Online Surveys for Extra Cash, Points and Prizes

How would you like to earn some extra cash by answering brief surveys online, or participating in focus groups? Marketers pay to find out the opinions of consumers like you. So how do you find them?

First of all, do not pay for a list of survey companies. The information is out these for the taking – for free. Secondly, Eclectic WAHM recommends that you create a free email account specifically for surveys. Signing up for these companies creates a large volume of email that you may not want mixed in with your personal messages. Though it’s a lot of email, just remember – this is not JUNK mail, this is MONEY mail! Just log in to your email account when you have time to spend and want to make some spare cash.

Surveys are not "get rich quick" or even get rich at all – it’s about making some extra cash and earning some cool prizes in your spare time. And it’s FUN!

Get Started

1. Open a free email account at Yahoo, Gmail or another service that you use exclusively for surveys. The reason I recommend this is that once you sign up, along with surveys, you may be receiving some "junk" email. While I’ve found the vast majority of the companies don’t send junk mail, as you learn, you may give out your email to a place that sells email addresses.

2. Open a PayPal account. PayPal is an option that many survey companies use for payment. If you don’t already have an account, sign up. It’s a terrific service that’s free. You can also apply for a debit card from them for easy access to your cash.

3. Start a spreadsheet. Not required, but I highly encourage it as it will allow you to see what you’re earning and keep track of payments due and/or points you accumulate. Put as much or as little information as you want to track. I do a list by survey date, company, survey topic, payment amount, payment method and date payment received.

4. Keep a PAPER notebook. This is for your login name and password information for your email and survey accounts. It’s best not to keep those on your computer incase you ever get hacked.

5. Start signing up for companies! Start with some on the following list, and continue searching the internet for more opportunities. There are many sites and blogs out there that list these companies for free.

6. Check your mail. Once you sign up, you’ll receive email invitations to participate in surveys. Many of the companies also have web sites where you can log in, see your points or cash balance, request pay outs and take more surveys. Check your email daily or several times a day if you have time, and log into the sites at least once a week.

7. Get paid! Some companies pay via PayPal per survey, meaning you will get a PayPal payment shortly after completing the survey. Other companies have pay out thresholds where they will pay you when you reach $5, $10, $20 etc. Check each company’s policy to see how their pay outs word.

Links to legitimate survey companies – check back, more will be added soon! I will only list companies from which I have received actual payment.
