The nice thing about surveys is if you decide you do not like the company you can just quit, however, knowing how others rank the program beforehand can save you some wasted time. I always recommend using a disposable email address for these types of programs so you do not submit your everyday email to spam.
Nielson Home Scanner Program – not ranked, but it is one of my favorites. I think it is not ranked simply because you can do the program in your home rather than simply answering email surveys. You can sign up here if you have a landline phone or here if you do not.
Valued Opinions – This is listed in the top 5! If you are looking for a survey company to join then you should give them a shot. You are paid for surveys.
MyPoints – This site is listed in the top 10. You can also earn points for redeeming coupons through them!
Synovate – Synovate is also listed in the top 10. You get free products and win prizes with Synovate.
Toluna – 32% of the people who tried this program would recommend it to their friends. That isn’t a great stat so I would only give it a shot if you are looking to try something new or if you have a little extra time to spend in order to determine if it is for you. With Toluna you get rewards for both surveys and polls.
