Slowed down a little

Advantages: pay often, regular surveysweeps, paid in cash/paypal
Disadvantages: take longer to reach the threshhold now
I joined a series of survey sites about 18 months ago.... Surveyhead was one of them... at the time I didnt quite understand how they worked, in that you can visit the site not only when invited to surveys, but daily to conduct a 'surveysweep' and see whether you are eligible for surveys.
Usually this means you can continue to try for a survey until you complete one fully, and it used to be for a reward of $1 (around 70p) meaning every month or so you would reach your payment threshhold and receive a payment around a month later of £15 or thereabouts.
This made is an incredibly lucrative site because they pay you into Paypal (effectively cash) which can be transferred into your bank account and spent as and how you please....
They then changed things so that surveysweeps now pay $0.75 or around 40p so it takes longer but they also do not seem to have as many surveys as they used to meaning it takes even longer to hit the payment threshold...
I have not experienced any problems with being paid once the threshhold has been hit - but do get bored of waiting now that it takes a while to reach the limits. There was a stage where I would try to do the surveysweeps ahead of the other survey companies I am joined to, now they fall into the mill of things because it can take so long to try and find a survey which allows you to complete it, and the reward makes it not as worthwhile as other sites can be....
On the whole though - it is definitely worth having available because it does pay regularly and well, and in cash/paypal rather than vouchers....
In one year it has paid me £100 for a very casual approach to surveys, which isn't going to fund my lifestyle - but it is a nice little bonus to have on the side.... I would recommend it to anyone!
Summary: good survey site - highly recommend for regular payouts
