25+ Survey Sites That Will Add $600/Month or More

This ” 25+ Survey Sites That Will Add $600/Month or More ” describes the survey sites that will help you earn additional money. My wife and I have been able to make extra money out of surveys. While these surveys may take time and will not replace your day job, it’s always better to additional funds. For those who are living outside the US, click this link to see surveys outside the US. This post lists all the surveys available abroad. This post contains affiliate links/ads. See disclosure policy

Before I started blogging back in January of this year, my wife and I had been taking surveys to earn additional money. We tried and tested more than 100 survey sites, but many were unreliable and scammy-type that we didn’t even bother to provide our first name.

My wife and I chose to take surveys that provide cash because we wanted to earn money and not products. Unfortunately, a lot of surveys give out products not cash as a reward. It took us a couple of months to weed out those that didn’t fall into our category. Fortunately, we did manage to find the right ones.

Before I continue with this post, let me tell you that taking surveys won’t replace your day job income, but it surely can supplement it. The money that we (well, mostly my wife) earn through taking surveys help our bank account grow. Since my wife stays home, she’s perfectly fine with taking surveys when our daughter is sleeping, playing, or doing something else. As with me, I take surveys whenever I have time.

Most of the surveys I listed (below) are the ones that my wife and I used and have been using. Some are based on what I know people use. Some are easy to get accepted, and some may not be. Some have strict rules, and some may not have. Some pay more, and some just pay cents. Many pay cash, sweepstakes, vouchers, or a combination of both. Each of these surveys is different in one aspect or another. But as always, it’s always better to read the fine print and try to get into surveys so you could make additional money.

Currently, my wife and I only focus on 2-3 survey sites and make $300/month (roughly). I say that you can make $500 or more because I know that many of my friends make at least $250 per month from other survey sites that my wife and I don’t use. With their survey money plus ours, I say that one could make at least $500.

Just a note, here are some of the posts you want to check out for other survey sites, many of which are not listed here:

25+ Survey Sites That Will Add $600/Month or More

Here is the list of survey sites that will pay you for taking surveys. I will continuously update this to include new sites that I am familiar or the people I know are familiar of. If you know of any that are not here but do help you make money, please let me know so I can include those websites.

Here is the summary of survey sites (some of the most popular on this post). I recommend that you sign up for as many survey sites as you want. This way if a survey site does not work for you, then, you have others to try. If you desire, you can read the benefits of each survey site below.

Springboard America (Get a chance to win $1,000 when you sign up)

Get rewarded Survey Dollars for taking surveys online and entries into contests. When you sign up with Springboard America, you will be entered to win $1,000.  If you don’t like seeking surveys, then, Springboard America is for you.

American Consumer Opinion (My wife and I earn around $150-$175/month)

This is my wife and I’s favorite. Well, let’s say, between my wife and me, we earn around $150-$175 a month. ACOP is very straightforward. On average, each survey takes 10 minutes to finish. Some surveys are long, but the incentives are also higher. Aside from cash, you can earn points, a check, a gift, or a free product to test.

National Consumer Panel (25% discount on AT&T plans and more)

If you do your grocery shopping or anybody in your household does the shopping and want to get rewarded to do just that, then, National Consumer Panel is for you. My wife and I have been panelists for a couple of months now. We have gotten cash and Visa rewards cards.

Get a 25% discount on some qualifying wireless plans/accessories with AT&T. Yes, be a participant and get a 25% discount. That’s a one-of-a-kind benefit you can’t see from other survey panels. 

When you become a panelist, you will receive a handheld scanner. You will use the scanner to scan the barcodes on the products you purchase during your shopping trip. You will record some information like where you shopped and how much you paid. You will, then, transmit the data via your computer to NCP. That’s it.

Pinecone Research  (Top Survey Site 3 Years In a Row)

Note: Potentially earn $3.00 per survey. That’s a lot of money for a survey.

According to Survey Police, Pinecone Research is the top survey site three years in a row. That say’s a lot about Pinecone Research.

Pinecone Research surveys typically last around 15 minutes and rarely disqualify users. They surveys carry a standard payout of roughly $3.00 US, or $5.00 CAD, or £3.

