SURVEYS

Online surveys are an easy source of cash but not the most reliable or entertaining source of cash. How most online surveys work is that completing them generates an onsite currency which can be exchanged for PayPal payments, or equivalent gift cards. We’ve checked what sites are legitimate so you don’t waste your time, but we want to put out these roles our quite dull, answering questions for surveys can get quite repetitive but we want to make sure you are aware of all the options available to you from home.
