Survey Monster Business Review

by David Harris

“Survey Monster”, found at, is a paid surveys site, which is to say it’s more of a portal that advertises their third party clients’ survey sites you go to in order to take their surveys.

As Survey Monster states in their disclaimers – always read disclaimers – there is no guarantee that you will earn any money using their system. I will tell you why that is, even though they leave that part out.

Since you have to leave the Survey Monster site to take those surveys, you also have to get paid from all those different sites separately. There are a few issues with that.

One issue is that most of these third party sites have a minimum payout cap before you can get your rewards, gift cards, and if you’re lucky, paid through PayPal.

Sure, Survey Monster can send you to a bunch of different survey sites and you may be able to qualify for some of the surveys but they are not all on the same site.

When you consider all those minimum capped hoops you jump through, it may be quite a while before you run into a previous site you took a survey on.

When you also consider that some of these surveys don’t pay out much more than 2 to 5 bucks a survey, it may take considerable time before you get anything from any of them.

This is no kind of sensible way to make money or hope for points and gift cards, much less make a living on, as Survey Monster would have you believe on their front page.

Another issue is that some of these third party clients actually deal in product trial testing. Many of these charge a fee to either join or to pay for the products to test, which is ludicrous.

However, Survey Monster is not responsible for anything outside their site, so good luck getting refunds or figuring out who to get them from. Especially when you can’t remember what is what. If you’ve done a bunch, keeping track of it all can be daunting

Then another issue is spending lots of time signing up for each third party’s site membership opt-ins, sometimes paying a fee to join. Some even go as far as to ask your social security number

The worst part about those is that many people forget to return the products in a timely manner and then get charged the full amount, which is far more than anything you would be making for testing their products.

If any of this does not bother you then, by all means have fun as your hobby with Survey Monster. I won’t call it a scam, but I definitely won’t recommend using their service.

I do, however, recommend “Survey Junkie” as it is a much better option…
