Making money with surveys

July 21, 2008 6:03:24 PM PDT
Looking for legitimate ways to make money or get free stuff? Dozens of reputable websites want your opinion in exchange for free products and services. On, earn up to 100 points when you complete a survey. Once you reach 1,000, redeem those points for rewards - anything from books to electronics!

Fill out your profile for specialized marketing firms and you can test a product or a service and provide feedback. BzzAgent, VocalPoint, and Shespeaks are examples.

Register to become a host at House Party and the company will send you party packs you can use as freebies for your guests.

Looking to make cold, hard cash? Sign up for offline focus groups. You'll make between 30 and 100-dollars for appearing in-person to interact with marketers.

If you have a website or social network profile, make money by promoting and recommending products that you like to your visitors.

Never pay to take a survey or give your opinion. No legitimate site will require you to pay to register or get stuff shipped. Also, do not respond to unsolicited emails or pop-ups, but DO register with several legitimate sites to increase your chance of being considered for participation.
