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.
They were a decent panel at one time, but have declined in the past year.
If you do surveys your account is not always credited with them.
If you complain, your account sometimes becomes mysteriously inaccessible.
My advice would be to avoid these shysters like the plague. Very untrustworthy indeed.
Always pay fast (5-7 days paypal)
Plenty of surveys (5-7 daily at least)
Customer service needs improvement. Answers 2 out of 3 inquiries on average, however, always answers extremely important inquiries so that's good.
Bottom line, one of my favorites but a few minor faults.
UPDATE 4/13/15: GTM diluted points again by 4%, paypal now requires 240 points per $10 versus 230. This coming on the back of dilution a year or two ago of 10%.
Overall, dropped GTM half a point rating, and may discontinue survey taking at some point due to the constant dilution.
I was a member for around 2 weeks and managed to get about 300 points. 1000 points can be redeemed for a £10 paypal transaction or giftcard. Now when I try to log in it doesnt recognise my username or password. I seem to have been locked out of my account. What a waste of time.
I've been doing around 2 survey a week for that past 8 weeks and just collected 1000 points which I redeemed for paypal money and Starbucks vouchers. Sometimes you get screened out of surveys which is annoying but it's not too difficult to collect points. Received my vouchers fairly quickly after redemption.
This is a time wasting company with their 'many surveys available' that are not really targeted to your profile, hence a huge waste of clicking time, which together with their very high threshold makes it very difficult to reach redemption.
Worse is their awful dismissive customer service, and even if they have made some changes to their website last year or so (and survey finally have a more regular/reliable survey ref.), they still are the same, bad customer service, misleading survey timing, and a very time consuming clicking activity to find/complete a survey for my like.
Besides, why has to be so difficult to find out their reward options before joining?? I redeemed and ditched. No worth my time.
