BigSpot Review

Name: BigSpot

Type: Online Surveys

Short Review: BigSpot is another online survey site among thousands of others. They are promising easy money for sharing your opinions. Doesn’t it sound good?

The truth is that they are just a middleman between you and other low paying online survey companies. Your earnings won’t be more than $2-3 per hour by filling out their offers so it’s definitely not worth it.

If you are looking for ways to earn a living online, I highly recommend having a closer look at My #1 Recommendation. Their training has taught me and thousands of other people worldwide to make a living online.

What Is BigSpot?

Even though BigSpot advertises that they pay you if you share them your opinion, they don’t actually pay you a dime themselves. They connect you with other online survey websites that can pay you some money.

Those websites ask you questions regarding different kind of products and brands. Then companies use this information for improving their products. That’s why they are willing to pay you a little reward for hearing your opinion.

However, the reward is so small that it’s not worth the time. I’m not using my time with any online survey websites. Anyhow, it’s interesting that BigSpot has even been promoting their website on TV:

It’s true that survey companies pay millions for their members and users. But the fact that they don’t mention is that each member is only earning a few dollars each. If you share $10,000,000 with 5,000,000 people, they don’t get very much money each. Got the point? 😉 Good.

Let me show you the process of earning money on BigSpot.

How to Make Money with BigSpot?

When you land on their website you see the sign-up form. You need to fill out your personal information: Email, Date of Birth, Gender, Ethnicity, and Country. Then click, “Join Now”.

BigSpot will offer you companies that are targeted for people that match your demographics. I “matched” with 5 different survey sites that you can see below:

BigSpot offered me 5 survey websites.

I already know some of these sites. You can have a look at my Toluna review here. I earned some little money from their website but I quickly stopped answering their surveys because I realized it wasn’t worth it. Toluna was actually one of the first survey sites that I ever tried.

Then I quickly learned the name of the game and I realized it’s better not to waste my time on these sites.

As you can see, BigSpot was just a middleman that takes you to other survey sites. They earn some affiliate commissions from each member that joins the survey sites through their website.

They ask for your information when signing up because they collect some statistics and data for themselves. Actually, you wouldn’t need BigSpot for anything. You could sign up to their partners’ website even without that middle man.

BigSpot Reviews & Complaints

I took a look at other BigSpot reviews to see what other people are thinking about this website. I wanted to see if they recommend it for you or don’t. The results are obvious:

Most people are giving BigSpot only 1-2 stars out of 5 which means that they don’t recommend it for others. They have come obviously to the same conclusion like I did: wasting time on sites like BigSpot is not worth it.

Conclusion – Is BigSpot Worth It?

Is BigSpot a scam? No.
Is BigSpot Worth it? Not either.

Even though their website isn’t a scam, the reward is so small that I don’t recommend their services for you. You can make a living online or earn even a fortune so why would you waste your valuable time on sites like BigSpot?

The most successful investor in the world, Warren Buffett, once said; “The more you learn, the more you earn.” This is quite true. If you use time on answering surveys, you are not learning almost anything. As a result, you won’t earn almost anything.

If you want to make good money online, you need to learn new skills and put them into action. You may be asking, “But how and where could I learn those skills?”

Brian Tracy says, “If you do what other successful people do, you will eventually get the same results like they do.” So I recommend that you learn the process from those people who have already walked the path before you.

I want to offer you my 1-on-1 mentoring and support inside Wealthy Affiliate. You can get started for completely free and you’ll get 20 interactive video lessons which will teach you the process how you can start making money online.

If you think whether it’s possible or not to earn a living online, have a look at these 5 guys who make +$10,000/month from the comfort of their own homes. Of course, that kind of income requires lots of hard work. But if you are satisfied with an extra $500 per month, you’ll achieve that more easily.

Have you also stopped answering online surveys?

  1. How I wish I’ve read your blogs before I wasted so much of my time and sacrificed sleep for these kind of websites. This was the kind of online job I ever first tried, and it is far from worth it. Answering surveys were very boring for me but I had this wrong idea that they were easy money.

    I guess in a way it is, but it would take a whole lot of time before reaching the minimum payout, and that minimum payout is still a very small amount of money. If only I got to your blog a little earlier, I would have saved so much time and effort and put there somewhere more profitable. Now, I’d make sure to read your reviews before trying out any kind of online jobs.