Pinecone Research has had a great reputation for being a great survey website. Pinecone is where my wife and I first started before we focused more of our survey time to ACOP and ProOpinion.

  • Redemption: Rewards can be redeemed via PayPal, gift cards, retail e-vouchers, VISA prepaid cards, and others.

Survey Savvy (Earn $5 per device per month or up to $180 per year easily)

Want to earn without even doing a survey? If you answer yes, then, Survey Savvy is for you.

You can earn $5 per device per month for each month SavvyConnect is installed with up to $180 earning per year. It’s basically free money, if you ask me. What’s the best part with this survey platform? Well, I should say it is that you will be eligible to take additional paid opportunities such as taking surveys and referring friends.

This means that you have multiple ways to earn money and they are not even hard to do. My wife and I have SurveyConnect installed in our phones and we get $10 each month doing nothing. For some, $10 is not big but it pays for part of our gas expense.

EarningStation ($10 bonus after 5 site sign ups)

Before I start, I have to say that my wife and I earn around $100-150 per month from EarningStation.

EarningStation is similar to Swagbucks in that you can earn by watching videos, taking surveys, using coupons, and shopping online. There are times that my wife makes $5 to $10 bucks an hour, which is pretty good when you’re just sitting on your couch and doing nothing.

If you are tired of doing surveys and not get qualified, EarningStation will send you an email about surveys you are qualified 100%. You will earn points called StationDollars, which you can redeem for gift cards. Sign up is FREE. Just make sure you activate your account from your email to get started.

Opinion Outpost (My sister earns $50/month)

Opinion Outpost is definitely one of the top survey sites online.

Just the other day, my sister and I had a talk about making additional money. She talked about Opinion Outpost, and I spoke about blogging, which makes me over $5,000 a month. I have to tell you that my sister is an avid user of Opinion Outpost and she’s able to make extra, real money with it. According to her, she makes around $50/month just using her spare time.

A lot of the surveys take, on average, 10 minutes to complete. Having said that, there are long surveys that you can take advantage of because these will earn you higher points.

  • Low minimum payout: Yes. Minimum payout is $5 for Amazon gift card and $10 via Paypal.

Smart Panel is similar to survey Savvy in that you earn $5 each month for every month Smart Panel is installed. It’s as simple as that. Well, to make it more interesting, you will get $5 right away just for qualifying. Yes, $5 without even doing anything except to qualify.

Want more reason? I’ve got another one for you. As long as Smart Panel is installed, you will get a loyalty bonus every 3 months.

Vindale Research ($2.00 signup bonus)

Do you want to earn up to $100 per survey? If you do, then, Vindale is right for you. While I have not gotten that sweet $100 payout per survey, I have gotten multiple $10 and $15 payouts for individual surveys. For me, Vindale’s payout is one of the best, and it remains as one of my favorite survey sites. Best of all, you can choose the survey that you want to be a part of. You can easily see how much the payout is and how long the survey is first before you even begin doing the survey. Sign up for Vindale Research is FREE.

YouGov (Earn 2,000 points as a sign-up bonus)

Need to take a quick survey and still, earn something? Like to share your thoughts and opinions about current events and controversial topics? If those are what you are looking for, then, you are looking for YouGov.

I don’t like taking long surveys, and that’s why I love YouGov. The best feature of YouGov is that surveys typically take, at most, 5-7 minutes. Rarely do I see a survey that last longer than 20 minutes.

When you take a survey or other opportunities within YouGov, you earn points, which can be redeemed once you reached the minimum set of points. The minimum required points are 30,000, which is equivalent to $25.

Do you think that 30,000 points are hard to achieve? The answer is no. It’s not hard to get those points. There are so many ways to earn those points with YouGov. You can earn points through online surveys, product testing, daily surveys, and friend referral.

Nielsen Digital Voice (earn without taking a survey)

This is not your typical survey. When you hear the word ‘ survey’, the first thing you think about it is filling out information and answering some questions. This is not Neilsen Digital Voice. If you don’t like taking surveys because of the time you need to dedicate, then, this is for you. All you need is sign up, download, and install Neilsen Digital Voice’s app. That’s all you need.

