If you mean NPDOR, it is very legitimate and good. There screeners do typically enter you in a drawing but I won $100 from them for trying.

Thnks

That is NPDOR and they are very good. I DID pay for a list and it turned out to be a bunch of junk sites (offer sites, email harvesting sites, etc) I was pretty upset. I did get my money back and I went through the list and made my own list that is free and only includes the REAL survey sites, no PTR's or offers sites. You are welcome to use the list, my website is in my signature and profile and we also have a message board where we keep each other updated on which surveys are paying etc. You won't make a living but after a few months most people who take them like they should make a few hundred a month. I put all mine away for Christmas or a special night out.

I guess I should have also explained that you need to sign up with all the legitimate survey companies or at least the top 30-40 on my list. If you ONLY sign up with NPDOR you will only be getting 1-2 surveys a month and that won't get you very far :)

NPDOR is good and their surveys are quite easy
They however reward only by sweepstakes - but there are lot of winners every month

This is a big misconception.. Their screeners often lead to paid studies.. you can't find this out without taking the screener though!

Katie, if you work at home? How do you have time to answer so many questions on this forum? You constantly post an answer?

Re: NPD Online Research- is this real???? please h

In my experience, it's a waste of time. I was not ever able to log-in to a survey. After many emails to the company I never got a useful response. It didn't look like you could make a significant amount of money anyway. The worst thing was that I was buried in spam after signing up and of course most of them have no unsubscribe link.

Re: NPD Online Research- is this real???? please h

What I did was aign up to 5-7 survey sites. Which givesme about 3-7 survyes a day to take. Probably for me with the amount of time I have the seet spot about be to sing up to 10 survey sites. That would give me enough to stay busy but not too busy. At that pace I could get enough surveys from all the sites to save up about 500 in 4 or 5 months then take that money and buy a big ticket item that is basically for free. I am going to do that. SincE I am in the marktet for a LCD TV I am saving up to buy one from amazon since most survey sites that dont do cash will do amazon gift certs. After the LCD not sure what I am going to save for.

If you were getting spam, you were signed up to the offer sites and not the real survey sites. Makes a big difference.

NO NPD Research is far from a scam! They are not a survery company that pays you a buck to do a survey either. NPD Research is a market research company that uses the data from the surveys they produce to inform large companies what the consumers are thinking. This can effect the way products are made or how they look. When you take their surveys NPD Research does give you points that can be used to enter and win contests so you do get something out of it other then telling companies how to change their products.

I completed a survey a few days ago and was waiting for more to come, but nothing has come. When I try to log on to the website, I can't get through. Have I been scammed?

Why would anyone think that something you do not ever have to pay for would be a scam???

Nope you haven't been scammed. Survey sites do not send surveys everyday. Some don't even send them every month. This is why you need to join all the legit survey sites. It will keep a steady flow of opportunities coming in.
