I posted about UpVoice last fall (see my original post here), but there have been some changes to the program that I had to share! Now you can refer friends and family and earn more gift cards!
Do you spend time on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Linkedin, and Amazon? If you do, consider joining UpVoice! UpVoice is BrandTotal’s user panel. They use the data that they collect from the UpVoice panel to build special insights for brands on their advertising activities and the ad campaigns of their competitors.
I’ve been a member since August 2019, and I’ve earned over $100!
All you have to do is:
- Click on the extension’s icon and go to the new “Referral” tab on the dashboard.
- Copy your unique referral link.
- Share it with your people through text messages, email, social media platforms, or any other way.
That’s it! Earn $5 (300 tokens) for every referral who fills out the qualification form on the website, installs the Chrome extension, and gains their first 100 tokens. You earn rewards for up to 20 successful referrals.
To get started, click here.
This post contains my referral link- if you click on it an install, I may earn a referral bonus.
I’ve written about doing surveys online before, and it’s definitely one of the ways that I make money. For my full list of side hustles, check out this post.
Here are a couple survey companies that are looking for new members!
Create a profile and take surveys to earn cash or gift card rewards with Branded Surveys. They pay you with cash or gift card rewards to complete market research studies. Refer your friends to maximize your rewards (woo hoo).
Pro Tip: Cashouts are possible upon receiving 1,000 points ($10). You’ll also receive these notifications after each survey you take along with helpful tips and hints to improve performance.
My absolute favorite survey company! Pinecone Research pays $3 per survey. Redeem via paypal or save your points to cash out for other gift cards or shop their catalog.
They send you an email notification when you have a survey available. Complete the survey and earn points to be redeemed for either cash or prizes. Occasionally, they will send you a product to test, too.
Oh, and Vindale Research is a fun one too! Get paid to review products with Vindale Research in addition to surveys!
When you sign up to do surveys online, I recommend that you do the following:
- Have an email address solely for doing surveys. Check it a few times a week to make sure that you aren’t missing any opportunities.
- If you don’t have a Paypal Account, sign up for one. They are free and most companies that pay “cash” use Paypal.
- Keep track of your earnings- I have a Google Sheet that I update any time I receive a pay out.
- Have Fun!

Do you spend time on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Linkedin, and Amazon? If you do, consider joining UpVoice! UpVoice is BrandTotal’s user panel. We use the data that we collect from the UpVoice panel to build special insights for brands on their advertising activities and the ad campaigns of their competitors.
How does it work?
As you visit Facebook, YouTube, Amazon, or any other of the participating sites on your desktop computer, they anonymously collect the ads that you see and give you daily tokens that can later be redeemed for Amazon Gift Cards. Once you visit one of the participating sites, it may take a few minutes for your token balance to be updated.
They are a market research firm and therefore the data we collect is only used for providing brand marketers with advertising campaign insights.
If you’re qualified to become an UpVoice panelist, you will get a link to install the UpVoice Chrome extension. The UpVoice Chrome extension can only work on a Chrome browser (or other Chromium-based browsers) on your computer (and not your mobile device).
