There are various programs online that offer to money for taking surveys. Some are worth your time & effort and others take up tons of time with very little pay off. Below are some various programs that you can sign up for, take surveys, and actually receive a payout.
Lightspeed Panel is a great site that offers several surveys a week ranging from 75-500 points per survey. I find that I am eligible for most of the surveys I receive & if I am not, I receive an entry into the weekly 5,000 points sweepstakes.
You can redeem points for various products or cash via paypal.
To redeem via paypal it is 575 points per $5. You can redeem by paypal in increments of $5. Once you hit 575 points, there’s no reason to wait to redeem. The point to cash ratio is the same regardless of how many points you have and you can redeem as often as you like. You receive your payment at Paypal within one week, but usually quicker.

MySurvey.com sends several qualification surveys each week that are worth 10-50 points and then you may be eligible to either fill out another survey or try a product which they will send you in the mail for anything ranging from 50-750 (maybe more) points.
You can also earn 150 points for every person you refer that signs up for MySurvey.com.
You can redeem the points for a check which is promptly mailed to you. 1000 points equals $10 and you must have a minimum of 1000 points to redeem. I have accumulated over 7500 points since being a member of Mysurvey.com.

Globaltestmarket sends a survey about every day. If you do not qualify for the survey you will still receive 5 points for the qualification questions. If you do qualify, the survey can be anywhere from 35-100 points.
Once you reach 1000 points you can redeem for a check. 1000 points equals $50. The 1000 points is readily attainable and the check is sent quickly. You can also earn a quick 100 points by filling out 10 profile surveys on the website.

Viewpoint forum does not have as many surveys as the other programs listed, but is still a great site and a quick earner. You will typically receive a qualifying survey that is for 20-40 points. Then if you qualify you will usually be asked to try out a product. Viewpoint will send you a product to try out and review. You will fill out a survey on the product 50-500 points (usually around 200). Once you hit 375 points (equal to $10) you may redeem for a check which is promptly mailed to you.
Viewpoint forum has recently changed to referral only & the referral system is temporarily disabled. You can Google to see if you can find an invite online or message me and when they reset the referral system I will happily send you a referral e-mail.
