Home survey opportunity

For each survey completed, you receive a certain number of ‘Lightspeed points’ (typically between 50 and 110 per survey), and these can then be traded for vouchers or cash through PayPal at a rough exchange rate of 1 point per penny.
Having only been doing this a week, I’ve already got myself a £5 Amazon voucher, and am well on the way to another one.”
