Let your voice be heard and earn cash!

BuzzBack market research has been operating since April 2000 and has a suite of web based tools used to get the opinions of consumers. This panel influences hundreds of brands worldwide with their innovative approaches to research. You will not always be filling out surveys either. Sometimes you will be asked to test a product or brand and be able to keep the product as well.

Variety of rewards offered

BuzzBack offers a diverse selection of reward options to show appreciation for your time! Rewards include Amazon gift cards, retail electronic vouchers, or cash paid via PayPal. You can also take advantage of regular sweepstakes as a member of the panel where you can earn even more money, or donate your earning to charity. User profiles with BuzzBack contain an “Account Snapshot" to show survey takers the amount of rewards they have earned in real time (the rewards may take a few days or about a week to show in a users account after each survey is completed).

Online survey details

BuzzBack knows your time is valuable, so they aim to keep most surveys between 15-20 minutes long. Survey lengths can be longer in some cases, but are rewarded accordingly to the time spent. Many surveys are valued at around $5 each, and a minimum of $15 is required to request earnings. Redemption of full rewards takes 3-4 weeks. The best thing is that BuzzBack is not based on points, and rather focuses on offering a dollar value for the surveys you fill out.

Simple 3 step joining process

  • Step 1: Fill out the registration page, a basic information questionnaire that takes only minutes to complete
  • Step 2: BuzzBack requires you to answer a few upfront questions to see if you qualify for particular sessions, these will be sent by e-mail
  • Step 3: When you qualify for a study, you will be taken into a BuzzBack online survey session where you can share their valuable thoughts about influential brands while earning great rewards!

Eligibility: this panel is open to residents of the United States and international members of all countries. Open to all who are 18+.

Bummer Back

September 29, 2017 by Elizabeth from United States

Way thru the surveys. It would say. Not eligible. Lost money/credits after site made updates. Takes FOREVER for maybe someone to contact you. I worked too hard for BuzzBack..for 2 dollars. Not worth it for me! And BuzzBack never credited my account..bye BuzzBack...

I just saw that BuzzBack kept my Rewards... No email on why... Nothing. I received an email welcoming me to the new site. I go on and decide to end my time with them, being that every time I try to do a survey, it'll not what they want and/or the time to complete the survey has passed. I check my profile/rewards, and I have nothing! All gone!!! What a rip-off!! But for the record I didn't have a large amount. It's just the point. :~(

Wasted my time and I wish I can take it back

A while back Buzzback notified me they were changing their website. I had $6.00 in my account at that time, and I believe you need $15 to cashout. I had to change my password too. As it turned out, their new URL was the same as another panel I'm a member of, and it screwed up my log-in information for that survey panel. Since then I have not been able to log into Buzzback, and my $6.00 is gone. However, they are still sending me surveys to do--which I ignore. Stay away from Buzzback!
