Opinions might be a dime a dozen, but some companies are willing to pay for yours.

Taking surveys is among a growing number of online activities you might already be doing — but could be getting paid to do. You just need to know where to look for these opportunities.

We’ve rounded up a few examples of websites and apps that essentially pay you for your opinion. All of them are free to use — just sign up for an account if you don’t already have one.

1. Swagbucks

Swagbucks’ mission is “to get you free gift cards by rewarding you points (called SB) for things you do online.” Those things include taking surveys and answering polls.

To learn more about making money with Swagbucks, check out “Earn Up to $2,700 a Year Watching Videos, Answering Surveys.”

2. Survey Junkie

This website describes itself as “the most popular spot online to earn cash and rewards for sharing your thoughts.”

In exchange for your thoughts, Survey Junkie will reward you with points, which you can redeem “for cash via PayPal or e-giftcards,” according to its website.

3. Google Opinion Rewards

This Android app from Google will send you a survey about once a week and pay you up to $1 in Google Play credits for completing it.

Credits can be used to purchase things such as apps, movies or e-books from Google Play, the official app store for Android devices.
