**Update 09 July 2020**
Please note that when I originally wrote this post Answered Insight was fantastic as you can see from my review. However a while back they posted on their Facebook page that they were having website troubles and they were updating their website. Since then they have been unresponsive and they are not paying out money due. This difficulty has been going on for about a year now which is completely unacceptable and disappointing.
Please do not sign up with this website until they have resolved this issue – I will update this post if they ever sort this out.
In the meantime if you are looking for a legit survey website that pays out have a look at my Clixsense review (Now called Ysense) that I have now cashed out over $1200 with to date. Sign up here for Ysense.
Introduction: What is Answered Insight?
Answered Insight is an online survey company in South Africa. You will be paid to take surveys.
I have been with Answered Insight for about 4 years. Registering was easy and once you have registered you fill out your profile. The more details you put in your profile the more surveys you are likely to receive. They didn’t ask for any personal information, only information like whether you are the main decision maker for purchasing certain things in the household, information on pets you own and how many children in the household.
I started receiving surveys quite soon after registering, however the surveys do not come often. If there is a survey available that you may be eligible for they send an email with a link to the survey. The first few questions are screening questions to check if you are eligible for the survey and if you aren’t they let you know immediately. You then get added into a draw to win R1000 (which I have never won). Most of the surveys I have been eligible for. Each survey takes anything from 5 – 20 minutes to complete.
They work on a point system. Each survey you take is usually worth 10 points. 10 points has a cash out value of R20 (appr $1.60).
Cashing out has always been easy. There is a nice big cash out button on their website, the first time you cash out you just enter your banking details and they transfer into your account within 5 days. The next time you cash out your banking details are in their system so you just click cash out.
It is clear from the survey questions that these are real surveys sent in by real companies in South Africa. It has been very rare that I have not been aware of the brands in the surveys.
Overall a very user friendly experience and everything is very much legit and honest.
Here is a screenshot from my account of the first surveys completed so you can see how often you receive them.
Answered Insight Pros & Cons
- Legit Company
- Paid Cash (as opposed to vouchers)
- User Friendly and Simple
- Honest Work
- R20 a survey is pocket money and will not pay the bills
- Few surveys received
- You need to respond to the survey request quite fast. They only need a certain number of people for each survey and if you take too long the quota is full already
- Their website can be slow to load at times which is annoying

Who is Answered Insight suitable for?
Anyone that needs a bit of spare cash will like this. Although you really can’t earn much I have often forgotten about it and my points have built up nicely. A few times when it has been a painful money month I have remembered I have points owing to me and cashed out about R1000 which really did help me out.
Training/ Tools Overview
I haven’t seen any training or tools available, but this is such a simple system there is no need for any training. You receive an email, click the link and answer the questions in the survey.
I have only ever contacted them via email to ask a question and they replied same day. Judging by this I would say their service and support is good.
No costs involved.
Is Answered Insight a Scam or Legit?
They are 100% legit and that is why I have stayed with them for a good number of years.
Verdict for Answered Insight?
I wouldn’t give up your day job for this! However if you don’t have high earning expectations it is lovely to have some extra money for a rainy day. It is honest and legitimate work which is a breath of fresh air after all the scams I have come across online.
