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!

Faulty Advertising

June 2, 2019 by Amanda from Canada

Two half decent survey sites merged to make one terrible site. Ever since Lifepoints came into existence, they have posted one value for a survey but upon completion you only receive half the amount, ie you click on a survey that says 90 points, you complete it and it gives your 45 points. Or you finish a survey and it tells you you've screened out and you only get 2 points. And so many of their surveys are super long so half way through taking one, the lifepoints session times out and you're left with nothing.

But that's not why I'm on here leaving my beef. I have routinely done month long purchasing diaries on many survey sites before so I know they are always the same platform and I know what's expected of me so I know when I've completed it. I did one for lifepoints, email invitation said it was worth 1270 points to track my purchases for a whole month, that's not a lot of points for a month's worth of effort but I did it anyways. Completed the month, no points. Put an IT ticket in, it's been over a month and still no closure with them. Do not waste your time.

profiling

May 31, 2019 by Joe from United States

This site needs to be taken down. They accused me of lying and not answering surveys honestly and just trying to add up points. I also believe they are profiling me because of my age. They cancelled my account and swept all my accumulated points to the curb. They need to be held accountable.

A complete waste of time

May 31, 2019 by Rachel from United Kingdom

I was with GTM for years, they used to be quite good until the points per survey were reduced, but got so fed up with them & the slow website I unsubscribed last year, but stayed with MySurvey. Now with the merger I'm getting GTM surveys again, I get so many survey invites a day it's getting like spam, but I'm not eligible for so many.
'Help' desk useless. 10th March I was kicked out of a survey at 75% completed, I complained, they finally responded 26 April to say they were sorry I was having trouble logging in! I complained again & got an answer today saying they can't help without the survey number. Another survey got stuck at 69%, no matter what I entered my answers wouldn't take, I complained but that was never resolved.
As soon as I reached £5 I cashed out, & haven't taken any more surveys while I was waiting for the 'kicked out of the survey' problem to be resolved, but it clearly won't be, so I've now unsubscribed (once I could log in, the new site is as slow as the old) as the few surveys I can take I can't finish.

DON'T TRUST THIS SITE!!

May 30, 2019 by Linda from United States

This site should REALLY be forced to close down! To start, i qualified for and completed many surveys and got credit for all of them BUT i tried to cash out twice and BOTH TIMES NOTHING HAPPENED AT ALL AND I NEVER GOT MY MONEY EITHER TIME! So, BOTH times i sent them a very polite message letting them know their site wouldn't let me cash out and if they could please help me. They NEVER RESPONDED TO EITHER EMAIL and shortly after I sent the second email, they cancelled my account and has yet to respond to my third email in which i asked them why they cancelled my account and never paid me. Just took my points and kicked me to the curb!! DO NOT TRUST THIS SITE OR U WILL BE SORRY! BEWARE AND DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME with them!!!!!!!!!!!!
