Take Surveys for Cash Review

Name: Take Surveys for Cash

Owners: Jason White

Price: $37 which is reduced to $12

Take Surveys for Cash is a survey site that charges it’s members. I’ve never really heard of a survey site doing this. What makes this product so good that it has to charge? This Take Surveys for Cash review will answer that question! Read on!

Program Overview

Take Surveys for Cash is a really popular Clickbank product, but for the life of me, I can’t figure out why. I understand the appeal of survey sites. It’s easy work that can get you a couple extra bucks per survey. So for those people that are just looking for a few extra dollars a month, survey sites are great!

The surveys themselves are easy and self-explanatory, but most people don’t realize how time consuming they can actually be. Before you can even take a paid survey you will have to qualify for it.

How do you qualify for a survey?

You qualify for a survey by… taking a survey! That’s right! There is usually a qualifying survey in place that takes as much time to complete as the actual survey. You will not qualify for every survey, which means you will be wasting time TRYING to qualify.

Take Surveys for Cash claims that you can make $3,500 a month from surveys alone. This is simply not true. You will never make that much money taking surveys. Especially given the fact that they’re not always available (there is a whole lot of competition out there).

How is Take Surveys for Cash Different from other Survey Sites?

The short answer: THE PRICE. Take Surveys for Cash is exactly like the other survey sites. It is simply a gateway site that will point you to REAL survey sites. The survey sites it points you towards are completely free to use.

So why does Take Surveys for Cash charge $37?

Because it is a scam. Think about it. You would be paying for information that is available to you for FREE. This is absolutely despicable.

If you elect to pass on paying $37 and attempt to exit from the window, you will be greeted by this message:

Take Surveys for Cash Exit Message

This reeks of desperation.

After this pop-up hits the scene, the price is reduced from $37 to $12. That is still $12 too much, because all of this information can be found for free.

The fact that there is a price reduction when you try to exit should tell you that the program is a scam. They know they aren’t worth what they are trying to charge you. Don’t give them any of your money!

What Does $37 Buy You?

A Peek Inside the Member's Area

A peek inside the member’s area.

Allow me to elaborate on these 6 steps:

Step 1 – Simply an introduction to the system.

Step 2 – This is an upsell for a binary options program called Verified Traders. You’ll have to give a big ol’ chunk of change for this. I’m sure Jason White will get that money! You should avoid upsells in general. They usually indicate a scam.

Step 3 – This one is completely self-explanatory. You take surveys and you get some money.

Step 4 – They suggest you register with as many survey companies as possible. Well, duh! They do suggest you get a program that will automatically fill-in your registration information.

Step 5 – This is just a list of the surveys that are available for your area. Again, all of these surveys can be found in other places for FREE.

Step 6 – A couple of ebooks that will teach you other ways to make money online. Now I like this idea. It would justify paying for the program. Unfortunately, a lot of the information here is outdated. Plus, if you are new to making money online, you won’t be able to utilize this information correctly.

The Final Word…


Take Surveys for Cash is a blatant scam. They charge you for things that you can find for free elsewhere. There are plenty of free survey sites that will provide you with the same exact surveys, so don’t waste your time with this one.

Speaking of wasting time…

For me, survey sites are a complete waste of time. They only result in pocket change. If all you’re looking for is a little bit of extra money on the side (and I do mean a little bit…), than taking surveys is an acceptable way of going about this.

However, if you are looking for a real full-time income stream, I recommend looking into affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is the easiest way to earn money online for beginners. You could dedicate the same amount of time, that it takes to complete surveys, to building a website (your own online business). Check out my #1 recommendation for an affiliate marketing education.

I am the owner of Pajamas and Tie. After years of being scammed, I've taken it upon myself to expose these schemes and let the legitimate programs shine through. You can find me on my site or hanging out over at Wealthy Affiliate.

  2. i am a member of this takesurveysforcash, more than a month that i had deposited money in to their account i never see any message or alert from them. I believed is a scammer.

    • You’re right Alaba. You should try contacting support to get a refund. If that fails, try contacting your bank. Never pay for a survey site in the future. You should never pay for the right to work.

  3. Im from philippines, and as of now Im still looking for a new job.. while waiting I want to earn extra income also. Can you please recommend some legitimate online money earn? Your response is very helpful for me.. and I relly appreciate it. Thank you so much.

