Could medical testing be a fun way to make money?

Jillian Shea thinks it is: She made $12,000 from participating in sleep studies.

She answered a few questions online from her home in Florida before heading to Boston for the lucrative study.

And she’s not alone.

NASA’s sleep study at the Johnson Space Center in Houston paid participants $5,000 per month to stay in bed.

But these clinical trials can be intensive. You’ll earn your pay through regular check-ups and exams, some uncomfortable tests and bouts of isolation.

Want to participate in medical research without leaving home?

You can earn $5-$100 taking online surveys and contribute to advancements in medical treatment — without even leaving your couch!

How to Earn Up to $100 in 30 Minutes

M3 Global Research is recruiting folks around the country to participate in paid online surveys.

The company is currently seeking participants in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami and New York.

Register here to get started.

After you sign up, the company will start sending you surveys that pay $5-$100 each — if you qualify.

They take about 20-30 minutes, and you can complete surveys online, over the phone or in person in your city.

The company is also recruiting for surveys on several conditions, including psoriasis, cancer, migraines and cardiovascular diseases. Check the boxes that apply to your conditions to qualify for more surveys.

And the studies are always changing.

After you register and complete your profile, you’ll receive survey invitations tailored to your information. You won’t be spammed with irrelevant surveys.

Medical testing can be fun… and you don’t even have to face needles or prodding doctors to reap the benefits!

Your Turn: Do you live in any of these cities or know someone there who would participate in medical surveys?
