The best site that I’ve found in this neck of the woods is Prolific.  You fill in some details about yourself and studies are sent to you, which can be completed in a very short space of time.  Your submissions, if complete and accepted, get converted into cash rewards.  Once you reach £5, the money is paid directly into your paypal account.  Easy and you can while away 5-10 minutes in the name of research.  Click here to get started!

You could also sign up to Swagbucks!  It is a rewards / loyalty program that is based in California, under the auspices of Prodege LLC. You collect SB (Swagbucks) in various different ways through surveys, surfing the net and much more.  Allegedly Swagbucks has paid out over $241 million to their members, according to https://makeawebsite.com. How it works is that you can earn cashback through online purchases which you can then use to get cashback either in gift cards or get paid via PayPal; you can also opt to donate to various charitable causes.  Sign up through my referral code and you can earn USD10 simply for signing up!

You can surf the net through Swagbucks’ search engine which will earn points; watch videos and earn cash, do paid surveys and earn cash, play games, hunt down deals, purchase gift cards and earn points … It may not pay your rent or mortgage after a month’s use but it’s a useful little side hustle in terms of money making.

Other ways to earn money if you have a few minutes to while away are through:


20cogs (complete offers online – once you have 20 cogs turning green, it’s possible to cash out).  Great if you don’t mind completing lottery offers, Which trials and spending a bit of money to cash in a lot more!  Remember to cancel any trials if you don’t fancy paying their monthly subscription.

I find that these surveys often take a long time, and even longer to earn you any decent points or cash.  At the time of writing because I didn’t have “enough points” I was unable to cite a decent referral code; partly because I’m Ms Average so got screened out of a lot of them at source.

I still prefer Prolific though as you’re also supporting academic research students and the surveys are very straightforward and the cash is tangible from the word go!
