Survey Apps to Make Money Online

This article may contain affiliate links. See our full disclosure for more information.

I talk about surveys and survey apps a lot, probably because they were the first way I ever started to make any money online, and whilst not quite as much as I used to, I still do them now to make some extra monthly income. It’s definitely one of the easiest ways to make some extra pennies in your spare time.

I love to use money making apps on my phone, I have LOADS and survey apps feature pretty heavily! I like using them because I can just do a couple surveys while watching TV or I can lie in bed and do them for a few minutes in the evening. It doesn’t feel like a chore because you can just open one up whenever and where ever you feel like it. It’s completely flexible.

You’re not going to get rich with survey apps (sorry) but it’s a simple way to earn yourself some extra cash every month, or a great way of saving up for special occasions or for holiday spending money. I like to cash out in Amazon gift cards, so I can just add them to my Amazon account and save them to use for Christmas presents.

Survey apps for extra cash:


Voxpopme is one of the more interesting survey apps, as it’s a video response app. Each survey consists of a question and you simply record yourself answering with your opinions for a minimum of 30 seconds. Because of this it’s one of the quickest survey apps to use. Each survey is paid in cash and once you’ve earned £10 you can claim your money into PayPal.

1Q is a very easy question and answer app. Short and simple, they’ll let you know when there’s a new question, you select your answer and they put $0.25 or $0.50 into your PayPal account. That’s pretty much all there is to it.

Survey Bods

Survey bods is another easy survey app. Each survey is worth an amount of points which are equal to pennies. Once you reach 1500 points you can cash out for £15. You can choose to claim your reward as an Amazon voucher or bank transfer. As well as points you also earn tickets for each survey which will be entered into a monthly prize draw.

Qmee is a survey app (you can also add as a browser extension.) There are usually surveys available every day, but you may screen out quickly if you don’t meet the target demographic. With Qmee you can cash out any amount and it will be paid immediately to your PayPal account. Alternatively, you can request to be paid in Amazon vouchers.

Citizen Me

The best thing about Citizen Me is that you are paid automatically every time you complete a survey. The only downside is that surveys can be few and far between. Regardless it’s worth having for the instant payment and not having to accrue a balance. The app will notify you when there’s a new questionnaire to answer.

Enlightly is one of my favourite survey apps because the surveys are so quick and easy to complete. Each individual question is usually worth 5p and the app will send a notification when new questions are available.  There are cash bonuses too for answering 50 and 100 questions.

Vypr is a survey app that typically asks questions about your food and shopping habits. Questions are called ‘steers’ and usually consist of showing you a pictures of products and asking which you would choose.

Each steer is worth so many points and once you’ve reached 10,000 you can cash out for £10.
