MyView.com is a paid survey company that has been around for a few years, and while you may have heard of them or even worked with them before, they’ve recently updated and changed their system.
Previously, My View had their members create PayPal accounts that they used for all payouts, which would take anywhere from 6-8 weeks to complete. Now My View has altered their system so instead of Pay Pal cash payouts, they reward their members with prepaid Visa cards. While this isn’t a cash payout, the new time for transaction completion from when you request your Visa card to when you receive it is supposed to be only 2-3 days.
They are also planning on incorporating other rewards into their program – magazine subscriptions, gift cards to certain stores, charity donations, etc.
Because of their new rewards program, My View no longer applies monetary values to their surveys. Instead you receive points for completing surveys, and your My View account will let you know how many points are necessary to redeem what rewards. Because of the new point system, My View now rewards points to members even when they are unable to successfully complete a survey, which they “Just for Trying” points.
So is My View a Scam?
MyView.com does not ask for any membership fees or payments of any kind. They don’t require you to sign up for trial offers that you will need to cancel in the future, so in general, My View seems like a legitimate survey company.
Previous complaints about My View had to do with how little money was earned and how long it took for the company to pay out members’ money. However, since My View has transferred to the point and reward system, it will be interesting to see whether or not they improve in that regard.
Unfortunately, My View does not accept open membership. Instead,if you’re looking to make money taking surveys with My View, you need to referred by another My View member or by a company that does business with MyView.com.

Yesterday, I took a survey that ended up with me being qualified to participate in a "live chat" survey this Tuesday at 5:00 PM (ET) where I would be paid $30. After I agreed to the conditions and all that jazz, I was told they would send me an e-mail to the survey link that I could click on when the time came to take it. It's now about 24 hours later and I have yet to receive this link and at this point I don't think I'm going to be. If I'm right, there goes $30. :(
And now today, I decided to use 150 of my points to enter a sweepstakes to win 50,000 points. After I did this, it took me to a page with a summary of my order and a "We've e-mailed you a copy of this information for your records" message. It's now an hour later and I have not yet received the e-mail they promised.
Not receiving promised emails might not mean the site as a whole is a scam, but it could be a sign that something isn't right.
I ordered an $15 iTunes Gift Card for my reward points and it was supposed to be delivered within 4 to 6 weeks?!?!?! Within that period I did not receive my reward, so I contacted them. Some Lindsay Moore ([email protected]) sent a pretty shallow remark to my inquiry and that was all...
Do not waste your time with those scam artists!!!
