InboxDollars’ paid emails are worth $0.5 each. You usually get 2-3 paid emails a day.

14) Take online surveys

Market research is all about finding and satisfying the consumer’s needs and preferences. And where best to gauge these than from the consumers themselves?

This is why many big brands look for your opinion about their products and services.

All you have to do is fill out online survey forms.

You can also test new products in exchange for rewards in kind and in cash.

Although not among the most exciting ways to make money online, surveys are one of the quickest and easiest. However, to make a lot of money with them, you’ll have to join many survey sites. And we’re giving you a good enough list below.


The first thing to do is open a new email account to direct all survey mails there. This is because you’ll be inundated with daily survey emails and you don’t want this in your main email box.

A paid survey site acts as an intermediary between you and the companies. They get the contracts from the companies and it is on their sites that you will sign up to take the online surveys.

Now, have you got some spare time? Are you keen on saving up a stash of cash for that weekend treat, or even a family outing? And you want to know which paid survey sites are legitimate?

Here are best sites to make money with online surveys to consider:


This list does not constitute our endorsement of any of them in any way whatsoever. We are also not linked to any single of them in any way. Although those sites are reputed best sites to make money with online surveys, we recommend your due diligence in dealing with them.

Surveys have become an increasingly popular way for people to earn free money online in their spare time. These include students, stay-at-home moms, casual workers and even the unemployed.

Survey taking online can be fun as a legitimate way to earn money from home online and bring a little profit.

But be careful! There are a lot of scams here.

Learn to avoid any scams by refusing to pay an upfront fee or other charges.

But if you do your due diligence, you could easily pocket around $100 a month. Just for spending two hours a week taking surveys. This gives you extra pin money. In addition, you would collect all kinds of gift cards and other prizes.

Does it sound easy as A, B, C? Know that with survey taking you don’t need any advance knowledge. You don’t also need excellent writing skills or any other special qualifications. You just need to share your opinion. That’s all!

As you already know, you can’t expect big paydays with taking online surveys. Payouts are only pennies to a few dollars per survey. But they are good as pocket change.

You may be wondering: “Will my opinion really count for a company?”

Of course! Don’t underestimate your opinion, you could change the world!

Companies welcome both positive and negative feedbacks. This open-mindedness in accepting different types of opinions is valuable for their product research and development.

This is what helps them to design a better product or improve the current one.

Another of your worries may be if it isn’t risky to venture into taking paid surveys. This is because of what you’ve heard about websites that scam people away for their hard-earned money.

The answer is yes and no.

One blogger said he was not particularly fond of the whole online survey thing since he had a bad experience using CashCrate.

On the other hand, I had already warned you to be careful when considering the companies to work for. If in doubt, check them through Google search with words like “Is X scam”, “Is X legitimate”, “X reviews”.

Check to see if there are any complaints about them, especially with the Better Business Bureau. Search for reviews. Ask in forums. The possibilities to separate the wolves in sheep’s clothing from the sheep are endless.

But generally scam websites most likely would ask you to “invest” in something before making any money. However, a legit paid survey site wouldn’t ask you for any credit card information because they’re Free to Join.
