Yet another website that claims to pay you.... except, unlike most, they actually mean it! Ok, well maybe they don't pay you, i'm not sure whether they do or not seen as i've only recently signed up to this website. By the looks of it thought they're going to pay me to write opinions [remind you...

Well at least I fit into one of the above categories. I am still in education, so therefore I am a student. One of the ways I try to earn a little extra money as a poor student is write opinions for things like ciao or dooyoo. The prospect of earning £5, that’s five pounds per opinion...

ConsCan't see it lasting, no community.

www.smartstudents.co.uk is a site basically designed for and aimed at students, however underneath its University mask lies an added attraction, there are numerous categories available and once into these you will find reviews, reviews submitted by people like you and me, nothing out of the...

Pro£5 per review...

Cons...but not much else

These opinion-writing web sites are a funny old lot. If you’re an expert and an enthusiast, you could probably cut and paste your work into at least a dozen sites, and scrape a few quid off each whilst you’re at it. I tend to stick with Ciao, because I think they’ve got it right...

ProPays well and promptly.

ConsNo sense of Community.

~ ~ This site first made its appearance on the Web at the back end of last year, (2001) and having heard on the “opinionated community” gossip grapevine that they were paying £5 per opinion posted, I was naturally enough tempted to go and have a look at what it was all about...

ConsRestricted to students

This site is an absolute must for uk students, not only does it provide a wealth of useful information written by students, for students it pays well - £5 per review! If only Ciao were as generous. The idea is similar to Caio in that it invites reviews on everything related to student life and...

Proget paid!!

Conscan't see any yet

If you are a student you may want to know about this site. Smartstudents.co.uk is a new site on the web particularly for students all over the country. So far it looks great although I won’t know until the cheque arrives through my letterbox. I’m hoping it will anyway although as yet I have not...

“Cash For The Students”

published 22/03/2002

Progood pay rate, fun site

Conswish they paid out quicker

Again this is another way of making money online but this mainly directed at students although you don't have to be a student to join. I first heard of this site from a friend and couldn't believe when I heard they paid you £5 a review, I thought to myself surely this has to be some joke. I went...

ProPays a lot

ConsAbsolutely zero community spirit

And so another candidate in the 'Make a fortune online' stakes comes to the fore, leaving us feeling untouched by its attraction. SmartStudents - http://www.smartstudents.co.uk - is another opinion writing site, just like BigRag, Dooyoo and Ciao which on the one hand looks extremely profitable...

ConsSome unis are reviewed better than others

Smartstudents has proved to be one of the top websites aimed at UK students, thanks to the breadth and depth of information that it provides. I came across the site quite by accident a few months ago and have found myself visiting it every fortnight or so during term time, to keep abreast of the...

I was sent a link to visit this site by a friend and I am glad that I visited it. The site is really well laid out, I like the decor bright and bubbly yellow and flashing colours, although I won’t suggest it if you’ve got an hang over. It’s an all round site for students with...
