Paid-surveysIt can be frustrating to sign up with a survey site expecting to get paid in cash for completing surveys only to find that the site will only pay you in either a gift card to a particular retailer or coupons of some kind. When you’re looking for cash, you want cash.

You’ll be pleased to learn that there are quite a number of survey sites that pay in cash, usually in the form of a check that is mailed to your home. There are also many who pay via check, a happy circumstance, because you can get your money pretty quickly this way, without the hassles of having to visit your bank to cash the check.

While getting paid by check means waiting longer to receive your money, there are a lot of reputable sites with excellent payment histories that will only pay by check. Among those sites are the following:

Mindfield online

You must also accumulate $10 in your account before you can request payment.

Located in Charleston, West Virginia, Mindfield Online features live product testing surveys as well as online surveys. If you live in the Charleston area, you may be able to boost your earnings with them by participating in this type of survey.

Global Test Market

You need to have 1,000 points in your account which is equal to $50 before you can request payment.

Global Test Market has been around for many years and is one of the safer survey companies to use. You’ll be notified of surveys for which you qualify by email.

American Consumer Opinion Panel

You need 1,000 points, the equivalent of $10, in your account in order to receive payment.

The name “American Consumer Opinion Panel” is a bit of a misnomer for this market research company because you can qualify to participate in its surveys from almost anywhere in the world.


There is no payment threshold and no points are needed. Checks are issued as soon as you complete your survey.

SurveySavvy doesn’t send out a whole lot of surveys. You may receive a few of them over the course of one week and not see any others for a while after that. Since you’ll receive up to $10 for a single survey, the payment rate makes this company worth joining.
