Hi friends, I am sure all of you who earn from taking surveys must be aware of this site. It took me more than a year to reach 1000 market points here and at last I was able to reach the amount and request for a check. I got 1020 market points in my account,in fact. Since I am outside the U.S. it will take 6-8 weeks for the check delivery but nevertheless,I am now breathing a sigh of relief. Most of the surveys they sent told me I am not eligible and I got screened out of them. There were very few surveys too though it was fun taking them. The frequency of surveys is rather low but then this is a legitimate survey site and has been in business for so many years so I was patient,and waited to reach my goal!I have heard that they convert 1000 market points to $50 but if any of you know what a higher amount (as in my case - 1020) will be converted to,please do let me know. For all those of you who are members,how has your overall experience been with this site? I think taking the surveys was fun and I would not mind stating all over again and continue for a year to reach another payout!

believe me, its the best survey site I have ever come across. Till now, I recvd more than 200USD by taking surveys and I have more 150 points at this moment. They pay 0.05 per point. So you will recieve 51USD in your local currency by cheque. Its gr8.

I did not know that so I am grateful to you for letting me know.The frequency of surveys is low definitely.May be that has to do with my country of location or my profile itself.Nonetheless I am all set to start all over again at this site.I hope you will continue to earn from this site as you are doing.Happy surveying.

no the frequency is low. Because its genuine. When they get surveys from companies, then only we are asked to participate. I get around 1-2 surveys a month but sometimes more than 3. But beleive me its gr8. I purchased so many things from their cheque. Thanks to gtm.

Yes they are a legitimate site and I know they can only send surveys when they get clients.I also get around 2-3 surveys a month and I am satisfied with sharing my opinion in those if I am eligible.I hope many more checks come your way and you can buy many of your favorite things with the money.I am eagerly waiting for mine too though it is too early for me to decide what I am going to do with the money.Let me lay hands on it first!Good luck and take care.

Hi, It took me over a year to reach 1000 market points.The minimum amount for requesting a check is 1000 points.Once you reach that,these points will be converted to a total of $50 which will take 6-8 weeks to deliver to you if you are outside the U.S.The surveys are not very frequent and some will tell you that you are ineligible but nevertheless,this site pays you 5 market points even if you are screened out of a particular survey.I would suggest that if you like taking surveys and sharing your opinion and moreover,if you are willing to wait for over a year,you can opt for Global Test Market since it is a legitimate site. Happy Mylotting.

Hi, Since you are from Canada you must be getting many survey invitations from Global test market.And therefore your balance builds up faster.The best thing about this site is that even if we are not eligible for a survey they award 5 market points which is really generous of them.I hope you make a lot of money from this site and others. Have a great day!

Never heard that they send checks of that amount.The minimum payout is $50 which means 1000 market points.Anyway I think you have mixed it up. Happy mylotting.

From my knowledge, I believe they stated they round it off. In otherwords you'll receive $50 and the other points(20) will stay in your account to gather up to reach a payout again later. I could be wrong on that, though. In general, I did really great with Global Test Market in the first monthish almost pushing $25 then from there.. not so much. The surveys seemed to stop coming in such force. I do get the occasional survey but lately they have been ones I haven't been interested in. I should do them anyways though as GTM is one of the few places that actually pays you even if you don't qualify for a survey which is how everyone should be. If you want to help others upon receiving your payment to feel comforted that the site will actually pay them it would be nice to post up a payment proof in the site in my profile when you receive a check! The site concept is around sharing and finding payment proofs & it would be a great addition. It's especially nice for international people to know that GTM pays to international members as well as US. Anyways, g'job on reaching payout! I suggest Surveyspot as well, then. It's a great place for surveys as well. I'm not entierly sure if it's available to international people but I know they're adding Paypal soon as a payment source so if they're going to be doing it, they'll probably start soon because of it.

Hi, Actually when I requested payout all of my 1020 market points turned to zero and I got a notification by mail too.I cannot wait to lay my hands on the check though I know the wait will be long but I am happy because I earned it without any referrals.Now they have removed the referral system too.I like their system for the same reason that you mentioned-that they pay even if we do not qualify for a survey.Once I get my check I will surely put up my proof at your site to encourage others to sign up.Thank you for telling me about Surveyspot.I hope they let international members sign up.It would really be great if so.I sent in a support ticket but have not got any reply till now. Happy Mylotting!
