At some paid survey sites, in stead of being paid individually for each survey you take, you are rewarded with points which can be collected and cashed in for cash, gift cards, or other rewards. Sometimes, when you are taking surveys for points, it's hard to tell how much you are actually earning. The grid below can help you figure out what your points are worth at various paid survey sites.
In the row that titled "1 Point Value" you will find the value of one point. In the row titled "Points for $1" you'll find the amount of points necessary to recieve $1.00 worth of reward. Points values are based on cash rewards where available, or gift card value when cash is not a reward option. I don't attempt to put a value to other types of rewards, and do not consider sweepstakes entries in my calculations. Points range is based on my own experience with that program, and is left blank where I feel I don't have enough data to make an aproximation.
Note that some of these programs I am no longer active with, so some of this info may be outdated.
I receive referral commission from some of these companies.
Points are now called "itcoins" on Testspin and can currently be cashed in through Paypal (PP) or spent on an Amazon Giftcard (AZ). You get more with an Amazon gift card than Paypal. They will be adding other prize options soon. (Updated 6/25/14)
