I will get the £40 eventually!

Advantages: Easy to use, regular surveys
Disadvantages: High payout
I have tried out a few survey sites over the lat few months in a bid to earn a few extra pounds. Most of them I have lost patience with or given up on but this is the one site that I have managed to stick with!
**What is it?**
Basically this is a survey site where you are paid to complete surveys online. Surveys are added daily but you need to log on each day to check as you will not be notified by e-mail so if you don't check then you will miss out.
You are paid between £0.05 and £1.00 for each survey you complete. If a cash reward is not given then you will be entered into a prize draw to win cash or other items. The reward will be stated next to each survey so you know what you will get before you complete the survey.
The minimum payout is £40 with Onepoll. Payment will be made by BACS straight into your bank account however you can request cheque payment of Paypal.
In addition to the surveys you can submit a case study detailing your experience in a real life story. If Onepoll decide to use your case study you can earn between £50 and £1,000 but they will let you know before hand and check you are still happy for them to use it.
This survey site has by far the simplest registration process. The only details you need are your name, telephone number, e-mail address and your gender. In addition to this you will need to state your country, nearest town, date of birth, occupation, number of children, marital status and homeowner status. Other survey sites I have used seem to want to know everything apart from your blood type and inside leg measurement!
The site is also nicely laid out and colourful. I have found it really easy to navigate as it is quite simple in its design.
Each day varies but on average there are two to three surveys available each day. The most I have had is six. Most of the surveys have a payment of £0.05 or £0.10, the most I have ever received is £0.20. The competition surveys all seem to offer you a chance to win an ipod nano rather than cash!
The surveys are really straight forward and take between one minute and five minutes to complete. Next to each survey on the summary screen it will state the requirements for the survey, ie you must live in Northern Ireland or have children under the age of five. Even with your profile filled in you can still click on these surveys and complete them and get paid which I find strange!
The surveys vary greatly in their topics. I have answered questions on everything from my vote on the best rock band of all time to the best shape eyebrows!
I have submitted a couple of case studies but haven't heard anything back from them. I'm not sure what they use them for but hopefully I will find out one day!
I have been using the site for a couple of months now and have earnt just over £8 so don't expect to get rich quickly with this site! I have also entered about thirty competition surveys but no sign of an ipod yet! For five minutes each day though this isn't a site to be sniffed at but I do think it will take me another six months at this rate to get my first payout!
Summary: The best survey site I have used so far
