When it comes to making money online for teenagers, there is nothing easier than using survey websites to do so. Unlike other online jobs for teenagers, taking surveys allow you to work when you want and how often you would like.
One of the problems teens face is that it is difficult to find survey websites that allow teenagers and are legitimate sites that actually payout. That is why I put this list together.
If you're a teenager looking to make money online, then this list will prove very useful.

Swagbucks is hands down, the best way for a teenager to make money online. It is available to anyone in the US, UK, Ireland, Australia and Canada over the age of 13. They pay you in Swagbucks, and each Swagbuck is worth about $.01.
In 3 days, I was able to make 1,300 Swagbucks, which is $13. It did not take me very long at all.
If you read my review and use all my tips and ticks, you could definitely make more than that, especially if you use them everyday.

CashCrate is one of my favorite survey taking websites, and fortunately the age requirement for their site is only 13 years old. They offer a lot of ways to make money, such as taking surveys, watching videos, filling out offers and a few others.
Some of the offers require a credit or debit card, but if you don't have one of those, there are still plenty of ways for you to take advantage of their site.
One of the best things about CashCrate is that they reward in cash.
Check out my in depth review of CashCrate that teaches you how to get the most money for your time here: My CashCrate Review
Focus Forward is another website that offers multiple ways to make money. It is a mixture of surveys, focus groups (both in-person and online) and telephone surveys. If keeping your income primarily online is your goal, you can stick with the surveys and online focus groups.
The focus groups are what payout the best for your time, so I recommend going after those. Focus Forward also pays out in cash, which is great.
One of my tips for making money online is to take advantage of what the website pays best for. So you could use Focus Forward for online focus groups, and combine that with CashCrates offers section, and then add in other websites as you go.
4. Survey Savvy
Survey Savvy only offers taking surveys, which balances out with what I recommend using the top 2 websites for.
One of the best things about Survey Savvy is that you can cash out with only $1 in your account, which is the lowest cash out level I have come across. Also, when you do not qualify for a survey, you get an entry into their sweepstakes, which could possibly win you one of their dozens of prizes each month.
BzzAgent is a little different then the above mentioned websites in that you don't get paid out in cash, but it is still a favorite among the survey taking community.
The reason people like BzzAgent so much is that is is a product testing and reviewing website. After you sign up, you continuously take surveys until they match you up with a campaign that matches your demographic. The more surveys you fill out about yourself, the more campaigns they will be able to find you.
Once you qualify for a campaign, you either are mailed the product or sent a coupon which will allow you to buy it for free. Then you test it out, and basically write and talk about it.
Along with getting to keep the free product, you will be rewarded 3 MyPoints per survey completed and 10-75 MyPoints per activity completed. You can then redeem MyPoints at www.mypoints.com for a big selections of all kinds of products.
TeenEyes is another good option when it comes to teenagers making money online. The website is owned by C&R Research, which is a well established company within the market research field. When you sign up, they mail papers to your parent to sign, in order to fully establish that you are allowed to participate in the studies.
Since I am not a teenager, I can't sign up for the site. However, from the reviews I read online about TeensEyes, it is a legitimate paying website, and you make money through a variety of surveys, product testing and focus groups.
The focus of the site is around products and services for teens, including snack foods, clothing, music and television shows. One of the product tests I saw that they did was a frozen pizza, so it appears that this site could be a fun one.
They offer a point system, in which 1 cent equals 1 point. With activities coming between 200 to 2,000 points, you can make between $2 to $20 per activity.
American Consumer Opinion is another website that is a combination of surveys and product testing. The surveys are rarely over 10 minutes, and the payout is at a $10 minimum. Most surveys are worth 100+ points, which equals $1 or more per survey.
You have to be 14 years or older to use American Consumer Opinion. They are a legitimate paying survey website, with over 6 million members over 150 countries.
So there you have it. 7 legitimate websites that offer making money online for teenagers. Like I mentioned before, it is best to sign up for multiple websites, so you don't have to constantly wait to be invited to survey panels, focus groups or product testing.
