My Review of GlobalTestMarket (Updated September-2014)

Global Test Market is definitely one of my favorite online survey sites.

Survey Frequency

GlobalTestMarket offers members numerous online surveys. On average I receive 3-4 survey invite emails daily. Within the survey email, it indicates survey number and reward for survey completion which is market points 99% of the time.  Also Whenever I log into my GMT account, there is always a long list of surveys waiting for me to take.

Survey Quality

GlobalTestMarket provides members a wide diversity of market research survey opportunities. Many of their surveys are quite easy and interesting, usually take about 10-25 minutes to complete. Personally I have done many product testings and online focus groups for them. I especially loved the new brand name products I tested.

If you have kids and teens, I highly recommend you join this panel, because they often have very good paying surveys for kids and teenagers. My kids have taken many of their surveys and earned quite bit of money! :)

Survey Rewards, Crediting & Payment

Like I said 99% of the surveys reward market points, usually from 35 points to 100 points, and every time you take a survey, you will earn sweepstakes entries whether or not you qualify and complete the survey.

Majority of the online focus groups I have participated required less than an hour of my time and pay minimum 600 points!

One thing I really like Global Test Market is upon completion of a survey, they immediately credit points to your account accurately, so no waiting period of survey crediting!

I have cashed out rewards many times since I joined GTM several years ago, and have always received the cash payment via check without any issues. I am so glad that GTM now offers cash via Paypal option, and hopefully this will help those who don’t have a bank/checking account or those have had problems receiving payment check in  the past.

Watch the following video which explains how you to redeem your points/rewards:

Member Support

Global Test Market provides professional customer service to it’s members. Personally I have contacted customer service many times, and have always received response with 48 hours, and my issues have always been dealt with and resolved to my satisfaction.

Pros & Cons

Here is a quick recap of Pros & Cons of Global Test Market Survey Panel:

Pros
- Frequent survey invites;
- Fair & good survey compensation;
- Good quality surveys, such as many product tests & focus groups;
- Many surveys for kids & teens;
- Good survey tracking system, especially credit surveys immediately and accurately after completion;
- Wide selection of rewards, including cash via Paypal/check, amazon and various popular gift cards;
- Good member support

Cons
- Only con I can think of is you have to accumulate minimum 1100 points before you can cash out. The good news is that points do add up quickly if you take their surveys regularly.

Other Notes & Tips

Refer a Friend

GlobalTestMarket_ReferralCurrent GTM members can refer their friends and family. For each referral you will earn 20 market points (about $1). Just log into your account, and on the right, there is a “Refer a Friend” box. Just enter your friend’s email and click “Invite Now” button. GlobalTestMarket will send your friend a email and invite him/her to join the panel.

Mobile App & Surveys

GlobalTestMakret has a new mobile app for members to take their new mobile friendly surveys, which are designed specifically for your mobile devices such as smart phones and tablet. Check out this video for more information:

Tip#1: Complete your profiles

This tip actually applies to other surveys panels as well. Go to GTM and login int your account, you will see the “Surveys” page. At the bottom of the page is the “Profile Surveys”. Clicking the “Show all Profile Surveys” link displays all the profile surveys available. Currently from here you can see 7 profile surveys (at least to me): personal details, lifestyle, health, working life, finances, what you drive and purchases, with the date last completed. Each of those profile surveys takes about 5 minutes to complete.

Tip#2: Response surveys as soon as possible

This tip also is true to other survey sites. I remember when I first started with GTM, often time I ran into the “Sorry this survey no longer available”. You can begin with the high paying surveys. For example I always take the surveys for my kids as soon as I receive them because those surveys usually ofter more points and easy to qualify.

Do you recommend GlobalTestMarket?

Absolutely! – GlobalTestMarket is one of the very best online paid survey companies, and I highly recommend it! What do you think of Global Test Market? Is it one of your favorites?

    • Mei Lynn says:

  5. Abdeli asmara says:

  6. Sulaiman says:

    I do point redemption 1000 by check on the 15th of april 2014 but till now I exchange gifts with no check at all, I think the global test market already committed fraud to me, so a survey that they send me no longer responsible

    • Mei Lynn says:

      Hi Sulaiman, sorry to hear the trouble cashing out with them. Have you contacted their support about the problem?

    • Sulaiman says:

      I’ve been several times to contact support GlobalTestMarket answer I received from them check you will receive 8-10 weeks in fact none I received until now from 15/04 / 2014-25 / 07/2014 GlobalTestMarket true scam

    • Mei Lynn says:

      I think the check might got lost in the mail. Is your mail deliver service reliable? If the check gets lost, you might have to wait a few month for it to expire before they can issue a new check.

    • sulaiman says:

      I’ve received a 1 time payment to the address GlobalTestMarket and me, but for the payment to 2 seems GlobalTestMarket already scam

  7. andy says:

    I’m trying to redeem market points, i have 1120. When i go to the rewards page, i type all the necessary details but I don’t see the option to chose the mode of payment. Does it show on the next page after confirming the address on the GTM account? I don’t wanna confirm before knowing this. Thank you.

    • Mei Lynn says:

      Hi Andy,

      It’s been a while since my last redemption with GlobalTestMarket. but shouldn’t you pick the reward option (which includes the mode/method of payment) first, then enter your shipping address, based on this Youtube video they posted: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_5Fu4HGIb4

      If you are concerned, I suggest you take a screen shot of your account containing point balance before doing anything.

      Hope it helps.

  8. ed says:

    Global doesent have checks anymore. Only paypal. Do you still have the check options?

    • Mei Lynn says:

      Hi ed, I just doubled checked their reward section, and Yes, they still have check option – $50 check with 1100 points. Thanks for stopping by!

    • ed says:

      maybe not for the new accounts. they do have paypal but its more points.

  9. Mei Lynn says:

    Received the same email regarding the new reward: MLB e-certificate from Global Test Market: “Use your MarketPoints to get products from Major League Baseball”. Good new for sport fans, especially MLB fans.

  10. Johna881 says:

    I appreciate, cause I found just what I was looking for. You have ended my 4 day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a nice day. Bye bcbddgecdakg

  11. sm says:

    I am having problems logging to my globaltestmarket account. is anyone else having problems. I haven’t received a survey in 2 days.

    • Mei Lynn says:

      I have no problem logging into my account, seems a little slow though. Have been receiving surveys, actually received 8 emails (one is a reminder) today so far.

