How much can I earn?

The simple answer is that you can earn unlimited rewards, but up to £400 per month is realistic.
Generally surveys pay from
50p to £10, depending on the length of the panel questions. You can earn even more for longer, more specialist panels.
We recommend that you register with as many surveys as possible. This way you maximise the number of survey invites, and rewards that you receive.

How am I rewarded?

To thank you for your time and valuable feedback, these survey companies reward you with cash, gift vouchers, free products and prize draw entries.
Although the rewards won’t be enough to quit your day job, they are a nice little bonus each month! And let’s face it, a little extra cash always comes in handy!

How do I get paid?

You do not need to log in to to receive your rewards.

Payments are made directly to you from each survey company, normally by Paypal. If you don’t have a Paypal account already, you can set one up for free in a couple of minutes.

The time taken for payment can vary, but each individual survey company provides clear instructions as to how their rewards operate. Gift vouchers and prize draw entries are normally sent to your email address. They can either be used online or printed out at home.

Do I have to pay anything?

Absolutely not. We are a real company, owned by Submission Technology Ltd.

We put real, honest people that are looking to earn a bit of extra cash, in touch with major, respected survey panels that are looking to reward them.

Is there a lot of survey demand for someone like me?

It depends on the number of survey companies you register with and how many surveys they have for you at the time.
The number of invites you receive will vary, depending on your demographic profile, but 4-5 surveys per month from each survey company is about average.
Although it is possible to earn unlimited rewards, up to £400 per month is realistic.

Why do companies pay people to take surveys?

Marketing is big business and companies of all sizes want to understand what their customers think about their products and services. By learning to target their products and services to the right people, companies cut their advertising spend and increase their sales.To do this, they recruit survey companies. These survey companies ask people like you for your opinions with online surveys.
