Gigs That Pay You To Work From Home

I used to fill out surveys and earn gift cards when I was between jobs. I worked for the two companies below. The gift cards I earned really helped my grocery bill, coffee bill, and teacher gift cards. 

Ipsos i-Say is a market research firm in 87 countries. They pay you in gift cards to take surveys from home. The surveys take anywhere from five to thirty minutes to complete, and are about everything from consumer shopping to politics. You can fill out the surveys online anytime, and are perfect ways to earn gift cards to popular retailers and restaurants like Target, Walmart, Petco, and Home Depot.

Harris Poll Online is an online survey company that tracks consumer shopping behavior, and conducts political polls. You can earn gift cards by sharing your buying habits with them by filling out brief surveys. Earn gift cards to Starbucks and Amazon and fill out surveys at your own convenience.