Just keep your app installed and do things you always do such as play games, surf the web, read blogs, watch movies and others. Just go with your business, and you’ll earn regular sweepstakes entries into its $10,000 Monthly Sweepstakes.

Benefits:

  • Survey without survey: You are taking surveys without taking surveys.
  • Reputable company: Nielsen Digital Voice is backed by Nielsen, a well-known company trusted by thousands of families all over the world. Essentially, you are in good hands.

  • Sweepstakes: 400 winners are selected to receive a portion of $10,000 prize.
  • Sign up is FREE: Sign up is FREE.

VIP Voice Panel (Automatically enter for a $1,000 sweepstakes after sign-up)

This survey is somewhat different from the usual survey websites out there in that it’s on a tiered reward system. What this means is that the more surveys you do, the more points you earn. You earn VIP points just by completing a survey. Did I say that once you sign up, you are automatically entered into a $1,000 sweepstakes?

To receive the best experience and value from the VIP Voice Panel, you should do the following:

  1. Register for an account.
  2. Confirm your registration through the confirmation sent to your email.

Benefits:

  • 3X the points: Your 1st survey earns you three times the points.
  • A chance to win $1,000: Once you signed up, you are automatically entered for a chance to win $1,000.

Inbox Pays ($5 Sign Up Bonus)

If you are looking for another survey site to add to your list, you may want to try Inbox Pays. Not only do you get $5 right away for signing up but you also have the chance to earn additional money through different ways.

As a member of Inbox Pays, you can earn money in the following ways:

  • Cash Mails
  • Cash Offers
  • Emails reading
  • Spin The Wheel
  • Referrals
  • Coupons

If you are one of those extreme couponers who happen to clip manufacturer coupons online all the time, you may want to try Inbox Pays because you are getting paid to do that while being able to use the coupons at the same time. Sounds like double benefit in my opinion.

Benefits:

  • Sign up bonus: You get $5 when you sign up. That’s how serious Inbox Pays is to help you make money.
  • Payout method: Cash is the only method of payment. That’s a good one especially for someone who wants to make money.
  • Ways to earn money: Just look at the ways to earn money I listed above, and you’ll see that it’s a lot.
  • Email reading: You get paid by clicking advertisers’ links in the emails you receive.

Swagbucks

Swagbucks is what I call Google + Cash Crate meshed together. Swagbucks pays you with points for using it as your search engine. There are a lot of ways you can earn from Swagbucks (e.g. taking surveys, watching videos, using it as a search engine, shopping online, and trying promotions). You earn points redeemable for gift cards or cash back. As of this writing, it has paid its member over $136.7M.

Benefits:

  • Free money: When you sign up via my link, you will receive $5 bonus right away.

  • Other earning opportunities: I can’t tell you how many ways to earn points with Swagbucks. You can earn points via sweepstakes, polls, surveys, browsing, videos, and so much more. It’s up to you how many avenues you want to try each day to maximize your points.

Survey Club 

I have heard so many good things about Survey Club. While I have not used this yet, I heard that some people could earn at least $50 per survey for certain focus groups. Good for them and I hope it happens to you and me as well. When you signed up for Survey Club, you are free to provide as much information as you want so you can get qualified for more surveys. What I do like about this platform is that you can join several survey panels, which means you can get more surveys delivered to your email. The more surveys you get, the better chance you can earn more money. Sign up is absolutely FREE.

Harris Poll Online

You don’t earn cash with Harris Poll, but you can earn rewards. If some surveys don’t give anything when you fail to qualify for the surveys, well, this is not it. You will earn 15 HIpoints as well as entry into the HIstakes draw. You aren’t missing out anything. There are short surveys, which take around 5 minutes. There are also long surveys, which take around 25 minutes to complete. Want more reason to take surveys through Harris Poll? HarrisPoll gives away $10,000 every quarter through its Harris Poll Online Sweepstakes. Sign up for Harris Poll Online is FREE.

To receive the best experience and value from the Harris Poll Online, you should do the following:

  1. Register for an account.
  2. Confirm your registration through the confirmation sent to your email.
  3. Complete the demographic questions. Completing these questions will allow Harris Poll to target the surveys that suit your demographic information.

