Overview: If you enjoy using the internet, paid online surveys are a great way to generate income while in school. Taking surveys is not only flexible to your schedule, it’s a fun way to make some extra money. You can get started right away, it’s 100% free to join, and the companies below are actively looking for new survey takers 18 years and older.
Earnings: Earn as much as $100+ per specialty survey, but more typically $1-$50 depending on the company, the survey taker, and the type of survey being offered. Increasingly many companies are offering points or points for prizes for participation (that can typically be turned into things like gift cards, electronics, cash, etc), but by registering with all the companies below, you increase your chance of receiving the best cash surveys.
What To Do: To make the most from online surveys, it’s important to register with as many of the “right” companies as possible. It’s a numbers game – the more companies who have your information, the more invitations to take surveys you’ll receive. With over 500 survey sites and research companies in the world today, there are only a select few who have consistently provided the most survey opportunities with the highest payouts and the best prizes. We screen every company to ensure they meet certain requirements including:
Availability of Surveys
Payment, Compensation, or Rewards
Tip: You will always know ahead of time how you are being compensated for each survey. If you only want the surveys that pay cash, you can chose them once you register with each company. The companies below are only looking for a limited number of student participants before they close the offer. As soon as the quota is met, all links will become disabled. Register before it’s too late!
