Earn hundreds a month in extra income with these free sites

Do you fill out surveys online? Do you take surveys for cash? Do you like to get paid for filling out internet surveys by PayPal? Do you like to get paid for filling out surveys by check? Do you like the idea of making money from home or wherever you log onto the internet in your spare time?

I have been doing surveys long enough to have seen many low quality sites, been rejected from surveys, paid to join a site and been ripped off, done surveys to never get paid for them etc. I still love surveys though and I decided to help other people to navigate beyond the bad sites to the promised land.

The sites below are all free to join and use. Most offer some bonus money just to register. Most offer payment through PayPal, the best type in my opinion. But most importantly of all, I have joined, used and successfully cashed out with all of them. So I know they are for real and can confidently promote them to you.

Look through the list and choose a few. Register, confirm and fill out the profile sections to qualify yourself for surveys. Then take some time to get to know the sites. Take the surveys you are interested in or invited to. Decline the surveys you don’t think are worth the time or seem boring. Quit the sites you do not enjoy and sign up for a new one in its place. Stay active and find your groove. I average $12-15 an hour while doing this. But that took time. So start joining sites, and good luck!

Is InstaGC a good site to earn extra income online?

I found this site late last year. I have a few referrals and try to click some ads a few times a week. I have redeemed $15.20 in direct deposit to my bank account and $35 in iTunes egift cards in the seven months I have been active on the site. I know I could easily make $1 a day if I spent any time on the site at all. Usually I make a push right before I get to the cash out amount but try to explore the site for opportunities at least a few times a week. Here are my stats.

InstaGC stats

InstaGC makes it very easy to navigate the site and they have a great live chat window for members going all the time on the right side of the screen. Below that is a ticker that details offers paying out to members at that moment. This is a really neat combo to talk to other users about what easy money there is on the site at that time and see the ticker to follow what offers are paying out. I have followed conversations in the chat with advise that yielded great results.

InstaGC homepage

One of the best things about InstaGC is that it is completely free to use. By not spending money on a membership to the site, I don’t have to feel bad if I neglect to visit, and I don’t feel like I absolutely have to earn a certain minimum amount on the site each day, week or month.

I make additional passive income on InstaGC by recruiting referrals to join the site. For every person you get to register to the site you earn ten cents to your account. In addition, you will earn a commission of 10% on everything that your referral earns on the site. So the member I signed up under has earned almost a dollar a month from my activities on the site. Now imagine if you have 100 or even 1000 referrals. That is a great potential passive income opportunity there. Well, InstaGC provides an easy link for just that purpose. They want you to attract users to their site and have structured the payout this way to help keep the site growing. Share your link in Facebook groups, on Google +, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Linkdin, blog comments, forums, anywhere you can think of and start making serious money from referrals.

If you think you might be interested in making a little easy money or put in some time and effort to try making a substantial amount, InstaGC is worth a free look. Register here.

What does the free PTC site NeoBux have to offer?

Paid surveys and more

NeoBux pays out over $100,000 a day to members.

They promptly pay by PayPal or Payza with as low as a $2 minimum payout.

If you are looking to make some extra income online, especially without spending any money to do so, give NeoBux a try and you could be making money every day passively with referrals and by clicking ads.

NeoBux has a nice feature where you can rent referrals. So the idea is that if you refer someone to the site you get a portion of their click earnings. But if a member decides to sell their referrals or becomes inactive their referrals get put into a pool. Then members can rent these referrals for a period of time, earning the commission from their clicks during the rental period. In this way you can invest your earnings into more and more rentals, increasing your daily totals as you earn…

Website review – Harris Poll Online

Have you heard of Harris Poll Online? They are a Nielson company, the people who do the television ratings. Read this review to learn more about the site and what they offer to members.

The Nielson Group has been in business for over 50 years. They presently work with 74 of the Fortune 100 companies and over 500 public relations firms including all of the top 20 in the world. Harris Poll Online accepts members from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Spain and Germany.

Harris Poll Online is a straight forward survey site at first glance. You register, confirm your email and are offered your first survey, in my case worth 100 HIpoints. From then on, you will be invited by email to surveys in categories such as consumer, technical, banking, healthcare, automotive, lifestyle and political. If you accept a survey but do not qualify to complete it, you will still get a small compensation for your time.

Harris Poll Online offers members opportunities to complete online surveys and focus groups (chat room style or bulletin board style), telephone and direct mail to in person focus groups and personal interviews. They also periodically offer members the opportunity to participate in research that requires software to be downloaded to your computer or mobile phone. These special activities are completely optional but offer a great new way to provide your opinions and earn more rewards.

We all complete paid online surveys for various reasons but the rewards are key to why we keep coming back. Harris Poll Online offers gift cards from major retailers, magazine subscriptions and charitable donations. You will receive HIpoints for completing surveys, and then have an opportunity to claim your reward in the rewards section of the site.

You can register to join Harris Poll Online here.

3 simple ways to qualify for more surveys from free sites online

Have you tried taking paid surveys online but struggle with being disqualified from most? You are not alone but there are simple strategies that you can employ to reduce this frustration.

