There are a few surveys sites I haven’t heard about before, and GetPaidToTry is one of them. I believe the more survey sites you try, the better your earning capacity will be, which is why I decided to, uhm, try GetPaidToTry.
So here’s my GetPaidToTry review. Wanna know if GetPaidToTry is legit? Read on.
GetPaidToTry: First Impression
The first thing that caught my attention with this site wasn’t the design or the content, it was the name - “GetPaidToTry.” It’s a funny name, and it made me wonder, does the site pay me just for trying (and not doing)?
My Hot Take: I didn’t hesitate to register, but I wasn’t super-excited, either.
How to Earn on GetPaidToTry
Based on that name, I thought I would get to try sample products and write reviews. Nope, GetPaidToTry is a plain old survey site. You answer surveys and earn cash in exchange for your opinions.
I always enjoy taking surveys, but most, if not all, the surveys on this site have pre-qualifying surveys. The site uses these to pre-determine if you’re a good match for the survey (for example, a survey about alcohol will not be a good match for a teenager). That’s pretty standard operating procedure among all survey sites, but GetPaidToTry’s are longer than average. Most times, it felt like I was already answering the survey itself.
Oh, and take note, pre-qualifying surveys don’t provide any earnings. If you don’t qualify for the survey proper, you get nothing.
The site does have a referral program, though. You will earn around $0.30 when your referral completes their first survey. And that’s about it. On some sites, you can earn from your referral’s own referrals - sometimes as much as three levels down. But here, all you’re getting is thirty cents.
Another thing I didn’t like about this site is the fact that there’s a limit of ten referrals. I sometimes go all-in on getting referrals, but I don’t have the incentive to do that on GetPaidToTry.
While not an earning method per se, you can try your luck with their daily, weekly, and monthly sweepstakes. You could win $100, $250, and $1,000, respectively, but the sweepstakes are for the US and some Canadian states only.
If you win, your prize will be sent within 30 days of winning.
My Hot Take: The surveys are decent, but the long pre-qualifying questionnaires kind of ruin things for me. The referral program is also pretty lackluster.
Earning Potential on GetPaidToTry
You won’t become a zillionaire on GetPaidToTry, but don’t count that against them (or any other survey sites, for that matter). Answering surveys aren’t supposed to make you rich. But it’s good for earning some extra pocket money.
On average, surveys on this site pay between $0.50 and $2. On a good hour, I was able to make $3, but my earnings fluctuated wildly.
My Hot Take: $3 in an hour is not bad, but I doubt anyone would be able to keep earning $3 an hour for an entire day. Like I said, earnings will be good for pocket money, but not for paying the rent or getting that fancy vacation.
Payout Options of GetPaidToTry
When you’ve accumulated a minimum of $10, you can redeem via your earnings as cash via Payoneer, or as an Amazon Gift Card
My Hot Take: Pretty disappointing that they don’t offer PayPal since I’m willing to bet that’s the preferred payment method of most people.
How to Join GetPaidToTry
Memberships are open to anyone in the world ages 14 and up. Membership is free, and the registration page is built into the homepage. I’m adding the link below. Ka-Chow:
After you register, you will have to complete a 5-minute questionnaire to tell the site which demographic you belong to. Then after that, you have a bunch more profiles to complete… a lot of them. They are:
- Personal Profile
- Purchase Profile
- Auto Profile
- Technology Profile
- Travel & Leisure Profile
- Basic Profile
- Employment Profile
- Cell Phone Profile
- Health & Wellness Profile
- Gamer Profile
The Verdict: Legit or Scam?
GetPaidToTry is legit, but the overall experience using it is pretty lackluster. The rewards are okay, but you need to complete a mountain of profiles and pre-qualifying questions just to start earning. An easy pass for me.
