SurveyJ claims to be the “#1 survey earning network to help you make money.”  The company’s website states that they have more than 250,000 users, paying out more than $7 million since opening its doors.  Best of all, they are willing to offer you a $40 signup bonus, one of the biggest I have ever seen.  It seems like they do a lot to entice you to get to sign up, however, as you’re about to find out, you’re not going to make anything with the site, unfortunately.

Whether you have heard the name SurveyJ and want to know more about it or you just want to know what’s out there, I wanted to show you what SurveyJ is all about.

As in all of my reviews, I’m always 100% honest, only telling you how it is.

Let’s begin.

What is SurveyJ?

SurveyJ, at first, seems like the many GPT-like sites out there that reward you to complete a variety of tasks, such as taking surveys, posting on social media as well as completing offers.  There are many legitimate sites out there that pay you, but some, such as this one, can give the industry a bad name.

The website seems legit when you first look at it, however, as you dig deeper, you soon find out it’s not what you think it is.

Let me explain.

Making Money With SurveyJ (many red flags)

When you create an account, which only requires a user name and password, you can immediately access a dashboard that will look something like this:

They give you the $40 sign-up bonuses as promised, which is “credited” to your account but don’t get too excited just yet.

As you can see on the sidebar, you can earn money in a variety of ways, such as referring friends, uploading to social media, taking surveys, as well as completing offers.  It seems like the most standard stuff you see on GPT-like sites.

So, let’s say you want to take surveys via the “$80 survey wall.”

If you were to click on that, you could complete easy surveys and earn $80 PER SURVEY.  That’s absurd, as the most I have ever seen a survey pay is maybe $20 at most. Most surveys only pay $0.50 to $1, on average, usually.

If I were to click on the survey (not worth it), you could fill it out, and have $80 added to your account.  Keep in mind that these are sleazy spammy survey offers and not your traditional survey opportunities.  If you were to finish, you’re going to make them money, not you.

Aside from the surveys, you can also earn more than $20 to $100 by posting certain things to your social media accounts, such as YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram, etc.  They hope you will spread the word of their sham in hopes many people jump on board temporarily and try to fill out surveys to help make them money.

And, lastly, you can earn $2 every time someone clicks on your referral link, that’s it.  That’s another thing I never heard of.  Sure, there are referral links, but oftentimes, your referrals have to complete surveys, offers, etc for you to get paid.  It’s never a click on this link and get paid.  It doesn’t exist.

There were other ways to make money, such as completing offers for $100 and giveaways, but since it’s all a scam, I don’t want to go too much into detail since it DOESN’T WORK.

Again, the site looks legit, but deep down, once you get the hang as to how it works, they simply don’t pay.

Rewards and Cashing Out

To cash out, they have an odd system I haven’t seen elsewhere.

You need to complete a certain amount of tasks for your first cash out.  This means you have to complete a certain percentage of clicks, invites, surveys as well as referral commission.  They don’t tell you how much this is, so your guess is as good as mine.

On this page, it states you need at least $120 to start the withdrawal process, but as I have mentioned a few times, you won’t get paid.


There are a TON of reviews online stating so.

TrustPilot had similar reviews, too.

What People Are Saying

The problem with is that there aren’t a lot of blogs/YouTube channels talking about it honestly. Instead, you’re going to find a lot of people posting those fake reviews for rewards they don’t get.

Here were some reviews I found on a blog I found online…

These were very common complaints.

They will lure you into completing as many offers as you can, only to say you will get paid in the “future,” which never comes.  Even when the payout day comes, you won’t see the cash.

Final Thoughts

0/10In the end, SurveyJ is a big sham.  They try to lure you in with huge payouts and instant credits in your account, all in hopes you refer this website to friends.  Then, they hope they continue to do the same.  As you refer people, they will complete the surveys and offers, making them money, all while you’re giving them your time for nothing.  They make money and you get screwed over.  These are the sites that give the internet a bad name.

If you see this name, avoid it.  They don’t pay, you will get scammed and it’s not what it seems, no matter how professional it looks.  Simply put, STAY AWAY.

That’s going to do it for now.
