Global Test Market rewards panel members with MarketPoints for majority of the surveys. Once members reach 1,000 MarketPoints, you can redeem your balance for $50 U.S. dollars.
Update: Global Test Market will introduce a new reward program in the near future. According to GTM’s blog, “This program will offer you opportunities that go beyond incentive checks. Soon, you will be able to redeem your MarketPoints against a payment with PayPal or check cards, or exchange for merchandise or gift cards, you’ll even be able to select and send a gift to a friend. Last but not least, starting next month, we will also introduce a sweepstakes program.”

My Experience (Updated December 2011)
Global Test Market is definitely one of my favorite online paid survey sites. Here is why:
1. GlobalTestMarket sends TONs of paid surveys, I receive 3-4 surveys invite emails almost daily, there are always a long list of surveys waiting for you if you log into your account.
2. GlobalTestMarket rewards members market points for completing their online surveys, usually each survey worth 30 – 60 market points, and each market points worth 5 US cents. They no longer award 5 points if you disqualify for a survey (which is a little disappointment), but they do pay for majority of the surveys (means offer points not just sweepstakes entries).
3. GlobalTestMarket does require members have 1000 market points to request payout. However, since you have lot of surveys opportunities, points add up quickly.
4. GlobaTestMarket does pay! – I never have any problems getting paid by them. You might need to wait 4-6 weeks for the check to arrive, but that’s normal.
5. GlobalTestMarket also has high paying surveys and paid focus groups opportunities, usually at least pay $30 (600 points).
6. GlobalTestMarket accepts members worldwide!
GlobalTestMarket is one of the best online paid survey companies, and I highly recommend it!
