The 30 Best Paid Survey Sites That Actually Pay!

Are You Looking For Legitimate Survey Panels That Will Pay You Cash For Your Opinion. Here's 30 that actually pay!Most of the posts on my website are about online job reviews. Lately I have done too many reviews on sites that make you pay for a list of the best paid survey sites. Personally I think that is ridiculous, and in the reviews I tell people to just Google it and find survey sites that way. Well after doing some research I could not find any good free lists of survey sites, so I decided to create one myself.

I have put together a list of the best 30 paid survey sites on the internet. All of these sites are available for people who live in the US and some are even Worldwide. I don’t use all of these surveys nor have I signed up for all of them, but I did my research and the following 30 survey sites are legit!

Now I am not like the people, I am not putting this list together to get as many referrals as possible. Like I said above I am not a member to most of these sites, but just to level the playing field if you sign up for the following sites you will become my referral: Cash Crate, Inbox Dollars, Send Dollars, Paid Viewpoint, Clixsense, and SwagBucks. If you don’t want to become my referral and earn me money that is fine, I am just here to help. There are plenty of other sites on this list to choose from!

Before we get into the list just keep in mind that there is not a whole lot of money in paid surveys. I personally recommend other ways to make money on the internet, but I do use survey sites as a side income.

Now Let Us Begin! These sites are in no particular order, click on the name to go to the sites homepage!

The 30 Best Paid Survey Sites

  1. CashCrate: (FAVORITE) Was founded in 2006 and offers many other ways to make money other than surveys. Without a doubt one of my favorite survey sites and I have been paid by them multiple times. You can see my Cash Crate Review Here.
  2. Swag Bucks: (Favorite) is one of the newer legit survey sites around. Surveys is just one thing they offer, Swagbucks has tons of different ways to earn cash. I have been paid over $100 in Amazon Gift Cards by Swagbucks. You can see my SwagBucks Review here!
  3. Clixsense: (Favorite) is a site that has surveys and pays you to visit sites. They also have a great referral program. Clixsense surveys are great, but I also promote this website has the best paid to visit sites website. You can see my review on Clixsense here!
  4. Paid Viewpoint: (Favorite) Paid viewpoint is my favorite pure survey site. Paid Viewpoint does not have any other ways to earn other than surveys, but the big advantage with them is they only send you surveys that your pre qualified for. No more trying surveys to only be rejected! You can see my Paid Viewpoint Review here!
  5. Send Earnings:  is a site that offers surveys and almost everything thing else you can think of. It’s big claim to fame is paying you to read emails. SendEarnings parent company is Inbox Dollars which I prefer, but either one is a good option. Read my Send Dollars review here!
  6. Inbox Dollars: As stated above Inbox Dollars is the parent company of Send Earnings. They are the same thing except for a few minor changes. I prefer Inbox Dollars, but you can decided for yourself. Read my Inbox Dollars Review Here!
  7. Survey Savvy:is a site that only offers paid surveys. It has been around for a while and is a well-known survey site with a great reputation. Survey Savvy is one of the best paying survey sites on the internet.
  8. Toluna: is a site that only offers paid surveys. This is another well trusted site around the web and is a great site to join to get high quality paid surveys.
  9. Harris Poll: is another great online survey site. They are well trusted around the web and have excellent support.
  10. Fusion Cash (Favorite)Offers many ways to earn including Surveys. Makes payments via PayPal, Direct Deposit, and Mailed Check.
  11. Earning Station: Offers many ways to earn including Surveys. Has a Low cash out amount.
  12. Mysurveyis one of the highest ranking survey sites with the BBB if that means anything to you. Excellent surveys and proof of payment. Great site to get involved with.
  13. VIP Voice (Favorite)is run by the highly trusted research NPD group. This site is reputable and easy to use.
  14. Opinion Central: is run by insight express and is a great paid survey site. You will have to cash in your points for items, but still a good company to take surveys with. 
  15. I-Poll (Favorite): is a relatively new survey site that actually has an extremely useful mobile app. Surveys and tasks can be completed on the app. Without a doubt best site to join if your going to want to use your phone!
  16. Opinion Outpost is an extremely trusted survey site, that always pays on time and offers some good surveys. One I recommend joining!
  17. Zoom PanelZoom Panel lets you earn points and cash them in for rewards. This survey site is highly trusted and proof of payment is all over the internet.

