How Paid Surveys Fit Into the Busy Mom Lifestyle

Posted on by

Being a stay-at-home mom can be an incredibly rewarding career, but unfortunately, it is not a big income generator. Many people have heard that online surveys are a good way to make money on your own time. That has definitely been my experience. However it's important to know that some surveys sites offer cash while others do not pay cash at all. Other survey panels will give you a sweepstakes entry for each survey that you fill out, or points that you can redeem for merchandise. Here are some of the best survey websites I am familiar with that offer real survey jobs for the stay-at-home mom—or anyone looking to make extra cash in their spare time.

The biggest attraction is that these surveys can be taken whenever it is convenient for you. If you have time early in the morning before the kids get up, when the baby is down for a nap, or at night when the kids are in bed then you can do the surveys then. That is the best thing about taking surveys as a stay at home mom—they can be done wherever you are whenever you have time. If you want to start taking surveys to earn extra cash, consider starting with these:

Ipsos i-Say
Ipsos i-Say offers surveys on a variety of topics that can be done from home. You may receive multiple surveys each day and some surveys can be worth a lot of points that can be redeemed. You can redeem your points for cash, gift cards, or making donations.

Survey Savvy
Survey Savvy is a unique survey panel that does not use a point system. When you take a survey, they inform you of how much money you will get when you successfully complete the survey. Unfortunately, there is no compensation if you do not qualify for a survey. You can also get rewarded for referring people to the site and getting them to sign up and take surveys too.

Inspired Opinions
Inspired Opinions is a survey panel that does not have as much traffic as other panel sites, but the surveys they send tend to be very interesting and they offer great rewards. You can also get rewarded for email or phone interviews opportunities, which can be a nice change from the regular survey panels.

The best way for a stay-at-home mom to make the most of her survey time is to registering with several different companies. I recommend signing up with 3-5 different survey sites so that you always have a steady flow of survey options. When one site is slow the others help maintain a good level of available surveys coming to your inbox. Don't expect to gain wealth from doing surveys, but it can be a fun and easy way to earn money at home—even with the busy schedule you have.
