1. Swagbucks

A wellknown and very popular name in the survey sphere that offers a great variety of methods to earn rewardsWho are they? Swagbucks are a great survey site who also offers you their rewards through watching their videos, playing games and using their search engine!Rewards: Cash, vouchers and prize draws.Amount per survey: 70 points called SB (40p).Min. reward threshold: 1 SB.Our review: I love Swagbucks, and I hear positive reviews from our Reddit about them too. I’ve found that completing surveys and polls every day provides the best return for your time, however using themSurveys take around 10 minutes to complete, meaning you can earn around £2.40 an hour. Swagbucks also offers users the ability to complete surveys from multiple providers and give consolation points when you don’t qualify for a survey.

2. InboxDollars

Inbow Dollars is one of the largest GPT (get paid to) services on the internet. They got extremely popular by paying you to get emails but have since also expanded into other types of GPT methods.They offer a great sign up bonus of $5 and on top of the surveys you can also make money from searching the web, shopping or even watching videos amongst a lot of other things!The best thing about the survey part is that the rate for being disqualified for a survey is very low. This means that almost every time you start a survey, you’re guaranteed to get paid.InboxDollars has a great reputation and an astounding 10 year record of completing payouts. You can trigger a payout at $30 and they send it directly to your PayPal account. This means you get real money as i know, we’re not all fans of giftcards.This one is my personal recommendation.

3. Pinecone Research

Because of their long history of customer surveys for a series of large manufacturers, they have become one of the most respected information gathering companies in the world, and you can start making money with them today.Pinecone has one of the biggest payouts on a per survey basis that you can find online, at a rate of $3 per survey. They do not offer the same bulk of surveys that you will find that some of the other sites on this list does, but the higher payout makes it well worth it being a part of their program, and besides you can use any of the other sites while you wait.Pinecone Research offers to payout either directly to PayPal or from a catalog of various different products.In order to become a member, you first need an invite link. These can easily be found by googling “Pinecone Research become a member”.

4. MyPoints

The company started in the mid 90’s with simple things like earning points from somehing as easy as emails. Over the next few years they kept expanding and added new features like paid surveys, search and even online shopping (standard getting your money back stuff)You can cash out point for either cash directly into your PayPal or into gift cards, but the dollars per points is over 10% higher for gift cards so if they offer any of your usual stores i’d consider that much more lucrative.

5. MySurvey

MySurvey is one of the most popular source of paid surveys because of the simplicity it specializes in. MySurvey has decided to their emhpasis on the things users really care about, the rewards. The site therefore offers limited graphics and really easy to understand instructions.One of the things i appreciate the most about their service is that they do an amazing job of not hitting you up with spam offers that aren’t of any use for you.If you’ve used this website far into the past, you might remember that it wasn’t very easy to navigate on a mobile device, which is something important for paid survey users as they like to do them during their commute. They have since updated their website and have fixed all issues. Their platform now works splendidly on smartphones, tablets and computers.

6. Vindale research

Vindale Research has proven to be one of the most reliable sources of paid surveys with over 12 years in the industry.Their parent company, SayForExample Inc. has recieved an A- rating the the Better Business Bureau and with that you can make the conclusion that there should be no problem with the legitimacy of their paid survey offers.Their only downside is that they have a really high payout ($50) compared to their peers in the paid survey industry. This means that it will take you a good while to actually start earning money with them for real. If you give up at $25 that means you haven’t made a single dollar yet and have just wasted your time. However if you are dedicated and plan on doing this for a while then i’d say it’s definitely worth signing up for as a part of your money making strategy.

7. E-Poll

E-Poll specialty is surveying your absolute favorite TV shows.The surveys are extremely quick and frequent but also offer a really low disqualification rate, which can’t be said for many other sites.

This means that the more points you hoard on your account, the less expensive the gift cards get. For a quick example, 3,500 points will get you $5, 6,750 will get you $10, 12,500 points will get you $20, and so on.The minimum payout is $5 and you should get around 10 surveys per month.
