6 Opportunities to Make Money at Home





As Frugal Mom that stays home with the kids, I’m always looking for a way to make the money go further.  One relatively easy way I have found to increase our household income is taking surveys.

There are three important things to realize though when it comes to surveys.

  1. Never Pay to sign up with Survey Companies.  There are plenty of companies that you can get free membership to.  Just check out the list below – they are all FREE.
  2. You’re not going to get rich, but it is a legit way to make a bit of extra money while staying home.
  3. Sign up for Multiple Survey Companies.  You won’t qualify for every paying survey opportunity, but by signing up with Multiple sites, you will increase the chance of getting chosen.

Survey Companies That Pay Cash

Survey Spot

At Survey Spot your opinions are rewarded with both cash and prizes when you participate in interesting research studies for major companies.  You can take as may surveys as you want and since there’s no commitment, you can also stop participating any time.


With PineCone, it’s not just the chance to earn, but you are guaranteed to earn points for every completed survey.  These points can be redeemed for Cash or Merchandise.

I worked with PIneCone before I started the blog and was always pleased with how quickly they paid.

Opinion Outpost

At Opinion Outpost you take surveys and earn points that can be redeemed for cash or gift vouchers to popular brands – like Amazon.

By being a member of Opinion Outpost, you may find yourself taking paid online surveys  bout electronics, medicine, politics, sports, advertisements, appliances, or even what you ate for breakfast. Companies value your opinions, and will reward you for sharing them.


Survey Companies that Pay with Gift Cards and other Rewards

Harris Poll Online

This is a Nielsen Company survey site.  For your participation and completion in surveys you will receive HiPoints.  These points can be redeemed with companies like Amazon and Starbucks.  Not quite cash, but given all the items you can get on Amazon, it could help you with your budget.

With Harris Poll you will get points and an entrance to a sweepstakes for surveys you don’t even qualify for.




WIth Toluna, not only do you earn points that you can turn into giftcards, but you also get free products.  Join now and you have the chance to receive a Free Maybelline Eye Studio to test out and review.


National Consume Panel 

NCP is a bit different in that you will receive a handheld scanner or ability to use a app to scan all products you purchase during any shopping trip you or someone in your household makes.  Record some additional information, including how much you paid.  Then once a week submit your shopping data to NCP.  You will receive points for each week you participate.

In addition, they offer opportunities for surveys to earn additional points.

Your points can be converted into cash, Visa Reward Cards, Gift Cards and more.

The great thing about these 6 sites is that they each offer a guarantee payout if you are selected and finish the surveys, some just enter you in a sweepstakes.  So don’t delay and sign up for each today.
