Paid online surveys

This is my experiance (so far) and review of the paid survey racket.So here it is,...You pay 35 bucks thinking they have all the companys you need to make the money they promise but they dont.They may say they have 500+ or more companies but they dont tell you that more then 50% of them pay you in sweepstakes entries that you'll never win.A lot of them arnt available in your counrty,A lot of them are links to pay sites wanting money to join thier survey racket.They actually have very few companies that pay cash for surveys,its mostly prizes.I paid 35 bucks at survey scout and only got about 10 companies that pay cash and its on a point system that you redeem for money.10 points per survey and I've only gotton 2 surveys in one week.You can redeem them at 1000 points and that totals up to 50 bucks.How long is that gonna take,geeze.So I started thinking if each survey membership is good for 10 or so survey companies I'll sign up for three memberships at different sites,get about 30 companies and maby if i'm lucky make a 100 bucks a week.So I did.The next site, had even less companies then survey scout and the third was a rip off and had no paid survey companies at all,just links to other pay sites(express survey.com).I'm currently registerd with 10 companies and have only recieved 2 surveys in a week,so before I sign up at another site I'm going to wait and see what happens with the ones I got.
