Paid Survey Tips & Notes:

Best Paid Survey Sites USA1. You may notice that there aren’t hundreds of survey sites on this list – this is because I only list those legit and good survey sites that worth joining. Notice that all survey panels listed here pay members either cash and/or gift cards and/or prizes (in other words, no sweepstakes only survey sites), and many of them have high paying focus groups and product testing opportunities.

2. I suggest you sign up with all the survey sites listed here or as many as you feel comfortable – because the more survey sites you belong to, the more surveys you will receive.

3. It is a time consuming process signing up with all the survey panels and fill out detailed panel profiles – I recommend you join all the survey panels and fill out the basic profile first, then go back to each panel and fill out additional and more details panel profiles.

4. I add legitimate new survey sites whenever I find them. I also review this list at least once a month to make sure all survey sites listed here are still active and all links are working. Please feel free to drop me a comment if know any good legit survey panels not listed here or you find any broken links or any survey sites that are “dead” and should be removed from the list, thank you!

I have been taking online surveys for over 10 years. I still think it’s a great way to extra cash online since it’s free, legitimate and quite easy.  I hope you find this survey site listing helpful!  Pleas share it with family and friends or anyone you know who are interested in earning extra money by taking survey online – thank you! Please feel free to leave your comments and suggestions, and ask if you have any questions about paid surveys!

  1. 🙂 I do surveys on Cash Crate and get paid by check every month. Lowest $20.00 not bad. I have been doing for a year now. Good Luck

  2. My name is thompson from Nigeria.am intrested in taking survey @home.please i need a legit survey network thats avalaible for my country,cus i see most of the sites listed here are for those in the state. thanks

  3. i have been sign in for over two days now and cannot complete my survey because there is no list of any survey in the survey list.so please help me with this problem of mine in completing the survey

  4. [quote name=Betty]hello,
    I have been doing survers over a year now. Recently some of the surveys ask for “postcode”. That’s a new one on me. can someone tell me what “postcode” is?
    I appreciate it.
    Betty[/quote]
    Postcode I think is Zip Code or at least thats what I put, I may be wrong though

  5. [quote name=TANYA NORMAN]pinecorn reseach is a joke. they don’t pay you if is over there payout.[/quote]
    I have done Pinecone for about 4-5 yrs maybe little less maybe a little more,& they have always Paid me Every Time, R you doin every survey & not missin any , if U R doin one & missing one or two they may not take U serious

  6. Thank you very much for your feedback Diana. Surveyspot used to be one of my favorites, but I haven’t take many surveys for them lately since they bought/merged with OpinionOutpost. I guess I will need to re-examine them. 🙂

  7. I ‘ve been doing surveys for quit some time, and now I am part of the websites that only offer Amazon gift certificates, so I don’t have to wait for months for the check.My favorite is SurveySpot, they usually don’t pay more than 0.5$ per survey, but I got so many opportunities with them for testing products and focus groups. I also like Clearvoice Surveys, they send new surveys every day and if I don’t qualify at least I still get 0.1$ with them. Also I want to mention the new one Univox, I qualify very often, I reached the payout shortly after I signed up for it

  8. I have submitted a request to withdraw my market point 1700 to Global Test Market in November 2, 2011. However, I have not receive my cheque till date. Can you please help me in this regard?

  9. [quote name=Dreamhrt]MyView says your link is broken. :sigh:[/quote]Not sure what happened, but it has been working for me. Please try again. 🙂

    [quote name=Dreamhrt]Have you heard of MindsPay ?[/quote] – Yes, it’s NOT a paid survey site. It’s a paid offer site, not sure if it’s legit or not.

  10. [quote name=jpaper]whats the best site? that pays the most?[/quote]Global Test Market (in my opinion). Although I don’t qualify for too many (age). If you want one that is very reliable try QuickRewards Network. Not a lot of money but it adds up every day.

  11. [quote name=Janet Wheatley]I have been a member of Lightspeed Panel for several years. Now there is one big problem. Everytime I try to sign in, it says that I am not a member, due to no activity for a long period of time. I had just received some of my rewards a couple weeks ago. I have always been active, taking 3-4 surveys a week. I tried to resign up and the page lets me go about 2 pages in and kicks me out, saying that there is technical error. I have emailed Lightspeed over and over and no reply. I have never had this problem, until now. Now I have lost all of my points that I still had in my account. :huh:[/quote]Since Lightspeed has combined with MySurvey I rarely receive surveys from them directly anymore.

