I Was Wrong, SurveySavvy Love Me!

…well, erm, for all of 5 minutes, anyway.

I joined SurveySavvy a while back – about 5 months ago, I think.

Though it’s a US-based paid-survey company, it’s open to international users, so big mama hopped on!

They have these portraits you have to fill in (so they can figure out which surveys to send you, if any). There are 9 of those babies in total – each taking b/w 5-20 minutes to complete.

I took one look at all them portraits …and couldn’t be bothered.

I promised myself I’d go back and complete them, but everytime I logged in, my ears sagged.

I’d kinda forgotten about SurveySavvy, to be honest – so when they dropped a survey in my inbox last Friday, I was like ‘Survey what, survey who?’.

It was a 45-min survey worth $5.

I tried completing it, but didn’t qualify.

But it’s all good. It’s given me the impetus to go back and try and finish up the portraits. But I’m taking my time though – 2 portraits tops each time and that’s it. I don’t intend on doing all 9 in one sitting.


– Like GlobalTestMarket, SurveySavvy pay by cheque only, which is a bit of a bummer. Paypal would have been much better, but I guess they might have figured it’s cheaper posting out cheques.

– They send their cheques in US dollars only.

– Minimum payout is $1.

– Expect 4-6 weeks for the cheque to reach ya


Will keep you updated. We’ll see if filling in all the portraits will make any difference to how many surveys I do (or don’t) get.

I’m out…

    Hi Ajith,

    Sorry they haven’t worked out for you. I wouldn’t say they’re a complete success for me, but 2 of them seem to be fairly active (touch wood).

    Anyway, hope you’re having a great weekend.

    take care…

    I am a member of Survey Savvy and I haven’t been paid…yet, but I did finally complete a survey I qualified for and got $4 which is supposed to be sent to me soon. I just hope it arrives before I move. Normally I don’t qualify for their surveys, so it’s nice to finally get one that I did!

    Hi Zhuuraan,

    Thanks for passing by.

    Hey, at least you got one, qualified for it and successfully completed it. Good on you! Hope you get the payment pretty soon.

    I haven’t had much luck with Survey Savvy apart from that $5 survey I mentioned (which I didn’t qualify for).

    Ah well. No worries.

    take care and have a good weekend.
