8 Survey Sites for Filipino who wants to Earn Extra Income Online 2020

The journey for you to mine gold online is not easy and it would take longer than you might expect but what if there is a really fast way to have your penny trickle.

I said just a penny or a dime or cents, call it whatever you want, but this can motivate you to start earning big.

Amy Lynn Andrews, my favorite blogger explained it this way, "If you’re a beginner, allow 6 months to make coffee money (a few dollars a month), 12 months to make a part-time income, and 24 months to make a full-time income... Starting a blog today and making a full-time income within a few months is unrealistic."

But what if you are like me who would like to prevent poverty from ever occurring and drown us of the never-ending bills? How are you to start earning right away so that you can supplement even a Php100 meal a day?

To make the matter worst, what if you don't have savings or you have exhausted all of your savings already.

As you can see, we are all experiencing financial setbacks due to COVID 19. Some of us have lost our jobs and we don't even know where we are heading from here?

For the last month, I searched and explore the web to find how we can earn in a dignified way. I have entered all the job searches, tried transcription, tried proofreading, and many more.

Nothing seemed to help. Most of them require time. Some like with the transcription jobs, they seemed to be looking for beginners but they have entry exams that are too difficult, suited for the masters who can do the task closed eyes.

I was only accepted in QA-world and failed to others. But even in this website, jobs are rare. I've checked at them several times but there's no job being offered. For certain, it's because of the pandemic.

But you know, when I received my first Php 250 from a Survey Site, I began to understand that there are truly ways to earn online. All I need to do is to tap on them, invest time, and then, start.

So for the next days after I've earned this very little amount, I've spent time researching the best survey sites that we, Filipinos, can earn online. That's in addition to researching other things about earning. Well, I'm not yet done! Below is the list.

This list is actually a total of 12 websites but I trimmed it down to eight based on my experience and if ever they can use Paypal to pay us in peso.

1. Rakuten Insights

This is a survey site located in our country, Philippines,  formerly called AIP Online Survey.

In this survey site, you just have to register and they will send you an email whenever there is a survey.

Registration is free and open to any resident in India (quite confusing here but it's okay) who is Sixteen (16) years of age or older.

After registering as a member and responding to their online surveys from your "My Page", you will be rewarded with EPoints.

I have looked for any referral code to offer you, however, I found out that this is already discontinued. You can read their announcement here.

Accumulated EPoints can later be redeemed for gift vouchers and/or cash. Currently, gift vouchers of various amounts are available for you to redeem EPoints. The minimum required for redemption is 2,500.

You can transfer your accumulated EPoints to your PayPal account. The minimum required is 1,000 EPoints. 

As of now I only have 305 points so I wasn't able to cash out yet. :-)

#2. SurveyTime

It is owned by, a global mobile ad-tech company.

By far is one of my favorite because I was able to receive a payment from them already. I started at a very small amount yet what's good with it is that I was able to prove that they are paying.

After signing up, you’ll answer a few questions to create your profile and then you will be offered surveys that fit your interests. Then, you can start taking surveys and earn $1 for each one you complete successfully. There are also several pre-qualifying questions, but usually, you will qualify.

If you couldn’t successfully complete a survey you will be offered other available surveys that may interest you, but you won’t get rewarded for the survey you weren’t able to complete.

Be careful and provide honest and detailed answers in your profile to improve your chances for the best matching opportunities in the future. Once you’ve done this, you can start taking surveys.

The length of the surveys varies, it could take 10 or even 15 minutes, and on rare occasions even longer, depending on the number of questions and your own personal pace.

There are a number of ways in which you can be notified about new surveys. They have options like Text, E-mail, and web notifications or you can check the Surveytime website to see which new surveys they have to offer.

No points are needed to redeem, just complete the survey and you will be paid. In every survey you completed, you will be paid right away and that will go directly to your Paypal. You will receive an email confirmation through email.

For the first payout, you will have to verify your phone number. And after that, you will cash out instantly each time you complete a survey. In my case, they verified my Paypal account by directly sending it a small amount.

Depending on your demographics is the number of opportunities that you get. Usually, more opportunities are offered in the United States.

To redeem their rewards you can either choose their gift cards or cash out through Paypal. I chose the latter. After choosing your reward, you’ll need to follow the instructions they will send you in a confirmation e-mail, that can vary depending on the reward you chose.

I have also discovered that they are offering affiliates to those who would want to promote their site. You can view more information here. You will receive $0.25 every time one of your referrals completes an online survey (online questionnaire).

#3. LifePoints Panel

It is a survey site created by Lightspeed. This platform is actually a combination of two older platforms, MySurvey and Lightspeed, if you are familiar with them. Hence, this is a legitimate platform.

Here is where I received my first Php 250 pesos.

