My mom does online surveys and makes any where from $30-50/month. This works well for her because she can make some pocket money without leaving the house.

Excellent suggestion. I participate in surveys with pinecone, mysurvey and global test market. They are legitimate companies, along with others, that pay you for your opinion. Simple do a search for paid surveys. Of course, never pay a company for the privilege to do surveys!

I tried that once but the site I tried only paid like $5 a survey and wouldnt let you cash out till you got to $50. The problem was they didnt even offer me enough surveys to even get to $50. I checked back a month later and they still didnt open up any more surveys, so I felt like I just wasted my time. Are the ones you listed like that, because if they actually work then Id give it one more shot.

I'm guessing, based on comments she's told me, that she probably spends on average about 10-15 minutes/day. Some days more, some days less. I'm not sure what sites she uses, but I think she probably frequents about a dozen sites on a regular basis. Time is the one thing that she has plenty of, so even if it takes her 30 minutes for a $4 survey then she'll do it. I know she's also done some product sample testing and she said that she was paid around $20 for those.

I am signed up with PineCone - they pay via PayPal, this is much more convenient than cashing $3.00 checks. We are pretty much out of the 'consumer market' so I do not get a lot of surveys - I guess I will have to expand and do more surveys.

You can see which survey sites I use by checking out my blog. I usually make $200-$400 per month average. There really are lots of good survey sites out there and plenty of bad ones. Be careful and never pay to join any survey sites!

What is the downside to filling out these forms. I'm anticipating recieving spam mail (already opened another email account just for the spam), but what about phone calls, snail mail spam, etc.

Can I provide a bogus phone number? Any other downside to this??

I tried this but it seems I am too unconventional or something, so after spending 10 minutes on a survey it would tell me I was not elegible based on my responses.

I am latin but watch no latin soap operas or listen to latin radio.
I am a mom but hardly buy for my son online.
I am a woman but I am not into shoes or jewerly
etc.

After trying for two months I surrendered and stopped.

That was my luck on the onlien surveys, I work at home selling baseball cards on my website (my name, you can figure it out) so I had a lot of extra time to do surveys, but it seemed a waste like good said.

The only person I knew who tried this said that it became tedious after a while and the money wasn't worth it.

I'm going with So Cool Gifts on that one, the pay-outs (that I've seen) are usually less than a dollar and if You think about it as time spent vs money made You're making about a buck for 10 minutes answering questions in some cases. That's $6/hour.... Not the best deal there :S

I think that there is lots of ways for stay at home moms to make the extra cash, but you just have to do some networking first. Then things will fall into place!
