    TBH, a lot of the stuff under 1k isn't worth it, but until you hit it, you just have to keep plugging away. I liked the Oscar Smiths, the Sentiment ones (when they're around), and the search results ones. They're not huge money, but they're better than nothing, and once you get into a good rhythm it'll be no time until you hit that milestone.

    I'd base my pre-1k/Top-tier/special case batch goals around $20. $20 would be an entirely normal whole day worth of survey taking and the like. If you are only on for half of the day, $10, etc...

    Edit: I'm not sure if you were talking about money goals or not?

    CS sentiments aren't worth the money? I forget how much I pulled in on those those 2 days, but I believe I got in 70 the first night and over $160 the second day.

    Yup, I went ahead and found the post.

    http://mturkforum.com/showthread.php?4933-Can-t-find-good-HITs-11-13&p=76029&viewfull=1#post76029

    1,400 for the second day. I started at around 5 AM.

    I made like $20 that one week after Thanksgiving from them.

    Another group worth doing at under 1k is as many of the CrowdSource HITs you are qualified for that they will let you do in a day. I used to do a ton of the Google Keyword Search and Find URL ranking. Never got a reject and always paid the next day.

    Oscar's are kind of a stretch. I think I did one. I just couldn't do it for the money.

    Try this if you are having trouble under 500 or 1k HITs:

    Set another TAB open to the HIT search.
    Select "that pay at least $" and put in $0.05
    Select "for which you are qualified"
    In the Sort By: drop down select "HIT Creation Date (newest first)"
    Then hit GO and see what you find.
    Set it to auto-refresh every 30 seconds or a minute or so.

    I won't do a batch unless it pays at least $0.05 or is ULTRA simple. I usually have that search window set at $0.15. Also try it with the Sort By: drop down set to HITs Available (Most First). This is how you can find the really big batches you are qualified for.

    I usually have several search windows open all refreshing themselves all the time with several variations of the above search. For you that one should get the HITs you need to get your numbers up (not necessarily a lot of money though.) Eventually, and in short time, you should be working to ensure that you are being paid at least $0.10 per minute or $6.00 per hour.

    Hope this helps.

    When does CS post the sentiments? I haven't seen them in months...
    I have a two-week break from work next week, so I guess I know what I'm doing. If I find them, that is.

    I second Cowfin's recommendation of redwood. The pay is low but unlike Oscar hits, they are super fast. Look for the "caption requirements" and "caption requirements review" hits. The first pays .02 to look at one picture and indicate if the requirement is met (for example, does this pic contain food) by clicking yes or no. That's it. The second one (the review) pays .01 and you just quality check the first hit done by other turkers.

    They had a tiny batch up this afternoon. I only got 3 in. About a month ago they had a batch of 14,000 that lasted forever and they ended up taking it down. Maybe once or twice a week there will be a batch of 1,500 or 2,000 up but they go pretty quick.

    they posted a ridiculous amount right before or right after Thanksgiving, it was like 14k but then they pulled them because they didn't realize people were going to work on them so fast (someone messaged them and this was the reply)

    If you live in the Silicon Valley, this one offers a $40 in person focus group opportunity.
