5 things you won't buy with money you earn taking surveys

Getting paid doing online surveys for money is a great way to earn a little extra cash for food, gifts, going out or saving. It's a profitable hobby and a great way to stay productive in your downtime. It won't make you a millionaire, though.

No matter how many questionnaires you complete, the rewards won't add up to thousands in no time. Paid surveys are great for a rainy day fund, but you won't buy a house with your earnings. Here are a few other things you probably won't buy thanks to online surveys.

910 Foothill Rd, Beverly Hills, CA 90210
This is the address of the most expensive home currently on the market in Beverly Hills, according to Zillow. The nine-bedroom, 12-bathroom, 8,700-square-foot residence comes with beautifully manicured gardens, a Cipriani-style pool and a $25-million price tag. Don't expect to meet the $90,000 estimated monthly mortgage payments with online surveys.

Lamborghini Veneno Roadster
Forbes' most expensive vehicle of 2014, this 750-horsepower, 6.5-liter, 12-cylinder monster jets from 0 to 60 mph in under 3 seconds. In case you need get across town really, really quick, this roadster reaches a top speed of 221 mph. It also has a starting price of $4.5 million, so you might want to settle for a Buggati.

Triple Deuce
This mega yacht doesn't even exist yet, according to CNN. It measures 222 meters from stem to stern - hence the name - and is fit to become the world's largest superyacht, not to mention the most expensive privately owned yacht on the planet. It's currently being funded and built by a mysterious buyer whose identity remains unknown. Estimated costs for production top $1.2 billion dollars. Predicted operating costs range from $20 million to $30 million annually. 

How many surveys would you have to complete to afford this giant of the sea? Roughly all of them ever.

The Graves Supercomplication watch
It's about time you upgraded your watch game, and not any dollar-store buy will do. Luckily, the Graves Supercomplication timepiece - an 80-year-old gold pocket watch - might be just the stylish trinket for you. It caught a great deal of attention at Sotheby's in Geneva, Switzerland, where it was auctioned with a low-end estimate of $15.6 million. With that price tag, it's the most expensive watch in the world, according to Fortune magazine.

Goldgenie's 24-Karat Gold-Plated Bike
When cycling isn't the high class experience you're expecting, Goldgenie has just the fix you're looking for, according to Bornrich.com. The U.K.-based company recently constructed a 24-karat gold-plated racing bicycle. Everything from the handlebars to the spokes to the bike chain is coated in the precious metal. The base model costs just $390,000, but who would be caught dead in the base model? Luckily, buyers can spend upwards of $470,000 to adorn the frame of the bike with diamonds.

Just make sure those gems don't scratch the paint on your Veneno Roadster while you're loading the bike into the trunk.
