Surveys are always interesting and worthwhile to complete. They reply promptly on queries

"Easy $, Pretty Good for staying in your PJ's"
Thursday, April 24, 2014 by K

I've been using Global Test Market since November and have made almost $300. Surveys worth 35 points say they take 10-15 minutes, but it seems like the actual time is about 7-10 minutes. $1 is about 22 points. The points add up to enough to cash out for a $50 gift card to lots of places (but not Target or Walmart, just Amazon for those types of stores), I usually get Kohl's gift cards and end up making $50 a month. It probably isn't worth the time I spend on it. Some days I will get screened out, and only get sweepstakes entries but since November I have gotten free candy, feminine products, laundry detergent booster and face wipes to try out!!! All great products.

On a good day I can make a few bucks, but some days I spend awhile getting screened out. If you have time and are willing to put up with it it isn't too bad.

Some surveys are on other websites and it can be hard or impossible to re-enter if there are technical problems, but many can be re-entered through the email link.

Overall, I think I do okay considering I have no extra costs to take these surveys. It's not a real job, but I don't have to leave my home, change my clothes, or look nice to do it, saving me some money.

Customer service for Global Test Market seems a little strange, but I usually have no problem with anything. They use Perks or PerksPlus rewards and I have had no problem receiving my reward, but it can take 4-5 weeks.

"Not Right"
Tuesday, April 22, 2014 by Alana

90% of the surveys I take, I don't get credit for. at the end of each survey, I get a message "according to our records, you've already taken this one" when I never took any of the surveys before! i'm done with this site

"A few quirks, but decent pay"
Monday, April 21, 2014 by Heath

I originally left a more negative review, but as I've used GTM more, it has become more positive. There are still a few things that keep the site from being great.

For starters, the positive. GTM offers somewhat high payouts per survey, at least compared to other sites I use, with most surveys being at least 35 points. In terms of the Paypal option, that's roughly a $1.50 per survey (230 points = $10). GTM also sends plenty of surveys on a constant basis.

Now for the bad.

GTM makes it annoying to see the rewards for a survey. On the main interface, they do not tell you what the reward for taking a survey. I have spent 20-30 mins before taking a survey just to realize all I got was an entry in the sweepstake after completing it. After you finish or are rejected from a survey, the site will offer another survey and tell you what the rewards are. Why they don't allow me to see this from the main interface, I don't know.

Perhaps the largest problem with GTM are the payout options. You cannot payout until you have at least 1000 points saved up. The minimum Paypal option is also $10, meaning I can only checkout with Paypal at 230 point intervals. This means I often checkout at $50 intervals. Finally, payouts aren't the quickest. The longest I think I've waited is 8 business days.

GTM is a decent pay site, but there definitely could be improvements.

"I love this panel!"
Monday, April 21, 2014 by Alex

I have no idea why this panel isn't rated higher. I just signed up recently, and I already have almost made $50! They send tons of surveys to my email each day, and although I don't qualify for all of them, I usually get at least three a day that I can take. I highly recommend these folks!
