9 Survey Sites To Make Money Online

Taking surveys, if not the most lucrative way to start making money online, is certainly one of the easiest. It can be done whenever you have a bit of spare time, even just as you’re sat in front of the TV in the evening.

Whilst it’s not possible to make a full time income taking surveys, it’s definitely possible to make a good monthly sum – £200 is an achievable amount to aim for, with a bit of time and effort. If you just want to do a few surveys here and there you could still net yourself a good £50+ each month.

Not every survey site is a winner for everyone, you’ll find that some are more suited to you than others, so it’s worth signing up for a few to see which you get on with the best. You can also supplement your survey income with survey and task apps.

There are a TON of survey sites out there, but not all will work globally, and payment options can differ. Here are some survey sites that work well in the UK and pay out in cash or decent gift cards.

Opinion Outpost

Opinion Outpost is a survey site that has cash or voucher payment options, and has a low minimum payout of £2.50. Survey invitations are sent via email, or you can log into your account to see active surveys.

Inbox Pounds

Inbox Pounds pays for completing surveys and offers. They also pay pennies if you click on their Paid Emails – would recommend using a specific email if you do this though so you don’t clutter up your inbox! Payment threshold is £20.


Qmee is a survey site (or app) that you also add as a browser extension. There are usually surveys daily, but you may screen out easily if you don’t meet the target demographic.

Pinecone is a consumer research survey site and pays £3 per survey, which usually involves providing feedback on a new product. The best thing about Pinecone is that you can cash out immediately after each survey so don’t have to collect a certain amount. The downside is that it usually has specific demographic requirements so it can be hard to be accepted on to the panel.

  • Register: Sign up for Pinecone

Populus Live is one of the better paying survey sites, paying a set fee of £1 per 5 minutes and are usually worth between £1 and £4. Surveys are sent via email invitation. Once you’ve reached £50 in earnings, you’ll be posted a cheque.


YouGov send surveys that cover all kinds of topics, including politics and current affairs. Each survey is usually worth 50p and is reasonably short. The downside to YouGov is that you have to earn £50 before you receive payment.

Valued Opinions

Valued Opinions is a survey site that pays out in gift cards once you’ve earned £10.5o – Rewards are in £10 vouchers but they take a 50p processing fee to redeem. The rate of pay for each survey is reasonable, but surveys can be infrequent, with just 1 or 2 per week.
