Onepoll - complete short surveys for cash
Member Name: mrsyardbroom
Advantages: No lengthy screening process, immediate credit, quick and easy surveys.
Disadvantages: The payout level is high and takes a while to reach.
I've been a member of Onepoll since 2008 and for me it's one of the best survey sites around. If you want short, snappy surveys then this site could be good for you.
The subject matter in the surveys is nearly always to do with how you feel about different aspects of daily life. They never include branded products or questions about specific supermarkets, banks etc. This makes the site a bit different to many other survey sites and for me it makes it more enjoyable.
The best thing about Onepoll is that there are no lengthy screening processes. Usually you either qualify or you get screened out after the first question. On Onepoll you are not going to waste hours completing half a survey and answering pages of demographic questions before being told you're not wanted. Very often you will launch straight into the survey itself without having to tell anyone your nearest city, your marital status, your working status, the colour of your underwear or what you had for breakfast. This makes the site easy and quick to use.
The reward for completing each of these surveys is usually 10p to 25p but it can be a little more. You can't cash out until you reach £40. There is a meter on your account overview that shows exactly how much you've earned to date. Each time you complete a survey the meter goes up so there is never anything pending.
There have been lots of criticisms of Onepoll but as an old hand at completing surveys I do know that some sites suit some people a lot better than others. One comment often heard is that it takes forever to reach the payout level. What I've found is that you need to check in to the site several times a day to catch the latest surveys. The surveys appear every day of the week from Monday to Friday but they can go quickly. If you have time during the day then this will work perfectly for you. If you only have early mornings and evenings free then it you may not find enough surveys to complete.
Many people have said that they keep getting screened out when they get near the payout level. To be honest I've found this is true of other sites. With Onepoll I've sometimes reached the payout level fairly quickly but other times there does seem to be a certain amount of screening and lack of surveys before it gets to £40.
With any survey site I would say give it a whirl and see how you get on. Do give the site a chance. Like all businesses there are peaks and troughs. You may get a week or two where there's not much doing and then a week where you're completing several surveys a day so don't give up on this site too soon. Stick with it and good luck.
Summary: A great site for lots of people who are home in the day. Short easy surveys for cash.
