I regularly take part in paid surveys as a way to make extra cash. In fact last year I paid for our entire Christmas using money and gift cards earned from completing surveys.
Completing Paid Surveys
It’s not everyones cup of tea but surveys can be a great little earner for anyone needing some extra cash. You don’t need any experience or qualifications and you can pretty much start making money as soon as you register. It’s a great way to bridge the gap between payday or save up for a special occasion. You could even use survey earnings to pay off debt or help you to buy a house.
I love having several different side hustles at one time and surveys work well around my other commitments such as matched betting and blogging. I tend to make around £200 each month with surveys and this money goes towards Christmas, birthdays and our family holidays.
Not all survey sites pay particularly well so it’s always best to keep your options open and sign up to a few sites at a time. Ensuring that your profile questionnaires and sign up surveys are complete and kept up to date is really important. This helps the site send you relevant surveys and prevents you getting screened out.
Some of these survey sites will send you regular emails letting you know about relevant surveys, other sites don’t do this. So it’s always a good idea to check your account regularly and not just rely on receiving emails.
