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

MySoapBox 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.

Frustrating site

July 23, 2014 by Victoria from United States

I have been a member of this panel for years, way back when it was ClickIQ. When they transferred people over, even if someone (like me) had over 20,000 points, they state that you have to earn 25,000 points initially "so we know you are serious". I emailed them and had quite a debate about this, pointing out that clearly many of us are serious as we had been members of ClickIQ previously. They wouldn't budge. I get very few surveys from them.
The other day I actually got to the 25,000 mark, but at the end of the survey I got an error page saying they couldn't record my participation!! I was very upset and emailed them about it. To their credit, they did confirm my participation and I was able to redeem for an Amazon gift card. BUT this site is such a hassle to use - lots of disqualifications - and if I have to fight for my points it just isn't worth it. Not sure I will continue with them.

Better than Many Others

April 18, 2014 by Donald from United States

I surprised at the low reviews, but most appear to relate to qualifying and that has not been a big issue for me but it does happen occasionally. In any case, I've been a member now for about a year and I find survey qualifications are pretty consistent with other survey sites. What I like best though is that there actually appears be a real person manning the customer service desk, and the responses I get to my issues or inquires are prompt and clearly answer my problem. I've noticed on many other sites such as MySurvey or Valued Opinions that the issues are addressed for weeks and when they are, the answers are general statements or replies that have little (if anything) to do with the issue and provide no answers at all. It's clears those sites are all about making money but not paying members for time or trouble. Last point, the MySoapBox site certainly has a decent set of rewards to choose from although I wish PayPal was one of them.


April 2, 2014 by Allison from United States

This panel looked decent enough to try. The rewards are decent, but I have a problem with their surveys, I get disqualifed every time. At first I was getting points, then all the sudden every survey they sent to my email I'd be disqualified. I've even taken them right away soon as they were emailed to me. Says our quota has been filled, you've been disqualified. It even did it with a special live survey I was supposed to do with them. I was supposed to talk to a moderator and when they sent me the host link, did the same thing. I told them of this issue, and they credited me 5,000 points when it was for 20,000. I was so ready to cash out but I had that issue. It really upsets me, and I haven't bothered to contact them of the issue I'm sure I'll get the run around, but I'd avoid them for the issue of being disqualified everytime they email you a survey. It really is discouraging.

Never qualify for any surveys

February 15, 2014 by Roger from United States

They sent me a lot of surveys when I first singed up and I qualified for most all of them... Now I never qualified for any... My Current Point Balance Is 5960.

I doubt I will ever reach the cash out of 25000 points.

I could be wrong but i think they are one of those company that makes a lot of money off of you in the beginning and then drops you like a hot potato.

Hard to qualify

February 11, 2014 by Robert from United Kingdom

They send lots of survey's but I seldom qualify. Seems hard to make cash to me.
