The secret to getting lots of high paying surveys is to sign up for as many survey companies as you can. Make a goal right now to sign up for at least the top 10 in this list. That should take you less than 30 minutes. Then you'll start getting survey requests as soon as tonight!

The more companies you sign up with the more you can pick and choose the highest paying surveys!

Special Note

There is one survey company that I am only allowed to tell you about via email. This is because they are the highest paying one. Sign up here to notify me that I can send you that link.

IPSOS enters all new members instantly in a $5000 sweepstates just for joining. They have a great reputation for generous payouts. You've probably heard of them because they are the polling company you hear about in the news often. You don't get paid cash per survey, but you can win cash and earn points that you can exchange for cash. If you want your opinion heard, and want to earn points quick this is the one to join.

Points add up quickly. They pay via check. They also do GREAT product tests and I have never heard that someone had to return a product to them--the panelists get to keep the products they evaluate. Need a new vacuum cleaner? :)

The best part about LightSpeed is that the points can be exchanged for CASH that you can get fast--any time you need it. I do LOTS of surveys with them. I also love how fast I can earn the points!

Members redeem these points for cash via PayPal or choose from a wide selection of prizes from their online catalog. In addition members that attempt a survey study but do not qualify to complete the survey will receive an entry into their $5,000 Lightspeed Sweepstakes.

National Consumer Panel

National Consumer Panel adds up points (and money!) faster than any other survey company. It's also the easiest one of all. They send you a free little home scanner and you just scan the bar code of anything and everything you buy. It's that simple. The more you scan, the more points you get! I was amazed at how fast I got some significant points in my account. I'm saving for a flat screen TV and I should have it soon! This is so easy and fun. It's run by the Nielsen company so it's really professional and well done. There's no surveys. You just scan! It takes just minutes.

Global Test Market

Global Test Market is hot after new survey takers right now and they are compensating well. They have the fastest and most efficient surveys in the online market. And they pay CASH for surveys taken!

You will frequently get surveys for points ranging from 5 to over 1,000. You cash out when you reach 1,000 points for $50 (and that's not bad at all). You can get a survey from them that pays out 2,000 points that would be enough for $100 cash.  And you often get points, even if you don't qualify. 

There's a special version for men here .

I like this one because of the $5 sign-up bonus. They give you 5 bucks just to sign up! Then the dollars just keep coming. I get good offers every single day from them. And then after I do the quick surveys, they send me my earnings! Just like their name says.

One of the most popular ways to make money with this program is to complete their daily $.50 survey. Sure it’s not a lot of money but the survey will only take you a minute or so and if you do the math that equals out to about $30/hr. But the "secret" is that once you do the daily survey, that opens up other ways you can make money that only the daily surveys takers get. (hint hint)

Valued Opinions

Valued Opinions is great because in four quick surveys you can get $20 immediately! This is a high class service. You'll realize that when you see who their clients are. The great thing is that you can also win Marriott hotel stays, iTunes money, Macy's gift certificates and lot more nice rewards like that. And that's in addition to the cash you earn!

Here's one really unique thing they do: if you already have an account with one of their customers, like a cell phone company, or credit card company, etc., they post jobs for a certain payout (like $5 or so) and then you call customer service for that company. Then you fill out a quick survey reporting the results of the call! So you get PAID to tattle-tale on bad (or good) customer service. Nice deal huh!

Opinion Outpost

Opinion Outpost is one of the oldest and most trusted survey companies out there. They offer a lot of consistently high paying surveys.

Sends surveys for points that you convert for cash. 10 points = $1.  Very interesting surveys! Pay out quickly after you request your check. These guys are very active and popular with survey takers. Definitely worth registering for. Their quantity of surveys is higher than most.
