If you’re looking for a quick ‘n simple way to earn a little extra income from home, check out this list of legitimate online survey companies.
I have had some readers lately emailing me to ask about which survey companies are legit or worth their time. So today I wanted to list out some of the top rated survey companies, and some of the ones I have tried personally and know to be great. Most of these survey companies offer a cash payment, while others offer both cash and/or prizes!
Note: You should NEVER have to pay to join a survey company. Never ever. Also – it’s a good idea to set up a separate email account for your surveys as you will get a lot of emails.
Now you’re not going to be able to quit your job, or become a millionaire from doing these but it’s always nice to get checks in the mail, free gift cards, and some extra gas, grocery, and shopping money!
