Edited to add – 9th September 2014:
Just a little update on this program to confirm that they do pay. We know sometimes people are a little dubious – just as we are sometimes!
We’ve found that the more you stay proactive on the site, points build quickly. We like to take a lot of the surveys, and there is always a good handful on site everyday. In other words you do not have to spend money via shopping to earn on this site, but of course you can if you want.
As a little confirmation, here is a screenshot of some of our recent payments/gift cards – obviously some months we are more active than others, but if you do stay active you can earn pretty regularly. If you are from the UK as you can see you can get Amazon UK vouchers, US residents can get them in Amazon US format plus of course you can opt for cold hard cash via Paypal!!
