GrabPoints.com is the online home of GrabPoints, a company that says their goal is to give people the option to “grab offers, grab points, and grab free gift cards,” by using their mobile application.
This website provides people with a mobile application where they will complete a variety of activities in exchange for points which are awarded to them, based on the activities they have completed.
Perhaps the best part of this company and their service is that they offer their customers access to their mobile application and all its benefits completely free of charge at the time of download and throughout their time as a member.
How It Works
The GrabPoints mobile application is actually a market research service. They get people to sign up and download their mobile application and then they will be provided with special offers, surveys, videos, and the opportunity to try and use new mobile applications.
Their website claims that the mobile apps you try and surveys you complete will help Fortune 500 companies improve their products and services, which is why GrabPoints will provide you with points for all the activities you complete.
Members will also be able to earn points by referring their friends and family members to become GrabPoints members as well. Members who collect the appropriate amount of points will then be able to exchange them for gift cards to retailers like Amazon, BestBuy, StarBucks, Wal-Mart, Target, Paypal and more.
What to Consider
When it comes to earning money or rewards from a market research company, there are a few important questions to ask. The first is whether or not you can be a contributing member for free or whether they ask you to pay a fee. GrabPoints is completely free to download and to join, so they meet this standard.
The other important factor to consider is what the minimum payout is for their compensation or rewards. This company does not appear to openly publish this information on their website for prospective customers, but other members of this service have said that it is 300 points, or $3.00, which is a reasonable payout.
In general it does appear as though this company follows all the standards making it an ethical market research company where members may actually be able to earn rewards and get gift cards to useful retailers. What is important to remember, however, is that market research rewards are intended as supplemental income – there isn’t really a way to use this kind of side work to “replace your day job,” but it can be a fun and interesting way to earn extra side money when you have time.
