Online survey sites are one of the easiest ways to earn extra income from home. They are simple to do while watching TV or even during your lunch break. By spending an hour or two a day on online survey sites you could easily earn £50 – £100+ a month.
What would you do with an extra £100 a month? You could
- save it towards Christmas
- save for a holiday
- pay off debt
- save for a house deposit
- treat your family to a day out
Whatever you spend it on I’m sure you will agree it is a nice boost to the household income! Below I have listed 8 online survey sites that pay cash. These are the sites I have found to be the most lucrative and easiest to use.
Prolific is one of the better paying survey sites with most fees equivalent to £5 per hour or more. The surveys are actually studies conducted by academic researchers. The topics of the studies vary widely and can be a lot more interesting than the consumer surveys on other sites. One of the best things about Prolific besides the high payment is that you don’t get screened out. Prolific only shows you studies that you are eligible for so you won’t waste time answering questions only to be disqualified.
Once you have earned £5 on Prolific you can cash out to Paypal but the Paypal fees will be deducted. If you want to avoid fees then you can cash out to Circle when you reached £20.
Swagbucks is a ‘get paid to’ site which means you earn money by completing various tasks such as answering surveys, watching videos, searching the web and playing games. You can also earn money back on your shopping when you click through to the retailer from Swagbucks. It is very easy to earn a decent amount on Swagbucks without ever completing a survey.
800 Swagbucks can be redeemed for £5 Paypal cash. You can also redeem various vouchers including Amazon.
Branded Surveys formerly known as Mintvine is similar to Swagbucks. You can earn through surveys, daily poll, videos and other tasks. Branded Surveys is a site I check every day as there is usually a good number of surveys to be answered. It is possible to be disqualified but you are almost always given some points for your time. The daily poll is a guaranteed five points every day.
The cash out threshold for Branded Surveys is 1000 which is $10. This works out at around £7.50 depending on the exchange rate.
Mobrog is one of my favourite survey sites because the cash out threshold is low at just £4. It is possible to reach £4 with only 3 or 4 surveys. Unlike some other sites where it can take up to a week to receive your money, with Mobrog it only takes a few hours at most.
I like Onepoll as the surveys are very short. It’s a great site to use when you only have a spare 5 or 10 minutes. The cash out threshold is quite high at £40 but it soon adds up if you do a few surveys each day. You can cashout via BACS or Paypal.
Global Test Market
Global Test Market is a really good earner. I find they always have a good number of surveys available. They also have an app called LifePoints which is great for earning on the go. The cashout threshold is low at just £5. When you have reached 575 points you can cash out £5 to Paypal. The only downside to this site is that it can take a week to receive your money.
Crowdology is another site with a low cashout threshold of £4. They don’t do points so it is easy to see exactly how much money you have made with Crowdology. The also have a mobile app called opinionapp which usually has a good number of surveys available. You can cash out to Paypal when you reach £4 or wait until you reach £10 if you would prefer Amazon vouchers.
With Qmee you can make money from surveys and also from searching the internet. Install the Qmee extentsion to your desktop browser and you can earn money when searching on sites such as Ebay, Amazon and on search engines. There is no minimum amount you need to earn before you cashout. You can cashout at 10p if you want! When you cash out the money is transferred instantly to your Paypal account.
Bonus site: Instagc
I have included Instagc as a bonus because it is great for earning cash but only after you have redeemed 5000 points in other rewards such as Amazon vouchers which is just over £30. The threshold for cashing out at Instagc is low at just £1.
