Can I make money taking surveys online? The answer is yes, but it will not take place of a part-time job. For the most part, surveys pay on the average $ 1-5.00, sometimes you get lucky and they have a product test (they send you a product to try in you home to get your opinion) or a focus group ( an hour long online group that pays $ 25.00 or more.) There are also survey companies that pay you in points which can be redeemed for cash or gift cards. So if you have extra time and want some extra money, try taking surveys. I love taking surveys while I watch TV. It is amazing how quickly the money from surveys adds up. Most months I make $50- $250. Here is a list of places that I take surveys with. I have also received money from them. Just sign up and then the companies will start sending you emails to take surveys. I usually get several emails a day. Sometimes I get so many that I don't have time to take them all.
