I started taking online paid surveys about five years ago. The extra money is great and I put all the money I make into a vacation savings I have set up. The money adds up really fast. I usually fill them out while I am watching TV or doing something else that I can multitask on.
A great tool to have to fill out these forms faster is RoboForm. It keeps all your basic info so you can just fill it in with a click of a button.
Here are some companies you can sign up with to get started. All of the ones below I have used myself and received money from.
Global Survey Group – Most of these surveys take between 5-10 minutes to complete and allow you to influence the development of new products and improve existing ones.
E-Poll Surveys – Cash in your points for giftcards to Amazon.com, Starbucks, Walmart and more.
Harris Poll Online – You can redeem points for rewards that include a variety of merchandise and gift certificates.
Opinion Outpost – You can earn Amazon gift cards, iTunes gift cards, or put the money right in your Paypal.
PineCone Research – You will earn points for each completed product survey, which can be exchanged for cash and other rewards. PLUS you will be automatically entered into a bi-weekly Sweepstakes to win additional cash prizes for your time. Each interview usually takes 15-20 minutes.
Opinion Square – Earn rewards like points redeemable for valuable prizes like gift cards, electronics, and home appliances.
