Beginning early 2019, Lightspeed shut down GlobalTestMarket in some countries, and merged those members into LifePoints. As of June, 2019, GlobalTestMarket panels and members worldwide were fully integrated into LifePoints.

Founded in 1999, Global Test Market is an online survey panel owned by Lightspeed Research, a Kantar groups company. Global Test Market is one of the world’s leading providers of market research and serves clients in more than 60 countries worldwide.

They rewarded their panelists more than $30 million+ USD in 2016 alone! As a panelist, you can earn points for completing surveys that can be redeemed for reward items from over 200 partners, redeem your points for cash via PayPal, or donate your points to charity.

Unfortunately, GlobalTestMarket is no longer operational. Click the button to discover survey panels that are running and are actively looking for new members!

Payment and Rewards

Registration Process

Registering is easy, simple and free. Click the registration link where you will be asked simple questions about you and your household. The results are used to determine which surveys you are a good fit for.

Rewards Information

Each survey takes on average 15 minutes to complete and reward amounts depend on the survey length and urgency.

If you are screened out of surveys, you may be entered into a quarterly sweepstakes competition. For each sweepstakes entry you earn, you will be automatically entered into the drawing and if you are a winner, you will be notified via email. Remember to respond before the deadline provided to claim your prize.


For each survey completed, you will receive LifePoints, which you can accumulate to redeem cash and prizes. Each email invitation will alert you to how many LifePoints you will receive for taking the survey. LifePoints expire 3 years after being awarded the points, or after 12 months if there is no activity on the account.

On April 17, 2017, MarketPoints were discontinued and replaced by these new 'LifePoints' at a 1 for 5 conversion rate. Collected points can be redeemed for many different reward options, which may vary, depending on your country of residence. Rewards can be redeemed once you have accumulated 1,100 LifePoints ($10) in your account. Note that if you have a friend that was grandfathered in from the old Points program, they will be offered slightly different points than those who joined GlobalTestMarket after April 2017.

Community Features

Types of Surveys Offered

Many of GlobalTestMarket’s surveys ask your opinion on movies, restaurant, automobiles, consumer products, current events, and a variety of other interesting and fun topics. You can also download the LifePoints app onto your phone so you can take surveys on your mobile.

Points Expectations

You can expect to earn between 35-250 LifePoints based on the level of complexity or urgency of the survey. Even if you do not qualify for the survey, you may still receive 5 LifePoints..

Option to Give Back

In addition to the great selection of rewards, Global Test Market gives you the option to give back to your community! Unicef charity donations can be redeemed with collected LifePoints.

Refer Your Friends!

You can refer your friends by entering their email when you are signed into your account. If they fill out at least 2 surveys, you also earn points.

Rewards Processing Time

Rewards usually take about 4-6 weeks to arrive if you are in the United States and 6-8 weeks for international panel members.

Eligibility: Residents worldwide, age 14+

From one of the best to the worst

May 23, 2019 by Ned from United States

I remember when I started to do GTM I was making good money back in the days. I would probably make $50 bucks a month sometimes close to $100. I probably made in my peek from $600 to $1200 an year. It was good times. Then Lifepoints happened. Ever since they took control they redid the point system just to assume you were making more no way it was to screw you up. I think my rewards at that time i was lucky if I was making $50 every 3 months it got super slow. Not only that the survey were super long and the points were so little.

Back when you were making for maybe a 30 minute survey a dollar or 2 that same exact 30 minute survey was worth .20 cents to a quarter. Some were insane that they wanted to pay you .40 cents for a whole hour. It was to much. Not only that if you were half way or almost done all of sudden it kicked you out. I was just done and I stopped doing them. I needed the cash, but I wasnt going to be slaved up by getting paid so little when their is still a few other good paying surveys. This was back 2016 I think 2017 I quit never ever looked back to them.

Good Surveys and Rewards

Was an excellent site, but went downhill and became a horrible ripoff site. Avoid like the plague.

No more surveys

May 12, 2019 by valerie from United States

LIke mysurvey I do not get any more surveys from them in regards to Lifepoints. They both merged, or whatever into lifepoints and have heard nothing since. My old passwords for those 2 sites do not work and Lifepoints does not answer any of my emails. Glad I cashed out my points on mysurvey, or I would be out of luck. Just heard from Lifepoints in regard to globaltestmaket they have no record of my even belonging to globaltestmarket. And they even had the gaul to ask if i wanted to join Lifepoints. I lost whatever points i had with them. So not doing any surveys that have to do with them

Not so good

April 24, 2019 by Edith from United States

I just did a survey for them that had two parts that I spent 2 hours on doing and was suppose to get 450 per part. At the very end after they got all my info oh the line is down and not working. If they cheat me out of my points they will probably never see me again...……why can't you be fair like so many good sites are???

is going under fast

March 5, 2019 by jan from United States

used to work reasonably well and 95% of surveys worked and rewarded points. in the last 3 months, less than 40% are working and those that do may not actually give you the points so you have to be diligent in checking. customer service no longer responds to inquiries on problems. sounds like they are shutting down. any other reviewer giving this 5 stars is outright lying. NOTE: they did shut down - they became LifePoints and I believe I was seeing the end of one panel company which was dismal. Hoping that this review is now approved.
