e-rewardsFriends and colleagues often ask me about online surveys and how much money can be made with them.   Over the last couple of months, I did a small sampling  of some of the more well known and more reputable survey sites out there and was able to make some money.  Are you going to become a millionaire doing this?  I don’t think so.  But if you become affiliated with a great number of survey web sites you should be able to make some money for the time you put in.  In the 3 months of my testing (which was very part time), I was able to make approximately $325.  Not a lot, but instead of the kids spending 24 hours a day text messaging and killing their summer time on Myspace.com and other social networking sites, why not put them to work doing this?  And it’s also cool way for those that are too young to get a summer job, to make a little cash for themselves.  Teaching our children a little entrepreneurship, time management and the value of earning a dollar can never be a bad thing. Below are some of the survey networks I was involved with.  In no particular order and my apologies to any I’ve missed.
