Types of Surveys Offered
GlobalTestMarket offers online surveys that help companies develop new products and services. For every successful survey completion, members are awarded points. Survey lengths vary, but are typically between 10 - 20 minutes. 1 point = approximately $0.05.
Global Test Market offers many different reward options:
Global Test Market is an online survey panel operated by GMI (Global Market Insite, Inc.), now owned by Lightspeed Research. Global Test Market has approximately 5.5 million members across 200 different countries.
I do a lot of survey site but this one is definitely lower on my like list then any other of my sites. The surveys are lengthy and you can get through very longs ones only to be told you have screened out or the test is closed. I finally got 220 points to redeem for a $10 amazon gift code which I thought was very reasonable (about five surveys) only be told when I went to try and redeem that needed at LEAST 1000 points before I could try and redeem. THAT WAS WHEN MY OPINION WENT SOUTH. NO WHERE IN THEIR INFO ON THE PAGE SAYS I NEED AT LEAST 1000 POINTS TO REDEEM THE ANYTHING. I think it's absolute BS that I have to work up to 1000 to spend when I already have enough points to buy SOME items. I NEVER ran into this type of red tape with any of my other sites. I'm going to stick to it but If I finally ever do get up to 1000 points and get blocked again some how that will be the end of me and this panel.
As far as making the most money(on 1 site) this the best I've found. I make about $50 per month, doing Global Test Market surveys BUT it's time consuming. I've noticed that the more time consuming, the particular survey is, the less chance of actually being awarded the promised points. SEARS is offering secret-shopper-surveys on many of these survey sites. You need to: Go to your local SEARS location, Take pictures inside and out of the store, speak to a salesperson about different tv models, get the salesperson to SIGN a business card for you, get written info on TVs, upload photos and answer countless questions and write many paragraphs of opinions on EVERYTHING about SEARS. I was promised 200 points for spending a total of 4 hours on this "project". I was disgusted to receive 30 lousy points instead of the promised 200. It cost more than $1.50(equal to points received)for the gas to drive to SEARS & back.On another survey, I agreed to do a 24 hour diary of all conversations, I've had with people. It was extremely time consuming and I entered endless paragraphs and answered endless questions only to reach the very end of the last survey and see a page that warns me that my pc is in danger and on an unsafe and unsecured site. I was awarded NOTHING. I also refuse to allow my children to do ANY surveys because of questionable content , I and my daughter saw in one survey and for the fact that a survey asked my 9 y/o daughter for our HOME ADDRESS, once! WHAT? Thankfully, my daughter asked me before entering ALL of our most personal information and possibly compromising our safety. From now on, I'll only complete the short, simple surveys , myself. No more, keeping diaries and secret shopper missions. I won't buy products to review them, either. By doing these surveys, we learn how unethical and slimy advertisers and big companies really can be.
GlobalTestMarket.com: I was a member of their site for last year and completed many, many surveys totaling probably several hours of my time. I reached the agreed upon point total for my first payment, and tried to redeem it. The site told me it would require much more than it clearly stated, so I sent them an email asking whether this was a mistake of some kind why I am not able to log in? The next day, my user name and password no longer worked. Figured, they terminated my account and said I am using so many I.d?Just because I was going to take cash out that's why they terminated my account.I just want to ask why they did it?I will never ever recommend it to someone. I am from India.
By far my favorite site! I cannot say enough good things about them! I cannot get what other people say are issues with this site. I qualify for more than 1/2 of the surveys sent to me & if I don't they don't make me spend 20 minutes trying to qualify. I cash out 2-4 times a month, no joke! When I do my allotted surveys every day I can usually make about $200 a month on this site! I know many people probably don't believe that, but I do & the great part about it is I don't have to spend my entire day on there. I usually am done all the surveys in under an hour. When I cash out on amazon I get my gift card in around 5 days & when I use paypal it is within 10-13 days.
Been with them a couple of months and earned enough points for a few payouts - I'm saving for $100 PayPal though.
I've had a few surveys that dropped/closed while I was either mid survey or just finished. There is a "contact us" page where I explained the issue; to date all they have said is basically "too bad" in relation to any of these situations. While this is a bit frustrating, I've had more good experiences than bad.
My points were credited and I managed to save enough points for a $100 payout which was in my PayPal account in about 3 days.
