My favorite sites to use for extra money are almost always going to be the ones that don’t make me wait long to get paid. I like to hit that cash out button and get paid as soon as possible after I see I have money waiting for me in my account. I thought today would be a good day to make a list of some of the sites and apps that pay you the fastest. If you know of any others I didn’t list, please share them below in the comments.
List of Sites That Pay You Fast
#1 – Opinion Outpost
This is very highly rated survey panel. They didn’t pay that fast before, but they’ve made some changes and now if you request a Paypal payment from them, you’ll usually see it within a day or sooner. You have to have $10 to cash out to Paypal.
#2 – QuickThoughts
If you want to make some extra spending money via Amazon gift cards from your phone or tablet, this is a great app for it. Users are able to hit the cash out minimum of $10 quickly and once you have that amount, you can get your gift card code immediately upon request. Go here to download the app on your Android or iPhone and get started.
#3 – Qmee
This is a simple browser addon that you install and it will present you with a side bar full of relevant products to click on when you perform a search for something. Clicking on the items will reward you with a few cents or as much as a dollar. They now offer surveys as a way to earn, too! You can install the Qmee addon in Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer and Opera. The pay is basically instant and you only need a penny to cash out! It goes straight to Paypal within a few minutes, usually. Go here to register at Qmee.
#4 – Pinecone Research
This is a survey panel that pays $3 a survey. You can expect your money within a day if you choose Paypal or within a few days if you’re mailed a paper check.
They are not always open, but you can sign up now.
#5 – Swagbucks
One of the best! This is basically the most popular reward site, and they’ve paid out over $40 million dollars to users since they got started. I’ve used this site and been paid many, many times. Amazon and Paypal are the two most popular options for redemption, although there are other things to choose from, too. You only need 500 SB in your account to get a cash out on Swagbucks, and it’s realistic to get a couple every week if you use this site consistently. Payouts are also fast. You can expect a payment sometimes within 48 hours, although it says in their terms to give them up to 10 days.
I’ve talked about this smartphone app quite a lot, and it is one of my favorites to use. How fast they pay is one good reason why I like them so much! You use it while you are out shopping. They have a lot of products listed on their offer wall, mostly grocery products, and if you buy those while you’re out, you can upload your receipt to Ibotta and they’ll pay you back some actual cash for proving you bought the item(s). You only need $20 to get paid to Paypal, and they send it almost instantly after you request it.
#7 – Paid Viewpoint
Another survey panel that pays fast, but you do have to have $15 in your account before you can cash out. This can take a while to reach if you don’t have a lot of referrals. They are owned by the same people that run Instant Cash Sweepstakes. Typically payment comes to Paypal the same day you request it, although it has taken up to three days before.
#8 – TreasureTrooper
This is another GPT site like many others, but definitely worth signing up for if you like instant payments. Complete surveys, offers, play games and more to earn cash. Once you’ve earned $20, you can cash out immediately to your PayPal account. Also, if you’re looking for jobs for teens, you’ll be happy to know this site lets you sign up as a teen with parental consent.
#9 – Mindfield
Another fantastic survey panel that still pays users in cash, not redeemable points. In the past, this site only paid out via check, but they’ve recently added Paypal as an option. Also, Paypal payments here are much faster than if you request a check. If you cash out via Paypal, you’ll see your earnings sometimes within 5-10 business days.
Go here to become a member at Mindfield. This panel is not always open to new members.
So the sites above might be good to use if you need access to a few things where you don’t have to wait long redeem. Do you know of any others? Please share in the comments!
