So you’re interested in taking surveys and basically giving your opinions in return for cash.
Well, I have you covered as in the next 5 minutes I will be going through 10 established survey sites that pay and if you’re interested in making money online, could be worth checking out.
This list is going to contain survey sites that I have used and recommend.
There aren’t any special requirements for these and chances are you will eligible to join up to them if they are what you’re looking for
Now quickly before I get started let me just point out that most of these sites besides surveys offer other ways for you to earn but won’t make you lots of money.
Swagbucks is one of the biggest survey/reward sites out there and there are many reasons why that is. The notable one is that since launch they have paid out over 200’000’000 dollars in rewards, that’s huge especially when compared to industry competitors.
It’s safe to say Swagbucks is a good choice if you are new and offers ways to make money through surveys, doing offers, watching videos, shopping online, playing games, browsing the web and more.
This is the first site that got me interested in surveys a few years ago and while I wasn’t making massive amounts it was a nice earner.
They pay out once you have accumulated a balance of $2 and have reward options such as Starbucks, Walmart, PayPal, Amazon, and Target
Next up is another one I rate highly for those interested in surveys. The main thing that draws people to Prizerebel is the instant payouts they offer.
They pay out via PayPal, Amazon, Target and more within 15 minutes of a request. You will need $2 in order to withdraw though.
One of the complaints you will find with survey sites is to do with payouts, and while you won’t make a lot this one as an efficient system in place
Along with this PrizeRebel which was launched 12 years ago offers again multiple ways for you to earn which include the likes of Surveys, Offers and Watching Videos.
You probably might not have heard of this site but this is another one I recommend especially if you’re looking to make a quick few bucks.
They offer ways to make money such as surveys, offers and watching videos. The highlight with this one is the payment system as they pay instantly once you have accumulated $1.
There are various surveys on offer paying between $0.30 and $3. They also give you a $0.20 free credit if you are new to the panel.
MyPoints is another survey site which is similar and also owned by the same company as Swagbucks
They are a US-based panel that was founded in 2004 however support multiple countries. They pay you to not only do surveys but also print off coupons and search the web.
MySurvey (UPDATE: Now MYPoints)
MySurvey is a US-based survey panel that also supports other countries. They give you the opportunity to earn rewards when you take part in various different research studies. These consist of Surveys, Focus Groups, Product Testing and more
For every activity, you complete you will earn cash that can later be used to withdraw for either cash in PayPal or gift cards in retailers such as Amazon, Target and others.
Inbox Dollars is another highly regarded reward site that has a wide range of opportunities available to you and has been around for nearly 20 years.
You can get paid to play games, take surveys, read emails, do offers, watch videos, refer others and more. They also offer a $5 sign up bonus if you are new.
As soon as you have reached a balance of $30 you can then withdraw your earnings for cash in the form of Cheque or Visa Card.
Vindale Research is one of the survey sites I used to use it a lot back a few years ago mainly because they have a robust system in place and earning extra cash is made easy.
One of the stand out features along with the surveys is the fact they pay out $5 per referral you invite, which means there’s a lot of earning potential if you can get many sign-ups.
Going back to surveys on the site and they pay up to $50 a survey and pay out twice a month via PayPal/Cheque once you have hit $50.
Harris Poll Online
Harris Poll Online is a popular survey panel among survey takers online that has managed by a company that has been around for nearly 50 years.
The main opportunity is doing surveys and you can expect to receive up to 5 every month and each one roughly will take you 5 minutes.
Once you have enough you have earned 1250 points ($10) from surveys you can request a gift card from various different retailers.
YouGov is slightly different from the other survey sites on this list as they take a more political side and many of there surveys are based around politics.
They are a UK based panel with over 4 million members registered ever since founding back in 2000. They do also have a panel open for US members as well.
You can get paid once you hit $15 in the US and £50 in the UK. A Cheque is the only payout option here.
Survey Junkie is the last one I will be talking about today and they are another big survey site out there at the moment who have over 4 million members registered to the site.
They are an established panel and are well known for being positively talked about panel.
The only issue is that unlike other survey panels there are no other ways to earn, just through surveys which limits your earning potential
You can get paid via PayPal or through various gift cards once you have made $10. These rewards are paid out instantly
In summary, surveys can be a good route for those looking to make some extra cash and the above sites I listed offer those opportunities.
As long as you see it only as a bit of spare change and not a job replacement you will be fine.
