These are the most-legitimate surveys that I know of personally.  These either pay by cash, check, points for cash, or points for gift cards.

  1. SurveySpot   This is one of the first surveys I ever tried.  After accumulating 1000 points, you can redeem for $10.  You may request a check, gift card or have funds transferred to PayPal.  There is also a sweepstakes that allow you to win more points.  At times, there may be a product testing which will be an additional payment.
  2. Opinion Outpost  This site is very similar to SurveySpot.  Redemption starts at 100 points.  You may request a check, gift card or have funds transferred to PayPal.
  3. PineCone Research  This one is my favorite.  Each survey is worth 300 points which is equivalent to $3.  There are opportunities for follow-up surveys or product testing.  Redemption may be made by cash (PayPal), gift cards or gifts.
  4. iPoll  These are quick surveys that pay in small amounts that add up very quickly.
  5. Product Report Card  With this website, you register products, appliances, etc. and give a review.  You also have the opportunity to test products and perform surveys.  Payout is by check, PayPal or Amazon gift cards.
  6. Mysurvey  Surveys are performed for points that can be redeemed for cash (PayPal or gift cards).  Surveys can be performed via Smartphone.
  7. Globaltestmarket  I can say that this is probably one of the best survey platforms.  You have to do these as soon as they come in your mailbox.  Payout is $50 at 1150 points.
  8. American Consumer Opinion or ACOP  These surveys are only open for a short time.  Redemption can be made for a check or cash.
  9. SurveySavvy  This survey allows for opinions to be made in a number of innovative ways.  Redemption can be made by check.
  10. Mintvine  This a great survey site that you can make quick cash on.  These surveys are only open for a short amount of time as well.
