For today’s post, I am sharing the top 6 survey sites that I use regularly! I have always been someone who likes taking surveys, I was always the child who took lots of quizzes. So to earn money for them is pretty cool, and there are some sites where you can make a fair bit. This list consists of survey sites to earn money from in the form of apps and websites, so there should be something for everyone.
What is a survey site?
A survey site is a website where you can sign up, receive surveys and earn some extra money. It is by no means, a way of living. However, if you are wanting to save for a special occasion or would like flexible hours, this is the perfect side hustle for you!
My top 5 favourite survey sites
Prolific is definitely my favourite survey site. It is very simple to sign up and then you answer some ‘about you’ questions to determine the correct surveys. I have never been screened out before which is a massive plus! They also pay quite well. On the survey, they show how many places are left, so if there are multiple available, I like to do the one with the least places left first. Some take a few minutes and are only 50p, whereas I have done one for an hour and earned £11.
The minimum cashout is £5, another amazing quality of Prolific. When I’m using the website lots, I will earn about £10 a week. So far I’ve earned £260 which I’m super happy with. You need Paypal to cash out which I think is good because you know it’s secure.
My second favourite survey site would have to be YouGov. I really like YouGov because, once again, I haven’t been screened out. The more surveys you do, the more they send you which is pretty good and so I try to do them once I have received them. I tend to get a few surveys a week, which might not be as many compared with other survey sites, but you know that you won’t get screened out.
The cashout is £50 which takes a reasonably long time to reach that point. You have to gain 5000 points, each survey being around 50. As well as doing surveys, you can add a plugin to Chrome to share your browser history for certain websites such as Netflix, Amazon, YouTube etc. I have cashed out £50 twice, and I’m now halfway to it again!
The next of the survey sites to earn money from is AttaPoll. AttaPoll is quite a good app for taking surveys on the go or when you only have a few minutes. I have a like-dislike relationship with the app though because it is very poorly paid, with 1p being the lowest you get paid. I have not seen a single survey over 85p, so the price point is not good. One thing that I do like about the app, is that there is a star grading next to each survey. 5 stars mean that it almost definitely won’t screen you out, and as the star rate goes down, it is more likely to. It’s good so you do not waste your time.
The cashout threshold is £3 for PayPal, and then I think £2.50 for some gift cards (Amazon etc.) and Revolut. It doesn’t take too much time to get to £3, but you could probably make the money a lot quicker with another like Prolific.
I don’t tend to use AttaPoll that much, as I opt for Prolific or YouGov. But, like I said it is good for filling time if you have a few minutes spare in between a lecture etc.
If you fancy joining, you can get 40p when you use my code: iaihs
4. Student Hut
So Student Hut obviously relies on being a student. The surveys aren’t very regular, some of the time I only get one survey a month. But you do get 1000 points when you sign up and complete your profile. This means that you only need another 1500 points to cash out. Even once you have cashed out, they still start you off with 1000 points which is very nice of them! I think I have cashed out twice, or maybe three times so I have earned at least £50 in Amazon vouchers. Then they send you an email (with the address you have provided) and you can add it to your Amazon account.
The surveys are a little bit repetitive too, but they are around 100 points.

5. The Opinion Panel
The Opinion Panel is a survey site for people aged 16-30 to share their opinions. I used to use this site a lot, and then somehow forgot it existed but I do really like it. There’s a low chance of getting screened out, and there are regular surveys to take part in. Each survey is roughly 50, 100 or 150 points which is equivalent to 50p, £1 and £1.50. There are also focus groups and product testing which you can do as well.
When you sign up, you get 1000 points to start with (after completing your profile) and have to reach 2500 points to redeem. There are a variety of vouchers which you can choose from, I previously chose a Love2shop voucher. There are others such as Amazon, ASOS, Cafe Nero, Just Eat, New Look etc. They gave me 1000 points after redeeming the points, not sure if this is a first-time thing or every time.
I quite enjoy OnePoll because the surveys are fairly varied, and there are often quite a few in one day. But, it does take a very long time to get the money. You need 2500 points, and I’m currently on 850 points. I think I got 500 points straight off for answering the basic questions. But the other surveys I have taken have been either 10, 15 or 20 points long. This is one you have to persevere with!
