Will Survey Junkie Scam You Silly? Honest Review

Posted by in Not Recommended | 40 comments

survey_junkie_review_Does Survey Junkie scam people or what? Hey thanks for visiting my review of this opportunity. You might be curiously browsing the web, trying to see if this is another scheme aimed at getting desperate people who need money to sign up to a site that looks promising. And I would say, yeah….you’re about right on that one. If you have read my reviews and blog before, you will know that I am not the biggest fan of doing surveys for money. But to be fair, I will give an honest assessment of this particular company.

You Can Signup At Survey Junkie For Free

Obviously one of the greatest benefits of this particular program is that you can actually get started for free. There are a lot of schemes out there that charge lots of money up front in order for you to join. This is not one of them. The sign-up process was actually quite simple. All you really need is your e-mail address you will be sent details on signing up which consists of creating a password basically.

Why I Think It’s Misleading: They Are Not A Market Research Company

This is a common strategy for survey sites all around the web. They claim that they’re going to provide you with surveys to do and get paid. The reality is that after you sign up all they do is point you and link to other actual legitimate market research sites. Think of SJ is really just a company that is interested in building a subscriber list so they can bombard this list with future promotional e-mails and get credit for sending you to these companies. 

misleading

The ultimate goal of Survey Junkie is to get your email address and info.

Is It Really A Good Way To Earn Extra Money?

No. Well, I don’t think so. I’m going to explain exactly why. Could you make money by taking surveys? Yes. But is it worth your time? And that’s where it gets tricky and that’s the reason why I usually do not recommend joining these survey sites if you are somebody that is looking to make extra money. You are more likely to become frustrated than anything else.

These market research companies that do pay you to take surveys, rarely pay you that much. Just think about: if it were that easy, then everyone would be making good money doing this! But we know, not many people at all earn a significant income doing surveys.

Only Available In U.S., Canada, Australia, NZ, and UK

If you have visited my website and you are reading this Survey Junkie review, and you’re not from one of those countries, you cannot join unfortunately. I don’t think it’s a big deal because to be honest with you, I would not join this company myself.. I just think it’s a waste of time and there are much better ways to earn income and use your valuable time.

Conclusion: Is It A Scam?

I wouldn’t say it’s an actual scam myself. But I have read the friends comments from users about some people not getting paid. On the other hand I have read some testimonials of people that have gotten paid by the company. But like I mentioned before, I think SJ is more of a setup or lead capture system more than anything else. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…doing surveys just isn’t worth it!

  1. I have been using Survey Junkie for about 4 months, made about $70.00 with them. All of a sudden I am ready to cash out $10.00, and it states that they want me to fill out a survey for 50 points, gets my phone no., states I need a verification code. I can’t get the code and email there support team. They send a code, it won’t go through. This goes on and on, still not able to cash out my $10.00. Others have mentioned this too. Is there a way to report them?? Is there a better survey co?? Thanks Nanette V.

  2. if they try to scam me my dad works with the b.b.b , play with fire your gonna get burned

  3. I have $32.22 within 3 days of doing the surveys.. It is fustrationg that when your half way doing a survey it sometimes says your not qualified to take the survey so that pisses me off.. I have taken more than 30 surveys just trying to make what I have in my paypal.. Now here’s why I think survey junkie might be a scam because when I transferred the money in my paypal,that I made from survey junkie, to my bank account it says it has been completed but when I look in my bank account there is no transaction of any money coming in from PayPal.. Now it did say it will take 1business day for it to be in my account and I did this late last night around 10,so I am just going to wait and see tomorrow if that money has been in my bank account. If not screw survey junkie,no more surveys. Don’t need to waste almost my whole day doing them anymore..

    • Hi Kaileen G, I have been doing Survey Junkie too. When I have transferred the money to my bank from PayPal, it does take about 3 days. I am not sticking up for them at all, I was not able to get my $10.00 pay. I am concerned that maybe they are a scam, until today I trusted them and had no problems. Thanks, Nanette V.

  4. This pisses me off its been more than 24 hours and their talking about some id ticket nonsense and still nothing I worked hard to get 17 dollar’s and they can’t even give me that then I’ll just go on mintvine and earn money with them at least they are honest and pay people that work for it.

  5. I tried to cash out my 65.00 into my pay pal account and got the same message It would say that redemption is temperarily disabled. I did e-mail them asking what was going on and what I had to do to get my money. I did get an answer from them saying if I sent them my pay pal password they would directly put that amount in my pay pal account. No way am I going to send them my password to any account,

  6. Survey junkie has not paid me, they have this message that says ” your account has been temporarily suspended” this has happened about a week or so, I think they are thieves but they will not get away.

    • They recently cheated me too. Payout feature disabled.No answer from customer support. Don’t join this company.

  7. Yes I would say SurveyJunkie IS A SCAM! They were very nice to me at first, I’d get tons of e-mails inviting me to take surveys and it was easy to cash out my first reward of $10 by paypal. By the time I racked up more money for another $10 reward I didn’t get anymore invities and finally when I was ready to cash out I got this message…

    I have not been with them a whole year yet & I’m already getting this problem. When I sent them an e-mail they were bascially talking about I didn’t be truthful with my surveys. Most of the time I tried to take a survey it said I broke one of the “rules”. I didn’t! I only clicked on the survey to take it.

    Don’t waste your time with this site it’s a total scam.

