Surveys on the Go (SOTG) is a mobile app where you can take surveys on a variety of interesting topics such as: entertainment, news, sports, technology and politics. The surveys are fun and informative in nature with the bonus of paying you in return for filling them out.

Get the App!

Get surveys right on your mobile device for participation on the go! Available on iOS and Android.

Different Survey Types

As a member, you may be asked to watch and rate TV shows or movies, evaluate products or shopping experiences, and take part in other interesting market research activities.

If permitted on your device, Survey on the Go may collect and use your precise location information obtained by the mobile app, to provide you with geographically focused survey opportunities.

Convenient & Easy


The SOTG app focuses on making the survey taking experience as convenient as possible. Making extra cash can be part of your everyday routine with no hassle involved. To get started, download the "Surveys on the Go" app on either Google Play or The App Store.

$0.50 for Each Demographic Survey

When you first become a member of SOTG, don't forget to complete all the demographic surveys that are available. These surveys will help match you with interesting surveys tailored to your interests, and you'll get paid $0.50 for each one you fill out! Make sure to also enable your location services for the app to receive local surveys in your targeted area.

Survey Details

With SOTG you can expect to receive 1 or 2 new survey invitations weekly. You will usually be notified by an alert when a new survey arrives! On average, each survey pays $1.00 to complete, but will only take a few minutes of your time. Once you finish the survey, it may take 3-5 business days for the reward to show up in your account because of the pending process.

Cash Out at $10.00!

Once your account reaches only $10, you can cash-out via PayPal! Surveys On The Go uses PayPal to handle the payout for two reasons: First, cutting checks is a lot of work; and second, this protects you, since it lets you keep all your most valuable information (like your physical address and bank info) completely private. The best part - Survey On The Go pays all the PayPal fees!

Make sure that you sign up for Surveys On The Go with the same email you use for PayPal to ensure simple cash transfers. Allow for 3-5 days upon redemption request to receive your funds.

Privacy of Info

SOTG takes your privacy very seriously - they will never sell or transfer your personal information. Survey answers are protected and will always be viewed in aggregate form, to avoid exposing your personal identity.

Eligibility: United States residents, 16+

App doesn’t work right

April 29, 2018 by Rosalie from United States

I have never really been able to get the location based surveys to work properly, even after going through many steps to make sure my location is shared on my device & the app is always updated. I don’t get an alert when I’m in the area, usually much later that day- meaning that I have to GO BACK to where I was to compete it. (ALL notifications are ON for this app, including sounds).
I lost out on $60 worth of surveys recently, 2 surveys in the same shopping center. After going back and forth with “customer service”, I’m now told they are no longer available in my area.! Ok, so why are they still in my list of surveys? If you don’t need anyone else..get rid of it.
$60 is a lot of money to me... I say proceed at your own risk and prepare to waste some time/gas/effort for nothing should you want to peruse to higher paying ones.
It’s worked for me in the past- over a year ago. I have the same phone, nothing’s changed on MY side.
I’m trying to get them to pay me out so that I can delete the damn app.

Wasted time

When I almost reached the payout amount they stopped sending me surveys. It has been over 4 mths since I got one. Before that I was getting them regularly. Not big ones but enough small ones to build up my balance to over 9 dollars. Payout is 10.

takes forever

April 16, 2018 by Kara from United States

never get surveys, took me since dec and i have 6.50. may get a survey once every 2 months, they were more frequent when i first started, how does a site not have surveys, gonna literally take me a year to get 10 bucks when you're getting 1 survey every 2 months.

Dunno yet, but not going very quickly

December 11, 2016 by Adam from United States

I can't comment on whether they actually pay, as I haven't had the opportunity to find out yet one way or the other. I can comment on the fact that it's been several months, and I currently have $6.75 waiting (you need $10 to cash out), most of which came from the "About Me" surveys they send you at the beginning, so that level of growth isn't even sustainable.

I was really hoping for a good "waiting in line" sort of survey app, but this is not that: I hardly ever get sent anything, and most of what I have gotten have been sporadic requests to get paid back (plus a couple dollars) if I go spend my own money to see some stupid movie in the theater. I might possibly get more surveys if I walked around with my 3g and GPS on all day, but no thanks - I want surveys on my own schedule, not theirs, and I certainly don't want to run down my phone's battery twice as fast. So, I figure *eventually* I'll make it to 10 bucks, then I'll uninstall this app; meanwhile, it's not actually hurting anything, just isn't doing much.

edit: I did eventually make it to 10 bucks, which took forever. They did pay, so there's that. Still recommend Quick Thoughts over this one if you want a mobile app, though. (Granted, there's nothing stopping you from running both, just, Quick Thoughts actually sends you surveys. :p)

Easy Peasy

You won't constantly get surveys everyday. There are a lot of 10 cent ones but you will get some higher paid ones sporadically. Need $10.00 to cash out. If you want something with a minimal time investment and short surveys, this one is for you.
