I first heard about iPoll through a Swagbucks survey (you can read my Swagbucks guide here) and I am so glad that I did! iPoll have both a smart phone app and a website where you can earn money for completing surveys. The web version of iPoll is pretty much what you'd expect from a survey website. There are regular surveys across a wide range of subjects, and payment tends to be between 50p – £2.
However, using the iPoll app is where things start to get more lucrative. There are a number of tasks to complete, either whilst out shopping or filming videos of your opinions on various matters. The shopping missions involve visiting a particular retailer and purchasing an item – a recent one I completed was a beverage purchase, with the reward being £5. The task involved uploading the receipt and answering a few demographic questions, such as gender and age. Earlier in the year, they carried out the “Brit's Voice” study, which involved filming yourself for 3-5 minutes a day talking about a topic they provided – and once even filming the contents of your fridge. As well as receiving a payment for each video and question I answered during this study, they also provided an additional reward of £53.77.
You can redeem your earnings in numerous ways. The redemptions are listed in US Dollars, but this is converted to GBP at the current exchange rate.

I've been using iPoll for a few months now, and I'm very impressed that my overall earnings to date are almost £100. You can use the app alongside the website, so you're never short of earning opportunities.
