Top 10 Ways to Make Money at Home Through Online Surveys

It's been a long time since I've had to supplement my income through participating in online surveys thankfully but if you're in a position where you have some free time and want to earn a little something then online survey's are a great way to make a quick buck and earn rewards in either cash or gift card form.

Top 10 Ways to Make Money at Home Through Online Surveys via Kirsty Girl

Here are my top 10 sites that will allow you to earn by participating in online marketing surveys and research. The sites you like most will be different depending on what you're looking to get out of it, whether you're after Coles, Woolworths or other grocery store gift cards to help pay for food week to week or gift cards to treat yourself at your favourite clothes shops or of course a little extra cash to help pay the bills. On many of the sites you can also choose to donate your points to charities. I also know many people that use the gift cards they earn at Christmas time to give as presents. Clever!

Most of these survey sites also enter you into competitions. Some sites you can put your points into more tickets into sweepstakes or you'll be entered automatically without giving up any points.. each site is different in that respect but I have won my choice of an iPhone, iPad or cash prize before without giving up any points. Lucky me!

NOTE: Some of the links are to the Australian versions of these sites however most of them have US, UK and European etc. sister sites so be sure to still check the link if you're interested and click over to change your international settings.

Valued Opinions
Each survey you complete will earn you points. Surveys are usually around the 20 minute mark and earn you $3.00AU. Once you've reached the $20 mark you can take out your cash in the form of a gift card, simply choose the card you want.

Gift Cards (Australian): Supercheap Auto, iSubscribe, Hoyts, Rebel, Dymocks, Woolworths, Bunnings, Coles, Sanity, iTunes, JB Hi-Fi, Wow HD, eFragrance, Myer, the Iconic, Deals Direct and XBox Live.

Global Test Market
This site while still a good way to earn a little something seems to have less earning potential from my experience.
Cash Out: Yes (Paypal)
Gift Cards (US): Kohls, Amazon, Macy's and more

Again, slightly less earning potential here as many of the surveys are very quick. The more time consuming the more points you normally accumulate.

Toluna has to be my favourite as I won $715 from them a couple of years back. Thank you Toluna!
