SurveySavvy Review

Rating: $$$$$

SurveySavvy has a very easy to use interface. Each survey is worth $1 and up and generally don’t take very long to complete. Unfortunately, with SurveySavvy you will have to complete qualification questions but they are pretty quick with disqualifications so you don’t spend too long on surveys that you can’t complete. Surveys take 1-2 weeks to credit but in my experience they always credit.

Special Projects

SurveySavvy sends out invites to special projects fairly often. These are high paying and can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to complete. In order to see if you qualify you will be asked a few questions which take less than 5 minutes to answer. If you qualify, you usually are required to have SavvyConnect downloaded or download it. These special projects pay $20+. I have even seen $65 projects being offered.


On top of taking surveys from SurveySavvy, you also are able to download SavvyConnect which monitors your web usage and sends additional surveys. Just for having it downloaded you will earn $5 a month. SavvyConnect uses a secure encryption and respects incognito and privacy mode, making it very safe to use.

Show me the money!

Payments are sent via check with a minimum cash-out requirement of only $1. They say it can take 4-12 weeks to receive payment but I have always received it within 2 weeks.

Referral Program

SurveySavvy doesn’t have a very clear Referral program, but their websites states that for every referral you will earn tier 1 incentives, which average 50¢ per survey completed. For your indirect referrals you will earn Tier 2 incentives but they don’t specify how much that is.

If you are a SavvyConnect member you will earn anywhere from $5-$15 per project for referrals and $2-$6 per project for indirect referrals.

Is SurveySavvy worth joining?

As with all survey sites, you will not earn a living using SurveySavvy but you can earn some spending money for a little bit of your time, especially with SavvyConnect. In order to maximize your earnings, I highly suggest joining multiple survey sites. You can see a list along with my reviews here.

    Hi there! I just finished reading your article about Survey Savvy and thought I would just drop you a quick comment to say thanks for the info. I have seen loads of these survey sites lately and there always seems to be new ones popping up all the time!

    To be honest, I haven’t had good experiences with these types of website, so I was quite surprised to read your review. This actually sounds like a pretty decent site.

    I hate the fact that most of these survey sites let you do ten or fifteen minutes work filling in questions, only to be told that you do not qualify! Really annoying! So I like the fact that you mention that this is a quick process with Survey Savvy.

    Savvy Connect sounds pretty good too. $5 a month isn’t a lot, but its better than a lot of sites are paying!

      Hello Andrew,

      No survey site is really perfect, I’m just trying to let people know which survey sites is best for them. The good thing about GPT sites, such as InboxDollars and Swagbucks, is that they have many activities to do. The bad thing about them is that, like you said, you will have times where you spend a quite a bit of time and get nothing or sweeps tickets.

      I prefer sites like SurveySavvy and Paid Viewpoint because you get paid more per survey and the qualification process is usually cut down alot(Paid Viewpoint doesn’t even qualification questions, you’re automatically qualified!). The drawback is that you don’t have a huge selection of surveys.

      The way that SavvyConnect work is that you download it and get $5 per month just for having it. You don’t even have to do anything. But on top of that you get the invitations for those special projects that pay very good.

    It seems like this survey site is at least better than some others I’ve heard of! If the minimum payout is $1, that is definitely better than others, which I’ve heard can be as low as five cents. You’re right, this site is not going to earn anyone a full-time income but could be great for a college student to earn a little extra cash. Have you used any other survey sites that you are comparing this one to specifically or is this the main one you recommend? Thank you for the review!!

      Yeah that’s exactly what I recommend it for. Just someone that needs a little extra money.

      For the last couple of years I’ve been doing surveys and have tried just about every site out there. I now use about 7 regularly and Surveysavvy is one of the one I use regularly.

      I have reviews of different sites throughout my website and will be adding more in the next few days. My goal is to list every site with my review included.
