Have you heard of VIP Voice?
VIP Voice is an online survey site. When you listen to the news and they say ‘according to a recent survey…’ they are talking about sites like VIP Voice.
If you have never tried taking surveys online, this is this site to get you started. If you take surveys for money on your computer, this is another site you might want to add to your list of great places to earn rewards. It is well run, has been around for a long time, and has a great reputation. You can earn some serious rewards by signing up and filling out simple surveys.
VIP Voice is free to use. You will never be asked for a credit card or any payment information. You will never be charged any type of fee for earning on the site. They offer members paid surveys and have a unique system to reward members for their contributions. This site uses a point system for rewards that are then used to bid on merchandise or enter sweepstakes. The more surveys you complete, the more you are rewarded for each one.
VIP Voice feels different from other survey sites. Several things add to this feeling. The first thing you will notice is that when you log on and click on the big ‘Survey Center’ button, you are taken to a screen that shows your recent activity. There is another button called ‘Take Survey Now’. When you click it one of two things will happen. Either you will be shown details on an available survey including the estimated time to complete and compensation…or told that there is no survey available for you to take.
When you first join VIP Voice you will be compensated 50 points for each survey you complete. As you get more completed surveys credited to your account your ranking will move up and eventually the reward for each survey is 200 points.
VIP Voice does not always offer cash as a reward. While I normally prefer the green stuff, in this case it is another angle to maximize your earnings. Let me explain. When points are put into your account (instantly upon survey completion) you can do one of two things with them. You can buy sweepstakes entries to win cash or prizes… or bid on items that are up for auction. The items available are constantly changing. As you can see below, in the 60 days shown I picked 8 song downloads and sports gear (a Chicago Bears hat).
These items were won in auctions. As you can see with the song downloads I try to get them for under 300 points but sometimes when you want a new song, you want it now and I have paid way more than that at times. Some of the items offered in the past include ipod shuffles, movie kiosk rentals, restaurant gift certificates, household appliances, bicycles, vacations, phone accessories and much much more.
VIP Voice is always updating the site, adding or upgrading a feature here or there. They have run a ‘drive to 5’ promotion where if you complete at least 5 surveys in a month you get thousands of bonus points with no catch. They have a ‘Pigskin Pick ‘Em’ contest where you choose who you think will win NFL games with cash prizes every week for winners.
UPDATE: VIP sometimes offers a food diary. You will be asked to record all foods you eat for a one week period. I have done this many times and it takes about two hours total. At the end of the week you will be given bonus points for the site as well as a $25 visa gift card for participation.
This is a fun site that is fun to use, simple but yet always keeps getting better to keep interest of members. This site is run by the Toluna Group, a longstanding, well respected market research company. They run a different survey site called Toluna that also offers free product trials.