    • sm says:

      Do you know of any site that is as good as globaltestmarket for surveys?

    • Mei Lynn says:

      Sure. iPoll/Surveyhead, SurveySavvy, MyView, pinecone, mysurvey… are very good too. Also I suggest you sign up with as many as you can on the United States paid survey list. Those all are pretty good in my opinion.

      Are you able to log into global test market account?

  12. VITALY says:

    Dear Sirs! Recently there appeared serious problems with cashing issued cheques that You have Bank of America in our country. The last of Russian banks that accept foreign currency cheques for collection VTB24, refused to continue to do it. In this regard, please answer on question: can I return you the latest issued me a check Bank of America issued 15/04/2014 $130.00, followed by transfer 2600 MarketPoints to my account GlobalTestMarket.com to print out this money in my PAYPAL account? Another way to get money today I do not see. Or offer an alternative.

    • Mei Lynn says:

      Sorry to hear the trouble Vitaly. Did you know you can cash out points through Paypal? Anyway, you have to contact GlobalTestMarket support directly for this issue, since we have no relation with them. Hope it get resolved soon and good luck!

  13. Tiffany says:

    I accidentally wrote the wrong email when signing up, and couldn’t receive the confirmation number.
    I’ve tried creating a new user with the same information but different email account, and I got a message saying those information were already existing, however I wasn’t able to delete the “other account” because it was saying my email was not in their database.

    What should I do? Is there any way to delete my information from their database and try to sing up again with the correct email?

    • Mei Lynn says:

      Hi Tiffany,

      The reason you can’t create a new account with different email address is I think, your “other” information for the new account are the same for the “old” account such as mailing address and name. I think mailing address is the main reason.

      At this point, I think you should contact GlobalTestMarket’s support, using their contact form: https://www.globaltestmarket.com/contact.php. explain the whole situation, and make sure let them know your name and mailing address and the old/wrong email address if you can still remember and tell them the correct email address you want to use for your account.

      It might take at least a few days to get a reply from them (based on my experience)…You can also try to contact them via their facebook page if this doesn’t work.

      Good luck Tiffany, and hope you keep me updated.

  14. Mei Lynn says:

    Wow, just complete a survey 100 points, took about 30 minutes!

  15. Young saver says:

    never had a problem in my 3 years with GTB, you guys dont read the questions properly, follow the simple rules and you can (easiest way) get your money sent to pay pal then transfer the balance to your bank account, no charges, happy days. Imbeciles

    • Mei Lynn says:

      Thanks for your comment young saver!

    • Son says:

      I’m a new member to participate much I do not understand how to get the money so .. thanks

    • Mei Lynn says:

      Hi Son, after you have earned 1000 points, you can redeem your points as cash paid through Paypal or check. I am not sure if Paypal is available at your country, but you can check it out. Hope it helps and good luck!

  16. Mei Lynn says:

    Okay, I was trying to redeem for a $15 amazon gift certificate yesterday. I have enough points (currently 495 points), but got the error saying I need to have minimum 1000 points to cash out. So I contact their support and got a reply today:

    Thank you for contacting us. Please know that per the FAQs the minimum order value is 1,000 MarketPoints. In our new catalog, you will find rewards which have a value less than 1,000 MarketPoints. To redeem, you need to select one or more rewards together, to make the value of your Order worth a minimum of 1,000 MarketPoints or more. If your ORDER total is less than 1,000 points, the system will not let you redeem. Enjoy shopping in our new catalog!

    So looks like you still need to have at least 1000 points to cash out, it’s just that you have more rewards options!

  17. Mei Lynn says:

  18. Sarika says:

    I have redeemed my 1000 market points and received a mail as below.

    “Hi Sarika,

    We have received your request to redeem 1000 MarketPoints. You’ve been working hard and we really appreciate it!

    You will receive a check in your local currency within 4-6 weeks if you live in the United States, and within 6-8 weeks if you live outside the U.S. We appreciate your patience while your check is processed and mailed to you.

    Your check will be sent to the following address:
    sarikas1990@gmail.com
    Trivandrum, Kerala 686581
    India”

    on August 1, 2013.

    But I did not received the check yet and no response from their side after onwards.

    Also after onwards, I cannot sign in into any of my accounts. Always showing an alert ‘Please enter a valid E-mail Address and Password.’ But when I select forgot password option I get the same password into my gmail account. But on trying with that it shows the same alert.

    Also I do not receive any survey mails after onwards into any of my accounts.

    Please give me a reply.

    • mlynn says:

      Hi Sarika,

      Thanks for the update. I have a couple of questions for you:

      1. In their email it says

      Your check will be sent to the following address:
      sarikas1990@gmail.com
      Trivandrum, Kerala 686581
      India”

      My questions is: Is that a deliverable address? I mean there are no street number and street name, just your email address, how can the check reach that address?

      2. You also mentioned “one of my other accounts” – how many accounts do you have with them? If I remembered it correctly, GlobalTestMarket only allow one account per household. Also are all your account have the same address? If yes it might have raised a red flag. They might have detected that you have multiple accounts and therefore removed all your accounts.

      Anyway, that’s just my thoughts on this. I am not sure at this point what you can do. Sorry about that.

    • Sarika says:

      @Milen

      I have three accounts. Actually these are not my accounts. But I am handling it.
      sarikas1990@gmail.com
      anandsvijayan@gmail.com
      s.salini0@gmail.com

      Address is wrong in the mail. But why did they selected my email adress as my address?

      How will I contact them. No reply on any mails after that.

    • mlynn says:

      If you have mailing address filled out correctly I don’t know why they would use your email address. Did they ask you to confirm the mailing address when you cashed out? I kind of remember they asked me to do that when I cashed out.

      Regarding the three accounts, if they have same addresses, like I said they might have raised red flags.

      Sorry Sarika, I don’t know how to contact them either. I couldn’t find any phone number. Maybe you can try facebook, but I am not sure if that will help.

  19. Ganesh says:

    I redeemed my 1000 points for cheque 3 months back and I have still not received it. I send them alot of emails and have raised two cases and still not a single response except for their auto response. Is there anything else i can do?
    I am from India.

    • mlynn says:

      Any update on this Ganesh? Sorry to hear your trouble. Personally I never experience any payment problems with them. I do have contacted their support a couple of times and received help within reasonable time frame. Hope your issue get resolved soon. Please keep us updated.

