Survey Savvy – Scam Or The Holy Grail Of Survey Sites?

By | November 3, 2015

Survey Savvy reviewMany people are looking for ways to make “easy” money online. In fact there are no real ways to make easy money online. You always have to invest a lot of time and it is a lot of work if you want to make real money online. I mean if it was easy, everyone would do it, right? Well a lot of people think that survey sites are the “easy and fast” way to make some money from home. Unfortunately this is not true. I reviewed a lot of survey sites and none of them was worth the time. However, maybe Survey Savvy is different, maybe it is the holy grail of survey sites! Or will Survey Savvy scam you? I tested it! Here is your answer.

Survey Savvy Connect

Normally I would start with telling you what exactly Survey Savvy is, but I know that it is clear to everyone what a survey site is. So I will start with what is different about Survey Savvy compared to other survey sites.

You can download an app at Survey Savy which is called SavvyConnect. By using this app you can see how many surveys are available for you and there are additional research opportunities. It is nice to have, but not really special, in fact it is more important to the owner of Survey Savvy. You wann know why? Well, this app collects data from your browser, so they can see what you are doing on the internet.survey savvy connect

I mean, there is the possibility to browse in private mode, but do you really want to let other people know what you are doing on the internet? I do not want to give them this information.

So in my opinion, the only thing that is different about Survey Savvy is not really positive.

Survey Savvy reviews

There are a lot of reviews of Survey Savvy on the internet. Normal people tell you their experience with Survey Savvy. I had a look at those reviews and those people do not seem to be very happy about this website.

They do not pay correctly

A lot of people claim that they did not get the payment they were promised. One person was promised to get $2 per survey, but in the end he only got $1 per survey.

Another one signed up for a direct mail study and he should get $10 per month for that. In the end he got nothing.

Not enough surveys

You are not going to get tons of surveys at Survey Savvy. In fact you only get a few surveys now and then. Most of the people who used Survey Savvy say that you only get one or two surveys per month. If you can earn $1 or $2 per survey, that would mean that you can make …. I think you can do the math yourself… I would need to get my calculator for it.

Tired of low payments?

The app doesn´t work properly

A lot of people said that they had problems with the app SavvyConnect. The app was not active on their computers or on their mobile devices, even if they installed it correctly. Because of that, they did not receive the payment they should. Survey Savvy only told them that they have to install the app to get paid. That means those people completed surveys and other things for a couple of month and never received a payment for that.

Further the app slows down the computer or mobile device.

Here have a look at this review on a site called Survey Police.Survey Savvy scam

I think there is no more information needed.

What I think about Survey Savvy

As I already said in the beginning, I already reviewed many survey sites and none of them was really good. For example Get Cash For Surveys, 1 Hour Survey or Survey Junkie, all of them were bad. Survey Savvy is no exception and it is definitely not the holy grail of survey sites.

I think you should be very careful if you want to make money with Survey Savvy nonetheless. The app really seems to do damage to your computer and I think that Survey Savvy uses the app to get information from you without having to pay for it, as a lot of members did not receive their payments, because of an “inactive” app. BS in my opinion, so be very, very careful.

There is one point I like about Survey Savvy. If you managed to get an “active” app, you can cash out immediately, even if you only earned one dollar. That is different to other surveys sites where you have to earn a lot of money or credits first, before you are able to cash out.
Unfortunately it takes a lot of time to actually get your check from Survey Savvy.

However $1 per survey is not very lucrative and I really do not think that you should waste your time with that. So I have a clear recommendation for you.

Stay away from Survey Savvy – Scam alert!

Have a look at this instead

I know that you want to make money from home, but you have to understand that there are no easy ways to do so. It always requires work and you have to be committed if you want to make it. Making money online is not a walk in the park, but it is definitely possible if you do not give up.

I make money online. In the beginning I was like you, I looked for ways to make money online, but I had no clue how that worked. I stumbled upon this online community here with over 400000 members. They offer an easy to understand training on affiliate marketing. I joined it as an absolute beginner and now I make an consistent income online. The good thing about this training platform is, that you can join for free to test it.

So if you are really interested in making money from home, have a look at it.

    Thanks for the great review Pierre! Truthfully I gave up on survey sites a while ago. In the beginning I thought if I could do enough of them by signing up to as many as I could I would make some money but nope, no luck. I can’t be sure that I didn’t sign up for Survey Savvy, but I don’t think I did. Simply because I don’t remember the app.

    I will certainly stay away from it now. There are enough things out there slowing down the computer as it is. With my luck I would probably test out of most of the surveys anyways.

    Thanks Again!

      Hey Melody,

      giving up joining survey sites was the best decision! This is just a waste of time, even if you join a lot of survey sites, it takes so many hours to get a few points, you will never be able to make a good amount of money with those sites!

      Thank you Melody!

    Another dodgy survey company exposed. I am personally not a fan of online survey companies. Low earning potential at best, time wasters and scams at worst. Just not worth my time and effort!
    I have come across two that were good; Answered Insight and Opinion Outpost… but as legit and upfront as they are, you won’t be making enough to make any difference to your lifestyle!
    Thanks for exposing this BS

      Hey Lynne,

      giving up on survey sites is the best thing you could do. It is just a waste of time. You could instead spend some time with your family.
      Well, I also reviewed Opinion Outpost here on my website and I would not join it to be honest.

      All the best,
