Clixsense The Review: Scam or Legit? [The Housewife Opinion!]

Here we are, once again, having a look at another popular program that is now available online and that has generated quite a bit of interest from a lot of people.

Why? Well, number 1 and certainly the most popular reason: it is FREE to join, yes totally, completely, utterly Free and we all know when something is Free people just love it. So here I am analysing the system and sharing with you my thoughts about it: Clixsense the Review. Let’s see if it is truly Free and mostly, what can you make with it.

So Clixsense offers people the opportunity to earn money from home simply by clicking on different ads, completing surveys and watching some videos online. You click…you get paid? But can this be that simple, or better, where is the catch? If there is one…

Clixsense explained

To understand Clixsense one can simply say that with the system, you are getting paid for the service of accomplishing certain tasks.

It is as simple as that.

Maybe you can watch some videos, maybe you can fill up some surveys, (I am sure a lot of you out there, – me included – have done that at least once before), maybe you will test some products; it doesn’t matter what you choose to do, you will get paid a certain reward for doing it.

Clixsense has partnered with literally hundreds of different companies so the opportunity to do surveys, or watch a video or trying products is never lacking, on the contrary, all you got to do is pick one since the market place is truly big.

The idea per se is nothing new, there are many other websites that offer very similar rewards for providing a specific service, yet I have to say Clixsense is pretty good and I like the fact there is plenty to choose from.

Making Money Doing What?

Clixsense gives you the opportunity to earn some money in different ways:

  • You can participate in Online Paid Surveys

This is quite self-explanatory, Clixsense will send you a survey that is fitting your profile, and for which you need to qualify, and once approved, you will fill it up, complete it and then get rewarded. (The qualifying part sometimes can be a little frustrating, but don’t give up, remember it’s free)

Here is a Screenshot of some of the surveys I was given

As you can see they are paying quite well when compared to other surveys; the average reward goes between 0,36.00 $ up to 5.00$ which can be considered a good pay when it comes to surveys.

Now if you notice, some of my surveys are actually in the Spanish language as well, but truthfully the system is available everywhere in the world and it comes in different languages, English being the main one.

How long will it take to complete a survey?

Not too long; on my list, they vary between 3 to 25 minutes and the time doesn’t necessarily mean that the longest it will take the better I will be paid, some of the 5.00$ rewards  that are on the surveys  require around 15 minutes of your time and when you look at it like that 15 minutes for 5.00 $ is not bad at all.

How can you cash your little reward?

That’s fairly easy, once you reached a minimum of 10.00$ you can cash the payment however be aware there are certain surveys that do require a wait of 30 days before you will be able to get paid.

Unfortunately, they don’t use Paypal, but there are three different ways to receive Payments, as it is shown the picture below

Once you are inside of your Dashboard you will also find on the right-hand side of the screen what is called a

  • Daily Checklist Bonus

This is another way to make money and also make sure you are being active on the platform All you have to do is make sure you complete your daily tasks and by doing so you’ll be able to earn a bonus on top of what you’ve earned on the day.

As you can see from the screenshot your Daily Tasks are:

  • Complete at least 10 Tasks or,
  • Complete at least 2 surveys or Offers or,
  • Complete at least 5 Figure Eight Tasks and at least 1 survey or offer

There is as well an Extra Activity Bonus if you manage to complete your daily tasks for 3 days in a row and you will be receiving some extra rewards

  • Cash Offers

If you want to earn some extra cash another way of doing it is by trying new products, downloading new apps that you can test, signing up for specific websites and even watch videos.

If you have a close look at the Screenshot, in this case, the reward is really small, it goes between 0.30$ – 0.35$ as an average and the only one that seems decent is the KIWI one for 5.00$ but there is a little catch here…you actually need to book a flight. So, unless you are planning to travel somewhere it is not an option I would take.

  • Figure Eight Tasks

In this case, what you have to do to earn cash is complete very simple tasks. The job paying rate is really tiny tiny….to start with, and you will have to register with Figure Eight in order to access the different tasks.

The Affiliate program of Clixsense

Besides the extra cash that you can earn with Clixsense by completing the surveys and other tasks, the platform rewards you as well for every referral you bring to the system. You can actually earn between 0.10 $ to 0.30$ for every person you refer that then becomes an active member of the platform and once your referrals earn their first $5.00 (excluding commissions and bonuses) you are also rewarded an extra $2.00 bonus!

In the Affiliate Program there is also a payment done for Activity Commissions which means for every approved Survey, Offer or Task your referrals complete you earn a  20% commission of what they earn.

I know we are talking a few dollars and sometimes even less. But I guess if you are at home and have some spare time, you can definitely put together some extra cash between a 5.00 $ here and a 2.00$ there…little by little you will accumulate some cash for sure.

Top-tier Countries

Clixsense has a Top Tier Country System in place that will reward 0.30 $ for every referral that you bring to the platform that comes from one of these countries:

Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States.

The rest of the referrals will be rewarded a 0.10$.

