For many years, I have looked for fun and easy ways to make money online during my free time. Ideally, it would be interesting, not require too much commitment at a specific time of the day or week, and it would pay cash directly to my bank account.
Well, I found Survey Junkie a few years back, and they checked off all of the boxes! It’s been so helpful whenever I have needed some extra cash.
Earning up enough to cash out the first time goes pretty quickly! Here are a few tips to get halfway there, before you even take a research survey!
Get Started: Earn 25 points for just signing up
Signing up is so easy. Just provide some basic information such as your name, email, zip code, date of birth, and gender.
Bonus Points: Earn 25 Additional Points for confirming your email
After signing up, check your inbox to confirm your email address to earn an extra 25 points!
Pro Tip: Earn 50 Additional Points By Completing Your 15 Profile Question and also Match to More Surveys
When you log in, you’ll see a profile questionnaire. Fill this out to earn an easy 50 points. The reason Survey Junkie asks these 15 profile questions is so that they can better match you to surveys that you will qualify for. This increases your likelihood of being matched to the right surveys from Market Research companies and brands.
$5, the Lowest Redeemable Amount in the Industry (That is Only 500 Points)
After signing up and filling out all of the questions, you should have 75 points in your account. In order to cash out for your first time, you will only need 500 points (which is $5), which means you are well on your way and it only took a few minutes!
Unlock 150 Points by Downloading the Pulse Extension
If you want to make some points right away without much effort, and you want to take surveys on your desktop, download the browser extension. The extension is their way of delivering surveys in the quickest manner possible. (The notifications are super handy, particularly if you’re slow to check emails!) If you download the extension, you will get 150 points right away, and even closer to cashing out. Please note that you must have the extension active for at least 30 days in order to cash out on those points so this one will take some time but still, that is free money!
If you do all four things above, you will have 250 points. This means that you are 50% to the point of cashing out!
Super Fast Payouts at Every $5
After signing up and filling out all of the questions and verifying your email, you should have 100 points in your account. In order to cash out for your first time, you will only need 500 points (which is $5), which means you are well on your way and it only took a few minutes!
This is also another reason I love Survey Junkie: their $5 payouts are the lowest threshold in the industry, meaning you can cash out faster & more often.
If you did the Pulse extension mentioned above, that will get you another 150 points. You’ll need to keep the extension active for 30 days to get these points.
