Zoom Panel

Name: Zoom Panel

Date joined: 12/18/2010

Referral program? Yes, pays 50 ZoomPoints for every referral qualifying for ZoomPanel Surveys.

URL: http://www.zoompanel.com/

Amount earned: $25.00 in Amazon Gift Code

Paid? Yes! Made first redemption request on 06/09/12, the gift code from Amazon arrived 06/12/12. Their redemption process for the codes was a little odd with a number of steps to jump through, but I’m glad to say it did arrive.

Zoom Panel Payment Proof:

Recommended? Yes, but in my experience this was a slow earner. It took me a year and a half just to get to the $25.00 to cash out! ZoomPanel is definitely not a scam site, but it’s not one of the faster ones. In all fairness though, note that I have not hooked up my Facebook profile with the site, which would have increased my earning capability. Hooking Facebook in is something I’m just not comfortable with.

Global Test Market

Name: Global Test Market

Type of program: Surveys

Date joined: 12/15/2010

Referral program? Received an email on 5/17 stating they’ve launched a referral program. The details are:

The process is simple
1. Refer a friend to join and complete a GlobalTestMarket survey
2. Earn 20 bonus MarketPoints
3. Continue earning 20 MarketPoints for each additional referral!

And in the small print:

Promotion Policies: To receive the 20 MarketPoints your referral must complete a GlobalTestMarket survey; profile surveys are excluded from the promotion. MarketPoints will be credited to your account when the promotion ends in approximately 30 days. Bonus MarketPoints for referrals who complete the first survey after our promotion ends will not be awarded.

The only drawback is that the referral emails must be sent from inside the site; there is no universal referral URL.

URL: http://www.globaltestmarket.com

Amount earned: $50.00 Paid, $1.15 Pending

Paid? Yes! First payout request submitted 10/31/2011, received 12/07/2011

Global Test Market Payment Proof:


Recommended? I would say yes. The lack of a dynamic referral URL is a drawback, as is the high minimum payment. However, others have earned more from this program. It is definitely not a scam site; they do pay.
