Taking surveys and participating in market research is a great way to supplement your household income, pay off debt and even increase your savings. I have been earning money taking surveys for several years and have a comprehensive list of legitimate survey companies under the ‘Survey’ tab at the top of this page. From time to time I will feature the details of new companies I find and can send you FREE updates via email of RSS, just be sure to sign up here.
I am signed to about twenty or so survey companies and use them as a way to earn an extra $25 – $200 each month. I have been amazed at how fun and easy it is to do. For the June, I cashed out $66 cash and $25 in gift cards from survey companies and reward sites.
Imagine earning an extra $66 every month for 12 months. And now imagine sending that extra $66 to one of your creditors or adding it to your emergency fund. You will have made close to an $800 change in your financial situation, by just devoting an hour 1-2 days a week taking surveys. Taking surveys are a legitimate way to earn some extra cash each month.
