FindParticipants Review





i have been with this panel, findparticipants, for a few months. so far i have been invited to 3 studies, one being completely voluntarily and the other 2 involving a raffle/sweeps for the incentive. so obviously not ideal but since the amount of participants for these surveys is probably low your odds are much better winning a prize here than with some of the other big name sites. that being said, i haven't won anything yet :(



that doesn't mean there aren't any paying sites here, their site says there are, i just haven't been invited to any yet. nevertheless, it is worth the signup just to see what comes your way. if anything else, i find research, more academic-based surveys are far more engaging and interesting!

Invitation to a new online community, the League


my-take has just launched a brand new online community, the league. it involves members that are active and may rely on sports medicine to help them along the way--think neck, wrist or back braces.

right now they are accepting new members. if interested leave your name and email in the comments below. i will delete your email once i forward you the screener.

no word on incentives yet. the site simply states:

Will I receive anything for my participation in this panel?
We appreciate your continued participation in the panel and your feedback is invaluable to us. Active members in the community will be incentivized for their time.
good luck!

Focus Groups Round 7

it never ends! i truly believe the number of focus groups cannot be conquered. i know it's a pain reentering your info over and over but scoring a few $100 studies makes it all worthwhile! take 30 minutes and sign up with these sites now! i also will highly suggest investing in a webcam NOW. so many studies require them now and you are excluding yourself from many high paying opportunities if you don't have one. it is $30 that will pay itself off in spades.

OpinionPLUS Survey Site.


i don't know if there is anything truly unique about opinionPLUS other than the fact that they automatically pay you via paypal when you reach $10--no requests necessary!

they also are global and open to anyone age 13+. also like many sites, you can go to their site directly and view all open studies. currently there is no referral program. while i don't do all the surveys sent my way, i will complete the short 5 and 10 minutes ones easily and it's always a nice surprise when you get an email they just deposited $10 into you paypal account!

Like Beer? Join The Tap Community!

*REGISTRATION CLOSED!*


the tap is a new online community about beer and they are currently allowing current members to invite friends and family to join the site. i just joined as well so i am still quite the newbie but what is really nice about this community is that you are guaranteed a reward each month you participate.

Will members receive anything for participating in activities?
Yes! Participating members will be awarded a $10 gift card every month.
$10 a month for being active on the site isn't too shabby plus they said there may be more opportunities for product testing and online focus groups. the site is run by my-take.
the screener survey is available by invite only so if you live in the US and are interested-- just leave your email in the comments along with your first and last name. i will delete your email once i send you the invite. don't delay! they will probably close new registrations soon once they hit their quota!
cheers!

iSecretShop: Become a Secret Shop Agent!



for those of you interested in secret shops i recommend this app to start out with. i rarely do secret shops, only picking the ones very close to me at places i am already comfortable shopping in. i have done about a dozen through this app and have found them quite easy and painless. i have never had a shop rejected from them and they have always paid, although be warned it takes 8 full weeks!

they even offer web and phone based shops so you don't even need to leave the house! pay is typical for mystery shopping, not the best, and some not paying anything extra at all but of course the free service, meal or product is part of the incentive.


the app is available for both iPhone and android. i recommend downloading the app, filling out your profile, accepting ALL the individual  MSP company agreements and seeing what's available in your area. you don't even need a smartphone--you can do shops from your laptop or tablet as well.

happy secret shopping!

Qriket-Spin the Wheel and Earn Cash.


just discovered this little mobile app, Qriket. it's basically roulette--pick either blue or yellow, spin the wheel and see if you are right. you will start out with 25 FREE SPINS if you enter my code when registering:
52A853

once you use up your 25 free spins you have to earn them. short videos or surveys earn you additional spins. you also can challenge someone and wager a bet to earn more money. i can already tell this is not going to be a quick earner but it is something easy to do when out and about waiting in line somewhere. i also have seen some spins worth $2 so winning a few of those can quickly add up. you can cash out at $25 via paypal. i just started this week and have a whopping 20 cents so we will see how long it takes to redeem.



don't forget to use my code so you have lots of spins to start out with. best of luck!

my code: 52A853

update: well a month into this app and i feel this just may not be worth anyone's time. they don't give you free spins, you have to watch videos, and that gets old fast. until i figure out a way to quickly earn additional spins i am putting this one on the back burner. :(
