Types of Surveys Offered
Global Test Market offers online surveys that help companies develop new products and services. For every successful survey completed, members are awarded points. Survey lengths vary, but are typically between 10 - 20 minutes. 5 points = approximately $0.05.
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.
Each survey that you complete with Global Test Market rewards you with 'LifePoints'. 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 collected once you have accumulated 4,000 LifePoints (equal to $35) in your account.
Option to Give Back
In addition to the great selection of rewards, Global Test Market gives you the option to give back to your community! Unicef charity donations can be redeemed with collected LifePoints.
Reward Processing Time
Rewards usually take about 4-6 weeks to arrive if you are in the United States and 6-8 weeks for international panel members.
Eligibility: Residents worldwide, age 14+
The points has been raised on rewards and redemption. It has been very difficult to get points from this site. It doesn't benefit others who want to get rewarded. There are other survey sites that don't have a ridiculous redemption value to redeem. I am kind of wondering to leave them. I feel this site will not last long if they don't cater to certain age requirements.
This company used to be my favorite and ever since the new point system, I would never recommend this site. One used to get paid 1 dollar to 1.75$ per 15 minute survey, but that has dropped down to about .30 cents per survey. Unless you are poor and desperate, don't waste your time with this website, unless they bring back the old system.
Once one of the most worthwhile surveys sites, this place has cratered recently. In addition to the more frequent "header...error" messages upon survey completion, as documented elsewhere on here, they have drastically devalued their points without increasing the number paid for completions.
Long ago, a point was worth 5 cents; the then-common 35 point survey paid $1.75. Over time, the point became devalued to .042 cents, the average survey down to 30 points; the average survey now paying $1.26.
Recently with the switch to "life points", the point is now worth only .0083 cents; a thirty point survey currently paying just a quarter, assuming you don't get the error message upon completion, then it pays nothing.
Their new points system requires 5x the points to redeem for a $50 check (1200 points is now 6000 points required). But their survey rewards are lower than ever. I was offered a whopping 10 "new" points for a survey...equates to TWO 92) points under the old system. Unreal. At that rate it would take me a decade to earn the 6000 points needed for a $50 Paypal payment. AND, they now charge you an extra $10 "fee" to cash out your points. Dont waste your time. .
I've been with this panel for I think about 5 months now... I cashed out for a $50 e-gift card last month or so with no problem, I recently saved up over $25 worth of points... I wanted to push it up to $50 before cashing out again, which I was getting close to... but they recently updated their website to a new point system... I tried logging in for the first time since their update and I just can't get in. Maybe it's a temporary glitch, I sent them a message so we'll see what happens, but also noticed I hadn't gotten any emails from them in about 5 days. I requested a password reminder which I got from them and it was the correct password I had been entering but yet I still can't get in. So I'm hoping they didn't do something to either boot me or lock me out like others have said on here cause that's like $25 worth of points they're taking from me if they do, very disappointing. I'll note that recently I had a similar problem with them, their site was so laggy that I couldn't even reach the login screen for a few days but that issue seems to have been fixed. Will update if anything changes. *Update* They emailed me back saying my account was deactivated because I had marked their emails as spam (how the heck would they even know that in the first place?), that's really dumb because I was getting way too many emails from them on a daily basis and it was only cluttering my inbox, I don't need those emails cause I visit the panel on my own anyways, they claimed that they reactivated my account but I still can't login... I messaged them back so we'll see what happens now. Needless to say this is frustrating.
