INSTAR’s primary goal, according to its website, is to enable mutually beneficial data exchange between individuals and organizations using advanced technologies within the Insights Network.
The primary goal may sound complicated, but they believe consumers participating in data exchange (for example, giving their opinions through surveys and sharing data) do not get enough out of it compared to the companies requesting your service.
Instars.com wants to introduce a platform that allows people to request info/data and share it without any third parties involved.
And they want to give the consumers complete control over the data exchanged.
Everybody is looking to find a way to make some extra cash, and because of this, there is a lot of earning opportunities to earn online.
But along with the many legit opportunities, there are some that are here to rob you of your time and effort, by having you do the work and scam you of the payment for your reward.
In this post, I will be taking a look ar Survey Voices, we will see if Survey Voices deliver on its promises.
About Survey Voices
Product Name: Survey Voices
Product Owner: Reward Zone USA LLC
Reward Zone is a company that acts as an intermediary, which does not offer surveys itself but offers you survey sites, it is more like an affiliate marketing site, whenever you join one of the surveys sites they offer they will get a commission.
What is Survey Voices
According to their website survey Voices strives to be a top paid survey aggregator. As part of the community, members get access to thoroughly vetted survey companies and market researchers.
You have the opportunity to voice your opinion and share your experiences through surveys and questionnaires. In exchange for your time and effort, you are PAID in cash and rewards.
How are you Paid?
Survey Voices is the middle man that put in touch with other survey sites and because of this, you are not paid by them, you will be paid by the respective survey company they’re linking you to. For example, if you choose to answer surveys provided by Survey Junkie you will be paid by Survey Junkie.
How Do You Join Survey Voices?
Joining Survey Voices is free and available to everyone. simply provide your e-mail address and take the qualifying questionnaire.
You will then be matched with the most relevant, highest paid surveys based on the information you provide. You must be 18+ to participate.
How much can you make at Survey Voices?
Again according to their web site
This depends on the surveys you take and the offers you claim. Some surveys are worth more than others.
If you dedicate 40 hours a week, making up to $3 an hour, you’re on your way to $300+ a month!
There are also other ways to earn, they offer a wide range variety of sweeps entries, samples, insane discounts and freebies, and in some cases special employment offers.
Earning $300 per month doing surveys seems like a stretch to me, first of all, from my experience doing surveys you will not be qualified for every survey, some days you will not get a qualifying survey so making $300 a month doing surveys 40hours a week sounds like a myth.
Is Survey Voices a Scam?
Survey Voices is not a scam, it does what it promised, that is to point you to survey sites, however, Some of the websites Survey Voices links to are scams.
It seems that no great care is taken to identify legit sites.
Spam Emails & Calls
Once you sign up with Survey Voices be prepared for telemarketers bombarding you with calls and e-mails, I think your information is sold to different companies.
BBB files indicate a Pattern of Complaints concerning the company’s marketing practices and fulfillment of services. Consumers are telling BBB about their experiences after participating in a survey/contest offered by Reward Zone USA LLC. A number of consumers allege that they were promised a prize, such as a $1000 gift card, if they completed the surveys/incentives the company provides. Many of these consumers allegedly followed the instructions that Rewards Zone USA LLC gave but are still unable to claim the reward. A number of consumers say they are inundated by pop-ups and emails from the company and experience difficulty in unsubscribing from the notifications.
Here is a few more complaint to BBB regarding Survey Voices and their responses to these complaints.

This company advertises on Facebook. They offer an incentive PS4 Pro worth $399 after the customer full fills a certain number of offers. Consumer did exactly as instructed and followed all offers and subscriptions. No confirmation or response emails or contact ever received after 7 business days. RewardZoneUSA is a scam. There is no contact information available other than an online submission. No answers or correspondence received after 3 requests.

if you want to make a little extra money and thinking of signing up for Survey Voices, I would suggest trying a survey site like Survey Junkie. This Way you would skip the middle man of survey voices and avoid being harassed by endless telemarketers and having your inbox loaded with junk mail.
