    Online survey panels have made me a few extra quid (approx £25) a month from just completing surveys that are sent to me! YouGov, Tribe Village, Crowdlogy and EasyOpinions are my favourites in terms of getting a decent cash incentive, what panels are you subscribed to and how much do you guys earn each month? If you haven't already this is the easiest way to make cash so join some panels now and spread the word! :bumps::dancing:

    Real money you can transfer to PayPal once you reach a certain threshold. Some sites do vouchers as well so look at what they are offering and pick ones that suits you

    While surveys are one of the easiest ways to make money the return is absolutely dreadful. £25 over a month (or even a week) is a rubbish return for what probably amounts to more than a few hours work.

    In terms of return for low investment no risk matched betting is generally a much better alternative. You can make that £25 in less than an hour and make far more substantial returns when you know what you're doing.

    And I'll also point out the obvious here. Don't you have something better to do with the time? Maybe you have an hour to spare a day which you use to complete surveys. Imagine if you put that hour elsewhere. I'm not suggesting you use it to complete school work (although the monetary benefit down the line is far greater) but that is one alternative. But imagine if you invested that time in a business idea. Maybe you use it to design and sell T Shirts, or sell web pages, or tutor, or write a blog. All of which have potentially better returns.

    Surveys are great for kids that want a few extra pennies but if you're serious about making money in your spare time they're a terrible idea.

    Thanks for your insight Acsel, appreciate any words of wisdom here. Survey participation for me is generally for fun when i have a gap between my lessons at college or on the bus on the way home from work. Starting your own business takes a lot of time, effort and stress which i don't currently have / want before going to uni, so survey participation for me is just something that i can do in the little bits of spare time i have to earn some very quick easy cash! Love that attitude though! :five:

    If you enjoy surveys then that's totally fine. Make the most of your time that way and the cash is a bonus. I remember an old app I had on my phone that rewarded you with money for scanning receipts with specific items. It was small amounts but it was free and added up. Little stuff like that that don't require any effort are nice.

    Businesses was a bit of an extreme example. I had an old YouTube channel that I uploaded a video to once a week. It took less than an hour to make, edit and upload the videos. This was about 2 years ago and I've since stopped but I recently got my first £60 out of it. If you were invested in doing something like this you'd make decent money.

    I guess the whole point is to look for things that are relevant to you. I'll be starting a blog soon, partly with the intention of making money, partly to chronicle my journey at uni and partly because practicing HTML will help me with one of my units.

    The longer the surveys the more cash you'll earn, some are boxes you have to tick, some are images you click and some are boxes where you write your answer in. Some interesting topics do come up though and if you have spare time that otherwise would be spent doing nothing then why not get some quick cash ay? :happy2:
