How to Earn by Answering Surveys – My GrabPoints Review

Being a working mama is no walk in the park (although my family and I do take our park time very seriously!). It’s a combination juggling and tightrope act. Us working moms have to balance our responsibilities as a wife and mother with our work-related duties. And I love this life – but I do need to keep a constant eye out for new earning ideas.


And that’s what brought me to GrabPoints. On GrabPoints, you can earn cash and gift cards by doing a bunch of simple online tasks like answering surveys and viewing videos. GrabPoints fits perfectly with my lifestyle. I can answer surveys while waiting for my son to finish school or in between errands. Also, being an opinionated gal, answering surveys sounded pretty fun!


The site caught my interest for two reasons: 1. GrabPoints claims to give members the highest earnings and rewards, and 2. They’ve got a huge selection of gift cards, which you can claim as your reward. The latter appealed to me because I could get a Walmart gift card as my reward. My family loves to shop at Walmart, and having a gift card always comes in handy.

Still skeptical?


I wouldn’t blame you if you’re pretty skeptical about survey and rewards sites. A quick internet search will show you a bunch of shady sites mixed with the good ones. Based on my experience, GrabPoints is definitely one of the good ones – actually, no. They’re not just good, they’re great. I’ll be giving you reasons why I love GrabPoints later in this post. But for now, let me reassure you that they’re legit.


They’re legit because they only work with legit advertisers. These companies commission GrabPoints to conduct surveys or show videos to its members. The info we provide through our survey answers helps the companies create new products or services. Since these advertisers pay GrabPoints, the site’s members also get paid. In the four years GrabPoints has been around, the site has paid over $5 million to its 4 million members!


Now that I’ve covered the basics about GrabPoints, it’s time to get into the nitty-gritty of the site. Read on!

Earning on GrabPoints


Answering surveys is probably the most popular earning method on GrabPoints, but it’s just the tip of the iceberg, really. There’s so much to do on this site. Whenever you complete a task, points are credited to your account. You can then trade these points for cash or gift cards later on.


I’ll be talking about how to get your earnings in a bit. For now, let’s check out the different earning methods.

  1. Answer Surveys


Individual surveys are usually assigned to members based on demographics. For example, I love DIY and blogging. If a survey that covers those topics becomes available, it would most likely be made available to me and other members with similar interests.

  1. Watch Videos


This is one of the easier earning methods on GrabPoints. They’ve got different video channels that cover a wide range of interests. (You can always switch between channels). Whenever a video is done playing, you get points.  After which, you move on to the next video.

  1. Take Offers


This task comes in different flavors, but generally, you get points for signing up for a free trial subscription or membership. Take note, sometimes these offers require you to make an initial purchase or provide your credit card info. You can always deactivate your account before the free period is over – or who knows, you might actually want to keep your subscription.

  1. Download and Test Apps


If you love using your mobile phone or tablet (and who doesn’t?), you’re going to love this. GrabPoints will reward you with points whenever you download and use any of their promoted apps for a set period of time.


How to get your rewards


Now this is the part you’ve probably been waiting for. There’s a minimum withdrawal amount of $3, meaning you need to accumulate $3 or more before you can redeem your earnings. But don’t worry, $3 is a pretty low amount, and you should be able to reach that amount without much trouble.


You can redeem your earnings either as cash or gift cards. Cash is sent via PayPal, while gift cards are sent via email. Payout requests are processed within 48 hours. That’s some speedy service right there – I wish my cable repair guy worked that fast!  


What makes GrabPoints special?


So I’ve been using GrabPoints for quite a bit, and I’ve gotten a pretty good idea what makes the site better than the competition. Let me break it down for ya:  


  1. It fits the working mom lifestyle


The earning methods on GrabPoints are doable on mobile devices, making it them easy to do in between chores and errands. I can even use GrabPoints during breaktime at work.  


  1. They really are the highest-paying survey site


The hype is real, folks. GrabPoints is the highest-paying survey site in the world. The site even shows earnings on GrabPoints vs earnings on other rewards sites. That type of transparency is pretty unique in the survey scene. I can also confirm that my personal earnings for these tasks matched up with the advertised amounts.   


  1. Quick payment processing


Once I reached the $3 minimum, I got my earnings (whether as cash or gift cards) within two days. That is fast! While I only use my earnings to supplement my main income, the quick processing means I can rely on GrabPoints if I need to do a quick grocery run or pay for gas the coming weekend.

  1. Lots of rewards options


I just love all the gift card options GrabPoints has. I already mentioned that I’m partial to that Walmart gift card, but there are so many different cards available, most of which are useful to us moms.


I’m glad Piglet isn’t super into video games yet, because GrabPoints also offers Steam Wallet and PlayStation rewards. Uh-oh!




Thanks for reading my GrabPoints review. The site is definitely legit, and presents a great earning opportunity for us working moms.


The reasons why I like GrabPoints are my own – I’m sure you’ll find your own reasons to love GrabPoints when you’ve given it a try!
