Earn Money: online surveys


There are a growing number of research companies out there offering rewards for your opinions, however they’re not always as ‘legit’ as they make out.

With this in mind, we’ve created a run-down of the trusted survey sites, personally tested by out users and us. We reveal how much you can realistically make from each site and share some helpful tips to maximise your profit.

Legit online survey websites

Each site has a limited number of surveys each month for each person. If you want to earn serious rewards it’s worth signing up to as many as possible.

  1. Toluna

    Test, keep products and earn vouchers.

    Who are they? A trusted opinion website working on behalf of leading companies. They want to know what you think about certain products, services and issues. In return, you get rewarded!

    Rewards: Free products, Amazon vouchers and prize draws.

    Amount per survey: 3,000 – 6,000 points (80,000 points gets you a £15 voucher).

    Min. reward threshold: 500 for prizes, 80,000 for vouchers.

    Our review:

    You won’t be sent products to test all the time, but we have received a couple over the space of a few months. So it’s worth signing up just to get freebies

    You can also answer surveys on the site to earn yourself points which equal vouchers. Each survey takes around 15 minutes to complete, so it’ll take around 4 hours overall to earn a voucher.

    Our review:

    We love Swagbucks, and we hear positive reviews from our followers about them too. We’ve found that completing surveys and polls every day provides the best return for your time, however you can also complete a much wider range of offers to bump up your earnings.

    Surveys take around 10 minutes to complete, meaning you can earn around £2.40 an hour. Swagbucks also offers users the ability to complete surveys from multiple providers and give consolation points when you don’t qualify for a survey.

    Vivatic is a great survey site. Surveys take about 15 mins to complete so it could take you a little while to reach the threshold but the good news is that there’s plenty more extra money making opportunities that they have so well worth a sign up.

    OnePoll were one of the first survey sites around and they’ve always got quick and fun surveys to answer. Look out for the surveys about celebs.

    The surveys usually take around 10 minutes and are pretty easy to complete. You have to be as honest as possible as they have a “strike system”. 3 bad surveys and you’re out (we like to see it as a challenge).

    They’re a well trusted site that work with top brands and well worth joining through our link for a £3 bonus when signing up. Make sure you complete your profile too. Plus their site is a lot more snazzy than a lot of the others…
