LifePoints Panel Review + Rating (A Balanced Inside Look)

Lifepoints Panel Rating


LifePoints Panel is easy to use and has a good number of available surveys in 50+ countries. You can get paid in cash or via gift cards.

LifePoints is a fairly new paid survey site and it is advertised many places online.

But is LifePoinst a scam or is it a legit site worth your time?

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, but it also has some unknown factors you need to consider.

In this LifePoints Panel review, I will give you all the details and an inside look so you can see what it really offers before you join.

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.

It has existed for a while as the LifePoints App, but that has been discontinued after the LifePoints Panel website was launched with a new concept. It already has more than 5,000,000 members from all over the world.

LifePoints 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.

It is a new site and is different from the two sites that merged in some ways but in many ways, it is also a lot the same.

So if you know those two sites, LifePoints might seem familiar to you.

Since it is a fairly new site and a lot has been going on through the merger, it seems like there are some small glitches here and there.

It might just be because it is new – we will not know yet but I will keep an eye on it and update this review accordingly.

Below I will, therefore, 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 members 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.

lifepoints surveys examples
You can see the available LifePoints Surveys on your dashboard or just wait to receive the email invitations.

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 is 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 to 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 panle also offers one more chance for you to earn.

You can regularly participate in free contests as a member. This is not somethign you have to log in to participate in. The contests will be announced on the international LifePoints Panel Facebook page.

lifepoints contest example
You can participate in free contests on the LifePoints 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 – ot just look at the other answers people give in the comment section:-)

In my experience, these contests will be available around once per week and the rewards 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 there chance of winning are not great. But as an extra chance, it can be nice to participate in 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.

lifepoints community icon
There is not so much a community yet even though it is advertised.

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 donate to charity.

lifepoints rewards examples
There are some good payout options on LifePoints.

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 is 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?

mobile with lifepoints panel website

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.

As mentioned earlier, LifePoints used to just be an app, but after the LifePoints Panel website was launched, the app is not available anymore.

That is not a big problem though as the website is fully optimized for mobile so it is easy to use on mobile – even on smaller screens.

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 40 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, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, 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.

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 I am not too excited about LifePoints Panel yet. And from what I can see in other LifePoints reviews, there are some frustrations from some other members about this at times.

You can see an example of a review from Trustpilot that mentions this issue.

lifepoints review on trustpilot
There are some complaints about poor support.

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 from what I have seen, the LifePoints support could have handled it better.

I have actually contacted them 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.

From this answer, it could seem that the support is very busy here in relation to the merger, and we can then hope this will improve over time.

But if you join and need help, just be aware that it might take some patience and several emails from you to them to get an answer.

Final verdict

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.

pros

Pros:

  • Free to join
  • Easy to use
  • Good payout methods
  • Decent rewards in relation to time
cons

Cons:

  • Some technical issues in relation to the merger have been reported
  • Support is slow at times

Overall, I think LifePoints Panel can be a great extra survey site to join.

It has fairly recently been through a merger and therefore there seem to be a few issues at times. But, 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.

How to join LifePoints Panel?

It is very easy to join LifePoints Panel. You just click the button below, choose your country, and you will then be taken to a short sign-up form.

Remember you need to confirm your email to get access to the surveys. You will get bonus points both for joining and for confirming your email.

If you have any comments, questions, or have any experiences with LifePoints Panel yourself, I would love to hear from you in a comment below.

    • using VPN on survey and Get-Paid-To sites is fraud and you hurt a lot of people and businesses by doing this. Also, most sites have strict security so they will find out when you use VPN and they will block you and you will lose your earnings. So if you want to use these sites, you have to do it honestly and stick to sites that are available in your country. You can see the best worldwide sites here.

  3. Hey Mikael! I tried to join lifepoints panel through your affiliate link & after selecting my country India, it first showed me 127.0.0.1 connection error & after trying for a few minutes the above error went, but now it is redirecting me to another link.
    XXXXXXXXXx
    This is the link.
    Some Millionaire scam.

    Could you please look into the signup link for India?

    Reply
    • Thanks for making me aware if this. I think it might be because the affiliate link is not working anymore and then it is for some reason set to redirect to another site that I definitely do not want to promote. Not great – sorry about that. I will look into this right away and get rid of the link.

      Thanks again for making me aware of this.

  5. I signed up for the live point but after a few working hours the membership has been canceled. After I signed up with another email, I was not made a new member.

    • did you use VPN or anything like that to make it look like you are from a country where you do not live? Because that is fraud and they will block your account if you do this.

      And it is not possible to just create a new account – they have blocked you because they believe you do not live up to their terms and creating a new account will not help. That also goes against their terms.

  6. I have been locked out of my account. They told me I exited out. That is bull, why would I do that and not use my points first? They said I would need another email address to get my points reinstated! That is crap and told them so. Get an IT department that knows what they are doing. Since the merger there have been several problems with peoples accounts. We think this company is scaming the points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Reply
    • Sorry to hear that Jerry. But thanks for sharing your experiences.

      Did you try to use another email to get your points reinstated even though it is, of course, annoying having to do that? Hope you will be able to get your points soon.

