I have received a couple emails from readers asking of reputable survey companies and more importantly if they should pay to join….I wanted to answer that for them and all of you, NO! Don’t ever pay to join a survey company. The companies I list below are ones that are legit and I personally use. I use to do a lot of surveys from all different companies and made extra money from home (this is what I recommend doing because if you are using a few different companies, you are bound to make more money). Just set up an email just for your surveys.
Now you’re not going to be able to quit your job, or become a millionaire from doing these but it’s always nice to get checks in the mail, free gift cards, and some extra gas, grocery, and shopping money!!
*Toluna– I used this company awhile ago and like them, they seem to send a lot of surveys so that’s always good. I know of some readers that really like this company. Earn $1-$5 per survey.
*National Consumer Panel– This is a fun one…you’ll get a scanner and then you scan the groceries you purchase. You can win cash and gift cards. Some people just LOVE this company and some people don’t like using the scanner, I think it would be GREAT to try out if there is a scanner available in your area! You can also see my post here about it.
* Valued Opinions – This is a great company overall and I’ve received payment from them several times.
* Another great survey company called My Survey is now open for survey takers.
*And then of course there’s Swagbucks…this is a GREAT way to earn gift cards, cash to your Paypal Account and more just for searching the web. You can see all the detail in my post here! I am currently saving my Amazon gift cards earned from Swagbucks to pay for all of Christmas next year!
