What are paid surveys?

Online paid surveys are self-explanatory. You sign up for survey sites online, complete surveys of your choice, and get rewarded. The survey company rewards you either with cash or a gift card. In most cases, you can earn anywhere between $1 -$5 per survey. And it may take anywhere from 5 – 30 minutes to complete a survey.

Paid survey sites are legitimate, but they should not be considered as a means to get rich quick. While the payouts aren’t very high, it does help you to earn some money. You can participate in online surveys from anywhere, whenever you want.

Can I earn real money from paid surveys?

If by “real” money you mean cash, then yes! And, if you’re invited to participate in a focus group, your earnings could be pretty high. If you don’t receive such survey invitations, another way to earn faster is to take as many surveys as possible throughout the day.

Is there any fine print I need to be aware of?

If the survey sites offer rewards on the basis of a points system, then you’re required to meet a minimum payout threshold. Most minimum payouts range from $5 to $20 or more. Some sites offer sign-up bonuses, but you may have to reach the payout requirement to claim the bonus.