  12. [quote name=Janet Wheatley][quote name=Lori]i am a member of global test market.
    i have been there for awhile and i can’t get my points redeemed. it makes me sign in over and over again. is anyone else having this problem.
    i am enjoying reading this site so much.
    thanks for all the help and opinions.

    thanks, Lori[/quote]
    Lori,
    I have been a member of this panel for about 6 years. I have never had a problem cashing out my reward money. I just received a check from them Saturday. It only took 2 weeks to receive it![/quote]Sometimes I overlook something on the form that causes that. Keep trying, they’re a good company.

  13. [quote name=Guest]Does anyone have referral link to viewpoint forum? So, I can join,thanks…[/quote] As of 6/11/2012 referrels have been suspended.

  14. [quote name=sonia perkins]I am a stay home mom with 3 children and new at surveys sometimes i might have 30 mins, 2 hours at the most to do any. COuld anyone please tell me some good ones that are scam free. That pay through gift cards or paypal cause i dont have a bank account. thank you[/quote]

  15. I’m earning at Cash Crate. Done this 4 yrs ago and am back again.I know it’s legit and minimum cash out is $20 dollars of course you can earn more if you take it seriously to have a bigger cash out. Please click my referral.Thanks

  16. [quote name=janice]Don’t get into survey spot, it doesn’t pay e-vouchers. I was a victim, so dont rely on those stupid surveys and waste your valuble time[/quote]
    I don’t know what you’re problem with them was, I got paid via Paypal just fine. Survey Spot is actually one of the first sites I got paid from and one of the few I recommend to friends.

  17. Hi smal1018, I just visited Opinion Outpost site with no problem…Maybe they were having technical problems….can you try again? If it still doesn’t work, here is their contact number I found on their site you can call: 1.877.254.1234 . Hope it helps!

  18. Im not sure how to ask a question on this site but I see you wrote about opinion outpost. I am having trouble getting on the site. It will not go to the page at all. I cant get a phone number or anything. Is anyone having problems like this. My other sites are fine. I am in the US. Can anyone tell me if they are having problems with their site?

  19. Don’t get into survey spot, it doesn’t pay e-vouchers. I was a victim, so dont rely on those stupid surveys and waste your valuble time

  20. Is there any good surveys that pays. prefer one that ask you questions only and pay you nothing that you have to join or receive a free offer. just question and answer then you get paid

  21. [quote name=Doug]Hi and Thank you! , which ones pay the most and fast!! I want to sign up for the top 5.[/quote]Hi Doug, sure top 5 are great, but I suggest you sign up as many as possible cause many of survey sites on the list are pretty good.

  22. I cashed out one time 10 Dollars at pal Research, but at the moment it does not work right: I finish researches until the end, then comes Congratulations you finished, click here, sorry no offer , which means no click, cannot send, just waste of time!!!!

  23. Thanks for your feedback Leslie. Glad to know you are having some success with paid surveys. Pinecone is a good panel, and you can check out all the other survey panels on this list – they are all legitimate market research companies and they do pay. Also want to let you know that please be careful if you decide to take Panda’s “surveys” and never give out your credit cards information. That’s all! 🙂

  24. I am 55 yrs old and have been doing surveys for about 2 yrs now. I have been earning money on Panda research simply by opening the emails they send. I received $50 to my PayPal account in Jan. 2012. I also Do surveys with Pinecone Because they are the only one that I’ve found that actually pays you when you do a real survey! They email you a survey, you answer the questions and you receive $3.00 to your prepaid Mastercard that they send to you when you join. I get about 4 surveys a month. I have also received products that are not yet on the market to try and then fill out a survey about them which they also pay me for.

  25. Thanks for the information! I want to do some online paid surveys to try and get some extra cash. We could certainly use all the money we can get this time of year.

  26. Sorry to hear about the trouble Clairebear. Believe it or not once my account was once blocked, and I contacted their customer service (first by email then by phone) and it turned out that some SOB was spamming my referral link and they accused me of referral fraud!!! I was mad!! :-x. Anyway they later admitted it was not me and they re-activated my account. My point is you never know what was going on!! I suggest you contact them again and if possible call them. I know they have a phone number for US members, but not sure about UK. Good luck!

