It’s becoming an increasingly common practice to use websites to earn a little bit of money on the side.
But no matter what website you’re using, there is always one big problem: there is a pretty significant delay on getting paid after you’ve done the work.
If you like getting paid for surveys, and are going to join only one site, I would recommend you choose Ipsos-iSay. Ipsos is the most fun and well-paying panel. Give it a try to see how you like it. It is free anyway!
If you’re like me, you’d far rather use a website that allows you to get the cash or rewards right after you’ve earned them. With this in mind, we’ve compiled a list of survey sites that will reward you the most expediently.
About the list:
This is a list of the websites you can use to earn that extra money and get it in your hands as quickly as you can.
There are absolutely sites that will put the money into your PayPal same day or next day, but we should also be frank about it: sometimes the pay just isn’t that good. We can’t direct you to any type of site with this list that will let you quit your day job, but they will definitely allow you to earn money for a little bit of non-committed work, and they’re even better if you regularly put the time in.
For this list, our criteria was that they are able “to pay either multiple times a week, or daily.”
So, those sites that only reward you once every few weeks?
We didn’t include those.
This is strictly a list for those who want to get paid fast.
Here’s a non-exhaustive list of some good places to make quick money:
- Payout minimum: $3
- Payout speed: Depends on payment method (between 1-3 days)
Pinecone Research is a survey website that has a popular reception by the internet community.
They are a survey panel like the others on this list, but the special hook about Pinecone is that they are capable of paying you out in cash. That means that if you request it, they’ll send you a check for the amount you are paying out for.
That would be a good option if you were planning on saving up for a little while (because who’s actually going to ask for a $3 check?)
Their payment per survey is normally $3, and they’re good about rewarding you for the things you’ve done. Reliability is a valuable trait in a site like this, after all.
Try Swagbucks, the famous rewards program that pays you for watching videos, taking surveys, shopping and more.
- Payout minimum: None
- Payout speed: 12 to 48 hours
As you might imagine from the name, this site is in the business of fast payouts!
Quick Rewards is a survey / GPT site, and they pay you in straight PayPal cash, which is a nice change of pace from the giftcards that most GPT sites offer.
QR is one of my personal favorites precisely because of its fast payments. I have gotten paid in PayPal in as little as 15 minutes!
- Payout minimum: $10
- Payout speed: Within a day
Opinion Outpost is a survey website that has a pretty good reputation on the internet. You’ll never find this website on a list of survey scams, that’s for sure!
In recent times they’ve made more of an effort to bill themselves as people who provide a quick payment, so now they’ve got their delivery speed down to within a day, which is quite a nice thing.
The amount of money you can earn between surveys will vary pretty significantly.
One thing to consider about signing up for them though: in my experiences, you’ll want to use your non-primary email account, or at least use Gmail if your primary account is through that service.
That’s because Opinion Outpost is going to be sending you a lot of emails asking you to come participate in their site, and you don’t want that stuff filling up your inbox (though the superior filtering functions of Gmail will relegate this to a “promotions” tab which you can go through at will.)
- Payout minimum: $15
- Payout speed: 1-3 days
Paid Viewpoint is a survey site in the classic sense. You get paid per survey taken, as you might imagine.
There is just as much money to be made on this site through surveys as there is through referrals, so if you have multiple people in your life who are looking for this type of option, then you’re in luck (it’s $25 per person, after all.)
Paid viewpoint gets my seal of approval, mostly because they have a good system of conduct. No mid-survey disqualification, no asking for your home address.
- Payout minimum: $5
- Payout speed: Within a day
This is a get paid to (GPT) / survey site that has a solid history for being reliable.
If you have never heard of a GPT site, it’s a little bit like QR we talked about up above where you can do various things like surveys, watching ads, and giving feedback on things for money.
Sometimes they’ll ask you to take advantage of sponsor deals, but the general idea is that they have a variety of things for you to do that can earn money.
This site, like many, is capable of paying out to PayPal, which I recommend personally since it is so universal across the many sites that offer online payment.
- Payout minimum: $2
- Payout speed: Between 2-3 days
This website is run by the same people up above who run Paid Viewpoint, and it has a different focus.
The rewards work a little differently. You participate in small polls, which can be done quite quickly, and they’ll pay you out peanuts, just a few cents per.
However, you will also receive credits that you can enter into daily prize contests (for a prize of $50,) which is the main draw of the website.
This is a more contest-based way of doing the online money thing, which suits some people’s style better.
So that’s our list of survey sites that pay out quickly. If you want more ways to make money in a hurry, check out this articles.
In the mean time, be sure to bookmark this page as I am planning to update this list wherever I find other survey panels that pay as quickly as sites mentioned here.