1) Make sure your profile information is completely filled out
When you register and join a free survey site, in most cases they will ask you to fill out details about yourself. These might be called demographic surveys, portrait surveys, or profile surveys. You can access this information under your account info.

Info that is relevant to matching you up with a survey is found here. It often includes your income bracket, your purchase habits, your family or living situation and more. When corporations want opinions they are not just looking for anyone off the street. For example, if a food manufacturer wants to know how people will react to a new design on their box they want the opinion of the primary shopper in the household. This is the person that holds the purchasing power and needs to be consulted with.

Periodically check your profile information on your active sites and make sure it is accurate. When you get asked what model and year car you have in a survey screener and your answer is inconsistent with your profile inf, chances are you just lost an opportunity to finish the survey. These companies are looking for all kinds of people but they need consistent reliable answers to trust you.

2) Do not wait to take a survey when invited
When you get an email inviting you to a survey, likely so did thousands of other people. Some of those people have a similar demographic profile to yours. When a survey is commissioned by a corporation or industry a certain mix of demographics is wanted. So if there are 1000 hispanic women between 50-65 that belong to the site and only 100 are wanted for this particular survey, then the first 100 to complete the survey get compensated. If you are number 101 or later you will be told that ‘the quota is filled’ or ‘this survey is closed’.

If you answer that invitation as soon as you can, you have greatly increased your chances of getting in before it is too late. This will be a huge boost for your bottom line while taking surveys.

3) Find another quality site to join
Survey sites are all different. Some are just not good and do not value their customer. Often these bad actor sites make you answer dozens of questions, taking you to near the end of the survey and then ‘disqualify’ you. Then they take all that information you freely gave them and sell it as market research themselves! No survey was even commissioned by an outside corporation. This site is designed to take as much info from you as they can and you are just a number to them. These are the sites that give the industry a bad name. Do you have a feeling you have fallen for this tactic? We all have at some point.

But there is good news, not all sites operate that way. There are real, reputable, honest market research companies out there that value their panelists and treat them with respect. If you feel tossed around, dump that site and never go back! Keep chugging and do not let these bad actors ruin your paid hobby. Once you ferret them out you will get so much more out of the paid survey experience.

Taking paid surveys on free websites can be a very rewarding experience. It is my sincere hope that following the tactics outlined above will increase your satisfaction and decrease the amount of wasted time while doing this. After all, our goal should be to make the most we can in as little time as we can while having fun doing it! Check out my favorite sites here and learn about two sites that never disqualify you once you are invited to a survey here. Good luck and hit the follow button on the right side to get more great tips whenever we publish a new article!

Free survey sites that always let you finish and never turn you away

Have you tried online surveys before? Well if you have, chances are that you have gone through the frustrating experience of trying to take a survey only to answer dozens of questions just to be turned away with nothing to show for it.

It should not be this way. There are some shady characters out there who would take your answers for free and sell them to marketing companies. They profit off of your opinions and rob you of your valuable time in the process.

Most of us get caught in these endless loops at least once in our search for some honest survey opportunities. Usually if I am trying a new site and this happens to me I stop, open a new window and start researching this company even more than I do when I sign up to them. Cut your losses if the general view of this site is not good.

Now I must say that for the headaches that online opportunities sometimes bring, especially free ones, they can be very rewarding if you have a little patience and roll with the punches. If I would have stopped doing surveys after experiencing a few bad apple sites I would have missed out on a very rewarding hobby that I still enjoy and make money doing.

Which brings me to the title of this post. You need not experience this theft of your time while taking paid surveys online and you can avoid it completely if you stick with quality sites.

I belong to a site called VIP Voice. When they invite you to a survey on their site they don’t back out. You get to complete the survey and get your reward. Every time. Now I must caveat that point with VIP. Recently they have been trying to offer more surveys than we are used to. If no survey is available on their site they open up opportunities to go to partner sites for surveys. If you agree to these extra survey offers you will be put through screeners and may be turned down. But if you stick to the VIP Voice site itself then they have your profile nailed down and they pre-qualify you before they invite you to the survey. Great concept, eh?? This is a big reason why I am a loyal user of this site. You can register for free to become a user of VIP Voice here. If you want more detail on the site before you join, read a more detailed review of VIP Voice here.

Another site that will never turn you down during the survey is called Paidviewpoint. Now at Paidviewpoint they even go a step further. Not only will you never be blocked from finishing a survey that you start, you will see how much you are earning with every click, every answer you give. This is a really neat feature of the site and shows you their focus. It is on giving you value in your interaction with them and being very transparent about it. This is the way they operate the entire site as well. Paidviewpoint is free to join and use as well.
Register to become a user of Paidviewpoint here. If you want more info on the site before joining, read a detailed review of Paidviewpoint here.

Are there survey sites that will not deny you half way or even most of the way through the survey? Yes there are, do not let the bad actors stop you from making money online. With experience comes growth just like with any other exercise in life. Thanks for visiting and be sure to follow this blog to keep learning about how to earn money from free websites that offer paid online surveys!