It’s actually really simple. As a panelist, they will send you an email to inform you of any available survey. All you need to do is to answer questions and complete tasks that give companies feedback. As you do these things, you earn points. Those points can then be redeemed as gift cards to major brands, Paypal vouchers, or donations.

You’ll earn 10 LifePoints for registering and validating your email address and another 10 for answering a few questions about your household to match you to survey opportunities. Teens 14 and older can participate in LifePoints.

Your primary activity is to complete surveys but you can also take other activities such as mini-polls, product testing (where products are mailed to your address), and other types of data collection like diaries (where you record your activities).

There is no referral bonus but if you are using the app, just by turn on your location services and you’ll earn an extra 20% per task. I don't try this yet.

Here are the points you  need to redeem at LifePoints:
  • Donations = 205 points
  • Gift card = 550 points. 
  • PayPal = at least 1,200 points.
Whether you redeem for a gift card or PayPal credit, it’ll take up to 10 business days to receive it.
Note that the email address you used to register with LifePoints must match your PayPal email.

#4. Mobrog

MOBROG is a service provided by the market research company SPLENDID RESEARCH GmbH from Germany. B

Because of this international ownership, it is actually available for anyone living in more than 60 different countries including the Philippines.

You can sign up here. That's a referral that if you sign-up and successfully completed three surveys you will help me earn Php 25.00.

The same is true for you if you would want to refer a friend to this website.

I don't have much to tell you about my experience with this website as of now because I have no reviews yet maybe because of my demographics. Once I have, I will update you here.

But then again, this is legit and worth a try for Filipinos.

#5. Toluna

Toluna Influencers is a worldwide survey community that is owned and operated by market research powerhouse, Toluna Group.

You can read many reviews about this and you can watch some of them on YouTube. I started here way, way back before, maybe a year ago but unfortunately, I didn't earn yet because I stopped answering their surveys.

Now, I am back again on the site and have gathered a little 7,000 points as of this time. I will continue answering surveys there until I earn.

I don't know how long will it take but it's okay since I have many other alternatives while I'm waiting. If you are interested please sign in using this link. 

Much is there to say about this website so I think I have to dedicate another blog post for it.

#6. Paidperview

If there is a survey site that I would really like to promote aside from Surveytime  and LifePoints
Well, I am not earning from them yet, as of now I have accumulated $5.65 cents. The threshold required to qualify for cash-out is only $15 USD. You earn a consistent $0.03 for every survey you have completed. 

But even if I did not yet redeem any amount from them, I truly love how the way they conduct their surveys. It's very simple.

They pay cash for every completed market research survey. They will never screen you out once you've been invited into a survey.

They also cracked the code that takes "boring" out of the survey answering experience. And lastly, they respect your privacy and do not sell your personal identifiable information to anyone.

These are enough reasons for you to be part of this survey site. In my experience, you will have a survey almost daily. All you need to do is to visit their site regularly.

PaidViewpoint is the market research survey site operated by Ask Your Target Market. AYTM is revolutionizing the market research industry by making quality market research easily accessible and affordable to businesses large and small everywhere.

Suffice it to say that you have to try this site now so you will have the firsthand experience and start accumulating points. It's still something to look forward to for tomorrow. 

#8. ViewFruit

They are part of the Market Research Association, a huge international network of established and reputable market research companies.

As a service platform for members, Viewfruit-Philippines members are offered more good projects and additional service as a purpose. Participation, reward, share and gain. Members not only acquire rewards but also the joy of participation and speech.

It has launched a new service, such as industry microblog BBS and job searching, etc. which provide a new space for numbers of members of industry communication and learning from each other.

You can earn reward points by inviting your friends to complete the survey and you can get 10% extra points.

You can also earn an extra 100 Points by downloading Viewfruit APP or you can also earn points by participating in other activities on the webpage.

I don't try using the app for surveys, I prefer to use my laptop because I already have many apps running in my phone that eats up my space. 

A successfully completed survey will bring you anywhere between 100 and 5,000 points. Every 500 points will translate to $1.

To cash out your earnings, you will need to accrue 2,500 points or $5. You can cash out via PayPal, but you can also opt for Amazon or iTunes gift cards.

Survey sites are just the beginning so don't be discouraged that you have to start small and earn small.

What you need is to try to help yourself believe that you can earn. That will motivate you to keep going and searching.

The truth is, there is more sustainable income online but that would take time to build. Unless of course, you would like to work client based then you can go to sites like Fiverr, Upwork,, Appen, and a lot more.

But that's not what I planned to do for the next six months. I will maintain income from these surveys, I will still work (WFH) under my company, and I will work on my blogs to generate sustainable income for the next 24 months.

Along the way, I will create a blog post here for the update.

Let us meet here every Tuesday, guys. I'll be waiting. :-)
