    I just recently revisited surveys, I didn’t realize there were so many sites. I’m curious how they all compare.

    It doesn’t seem like surveys could replace a job or side hustle, however as a way to make a few extra dollars a day they seem effective.

      Hi Michael! You’re right that surveys aren’t a way to make any significant regular income. It’s better suited to mad money. I prefer Swagbucks and the survey sites that also have rebate programs. I don’t make a ton of money, but it does fund my Starbucks habit and the occasional shopping spree on Amazon LOL. Thank you for commenting.

    Hi, maybe you can help me? I have worked on several of the surveys you listed and still do. I haven’t received a penny from any of the and I specifically ask for cash and not gift cards. How do I collect my money? One site I have 99 tokens, when I hit the tokens button I had a choice to cash in bitcoins. I’ve also been sent 3 Netspend cards and I don’t know why and I get stuck at the end of the survey, in order to complete you have to pick something from there list of gifts which if you read on ,they’re not free. What am I doing wrong? How can I collect my money?
    I’ve joined a mystery shopper and they seem to stress that they want serious people and they know how long it takes to complete a survey on customer service. They will get rid of you if you are faking the survey. The survey is $350 each one, but they are long and I’m waiting on the paperwork to come that gives me all the directions on how to start. I don’t think it will take 5 or 15 minutes to fill the survey out, iyt is much longer.

      Hi Donna,
      Surveys aren’t a great way to make money, and many do prefer to give giftcard over cash. With that said, many offers cards to places you might shop at regularly like Wal-Mart. You’ll need to read the terms on each survey site to find out how and when to collect cash. For example, you might need to have a threshold amount before getting cash, that might be less than what it would take to get a giftcard.

      As I said, if you’re looking for a steady stream of income for important items (like bills), surveys aren’t probably your best option.

      As far as the mystery shopping, I’ve found most jobs can take a lot longer to get you through the process than you’d like. It’s just the nature of the beast.
