The average person with a smartphone spends over 4 hours a day using that smartphone. For most people, thats about a third of their working day spent right on their phone. As technology gets better each and every day, this number will continue to rise and people will need to find better ways to be more productive while staring at a screen all day.
In recent years, paid surveys have become a popular trend amongst smartphone users as a means to pass time and earn some extra cash at the time. There are dozens of paid survey providers, but some may seem scammy or misleading. We’ve compiled a list of the 4 best apps/websites to take surveys and get rewarded from them!
1. Zap Surveys
Zap Surveys is our first choice that we recommend to first time survey takers who are looking to make some extra cash. The app is available on iOS and Android and is incredibly easy to use. You simply download the app, register using your email or Facebook account, and start taking surveys! You get paid $6 after your first survey, so you get off to a quick start! The app offers several different options on how you can grow your earnings other than just taking surveys. Some of those options include:
Location Rewards: If you turn on your location settings and are within a certain radius of a participating store, Zap will pay you $.05 - $.07. This can quickly add up over time and is a great way to a quicker cash out!
Daily Prizes: If you login into the app everyday and check in under the “daily” section you get paid some extra change just for checking in!
Refer Your Friends: Zap Surveys has implemented a referral program where you get paid $.45 every time someone registers using your link. You can also get additional cash by sharing your link on social media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter)
Swagbucks is a website and mobile app that allows you to earn cash through a variety of different options. You can download games, watch videos, or take surveys! Instead of earning actual cash in the app you earn “Swagbucks” which you can then redeem for cash!
Surveys take an average of around 10 minutes to complete and you’ll earn 40-100 Swagbucks. Similar to out first recommendation, Zap Surveys, Swagbucks also offers prizes for referring friends and daily logins! This platform is completely free to join, so you can earn as soon as possible!
3. Inbox Dollars
Inbox Dollars is very similar to Swagbucks in the sense that is both available on the web and through the InboxDollars app on iOS and Android. Inbox Dollars offers several different ways to earn including surveys, watching videos, and playing games. The registration process for Inbox Dollars is very simple and you can start earning immediately! Given all the earning potential, make sure to utilize the mobile app to earn on the go!
4. Survey Junkie
Survey Junkie is a paid online survey website that pays people to take surveys. Like Zap Surveys, Survey Junkie is completely committed to surveys, not videos or games like the other two options. Survey Junkie is super easy to register and navigate, so there is no hassle when you get started! New surveys are available every day and you can even get email notifications when a new survey is available!
With no Survey Junkie mobile app, this platform isn’t the best for all potential users. Not everyone has a laptop they carry around, but most people carry around their phone, so a mobile app seems necessary. Not being able to earn on-the-go puts this at the bottom of the 4 options. Nonetheless, this is still a great option to get paid for your opinion!
