How to make money online - Review for Branded Surveys and Survey Junkie - Part 3 of 3

 This is not a paid review but I do have an invitation link for Branded Surveys listed in a few places because everyone that signs up gets one and it can't hurt to try.

How to make money online - Review for Branded Surveys and Survey Junkie - Part 3

I could barely get through the one month that I said I would try both sites. 

Survey Junkie just annoyed me so fast. I had used it in the past and part of me really hoped that they had improved the percentage for making the qualifications  but... No. I also thought that changes in my life and titles would also help but that was also a no. 

They do give you a few pity points for not qualifying for the survey. Around 1-3 points is what I have been seeing. Which isn't too bad because that will slowly add up. 

They also will popup surveys on on your site dashboard for 1-3 points. They are usually super short but theoretically they should improve your odds if you don't want to install any apps.

I am still against adding blatant spy apps onto my devices just for being certified to be able to take surveys. I am a little tempted to get a separate computer setup to put that crap on it instead. That I could see myself doing.

If only crypto miners hadn't destroyed the computer market. Maybe I can find a super cheep laptop to test this with?

On to the next site!

Branded Surveys doesn't count the surveys that you don't qualify for towards your monthly surveys. And no pity points either. I made more points doing the Daily Poll, formerly the Daily Survey, then from surveys.

Which explains a LOT about the number of people in the Gold Rewards tier when I first started looking into this.

Speaking of the  Rewards, I am starting to wonder if the additional percentages stack.

12+ surveys bronze = 5%

12+ surveys silver =  10%

12+ surveys gold = 15%

But to get gold you have to have completed 25+ surveys? Is it adding the percentages for the 12 or 20 or 30+ ranges together? I haven't qualified for enough surveys to find out. It would explain why so many people are in the 20,000 - 30,000 point range.

Then again, after going on their site casually for 3 days I have not been qualified for a single survey. The points are very slow going. I'm not sure I'm going to bother with it.

The irony of this test is that I think I am more inclined to use Survey Junkie. Years and Years ago when they were new they were... not good at all. Fortunatly they seemed to have fixed that.

They have really upped their game with getting you surveys that you can actually do. It only took me casually 3 days to get to the $5 pay out. So, if you are going to invest your free time I say go with Survey Junkie because you'll at least get $5.

How to make money online - Review for Survey Junkie - Part 2 of 3

 This is not a paid review.

Review for Survey Junkie - Part 2

I was looking at other lists for good sites to take surveys that will pay you. There are some that dominate others review lists that I will eventually get to but I am going to start with Branded Surveys. 

I found out that in order to use their site you have to let them sell your information. If you want to opt-out you can but you account & points will be deleted and you will not be able to do any more surveys.

They give you points for signing up, finishing your profile.

They have a secondary app they want you to get and any icon with the Pulse you are 100% guaranteed to qualify for. Might be worth it but at the same time I really don't want an obvious spy app on my phone.So I am doing this with out that additional app.

Each point is worth $0.01 and you need 500 points or $5 minimum to cash out.

To get to the $5 it take 500 surveys at a min of one point each. 

Which seems easier then Branded Surveys. But if you take into account the bonuses and referral link that Branded surveys has, then they seem almost about the same. more in part 3

It doesn't seem to offer any sort of invite code or a reward for inviting others. Which is strange because generally companies want to have some encouragement for word of mouth. Branded survey does give you a referral link to share. So I do have an invitation link for Branded Surveys which they make sure you know and see it as soon as possible.

It seems to have an app that doesn't seem very popular. 

I am going to be playing with Survey Junkie as I do Branded Surveys. But as they are so alike I am probably only going to have one more update planed for this series.
