How MySoapBox Works

MySoapBox website

Earn Points for Various Activities

After signing up with MySoapBox, you can participate in online surveys and other types of market research to earn points. The number of points you will earn depends on the type of activity you participate in. You will always be notified as to how many points the activity is worth before you begin. 1,000 points = $1 and you can expect to earn an average of between 750-1500 points ($0.75-$1.50) per activity.

Getting Notified of New Surveys

You will be e-mailed online surveys (or texted them if you prefer) as they become available, but you may also log into your account and see available assignments. Once you have accumulated 25,000 points (this drops to 5,000 points after your first redemption), you can cash your points in for various prizes. Note that MySoapBox does not offer an app.

Different Types of Studies

Participate in different types of studies with MySoapBox. The more types of studies you agree to be part of (surveys, product tests), the more you will get invited to. This will help increase your points balance, helping you reach your first cash out sooner.

Payment and Rewards

Exchange Points for Rewards

MySoapBox offers a variety of instant electronic vouchers (e-vouchers, or online gift cards) in exchange for participating in surveys. Although 25,000 points (worth $25) is required to redeem rewards, once you obtain this balance and redeem your fist reward, you can then redeem future gift vouchers in denominations as low as $5 (5,000 points).

Rewards Offered

MySoapBox rewards consist of a wide variety of prizes comprising two main reward types:

  • Online gift cards - Choose from a selection of over 100 e-gift card options. Retailers include: Amazon, Bed and Body Works, Burger King, Kohl's, iHop, Google Play, Walmart, Xbox, and dozens of others.
  • Donations to charity - Donate your points to charity the same way you would redeem them for an online gift card. Charities include: American Cancer Society, Clean Water Fund, Habitat for Humanity, National Park Foundation, and more.

Denominations for rewards vary per reward, but range from as low as $5.00 to as high as $50.00. Redemptions for electronic gift cards will be processed on average within 2-3 weeks of submission and you will receive your gift code via e-mail.

Points Value: 25,000 MySoapbox points = $25.00. Therefore, 10 points = $0.01.

Community Features

MySoapBox refer-a-friend program

Referral Program

Members of the MySoapbox survey panel can refer their friends and family living in other households in exchange for 1000 points. Simply log in to your account and click the 'Refer-a-Friend' button for your special referral code, which you can then post on social media and share with your friends. Referrals must reside in the US and be age 18+ in order to receive the 1000 point credit.

Survey Roulette

The MySoapBox Survey Roulette program is essentially a survey router which will match you to survey opportunities across various survey providers. For every survey completed through Survey Roulette, you will earn 1,000 points (the equivalent of $1).

As a MySoapBox member, you will receive periodic emails with subject lines such as, 'Participate in Survey Roulette 2.0 and increase your point balance', which will link to these special surveys. Alternatively, you can access these paid surveys through your account. You can keep completing surveys through the Roulette feature until you run out of studies available to complete.

I joined an 8 week study that was going to give me 25,000 points after the 8 weeks I contacted my soapbox and they extended the survey without informing me. It is more than 12 weeks and of course no points I think they went down hill and are robbing their members!

Takes forever

January 16, 2015 by Jill from United States

This panel started out average but it just keeps getting worse. The surveys are hard to qualify for and now that I'm close to cash out, they aren't even giving me a chance to complete a survey. I dq the second I click on the link, without any questions being asked. That has been going on for weeks. I've heard that people have cashed out on the site but I'm not sure I believe it anymore.

will take a lifetime to cashout

January 3, 2015 by cheryl from United States

I haven't qualified for ANY survey in weeks. I fell for the survey roulette thing a couple times but NEVER manage to qualify. If I ever get enough points to cash out, I'll probably have a heart attack and my heirs will never get paid anyway

Fickle Friend

September 30, 2014 by Karri from United States

Right out of the gate, I earned quite a bit of spending money with MySoapBox. It was right before last Christmas so it was a nice surprise to have that much to send to my Amazon account. Then it seemed like I was disqualified all the time. Honestly, I lost interest especially after participating in a longer-term study which had a lot of tech issues behind the scenes. Someone from MySoapBox did contacted me to help which was nice. I had other concerns about being disqualified after spending time on a survey. The good part is that if you contact tech support, they will look into it and compensate you if what you say it true. Point being, better customer service than most survey companies. I have just recently started to use this site again and have earned a little. Overall, this might be a good option depending on your demographic I guess. It's easy to use on your phone and they have a good amount of longer, higher payout opportunities. Definitely worth checking out anyways.

Seemed promising at first

September 25, 2014 by Carolyn from United States

After signing up, there were always new surveys in the 'available' tab and I qualified for almost all of them. That lasted about a week. I get a couple notification emails every day but I don't seem to qualify for anything anymore. They do award you 10 points for trying, but with the 25,000 minimum I don't see cashing out in my lifetime. However, I would assume their clients paid them for the data they collected from me. Pretty slick, in my opinion.