  29. Valued OpinionsGet paid in prizes for taking surveys
  30. CVS AdvisorYou will only get contacted a few times a year, but these surveys have to do with shopping within CVS stores!

There you go. Above is the top 30 Survey Sites on the Internet, like I mentioned above I am not a member of all these sites, but I did do my research when putting this list together. All are completely safe and will pay you!

I highlighted a few sites above as sites that I found to be best of the top 30.

Please keep in mind that the money you can make taking surveys is always blown out of proportion throughout the internet. It is possible to make a hundred extra bucks a month through taking surveys, but I believe the pay per hour is not good enough.

Although I do recommend some survey sites I like to let people know that there is no way to get rich off a survey income and there are better ways to make money online other than surveys.

I happen to blog and build websites for a living. You can learn more about that process for free at Start A Profitable Blog. 

I hope you call enjoyed my list of the best 30 survey sites online. Feel free to join as many or few as you would like.

I have not really been able to make good money taking surveys. Just pocket money. Do you have any idea how I can make a lot of money via paid surveys? I know I cannot be rich, but at least good cash that can keep me going. Any idea will be fine.

    Brok - June 13, 2016

    Honestly survey sites are just going to be extra income. There’s not really any survey site that pays much higher. If you’re interested in making more money online, I recommend checking out How To Start A Profitable Blog!

Survey advice - May 14, 2016

As you know, there are lot of scam survey sites online and many more keep coming. Some may decide to pay you once and scam you once they realized you have trusted them. To avoid scam and join legitimate survey sites, you must:

1. Not pay to join. Any survey site that asks you to pay before joining is a big scam. Paid survey is free everywhere.

2. Research about a particular site before join. Just google the “name of site + Scam” and you will be able to read all people are saying about the site. If there are lots of complaints,that shows they are not sincere, pls, stay away.

3. Search for their payment proof online. Using Google image search and Search for eg, “Cashcrate scam” and it will bring you all their payment proofs if there is. If not, stay away.

4. Make sure you read their term of services before joining to avoid making any mistake that might cost you your hard earn money.

Hope this helps. Wish you all the best.

Thanks for the extra ones that I haven’t joined, though you listed Harris Poll twice #9 and #20, and Opinion Central is questionable. But it’s not listed as a favorite, so I’m good on that…lol. Can’t wait till your next blog.

    Thanks for the comment, some of the sites on list I highly recommend you joining!


tony - March 5, 2015

I have tried almost every survey and points for prizes sites and most of them suck. I did find one good site and its the only one that I use. They give you 250 points just for signing up and thats enough points to order one of their prizes without even doing anything. When I first joined I ordered a $ 1.00 bill for 100 points and in about 2 weeks I recieved it. I then started doing surveys and watching videos to earn points to buy some cool stuff. You can use your points to get pretty much anything that you want from Amazon or you can get gift cards or use your points at their gift shop. You can also earn cash that can be sent to your paypal or by a check. I love this site

    Brok - March 5, 2015


    I actually just wrote a review on Points2Shop just a few days ago. It’s not published yet, but will be out in mid April.

    I have to agree that this site is very good and I as well received my $1 bill in the mail!

    I will probably update it on my list of sites because it is a great survey site

    Thanks for sharing your story!

Hi Brok,

Thanks alot for your post. I was at one time scammed by a work at home site.I am in Kenya East Africa. I have checked and noted most surveys are limited to US.Any leads for good open surveys?
Will appreciate your feedback.

Kind regards,


    monumetric - October 27, 2014


    Thanks for the comment. I am not 100% for sure about great survey sites for East Africa. I will have to check and get back with you. I did notice to decided to join WA though. I think that is a great decision and can make you much more money then survey sites.
