Five Companies that Will Pay You for Taking Online Surveys


A reader sent in a question regarding an online survey company they were considering joining. I had never heard of the company and they were asking for credit card information. For me that is a No, especially when there are several good survey companies out there! You will not get rich quick with any of these, but depending on your schedule they could be a great way to earn a little extra money.

Here is a list of companies I have used or have had friends use with good results.

Pinecone Research This is my favorite survey site. They pay $3 promptly for every survey completed.  Go here to sign up to see if you qualify. (They open enrollment to different demographics at different times.)

My Survey   I have also use My Survey in the past and liked. I have stopped recently only due to a lack of time.  You can redeem your points earned for cash or prizes and every 1000 points equals $10. Go here to sign up.

Inbox Dollars   This company pays members to read emails, take surveys online, play games, and go shopping. New enrollees  receive $5 just for joining. I have never used them, but I have heard lots of positive things about them.  You can sign up here.

Opinion Outpost  Pays in point rewards for every completed survey. You can cash these in for instant win opportunities, sweepstakes, or cash. There are also opportunities to do free product testing. Go here to sign up.

Toluna When you sign up for Toluna, you will receive 500 points to welcome you to the site. When you have earned at least 60,000 points, you may redeem your points for a cash reward. Go here to sign up with Tulona.
