    Making cash from online survey sites - new MSE guide 9th Jan 13 at 3:28 PM



    Hi all, we've updated our Survey Sites guide to help you make cash from online surveys.

    How did you find the info? If you're a survey stasher, do you have any other sites you'd add?

    Thanks
    for your help!

    Beginner to surveys - help please
    Hi everyone

    I am new to the MSE forums and looking to boost my income. I have joined Swagbucks and Prolific Academic (though they have no surveys for me at present).

    What other sites do people use?

    Any advice or tips?

    Many thanks

    Hi


    Swagbucks doesn't pay that well for surveys when you compare to some other places. There are however loads of other ways to earn swagbucks so worth investigating the Swagbucks thread on here. I tend to do a survey on there if I am struggling to meet the daily goal, otherwise I don't really bother.

    Prolific Academic is a good one that seems to pay well. I have been on there for just over a week and have £25 so far (with a few more studies waiting approval). You need to refresh the page regularly for this one as studies appear and fill up very quickly. As soon as you see one click to join and start it as soon as you can.

    I tried my survey but seem to be having problems with them. Not sure if anyone else uses that one?? I joined and did a couple of surveys and then it just said my account was inactive. I have messaged them to see why but not heard anything back yet.

    Last year I did Toluna but that really wasn't worth it (well not for me anyway). Seemed to take ages and ages to get enough to cash out so I got to that point and stopped.

    One Poll is another one I am signed up to. Again I have been doing this one for just over a week and have about £6. You have to refresh the page several times a day to try and get surveys and they don't seem to appear that often. Also you need to get £40 before you can cash out which I think is quite high. Some people seem to like it others don't think it is worth it.

    Good luck

    Personally I wouldn't use swagbucks for surveys, unless they are short ones. You can earn enough to get £5 a month easily in a few mins a day from swagbucks by doing daily watch, daily poll etc, but if you are doing surveys they are generally too long for a little reward.

    Panelbase.net and mintvine.com are two of my favourite ones.

    If you want to do surveys via mobile, then sites like crowdology.co.uk and surveyeah.com are good, and they all use the cint app so you don't need different apps for each site. Both have a low £4 payout so really easy to get there.

    In addition to the ones posted above Surveybods is quite good and the surveys are easy on the eye, also valued opinions and globaltestmarket will send lots of invites but be prepared for getting screened out of a fair few. It's all about demographics where surveys are concerned and some work much better for some than others.

    ETA - ones I don't think are worth bothering with are Mysurvey , Toluna and Ipoll.

    I use Valued Opinions, and i normally get a £10 voucher payout every 2 weeks or so. There are always at least 5 surveys available every day when i come home from work!

    Recently i have started using Panelbase, which i find has been pretty good with the surveys.

    Mintvine is one of my favourite, and Swagbucks.

    Hello,
    I just wondered if there are any surveys sites that allow 2 people from the same house to both join. Thanks.

    Most Rewarding Survey Sites
    I was just wondering which sites people think are the most rewarding for surveys?

    I like Populus Live, they offer £2 to £4 per survey and can often be about politics.
    I've also made some money from Panelbase, whose surveys are around £1 to £1.50 normally - though I regularly end up answering 10 questions and get screened out which can be annoying.

    What survey sites do you recommend?

    Thanks

    valued opinions and prolific are my main ones

    i have signed up to a quite a few, ipsos are always sending emails but they don't pay very well

    beware with valued opinions though, sometimes you can get halfway through a survey and they'll say you're not eligible anymore which is frustrating but its usually made up for with more surveys

    also pinecone - look out for invite banners on websites like mumsnet and netmums
    New Comper and Survey Addict
