Making extra money doesn’t have to take a lot of extra time. In fact, there are ways to be compensated for doing something you probably do on a daily basis anyway — sharing your opinion. Here’s how you can make money for taking online surveys. Sign up on several sites at once (just get ‘er done!), and the money can really add up. You might take surveys on your purchasing preferences, likes and dislikes, kids’ stuff or household products.
SurveySavvy pays anywhere from a couple of bucks up to $30 or more for surveys, if you fit their demographics. Sign up, take surveys, and have them send you a check. You’ll get paid for referring friends, too.
2. VIP Voice
This one is a popular survey site that earns you points for each survey. These points can be used on gift cards, trips, or gadgets.
3. Survey Junkie
These surveys are usually pretty quick to do, and you’ll get points for every one you fill out. Once you hit 1,000 points, you can cash out for $10. Some surveys will get you up to 300 points, so it might not take you long to get there.
4. Pinecone Research
This website pays out cash (via PayPal) after each survey you complete — no waiting. There is also no minimum payout to request payment. You get $3 for each survey.
5. Point Club
These surveys earn you points for every one you take. But best of all, you’ll get $5 right away just for signing up. Can’t really beat free money, now can you? The points can be redeemed for gift cards to places like Amazon and Walmart, or cashed in for your favorite charity.
