Our Favourite Best Survey Sites For UK-Top10 That’s Worth It
Welcome To Our Best Survey Sites For The UK
Hi Guys! I know that a lot of us like taking surveys to earn a few extra bucks no matter how frustrating and time-consuming taking surveys can be.
So today we want to share with you guys our most favourite ones that will be worth your time and effort.
Starting with a list of our Best Survey Sites for UK. Even though this is listed having the UK in mind, people from other countries can also benefit from some of the sites.
Very soon we will be making a list specifically for the US, Canada, and African countries, so make sure to keep popping back in.
Let’s get started in no particular order…
Our Top 10 Favourite Survey Sites For The UK
Owner: Bradley & Damer
Payment Method: PayPal
Minimum Threshold: £5.
Prolific formerly known as Prolific Academy is a crowdsourcing platform that provides researchers with the right participants they need for their research studies and ensures that these participants get paid after completing a study.
Prolific surveys are quite interesting as they have to do with academics, you learn exciting new things from participating in these studies and also get paid.
The time for taking these surveys varies from researcher to researcher and the amount that you will get paid.
Unlike most regular surveys that will pay you more with the more time you spend completing surveys, with Prolific the amount paid varies not depending on the time spent.
For example, a survey of 10 minutes may pay you £1.00 while a survey of just 5 minutes will pay you much more at £1.80. So it all depends on the researchers.
The great thing like I said earlier is that you don’t get screened out of surveys, though some may come with a specific requirement.
For example, a survey you qualify for may need for you to use a webcam to interact in the cause of the study but if you are someone that is camera shy, you may then not take the survey.
Or you may be required to use a specific device to complete the survey in which case you may not be able to do so if you don’t have that specific device.
So when you receive an invite it is left for you to make sure you meet up with such requirements, which if you don’t, might affect your payment or you may not be able to complete the survey.
Another thing to note is that they have a time frame for you to complete each study as they call the surveys.
For example, if a study is meant to last 5 minutes, you may be given a time frame of 25 minutes instead to complete the survey.
If you are unable to complete it within that time frame, you will receive a timed out notification, which means you won’t get paid for that survey.
Prolific ensure that the surveys are paid at an hourly rate of at least £5.50, which means even if a survey is about 15 minutes, you don’t get paid less than £1.37.
These researchers are generous that sometimes you earn much more than the stated hourly rate.
The best I have come across so far was a study that paid £7.50 for just 45 minutes study.
Sometimes some researchers even offer bonus during their study, so if you are lucky, you get paid for taking part in the study and also get additional payment as a bonus.
This bonus mainly comes to people who go an extra length to complete these surveys, like when asked if you have any additional thing to say about the survey, you go ahead and add something meaningful.
Payments are made on Tuesdays and Fridays and you need to request for payment before 4 p.m on the said days to get paid that same day.
After a few initial payments, you will start receiving instant PayPal payouts, which means you can request and get paid at any time or day.
You will need to create an account with Prolific using the signup form on their home page
Fill in details like your name, age, email and password, etc.
You will be sent an activation link in an email
Be sure to click through that link to fully activate your account.
Next, you will need to answer some profiling questions, these help them tailor surveys to your interest.
To maximise your chances of making more money with Prolific, you should install their browser extension as this will alert you once a study is available.
Waiting to receive email invites may leave you not achieving much because they hardly send out email invites.
Except occasionally, and when they have a follow-up survey from a researcher then they will send you a link to continue with that survey.
Owner: Submission Technology
Payment Method: PayPal & Bacs
Minimum Threshold: £10.
Ohmydosh is one of the newest Gtp(get paid to) site that allows you to complete activities to earn money. It picked up momentum right from its very start in 2018 and is still making waves till date.
Ohmydosh is slightly different from our regular survey panels because they offer you the opportunity to participate in other activities order than taking surveys.
But I had to include it in this list because unlike the other GTP sites who provide you with the regular surveys, OhMyDosh just provides you with the opportunity to make money by just signing up with survey sites.
With OhMyDosh you can only sign up to survey sites and make money for doing so but you don’t get to participate on those sites through their platform.
For example, in the screenshot below you can see a list of survey sites you can register with, and how much each will pay you for signing up with them.
That is what OhMyDosh offers you, once you signup with any of these survey panels and complete at least one survey ( it could be your profiling survey) you will earn your reward.
Which means you don’t have to dabble with the frustration of being screened out of a survey, you just get paid for signing up with them.
Now if you decide to continue with any of the survey sites once you sign up with them, you will have to do that directly on their website with no further relations to OhMyDosh.
OhMyDosh has started incorporating surveys into their own platform so that you can now take surveys directly with them and get paid for that.