    • mlynn says:

      Do you have a facebook account? Maybe you can contact them via Facebook? Just an idea.

  20. mlynn says:

    Global Test Market rocks! I just qualified for a great product test! Can’t say what it is due to confidentiality agreement.

  21. so In Nov and Dec of 2012, I requested 2 checks. $50 each using 1000 points for each check. It is now June 21, 2013. I have tried contacting them numerous times and each time they say theyll look into it….but it is June and still no checks. And now they won’t respond to my messages at all. I think t his site is very unprofessional, and the amount of time it takes to even get up to 1000 points for a cash out is not worth the hassle of trying to earn $50. The site is a joke

    • mlynn says:

      Sorry to hear the trouble you are having with them Mike…It’s been six months now the checks probably already expired. I would contact them again and ask them to issue you new checks or pay you via Paypal. Good luck.

    • mlynn says:

      Mike, I really wish the issue is resolved by now…hopefully you won’t have these kind of problems anymore, since global test market now offer Paypal or amazon gift cards rewards and the cash-out require alot less points and much quicker!

  22. Amber says:

    Is it still 1000 points-$50? Anyone ever won a sweepstakes? Why are the winners only posted through Sept 2012? I am very skeptical over this site. I go through 20 minutes of a survey only to screen out countless times a day

    • mlynn says:

      I believe it is still 1000points for $50. Global Test Market is legit I am for sure.

    • mlynn says:

      Hi Amber,

      I got an email from GlobalTestMarket on June 4 regarding their rewards changes beginning June 11, here is what they say in the email:

      ———————————————————–
      Beginning Jun 11, you will be able to redeem and choose from a wide range of rewards at GlobalTestMarket.

      You will be able to exchange your MarketPoints for Paypal Credit, Amazon and Starbucks vouchers, giftcards of well-known brands such as Macy’s, Applebees, CVS Pharmacy and much more… And you will be able to support a good cause by donating your points to Unicef, Red Cross and a few other charitable organizations!

      Q: What are the key benefits of the new GlobalTestMarket Rewards catalogue?
      A: The new GlobalTestMarket Rewards catalog provides members the ability to redeem their MarketPoints for a large variety of rewards: electronic vouchers including Amazon, paper vouchers but also Paypal, some physical products, charities etc. Checks are also an option in the new catalog. Try the new catalog yourself, it is easy to navigate and similar to well-known webshops. On top of that the delivery is much faster than before!

      Q: I used to redeem my MarketPoints for cheques. What can I do now with my MarketPoints?
      A: You can still redeem your MarketPoints for check. However, feel free to check out the new rewards now available through your GlobalTestMarket catalog: electronic vouchers, paper vouchers, Paypal, charities, but also dozens of physical gifts! All these rewards are of course available in USD and localized for our US community.

      Q: If I have a question or a problem with my rewards delivery, who should I contact?
      A: On the new GlobalTestMarket catalogue interface, you will find a FAQs/Customer Service tab. In case you have any questions about rewards delivery, go to your rewards account, select your order and contact the support team through the GlobalTestMarket rewards catalogue interface. Very simple! Please note that you can track and trace the status of your order through the interface too!

      Q: If I have a question or a problem with my cheque received before the new reward program was introduced who should I contact?
      A: Click Contact Us on the GlobalTestMarket website, complete the form and we’ll be happy to help!

      Q: Do I earn the same number of MarketPoints for my surveys?
      A: Absolutely! The number of MarketPoints earned for survey participation stays the same.

      Q: Does the value of my MarketPoints change?
      A: Historically, 1,000 MarketPoints was equivalent to $USD 50.00. With the new program, each reward has a unique value so the equivalence will vary based on the reward. Also depending on the reward, there is slight change in the value of MarketPoints to include delivery and management fees, but we trust that the added value brought by the new program will compensate for these minor adjustments.

      Q: How long does it take for my rewards to be delivered to me?
      A: The great news with the new GlobalTestMarket rewards catalogue is that delivery times are much faster! This depends on your choice of rewards of course, but rewards like Paypal or electronic vouchers are typically delivered within hours, sometimes minutes! Products like cheques or paper vouchers take a bit more time, within 2 weeks or so.

      Q: What is the minimum amount of MarketPoints I need to redeem?
      A: The minimum order value is 1,000 MarketPoints. In our new catalog, you will find rewards which have a value less than 1,000 MarketPoints. To redeem, you need to select one or more rewards together, to make the value of your order worth 1,000 MarketPoints. Enjoy shopping in our new catalog!

      ————————

    • Soly says:

      I just checked on the site. Intead of being .05 cents each point (1000points= $50), now its 1100 poinTs for $50. not a good change after all. Anyways most of us will claim the points for a check or paypal.

    • mlynn says:

      Thanks for the update Soly… I agree more points required for $50…not good.. on the other hand, they now now amazon and paypal cash options, and you can cash out at $10, $15, $20 and $25…

    • sm says:

      you still need a 1000 points:
      “Q: What is the minimum amount of MarketPoints I need to redeem?
      A: The minimum order value is 1,000 MarketPoints. In our new catalog, you will find rewards which have a value less than 1,000 MarketPoints. To redeem, you need to select one or more rewards together, to make the value of your order worth 1,000 MarketPoints. Enjoy shopping in our new catalog¨”

    • mlynn says:

      They haven’t updated their FAQ yet, but you can see the new reward category. I have 395 points right now I am thinking to get to 550 points to cash out the $25 amazon gift card.

      Hopefully these new rewards options (amazon and paypal) will help those have trouble receiving checks assuming they will email the amazon gift certificates.

  23. sm says:

    have anyone noticed a slow down in surveys this week? I havent received a survey for points this week from them, when I usually get a couple every day.

    • mlynn says:

      Not for me. Still 4-5 surveys a day, and most of them offer points.

    • mike says:

      yes, but its to be expected. theres not an infinite endless amount of surveys sometimes they have to wait for there to be a need. i got 1-2 surveys that i qualified for in the past 6 or 7 days. i usually get 5-6 a day. so yeah but thats probably overdue for a while now that thered be a lapse in surveys.

    • Soly says:

      these last days I received more surveys. Thanks for your responses.

  24. mlynn says:

    Received an email today from Global Test Market:

    Exciting News for our Members!

    Your opinion counts… and so does your experience! GlobalTestMarket is excited to raise the bar and bring you a NEW & IMPROVED member experience coming soon.

