Skip to main content Get Paid For Your Opinions

Looking for ways to earn extra money to help build your savings account or to help pay some bills? Check out, where you will get paid for participating in legitimate focus groups conducted by various marketing companies.

From the website:
 "Our team gathers focus groups from around the web and works directly with some of the top market research firms to bring you legitimate paid focus group opportunities.
 Since we started in 2006, we have listed over 27,500 legitimate focus group opportunities and worked with virtually every market research firm in the United States. FindFocusGroups has been featured on: The Today Show, Women's Health, Reader's Digest,, and!" researches and lists hundreds of legitimate focus groups that are looking for participants. You can search for focus groups and research studies coming up in your city, and apply to the ones that interest you. It may take a few steps to determine if you qualify, but if you have some extra time to spare, and apply for different studies, it can increase your chances of qualifying for one or more.

When you do qualify for a focus group, you will be paid a pre-determined amount after completing the study. Some surveys may be completed online, while other research/marketing focus groups will be held at designated locations. How much you get paid and the method of payment will vary according to the company conducting the study. But just by browsing the site, it looks like most surveys are paying between $10-$200.

It is definitely worth bookmarking this site and checking back often as they post about 25 and 45 new focus group studies every weekday, with most being added on Mondays.

A word of caution: even though the company is committed to posting only researched, verified and legitimate paying surveys, they warn that you should never give your Social Security number or bank account number to anyone claiming to be doing market research. They also advise users to use their best judgment when they give out information, sharing only information that you are comfortable giving.

newspaper, grocery bags, paper bags, or anything else you can use to stuff the socks with
a black knit cap
black yarn

Stuff each sock with paper or bags or filling of some sort.

Attach each sock to the side seams of the shirt (two socks on each side)
(I would suggest sewing the socks to securely attach them to the shirt, but duct tape can probably work as well.)

Next,  you will want to attach the black yarn in-between each sock and the cuffs of the shirt. This can be done in a couple of different ways. You can use the duct tape to attach a yarn piece at the cuff of the sleeve, and then tape the end of the yarn on t…
