I have been completing surveys for years. It is fun and exciting and so easy to just give your opinion for items that you use everyday. Some companies offer special projects that pays $50-$500.

Spark is a transportation company that markets Walmart deliveries. They operate in 180+ US cities and provide both businesses and individual customers with a reliable service.