    Have you tried Snuckls?

    1. Hi,

      I haven’t yet tried Snuckls but I’ll give it a closer look and try it. Then I’ll publish a review of it. The first impression of Snuckls isn’t very convincing but I enjoy trying these new services to provide information for my readers.

  2. Recently, I got hooked with the survey sites that promises payout once you complete them. It turned out they’re just making out a way to get information. I must say this article is really helpful in making you aware before you get in that situation. I hope people around the world would get to read this.

    1. Hi John,

      yeah, survey sites want to get your information but don’t pay high rewards.

      I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed my content. Feel free to share it with your friends 🙂

  3. Thank you for sharing. Now i am aware about this site. I really thought they are legit but sad to say another scammers site has been discovered. This article is very useful and i thank you Roope Kiuttu for sharing us and telling us the truth about this webiste. I am very thankful for that honest review. Godbless to you and your website keep it up.

    1. Hi Jemuel,

      Thank you very much for the positive feedback. I’m glad you enjoyed.

      I wouldn’t say that BigSpot is a scam. They’re just a middleman between survey sites and you.

      God bless you as well!

      1. Sorry i misunderstood. Thank you for noticing my feedback at your post. It sounds to me a scam in your reviews and when i re read it i saw they were just middleman.

        They are not paying the rate they have promised. Did i said it correctly? By the way thank you. wish you all the best. I love your website . I am hoping you will have more reviews on other money earning related website.

        1. Hi Jemuel,

          Yeah, their marketing makes it sound that they would pay you very well for answering surveys but the reality is difference. That’s why it’s a bit shady.

          I will keep on publishing more content regularly 🙂 I enjoy trying and researching new opportunities!

  4. They are money machine company with ‘injustice system.? I’m not hooked up with this market-affiliating strategies i’d rather be a logo designer.:) thanks for your honest review it is indeed eye opener to us.

  5. This blog is definitely true! i hate surveys its really a waste of time. I’ve rather click and download application for a low points that answering surveys.

  6. I must be honest here, I don’t enjoy anything about answering survey questions on any site and even with the detailed analysis you gave about BigSpot, I don’t think it is worth my time. I have had ugly experiences with lots of survey sites that I have given up hope on earning on any of them.

    I won’t want to mention some of those sites that have made me do some surveys and did not pay or should I talk about those that always hang up the survey when I’m almost close to completing those surveys. The list is just countless for me and with each site comes disappointment, so I won’t try registering on any of them again.

    I prefer doing other freelancing works online instead of wasting my time as well as my data connection on answering survey questions that pay me nothing at the end.

    1. Hi Henry,

      you’ve made a great choice because you’ve stopped answering online surveys. Which freelancer site you are using?

      At the moment I don’t work on other sites than One Hour Translation. However, they pay very well. Today I earned $19,35 in 35 minutes. In order to earn the same money with online surveys I would have needed to waste hours of my time.

  7. Now I see. They will just route you to different companies will pay you to do an online survey for them. There are so many companies that really pay and are not a scam.

    However, their common denominator is that they pay so low that it is not even worth your time. The situation is worse in my case as I can’t even qualify for a survey. I have tried around 5-6 online survey jobs and most of the times, I get a lot of messages saying the information I have provided does not make me qualify to take their surveys.

    In addition, as stated in the in your article there are no available surveys most of the time. This regular occurrence made me give up on taking online surveys.

  8. The truth is, i was about to sign up on a survey site until i read this and i changed my mind. Answering surveys for $2-$3 is totally a waste of time. And using BigSpot, is a totally waste of effort. Thank you so much for the information by the way.

    As of now, i’m unemployed and trying to find a living online. And I think i can do well on editing photos, transcribing, or even encoding. But i’m really having a hard time searching for legit sites. This serves as a guide for me to find a good online job. Thank you so much.

  9. That’s why I don’t do surveys. I don’t learn from them. It’s all about critiques. Nevertheless, you are helping the company improve. Your opinion about it is a good impact to them but the pay is not justified that’s why it makes our time wasted. I was really hoping about the #1 recommendation you are suggesting. Maybe I’ll join someday.

