Several months ago, I was on a big survey app kick. I downloaded a handful of apps that claim to pay you for taking surveys on your phone and tried them all to find out which ones were the best.
One of those apps was Surveys on the Go which, according to their website, is “consistently the highest rated, most reviewed survey application on the market.”
Continue reading this Surveys on the Go review to learn more about how it works and to find out if this mobile survey app is really worth using.
What is Surveys on the Go?
Surveys on the Go is an app that pays you to take surveys on your phone or tablet. The surveys are typically about your opinion of different types of products in order to facilitate market research. You can also turn on location services to get surveys based on places you’ve been.
Surveys on the Go is available for both iPhone and Android for users in the United States.
How Does Surveys on the Go Work?
Once you download the app and sign up, there are a few demographic surveys you can do for $0.50 each. These demographic surveys will help Surveys on the Go target you for future surveys.
To get location targeted surveys, make sure location services are enabled for the app.
When new surveys are available, the app will send you a push notification. It doesn’t seem to notify you all the time though, so you might want to open the app and check every so often.
Some surveys may not credit right away. This usually happens if your submission needs to be reviewed for quality which can take 3-5 days. If your responses do not pass the quality inspection, they can be rejected.
What are the Surveys on the Go codes? The app says that “Codes are issued when specific audiences are invited to participate in surveys.” Other than that bit of information, I can’t find much else about the codes. If you have received a Surveys on the Go code, let me know how it worked!
Surveys on the Go Payout
The minimum payout for Surveys on the Go is $10.00.
Once your balance reaches $10.00 and above, you can cash out to Paypal.
On the Surveys on the Go website it says that payments to a verified Paypal account will be instant.
Surveys on the Go Review
Is Surveys on the Go Worth it? No
I don’t usually review things until I have cashed out at least once. But, with Surveys on the Go, I don’t feel like I will ever make it to the minimum payout. The screenshot on the right is all I ever see. Every now and then, a survey will appear, then disqualify me 5 minutes into the survey. It is pretty frustrating.
I have had the Surveys on the Go app installed for around 5 months now, and my balance is $3.80. I did read some reviews on the App Store of people getting high paying surveys on this app. But, there are also a lot of reviews with the same problem I have had with not getting any surveys.
If I could reach the minimum payout in my lifetime, that would be great. Because I really like that this app pays in Paypal and the payments are supposedly instant. It would be better if the minimum payout was much lower considering how long it takes. I’ll update this review for the Payout time if I do happen to get there.
From my experience so far, I would not recommend the Surveys on the Go app as a good way to make extra money. There are other survey apps that are worth the time and have more surveys available.
