Why I made a Top 10 list

After having seen my list of the best survey sites, I just want to clarify how I have made this list. I have tested all the sites thoroughly myself, and not only tested the sites on the top 10 list. I have tested MANY more sites, and I am continuously testing new ones. You can find reviews of all the sites I have tested on this website. I decided to make a list of the best sites to make it easy for other people to get started with getting paid from online surveys, by showing which sites, I have found to be the best and why.

I will however recommend that you also read the reviews of the sites, as I have a lot of advices and tips for the different sites in these reviews. By reading them, you will get more information, and it will be easier for you to choose the sites that are right for you – the ones that are the best for me, might not necessarily be the best for you. There can be certain things that makes a survey site very good in for example one country, but not very attractive in another. I have done my best to put this kind of information in the reviews and in the descriptions of the survey sites.

How do I decide what sites make it to the top 10?

You might be wondering how I made a Top 10 when there are hundreds of survey sites out there. I must admit that I have not been able to test every single survey site there is, but I have tested a lot, and I will continue to test as many as possible. I will therefore also continously update the list above.

When testing survey sites, I look at how much money it is possible to make in relation to the time spent, how often they have available surveys, how easy it is to use, how do they pay (paypal, vouchers, gifts etc.) and more. The ratings above are given based on these parameters, when I compare a certain site to survey sites in general. All this put together, leads to my Top 10.

Some sites, I have also decided not even to try to sign up for now, as they are easy to spot as being a scam. Some of these you will be able to find scam warnings about in the review section. There are for example sites that want you to pay a large amount of money to get access to surveys (in general I would advice not to join a site that charges you for access to surveys). I have written an general article about how you can avoid these survey scams, so you know what to consider before joining a survey site, and how to spot the ones that you should stay away from.

If you have other experiences, disagree or agree with the list, please feel free to leave a comment below. Would be great to hear about your experiences as well.

      Hi Hadi,

      On the list above you should be able to join the following sites from Iran: ClixSense, PrizeRebel, and Superpay.me. You can also check out SurveyRewardz as that is available worldwide.

      There are not many sites that offer Bitcoin as payment, but I have made a list of sites that offer Bitcoin as reward you can check out, if you prefer this reward.

      Hope this helps.

    What do you think of VIP VOICE, Mindfield online internet panel and quickbites? Am I wasting my time?

    Reply
    • Mikael

      Hi Darlene,

      I have actually not tested any of these sites myself yet, but will put them on my list of sites to test and write reviews about. I have however had a quick look. Be aware that on VIP Voice and Shoppers Voice you will not be paid in cash. Other rewards can also be great, but just so you are aware of this.

      Quickbites is a kind of community for food lovers, where you can get food related surveys. My first impression is that it might be fun, if you love food, but you should probably not expect too many earning opportunities. Will know more once I have tested it properly. Cannot unfortunately not say much about Mindsfield at the moment – it looks legit but a bit old fashioned, but cannot say anything about the opportunities yet.

      Hope this helps.

          I just had a quick look. It seems they are paying differently depending on the offer/survey you take. Sometimes you will get rewards or chances to win prizes, but they also pay in cash through check or PayPal.

            thanks for all your help. i wouldnt have got started if it wasnt for your 5 day course. I wont even tell you how many places i do surveys for. this is my new hobby. Still feeling out which ones i benefit from. Have a choice of like 30 of them. But pick and choose and have a program i set up, took alot of homework just to do that, which you need to do to set up your time wisely and to which sites and know how to use the site to make the most out of it…thanks again.

            Thank you very much for the feedback Darlene. Really appreciate it and very glad to hear my free course helped you. And feel free to keep coming back and sharing your experiences with the sites you test – it is great to hear about.

    Wow! Great post.
    You can also check my best earning survey site Timebucks that pay to complete offers, do surveys, play games, take pictures, have fun and get paid⏱️

    Reply
    • Mikael

      Thank you. I have actually made a whole review of Timebucks. I agree it has some good options, but many of the opportunities do not pay as well as on many other sites, and it therefore takes longer to get to the payout threshold in my experience. That is why Timebucks is not on the top 10 list on the best survey sites.

      But thanks for the suggestion.

          On the list above, I would suggest ClixSense, PrizeRebel, GlobalTestMarket, Toluna, and Superpay.me for Argentina. A site that is not on the top 10 list but still a good site and should have quite a lot of opportunities for Argentina is Gift Hunter Club.

