5 Paid Survey Sites.

Got some time to kill, or just surf your socials while binging on Netflix? Why not earn some £££s and take paid online surveys or test some free products? Be aware though not all are genuine… So, to help navigate that little mind field, here are 5 paid survey sites.

Opinion Panel.

Opinion panel is a community of over 140,000 students and graduates aged 16-30. Once you have signed up (they give you £10 credit for doing so) you’ll get survey invites via email or just log in to your account and take part.

You get between 50p and £4 per survey and once you hit 2500 points (its 1p per point) you get a £25 Voucher to spend in loads of online or high-street stores from TopShop to Amazon and Starbucks to PizzaHut.


I-Say by IPSOS.

i-Say is an online survey panel where you can participate in surveys and other types of market research to earn points which you can exchange for cash rewards and gift cards.

You can expect to receive at least 1 survey a month, or as many as 8, depending on your profile details matching up with the surveys themselves. Unlike Opinion Panel, i-Say has apps, available on Android and iOS, so you can complete surveys on the go.


YouGov is a little different to the other survey sites where you could be asked just about anything. Instead YouGov focuses more on current issues that are in the news and they encourage you to express your views.

You get £1 just for joining and if you get your friends to sign up too you can quickly get lots more points and cash.


Swagbucks are one of the largest, if not the largest paid survey site in the world. You get rewarded for playing games, taking offers, searching the web, making online purchases and watching videos there are 11 ways in total to earn rewards on Swagbucks.

To take the surveys as an example they usually take between 3 and 20 minutes to complete and you’ll earn around 40–100 points and 100 points are about 77p or to give you a better idea a £5 Amazon gift card will cost you 849 points.

Toluna sends daily online surveys that are paid to you as cash or vouchers. They work with leading brands who want to know what you think about certain products, services and issues.

You get between 1,200 and 50,000 points for completing a survey. On average they take 15 minutes to complete. £1 is approximately 5,500 points. Rewards can be spent in a load of places from ASOS to River Island and Starbucks to Costa. You can even plant a tree in return for your points!

Other survey sites include OnePollBranded Surveys, LifePoint and PopulusLive.

Getting serious about the environment we live in.

To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.

It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.
