The website also has a badge system consisting of three levels- Bronze, silver, and gold. You can move up level by collecting credits, which you’ll get after completing surveys and other activities. The higher the level, the more opportunities.
Rewards: PayPal, Gift cards
Average amount per survey: Up to $3 (300 points)
Minimum to cash out: $10
Pinecone Research is a little more unconventional than the rest. Every survey pays a minimum of $3, and usually only take about 15 minutes or less to complete. You may also get a chance to test (and keep) products, which makes it fun! However, it’s hard to get into as they restrict access only to certain demographics, which may keep changing based on who they’re targeting at the time. Moreover, you’re only likely to get a maximum of a few surveys a month. The site will automatically notify and send you surveys that qualify for- so at least you don’t waste time searching for one! ⏰
Rewards: PayPal, Cheque, VISA gift card
Average amount per survey: $3
Minimum to cash out: $3
