“ Get paid to take part in market research surveys. „
I am a member of several survey websites and am able to make around £200 per year. It takes effort, but actually I feel it is worth the time I spend which I would otherwise be doing very little because at the end of the year I have a nice little collection of vouchers and payouts which I can treat my family with.
I joined Your Say Pays after seeing it advertised on another website, I thought great another one to add to the list and earn a bit of pocket money from.
It was easy to join through the website and it requested only basic information to join up, it was quick and easy.
The payout is when you reach £20, okay that may seem high but I am a member of several sites with £40 and £50 payouts so I thought it would be fine.
When a survey is available you get an e-mail with a link through to complete it, I have found the amount you earn is on average about 10p - 25p, I have had a couple of 50p surveys and I also had a telephone survey for which I was paid £1.
The surveys are quick and easy to complete, although I do get screened out of about 40% of the surveys I take, this happens with all survey companies though in my experience and whilst frustrating I do find this company screens you out more quickly than many of the others meaning you have not wasted too much time.
When you read £20 you are paid by paypal which is likely appealing to many people, personally I like to get vouchers because if I get cash or paypal it tends to go on every day things where as if I have vouchers they are saved as treats.
Now the problem is reaching that £20 ! Surveys are not very regular, I have been a member over a year and only have just over a fiver in my account. At this rate it will take me 4 years to reach payout ( perhaps I can treat myself when I graduate then lol !
So this is a simple, quick and easy site but do not expect to make any money quickly from it. I think when I reach payout I will close my account as there are many more profitable survey sites out there, for now I will keep going with it though as when I eventually get it the twenty quid will be nice.
YourSayPays is part of the Leadership Factor Ltd, which was formed in the UK in 1996 and specialises in measuring satisfaction. As a research company YourSayPays offers members the chance to do online surveys for money.
It's easy and free to join. You can sign up by visiting www.yoursaypays.co.uk and clicking a blue banner "Join the Panel". Then you need provide your personal information, such as your name, gender, residential address, date of birth, etc. You also need provide an email and a password to create an account. Once registered, you will automatically receive an activation email with a link to confirm your membership and be rewarded 50p in your account. The only criterion of signing up is that you must be over 18 years old and a resident of the UK.
Similar to most survey websites you can take part in a survey when you get survey invitation from YourSayPays. You can also visit the site and click the item of "Available surveys" to see if there is a survey available for you or not.
The surveys are mostly feedback about different company's products and services. There are two kinds of survey. One is a paid survey, where rewards are calculated in pounds and pence. The other one is a monthly prize draw survey. Depending on the survey length the rewards vary between 10p and 50p or more. If you do not qualify for the full survey you can still get a monthly prize draw as reward.
Once your earnings reach £20.00 you can redeem them into your PayPal account or for Amazon vouchers. Usually it would take 30 days to complete.
Not only can you earn rewards for completing online surveys for money, you can also be rewarded for recommending 5 friends. For every friend you recommend you will get 50p on your account.
What I like?
I have joined over 20 paid surveys websites since 2009. YourSayPays is the last one of them.
First, the layout of the YourSayPays site is quite pleasing and easy to follow. Whenever I click on any of the items, I am very quickly taken to my requested page.
Second, the survey rewards are appropriate for the time I have spent. Generally the surveys are very easy to answer and take about 3 or 5 minutes to finish. I rarely get screened out from their surveys. From my experiences with over 20 surveys website I would like to say YourSayPays surveys are most interesting. After I've completed each survey, the payment has always instantly appeared in my YourSayPays account.
Third, YourSayPays has two payment options: cash and Amazon voucher. To me both are my favourable choices. Although I have to say cash is the ultimate redemption.
What I dislike?
I like participating in YourSayPays surveys, however it seems the Panel doesn't have many surveys. That made the payment threshold a bit too high to me. It took me almost one year to redeem my first earning of £20.
To make more income you need to join in paid survey websites as many as possible. For the reason I would recommend Yoursaypays.co.uk to anybody who is interested in making money for surveys in their spare time.
Well I've been a member of your say pays for just over a month, and to be honest, they need to hurry up and send me some more surveys. In a month I've completed three surveys, one of which was for a competition and the other two were worth 25p each, so in a months membership, its given me a great 50p.
