Taking paid surveys is an easy way to make some extra cash in the comfort of your own home (in your PJ’s if you want). There are a few bad seeds out there that make people weary of work at home opportunities, but we have personally tried several paid survey sites and have made some extra cash using them! A rule of thumb we have for making extra cash online is to (and this may seem like a given) never spend money to make money. Don’t be fooled by an “exclusive list” of survey sites or secret shopper companies. Those folks are selling snake oil my friends, and we’re not buying it.
You’ll want to use your own good judgement when seeking an extra income opportunity online. Luckily, we’ve taken some of the guesswork out of these paid survey sites. What you’ll find below are only sites that we have personally tested, and been rewarded from. We don’t want to lead anyone astray, so we are only recommending sites that we have tested. There may be a few other good ones out there, but again, these are the ones that we can personally vouch for.
The list will read as follows: Site name with link to sign up page, followed by the top reward options and the minimum payout level. With all of these sites, the reward for completed surveys will average between $1.00-$3.00.
Global Test Market – Cold hard cash – $50 cashout level.
MyView – Amazon and other gift cards, magazines, more – $15 cashout level.
MySurvey – Amazon gift cards, Paypal, other gift cards. $15 cashout level.
Springboard America Female Sign Up – Check in the mail! $50 cashout level.
Springboard America Male Sign Up – Check in the mail! $50 cashout level.
Valued Opinions – Gift cards from Macy’s iTunes, Visa & more. $20 cashout level.
Additional tip: E-mail addresses are free. We suggest creating one just for survey sites. Join as many of these sites as you want (we recommend them all!) and when you feel like having an extra income opportunity, login to your email and you’ll have several emails with survey opportunities!
