If you want to earn some extra money by taking paid surveys, you have likely heard of LifePoints Panel.
But is LifePoinst legit and worth your time, or is it a scam?
I have tested it thoroughly myself over several years, and I have compared it to the hundreds of other survey sites I have tested.
Let me reveal right away that it has potential, and you can actually earn by joining (you can see payment proof below), but it also has some unknown factors you need to consider.
In this LifePoints Panel review, you will get all the details and get an inside look so you know exactly what to expect before you join.

What is LifePoints Panel, and what does the site offer?
LifePoints Panel has been around for years, but it has just not always had this name.
The company behind is called Lightspeed and has been doing market research since 1946, which shows it has an established company behind it which is always great.
It has millions of members from all over the world (more about who can join later).
The LifePoints Panel itself is actually a merger of the two sites GlobalTestMarket and MySurvey. At the beginning of 2019, they merged into one, which is now called LifePoints.
Below I will go over both the potential the site has as a member and also some cons it has so you can get a balanced view before deciding to join or not.
I have created a video that shows you everything and gives you an inside look. You can also find all the details below the video:
Option 1 – LifePoints surveys
The LifePoints Panel is a very simple survey panel after you log in.
I do not mean this is a bad way. Sometimes the simple panels are really great because they do not have a lot of distractions and are very easy to start using.
That is also the case for LifePoints Panel.
After you sign up and confirm your email, you just have to answer a few questions and it only takes around 1 minute. Then you get access to the member area and your dashboard.
When you first join, you will likely not see any available surveys there. Do not worry about that. You will soon start receiving invitations for surveys via email.
I started receiving email invitations after around 1 day as a member. After this, you will see the available surveys when you log in.
However, you do not actually have to log into LifePoints to check for available surveys. You can just wait for the emails and then click the link there that will take you to the survey.
In the emails, you can always see the reward you will get before you start.
In my experience, the rewards for the time spent are pretty decent compared to other survey sites.
Also, even though you will likely not qualify for all the surveys you are invited for, the percentage I have been accepted for has been quite high.
And the surveys I have taken have been highly relevant and about relevant political and societal topics.
This makes them interesting, and a point to remember that is often overlooked when it comes to paid surveys is that you will actually have your opinion heard on important topics.
Just be aware that some surveys only need limited respondents, so to get the best chances of qualifying, it is a good idea not to wait too long to take the survey after you receive the invitation.
Overall, LifePoints Panel is very user-friendly, and the amount of survey invitations you get is decent, in my experience.
The exact amount, of course, depends on the country you live in, and it is also a good idea to join other sites to get enough options – especially because this is the only way to earn on LifePoints.
The LifePoints surveys can definitely be worth participating in, but you just need to be aware that there might not be options every day.
Option 2 – Participate in free contests/community tab
No doubt, the main way to earn is by taking the LifePoints surveys, but the panel also sometimes offers another chance for you to earn.
You can sometimes participate in free contests as a member.
You do not have to log in to participate, but you can find an overview of the current contests through the community tab inside the member area.
However, they will usually just link to the LifePoints Facebook page, where you need to take a certain action to participate.
It can be to answer a question, stage a friend, and similar.
No matter what, they are usually very easy to participate in.
In my experience, these contests have become more frequent compared to how previosuly, and you can usually find one around once per week. The reward is usually worth $10.
Just be aware that this is a contest based on pure luck, and there are often more than 1,000 people leaving comments and participating, so the chance of winning is not great. But as an extra chance, it can be nice to participate as it does not take long.
Option 3 – Joining bonus
There is one more way to get a bit of points on LifePoints.
You get a small joining bonus after signing up.
You get 10 points just for signing up and then 10 points for confirming your email.
So the total joining bonus will only be worth around $0.30, so not a big bonus but still nice to at least get a few points right away.
Depending on your country, you can, however, also earn extra points by taking some extra profile surveys, so they are worth keeping an eye out for.
