How many survey sites should I sign up to?

You can soon run out of available surveys, so If you want to get a steady part-time income from them, we recommend signing up to them all.

How long does it take to actually get the money into my bank account?

Most survey sites require a certain amount (generally between £10-£25) before you can withdraw any money into voucher, paypal or bank transfer.

Once you request a withdrawal, it will generally take between a couple of hours to a couple of days.

What should I watch out for? How do I spot a fake?

Everyday we see our competitors display adverts or even post text links to fake/scam survey websites, most of them are like “Do you want to test the latest <insert name of desired product> and get to keep it?”

The survey sites we’ve listed have been around for several years and are all the market leaders so we suggest you start there, the best way to spot a fake is by seeing if they’re offering something too good to be true, i.e. a free product (worth £100s+), no company in their right mind will be doing that. Not even the manufactures of these products give people products to test.
