My Review of MySurvey.com Panel
MySurvey.com is one of early survey sites I joined and it’s has remained as a quality survey panel over the years.
1. They have many surveys for panel members, they also have great product testing opportunities. MySurvey seems to have lot of surveys and product testings for babies and new moms. After Lightspeed bought MySurvey, they also have movie trailers and new advertising surveys which are easy to qualify and quite interesting.
2. I have never experienced any technical problems while taking their surveys. MySurvey hosts surveys themselves, and their system works well.
3. Compensation for surveys are fair – you earn 5 points (used to be 10 points) just for screeners which means even if you don’t qualify for the survey, you will get paid 5 points for your time. This is a lot better than many other survey sites that you get nothing if you don’t qualify for a survey. I also like the fact that they credit your account immediately after you complete a survey (which mean you don’t have to wait to get credits.)
4. MySurvey offers good and responsive member support – I have contacted them several times regarding survey credit and login problems, they always replied and helped me resolved the issues quickly. (MySurvey’s support is much better than Lightspeed Research in my opinion.)
5. MySurvey pay members pretty fast, usually within a month of cash-out. If you redeem Amazon gift certificate, you will receive the payment almost instantly. Below is an Amazon gift certificate/code (image) MySurvey paid me a little while ago (click the image to enlarge).
7. Members can refer friends to join NFO MySurvey Panel and get 150 points for each referral.
8. MySurvey has a good member account “central” interface where members can check their available surveys (members can take their surveys from there), survey history and points, and redeem for rewards. The member “central” is clear and user friendly.
Conclusion: Do you recomend MySurvey.com?
