The Opportunity to be Heard
The Knowledge Panel, now part of GfK Custom Research North America was created in 1999. The Knowledge Panel allows you to share your opinions and be heard!
Invitation Only Panel
This is an invitation only panel that requires a code to join. GfK randomly selects a few households within the United States to receive an invitation in the mail. Every member, 13 years or older, who is living at the chosen household is welcome to join the Knowledge Panel.
Receive $10 for an Introductory Survey
As a special thank you, the Knowledge Panel will send a one-time $10 reward to every household member who joins and takes the introductory survey.
Take Part in Important Research!
Once you are a registered member, you will be asked to share your opinions, ideas and experiences on subjects like healthcare and issues affecting the country. You will be invited to take part in surveys for TV networks, international companies and national polls. Survey sessions usually take 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
Take Surveys and Earn Cash
To show appreciation for the surveys you have completed, you will be credited with 1,000 points for each survey session, which translates to $1. Redeem points for prizes such as magazine subscriptions, coupons or gift cards. You can also save up for a $25 cash check, or try your luck with using your points to win sweepstakes. There are many prize options to explore in the customized online marketplace!
No Internet Access? No Problem!
If you do not have internet access within your home the Knowledge Panel will provide you with a computer and give you free dial-up internet access for members. This is done to ensure all demographics are represented equally.
The Knowledge Panel focuses on many demographics to properly represent the research being accumulated. These demographics include, but are not limited to: Families, Hispanics, teens, young adults, baby boomers and working adults. The Knowledge Panel website is available in translated Spanish for ease of access.
Eligibility: Invitation only, restricted to United States households. Must be 13+ to join. Household members under 18 must get parental or guardian permission before joining.
I was a member of KP for many years. Over time the surveys became more time consuming making the earnings per hour less and less. Also the contest known as the "Prize Wheel" is misleading in my opinion. It is an additional reward for special surveys and the wheel appears to have 4 winning slots out of 16. Not bad odds. The truth is in 8 years I never won nor have other members I have talked to or seen on the web. The odds are actually more in the thousand to one range-which is not made clear- so not much of a reward; Kind of like offering the kid who cuts your grass extra money to also cut your neighbors by letting him guess what card you will pull out of a deck of cards after he's done. They also encourage you to play again after you lose. Don't.
You must do 25 surveys or thereabouts to get any cash ( $25 checks only) and the under $25 gifts are very minimal. All in all not a bad company just misleading and disappointing sometimes if you are not paying attention.
Knowledge Panel Surveys are brief, interesting and points are added within an hour. 1000 points a survey adds up to $1. You can cash out at $10, if you want, and receive a check in the mail within a few weeks. They say 4 to 6 weeks. I don't receive many surveys, just know that I can depend on this one to pay and add my points without any problems.
I have been a member since 2013 (If I remember correctly) This is a great site! I love the surveys! and all our family members can join as well! I'm so thankful to knowledgepanel! thank you so much guys! I only wish that you guys still offered gift cards! why don't you offer gift cards anymore? but again, I love this site..Thank you!
I received my first check for $50 after doing surveys for a few months. I chose to receive cash after I made the mistake the first time to receive coupons. You can choose many different forms of reimbursement, but to me, cash is more rewarding. The amount of surveys requested is right for me 2-6 per month.
Definitely recommend Knowledge Panel to anyone who fills out surveys regularly. Usually they use a point system but these points can be utilized as like 1000 points equals a dollar. And your minimum payout is like $25 and usually it can happen in about a week depending on how many surveys you get sent within the week! I've already gotten paid out about $25 a month on average so it's awesome!
