The Fastest-Paying Paid Survey Sites

If you’ve spent even a bit of time taking paid surveys, you know that getting paid can be a trying experience. On the one hand, you’ve got sites with high cash-out levels. On the other, you’ve got those that take weeks to process your rewards once you do reach the payment threshold.
