Legitimate Paid Surveys and Rewarding Websites Really Do Exist
Trusted Paid Survey and Reward Websites
Finding legitimate paid surveys and rewarding websites isn't always an easy task. Responding to these is one of the quickest and best ways for you to earn extra cash online. I enjoy scouring the internet for new methods to make money online and have found some of the best places for you to start.
Many sites offer points which can be exchanged toward prizes. Others offer cash. In exchange, you often have to answer a few short questions about products. Occasionally, they may not pay enough to be worth your time. Always, outweigh the good with the bad.
Over the years I've been a part of a few great rewarding websites and I've also encountered quite a few not-so-great. I have never been misled by any of the websites I am listing within this lens.
You will only find 100% legitimate paid (cash or rewards) websites listed. However, to be on the safe side I do recommend creating a new email address specifically for any and all programs you decide to join.
Trust Your Gut
Never pay to join a survey or reward company. Legitimate companies are seeking real opinions and reviews from people like you.
Always trust your gut instinct before entering personal information.
If it sounds too good to be true - It is!
All of the websites I am listing have always worked for me. I've been a member of each one for at least 6 months before deciding to include them within my lens.
I decided on 6 months because I wanted to be sure I could trust them before adding them to my list of favorites. I like to keep them in alphabetical order regardless of the websites status.
Most of these do not offer referral rewards which doesn't bother me because I believe in the company. Hovering over the links will show you (at the bottom of your browser) which ones offer a referral and which ones don't.
If you are not comfortable clicking on my links, feel free to search the survey company by name using your search engine of choice.
