Earn Money with Surveys

Published by beemoneysavvy on

Here’s my guide to the survey sites that I use (tried & tested as always) and how much I’ve made from each site. Please note that you aren’t going to earn enough to quit your day job but an extra £5 here and there is always welcomed!


Swagbucks claim to be the web’s most popular rewards program, they reward you with gift cards/cash for tasks that you often already do online. Earn points by shopping, watching videos, searching the web & answering surveys. I’ve almost earned £100 with Swagbucks now, it has to be my favourite survey site!

Cash out method: Money directly into your PayPal, gift vouchers at major stores (including Amazon), Sweepstakes entries

Potential earnings: I’ve earned £70 in Amazon vouchers to date. However, those that use Swagbucks daily claim to earn £5+ a week!

Attapoll is a survey app. It’s available for both Android and Apple – you can only use it on your phone/tablet! It’s a low effort survey app – surveys take around 2-5 minutes (but they’ll let you know roughly how long it’ll take to complete before you accept it). You can download AttaPoll for free here.

Cash out method: Money directly into your PayPal (you’ll need to withdraw a minimum of £5) or charity donations.

Potential earnings: I cashed out my first £5 this week after having the app for a month. However, it depends on how many surveys you complete a day!

Voxpopme is such a simple & quick way to get rewarded to voice your opinion on various topics. The only catch is that you have to record yourself while you give your opinion – so if you’re fine with that this could be a winner for you! Voxpopme is an app available in the US, UK and Australia on iOS & android.

Cash out method: Money directly into your PayPal (minimum withdrawal of £10).

Potential earnings: I’ve earned £15 in 1 month & I’ve spent less than 5 minutes on this app. You’re paid between 25-50p for recording yourself talking about a topic for 15 seconds…  the questions are fairly regular!

Panel App

Panel an app that lets you earn on the go by completing surveys and using your device data, including apps and location, for the purpose of analytics and reporting.

Cash out method: Sweepstake entries or gift cards (including amazon)

Potential earnings: This one is a slow burner but it pretty much earns points without you having to do anything!

Prolific was set up to help researchers find participants for their studies. In return for completing their research questionnaire, you’ll be rewarded with a cash incentive – winner! I’ve discussed prolific before in this ‘get paid to help researchers‘ post. 

Cash out method: Paypal or Circle

Potential earnings: I cashed out £20 straight into my circle account a few weeks back – I’d earned this after completing 10 research questionnaires and I felt pretty accomplished considering I was helping someone complete their research.

YouGov Surveys

YouGovYouGov is a market research firm that rewards you with points every time you complete a questionnaire for them. Once you reach 5000 points you can cash out £50 cash! YouGov surveys take around 5-7 minutes to complete and are on a wide range of topics from politics, products, brands, product affairs and more.

Cash out method: Bank transfer when you reach £50 (yay!)

Potential earnings: I’ve only just joined YouGov so have yet to cash out but i’m told that you could potentially cash out around once a month!

Branded Surveys

Branded Surveys claim to be one of the world’s most popular market research communities. Their surveys are pretty simple, and you can see your rewards stacking up!

Cash out method: Money directly into your PayPal (minimum withdrawal of £10).

Potential earnings: If you use Branded Surveys regularly you’ll be able to cash out much quicker! You also get a little reward if you don’t qualify for a survey (because it’s super annoying wasting your time with surveys that disqualify you after you’ve already spent 5 minutes on there).

Potential earnings: If you use Toluna regularly and get lucky with some big earning surveys you can tally up those points quite quick! For example, I earned 10,000 points in 30 minutes today (55,000 = a £10 voucher), so it wouldn’t be too hard to earn £10 a week!

Survey is a legit side hustle. Every dollar counts.

I earn an average of 4,000 dollars from surveys yearly. As a medical professional, you would be surprised how much they offer for surveys sometimes. A telephone survey could earn you 200 to 250 dollars sometimes. The ones I have tried are SERMO, opinionsite and M3global.
