I received information about this survey company through an email request. Immediately, I was skeptical due to the typical survey landing page and the claims to make $100 per survey, but I decided to take a look inside.
A Looooong List of “Surveys”
After submitting all of my information, I was greeted with a long list of surveys that I could take. However, these aren’t your typical surveys. Some of the surveys do have a ten-question form to fill out but most of the surveys were links to another landing page. In order to receive credit for taking a survey, you have to give out your credit card information in order to complete a particular offer. Now, we all know what this means. SurveyTeam will be credited x amount of dollars while you get a small fraction of what they make. This site is simply a waste of time.
Always Read the Fine Print
“Note: From May 15 2007, the minimum Payout limit has been raised to $100.” SurveyTeam also reserves the right to cancel your account at any time for any reason they see fit. These reasons will almost definitely include “becoming to close to the $100 cash-out mark.” SurveyTeam also makes a number of references to “winning at surveys.” I don’t know how many times you may have taken surveys, but I’ve taken a few and I’ve never “won” one before.
General Rule of Thumb
If you have to pay to take surveys, you aren’t at a legitimate survey website. Stick with the real sites like SurveySavvy for all your survey needs and don’t waste any more time with sites like these.
