What’s happening, guys? The weekend’s coming up, and it’s gonna be a great time to try out a few survey sites. If you’re looking for a new one to test, check out my review for SendEarnings. I’ll be discussing whether they’re worth your time or not.
While I’m new to survey sites, I get the impression SendEarnings is one of the 500-pound gorillas in the scene. I mean, just look at their total payout through the years: over $50 million dollars. SendEarnings is also a bit of a media darling - they’ve been covered by major network shows such as ABC News, Good Morning America, and Today. As if that weren’t enough to show how huge SendEarnings is, they are owned and operated by InboxDollars, another major player in the industry.
Everything about this site exudes bigness and professionalism. At first glance, SendEarnings looks like the survey site equivalent of a shiny Cadillac Escalade. But does this boss-level image apply to the overall experience of using (and earning through) the site?
Let’s have a look under the hood of this behemoth of a survey site.
How Do You Earn on SendEarnings?
There are a whopping eight ways for you to earn on SendEarnings. They are:
Complete Surveys - SendEarnings partners with pretty major research organizations who need information on various topics. SendEarnings provides those surveys to members and pays in cash.
Play Games - Play games and earn - it’s that simple. You can also earn by competing with other members.
Use Coupons - Print and use coupons for major household brands - and earn cash just by using them!
Watch Videos - Earn cash just for watching videos on a wide range of topics!
Use Cashback Offers - Earn your cash back whenever you shop in specific shops. To make things more awesome, you can even get discounts and free samples.
Read Emails - “PaidEmails” (Yep, that’s what they’re called) are sent to your inbox. These emails contain info on various offers, but you also get paid just for opening these emails.
Get a Bonus for Signing Up - You can also earn a $5 bonus just by signing up!
Refer New Members - You will make $5 from each of your referrals after they get their first payout. After that you will make 10% of their regular earnings.
That’s a large number of ways to earn. What’s special about SendEarnings is the number of methods it has. You can take surveys one minute, then watch videos later, and then start playing games afterwards. It’s a great, dynamic online experience.
Earnings, as always, depends on the actual amount of time you spend doing these tasks. The more tasks you do and the more time you put in, the more you’ll earn, of course. But here’s a basic breakdown of some of their two most popular earning methods:
Surveys - Most surveys pay on average $.050 to $1 depending on the length of the survey. The site will tell you how much each survey will pay, so you have the option to take it or move on to a higher-paying one. After you complete the survey, the corresponding cash reward will be immediately credited to your account.
Emails - You will get up to three “PaidEmails” per day. Each one has a “Confirm Paid Email” button that you will have to click. When you do, you earn two cents. Most emails will contain info on discounts and offers you could also earn from. So make sure you actually read through them.
SendEarning has a $30 minimum withdrawal amount, which is crazy high. It’ll honestly take you a while before you hit that amount. They pay via cheque, prepaid VISA card, or through the proprietary SendEarnings gift card.
What I Don’t Like About SendEarnings
Okay, in this part of the review, I usually list down The Good and The Bad. But this time I’ll just jump straight the the bad. That isn’t because SendEarnings is a sucky company. I’m doing this because most of what I’ve written above are already pretty positive. So I’ll try to balance things out by writing what I didn’t like about SendEarnings. And they are:
Getting Screened Out of Surveys - Hello, my old enemy. It seems like getting screened out while you take a survey also happens on big sites such as SendEarnings. At this point, I’ve accepted that this is pretty much industry practice. But I will never stop ranting against this practice.
Crazy High Minimum Withdrawal - The tasks on this site pay only a couple of cents each - some even less. It’ll take you a long, long time for you to hit the $30 minimum cashout.
Not Enough Surveys - If all you want to do is take surveys, get ready for some idle time. It can get frustrating having to wait for surveys to take. Oh, well. At least there are many more methods for us to earn on SeanEarnings.
The Verdict: Legit or Scam?
SendEarnings is legit! But with that said, they’re not the best. SendEarnings is less King Kong and more sleepy puppy. They don’t always have surveys to take, and that high minimum can be a major hindrance. I suggest adding this site to your list of backup sites; it’s not quite ready for main rotation.
