Alternatively, choose to receive an Amazon voucher. Surveys pay anywhere from $0.40 - $10 each.
Types of Surveys Offered
Online surveys on everyday topics, brand-name household products and current issues. Crowdology stresses that their surveys are not boring!
The surveys themselves are quite short, ranging from 2 to 20 minutes in length and award cash upon successful completion - there are no complex points systems to worry about as cash is awarded each time a survey is finished.
Sweepstakes are held sporadically and usually upon registering to the Crowdology panel. You can also be entered into sweepstakes by sharing Crowdology with your friends via email invite.
Some of the prizes Crowdology members have won include Bose Quiet Comfort Noise Cancelling Headphones, Spotify Premium Subscriptions and ASOS Vouchers, just to name a few.
In order to withdraw from your account, you will need to have at least $8.00 in your Crowdology account (or £4 in the UK) as well as a PayPal account to transfer your Crowdology funds to. This company does not pay out rewards via check. The time between the request and the balance landing in your PayPal account is on average 48 hours. Also, if you use Amazon Payment, it could take up to 4 weeks before you see your money.

I joined last week. Received two survey invitations and both times I received the following message when I clicked on the link in the email, "We are sorry to inform you that you have not qualified for this survey. There are many reasons why people don't qualify, which include, but may not be limited to, not fitting the screening criteria, not providing quality responses or other reasons defined by our end client." And that is the message I received without even being asked any questions! Doesn't make sense.
If I get one more like that, I'm going to delete my account. Just wished I hadn't spent more than a half hour filling out all the profiles.
12/29/13: Well I ended up cancelling my account because out of the four survey invitations offered me since joining, three had the following message, "We are sorry to inform you that you have not qualified for this survey. There are many reasons why people don't qualify, which include, but may not be limited to, not fitting the screening criteria, not providing quality responses or other reasons defined by our end client".

I have just claimed a payout which has already appeared in my PayPal account before I could bat an eyelid. Another of my favourite sites that I cannot recommend highly enough. Varied surveys of good frequency, and excellent payers.

Granted, Crowdolgy don't bombard you with surveys, but with a low payout level of £4.00 paid via pay-pal, it doesn't take that long to accrue a few payment. Nice and easy and user friendly.

The majority of surveys I receive from Crowdology are short, punchy and fun. They pay only pennies for these brief, snappy questionnaires but when you calculate this into the equivalent of an hourly rate they actually compare well with other sites. Best of all, their payout threshold is a mere £4 so if you combine this with the fact that they send surveys every few days, it isn't long until you can claim your reward. When you do request payment (Paypal), the transaction goes through in minutes. Many of their surveys come in the form of short quizzes and they really are fun to take.
From time to time slightly longer surveys paying up to £2 (ish) also come along.
So to summarise, you won't get rich by offering your services to these guys, but you will be sent surveys frequently. You will rarely be bored with their fun, quick surveys. You will reach your (low) payout threshold very quickly and when you do you will be paid almost instantaneously.
One of my favourites.
