As much as I love doing surveys panels and answering easy peasy questions about myself for MONEY – there are a lot of survey panels that are an absolute waste of time.
They give you the runaway, ban, or move up minimum withdraw just to keep your work for free. Gross, right?
Thankfully there are exceptions to this and here are the best consumer market research websites that will pay you cash.

This is not an extensive list but here are the guys I found to be the most reputable, user-friendly, support friendly, and painless to cash out with.
Panels Still Worth Doing:
Survey Junkie is a market research company that lets you take lots of surveys, focus groups, all the while being compensated for
I met parts of their US team in a convention and asked them how they differed compared to the 500 other random survey websites out there. Their outreach department specified that they focus on building
If you are limited by time to only a few kinds of survey sites, sign up for Survey Junkie. The user experience will save you headaches.
They currently hold a Trustpilot trust score of 8.7. All SJ members must be 13+ or older and located within US, Canada, or Australia.
Global Test Market is another survey website that gives opinion surveys for rewards. It’s the largest leading online panels in the world with 5.5 million registered users. Usually, Global Test Markets will email you surveys you will most likely qualify for about 95% of the time. They paid $1.50 or more per survey (converted from their point system.) All members are entered into monthly cash prizes and sweepstakes.
Checking your email for the surveys they target is the way to go – easy money.
Global Test Market is completely free. You must be 14+ years old to join. Points can be redeemed to PayPal once you have hit the minimum payout of $50.
Another suggestion is to try out Vindale Research where product developers are willing to $5 to $75 for completed surveys. Vindale pays out through PayPal with a Trustpilot score of 8+
Swagbucks is one of the oldest survey earning websites around. It’s also a big name in online surveys. Typically you can expect at least $50 payout from them in a few weeks but it’s possible to ring down $200 in a month.
They are mainly a get-paid-to-click website. Downloading their app can bring you $30 extra per month but can be a hit or miss.
I did Swagbucks to supplement my Mechanical Turk income as a student a few
Not all Swagbucks surveys are worth doing but some SB surveys are gems. Check your email for good offers as well as your Swagbucks inbox.

Opinion Outpost is another survey panel. They do not pay as well as other survey websites but it is REALLY easy to do them so it’s on this list of Great Hits.
They email you surveys that you will qualify for so there is no “legwork” in looking for work. The surveys are short and easy so it’s a great option to do them casually.
One trick is to pay attention to points and choose surveys of at least 15 or more points since you can only do 5 surveys every 12 hours.
Opinion Outpost is owned by Survey Rewards LLC which also owns QuickThoughts below but you can still participate in both.
QuickThoughts is a website that pays for completed surveys and location dependent tasks. It has been in business since 2013. It’s one of the better s
You can make $3-4 dollars a day from random surveys with QuickThoughts pretty quickly too. But
QuickThoughts also owns several different survey websites and you are not allowed to be part of them while being part of QuickThoughts. Including “E-Rewards” and “Valued Opinions” so avoid these two.
Their phone number is +1 203-567-7200 with live phone rep and hours are 9 AM – 5 PM.
YouGov lets you earn points for surveys and the points convert to gift cards and cash. It operates online panels of over 6 million users across 38 countries.
It’s usually on the topic of political affairs, media, and news to analyze public opinion. Surveys are open to US residents 13+ years old or older and most surveys are only 3 to 7 minutes long.
The interface is easy like Survey Junkies and the site loads seamlessly, even on my old phone. The pay is fair for how easy and non-painful the questions are and they always ask you to give feedback on the survey itself which demonstrate care.
For citizens of the U.K. you must use this link 🙂.
