Making Money Online – 7 Sites

I used to do “make money online” programs all the time! Now I am pretty selective, but there are still some great ways to make money online. It can’t hurt to try them. At the worst you will find out that you hated the program and quit. At most you will find it a successful way to make a little extra cash. Here is a list of sites you can use to make money online:

Inbox Dollars

Inbox Dollars is a rewards program where you can earn money for doing things you already do, such as:

  • earn $0.10 for each coupon you print and redeem through Inbox Dollars!
  • earn cash back for shopping at stores like Target, Kohls, Walmart, KMart, ShoeMall, and many others. Cash back ranges from 2% up to around 20% for most stores.
  • earn cash for filling out surveys and reading email.

When you reach $30 in your account, you will receive a check from Inbox Dollars at the end of the month.

Toluna Global Opinion Panel

Toluna is a global site for everything related to surveys, polls and opinions! When you become a Toluna community member you enjoy the following benefits:

  • Earn points worth $1 to $5 each time you qualify for and complete a survey! You’ll also earn for the polls and opinion topics you create! Each time you participate in or complete a survey you’ll be entered into a monthly $4500 prize draw!
  • Create your own polls and opinion topics to host on Toluna, or export them to your own blog or website!
  • Voice your opinion by participating in other community members’ polls and opinion topics! There’s no catch! Your membership is free, and all information you provide is strictly confidential and will never be used to advertise or to sell you anything.


As soon as you register, you’ll be entered to win their monthly $4500 cash drawing!


Apperang is a new site that allows you to download apps for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod and then pays you for doing so! Many of the apps you can download are free (and you get paid to do it). Some of them do cost, but the amount that they pay you will be higher than the cost of the app. It is a great way to try out free apps! This site is no longer available!

Nielson Digital Voice

Nielsen family members have been influential in determining the popularity of television programs for over 50 years. I have had a decent amount of experience working with Nielson and they are by far my favorite company to work with. When you sign up for this you will also be entered for a $10,000 prize.

NPD Online Research

Win cash and prizes with NPD Online Research. You will be asked to answer surveys about your purchases and you will have the chance to win with every survey you complete.

Panda Research

Panda Research is an online Paid survey and email site. You earn

  • $3-$75 for every survey you complete
  • $0.03-$0.25 for every email you read
  • Get $3 for signing up

This one is a double opt in so you do not get your $3 until you confirm your email address. I suggest setting up a free address at gmail or hotmail to handle the free emails you will be getting.

Survey Panel Group

And the last making money online site on this list is the Survey Panel Group. It is a simple survey site. You take surveys and get paid along with being entered into a contest for a grand prize.

Give them a shot! If you hate them you can always quit, but if it turns out you like them you might be able to fund next years Christmas with free making money online sites!

Which of these would you say is your personal favorite, in terms of how successful you are with it? I’m working on getting back into taking surveys and such, but I know that different sites can vary drastically in how reliable they are as a source of additional income (small though it may be!).

Anything by Nielson I love!! They pay really well and are reliable.

If you have an iPod then apparang is super easy and you can get free apps out of it (plus make money) so I really recommend that one as well.
