There are lots of paid survey sites out there. But when it comes to panels catering specifically to Latino Americans, Cada Cabeza is one of the few names that stand out.
In this review I am going to do some digging to find out if this is a good panel for Hispanics living in the US to earn some extra money with.
Cada Cabeza, owned originally by Garcia Research Associates Inc., is different from the usual survey companies out there. This survey panel has been designed exclusively with the aim of garnering the opinions of people of Latin origin residing in the United States.

Garcia Research Associates has worked to further the interests of the Latino community since the year 1990. The company was taken over by Knowledge Networks, which has promised to keep intact the commitment first promised towards Hispanic/Latino market research.
To this effect, the new owners have continued to operate with the same team of experts as well as the same levels of professional ethics. In fact, the entire team is composed of Latinos and maintains offices in the cities of Tijuana, Mexico and Burbank, CA.
I should also mention that in January 19, 2012, Knowledge Networks itself was acquired by the giant German market research institute, Gesellschaft für Konsumforschung (Society for Consumer Research), better known in the US as The GfK Group.
That said, for panelists of Cada Cabeza everything is as it was before, if not better, since now the panel is owned by the fourth largest market research organization in the world, after Nielsen Company, Kantar Group and Ipsos.

In addition to providing people with paid surveys, this panel also acts as a kind of internet community where American residents of Hispanic origin can socialize, exchange thoughts about survey panels, and of course, earn money by answering online surveys.
Knowledge Networks, Inc. (which still acts as the parent company) does not participate in the BBB business accreditation program. At the time of writing this review, the company is not rated either because:
BBB is currently updating its files on all businesses in the Greater Los Angeles area and pending that review, a BBB rating is unavailable.
I will however update this post once the site gets a rating from the Better Business Bureau.
Cada Cabeza Membership
To become a member, you need to be able to speak Spanish, must be 13 years of age and of course, be of Latino origin.
Becoming a member is quite simple as all you need to do is express your opinion and assimilate yourself in the Latino community of America, which is among the fastest growing ones in the country. You’ll be asked to choose a login ID and password followed by confirming the email ID you’ve provided.
After that, you must fill-up the online profile section as doing so gets you invitations to surveys where you can derive the maximum benefit/advantage.
As you complete surveys, you’ll be compensated with points. Most surveys on this site are worth around 100-200 points. However, the exact number will always be mentioned at the top of every survey/study you choose to answer.
You also stand to earn more points by way of referrals. Make note however that you must refer only other Latinos residing in the USA. In order to do so, you need to click on the link for inviting a friend (can be found in the control panel).
For you to earn 100 points, an individual referred by you needs to complete at least one survey. This survey could either be one that was dispatched to you via email or even any one among the ten profile surveys present in your control panel. However, in what seems to be a strange limitation, you are allowed to only invite 20 people per year.
You are paid by Cada Cabeza through checks. Once you have accumulated 1,000 points, the site will intimate you about the same while including instructions on redeeming the check, which will have a value of $20.
To earn these 1,000 points and receive the corresponding $20 check, you need to respond to surveys, complete your initial surveys found in the control panel, and refer some of your friends.
At the same time, the friend you referred should complete his/her first survey. Again, this could either be the one that was sent to him/her via email or available on his/her profile.
Redeeming the accumulated points can be accomplished through the control panel. Once you successfully redeem those points, a check will be mailed to the address you provided during the sign-up process. The waiting period for the check to arrive is approximately around 2-4 weeks.
Is Cada Cabeza Worth it?
I am not Hispanic, so I wasn’t able to join the site. However, I have done my fair share of research and digging about this panel that I think I can say with confident that as far as legitimacy goes, Cada Cabeza is as legit as it gets.
But unfortunately, the amount of surveys this site offers is just too few that I think your time is better spent on other panels where you can make a bit more money.
