PointsPrizes Review Safe and Secure GPT.jpg



Whenever I talk to people who have made GPT and paid survey sites their source of an extra income, one of the biggest concerns they raise is the potential for identity theft, along with general privacy invasion. It’s a perfectly understandable issue. After all, you’re asked some really personal questions in the pre-survey questionnaire alone to determine qualification. Almost all sites also encourage a thorough profile taking so they can know if you’re the target demographic of certain survey partners.

In this PointsPrizes review, I aim to underline the importance of user privacy (a very big issue today) via its platform. Of course, the bottom line would still be if it’s a legit one or a potential scam, and if PointsPrizes is something I would actually recommend to others.

What’s it all about?

It’s an online rewards site with an emphasis on surveys and small tasks for users. In one of the FAQs, PointsPrizes calls itself “a casual site, for casual users to earn free gift cards and other prizes.”

One thing I immediately noticed about PointsPrizes is its focus on being an authentic GPT site, as well as on how they value user security and anonymity (they explain these issues in detail here and here). PointsPrizes does not even require accounts to have passwords, citing several instances of data breaches and hacking of different apps and sites in recent years. They explained how they do not want to ask for sensitive data from their users beyond a verifiable email address because of this.

Is it a new site?

It’s pretty new, given that PointsPrizes was established in 2016 in France. Most GPT sites have been around for over a decade at least. Normally, I would be pretty suspicious of newer sites, but there’s something about this one that makes me think it’s trustworthy.

Its being a new site also makes for a refreshing break from other wordier GPTs that over-promise using industry jargon that doesn’t really explain what they are all about. PointsPrizes, on the other hand, offers a series of FAQ “articles” patiently addressing all kinds of questions and concerns - from how they “can afford to pay so much to its users”, to presenting detailed evidence of what makes them legit, through to the usual concerns of paid survey and GPT sites, such as blocked access, how to earn points and referral programs.

Is signing up free?

Yes, there are no joining or maintenance fees required. You can, however, earn points via a referral system so every time someone you’ve referred signs up, you can immediately earn anywhere between 1 to 10 bonus points.

A special note: if you plan to redeem points via PayPal, use the same verified email address for signing up because that’s where the site will send your direct payment.

Will you get good extra income from it?

I would say there’s a good chance to earn some quick extra cash from PointsPrizes along with the potential to earn more long-term, given their good referral system that not only gives you immediate bonus points, but also the opportunity to get 10% of your referrals’ earnings once they complete tasks.

You can earn gift cards from Steam, PayPal, Amazon , iTunes, Netflix, and a host of other gaming, entertainment, home and electronics, fashion, travel, and food and groceries retailers. However, it is important to note that PointsPrizes gift codes are only valid in the US (with the exception of Steam).

How do I start earning?

As with many GPT sites, there’s a menu of different, doable tasks to accomplish here: Offer Walls, survey routers, viewing video ads, and even daily bonuses (there is a daily poll which can earn you 5 points right away). The PointsPrizes points generator is a good indication of how much you’ve earned thus far. To redeem a $20 gift card, you will need around 3000 points.

Of course, there’s always the referral program to earn some points passively, which I would highly recommend on this site, and on any other GPT sites for that matter.

How and how soon can I get paid?

As soon as you start earning points, you can claim the prize you want straight away. There’s a Claim Prizes tab on the site that indicates the value of the prize, which you can click on to “claim”. You’re allowed to monitor your prize delivery via the History tab, and if the status changes to “In Progress”, it means that PointsPrizes has already acknowledged your claim and it can no longer be cancelled. They will also tell you the ETA of your prize delivery.

The verdict

So is PointsPrizes legit? I would say yes! In fact, they seem to really want to distance themselves from the scam GPTs proliferating online today and aim to “eliminate this harmful practice” by providing both a safe and an easy way to earn for their users. One of their FAQs expounds on their “total anonymity” policy where they don’t ask for personal details beyond an email address.

I’m really liking how this site acknowledges user questions and issues in a straightforward manner, so if you’re curious about anything, just take a look at their Help Center and you’re bound to get the kind of information you need.

