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 $10 worth of survey earnings (1,000 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 redeem your points for e-gift cards, or a bank transfer payment. e-gift cards are available in denominations of $10, $15, $20, $25 and $50. Bank transfers are handled by a third-party partner and take 3-4 business days to complete.

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.

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.

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.

Not so great

May 23, 2020 by Larry from Canada

I was with survey junkie and they were great when with them and the payout was great. I was with them for about a year or a bit more. Then all of a sudden they closed my account saying I did something wrong which I didn't do anything wrong. I only had one account and answered the survey honestly as I have always done. I have tried to contact them before to find out what went wrong to maybe fix the issue and they didn't even want to discuss what went wrong and turned their back on me. I have heard many many people say it happened to them as well. With the same response. I would totally understand if I was going against their policy and knew about it. But I wasn't doing anything against it. I have even stated before how great they were and told people to sign up. I was all for them and wanted to share how great they were and I have pushed for people to try them out. But then they just kick you out and throw you to the side like a piece of trash. If it wasn't for them just throwing me away like trash I would have given them 5-stars all day long. To this day I would still give them a second chance to make things right again if they wanted to make things right with someone who did the surveys honestly and daily.

Complete a survey and then given 0 points or 2 points. Contact customer service and they say it's not them it's the survey so no points for you.
Constantly getting garbage surveys which makes it frustrating when you spend 25 minutes for 2 cents---literally---

Used to be good

May 8, 2020 by Alexander from United States

I used to love this place. Great surveys, easy to use, and always paid out when I cashed out in a timely manner. The past few weeks I’ve noticed that I get halfway through a survey and I get the I didn’t qualify because the survey filled up. Today was the tipping point of frustration. 10 surveys tried with 6 screening me out halfway through the surveys (wasted almost 1 1/2 hours for nothing. It gets better. The last 3, which included a 20, 25, and 35 minute survey all screened me out after completing the survey. I bet they are happy though. They get paid while the survey taker gets screwed over. Emails to customer service got me nowhere.

The good gone bad

Survey Junkie used to be one of my go to sites but not anymore. They serve up "Junkie" surveys now.

No New Surveys in 2 months

April 11, 2020 by Dave from United States

I used this site for a couple of weeks (Feb to the first of March) and got lots of surveys but no new ones since March 8th. Stay away.