The site says anything from 25p to £2 can be made from a survey, but im just waiting on a survey, let alone a high paying one.
The advantage of this site is that is pays via PayPal. However, the downside to this is that £20 needs to be reached and at this pace, its going to take years. Money can also be donated to charity's which different to other sites and I like this element.
After the month I've spend logging onto this site a few times a day, im now considering closing my account because, for me it's a waste of time. I do like the look of the website and its navigation is easy, but what is the point in a good looking webpage when no one wants to use it because its no good.
Another survey site that I'm a member of is Your Say Pays which again rewards you for giving your opinion on various topics.
I've always enjoyed taking surveys that I've been invited to by this site as they're always quite short (no more than 5 minutes usually) and are quite fun and interesting.
Despite the surveys being fun and short, I hardly ever get to actually give my opinion because I very rarely receive surveys from them. From their website it seems that they just email a selection of people at random whenever they have a survey that needs to be completed. Although you can check the website to see if they have any surveys available that they haven't let you know about but I do find that it can be a bit of a hassle to keep signing in just to find none there. Sometimes though I have had about 10 surveys all in one go and this is when the money really stacks up.
When you complete a survey you will be rewarded and you can see your reward balance go up immediately after you've taken it. They pay from anywhere between 25p to £2 for surveys but I've found that most of them have been either 25p or 50p. So when I take a whole load of surveys at once, even for the lower reward price, it does make my reward balance go right up.
You can only redeem your rewards when you have reached the £20 mark and your money is paid to you through paypal (which means that you need to sign up if you don't already have an account) or you can donate your earnings to a charity.
It's quite disappointing really that I don't receive more surveys from this site as it's a really good reward website apart from that. I've only made £13.90 since I first signed up with them and that was in October 2008 so you can see what I mean by not receiving many surveys! Otherwise, this is a great site that pays you well for short and interesting surveys. It's just another one of those that you need to have a fair bit of patience for.
Your Say Pays is yet another online survey site - although I think you can probably work that out from the name of the company. I make it a rule to only ever review survey sites that have actually paid me for any work I've undertaken. There are far too many dodgy survey sites out there offering little or no work, or excessively high and unachievable payout thresholds that take years to reach. Happily, I can say that Your Say Pays is one of the genuine sites, and although it doesn't offer masses of work, their payout threshold is realistic and the rewards quick to arrive once you do the required minimum level of surveys with them.
Your Say Pays is part of the Leadership Factor Ltd, which is a UK registered company specialising in measuring and improving customer satisfaction and loyalty. I've been a member of the site since December 2007, and during that period have received a fairly steady stream of work from them. Surveys on Your Say Pays are not about evaluating products or new concepts - they're more about your opinions on every day issues. For example, you'll be asked a series of questions on your favourite breakfast, or about your garden or any DIY you've undertaken on your home. In fact, I'd say that the surveys on Your Say Pays are very similar to the polls you get on One Poll. However, the difference between them is that the surveys on Your Say Pays are more clearly phrased and make a good deal more sense (as well as being more highly rewarded, if a little thinner on the ground).
As their surveys are more about your lifestyle, they require very little personal information from you both when you register, or when you complete their surveys. They don't need to know what brand of mobile phone you own nor what car you drive, as you've not going to be receiving surveys on whether you're planning on purchasing an iphone or a Honda Accord. They're more likely to want to know if you prefer bacon and eggs or toast for breakfast and whether your lounge has wallpaper or paint on the walls.
~*~ How do you sign up? ~*~
The website can be found at http://www.yoursaypays.co.uk. It's a fairly well laid out site in green, grey and white. There aren't too many tabs, so it's easy enough to navigate around.
If you like the sound of the site (and don't mind sharing the contents of your breakfast), then you can join up at http://www.yoursaypays.co.uk/join.phtml. Membership is for residents of UK and Ireland only, and you must be 18 years or older. Membership is not limited to one member per household, which is a bonus if you want to sign your husband / wife / partner up.
