How Survey Junkie Works

survey junkie website

With Survey Junkie, you can participate in online surveys on your computer or using the app in order to earn rewards including cash paid to your PayPal account. US residents can receive gift cards and bank transfers as well. Creating an account is free and can be done via your Facebook or Google account.

Survey Lengths

The average length of time it takes to complete a survey with Survey Junkie is 15 minutes. The estimated time for completions is stated on survey invitations (or in the app).

Short Point Approval Times

Once you take a survey, it may take up to 24 hours to approve your points. Points do not expire as long as you are an active member. In order to be considered 'active', simply log in to your Survey Junkie account and complete a survey within a 12 month period.

Payment and Rewards

Earn Cash for Completing Surveys

With just $5 worth of survey earnings (500 points), you can 'cash out' your points balance for an instant PayPal payment. Note that you must redeem your full points balance when selecting the PayPal option for a payout. If you live in the USA, you can also choose to receive a bank transfer payment. Bank transfers are handled by a third-party partner and take 3-4 business days to complete.

Choose a Gift Card Instead

If you live in the USA, you can also choose to redeem your points for e-gift cards. e-gift cards are available in denominations of $5, $10, $15, $20, $25 and $50. You can choose from major retailers including Amazon, Target, Walmart, Sephora, Groupon, iTunes and Starbucks.

Earn Points for Disqualifications

If you attempt to complete a survey but get disqualified before you're able to finish it, Survey Junkie will still credit your account with 2-3 points. Payouts for surveys themselves vary and will depend on the length of the survey, how difficult it is to qualify, as well as other criteria.

Complete Profile Surveys to Earn Points and Get Better Matched

Survey Junkie has numerous profile surveys available to members in their account dashboards. Complete these profilers to earn 10 points for each completion, and benefit from being better matched to future surveys.

Community Features

Mobile App for Android and iOS

Survey Junkie has a mobile app available on Google Play, for Android phone users and on iTunes for iOS users. The app functions similarly to the website in that you can take surveys, check your available points balance, and redeem rewards. The app will notify you when new surveys become available, which can be helpful in reducing the chances of being disqualified from a survey, if you are one of the first respondents to complete a survey.

Survey Junkie Pulse

Survey Junkie Pulse is a browser extension you can install in order to receive exclusive surveys that are based on your browsing activity. You'll receive a notification of new surveys directly in your browser, as soon a survey becomes available. SJ Pulse is designed to connect you with surveys based on your browsing interests and does not collect personal information such as passwords, emails, credit card information, etc. Keep the extension enabled for 30 days on your desktop computer, and receive bonus points credited to your Survey Junkie account.

good place to make some cash. prompt payment. Check in often to maximize earnings, if you wait for invitations you will miss out.

This is an amazing LEGIT way to make money just for giving your opinions! A few surveys are a little lengthy but that's to be expected.. If you answer honestly (which you should be doing so anyways) and stay consistent, you can totally make bank! Full 5 star review from me!

Surveys = Cash

July 13, 2020 by Kenneth from United States

I have found Survey Junkie to be the fairest survey site. As of a few days ago, you can redeem your dollar amount when it has reached just $5.00. I have redeemed close to $300.00 in just about ten months. It runs a 500-point ($5.00) promotion every 5 or 6 weeks which is very easy to complete. I have completed all five of them so far for a total of $25.00. You are even awarded either 2 or 3-points when you choose a survey and for some reason, you are either not qualified or it has been filled up before you selected it. I have had some disputes and each of them has been settled in my favor in just one message. Since each point is worth one cent it's very easy to keep track of what you have earned and they have an excellent method of keeping your history.
