If you want to make some extra money by taking online paid surveys, the country you live in plays a big part of how many and how good opportunities you have.
If you live in the United Kingdom, you are lucky. The UK is one of the countries that gives access to the most paid survey sites.
But that does not mean all the opportunities are good, and some are mostly a waste of time. So to make it easy for you, I have below made a list of the best surveys sites in the UK for 2018, so you know which sites for sure are worth signing up for.
If you do not live in the UK, you can instead check out the list of the best sites in other countries.

Why a Top 17 list?
The list below is not an exhaustive list of all the paid survey sites that are available in the UK. There are many more available. However, there are many sites that are not worth signing up for, as they do not have good opportunities, and you can end up wasting your time.
Therefore, I have made a list based on quality and limited it to the best survey panels – these are the sites I have found to be absolutely the best paid survey opportunities in the UK.
How to use the list?
It will be impossible for you to sign up for all the paid survey sites that exist in the UK, and many of them are also not worth it. But it is a good idea to sign up for several sites to get more earning opportunities and to see which ones fit you the best, and the list below will make it easy for you to get started with the best ones and not waste your time.
So if you have not done paid surveys before, I would suggest to sign up for 5-8 sites to get started. If you really want to try to have as many opportunities as possible, you can also sign up for all of them, but it might then be a bit overwhelming and difficult to get to know all the opportunities in details and get the most out of the sites.
Once you are familiar with the sites you initially join and know how to use them to their full potential, then you can start joining more. So bookmark this site so you can come back and find this list again – it will also continuously be updated, so there will regularly be added new sites, as I keep testing new opportunities for making money on online surveys in the UK.
If you are already a member of surveys sites, you can still check the list, and see if there are some good options you are not aware of.
#1 – SwagBucks
Payout methods: PayPal, big selection of gift cards
Payout threshold: around £1
More information: Read full Swagbucks review
If you have heard about online rewards portals or paid surveys before, there is a great chance you will have heard of Swagbucks. And for good reasons. It is one of the biggest of these kinds of sites and offer great opportunities for people living in the UK. You will earn rewards in SB (Swagbucks) and these can be exchanged into cash to your PayPal account or you can choose between many gift cards.
Further than a good amount of daily surveys, Swagbucks also offers you to earn rewards for activities that we are often doing online anyways. You can get some great cash back offers when doing online shopping, earn by watching online videos, by surfing the web and by playing games. It also often offers free contests and promo codes, where you can get free points.
Swagbucks is a must to sign up for, if you live in the UK. It has some great opportunities and offers, that can make you some nice extra money. If you join through certain invitations links (like the one below), Swagbucks will also give you £3 joining bonus, which is a great start and the highest joining bonus I have seen for a survey site.
#2 – PrizeRebel
Payout methods: PayPal, big selection of gift cards, Bitcoin
Payout threshold: around £3
More information: Read full PrizeRebel review
PrizeRebel has over 7 million users and is a very popular survey site. It especially has a good amount of opportunities for English-speaking countries, including the UK. You will earn points every time you do an activity, and these points can then be exchanged into cash for your PayPal account, gift cards (and there is a good a big selection), or Bitcoins.
You will mostly have many daily opportunities to do paid surveys, but also offers that will give cashback or rewards for different activities or interaction with an advertiser’s site, do tasks through Crowdflower, earn rewards by playing games, or participate in one of the numerous free contests. PrizeRebel also several times a week offer promo codes on their social media channels that will give you free points.
When you live in the UK and want to make a bit of extra money online, PrizeRebel is definitely one of the pages you should check out.
#3 – Toluna UK
Payout methods: PayPal, gift cards, products
Payout threshold: around £5
More information: Read full Toluna review
Toluna is one of the survey sites that I have tested that is available in the most countries, including the UK. You will earn points for answering surveys, and you can exchange these into cash through PayPal, gift cards or products.