Joining is simplicity in itself and much, much quicker than the majority of survey site registration processes. You simply give your name, email address, religion, sex, DOB, household income and the region you live in. They don't require your postal address, just your postcode. The final decision you need to make is whether you want to donate your earnings to charity or be paid with an Amazon voucher or through PayPal. That's it - you're done. It takes literally two minutes and that is all the information they'll ever require from you. There are no annoying 8-10 separate profiles to complete on this site :o)
~*~ The Surveys ~*~
For every survey that you complete you will earn around 25p to 50p. Although they claim they offer surveys offering between 25p to £2.00, this seems a little fanciful on their part. I'd say that the majority of their surveys offer either 25p or 50p. The highest paid one I've ever received was for 75p and the lowest for 10p. The surveys are always well phrased, easy to complete and the rewards commensurate with the time spent on them.
In short, the surveys on Your Say Pays are very simple and easy to complete. They're mostly tickling boxes and they very rarely require more detail than that from you. Typically a 25p survey will consist of 8-10 simple questions which literally take less than two minutes to complete. Like I said earlier, surveys from Your Say Pays are always about lifestyle or customer service. There never seem to be any product surveys on this site. You'll get asked your opinion on general things like insurance you've taken out, or what you usually cook for dinner, or how often you use your local store.
When a new survey becomes available on Your Says Pays they e-mail around 5,000 members at random. If you're lucky enough to receive an email then you click on the link and this takes you directly to the survey once you have logged in to your account. However, it's definitely worth checking the site every now and then - as even if you haven't received an email, you may well find a survey that has not been advertised to you, and you're still allowed to complete it.
I'd say on average I get 2 or 3 surveys a month from Your Say Pays - sometimes it's more and sometimes it's less. Like most survey sites, the surveys can be sporadic; you get nothing for three weeks, and then four all in one week. I'd say that 95% of the time I quality for the full survey on Your Say Pays. However, if you don't quality you get a prize draw entry - but nothing else.
As soon as you complete the survey, your account balance will be updated, so no annoying hanging around waiting for them to add credit to your account. Payment happens automatically once you go over their £20.00 threshold. It took me about 1½ years to earn my first £20 which sounds like an awfully long time, but once I sign up with a survey site I hang on with grim death until I get my reward. I'm happy to report that since I earned my first reward with the site, I'm more than half way to my next payout, which looks likely to take less than a year.
One thing worth looking out for are the national surveys from the UK Institute of Customer Service (UKCSI), which become available periodically on the site. These surveys are designed to measure how satisfied or dissatisfied you are as a customer. They measure levels of customer satisfaction (or dissatisfaction) across 10 industries and UK regions. These give you the opportunity to answer 10 x surveys each paying 50p a time. The UKCSI surveys ask a series of questions on your experience as a consumer/user of things like telecommunications, transport, insurance, utility companies and so on. So if you've been ripped off by O2 or Virgin trains you get to tell it like it is. Similarly, if you've received good service from Vodapone or More Than you can commend them too. Looking at my online account with Your Say Pays, the UKCSI surveys go live every six months, usually in May or October. It's therefore a good idea to log into your account quite regularly during these months as they're a good way to make a quick £5.00 (although you will no doubt be emailed an invite for 1 or 2 of the 10 surveys on offer, which will alert you to the fact that they've gone live).
~*~ How do they reward you? ~*~
Once you reach £20.00 you have the option of either choosing a £20 Amazon voucher or you can have the funds transferred straight into your PayPal account. The blurb on the website states that this can take up to 30 days, but I received my requested funds within less than 7 days of reaching the required £20 threshold to cash out. You don't need to request payout; Your Say Pays do it automatically once you reach £20.00.
As you approach that magical £20 payout threshold you do need to ensure that you have ticked the right box on your account to ensure that you receive the payment in the form you require (it's under My Details) so that you get either an Amazon voucher or funds into your PayPal account. There's also a third option to donate your funds to charity should you so wish (Red Cross, Cancer Research, WWF, Age Concern or RNIB).
~*~ Other snippets ~*~
The site always displays a current topic called "Are you being served?", which is basically an online blog where you can complain about poor service or recommend a company for outstanding service. Spookily enough the current topic under discussion is entitled "Ciao - misleading and dishonest surveys" posted by someone called George. He's complaining about completing one of their surveys and then being told he wasn't eligible. Sounds all too familiar to me and the 21 replies he's received mostly agree with him!
