My Current Top Ten Paid Surveys List (April 2010)

    1. SurveySpot
      • Last Payment: $39.50 on March 31, 2010
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $536.00
      • Joined: 2008-01-30

Now that SurveySpot has finished revising its new website and points policy, payments arrive almost instantaneously in your PayPal account. You will receive products for testing and also lucrative Invoke Interactive surveys with this site.

    1. GlobalTestMarket
      • Last Payment: $52.50 on March 29, 2010
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $460.15
      • Joined: 2008-03-01

Although $50 is the highest cash-out threshold of any legitimate survey site, GTM is still one of the fastest places to earn that $50. They also offer lots of product tests.

    1. Opinion Outpost
      • Last Payment: $10.00 on February 26, 2010
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $391.80
      • Joined: 2008-02-04

No one ever complains about not receiving enough surveys or of not qualifying for enough surveys from Opinion Outpost. If they added PayPal this site would be perfect in every way.

    1. Surveyhead
      • Last Payment: $25.50 on February 7, 2010
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $261.80
      • Joined: 2009-02-05

As you can see, I have earned more from this site over the past year than I have earned from many sites over the past two years and I don’t even have time to do all of the $1 surveys that are offered.

    1. Toluna
      • Last Payment: $20.00 on March 19, 2010
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $247.02
      • Joined: 2008-02-11

The secret here is to log in every day and click on everything that offers between 15 and 120 points. These add up much quicker than doing the 900 point ($0.30) surveys that take 20-30 minutes and often lead to higher paying surveys.

    1. Valued Opinions
      • Last Payment: $20.00 Amazon gift card on March 22, 2010
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $241.30
      • Joined: 2008-02-11

If you are patient, then redeem your points for a pre-paid VISA debit card, which arrives by mail and can be used anywhere that a VISA debit card can be used; otherwise, Valued Opinions is the absolute best place to earn Amazon gift cards.

    1. MyView
      • Last Payment: $50.00 Virtual Prepaid Visa® Card on February 17, 2010
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $136
      • Joined: 2009-03-01

Some are not happy with the newly redesigned MyView website and points system, but I like it; although it does take quite awhile to earn enough points for the $50 pre-paid VISA card that can only be used online.

      • Last Payment: $10.00 on February 13, 2010
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $130
      • Joined: 2008-02-02

Don’t let the total amount earned fool you. If I were to count all of the free products I have tested and been paid for using from this total would be at least twice as high.

    1. Pinecone Research
      • Last Payment: $3.00 on March 8, 2010
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $129
      • Joined: 2008-04-03

Pinecone pays $3 for each and every survey and the surveys come slowly, but just like clockwork every month. They also offer product testing which would make the total even higher if I were to count these products at their retail value.

    1. HCD Research
      • Last Payment: $10.50 on March 4, 2010
      • Total Accumulated Earnings: $124.05
      • Joined: 2008-02-27

I don’t earn as much with HCD as I do with other survey panels, but their surveys are brief and by far the most interesting. I always look forward to rating the Super Bowl commercials and also to the one question surveys on American Idol for $0.50 each week while the show is airing.Do you have a list of favorite survey panels? Please leave a comment below and let us know some of the survey panels that work best for you.

    Anyone else use Ibotta for their electronics purchases? I used it for groceries and drug store purchases and am amazed by it so far....
