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.
Global Test Market is not so good! I ended up with 595 points within my first year. You need 1500 to recieve any kind of reward. They sent out enough surveys but only give you a few (35 to 60) points per survey, and some could be quite long. I do not recommend Global Test Market. I ended up unsubscribing, definately a thumbs down!! From Maryanne in Canada.
I've wasted 1 year of my life (2012) in order to complete the 1,000 marketpoints and when it was time to pay they literally disappeared. I've wasted another year of my life (2013) fighting over my paycheck which never arrived and 1 year after arguing with them, sending them numerous emails, they told me last week that the "1st check" was "cashed" and there is nothing to do. But they conveniently say that after 1 year, even though I have emails from each month stating that my check never arrived, that I was worried about it and they replied every time that they were sorry of the inconveniences and they were going to send a new check. Supposedly I was supposed to be sent the same check 5 times, but they said that there is "no record" of those conversations, like I imagined it all this time, so because of their "company policies" and because the ONLY CHECK they sent it was "cashed", they can't send me a new one nor give me back the points. Overall, it does not pay! I recommend you to not do business with them. Don't waste your time nor patience with this panel.
Surveys are always interesting and worthwhile to complete. They reply promptly on queries
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.
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
