven’t already done so, I would try using their contact information to let them know of the difficulties you are experiencing.

  8. I am not sure what’s going on with Survey Junkie the last couple of days. I have used them for a few months and have made some money. I now have around $16 built up and have been trying to transfer the funds to my PayPal account. The response I got was that they were going to contact me to verify my account activity and account information. So, I have emailed them 3 times now, and still received no response. Just now I can’t even sign onto their website. It keeps coming up as an error reaching their site. What’s going on? Are they having problems? I am having trouble contacting them now that I can’t access their website. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.

    • It might help to contact them on a different device. For example, instead of using your computer, try contacting them through the website on your phone. You might also need to clear your computer’s cache or do a shut down, restart. That sometimes helps too. Good luck!

  9. Don’t sign up for Survey Junkie. They’re cheaters. They let you earn money at first and then stop sending you surveys. I have $12.45 available that I can’t cash out. When I contacted them, they tell me I violated something, but won’t tell me what it was.

    • I’m sorry you are having trouble with them. You could always try one of the other survey sites we have listed in other posts on our site. Maybe you would have better luck.

  10. This is 100% a scam. It took forever to get to a redeemable point level. I tried to redeem points but had to change my password. After doing those two things they locked me out and said I violated their terms and conditions. But, if I disagreed, then I should reply to that email. I did that a week ago but got no response. Do not waste your time! It took ages and ages to get to a measly $10 level because almost every other survey was full or said I did not qualify. I don’t quite get what their game is or how it benefits them unless they are somehow gathering and selling contact information. But, it truly is a massive waste of time and a scam. There is no phone number and no access to customer service other than the “support” email that I used, which has gone unanswered for over a week now. There’s also no mailing address. That stinks to high heaven of a scam.

    • I am sorry you feel you were scammed and thank you for your opinion and comments.

  11. With today’s tech hijinks everywhere, does it seem reasonable for a site to make available “badges of authentication” which could serve as an identifier for the original person and contact involved? Just like a trademark, this would clarify and ensure the line of authority and could be assigned to the single encounter or link fully to follow with the name (ie, identifier). Would a small stamp of validity help to rule out impostors? It could seem to be a practical move.

  12. I took about 75 surveys and got up to $9.10 before the surveys stopped. I have been trying to get surveys to cash out at the $10 cash out limit and there are never anymore surveys available. I got in touch with support and was told it could be up to 7 days for a reply from them. Wow, that’s terrible customer service and a waste of my time. Now they have my information and I get nothing.

    • I’m sorry to hear that you are having trouble with Survey Junkie. Maybe you will soon get a reply and additional surveys. If not, we there are other survey sites. In addition, there are plenty of other ways to make money. Check out the other posts on our site to find more ways you can earn cash and gift cards.

  13. How can I start earning money?

    • Use the links and other information in this post to earn money. We also have more posts about ways you can earn money on this site. Be sure to check them out and I wish you good luck!

  14. I too was told I violated something but never could find out exactly what I did wrong. I had been taking surveys for them for some time. I have a balance sitting in my account but cannot cash out because it is just under $10.00. I have sent several emails to them since last May and still did not get any answers to my questions. Is this a regular thing with this website – they let you earn x amount of dollars and then cut you off at the knees saying you violated their terms. I have never had this problem in my history of doing surveys for other websites. I feel violated by this survey site.
