Which survey sites should I start with?

You’re interested in earning some extra money online, but you’re not sure where to start.  You don’t know which sites are legitimate and which are scams.  Which sites are good earners, which ones are slow…

Here are our top earners.  We only recommend sites that we personally have used and cashed out from several times.  That way, we know whether a site is legitimate or whether it’s not going to pay out.

Swagbucks

18+ or 13+ with parental consent

USA/Canada/UK/Ireland/Australia/France/Germany/India

Swagbucks is one of our favourite sites.  They allow anyone 13 & up to join, as long as they live in one of the eligible countries: USA, Canada, UK & Ireland, Australia, Germany or India.

There are lots of ways to earn on Swagbucks.  You can complete surveys, watch videos, play games, and more.

  1. Sign up by clicking on the image below to be eligible for a 300 SB ($3/£2ish) bonus.
    N.B. Do NOT sign up using Facebook.  It breaks the tracking and you won’t be eligible for the bonus.
  2. Confirm your email address
  3. You have until 23:59 PT on the last day of the current month to earn 300 SB from tasks to get the bonus.  If it’s near the end of the month you may want to wait until 1st of the following month to sign up so you have an entire month to earn the bonus.  Click here to read more about how you can earn the bonus.

That’s it. It’s really easy, and Swagbucks is completely real.  We all use is, and earn at least £100 a month from Swagbucks alone.  We usually cash out for Amazon or Mastercardvouchers, but there are many other options, including PayPal.

instaGC has fast become one of my favourite sites.  They allow anyone 13 & up to join, as long as minors have permission from their parents or guardians.

There are lots of ways to earn on instaGC.  You can complete surveys, watch videos, play games, and more.  I find earning from videos (passive income) on instaGC easier than running them on Swagbucks.

Branded Surveys (MintVine)

18+ or 13+ with parental consent

USA/Canada/UK

 

 

Branded Surveys (MintVine) is similar to Swagbucks.  They allow anyone 13 & up to join, as long as they live in one of the eligible countries: USA, Canada or the UK.

There are lots of ways to earn on Mintvine.  You can complete surveys, watch videos, play games, and more.  We make sure to do the daily poll (after 3pm) and then do a couple of surveys or leave videos running.

  1. Sign up by clicking on the image above
  2. Confirm your email address
  3. Take your first survey

We usually cash out for PayPal but there are many other options including a variety of vouchers.



Be aware that due to the way that the surveys work, i.e. due to demographics, you will get disqualified often, especially in the beginning.  Once you’ve attempted several surveys, the providers will know better which ones to offer you, so the disqualifications may reduce.

Don’t get discouraged, you will get there, it just takes a little time when you start.