          Hope this helps and let me know, if you have any other questions.

    Hello. Any chance that you can recommend any survey sites for Romania where I’ll stay for awhile. From my experience MOBROG & Paidviewpoint sucks and are not serious on giving surveys or points when you complete retails as they ask and declared when you join.

    Reply
    • Mikael

      Hi Joe,

      Do not really know many particular survey sites just for Romania. But GlobalTestMarket does have a panel just for Romania. Other than that, it would have to be the sites that are available more or less worldwide. On the list above these sites include ClixSense, PrizeRebel, and Superpay.me.

      Thanks for also sharing your opinion about Mobrog and PaidViewpoint. Mobrog can take some patience to find the surveys you qualify for, and in my experience and from what I hear from others as well, it is very often you do not qualify, so it can take some time to reach the payout threshold.

      PaidViewpoint does not offer many surveys, but the ones you are offered, you definitely should be able to complete. One of the benefits of PaidViewpoint is that you are never offered surveys you do not qualify for. However, if you do not live in an English-speaking country, it does not make sense to join PaidViewpoint, as you will more or less never get any real paying surveys other than the daily short TraitScore surveys.

      Hope this helps and let me know, if you have any more questions.

      Hi Iqbal,

      Which sites have you tried so far? Of the sites on top 10 list above Toluna has a specific sites for Saudi Arabia, and you should also be able to find opportunities on ClixSense. You can also try Triaba, which also have a site just for your country.

      Hope this helps, and feel free to come back and let me know how they work out for you.

        I have already joined toluna and clixsense but I got the survey weekly and after getting the survey I could not complete always. Suggest me some another website.

        • Mikael

          Be aware that on Clixsense it can sometimes take a bit of time to find the surveys you qualify depending on the country. But after a while, it is possible to figure out what kind of surveys you mostly qualify for. Also, notice that ClixSense has several other ways to earn like the offers and the Figure Eight tasks. The tasks do not pay much in the beginning, but as you take more, you will get higher rewards.

          Did you try Triaba, as it has a specific site for Saudi Arabia? Ipsos i-say is another site that has a specific site there. Timebucks is a site that will for sure have some ways for you to earn in Saudi Arabia – not sure how many surveys it will have, and many of the other tasks do not pay very well, but it always has some ways to earn available no matter the country you live in.

          Hope this gives you a few more ideas and can help you find some sites that work for you. Feel free to keep me updated how the opportunities are for you on those sites. It is always great for me to hear feedback about the different sites in different countries and take this into consideration in my reviews.

      Thank you for the kind words Salim. I appreciate it.

      I am not too sure about sites for Jamaica to be honest. But you should be able to get some opportunities on ClixSense, PrizeRebel, and Superpay.me. There is also the site Ipsos i-Say which is not on my top 10 list, but it has a specific site for Jamaica, so it might be worth checking out.

    Hi Mikael

    Thank you for the awesome list. I am always looking for sites like this as i work from home, so it adds a little extra income to what I already earn :).

    I do currently work on Panelstation,Toluna, Mobrog and Global Test Market. I will be trying out a few listed here as well.

    I am in SOUTH AFRICA. are there any other sites you can recommend for SA?

So make sure to come back and check that out:-) But a couple of sites on the list above you for now definitely should check out are PrizeRebel and ClixSense. They should give good opportunities for you.

      Can I ask you how you find the opportunities in SA on the sites you mention you are already using? It is always great to hear about others experiences.

      Thanks,

        Hi Mikael

        I have cashed out on THE PANELSTATION. My experience with them was good and I did do a review about the site on my website.

        MOBROG I will cash out for the first time tomorrow and the cashout minimum was $6.25 which I achieved in about 3 weeks as I didn’t qualify for all surveys sent via email to me.

        I did join the other sites more recently so taking it a day at a time.

        Will keep you updated as I go 🙂

      I do not know of many sites that are specifically for Ukraine. But there are some of the big international sites you can also join from there. Some of the sites on the list that are available there are ClixSense, Superpay.me, and PrizeRebel.

      You can also try a site like TimeBucks that is available there. It does not give very high rewards for many of the ways you can earn, but you can always find a way to earn there no matter where you live.

      Hope this helps, and feel free to come back and keep me updated about how it goes and how many opportunities you find on each site.