(I am not sure I agree with this part because it appears to me to be a little discriminatory…)

To prevent abuse, the signup commissions are not credited instantly. Instead, these commissions are paid whenever certain conditions have been met but not earlier than 10 days after the signup date. These conditions include, but are not limited to, performing at least 3 actions on 3 distinct (different) days. Clixsense does not actually tell you which actions to prevent any kind of fraud.

Is Clixsense for you?

The idea of making some extra cash online is appealing to anyone; now if you are joining Clixsense with the hope of making a full income from it, then I wouldn’t; the rewards are too little to be able to accumulate a substantial amount unless you are doing it 24/7, (but I doubt that).

On the other hand, if you are looking to make some extra cash, if you are a mom that wants some extra money while staying at home, if you are a student and need (always do) cash for your spare time, then, by all means, sign up, it’s free and you will get the rewards.

If you are looking to Clixsense as a way to make a full income online then maybe I will suggest something different that I have followed and has allowed me to get where I am today

We all have different goals in life and different dreams we want to follow; Clixsense might not make you rich but at the end of the day it will give you some extra cash and you will not have to spend anything to get it. Just your time.

If you want to Sign Up with Clixsense it’s really easy, all you have to do is fill up your details, wait for an email (it comes straight away) to confirm your email address and activate the account; go on the Clixsense site with your login details and complete your profile.

After that, you are ready to go!

Legit or Scam?

Well, after all this, I can say Clixsense it is actually a Legit offer and a legit way to make some extra cash online.

I have, in the past, signed up with different surveys online to make some money; not all of them pay that good and most of them when you are doing surveys can be really frustrating.

Is Clixsense any different? I have to say there are a lot of opportunities when it comes to surveys so plenty to choose from and you are bound to find something that will fit your interests.

Plus being Free, there is nothing to lose and on top of it, it is actually quite easy to recommend, especially if you have any friends that want to make some money online but are not ready to spend anything.

Will you be rich? NO; for as much as I would love to say yes, you need some other more profitable ways to be able to reach financial independence doing it online and filling surveys it might not be the one.

Will you make money? Definitely and that’s why I think it is a brilliant idea for students or even moms that have a few hours to spare but not more than that.

Are you looking for alternative ways to earn your money online?

This is what I do!

So I am going to leave you and hopefully I have helped you clear your mind and you have an idea of what Clixsense is and if you want to invest any of your time doing it.

Being Free it is quite tempting, for me and for what I want for my future and the financial freedom I aim to achieve, Clixsense is a little too slow and too little rewarded. I guess it would be something I might suggest to my son rather than me doing it full time.

If you have any questions about Clixsense or Wealthy Affiliate or anything that comes to your mind, just drop me an email I am always ready to help…if I can!

  1. Good informatioon Barbara. I have seen alot of clixsense ads online but never had the time to look in to and find out what they were about. Thanks for the walk through. Good luck on your journey. I’ll be following you.

  2. I, too had joined as a member to some surveying websites. Others would require specific demographics such as nationality before you become a member. Some would even go to the extent of give you tasks – easy but numerous. I agree that most of them pays a little and it’s not guaranteed that there is an available survey for you in a day. Again, they probably base it in demographics. I have seen sites like this who would ask you to watch videos, comment in something or give feedback on newly built websites. Some are legit, and well some are just pure scams.

    However, there are ways to find out if you’re being fooled by these sites. If its misleading you into thinking you will earn thousand of dollars in a day then stay away from it. The next thing they would do is to offer a package for you to buy. Package would contain assurance that you’ll get a lot tasks in a day. And we all know, the more task, the higher earning you’ll get. After a month, the site would shut down taking with them your hard earned money. 

    Legit or not, it gives a small pay. Good thing you have reviewed clix sense and removed any doubt about its legitimacy. Still, I agree with you on Affiliate Marketing. It’s more stable and you can really earn big if you put time and effort on it. Thanks for this article!

  3. Heloo Barbara. Thanks for posting and honesty. I did not know anything about Clixsense. It looks good if you want to make some quick money. I would be tempted to try, as a retiree. Okay, my way is on WA but some quick money would not hurt me. You think if I spend an hour or two a day, she gets it? thank you

    best regards


    1. Hi Carmen, to be co.pletly honest to make some decent earnings you might have to spend  more than a couple of hours a day. But if you have the time and enjoy doing it I guess go for it…until your Wealthy Affiliate takes off completely.  That’s where you will find your true income.

  4. Hi there!
    Ok thank you for the review. I heard about ClixSense before. Today I came to know all of it. you have reviewed the site nicely. The survey system of clixsense is quite reliable I think that you have shown here though the amount is low. But if it is a legit site according to you, then this price should not be a matter of tension I think for a beginner like me. Just to start something to earn. Then one can switch over to others. Getting upto $5 for a legit 15 minutes is quiet good I think. ok I can work here for sometimes. Thank you again for the review.

  5. Hi Barbara, 

    Thank you for ur honest review.I have seen many websites where they promote too much rather than giving honest reviews.I like that U give the audience a clear vision that it is not for making huge money but for some extra money.I like the option of affiliate marketing here where one can easily earn money.The process of reward and making cash is very much interesting because it is a matter of worry for some people.Last of all the only thing I do not like that it pays more in some countries rather than in other countries.
