At MoneyMagpie we’re big fans of paid online surveys.

We think they’re a good way to make a bit of extra cash without having to put too much effort in – in fact you can read our complete guide to online surveys here.

But you still might not be sure which online survey sites are worth your time.

As Nick Green from Swagbucks explains, “taking paid surveys online is a great way to make money in your spare time…but you have to be patient and find the survey panel that works for you.”

That’s why we’ve taken the time to review every survey site we promote, so you know which ones you can trust, and which ones you should avoid.
