If you are in need of extra cash, you definitely should try online surveys. I have received a few checks and PayPal payments from online surveys, which proves to me that paid surveys are legit. You just need to do your research to find the survey programs that are not scams. There are several online sites that list legit surveys as well as those that you should avoid. Before you sign up for surveys, check out the web site Survey Police. This is a great website with a wealth of information about different survey companies. Survey Police helps you identify online survey scams by listing the survey companies that have been verified and nonverified. I cannot say enough good things about this site, which is a great resource for those who wish to complete surveys. You should never pay to join paid survey sites or to take paid surveys. Advertisers should pay you for your honest opinions.
You can easily make money from the comfort of your home once you have signed up for a few surveys. The more survey sites you join, the more money you will make. For example,
Cash Crate, they offer 2 daily surveys that pay 80 cents each. You do not have to enter any information or sign up for anything. Some survey sites give cash, rewards, points and/or entry into their sweepstakes to win prizes.
You can make anywhere from $100-$300 a month doing Surveys. Now don’t get me wrong, it does take some time to get started because some of them take 2-6 weeks to pay after completing but once you get started the money will start coming in slowly but surely. Always check your email and the survey sites for available surveys. In your spare time, you could be earning that extra cash in no time. This is truly a great way to earn money by giving your opinion on something.

- Be sure you fill out your member profiles and keep them up-to-date. The amount of surveys you will receive depends on your profile and the current studies being conducted, but in general you should expect to receive at least 4 to 6 invitations per month from each survey site.
- You should never pay to join a paid survey site.
- The more survey sites you join, the more money you will make.