    • Hello Mylene,

      Are you seeking a solid income stream, or just extra spending money? If you want to build your own online business, which can result in more than a full-time income, you should look into affiliate marketing. There are many different programs that can teach you all about affiliate marketing, but my #1 recommendation is Wealthy Affiliate.

      If you just want a little extra spending money, check out my review of Swagbucks. Really any of the programs in the trusted tab can make you money, but some of them you have to take with a grain of salt.

      I hope this helps! Good luck to you!


  4. Unfortunately I just paid to join Take Surveys For Cash and it seems like I am screwed. Gosshhhh what a big mistake I made. Never received any reaction for login details. Does anyone know maybe an e-mail address of them? I need to hand over correspondences by e-mail to my Credit Card company to get a possibility that they return the amount which I paid to join.
    Would be great if someone could help me. Thanks in advance.

  5. Thankyou so much for all the information. I am about to make the biggest mistake ever, Tomorrow they will be calling me for my credit card on survey for cash, i did a registration that i paid 27.00 and then i after i register then they told me to invest for $250.00 which i am so confused now.. i don’t know if i am suppose to pay or just leave it and find another website for free in which i can get for free.. without paying for anything. They call me like everyday to get my cc details. please advice

  6. l just subscribed to TakesurveysforCash last saturday and l paid with my credit card. l copied the bill and it cost me $60.31 canadian and l check the site and l thought it was for Canadian citizen only, but l saw it’s good around the world. l check the surveys sites and l recognized any l already participated, but l had won only $20.00 in a year. Then l tried to subscribed to others, but some of them were closed or others didn’t accept my candidature. They said l can have a refund in 60 days, l will try to have a refund because ldon’t want they take money on my credit card, because l will over $3000 dollars full of debts. Then l concluded that’s a scam and better get out of there…

    • Hello Jill,

      As long as you request a refund before the 60 days are up, you should have no problems. If problems do persist, contact your credit card company and request that they cease payment. Don’t give up on making money online! There may be a lot of scams, but if you’re patient, you can find the gems buried in the haystack.

      Good luck to you,


  7. Take surveys for cash by Jason White is really a scam no one should believe this this ,i was not knowing that there is a review about this ,otherwise i would have not joined . I waisted $27 , Once you join ,it refers about different companies which ask our complete details ,they will say that $5 is your reward when it reaches $20 than only you can redeem . Nether is any reward nor any money back it is totally SCAM .

    • Thank you for the feedback Sophia. Sorry to hear that you lost money. Take this as a lesson learned. Good luck to you in the future!


  8. Oh Gosh! Thanks Derek! It’s my instinct to review first before paying. Thanks goodness that you wrote a blog about this and it saves me so much!!! May the blessings of God be with you always derek!


  9. Hi Derek
    Great Post, really informative, cant believe Clickbank let people get ripped off like this, would like to see your review on them?
    I note your #1 recommendation to own/run an online business is Wealthy Affiliate – I’ve seen this in a lot of review sites in the past six months, Can I ask what other then teaching subscribers to create review sites does Wealthy Affiliate offer, obviously your site is of excellent production but I cant see it making a mint?
    Sorry to ask direct, its just before I commit to a monthly subscription or any subscription paid or free, I want to be sure I’m not just lining the pockets of a clever Guru in the cloud?

    look forward to your reply/chat

    Great stuff

    • Hello Ray,

      Wealthy Affiliate has two different training courses. One of which will teach you how to promote the program to others, and the other will teach you how to take any niche (hobby or interest of yours) and turn it into a profitable online business. You will learn proper SEO (Search Engine Optimization – Ranking content within search engines) techniques. This leads to more traffic to your website. You will then learn how to convert this traffic to paying customers. You direct these customers to products, and collect commission on any sale that you generate. This process is called Affiliate Marketing.

      Beyond this, with a premium membership at WA, you will be able to purchase your own domain name and host your website through WA themselves. Normally, you would have to purchase a domain name and pay for hosting through a third party website. With WA, it’s included in the monthly premium cost (so you save money and learn to make more).

      The most valuable thing that comes from a WA membership, is the access to the community. WA has a large community of like minded Internet marketers. They are helpful and encouraging (which goes a long way in this game). Networking is essential for growth.

      I hope this has been enlightening. Let me know if you have anymore questions.
