“Masters of all they survey?”

published 04/12/2005

Pay real money, usually easy to complete

They're out to get information for nothing

If money talks, it speaks volumes about Ciao's priorities. Sweat out a review of a well-remunerated product, assuming a few dozen reads, and you could earn a pound or two. Usually it's a lot less. If you're like me, you may have spent many hours writing and researching that review. Fill in a...

“Start of a slippery slope?”

published 23/11/2007

Lets you earn some extra cash

Can be infuriating

I may be rocking the boat here a bit and may even upset some of the "Die hard Loyal Ciao fans", however in recent times I have become a little dismayed with the survey side of Ciao. My little winge consists of two parts. The first one is the amount of money that is being paid to members for...

“More Questions than Answers”

published 17/04/2006

Sounds like Easy Money

Can be dissapointing / annoying

The Dream Money for nothing, well that is the idea at least money for sitting on your arse a not doing very much, that is the appeal of these surveys, you simply fill in a few details about your habits, nasty or otherwise and get paid a handsome reward. Along with the tupence's you get for...

“Why do I even bother?”

When I first joined Ciao in 2002, it was not to write reviews, in fact I didn't even realise that you could take part in that side of the site. No, I joined Ciao after receiving an email telling me how I could make my fortune by being paid to complete surveys that they sent me. At the time I...

“Paid Surveys at Ciao!”

published 14/02/2009

regular surveys, £5 Minimum payout

low incentive for most long surveys

Signed up to 'Ciao Surveys' when I started trying out several survey sites a few months ago. The site is free to join and open to members over 14 years of age and UK residents for the UK version of the site. I signed up free and waited for surveys to come in which they did. They are mostly...

I've been on Ciao for getting on for 3 years now, and once I really got into it, I found it to be a useful little flow of money. More recently though when the "Ciao Beta" started, with very poor rewards, made up with prize draw entries that paid out big, but with little chance of winning, I was...

Ciao surveys have been slagged off a bit in the review section I have noticed (maybe by newcomers who have found they havn't recieved as many survey offers as they expected) so I decided I woud try to shed some sort of light on the whole topic with my own experiences of 'ciao surveys'. Firtstly...

“Our Survey Said...”

published 20/02/2002

Easy to complete, cash to be earned

Sporadic allocation and availability

When the decrease in payment rates was introduced last year, many members looked to the receipt of Ciao surveys as a substitute for the loss in earnings that they had enjoyed up until then. I have read a number of reviews since then that have dismissed the concept as an earnings opportunity...

Since the new Ciao re-design in November 2003 this opinion has been updated in 2004,2005, 2006 & 2007. Whether you are a new or old member reading this opinion one of the best part sof Ciao is the availability of Ciao Surveys has nothing to do with your activity or length of membership on the...

“Every little pennny helps”

published 19/11/2003

simple to complete, momneyt not points

Can be infrequent

There seem to be a lot of badly written reviews about Ciao surveys on this site. Perhaps because they are witan by newcomers who were introduced to Ciao by the surveys then discovered the reviews. I must admit this was the case with me. I am sure I found Ciao via a list of survey sites as I was...

***Ciao Surveys*** What are they? They are surveys (ok,I'm stating the obvious),which Cioa offers it's members a chance to participate in (*yep you have to be a Ciao member,and very rewarding it is too!!). They can vary from a few very simple screening questions to an indepth record of your...

Earning Money

Not Earning Money, False Advertising

I find myself confused by the purpose of Ciao surveys of late. When I joined Ciao I took great pride in earning my pennies by participating in the relevant surveys they sent me on a fairly regular basis. However recently though my profile is 100% complete the surveys being sent to be seem to be...

How to earn money fast.

Sometimes sparce.

I am a little miffed and thought I would come here to rant because the subject of Ciao surveys is dear to me, and is a potential earner, although one that Ciao U.K. apparently keep hidden from me. WHAT ARE CIAO SURVEYS Ciao members are asked from time to time to fill out page after page of...

Can often be interesting and profitable

Takes time

That's right I have participated in 5 surveys since joining ciao a couple of months ago. You might think that it is not a lot. But believe me there are people who have been members of ciao for a much longer time and received less. Why do I get so many, well I will come that later! Right, you have...

easy money

takes a while to get paid

As part of the ciao experience members are invited on their profile page to tick a box allowing them to participate in surveys . I did this several months ago without expecting it to come to anything. The page asks you about your general interests and hobbies and you tick the relevant sections...
