Finding legitimate survey sites that actually pay can be challenging if you do not know where to start. If you keep reading you will learn that are actually quite a few survey sites that are reputable and pay out rather quickly.
Ipsos i-Say made my top 3 because of the immense amount of surveys that they have available for you to take. The surveys all payout well, and I managed to finish almost all of them in less time the estimated (with still answering the questions honestly). What I also like about i-Say is their loyalty program and that their highest payout of PayPal is the best deal. Since I use taking surveys as a long term strategy, this combination allows for me to make more money over the long run.
Survey Spot is run by the same company as Opinion Outpost, and it has the same legitimacy to offer. The reason I have Opinion Outpost higher is that I noticed slightly more surveys available through them. Not a lot to make a big difference though. One thing about using both SurveySpot and Opinion Outpost is that sometimes they have the same surveys available on both sites, but you can only take it once. Fortunately, they will tell you you’ve already taken the survey right after you click on it, so you don’t waste time.
Legerweb is a straight forward survey panel website. There are surveys available through the dashboard, and they are emailed to you. When your account reaches $20, you are able to cashout via check. There are also monthly prize draws of cash and electronics that you can possibly win. Epoll is a survey company that offers surveys mostly related to watching TV. The surveys are either about your TV watching habits, or give you the opportunity to watch new shows and give them feedback on the shows. The cash out minimum is $5, which is nice because it is easy to hit. You can get your cash via Paypal, which is always my favorite option.
YouGov is an international survey taking company. Along with surveys, they ask you to read articles and then comment on current events. The articles can be on anything from political to sports. It is one of the slower to reach payout minimums, since the surveys don’t give many points. However, they are a legitimate paying company, and it is a nice change to comment on current events to make money.
GlobalTestMarket offers online surveys that are focused around developing new products and services. The surveys are usually 10-20 minutes long. GlobalTestMarket is available in multiple countries, including the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Germany and Canada. They are always expanding their reach, so this may not be an exhaustive list.