  8. I cashed out $10 every 3 to 6 days for a few months ( I earned around $480) Then in December, the surveys just dried up.
    I e-mailed support and they responded “we only send surveys that you qualify for” BUT what I “heard” is “you’re making too much money” because I now get maybe 2 or 3 surveys a week and will only qualify for and complete 1. So only sending surveys that I qualify for is an outright lie.
    I am an honest and serious survey taker, as this is how I supplement my fixed income. and if you are anything like me, Survey Junkie is not the site to use.
    I have been trying to reach the $10 cash out since December. Out of curiosity, I’m going to see how long it takes before cancelling my membership. Good luck to everyone!

  9. Sueveyjunkie scammed me twice, i would finish their survey and they will never give me the point,they will give me 3 point after I wasted 20 minutes on a survey, it’s a big scam

  10. All survey are different and you will never get rich just make little income or nothing at all. I rather believe it for myself then read BS. I work at job just need little money get me through with misc.

  11. Survey junkie is a scam, I never received my payment. They kept giving me excuses.

  12. Redemption is temporarily disabled ‐ For your security, we’ve temporarily disabled redemption for any of these possible reasons: pending points or consecutive redemptions. Our support team reviews accounts on a daily basis and should enable redemption within 24 business hours. Please contact support if you have any questions. This is what I got when I attempted to cash out my $82 from Survey Junkie. Do you know how many surveys it takes to get $82 and it was all a waste. I have emailed them several times with no response. I haven’t cashed out in over 2 months so that’s not the issue.

    • I got the same thing
      Did you find out why????

    • I get the same run around they tell via email that they will call with a verification no. but it never happens

  13. I haven’t had any problems with it and its better if you don’t go into these survey companies thinking your going to get rich or make enough to quit your main job ! All my survey jobs are set up to pay into my pay pal or pay into our Amazon gift card money ! Filling out surveys isn’t hard work to me but relaxing esp. since I own a construction company and really work hard .

    • you own a construction company and work hard , what a big fat liar. your middle class or rich , and no nothing of poor man less pay and hard work of slavery . etc. working hard to you is seating on a computer and doing surveys ,and nothing else .

      • My uncle owned his own construction company and he worked right along with his guys and worked hard

  14. iam believe its a scam because when i took survey i never had to worry about know something about redemption points and they block the reward to my paypal account and now i can’t my reward on my paypal account

  15. My friends I will tell you this at 357 pounds and bad knees I can make 20x the money as I did with S J with very little investment all it took was my laptop a cheap Web cam 9 bucks wally mart and three payments online get this now I’m not pretty or guilty of being smart just hungry with bills to pay it was a stripper poll! I made 2,600.00 in 8 days. Reason day 3 I ran across the room jumped like David Lee Roth well bent the pole bone two ceiling joist & 3 sheets of drywall! Yea ! 2 days of pain. 1 day and some help from how had a trailer full of drill pipe and bam moved the show to the garage. Hey I know they laugh I’m not sexy naked making 5 to 6 hundred day for three hours ofacting the fool they laugh, all the way to the bank long story story short. SUCK IT SLOW !! S J… serve that.

  16. The website lets you cash your first $10 easily. but the next surveys after that are mostly scams

  17. The problem I’ve had with all these survey sites is that you have to make a minimum amount to cash out and they make it almost impossible to make that amount. Like say you have to make $30 before you can cash out. We’ll you’ll easily make $5-10 then the surveys dry up and you can never cash out. That’s happened r of me MANY times so I’ve earned a bunch of money on different sites but never got to ever cash out. Hours lost and money I’ll never get.

  18. Why won’t survey junkies pull up

  19. Very informative! An eye opener! All i need is $40 a day extra income to make both ends meet! Please help me find one! Thasnk you!

  20. this is a good site. you just have to know how to dance around the surveys. I have three accounts through them. which your not supposed to do. yes if you want to make money you have to bend the truth on the surveys. but it does work I have made over $500.00 dollars doing this. and you get real checks in the mail. your first time you have to make $30.00 dollars. before you get a check. best addivice sign up with fake emails so your main email does not get flooded with crap. but this does work. remember your going to have to bend the truth some. I’m a guy and I have posed as a women a kid what ever it takes to get the survey done feeding the family is number one.

    • If u sign up with fake emails how u get the surveys?

    • Is that not fraud?

    • I’ve never made that much usually i make about 10 dollars a week

  21. i hope it works

    • What exactly do you mean by work? That you’ll make some good money? In that case, I would say probably not.

      • While I get that I won’t make decent money, would it be enough for spending cash? Say like a carton of cigarettes or some booze once in awhile?

        • That sounds about right.

  22. Thank you, my security kept knocking me out so I checked out your site,I’m glad I did, it’s a scam, I won’t go there again thanks to you. Again Thank you
    Theresa

    • he said its not a scam

  23. Well I am broke and always trying to learn new ways to save money and make money . Ive looked into surveys and it is a big waste of time. It’s really hard now adays. there is so much competition. …If anybody knows of some legitimate savings please help!!! thanks

    • GO listen to Dave Ramsey. Life Changing

  24. I just learned about SJ & wanted an opinion from someone who knows about sites like this one. Thanks so much for your info about SJ & thanks for the suggestions for the other sites that may be a much better choice. You are a great help to me & those who don’t quite understand how some of these sites work & I appreciate your expertise. I know I will be looking you up again for other info about other sites, now that I know who to contact. Thanks again.

  25. I have just searched Google.com for websites similar to Mturk.com
    Immediately I knew it was just another website directing people to other survey companies.
    thanks for the heads up!

  26. Thank you for your honest appraisal.
