Ranked #1 on www.getpaidsurveys.com’s list of its Top 24 paid survey websites with a rating of 4.3 stars out of 5 based on a total of 83 user reviews. MySurvey has been around for a very long time. It is arguably one of the web’s oldest paid survey websites and has been continuously operated online since 2001.
Almost all of the surveys found on MySurvey are its own and not linked to any other partner paid survey panels. As a consequence, the surveys tend to be much better designed and laid out. A number of users have reported the panel’s surveys to be well-written and professional in tone. One user mentions how My Survey’s surveys have “not too many questions with too many answers required on too many products or redundancy.”
My Survey’s product tests provide higher rewards than its normal surveys. Another unique feature not found on other panels is My Survey’s “online usage diaries” which records the frequency and quantity of usage for select products and services. If a member does not qualify for a survey, they are informed of it rather quickly.
Points are usually awarded immediately after the completion of a survey. Survey payment varies from $.50 to $1.25 per survey. My Survey’s small surveys usually contain 30-50 points and last for 10-20 minutes. My Survey’s larger surveys of 150-300 points take more time to complete (30-45 minutes) but accordingly provide higher rewards.
The more experience you accumulate on MySurvey, the greater your chances of receiving frequent survey invitations via email as well as other invites for product tests and usage diaries.

He also mentions that to effectively credit points to members, 3 things must occur: “We must wait for the survey to reach the number of responses ordered; the client must confirm certain information to us; and the quality control process (verifying the answers) must be completed. This validation process can take between 1 and several weeks.”
