TestSpin is a U.S based paid survey panel. International user's are welcome on the site, but just how good is it? As one of the longest serving survey panels online, with over 11 million user's, you would think it would be great, read this article to find out.


TestSpin is one of the oldest survey panels around, yet not that many people have heard about it. This can some times happen when a site decides, to not advertise as much, which I think is the case with this site. The company who own this website are Testspin inc, which is a company from the U.S, and based in California. TestSpin has a massive user base, and they claim to have over eleven million members. As far as the question, is it a scam? since there arrival on the net, there payment history is great, complaints about them not paying out, are none existent.

TestSpin is a free website to join, and the only thing required is that you are at least 13 years of age. So this is a good site for teenagers wanting to earn a little cash, as well as adults. Like most survey panels around, you will be expected to give some of your personal details, such as name, date of birth and your likes and interests. Also you will need a legit email to sign up, once this is done, you will start to receive surveys, directly to your email. If you are an IT or business professional, then this site could be great for you. As they have a lot of surveys, targeted for these types of people, and these surveys will pay around three to four dollars.

The rest of the surveys are aimed at the general public, people like me, and pay around one to two dollars. This is one of them sites which sends out a lot of surveys to your email. The problem is, you won't qualify for them all, so it is a little hit and miss, and some people may get hacked of starting surveys, only to be fazed out. This site reminds me a lot of Toluna, in the way that it is run. In that when you complete a survey, you will not get your earnings straight away, first the surveys you have done must be checked over, which can sometimes take up to thirty day's.

For the surveys that you take, you will be awarded TestSpin dollars, but when you wish to redeem, you must convert them into ReeditNow Points. These points can then be exchanged for gift certificates, including Amazon, or cash into your Paypal account. I must say, out of all of these types of sites around, TestSpin has the weirdest rewards system of them all, but it works.

Is it worth it? If you are an IT, business professional, then yes, this is going to be great site for you to earn some cash with. What about the rest of us? I am going to be honest, it's probably not worth it, there are much better sites around to take surveys with. This site is legit, and may even work better for people living in the U.S but for me as a U.K resident, it just wasn't worth my time.
