Beginning early 2019, Lightspeed shut down MySurvey and GlobalTestMarket in most countries, and merged those members into LifePoints. The LifePoints app has been discontinued.

LifePoints is a community of like-minded people who want to share their views and opinions to influence future decisions made by the big brands we know and see every day.

It’s also the place to go for those who want to collect rewards for living their lives. Every time you go shopping, to the movies, or simply enjoy a new local service, you can collect LifePoints by sharing your views and opinions about these products, services and experiences.

Payment and Rewards

Join to Get Free Points

New members of LifePoints will enjoy 10 free points automatically credited to their accounts.

Great Rewards Options

In order to request a reward, you must have a minimum of 5,500 LifePoints ($5) in your account. Once you've reached this balance, you can spend your LifePoints on two main reward options: gift cards and PayPal payments (note that rewards may vary across countries).

The gift e-cards offered are available to major retailers such as eBay, Amazon, Starbucks, and more. Feeling generous? No problem. You may also donate your LifePoints to charities such as Unicef.

Survey Taking Experience

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 collect LifePoints and spend them on exceptional rewards.

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. If you can contribute your thoughts and fill out the online survey, then you’re ready to go!

Survey Lengths and Point Amounts

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

Points for Disqualifications

If you start a survey but don’t get to finish it, LifePoints rewards you with a small number of points as recognition for your efforts. Points amounts may be 2 or 3 points at a time, but does help reach cashout levels sooner. You may earn up to 10 extra LifePoints a day this way, which means you get to spend your LifePoints sooner!

It's best survey site

Not Worth Your Time

December 2, 2019 by Phoenix from United States

I belonged to both MySurvey & GlobalTestMarket for many years. It's been a long time since either of them was a good panel, but now that they've combined as LifePoints, it's a complete waste of time.

You will receive dozens of survey invites a week. Almost all of them will pay very poorly. Those with a decent incentive will take 20-30 minutes to complete, & then tell you that you didn't qualify. In fact almost any survey you attempt will disqualify you with no rewards, often after gathering a lot of personal information. Customer service is also low quality. Stay away from this one.

LifePoints responded to this review on December 10, 2019

Hi Phoenix,

We are sorry you've been screened out of some surveys while in due course.

Some surveys require only a limited number of responses per category, for example, from a region or age group. Sometimes the number of participants needed for a certain survey is reached very quickly and we are forced to close the survey as soon the quota is reached.

However, we are happy to inform you that our developers have now addressed and solved several issues on our platform.

If you open a new ticket with our Help Center here - https://lifepoints.zendesk.com/hc/en-gb/requests/new - while quoting 'SITEREVIEW', we can ensure that your ticket will be escalated with our customer service team.

We hope to see you back soon on Lifepoints.

Best Regards,
Ben

This website is pathetic

November 28, 2019 by Bulelwa from South Africa

I'm very disappointed and angry about the way this site treats us survey takers. It takes an effort to log into a website with the hope of answering surveys and this website messes with people. It's really pathetic that I have to log on every after second. They send me surveys after 6 months. I log in to answer the surveys, they say I've taken them already? On top of that I have to log on every after second while I'm on their page? It's really pathetic. I wish Globaltest market could reconsider their choice to hand us over to Life Points because Globaltest market was fantastic.
