The one positive thing about this company is that there is no minimum to cash out, and they will send you a check. They will pay you and they are legit. However, they hardly have any surveys anymore. Most of the time, they offer to send you something to connect to your computer to keep track of your internet usage and pay you on a regular basis, based on your internet usage I assume. However, I do not recommend allowing any company to track you on any computer that you keep sensitive information or use to conduct your banking or taxes. You are just asking to be hacked. I did not drop them though, because I am remaining optimistic that they will eventually have more regular surveys again in the future.
I spent a huge amount of time setting up Savvy Connect on three different devices and an additional app on my phone for a project. Everything showed as being active. After getting a notification about my tablet, which I don't use often, I emailed to make sure everything was OK. I was then told that my computer wasn't active, and I took steps to fix it, although Savvy Connect showed as active on my computer. After they confirmed that it was now active, I inquired again to make sure that everything was OK since I wasn't getting surveys. I was then told that I was disqualified from the project after spending a significant amount of my time. When I signed up, it stated that they would contact me if there were problems and I was the one contacting them to make sure everything was OK.
They pay for regular surveys, but Savvy Connect eats a huge amount of data. It also apparently stops working for no reason, and they will use this as an excuse not to pay.
I might change this rating I don't know. I did just now request for a check for $3 just to see if it will come. We'll see.
I really do not like sites that don't work with Verified PayPal Accounts. This happens to be one of them. Now I can't say whether or not they are a RIP off yet, and I also don't think you are allowed to say things like that? I don't know.
I mentioned it because there are other reviews here claiming it is.
I will also mention their support team was friendly. I'm going to try them out and see how it goes and possibly update this review later.
Read all the reviews here but also make up your own mind.
Like most survey companies today, the incentives are becoming less, but overall I think SurveySavvy is very good. Yes, you do have to keep up with their SurveySavvy app (SavvyConnect) but then they are paying you to stay active and provide feedback so why wouldn't they. It only takes a few minutes a day to make sure it stays active. You also have to take surveys when you get them because there is a lot of competition and they are not open very long. I have also been able to get great projects from this company; e.g., recent video survey referred by SurveySavvy that I completed 12 video questions on Monday on my iPhone and was paid on Tuesday to PayPal and the money was in my bank by Friday -- $120. I just don't think you get better than that! Probably wont get anything similar for a while cause everyone deserves a chance. But it would be nice to get 1-2 of this projects a month to pay for my internet and cell service!
I've been a member for 5 years! In the early stages, you'd get plenty of surveys and you'd get compensated for them. I made $65 one time in 2 weeks. I stopped for a few years, and now that I'm back, the site doesn't give you compensation anymore. I took a survey for $1, but it never transferred to my account. What a waste. This site used to be awesome!
