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.

Oh Bummer

January 18, 2017 by Bridgette from United States

Heya fellow members. Hi Elle. I read your review of Jan. 8, 2017 and felt like I had deja-vu. I am having the same exact issue. You have to accumulate 25,000 points to cash out for your $25. I have been doing surveys for 3 weeks. I am at 23,743 points. I only need 1,257 points to cash out.

You guessed it. I can't get there!!!! At first surveys were bountiful, and now - suddenly none are available. I have emailed them twice and they suggested that I try their games or Facebook blog.

Right. You earn $0.10 after viewing any ads during your game --- you may or may not get any ads during your game. I just checked the BBB. They are located in Malibu, CA and are not BBB accredited. They have been in business for two years.

I suggest we all get together and go on the BBB website for Malibu, CA and file our complaints. I worked hard on the surveys to get this far and not get rewarded for my efforts. What a scam. Sometimes you spend 15 minutes answering questions only the be told that you are not a match. "OH BUMMER"!!!!!

Disappointed beyond words ! SHADY DISHONEST

January 8, 2017 by Elle from United States

You will never get the 25
you need 25 to cash out !
You have a few points left and they won't give u anymore surveys! No more emails no more anything! Warning warning

Listen up everyone this site promise you the world at first they hold your hand take you through give u bonus make its seem really great! But like a jerk on a few dates after getting what they want they don't contact you or reply to your messages !! Even send you to a cat and mouse help ur self site where you find out you weren't the only one!

Um... I see everyone is having the same problem maybe they just don't care ! I think it's best we warn ppl about this ! I say we go and post warning ppl of these issue we are having ! Good luck guys I'm calling it a lost !

To pointclub I have to say this is shady of you, we all took are time and join your club answer the surveys we should get what we earn, if you don't wanna hold up your promise of providing us with surveys enough to hit $25 to cash out then allow us to cash out early! I feel like I been lied too you got us to do everything you needed and left us with nothing in the end!

10101 to go and u stop giving me surveys and if u do its just disqualified automatically or freezes !

angels pointclub review

November 10, 2016 by angel from United States

i dont mind point club but its not my favorite website for surveys i hardly ever qualify and get disqualified for surveys before i start them and you need alot of points to cash out, its scammy in a way but the site has its ups if you ever get the points you need you can get a reward in giftcards and the surveys are short if you dont qualify you get 5 points or so but i dont care for point club myself!

Not so good

October 19, 2016 by william from United States

I spent an hour, maybe even a bit over an hour... taking my time giving the utmost integrity to the individual survey and at the very, very end of the survey (Like final question) it eliminated/booted me w/ a disqualification as the reason. I do not care so much about the points as I do preventing 1 other good person for having to go through this. I am offended and taken a back that PointClub would do their survey takers this way. Stay away, from PointClub, is my final advice/suggestion.

UPDATE: PointClub did make it right and one of their staff credited my PointClub account for the entire 750 points (which I think they should have)

So, now all I can say is I am very happy and will update their ratin*g as well.

Update: The time it takes to put in the work on this site to earn the minimum initial payout is pretty sick. Lot's of advertising on this site but we must be paying for it. I have been putting decent work on PointClub for over a month and I am not quite halfway to my $25 PayPal goal.

My suggestion: PASS on this site.

Try it

August 1, 2016 by Kathleen from United States

I have been with this site now for about a month. But haven't cashed out yet, as one will need over 20,000 or more to cash out, but their is a bundle of surveys on the site.
Try it and let me know if you like it.
I'll give it 4 stars for now, but might change if anyone else thinks it is worth it.
