My Top Three Paid Survey Sites – Vindale, Toluna

My top three paid survey sites have been good to me for a very long time.  When I first started doing paid surveys, it took me a while to develop “my favorites” since there are so many companies in this business.

When you are new at something, everything is just an experiment.  However with time you come to like some over others.  I personally like these because they sent me some of the better offers that I enjoyed doing with pay that is equally as good.

No matter which survey companies you choose to work with, the formula to succeed is quite simple and applies to all of them.  It has more to do with your own discipline rather than the survey companies. In fact many of them are the same in many ways.

So if you want to make extra money with paid surveys, here is a simple plan to follow:

Step 1: Sign-up with the higher paying survey companies first and start making money online

Step 2: Continue signing-up with more companies to get more offers and make more money

Step 3: Recruit others to double, triple and even quadruple your monthly checks

My top three paid survey sites are the following:

Vindale Research

This is a neat company.  They are not just a survey company, but rather a company that pays you to try products made by fortune 500 companies and then fill out a feedback survey for them.  Not only do you get paid for your feedback, but you also get to keep the product too!

Make sure you complete your full profile.  The more complete your profile is, the more qualified and high paying offers you will get.

Here is a screenshot I took of my account balance a while back:

Vindale Research Payment

I also love their referral program. Vindale pays you $5 per person you refer to take surveys with them.  This is one of the highest I have ever come across.

You can read my in-depth detailed review of Vindale here.

Your Free Surveys

This company is best known for high quality surveys.  They have screened 215 paid survey sites and have narrowed the list of good ones down to 10.

They provide tips that help you earn more money and not spend more time on each survey than you have to.

I like the $4 bonus that they give you when you join.  I like some of their top 10 sites, which have also made a lot of money for me.  But I have a list of my own which I still think is much better 🙂


This one is for everyone. Teenagers especially love this site because you only have to be 13 to join this company.  They recruit survey takers from all over the world.

I don’t like the fact that they don’t pay cash for surveys.  However, these guys do give out the best prizes for bonus competitions.  Each survey earns you a sweep-stake.  And although many never win anything, I have won a mountain bike in the past as well as an Apple I-pod.

Updated Rules: Earn points worth $1 to $5 each time you qualify for and complete a survey! You’ll also earn for the polls and opinion topics you create! Each time you participate in or complete a survey you’ll be entered into our monthly $4,500 prize draw!

Final Thoughts on Paid Survey Sites

Paid surveys are not everyone’s cup of tea.  Personally, I started taking these to validate a lot of what I was seeing and hearing.  I made, and still make most of my money from paid surveys by recruiting others who are interested in converting their spare time into cash by taking surveys.

I have bigger fish to fry, but the topic deserves a lot of discussion because it has worked very well for me, and is working equally as well and even better for many others. If you’d like to try them, start with the three listed above.

What do you think about paid survey sites and other get paid to offers? Have you had any experience with them? How was your experience?

    Wow, that few is really high pay.
    Gonna try it out and see if really work for me and earn some side pocket money. 😀
    Thanks Sunil for the sharing.

  2. Cool, I’ve never heard of these sites before!

    Those sites look like a good distraction and potentially fun to boot!

    • Sunil says:

      Sure thing – they can be good distraction and potentially fun. It’s certainly not for the desperate who are trying to get the month’s utilities bill paid.

  3. I just signed up with Vindale and now I am checking out the other two.

    • Sunil says:

      Vindale is one of my favorites. If you come across some cool product offers, come back and share them. I have not done anything with them in some time.

  4. Lisa says:

    Toluna is wonderful as a survey site but they’re horrible for their online “community”. They have a forums area that is nothing but whiners, scammers and people attacking each other. If you DO join this site, my advice would be to stay away from the community area. Why a survey site even needs crap like this is beyond me.
