Making Money Taking Surveys

Nearly everyone knows you can get paid to take surveys online. There are dozens of sites for making money taking surveys. However, not every paid survey site is reputable, and some are more lucrative than others.

Selecting the right paid survey websites can make a big difference, especially since you won’t qualify for every survey you see. Paid online surveys have requirements that determine eligibility, usually based on demographic information and your personal habits, so you don’t want to waste time on a website that isn’t going to pan out.

Survey Junkie

Survey Junkie is a true blue and very much revered surveying site. They have more than 4,000,000 surveyors, which is clearly an exceptionally respectable size. They aim to open the window of correspondence amongst buyers and brands. There are a few approaches to reclaim rewards: money by means of PayPal, MileagePlus miles, Alawar diversions, Amazon focuses or iTunes. You can likewise exchange rewards for donations to the American Red Cross.


It may or may not be the best site for surveys. But the site is easy to use and your points show up right away, and they have a lot of choices for gift cards, as well as cash via Paypal. They also have “sales” where you can get certain gift cards for a slightly discounted points value at times. The other great thing about Swagbucks is that you can earn points in several different ways, including through online purchases, watching videos, and trying new products–the various methods to earn points can give you the chance to earn more even if the surveys aren’t always working out.

Pinecone Research


On the short list of really awesome survey sites, Pinecone Research occupies a high spot. This company isn’t perfect and there are some hassles involving payments (nothing illegitimate), but they are one of the best when it comes to privacy.

This company is by far the best survey panel out today. Members are rewarded for taking online surveys, testing products, participating in focus groups and more. Pinecone Research typically pays around $3.00 per survey. Pays cash via check. Open to US, CA, UK, and Germany


LifePoints was Global Test Market, this is a global survey panel open to members worldwide. I have heard many great reviews about this company. Members earn points for taking online surveys which are redeemable for cash, Amazon gift cards, and free merchandise. Open worldwide, ages 14+

Ipsos I-Say


Ipsos I-Say is one of the largest survey panels around. This company works with some of the best brands and leading companies. At Ipsos i-Say, members earn points for taking online surveys. You can trade in those points for cash ( via check or Paypal), gift cards, and free prizes.

American Consumer Opinion (ACOP)

American Consumer Opinions is another legitimate survey panel that works with many leading brands. All members earn points for surveys and even screeners. Points can be redeemed for cash (check or Paypal).

Vindale Research

Vindale isn’t just one of the oldest paid online survey companies around, but it also has some of the highest paying surveys. Typical surveys here are paid between $0.25 and $50. And you don’t have to wait to accumulate points or go through the tedious process of converting points to cash before payout as Vindale Research credits your bank or PayPal account with your earnings after every survey – no minimal withdrawal limits. Here, you can also earn from the company’s elaborate referral system as well as benefit from freebies where you get paid as much $75 for every product the survey company sends to you for review.  With Vindale, the monthly incomes are between $100 and $180.

Inbox Dollars

Inbox Dollars make it here because of their cash-only payment system as well as the relative ease of use. Unlike most other survey websites that maintain a point-based payment system for rewarding every successfully and completed survey, Inbox Dollars maintains a cash-only system where every payment is expressed in the form of dollars. They also maintain one of the most straightforward registration processes. You only have to fill such details as your name, age, race, and income level to get started. And they will start you off with a $5 welcome bonus. Users here make anywhere between $50 and $100 in a good month.

Harris Poll Online

Harris Poll Online is one of the oldest polls in the world and they have been conducting surveys for over 45 years. Includes completing online surveys and sweepstakes. Rewards are awarded as “HI Points.” Redeem HI Points as electronic gift cards, once you’ve accumulated enough points you may redeem them for a variety of great merchandise and sweepstakes entries. They do not offer cash awards.

Daily Rewards

Daily Rewards is a paid survey site operated by CotterWeb Enterprises which also runs Inbox Dollars US and Send Earnings. They have awarded over $65 million so far to members. Complete online surveys, watch videos, visit websites, referrals, and other tasks. You earn directly in cash and can request a payout (through PayPal) once you reach the minimum threshold amount of $30.


One main disadvantage of paid online surveys is that you can spend time answering pre-screening questions and end up not qualifying. Again, surveys alone won’t pay you a ton of money. To increase your chances of success, sign up for several and see which one truly gives you some value for your time.
