Everybody who reads my posts probably knows that I love a good survey! Particularly ones that are well paid. Today I want to talk to you about Populuslive surveys. The surveys from Populuslive have a minimum payment of £1. Typically surveys are £2-3 although I’ve had a few £5 ones in the past too.
With PopulusLive the cash out redemptions are processed automatically, on the 1st of each month. This means that if you have reached the required £50 in May your cheque, for £50, will be sent in June, usually around the 10th-15th of the month. Any £s that you have accrued over £50 will be kept back towards your next payment. This usually means for me that by the time a cheque arrives, around the 10th, I’m already well on the way to my next payout.
I personally cash out £50 3-4 times a year, which isn’t a bad amount of money. I find the surveys are really fast – although they do put test questions in them.
The surveys are incredibly straight forward. Typically I have to answer some questions, such as age, sex and employment status as well as answering some quality control questions. These consist of asking you about an item that you own or use, and then there is another question towards the end of the survey that will basically check that you have provided genuine answers, as long as you tell the truth in your surveys you won’t have any problems with these. It appears, from looking at the FAQ section of the website, that there are also quality control measures in place with regards to how long it takes you to complete a survey, but I’ve never had a problem with either of these measures. I complete surveys fast and I’ve never been disqualified. Presumably this is because I’m accurate with my answers, read the questions and generally just pay attention properly.
How much do Populuslive Surveys pay?
The value of each survey is dependent on the time that it is expected it will take you to complete it. Each 5 minutes pays £1 and I must say that they are very accurate with their costings. Usually a £1 survey will take me just a few minutes. I do take my time, just to ensure that I don’t miss any quality control questions. I have had surveys worth £5 or more in the past, that have taken much less than 25 minutes.
How long do takes cheque with Populuslive?
The cheques arrive within 2 weeks. I’ve never had a cheque not arrive, turn up unsigned or fail to clear. This is another ‘slow burner’ for me but it is a favourite one of mine. If I have a full inbox and I spot any PopulusLive surveys I will always check them out first. I like the layout of their surveys and the topics. I’m not even bothering answering the same demographic questions each survey. I know their surveys won’t be long or dull. You can join Populuslive here.