Is PointsPrizes legit? Yes, they are, however in my experience they are hardly worth the effort. Their payouts are nowhere near that of GrabPoints which seems so be competing with them and the cost of their rewards are also more expensive, not to mention their minimum payout is a real turnoff. With that said you can make some money and they do tend to give some free PointsPrizes coupons here and there. But in my humble opinion there are just far better GPT sites out there.

Long story shorty they're legit but they're not one of the best providers out there.

Here is what threw me off mostly : As Arlo said they pay way less for the offers than other sites ( yes the same offers! ) and on top of that their point system is confusing. The terms and conditions for some offers are not clear and while the design of the site is good the presentation of the offers is confusing.

Another annoying thing is that the minimum payout is $20 and with their low payouts for the offers thats very hard to reach. You could give them a try if you like as they're no scam page but it'll take you a while to make some cash.

Ok enough about the bad stuff here is something thats really awesome about PointsPrizes! They offer coupon codes. So what you could do to get more coins is look for their coupons and then you either get some free points or get more points when you finish tasks. The codes are available online and here is something you will thank me for later :

Use : TRUSTSPOT25 on the site and you'll get 300 free points ( worth about $2 ) the coupon code was working as of oct 10 but might expire soon!

At first, I didn't think this website is legit since it's a new site, at least not until I made 15 dollars in just a week and successfully received them via PayPal.

Just for completing easy surveys and other various tasks, anyone can really make some money here. Though it's true that this website isn't the best one in terms of earning, I'm still happy cause they are legit and they really pay.

Like any other GTP sites, PointsPrizes also offers gift cards as an alternative to those who don't have PayPal account.

A few tips on how to easily earn points from this website:

1. Download PointsPrizes mobile app on your phone.
2. Watch ads in the mobile app (note: there is a limit on the number of points you can earn from ads every 24 hours).
3. Do surveys in the mobile app (you are guaranteed to receive your points once you finished it through mobile app).

I don't like them very much to be honest. They're legit and they pay out but the payouts are too low compared to other survey sites and I don't like the minimum amount.

I can make a lot more money with other survey sites. The best thing about them is the PointsPrizes app that allows you to earn some coins on the go by watching some ads / videos. You can use them and you will get paid but I would recommend that you do your research and find some better paying sites. In the end most of those providers offer similar surveys and it depends on them how much they pay you. I always try to get the most for my work :). @FloydMCD good point about the coupons and that's probably one of the reasons I use them regularly still. With the coupons you can earn double your points etc once in a while which makes it worthwhile. I basically wait till I found a good coupon and then do the tasks. But when I don't have a coupon I usually just make my rounds on the other survey sites that I visit frequently ( as every good beer money earner I rotate in between sites). Hope my little PointsPrizes review helped you guys

I just came across this board and figured I share my experiences as well.

I couldn't agree more with you Trixie . Without the coupons I'd rather skip them but when they offer the 2x points etc coupons it totally makes sense to do those surveys & offers. To answer the original question : PointsPrizes is legit and you don't have to worry about getting paid. I got paid by them and there are a lot of payment proofs online. The only problem is the low payouts so just use them if you're done with the higher paying tasks on other sites. It's also funny to read that you guys do it the same way I do. I sign up to a lot of survey sites and then switch in between them and look for the highest paying ones. Why bother with those low paying offers. They usually take the same time so try to get as much cash as you can!

All in all my experience with PointsPrizes was positive but they are not in my top 5 survey sites.

As far as first impressions go, I was very impressed with this site at first glance. It’s easy to use, and I was able to finish setting up my account within 5 minutes.
The way the site works is that you earn points by completing offers such as taking surveys, watching videos, and many more, and once you have enough points you can use your points to redeem rewards such as gift cards and even cash.
PointsPrizes has downsides (like any other sites cause nothing's perfect). A lot of it comes down to personal preferences. I think this site has some potential.
This site isn't the highest paying one but I guarantee everyone that they really pay cause they are legit. I got paid couple of times already.

