10+ Survey Sites That Don’t Disqualify

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

There’s nothing more annoying than signing up for a survey website and finding out that more than 80% of the surveys you take disqualify you.

Yes, this is commonplace; however, not all survey websites work like this thankfully.

In today’s guide, I wanted to talk about legitimate survey sites that don’t disqualify you 100%.  Some may reward you, whereas some allow you to take every survey you see.  As in all of my guides, I’m always 100% honest, only recommending what I feel is worth your time.

Let’s begin!

Best Survey Sites That Don’t Disqualify You


The QuickThoughts app is probably one of my favorite apps for a few reasons.

For one, all surveys pay at least $1 and they offer instant payouts once you hit $10 in rewards.  The only downfall, at least to some, is that they only offer two reward options, which are Amazon gift cards and iTunes cards.  If that’s okay with you, then it’s an app to consider.

If you do download the app, just make sure you fill out your profile in detail so that you receive surveys.  Whenever you see an invite, you are almost guaranteed you can complete it for the rewards mentioned, usually more than $1+ 99% of the time.

QuickThoughts is free to join and only can be used on your phone.


Prolific is one of my favorite survey sites at the moment.  In fact, it’s one I use almost every day because there are so many surveys to keep me busy and they pay quite well.  Last year alone, I made more than $1,000 using the website.

The great thing about the website is that they aren’t like your typical “branded” survey websites that take 20 minutes to complete every survey that comes your way.  Instead, most of the surveys revolve around academic surveys, so I find most of them to be more interesting.

Best of all, for every survey you see on your dashboard you qualify for and you won’t disqualify for any, I promise you that much.

Depending on your demographics, you could see 20+ surveys a day, which means a lot of earning opportunity for you.

Again, all surveys you see on your dashboard you will qualify for.

Pinecone Research

The cool thing about Pinecone Research is that every survey invite you receive will pay out $3, and you will qualify for any invite you see.

The only problem with Pinecone, however, is that there’s often a waiting list and it may take a while before you even get in.

Even if you get in, the company doesn’t send out a ton of invites, but it could make you a few dollars a month.  Like the many mentioned here, don’t expect to get rich.

I was given a special link you can follow below to see if you can get accepted.  Good luck.


Whenever you receive a survey invite from PaidViewpoint, you will be able to take it, no matter what.

I have been part of this company for a year now and probably make $50 a year, maybe a pinch more; however, as a full disclaimer, I don’t use it all that much.  Nonetheless, it’s one to consider as the surveys are short and sweet 99% of the time.

In the beginning, you will start with short surveys to learn more about your demographics, but as the company learns about you, more invites will come your way.

Once you hit $15 in rewards, you can cash out via PayPal.

Testable Minds

Testable Minds isn’t as popular as most, but it doesn’t mean you should at least consider it.  It’s as simple as finding an interesting test and then completing it to receive the reward.

The cool thing about this website is that if you a study on your dashboard, you will be able to take it with no disqualifications.

Most studies, on average, pay about $1 to $9+ and is focused around academics, similar to that of Prolific.


YouGov doesn’t offer as many survey opportunities as most mentioned here, but it’s another one that won’t disqualify you.

Whenever you receive a survey invite, you will be able to take it.

YouGov mainly focuses on news events, such as politics, etc.  Usually, whenever you see statistics sourced in a news article, it often comes from this research company, seeing it’s one of the leaders in the industry.

YouGov is 100% free to join and is open to many countries.

Websites That Pay You for Disqualifications

Some websites will pay you for disqualifications, but I didn’t want to include them above as it isn’t a true survey site that allows you to complete every survey that comes your way.  Do keep in mind, however, that some sites will at least reward you when you don’t qualify.  This is better than nothing.

The websites mentioned below will pay you anywhere from $0.01 to $0.05~ for every survey you get booted from:

Final Thoughts

Unfortunately, most survey sites will have disqualifications, but you may find some that will at least reward you a few cents if you get booted, such as Swagbucks.

To avoid a lot of disqualifications, I often recommend that you fill out your profile in its entirety and only take surveys based on the title where you see fit.  What I mean by that is focus on the title and see if it applies to your life.  For example, if it says a survey about “dogs” and you don’t own a dog, then I would just close it immediately to avoid going through the pre-screener.  I know most survey sites don’t tell you what the survey is about, but once you click on it, you can figure out what it’s about, usually in the first few clicks.

As always, everything mentioned in my guides is 100% legit.  If any of these options sound of interest, be sure to follow the link for more information.  The more survey sites you join, the more you can make, and there’s no limit as to how many you can join.

That’s going to wrap it up.

  • Qmee pays you for declines but in the six years I’ve used that garbage website I can count like maybe 10 times they’ve ever done it.

    Just don’t do surveys for money. Get a job.
