Online UK Surveys
All the online UK survey companies detailed on this page are free to join and will pay you in money, vouchers, or some other form of reward. The surveys generally should only take up a couple of minutes of your time to answer a few questions on your opinions about a wide range of subjects, such as the films you watch, music you listen to, type of car you drive and the type of food you eat.
So what’s the catch I hear you thinking - well there isn’t one. The survey companies find it beneficial to perform the surveys online because they can target the correct audience, thanks to the information you enter when you register to join a survey site. This saves them time and money as otherwise they would have to pay someone to stand in a shopping centre, trying to find people who meet the criteria and then persuade them to participate. Online surveys are much more practical and cost efficient for the survey companies plus you can complete the surveys in your own time in your own home.
If participating in surveys sounds like an easy way for you to earn some extra money, then sign up with some of the survey companies below and start to make money by telling people what you really think of them and their products.
