When I started out making money from home, one of the first things I checked out was online survey sites. Most I found were American, but here are some Aussie ones I have found to be good. They are all free to join and you choose which surveys you do. Most people I know do surveys while they wait in line at the grocery store, in the waiting room at the doctors or waiting to pick up kids. Instead of that time being wasted, they make a little cash.
The following are the ones I have used with most success and yes, some are affiliate links. I use the affiliate money in giveaways and things on www.thethriftyissue.com.au to say thanks to my amazing community.
This one is fairly new, it is easy to join though and even when I had a small glitch once, they sorted it and my payment went through fine. Payment for surveys have been higher than the average for other sites and you get $1 per friend you refer plus get paid when they do surveys so you can make money a few ways with Octopus Group.
One of my favourites and it's not just a survey site. You can get paid to search using it instead of Google, get points for shopping and more. You accrue points then cash out for gift cards, products or cash. The cash is paid in USD, which as an Aussie, means for the last $50 I cashed out it was around $65 I got!
Pureprofile is fairly easy to get money with. You get paid even if you don't fit a survey, but they are strict on how much you can cash out and how often so it isn't a site you can get unlimited earnings on.
Survey Junkie is a site with loads of online survey sites you can join. I haven not tried all the sites they list, but it is worth a look, see how you go and I would love to hear how you do.
What Do You Think is a great one I have been earning $20 here and there from for years. You also get paid to update your profile every few months which is a nice bonus.
