Survey Junkie Reviews – Legit or Scam?
from 28 reviews Review It


Survey Junkie, located online at, is a website which offers their members the ability to participate in various forms of market research through a variety of companies in order to earn money from home.

Their website says that with them, you can receive surveys earning between $2 and $75 each, as well as participate in focus groups at up to $120 an hour, and evaluate new products in trials which allow you to keep the products for free.

Signing up with Survey Junkie is free, and only requires an active email account as well as for you to fill out a short questionnaire that will allow them to match you with the appropriate surveys and panels.

Does Survey Junkie Work?

Survey Junkie is not actually a real market research website. Instead, they are more like a lead generation website – they get all of your contact information and instead of supplying you with the actual surveys, they match you with the actual survey providers.

After you submit your questionnaire, you will be asked if you are interested in “more information” on a variety of different opportunities, which is the same as giving your permission to their partner websites to contact you with advertisements and offers.

Once you have bypassed this part, however, they do match you with companies that claim to provide market research opportunities, such as IPSOS.

Is It Safe?

Legit market research companies are safe to sign up with and offer you real ways to earn extra money from home. In general, you can expect to receive a few survey opportunities each week for a payment of $1 to $3 per survey, on average. These companies will generally pay you in cash or gift cards to major retailers like Amazon.

There are, however, many different ways for scam websites to pass themselves off as market research companies. Sometimes they pay you in “points” which then allow you to be entered into a “sweepstakes for prizes” – which means that you will rarely receive any compensation for the work you are doing.

But the thing to be most aware of is “offers” and “trials.” Survey websites will often provide these opportunities to you, and they will pay much more than taking a basic survey.

However, these opportunities require diligence and caution, because often if you do not pay close attention to the details of the offer, you will actually end up spending more money than you will earn for participating in these offers.

    Survey Junkie is a total scam!! I the points system is so rigged that you would have to complete hundreds of surveys before you are paid and most of the time they tell you the surveys with the higher points are filled and you don’t qualify for them. I just went through a ten minute survey worth 25 points only to be told I don’t qualify in the end and I would be only getting 5 points….Never again will I bother with this! Its a waste of time!

    This is hilarious! After the e-mail saying my account was disabled, I responded and mentioned that I would be giving them lousy reviews on every site that will listen and I swear, % minutes after I sent the message, they responded that they were sorry for the inconvience and I can now redeem my points, which went directly into my PayPal.
    May I suggest if you are having problems, threaten to expose them, and maybe then they’ll pay.It’s what I had to do. LOL BTW the page is now loaded with available surveys. SMH

    So I just got an E-mail from Survey Junkie saying my account has been disabled for one of two reasons:#1 my country is not supported by their system #2 I have multiple accounts with them and I cannot be re-instated.
    This is the funniest s##t I’ve ever heard! They just threw 2 reasons I may have possibly been disabled just to not pay me.
    They knew I live in the US when I joined and if I already had an account, they’d know that too.
    HOW PETTY!!!

    I give Survey Junkie a “fair” rating because it too me about 6 days to reach the $10 cashout amount (I actually have over that) but everytime I try to redeem for my Paypal I get a banner saying, “Redemption is temporarily disabled”
    I’ve sent 2 messages through the “help” center and have yet to get a response.
    Right now, this is DEFINATELY scammish behavior, BUT, if by chance they actually pay me, I will come back and post positively. Right niw, not so much

    Here is the real scoop people even if your denied a survey you still get 2 to 5 cents for your time.On occasion you get nothing.Make sure you give your ex girlfriends phone number and email though spam and calls got so bad I turned my phone off.I get about 100 b’s emails daily easily.You can make money but here is what happened to me.I was suspended for 4 days and two times I went 4 to 5 days with not a single survey.I have cashed out three times but they hold you back from making 75 a month lack of surveys.Here is a good tip honestly just do surveys until they run empty.Be honest when you answer questions if you see a survey where a box gives you no option to pick what applys to you leave do not b’s them they know when you doing it trust me.Anyways once you done with them move on to SwagBucks and Vindale research.I maxed out 7.50 on Vindale the first day every survey I did was.75 cent a pop.You can’t cash out till you hit 50.00 bucks is the down side.Now when you max out with Vindale run to Swagbucks and do every single survey till you run it empty.So I do Vindale surveys first and Starbucks second and Survie Junkie last if and when they send you surveys which is three to five day dry spells.Vindale will send you emails daily but Starbucks does not you got physically log in.I was cashed out Swagbucks 25.00 bucks but they have Amazon cash out cards 450 points and credit you 5.00 bucks so a free .50 cents ain’t bad.Swagbucks and Vindale survey offers are doable daily.Survie Junkie is the weakest of the three.I burn 6 to 8 a day between the three sites.Very doable to make 100 a month with the three combined.I repeat do nothing but surveys and once you done go outside and enjoy life.

    I filled out 20-30 surveys on survey spot which was through inboxdollars whom I never registered with .Survey spot offered me so many surveys for $2.50 each and I filled out many . they said I made 5.50 only, which was 5.00 for signing up and .50 for filling out my profile. They never credited me for the many paid surveys of $2.50 each and now I tried emailing them but they keep coming back as incorrect addresses or if I do get an email through successfully they have never answered or explained why I wasn’t credited for those many $2.50 surveys I filled out.Many years ago I would get a call and go to a focus group or watch a tv show and give my opinion, like a survey and get paid good money , like between 50 and 100 dollars for less than 2 hours. We would get paid that day and I guess thats why I believed this was legitimate I was a bill collector and a terrific skip tracer for 30 years and I will find them but its a big scam and they never paid me one cent and owe me at least $50.00 and I cant even get to talk to them.

    I was registered with Survey Junkie a few years ago and was trying to participate with them again. Wow, they would not accept my email address no matter which one I chose and I could not get my old password that I forgot. Neither could I start over by registering anew, what a disaster. I spent several hours trying to make it work and in my frustration I finally was able to send a contact and used the wrong email.

    These “survey” sites need to STOP the false advertising on Craigslist! They ARE NOT ‘Article Writing’ sites as their come-on suggests. I am getting very fed up of this nonsense. And no, I don’t have all the time in the world to continually sign up for more survey sites and get paid NOTHING!

    I think it’s a waste of time .. If filled out countless surveys and either they say something like “Sorry, you are not the right target group for this survey” or I get paid in points that enter me into a “big draw” at the end of the month! .. Oh and their apparently keeping the fingers crossed for me .. ya ok! I don’t think it works, and as for all the positive post on this website, others should keep in mind that it can be survey monkey promoters attempting to pursue people into joining.

    I’ve had a good experience with Survey Junkie. I think it’s important to understand what the website is all about before you get started. It doesn’t directly provide surveys, but connects you to market research companies that you have to register with to receive surveys. I like that Survey Junkie is free and doesn’t ask you for any money whatsoever. Sure, you’re probably not going to become a millionaire taking surveys online, but I think it’s a good way to make some extra income and Survey Junkie is a good website to look at to connect you to different market research companies.

    In response to Kellie, I think it’s pretty easy to stop receiving emails. There should be an “unsubscribe” at the bottom of the emails that they send. Or, you could probably contact their customer support to stop receiving emails.

    I think the survey companies will pay you with a check or through PayPal if you want. Because Survey Junkie doesn’t pay you directly, you have to check with the survey companies to see which method of payment they do.
