Surveys For Money - The Truth Wouldn't it be great if you could make a decent living from filling in surveys? No special skills needed, no investment, working from the comfort of your home. Easy money? Unfortunately, the truth is most people who try surveys and data entry jobs only make a few dollars if at all. Fact is most don't even make enough to cover for the cost of doing the surveys in the first place. Some websites charge a fee to use their database of offers, and often you need to use a credt card to fill in surveys. The reason there are so many websites offering to make money for filling in surveys is they make money on the subscription fees. THEY are the people making money – selling the idea of making money with surveys!
