Is ClixSense Legit-An Honest Inside Look

get paid for taking surveys, test products and get paid

I have been reading reviews on ClixSense. I am still left with the question is ClixSense legit or is ClixSense a scam? The reason I say this is that they say they have proof of payment.

However, the proof of payment was from years ago. Not recently. In one review, the payout they were showing was for a few cents, not dollars. We all know how time-consuming surveys are.

This is one reason I do not do this type of program. But I want to see if ClixSense is any different from the others. Will I spend HOURS performing task and not even make $10.00?

ClixSense is legit. However, I would advise you to keep reading so that you know what you may be getting in to if you decide to join.

In order to get paid you have to have a minimum of $10.00 in your account.

ClixSense Payout

How To Earn Money

In order to earn money you can play games, take surveys, and of course promote ClixSense. They also have cash offers which is where you will get paid to test products.

It seems to be like other sites and have the same task to complete in order to get paid. I did notice though that they had surveys that paid more than typical sites. The pay ranged from $0.13 to $2.00.

I will go through each item and test them, giving you a description of what is entailed as well as the pay rate if it is available to me.

Paid Surveys

So since surveys are one of my pet peeves, I am going to start there. Let’s see how long the process takes. My very first survey took almost an hour.

I had to fill out information before getting started though and I will not count that one. I did make $1.25 for taking the survey.

My second one said it will only take 10 minutes. However, it started with “does anyone in your household suffer from” and it had a list of different health issues.

Having experience with this I automatically clicked none of the above. I will explain why, later on. I of course no longer qualified for that survey.

From that point on it was the snowball effect. I was given one that asked what my annual household income was before taxes, when I clicked my answer and I of course got the “we’re sorry, you do not qualify”.

I clicked on another survey to try, I clicked on my annual household income and made it to the next page. I was rejected from this one due to the fact my business was not in the legal field. What the heck?

So basically the surveys you are given are just like the rest of the sites. I did make a buck but it was definitely not worth it and I will not be taking anymore.

ClixSense Did Not Qualify BoxOne thing that caught my eye when the box popped up saying that I wasn’t qualified for the survey was that it said my information was discarded.

What this says to me is that the reason I am not qualifying for additional surveys is that they are not using my information to base the surveys on.


If they kept my information, they would know to NOT give me surveys that I will not qualify for. I am not a rocket scientist, but even this dummy knows that.

Cash Offers

Cash offers sounds like a good way to go. Get paid to test products? Who wouldn’t want to do that, right? Let’s see what goodies we will find here. Anything has to be better from the surveys.

They have well-known companies like Victoria Secret, Bose, Apple, and even Disney Cruise. The pay ranges from $0.01 to $1.67.

For the offers you have to sign up with valid information. Now this is where you better make room in your email. You are only getting paid for signing up ONE time.

By clicking the “I agree to receive” means that you will get emails from this company on a daily basis. Keep that in mind if you decide to give ClixSense a try.

I need to warn you before you get all excited about the offers you will see. In the process you will still need to complete a survey.

When you answer “yes” to certain questions you then get redirected to a corresponding service. Here is an example. If you click yes when asked if you would like to refinance your home, you will be redirected to a questioner based on mortgage refinance.

I started out with Yankee Candle and ended up with a credit check service. I had been at it almost an hour and still had not completed it.

Game Time

There are a ton of games that you can choose from as well as many types. There are educational, skill, action. Sports arcade etc.

I am sure there should be something to suit everyone as many as there are to choose from. Depending on the game, I may not do very well using my laptop. But we shall see.

I seem to have some bad news when it comes to the games. You can not earn money from playing the flash games. If you play the ClixGrid games you will need to be LUCKY in order to get paid for playing.

After 2 hours of playing a game and not receiving any type of message or earning, I went on a search to find how to earn money while playing games.

I went to the “chat” forum which is where I discovered my answer. It was’t really a chat room, more like a search for your question and read the response that it received.

So now my question is, how can they advertise that you can earn money by playing games, if the fact is, that you can not earn money from playing them.

This to me is a scam and they should not be allowed to advertise “earn money by playing games”, just because a couple of people have been “lucky” at the game and actually won money. This was a BIG let down.

The Moral Of This Story

I honestly don’t see how others are making money through ClixSense. I suppose that since some members have been there for a few years, maybe they now have a system that helps to earn.

By taking the surveys and doing cash offers, you will immediately start getting emails as well as telephone calls. This is exactly why I clicked none of the above when asked if anyone in my household suffered any of the medical conditions that were listed.

My phone has been ringing off of the hook. I suppose that if YOU, were to take the surveys, you may not have the issue that I did with qualifying.

I knew what would happen if I had clicked on the medical condition that I or my family might have, that I would receive numerous calls and emails about it.

I don’t want that, but I still have companies calling me from the information I had entered in the many surveys and offers that I did try to complete.

I earned $2.75 for a total of 7 hours or trying ClixSense out. Not counting the time spent with the ones that I didn’t even qualify for.

Was not worth it, nor would I recommend it.

Put Your Time Into Something More Rewarding

For the amount of time I put into trying to earn some money with ClixSense, I could have written another post for my website.

If you are just trying to find something to keep you busy and aren’t really needing the money, then ClixSense might be for you.

If you are looking for a source of real income, then I would not recommend it. I would recommend that you use your time to create your own online business.

