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

Survey Taking Experience

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 @LifePointsPanel.com 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!

slow, and with a costly flaw

March 10, 2019 by Frank from United States

The former Global Test Market site still offers decent survey opportunities. However, each page loads very slowly; even when you are waiting to return to the survey menu. And you could spend a half hour doing this without getting a single survey. Other times, you can rack up a few, so it's worth it.

One warning - if you have been on the site for a while (half hour?), your log-in times out, and you lose the points for whatever survey you are working on. I need to remember to log off earlier. Still one of the stalwarts, though.

TERRIBLE

March 10, 2019 by Kathy from United States

Before LifePoints I was a member of MYSURVEY. MySurvey was pretty predictable with few problems and responds to questions were fairly prompt and written by a real person. LifePoints took over and I can't access a1000point survey I was two days away from finishing. I've been emailing them for 9 days now- with no personal or helpful response. I'm not sure they employ anyone as all responses I've received are generic and probably computer generated. I can't believe it's 9 days of multiple emails and no one cares. The survey will close soon, and I will likely lose the 1000 points I was working hard to earn for the month of February. I would not recommend this survey site as there is no viable way to contact them that elicits any response other than what I've mentioned. They've also changes the page so it's all snippets, motivational quotes, and other muck that takes away from the survey platform. It's like facebook with surveys. NOT my cup of tea- very distracting. They will also want you to enable pop up blockers and accept cookies. I'm disgusted, angry and frustrated. If I could give negative stars I would. Spend your spare time doing something else- these guys will not be there for you- ever.

Slow but making progress.

March 9, 2019 by Toni from United States

So far this site is kind of a mess. Really slow to load, and various technical issues. Hopefully they will work out the bugs soon. I see some hope here, as they combined two survey sites...My Surveys, which was sort of OK, and Global Test Market, which was getting old and tired. The main problem for me is the fact that sessions time out so quickly that one seems to be logging in after every survey taken. Since it takes 20-30 seconds for each log in, this is both time-consuming and annoying! I'll give it a couple of months, then come back and re-review, if it is warranted.
Well, it didn't take a couple of months. Apparently, panelist comments, of the critical variety are Verboten. I just received notification that my account has been cancelled, and any points remaining in my account forfeited. This is a whole lot like protesting in a dictatorship.

Talk not worth the walk

March 8, 2019 by fritz from South Africa

Started as globalsurveyresearch which despite of old look and feel presented lots of survey opportunities on a daily basis.Since lifepoints crawled in less surveys and apps bobbed out points calculated wrong. The worst is after endless conversations with lifepoints on 9137 points i redeemed for cash with paypal (expected to be rewarded $50 per 1000 points) i was awarded a mere $5 for days spending on surveys. !! After querieng my reward lifepoints quoted a transaction-id which never existed at Paypal (paypal confirmed). Since then the silence has been deafening at lifepoints ....No response .My advice STAY AWAY . I have all the proof and feel prospective honest surveyers must stay away from these con artists. (Unless you want to earn $5 for many hours spent on surveys!!!)

Major Down Grade

March 7, 2019 by Dennis from United States

They just down graded the site. They have new features like hanging up when you complete a survey and not rewarding you. That is a pretty lame and old way to cheat people. Avoid this site like the plague.
