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 e-mail address.

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.

  • 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.
Points may vary from country to country.

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.

Visit testandvote to get further details and register.

Available in the following countries:

    STOP PRESS - I can confirm this company is 100% genuine as I won one of their quarterly prize draws and received my choice from a list of prizes all worth several hundred dollars. I'm now the proud owner of a 30GB Creative Zen vision:M

     IPSOS

    IPSOS Interactive Services is one of the world's leading market research agencies. By joining their research panel, you'll earn points that can be exchanged for High Street vouchers. One of the more active panels - I receive survey requests most weeks from this agency. They are also one of the best for sending out new products to test. Earnings build up pretty quickly - I recently took a look at the balance of my account and discovered I'd earned £60 since I'd last logged on!

    Whilst originally targeting UK residents over 18 plus US (over 30) US (under 30) and Canadian residents they are now recruiting in parts of Europe. Just click on the relevant link below to find out what's on offer in your country.

     GlobalTestMarket

    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:
    Europe
    Worldwide

    Whilst not actively recruiting elsewhere, it is still available worldwide so everyone else should visit GlobalTestMarket International

     American Consumer Opinion

    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 you refer who joins the panel and completes at least one survey.

    Panel members must be at least 18 years of age and reside in one of the following countries:

     Survey Spot

    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 complete.

    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 Australia

     SurveySavvy

    Survey Savvy pay $3 cash for completed surveys and also earn from referring friends - $2 for survey completed by your referrals, and $1 by their referrals.

    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

    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:


      Valued Opinions

    Valued Opinions, 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.

I receive several surveys ever week from this company, earning enough for a payout nearly every month as well as test products.
