Of course, I hadn't in mind that I would become rich overnight but I was curious about it. I opened an account with PaidViewpoint and followed their instructions to the letter.
Basically, you start by filling daily surveys that will earn you 0.03$ a piece. They say that they will pay out when you've accumulated at least 15.00$... At this rate, it should take a while to see some cash.
At some point, I finally got more rewarding surveys from 0.25$ to a full 1.00$. So maybe it was a way to make some money just by answering a few questions once in a while.
In the last few weeks, daily surveys became weekly surveys. And they do not worth a lot (0.03$/each)... I currently own around 8$ and I still need at least 7$ to claim my due.
The idea is probably to get you to fill surveys until you get tired of it and actually never reach the magic 15$ reward. I would not call it a scam, but it surely does look suspicious at some level.
Anyway, I will keep answering the surveys for a while to see if it will change by the end of the summer.
One thing is sure, ads on your website/YouTube videos do pay you more than filling surveys. Forget about surveys, the payout is really not worth it.
Have a great day!
