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.
