I have joined a few select survey sites, but only after carefully checking out the ones which could be trusted and which should be avoided like the plague, and I have found that Lightspeedpanel is one which CAN be trusted. A lot of people don’t like survey sites as they find them tedious and time consuming, but if you can spare ten to twenty minutes during a lapse at work then why not boost your ‘beer tokens’ with some simple question where there are no wrong answers, and Lightspeedpanel is a great trusty survey sight to use.
** WHAT IS IT..?
Lightspeedpanel (LSP) is one of the many online survey sites which offers small rewards for your time, only lightspeedpanel is slightly different than a lot of them, lightspeedpanel actually pays out.
** HOW DO YOU BECOME A MEMBER..?
Firstly, you must be aged sixteen and above and be resident in the UK. Simply go here… http://uk.lightspeedpanel.com/register/join.html?custom=SMBUK00103 Then you are asked your E-mail address and a chosen password. And then it is a simple matter of filling in a few personal details, such as name, address, marital status and such like…
Then , once you’ve been accepted as a member it is just a matter of waiting for the e-mails to roll in.
**WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU THEN..?
There payment system goes by points, adding them to your account for each survey completed. The points range varies, I have received offers of 40 point up to a maximum of 150 points. The points can then be redeemed for vouchers from a vast, and I mean vast, array of shops and the like, for example…
Argos - 1466 points = £10.00 or 2875 point = £25.00
HMV - 550 points = £5.00 or 1100 points = £10.00 And many more…
** You may notice that there is a difference in the amount of points required for different redemptions, so please check the ‘shop’ do see how the points to voucher offers.
** THE SURVEYS…
The surveys come from various companies and offer various rewards, although some surveys you will not be eligible for.
You will receive an E-Mail which LSP send to your registered E-mail account, this e-mail will give details about how to open the survey, how many points will be awarded and approximately how long the survey may take. Simply click the link in the E-Mail and follow the on-line instructions to complete the survey, once completed your points are credited to your account with in minutes, (unlike many survey site which seem to take an age to credit your account).
** There are also other ‘mini’ surveys, quick matches and mini polls, which help match you too certain surveys and can enter you into a prize draw which is worth £2000 (although I have never actually won the prize draw as yet).
NOTE: You must finish the survey in one sitting.
This is what everyone want to really know, well, once you have reached the points for which you want to redeem a voucher then it is a simple matter of redeeming what you want. This is done from your points account by simply popping into the ‘shop’ and browsing through the vast array of rewards until you find the one you want. Then follow the simple directions to redeem your rewards.
I tend to go for amazon vouchers and have received every redemption within an hour, sometimes with in minutes, (the code being sent to my registered E-Mail account), which is good, but as I have no experience regarding the other redemptions I can not make a truthful comment, although I can not see any delays in other rewards.
If you need to contact LSP then it is simply a matter of logging on to the site, running through the many possible questions listed and then sending them an e-mail, to which they will reply with as much help as they possibly can.
** IN CONCLUSION…
I have been a member of this survey site for a while know and quite like relaxing whilst filling in the simple surveys, taking my time on the questions asked, (you never know, my answers may change the consumer world one day) Lightspeedpanel is one of them easy to use sites which pays a vast array of rewards, catering for every member. It is easy to join, asking only a handful of questions, nothing too personal and within minutes you are a member, it is just a matter of waiting for the surveys to start appearing in your inbox.
Yes I know, survey sites aren’t for everyone, some people find them boring, others find them to much hassle for the minimal rewards offered. So I wont try and pretend that Lightspeedpanel will make you an overnight millionaire by completing the most interesting surveys ever though up, as I’d be telling a few porkies. But what I will say is that the surveys are easy to complete and some are even thought-provoking to actually be involved in, a few I have completed have opened my eyes to some rather interesting facts and findings. The surveys offered do range in length but the rewards offered do reflect the fact, giving a good incentive to complete the survey. I find it to be a very user friendly, with everything there to be viewed so you can keep track of your account, including the surveys completed, points acquired and redemptions made, which is very useful to have in deed. Another nice thing I like about LSP is the fact that you are credited with your points within minutes of completing the review, (unlike some other sites which can take weeks to credit your account), and when you redeem your rewards you are paid in no time at all, (especially with amazon vouchers I have found). If you do have any problems, (which is quite unlikely), the help desk is helpful enough to sort any little hassles out.
In all , although Lightspeedpanel may sound like any other survey site this one pays out quicker than a Elton Johns Bank Manager at the florist. Each survey is well rewarded and the points do mount up in no time, helping you save for that rainy day, or just that voucher to slip into some ones birthday card.
