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.

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.

Site works

March 30, 2020 by Cheryl from United States

Paid in timely manner with enough surveys to get you to payout quickly.

Great site.

March 15, 2020 by Daniel from United States

This is a great survey site. Takes some patience and time. But they keep me busy.

If you're bored and have nothing else better to do

You can make more money looking for pennies on the street. 95% screen out rate total waste of time unless you're a little kid who wants to play.

worst survey website on the net

February 27, 2020 by Willard from United States

It was good for about a year there were plenty of opportunities to earn. But all of a sudden the accused me of cheating and would not tell me what I did wrong. I assume that if they did they were afraid I'd tell others and watch out for their traps I assume. I never have had any other survey company accuse me of cheating. And many of them watch for cheaters very closely. I belong to 10 other sites and most for over 10 years no problems.
So if you decide to join expect them to dump you some time. WHEN I was dumped they didn't pay but I got their phone number and bitched till they paid me what they owed. Now I can log in but never get to fill out a single survey go figure.

Was good for awhile

February 15, 2020 by Tammie from United States

I enjoyed the surveys, which is saying a lot. Everything went along okay until I started being dumped out on what was obviously the last page of the survey. This happened three or four times before I asked why. Suddenly I was locked out and they can't confirm my identity online... Huh? They need to send me a post card, what is my address? Uh, I sent a screen shot of my profile to them. Long and short of it, I am locked out. And in a day or two, not going back.
You stand warned.
