MySoapBox offers a variety of electronic vouchers (e-vouchers, or online gift cards) in exchange for participating in surveys. Although 5,000 points (worth $5) is required to redeem rewards, some retailers offer gift vouchers in denominations as low as $1 (1,000 points).
MySoapbox Referral Program
Members of the MySoapbox panel can refer their friends and family living in other households in exchange for 250 points.
Note: MySoapBox recently acquired the ClickIQ e/visor Panel.
I have been a member of this panel for years, way back when it was ClickIQ. When they transferred people over, even if someone (like me) had over 20,000 points, they state that you have to earn 25,000 points initially "so we know you are serious". I emailed them and had quite a debate about this, pointing out that clearly many of us are serious as we had been members of ClickIQ previously. They wouldn't budge. I get very few surveys from them.
The other day I actually got to the 25,000 mark, but at the end of the survey I got an error page saying they couldn't record my participation!! I was very upset and emailed them about it. To their credit, they did confirm my participation and I was able to redeem for an Amazon gift card. BUT this site is such a hassle to use - lots of disqualifications - and if I have to fight for my points it just isn't worth it. Not sure I will continue with them.
I surprised at the low reviews, but most appear to relate to qualifying and that has not been a big issue for me but it does happen occasionally. In any case, I've been a member now for about a year and I find survey qualifications are pretty consistent with other survey sites. What I like best though is that there actually appears be a real person manning the customer service desk, and the responses I get to my issues or inquires are prompt and clearly answer my problem. I've noticed on many other sites such as MySurvey or Valued Opinions that the issues are addressed for weeks and when they are, the answers are general statements or replies that have little (if anything) to do with the issue and provide no answers at all. It's clears those sites are all about making money but not paying members for time or trouble. Last point, the MySoapBox site certainly has a decent set of rewards to choose from although I wish PayPal was one of them.
This panel looked decent enough to try. The rewards are decent, but I have a problem with their surveys, I get disqualifed every time. At first I was getting points, then all the sudden every survey they sent to my email I'd be disqualified. I've even taken them right away soon as they were emailed to me. Says our quota has been filled, you've been disqualified. It even did it with a special live survey I was supposed to do with them. I was supposed to talk to a moderator and when they sent me the host link, did the same thing. I told them of this issue, and they credited me 5,000 points when it was for 20,000. I was so ready to cash out but I had that issue. It really upsets me, and I haven't bothered to contact them of the issue I'm sure I'll get the run around, but I'd avoid them for the issue of being disqualified everytime they email you a survey. It really is discouraging.
It seems some people are having problems qualifying for surveys, but that's true of any survey panel! I love MySoapBox because when you request your reward, it's processed IMMEDIATELY!
When I pick the gift card that I want and order it, I have a tab on my browser open to my e-mail. I barely hit the "order" button and I already have the gift card code ready to use! Sometimes when I'm ordering something online, I look to see if MySoapBox offers gift vouchers to that website, and if they do, I order the gift card while I'm on the checkout page of the website. Then a few seconds later, I get a discount off my order! The only annoying thing is that I wish they offered gift cards in bigger values. Just recently they added a $10 option for Amazon. Before you could only order cards in $5 or $1. 5/5 for sure.
They sent me a lot of surveys when I first singed up and I qualified for most all of them... Now I never qualified for any... My Current Point Balance Is 5960.
I doubt I will ever reach the cash out of 25000 points.
I could be wrong but i think they are one of those company that makes a lot of money off of you in the beginning and then drops you like a hot potato.
