Recommended? Definitely. I remember this one back in the “good old days“, and it’s still around. That says something. They even still had me on file, although all my points had been wiped out for not logging in for, oh, say 5 years. While not a big earner, it is a legit, paying site.

Panda Research – Payment Received!

Name: Panda Research

Date joined: 12/18/2010

Referral program? Yes


Amount earned: $50.00 Paid, $7.00 Pending

Paid? Yes! Requested first payout 02/18/12. I received the following message on my screen after requesting processing:


I received a “Panda Research Verification Call” email on 3/17/12. The email stated in part:

“We have found that many members do not answer our verification call due to not answering an unknown phone number. We are in the process of posting our phone number on the website, and at this time we ask you to contact us to verify your payment request and answer a few basic personal details to make sure that we can consider it as verified which helps us to keep fraud related activity in check. 

Once your account has been verified, your payment request will be submitted, and all payments are made directly to your PayPal account on the 1st or 15th of every month after the mandatory 30 day wait period from the day you submit for payment if phone verified.(except weekends or holidays) This information is also listed in our terms and conditions. “

They included a phone number for me to contact them. It took me a few tries to get through, but once I did they verified some information on my account, and advised I should be receiving my payment on 4/2/12.

Just as promised, the payment arrived! I am very happy to report that, contrary to all the negative reviews, is legit and NOT a scam!

Panda Research Payment Proof:


Survey Invitations Received and Result: The survey invitations received are more paid registrations than anything else. However they do reward higher than at other sites. Their dashboard does do a good job of keeping track what they send out, but I’m not overly thrilled with the minimum $50.00 payment. They pay by PayPal.

Recommended? Yes! I’m so pleased to add this site to the Recommended queue. When you google this program, you get tons of “OMG Scam” posts, but I was happy to see a recent post at College Student Making Money Online showing a payment proof.

Name: MemoLink

Type of program: Surveys, Paid Emails, Crowdsourcing, Paid Registrations, Paid Referrals

Date joined: 12/24/2010

Referral program? Yes, 50 points per referral plus shopping percentage (10% of points)
Amount earned: 6915  points
Paid? Not yet. Minimum redemption is 19,200 points ($10.00). You can get a check made payable to CASH. You can also get gift cards or gas cards starting at 19,200 points as well. You need to be an upgraded Memogold member to get payment via PayPal
Recommended? Time will tell. Back in the good old days, this was high on my recommended list. I don’t like that there isn’t a referral URL any longer, and that you need to send referrals through internal email only. Right now it seems like the majority of the points can only be earned through shopping, although they have a few paid videos and registrations.  I’ll give this a month to see how the new Memolink pays as opposed to the old one back in 2000.

Inbox Dollars Adds Paid Searches



In one of my paid emails from Inbox Dollars today, there was the news that they are adding a cash for search feature, similar to the rewarded searches from Swagbucks.


The link in the email leads to their help page, which summarizes the changes to this new earning opportunity, and adds the following disclaimer:


“* A “qualified search” on the InboxDollars® Toolbar is one that’s made by a real person seeking real search results.  Repeat or fraudulent search attempts, including those made by robots, hackers and computer scripts, don’t count as qualified searches. 

Furthermore, any earnings from unqualified or fraudulent searches will be deducted from your account, and any person, committing fraudulent search activity may be removed from InboxDollars®. Note:  You must be logged in to the Toolbar to earn search credits.

Rewards will not be earned when searching for:


  • Images or videos
  • “Search This Site” searches
  • URL or website domains, including terms that end in .com, .org, .net, .edu, etc.
  • Well-known websites, such as AOL, CNN, Facebook, Gmail, Hotmail, MySpace, etc.
  • Stock quotes or word definitions
  • Searches that contain a phrase that yields no search results or gibberish”

This is great news from Inbox Dollars, one of the oldest legitimate and paying sites online. I gave it a test this morning and will update next week the results from searching. I’d suggest adding a valid search through Inbox Dollars to your daily routine.