How do you get paid?
Every time you take a LifePoints survey, you earn points.
You can then get these points paid out in various ways. There is a whole store where you can select between getting paid in cash through PayPal, gift cards, or donating to charity.
The exact rewards available will depend on the country you live in. Personally, I think it is great you have the option to get paid in cash through PayPal or get gift cards, depending on your preferences.
What can be a bit confusing is, however, exactly what your points are worth because that depends on the reward you choose.
If you want to get $15 through PayPal, it will cost you 1150 points, but if you want a gift card to IKEA for the same amount, it would cost you 1100 points (where I live).
So this makes it a bit difficult to calculate exactly how much your points are worth. But a rough average estimation would be that 10 points are approximately worth $0.15.
The payout threshold varies, depending on the country you live in. In some countries, it starts at $5, whereas in others, it is around $10.
Just be aware that your earnings will be in your local currency.
Overall, the payout threshold is not too high, but the point system can be a bit confusing at first.
I have made a short video that shows exactly how to redeem your earnings, and I also show LifePoints payment proof so you can see it actually does pay:
How much money can you make?
The big question many people have about most survey sites is how much money they can make there.
When it comes to LifePoints Panel, it is definitely a way to make a bit of extra cash on the side.
It does have a decent amount of surveys, but it will not make you more than some extra side cash.
I would say that you should definitely also make sure to join some top paying survey sites in addition to LifePoints to get enough earning opportunities.
But as LifePoints is so simple and easy to use, it can be a nice extra addition and a nice extra survey site to join, in my opinion.
Can you use it on mobile?
Yes, you can use LifePoints Panel on mobile and take surveys from there.
That makes it easy to use on the go, and it is always great when a survey site offers this option.
The LifePoints app is available for both iOS and Android devices.
But the website is also fully optimized for mobile, so you can also just use it that way from your mobile.
But to be able to participate on mobile, the most important thing is that you have access to your email, so you can check if you get a survey invitation and then click the invitation link in the email.
Who can join LifePoints Panel?
LifePoints is available in around 45 countries at the moment of writing this review. To join, you have to be 16 years or older.
The countries it is available in are:
Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States of America, Vietnam.
So as you can see, it is available in big parts of the world. And its panel is regularly expanding to new countries and has already expanded to more countries since I first started using it.
Can you get support?
It is always good to know you can get support if you should need it as a member of a survey site.
This is an area where LifePoints Panel has improved. When it first launched, I saw in other LifePoints reviews that there were some frustrations at times.
You can see an example of a review from Trustpilot that mentions this issue.
Most of the complaints I have seen are in relation to problems with the merger of GlobalTestMarket and MySurvey into LifePoints Panel and the frustrations about not getting proper help about this.
It is natural that there will be some issues when several sites merge, and there might be some issues with memberships. I think most people can understand this.
But that is by now several years ago, and they seem to have improved this aspect, and I see very few complaints like this now.
I have actually also contacted the support ones myself. I must say that I got a fairly quick reply, but it seemed more like just a standardized reply that did not really answer my question fully. Luckily, it was not a technical issue, so I could still continue using the platform.
But if you join and need help, it seems the support has improved a lot since it was first launched – just be aware that it might still take some patience to get an answer.
LifePoints Panel is a legit survey site with long-lasting companies behind it. I have been paid by it several times myself.
But that does not mean it will be the right site for you. It definitely has both pros and cons so let's finish by summing these up so you can get a better overview before deciding to join or not.
- Free to join
- Easy to use
- Good payout methods
- Decent rewards in relation to time
- Support is slow at times
Overall, I think LifePoints Panel can be a great extra survey site to join.
In my experience, it is very easy to use, gives decent rewards, and has good payout methods.
I do not think you should join it as the only site, as that would give you too few surveys. But as one of your chosen sites, it can be an easy way to get access to surveys.
