Is Survey Sheep A Scam?
Ah… the never ending stream of survey sites. They are never ending.
Well, this is another survey-related site that appears to suggest that you can at least earn a decent extra cash on the site, or so they say.
However, upon actual entry into this website, I realise that this isn’t your typical survey site. Because it’s really just a portal into a range of other survey sites.
This is how it works: you sign up with Survey Sheep and they will provide you with a selection of survey sites to sign up to.
Every time you sign up with a survey site via this website, (and yes, you will have to go through the whole sign-up process each and every time) Survey Sheep will earn a commission.
Survey sheep will either earn a one off commission per sign up, (some CPA networks are connected with survey sites) or they’ll be part of a survey site referral program, where they’ll likely earn a percentage of whatever you earn.
This is fine, it doesn’t effect how much you’ll earn or anything like that.
But you should just know that this website isn’t directing to survey sites because they’re particularly good ones that they’ve chosen, they’re just directing you there for monetary gain.
I was trying out survey sites way before I started this blog and have reviewed many survey sites since.
Absolutely none of the survey sites I’ve tested and reviewed are really worth the amount of time and effort involved in making money with them.
The amount you actually get back vs the effort you put in, is ridiculous.
The only sites survey-related sites that I tend to recommend, are sites that have additional, (low-effort) ways to make money, (e.g, cashback and getting paid to search) because those are the things that I still make use of.
For example, every time I get a takeaway on JustEat, or book a hotel online, I can get cashback and this is just a zero effort way to save money online.
Is Survey Sheep Worth Your Time?
There are tonnes of middleman surveys sites online today. But you may just as well check out some of the best survey sites online by searching for reviews and sign up to them from there.
Survey Sheep are not interested in directing you to the best survey sites online for you – you won’t see any pros and cons on their website, or in depth reviews….there are just direct links to the sites themselves.
Like I said, I don’t rate survey sites highly as a way to make money online – because the income is so minimal. (Although, I still hope that one day they’ll improve and I’ll stumble upon a diamond in the rough).
If you’re looking to make money online long term, here are some companies that have recently paid me. Just so you know, this did not happen overnight and took a lot of work on my part.
Are The Survey Sites On Survey Sheep Legit?
When I initially signed up to Survey Sheep, I was immediately told to sign up to the surveys above this message, before I enter the members area.
However, weirdly there was only a single site that I could sign up with and that was Survey Downline, (see below!).
I thought that was a bit odd, but also – I didn’t give Survey downline a good review. It’s a bit of a hybrid site between a survey site and an MLM, because you recruit people and build a downline.
So, it makes sense they’re promoting Survey Downline here, as the affiliate program was one of the only plus points to it.
I had previously signed up with Survey Downline for the purposes of review, but this time I used some made up details.
Still, after returning to Survey Sheep after signing up, there was still only Survey Downline available…
So, perhaps they will all suddenly appear before me soon!

Survey Sheep Is Misleading:
I noticed in their “About Us,” section they claim to automatically match you up with surveys, dependent on the info you give them in your profile section.
There are a couple of problems with this:
- There is no profile section for you to complete on Survey Sheep, as far as I have found.
- Even if there was, you need to independently sign up to any survey sites that Survey Sheep introduces you to. There is nothing automatic about it and your profile section, (if there was one) would make no difference to what surveys you would or wouldn’t qualify for.
They also run a lie via their advertising online. With reports of some ads online saying you can make up to $75 per survey. This is just crap.
The most legitimate survey sites will be completely transparent and tell you this isn’t the chance for you to replace your employment, you’ll earn a very small amount.
Generally with surveys you’ll be lucky to make $1 per survey. Never in my time reviewing survey sites have a been offered anything over $10 and I think the highest one ever was on cashcrate, (that I didn’t qualify for anyway!).
The most that I’ve actually made from a single survey online was about $2 and I think that took me an hour!!
The only time you MAY earn more, is when you’re put into a focus group.
But those are very few and far between, (yet something some survey sites always mention, because the income opportunity is higher).
Is Survey Sheep A Scam? BAA! Not Exactly…
There are plenty of sites out there similar to this, except they will actually CHARGE YOU to join and even charge a monthly fee in some cases.
Within those scam sites, they just link you to multiple other survey sites and claim you can make hundreds or thousands a month, just from completing online surveys.
By contrast, survey sheep is a free website, where you can earn a small amount online by being introduced to various survey sites online.
So, I wouldn’t say it’s a scam exactly, but there is some deception going on and I wouldn’t waste my time signing up to a website like this.
You can find any of the survey sites easily online by doing a quick Google search.
