Only Cash Surveys claims to pay you cash for filling out surveys online. When you register you are immediately credited $5 on your account. The cash payout threshold is $50. You can also claim rewards which you can use for magazine subscriptions or for  Amazon gift codes.

I came across their website and thought this looked like something nice to try for some extra dough. I decided to check this out and will take you through my experience which took up over an hour of my day today.

I found registering a problem at first. It kept telling me there was something wrong with my email address.

Only Cash Surveys Review sign upI tried numerous times to register with the same error coming up. It then occurred to me that I didn’t click any of their “extra” options. I clicked all the options and what do you know I had no problem getting in!

Only Cash Surveys extraIn my dashboard I had a lovely big box telling me I have earned my first $5 and that there are possibly 3 surveys available to me. How exciting, maybe I can make some cash?

Only Cash Surveys payI took the first survey and this is where it took me. But hang on, there is no monetary value to this survey? I was under the impression that I would be making money for each survey I take?

Only Cash Surveys survey example no 1.1So I click on it anyway just to see where it takes me. Apparently it is 2 minutes long so that won’t be too much of a problem right?

I get taken to this page below. I’m confused, am I a Data Pro Business Online user? But hey look, I can win an iPhone! Let’s click it anyway and see what happens!

Only Cash Surveys Example 1.2I click on the link and get taken to the page in the screenshot below. Oh wait, have I forgotten something? Yes I never answered any survey questions. I thought this was a survey? I click on the link to win the phone anyway.

Now I am getting confused, I thought I would be answering surveys on Only Cash Surveys to make money not be redirected all over the place to win an iPhone? I just go back to my dashboard to see what the other 2 surveys offer.

So from my dashboard I enter the 2nd survey on offer. Clicking on the survey I am taken to this page, that shows this one is actually for money even if it is only $1.

Only Cash Surveys not availableAfter all of this I decided not to bother trying for that 1 survey that is now “available”. I know some people will try again and go for that possible $1. I am not that kind of person. If I get messed around from the start and find that what I was promised I am not receiving I just move on.

Instead I decided to do some searching online to see what other people are saying about Only Cash Surveys before I made a final decision about this company.

The general feedback I found online about Only Cash Surveys is:

  • They move the payout thresholds regularly so you can’t cash out!
  • If the payout threshold is $50 you can work really hard while being messed around and just before you reach your $50 the surveys stop!
  • If you have reached the payout threshold some payments are held back because they are “pending”
  • It is impossible to reach the payment threshold and they offer rewards instead
  • These rewards redirect you all over the place making it impossible to actually claim anything
  • Surveys completed mysteriously disappear
  • If you contact them and complain you suddenly can’t log in.
  • Surveys can be pending for 6 months before they are allocated to you
  • Payments are delayed as long as a year
  • Can’t complete any surveys because they are always “full” half way through

There were a few people that said they have made money from Only Cash Payments, but the majority complained of the above issues.


This is a prime example of why I avoid online survey companies! There are some legit ones out there but they are far and few between. As far as I am concerned this is a scam. A scam is not just when someone robs you of your money, it is also when someone gives you false information and wastes your time. Time is a valuable commodity and you can use it to make money. If someone steals your time they are still stealing your money.

  1. Oh dear this sounds like another carefully planned out money extractor – I hate the sites that give you cash to sign up with them ( you’ll never get to spend it in the long run ).
    You are right though – there are some very legit survey sites out there but they all take hard work to make minimum wage.
    What would you recommend as an avenue for earning online?

  2. Another scam in the wild online world! Thank you for your detailed review, Lynne.
    The way you put a picture for every step of their program makes it easy to understand how their system works! They simply want us to fill survey after survey for nothing. You saved my time and I won’t ever go near this program. Thanks. Albert.

    • It’s a pleasure Albert. Nothing more annoying that having your time wasted like this.

  3. Hi Lynne,
    this is great review. I must say that I never believed in that way of earning money. Common sense tells you that everybody would do that if it is working. We need more reviews of this kind. I hope that this will be helpful for many of us which are trying to earn few extra bucks online. Thank you very much.

  4. Hello there , what a mess was that huh?…I have been taking surveys the last 2-3 years with no serious luck.First of all there are not a lot of surveys for my country.When they exist 90% of the times I got kicked out due to demographics and other reasons.When I finally take a survey it lasts 10-15 minutes to get $1 , $2 tops.Pretty awesome , right?…

    Unfortunately all these surveys sites with the redirects are scams.There are legit and these are not paying much.I do not believe that surveys is a steady plan to make any serious money online.And what a negative feedback is that you found about them.

    Thanks for pointing out another useless site.Now I won’t have to lose my time on them.

    • Hi Tasos, thanks for visiting. That is what I can’t get my head around either. They say you can make a fortune, but at $1 – $2 per survey that is impossible. Just the fact that they say you can earn loads of money is dishonest already!

  5. Hi there,

    This is a perfect review to point out how a scam survey site works.
    I can see how frustrating this must be being pushed around like that. I’m glad you gave this many details.
    I’ve personally never gone that far within survey opportunities because I would get bored very easily.. However I did had the idea most of them worked on a legitimate base. Thanks for clearing that out!

    It’s a bit scary how much power a website can have that it can just delay payments, delete your completed surveys, pending payments and many more… I hope there will be some rules in place online one day that will make these practices illegal!

    You were talking about legitimate survey sites in the end… Can you give us some examples of those?

    Cheers and thanks for this informative post!

    • Hi Maarten

      Yes, I also would not have gone so far but for the purpose of reviews I do! I like to get the full picture.
