Following up on our last post about completing surveys for money– If you’re interested in paid surveys, here are five of the best survey money making sites to get you started.
1- Harris Polls
Earn points that you can trade in for gift cards and prizes. You also get a sweepstakes entry for each survey you complete. (The sweepstakes prize is cash) Gift card options include Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Groupon, Chilis, Applebees, Starbucks, and others. The surveys are in-depth but fun- as an example, you might need to read an ad about an upcoming product or service and answer questions about whether you’d buy it and what you think of the ad. Harris Poll Online typically sends 3-4 survey invites a month.
2- Survey Savvy
Earn points, which you turn in for cash paid directly into your Paypal account or for gift cards and prizes. Survey Savvy also has a sweepstakes component, giving you another way to score some extra cash. The surveys are easy to fill out, but there isn’t always one available. This is a good one to have in your stable of survey opps, but don’t rely on it for regular income.
This paid survey company will inundate your inbox with survey offers, which makes it easy to cash out quickly as long as you grab the surveys as soon as they appear. Surveys fill up fast, so if you notice an offer dated a few hours ago, you probably don’t want to waste time because it’s likely to be over already. Check every few hours or once a day and complete the most recent survey offers to build up your points and get a Paypal payout or reward as soon as possible.
This survey company pays cash via Paypal. The amount you’ve earned is displayed on the site and you can cash out after you’ve made $15- so it’s easy to keep track. You’ll get notified about new surveys via email. Paid Viewpoint has a “Trait System” that tracks your reliability (consistently reporting the same demographic information, for example) and the higher your trait score, the more you can make.
Cash Crate features surveys as well as other offers- such as accepting free product samples or watching videos- in exchange for cash. You get the money via Paypal and there is a $20 payout threshold. Lots of surveys are listed on the site itself- so you can get started right away without having to wait for an email alert.
