If you like to earn by taking paid surveys, you have likely heard of LifePoints as it is advertised in many places online.
But is LifePoinst legit and worth your time or a scam?
I decided to check it out for myself and see what it really offers.
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 an inside look so you know exactly what to expect before you join.
- Option 1 – LifePoints surveys
- Option 2 – Participate in free contests
- Option 3 – Blog posts and updates
- Option 4 – Joining bonus
What is LifePoints Panel and what does the site offer?
In one sense LifePoints Panel is a fairly new survey site. But in another sense, it has actually been around for years.
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 and is now called LifePoints.
Below I will go over both the potential the site has as a member but 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:

So let's start by going over what you get as a member of the LifePoints Panel and the options you have.
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
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. This is not something you have to log in to participate in. The contests will be announced on the international LifePoints Panel Facebook page.
Usually, it will be an image posted with a very short and easy question as you can see in the image above. If you do not know the answer, you can quickly find it through Google – or just look at the other answers people give in the comment section:-)
In my experience, these contests used to be available around once per week but has become more rare. The reward is usually a $30 Amazon voucher.
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 – Blog posts and updates
You do not really get access to anything else than the surveys on the LifePoints platform itself.
Not that this is a bad thing as it makes it very simple and easy to use. But just so you know that it does not have any other ways of earning at the moment of writing this review on the platform itself.
But as mentioned, you can get a chance to win if you participate in free contests on their Facebook page.
There is, however, one thing more you can find as a member on the website itself. LifePoints advertise on the website you become a part of a community.
I would say this might be stretching it. What you get access to is different blog posts and updates on your dashboard.
These can be very interesting and helpful at times as this is also where you can see updates about the platform.
I would not really call it a community, but maybe it is the plan for them to develop it into this – only time can tell. But it is still a good place to keep an eye out for important updates about the platform.
Option 4 – 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.

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 1250 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 starts at around 725 points for a few gift cards. But for PayPal, the payout threshold is 1100 points which will give you around $15.
So 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 it 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.

I have been using Lifepoints on and off for more than a year and successfully redeemed more than a $100 worth of PayPal cash and gift cards. On July 18, I attempted logging in but received a “Sorry, your membership is temporarily unavailable. Please contact our Help Center for support” message. So I e-mailed, and after waiting a day, got an e-mail back saying I “violated the point rules” and my “account had been terminated and points have been forfeited.” I responded asking why – to my knowledge I’ve done nothing wrong and always answered the surveys honestly and never used a bot – and was told the case was escalated but my account will remain closed. They never told me why my account was closed or what my alleged violation was.
So I would recommend using another survey app, lest you get too deep into this one and randomly lose your account someday for some reason they never bother to tell you. Survey Junkie works pretty well.
Sorry to hear that, but thanks for sharing your experiences.
