The main thing to remember is that taking surveys sometimes may take up a lot of time and the payout is not something that will cover all your living expenses. For example, the extra earnings can function as a way to make your Bali vacation come true much sooner . Feel free to add your thoughts to this!

As a side suggestion, if you have a Smartphone or looking into getting one: you can take surveys on it at your convenience, anywhere.