Toluna gives quite a lot of survey opportunities in the UK. Not as many as some other sites, but a very good amount and usually at least a couple a day. More than surveys, Toluna is also a community, where you can interact with other members. By doing this, you have the chance to win extra points by creating content that other members interact with. Toluna also often offers great free contests through its blog and social media channels.
Toluna has some great surveys about interesting topics, and it can also be fun to interact with other members – and especially when it can also end up earning you some extra cash:-)
#4 – PineCone Research UK
Payout methods: PayPal, check, gift cards, prepaid VISA, products
Payout threshold: $3 (around £2.30)
More information: Read full PineCone Research review
PineCone Research is one of the highest paying survey sites. You will get a minimum of $3 per survey, and you can get paid as soon as you have taken just 1 survey. PineCone Research is however an exclusive platform, as you can only join by invitation. Luckily I have such an invite for PineCone Research UK, so by clicking the link below, you will be able to sign up.
The platform is easy to use, and the reason it is not higher on the list is that it does not have as many opportunities as the other sites on the list. But the opportunities and surveys it has are definitely worth taking as they pay very well for a survey site, and if you live in the UK, it is definitely a survey site you should join.
You can get paid in check, PayPal, prepaid VISA, products, or gift cards, so there are plenty of payout methods to choose from.
#5 – YouGov UK
Payout methods: Cash, gift cards
Payout threshold: Depends on the reward
More information: Read full YouGov review
YouGov is a great and easy to use online survey panel for the UK. It has some features that you cannot find on other survey sites. You can actually get to see the results of the different research the panel is conducting and you are participating in, which is pretty cool. They have a section on the website, with the results of the UK surveys they have conducted. You can also see how the results have been used by the media, so you get a sense of how your opinion is actually being heard.
You earn points every time you take a survey, and in my experience you qualify for a very high percentage of the surveys compared to other sites. The points can then be exchanged into cash or gift cards. You will get 100 points as a joining bonus.
YouGov has a good amount of surveys in the UK and is very easy to use, so definitely a site worth considering to join.
#6 – GlobalTestMarket
Payout methods: PayPal, gift cards, charity donations
Payout threshold: around £18
More information: Read full GlobalTestMarket review
GlobalTestMarket is a reliable, and safe survey site that is available in 49 countries, including the UK. You will earn points for doing surveys and can get them paid out through PayPal, get gift cards or donate the points to charity.
On this site, you will only be offered surveys and nothing else. That makes it very easy to use, and you never really have to log in to your account except if you want to request a reward, as you will get an email whenever there is a new survey available. You will not get a huge amount of surveys, but maybe around 4-6 a week. Some weeks it might be a lot less.
As an extra site, GlobalTestMarket is great to sign up for even though it does not offer as many opportunities as some of the other sites on this list. It is very easy to use, and you just have to click the link in the emails you receive and then you can do the surveys. So it will not take a lot of extra time.
#7 – ClixSense
Payout methods: Payoneer, Skrill, Tangocard
Payout threshold: $6-$8
More information: Read full ClixSense review
ClixSense is a survey site I have had a lot of success with myself. The only reason it is not higher on the list is that there are so many great survey sites in the UK, and some of them are a bit more user-friendly than ClixSense.
But ClixSense is still easy to use, and it has many daily opportunities for surveys that pay fairly well in relation to the time spent compared to other survey sites. In addition to surveys, you can also earn money by doing small tasks through Figure Eight (previously Crowdflower), by taking online offers on the offer wall, by inviting friends, and you can earn a nice extra bonus by having a certain daily activity.
You will get paid in dollars in your ClixSense account even though you are a member from the UK, but that will not give you any problems when paying out. The only disadvantage of it is, that you cannot get paid through PayPal on ClixSense, but luckily it offers many other good ways to get paid.
#8 – Superpay.me
Payout methods: PayPal, Instant PayPal, Skrill, Bitcoin
Payout threshold: around £1
More information: Read full Superpay.me review
Superpay.me allows users from anywhere in the world to sign up. It is however very different how many opportunities there are in the different countries. The UK is one of the countries where Superpay.me offers a decent amount of surveys and other opportunities to earn like clicking ads, taking offers, and watching videos.