    Please keep your eyes peeled for further announcements at globaltestmarket.com

    Cheers,
    The GlobalTestMarket Team

    Hope it’s something good, lol.

    • mlynn says:

      GlobalTestMarket has a new look! Just completed a survey and logged into my account. The new site looks great!

  25. mlynn says:

    Warning: Be aware the Mystery Shopper Scam:
    Recently when I visited Global Test Market website and checked my account, I noticed this “Be Scam Smart -> Review our FAQ’s” note and I checked out their FAQ:

    I was contacted for a Mystery Shopping job, is it legitimate?

    If you have received an offer in the mail, by email, phone, or seen an advertisement online offering you work as a “customer services evaluator,” “mystery shopper,” “survey agent” or “customer service rep” for Global Market Insite, Global Market Insight, or Global Test Market, please be advised that this is a scam.

    We urge anyone who receives these offers not to cash or deposit any checks, not to send any money to Western Union or Money Gram or engage in any other financial transactions, and to refrain from disclosing personal or bank account information.

    If you have been the victim of this scam, we suggest that you contact your local and/or federal law enforcement authorities for advice on how to proceed to recover any stolen funds, secure your bank accounts and to protect your personal information and privacy.

    I think I might be the victim of a scam using the GlobalTestMarket name. What should I do?

    Please alert your local authorities to the issue. We are aware of some scams/fraudulent activity using the GlobalTestMarket name. If you are not sure if the communication you have received is legitimate, please contact us.

    DON’T TRUST THIS SCAM SITE did a 3 hr 80 point survey. complete-webpage failed after finishing-no credit, just sorry ass lamm routine non-personal emails GTM WILL GIVE YOU LONG SURVEYS_ AND AT THE END WEBSITE FAILS _NO CREDIT CHECK OUT COMPLAINTS AT SURVEY POLICE AND BBB! :sad:

  27. mlynn.admin says:

    Martha, have you earned enough points to cash out? You have to have 1000 points before you can redeem – I know it takes a while but you have to be a little patient, and don’t worry Global Test Market is legit and a good survey panel. Good luck to you.

  28. Martha Blancas says:

    N :sad: ot! happy, about this. First time i get to work in quite awhile, thinking i could trust these guys and, other survey companys. Wonder what they did with our information? I in dire need of money. My family thinks im not even trying. No! they havent paid me, want my pay i did this past summer.

  29. Steve says:

    I signed up for GlobalTestMarket and I have to say that so far I am pleased with GTM. I haven’t had a problem with any of the surveys, and I received my first cash out. It did take a while, but I got it and that is all that matters. It seems that this site is legit.

  30. autum says:

    How many times have you been to the movies? within the last 6 months, 12 months. When I answered none I did not qualify. I don’t often go to the movies. then they send me another one of the same to which I responded none. The next time I answered once I’ve been to the movies because it’s true. Still I get the same survey sent to me. Is there more to this? After weeks of having to answer the same question, I had enough. This site is not cool.

  31. Guy says:

    Worthless company! Have been waiting for my money for over a year now. Now they don’t even respond to my e-mails anymore. Don’t sign up!!

  32. Mahesh Chandra says:

    I was thinking that this is the best survey site till I had this experience.I requested for redemption in the month of July 2011.After repeated reminders they informed that your cheque has returned 2 times & I was asked to send an alternate address.I cant believe this as I am staying in a posh area of Delhi and I have never missed any post so far.Any how I sent alternate address and their reply was the same.More over I was informed that they send cheque 3 times and after that the money is forfieted.I requested them to send me the details of post and the address on which it was sent but thay will not send it.They will not send the money by any other means like bank transfer or Pay Pal etc.So we waste our time and dont get paid.I have 2500 points but I dont know how to get paid for it.All the mails r replied by one VICTOR as if there is no body else in the company.

    • chris says:

      every 1000 market points you get $50.00, in order to get that you must log in to your account. then go to the top of the website, there will be something called REWARDS, click on it!!!. once you get there, their will be an orange tag in the middle of the screen, it will say REDEEM, click on it!!!. by doing this, it will take what ever points you have and convert them into money. this money will be sent in the mail to your address. the money will be in your mailbox with in one week. good luck and i hope this response helped. =)

    [quote name=mlynn]Irine – I am sorry to hear your trouble with them. I understand how frustrated it can be. I had a very bad instance with them – I was taking a very long survey, 45 minutes into the survey, I encountered technical problem and was not able to continue!!! There was nothing I could do but gave up!!! Oh well took me a while to get over that! Anyway, now whenever I took their surveys, once I complete the survey I immediately check into my account to make sure they credit the points (since GlobalTestMarket credit surveys right after you complete the surveys.) If no points show up I would know something is wrong and I would catch the screen shot of the final “you have completed the survey and earned xx points” screen and of course save the invite emails. Hope this helps and hope you issue get resolved.[/quote]

    Unfortunately, I’ve got another final message – as I wrote – “The survey is closed” after I completed those 2 surveys. And I’ve sent a screen of message with words “You’ve already passed this survey”. But they just don’t care!

  35. Irine says:

    I’m lodging a complaint against globaltestmarket and against globaltestmarket client service.

    I’ve completed 2 surveys: 215109 and 214174. From beginning to the end! The first was about digital cameras, the second – about chocolate. I’ve spent 40 min on first survey and 1 hour on second. But in the end I’ve got message “The survey is closed”. They owe me 75 points! But they acting like robots!

    That message – “The survey is closed” – I’ve got not BEFOR, but AFTER I’Ve completed those 2 surveys. And I hadn’t even a one chance not to spend those hours I’ve spent on those surveys. THAT IS NOT MY PROBLEM – that is a problem of organization of their system. I’ve done my gob, so they should do theirs – they owe me 75 points!

    Nobody will work with globaltestmarket on those terms!

    I’ve spent 10 years with globaltestmarket. Now I’ve wrote and sent about 25 – 25! – letters to their custom service, on two languages. I’ve told about the problem, but got only two messages from “robots”, named Olivia and Histina: “Our system shows, that you haven’t completed the surveys” and “Hi, Unfortunately the survey has closed. Sometimes surveys require only a limited number of responses per category, for instance, from a region or age group. Once these quotas have been filled, the survey is closed. We look forward to your future participation. Best Regards, The GlobalTestMarket Team”. I’ve told them, that there is a failure in their’s system; I’ve sent them screens of messages, that I’ve got on the url, she sent me to check the problem – with words “You’ve already passed this survey” – but they just don’t hear me.

