MySoapBox Review

This post is my MySoapBox Review – I have been a member of MySoapBox survey panel for over 3 years and have been paid!

MySoapBox Survey Panel

MySoapBox is an online paid survey community that rewards members for expressing their opinions through participating in market research surveys and activities.

Is MySoapBox Legitimate or Scam?

MySoapBox panel was established and operated by SoapBoxSample, a member of the Interview Service of America (ISA) family. It is definitely a legitimate paid survey panel. Personally I was a member of ClickIQ, and my ClickIQ account (with all my earnings) was transferred to MySoapBox in 2014. So I have been a member of MySoapBox for about 5 years and have been paid many times!

Who can Join MySoapBox panel?

  • Minimum Age Requirement: over the age of 13
  • Can provide a valid mailing address and email address
  • Live in United States of America
  • Each individual may only have one account
  • Other people in the same household can join

What are the MySoapBox Survey Rewards – how to get paid?

MySoapBox members earn points for participating in different activities, mainly online surveys. Once you have accumulated 25,000 points ($25), you can redeem your points for a wide selection of electronic gift cards, such as amazon gift cards, Walmart, Target, iTune gift cards etc.

After you reach your initial 25,000 point threshold, there is no minimum to redeem so long as you have enough points to cash in for one of gift cards, starting at 500 points for $5 amazon (and other) gift cards.

Survey Frequency, points etc

MySoapBox sends a good number of surveys. I receive their survey invitation emails almost every day. In the survey invite email, they clearly indicate the survey number, points and estimated length of the survey. You can also log into your account and see if there are any survey opportunities. I have noticed that sometimes the surveys listed in your account only show survey number, so I usually pay attention to the survey emails and start taking surveys using the links within the emails.

MySoapBox surveys usually worth 500 points to 1500 points and last 5 minutes – 20 minutes. The points are about average compare to other survey sites. I only take surveys that are need 15 minutes or less, so for me, their surveys are easy to do most of the time. They will credit your account 10 points if you disqualify for a survey.

MySoapBox also has good paying product testing surveys and sometimes high paying online discussion boards (focus group) opportunities. Occasionally they have online surveys for kids and teenagers.

MySoapbox Survey payment

Shortly after my account at ClickIQ was transitioned to MySoapBox, I had enough points (25000) to cash out the first time for $25 amazon gift card. The process was quick and easy. And after that, since there was no minimum threshold requirement, I have redeemed my points many times, all for amazon gift cards. It took about one week to receive my e-gift card since the cash out request. Following is a partial screen shot of my recent MySoapBox amazon gift card payment.

MySoapBox member care/support is good and responsive. I have contacted support once inquiring payment status, and received their response the same day, and received the payment in 2 days!

  1. Hi MeiL, thanks for responding. I don’t know exactly who you are and it is nice to finally hear a real person. But I can guarantee that the amount of points I have are well in excess of 25K for a gift certificate and have been trying without success. Do you know why my point button remains gray when trying to redeem?

    • Hi Sue, I recently redeemed $25 HomeDepot gift card, so I know their redeem function works. So here is how it works: after you login, click the “REDEEM” button at the top, then you are at the reward page, and you should be able to see all the gift cards…click one of the gift cards that is “yellow”, (yellow means you have enough points to redeem that card). For example, if you have more than 25k points. many of those cards should be yellow (only the $50 cards are grey). Click one of the “yellow” button to cash out, that’s it! Hope it helps.- Mei

  2. Hi Sue, sorry to hear you are having trouble with MySoapBox! What do you mean you are unable to retrieve your points? Do you have trouble redeeming your points? You have to have at least 25,000 points the first time cash out, after that you will be able to redeem at lower amount. Hope it helps!

  3. I am a “MySoapBox survey panel member”, but I cannot trust MSB any longer. Although I have been given points, usually 500-1000 per survey (posted as late as this past weekend), I have been unable to retrieve some or all of them. Repeated requests for payment have been ignored. I am glad you had a good experience with My SoapBox. But, after seeing others’ comments, and continuing to have a bad experience with it, I can only say that My SoapBox is dishonest, a liar and a cheat.
