2023 signifies a new year, and that means our list of the top survey sites of 2023 comes with it!

We’ve been selecting our top 5 survey sites for the year for officially a decade now (see below for links to prior year’s picks). Our selections are for people of all types; whether you’ve taken a survey before and want to know who the best providers are, have never taken one at all, or are just curious in general, our top picks list will help you out.

You may be wondering how we go about picking the top survey sites of 2023. Here is the criteria we have used for years, and which has served us well:

  • Overall reputation among SurveyPolice users (as based on user reviews)
  • Changes in sentiment expressed in user reviews over the past year
  • Rewards offered to survey takers as well as overall user experience
  • Customer service attentiveness

If you’ve never taken a survey before, the sites below are a good place to start. If you have any questions about how survey taking works, be sure to check out our FAQ.

Top Site #1: PaidViewpoint

paidviewpoint website
Even though we’ve selected PaidViewpoint to be in the top position many times in the past, choosing it as our top survey site of 2023 was something we just had to do. In some ways, PaidViewpoint is too good! There simply aren’t many sites that come close to what they offer and how they treat their members.

Why we like PaidViewpoint:

PaidViewpoint continues to outperform. It is transparent, fair, reliable and a continued favorite among survey takers. You can expect to complete online surveys for cash, which you can receive in the form of a PayPal payment. If you’re from a select country, you can also choose to get paid via e-gift card. There are no gimmicks, exaggerations, or sudden account deactivations like what you may experience with other sites. Their transparency is unparalleled – something both we and more importantly, their survey takers, appreciate.

What it’s like taking surveys for them:

Once you join PaidViewpoint (which is as simple as filling out a very basic registration form), you’ll see your account credited with the $1.00 joining bonus. Under your account balance, you’ll see the number of surveys available for you to take. Once you complete $15 worth of studies, you can cash out your earnings for your first PayPal payment. Rewards are issued within a speedy 72 hours of request.

  • PaidViewpoint surveys are short, to the point and easy to complete. You also won’t ever get disqualified from completing a survey (unlike most other survey sites).
  • Although you must earn $15 before you can cash out the first time, this decreases for members in good standing. Cash out at $10 for your second cash out, and then just $5 for each time after that.
  • Earn a small amount of money every day by completing daily ‘trait surveys’. These aren’t meant to be a substitute for full-fledged surveys, but they can help inch you closer to a payout.
  • For members who participate regularly, their ‘TraitScores’ will increase. Once a TraitScore of 9000 is achieved, you’ll see an increase in cash offered to complete studies. These users are also the first people invited to complete surveys.
  • Receive your rewards within 72 hours of request. PayPal payments are available in all countries, though users in the USA, UK, and Canada will also have e-gift card options available to them.

With almost 2000 x 5-star reviews for PaidViewpoint left on SurveyPolice, it continues to be a favorite among survey takers. Take their surveys on your computer, or if you’re an Android user, download their app to take surveys from your phone. With constant attentiveness to their users, their attention to detail, and care for their members makes them a breeze to take surveys with.

Rewards offered:

Cash paid via PayPal (issued in US dollars, regardless of your country of residence). Members residing in the USA, UK, and Canada will also have the option to receive their earnings in the form of an e-gift card.


PaidViewpoint is available in over 50 countries worldwide. You must be at least 13 years old (16 in the EU) in order to participate.

Top Site #2: Tellwut

tellwut website

Tellwut has also once again made our top survey site list this year. With almost 2 million members, its community continues to grow and thrive. Tellwut is currently in the testing phase of redesigning their website, including integrating new features. We’re very excited to see what they come up with!

Why we like Tellwut:

Feedback for Tellwut is consistently positive and it’s common to have users participate on the platform for years. People find their surveys interesting, their payouts are very fast, and their customer service continues to be strong. Although they offer ‘external surveys’, they conduct plenty of their own market research, and opportunities to earn on the platform is simple.