  10. Well! As I was expected from all online surveying websites. They only pay you for a certain amount of money like it’s not worthy of your time. You could only earn a little and it takes a longer amount of time to finish the job.

    The fact that you could earn about $2-$3 per hour it’s not good enough and it sounds dreadful. I would rather search another online job that would give me fair enough of money to earn.

    1. That’s true Jogoy.

      $2-3 per hour is much below the minimum salary. In addition, answering surveys isn’t a very meaningful activity.

      Would do you think about affiliate marketing? By doing that you can reach thousands of people all around the world and earn good money at the same time.

  11. Many website today persuading people to join, but the truth of the matter is that we are just using those persuading words to attract the people to join them, however they just really focus on promoting their products from their clients for their personal benefits.

    1. That’s definitely true RJ. On the Internet it’s easy to talk the nice talk without providing the real value. That’s why I always recommend checking at least a few reviews on the Internet before investing time and money on new opportunities 🙂

  12. I heard about this site a few weeks ago while I’m searching for legit sites to earn money online, good thing I found this site and have read your article. It’s really hard to give our personal information to sites that we don’t know if it’s legit or scam, but we do it anyway, hoping we get the chance to find a site that really pays. Aside from the information we give out, we also invest our time in those sites. Thank you for the heads up.

    1. Hi Victoroj,

      that’s a good point. Time is one of our most important resources. Time equals life. How we use our life defines our lives. That’s why I always encourage people doing more meaningful things than answering online surveys or doing other low paying “mini jobs” online.

  13. I don’t think that it provides $2-3 a day but still, if anybody wants to earn money while doing the survey then they can also register on various top sites instead of signing up to this one because I think this site is earning a huge commission by giving you the survey from the top sites.

    1. Hi Samkhan,

      As I mentioned in the comments above, BigSpot doesn’t take any money from your earnings. Still, the money you would be earning is so small that answering online surveys is definitely not worth it.

      I’ve researched around 70-80 online surveys sites and I don’t recommend any of them for you. If you’re looking for a good way to earn money online, I recommend starting from Wealthy Affiliate.

  14. The irony of many survey sites is they pay so little that they would only really be viable for countries with low wages.

    It gets more funny because most of them only accept people who speak English, and then finally they exclude countries like the Philippines and India which means the only people who can apply are from countries where you are going to be earning way below the minimum wage.

    The only way these sites work is if you are from a poor country and you hide your IP address.

    1. Hi Petesede,

      that’s true. But also for people from poor countries it would be more profitable to do other activities. I always talk about affiliate marketing because it’s a way how I learned to make a living online.

      However, at the moment I’m in Portugal in the digital nomad event and I’ve realized how many ways there really are to make a living on the Internet. In my opinion, creating an easily scalable business is the best strategy (and it’s possible with affiliate marketing also).

  15. I thought it would be a new site, not a site collecting other survey sites! I know most of them and I have tried them so sadly it’s nothing new for me. I didn’t like any of them, surveys pay very little and are not a good source of income. I don’t know who still does them.

      1. That’s what I’ve been thinking so far after many times of trying paid surveys. What’s more worser is that you’ll always find yourself a hard time getting past at least one survey at a moment of day. Really not worth the time.

        1. That’s true Jazzinto. I’ve heard the same story from tens and tens of people.

          It’s strange that some online marketers still promote online survey sites just because they want to earn commissions from their referrals. I made a decision early on that I wouldn’t recommend survey sites because they are not worth it. I want to promote only services that are useful for my audience.

  16. $2-$3 per hour sounds absolutely awful. You could earn a lot more by taking up other earning opportunities. The biggest problem with BigSpot is the fact that they are a middle man. That means they will be taking most of the money that they earn for you completing the survey and just giving you a tiny amount. That’s why I prefer survey sites that give their very own surveys.

    1. Hi Kingcool,

      BigSpot doesn’t actually take anything from your survey earnings. They just lead you to the other website and you earn the money that you would earn anyway even without this middleman. That’s why BigSpot doesn’t really have any benefit.

      1. Ah, I understand now. So they just earn money as an affiliate from you joining the survey sites they advertised which is good I guess but the problem for them is that it is only a one time earning per user. It seems they suggest good survey sites as well, I use I-Say and have had a lot of rewards from them. They are probably the best survey site that you could join so I would definitely recommend it to you.
