Best Legitimate Free Paid Survey and PTC Sites

Your source for survey & PTC sites that pay
Last updated February 14, 2017

Welcome to my Free Paid Online Survey and PTC/GPT site.  Are there survey & PTC/GPT sites that actually pay you and are worth your time?  Do they really work?  I have personally been doing free paid surveys and PTCs for a while now and have done a lot of research to see which sites were the best and were legitimate!   l never pay to take surveys and neither should you!   There are many really good, legitimate free paid survey sites and Paid-To-Click sites that really do pay!  I regularly have money going into my Paypal account, or I'm getting gift cards in the mail.  Your time really does pay off.  
Below is a list of all the best survey sites, Paid-To-Click & Get Paid To sites that I personally use.  The list is in no particular order.  You are not going to get rich taking surveys or doing PTCs, but you will have some nice extra income.  Before you get started, here are a few helpful tips to getting more surveys: 

1)  Once you have signed up for a new survey company, it is important to log into your new account and check for any profile surveys they may offer.   The more of the profilers you do, the better your chances are of receiving relevant surveys. Some companies even pay your for doing the profile surveys. 
If you don't fill these out - you won't get hardly any surveys at all. These help them to be able to know more about you so that they can send you relevant surveys. For example, lets say a company is needing females who are 40 who live in the NE US and have children aged 10-12. If you haven't filled out your profilers, they aren't going to send you that survey (even if you fit that demographic). They don't know if you fit what they need - so they don't send it to you. If you fill out those profilers, you will be sent more surveys.

2)  S
ign into your accounts periodically. I have noticed that at times when I randomly lo g into my survey accounts that my surveys see a rise. Not for all sites, but there have been some that I hadn't received a survey for quite some time. I logged in to look at my balance a couple days in a row and all of a sudden I started getting numerous surveys from them. Maybe a coincidence, maybe not. It may have shown that I was still interested in their company.

3)  The more companies you sign up with, the more surveys you get, the more money you make!
