I don't like redeemable points much. I prefer cash. And if you take paid surveys, you've probably noticed most panels are now paying in redeemable points instead of in cash.
While I realize that most survey panels sites do make it so you can redeem your points for cash if they have a Paypal option when you redeem, there's still just something about knowing how much you were paid in cash to complete a survey.
I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking the whole points thing is often pretty confusing.
If you like answering questions for paid survey panels here and there for some extra money (or points … ? ) here are a handful that actually do still pay in cash.
The cash you receive may be in the form of a check that is mailed to you, direct deposit, or Paypal. It will just vary depending on the panel.
Paid Survey Panels Paying Cash
1 – Paid Viewpoint
One of the better paid survey panels!
Paid Viewpoint is straight up cash and they don't make any bones about it. They even want to know your Paypal email pretty much right after you agree to sign up. I like that! I could even see in real-time how much money I was earning as I answered each question for them. Very cool.
They also pay pretty quickly after you request your money. You only need $5 to cash out.
2 – SavvyConnect
This survey panel is open to people aged 13 and up in the US and UK. You will receive a mailed check for your participation.
This panel is basically like an app that you connect to SavvyConnect so they can track your internet browsing behaviors.
I know this certainly won't appeal to everyone — particularly those of you who seriously value your privacy — but the company is not interested in your private life, just information that would be helpful to advertisers and marketers.
You can install SavvyConnect on your PC, tablet, or phone. You earn $20 for each device you have it connected to, and it must be installed for at least 30 days to receive your earnings. So, it's possible to get an easy $60 a month here.
Sometimes SavvyConnect will also send you paid survey invitations as well.

3 – Mindfield Online
I added this one thanks to a reader's suggestion below.
Mindfield is another one that has been around for a long time and pays in cash. I haven't participated much here, but I know they are legit and pay as promised. You only need $5 to cash out, but most surveys pay around $1.
Sometimes the panel is closed to new participants, so you'll have to check back periodically if you try the link and it's closed.
Go here to sign up with Mindfield Online if they are open.
4 – Crowdology
Crowdology is open to people 18 and older in the US and UK. They pay in cash via Paypal with no points system.
You can also request Amazon gift cards instead if that suits you more. You do need at least $8 in your account to request a payment. Crowdology is known for paying pretty fast — sometimes the pay comes right away and other times it may take 2-3 days.
Go here to sign up with Crowdology.
5 – iPoll
iPoll doesn't use a points system, and they also credit your account with $5 just for signing up. In addition to cash paid via Paypal, they will also send you gift cards instead if you'd prefer those.
You do need $50 in your account to get paid with Paypal, but you only need $25 if you are looking to get other types of rewards.
Go here to sign up with iPoll.
Good luck if you decide to sign up with any of these panels!