What it’s like taking surveys for them:

Tellwut offers its users multiple ways of earning points. This starts with the 250 point sign up bonus they offer to new members, the ability to take easy daily polls and surveys, posting your own surveys to the community, and opportunities to earn bonus points via fun contests. Engage with other members on the platform, or simply use it to take external surveys.

  • Users rave about the number of surveys always available and how they’re interesting and sometimes even fun!
  • Customer service is very responsive – if you experience an issue, they will generally get back to you within a day, and sometimes even hours.
  • Create your own surveys to poll the Tellwut community and earn additional points. Easy daily surveys make it simple to accumulate points every day.

Top Site #3: ACOP

American Consumer Opinion (ACOP) website

ACOP (American Consumer Opinion) takes the third position for the top survey site of 2023 – an increase from fifth, last year. They continue to provide strong customer support and as one of the longest running survey sites online (at an unbelievable 20 years!), they are a solid choice. Anyone around the world can participate in their surveys – an uncommon feature among survey panels.

Why we like ACOP:

Longevity is not something that’s easy to accomplish in the surveys space. Panels come and go, or merge with others – a standalone survey sites that makes it to the 20 year mark is rare. ACOP has accomplished this unbelievable feat by providing high quality surveys to their users, compensating them fairly, and issuing payments in a timely manner. Pair that with strong customer service, and you’ve both a solid survey site.

What it’s like taking surveys for them:

ACOP offers traditional online surveys, focus group opportunities, as well as unique options to provide feedback on advertisements. Product tests, which involve testing a product sent to your home, are also offered. Once you’ve earned just $10 in your account, you can request a PayPal payment, a Hyperwallet payment, or you can donate to charity.

  • ACOP’s customer service is very responsive. As a smaller (though very established) survey panel, their attentiveness to inquiries is not something you’ll find with the major market research companies.
  • Cashing out is simple; once you’ve reached a $10 balance, request a payment and receive it within one to two weeks.
  • Receive monthly chances to win gift cards by participating in survey screeners.
  • Anyone from around the world can join ACOP. Although invitations to participate in studies is offered more frequently to those living in developed nations, membership is open to everybody.
  • Receive unique opportunities to participate in focus groups, test new products, and evaluate advertising campaigns and packaging designs.
  • Paid surveys take (on average) a short, 10 minutes to complete.

Rewards offered:

Receive cash payments made via PayPal and Hyperwallet. Alternatively, you can use your points towards sweepstakes entries for prizes, or donate them to charity.


Everyone 14+ around the world is welcome to join the panel.

Top Site #4: Branded Surveys

branded surveys website
Branded Surveys maintains its fourth position this year in our top survey sites list. It remains a very popular choice among survey takers, with its huge survey inventory and unusually low $5 minimum cash out. Its smart Survey Matching Engine ensures you are connected with the most relevant surveys, so that attaining the cash out minimum is easy.

Why we like Branded Surveys:

Branded Surveys remains one of the easiest places to earn a cash out from. New members receive 100 points upon signing up (equivalent to $1.00), making the $5.00 payment threshold easy to reach. There is never a shortage of surveys to choose from, and by taking daily polls for points and receiving loyalty point bonuses, racking up a balance quickly is not difficult. Branded also offers one of the most extensive prize catalogs of any survey site.

What it’s like taking surveys for them:

With over $33 million in payments to their members, Branded offers a ton of surveys, and ways to earn money online using the platform.

  • Survey takers rave about Branded’s quick rewards processing times; although their turnaround is technically 48 hours, many users report receiving their rewards instantly after requesting them.
  • Branded has one of the highest survey inventories of any site. Especially if you keep your profile up to date, there will never be a shortage of paid surveys available for you to complete.
  • The more points you earn on the platform, the more bonuses you’ll receive. Complete 12 or more surveys in a week and earn a bonus anywhere from 5%-15%.
  • Branded Survey’s user interface is simple and easy to understand. Finding surveys, daily polls and other earning opportunities on the website is very straightforward.
  • Choose from a ton of different rewards options including cash (in the form of a PayPal payment or bank transfer), or choose an e-gift card to just about any retailer you can think of.