You can refer people to You Say Pays under the "Recommend a Friend" option, but they don't offer you any incentive to do so.
~*~ Recommended? ~*~
I like Your Say Pays despite the fact it's never going to be a huge earner for me. There is an average amount of survey work on offer and their payout threshold is reasonably achievable with a bit of patience. They get full marks for a quick payout when you get to their threshold. The surveys are easy to complete and well phrased when you do receive them. Added to which you have the opportunity to bump up your earnings twice a year with the UKCSI surveys.
Recommended with three stars from me.

The Leadership Factor
www.yoursaypays.co.uk is yet another survey site I joined hoping to earn money from taking surveys. I have to say that at first it looked half decent and I took 4 surveys and didn't get screened out of one which is a vast improvement.
However, the problem like so many others is that these are the only 4 I've been invited to since joining this website about 2 months back now. The cash pay out amout is £20 so I have a long way to do. The surveys I've completed so far have been sent to me on email but not regularly at all and have paid me 25 pence for each one. The surveys are generally quicker than most and only take 5 minutes at most to complete.
On the website when you enter they claim that the surveys pay between 25p and £2 but I have yet to see any other than 25p. The only good thing so far about this is that it looks unlikely you can get screened out of any of them. But then a the rate you receive the invites you are not going to get rich overnight!
The other thing I found with this site is that they don't always email the surveys. I went in the other day and found a couple more to take that I hadn't been notifed about. The good thing is that it doesn't look like there is a time limit on taking them which is good.
So, it's not a bad little site but like so many others out there I will be here for eternity before I earn enough to cash out I would say...I really think with these sites they would attract more people if they let you cash out at say £2 - £3 into Paypal. At least that way you might feel like you were earning something.
When I first discovered this website I was shouting from the roof tops about it, I thought it was great because I'd managed to earn £5 in two days, however eight months on and my balance has crept up to the princely sum of £7.10 - after completing 20 surveys. Considering the pay threshold is £20, it could take me a very long time to get there.
The site claims that you can earn up to £2.00 per a survey, but the most I have received is 50p a survey. On average I seem to get 25p per survey - that will take about five minutes to complete, but when you are getting informed of surveys approximately once a month you do wonder if it's worth it. If you log on sporadically then you will find extra surveys that you can complete, because they only e-mail 5000 people when they have a new survey, so the chances are that you could be eligible for other surveys but you aren't being informed. However, I find that I can go for days without seeing any new surveys to complete.
The other disadvantage to this website is that you need a Paypal account to collect your payout and I certainly wouldn't suggest hoping up a Paypal account purely for this purpose.
The website itself is easy to navigate and you can sign up quickly and for free. However the website is also very basic and looks rather unprofessional.
Overall I'd say that this is a poor survey site; there are definitely better ones out there. I doubt I will ever make the £20 threshold limit and I wouldn't advise anybody else to sign up with them.
Initially I was excited about this site as it was recommended to me by a friend who after 2 days had £5 in her account. I really thought I was onto a winner. But I couldn't have been more wrong. I have only been a member for a month and have so far completed 3 surveys and earned a grand total of 0.65p.
Yoursaypays claims to pay from 25p to £2 per survey, and some just enter you into a prize draw per survey and once you hit £20 they pay out, so at this rate I can expect a payout in 2 and half years. Payout is made into you paypal account or you can choose to have the money donated to a charity.
The only advantage that this survey does have is that the surveys are quite short and relate to uncomplicated topics. So far I have completed surveys about breakfast, winter hair and family values.
If your like me and looking to join sights with the intention of getting a bit of extra income i would advise you not to waste your time with this one.
I joined yoursaypays.co.uk 4 months ago and I can honestly say it is a website that I am disappointed with. I have said in previous reviews how I am a member of many market research survey sites and I am finding that most of them are actually a waste of time, unfortunately this seems to be another.
I joined yoursaypays after seeing a link for it on another site, always on the lookout for ways to make extra cash I decided to join. As always it was easy to do this, you just have to fill in a few details such as name, address etc. and you will then begin to get emails inviting you to take part in surveys.
