The ones I'm joined up to and that I have found the best (I've pretty much tried them all haha!)
Valued opinions - they give you a dollar amount for every survey eg. $2.50 so it doesn't take too long to get to 20.
My survey - I've been with them for years and have gotten hundreds in gift cards over the years.
Wdyt - I have only been with them a few months and already got a few $20 gift cards.
Global test market - I have got quite a few gift cards from them and I think they even have an app so it's easier.
Opinionworld - it seems to take longer to accumulate points but have gotten a few gift cards over the years.
My opinions - seem alright but I hardly get survey invites so it's going to take a while to accumulate points.
Rewards central as a pp said too!
Also some of the surveys are completely boring and seem stupid so you have to push through. My husband signed up to one of them for a day, got his first survey and couldn't get through it because he doesn't have the patience!
I've also had really different ones too. One sent me a tv show to watch I had to analyze the ads in between. One sent me a diary to record my cleaning habits for a week. Another was going to send a weeks worth of nappies to try but I hadn't had my baby yet so I screened out of that one. So sometimes they can be different but mostly they can be a bit boring!
Sorry for the novel haha but a lot of people think it's not worth it but I definitely think it is, I just sit down most nights when I'm watching tv and do them.
In qld if you buy woolies gift cards and show your racq card you get 5% off. Use those to buy groceries . Set budget and discount .
If your credit card has a rewards program use it for all purchases and just transfer the money onto the card at the end of the month.
Usually by the end of the year we have enough points to get gift cards that we use to buy Christmas presents and have go for a splurge at the sales.
I know someone who subscribes to online competition sites and has won a lot of free stuff. She sells the stuff she doesn't need on ebay. I think they take a bit of effort & creativity though (e.g. "in 20 words or less..." )

Can someone please elaborate on the whole paying everything on your credit card thing and receiving rewards? Which is a good CC? DH hates CCs so need to sell this to him 😜 Great tips everyone btw!!
There are so many credit card rewards programs out there- most major credit cards would be linked to one. I have an NAB credit card which is 'velocity rewards'. I like it because I can use the rewards for supermarket vouchers (I use Coles), but you can use it for flights etc (I never fly anywhere!). Also, because I shop at Coles, I use my credit card AND present my flybuys card so I am getting 2 sets of rewards (velocity and flybuys). I always redeem flybuy rewards for flybuy dollars. I pay for everything on credit card, then pay it off right away. I am always surprised at how often I get to cash in my rewards.
