My latest review is about QuizPoints. I know some of you may be like who?…
That is why I wanted to write about this online rewards site. QP is one of the oldest yet one of the least known survey and offer sites around.
But I have been a member here for 6 years now, which is why I decided this was a good time to give you the details of my experience with this site. So here it goes…
Join Point Club, a new survey site that earns you rewards from Games, Deals, Video and even Celebrity Gossip.
The Story Behind QuizPoints
The organization that owns and operates QuizPoints.com is known as Digital Branding, LLC. This also happens to be the company running the show at the immensely popular bargain and freebie site, GoFreebies.com.
Digital Branding has won acclaim as an online media and advertising agency known for using innovative techniques to help advertisers get through to their target audience using advanced demographics, contextual, geographic, and behavioral technologies across a network of user-friendly content websites with a high degree of accuracy and scale customizability.
QP first began its journey in the year 2003. It started out as a site that helped you design quizzes before sharing them with friends and family. Members of the site were able to earn points by not only creating quizzes but also answering them.
But persistent complaints from members as to what could they do with their accumulated points, apart from the fact that the site wasn’t in a position to offer prizes and rewards since it wasn’t generating any money/displaying any ads, forced the site to undergo a revamp in 2011 and out came an internet rewards website that allowed members to earn gift cards.
Try Swagbucks, the famous rewards program that pays you for watching videos, taking surveys, shopping and more.
Ever since its revamp, QuizPoints has rewarded its loyal members with thousands of gift cards.
QP is a site like CashCrate (don’t forget to read my recent review of CC) that basically allows you to earn money for doing simple things that you’d do anyway on the web. By simply browsing and clicking, you can earn points for performing a wide variety of tasks like taking surveys, visiting new websites, or just passing time by clicking on the web.
Every one of those activities can help you earn points. Plus, the points you earn also add up pretty fast. And once you accumulate a certain level of points, you can ask for free gift cards delivered to your doorstep directly without any charge. It’s that simple!
BBB Rating & Reviews
QP doesn’t have accreditation from the BBB (Better Business Bureau). However, the site does find mention on the official BBB site under its parent company, i.e. Digital Branding, LLC.
Sadly though, the company holds an F grade in its BBB listing. However, there is a possibility that the site might be ignorant of its rating on the BBB, which might be leading it to bypass the complaints people filed with that organization.
I say this because it turns out that the site itself hasn’t applied till now for BBB accreditation.
How Does Quiz Points Work?
To start earning with QuizPoints, you must register by entering details of your email ID and password. You can sign-up here without paying anything. However, you need to be 18 years or older and possess a valid email ID. A United States residency is also a must.
Once you complete registration, you are eligible to earn points by way of taking surveys, shopping online and completing offers.
Basically, there are 3 ways in which you can earn.
- Complete Surveys (registration is free for survey panels).
- Complete Offers (some require a fee while some are free).
- Buy things online as you normally do (through their website however).
Every time you perform any of the above tasks, you can earn points. Over time, once your points add up, they can be redeemed for cash and gift cards.
One thing I like here is that an offer informs you beforehand as to the number of points it is worth and the value of those points.
For instance, Obopay’s listing says it’s worth 350 points. Now that amounts to $7.00. I know that Obopay allows free registration in addition to giving new members a one-time bonus of $5.00. So in all, completing this offer earns you a nice $12.00; pretty good compensation for what is essentially a 2 minute task.
You get credited for most of these offers within a few minutes. There are also certain offers that take up to 2 hours to complete the credit.
Only in some rare cases, and they indeed are very rare, does an offer equal or breach the 24 hour mark to complete the crediting the process.
In case you have to wait that long without the credit arriving, you have the option of submitting a request for missing points, which is then investigated by the site’s support team.
QuizPoints allows you to redeem your earned points for PayPal cash or gift cards with the condition that you must have a minimum of 500 points at least.
These 500 points get you a gift card worth $10 or PayPal cash of similar value. There are more than just a few stores whose gift cards you can choose to receive.
It’s safe to say, this site offers the widest choice of stores I’ve ever seen.
Another thing that I found likeable on QuizPoints.com is that you actually can submit suggestions regarding the prizes and rewards you’d like the site to offer.
What’s great though is that the site actually does listen to these suggestions and keeps adding new prizes and rewards regularly.
It usually takes inside a week for your reward order to be processed. In quite a few cases, you might get your prize after more than 2 weeks you first ordered it. In a few instances, this wait could stretch up to 4 weeks.
The absence of a referral program irks me no end. There goes an opportunity to earn some money by referring family and friends.
However, here is yet another thing I love about this site. If you can find a sweeter deal on a different website, and if you let QP know about the same, the site will actually go on and match it.
So, in case QP offered you $20 to sign-up with Blockbuster online but you found a better deal on another website that offers you $25; you can link QuizPoints to the same. The site will duly modify its offer and match the one you pointed out.
That’s something I haven’t seen done by any other similar site.
So, at the end of the day, looking at their long history, my own experience and those of others I have read and heard about, I really have no problem recommending this site to you guys.
But as always mention in my reviews of survey sites, don’t expect to make a lot of money with this types of sites, whether QuizPoints or any other.
EarningStation is a new rewards program that pays you for doing things you already do online. You can cash out after every $10 you make.
