Since I’ve been unemployed I’ve been making some money from the following survey sites. These are all sites that have paid me so I know they are all legitimate.
Do not ever pay anyone to “allow” you to take surveys. All legitimate sites are always FREE!

And lastly, Pinecone Research is one of my favorites… you can do both surveys & product testing, they send you a check right after you have completed your activity. You cannot however become a member without finding a referral link. The following link is not always active. I’ll continue to try to update with a working link whenever it’s available.

Another option is to start doing mystery shopping… which, in my opinion, can sometimes be more trouble than it’s worth. But, you can get some good free stuff and, if you’re unemployed, it does help to pass the time!
I have done some mystery shopping myself but, I can’t comment directly on all the companies listed in this Article from MSN Money . The article does however give a great overview of a variety of opportunities.
