Product: Paid Surveys At Home
Overall Ranking: 10 out of 100 or 0.5/5 stars
Price: $68 – comes down to $34 then $17 then $7 when you click to leave
Owner: Perhaps Patricia Johnson?
This is a survey site that has been around for about 10 years and is one of the many sites that leads people to believe they can make a living from taking surveys.
The site is meant to be owned by Patricia Johnson. However, I am suspicious about the owner when there is no “about us” page, to me, this is a red flag.
Paid Surveys At Home (PSAH) give the impression you can earn $20 in 20 minutes. In my review, we will see if this is really based on fact or complete fiction.
What is Paid Surveys At Home?
This is another site that provides a list of online survey companies where you can get paid to complete surveys both online and by telephone, participate in focus groups, try new products and even preview new movie trailers.
Basically, PSAH just provides a database of survey sites and you pay to access this list. You can consider it as an intermediary between you and the survey sites.
Who is this for?
This could be for you if you think taking surveys could be a good way of earning some money online. However, before you sign up you should know:
- You don’t have to pay to take surveys
- Surveys often take a long time to complete (say 30 minutes), for a small reward (say $1.50) The $20 surveys that take 20 minutes don’t exist.
- Often you will start a survey, but you won’t finish because you are not the demographic they are looking for. This means you will have wasted your time.
- Survey sites often have a minimum payout threshold, so you will have to complete several surveys with the same company before you will be paid.
These are some of the problems with online surveys. If you are still interested, find some companies with the search engines or other free directories. Above all, don’t pay to join the survey sites.

How does it work?
Paid Surveys At Home have a database of market research companies and before you can start taking surveys you have to register with as many companies as you like. You are recommended to register with 15 to 20 before getting started.
I didn’t bother to register with any of the companies, because normally I get disqualified from most surveys before the end, meaning for me it’s usually a complete waste of time. This is an inherent problem with surveys, you spend maybe 15 minutes answering questions only to be told “sorry you don’t qualify for this survey”
You can find survey sites yourself for free if you search just a little online. Don’t be fooled by the promise of surveys from $5 – $75, this doesn’t exist, the reality is something like 20 cents – $1.50.
PSAHome provides a calculator to enable you to calculate your probable earnings. In the image below, you can see I think I will complete 2 surveys per day for a reward of $1 per survey. This I think is realistic, conversely, PSAH includes rewards of up to $45. I have never seen surveys for this sort of pay.
This survey site also has an affiliate program and they claim to have paid out more than $2.5 million. If you feel that PSAH is a legitimate opportunity you could promote this program like many others are doing. It’s probably possible to earn more from being an affiliate than by taking surveys.
Personally, I won’t promote this program as I don’t believe that taking surveys is a good way to earn money online, and above all, you shouldn’t have to pay to join a program that provides information that can be found for free online.

Tools and training
Upsells and “bonuses”
After joining, there is one upsell for other work at home opportunities, but when you don’t buy the price is reduced from $64 to $28 and finally to $14.
Why do they try to sell you this upsell? If their product can earn you thousands of dollars per month, you won’t need to look for any other work from home. The truth is, and of course, Paid Surveys At Home know the truth, you will not earn much from taking surveys, there aren’t enough of them and they pay very little.
There are also a couple of bonuses that are included:
- A free website worth $1995! This sounds too good to be true and of course, it is. You seem to be offered this every time you log in, very annoying! On the page with the offer, they say the companies involved are Brain Host and My Creative Site Designs. This information seems to be outdated.
The actual companies involved are Digital Ink and Site Hosting Source who are both included in my Creating Income System review. You get a free generic site, but you pay an inflated price for the hosting. Don’t be tempted to sign up for a free site, this is a hosting scam.
- You are also offered some ebooks with details of other work from home opportunities. There might be one or two pieces of good information in these freebies, although not enough to start your own business. For that, you need a training program that teaches you step by step.
Beware of emails
When you register with PSAH you will start receiving emails that are supposedly meant to help you earn money online.
The truth is these emails often promote scams and will help no one except the owners of PSAH, who will earn an affiliate commission and the program that is being promoted.
The email on the right promotes a binary options program, 30 Day Change, which, if you check, is a known scam.
I think this, more than anything, shows what sort of company this is. PSAH pretend to want to help you, but only really care about making money themselves.
Help and Support
There is some help provided in the form of a limited FAQ, a knowledge base or otherwise, you will have to submit a ticket and wait for your reply.
How much does it cost?
The advertised price is $68 with three downsells bringing the price down to just $7. They would rather have a few dollars than nothing at all. As the program is already online, every dollar they take is profit. Moreover, downsells like this are often a sign that a program has little value and is also a tactic often associated with online scams.
PSAH is a Clickbank product which means there is a 60-day money-back guarantee.
My final opinion
If you are looking for a way to make a living online, it will be hard to earn much with Paid Surveys At Home.
- You will pay to get a list of survey sites. You can join the same sites for free with a little searching on Google or you can find free directories with a list of survey sites similar to the database within PSAH.
- You will find many reviews recommending this site, however, these are probably affiliates of Paid Surveys At Home. They get paid when you join using their affiliate link.
- Your personal information will be shared with third-party businesses, who will email you or even telephone you.
- You will spend hours earning just a few dollars, there are better ways of earning money online.
Taking surveys isn’t a good way to earn money online, you will be offered just a few surveys each month from each company you sign up with. Furthermore, you will be disqualified from many of these surveys before you have finished.
You will never be able to earn enough money to live from taking surveys, just a little extra cash. Accordingly, if you want to earn $20 -$40 per month for many hours of your time, sign up for some of the free survey sites. If you want to earn some significant money, there are some far better ways of earning a living online.
Verdict: Not Recommended
Making money online from home isn’t as simple as just answering a few questions for a survey. No, you have to learn how to build your business in the correct way, you have to put in a lot of effort writing content and researching products. I am sure you can be successful, you just need to be determined and work hard with the guidance of an educational program that will teach and support you.
If you want to put all the chances on your side, the best internet marketing program I have found is Wealthy Affiliate. It’s where I learned everything I know about affiliate marketing, WordPress, and building a website.
So, if you are serious about making money online, take a look at my Wealthy Affiliate review and if it looks interesting you could try the FREE trial.
