Short polls for you

Advantages: Lots of surveys, BACS payment available
Disadvantages: Takes a while to reach payout, surveys can randomly dry up, screen out on same questions each time
I'm a member of quite a lot of survey sites and OnePoll is one I always check first. You are paid between 5p and 30p for surveys depending on the length and most of the 5p ones are only one question. Some of the 30p ones can take up to 20 minutes so you do get a good variety.
The fact that most of the surveys are short is a very good selling point as it's a site you can pay a visit to when you have a couple of spare minutes, unlike most other survey sites where surveys last an average 15-40 minutes.
You reach payout point when you get to £40 and you can choose either BACS or PayPal. I choose BACS to avoid the PayPal fees. The amount of surveys you receive in a day can vary; some days I can earn around £2, other days I earn nothing. It seems to be taking me an average of about two months to reach payout. Once payment is requested, it takes around 10 days to receive it, although they do say it can take up to 28 days. I suppose this is to cover their backs.
Surveys pop up very regularly throughout the day and are often only available for a very short time so you do have to keep checking often to make sure you get your fair share of surveys. Unlike other survey sites you don't receive an email when surveys are available so it's up to you to keep checking. This would be impractical anyway due to the vast volume of surveys that are available, it would fill up your inbox!
I've heard of some people complaining that surveys tend to try up when they are nearing the payout point, with some people being stuck on £39.90 for weeks on end. I haven't had this problem; yes surveys do dry up randomly, but it doesn't seem to be at any specific point. It happened to me when I was on £18 so I think it's just random.
The only thing that frustrates me is that you can sometimes get a whole page of available surveys, only to be screened out of every single one on the same demographic question. For me, it's always "What is your marital status?" I select "Cohabiting" and am always screened out without fail. It would be better if you could fill in your profile once, telling them this, and they don't send you any that you don't qualify for. Instead, I waste time answering the same questions and getting screened out every time.
Summary: Good way to earn extra pennies
