Clear Voice Surveys is a paid feedback survey site that has existed since 2006, so it has been around for a while. Even though the name reveals that it is mostly a paid survey site, it also offers other ways to earn.
I have already revealed that the options are not that great, in my thoughts. But before getting to the main reasons for this, let’s first go over the details about what the site has to offer, so you will be able to see how that fits you and judge for yourself.
What Is Clear Voice Surveys?
Clear Voice Surveys having the website named clearvoicesurveys.com, refers to an online customer feedback survey panel that is owned by the Clear Voice Research, LLC which is based in Denver, Colorado.
As is with any online feedback survey of repute, becoming a member is free.
After registering, users automatically enter into a sweepstake competition which qualifies them to earn compensation that can be anywhere between $1 and $20. If you started a customer feedback survey that you didn’t qualify for, you can expect to be rewarded 10 cents.
How the Survey Works
Once you register on the site and give some information about yourself to help Clear Voice Surveys give you feedback surveys, you’ll be able to start taking surveys. Customer surveys range in payout from $1 up to $20, but you’re unlikely to find anything other than surveys that pay $1 or less during your entire time on the site.
It should be noted that the profile information that you need to fill out on the Clear Voice Feedback Surveys website is very extensive. This means that you need to take quite a long time to fill out, and this time isn’t paid. That means that unless the information helps to get you more customer surveys, you are, in a way, wasting your time.
You can also make money on this site by doing offers or referring friends. To do rewards, you typically have to sign up for a trial. These trials cost $1, and then they pay out $5. If you forget to cancel the trials though, you could end up spending money instead of making money online, so if you choose to do rewards, make sure that you are very careful about that.
How to Earn a Reward?
You will be paid for taking part in a survey, and the pay ranges from $1 to $20.
But don’t go there expecting to get $20. In most cases, you will just be getting those $1 surveys.
This is not much and some people have considered it a time-wasting.
Another way to make money with Clear Voice Feedback Surveys is by entering in sweepstakes. With every survey that you take, you enter sweepstakes and stand a chance to win up to $1000 in cash prizes.
However, unlike other online customer surveys, Clear Voice does not give you any extra reward for referring others to join it.
For you to earn the money, you need to accumulate at least $10 in your account, which is a good thing.
The problem though is that payment options are limited to only Amazon gift certificates, Dining Dough gift certificates, Payoneer, and MasterCard.
This is sure to rile many members because it is fairly limited in payment alternatives compared to the payment options of other market research firms.
Although I have seen some claims to the impact that they offer other payment options, a visit to their website indicates that you have to do with only one of the options above.
I also need to mention that I checked for Dining Dough options in several areas and in most cases, the gift certificates were only for a fraction of the individual bill of the restaurant.
- You get paid even if you don’t qualify. $0.10 is not much, but it adds up. Most websites won’t pay you anything unless you complete the survey.
- Low redemption threshold. Some websites don’t have a threshold at all, but many have a high threshold. $10 is reasonably low.
- Support phone line. Well, this is pretty unique. While I didn’t try it, if it works it is great to have direct contact with the customer support.
- Rare opportunities. This is a major downer. With very few opportunities, it can take forever to accumulate money to cash out.
- Hard to qualify. Many members complained about high disqualifying rates and late disqualifications. While there are many unbiased reasons that can lead to this, it shouldn’t happen very often.
- Long reward pending time. Usually, it takes 2 to 8 weeks after finishing to credit your balance. However, sometimes it takes 2 to 3 months, which makes it hard to keep track of your earnings and current balance.
- Rewards expire after a year. If you don’t accumulate $10 to cash out, you will lose your money after a year. I find this very unfair considering a limited number of available surveys.
- Low user ratings. I put this at the end while it is probably the most important issue. The number of unsatisfied users is pretty high. I came across several users who had been members for years and all of them had the same story: fewer opportunities, and more frequent disqualifications as time goes by.
Clear Voice Surveys appears better than most others since it pays you even if you take a feedback survey for which you do not necessarily qualify. The problem is that the money is just too little.
10 cents for unqualified feedback surveys and a monthly income of $10 at best is not what you want. In short, these customer surveys don’t compensate you enough for the time that you spend signing up for the different surveys.
