I started exploring making some money using surveys online in 2017.

Basically, you fill in your profile on these paid survey platforms and they reward you for your opinions on different issues.

The rewards are small but you can do them while on public transport or while watching shows. A little effort every day adds up. As of the day of the article, I have made over S$1,000 in money, vouchers and Google Play Credits from doing paid surveys.

I use the rewards to cover some of my expenses like telephone bills and groceries.

Doing paid surveys do not take up much brain power so it is what I am looking for. Instead of browsing through your social media news feed, you might as well spend the time doing paid surveys.

Here are the 5 paid survey sites and apps that work and I use up till today

  1. ApiaryBuzz
  2. Rakuten Insight Surveys
  3. HappyDot.sg
  4. Milieu
  5. Google Opinion Rewards

The information is accurate as of 14 March 2021.

A point to note is that the higher the amount you redeem, the higher the bonus is. If you do not need the money, you can consider redeeming only when you reach 1,500.

Rating – 4/5

I earned most of my money on surveys on Rakuten Insight Surveys. The surveys are really long and quite tedious to do but they pay really well. I usually select PayPal as my redemption option as it is cash and has a bonus factor if I wait to redeem at bigger amounts. However, a bad point for PayPal is that PayPal has a withdrawal fee for amounts below S$200. I would prefer if there is a PayNow option.

Rating – 3.5/5

They have a generous signup bonus (S$10 physical voucher). However, the surveys are hard to come by so it takes a very long time to reach a minimum balance for redemption. I have a bad experience with eVouchers as the stores have trouble scanning them on my phone. Physical vouchers are my choice of redemption but they take very long to arrive. I hope they will adopt PayNow as a redemption option in the near future.

Milieu is the best platform if you would like to start making some money with surveys. The app is sleek and easy to use. The surveys do not take up much time and are easy to do. There are also some interesting polls after you do surveys. PayNow direct transfer is also available.

Referral Code – C1Z31P9

For each user that signs up using my code and complete 7 surveys, both of us will earn an additional 500 points (S$0.54) each

This is limited to the first 100 people signing up via my link. Once I am close to 95 sign ups, I will update with another code. As of 30/8/2021, 19 people have signed up using my link.

According to the Milieu helpdesk, we both won’t get the bonus if you are the 101st person. If I didn’t update the code in time, I apologize in advance.

Rating – 3.5/5

The surveys are usually less than 3 questions long. However, you can only redeem the credits earned on the Google Play Store. You can use the credits earned to pay for subscriptions, apps or in-app-credits. Recently, I used my credits to buy two monthly passes for Genshin Impact.

TL, DR

Making some money via surveys is possible but it is not easy. Although the rewards are small, the small amounts will slowly add up. I would recommend first starting with ApiaryBuzz and Milieu. You can also sign up for HappyDot first and get a S$10 welcome voucher while waiting for the surveys to come in. If you have an appetite for more, you can then sign up for Rakuten Insights and Google Opinion.
