Is it worth it to spend 20 min for 40cents?
« on: April 01, 2017, 07:19:32 pm »
I have been on FC for a year and I actually LOVE this site.... let's say first of all that I have no referrals so all the money I make here are just from the time I spend doing surveys...

Lately though I have been having a hard time reaching the 25cashout.. got a lot of DQ etc...
And than I am asking myself... is it really worth to spend 15-20 minutes on these surveys... to only make 30-40cents at a time??

There's always a chance that the survey will actually be shorter or it'll just reroute you to another survey that's shorter and/or pays more.

That is true ;) But I am just asking myself.... struggling to reach 25dollars... how many hours does it actually take...
and per day... (unless you get those surveys thay pay 1-3 dollars).... how many hours does it take to make just a few dollars??

Keep a journal for a week of the time you spend and how much you make.  I will tell you that probably it will be discouraging because I know I spend too much time to not even get close to minimum wage.

I am retired with nowhere to go and all day to get there, so time is not even a factor for me. It gives me something to do and adds a few more bucks to enjoy my retirement, so why not? As you can see from my banner, it has mostly been a positive experience overall.

I think that you have brought up a truly valid question. I think that if fusion cash were your only source of income you would need to maximize your efforts to make a decent amount of cash and those efforts would have the recruitment of referrals as a key step. The majority of people that I see posting are using fusion cash to supplement their income. I have read posts from people that are running a few different computers with split screens and multiple point to click sites. Old Bud, at the bottom in your threads, indicates that he supplements his retirement income and points to the amount earned over several years. I visit fusion cash every day,and have for the last seven plus years, during down time between two jobs or as I am waiting for large downloads on my computer for my second job. In the previous two instances the extra pennies make sense for the people because they supplement the primary source of income.

I am between jobs and have just joined here. I have found that the majority of 20min surveys are not worth it (my opinion) I spend majority of day here and can usually make $3 at least. Thats mostly surveys and a few vids
Its about maximizing time on each chance...15mins per survey(min 30/40 per) I really don't bother w others unless I am just bored. I WILL do an OCCASIONAL 20min.

Guess it depends on the time you have to spare.  If you just watching TV and doing them like I do than it is worth it to me.  If you don't have time maybe not but remember you could be DQ and only earn a penny.  I check every survey in my account because you never know it may lead you elsewhere

I don't spend hours a day on here and I manage to cashout on multiple sites every month. I would be spending a lot of time on my computer anyway so I might as well take some surveys and earn. I tend to get a lot of product tests and that's because I don't limit what type of surveys I attempt

It depends on how much time I have to be on here. Sometimes I'm willing to put time into surveys and other times I'm not.

I am retired like Oldbuddy and have plenty of time to visit FC. Once I made up my mind to cash out each month, I have made it happen.  However, I tend to agree that 20 minutes for $.40 is discouraging, especially when I usually take more time than stated in the link. I try most of the shorter surveys, usually 1-10 minutes, but if I need the money to stay on schedule for cashing out, I will attempt the bigger paying ones.  Right now, RadioLoyalty is "unavailable" and VideoLab has disappeared, so I imagine more surveys will be in my future.

It's a little long for 40 cents, but I would probably do it.

I look at it as 40 cents being more than 0.  Either I make the 40 cents here or somewhere else but if I don't do the survey or watch the video I don't make anything.  It's not a lot but it is more than 0 and that's how you have to look at it unless your option is to do something else for even more money.

Funny you should say that because I just completed a 17 minute survey that credited $0.30 . I do it So I can qualify for the paid to click offer :)
