How PointClub Works

pointclub website

What PointClub Is

PointClub is a website which gives the opportunity for members to earn rewards from answering surveys and participating in other online activities.

Super-Fast Registration Process

Join PointClub with just a few keystrokes using your Facebook or Google account. Alternatively, you may join the traditional way - using your email address. You’ll be asked for your home address (to verify your location) and to receive your first payment check (if located in the USA).

Who Can Join

You can access this website from any country, and there are money-making opportunities for residents of the USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, France, Germany, the UK and the Netherlands. However, USA residents will find the most opportunities to make side-income from this website and will by far, have the most success with it.

Payment and Rewards

Join and Get up to 5,000 Free Points (Worth $5)

Become a free member of PointClub and jump start your membership by receiving 500 free points credited to your account. Receive points for joining, points for confirming your email, and extra points for completing the short profiling questionnaire, for a total of 5,000 points, or $5.00. This is a particularly generous sign up bonus compared to those offered by most of PointClub’s competitors.

Receive Cash or Gift Cards for Your Participation

By completing surveys and participating in other research opportunities, you will earn points which can be redeemed for PayPal payments or digital gift cards (though your first reward will automatically come in the form of a payment check). You may request a reward with 25,000 points, worth $25, in your account. This is PointClub's minimum cashout. Alternatively, you may request your rewards at the 50,000 ($50), or 100,000 ($100) threshold levels.

  • Payment check: The first time you cash out your rewards, you will receive a check in the mail. This is done to verify your address and is the first and only time PointClub will issue a payment check to your address (sent by US mail).
  • Earn gift cards: PointClub has over 200 gift card options available that you can exchange your points for. These include Amazon, Tango, Walmart, Home Depot, Target, Macy's, Lowe's, Sephora, Google Play, and many, many more. Visa prepaid cards are also a prize option. You may request a gift card with as little as 25,000 points ($25) in your account. Gift cards are only available as e-gift cards.
  • Get paid by PayPal: If you prefer cash, you can opt to receive a $50 cash payment made to your PayPal account. This will require 50,000 points and a 2% withdrawal fee will apply.

PointClub Advantage All e-gift card deliveries and PayPal payments should take no longer than 7-10 business days to process.

Survey Taking Experience

Earn Points for Surveys

Every time you participate in a PointClub survey, you will earn points redeemable for gift cards or cash. You can earn anywhere from 200 to 5,000 points per survey completion. Surveys typically take between 5 - 30 minutes to complete. Your points will be awarded once a survey fully closes, so you may have to wait up to 4 weeks before your points are available in your account.

At any time, you can view your current approved points, point status, and points needed for redemption by viewing your PointBank on the sidebar of your account dashboard.

Points Value: 1000 PointClub Points = $1.00. Therefore, each point is worth $0.0001.

Tons of Survey Opportunities Available

At any time, you may log into your account to view a list of online surveys available for completion. You will also be notified by email when you may qualify for a new survey, but it's a good idea to log into your account regularly to check for opportunities.

Get Points for Screen Outs

If you get screened-out, or disqualified from a survey, PointClub will still credit your account with 12 points after 5 unsuccessful attempts. This counteracts the frustration of spending time on the start of a survey only to be dismissed with no compensation.

Easy Redemptions

Once you have reached the minimum of 25,000 points needed to redeem, a button will appear in the sidebar of your dashboard. A weekly distribution model for rewards is followed so that redemptions requested throughout a week are collated and sent ahead for further disbursal to Club members in the immediate/following week. That means that you should never have to wait more than 7-10 business days to receive a gift card to PayPal reward.

40 no question surveys in a row

November 3, 2023 by pesach from United States

It has now been about 8 days and each day I clicked on a survey and not even a single question, just a message to choose another survey. I wonder if they are still in business as emails unanswered as well. I have about 15,000 points and thus will take about 6 months a 60 failure points a day at this rate to reach the required 25,000 for cash out assuming they still exist. What is going on?

