Teen Paid Survey Panels
Whilst most paid survey panels require you to be over 18, some panels
accept younger members and others offer youth panels. Below are some of the most active.
Choose from US panels, UK panels
and International panels
Before joining any of the programs, consider getting yourself a separate
e-mail address. Many companies offer free services, so you don't need to rely on
hotmail with their junk mail problems. My own personal recommendation is
GMX (Global Mail Exchange),
used by more than 11 million Internet users, which offers 5 GB e-mail storage and
attachments up to 50MB and mailboxes which are protected from spam with seven anti-spam
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.
UK Teen Panels
is slightly different from other survey sites I've come across in that you don't have
to rely on getting invitations for completing surveys, but have several other ways
of earning points or getting free items.
- Registration earns you 1,500 points
- Quick votes, each time you take part earns you 15 points (there are always loads of these on the site so visit regularly. They take a matter of seconds to complete.)
- Product testing, registering for each trial earns you 75 points even if you're not selected to take part
- Surveys earn you between 3,000 and 30,000 points
- Referring a friend, for each person who joins Test&Vote because of you, you will earn 500 points
- Subject panels - complete these to get 500 points per subject.
You can either exchange your points for gift vouchers or use them to
buy tickets in the monthly lottery.
