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.

Finally!!! Back to greatness!

May 25, 2018 by Lyle from United States

I joined this panel in 2014, and it was ok. Failed out of a lot of surveys, but I get it , gotta keep trying. Made decent money. 2015 and 16 were not the greatest with this site, but something seemed to happen in 17' that puts this one on the top of my list.

I started qualifying for a ton, and this was the only site that actually pays you points for failing surveys :) :) :). Thats smart business. I have no problem weeding through the surveys , and only qualifying for a few, if they are going to pay me. So far, i have cashed out about $220 in the past year. PointClub keep it up fellas.

Awesome site

November 4, 2017 by chantelle from United States

I joined PointClub just a few months ago and cashed out for $25 Amazon. Got an e-card quickly and without problem. You won't always qualify for surveys but if you get into the habit of at least logging in every day how much you get paid goes up as you level up. I am a level 10 and take a few seconds every morning to maintain that status.
They also give you 12 points for attempting your first handful of surveys each day...and you can get a code from Facebook to enter to win points every day. Plenty of surveys so the opportunities are there for sure.
I highly recommend this site and former review(s) are outdated...they have more rewards than paypal to choose from.
