- Ask you to pay money
- Tell you that you need training
- Make outrageous claims that you will earn thousands of dollars
Never pay money to sign up with a survey company. A legitimate company will not ask you to pay ever! They are supposed to pay you. You can always do your research before you sign up with any company especially if it is one that you have never heard of before or is fairly new.
You will not get rich completing surveys online but you will be able to earn a few extra dollars for your time and opinions. If you have a few minutes to spare and you access the Internet on a regular basis, use this to your advantage and earn some money to go out to treat yourself to the movies, or out to eat, or even to save up for that much needed vacation. Here are my top 10 survey companies that pay cash.
- Livewire Research - I always earn at least $5 completing surveys for this company. They only take a few minutes to complete online and they send you a check in the mail in about a week. You can watch my latest YouTube video to see the check that I got from Livewire Research.
- Parent Speak - There surveys take about 5 minutes to complete and you will always get $1 for each one you participate in. If they are longer you will earn more money. The money shows up in your account right after you are finished. They also send out your money via check in the mail.
- Survey Savvy - This legit survey company is recognized by the Better Business Bureau. I have completed surveys for them for a long time and have always gotten paid. They also pay around $5 and sometimes more per completed survey via check in the mail. You can request your check after you have earned $1.
- Panel Polls - I love this company because they will pay you and your family to watch TV shows, commercials, to complete online polls, and more. They will even pay you to test out mobile apps and video games. You will get sent invitations to complete surveys via email on a regular basis, sometimes I have trouble keeping up with all the surveys here. Panel Polls also pays via check in the mail.
- Poll Buzzer - One of my absolute favorites because the surveys only takes seconds to complete. You have to answer only one question and you select your answer below in a multiple choice format. After you pick your answer, you get paid $1! I love this company because they pay fast and there is no payment threshold. Pays through your Paypal account.
