People who’ve been doing surveys as a side hustle for a few years may have found that their tried-and-true go-to platforms and websites could use a refresh. If you’re looking for new prospects, search no more.

Branded Surveys

They’ve been around since 2012, but Branded Surveys may not be as well known as some other survey for pay sites. They boast having paid out over 17 million dollars to responders. Every survey you take gains you points, which can be traded in for cash and gift cards.


If you want a site that lets you pick and choose your surveys based on the time it would take to complete it, PrizeRebel may be your speed. They also offer a lot of payment options. The website explains, “Many members redeem their PrizeRebel points for gift cards. From Amazon to Burger King, there is always something exciting to cash in those PrizeRebel points for. Another hot reward is our direct cash options! You can set up a direct deposit account easily and redeem your points for cash or send it to your Paypal account. You can also use your points to enter raffles, or a lucky jackpot, for the chance at bigger rewards.”


Some people prefer using an app to take surveys, and Toluna offers that on both Apple and Android platforms. Their website boasts users having the ability to influence big brands like Amazon and Coca-Cola. What sets them apart, is survey takers have the ability to opt into topics that actually interest them. Their surveys may take a bit longer than other sites, as they tend to run about 15 or 20 minutes each. At the end you’re paid in points that you can redeem for cash and gift cards.


One of the biggest market research companies in the world is a French company called Ipsos, and they have a site called i-Say where you can sign up to take paid surveys.  Once you fill out a profile questionnaire for demographics purposes, you can complete surveys to get points. These points can be traded for paypal deposits or an array of gift cards that range from Target to IHOP to charities like American Red Cross. The website claims, “Every day your i-Say experience will be different, fun and thought-provoking.”

Harris Poll

Harris Poll Online offers surveys that range in length from 5 minutes all the way up to 25 minutes. They say your survey answers “Influence important decision makers in government, corporations, and non-profit organizations with your unique insights.” Their app is available on both major platforms. The website explains of the process, “After you have reached 1250 points, you are able to redeem your HIpoints for e-cards and gift vouchers. Most people who participate, reach this threshold after completing around 10 surveys. Rewards include e-cards or gift vouchers from Amazon, iTunes, Starbucks and more.”

Even if making extra cash from surveys is old hat for you, you can still spice it up a little bit by trying new platforms.
