Regular readers know that both Deacon and I are huge advocates of making extra money through side hustles. If you can make that money from the comfort of your own home – even better!

Deacon shares his online income that he brings in every month with his monthly online income reports. So far his best month was over $6,000!

An easy source of extra income that can be earned from the comfort of your home is from filling out surveys online.

You won’t get rich by filling out surveys online, but you can make money quickly and easily by doing it.

And why not make good use of your free time by using it to earn a little extra cash? Today I’ll share information on three popular and reputable survey companies that pay money for things you often do every day.

By the way, it’s free to join all three of these survey companies. If a survey company asks you to pay to join, it’s probably a scam and you should stay away.

Survey Junkie

Opinion Outpost

According to their website, here’s Opinion Outpost in a nutshell:

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

One of the great things about Opinion Outpost is that they use the personal information you enter to match surveys that most relate to you and the things that matter to you.

Most surveys are around the ten minutes, but they have plenty of longer and shorter surveys so that you can pick which ones fit into your schedule. The money you earn by taking surveys through Opinion Outpost can be used to purchase gift cards or can be paid to you in cold, hard cash via Paypal.

Harris Poll

Having been in business for over 45 years, Harris Poll is one of the oldest and most reputable survey companies around. Their survey results are often published in major news media publications. With Harris Poll, you earn HI Rewards for the surveys you complete.

When you’ve accumulated as little as $10 in rewards, your earned rewards allow you to purchase gift cards for stores such as Walmart, Amazon, and iTunes.

As I mentioned, filling out online surveys and surfing the web won’t make you rich, but the rewards really do add up. Consider taking a few minutes of your unused time each day (as in when you watch TV, wait for appointments or surf the Web for fun) to earn some money in the process. Each step you can take to reach your financial goals puts you one step closer to your dreams.
