This is a guest post from Karen at Frugal Rhode Island Mama, where she blogs about weekly deals/sales/freebies. Last week, Karen gave some advice for making money with online surveys. This is part two.
Here are a few companies I’ve worked with that are REAL and I’ve been PAID by them:
Opinion Outpost – Each qualified survey is worth points and 10 points equals $1.00. Once you have 50 points or $5.00 you can request a check. The checks take a few weeks. I’ve been paid several times from them and I’ve never had a problem. If you don’t qualify you’ll get to choose between a chance for an instant win of $50 or a sweepstakes entry. You won’t receive points for the surveys you don’t qualify for.
Survey Spot – Each survey is either worth cash or a sweepstakes entry. They send out several emails a day/week with survey opportunities. The email will always tell you what you will get for taking the survey. Myself along with others I know that have worked with Survey Spot find that when you join they will send you mostly sweepstakes entry surveys but after you take a bunch of them, you will begin to get paid surveys as well. Once your account reaches $5.00 you can request a check.
My Survey – Each survey is worth points and 100 points = $1.00. You will get 10 points for every screener you take and then if you qualify to go onto the survey they will tell you how many points you’ll receive for completing it. They also have monthly sweepstakes drawings for active members. Once you reach 1000 points ($10.00) you can cash out and receive a check or you can choose prizes. I always get the check and it usually takes a few weeks.
If you take a survey ONE day that pays $1.00, after a month you’d have an extra $30.00 in your pocket. That will fill up your gas tank and get you a soda! Not bad for about 20 minutes a day of time you’d probably be spending online anyway!
