They offer really good surveys for kids, you don't have to go through the "sorry you don't qualify" after spending 20 minutes of your time. They have a lot of high paying projects. You won't get rich but extra spending money is nice.

"My Favorite"
December 15, 2015 by Lanna from United States

This is my favorite site. Now this is not one that you are going to do a ton of things on but the surveys are easy and some are very quick. This is currently only a cash reward site where you get a check in the mail but that is fine with me. This is especially great if you have children as that is what the surveys are for. I have heard that they are going to offer Amazon gift cards soon and that will make it even better.

"One of the best"

Short survey with awesome pay! Try it out. I have cashed out three times this month.

"Love them, so do my kids"
August 31, 2013 by jill from United States

This is a very fun panel for my children, as well as for me. Sometimes they want my opinion as a mom, but mainly it's for my kids. They look forward to the surveys- they get to watch episodes of potential shows on a popular kid's channel.They feel their opinions are important.

"Points add up fast to cash out!"
August 25, 2013 by candy from United States

I like this site; when there is a survey it is worth usually like 2000 or more points, and you have to reach 10000 points to cash out; I request a check and they pay asap. Very very good survey site!
