These surveys do not pay much and you may be banned for "not giving the right answers." When you do surveys, you answer questions and there is no tight or wrong reply. Mypoints will not always give credit. Good luck if you dare deal with these thieves. My advice is to try another survey company!!!!!!!!! Too many times I was not able to redeem points and I had to contact someone to get what I earned. STAY AWAY cuz they make a lot from your answering questions on their surveys.

Support NEVER RESPONDS__ Verification code needed to redeem reward

December 13, 2020 by Jackie from United States

NOT everyone has a mobile phone to receive a verification code. In reference to taking surveys. Often, you complete a survey,so they get your information, but then say you didn't qualify or met quota and only give you 5 pts. The bot for help is USELESS. All it does is give articles related to key words in your question that are useless to the question asked. When you do get a chat, you are not able to complete, due to getting knocked off. This is the 1st time they are asking for a verification code; otherwise, you would just click what you want to redeem for your reward and in an instant it would be in your email, which is one of the reasons I continue with them. Now, the page comes up saying to verify "with ONE of the following methods," and the ONLY method is a text message to a mobile phone. NOT EVERY ONE HAS A MOBILE PHONE. Written support submission has NEVER got a response, and now needed more than ever to receive my reward. I have been tolerant because if you attempt, they give you a minimal 5 pts for 5 surveys, which is almost better than nothing., and always received your reward redemption within seconds. BUT, when support never responds, and now wanting my duly earned reward, I am more than disgusted! I'm being kind with 2-stars!

Worst possible survey website

December 7, 2020 by Mark from United States

Very few opportunities to earn any points. Basically you have surveys, watching videos for minimal points, and cash back shopping. Took me almost four days to get enough points for a 1 dollar reward. They never sent the gift card when I redeemed the points. Stay away.

Overall good survey site

December 3, 2020 by Margaret from United States

I have been doing surveys on MyPoints and have been very pleased with the amount of rewards I have gotten. Also, the selection of rewards are really good.

Deactivated my account and ignored my tickets

November 28, 2020 by Iyanna from United States

I had an account for a week and did high payout offers so I had a tleast $70 worth of points already, then they deactivated without any word. When I put in a ticket, they responded saying its standard procedure and need an ID for verification. I replied immediately with my ID. A week went by with no response. They usually reply within 2 days. I put in a ticket again, another week went by, no response. Third week, I messaged on Facebook. None have been responded to. So I not only lost like $15 I put into the offers but everything I earned and had pending. Pretty sure they took it then purposely ignored me.
