Just go HERE, enter your name & email to create your account, then be sure to verify your email once you’ve signed up. After your email is verified, you’ll be able to complete your account and take surveys to start earning points.

You can earn even more points by taking their short “How it Works” virtual tour, downloading their browser extension, and completing your profile by answering questions about yourself and your household.

Each point is worth 1¢ when you cash out, and there is a minimum of 500 points (or $5) needed to cash out. You can also build up your points balance and stash them away for a little extra spending money near birthdays or Christmas! Even sweeter, eGift Card options include Amazon, Target, Walmart, Starbucks, Sephora, and more!

Please note that in order to redeem any of your points, you will need to verify your identity by confirming your contact information through a text message or email, or completing a few security questions.

Each survey will vary in the number of points it gives, and they should take around 15 minutes each to complete. New survey opportunities are added to your account all the time, so be sure to log into your account often for new updates!

    I just signed up and took two surveys. Seemed to work great. Then the next three surveys got stuck in a loop of sorts. Keep asking the same question over and over and over until I finally gave up on that survey. Anyone had this experience?

    • LENNY

      YES, I HAVE HAD PROBLEMS ON THAT SITE TOO.

    I love Survey Junkie! I’ve made over $400 doing surveys since signing up in September. I always cash out via PayPal and have never had any issues.

    • Amber

      WOW! I do surveys that are supposed to be 150, and then at the end it will say sorry you didn’t qualify but here are your 8 points….

      • Lisa

        Oh, no, where is the thumbs down button, Amber. Agree, I’ve done survey’s that have taken an inordinate amount of my time (not through this referred to site though), but totally hate that. Take all my time, information and dedication to it, only to give me a few pennies. 🙁

      Do you spend several hours a day doing the surveys or are you making that amount because of the number of points a survey is worth? Thank you for the help.

      • JenniferB

        I have definitely had that happen and it’s frustrating. I will only do surveys that are worth my time. For example a 20 minute survey for .35 cents really isn’t worth it to me. I will wait for shorter or higher point surveys. Also they often run promos if you do 3 surveys for so many days during the earning period you get a $5 bonus. As for how many I do in a day, it really varies. I try to fill down time where I may otherwise be mindlessly scrolling, doing a survey. Might as well make some extra cash rather than waste time on Facebook. 😉 I hope this helps!!

          Thank you for the info.

    This site pointed me towards Amazon’s Mechanical Turk years ago. Guess what? I’ve made over $40k on the site. It’s not for everyone but if you stick with it past the learning curve, it can be quite lucrative.

    • Hannah

      How did you get accepted? I’ve tried twice with two different amazon accounts and I’ve been denied both times!

    • Evie

      40K? To sit on my butt and answer questions. I am signing up!
      So many worry about making no $s.
      Well, so much time is wasted hanging out, listening to lame conversations, boring tv and a lot of other mindless pursuits. The nickels and dimes add up! I only get mad if they do not pay anything!

      • Pure_intentions

        I just got accepted! It says something about using your computer and making it secure. Do you use a software to make sure you’re system is secured? What are your suggestions to make it successful?

    • Lori

      How did you get accepted? I was declined.

    • ilovescott

      Kb can you explain how Amazon mechanical Turk works? I just made an account and I am waiting to see if I get accepted or not. Tia!!!

    • Pure_intentions

      How do you pay tax? I’m just wondering if the tax filing gets complicated when you with Mechanical Turk.
