Top 5 Survey Sites To Make Extra Income

Updated on June 16, 2016

About a year ago I started looking into different survey sites to make extra money while working full – time. What I found out is that there are a lot of survey sites that will take a ton of your time and give you little to no rewards. But, I also found out that there are some great ones out there too. I personally, don’t like survey panels that pay in points unless you can convert the points to cash but there are some survey sites that give gift cards to different companies such as Target, Walmart, Best Buy and more. Below are my TOP 5 picks for the best survey sites online. .

Mindswarms: If you don’t mind doing live video surveys this is the one for you. Mindswarms pays between 20 and 50 dollars for answering about 1 to 7 questions about products. I have been paid with the survey company and I love it. It’s probably my favorite. The only downside is there aren’t a lot of surveys each month so a person would be blessed if they get more than one. Nonetheless, it’s still a great way to earn an extra 20 to 50 dollars a month.

Opinion Outpost: This site is really awesome site. With this survey site they do pay in points, but that can convert to cash.They have a PayPal option and you can cash out pretty low at 100 points which will equal 10 dollars. They seem to have a lot of surveys and I have gotten paid from them via Paypal but the only downside is that many people don’t qualify for some of the surveys so you have to check in every day to see what’s new and apply a lot.

SwagBucks: You can earn countless ways on Swagbucks. Everything from watching movie previews to taking different surveys and more. Swagbucks let you earn FREE giftcards from Target, Amazon, Best Buy and more when you complete the different tasks on their website.

Inbox Dollars: Inbox Dollars is very similar to Swagbuck. You can earn cash by playing games, taking surveys, shopping online and more. The cool thing about signing up with Inbox Dollars is that you will receive a $5 dollar bonus when you sign up!

Pinecone Research: I have heard a lot about this survey research panel! If you take a survey for Pinecone, you’ll get paid within a day of you have the Paypal option and within a week if you’ve chosen check payments. Almost every survey you take ends with an opportunity to possibly to get in on a good product test. The only downside is that it’s hard to be approved for membership. They currently have a waiting list.