  36. Anne says:

    I have been waiting months for a check for $50 USD. They say I have an undeliverable address. If I don’t get my check on their 3rd attempt to resend it to me, they said it’s their company policy to forfeit my check because I did not provide them with a deliverable address.

    I have confirmed my address with them more than once.

    I get all my mail delivered. I think they just do not want to pay me. All company’s attempting to h ire Global Test Market should think twice. They do not appear to be an upstanding corporate citizen.

  37. Anne says:

    I have been waiting months for a payment — they keep saying I have an address they cannot deliver to – I have reconfirmed my address with them several times. I always get my mail

    name=”ishad”]My globaltestmarket Account number is 19918503 and they cheat by didn’t send check after redemption of 1035 points and officials didn’t respond to my complaints properly. They mail me that they issued anew check but it also a big lie because after 3 months itself I didn’t receive check from them but I got Payment from mturk via check regularly. So they are cheating the workers. :cry: [/quote]

  38. mlynn.admin says:

    I am sorry to hear about your trouble with Global Test Market ishad. I have been a member for over 5 years with them and have never had any problems with payments. Maybe the check got lost somehow??? They can re-issue a check once the lost one expires if that’s the case. I would suggest you contact them again.

    Update – I don’t qualify for their surveys enough..so I deleted my account. Not as good for me in 2011 as it was in 2010.

  41. Chrissie says:

    I have found Global Test Market to be good. I have received many surveys and a cheque for the US equivalent for $50, as promised. The achievable surveys slow down in frequency when nearing the target, but that might be just my impatience.

    Hi alazar2681 – sorry to hear your trouble with global test market. I suggest you contact their support. I once also had my account deactivated, but their support re-activated after I contacted them. I couldn’t remember the exact the reason for that…I have never had other problems with them. Hope get your issue resolved soon. good luck!

  46. alazar2681 says:

    I had GTM as my number one survey site for one and a half months. Then i cashed out. I still havnt recieved a dime and they started sending me surveys without point value lol loike im going to waste my time. I just deleted them. Finally I log on just to check and my account has been deactivated with no reason given. BS company. Remember they say in marketing if it sounds to good to be true…it is.

  47. mlynn.admin says:

    GlobalTestMarket sure is not as good as before (the days when you get 5 points even if you disqualify)…I would say for me 55% of the surveys I received are sweepstakes ones..but I still get to do quite some point/cash surveys, surveys are not too long and I like they credit my surveys immediately after I finished the surveys…Still one of my favorite..

  48. Jo says:

    I whole heartedly agree! I used to take their surveys and reap the rewards, then they changed to the sweepstakes and gave less pts for taking surveys, that is IF you qualified after the long process of taking the survey disguised as a screening questionare. As soon as I reached $50 I cashed out and closed my account.
    It’s a total waste of time.

  49. LeaF says:

    Please see my previous review when GTM was one of my best. No longer. Bait and switch into sweeps. Prelims which are surveys in disguise then disqualified. OTX surveys which I delete. Rarely qualify and unreachable $50 cashout should be lowered because rewards lowered. I have reached cashout with most of my points acquired before the downgrade and still subscribe because I know that when I cashout I will unsubscribe because I will never reach $50 again.

  50. Golgotha says:

    Update – I receive several surveys a month, but seldom qualify. If their for sweeps I delete them. I haven’t had any problems with them.

  51. smartie says:

    Hi all,

    Has anyone participated in a mobile/smartphone survey in France or UK this year?
    In Toluna or GMT or Pure Profile?

    Do you remember how you were rewarded for it?
    Did you have any problems completing the survey or spending too long before being screened out?

    I work for smartphone manufacturer that paid for that research. We got weird results and I am investigating. Thanks for your help.

    Thanks!

  52. joe says:

    :sad:
    Don’t waste your precious time with this company. I have had numerous errors occur at the end of surveys and only got a form letter response and don’t receive enough for completed surveys. Beware

  53. meenu says:

    hi,
    i had been member from last 3months but ihad received only 100 points and attended only 10-12 surveys so please can any one help me to get more surveys and more points

  54. frilly says:

    I am in Australis but I wish I had a phone num,ber for them I would feel every penny spent talking to them would be worth it as they will not answer an email no matter what.
    They have got to the point of being arrogant and down right rude regarding us as worms they dangle carrots in front of.
    AS you say we were paid fairly but now the screening is a survey in itself and not until you have been screened do they tell you it is a sweeps stake.
    No blog now it has disappeared so no comments on their site. They are frightened we will get together .
    Who is BBB so I can complain. I cannot evenget an answer to my money

  55. Anonymous says:

    [quote name=Leaf]Pays well (5cents a point), average survey 250 points, $50 payout not difficult to reach. Excellent customer service. They are having a problem on their web with itemized lists of completed surveys but they are working on it. Also are starting to have OTX surveys which I do not like. Other than this a great survey company. One of my best.[/quote]I never received more than 45 per survey and no points for screened out now

  56. frilly says:

    I really am very very upset with GTM. It all started at Easter we were given a survey which we had to complete every day if we failed we did not get paid it was for 400points.
    I completed every day the last day the did not post the survey. I emailed them and tried to draw attention to the fact we had to finish that day. I was getting no reply I guessed it was a weekend that something was off in US. I even kept getting up in the night to check. I went to toilet and had a shower and it was out and gone. I asked what had happened. They said I had missed it they were sorry.
    IKt was still in my mail so I did as they suggested have another try but in the end they admitted they had closed it so it was finished on time their end I suppose. Theyu would not pay me anything I kept getting I felt were secret messages from some of the people there. Just being kind but I got nothing and it was not my fault they said their employer had said no so nothing they could do.
    I had a couple of small surveys after this but great hollows in between. I asked for my points to be redeem I was so fed up. They said they appreciated I had worked so hard all year they really appreciated my hard work.
    After this I have had 3 times been offered special work again over several days starting the following thursday it was for 500 points or $25 UD. I wait and allocated my time from the following Thursday to enable me to complete the work. Not miss out this time.
    Nothing arrive, no work, no apology, nothing to even say that I had even been offered the work.I did all the writing again. IO just did not exist, then I received another offer of the same nature. Went thru the same thing NOTHING. I have written, I cannot find ouut where my money is I have written to everyone there I think.
    A couple small surveys after you have been screened it is for sweepstakes too late to finish or walk out so to speak.
    Then today I have received to more 8 week diaries take 5 mins each thursday for 8 week only 200 points but it sounds less work. I need the pay for the nearly 1200 points. That is why I am still here.
    I went to sign in on each of these surveys went to next “page” it just says on a totally blank page otherwise “you have to fill in the questions first”"
    That is what it says on both of these surveys. What am I supposed to do. I have asked them if they do not want me to just pay my money and say so.
    They have asked NOTHING since Easter not even when I have had a technical fault the survey has just ended and did not exist.
    They do not have a blog now or a forum so you cannot speak to anyone else see if there any more complaints. I looked at the Survey Police it just take you to Global Test Markets Home Page
    Any ideas email me I am so upset about all of this
    frilly

