I am in search of legit ways to earn money or gifts on the internet. I know that some people were talking about online surveys. Which companies are legit? What else is out there?

Have you given any thought to selling on EBay. You may wish to check that out. It is always good for some extra money. You will need a camera to take photos of merchandise before listing it. Good Luck! (06/11/2006)
bzzagent.com, mysurvey.com, lightspeedpanel.com, your2cents com these are the sites i frequent. It is not quick but I am racking up some points for stuff to get in exchange. (06/12/2006)
Zoom Panel Surveys. They don't pay in dollars, but you can get lots of free stuff. You may also wish to join Home Testing Institute and Consumer Mail Panel. Both pay you (small amounts) to test products (you get to keep) and take surveys. I've been doing all three for years and am quite pleased. (06/12/2006)
Honestly, most survey companies are legit and you can make money but not very much. I have personally made a few dollars with these but not anything significant. I would have to say that starting your own business and running it online or selling on ebay is much more profitable.(06/12/2006)

Check pineconeresearch.com from time to time. They only have certain periods when you can sign up but they pay $5 for most surveys. I get one about every 2 weeks.
Another website I like is mypoints.com. You get points for clicking on links in emails. Also, you can "click through" their site to online merchants and earn points when you make purchases. Ebay is one site you can earn points for. You can redeem the points for gift cards. They just started offering WalMart giftcards, which to me is as good as cash since I get all my groceries there. A $10 gift card is 1500 points, or 300 emails, or about 60 days of clicking on emails if you get about 5 emails a day.
You can't expect to make a living doing these kinds of things, but every little bit helps. And it's always fund to get a treat for free. I usually get Barnes and Noble giftcards from mypoints because they accept them at the cafe. Then my husband and I can go on a free date for dessert and coffee. A $25 giftcard is 3250 points and it's enough for about 3 dates.
I'm glad other people who posted feedback reminded me of some other sources of goodies. I'd been letting a lot of things slide into my junkmail folder but now I'm inspired to try them again! (06/13/2006)