Non Payment

October 29, 2023 by Warren from United States

They are the worst of the worst in terms of being honest and fair during the payment process. It took me about 3 months to finally reach their ridiculous cash-out limit of $25 on the 5/25/18. One would think, after toiling so long and hard to complete their stupid surveys, they will at least pay those who reach the quota, immediately. I am still waiting for my hard-earned $25 now 15 days later on 6/10/18. They had the gall to shift blame on PayPal whom we all know will alert someone if fraud, incoming or outgoing payment is process through their very highly advanced encryption systems. If they were honest and not scamming innocent survey takers, they will not have a ridiculous high cash out limit of $25 that take months to reach if you are lucky and then to add insult to injury, throw blame on PayPal which is a lie, stall and stall and stall for weeks before they pay. I am on my 15 day of wait time while they find more excuses not to pay what i have toiled over for months taking surveys. Please read the poor ratings and complaints on BBB and lots of negative online reviews. Please Stay Away. Not Worth The Time.

[UPDATE AND FOLLOW UP]
Well i left my review of Point Club recently and i also complaint on their Facebook page when they held my payment hostage for too long. I already said what i had to say, but what i am doing now is pointing out how far down the drain some companies will go to stop someone from revealing their flaws and opening the eyes of the desperate sheep that still hope things will get better. After i complaint and complaint and complaint, i finally got my payment, but it came at a price known as Being Censored. I can no longer leave a comment or like, dislike + respond to what other members said on their Facebook page. Three of my friends, who backed me up on Facebook, are also censored from leaving comments on Point Club Facebook page. Maybe they think we were making too much sense when we warned the other members to think about how ridiculous it is for a survey company to milk us out of our valuable data 24/7, keep the points hostage and pending for weeks and months, then to make things worst, keep the cash-out payment pending for as long as they can get away with it. One would think if a survey company allows a minimum cash out of $25, which takes at least 3 months to achieve if we are lucky, then at least they will gladly pay on time, when a member finally reaches the finish line. Censoring someone from leaving a comment is a Red Flag which says a lot about their credibility.

PURE DISHONESTY

October 10, 2023 by george from United States

the times on the surveys for this site are FICTION, I just accessed a SUPPOSED five minute study, at least that is what the dashboard on my account said, I was asked to view FIVE videos, four TWO minute videos and one FIVE minute video on solar panels

That means, with out answering a single question after the videos, which of course there were, no HONEST person could say this study is LESS THAN 13 minutes

But not POINT CLUB, someone there, deemed this a five minute study

DO NOT BOTHER with this site, the times are meaningless, and if they cannot provide HONESTY, why should panelists

Takes forever to approve pending points

August 29, 2023 by Rebecca from United States

I have been with point club surveys for a while and I used to do surveys every so often until recently I was very active and I have submitted enough surveys to cash out but my last 2 surveys that are pending still haven't been approved even though it is past the 2-6 week mark. Before this within 2 weeks my points were approved now that I'm close to redeeming my points they are still pending. I have read that they will leave them there for over a year and not review them which I don't know what I can do to prevent that from happening I have wrote them multiple times and out of curiosity I made a new account and sent a message about something different and was immediately responded to within days through email. So it clear this site is not standing on their word, also every other survey site can immediately give you your incentive for whatever survey you complete but this one and I don't understand what could be taking this long.

Dear Rebecca,

Sincere apologies for all the inconvenience caused and please be assured that all findings associated to the concern(s) raised will surely be relayed back to you once our investigation is over.

It is rare that a PointClub member email has gone unanswered, and I would surely like to double check it myself for the surveys pending.

Please if you may reply on the last email message received from PointClub in this context and will be of one help to take this case further. Also, do not miss out giving a reference of this post in your reply.

Thank you for your patience.

Takes too long to accumulate points

June 23, 2023 by Margaret from United States

My review title says it all. The majority of the surveys you won't qualify for, which is frustrating and a waste of time.

UPDATE: If I ever get to cash out, it will be the end of this survey website for me. I will not be doing any more surveys with them.

PointClub responded to this review on July 20, 2023

Dear Margaret,

We try our best to show the most relevant surveys matching to your profile. However, there are times when we cannot completely profile the requirement of our clients. In those scenarios, we have to roll out these surveys to the members whose profiles are somewhat similar to our client's needs, and this increases the chance of members getting disqualified from these surveys.

We're working hard towards avoiding these scenarios by adding more relevant questions in our profile, which will help us match our members more efficiently with the requirements of a given survey.

Please also clear the cache and cookies prior to starting a survey, also ensure that pop-ups are not blocked.

We would request you to continue taking surveys as we're sure that there will be many which you'll qualify and get the points for.

Thank you for your patience.

Team PointClub
