Looking for legitimate survey sites I ran accross the good ones and bad ones, more bad in fact. You can tell a non legitimate paid survey site when you start reading the long pages that want to hurry you to subscribe for a fee. You should never pay for doing a work.
There are certainly legitimate survey sites that pay you cash or reward you in points to complete surveys. Subscription to these sites is for free and for most of them you could login and start filling surveys and making money immediately after registration.
The pay on surveys is few dollars. In order to make good extra cash you need to subscribe to many survey sites. Some sites don't have more than few surveys a day. You may not be able to grow your balance by subscribing to couple sites. You need more.
There are few sites that I like the most and have been using for a while. I've been getting good payments through them. In fact, the first day I subscribed to these sites I was able to make $42.
Below is list of honest sites that will pay you cash for your services and require no credit card information or fees to subscribe:
American Consumer Opinion! One of the oldest and most trusted paid survey sites. They pay after every survey that you complete. Their compensation varies between $4 and $25 depending on the length and complexity of the survey. I was able to get two surveys within a week for $5 and $7. They send a check after each survey is completed.
Vindale Research - This website pays you to try out new products, services, and websites. You can make $5 to $75 per survey, and you even get to keep the products you review! The surveys are really easy, and the membership is free.
Survey Savvy - This website provides good number of surveys and pays good amount of money.
CashCrate - This website provides you with offers to complete and try. Many surveys cost you nothing to participate. You can redeem your money once it reaches $20. The good thing that I like about this site is that you can filter surveys for those that require credit card and those that don't. Also you can sort by cost and payout columns. It's very friendly and you will be able to narrow down the surveys you're looking for very easily.
