The Paid Surveys Page

Note: Paid Surveys are not a get rich quick scheme. These are established market research companies that are part of a 25 billion dollar industry. In fact you'll find the parent companies of some of the services we review among the largest market research firms in the world.

Social media sites profit from your information, why not cut out the middlemen and get paid directly for sharing your opinions and knowledge? Get paid to answer questions, it's really that easy!

There are all sorts of paid survey companies (see the FAQ to learn more). We only review legitimate opportunities, no scams or shady companies. Also, we only review companies that are free to join. Paid survey services that require a fee are scams.

Note: Many of the reviews on this page have been temporarily removed as we audit some of the older companies to make sure they're still legitimate. Reviews should be coming back online over the coming days.

YouGov is one of the biggest market research companies in the world. For some demographics this translates to a lot of paid surveys. Your mileage may vary. Get 2000 points (about $1.50) for joining and another 2000 points for joining from this site! Note that you won't get the second 2000 point bonus until you've completed 4 surveys so stick with it! By that point you should be halfway to the $15 payout minimum.

YouGov payments are made via gift card. We rarely review these kinds of companies because there are plenty of alternatives that pay in cash. In YouGov's case, though, we decided to include them due to their place in the industry and the easy to use cards ( is one option).

Referral Program: 2000 points for each referral.
