If you enjoy paid surveys, you might also enjoy taking smartphone surveys. This is a great way to make a little extra cash while you're waiting around or just bored. There are several different survey apps you can download to your phone, and today I've made a list of them for you along with some details about each one:
Ways To Take Smartphone Surveys and Get Paid
This popular panel, best known for the movies and entertainment-related questions, now has a way for you to download an app and take their surveys on the go.
E-Poll also has a pretty low cash-out threshold, making it easy to redeem when you want. Currently, most of their rewards only require that you have $3 in your account (the equivalent of 3,750 points).
I love this site because there are so many ways to earn through them. You can view videos, read emails, take surveys and tons of other things. They have both web-based and mobile platforms so it's convenient to interact with on your phone or device. I've been a member for a long time and they've always paid. Lots of good ways to redeem, including gift cards to popular restaurants.
If you're interested in politics and current events, you'll really enjoy this panel because that's what their surveys are all about! They offer mobile surveys that ask you questions about things that are going on in the news.
YouGov is well-known, reputable, and their research is sometimes quoted by major media outlets. You can earn money taking their web-based or mobile surveys.
This panel has been around for a long time, but they only recently jumped on the mobile surveys bandwagon. You only need $20 to cash out your earnings, and you can redeem your points for everything from Amazon gift cards to airline miles. Sometimes you can even get in on product tests with this panel.
You may have heard of LifePoints. It's a very popular survey panel open to anyone ages 16 and up, and they are open outside the US (25 other countries in addition to the US). They're currently looking for mobile users to join up and do some surveys for cash and rewards!
You can redeem your points for gift cards or cash once you hit the minimum points required — 5,500 points, equivalent of $5.
This one's for mobile users and it's a pretty nice option. They post surveys frequently and have a low minimum cash out at $10. You can only redeem your rewards for Amazon gift cards at this point, but it's a popular app and definitely worth checking out.
