Online surveys are an excellent way to earn a few easy dollars, miles, or points, and a great way to keep travel programs from expiring. I typically do a few surveys every day, especially if I’m not working, and when I could use some mindless entertainment- laying by the pool, as a passenger in the car, giving plasma. Here are the ones I use:
To Earn Cash or Gift Cards:
American Consumer Opinion*- Redeem points for cash or PayPal.
Google Opinion Rewards – Super short surveys on your phone, like 1-3 questions. Android users redeem for Play Store credit, iOS users redeem for PayPal.
Harris Poll Online – Redeem points for gift cards, merchandise, or sweepstake entries.
InboxDollars*- InboxDollars offers lots of other ways to earn money too, my favorite being $0.05 for checking into stores, like even when you just drive past them. Redeem for Visa prepaid cards, gift cards, or check.
MyPoints*- MyPoints offers lots of other ways to earn points too, my favorite being the 5 points I get for clicking on emails. That’s literally all I do. I click on an email. Trust me, the points add up. Redeem points for Visa prepaid cards, PayPal, airline miles, gift cards.
Opinion Bureau – Redeem for Amazon gift cards or PayPal.
Survey Junkie – I love Survey Junkie for their daily 1-minute surveys which are obviously quick but also educational. Like did you know? “According to a recent survey, nearly 51 million US households don’t earn enough to cover basics like rent and food.” and “According to a recent survey, parents in Washington, DC were found to be spending the most on their kids, dropping a whopping $17,920.50 annually to keep their little ones kicking.” WHAT.
