Five Good Companies that Will Pay You for Taking Online Surveys



With the holidays approaching I am cashing in gift cards and points at some of my favorite survey/opinion companies. If you have ever wondered about legitimate survey companies here  is a list  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  Complete surveys to earn cash and rewards. You can earn cash or Amazon gift cards, game points, donations to your favorite charities, and more.Everyone who enrolls is also automatically entered to a $10,000 sweepstakes! There are also opportunities to do free product testing. Go here to sign up.
