What a fun company---and yes, we are talking pens here. I can't say I have had a pen put a smile on my face before but Zebra has done it. Zebra has a full line of professional writing instruments for home and office and I was able to test out their Z-Grip Ballpoint Pens in the Safari Collection.

*ALERT! I BELIEVE THIS COMPANY UP AND FOLDED. I WAS UP FOR A PAYOUT TOO. *
here is yet another newer survey site to join. while nothing truly differentiates yousay! from all the others, this site does give you 100 pts. for every disqualification which is most definitely on the high side. plus you instantly get a $5 sign up bonus which is already 1/3 of your redemption threshold! they also offer an app for apple and android to take surveys on the go.
when you hit 15,000 pts. you can redeem for a $15 paypal deposit. payment is pretty quick too. here is the link to join:https://www.yousayonline.com/survey/html

UPDATE! AS OF 4/1/16 THEY HAVE DISCONTINUED THIS PURELL LOYALTY PROGRAM. THE NEW PROGRAM DOES NOT SEEM TO INVOLVE EARNING GIFT CARDS :( AND I PERSONALLY AM GOING TO STOP USING THE SITE.
i am very late to this party but i just started it and really find it an easy way to earn rewards. i bookmark the site and every morning i quickly hit all the point earning links on the front page and then hit 'earn more' at the top of the page and complete those on the second page. takes 2 minutes and earns me 500 pts. daily. they do cap you out at 5,000 pts a month so you only have to visit the site 10 days out of the month to earn maximum pts. 25,000 pts. earns you a $10 gift card so not the greatest but it's something. there are also purell products for lesser point amounts. i have only been doing this for a couple weeks but i think i will stick with it for now and really enjoy that gift card once earned!

i have been a member of brand institute for a few years now. they are truly geared towards individuals in the medical field, but even so, i get invites from them at least monthly. since i have zero medical background the majority of my surveys involve naming a new pharmaceutical and the pay always ranges between $2 and $8. sometimes the surveys can drag and all the proposed names can start to sound the same. they pay paypal and you know quickly if you are disqualified so you never feel you wasted your time with them.
i am sure anyone in the healthcare/medical field could really clean up on this site. they also offer a VIP status (which i am) that offers additional perks like being notified first of survey opportunities, being able to refer friends and being able to go directly to the site to view any open surveys. the process of becoming a VIP involves completing a questionnaire and emailing them a copy of your drivers license/ID (which i found unusual but still complied).
paypal payment does take several weeks-- so much so, you forgot you even took the survey and it's a nice surprise! definitely a departure from traditional survey sites and worth the registration. many countries outside the USA are also accepted.

*IT APPEARS THEY MAY HAVE CLOSED UP SHOP :( .
UNABLE TO ACCESS THEIR SITES AS OF 8/1/15. *
i have no idea how i found this site but i have done 2 'shopping missions' for them and have earned an easy $40 amazon gift card each time. i just love the name: a Team Noesis Noe it all!
both projects involved a short initial online screener and then a few weeks later i was notified i was accepted. i had to go to target or walmart, locate specific toys and take a few photos. once home i just needed to upload the photos and answer some questions---easy-peasy!
register now! (and i would be forever grateful if you included my email as your email@example.com way both of us are entered for a prize!)
