I think it’s pretty obvious that I love rewards sites. I love using them, and I love promoting them. And why not? They’re great ways to earn money from the comfort of your own sofa. All you need to start making money is a mobile device, a stable internet connection, and a little bit of time and effort to spare.
While there are a lot of decent rewards sites out there, a few are notably for giving instant payouts via PayPal. Processing times vary between rewards sites. A few will process your rewards within a couple of days, while some could take up to a week. And then there are the ones that give you your earnings instantly. For this blog post, I’ll be giving you a list of rewards sites that pay via PayPal instantly. If you’re the type who needs his or her payouts fast, this is the list for you!
But First, an Important Reminder
As I mentioned a while ago, using a rewards site is an awesome way to make money. It’s super-easy to use, and you (usually) get paid with minimal hassle. With that said, you won’t get rich answering surveys or completing offers. It’s just not possible. But that’s okay. Rewards sites – at least the ones that are totally legit – aren’t supposed to make you rich. At best they’re good for supplementing your monthly income. I’ve relied on my rewards site earnings for things like groceries and minor household maintenance and repairs.
And that’s why it’s important to use rewards sites that pay quickly. Since you won’t be making vacation in Bahamas-level money, you might as well get paid fast, right?
Finally, you’ll know a rewards site is a scammy one if it makes promises that are too good to be true. Most of these sketchy sites will claim that you can get rich answering surveys and watching videos… but when it’s time to request a payout, they usually give you the runaround or request a processing “fee” just for you to get the money that you earned. I hate those kinds of websites with a passion. And that’s why I’ll be giving you this list of rewards sites you can try. Not only are they totally safe and legit, but they also pay really fast.
Without further ado, here’s my list of legit rewards sites that pay instantly!
Aside from fast payment processing, PaidViewPoint is notable for a few other reasons. First, they don’t screen you out when you’re in the middle of answering surveys. Other rewards sites will disqualify you in the middle of a survey if it decides that you don’t fit the appropriate demographic for the survey. One PaidViewPoint, once you start answering a survey, you will be able to complete (and earn!) from it. And that’s a pretty big improvement over the operations of other rewards sites. It really sucks to have put a certain amount of time into a survey only to get cut out at some point. Next, the site is part of a large network of market research companies that have handled large clients such as Adobe, Samsung, NBC, Weiman, Intuit, Ogilvy, and Nutrisystem.
Whenever you complete a survey, you get paid in cash – simple as that. No points, no converting, no hassle. When you’ve accumulated a minimum of $15 in earnings, you can request a payout. You can request cash earnings (which is sent via PayPal) or Amazon or Walmart gift cards.
1Q is a site I’ve only recently started using. But so far, I really like this site. Most of the surveys come in multiple-choice format, which is ideal for anyone who doesn’t like putting in too much effort to the surveys they’re answering. A slight downside to this site is that they give out surveys rarely – at most, you can expect only a couple of surveys each month.
But one good thing about the site is that it offers incentives whenever you quickly answer a survey after it gets posted. If you answer a survey within 5 minutes of it getting posted, you get a special bonus. Take note, though, that it can be tough to spot early postings. So keep your email inbox open and head over to the 1Q site as soon as you get a notification of an available survey.
When you complete answering a survey, you will get your earnings via PayPal within a few minutes of you completing it. Pretty sweet, right?
FeaturePoints is a rewards site that pays you for visiting other websites. But don’t worry, all the sites that are listed are totally legit, and visiting them is also optional. Sometimes, a task will require you to download and test an app before you get your earnings.
You can request your earnings once you’ve accumulated at least $3, which is an easy amount to hit. They’ve got lots of payout options, but my favorite is PayPal, since it only takes a few minutes for me to get my cash!
I’m also a pretty avid “couponer.” A couponer is basically someone who takes using coupons to get bargains to the next level. Whereas before, getting coupons meant scouring newspapers and cutting print coupons, there are now sites that compile digital coupons for you to use. Among these sites, Ibotta is one of my favorites.
Unlike the other sites listed here, Ibotta is a “cashback” site. The site posts various bargains for you (similar to what couponing sites do) and whenever you purchase the listed goods, you get part of the money you paid for back (hence the term “cashback). This is a great site to use, because in addition to getting some of your money back, you’re also getting a bunch of awesome bargains. (Which are optional, of course – no one is forcing you to spend your money on particular offers.)
You can request a payout once you’ve earned at least $20. That amount is a bit on the high side, so I recommend you use Ibotta while shopping as often as possible. But the upside to the site is that they pay via PayPal within minutes! So in theory you could shop, get your money back, then use that money to keep shopping!
