REVIEW OF SURVEY JUNKIE

 

My last post here was a review of several different survey sites and other ways to make some money through side hustles. Recently, I have come across another survey site, Survey Junkie. So far I am very impressed with this site.  The interface on their website is one of the easiest to navigate that I have come across.  The site has large font and a very easy to read and intuitive layout. Your points are on one side, and the surveys on the other.  The point system at Survey Junkie is pretty simple.  For each dollar, you need one hundred points.  Points can be cashed in when your balance reaches $10, or 1000 points.  The points can be redeemed for cash (paypal), or for gift cards. Redeeming your points is free, you are not docked points for cashing out.  The surveys refresh pretty often, it seems there are always new surveys to take, and plenty of them. Just like other sites, you will not qualify for every survey.  But Survey Junkie does award you a few points for your time. One thing I noticed right away was the ‘help’ button is very easy to see, and prominently displayed.

I looked them up on Trustpilot, which has reviews of many companies.  They get a 4 out of 5 stars, with over 4,100 total reviews.

I have not had the opportunity to cash out yet, but I am very optimistic about this particular site.  Once I get enough points to cash out, I will update this review.

HERE is the link to Survey Junkie is you are interested in their site.

Review of Pointclub App

pointclub, app, review

Pointclub is just one of many money-making, survey taking apps out there.  You take surveys, and are awarded points which can be used towards Paypal e-gift cards.

There are tons of apps/sites out there in which you start to take a survey, answer several questions, and then all of the sudden, you are not qualified for the survey.  The good thing about Pointclub is that even if you do not qualify, you are awarded 12 points. You aren’t going to pile up serious points this way, but at least you are awarded something for trying.  You can get the 12 points for not qualifying up to five times in one day.

Another unique thing about Pointclub, is that every day you log in, you get credit for a ‘streak’.  The longer your streak, the higher your rewards will be on surveys.  This is a great concept; if it worked.  I noticed once after a 60 day streak, that the next day, my streak went down to 35; i thought maybe it was just a fluke.  But since then, I had a streak of 105 that went down to 58, and as recently as last week, I had a streak of 65 go down to 15.

Cashing out of Pointclub is very simple.  You can request payment for a Paypal e-gift card when your points get up to 25,000 ($25).  I requested a payout over a month ago, and I did not have a great experience.  After two weeks, I emailed them and they said there had been delays in processing. The very next day it showed -25,000 points from my account.  Over the next two weeks I periodically checked my Paypal account.  Nothing.  I again emailed them. The next day I got a $25 credit in my Paypal account.

Stay, or move on?

I’m still not sure if Pointclub is worth my time or not.  Like any survey site, you will not qualify for a LOT of surveys.  I”m probably about 10% on my success rate, but at least you get some points for not qualifying.  I don’t know if my payout experience was typical, or if you have to beg for your money every time.  I may give this one a shot until my next payout and see how it goes.  At least they have been quick to answer my e-mail questions about the payouts.  If I run into the same issues the next time I am eligible for a payout, and if my ‘streak’ keeps disappearing, there are many other survey sites out there worth trying.

UPDATE: 10/13/17

Well, in the last week alone, my ‘streak’ has went down to 15, and then this morning, it is down to 5!!  After these two most recent issues, I think I am giving up on Point Club, and moving on to other apps.  There are still several I am trying, and will update on those soon.