  57. Lilly says:

    I agree with Brian. This company is a waste of time. You spend quite a bit of time on a survey only to learn you’re screened out. After a month or so, I completed only two surveys for which I got points and I lied about my product usage on one of them because I knew if I told the truth I would get screened out and I figured they owed me for all the time I’d already put in on all the surveys I’d gotten screened out of. Treat people fairly and they’ll treat you fairly.

  58. Brian says:

    I belong to about 3 or 4 survey sites and I was really excited about Global Test Market because they seem to give you a lot of opportunities. Granted, I found out I was screened out more often, but that was fine.

    I wasn’t crazy about the sweepstakes only surveys, but they were OK, then I started realizing that they were as long, if not longer than normal surveys with points. I figure the less you are willing the give, the less time you should make us give.

    The second thing that really started bugging me was taking me into the survey up to 20 detailed questions sometimes until I was finally screened out. I thought I was already taking the survey! The questions they asked are involved enough that they can use them for their research and not have to pay. I also didn’t like the way they handled when you are screened out. “Bummer, you’re screened out, but you’re still the coolest!” I’m not 15 – don’t talk down to me.

    My final straw was this past week when I took a survey, I was being told I was starting the survey, I got to the end of the survey, they asked for my demographics, which I gave, and then suddenly I was taken back to GTM’s site to be told I was screened out. I was livid!

    I e-mailed them about the mistake, and they just confirmed I was screened out. I e-mailed back (even though they marked my my case as resovled – who does this without giving the customer a little time to dispute?) and asked them to check again, and got another message that after further review, I was screened out. I then e-mailed them back and told them computers are not always right (believe me, I work on them all day) and if they don’t believe me, send me the survey again, I’ll take screencaptures this time so they can see.

    You know, I didn’t expect them to do this, I didn’t even expect them to credit my account, but also I didn’t expect one of the biggest insults I’ve ever gotten from a survey site – they copied and pasted their last answer to me.

    I’m done. I unsubscribed, I was a quarter of the way to my first check and wasn’t sure if I’d make it ever or not. I have now read some very nasty reviews of this site that they have changed, no longer offer good points, some people say they cancel your account JUST before you reach your first check.

    For those of you who have had luck – congratuluations, but for those of you still new, be aware!

  59. mace reghis says:

    i have been with GTM for years.
    ive never once had a problem with them.

    only occasionally do i get screened out. but i think they are still by far one of the better survey providers out there.

  60. Michael says:

    They send a bazillion surveys for sweepstakes entries. Of course, who knows if these “sweepstakes” are legit or not. It’s a matter of time. If you don’t do anything all day but take surveys then you might as well do these.

  61. Lee says:

    With so many companies out there, it’s easy for one to get a bad rep because of another. Global Test Market is very professional. I don’t qualify alot but I get several surveys daily. I recently did a survey that gave me an error message at the end so I contacted CS via their website Contact Form. They asked me to forward the email invitation to them but I forgot which one it was. Their rep got the survey # for me from the contact form I filled out. All was cleared up in less then a week.

  62. Stephanie says:

    I just started with Global Test Market so cannot comment on their performance. But I did look up their BBB rating and found it is an A plus at this time. They are accredited by the BBB. The Global Test Market company that earned an F from the BBB appears to be a work at home company- different than this market research company of which we are writing.

  63. Therese says:

    Hi-
    I filed my complaint with the BBB on May 12, 2010 so as soon as I hear something I will be happy to share with you. By the way the BBB has graded Global Test Market an “F”.

  64. mlynn.admin says:

    Hello Therese – Sorry to hear you have trouble with Global Test Market and thanks for posting your experience. I also had a couple of times their customer service wasn’t helpful…Do you mind updating us on the BBB complain and survey situation since you are close to 1000 points? Thanks!

  65. Therese says:

    I contacted customer service regarding a problem with a survey. The reply I received did not address my issue or demonstrate understanding of the problem. I tried twice to communicate the problem without success. I clicked on the link provided in the customer service response to rate the result and I marked it unsatisfied and marked neutral in recommending GTM to others. That same day I stopped receiving any surveys from them and haven’t received any since even though I previously received several surveys each day and they don’t respond to any of my emails. What really gets me is that I was so close to reaching the 1000 points to cash out. Beware of this company.

    I also filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. Also, the BBB logo that Global Test Market has posted on their website appears to be illegitimate.

    There are also plenty of complaints regarding this company posted here:
    http://www.surveypolice.com/globaltestmarket

  66. Nathan Flaminio says:

    I recently got over the 1000 point mark, but still have not gotten paid. I can’t log into my account (it seems to be non-existent), and I’ve sent two e-mails to Global Test Market that have not been responded to. It’s been a week, and It doesn’t look like they have any intention at all to pay me. As far as I’m concerned we had a contract, and I fulfilled my part of that contract by completing enough surveys to get to 1000 Market Points. I have just filed a complaint with the BBB.

  67. V. Phillipps says:

    Global test used to be agreat survey site, now they seem like con merchants. When completing a survey that is supposed to get you points you just get sweepstake entries. When you complain they say you screened out.When you have taken 30 minutes to do the survey that isn’t being screened out. How will I ever get the last 90 points I need to claim my money.

  68. Inez says:

    For the last month or so, the only surveys I get are to join GTM or sign up for lightspeed.
    It wastes my time and I don’t get survey to do. I already belong to lightspeeed.

