Earn Holiday Money Doing Surveys!

by Nicole on October 29, 2009

I have posted many times about doing online surveys but wanted to highlight surveys as a money-making opportunity as we enter the holiday season! Everyone can always use a few extra bucks so take some time when you’re at home in your pjs, on the phone, or even watching TV and take a few surveys!

Here are my top 5 tips for taking online surveys:
1. Sign up with as many survey companies as possible. I’m going to highlight my top 6 in this post but you’ll want to check out the surveys link on my blog to find more.
2. Use a separate email address for just surveys. That way your personal email inbox won’t get overwhelmed! Schedule times each week for doing surveys.
3. Know that you won’t always qualify for every survey. You’ll never know what the demographic they are looking for is so just keep doing them!
4. Keep track of earnings and cash out frequently. Each company handles payment different. Keep a spreadsheet of each company’s cahs out threshhold and method. Choose Paypal for the quickest payment.
5. Do the higher value surveys from the companies you do the best with first. As you do more surveys, you’ll get to know which companies you do the best with. Choose these surveys first, from highest value to lowest value. Be strategic in the order you complete the surveys in your inbox.

Interested in signing up for surveys? My top 6 survey companies currently are:
1. My Survey
2. HCD Surveys
3. Opinion Outpost
4. Ipsos-I-Say
5. Pinecone Research
6. Say Nation

Check out the other survey companies I have blogged about previously.

I found out about your website from Woman’s World magazine. I am a 56 year old retired 5th grade teacher and am interested in working from home and wanted to make sure I didn’t get into any scams. Are the surveys legit? I am open to suggestions. I see from the magazine article that you have made a big success with your at home work. Congrats to you.

Brenda – Yes, the surveys are legit, I would not post them otherwise! I only post about survey companies I have personally been a member of. Try clicking on the “surveys” tab on the top of my blog, it will take you to all of the posts I have written about the many survey companies I am a member of.

I read about your blog in Woman’s World and you have an amazing blogsite. I can tell you put a lot of thought and effort in what you do and I’m enjoying looking into the other sites you advertise. I appreciate the fact that it involves coupons, giveaways, and all the others things most of us look for online. I will be looking into the survey sites as the ones I have tried before were nothing more than trying to get me to sign up for their products. Thanks for the above tips on surveys!

Hi Linda: Check out the survey section of my blog, it lists all of the companies I have actually done surveys for. Also, you could try the online offers or mystery shopping tabs. Let me know if you have any other questions!
