Did you know that a LOT of people (including myself) fund their ENTIRE Christmas with survey companies?!?! I did last year and I am doing it again this year!!!
I have received quite a few 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).
TIP – I highly recommend setting up an email just for your surveys so you can check that daily, do your surveys and close it out (it won’t interfere with your personal emails and you will earn money!).
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!!

To get free gift cards, you have to earn and redeem points. You can earn points by completing free offers, referring friends and family, and winning contests. Once you have enough points (for example 100 points), you can redeem them for an instant $1 gift card.
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. Sign up here.
They pay as much as $10 per survey and what’s really nice is you can cash out with just $10 in your account! Also, as you can see above people are getting $5 cash in the mail to fill out a quick survey!
