Many of you have asked about making money or earning rewards online and here is a easy opportunity!

Synovate is currently accepting applications.  Sign up if you are interested as there are a limited number of spots, and then surveys and opportunities will start to come to your email.  Most surveys will take 5-10 minutes to complete, but the best part to me is that you can stop in the middle of it and come back when you get a second.

When you register, you’ll also get 500 bonus points to get started!  You should also get a survey within a few minutes for another 250 points.

This is one company that I have used in the past (when I had more free time).  They do send you good opportunities and we even got full size products to review and give feedback on.

On a side note: You will not get rich from any online survey companies, just think of this as easy Starbucks or date night money.

      Right off the bat they want your annual income. No thanks.

         That’s just for demographics. Almost all surveys ask for demographics (age, race, gender, income, # kids, kids’ ages). That is normal marketing research.

          I see no reason for income to be a qualifier.

      I am feeling very leary! To Jenny: So you think that this company is safe? I know that these kinds of companies use your harddrive as storage for cookies, etc. If you tell me that you never had a problem with them then I’ll believe you! Do you happen to remember how it works – like how many surveys are avaliable per day, etc?

      • I tend to get up to 10 a week some weeks only 3, honestly the more surveys I do the more seem to be available.  Like Lu said above, some of them you take the first few questions and find you don’t qualify, but for me with small kids, a cat and now a dog I’ve qualified for a number of them. 

        I will confess that I don’t know about the cookies, tons of sites use them but in general it’s not a bad habit to get into manually clearing them every couple of days no matter what sites you use.

          When the surveys come, are they from Synovate or another company?  I am a member but only get a couple and most say I do not qualify.  I would love to take them, but am leary of opening stuff from the ones I do not know who they are.  Thank you so much for all you do for us.

             I am a memebr and the surveys from Synovate are always from Synovate, not third parties.

      I’ve used them for about a year now and have had no problems…I use my points for Amazon gift cards…one of the better survey companies in my opinion

    • Lsylte

      Ditto to what Jessica said.  I’ve also been able to review free full size products from various companies. 

    • Lu

      I have used Synovate for a few months now. On most of the surveys I only get 100 points because it stops me before I get to the end of the survey and says “unfortunately you do not qualify” and here is 100 points.  It is taking me forever to get $5 that way. (and I have NEVER recieved free products to try)  My honest opinion is that there is many people of certain demographics taking the surveys and few of others taking them.  So maybe the younger you are or the more income you have to spend or etc. determines how well you can do with this.  I’d be interested to know if there are others experiencing the same thing.

      I have been a member of Synovate for a couple years now.  They are completely safe and loads of fun.  I do not get tons of surveys.  I might get 3 this week and not get another for 2 weeks.  But then I am pushing 40, single with no kids or pets, that knocks me out of a lot of surveys.  Once you get your profile set up you will not receive too many that you do not qualify for as they can screen them better for you.  i have received many full sized samples to try. The funniest one was when I got 3 of the HUGE tubs of Country Crock to try them and compare.  they sent them FedEx packed in dry ice. Like Jenny says, you won’t get rich doing this, I have received maybe $150 over the last 2 or so years that I have been participating.

      I had a very odd experience with this company.  At first, I was receiving surveys like crazy.  Then, for a couple months straight, every time a survey notification appeared in my email, the links didn’t work.  So, I would go to the Synovate homepage to try.  Still, links didn’t work.  I emailed them more than once to explain the problem I was having, only to be told it was because the survey had expired.  However, there were times I attempted to access the survey within minutes of receiving the alert.  I felt as if maybe I was earning points too quickly and was being “cut off.”  All in all, I only ended up with one $5.00 check for an awful lot of time spent doing surveys. My time is too valuable, so I stopped after about 6months.  Hopefully, others will have a better experience.

      I recently just started this year….I have made $25 dollars so far but now I never receive any surveys. So its not instant money you have to be patient.