  69. straycat says:

    I was with them for a couple of years. In the beginning they were great and over time they started changing. When they stopped awarding 5 pts for failure to complete the survey and then add sweepstakes came, I got fed up.
    I logged in and asked to opt out. I had to search long and hard for a link but I finally
    found it. After clicking on to it, thats when it got weard. They demanded to know why I was leaving? So I explained and submitted
    my answer. Well then they took me to another page and wanted more information. At that point I was willing to say what ever just to get finished.
    Once I finally did everything they asked me to do I read that I would be receiving an
    email and thats the only way I could opt out was to click that email link. (I’m thinking this is nuts!)
    So the email came right away, so right after clicking the email with in about 3 seconds my software told me it just got rid of a TROJAN. I said to my self why you SOB……………I guess they didn’t want me to quite?? So beware of opt out and make sure your computer is protected because they
    will turn it into junk………

  70. cocoabella says:

    I just recently got an invitation from Global Test Market, to take a survey, and was to receive 35 Market points for my time. I completed the survey. At the end of the survey, I got a screen which said

  72. mlynn says:

    [quote name=Catherine]I[/quote]Hi Catherine, I understand your point about Global Test Market – they have made some changes lately. I will give it a little bit more time before adjusting my ratings on them.

  73. Esther says:

    I am not happy with GTM I cashed out my points at the en of OCTOBER and I have not receive my check yet, also I have noticed to since I cashed out I don’t get as many pay surveys most of them are sweepstakes. :sad:

  74. DIERIGJ says:

    :sad: I had posted a comment on their blog site over a week ago and it stayed unposted. I checked it today and it was removed and not answered……. My question was why the change to sweepstakes and no more 5 points for disqualifying. I’ll be an even older man when I reach the next 1000 points!

  75. Lee says:

    Of the last 10 surveys I’ve rec’d, 7 were for sweeps and I didn’t qualify for the others. This is why I don’t do sweeps only. Why pay if we’re willing to do for free? Unless a sweeps only is less than 10 minutes and I think it may lead to something bigger, I don’t bother.

  76. LeaF says:

    Used to be one of my best.Previously no sweeps & 5 points if not qualified. Now most surveys are sweeps & no longer getting 5 points for each survey if not qualified. Previously easy to reach $50 payout but wish they would now lower payout necessary because much more difficult to reach. Rewards are less. Also OTX surveys which I delete immediately.

  77. Golgotha says:

    I receive a lot of surveys from them. But mainly for Sweeps and when I do get a survey I seldom qualify. I’m starting to delete the ones that are for sweeps. I cashed out at the end of Sept. and received the check this week.

  78. Velda Smith says:

    I been doing surveys for GTMs for over a month now. I never qualify for any of them. Im have got very many points. I been with them over a month only have 35 points. I’m not making any money like that. I haven’t been happy with them. I feel frustraded. I like doing surveys i wasn’t getting that many i seem i never qualify. Velda

  79. mlynn.admin says:

    I have received both drawing and points surveys recently, but every time I try to take the points surveys, it says survey was closed. :sad: I guess I wasn’t fast enough!

  80. hidingsomething says:

    I remember getting some vague email from GTM earlier this year, announcing a multi-incentive program.

    Their multi-incentive program is a bit frustrating because I’m 40 points away from a cashout, but haven’t qualified for a points survey since 10/23. I’ve received 20 surveys since then – 10 of them sweepstakes.

  81. mlynn.admin says:

    I also noticed that DIERIGJ…Hopefully they still have cash/points surveys and you have to take it as soon as you get the invite.

  82. DIERIGJ says:

    :confused: GTM has been one of my top sites for some time now. I have been able to cashout over $500.00 over the last 4 years with them. Over the last month or so, many of the surveys that are coming from them only are offering a "Sweepstakes entry". I have had a few with points, but not as many as I use to. Does anyone know what has changed with them? I have not seen any notices on their website. Thanks..!

  83. Velda says:

    I like taking surveys i wish i can qualify for more surveys. I know you got Global test market as 5 star. I haven’t got that many surveys. I be more patient with them. I hope I do get more surveys in the future. Thank You.. Sign:Velda

  84. mlynn.admin says:

    Hi Velda, I rated Global Test Market 5 star due to the fact 1. they have a LOT of surveys and 2. you can accumulate points quickly even if you disqualify since you get 5 points just for trying, 3. of course they always pay!

  85. Velda says:

    :-? : I don’t think this is 5 star every time i get surveys then they say i don’t qualify for any of them. Im not happy with them i would give them 3 star. Is this really a good site? Thank You.. Velda

  86. kbennette200 says:

    I’ve been a member for GTM for a while and they’ve always been good to me. It doesn’t take long to reach 1000 points, and I probably only qualify for 20-25% of their surveys.

  87. Jennifer Waggoner says:

    Can anyone please let me know if they recently cashed out and did not receive a reward confirmation email?

    :sad: I do not like this site. I filled out their profiles, got points for that, finally got a survey. Didn’t qualify for it, but was directed to other surveys for which I didn’t qualify. Finally got one I qualified for, but never got points. Wrote to them & it took forever to get a reply– they wrote that the problem was marked as solved, which it was not. When I re-checked the website, I lost the profile points. Finally I removed myself from their list.

    Hi Kathy,

    I would suggest you fill some of their “profile surveys”.. check out my “Paid Survey Tips” thread at the message board regarding filling profiles.

  90. Kathy says:

    Hi,
    I have been a member for 3 days now, and have not received a thing. I have received a confirmation email, so I know it’s not going into spam. Should I just be more patient? Thanks

  91. Mei says:

    Hi Lisa, can you try use a different browser? If nothing works, I would send GTM an email, maybe it’s something on their side.

  92. Lisa says:

    I am trying to take a survey. I just got the e-mail but every time I click to take the survey a blank page pops up. I even allowed pop-ups from this site. Any suggestions?

  93. John D. says:

    :-) I love GTM! I would log into your account and check the bottom of the page. There are usually current surveys available to you once you log in. Surveys do go very quickly due to them being such a great site to work with. I’ve collected almost $500.00 over the last few years with them.
    They are one site I log into daily to check for open surveys.

    update for me. I’m pleased with Global. I had to double check, but ya, I got accepted on 1/23/09. Today, eight days later, I’m up to 200 points. Thats not bad, I’m already 20 percent towards a payout request in just over one week! So, THANKS for your recommendations!!

