Looking to earn a little extra cash while spending time online? There are plenty of companies looking for help with market research, that will pay you to take their online surveys.
You won’t become rich from filling out online surveys, however, surveys can provide you with additional pocket-money, or even gift cards to spend at your favourite retailers.
Keep in mind, not all online surveys are created equally. The amount of time it takes for you to complete each survey, the amount of money/gift cards you are paid per survey, and the amount of time it takes to receive your payment, will vary from company to company.
While many survey companies provide cash and/or gift cards as payment for completing surveys, some companies occasionally “reward” you with contest entries, or even free products. For example, upon completing a survey, instead of receiving a cash payment, you may receive an entry into a contest for the “chance” to win $1,000.
