Survey Junkie review: New to the UK

Survey Junkie is finally available to UK residents for the first time. But for me, it hasn’t been worth waiting for. Take a look at the issues I have with the site and the poor returns you’ll get for your time.

10-second Survey Junkie review

Rating: 1.5 out of 5.

So far, very underwhelming. There are a decent number of surveys, but they tend to pay far less compared to rival sites. Plus, the site is still very light on added features. Let’s hope it’s a work in progress.

If you’re serious about making money from surveys, then take a look at my top 10 list.

Survey Junkie UK

Survey Junkie has been one of the most popular survey sites in the USA for many years and I’ve always been keen to give it a try. Over on TrustPilot, it has a rating of 4.3 out of 5, so I really was expecting big things. And you can never be a member of too many survey sites.

When it finally reached UK shores, I jumped at giving it a try. But how does the UK site compare?

What is Survey Junkie?

Survey Junkie is a survey site owned by consumer insights platform DISQO, a company founded back in 2015. You share your opinions and thoughts with the site, which help to change product and services. For your time, you’ll earn rewards.

How does Survey Junkie work?

You’ll need to spend a few minutes creating an account, which will also involve filling out some profile questions. This is so that Survey Junkie can send you appropriate surveys in the future. For every survey that you complete, you’ll earn points. These can then be exchanged for cash rewards.

Once your account is set up, you can visit your dashboard and see which surveys are available. Each survey will tell you how long it should take you and how many points you will earn.

Are there any other ways to earn?

Not at the moment. The US site has something called SJ Pulse, which you can install onto your devices and it monitors digital activities such as the websites you visit and the adverts you see, all in exchange for rewards. This passive income isn’t available to UK customers.

Does Survey Junkie pay well?

When a survey site pays you in points, it can sometimes be a little difficult to work out how much you can really earn. Especially when the points and the time taken vary between surveys.

But after several weeks of being a member, I could work out an average of what you can expect to earn.

Generally, you’ll make 40 points per 15-minute survey. That means to reach 500 points, you’ll have to complete 13 surveys (well, you’ll have a few points to spare). In total, you’re looking at just over 3 hours’ worth of surveys.

That’s a pretty unimpressive £1.66 per hour.

What are the payout options?

If you’ve joined survey sites before, you’ll know that many of them give you lots of choices when it comes to withdrawing your cash, either through a gift card, prepaid debit card or cash.

Unfortunately, Survey Junkie only offers PayPal as a withdrawal option at the moment. Hopefully, that will change soon.

My Survey Junkie review conclusion

This is one of the shortest reviews that I have ever written about a survey site. And there’s not much to write because there’s not much on offer.

But I would be willing to forgive that if the surveys paid well, but unfortunately, they don’t. £1.66 per hour really isn’t worth the effort.

I hope that because this is a new site to the UK, it will improve over time and we will see far better earnings. Until then, there are plenty of other survey sites out there that will pay you far more.

I will keep on trying and will let you know if things change.
