NPD Online Research has re-branded itself as VIP Voice
Exclusive discounts and special offers
US residents will have access to exclusive discounts and special offers from a variety of different businesses. These exclusive member discounts do not require any points to use.
Special opportunities and contests
On occasion, VIP Voice offers special contests and sweepstakes opportunities to their members. One such opportunity is Pigskin Pick-em where you can win cash prizes every week during the football season.
The more you participate, the more points you get
VIP Voice offers a tiered rewards program that spans 5 different levels. The more surveys you complete, the higher you move up in levels, and the more points you will earn. In addition, your reward level determines the prizes you are able to access and bid on through SweepLand and BidLand.
For each survey you complete, you will earn points. The number of points you receive will depend on your current reward level as well as whether or not you qualify to complete a survey.
VIP Participation Points
If you attempt to complete a survey but do not qualify, you will earn VIP Participation Points. Level 1 members will earn 50 points for being disqualified, while level 5 members earn 550!
VIP Qualification Points
If you successfully complete a survey, you will earn VIP Qualifications Points. Level 1 members will earn 25 points for completing a survey while level 5 members earn 200 points.
Members who participate on the site regularly will have opportunities to earn bonus loyalty points. Take two surveys in each of the first two months of being a member and earn 10,000 loyalty bonus points. Earn an additional 5,000 loyalty bonus points for each consecutive month that you continue to participate in surveys.
Each VIP Voice point is worth one sweepstakes entry or one auction bid. You can use as many or as little points as you'd like to enter the SweepLand sweepstakes. For BidLand auctions, you must enter a bid greater than the "Current High Bid".
Try your luck in SweepLand
SweepLand is a sweepstakes program where your points can be entered into sweepstakes for a variety of different prizes. Winners are chosen at random. Each point you use in the sweepstakes is considered an entry, so the more points you put into the draw, the better your chances of winning a prize. Prizes have high values and are for things like HDTV's, $5000 cash, trips to tropical destinations, etc.
Bid on prizes in BidLand
BidLand is an auction-style program where you can use your points to bid on various items. The highest bidder at the end of the auction will win the prize and will have their points deducted from their account. If you do not win the prize, your points will be returned to your account.
Eligibility: USA and Canada residents, age 13+. Bidland and SweepLand are eligible to US resident 13+ and Canadian residents 18+.
I would spend time doing these stupid surveys just for points that go toward sweepstakes that you never win. I decided to try to bid on some items. After numerous bid attempts, I finally got a $25 restaurant gift card. To my horror, I look at the fine print and under the list of very limited restaurants that I can use this at, I have to order at least $50 worth of food and drink to able to use the $25 gift card!!! What a freaking rip off!!! And what a waste of my time!!! Beware of this place!!!
I get emails all the time from companies promising me the moon to join their survey things..I come to you guys to see if i should waste my time. From the looks of VIP..i will pass. One lady on for 12 yrs and only won ONE Magazine Sub....Sheeezz....Yeah I will pass. Thank you all for your input...Your wasted time is saving others time so don't think it was all in vain......(that was not meant to be mean, just grateful.) Thank you
I have been a member of NPD which is now VIP for a long time and I have yet to win anything, I think the only person benefiting on this site is the owner. They give you plenty of points to use on bidland or sweepland but if they never pay out they could give a million points, it's like monopoly money.
This site has been just OK for as long as I have been using it (12+ years). They give you surveys to do several times a week for which you earn points. The points are for you to enter into either their sweepstakes or to bid with in their auctions. There are a couple of problems with the site. First , they only seem to have a handful of surveys that they have users do , which can get a bit boring. Second , the chances of winning anything in the sweeps is astronomical given the number of participants. In 12+ years , I have only won a magazine subscription and I have entries there all the time. It would be nice if the points could be redeemed for actual prizes instead of a chance to possibly win something. For several months now they have been asking the same question at least once per session ("Have you bought Dockers in the past 7 days?") , which gets boring and is a bit ridiculous. How often does one buy pants and a specific brand to boot?!
Overall , the site is OK , just don't go there with winning expectations.
At first I thought I was really going to enjoy the VIP Voice survey site. They send some great surveys that are reasonably timed, about 15-20 minutes but for all the surveys you do...............you GET NOTHING but points to "BID" on your "COMPENSATION" with the worst prizes EVER. You get locked into a level, the highest being level 5 meaning you take all the surveys but can only "BID" on level 5 junk, the only thing worth bidding on are 2 gift cards at either $25 or $10 and good luck getting em because every other level 5 is trying to get paid for all the survey's we've taken! This is such a disappointment and they NEVER, NEVER update the bidding items, they range from a whopping $25 gift card down to much crappier .01 penny items such as "magazines, cup cooler, stylus pen and more well, VIP left-overs. They also promise an additional 10000 points for every month you take the "free surveys" you are doing for them. Other than the "Daily Digest" offer they run, I won't be taking another single survey with this rip-off company. Unless you plan on taking surveys on your own time and for free for VIP Voice to make money on you, I would steer clear of this "fake compensation package" survey company who again, doesn't compensate you but makes you "bid" or put your points in a sweepstakes to get paid for all you've done. Sorry VIP Voice, cut the crap and compensate your surveyors! This could be a great one but not until they start paying up!
