Get Paid to Complete Surveys Online in Australia and New Zealand
No longer restricted to U.S. residents;
now you can get paid to complete surveys online in Australia and New Zealand
and also undertake other market research work. Free paid survey companies only - no fees will ever be required.
Before joining any of the programs, consider getting yourself a separate
e-mail address. Many companies offer free services. My own personal recommendation is gmail but there are loads to choose from.
I'd also recommend you download a copy of Roboform. This free software can be used for auto-filling registration forms
greatly simplifying the application process for the survey companies you'll be joining. In addition it can also remember all
the passwords for each of the sites you join. Find out more from Roboform.

just add your e-mail address in the box. Your address will not be used for any other purposes.

- Surveys earn you between 3,000 and 30,000 points