ShopTracker ($3 Visa gift card in 2 minutes)

Do you like to get paid when you shop online? If your answer is yes, then, this is the right application for you. The ShopTracker app helps many businesses selling their products online make better business decisions. Businesses like to understand how consumers use technologies like computers and mobile phones. They use this understanding to create a better online shopping experience for them. They use the information they get from ShopTracker to do just that. According to ShopTracker, the app automatically removes the name, address, and payment data before the information is shared.

To get the best experience and value from ShopTracker, please follow these steps:

  1. Complete the ShopTracker registration.
  2. Take a very quick survey (4 or 5 questions). This is to see if you qualify for an account. You basically just need an Amazon account.
  3. Install the app.
  4. Use the app to go or login to your Amazon account.

That’s all you need to do.

Panda Research (Earn $3.00 sign up bonus)

Panda Research is one of the survey sites that I never thought I would love. First of all, you can get a sign-up bonus of $3.00. Yes, you’ll earn that money bonus just for signing up. There are a couple of ways to earn money through Panda Research.

  1. Read emails (Oh, yes. You get paid for reading emails).
  2. Refer friends (Spread the love and get some cash in return).
  3. Take surveys (Of course, you will get paid to take surveys).
  4. Receive coupons, discounts, and giveaways (Yes, you will receive freebies for taking surveys and participating in other offers).

After you registered, you will be provided with a list of surveys available. Once you try the survey and complete the initial screening, you will then be redirected to the clients’ site. There you can participate in their surveys.

Panda Research will also send you invitations if you are believed to be qualified for a given study. Surveys typically take 10-15 minutes to complete. Payments are paid out via the PayPal and are sent to your account on the 1st or the 15th of every month. Minimum payment is $50, which is similar to that of Vindale.

ProOpinion

My wife makes around $100ish every month on ProOpinion. As with me, I only make a few dollars because I focus only on ACOP and the blog. This $100 may not be a lot for some, but not a lot of surveys will pay out this amount of money. There are two ways to participate in ProOpinion surveys: (1) You can receive an email that directly takes you to that survey opportunity, and; (2) You can log in and click the “Take A Survey” button you find on the site. Sign up for FREE.

Cash Crate

Cash Crate is more than just about surveys. There are ways to earn cash through Cash Crate. You can earn cash rewards through surveys, offers, and referrals.

If you refer people and they make money, then, this means that you will make money even without taking any surveys.

Paid Viewpoint

Paid Viewpoint is the latest website that I found and have tried to use. You can earn up to $25 per referral. Time will only tell how much money this site will bring me. This site is different in that the rewards can only be redeemed as cash via PayPal. This is a plus for me because I prefer to earn money than products or points. There are various ways to get notified for new surveys. Email can be sent to you, which notifies you of new surveys, but you can also take the “Trait Surveys” even though it won’t earn you as much. Sign up for FREE.

Valued Opinions

I have used Valued Opinions a couple of times. What I like about this site is that it will email you to let you know the information about the survey (i.e. the survey topic, the amount of the reward, how long to complete the survey, and the expiration of the survey). You can earn gift cards you can use to some favorite stores like Amazon and Chili’s. You can also cash out for a $20 VISA card. Sign up for FREE.

MyPoints

MyPoints is like Swagbucks, Ebates, and EarningStation combined. It is a shopping rewards program that allows you to earn not only through shopping but also through taking surveys, searching the web, reading emails, etc. Yes, you can earn points just by searching the web and reading emails.

Just because it’s shopping doesn’t mean it’s going to cost a lot of money. When you use MyPoints, you will not only earn points, but you can also find available coupons that you can use at your favorite stores, which will save you money in the process. Of course, when you use these coupons, you will also earn additional MyPoints. That’s a double benefit to you.

I can’t tell you enough how rewarding it is to use MyPoints. If you sign up through my link, you will receive $10 back when you shop and spend at least $20. This means that on top of the MyPoints you also are getting $10 back. Need some more reasons to make more and save more money? Look at these benefits.
