I have heard about online surveys, and they reward you with gift cards or products for completing them. Does anyone know any sites that are real and not a scam? Could really do with some extra money coming into the household.

  • I have been a part of online surveys for more than 10 years. Some are much better than others. It usually does take some time to get enough points to redeem gift cards though, and surveys aren’t always available. Most sites work out to be about $1 per 10 minutes, so not a get rich quick thing.

  • I haven’t tried this but it sounds like it’s worth a go.

  • online surveys are a good way to make a little bit of extra cash from surveys but you are unlikely to get rich from them. there are plenty of websites out there. quite a few of the ones mentioned here I have received gift cards and paypal payments from.

  • I’ve been using Your Voice, but they recently haven’t credited me with points properly so I need to claim all my points/redeem them so I can leave. Any good ones out there??

  • Pureprofile is definitely the one I recommend. You get paid a small amount even if you are screened out!

  • yeah they really could pay better but if you are bored, then why not

  • these are all good comments. it really depends on if you fit a demographic that they are looking for. the more stuff you have that they like, the more surveys that you get.

  • It’s time consuming but if you have nothing better to do it gives you some spending money every now and then. Market research can pay good but you have to be lucky to get a big paying one. But l have had a few.

  • It’s pocket money, you can’t make real cash this way. Rewards Central, PureProfile, and What Do You Think are all legit.

  • I use valued opinions and nine and wdyt and they are all great. Good luck, a bit of extra cash is always handy.

  • If you have the time, then they pay off in the long run, you won’t get anything straight up, you have to put some effort into it….i have been doing them for a while,you get a gift card here and there, sometimes you get lucky and get a big one….my biggest survey to date was $80 and that was a music survey, easy as, but took about half an hour to finish…. :)

  • The ones I found that were worth the effort was Pureprofile, Opinionworld (points can be turned into money through Paypal) and WDYT. I’m part of a few others but they arent as good. Another one thats no bad is Rewards Central.

  • I do some NIneRewards surveys. Probably one a week in my lunch break. I earn enough rewards points each year to pay for a subscription to my husbands favourite magazines.

    I guess it depends on what you’re doing it for, as to whether it’s worth it or not.

  • Time consuming, lots of spam……I have tried a few, no extra money won or gift vouchers. I have gotten free samples from pinchme, brandpower and by googling free samples. I wouldn’t bother, spend the time with your family!

  • Valued Opinions is a real site, it just takes forever to get the minimum amount to be paid ($20). You get paid 50 cents for most survey’s which can take up to 20 minutes but what I hate is that you can spend up to 5 – 10 minutes answering qualification questions, only to be told you don’t qualify for that survey & then not receive any payment for that time.

  • There are a fair few out there. For you to get better rewards I find you really need to dedicate a few hours per day on them. It also depends on your profile & which surveys will accept your lifestyle etc. The 3 best ones that I think are Opinion World, Nine Rewards & WDYT.

  • If you wouldlike to have a look at one I find good, please send me your E mail to rene@zippy-uk.com and I will refer you, they pay by paypal, which I find is good. You have nothing to loose and if you decide it is not for you, you can cancel.

  • To be brutally honest I wouldn’t recommend any of them unless you have the time and patience to sit at the computer for most of the day.

    Racking up points is very time consuming and for the little you might get, the effort (for me) was just not worth it.

    Did you know that while you may be offered surveys you won’t actually qualify for all of them?

    You may start a survey and depending on your HONEST answers you may then be locked out of the survey and either not be awarded the 250 points or whatever the value was, you may only end up with 2 points or none at all – this is what many people complain about.

    If you have the time then you might think earning $25.00 a month is a good reward for clicking on survey answers and watching videos. Best to do a Google search of PAID SURVEYS AUSTRALIA that way you’ll get a good idea of what’s around and also read some good feedback from people that have done them – the good and the bad, that way you can make an informed decision.

    Also I would recommend if you decide to go ahead then set up a dedicated email from your normal one as you’ll also receive a fair amount of spam.

  • Valued Opinions is a great site for surveys – one can accumulate points very quickly and redeem gift cards. There are quite a few online survey companies available – Survey Village, Opinionworld, My View to name a few. I get rewards quite often and recommend online surveys if you have the time to do them.
