Panel Champ

mingle is the research panel of respondi AG that is geared towards Europe and the UK. It originated back in 2005, and has a very large community following with 300,000 current members. Join mingle and gain the chance to change how decisions are made and other business processes. You could be the influence that the business world needs!

Surveys, Questionnaires and Product Testing

At mingle there are quite a few research methods that panel members can be involved with. Online surveys that come in the form of questionnaires are common, as well as shorter surveys that are known as “opinion trend surveys”. You may also be asked to test a product from a well-known manufacturer.

Survey Details

Survey questionnaires usually range from 5 to 20 minutes to finish. Most panel members will be invited to participate in studies twice a month. However, this frequency can vary with some months having more invites and others, less.

Rewards System

Some surveys provide no incentive while others offer entries towards prize draws. Most surveys however give rewards in the form of “mingle points” as a thank you for providing your valuable opinions. The amount of points you receive is based on the amount of content/time you put into questions.

If you do not qualify for a survey you will automatically be awarded 10 mingle points. Most surveys pay out about 50 mingle points each. 1000 mingle points is the equivalent of 8 GBP.

Collect Cash, Vouchers or Donate!

Once you have collected 2000 mingle points (16 GBP) you may redeem your points for a variety of rewards within three months’ time. After 3 months, your points will expire, so be sure to act quickly!

  • Cash deposited into your bank account
  • Gift Vouchers
  • Charity Donations: Choose from a variety of well-known charities

Other Bonuses

After you register and complete your welcome survey, mingle will gift you 100 points to get you started! You can also get your friends involved in mingle, if you refer three or more new panel members, you could win an iPad for you and each of your friends!

Eligibility: 16+ and living in the UK or Europe. International banking code is required for payment purposes.

Don't ever do the surveys for this brand they ripped me off they let me do the whole survey and at the end they told me: You are not the one we need... Karma!

Few surveys, hard to qualify, some errors

April 24, 2018 by Leo from United Kingdom

Very few surveys & qualifying is even harder, over 1 year I'm almost close to redeem the lowest prize. ------- Never asked to test a product. ------- C-s replies to emails, if problems (errors, survey doesn't work etc) you may get an apology or a few token points, though the latter makes up for the 5p you don't always get when you do not qualify (as they say they do), or for other survey errors.------- However, the fact that they tell you that there is an exchange rate if you redeem by bank loses my rating stars, considering the fact that 75points survey is paid just £0.60 (not a common issue amongst points panels) and their average survey points varies from 60, 50, 40 points (rarely 75 or more) so Mingle rewards your time quite poorly.------- Their app is good only for checking your points.------- I like it for M&S and Amazon rewards.

Very few and far between surveys which are sent at about 2 monthly intervals. Odd looking site. Think I might make a payout before I die? Though maybe not!

Increasingly disappointing, but payout prompt

April 21, 2020 by Doug from United Kingdom

Like many survey companies, the number of surveys offered decreasing, number of surveys screened out of at the end, increasing, one has to wonder how honest the claim that the data entered in surveys you then get screened out of is really discarded, or conveniently retained for free?
Their payout (M&S vouchers) is nearly instant, very GOOD!

I don't have any problems with the surveys and when I finally reached 2000 points, I transferred the points to cash. That was 17/10 and it's now 13/11 and nothing. As this is the 1st time I've tried to cash out, I don't have any history to compare but nearly a month seems a very long time to wait. I tried to contact them about a week ago via their 'contact us' section on the website but haven't had any response at all. All starting to feel a bit fishy to me......
