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+

After accumulating your points and doing surveys with them, you are unable to claim your cash. They say that they believe that there was fraudulent activity and your account has been terminated. See complaints for similar problems

After 3 years as a member - putting up with some surveys that die in the middle I still managed to accumulate over $500 in points. Stupid me for saving them for this Christmas instead of cashing them in. Request a check in August 07. Suppossed to take 1 - 4 weeks. Get an apology email in saying checks delayed. Wait another 4 weeks - ask for status - they say my account is fraudlent. this after sending me an email in October asking me why I haven't filled out surveys lately! They don't want to pay!

globaltestmarket, has worked for me

September 17, 2010 by Rena from United States

I don't remember how long I have been a member, but it has probably been 2 years. At first I was skeptical, it took awhile before I even decided to cash out. I hadn't been doing all the surveys regularly. I misunderstood, and thought I was getting a check for 10 dollars. Boy was I suprised it was for 50. I started doing every survey, and in a few months I was had enough for another check. Both times, I am pretty sure it was less than 6 weeks. So I got a check twice this year. Now of course the surveys are fewer. I was hoping to have another check before Christmas, but they have cut the amount of surveys down.

I haven't had any problems with this site at all. I even won $100 in their monthly sweepstakes, and I recvd' the check only 3 days after they sent me the notification email that I had won. I recommend this one.

Easy to earn

I have been a member for the past 14 months. I cashed out 6 times so far and received each payment. I only have one account so I do not run into the issue of being banned.

As a member of 14+ survey panels GTM is in the top 3 easy.