I've been a member of this site for a long time now, and have been paid more than 10X already. I am from the Netherlands, and this site has a lot to offer in our country.
But even if you live in a country where there aren't as many offers, you can still get paid. I have an online friend who's from the Philippines, and he already made about $40 by completing offers and referrals.
Their site is easy to navigate and understand, the points they give for every completed offer is very reasonable. The delivery of rewards is fast as well.b
Also, thanks to their helpful support staffs who are helping me every time I encounter an issue on their site.
PointsPrizes is legit. Yes, it might be hard to earn points for some users who's in other countries. But if you really want to, you can make a decent amount of money from this site.

PointsPrizes really is legit and can make you some extra money, but it's not as good as other GPT sites. I've been paid twice from this website, and the payout is fast. However, it's not worth the time and effort cause it's quite hard to earn compared to some other sites. I guess it's all because of the country I'm in.

Another thing is it is not very user-friendly as some of the conditions for the offers you can take are not very clear, and the point system is a bit confusing. If you can live with these cons, and you're from the US or UK, it might still be a site worth joining for you.

I've read a lot of negative reviews about PointsPrizes not too long ago, I got curious, so I decided to try it. Even I thought that this site was a scam, but I made $20 in just two weeks and successfully received them via PayPal.
There are also different gift cards if you don’t have PayPal/Bitcoin wallet. You probably can’t earn a lot of money here, but it’s nice to get paid just for playing games, completing surveys, and more!
Their site looks great and is easy to navigate. I also get qualified for surveys faster than other sites. PointsPrizes is legit and an excellent site to earn gift cards and cash. Definitely worth a try.

I started using PointsPrizes without expecting it to be real, and maybe just another scammy site that doesn't pay its members. However I joined the Discord and was greeted by awesome people and staff members who helped, and also the Discord shows the proof of people being paid so I decided to try the site out, and within two weeks I managed to gain around 20k points. With this, I claimed three Amazon gift cards and two eBay gift cards. After four days, I received my rewards, and they worked and were valid.

This website totally pays its member. It might take time, and the waiting period is long compared to some sites. However, the reward will be worth it. I recommend this site.

This is an excellent site to earn money, cause they are legit and they pay their members for their effort.

I have an experience before that I want to share though. There was an unusual delay in my PayPal claim being reviewed one time, which caused the final delivery of my request to be delayed by about a week. Other than that, I've been very pleased with the PointsPrizes process of earning points and redeeming rewards.

The terms of each offer are very transparent, so I know exactly what to expect when accepting them. The conversion ratio of points to prize amounts is fair and consistent. They also have great support staffs cause they're always there to help me whenever I encounter some issues with their site. I love being with PointsPrizes!

Thought this was a scam, but not until I made 15 dollars in a week and successfully received them via PayPal. I was so happy cause this is the first GPT site that I worked with, and it went well.

There are also other rewards to choose from; they have different gift cards if you don’t have PayPal or Bitcoin wallet. You probably can’t earn a lot of money as I said, but it’s nice to get paid just for doing easy tasks such as playing games, completing surveys, and more.

Their website is easy to navigate cause it's simple. Another good thing is their customer service staffs cause they are responsive and helpful. I sometimes encounter missing credits for completing a task, but they always help me get those. PointsPrizes is legit, and a great way to earn extra bucks!

Can you attach your PointsPrizes payment proof? We need more payment proofs, no one has yet to upload theirs.

That's quite a delay with delivery (16 days) but regardless, glad you received your reward. There are many better options that will send you rewards within a couple of business days, and they also have a better exchange rate, such as ZoomBucks.

idk at zoombucks 3000 points only gets you $3 dollars on pointsprizes 3000 points is $20

Here's one example (using Hideout.TV as an example):

On ZoomBucks, you get 7 points for 3 videos, which means you'll earn 3000 points by converted 428 times
On PointsPrizes, you get 1 point for 3 videos, which means you'll earn 3000 points by converting 3000 times.

If you get 3000 video conversions on ZoomBucks, you'll receive $21.00, a bit more than PointsPrizes but keep in mind, some of the offers on ZoomBucks pay even more.

zoombucks offers 20 dollars paypal in exchange for 20000 points. you think i can make 20000 easier on zoombucks than i can make 3000 points on pointsprizes? zoombucks does have the same remption of 3000 but for 3. i never watched that many videos lol
