If you’re looking for a way to earn a little extra cash, here are two legit online survey companies that we haven’t mentioned in a while. We’ve given a brief description of each company and included comments from Pocket Your Dollars’ readers who have used these companies before.
Be sure to check out my post on How to Earn Extra Money from Legit Online Survey Companies to learn more about my criteria for promoting survey companies as well a quick primer on how to get started.
As part of the Ipsos I-Say Community, you get to see new ideas or test new products and services before anyone else. Earn points for taking surveys and use them toward cash, gift cards or charities. Once you complete your first survey, you’ll be entered into the quarterly $5000 sweepstakes and can earn additional entries for each survey you complete.
If you’re a mom, consider signing up for the Ipsos I-Say Panel for Moms, too.
Patti: I like Ipsos I-Say, too. I-say gives points for each survey taken, and fewer points if you try but don’t fit the demographic. You can redeem for cash starting at 50 points.
Opinion Outpost is the #2 rated U.S. survey company, according to SurveyPolice. Rewards include cash, Amazon gift cards, game points, donations to your favorite charities, and more. All members are also automatically entered in a $10,000 sweepstakes. The minimum cash out for Paypal is $10 and $5 for Amazon gift cards.
Keep these things in mind if you’re accepted as a member of Opinion Outpost:
- Each survey has a limit to the number of respondents they can take, so it’s best to try to answer a survey as soon as you get it.
- Stay as active as you can as inactive accounts are removed after 3 months.
- It can take as long as a month (but not usually) to start receiving surveys, so hang tight and be patient.
Karmen: I second Opinion Outpost! I have earned around $80 from them in just over a year. Not a ton but $80 is $80! Fun spending money:)
Christine: I use Opinion Outpost, and there are some that I dont qualify for, but I usually find out right away. I’ve noticed the key for that website is to check your profiles and update them every month. I have a job where I sit at a computer all day, and have a lot of downtime, so its easier for me to do that.
Nate: I do surveys through Opinion Outpost, which sounds similar, though often pays less than $3 per survey. I make maybe $100-150 a year doing that. Not a ton of money, but it always goes right into our vacation savings account when I cash it out.
Your turn: Which survey companies are your favorites? What experience do you have with Ipsos I-Say or Opinion Outpost?
