NiceQuest is one of the more interesting survey sites I’ve come across. The site looks good, and seems to be pretty professional. So here’s my NiceQuest review. Is NiceQuest a review or a scam? Read on to find out!
NiceQuest: First Impressions
I’ll say straight up that this is one of the best-looking survey sites I’ve encountered. The site has a nice, pastel-y design that’s really easy on the eyes. I’ll admit to being a sucker for great design - it tells me that a site is details-oriented. So many companies create these downright ugly websites it makes you wonder: if the public face is bad, what’ll it be like behind the scenes?
Beyond the great looks, NiceQuest has extensive information. All that info is easy to find, and read. So the site is pretty awesome as far as usability and readability go.
My Hot Take: This is the type of site that gets me excited to use. The design and content inspire a lot of confidence in me. So overall, a very positive first impression. But the actual experience is what matters, of course. So let’s have a look under the hood.
How to Earn on NiceQuest
It’s pretty simple: after signing up, you will receive email notifications whenever a survey becomes available to you. For each survey you complete, you will earn “Shells” which is like points on other sites. You can then use these points, er, Shells to purchase a variety of items in their shop.
The surveys they send you will be based on your profile. So make sure you provide as much demographic information as possible. Sometimes, the site will disqualify you in the middle of taking a survey. Don’t take it the wrong way - it simply means that the site has reached its quota of answers that day. But the good thing is you will receive a nominal amount of Shells for your effort.
My Hot Take: Their surveys are great - even their user interface is a cut above the competition. And the fact that they pay you when you get disqualified is awesome. But I do wish they had other options to earn, especially a referral program.
Earning Potential on NiceQuest
The site promises to send you 1 to 3 surveys per month. Yup, that’s month, not week or day. And you could get less, if you don’t qualify for more surveys. Each survey pays a couple of Shells (equivalent to a few cents).
My Hot Take: You earning potential here will be a bit low - simply because there aren’t a whole lot of surveys to go around.
Payout Options on NiceQuest
This is where it gets exciting. NiceQuest has one of the most extensive rewards options I’ve ever seen. You can use your Shells to purchase a wide (and I do mean wide) range of items. These gifts are arranged into the following categories:
- Children (Toys and games)
- Culture (Magazines and ebooks)
- Electronics (Computers, mobile devices, and other devices)
- Fashion & Beauty (Cosmetics and bath items)
- Food & Beverage (Including gourmet selections)
- Home (Kitchenware, office, décor, and tools)
- Home Appliances (Cooking and cleaning)
- Leisure (Sports and travel equipment)
- Pets (Supplies and toys)
- Printables (3D-printable files)
- Gift Cards (for over 57 establishments)
It’ll take about 5 to 40 business days for your items to arrive. It’s a bit on the long side, but since these items are essentially free, I won’t count that processing time against them. Oh, and shipping is free! Is that awesome, or what?
Also, these gift items feature top brands, such as Nike, Apple, and Amazon - no throwaway brands here!
Cash is not an option here, unfortunately. I’m usually a cash-only type of guy, but I think the sheer volume of gift options here are enough to make up for the fact that there is no cash payout option.
My Hot Take: This is one of the best rewards programs I’ve seen. The fact that they don’t over cash options makes it just short of perfect. Let’s hope they add that option later on!
How to Join NiceQuest
And here’s where things go south a bit - the site is invite-only. Meaning you’ll have to hustle and be on the lookout for various campaigns run by the site that gives invite codes. But to be honest, it sounds like too much trouble for 1 to 3 surveys a month.
The Verdict: Legit or Scam?
NiceQuest is legit. They’re awesome, and they’ve got awesome rewards. But your earnings won’t be very good. It’ll take you forever to be able to afford even the cheaper rewards. And that’s if you can even get an invite code. If you manage to snag an invite, by all means, give this site a try. Otherwise, you’ll be better off using other survey sites.
