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 isn't bad i think why they don't have a higher ranking here is because you can get into a survey and it kicks back and say you don't Qualify for it and yeah at first it seems like it takes a while to Qualify for them they just want to do a good job for the people they work for i guess i for one don't have a problem with that. i cashed out the next day i got Amazon E-gift card i ordered about a week later i got the 2 $20 dollar cashouts in my paypal account i requested. It was all with-in the time frame they had in the cash out instructions this one is on the level and a a+ from me to them for being quick and on the level with me and everyone on the matters of cashouts. Thank you Global Test Market.
EDIT: Gave a lower rating because now I can't log in and they're not helping in the least. They're still replying painfully slowly and won't respond to half of my messages at all.
Despite the title of my review, I'm basing my rating on one huge thing; their customer service. The customer service in their rewards zone is EXCELLENT; but the main customer service is horrendous. If you have several questions, they'll be bound to only answer one of them and you'll keep having to message them to be answered. They give confusing answers and take days to reply to simple questions. I had a problem with double accounts and they let me keep my old one while thankfully (I hope) letting me keep my order. Since they've done that though, the site has been glitching like crazy. It says I have over 1000 points yet customer service says I only have 550. Now any survey I do, I get no points credited to my account. I can't even contact their reward zone customer service to see if I'm still getting my cash out for sure because there's an error everytime I try to send a message, and normal customer service won't respond. After I get my money, I believe I'm done with this site. If I get my money, I'll give a higher rating for if they do actually at least pay you.
ive been trying to access my account for months ..i cant log in with the password and account information...i know its mine they even sent it to me saying its mine but when i enter it it says invalid email password combination..i keep telling them this and they do nothing..i have over 1600 points and cant cash them in im so sick of it ..im done doing surveys they are a rip off u do the surveys them cant cash out...what good is that..my advise to anyone dont waste your time...customer service stinks ive had it
They offer a lot of surveys every week. You get both points and sweepstakes entries for completing surveys, most of which give 30 to 45 points.
The payout threshold is pretty low, too. 243 points for a $10.00 PayPal payment or 485 points for a $20.00 payment. It's a minimum 1000 points to redeem any prize, though.
I had been a member of GTM since 2008 and had 37000 points and over 7000 sweepstakes entries in that time. Then I received this response as to why I could no longer log in to my account:
Dear Panel Member,
According to our records, your account was not in compliance with the User Agreement, notably Section 6 – Good-Faith Participation:
You agree to participate in good faith and to the best of your ability in any market research activities in connection with the Service. You will not provide false or misleading data, including without limitation, survey responses that are inconsistent with prior responses or statistically improbable.
GlobalTestMarket reserves the right to terminate any account suspected of User Agreement violations and further forfeit all awards earned from said account.
Well I have been filling out surveys here for 7 years and now all of a sudden it's not in "good faith"?! They used to be good and give decent rewards but 30 points for 25 minutes or 10 sweepstakes entries.....nah don't bother with them.
Update: After sending them a sternly written email my account was reinstated as a "one time courtesy". Luckily I have cashed out my $50 as of today. Seriously though accusing you of "fraud" after being a panel member for 7 years is a stretch too far for my liking.
