How to make extra money with Survey Sites

I remember this one year… I was flat BROKE.

I had 2 little kids. One was a newborn. We had just moved and I didn’t want to get another job. We were making it by the skin of our teeth.
And since we were DONE using credit cards, it was a forgone conclusion that there was to be no Christmas present buying this year. But I found a way to make extra money.

I had a secret… I surprised my husband with a secret account where I had earned over $500 in my leisure time! He was amazed… he had seen me take a few online surveys while we were watching TV in the evening, but he had no idea that it turned into real money!
One of the common questions I get from you all is “How can I make extra money at home”?

There are so many survey companies out there, and it can get overwhelming to know which ones to trust. I have come up with a list of 10 legit survey companies that you can use to make some extra cash at home!

Here are my top 10 survey companies to try:

1.) Survey Junkie

This one is relatively new, but VERY promising! They payout VERY fast.

2.) Opinion Outpost

This was my favorite one. Super easy, good payouts, and the surveys were actually interesting!

3.) National Consumer Panel

Make money just by going grocery shopping! This one is actually kind of awesome… and with a smartphone, it’s really easy.

4.) Harris Poll

This is a great one for saving for that Christmas fund! Plus – every survey you complete gets you a chance to win $10,000!

5.) Swagbucks

I LOVE Swagbucks. In fact, I just used gift cards through Swagbucks to pay for a new dehumidifier last month. They’ll give you $5 just for getting started!

6.) VIP Voice

They pay you in the gift card of your choice, surveys are usually quick and you can rack up the points very quickly. You can earn gift cards from VISA, CVS,, and much more!

7.) Inbox Dollars

Get paid for reading emails (I actually never read them I just click through them to get my points). Takes seconds per day, the points don’t add up that quickly but spending literally seconds per day, you can earn gift cards quickly!

8.) My Survey

Get paid $5 – $75 per survey!
