Earn Money with Surveys

Completing surveys in your spare time is a great way to earn a little extra cash. Whether you’ve got some spare time on your daily commute, lunch break or after you’ve put the kids to bed. Survey income will not make you rich but it will pay for birthday presents and treat nights. Here are the survey sites that I use:

  1. Swagbucks
  2. Voxpopme
  3. Prolific
  4. Bulbshare
  5. YouGov
  6. Branded Surveys
  7. Toluna
  8. Attapoll
  9. Curious Cat
  10. Viewsbank 

Carry on reading to find out how much I’ve made from each site and what payout methods they each offer:

High paying survey sites


Swagbucks

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!

Voxpopme (App)

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 will be paid between 25-50p for recording yourself talking about a topic for 15 seconds, questions are fairly regular, and you can earn £1 for recommending a friend.

Prolific

text: "10 of the best paying survey sites" image: coffee cup and laptopProlific 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! 

Cash out method: PayPal once you reach £5.

Potential earnings: I cashed out £20 straight into my account a few weeks back – I’d earned this after completing around 10 research questionnaires and I felt pretty accomplished considering I was helping someone complete their academic research. Some researchers will also send you a small bonus depending on the type of research survey you take part in and how you answer the questions.

Bulbshare (App)

Potential earnings: On day one of downloading Bulbshare, I manage to earn £5! You usually get paid £5 (UK) or $7 (US) for every 3 completed tasks. There are also a lot of competitions where you can win £50, £100 or even £150!

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! My favourite thing about Branded Surveys is that they also reward 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).

Toluna

Toluna likes to consider itself to be an ‘online community’ dedicated to making your voice heard! You can express your thoughts through polls and surveys directly on Toluna and for participation in most Toluna activities, you will be awarded points.

Cash out method: E-vouchers (including Amazon, Costa, Argos & more!).

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! Joining the influencer panel and downloading the chrome extension will help boost your earnings.

  • You should add quick thoughts to the list. They pay in Amazon gift cards every $10. Surveys are usually worth $1-2 each, so it’s fast earning. They let you complete 5 surveys a day and pay a 10¢ bonus on the first 5 a day you don’t qualify for

  • I actually never looked into this survey thing. I saw pins about it on Pinterest here and there but I didn’t know there were so many different ways to earn money doing this. This is really useful information, and a really cool way to earn extra money with your spare time. Thank you for sharing this.

  • 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.
