LifePoints is a survey panel created by Lightspeed (now Kantar), one of the most established market research firms in the business. Their origins predate the internet, going back to 1946, when they ran their first research study. Now they have more than 5 million members.
Lifepoints is very easy to use and navigate. Available surveys are listed on the front page in a tile format. Earnings are displayed as LifePoints, with each LifePoint being valued at slightly less than one cent. For example, a $5 PayPal payment costs 600 LifePoints while a $5 Amazon gift card costs 550 LifePoints. Payouts start at a $5 amount (Amazon and PayPal). At the $10 payout amount and higher, members will find more gift card options available.
This program has a few disadvantages: It is a little annoying that the site only stays logged in for a short time, making it necessary to login again; survey availability may be limited at times; it is not possible to earn money by referral others to join the LifePoints program.
