Do you like that chance to win big money? Then these survey panels that offer sweepstakes are perfect for you.
While I typically like going with a sure thing, such as knowing how much money I'm going to make for a certain amount of time, I am definitely a fan of trading in some points or taking a quick surveys to win money, prizes or even getaways.
Below I have four survey companies that I believe offer you the best chances and winnings for sweepstakes. The best part is that for most of them you don't have to do anything but take regular surveys. I'll explain more below
The Best Surveys to Win Money, Prizes, and Even Getaways

The order of this list is solely about the sweepstakes they offer, and do not represent my ranking of the survey sites in general, as you can notice without Swagbucks being at the top, since it is currently my favorite.
1. Ipsos i-Say
Ipsos i-Say is a great survey panel in general, even if they didn't offer their sweepstakes I would still fully recommend them. But when it comes to your chance of winning, it is hard to beat i-Say with their numerous sweepstakes. They offer five different sweepstakes.
First, is their Monthly Click Draw. This is there sweepstake available to everyone, and all you have to do is take surveys as normal. So you take a survey, get paid for that survey, plus get entered into their monthly sweepstakes. There are 56 prizes they give out each month, from cash to gift cards.
Secondly, is their Trading Post Draw. This is one of the big ones, and happens every quarter. You can trade in 250 i-Say points for an entry. Which seems like a big fee, but you could win an expensive prize package or a fully paid vacation.
Next you have their welcome to i-Say Drawing. This is exclusively for people who are new to i-Say. So all you have to do is sign-up*, and take a survey for points and you get a chance to win $5,000. That is a great opportunity for simply joining i-Say.
The last two are smaller ones. The first of which is their Quirky Poll Question, where they simply ask you a quick question, like what is your favorite food and you get a chance to win 250 i-Say points. This poll happens every Wednesday on their Facebook page.
The second short one is a poll predictor, which comes up after you finish completing a survey. They just ask you to guess the right percentage of people who answered “yes” to a question. If you get it right, you get an extra entry into the Monthly Prize Draw. Every entry helps!
2 & 3. Survey Spot & Opinion Outpost
The reason I have two companies here is because they are owned and operated by the exact same market research company, Sample Survey International. They are run exactly the same, and share the same quarterly prize. I think this is great for a few reasons.
First, they are both good survey companies that pay well. Secondly, you are entered for each time you take a survey. So like with i-Say, this means you get paid and get an entry to their sweepstakes. The third reason this is good is because if you are using both survey companies, as I recommend, then you are getting twice the chances of winning the sweepstakes. That is really awesome
The best part of their quarterly drawing is that the prize is $10,000.
That is not bad for simply taking survey for money!
Each Swagbuck is about $0.01, so you can get a chance to win $500 for an entry fee for $0.05. That is a very good return on your money if you win.
Why I also like Swagbuck's “Swagstakes” is because they offer so many different entries. You can try to win iPads, computers, gift cards, cash, and a ton of others.
Since there so many different Swagstakes, this increases your chances to win since entries will be spread out over different giveaways.
While contests aren't a sure thing, why would you pass up using companies that give you a chance to win for simply taking surveys on their sites? Especially when the sites are already legit paying survey companies.
