Great Rewards Options

In order to request a reward, you must have a minimum of 550 LifePoints ($5) in your account. Once you've reached this balance, you can spend your LifePoints on three main reward options: gift cards, PayPal payments and donations. Note that rewards options may vary between countries.

  • e-Gift cards - With just 550 points, you can request a $5 e-gift card from Amazon, Starbucks, Best Buy, Google Play, Apple Store, Marks & Spencer, Love2Shop, ebay, to gas stations, and more
  • PayPal payments - With 1200 points in your account, request a $10 PayPal payment.
  • Donations - Donate to a great charity with as little as $1 (110 points). Charities include: Red Cross, Special Olympics, Eco Matcher

All rewards are issued within 10 days of request. If requesting a PayPal payment, be sure your PayPal email address is the same as the e-mail address you used to sign up with Lifepoints.

Points Value: 550 Lifepoints = $5.00. Therefore, 10 points = $0.09

Take Surveys, Earn Points, Get Rewarded

As a LifePoints member, you can contribute your views and opinions by completing online surveys covering various aspects of your daily life. Other activities such as mini-polls, product testing and other types of data collection are also opportunities to earn LPs (LifePoints) to receive exceptional rewards including money and free gift cards.

Survey invitations are sent out by email and can be taken any time during the survey period. Members don’t need any special skills to complete the activities within LifePoints consumer panel. If you can contribute your thoughts and fill out the online survey, then you’re ready to go!

Survey Lengths

Survey lengths vary, however most surveys will take between 10-15 minutes to complete. Compensation awarded for every survey varies, and depends on its length, as well as the client's urgency for survey takers to complete it. The more urgent the assignment, the more points it will offer.

Receiving More Surveys

To ensure you're being invited to the maximum number of surveys, ensure your personal information on file is up to date. Do this by filling out the profile questions available in your account (which will earn you an extra 10 points!). This will help match you to the best possible surveys and will increase the number of market research studies that are most relevant to you and your lifestyle.

Tip! Be sure to add to your list of trusted senders, address book or contact list so that survey invites make it to your inbox.

Earn Points for Disqualifications

If you start a survey but don’t get to finish it, LifePoints will reward you with a small number of points as recognition for your time and effort. Point amounts may be 2 or 3 points at a time and can help you reach a cash out sooner. You may earn up to 10 extra LifePoints a day this way, which means you can redeem your earnings for rewards sooner!

This Site Is Toxic!! Stay Away!

September 24, 2022 by Carolyn from United States

It seems the only way to get through to this awful survey (questionable) site, is to write these reviews. There apparently is not a human being, in the HR department, only a robot. I see that many, many loyal survey takers have been stung, by them, & get the same form letter, over & over. I would think that their clients would like to know how they are treating survey takers. MAYBE THEY COULD PAY LIFEPOINTS LESS OF A FEE, IF THEY KNEW THAT THEY WEREN'T ACTUALLY PAYING THEIR SURVEY TAKERS. Interesting thought. For now, I encourage victims to keep posting reviews, & also review Lifepoints at the Better Business Bureau site. I just want to be paid for the hours I spent, taking surveys, thinking I would be rewarded for doing something worthwhile. It turned out, instead, to be worthless, & wasteful.

Avoid this website

September 10, 2022 by Daniel from Australia

As someone who used LifePoints for several years I never had any problems until a week ago when I decided to redeem $40, a few days afterwards I wasn’t able to log in anymore. I sent them a message to find out what is going on.

To my surprise I received an email back saying that there was a technical issue with my vouchers and they had to refund my points.

Also in that email they stated they did a review of my account and said I had violated there terms and conditions.

I’ve always given honest answers in the surveys I’ve done so was extremely confused, I send them a message through their contact us part.

I received an automated reply 20 minutes later to say that my problem had been escalated for review (amazing how quickly they were able to review it). Where they then stated that I had violated their terms and conditions.

It further stated

1. My account has been closed
2i lost all my points (nearly $50 worth)
3. They refuse to provide any proof or evidence of what I’m alleged to have done wrong.
4. They usually side with members (never did in my case) but there was overwhelming evidence against me 🙄
5. My account is terminated and to have a great day.

I then decided to look up reviews of LifePoints to discover all these other people with the same issues as of late. In these messages I saw LifePoints replied and said to contact them and raise a tickeT for investigation. So I thought I’ll do that and see what happens.

I received a response within an hour again (such quick responses) with the EXACT SAME response word for word that I received earlier that day.

So your complaints are not even investigated or taken seriously. You get auto responses with the same text. I’m looking forward to see LifePoints auto response to this review to say to contact them with all my info so they investigate it.

Then I can get the same automated response for a 3rd time 😂

So in summary sure they are ok to use for a little while but after awhile they just randomly terminate your account strip you of all your points and never investigate just give you automated responses. If this is something that appeals to you then sure go ahead and use them.

Account Suspended & Points Cancelled

September 7, 2022 by Marie from Canada

How can a company act in this manner? I got the same termination with no explanation that so many others have detailed in their reviews. - cut & paste reply to my query and then no response to follow up emails. Bad enough that they terminate without giving reason but to deny points that were legitimately earned is criminal. The amount of points I had was minimal (maybe $25 worth) but they ruin their reputation over this insignificant amount Don't waste your valuable time with this nasty outfit.

Terminated membership but they refuse to say what I did wrong

August 6, 2022 by Hideki from United States

Like many others who have commented here, LifePoints has recently all of a sudden terminated my membership and taken away my points. They said I had violated their Ts and Cs, which I could not fathom how.. Here is a very succinct summary of the dialogue that transpired:

LifePoints: "You did wrong by our terms. Your membership is sacked. We took your points."
Me: "Okay, so what did I do wrong?"
LifePoints: "We can't tell you that. It's confidential."

Someone is terminating you for cause, and yet that someone cannot tell you what that cause is. Right. I happen to be a retired legal professional, and under the laws of just about all of the states in the U.S., you cannot assert breach this way and expect to win. But LifePoints did it anyway, knowing that no one would take them to court.

My hunch from my own experience and what I see in other people's reviews is that LifePoints routinely terminates and sacks people's earned points in order to balance the book, so to speak. By arbitrarily and capriciously terminating memberships together with points, they can sweep out the liabilities column of their book with a broad brush and a minimum pushbacks from the affected members. So they do this regularly for accounting purposes, regardless of the pain it causes and a bad PR. That's my guess.

To make the story short, do not trust LifePoints. It is not worth my time to fight these guys so I am glad to be rid of them, but it is much more worthwhile if you are not yet on LifePoints to stay away from them in the first place. LifePoints is not trustworthy. Don't be the next one to become victimized by them..
