Processing online surveys is an easy way to earn a few extra bucks. Or so many of us think. The truth is, surveys that pay for your opinion are becoming more and more rare. There used to be many firms that actually paid cash per survey completed, but that number is dwindling…but my research continues and when I come across a company that pays CASH I’ll be sure to add it here.
So, instead of “easy way to earn a few extra bucks”, I should say “points and rewards you can redeem for shopping items at some of your favorite stores; you don’t spend your hard-earned cash your earned elsewhere – you simply redeem your rewards at stores like Amazon, Kohls, Target…” And you may have to process a LOT of surveys to earn a decent amount of points and rewards.
Don’t let this discourage you, though. For extremely simply “work” you can do quite a bit of shopping. And the more you sign-up with, the more you can earn…so-to-speak.