By logging in, you will see a list of the available surveys. Usually you will have access to several a day. You will earn cash that you can get paid out through PayPal, Skrill, Bitcoin, or Amazon gift card. The greatest thing about this site is that you can request a payout already when you have made $1 (your account will be in dollar even though you live in the UK), and this is a very low and great payout threshold compared to many other survey sites, and you can therefore very quickly get paid. You will receive the money into your PayPal (if that is what you use) within 24 hours, and very often even within a few hours.
The reason that Superpay.me is not higher on the list is that it is as user-friendly as the other sites on the list. It can take a bit of time to figure out how to use it, and it can be a bit confusing. So if you have never taken paid surveys before, you should probably start with some of the other sites instead. However, once you figure out how to use the potential of the site, Superpay.me has very good earning possibilities.
#9 – Nielsen Computer & Mobile Panel
Payout methods: Cash, entries into cash lottery
Payout threshold: Depends on devices you are using
More information: Read full Nielsen Panel review
Nielsen Computer & Mobile Panel has a specific panel just for the UK. It is different from most other sites on this list, as you actually do not have to do anything to earn rewards and participate in research once you have signed up. The panel gathers data about internet usage, and uses this data to improve online services and products, so it is a great way to help improve the internet.
You just have to install an app/software, and you will then help gather this data just by using the internet as you always do. You will be anonymous, the software is completely safe, and you can participate on several devices, if you want to. In the UK there are monthly, quarterly, and yearly rewards for a total of £30,000.
#10 – PaidViewpoint
Payout methods: PayPal
Payout threshold: around £12
More information: Read full PaidViewpoint review
PaidViewpoint is a bit different from many other survey sites. It does not offer other opportunities than surveys, but it does this very well. You will earn cash into your account that you can then pay out through PayPal.
The site is very simple and easy to use. It does not offer a huge amount of surveys compared to some other survey sites, and that is why it is not hogher on the list. It does however offer something no other survey site does. Once you are offered a survey, you know for sure that you will be able to finish it and get paid. You will never be disqualified for a survey that you are offered. Further, the surveys you get a very short and easy to answer compared to many other surveys.
The UK is one of the countries where PaidViewpoint offer the most surveys, and it is very easy to use, fast and user-friendly, so it is definitely worth signing up for. But make sure to sign up for other sites as well, as PaidViewpoint alone will not give you enough earning opportunities.
#11 – MySurvey UK
Payout methods: PayPal, gift cards
Payout threshold: 1200 points (around £10)
More information: Read full MySurvey review
MySurvey is an international site, but it also has a specific platform just for the UK called MySurvey UK. The main way to earn is by taking surveys. There is a decent amount of surveys, but at times it can take a bit of patience to find the surveys you qualify for. Other than that it is easy to sign up for and use.
In addition to taking online surveys, you can occasionally participate in product testing, you can earn a bit by inviting friends to join the platform, and there are sometimes sweepstakes where you get the chance to win an extra reward (usually pretty high rewards).
It is not the survey site with the most online surveys for the UK, but it can still has a decent amount and can be worth joining.
#12 – Green Panthera
Payout methods: PayPal
Payout threshold: $30
More information: Read full Green Panthera review
Green Panthera is available in 30 countries, and the UK is one of them. It gives several daily paid survey opportunities, and you can also earn by taking online offers like for example downloading apps and playing games.
You just have to be aware that it can take a bit of patience to be a member of Green Panthera, as you will most likely not qualify for a lot of the survey invitations you receive. But luckily it does not take long to click the links in the email invitations you receive to check. If you can accept this, Green Panthera has a good amount of surveys.
You will get paid in dollars even though you live in the UK, but once you cash out to PayPal, you will of course get the money in the currency you have chosen for your PayPal account.
