PointClub claims to be the best online survey site.
But is PointClub a scam or is it really the best opportunity out there, when it comes to paid surveys?
I have tested PointClub thoroughly myself, and in this PointClub review, you will get all the details about what you can expect from this site, how much money you can earn as a member, and if it is even legit, so you can easily find out, if it is the right option for you or not.
What is PointClub and what does the site offer?
PointClub has existed since 2012, so it has been around for a while. It has in a sense been around for even longer, as the site Focusline has partnered with PointClub. Focusline used to be its own survey site, and has existed since 1996. Now it is however a part of PointClub, and not its own site anymore. So in that sense PointClub is a survey site with a very long history.
Let me reveal right away that PointClub is a legit survey site. That it is legit does however not necessarily mean it is the right site for you to join. Below I will therefore go over what it has to offer, so you can see, if it is for you or not.
PointClub is also called PointClub Surveys, and as the name suggests, it is a site where the main way to earn money is by taking online surveys. It does however also offer a few other ways to boost your earnings. So let’s go over all the opportunities you have as a member.
PointClub is a pure online survey site, which means surveys are more or less the only way to earn here. This makes it very easy to use, as it does not have as many distractions as some of the Get-Paid-To sites that offer many ways to earn.
Once you are a member of PointClub and are logged in, you can right away easily see, if there are any available surveys for you. So it will not take you any time to figure out how to find the surveys.
How many surveys you will get on PointClub depends on many things – among others where you live, but also how your demographic profile fits the surveys that PointClub has at that moment. But if you live in one of the countries, where it is available (see more about this later in this review), it should usually give you a good amount.
Be aware that PointClub makes a big effort to make sure the answers they get are of high quality. So if you for example in your profile say you are having a certain income, but then in a specific survey say something else, you risk getting kicked out of that particular survey, as you are not consistent/honest.
So the best way to make sure to qualify for as many surveys as possible on PointClub is to be honest.
A great extra thing PointClub offers is a high joining bonus you get just for joining and filling out your profile info. You get 2000 points ($2) just for signing up, and then you can earn extra joining bonus by filling out some basic information about yourself and confirming your email.
In total, you will get a joining bonus of 5000 points ($5), which is a very high joining bonus and very few survey sites offer this kind of bonus. Swagbucks is one of the few other sites that offers this, so it is a great offer and a great way to kickstart your earnings on PointClub.
In total, it will take less than 5 minutes from you first join until you have the first $5 in your account.
Daily free contests:
As a member of PointClub you have the chance to participate in the daily free contest. It is a contest that is only available on Facebook.
Every day there will be a posted what is called a SuperCode on PointClub’s Facebook page. You then take this code and paste it into a box on your PointClub account.
This will enter you into the sweep, and every day 10 winners are picked randomly. The winners will receive 1,000 points into their account.
It is not a huge reward, but it is still nice extra money, and it takes very little effort to participate in, so still worth considering to check out the code and use it, if you are on Facebook anyway.
Points when you do not qualify for a survey:
PointClub offers something very few survey sites offer. You will get points even when your are screened out or disqualified from a survey.
Whenever this happens (and it will happen once in a while on all survey sites) you get 12 points into your account just for trying.
It is not a huge reward, but still something I think is great and appreciate, as it is nice you get something just for trying, and it takes away some of the frustration there can be, if you do not qualify for a survey.
Daily streak bonus:
If you are logging into your Point Club account every day, you will be able to get an extra bonus. This is called the daily streak bonus.
You start at level 1. At level 1 you will get 10% bonus on all the surveys you complete. If you login every day for 5 days, you will get to level 2, where you will get 20% bonus on all the surveys you complete. There is 10 levels in total, so if you login 100 days in a row, you will get a bonus of 100% on every survey you take.
So if you are a member, it can be a good idea to make sure to login daily, as it can give a nice extra bonus. If you miss one day, you will go back one whole level, so if you are starting to get to the higher levels, make sure to remember to login every day to keep your bonus level.
