Online surveys can earn you a little bit of cash on the side in your free time. Is it worth it? Online surveys aren’t for everyone. There are multiple online survey sites that offer payment through pay pal, check, or gift cards. Certain sites have a better reputation than others but each work the same way. Don’t expect to make more then a few dollars a day off each site at most, however you can earn bigger bucks doing a special survey such as an in store survey. I find these to be rare and have never used a site that offered high paying surveys.
A few decent sites/apps that I have used are inbox dollars and quick thought surveys. They are both available as apps on a smartphone or as regular websites. The good news with inbox dollars is that they can send you a check once you hit thirty dollars. You can make up to around 75 cents per day watching videos and scratching off the bonus tickets that often appear after each video. The money earned is credited to your account the next day. If using the app the navigation buttons are always on the bottom of the app. This makes accidentally backing out of a survey possible so be careful.
You also receive usually around one or two paid emails a day which are worth two cents each after you confirm them. You can earn up to fifteen cents a day using the their search engine if you search daily. The main source is surveys. You can earn anywhere from twenty five cents to two dollar’s on average usually on the lower side. It can be a little frustrating since a lot of surveys have strict criteria. Combined with all this and you can make up to a few dollars a day if consistent.
Quick thoughts is one of the first survey apps. You usually earn a dollar or sometimes more for each survey you take however with quick thoughts you can only redeem ten dollar amazon gift cards. This shouldn’t bother most people because for a survey site, you can rack up money quicker then you would think. You can make anywhere from a dollar to seven dollars a day. If you don’t qualify for a survey you still earn ten cents for trying. I’ve made nine dollars in a day before and qualified for most surveys.
So is are online surveys worth your time? In my opinion they can be. If you treat it as it is and be patient you can really save up a decent amount of money on the side. However if interested it’s fair to say that you should try it out for yourself and see if you think it’s worth your time or not.
