Ciao: Beta than Ever!

AdvantagesEasy To Use, Good number of updated surveys available. New ones daily.

DisadvantagesSome interface niggles

"...because far less companies used Ciao to generate consumer opinion than they do now. The old method of completing surveys via Ciao, was inclusive within the Ciao consumer/ price-check website, and was a handy inclusion to bumping up Ciao Rewards from writing reviews. We are all quite aware that the payment for submitting reviews is generally quite low (ranges from 2-10 pence, although is specified that it can reach up to £3.00), but I think it is ..." Read review

The joke that is Ciao Surveys!

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesIrritating, time consuming, no rewards

"...there who doesn’t know what Ciao is, especially as you must be connected to the site if you are reading this review, but just in case I’ll tell you. Ciao is a review site which is similar to Dooyoo but with much less capacity for earning. A few years ago Ciao was the superior site of the two as Dooyoo had lots of bugs but the balance has long since shifted and Ciao is definitely second best now – in my opinion of course. Some time ago Ciao started ..." Read review

My view on Ciao surveys

AdvantagesThere is a low minimum payout of £5.00

DisadvantagesSome of the surveys are very long and you dont get paid much for them.

"Ciao surveys is very easy to join once you have registered you will have a chance to fill in your profile which has various sections for you to complete. Some of the sections include: Basic profile, Interests, Media, Travel and many more. They say the more of your profile you fill in the more likely you are to get a survey sent to you. The site sends out regular surveys by email I get about 6 a day I don't always complete them all it depends how ..." Read review

Ciao Surveys - Get Out What You Put In

Advantageseasy to use, loads of surveys, fairly quick screenouts.

Disadvantagesslow payout, only via paypal

"...been a member of the Ciao review site for a while and seeing my hard earned words reap very little reward, I decided to try and add a little more income by signing up to their survey site. Registration was quick and easy and I was ready to go within minutes. I would recommend that you complete all of the profile questions soon after signup as this maximises the amount of surveys that you will be considered for. The profiles cover all sorts of things ..."

Want a little easy money?

AdvantagesSurveys sent by e-mail, bank transfer, small minimum balance

DisadvantagesYou don't always qualify, some take a while

"I joined Ciao surveys shortly after joining Ciao to make a little extra money. It's really simple to join, you just need your e-mail address and to make up a password. In your own time, you can fill out additional information, what you like, what you do for a living etc. They use this information to send you appropriate surveys, there's no point sending you a movie survey to do if you state you hate movies. The site sends you regular e-mails with ..." Read review

Advantagesfun surveys, paid for your opinion

Disadvantagessometimes surveys pay very little

"Ciao surveys is a market research company that rewards you for taking part in online research. They reward you for taking part in online surveys.

These type of surveys are really good as you share your opinion and at the same time earn something too. Doing online survey can help with your income which is especially helpful these days with the recession ..." Read review

ciao-surveys???

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesBe prepared to have your time wasted for very little in return.

"...not being paid into my ciao account but a separate ciao-surveys account, when did I open that then???? It has a separate website and even my log in details are different?? I have contacted ciao twice about this now, no response the first time, hopefully they will reply to the second mail which has only just been sent. Anyway to summarise, ciao-co.uk = good ciao-surveys.co.uk = bad! I never agreed to 10p rewards or wanting to win sweepstake ..." Read review

CIAO SURVEYS

AdvantagesPossibilty of earning £15 for 'live' on-line discussion groups.

DisadvantagesVery low survey rewards ( ie 10p)

"...on the internet these days, Ciao being one that people who write and read reviews here might be aware of. As with most survey sites you first need to register your details and then complete a 'profile' , this will determine which survey you are selected and invited for. It is worth taking your time filling this section out. At Ciao once you've collected £5 or over in survey rewards you can request a bank transfer. I get about 4 survey invites a ..." Read review

Not as bad as people make out

AdvantagesEasy Money

DisadvantagesCan take a while to receive payment

"...that most paid better than Ciao but that the surveys were few and far between. I have read on cerain blogs that Ciao is to be avoided at all costs as it is a waste of time. Sorry, I disagree. I think the main bone of contention with critics was that there were an awful lot of surveys that only paid 10p and took about 20 or 30 minutes to complete. Yes there are that surveys which pay those paltry amounts but there are others that a lot more. ..." Read review

ciao-surveys.co.uk

Advantageswide variety of paid surveys

Disadvantagesdelay in getting paid and poorer rewards to other sites

"...the new seperate site for ciao surveys. Mainly run by Greenfield research. Although the site is quite different to the one it replaces by rewarding with very small 0.10p rewards, sometimes it does offer decent opptunities that are worth completing and survey s with a much higher reward than 0.10. I think you have to take the rough with the smooth. Choose what surveys you think are worth completing and quit ones that aren't to your taste or taking ..." Read review

Screwed again by CIAO

Advantagesnone

Disadvantageswhere do i start?

"...is who the hell is Ciao to tell me that I don't qualify for a survey before I can even take part in the survey? I know Ciao has their favorites, but now they have gone too DAMNED far. As soon as I get my £5.00 in this Ciao account and the £5.00 from the surveys account well tough noogies for ciao. While i am on a roll here people, does anybody that belongs to the surveys account, know of anyone who has actually won their so called prize drawing? I ..." Read review

Quick review of Ciao Surveys

"I came online to check my surveys account and there was nothing in it despite having actually completed a couple of surveys to the end and it being the first time I've checked my account for months. I am tired of answering many questions to find I do not fit their target group. I'm talking of many questions here, not jus a couple to see if you are who they require. It's as if you are actually doing the survey. There is no response from customer services whenever you write. I think I am now going to unsubscribe.

Online Surveys

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesIt is a waste of time

"How many people out there have been duped by the advertising about earning money by doing online surveys? The claims that you have freedom to work when you want to are correct but the rewards for such activity are way, way below what is suggested by the advertisers. The worst cuplrit of them all in offering virtually nothing for time spent is actually Ciao. I cannot believe that they can actually offer 10p for a 30 minute survey! I'd earn more with ..."

Avoid them like the plague!!!!

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesPay peanuts, if you in fact get paid!!!

"Ive been a member of Ciao for a short time, and love reading and writing reviews, and added bonus or so I thought was the survey option a great little earner, not my experience so far. I would say in my short time I have participated in around half a dozen surveys, for the prospect of a quite miniscule reward, but hey money is tight so every penny is a bonus, a joke really as I havent yet made aone single spondooli, nowt the sum total of zilch! Well ..." Read review
