The Best Money-making Survey Sites That Are Trust Worthy

Many people have a little extra time when they are at home watching TV, in the car waiting for kids to get out of school, or during breaks at work, and some people are looking for a new hobby or way to make money from home. If you have extra time and want an extra few hundred dollars a month, you could try what many do: take surveys. Surveys are an easy way to make extra cash and help the economy produce better products and services—it’s a ‘Win Win.’

One of my best friends who is a stay-at-home mom makes $200-$500 a month taking surveys. Some of that is in gift cards to Amazon and other retailers, but it benefits her family just like cash would. That said, trust-worthy survey sites are sometimes difficult to find. I’ve done a lot of research and highlighted in this post some of the best ones I’ve found.

IMPORTANT: I would really recommend subscribing/signing up for ALL of the companies below. The reasons are many, but the main reason is that it is better to have multiple streams of income instead of one. If you only have one way of earning money (if you are signed up to only one survey company) and it is slow, you lose out that month. Plus, some surveys may not work for you. Most of the survey companies below do compensate you a bit for taking the time to qualify or not for them, but if you’ve never even seen or heard of their product, you may not be a fit and therefore not get the bigger payout. So, in order to maximize your ability to make good money from survey-taking, you’ll want to sign up for them all—and they are free. This way you have a high likelihood of actually making some good money. I’d also recommend using a separate email account to keep things organized, and so you can easily see new offers.

Here are some of the most trust-worthy survey sites right now…
