Legit Survey Places.

Yesterday I had a reader email me asking about the online surveys that I take and subscribe to. Being that it's a pretty long list of actual legit survey places I decided to make a blog about it as best I could.

A lot of people including the blogger who emailed me, look to places such as, it's not to say that they are a scam, but they make it pretty unrealistic to cash out at any point in time. I myself don't like to mess with many places like that, most of the time the surveys don't amount to much and it takes forever to hit the cash out points. Below are a few of my favorite sites, I don't want to post too many at a time as the post will get long winded, so if there is interest in things like this please leave a comment and let me know, I'll try to post surveys that do come up (new ones) as I get them if there is an interest. For now, here's a few below, and I'll do another post later this week with some more for those who are interested.
Right now Standford is closed for new participants, but is a great place where you can earn Amazon Gift Certificates either by a lottery or per survey, it depends on the survey itself, I have gotten a lot of Amazon GC's from here. Keep checking back to see if they open up registrations again for new participants. This is a site you need to not wait for emails on once you are registered with them, check in daily for new surveys.
I've done a bunch of surveys for this places, have always been 'rewarded' with Amazon Gift Certificates. You don't get many surveys, they do come via email when they come out though.
Another great site. They send you surveys via email, they come about once a month, not many but good surveys. I've always been rewarded with Amazon Gift Cards.
You mostly collect points as you do surveys, I get multiple surveys a day usually via email from these guys so your points add up very quickly and you can cash out. Sometimes they also have a $ amount attached to a survey where you'll be guaranteed something like $2, or $5 etc etc. Not very many of them by they do come.
Another great site, I get multiple emails a day from here. Again you earn points and can cash out and request paypal payments, Amazon gift certificates or other various rewards. It's very fast and easy to cash out on your points.
I know when I first signed up for this you had to have a referral, I am all out, I'm not sure if you still have to have one or not, give it a try. I don't get many surveys from these guys, when I do it comes via email. This is the same you earn points per survey and can cash out at $10.00, I've received many checks from them when I do rack up my points.
Really good site, you need to check their site daily as not all emails for surveys do go through. You can earn cash rewards, sweepstakes entries and there is also instant win games. You can receive payment via check or paypal.
I get a lot of surveys from them, usually it's a chance to win an amazon gift certificate or cash prize, easy surveys and I have won gift certificates from them.
I actually won $150.00 from doing their surveys. I don't get them a lot but when you do you are entered to win, or they give away amazon gift certificates.
This is very interesting, I've actually gotten to try a lot of cool new products from here, you can get concert tickets and lots of fun stuff, one to sign up for!
Don't get a whole lot from them, but when I do you collect points that you can eventually cash out.
This is one of my top favorites. I currently get paid $5 survey via paypal, although they are now changing their scale to a sweepstakes entry and a $3 payment via paypal. This is hard to get into, you need to find their banners online, you cannot just join via their site.
One I forgot last minute, I used to do this one a lot, and remembered about it today when I went into an old email account which I had signed up for it with, very legit, I've been paid from them in the past, now to just chance my information to my current email account.

Those are some of my favorites, again like I said above, I'll post some more later in the week if there's interest. Also from time to time I get various separate surveys not with a 'group' that offer cash incentives, if enough people are interested I can post those on the blog when they do come up to give others the opportunity to take advantage and sign up for survey spots.

Very informative post. I use Greenfield Online. The problem is that by the time I check my email to do a survey, they usually have their quota, but I have earned money from them before. Not loads, but some.

I don't recommend one called Bond Rewards. You have to buy stuff to earn something, so you're not really earning anything.

I'm going to check out UT since I live in Texas. Thanks for a great post!

This is really really good information! Thanks! There are several that I haven't heard of so I really appreciate this. I'm going to check some out tonight.

Do you do e-rewards? I get a lot of great gift cards from them and MyPoints! Those are really working for me. I'd like some that offer monetary awards though, but the gift cards really come in handy for buying clothes, eating out or office supplies. Really whatever is needed. I'm trying to save enough MyPoints to get a high value gift card to Lowes so I can do some stuff around the house!

Thanks again!

Thanks, Gina!
I've always wanted to get in to this but never had the time to research the companies myself. This will save me a whole lot of time. And, I'll check out the ones that Petula talked about.

Really appreciate it!