You will still be able to work from home, be your own boss, set your own hours and create your business around YOUR passion. Will you make money instantly? No, but if you put time into it, will make you A LOT more than taking surveys.

Your time will be invested in to something that is yours. You have the chance to make a living from your own business and not someone else’s.

It takes time to create a successful business. But with the training, tools and support you could be earning in as little as 6 months or fewer. Depending on you.

You came upon this post because you wanted information about ClixSense therefore you probably have time that you can use in order to build your online business.

You don’t need any skills or special abilities. All you need is a little time and commitment. Everything else will be there to help you along. Oh, and the chat center is a REAL LIVE chat center. You get the help when you need it.

You can make better money without taking surveys

I am a family oriented mother and love being involved with my little ones. My husband is the best guy a girl could ask for. I love helping others which is why I created this site. I know what it is like to NEED to work and earn an income, but not be able to do it outside the home. I am now able to help others find work they can do from home. And I love it.


  1. I recently signed up for a Survey site like ClixSense, but the site is called Appcoiner. Its promised to pay a lot of bugs for anyone who would volunteer to participate in its surveys, Don’t really know why I signed up because I never participated, maybe that was because I was stranded on building and thriving online. I was lucky enough to find Wealthy Affiliate in time, it led me to forget about Appcoiner.
    Thank you for the advice
    Did you ever come across Appcoiner? if you have any advice on that will really appreciate.

    • Thank you for stopping in to read my post on ClixSense.
      I have not heard of Appcoiner but I will definitely check into it for you> I may even do a review as well.
      Stop back in periodically to check for new post.
      As for Wealthy Affiliate, I am really glad you found it. There isn’t another platform that would come close to what they have to offer.
      Following the training has helped so many members become successful. There is even a 21 yr old that is very successful.

  2. Thanks for the article! I haven’t even heard of Clixsense but if I do ever come across it, I will know that it’s a waste of time and I shouldn’t try! haha, thanks for the information!

    • Thank you and I am glad you have this post to be of help to you.
      I love helping others to stay away from sites that don’t pay you for the time they want you to put in.
      There are so many of sites like this out there.
      If I ever find one that you can actually earn decent money from, then I will definitely write a post on it. So keep checking back.

  3. Awesome article, I too have tried a couple of different survey sites like always I came away with the same result you show here. I like your solution! I had rather put the time into something that will eventually bring in money and have a steady flow of income.
    Thanks a lot for the great advice!

    • I am glad you enjoyed my post. Thank you for the time you have taken to read.
      Not to many of us are willing to waste precious hours and only make a couple of dollars in doing so.
      I hope you have found your own solution or are thinking about trying the solution I listed.
      Here is a link just in case you might need it.
      It is the best solution I have found. https://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/a_aid/c5a3c84a

  4. I tried Clixsense 3 years age and there was one reason I quit. It wasn’t that I didn’t get paid or anything but the fact that I was working hours per day and earning around $10, and after weeks I thought it was a complete joke. I want to make the big dollars and Clixsense wasn’t going to do that for me. Like you, I found a better alternative. Great review!

    • Thank you for taking the time to read my review.
      I have come to the conclusion that any site that deals with surveys is a waste of time.
      I have yet to participate in ANY that actually allow you to make decent money working from home.
      The time that is put into them is definitely more than what the average pay is per survey.
      I hope the better opportunity is working out for you.
      If not please feel free to try https://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/a_aid/c5a3c84a
      I am sure you will appreciate it more. No surveys there to take : )

  5. Hi and thank you for this post.
    I have not heard of Clixsense before so thank you for bringing it to my attention.
    I may have check it out just so I can see how these sites really work. Sites like this are everywhere yet everyone says there is no money in them.
    Many thanks

    • Thank you Jennifer. I am glad you enjoyed hearing about ClixSense. If you plan on checking it out please do come back and let us know what you think. If you haven’t had experience with these type of sites before, they are very time consuming and don’t pay very well.
      I really hope that what I said in this post will stay fresh in your micd so that you know what you will be getting into.
      Wishing you the best in all you do

  6. Thanks for the article, very interesting read. I’ve heard about these survey sites and the reviews are always the same – they’re not worth the time. I find it interesting these kind of companies make it so difficult for people to make any kind of money, surely it would be in their advantage to be kinder to people who put time and effort in them as this way they’d get valuable survey responses and reviews etc. I’ve never given them ago and never will, I totally agree with you there are much better ways of earning additional income.

    • Thank you very much for taking the time to read my post on ClixSense. We have the same thoughts on sites like this. I would rather put my time and effort into something that will later prove to be worth it.
      This is why I take time to review programs so that you don’t have to worry about falling into the scams or waisting your time on surveys.
      Keep checking back, as I will be posting about other programs as well. I will be sure to let you know what I find.
      Wishing you the best in all you do

  7. That was a great article! Lots of really good points! Buyer beware! These sites are all alike. I don’t even bother anymore. They take too long and not enough pay, let alone the fact that they are tedious. Really appreciate you letting us know what ClixSense is about.

    • I am glad you found this helpful Tina.
      I have yet to come across any “survey” site that actually paid enough to make it worth the time you put into them. Most of them don’t even have surveys that you “qualify” for. i am sure I am not alone when I say, I hate waisting my time.
      If you are looking to work from home and want to build your own online business, please feel free to check out Wealthy Affiliate. It is the best training platform and the time you put into it will be for your own business. It is NOT a get rich quick program, but with the training and time you put into it, it CAN be a successful business that you own.
