Eureka Surveys Review: A Simple Survey App

Some of the links may be from a sponsor. Advertising Disclosure

Eureka Surveys is one I have mentioned before, such as in my 20+ apps that pay you via PayPal and the many survey sites that don’t disqualify you.

If you’re looking for a legitimate survey app that pays you instantly and guarantees your earnings, this is one you may want to consider.  It’s very highly rated with more than 200,000+ reviews and has hundreds of thousands of downloads.  It’s one of the better options out there.

Now, you won’t make a ton of money with any survey app, so keep that in mind.  However, if you want to earn $1, $5 or $10 a day, then it’s entirely possible.  It just depends on how often you log in as well as your demographics.

In today’s review, I will talk about the Eureka Surveys app.  I will show you how it works, what you can make as well as what I think about it.  As in all of my reviews, I’m always 100% honest, only recommending what I feel is worth your time.

What is Eureka Surveys?

Eureka Survey is said to pay out millions of dollars since starting out.  If you have ever visited Reddit or watched legitimate YouTubers (very few of them), they often recommend this app and it’s for a myriad of reasons.

Like many survey apps, it’s your job to answer simple survey questions, which range from anything about a new product to questions about your personal life.  It’s as easy as answering questions and then getting rewarded once you’re finished.

Eureka Surveys is operated by a company called Social Loop, which is a digital marketing agency based in Harrogate, England and was founded in 2020.  It’s a very small company with fewer than 10 people; however, don’t let that scare you away as they are 100% legitimate.

Signing Up

To start using the app, you can only do so via the Google Play or iTunes Store.  There’s no desktop version at the moment, so you will have to answer all of your questions on your phone.

To get started, it’s extremely simple, as all you have to do is provide your email address, gender, date of birth as well as your zip code.

The entire process takes one minute at most and you can get started immediately.

If you want to join, you have to be at least 18+ years old and live in the U.S. or Canada.

Your Profile

After you join, you can earn $1 for your first survey.  This is your typical demographic survey that most research companies ask you to fill out whenever you join.  They do this because they want to know more about you so that they can send you targeted surveys.   These questions will relate to your demographics, such as your age, gender, employment status, etc.

This isn’t long at all and will take you a few minutes at most.  Trust me, in comparison to most survey apps, this is much easier than most.

Immediately after, you should see your account credited $1.

While it’s optional to do this, it’s 100% recommended as the company says you can get four to five time survey invites if you do so.  If you’re serious about making money on this app, I highly recommending do it as it only takes a few minutes to do so.

Aside from filling out your profile, the company will also send you bonus money if you confirm your phone number as well as turn on your location permissions.

Surveys Dashboard

Once you sign up, you can start seeing surveys almost immediately.  This is what your dashboard is going to look like:

As you can see, it’s fairly straight forward.  You will simply see a list of surveys as well as how long it will take you and what it will pay you.

For example, one survey is four minutes and pays $0.22 and another is six minutes for $0.17.  These surveys will refresh throughout the day.

The cool thing about Eureka is that they pay you $0.02 for every survey you don’t qualify for.

How many surveys will I see?

Depending on your demographics, you should see surveys pop up throughout the day.  When I was doing this review, I was checking the dashboard and I would always see at least 10+ invites.  However, this can vary, but let it be known that there are a lot of invites on the platform.

How much do they pay?

The surveys don’t pay much on average.  Expect to make about $0.10 to $1 per survey and remember that you won’t qualify for all of them.


When it’s time to cash out, you need at least $10 to do so, but after you first cash out, it then drops to $5.

The app has a wide variety of rewards, including the most popular options, such as Visa, PayPal, Amazon, Walmart, Target and bank transfers.  They offer a wide variety of retailers and restaurants as well.  They have more than 70+ rewards

The great thing is that all rewards are almost instant.

NOTE:  Once you cash out, they will send you a feedback survey that pays you $2 immediately.  That means you only need to earn $3 to cash out again.

The Pros:

  • more than 70+ rewards, including PayPal
  • instant cashouts
  • simple to use app
  • every time you cash out, you can earn $2~ after a simple survey

The Cons:

  • lots of disqualifications (more than average)
  • lot of low-paying surveys
  • frequent app problems (freezing, etc)

Final Thoughts

7/10Eureka Surveys is legit.  They pay out, they have a ton of surveys and it’s very easy to use.  However, I did see a lot of disqualifications and many surveys didn’t pay all that much.  I’m talking $0.17 for 10 minutes.  You may get frustrated using it.

Generally, as long as you bypass short lower paying surveys and focus on those that make sense, I think you can make a few dollars a day and not much more.  Don’t expect to make much but this is said about survey app.

In the end, Eureka Surveys isn’t bad and isn’t fantastic.  If you use it, you will get paid.  Just don’t expect all that much.
