I’m always looking out for real money making opportunities online, especially if it means I can make money on my mobile phone whilst I’m on the go.
I’ve been reviewing a lot of survey sites lately and most turn out to be overly time-consuming and vastly underpaid, but will Darwin’s Data be any different?
In this review we’ll be asking if Darwin’s Data is a scam you should forget about or a legitimate site worth pouring your time and effort into.
If you’ve had any experience with Darwin’s Data we’d love to hear from you! Share your own review in the discussion below! 🙂
What is Darwin’s Data exactly?
Darwin’s Data claims to be an online survey site that pays you $25 in digital cards for giving your opinions in an hour long survey.
They say they’ll show you a video describing a legal dispute and ask you what you think.
The homepage gives you a 3 step process to getting started:
Darwin’s Data review
To find out if this site adds up to the claims they make, let’s dive in and see what happens after I sign up and get in the members area.
Taking my first look at DarwinsData.com didn’t leave me with a great first impression…
The site is very basic, using stock images and a simple layout I’m sure I’ve seen somewhere else before.
Clicking on the ‘How It Works‘ tab opens up a slideshow explaining the three step process to getting paid: register, take surveys and receive your $25 Tango card. Seems pretty simple so far…
To get started I clicked on the ‘Request an Invite‘ menu option and was presented with a pretty standard form to fill out.
Their site does state you have to be a citizen of the United States and at least 18 years of age to be eligible to take their surveys and you must have a driving license or be a registered voter.
The form took me just a minute or so and I got this message:
They also sent me an automatic email confirming they’ve received my request for an invite.
After that I waited for a few days… A couple of weeks… It’s now been over a month since I started this review but still nothing.
I think a month is ample time for them to review the limited data they ask for and approve or disprove your application. Very disappointing to say the least!
How much money can you make realistically?
I guess to try and give you the best answer possible I’m going to have to look at Darwin Data reviews on sites like SurveyPolice.
Seriously not much.
Tons of users say after completing their first survey they haven’t received another survey in over 12 months. That’s $25 per year.
Think Darwin’s Data is the real money maker you’ve been looking for? Think again.
What I like about Darwin’s Data
- Free sign up
- It’s unique in the sense it’s asking about legal disputes
- Longer surveys that pay more
What I don’t like so much…
- Long waiting times to be accepted (if ever)
- Severe lack of surveys
- They only pay you in Tango gift cards
- Surveys are low paying and very time-consuming
Is Darwin’s Data right for you?
I honestly don’t think they’re a scam, but I can’t recommend them as a legit online opportunity either. It turns out Darwin’s Data is just like 99% of online survey sites out there – more ‘faff’ than results and a waste of your time.
A better option
While there’s still tons of paid survey sites around, most of them pay you far less than the minimum wage to hand over your private information, are labour intensive and time-consuming with high disqualification rates and that’s if you’re lucky enough to get a survey invite.
After waiting a month I still can’t even get accepted – sites like these are on the decline with companies looking to social media to get the feedback they’re looking for.
This is the exact reason I quit wasting my time with silly survey sites and started my own legit online business.