  27. I was with MySurvey for a few years and received some good payments but then they blocked my account and didn’t tell me (Only after a few weeks when I didn’t receive any invitations to surveys)

    They won’t say when or why, just that their system detected an irregularity (there are none because I check my details regularly) and not only were they blocking my account with no explanation but they are stealing back £20 of incentives I earned…

  28. I HAVE A TRICK TO COMPLETE A TWO SURVEY!!
    Daily Survey (PR1904) – India
    Daily Survey Router (PR1980) – Worldwide

    BUT I NEED MORE TRICKS TO COMPLETE A SURVEY ANY ONE HAVE NOW I M GIVE U MY TRICK & U GIVE ME YOUR , ANY ONE INTERSTED CONTACT ME NOW :- ( emailaddressremoved )

  29. Hi Duncan, NONE of the companies on my list requires you to purchase or sign up something/programs. All companies on my lists are legitimate market research paid survey companies/panels that will pay YOU for your time and opinion. Those require you to sign up programs are NOT real paid survey sites, they are either scams or paid offer sites, but they are NOT paid survey sites. Hope it helps.

  30. Hi,

    I have taken some surveys and at the end the company has required me to purchase something, or signup for a paid program.

    Do these companies on your list do that particular practice at the end of their surveys?

  31. [quote name=sonia perkins]I am a stay home mom with 3 children and new at surveys sometimes i might have 30 mins, 2 hours at the most to do any.

  32. [quote name=Debbie][quote name=Tony][quote name=stoney1700]Has anyone ever had their account “frozen” due to “data concerns” by Opinion Outpost? I have been a member of that site for years and suddenly I can’t log in anymore and get this message when I try. I don’t get it.[/quote]
    My account was frozen after a couple of years so I’m guessing that if you make too much that they find a reason to close/freeze your account. Try emailing them to unfreeze your account.[/quote]I just found out that my account is frozen too and I have been a member for years. I received an automated email after I sent one. It said:

    It appears since their moving accounts to a new site they are auto-replying to every support request with that response.
    Are you sure your account is actually frozen?
    I know I was not able to login for around 2 weeks before they sent me an email with details to login to the new site.

    My account was frozen after a couple of years so I’m guessing that if you make too much that they find a reason to close/freeze your account. Try emailing them to unfreeze your account.[/quote]I just found out that my account is frozen too and I have been a member for years. I received an automated email after I sent one. It said:

  35. [quote name=mike]is inboxdollars one of the paid surveys or is it a scam?[/quote]
    inbox dollars is not a scam.
    however, as I wouldn’t sign up for offers that cost me money, it took a couple of years to reach the $30. payout. they sent the check immediately after I requested it.

  36. Hi Mlynn, I love your site here, I am always on the look out for the names of survey sites I have a lot of these same one’s list on my blog http://paidsurvey100.blogspot.com. I am going to look over your list and check out the one’s I don’t have posted so that I can share them also.

  37. I wonder if there are legit surveys for people living in India. I am a member of Global Test Market…the main problem out there is that I hardly qualify for most of the surveys.

  38. [quote name=mike]is inboxdollars one of the paid surveys or is it a scam?[/quote] They are not a scam, I have been paid by them

  39. Hi Mlynn.I am new to surveys. I have heard that some sites will give you partail credit for surveys that you are disqualified for part way though the survey. Can you reccomend any?

  40. Hi Lori – are you sure it was McCormic. I think it’s strange that if you are not registered with them, how did they get your email??

  41. Help, I just did a study on BBQ/shopping for I thought McCormick or general mills. I got enought points for a 100$ amazon card so it’s a points based site. Both of them say I’m not registered. I’d hate to lose my $100, any idea who this was through ? I deleted my e-mails (dumb dumb dumb) Thanks it was about a week or two ago

  44. Hi everyone, the best survey company to get into is Pinecone. I was a panelist and I received checks in the mail for about 3-5 dollars per survey. I also received full size sample products to try. It’s not easy to get in. You have to keep an eye out for their banners. I had to stop doing surveys for them due to family crisis and waited to long to ask to be allowed back in. They told me I could reapply and when I did I was denied due to not being the in the profile group they were looking for. I still say they are the best and legitmite site out there.

  45. [quote name=Amber]Hi Mlynn. I just found your site and think its great. I have a couple questions that I hope you don’t mind me asking! On average how many hours per week do you spend on surveys and what is the average weekly pay?

    hi

    an excellent site to join is http://www2.quickrewards.net/?r=!F94VXV35D4V8B

    copy paste this link on to your address bar and register.

    there is around 10c per day for 5 mins work + at least $3 per day if you do the surveys every day… there are about 10 surveys every day but you may get through 4-6 per day.

    If you buy online using quickrewards link, you get cashback or points that can be converted later into cash. I use Paypal for my daily cashouts.