  95. medicswife2002 says:

    well, I was successful with the registration finally, that was by signing up with my secondary email. I have only so far done a few of those profile surveys but to my suprise I got an invite tonight.

    That has to be the STRANGEST survey I’ve EVER gotten lol!

    It was called brain squeezer. It was a series of tricky questions and things to test my creativity. I swear I was so stumped on a few answers I actually left them blank.

    I have no idea if I got credit on the survey site at all lol. I think so, yeah, I guess I did (see my brain broke after that survey)…cause I can see right now that I got 20 whole whopping points after I finished it.

    Thats okay, because in my experiences, I’ve noticed its more than likely that initially I’ll get small incentive invites and with enough completions I’ll begin to get more and higher ones.

    Oh, and I understand about the rule of one per household. I plan to NEVER attempt to log back in to there under that first account I had (It won’t work anyways plus the lady never wrote me back at all after I asked to reactive that one).

    So, I’ll get over there and do more profile surveys and wait around for more to come.

    Thanks again for this site, you are now part of my daily routine and since you advised me to get enrolled in all 100 of your suggestions, I’ve been diligently adding at least one new registration a day, usually two.

    I really appreciate this site.

    Hi Lisa and Brent,

    Sorry to hear you have problems with GTM..My experience with them have been good so far, but I do have a couple of suggestions re them:

    1. Make sure only one member in your household sign up with them, if you have more than one it could cause trouble;

    2. Make sure don’t rush through their surveys and take your time – I recall sawing someone complained about not getting credit because of GMT “accued” him taking the surveys too fast…(I mentioned this tip in my Paid Survey Tip thread at the message board..)

    Anyway, this is so far I can think of…Hope it helps.

    Hello all;Ive been with GTM for
    quite some time. I read all of the message’s and It sounds like I’m not the only one having problems. They do pay but I have problems with getting credit for all of my surveys. They never give me the answer to the question. They just sugar coat it and it
    never gets fixed. But I’m not
    one to give up. I wish they would acknowledge the earning
    at the end of each survey. That
    makes to much sence though. I
    wouldn’t want to be with out them. It seems like they have slowed sence Christmas….

  98. medicswife2002 says:

    This site is baffling to me. I saw your recommendation and clicked the link and attempted to register but it told me I was already registered. So, okay, no prob. I tried to log in and apparantly didn’t have the correct log in info so I clicked to please send reminder.

    I did that and it obviously recognized my primary email because it said my pw was on its way!

    So, I get the reminder email go and click on to log on and dang if it isn’t STILL telling me ‘wrong info’ on existing account.

    So, I clicked CS and popped off a nice email asking about problems logging in.

    I get an email back – here it is:

    Dear Mrs.Castle,

    According to our records, your account was not in compliance with the
    User Agreement, notably Section 3.

    MarketPoints expire three years from the date of award and, if sooner,
    upon twelve (12) months of no account activity.

    GlobalTestMarket reserves the right to terminate any account suspected
    of User Agreement violations and further forfeit all MarketPoints
    earned from said account.

    Best Regards,
    Tomislava Recheva
    Customer Service

    So, I was like HUH? I looked up section 3 and its about not logging in, just like what she wrote. So, I emailed back again and apologized and asked if I could ‘PLEASE’ be back in the system since I’m organized and really want to join, etc.

    I haven’t heard back one word sinced then.

    Geez, lol, I feel so unwanted! :roll:

    So, I guess I have no choice but to re-register with my secondary email which I really wanted to avoid since I hardly ever go there, but I will I suppose.

    I’ll update you on my progress if they don’t send the cops out after I retry lolol :D

  99. Meyya says:

    I have joined for about 5 days and i have finished all the profile questions, i have checked my mail, even the junk, but i still don’t have any surveys, when do they come
    is there a solution????
    thanks

  100. Charee says:

    I love Globaltestmarket! It seems like 1000 points is a high amount for minimum payout, but it doesn’t take long to get there! I cashed out near end of October and just received my check today, during this time period I earned enough points to cash out again!! The only issue is I have some technical errors with their surveys, sometimes when I take a survey it isn’t recordeds as complete. I was able to resolve this issues with member support, so I received credit for those surveys. Overall, its a good site, and you can earn alot of cash.

  101. monpay says:

    i cannot receive any point

  102. Golgotha says:

    This site is in my top 5 best. I’m almost at the payout amount. :-)

  103. Mei says:

    I don’t think so. :sigh:

  104. Revirrim says:

    do they offer money sending by PayPal?

  105. Leaf says:

    Pays well (5cents a point), average survey 250 points, $50 payout not difficult to reach. Excellent customer service. They are having a problem on their web with itemized lists of completed surveys but they are working on it. Also are starting to have OTX surveys which I do not like. Other than this a great survey company. One of my best.

  106. Mei says:

    Hi amirul,

    Log in to your account, and fill out those profile surveys.

    Also making sure their emails don’t go to your junk folder.

    Good luck!

  107. amirul says:

    hi,
    why did i didnt get any survey yet?i had join them since a week ago.. :cry:

  108. Gretta says:

    Hi,
    I am having a hard time entering their codes even thought i entered them correctly but there’s still no luck or there’s no successful message appearing.
    How can you help me about this? :-?

  109. wood says:

    well atleast they do pay out. the last survey website i used had a minimum of $75 but it takes only 30 mins to get that but you get no money from them

  110. jeffd150 says:

    so $50 is the minimum cashout, then? they give you $5 for filling out the profile surveys, which take about an hour…seems like $50 min is fairly steep… is this typical of survey sites, usually the gpt are about $30 and pincone sends out $3 at a time?

  111. Mei says:

    Hi Stephanie,

    I don’t qualify many of their surveys either. Just be patient, especially if you just started taking surveys. Also even you don’t qualify, you still get 5 points so I always take their surveys, and the points adds up quickly.

  112. Stephanie says:

    I am having a hard time taking the surveys. I never meet the requierments. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  113. Mei says:

    Hi Amber,

    I know what you are talking about – it happened to me too and I have heard other people compain about it as well.

    You got to take the surveys immediately after receive the invite email. One thing I do is I have a Yahoo message to alert me new survey emails and if I see GTM’s surveys, I will take it right away. Hope it helps!

  114. Amber says:

    :sad: :cry: :-? This site has not allowed me to take any of the surveys I have been invited to. Everytime I receive an invitation and click on the link, it says it’s closed. This is even on invitations sent the same day!