Online income site review – Can I make money at VIP Voice?

Have you heard of VIP Voice?

VIP Voice is an online survey site. When you listen to the news and they say ‘according to a recent survey…’ they are talking about sites like VIP Voice. If you take surveys for money on your computer, this is another site you might want to add to your list of great places to earn rewards.

VIP Voice is free to use. They offer members paid surveys and have a unique system to reward members for their contributions. This site uses a point system for rewards that are then used to bid on merchandise or enter sweepstakes. The more surveys you complete, the more you are rewarded for each one.

VIP Voice feels different from other survey sites. Several things add to this feeling. The first thing you will notice is that when you log on and click on the big ‘Survey Center’ button, you are taken to a screen that shows your recent activity. There is another button called ‘Take Survey Now’. When you click it one of two things will happen. Either you will be shown details on an available survey including the estimated time to complete and compensation…or told that there is no survey available for you to take.

When you first join VIP Voice you will be compensated 50 points for each survey you complete. As you get more completed surveys credited to your account your ranking will move up and eventually the reward for each survey is 200 points.

VIP Voice does not offer cash as a reward. While I normally prefer the green stuff, in this case it is another angle to maximize your earnings. Let me explain. When points are put into your account (instantly upon survey completion) you can do one of two things with them. You can buy sweepstakes entries to win cash or prizes… or bid on items that are up for auction. The items available are constantly changing. As you can see below, in the past 60 days I picked 8 song downloads and sports gear (a Chicago Bears hat).

VIP Bidland winnings

VIP Bidland winnings

These items were won in auctions. As you can see with the song downloads I try to get them for under 300 points but sometimes when you want a new song, you want it now and I have paid way more than that at times. Some of the items offered in the past include ipod shuffles, movie kiosk rentals, restaurant gift certificates, household appliances, bicycles, vacations, phone accessories and much much more.

VIP Voice is always updating the site, adding or upgrading a feature here or there. They have run a ‘drive to 5’ promotion where if you complete at least 5 surveys in a month you get thousands of bonus points with no catch. They have a ‘Pigskin Pick ‘Em’ contest where you choose who you think will win NFL games with cash prizes every week for winners.

This is a fun site that is fun to use, simple but yet always keeps getting better to keep my interest. This site is run by the Toluna Group, a longstanding, well respected market research company. They run a different survey site called Toluna that also offers free product trials. If you take paid surveys online then VIP Voice should be on your list of sites to check out and it just may become one of your favorites too.

Online income site review – Can I make money at Toluna.com?

Have you heard of Toluna.com?

Toluna is an online survey site. Over 21 million people have used this website to answer surveys and test products. If you take surveys for money on your computer, this is a site you are going to want to investigate.

Toluna is free to use. They offer members paid surveys, polls and in-home product testing. This site uses a point system for rewards that can be converted to PayPal or gift cards. Basically 30 points is equivalent to one penny. So 30,000 points gets you ten dollars worth of rewards. They must have some reason to use this system instead of cash values but in the end it makes no difference. When you redeem your points they do turn into cash.

Let’s talk about product testing. This is a great feature of Toluna, since it is mostly a survey site and you rarely find a site that offers in-home testing of new products as well as surveys. Even if I did not take surveys online as a hobby, I would still join and use this feature of the site.

Every week or so you can look under the ‘Explore’ tab and click product testing. This will take you to the product testing screen where you can see any active offers and future offers. I try to visit this page often as I do not want to miss any free offers. After using this site for less than two months I actually received one product to test! I enjoyed the product (mine was worth about five dollars) and the best part is that I got paid to use it as well.

Of course Toluna’s bread and butter are their surveys. They also offer paid polls every day which I always try to click every day on any site that offers them for the free quick money.

On sites that let you search and try any survey that is open like this one does, the more you try the more you will get rejected from. If you are disqualified from a survey in most cases you still get some compensation at Toluna. This is a nice cushion that softens the blow of rejection. Toluna offers a wide variety of surveys that you can take, and they also show you which ones they recommend you try. Only doing the surveys they invite you to should really cut down on you being disqualified.

Once you have some surveys and points under your belt, check out the rewards section. This is a straightforward area of the site and most rewards are offered as retailer gift cards. If you want a PayPal deposit or paper check those are available too. Choose from iTunes, Best Buy, Facebook, Redbox and many more for the gift cards.

I have always gotten prompt payment from Toluna. I usually get the $20 PayPal deposit and have also tried the $10 iTunes credit. Both were delivered without a hitch.

Toluna is overall a very well run site. They have found a good balance between offering many surveys and narrowing it down for people. They are free to join and use, so even if you are just registering for the weekly paid product testing it is worth it. They pay in all the common ways. They have a great reputation in the industry and have been around a long time.

Toluna has a sister site as well. They own and run the VIP Voice survey site. They are both owned by The Toluna Group with US headquarters in Dallas and based out of Paris France.