When you join it says the surveys will be paid between 25p and £2, I think this is a little mis-leading because so far all of the surveys I have completed have been for either 10p or 25p. After 4 months I now have £2.15 in my account. The payout threshold is £20 so at the rate of £2 every 4 months its going to take me another 3 years before I get paid £20. Somehow I don't think its worth it.
You can only get paid through paypal but you can also donate money to charity, either the RNIB, WWF or the Redcross.
The surveys are really short and only take a couple of minutes but I'm sure if I was ever lucky enough to get a £2 survey I'm sure it would take longer. In 4 months I have completed 11 surveys which averages about 3 a month, this would be good if they were for a couple of pound but at 10p and 25p it's just a waste of time.
I am very disappointed with yoursaypays, I haven't really wasted much time because the surveys are so short but I would really like to see surveys that pay a little more than 10p. The name of the site is really mis-leading because your say really doesn't pay.
Your Say Pays ----Really ??
Join Up--Have your Say---Get Paid;this is the simple three step approach to earn money.Hold on this is claimed by the site not me.
I have been a member of this site close to 4 months and my experience has been really frustrating.The signup process was instanly done and only consisted of few questions on household income and few demographic questions.
I was also happy to see that there are charities like redcross,WWF,RNIB to support and the method of payment being pay pal I had absolutely no qualms to gear for this one.The pay out of £0.25 and £2 for each survey is no mince in this credit crunch time.
However REALITY BITES!!!since last 4 months I have received 6 surveys with a total accumulation of £1.50 in my account.
The site does have a section 'Are you being served'dedicated to views suggesting consumer pain points in various topics like nightmare in hotels,poor customer services to enlighten and caution others.I do not see that this section can attract anyone as voicing your pain points in this section is unpaid.Unlike other sites recommending a friend also does not pay you anything.Another section called'Latest Poll' also pays you absloutely nothing.
With very sporadic surveys and high minimum pay out I am forced to think does my say really pay in this site !!!!!!
My verdict:Stay Away from this site
'Your Say Pays' is another one of the free survey sites that I am signed up to. Came across it while looking for paying survey sites to join.
As I mentionned above, it is free to join and open to residents of the UK and Ireland.
The surveys are not very regular but the incentive ranges from £0.25 to £2. I prefer survey sites that award the incentive for each survey in cash rather than the points system some sites have.
The surveys I have completed have had an incentive which ranged from £0.25 to £0.75 so far and I have completed a total of 21 surveys and have £8.40 in my account on the site.
The surveys are short and easy to complete... Today I completed an 8 questionnaire for £0.25 and it took less than 5 minutes. The rest have been pretty easy and quick to complete too with mainly general questions and I am yet to have any with lists and lists to check off or images and cards to look at!
The minimum payout on the site is £20 and this is paid via PayPal which makes this one of the few survey sites paying in PayPal cash.
I'd recommend it but don't bank on reaching payout quickly...

I joined yoursaypays around a month ago, I found the link to it from a big survey site list, sorry i cannot remember the name of it, but it appeared to be out of date seeing as it still called toluna "test and vote".
The signup process online was very quick and only consisted of questions on household income, religion and region in the uk.
I then completed an unpaid survey to register interest in a subsequent survey on insurance, which I never received.
When you accumalate 20 pounds in your account they automatically pay it into your paypal account, also you can give the money to one of five charitys, RNIB, WWF, British red cross, Age concern and Cancer research.
As well as surveys you also are able to create polls on current consumer topics or the financial climate in the country. There also are some blogs where people express their views on topics I think suggested by the website. They seem to be majorly to do with customer service ( or the lack of it). As far as I can see there is no payment for blogging on their site, but their seems to have a nice community feel there. A lot of the posts seem to be from last year so it seems this site could have been at its peak then and has snagnated since, or at least this is how it appears
Anyway back to the surveys, it is specified that every survey will pay you between 25p and 2 pounds or will enter you into an unspecified prize draw.
When I joined there was a very short survey which took less than 5 minutes for me to complete which was about christmas which gave me 25p and then the other day I had another with only 10 questions about showering which was worth another 25p. With only 50p to show for a months membership it will be over three years before I'll get any money from this site!
For this reason i suggest you give this site a miss.
