The common opinion of paid-to-answer survey sites, specially among Asians, is that they just collect information from us and never really pay. I agree on it to a large extent. Usually, after taking our info, we are shown a message saying we don’t qualify for the survey. In fact, on some occasions, after spending 10-15 minutes on surveys, I’ve been shown such messages! The other major problem with such sites is that we hardly receive any surveys to take. Well, there is a refreshing site that’s a lot different than many other survey site – it’s called PollBuzzer. This PollBuzzer Review is an honest experience of a year’s association with the survey site.
Profile Details, Survey Frequency and Numbers
Let me get straight to the points. According to them, my profile is just 42% complete. And I didn’t do it at once. It was a gradual process over the past one year. So, based on this I will let you judge my performance on the site. The below table gives a good snapshot of everything in the past one year.

PollBuzzer Review: Earning and Payment Proof
My first ever survey on PollBuzzer was an unsuccessful one, in that I didn’t qualify. But I tried the second one and completed it to get $1.88. This was back in November, 2014. But then I got a bit busy and didn’t bother to check the surveys that were sent to my e-mail by PollBuzzer for quite some time (about 2-3 months). Later, when I started getting qualified in at least one out of 4-5 surveys I tried, I began to trust PollBuzzer. I gradually entered more details in my profile and observed that the more I filled up my profile, the more surveys I received.
How to Redeem
I was at $11.50 when I got another survey of $2.50. So, my balance was $14 after completing it. Seeing that I once thought of just continuing without redeeming, just to avoid paying PayPal fee every time I redeem. But then I wanted to make sure PollBuzzer pays, so I decided to redeem, which turned out a good decision. Why? Well, the maximum amount we can redeem from PollBuzzer is fixed at $12.50! (See the image beside). PayPal is the only mode of payment, and they deduct a nominal fee of 2% upfront. So, the amount I was paid was $12.25.
Payment – It was Amazingly Quick!
After redeeming, I thought it would be the normal waiting time of some days before I get to hear from them. But I was wrong. As soon as I redeemed, I had the money in my PayPal. They have automated the process, I guess. I had the full $12.25 within seconds! So that was a decent amount of money for being patient for over a year! Of course the best part was that I didn’t waste my time on PollBuzzer unlike many other earning sites. The surveys in which I was disqualified took no more than a minute, and those that I qualified paid decent money ranging from $0.38 to $2.50! So, I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the site, unless you are expecting it to be the primary source of your income, which it cannot be. In fact, hardly any earning site can be your sole primary source of income. But it’s cool to have an additional source and a refreshing one as PollBuzzer – Go for it!
