Qbord is owned and operated by PMG Intelligence, a market research company based in Waterloo, Ontario which was established back in 1993. The Qbord panel is a community of individuals looking to make a difference. You can share your opinions and potentially impact the future of business and other industries.

How it Works

The process with Qbord is simple – complete surveys, earn points for your time, then cash out your points towards different reward options.

Reward System

Earn reward points for the online surveys you complete. Once you accumulate enough points, you can use them in many different ways.

  • Visa Prepaid Cards: Use points to get Prepaid Visa cards in $25, $50 or $100 denominations.
  • Gift Cards: Redeem your points for gift cards to great places such as: Best Buy, Petro Canada, The Bay, Tim Hortons, Starbucks, Home Depot, Canadian Tire, Netflix, Google Play, McDonald’s and many more.
  • Auctions: Use your points to bet on auction prizes - if you lose the auction, you'll still keep your points.
  • Charity Donations: Charity donations are also available. Check the website for the latest featured non-profit organization. Each time a panelist donates to a charity then Qbord donates an extra $10 to the same charity on your behalf.
  • Sweepstakes: Use your points to enter into a chance to win prizes or cash.

Focus Group Opportunities

Qbord advertises to their Canadian members the opportunity to participate in paid focus groups where, if selected, a minimum of $75 will be awarded.

Win a Contest!

Qbord offers contests to their panelists for doing various tasks. If you recruit a friend, fill out a poll or interact on social media you could earn yourself an entry into a sweepstakes with winnings that could come in the form of free cash or merchandise.

No surveys!!

February 7, 2017 by Corinne from Canada

I have been sitting at 340 points now for about a month, with absolutely NO surveys to take. You need around 5000 points to get the lowest gift card amount. I realize that the number of surveys you get has to do with demographics, but come on!! I even tried to give my points to a charity before unsubscribing, and it said "no featured charity." Don't waste your time with this miserable site. They are a complete wannabe compared to the many survey sites out there who pay well and regularly.

No surveys...

They should not accept new members if they don't have enough surveys!

Horrible Survey Panel

December 30, 2015 by Yogi from Canada

Friends...please stay away from this survey panel. At the beginning they will send you lots of surveys and you will redeem your rewards fast; however, as soon as you are ready for your second rewards or onward, they never send you the rewards nor answers your email. I had emailed them multiples times re my reward and to date it's been over 2 months and no response and no rewards. Very disappointed. Stay away!

Quick surveys, easy rewards.

I have been a member of Qbord for about 4 months now - I just received my first $25 prepaid Visa card in the mail and it only took a few days to get it.

So far so good!
