QNA: A Nice Little Earner...

...But only if you're in the UK for the moment. Sorry!

I've been a member of the QNA online survey panel for several years now, and during that time I've earned hundreds of pounds in Amazon vouchers from them by completing short (typically five or six questions) online surveys.

Reward vouchers arrive almost instantly, and active members are also entered in a monthly prize draw. No fee is required to join. QNA are by a distance the best firm in the online survey field I have ever found.

QNA are currently looking to expand their panel, so this is a good time to apply to them. As mentioned above, you do have to be UK-based (though this may change in future). Also, you must be in business in some capacity. You can be running your own business (and yes, freelance writers do qualify) or working in a managerial capacity for someone else. They probably won't accept you if you're unemployed, a student or a homemaker, unfortunately.

As stated, the rewards comprise vouchers from Amazon, usually for 5 or 10 pounds. That may not sound a lot, but surveys can typically be completed in five minutes or less. You can also choose to receive vouchers from other major retailers, or donate your fees to charity. Personally I ask for Amazon vouchers, as they are almost as good as cash as far as I'm concerned - there's always something I want from Amazon!

The company behind QNA is Vanson Bourne, a well-known market research company in the technology and business-to-business field. Based on my experience, if you're eligible to join their panel, I'd say signing up should be a no-brainer.

Hello Nick

Thanks for the tip regarding the surveys. I have just signed up. I am a freelance transcriber and I write paid letters and articles. I look forward to getting started with the surveys.

Kind regards.

Wendy
P.S. I am glad your captcha word verification is legible. I usually find I can't read those squiggles.

Thanks, Wendy. I hope you enjoy being a QNA panelist and make lots of money through them.

And yes, I know what you mean about those Captcha boxes!

Thanks for your comment, Sami. If you're UK-based and you sign up with QNA, then - assuming they accept you - they will start sending you surveys to complete. I'm sorry I can't do anything to speed up this process for you. You'll understand, I'm simply a happy member of the QNA panel. I don't run the company myself!

Thanks for this, Nick. I also do Valued Opinions surveys, which also pay in vouchere; there's a choice of several retailers but I always go for Amazon because it's instant, rather than waiting for them to arrive by snailmail. You only earn 75p to £2.50 per survey they take minutes to do but it soon builds up. I've amassed about £100 worth of books in the 18 months I've been doing it:) Which reminds me, I have another £20 to transfer onto my Amazon account. Time to go shopping, methinks.

Thanks, Trish. Yes, I've just ordered another CD with my Amazon vouchers from QNA! I'll take a look at Valued Opinions as well.

Incidentally, anyone who has a website should also check out Money4Banners, which has been paying me £5 a month in Amazon vouchers for some years now: http://www.mywritingblog.com/2007/11/earn-sideline-income-from-your-website.html