  7. Joined life points 3 months ago after reading ur review, it was good for first 2 months, but past month has been really tough, no surveys to do, giving only 25 points surveys, two weeks ago i completed a survey and earned 100 points which they deleted claiming they were wrongly added so they i don’t reach payout, they replied we will look in to it in 5-7 days but nothing happened, in short this site is slowly and gradually moving to be a scam,i’ll rate it 2 stars

    • Sorry tp hear that Dinesh. If you did not hear back from their support again, I would definitely suggest to write them again.

      Thanks for sharing your experience and hope they sort it out for you soon.

  8. Hello, recently I have been having a problem and it is that my surveys do not load and automatically say that I do not qualify, this happens with all the surveys since September 26, I want to know if someone else has been presenting this problem

    Reply
    • I have not experienced anything like that Michael. Just completed a survey through LifePoints today. Hopefully it will soon start working for you again – if not, it might be worth writing their support.

      Keep me updated about how it goes.

  9. Well, after numerous emails, and tickets, (and i mean NUMEROUS), Requesting my points for 3 large diarys, including a home study, from November 2018, I have finally been compensated with the points. Now, I am still doing surveys with them, but I note everything now, and still not happy completely with them, in fact, i finally told them to just close the tickets and keep the points. I have had a couple issues recently and they in fact have responded and taken care of. I am sorry to hear others have had issues. But their are alot of survey websites that are legit that you can go to , so do not get disappointed and just move to another. I wish all of you luck, and thank you Mickael for all you do. Darlene

    • Great to hear you finally got your rewards Darlene. And thanks for sharing so many of your experiences here with the rest of us.

      • yes lifepoints paid for some past diaries, but it has been a nightmare, different answers from different support employeees, and still owe me for a couple more, but i just told them, keep it, im not sending anymore tickets, and i just stopped doing diaries, they do not pay when they are supposed to and give you the amount that the email says, just easier and less stress to forget the diaries, too many other companies that handle business much smoother.

        Reply
        • Thanks for the update about this Darlene. I have not had any problems with them at all. But I have also only been doing regular surveys and not done any diaries. But with your experience with them, I definitely understand you focus on some of the many other options instead.

  10. I too, have been locked out of my account. It took weeks for them to reply, I was told my membership was cancelled. I was told I probably cancelled it by mistake. I did everything I was told to get my account up and runing by registering under a different email address with the promise of transferring my existing points worth $25.00. Now my new account is temporarily closed. I signed in once to check on the account and bam, no more. I’ve sent 2 emails pleaing to open my account and nothing. I don’t think the company wants to pay out points.

  11. Similar to the above, I was a member of MySurveys which became LifePoints, and while the graphics and colors are ‘new and improved’, the perform of the website and customer support is no better than before, and in several ways worse.

    At any given time I will have 6 to 10 surveys in my “Ongoing Surveys” box, but at best only one of them will be an actual ‘Ongoing’ survey. The others will be surveys which did not open, surveys which froze while I was working on them, or surveys which I completed but did not receive points for. If I submit a “Help” request either through their ‘Chat’ function, which is seldom active, or through their “Help” button, the first reply is seemingly grabbed randomly from a list of potential answers. So if I say “I completed survey #xxxxxx and was not credited with my 100 points” the reply might be “Don’t be discouraged, you’ll have an opportunity to complete another survey soon” or “Sometimes surveys have a limited number of respondents, next time be more prompt in responding to the email invite you receive”.

    Frustrating.

        • All my responses are 100% manually added by myself.

          If people have any questions or anything I can help with, I will do my best to answer. But if there is not much I can say or help with, I will just approve the comment and thanking for sharing the experience as I think it is important people can see other experiences as well. If you look around my site, I am sure you will see I give a lot of very personal responses whenever people ask questions or need help.

      • There used to be an app that was called LifePoints app – that does not exist anymore but the website itself is working as it was just launched earlier in 2019. So it is true the app does not exist but it is still possible to use the website itself on mobile just without an app.

  12. Membership just got cancelled and I lost my points! I have messaged them continually as I can log in, read stories, but when I click on “START” a survey I always get “router cint refused to connect” I always got an automated reply, and absolutley no help for the past 2 months. Many people have said exactly the same and their accounts have been suspended. Shame on Lifepoints!

  13. I have had issues with support myself as I am still awaiting payment from November last year, I get different messages from I will see the payment in 6 to 8 weeks, to I will see payment next week, and have yet to receive. and then they want to close your support ticket by just a reply from them which I’m not gonna rate the ticket because it is not solved yet, (just by them replying) is not solved.

    Reply
    • Sorry to hear you are still having problems with this. This is the issue from when it was MySurveys, right?

      Really hope they will solve it for you soon.

      Reply
      • yes it is, and another thing now, you are right in the middle of surveys and the site times out, but they are for the most point decent paying surveys and not that difficult so i take the good with the bad. another feature, you cannot see the survey number anymore in the history, only lists the date and the points, (redeemed or earned), you have to write that down immediately so you can keep track. The best advice i can say is write down EVERYTHING with lifepoints and screenshot as well, and then…just hope they reply and actually FIX the issue within 9 months