    Hope this works well for you!

  46. I noticed that Valued Opinions (valuedopinions.com) on your list says it offers Cash(Visa Card) not any more, but they do still offer the Amozon and or other gift cards.

  47. Hi ..friend…..i got my first payment of 6 $ from Esearch.com ..also credired in my Paypal account,,,,,,thanx Mysurvey Team….i hv joind this site thru u…,,plz advise me to join any genuine survey site…..I m ready to pay joining fee……thanx

  48. well I finally got my payment from mysurvey, only took 14 days, when all of my previous ones took 6-7 days.
    Still love how their support gives no explanation for anything.

  49. I am a stay home mom with 3 children and new at surveys sometimes i might have 30 mins, 2 hours at the most to do any. COuld anyone please tell me some good ones that are scam free. That pay through gift cards or paypal cause i dont have a bank account. thank you

    Kindly sugest me survey sites which wrk in india too…i shall be highly thnk ful to u

  52. Porter –

    Really appreciate the feedback… Please keep us updated on what happens next..Thanks!!

    Anne – sorry to heard paid surveys is not working well for you. I know it might be a little tough for retirees. Do you mind telling which 20 sites you signed up with?

  53. I am retired and recently registered at more than 20 different survey sites. I have since spent/wasted several hours every day doing the survey questionaire profiles for each site, only to find out that I have not qualified for a single one. Some of the questionaires are pretty long. This is a JOKE!!
    A total waste of my precious time and energy! 🙁

  54. So after asking what fraudulent activity, and stating I work hard to give honest answers on all surveys I complete.
    I got this response “Thank you for your patience. Please know your points are being returned for your canceled order.”
    And the points are back in my account as stated.
    I guess we will see if they pay out this time around…

  55. Gee that’s awful Porter. what a mess!! I am disappointed at MySurvey too…I also have heard people having technical problems when taking surveys with them…That’s why I haven’t taken their surveys for a while..now this cash out problem is even more bothersome, cause I never had cash out problem with them before. 😡 By the way I am able to login now (their support got back to me pretty fast)…guess what I was going to take this survey – was told the survey takes 30 minutes, but they didn’t say how much points I get paid, so forget it!!! 😕

  56. Hey mlynn
    I had an issue logging in like a month ago, it said my account was inactive, after contacting support it was re-activated with no explanation why it was made inactive.
    about a week later i reached the $10 cash out through paypal requirement and when i tried to cash out it gave me a message stating that ” sorry your cart total exceeds your account balance” when I was 300 over the required point level.
    Contacted support and got that resolved but that is the cash out that has been “canceled due to fraudulent activity”
    on top of that i am again having the cart total exceeds point balance error again.
    I did a quick search and found some of the survey panel rating sites, i noticed quite a few negative reviews recently compared to mostly positive before, including one persons account that was closed for not living in the US when they do.
    It almost sounds like Mysurvey is starting to do anything possible to avoid paying out.

  57. Hi Porter, wow! that sucks! I wonder what’s going on with MySurvey?! I have been having login problem too. Just sent them an email. (by the way, I accidentally deleted them from the list, put it back but move them down from the list).

  58. Hi jheni – sorry to hear you’re having problems with SurveyHead. How long have been since you took the survey? – Sometimes it takes a while to see credit, I still have a survey not credited yet that I took this January 😐 . But that’s the only one and all others were credited. Can you give them a little bit more time, and contact their support later?? Good luck!

  59. What happened to Lightspeed Research/Mysurevey?
    It used to be near the top of the list.
    I was going to post a comment because Im having Issues with cashing out and now they say its because of “fraudulent activity”.
    I wanted to ask if anyone else is having the same issue and if thats why its no longer on the list?

  60. 🙁 hi, im a philippine residence and i’m trying to had an extra income via these online survey, i am a member of surveyhead & been completed 1 survey but until now i never recvd my email acct activation, and even to know if i am qualified. i guess surveyhead just use my time & effort for nothing consider as a scam! i have few questions can anyone please help me, most of the survey company pay thru pay pal or check can a non us residence like me can join these curvey company and is’t really true that if i choose check are these company pay u in check?

  61. [quote name=tracy]thank u for the good work[/quote]You are welcome tracy, and thanks for visiting!

  62. Hi Porter, No probem logging in, but I had problem before. I contacted their support: support@dailysurveypanel.com – got problem resolved in 1-2 days. I know they recently upgrade their site, their support is pretty good. Good luck!
