Side Hustle Ideas – Make Money with Real Online Survey Companies that Pay

These 29+ survey companies will pay you in cash, gift cards, rewards, and much more plus how to recognize a survey company trying to scam you covered in this article.

Carrying out surveys is how big brand companies around the world gather information from the general public.

This information helps them in the development of their products and services. 

The good news about this is quite a few of these companies offer rewards and incentives for you to complete these surveys, which take an average of 20 – 30 minutes to complete. 

My favorite survey sites are Survey Junkie, Survey Savvy, and Swagbucks.


Compensation is usually in the form of cash, gift cards, points that can be exchanged for cool stuff, or other rewards.

You can sign up for as many companies as you have time to fill out surveys for. There’s no limit.

The companies recommended below are mostly for US residents but there are a few that also accommodate people living outside the US.

A link at the end also provides a rich source of information for survey companies around the world.

If you require a payment method different from PayPal, you can try out Payoneer for international bank transfers.

It’s how I receive money from most of my clients abroad. Learn more about receiving payments via Payoneer here.

Point of Note

While making money from surveys is awesome, there are some companies that are dubious and have no intention of paying you any money and may even try to scam you out of money.

You can detect these sites via the following ways:-

  • They ask for a membership fee.
  • They promise you a certain amount of income.
  • The rewards and/or payment process is unclear.
  • They ask for private financial information such as credit card or bank account info.
  • There’s no privacy/disclosure policy/terms of use.

Trying out these survey sites over time can lead to a good boost in income. It’s not as passive as other methods but it still counts.
