4 great paid survey apps to try if you want to earn a bit of extra cash

Published by Finn Hayden

Everyone is looking for a bit of extra cash at the moment, but not everyone has the time to get a second job, especially if it involves leaving the house.

This is why paid survey apps are so great - they’re the type of thing you can download and use while you’re sat on the sofa watching tv. Typically the surveys aren’t too intense and don’t require too much brain power, but you can still earn some good extra pocket money from them.

There are lots of paid survey apps that you can download to access surveys like this, so we thought it would be useful to round up the best paid survey apps that you can download. Let’s get into it:

Quick overview of top choices


Of all the paid survey apps that we tried for this guide, Eureka was the quickest to get started with - you don’t even need to verify your account, but if you do you’ll get access to priority customer service and you’ll also get access to the highest paying surveys. Since it started, Eureka has paid out more than £14 million to its users for completing surveys.

Once you’re setup, Eureka will show you just a handful of surveys to begin with. This is because the app will use the information that you input into the first few surveys to match you with more surveys. For the first few surveys you’ll earn just under £1 per survey, but potential earnings can increase as you do more surveys.

Eureka also has an excellent range of payout options - you can get your payout via PayPal or Visa, but there are also lots of great gift card payout options including John Lewis, TK Maxx, and even Tesco, so completing these surveys can pay for your weekly shopping.

If you don’t have the energy to complete a survey then there are daily polls which appear on the app every day. These polls only ask 1 question and you get 1p for your answer. It’s a nice way to make a few extra pennies each day and it can add up at the end of the month. Learn more and download it here from the Google Play Store and here from the Apple App Store.

We’ll start by saying that signing up for SurveyParty is a little clunky - you can’t paste the verification code into the app for example, meaning you have to memorise it from your email. But once you’ve created an account and you’re into the app, it’s very good. With every survey that you do via the SurveryParty app, you have to complete a few starter questions to see if you qualify for the survey. If you do, then you can complete the rest of the survey and collect your payment. You’ll find surveys on just about every topic, from sports to fitness. Many of the surveys ask for detailed answers, but the payouts are good on SurveyParty so we think those longer surveys are worth the efffort. You can get paid via PayPal, Visa, Amazon, as well as other gift cards. We’re really impressed to see that this app has a rating of 4.5 out of 5 from more than 8000 reviews on the Google Play store. Learn more and download it here from the Google Play Store and here from the Apple App Store.

The Qmee app is easy to set up and allows you to start answering surveys within seconds of downloading the app.

We saw some pretty low payouts for surveys - for example, we found a travel related survey on the app which takes an estimated 8 minutes to complete and would only pay about 60p. But all of the surveys we tried in the app were really simple and didn’t require very much brainpower at all. You have to create an account to use Qmee, but it’s totally free and pretty quick to do. The app says it takes 3 minutes but it took us more like 30 seconds. The app also has a very impressive of 4.3 out of 5 from more than 90,000 reviews on the Google Play Store.

You can get paid via PayPal or Venmo, or you can choose a gift card payment. The app is free to download, learn more and download it here from the Google Play Store and here from the Apple App Store.

AttaPoll is a really quick paid survey app to get started with - you don’t need to create a password to get an AttaPoll account, you just need to enter your email address and phone number and you’ll get sent a verification code. The topics of the surveys can vary a lot and can be related to anything from health to automobiles. AttaPoll will payout to PayPal, Revolut, and Skrill, as well as in various gift cards, and the payout threshold is low at just $10 minimum. Attapoll also has a very impressive rating of 4.3 out of 5 on the Google Play Store from almost 200,00 reviews.
