What is Survey Club? Is Survey Club a Scam? Who is Survey Club Research?
One of our readers just asked me these questions to see if these guys are legit.
I’ll do this review of Survey Club and Survey Club Research together because they are basically the same company.
Is Survey Club a scam, legit service, or a good place to make extra money online? Let’s find out.
Survey Club Review
Product Name: Survey Club, Survey Club Research
Product Type: Online Survey Directory
Website: www.surveyclubresearch.com & www.surveyclub.com
Best For: Nobody in my opinion.
Summary: Survey Club is a survey portal that I can’t recommend. As soon as you enter this survey portal, you’re in for a sea of spam and shady offers. Avoid!
Need a good survey site to make some pocket change, we recommend Survey Junkie. If you really need to make money online, have a look at my top training.
If you’re looking into Survey Club for the money making opportunity, you should check out my top recommended training instead. It has all the tools, training and support you need to build a successful online business. Plus 10 free classes to get started!
What is Survey Club/Survey Club Research:
Survey Club Research is a sister company of Survey Club, a company that has been in the online survey industry since 2005.
The supposed goal of Survey Club and Survey Club Research is to help people make extra money online by participating in market research.
They advertise cash for surveys, paid research, and coupons to help you save money.
In order to participate in either program, you must be at least 13 years of age and reside in..
- United States
- United Kingdom
Your incentive for taking surveys is to earn cash, free products, points, gift cards, and prizes by simply participating in online surveys.
At first glance, both Survey Club sites look legit.
They’re free to join, professional in appearance, easy to find their contact info, privacy disclosure statements, etc.
What Is Survey Club Really?
What Survey Club and Survey Club Research are is nothing more than of a survey portal.
Now there’s nothing wrong with survey portals, but just so you know, they act as a middle man that puts you in contact with other research companies.
The problem with Survey Club?
They put you in contact with some legit companies, but most are the time you email info is getting sold and you’ll be bombarded with… SPAM, SPAM, SPAM
You think you’re getting a bunch of survey offers sent to your mail, but many of them aren’t legitimate.
These affiliate companies and partners of Survey Club will occasionally offer real surveys, but you’ll find that few and far between.
You’ll also find very poor compensation for the amount of time required to take the survey.
Most of Survey Club’s partners don’t even appear to be legit research companies at all.
Instead they act as a guise to get your personal information by having you qualify for one of their surveys and then they spam your email with product offers.
Some even require you to give them your credit card in order to take the survey.
Warning: If any survey company requests a credit card in order to work with them, run for the hills.
Many people report taking a survey only to not be compensated and then to have a charge appear on their credit card for something that they have no idea they purchased – That Sucks!
Is Survey Club a Scam?
In my opinion, Survey Club is a scam, and here’s why:
If I’m working with a company that has stated that my personal information will be safe (only to be used to qualify me to take surveys and that in no way will I receive spam by working with Survey Club/ Survey Club Research, their partners or affiliates) and then I get spam email sent to me, then that’s a scam.
Call it bait and switch, a lie, whatever you like.
But it’s deceiving people who are simply looking to make extra money online by taking surveys, and not to be tricked into buying some other product.
Other Negative Info:
You can review Survey Club’s policy at www.surveyclub.com/anti-spam.
Survey Club even states that their affiliate partners and business partners have to comply with the federal CanSpam Act of 2003.
Maybe they’re doing business under another company name, seems weird.
Look at the screenshot below.
Now here’s in section 8 of the Clear Voice/Survey Club Research policy we see a complete clause pardoning them if you get spammed or scammed. Check it out below.
Don’t Take My Opinion…
What do past participants say about Survey Club and Survey Club Research? I went online and did a little research using phrases like Survey Club Reviews, Survey Club Complaints/Scams/etc.
And what did I find?
A long list of complaints about survey takers being spammed, some scammed, and most left with disappointment for the little compensation paid for real surveys that were completed.
Here’s a few comments I found in my search.
Do You Still Want To Take Surveys?
If you’re new to my site, you should know that I don’t advocated online tasks like taking surveys, PTC (Pay To Click Sites), or watching videos/commercials, etc.
The reason being is because most of this type of work equates to less than a few dollars/hour.
People get a false buzz that they’re earning money online only to realize that all their clicking and survey taking doesn’t add up to much.
For a legit online task company that also provides paid surveys, I have reviewed and would recommend SurveyJunkie.com. They’ve been around since 2007 and have a good reputation.
If you really want to make money online, and I mean like full time income, then you should check out the same program that taught me and 1,000’s of other just like you.
All it takes is a strong desire and motivation.
There are plenty of people who want to make money online, but few realize what it really takes to make it happen.
And unfortunately there is a lot of poor information floating around online.
There are scams out there that deceive people and offer quick cash and little effort to get it. But this does not exist. If you really want to make money online, start with a proper education.
