Has anyone ever tried one of those work-from-home jobs or those get paid to take surveys type things? I'm sure there are scams out there, but are any of them real?

I do a lot of online surveys. Most of them pay with an entry in a sweepstakes drawing for prizes up to $1000. Some of them give points which can be redeemed at various online stores or for generally useless premiums.

However, a few do pay $2-$5 for a survey or maybe $10 for participating in an at-home study of products like toilet paper or soap. However, the paying surveys generally have pretty tight requirements for qualifying, so depending on your demographics (age, gender, income, etc.) you might not be able to participate.

I have never tried a paying survey, but I do the Harris Polls, Synovate and ZoomPanel ones. The Synovate constantly has you testing new products - right now, I have shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. They send you the full size containers, not a trial size. In the past, I've done quite a bit of paper towel & toilet paper. The coolest (literally) of the product tests was Lean Cuisine panini, way before they came out in the store. This huge box arrived - it contained a styrofoam container with dry ice and the panini box. So funny.

Those surveys give you points, which you can redeem for gifts. I got a really good wet/dry dust buster type tool, and now have huge point balances waiting for something else I can use.

My sister's boyfriend takes those surveys for the cash. I think the only drawback may be an inundation of email--you may want to create a separate account just to use for that purpose.