Aside from the surveys, you still have so many other ways you can make money with OhMyDosh like taking trial offers, paid offers that will save you money, getting cashback in your Shopping, gambling ( if you are into that), great deals on utility and energy bills, and a lot more…
Although with GTP sites you can complete most offers just once, so you can only make money from most of the offers once, the good thing is that new offers keep pouring in regularly.
OhMyDosh makes payment via PayPal and your bank account.
Note that OhMyDosh does not accept Monzo as BACS, so if you have a Monzo account only, it may be wise to sign up for a PayPal account to make things easier.
Their minimum threshold is £10 and they usually pay in less than 48 hours after the request.
All you need do is create an account with OhMyDosh by filling in your details in their signup form and submit.
They will send you an email with an activation link.
Just click on the link to fully activate your account, and you are good to go.
You will receive £2.00 Bonus just for signing up and completing your profile.
Owner: St. John Deakins
Payment Method: Instant PayPal Payment
Minimum Threshold: none
CitizenMe is an app that allows you to take quick and short surveys and get paid instantly.
The surveys take between 1 minute to 5 minutes at most, so they are very short and quick.
CitizenMe pays you anything between £0.10 to £0.20 or £1 to £2 at most for those surveys that may last up to 5 minutes.
Though the surveys usually come with numbers rather than time duration, for example, you may receive a survey that will pay £0.20 and it will show you that its only three questions you need to answer.
Some surveys may come with just one question, 10 questions or 18 questions, and their payments will vary too but not depending on how many questions you answer.
And once you complete a survey, the payment will be paid instantly to your PayPal account.
It doesn’t matter how much the surveys are worth, even if it is $0.10p, the money just goes straight to your PayPal account.
The best part is that once you start filling the “insight” aspect of the survey that doesn’t pay, you unlock access to different communities, and with this comes the higher-paying surveys and more surveys to be completed.
The only throwback to CitizenMe is that the surveys don’t come in frequently.
CitizenMe has both users and brands sign up on the same page on their website, to avoid getting confused as to which one is for the users, simply download their app from the App Store or Google Play and then sign up from it.
You will get emailed an activation link, click on it to fully activate your account.
Once in you will need to fill in your profiling questions.
These questions will help them tailor surveys to your interest.
4. Pinecone Research
Name: Pinecone Research
Owner: Nelson Company
Payment Method: PayPal, Cheque or Gift cards
Minimum Threshold: 300 points (£3)
Pinecone is another great surveys site without the hassles.
Pinecone Research panel pays you £3 for every survey you complete on their website, and even more for product testing.
Their surveys are mainly about consumer research and can take anything between 10 to 15 minutes.
So if you are opportune to get about 3 to 4 of such surveys a day, that makes $9 to $12 in about an hour or less.
Which I believe is one of the best deal in the survey industry.
Secondly, if you qualify you will get to test products before they hit the market, and even get paid for it.
In some cases, you may be asked to keep the product.
The only problem when it comes to registering with Pinecone is that you must be invited by an already existing member or one of their affiliates.
It is difficult to get direct access to its registration.
To join them, you will need to signup using someone else’s link, or link from a blog, social media or ads.
Once you can secure a link, then it’s just to fill in your basic details,
Like your name, age, phone number, email and password.
You will then answer a few profiling questions and agree to their terms and conditions and then submit.
If you are accepted, they will send you an acceptance email notification and if not, you will be told immediately.
In some occasion, they will decline your application if you are not accepted, while in other cases they may keep your details for longer to contact you when they need people that fit your demographic within a period.
The good news is that even if you don’t get accepted immediately you can keep trying until it happens.
It has come to our notice that Pinecone now does a pre-screening question before taking surveys.
Which means you can now be invited to take surveys and end up not qualifying for them.
But not to lose hope as you can only get screened out at the beginning, which saves you time than when you are halfway through.

The best part of this app is that just like CitizenMe, you don’t need to reach a certain threshold to get paid. You can always request for payment immediately you earn a dime.

Name: Mindswarms (video surveys)
Owner: Bassett And Partners
Payment Method: PayPal
Minimum Threshold: $50
Mindswarms is a market research panel that allows you to participate in paid research in the form of Video survey reviews and pays you $50 to $75 for each one you successfully complete.
Mindswarm is a US-based panel but offer surveys to people in the UK, which is why they pay you in dollars.
We can’t help but include it here because of the high amount paid for each survey you are successful with.
The only downside to Mindswarms is the fact that it is only video-based and if you are the type that doesn’t like being seen on camera then this is not for you.
Although I would encourage you to take a bold step and give it a try, let the amount paid as a reward be your motivation. And you will see that in time you will become natural.
You can signup to Mindswarm on your Laptop or desktop making sure you have a webcam on either one or you can signup by downloading the app on your phone.
Next is to create your profile where you will be required to submit a sample video to confirm that your camera works and is of good quality.
Then you answer some few more questions to help them tailor surveys to your interest.
Once your account has been approved, you can then go ahead to select from available surveys that match your profile.