#13 – InboxPounds
Payout methods: Check
Payout threshold: £20
More information: Full review coming soon
InboxPounds is mostly a site for the UK as the name suggest, even though other countries can join as well. You can earn by taking surveys, taking offers, surfing the internet, and read emails.
Some the the earning methods like surfing the internet or reading emails does not pay a lot, and is not really worth it in my opinion. But the surveys can give some nice extra money.
The platform has quite a lot of advertising, and the emails you get paid to read is also just ads, and it does not offer many payout methods, but if you can live with this, it is a platform where you can definitely earn some extra money on the side.
#14 – InstaGC
Payout methods: PayPal, gift cards, bitcoin
Payout threshold: $1
More information: Read full InstaGC review
InstaGC has a lot of ways to earn, and it has good options in the UK. You can earn by taking surveys of course, but also by surfing the internet, watching videos, betting on sports results, visiting website, signing up for free trials, doing Figure Eight tasks, and it has a great weekly bonus, where you will get a percentages of your earnings from the past week.
One of the best things about InstaGC is the very low payout threshold. You can request a payout through PayPal as soon as you have earned $1 (your account will be in dollar even though you join from the UK). That is a very low payout threshold and means that you can very quickly get paid. You can also choose to get paid in gift cards or bitcoins instead.
#15 – SurveyRewardz

Payout threshold: $1

SurveyRewardz is a very simple survey site, which also makes is easy to use. The only way you earn is by taking surveys, by there are a decent amount available in the UK.
Once you are logged in you will see the available surveys. If you do not qualify for a survey, SurveyRewardz will try to match you with other available surveys. It means that there is a good chance to get surveys, but it can also take a bit of time to find the ones you are able to complete. The rewards are however pretty good in relation to the time you spend.
Your account will be in dollars even though you live in the UK. A great thing about SurveyRewardz is the low payout threshold. Of you choose to get paid through PayPal, you can get paid already when you have earned $1. Many of the other rewards has a payout threshold of $5.
#16 – Triaba
Payout methods: PayPal, Amazon gift cards, GCodes gift codes
Payout threshold: £4
More information: Read full Triaba review
Triaba is one of the most simple survey sites to use. You just sign up and then take the surveys, when you get an email invitation. It has a specific site for the UK, but it does not offer very many surveys. But as it is easy to sign up for and does not spam you, it can still be worth considering as an extra site.
Triaba has some good reward options for the UK, as you can get paid through PayPal, Amazon gift card, or GCodes virtual gift codes. Yo can withdraw your money to PayPal when you have earned £4. If you prefer one of the two other payout methods, the payout threshold is £10.
#17 – CashCrate
Payout methods: Check, PayPal
Payout threshold: around £18
More information: Read full CashCrate review
CashCrate offers a good amount of surveys and is in the offers similar to ClixSense and PrizeRebel. You earn cash in your account that you can get out through PayPal or check. Be aware that the first time you request a payout, you do however have to receive it by check. After that you can start requesting through PayPal.
CashCrate has a lot of surveys and also other offers you can do through partner sites. You can participate in monthly contests, and it always offers 10% extra in rewards on holidays, which is great. For the UK, it is not the best site, as it can take some patience to find the available surveys and the good offers, but there will be some if you are patient.
If you only want to choose a few survey sites to sign up for, CashCrate is not among the best choices in the UK. But if you want to give as many sites as possible a chance, it is still a good site, that can offer decent opportunities, if you are patient.
There you have it – a list of the best UK survey sites. To increase your chances of earning it is a good idea to sign up for several sites, as they all offer different surveys and opportunities.
Just be aware that doing paid surveys is a great way to make some extra cash, but it will not make you rich. I always make sure to mention this, as too high expectations will lead to disappointment and not being successful with paid surveys. But if you do it with the right expectations, it is a great way to make some extra money and at the same time have your opinion heard.
If you have any experiences with survey sites in the UK yourself, if you think a site is missing on the list, or have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment below.
