I have been a member of many sites and have made plenty of cash on the side to pay for extra things such as Christmas and other holiday. This extra cash has made the holidays that much bigger. I wasn't able to get this steady flow on the side over night. It actually took me about a year and a 1/2 of doing surveys and focus groups on and off. When I started though no one handed me the links like I am doing on this page. I had to do trial and error to find the ones that actually paid. There are a few things to remember when you do this.... 1) if you're doing a survey don't ever give up your social security number 2) Never give out your credit card numbers 3) Get a free online telephone number and or fax number 4) Set up a specified email address for ONLY surveys and or focus group.
Following the 4 steps above will keep you safe from identity theft and spam. I mentioned never giving out your CC info... There is one exception when you're doing trial offers they are going to request that you have a CC. It's really quite simple to get around this. If you have a CC with Citibank I know that they will give you one time use numbers. With this you can provide the number to them then cancel this number online with Citibank... Be sure to cancel though as they might try to recharge the card. The second option is to go to your grocery store or walmart and purchase a prepaid CC for around $20. I think there is an activation fee of 2.95 as well. But I have found that with the $20 Giftcard at the right sites you can submit trial offers for about 200-300 bucks in return.

Your 2 Cents
Earn $1-$5 for each survey completed. I have used this site many times. When you register be sure to take the time to fill out your profile! Its worth while believe me they will pay you extra for each survey you take the first time with that category. I made plenty from it.
I like this company because of the Qualboards. I have made a few hundred from the Message boards they do. They have ranged from Cleaners to homeowner issues. Most of the forum boards/ focus groups are down to earth and pertain to most anyone so they seem to be fairly easy to get into!
IceBox Advisory Panel
I believe this panel is only food related. Their surveys usually are few and far between but I think I have made about 26 bucks with them after about 9 surveys. They usually pay 1-3 bucks per survey. (Not taking new applicants as of 9/27)
Ipsos not only asks for your opinions on a wide variety of topics but also offers the chance to win cash and prizes for participating in their online surveys.

I have made about $100 from this company over the last few months. Their surveys are only here and there for me. They are a more technology oriented type survey company so it would probably be good if you worked in the IT type capacity. However, I have also had a few that were just about board games go figure! Either way it never hurts to try when they want to pay for your opinions :)
