They actually give you the option of being paid in gift cards or cash. Plus, when you qualify, they actually have some surveys that pay up to $50! (Note, that is not the usual but it does happen.) Most of the surveys are about $4 a piece though, which is great for some extra pocket change!
I am posting these for those of you interested in making a couple extra bucks while on the computer, like I've mentioned previously, I actually make a decent amount from doing surveys every month, enough to pay a bill or two!
