Paid Surveys That Pay by Check

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

Most surveys pay by gift cards or cash, and while this is preferred by most, some of you may want to get paid via check in the mail.

The great thing is that there are a few companies that pay via check.  And, yes, they are 100% legitimate, I can promise you that.  However, as time goes on, I’m going to expect this list to dwindle as receiving a physical check is an archaic method.

In today’s guide, I want to talk about paid survey companies that pay by check.  You won’t get rich with these companies, but you can make a few dollars here and there.  Expect to buy a dinner or two.  As long as you know these surveys won’t pay your bills, it can that much more enjoyable.

With that being said, let’s jump and check out the online surveys that pay by check.

Survey Sites That Pay by Check

NOTE:  I had to delete a lot from this list as policies have changed.  I will continue to update this as time goes on.

Survey Savvy

Survey Savvy offers a few options in which you can earn money:  either via surveys or you can download a device and earn up to $5 per device, per month, just for having it running.

The great thing about Survey Savvy is that you only need $1 to cash out and they seem to always have survey invites readily available.

Open worldwide, it’s free to sign up and they do pay out via a physical check still if that’s what you’re looking for.


FusionCash is one that I have enjoyed working with in the past.  They have a lot of surveys available, many of which pay $0.50 to $5+.  It’s fairly easy to build your balance here.

While the company focuses mainly on surveys, they do offer opportunities as well, but I have found the surveys to be your best option most of the time.

The great thing is that they still pay out via physical checks, but you need at least $25 in your account to cash out.  Delivery is usually within two to five days after mailing out.  You can check out my in-depth review here.

Final Thoughts

In today’s PayPal and virtual gift card world, it’s still hard to find a survey company that pays via a physical check.  In my opinion, it’s so much easier and safer to use PayPal.  To me, it’s the same as a physical check, only that you don’t have to worry about it getting lost in the mail.  That’s just my opinion, however.

For now, if you do want to get paid by check, there are some options, as you can see.

Just sign up for the platform, complete the surveys as mentioned and then cash out when ready.  If the company does pay via check, just keep an eye out for an email confirmation as some will send you a confirmation and/or tracking number to keep tabs on your check arrival.  Expect to receive you check about a week later after you complete the surveys and cash out.

That wraps it up.
