QuizPoints Program Review

September 17, 2004 · 16 comments

QuizPoints Program Review — update, 8/2010: with a BBB rating of F and non-payment complaints, I can no longer recommend this program. See the latest news here.
Date Launched (in its current structure): May 2004
Reward Per Dollar Spent: Varies
Minimum to Redeem: 500 pts
Prizes Offered: PayPal, GCs
Partial Prize List: http://www.quizpoints.com/rewards.asp
Earn Points For: Shopping, signups, referrals
Limit One Account Per: US resident age 18+, one account per household (no corporate entities allowed, if a person has more than one address they can still have just one household account)
Dollar Value of a Point: Approximately $.02
Daily “Free” Points: Available for completing surveys (amount of points unclear)

Common Rewards for Shopping and their % Equivalents:

25 Points Per $2 Spent = %
25 Points Per $3 Spent = %
Notes:
An older program revamped in 9/04, apparently now only a portal for Offerpal Media offers. While the site did pay at one time — I have been paid $155 since 11/2005 — the program, or at least its parent company, Digital Branding, LLC, currently has an “F” BBB rating, so I do not recommend QuizPoints at all.

Quizpoints is awesome! I got a credit card from them and got my points within 3 weeks. Then I ordered my gift card and got it the SAME week. I think this program is going to be around for a while.

Quizpoints is possibly the best rewards site I have seen. Although their selection of offers is limited, they are constantly adding more (and none of those really annoying offers that arent worth completing).
It’s really simple to understand the point scale for their site as well, and you can order a prize right after you earn 500 points (which is the minimum for a prize). They have this thing called the Quickpoints wizard… when I tried it out, I earned 600 points for free and got my gift card the same week. This site truely is amazing, I am definately staying with them as long as they’re around.
(they said something about having a friends feature too:)

Quizpoints is a great site! I signed up for it and my first gift card came in about 2 weeks. It’s easy to earn points for your first gift card (they give you $2 for free, $10 min to get paid). They don’t have free points, but they give a lot of points for their offers, so it’s sort of like they give you free points without making you click around.
I like this site a lot, especially now that they have a friends section and that they post coupon codes.

Quizpoints is FABULOUS! They now guarantee shipment of all in stock gift cards (usually Target and Walmart) within 24 hours. And they do ship within 24 hours! Excellent! A+

I personally think Quizpoints is a waste of time. Nothing is for free. Just by buying through this site, you are making the people that run this site richer. These offers where you don’t have to spend your money will only hurt your credit and waste your time.

Darline,
Thank you for your comment. I must disagree with you. We have a number of links that are specifically for “free stuff” people:
Here:
http://www.quizpoints.com/browseIndex2.asp?catID=106
Here:
http://www.quizpoints.com/browseOffers.asp?bt=free&s=r
and Here:
http://www.quizpoints.com/wizPoints.asp
Many of these offers can be found on other rewards sites as well. The reason Quizpoints does not offer “free” points (besides referrals and Quizpoints Friends) is because we try to pay out higher rates than our competitors. Therefore, when you complete offers, you automatically get those “free points”, instead of having to work for them by clicking links and such.
If you have any questions, please let us know!

Quizpoints is great. Easy to earn points (by trying free offer, or signing up for paid offers, or by using their site to connect to other shopping sites). Also you get paid cash or can choose from lots of gift cards with fast shipping.
Great site. Get free gift cards with Quizpoints.com!

I love Quizpoints. I have been on Creation Rewards, Fusion Cash, and one that doesn’t exist anymore, (the name escapes me at the moment)Quizpoints has been my most pleasant experience so far.
Good customer service, good payouts, user friendly website, and reasonable rules. (Fusion Cash could learn a thing or two about reasonable rules, cough)
My only minor constructive criticism is that I wish that they offered checks as an additional option to paypal and gift cards, but with that being said, they still rule, IMHO.

I’m not sure about quizpoints.
I’m currently a member and I feel I’m selling my private information for money.

You tend to get more Spam emails after joining Quizpoints. I agree with Alan above in that you are probably selling your private info for money AND Spam emails also.

This program still has an operating page but they owe me three $25. gift certificates, from Oct, Nov, and Dec 2008. They haven’t answered the last 5 emails I have sent to them… anyone else having trouble?

of course like your website however you have to
test the spelling on several of your posts.
Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find
it very bothersome to tell the truth then again I’ll certainly come again again.
