A great way to make a few extra bucks is by participating in online surveys. If you do 1-2 per day while watching TV or during other down time you could make some nice pocket change. Most surveys take between 10 – 45 minutes to complete and pay anywhere from $0.05 cents to $20.00+ depending on the survey. Some companies use a points system instead of cash but points are still valuable because they are usually redeemable for either electronics, household items, jewelry, sweepstakes entries, gift cards, toys and more.
Companies often do market research before making big decisions to make sure their target audience will be interested in what they have to offer whether it’s a new product, tv show, name, logo, etc. They are willing to pay you for your opinion because it saves them big money in the long run by investing in the right ideas.
We recommend signing up for a few different companies because you will not always qualify to take surveys as companies have very specific demographics they are interested in researching. Below are a few survey companies to try out.
