To my wonderful side hustlers at there, here’s another survey that I came across in my inbox. I filled out the survey myself, in case you’re wondering. Hell, they’re offering $150 to talk about finance consumer products and I’m all about the money.
Murray Hill National, a national market research firm, is looking for respondents to participate in a paid research study regarding

For those of you who are down with surveys, focus groups and market research studies, I have a link here for Murray Hill National. Now, I will say I don’t know entirely how reputable they are since I’ve never been selected. I’m not entirely a qualify-able candidate, but that doesn’t mean someone else isn’t.
Because anything you can make money from either sitting your butt or doing next to nothin’, I am so gamed. And if anyone is selected to participate in Murray Hill’s surveys before I ever am, let me know what you thought about it.
But seriously, though. I can’t remember the last time I paid for something I wanted with my own hard earned money. I spend money. On groceries, my internet, my cell phone bill, rent – obviously. But when it comes to the important-but-not-necessarily-life-sustaining-essentials, I am Amazon gift carding the hell out of those items. And I do it all (just about) with surveys. And I take a lot of surveys.
I’m a subscriber to the YouTube channel, The Financial Diet, as I’m always looking for great advice about saving money and earning extra money. And one their segments talked about 12 Side Hustles that can be done from the comfort of your bed. To be more practical, they probably should have said from their home, but same diff. Anywho, they brought up about surveys. Y’know, those online invitations to give up personal information for the sake of market research for promises of great rewards.
Well, I don’t know how great rewards always are but I can attest to the fact there are more legitimate surveys out there than I would I have guessed (allegedly). I, myself, have been using a few paid surveys for a while now. And when I said a while, I mean, for couple of years at least. And although it’s suggested to use surveys that pay out cash to supplement your income, I’ve used mine to supplement my spending.
No, I don’t go and try to spend more because of this new found money, but I will spend it on the things I was already planning to buy: hygiene products, hair care, etc. Oh! And on birthday gifts. Seriously. An Amazon gift card comes in so handy for birthday gifts. A coworker invited me to her son’s birthday party in July and he’s obsessed with legos and the Titanic. So I was able to find him a 1800-piece Titanic lego set for $32. I had saved up some digital Amazon gift cards that came out to $30. So, with taxes (no shipping because I’m a prime member) I came out pocket for $3-4. Best gift I ever bought.
The two survey sites I’ve use continuously used without any problems or scam like activity have been: PaidViewpoint and Spring Board America. Now, both sites have a minimum of how much money you first must earn before you can cash out, but if you have the patience and a few minutes of time here and there, it’s well worth the short effort.
Sites I’m currently exploring as I amp my survey game:
I’ll keep at it and see if they’re any good and report back.
