Earning by answering questions on surveys.

#1
There are many companies now who will either pay you by PayPal or more often, by sending you a gift certificate, just for answering survey questions. This is an easy thing, and just about anyone can do this and make a little extra money, or get a gift certificate for Amazon, Walmart, or somewhere else that you like to shop.

Some survey companies only accept applicants with the right background for the survey that they are conducting. For instance, if the survey is about baby products, they want a response from people who have a baby. This means that you can start a survey and then be eliminated because you do not qualify for what the company is looking for as a respondent. Other surveys seem to be open to anyone who wants to take the survey.

Usually, you only make a few cents, or earn a few points towards a gift card, for each survey that you do; but it does not take much time, and it is interesting to answer surveys. Answering surveys are not going to make any kind of a livable income for anyone, but it is a good way to make a little extra cash and get some easy gift cards for places you like to shop.

It's true that Paid surveys can be a great way of earning extra cash but there are also paid survey sites that have both positive and negative side. Yes, there may be surveys you can do in just five minutes or some that require a bit more time but there are also surveys that you can’t participate and you end up wasting your time because it ended up saying that you're not qualified. Most paid surveys are based in specific geographical locations.

I started answering surveys a decade ago and at first, it was just for fun. But after some time I noticed that most of the surveys were scams, those that have a high withdrawal threshold and or gives out bonus registration money are mostly scam survey sites that won't pay you a cent.

There are bad sites which when I'm about to reach the withdrawal threshold or I have reached it already and I'm trying to withdraw the money to my PayPal, would suddenly logged me out and blocked my account.

Nowadays I'm doing surveys only with one reliable company, which is AIP-Rakuten, I've been earning $5-$6 per month on this survey site for years and they credit the money in my PayPal after 30 days from date of withdrawal. The crediting of payout takes a very long time but atleast it's a legit site that pays.

On the internet, there are probably as many scam/non-paying sites as there are legitimate ones, and I think that a person just has to look through them and find the ones that work for each of us.

As I mentioned, I don’t think that answering survey questions is ever going to be a significant way of earning money; but every little bit helps, and taking surveys can also be very interesting.

Many of them pay with Amazon gift cards, and since I shop on Amazon a lot, this is basically just the same as earning cash for me.
I just received a $15 Amazon gift card from You.gov, which is one of my favorite survey companies.

When they send you a survey to complete, you always qualify for the survey, unlike some companies who will ask you to spend 5-10 minutes filling out qualifying information, only to tell you that you do not fit the type of respondent that they are looking for; Another thing that I enjoy is testing products and writing a review of them.

Even though you do not actually earn cash for testing the product, you are being given a product that you want, and that costs to purchase it; so, in away, you are being paid to try the product and write a review of it.

I can agree with that. I tried doing survey stuff a few years ago, and they pay almost nothing, and there are more scam sites out there then legit sites and these scam sites want you to do the work, then they never pay you, while they use your survey with a legit site, and get paid, otherwise, if the scammer was not getting paid by some legit source, then there would be no reason for survey scammer sites to be in business.

There's this relatively new

I'm recommending the survey site AIP Rakuten, their legit and you can cash out at $5. It takes me a month or 2 to cash out. Last year I made $50 in that site, not much for a whole year but it's okay I just do my surveys about 10 to 15 mins 3x a week.
