An increasingly popular way for students to make money is to fill out
online surveys in their spare time. Research companies are always
recruiting new members to answer surveys and test new products.
For a few minutes of form filling, you can make a couple of quid
which is paid as cash or rewards. You can bag up to £3 ($5) for some
A few good ones to try are: Toluna, Vivatic, OnePoll, MySurvey, SurveyBods, Valued Opinions, The Opinion Panel, YouGov, PopulusLive, Global Test Market, Pinecone, IPSOS, Hiving, PanelBase, MintVine, Opinion Outpost, Harris Poll, Mind Mover, New Vista, iPoll.
Also sign up for Swagbucks which rewards you for surveys as well as simply surfing the web, watching videos and playing games.
