There's a seemingly never-ending universe of survey sites on the Internet. Most promise bags and bags of money for not too much work. The truth, and it's ubiquitous throughout life, is that there is no easy money out there. But a lot of these sites will provide some pocket change if you have some spare time, and could even pay a bill every month. The key to making a bit of money off of these sites?
-Be patient. You won't qualify for every survey, but you will qualify for quite a few. Try not to get discouraged if you swing and miss every once in a while.
-Check your e-mail and the websites consistently. Some of the decent paying surveys fill up quickly.
On to some of my favorite sites!
1. Quick Rewards
Quick Rewards is an awesome site for a few reasons:
-Multiple ways to make money. You make a (very) small amount to click on their links and read their paid e-mails. You can make a bit more money by doing signups and surveys though.
-There is no minimum required payout. Unlike most sites, you can cash out if you have 5 cents or 50 bucks.
-They pay by PayPal, and they pay quickly. Once you cash out, you'll have the money in your PayPal account within 24 hours usually.
CashCrate is another great survey website. Like Quick Rewards, you can earn some money by doing a bevy of tasks, but as per usual, you'll make most of your money from doing surveys, and they offer many on a daily basis. The cash out threshold is $20, but it can be reached fairly fast.
SurveySavvy is one of the oldest survey sites on the internet. And there's a reason it's been around as long as it has: it works. They don't have as many surveys as most sites, but I find that more often than not, I qualify for the surveys. They have a low payout threshold of $5, and they usually pay promptly by check.
Quick notes on YouData:
A. This is the site where you will make the least money. Period.
B. This is also the site that pays you best for the least amount of work.
YouData doesn't do surveys, they only do pay-per-click ads. They don't do them often, but you can easily make 20 cents for clicking on one ad. They pay by PayPal every Friday, so that's also a very nice perk.
That's it for today, but check back soon and I'll have some more great sites to make a few bucks on. Best of luck!
