This week I signed up for several new survey companies which I will tell you about soon. I’d like to check them out to verify that they award points and pay as promised before posting about them. There is one site that I will share with parent of children ages 6-13 years old. If your little one wants to share their opinion about kid friendly topics www.kidzeyes.com is a great site. My children have taken an interest in surveys ever since they began receiving FREE products to test. It’s real easy for kids to earn their first $10. Just for signing up and verifying your account you’ll get 500 points which is equivalent to $5. Next just check your inbox for surveys. With Kidzeyes, every survey taken earns reward points just like with MySurvey. My son earned his first $10 this week and is already talking about spending it at Amazon.com.
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 Market Research 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 month of May (so far), I have cashed out $149 cash and gift cards from survey companies and reward sites. ($124 in cash and $25 in gift cards).
These earning are not average for someone just getting started. With time you will begin to determine which surveys are worth your time and which are not. Be patient, but diligent and you will begin to manage your survey time efficiently and earn some extra cash each month.