Top Site #5: FreeCash

freecash website
A new addition to this year’s top survey sites list is Freecash – a GPT site that has skyrocketed in popularity in the past year. While not strictly a survey site (GPT stands for get-paid-to), it offers a plethora of earning opportunities for people around the world. They regularly hold fun contests and sweepstakes where users have monthly, weekly and sometimes even daily opportunities to win prizes. Their engagement with their community is very strong, giving them a unique edge.

Why we like Freecash:

It’s hard to beat Freecash’s minuscule payment threshold and lightning-fast payments. Request a payment with as little $0.50 in your account, and receive your rewards within 5-10 minutes of request (with the exception of PayPal rewards). Participate in fun contests, including opening ‘prize cases’ where you can instantly win up to $250 just for joining the website. Freecash is available to everyone around the world, giving people in countries where it’s difficult to make money online, the opportunity to do so.

What it’s like taking surveys for them:

On the Freecash homepage, you can view how long it takes the average participant to earn their first cash out. This typically ranges between 10-15 minutes. You can also see what the average cash out was (usually $10-$20), and the number of total rewards paid.

  • Freecash offers one of the lowest cash out levels of any program, at just $0.50. Although there are video game skins available for download at just $0.10, more attractive rewards are offered at $0.50+.
  • There are multiple ways of earning cash on the platform; completing surveys is the easiest way, although participating in offers in another effective method.
  • Save time by viewing the popularity of survey providers and offer providers in your country; if a provider is rated highly for your country, earning points with that particular provider will be easier.
  • Choose from a variety of unique reward options. Freecash offers PayPal payments, e-gift cards, crypto payments (bitcoin, Ethereum, Dodgecoin and more), and video skin downloads.
  • Look for ‘code drops’ posted on social media, where you can earn bonuses and free points. Participate in fun contests and sweepstakes, which are posted to social almost daily.

Rewards offered:

Freecash offers both standard and unique rewards. Choose from a PayPal payment or e-gift card to Amazon, DoorDash, Apple, etc. Alternatively, get paid in crypto including bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin and more, or choose a video game skin.

Honorable Mention: PrizeRebel

prizerebel website
PrizeRebel remains a solid choice if you’re looking for a website with plenty of earning opportunities, a good selection of rewards, and quick payment processing times. Most users have positive things to say about PrizeRebel, as they’ve been a stalwart in the GPT space for over 15 years. They have issued millions in dollars in rewards to their members and they offer a good user experience. Choose from a wide variety of ways to earn on the site: completing surveys, filling in offers, watching online videos, completing micro tasks, referring friends, and more. Get paid when your account reaches just $5 (or $2 if you choose an Amazon gift card) and receive a PayPal payment or e-gift card to your favorite retailer.


PrizeRebel is available to users around the world.

What Changed from Last Year’s Rankings

There are a few notable differences from 2022’s list of top survey sites to this year’s. The biggest change is adding Freecash to the list while giving PrizeRebel an honorable mention, instead of a spot in the top 5.

Based on the rave reviews left for Freecash and their strong engagement with their community via contests and communication on social media, we felt the need to include them in this year’s list. They are keen on growing their international community and are innovative in terms of the rewards they offer (crypto, video game skins, in addition to gift cards and PayPal). They award anywhere from $40,000 to $60,000 in payments to their users every day, making them a very active community where users have good earning potential.

We gave PrizeRebel an honorable mention this year, as although they continue to be a strong GPT site, not much has changed in the past year. Although the site remains popular and reviews are generally positive, there hasn’t been much in terms of introducing new earning opportunities, rewards, or adding new features to the website. Their community of 12 million users keeps them in a favorable position however, and we hope to see some innovation from them in 2023.
