About 8 years ago I began to take surveys online as a means to make a few dollars that I could call my own. Believe it or not, it turns out I actually really enjoy taking surveys. I feel like it’s the easiest possible money I can earn with the least amount of effort. I love the fact that I can sit in front of my T.V. while my husband watches shows that really don’t interest
There are literally TONS of Paid Survey Panels out there but if your looking for ones that will pay you actual cash you need to check out the list below. Taking surveys is quick and easy and you are under no obligation so you can take them only when you feel like it.
Pro Tip: If you want to make a substantial amount of extra money doing paid surveys, it is best to sign up with multiple survey sites so you’ll get the maximum amount of paid survey invitations in your email. I would recommend opening a separate email for registering to keep your survey invites separate from your regular email.
1. E-Poll Survey – (rated A+ with BBB) E-Poll is a paid survey site where members can earn points for taking surveys, creating polls, and referring friends. This site is great for teens 13 and up to earn a little side cash. The great thing I like about E-poll is, you will qualify for every survey you attempt, so no time is wasted. Points are redeemable for cash (Paypal), gift cards and prizes.
2. Global Test Market – An older and more established panel that pays up to $10 per survey!
3. Harris Poll Online – (rated A- with BBB) Owned by Nielsen, this survey company is a MUST DO! They’re known for sending out surveys, prepaid with CASH! Simply fill out the survey and mail it back in to get ANOTHER envelope with CASH and a survey! If you’re lucky you’ll also get invited into one of their high paying focus groups, which give around $50 for your time.
4. Ipsos i-Say – I-Say is a popular destination for millions of survey takers, because of its frequent invites. They pay an average of $1, but usually only take 10 minutes or less to complete PLUS many receive an invitation to a focus group, product test, or webcam survey, when you complete a regular survey.
5. VIP Voice – This one has been on FIRE lately with their Household Surveys! We’re hearing of another member being offered one every couple of days! Make sure you confirm your email and complete your profile when you join!
7. Pinecone Research – (rated #2 on Survey Police) Pays $3 Per Survey and sends Payments within 24 hours – Pinecone is notoriously popular with its 6 million members for its super fast payments within a day or so of completing each offer.
8. National Consumers Panel (NCP) – Membership comes with a FREE scanner.. scan your groceries – Earn Money. It’s that simple, and VERY popular! If you apply and don’t get accepted, try again at the beginning of the month the most spots are available!
