Last week, I made you a list of the top 10 best survey panels. I know that a lot of you who take surveys for extra cash also occasionally use rewards sites, or, as they are sometimes called, “Get Paid to” sites for extra cash.
This week, I've decided to make a list of some really quality reward sites. If you're not familiar with these, they usually offer a variety of ways you can earn, not limited to just taking surveys. You can earn a little money by completing offers, watching videos, shopping, printing off coupons, playing games, and much more.
There are a ton of these sites out there so it might be hard to know which ones are worth the trouble, but these five are some of the more reputable ones:
5 Rewards Sites That Are Worth The Time
#1 – Swagbucks
Swagbucks is more “search and win” to most people, but it does fall into the GPT/rewards category because they do pay you in Swagbucks for filling out offers, watching videos, answering short polls, etc. Swagbucks also has an awesome app for Apple and Android that you can use to earn even more Swagbucks every week for watching videos. This is probably the most reputable of all sites of this type.
#2 – Inbox Dollars
Very old, very reputable site. A lot of people use this one and they have tons of ways you can earn. Inbox Dollars will send you an actual check when you can cash out, so no points here. My main problem with Inbox Dollars is the high cashout threshold. You'll have to have accumulated $30 to be able to request your first check. Still, they are known for paying and they have a good reputation. If you are interested in using reward/GPT sites, this would be a worthy one to add to the mix of sites you do use.
#3 – Fusion Cash
Fusion Cash is another old, reputable rewards site. Noticing a trend? I definitely prefer to use the sites that have a solid reputation and good track record, so most I recommend have some age. I have been a member of Fusion Cash, but I never did much with it. They will pay you for taking surveys, filling out offers, and also for completing small tasks, like little micro-jobs. They are recommended often by others.
#4 – Earning Station
This rewards site has been around since 2011, but I've only recently been hearing much about them. EarningStation is known for paying fast if you request virtual gift cards and Paypal cash once you've reached the amount to redeem. If you request physical (mailed) gift cards, it can take up to 4-6 weeks to get them.
#5 – InstaGC
This site is a good one for two reasons — the rewards are sent to you instantly and you only need $1 in your account to cash out. I've been using InstaGC for a long time now, and I've never not been paid. While they mostly do gift cards for hundreds of different retailers (including the big ones like Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, etc.), you can also get Paypal cash.
Go here to sign up for InstaGC.
So those are my reward site suggestions. There are other good ones out there. Please let us know in the comments what legitimate sites you use!
