How Much Do You Earn Taking Surveys?

Just in case you are interested I want to give you an idea of how easy it is to earn money taking surveys. With just a few hours a week I do something small that makes a huge impact on my finances. The amount you can earn varies and it doesn’t have to take a lot of time.

Total time spent last week taking Lightspeed surveys was 68 minutes. I earned 750 points which is the equivalent of $6.75 an hour. This may seem like a lot of time for minimum wage. But on the other hand I spent 10 minutes taking a survey with  SurveySpot and earned  1,000 points which is equivalent to $10.

The total time spent on Opinion Outpost was 20 minutes. I earned enough points with Opinion Outpost to redeem a $5 gift card or $5 check.

If you are considering taking surveys it does not require a whole lot of time, just a little bit of consistency. Take at least one survey everyday with your favorite survey companies. Soon you’ll begin getting a check  in the mail every month.

Total time spent late week to earn a little over $22 was an hour and a half. If you are interested in which companies I recommend, take a look at my top 11 surveys to be a member of in 2011.
