"Online surveys"
July 21, 2017 by Denise from United States

I have been taking online only surveys for many years with this company. Some are short, others can be lengthy. I am always paid cash via the mail. Compensations range from $1 to $10. If you do not mind giving your opinion on a variety of topics...hey its coffee money! Plus I enjoy it.

"Great company."
May 14, 2017 by Dustie from United States

I have done a few home product testing surveys and a couple phone surveys with this company over the last 4 years. They are reliable, trustworthy and they pay cash for my time. I must admit I was skeptical the first time they left a message on my phone so I researched them before calling back. It was worth it. They paid me cash, in the mail, 7 days after I returned their call and answered a few survey questions about products my household uses. I don't have anything negative to say about this company. They are worth a few minutes if you have the time.

"Excellent Opportunity"
December 18, 2016 by Christina from United States

I received a survey in the mail through Scarborough Research with a $1 bill enclosed. All they asked me to do was fill out a VERY QUICK survey and in return they would send me $5. Needless to say, I DID receive the cash payment as promised. I was shocked to actually even receive it so quickly. Since then they have contacted me by telephone to do additional surveys. I'm very impressed with the research panel and look forward to participating in more opportunities such as this one. I highly recommend this company!

"Great Survey Company"

This survey company always pays. You do not have to collect points or wait for you to reach a certain amount before you cash out. Right after the survey is finished it will ask for your address so they can mail you a check.
