Are you looking to make a little extra money? Taking online surveys can be an easy way to earn some play money without ever leaving the house (or the couch for that matter). You won’t get rich off surveys, but you can make $5-$10 a month from some companies.
Want to get started earning? Here’s my list of top survey sites.
Top 6 Online Survey Companies
1. Pinecone Research
This is the best of the best in survey companies. The tricky part with Pinecone Research though is that they are selective and try to maintain an even mix of users. This means they won’t always be looking for your demographic. If you are denied just wait a few months and you may find the next time you try they are looking for ya.
2. Media Insiders
This is one program that isn’t so much about surveys. Media Insiders does send an occasional survey, but mostly you’ll earn by downloading their app on you mobile or tablet device. You can forget the app is their and you’ll earn $5 every month. You can earn up to $15 by putting the app on up to 3 devices.
3. Paid Viewpoints
This is one program that takes their job seriously. Paid Viewpoints are strict on one account per person so much that you have to verify your account by email and a phone number (don’t worry they won’t use it). You’ll also get $1.01 just for registering. Surveys can seem slow at times, but they are very good at paying and when they do come pay well. When you have $15 earned you can get it out through PayPal.
This is a unique program that is more about product testing than money. BzzAgent will send you campaigns to do that can have payment or just offer a free product. One cool part of the program is that you can link your Kroger (or Kroger affiliate store) card to the system. You’ll get special campaigns for in-store shopping and even coupons!
5. Opinion Outpost
Opinion Outpost has tons of surveys and a very low payout of $5 for Amazon gift cards or $10 for PayPal deposits. The only downside with this company is that you may find you don’t qualify for many of the surveys. Just keep opening them and seeing though…
6. Inbox Dollars
Earn money for checking your email for surveys. With Inbox Dollars you’ll get $5 just for registering, however it will take $30 to get the money out. They do have a number of offers, but it tends to take a good 4-6 months to get to the $30 payment.
