Hi there, you cutie-tootie! I’ve been on a quest to make more money from home and one of the ways I do that is to take surveys for cash in my spare time. It’s not going to make me a million bucks, but it will add a bit of spending money! Who doesn’t like that?
Besides that, the more money I can make from home means I’m less likely to have to go back to that dreaded 9-5. Yuck!
*Back Story – I left my 9-5 a year ago for the beautiful world of blogging – on a whim – with no experience or tech skills, and I’m still chugging along! If you’ve ever had that whim, check this out.
Today I want to share some of my favorite survey sites to make a little extra on the side.
You Can Take Surveys For Cash?
Yes! Let’s Start At the Beginning.
Governments, as well as our favorite brands and restaurants, like to – believe it or not – know what we think of them to make improvements. They do this through Market Research Surveys. They pay companies to handle the – get to the people – stuff that gets done by offering an incentive.
Incentive’s for taking surveys is usually through a points system. Once you’ve accumulated so many points, you can cash out!
Take Surveys For Cash: Top 10 Sites
YouGov is my favorite survey site to make extra money. I’ve been using it for a long time, and it’s always the first one I choose in my inbox. It’s more political, but I just did one about fast food, so the surveys do vary. Generally, you earn 500 points per survey but they occasionally throw one at you that’s way more than that.
If you want a no fluff survey site to make some extra money, YouGov is for you.
Swagbucks is a favorite among a lot of people I’ve talked to and for a good reason. They offer different ways to make money other than a Plain-Jane survey. You can earn money by watching videos, playing games, shopping and more! I like to watch videos or play games during commercial breaks; now I can earn while I’m doing it. Easy peasy.
