Are your friends and family tired of hearing your opinions on everything under the sun?
It would be nice to have an outlet for your thoughts on today’s most important topics — like TikTok, internet privacy and the hottest of topics: politics. (Seriously, Uncle Mike, can we ever have a peaceful family dinner?)
A website called YouGov America will do more than just listen to your opinions — it will pay you for sharing them.
That’s way better than the satisfaction of winning a comments-section war.
Make Your Voice Heard on Yahoo! News and HuffPost (and Get Paid)
YouGov America is a survey site that collects opinions from millions of people to share with major news outlets and companies.
For instance, Yahoo! News recently published an article featuring results from a YouGov America survey revealing only 42% of Americans plan to get vaccinated against the coronavirus when the vaccine becomes available.
When you take a quick survey (some are less than three minutes), you’ll earn points you can exchange for cash or gift cards.
To get started, you’ll answer some questions about your household and beliefs. Then you’ll launch into taking surveys on everything from celebrities to brands to politics. (Or if it’s about Kanye West, it could be all three!)
For all you veteran survey-takers, you know you can waste a bunch of time “prequalifying” for these things — answering questions for 15 minutes just to be told you don’t qualify. But we like YouGov America because it always finds you point-earning surveys, even if it’s already maxed out on respondents.
Each survey you take gets you closer to cold-hard cash or gift cards to places like Visa, Walmart or Amazon. Even better: Penny Hoarder readers will get a 3,000-point boost when they complete their first two surveys.
It takes just a few minutes to sign up, and you’ll get your first survey (and points!) immediately.
Now you can make it rain while voicing your opinions on climate change!
