Several online websites offer individuals a fun way to earn money in exchange for completing surveys or playing games. Popular cash rewards sites include Inbox Dollars, Cash Crate and Swagbucks, which all pay members for surveys. Game Play Surveys is a website dedicated to games.
Legitimate survey and game websites are free to join and require signing up with an email address. After the membership profile is completed, individuals receive access to various surveys and games. Typically, survey sites send members invitations to surveys based on interests found in the profile. An average survey takes 15 to 20 minutes to complete. Once the completed survey is submitted, the survey site pays the individual a certain amount per survey, which varies per site. Some survey sites award points instead of paying out cash. Points are typically redeemed for prizes. Sometimes survey participants receive new products.
Individuals who enjoy surveys and games can sign up with more than one survey website to maximize earning potential. When a survey invitation is received, it must be responded to quickly to secure a spot. Members must also keep membership profile information updated to continue receiving access to quality surveys and gaming opportunities. Survey sites that request Social Security, bank or credit card information should be avoided.
