Top 10 Survey Sites
Whilst the number of survey requests you receive will depend
on where you live and other personal details, the following sites
have consistently sent regular assignments.
Before joining any of the programs, consider getting yourself a separate
I'd also recommend you download a copy of Roboform. This free software can be used for auto-filling registration forms
greatly simplifying the application process for the survey companies you'll be joining. In addition it can also remember all
the passwords for each of the sites you join. Find out more from Roboform.
| Test & Vote|
Toluna (formerly Test& Vote)
is slightly different from other survey sites I've come across in that you don't have
to rely on getting invitations for completing surveys, but have several other ways
of earning points or getting free items.
Points may vary from country to country.
- Registration earns you 1,500 points
- Quick votes, each time you take part earns you 15 points (there are always loads of these on the site so visit regularly. They take a matter of seconds to complete.)
- Product testing, registering for each trial earns you 75 points even if you're not selected to take part
- Surveys earn you between 3,000 and 30,000 points
- Referring a friend, for each person who joins Toluna because of you, you will earn 500 points
- Subject panels - complete these to get 500 points per subject.
You can either exchange your points for vouchers (cash in USA and Canada) or use them to
buy tickets in the monthly lottery where you could win cash prizes.

GlobalTestMarket has a very active survey division and requires participants worldwide over the age of 14.
The views of those under 14 may be sought but the invitation will go to the parent for the
child to complete.
You earn "marketpoints" each time you respond to a survey request - the closer you fit the demographics for
the survey, the higher the points earned but you'll always earn 2 or 3 or a daily sweepstake entry even if you don't qualify at all. A typical survey of 30 questions that takes approximately 12 minutes to complete will earn 60 to 80 MarketPoints. You can also earn extra points when you refer others. Each point is worth $0.05 and you need 1000 points to qualify
for payment by check in your local currency.
They seem to be very active. I'm receiving at least 2 or 3 surveys every day at present and generally qualify for at least one of these.
Currently actively recruiting in the following countries:
Whilst not actively recruiting elsewhere, it is still available worldwide so everyone
else should visit GlobalTestMarket International
Contrary to appearances suggested by the name,
American Consumer Opinion
is made up of consumers
worldwide who have agreed to participate in surveys over the
Internet. Occasionally, these consumers are asked to
participate in mail surveys or telephone surveys, but
generally the surveys are all conducted over the Internet.
As a panel member, you will participate in several
surveys a year, typically. The average survey will take 10
minutes or so to complete, and the questions are usually
easy to answer.
Panel members can expect to receive a "screener" (a short
questionnaire) every six weeks or so.
All registered members participate in a monthly drawing
to win $250 in cash awards, just for being a member.
If you answer a screener (a short questionnaire), you
will be entered into a drawing for cash awards and when you
participate in a survey (a longer questionnaire), you will
always receive some type of incentive in the form of a free
product to test, cash, a check, or a gift.
Incentives typically range in value from $4 to $25, per
survey, depending upon the length of the questionnaire and
the time it takes to complete it. If a survey is extra long,
then the award could be $25 or more. Participants in online
focus groups generally receive more than $25.
I've received many payments from this company
| Opinion Outpost|
Opinion Outpost is a survey research data collection company. They work with leading marketing
research companies all over the world as well as many Fortune 500 companies.
You earn Opinion Points for each survey you complete. The number of Opinion
Points possible will be displayed with each survey invitation or on the opening
page of the survey. Opinion Points are redeemable for cash.
The Refer-A-Friend option allows you to invite friends and family to join
the research panel at OpinionOutpost.com. You earn Opinion Points for each person

| Survey Spot|
Internet panel allows members to share with researchers their opinions
on products, services, or issues of the day. To thank members for their
participation, SurveySpot draws $US10,000 in cash awards each month.
Panelists receive one entry into the prize pool for each survey they
In addition to being entered into the sweepstakes drawings, some surveys provide
individual rewards, usually in the form of cash. Whilst this means you don't
get paid for every survey, you do have a good chance of winning. SurveySpot recently
awarded one lucky winner $10,000 for a Hawaiian vacation and I've received 2
cash prizes from past surveys!
They need participants from USA,
Canada, U.K. and
Savvy pay $3 cash for completed surveys and
also earn from referring friends - $2 for survey
completed by your referrals, and $1 by their
What is particularly good about this company for non US residents especially,
is that you can request payment at any time (no minimum),
let the cash accumulate if you wish to save on bank charges,
or even make the checks payable to somebody else if you wish to make a dollar payment.
| Palm Research|
Join the Palm Research panel and get paid to take surveys, participate in focus groups
or test and review different products and services on the internet. You are entered into a $50,000 drawing for
every survey taken and can take a survey every day.
In addition to specific higher paying surveys (see left panel for current requirements), every day they send you e-mails inviting you to 2 surveys paying $1 each and from my experience I tend to qualify for at least one of these most days so $20 a month from this site alone is easily achievable.
Open to residents of the following countries:
pay you for every survey that you complete, with the value of the reward varying from a few cents
for taking part in a text poll, to $100 or local equivalent for attending a focus group. When your account balance
reaches the threshold for your country (eg £10 in the UK), you can exchange it for a gift voucher for one of a
range of well-known high street and Internet shops or a charitable donation. I receive several surveys ever week
from this company, earning enough for a payout nearly every month as well as test products.
