My Experience:
Lightpseed Research has LOT of surveys. I receive several surveys a week from Lightspeed. Most surveys offer 75 – 500 points. Surveys generally are interesting and points add up pretty quickly. I also have done product tests and interactive surveys/online focus groups (which offer 1000 points and more) for them from time to time, and never have any problems with payment.

Other Notes
1. Lightspeed sends survey invite emails to members, and members also can check available surveys after logging into their accounts. One thing you need to pay attention to is that once you start a survey, you need to finish it in one setting, otherwise you wil not be able to take the survey again.

2. According to “Points Official Rules” on Lightspeed Research website, Lightspeed Points expire after two years (Panelists must use the points within two years).

“Lightspeed Points are non-negotiable and may only be redeemed through Lightspeed in exchange for Rewards. Once a Panelist redeems Lightspeed Points, the appropriate number of Lightspeed Points will be deducted from the Panelist’s account. Any Lightspeed Points that are not redeemed within two (2) years after such Lightspeed Points were posted to Panelist’s account will expire and no longer be valid. Lightspeed reserves the right to modify at any time the number of Lightspeed Points required to redeem any item or to participate in any activity.”

So please make sure cash out as soon as possible and if you want to cash out after accumulating certain amount of points, it will be wise that you don’t let your lightspeed points sit in your account for too long.

3.
Lightspeed has a number you can call: 1-877-839-5030 if you don’t get response after emailing them. Here is a tip I “borrowed” from one of our members (who posted this on anther forum): after the call get through, press “0” so that you can be directed to the operator. Once you get to the operator, tell him/her your problem and he/she will direct you to the appropriate person that can help you. Be sure to have the survey number with you when you call.

Lightspeed Research Surveys is a great online paid surveys panel, and I recommend it!