How do you get paid?
When you complete a survey on PointClub you get points into your account. These points can then be exchanged into a number of different rewards.
You can for example get paid through PayPal, prepaid Visa, get gift cards for Walmart, Uber, Target, TGI Friday’s, Sephora, and many more. In total there are more than 80 different gift cards to choose from, which is a very big amount compared to other survey sites.
Personally, I prefer survey sites that have PayPal as a payout option, as this is a great and easy way to get paid in cash, so great PointClub has this option. But it also has many other great rewards, and it is always nice when a survey site offers many options, so it is always possible to find something that fits your preferences.
When you get your points, be aware that there are what is called pending funds and approved funds.
The pending funds are points you have made, but that have not yet been approved by the company who ordered the survey. Therefore, you cannot cash these points out until theý have been approved. Approved funds are however funds that have been approved and that you can cash out.
You have to earn $25, before you can claim your rewards. This is a little high compared to many other survey sites, and in my opinion a little too high. However, as PointClub has a high joining bonus, you will still not be too far from reaching the payout threshold after you join.
How much money can you make on PointClub?
It is very difficult to say exactly how much money you can earn on PointClub. It depends very much on your specific demographic profile, the country you live in, and of course on how active you are and how many surveys you take.
One thing I can say for sure is that no matter where you live and who you are, you will not be able to make a full-time income on PointClub or on any other survey site for that matter.
But PointClub has some good options and a good amount of surveys, so you will be able to make some nice extra money on the side, and at the same time have your opinion heard.
So if you want to make some extra money online, this is a great and easy way to do it, but you should know that it will not make you a full-time income.
Can you use it on mobile?
Personally, I like the option to take surveys on my mobile, as it is a great and easy way to earn a little extra on the go and whenever I have a small break throughout the day.
Point Club does not have an app, but you can still easily use it on your mobile devices, as it is fully optimized for this.
You just go to the website on your mobile device and login from there. It is very easy to use on mobile phones as well, and as PointClub in general is easy to use and easy to navigate, it is also easy to use on smaller screens.
Who can join PointClub?
In theory, you can join PointClub no matter where you live. However, it is only worth joining, if you live in certain countries, as the amount of opportunities vary from country to country. In some countries you will not have any available surveys at all, and therefore it would not be worth joining in these cases.
PointClub in general has the most opportunities for people living in the US, but it also has good opportunities for UK, Canada, France, Brazil, Mexico, and Germany, among some others.
So if you live in one of these countries, it might be worth checking out PointClub. If you live in other countries, you can still join it to check, if there should be some opportunities for you there, but you should not expect too much in these cases.
If you live in a country where PointClub does not have any opportunities, you can instead check out the top survey sites in your country.
Can you get support?
If you need support, you can contact PointClub through a contact form on their website. It is always good to know that it is possible to get in contact with support, if you need it.
As an alternative to the contact form, you can also contact PointClub on their Facebook page. They are using their Facebook page a lot and posting more or less every day, and you can send a direct message there as well.
From what I can see, they are however not very good at getting back to people who leave comments on the Facebook posts, so if you need to get in touch with support, you should probably not do it by leaving a comment there, but instead by sending them a direct message or use the contact form on their website.
PointClub is without a doubt a legit survey site. But let’s sum up the pros and cons, so you can get a better overview before deciding whether it is the right site for you or not.
- High joining bonus
- Many survey opportunities
- Easy to use
- Great reward options
- Free to join
- Payout threshold a little too high
In general, I mostly have positive things to say about PointClub. The only not so positive thing is that the payout threshold is a little high compared to other survey sites.
But the pros make up for this, as you get a high joining bonus, it has a good amount of surveys, and it is in general an easy-to-use survey sites with an interactive and fun design. It also offers great reward options, so there will be good options no matter your preferences.
Overall definitely a site worth considering, if you live in one of the countries, where it has good opportunities. If you do not live in one of these (or if you want to join more great survey sites) you can check out my lists of the best survey sites in select countries.
