Besides being a full time mom, I also do surveys at home, find deals & try to stretch our budget on one income. I am not saying that you can make a fortune just by giving surveys. It's not a lot... but it definitely helps you get a good chunk of pocket money just by doing nothing. I have been with most of them for more than a year. The best thing about giving surveys is that not only do you get paid for your opinion, but sometimes they even send you full size products to try & give your opinion about them. Till now I have tried a weeks supply of chicken nuggets, cookies, lotions, soaps, hair products etc etc & they are mine to keep even after the survey is done. I will be listing & updating some of my favourite sites. If anyone is interested in earning extra bucks, do feel free to click on the below links & register with them. Just make sure that you set another email address dedicated only to surveys. This way your regular inbox won't be overloaded. If you are not interested in giving a particular survey, just delete it. There are no hard & fast rules stating that you have to complete it.
Note : All the below sites are completely free to join. You do not have to pay anything. Basically, they are only interested in your opinion about products & in return they will pay you for your time.
Daily Survey Panel : I have been with Daily Survey Panel for just 2 - 3 weeks now & I have already made $5 with thim. Basically, they give points for each survey qualified & completed successfully. Every 200 points is worth $1. Most of their surveys come with a point value of 110 to 200 or more. You do need to have a paypal account for redeeming your points. You need to have a minimum of 200 points in your account to redeem it.
Inbox Dollars : This is again one of my favourite sites. I get paid for doing absolutely nothing, but just check their mails. Inbox dollars pays you to just open their mails & read them. You have to click the confirmation link included in the email & thats where the cents get credited in your account. Besides mails, they will also send an occassional survey & you get paid more for giving these. If you join inbox dollars now, they will also give you a bonus of $5 as a start up in your account. How cool is that? You can redeem your money once your account reaches $30. After the first withdrawal they will upgrade you to a gold member & you can then withdraw your money weekly. It's slow money, but overtime they really build up.
Send Earnings : This is again the same as Inbox Dollars.
I will keep updating more & more sites as & when possible. I have a few more good sites. If anyone needs a referral to these, pls leave you name & email address in the comments. I will send you a referral link.
Swagbucks : Get paid for searching. You anyways use google for any internet search. How about getting paid for searching. Thats what swagbucks is all about. You will need to earn as little as 45 swagbucks for a $5 amazon gift card or 50 swagbucks for a $5 starbucks card. There are many more prizes & giftcards to choose from. The search results are the same as google & ask.
Mindfield Online Surveys : Again one of my favourite survey site. Minimum cash out value is $10. Each survey will usually pay you a minimum of $1 atleast or more. If qualified, the amount will be credited into your mindfield account within 10 - 14 days.
