Earn Rewards for your opinions!
Our clients learn a lot from the opinions you give in research discussions; it’s customary to compensate participants accordingly. The amount and type of compensation we provide varies from project to project, and is paid out either via pre-paid Visa™ card, check, gift card, or cash.
Rewards for in-person marketing research projects are typically given to participants, via prepaid Visa™ card or check, at the end of each session.
Occasionally, participants will be rewarded for in-person marketing research projects with gift cards, coupons, or prizes. In situations like this you will be notified before the start of the research project.
Rewards for telephone interviews are mailed to participants 6-8 weeks after the entire project is complete.
For our panel members who complete Online Surveys, we reward participation with Online Focus Pointes™.
100 Online Pointes™ are equal to one dollar. When you have accrued 2,000 Online Pointes™ you may request payment. If you have accumulated more than 100 Online Pointes™ but less than 2,000 Online Pointes™, then you may also request payment after three months. The average reward is between 100 and 1000 Pointes, which translates to $1 to $10. Payment will be made in the form of a prepaid Visa™ debit card.
You may view your accumulated Pointes by logging into www.focusgroup.com and going to you Dashboard. If you have pointes accumulated, this is also where you will have the option to request payment.
When you request payment you will receive an email that will tell you how to redeem your prepaid Visa™ card. You will have the option to receive either a virtual card or a physical card. Virtual cards may be used online for purchases immediately, while physical cards are mailed to you within 7-10 business days and can be used wherever Visa™ is accepted.
The Online Focus Pointe™ Program is for Online Surveys only. Eligibility Surveys for focus groups and other types of studies do not use the Online Focus Pointes™ Program. Eligibility Surveys (Screeners) are taken to see if you qualify for a focus group or other type of in-person or telephone interview and are not considered to be an Online Survey.
As always, every time you take a Focus Pointe Global Online Survey, you receive one entry into the Focus Pointe Global Monthly Sweepstakes.
Every time you take one of our screener or surveys, you receive one entry into our Monthly Sweepstakes. These entries accumulate in your Member Account, and you are able to view the number of entries you’ve earned.
Each month, we draw seven winners at random. The first winner receives $100 and the following 6 winners receive $25. Winners are contacted via email to let them know they won. After the winning member acknowledges receiving the email, he or she are emailed an Amazon.com e-card in the designated dollar amount. The Amazon.com e-card may be used to purchase goods sold through the Amazon.com website. Winners are posted on our website by first name and city of residence. Last names are never published.
