Hi Pal, today I’m going to show you how to make some extra money with survey sites.
Are you a home mom or dad looking for a side hustle while watching the kids? Maybe you want to make extra money besides your daily job.
Whatever your reason, survey sites are an excellent way to earn extra money whenever you have free time.
In my early online days, I try all the sort of things to make some extra money online. Survey sites were one of them.
I don’t do it regularly anymore because I get bored to fill out forms, but it’s an easy work, and you might enjoy. I calculate the average rate is US$8 per hour. Better than watching Netflix where you make zero$. Plus you learn about interesting products.
From a financial point of view, let’s assume you have 14 hours spare every week (2 hours per day before going to sleep), in one month you can make US$448. No bad, isn’t it?
If you invest every month these earnings for 20 years at 7% yearly return rate, you’ll end up with a whopping US$220.000. Does it sound good? Carry on reading.
I tested over 50 different survey sites but most were scams. There was a lot of time and energy wasted in the beginning to search for the best operators, but once I narrow down the top sites in this industry, money rolled in.
Pal, to make your life easier, I’m going to list you my 8 favorite sites which I used, and another 12 popular options.
I recommend you sign up for 6 survey sites at least. And that’s because each survey site is only going to be able to match you up with 1 or 2 surveys a month.

I like SwagBucks. It’s easy to use, and they pay you either in cash or gift cards. You can make money by watching videos, shopping online and taking product’s survey.
They pay in time, with PayPal if cash or gift cards where you can redeem in popular websites like Amazon. Plus, they give you $5 just for signing up.
I usually get around 10 surveys per month with this provider. Most surveys last around ten minutes, but time to time deeper surveys come along.
You get paid with PayPal or Amazon gift card. You can also donate to charities if you feel generous. The more you give, the more you get.
Vindale Research is one of my favorite survey sites, because of the good payout for each survey. Expect to get around US$15, but some surveys which shell out up to the magical US$100 mark.
You can choose the survey you want to take part of, and select upon potential earning and duration. I’m an analytic person, and I love to know how much I’m going to make before starting any work.
4. Point Club
Recently the website went for a redesign and now look, feel and work better than ever. You can expect to get between US$1-10 for each survey, while some product and trial offers pay as much as US$20.
You get US$5 when signing up. Get started and have fun.
This company is reliable, and you can make US$10-15 per day by taking simple surveys. It’s easy to qualify, so not much waste of time.
One point I would like to stress; don’t rush your survey because you might get banned from the platform. Some of my friends had this problem. So, take your time and read the questions.
There are two ways to take part in surveys;
- by email; you get a link in your email box that takes you directly to the survey
- on the platform; You sign in and click “Take a Survey” button.
If you are going to take Surveys daily and spend hours on it, this is the website for you. They reward loyal people, so the more surveys you do, the more you get. Simple.
The only downside is they don’t pay you in cash, only rewards. The choice is yours.
This site is fun. Perfect for the bored mom and dad staying at home. Upon joining this company, you are going to receive physical products to test. Coll! And you can keep the items besides getting paid for your surveys.
I love surprises, and you?
This company has been around for more than 20 years. I still take part on some survey time to time. They are straightforward and take only 10 minutes.
They pay out in cash and gifts, but I warn you some time the payment take a longer time than other survey sites.
