What Are the Best Survey Sites to Make Money Online? Check Out Our Top 8 List!

We have reviewed tens of different survey sites on YourOnlineRevenue.com. Some of those sites have been scams but some are legit. Today I am going to answer the question, “What Are the Best Survey Sites to Make Money Online?”

Before starting I would like to point out that I don’t personally recommend filling online surveys because there are much better ways to make money online. I know that you can make much more money online by doing other things than filling online surveys. But if you really have a deep desire to find good survey sites.What Are the Best Survey Sites to Make Money Online

There are several ways how you can make money on most of these survey sites:

  • Answering surveys and polls
  • Clicking ads
  • Visiting websites
  • Downloading mobile apps
  • Playing games
  • Watching videos

Even though there are many ways to make money honestly, the earning potential is very minimal. Anyway, here is a list of the best survey sites that we have found.



Prizerebel is our #1 recommendation of survey sites. They have more than 6,5 million members and the site has already paid +$10 million in cash and rewards. They have a very user-friendly and modern platform. There are also many “motivational” tricks on PrizeRebel that push you to earn more money with little tasks.


ClixSense is a very famous “Get-Paid-To” -site and they have paid probably the biggest amount of their members in rewards since February 2007.  There are more than 7,25 million members who have been paid more than $23,6 million in total.


Toluna is one of the oldest and probably the biggest survey site in the world with more than 10 million members. It’s founded already in 2000 in France by Frédéric-Charles Petit. Even though I used this survey site more than other ones, I can’t really recommend signing up because you can earn much better in Wealthy Affiliate.

4.Opinion Square

Another survey site where you can earn a little money by sharing your opinion. They have also a $100,000 Monthly “Your Opinion Matters” Sweepstakes gives you a chance to win $100,000 just for joining OpinionSquare through their instant win game. The only problem is that your chances of winning close to 0.


Definitely, a legit site to make pocket money online. Cashcrate has been founded already almost 11 years ago in 2006 and they offer many ways to make money online like ClixSense and PrizeRebel. You can earn some cents by watching videos or by playing games. But is it really worth it? Chasing for some cents is not worth your time.

6.Opinion World

A classical survey site which gathers customer’s feedback for companies. You can answer questions related to many different kinds of products like soda drinks, toilet paper, and cheese, for example. Then you can compare what kind of thoughts different brands like Coca-Cola, Fanta, and Pepsi come to your mind.

7.iGlobal Surveys

Another boring survey site. You will need to fill out the same information over and over again (which applies to all other sites on a blog post). Where are you living, how many people live in your household, when are you born, how much do you earn annually etc.


The main idea in this site is to earn money by clicking ads but there is also a possibility to fill out some surveys. If you think how much will you earn by clicking ads, I can instantly say that not very much. Your earnings start from $0,0006 per ad. Isn’t it ridiculous?

Why Are Online Surveys Not Worth It?

I have already discussed very much in detail on my other articles why online surveys are not worth it. My answer is clear: you should not waste your time answering online surveys. There are three main reasons for that:

1.You can earn much better money by doing other things. Learn more here.

2.You are providing only very little value with online surveys. A short lesson of the economy goes like this: You earn depending on the value that you bring to the marketplace. If you provide only a little value, you won’t earn much. And you are never able to earn a big value by answering surveys.

3.You are not learning new skills when answering surveys. One important values in my life are constant learning. When I was driving a taxi on the weekends during my University studies I saw many 50- and 60-year-old people who had clearly stopped learning in their life many decades ago. It may sound sad but that’s what it really is. I decided that I don’t want to be like one of them but instead I want to learn something new every day to become a better person. I recommend the same for you.

The Only Way to Make A Good Income with Survey Sites

I know that there is one way how some people have made hundreds and even thousands of dollars through survey sites. That way is not answering surveys. It is called affiliate marketing. It means that they are referring people to join to these survey sites. When people join and start answering surveys, they are earning a little commission for each survey.

I know that I could earn quite well by recommending these survey sites for my followers but it’s not ethical because I wouldn’t use them myself. With affiliate marketing, I can make money by recommending much more valuable and better products. Would you like to learn how you could do it as well?

I can offer you my 1-on-1 mentoring, 10 interactive video lessons and 2 FREE websites when you join Wealthy Affiliate. It is an online business community where you can learn how to make a living online. It requires work but it’s much better choice than answering surveys or clicking ads.

Hello! I am Roope "Robert" Kiuttu, the founder and owner of YourOnlineRevenue.com. I created this website back in 2015 to help you to make money online. You can ask me anything and I'll be happy to help you out. I help people daily to make more money online and I love seeing people succeeding. If you want to get my 1-on-1 support and help to make money online as well, get started HERE.


  1. You know, these online surveys made me excited after knowing that I can earn some money in exchange but then they’re sometimes a waste of time because I was often screened out and was not qualified for that survey. I just want to earn some extra money right before the classes will resume. Any recommendations you have?

  2. I’ll be looking at joining PrizeRebel because it must be good if you are recommending it. I read your review of it and it seems to have some good earning opportunities. I like that it is not just surveys that you have to complete.

    You can earn money by playing games, watching videos and signing up for special offers. Regarding the comment by John, I don’t think it’s a huge waste of time if you can find the right survey site to join. You tend to only spend around 10 minutes at a time and the reward for that is not bad at all.

    1. Hi Kingcool,

      it really depends on how much you want to earn. If you are satisfied with the low pay of online survey sites, it’s fine. But I always remind you that there are way better ways to earn a living online.

      I know one guy from U.K. (your home country) who filled out lots of surveys in the past. However, then he started a training in Wealthy Affiliate and nowadays he is making much more through that website.

  3. I really got bad experience with such online surveys, but I am still hoping to find one.
    Is there a chance I can have one?

  4. In my very early years of searching for making money online, I came across how to make money online with surveys. I must confess, I lost patience and found the surveys time wasting and laborious.

    I searched for many other ways online for earning extra income but found that it was more multi-level marketing. I am very grateful that I came across Wealthy Affiliate.

    Its not only good value for money but one can a very good income and turn this into a full-time career.

    1. Hi Richard,

      you have made the same discovery about online surveys like almost all who I have talked with about this subject. They are simply not worth the time.

      Wealthy Affiliate is definitely a better way to go. Many people have created a full-time online business even though they started without any experience. My plan is to become a full-time online entrepreneur in 2018 or later this year in 2017. A big thanks about that belongs to WA.


  5. Roope,
    The Online surveys can be a big waste of time. My experience is that it takes too much time to make a dollar. Most of the companies will not give you the choice of reviews that make enough money for your time invested. You can make money, it will not be a very high dollar per hour of investment of your time. This will earn you money for a pizza and beer once a month for a whole months work.
    In you opinion does affiliate marketing get a better return for the time spent on training and working a website.

    1. Hi John,

      I have exactly the same experience like you have about online surveys. They are not worth it.

      There is much better earning potential with affiliate marketing. You can make a living by doing it and you are very successful, you can make even millions. But don’t wait for too fast results but treat it like a real business. You will need to work and it will pay off if you are learning and putting the effort.
