I still remember August of last year (2019), I was searching on Google about how to make money online while killing my time. I came upon a long list of results that talk about surveys for money. All of the sites have an evaluation of what the best survey sites are. I found Millenial Money website interesting because they have list of cool survey sites.
That’s how I came to know Survey Junkie.
Survey Junkie is a legitimate company that really pays cash for completed surveys.
Get money and rewards for your opinion, doesn’t that sound nice??
At first, I had a doubt that this could be just another scam. I asked, can you really make money doing surveys online? I gave it a try. I took surveys, earned points, then I was able to redeem those points into cash.
Below are the snippets of my Paypal account where I received my Survey Junkie income.
The reason why I’m writing this blog is pretty obvious— I want to share the Good News! Let me share to you how I made money.
How did I make money doing surveys?
1. SIGN UP WITH SURVEY JUNKIE
The first thing I did was of course, I signed up.
Now that you clicked the link, you should be able to see this page on another tab.
From this page I clicked “JOIN NOW”. After that, I was asked for my valid email address, created my own profile and answered questions about my household. It only took me a couple of minutes to finish.
Why was I asked those questions? Survey Junkie clearly states that the surveys that will be given to you will be based on those answers you provided.
- You can only sign up for one account
- Survey Junkie is a 100% FREE PAID SURVEY SITE
- You don’t have to provide your Social Security Number (SSN)
- Only those living in USA, Canada and Australia are qualified to join
- You must be 13 years old or older
2. GET STARTED TO MAKE MONEY DOING SURVEYS
This is how the dashboard looks like. I began to make money doing surveys right after I signed up.
You will earn points per survey. Just like what you see above, some surveys can give you 150 points, some can give you 10. It depends on how much time you’re willing to commit.
I would suggest to take the surveys with the higher points, not the ones with shorter time to finish. That way, you will accumulate more points faster.
Upon sign up, you will receive Bonus Points. In my experience, I received 25 points for just signing up. 50 points for General Profile Questions, 25 points to confirm email, 5 points to just read how Survey Junkie works, 10 points each for the questions related to your interest, for instance, Travel, Shopping, Technology, Health, Household, etc.
- You can only pay out once you’ve reached 1000 points or $10.00
- Take advantage of the Bonus Points
3. CONSISTENCY AND COMMITMENT
Survey Junkie doesn’t give you time pressure, however, it demands consistency and commitment. It’s simply because if you don’t take survey, you won’t earn points.
The more surveys you take, the more you earn.
It certainly won’t make you rich, but earning $115.58 for just channeling out your boredom and expressing your opinions doesn’t sound bad, right?
4. REDEEM YOUR POINTS
Points can be redeemed through E-gift cards, Bank transfer or Paypal.
So then, I came to the point when I had to redeem my points into cash. I used my Paypal to receive my money from taking surveys.
That’s just the sweetest feeling in the whole world!!!!
- Bank Transfer and Paypal is only available in the US
- Redeeming points via E-gift card doesn’t have a fee
- US residents earning more than $600.00 will need to finish W-9 and will be issued 1099 documents for taxes
