JD Power Panel Rewards

Update: All panel spots are taken, more may come available soon.

We all have opinions and I think it’s pretty fun to get rewarded for sharing them!

Right now J.D. Power & Associates is accepting new panel members.  If you have been looking for a way to earn rewards online, J.D. Power Panel is right up your alley.  By providing feedback on products & services you have used, you’ll earn free rewards toward, Amazon gift cards, PayPal, and more!

I am always hesitant with survey reward companies and whether they work, but J.D. Power is probably the most widely known and respected company out there.  (Think of all the commercials you see with companies showing off their awards…)

To see a full list of all the rewards, be sure to check out the J.D. Power Panel website.

Heads up there are limited panel spots.

      Anybody have any experience with this one?  Just wondering how it compares to some of the other ones… mysurvey, i-say, pinecone… ?

      • …wondering the same thing myself

      • Jr

        never used them, but i have used opinion outpost for about 18 months and have never had an issue getting survey opportunities or getting paid (usually 7-10) days from payout request

        • Beth L.

          I love Opinion Outpost. It's my favorite survey site. I've been a member for about a year and just participate when I have time and I've still made over $100. I love how you can get a check or an (instant!) Amazon gift card.

      • Mel

        Well, I thought I'd give it a try.  Signed up and took the intro survey and $5 is in my account already.  You can cash out at $25.  Lots of other survey companies reward you in points.  I like that this is REAL cash (although I'm not sure they'll mail a check–it looked like most of the rewards are things like Amazon and Pay Pal gift cards–but heck–I can use that, too!).

        • I had that experience with a survey company once and I never got offered another full survey again. That $5 sat in my account forever. I hope you have better luck than I did.

      • Matt

        to many on this one want to text you stuff or want you to text back. I dont have time for all that

    • Leannewill

      I signed up! I already do viewpoint forum…. I have earned about $150 doing it. They mail a check… it is some nice fun money sometimes. :)

      • Matt

        and how did you do that. all I see is surveys that pay out $1 or even just cents and some are just not worth my time

    • Mwillingham2

      Anyone know which ones not to use?

    • Well, I just signed up and I already am not liking it. I spent some time 'qualifying' for two surveys. I HATE that type of survey. That's why I refuse to waste my time with swagbucks surveys any longer. You spend 20 minutes qualifying only to find out you don't. I remember with Pinecone years ago I didn't have to play that game.

      I do think I'm in a bad demographic because it seems like I never get anywhere with survey sites.

      • I quit participating in several survey sites, too. If they are asking you numerous questions to find out whether you qualify and then they give you absolutely nothing for your time and effort, that's stealing, IMO. I also can't believe they don't do something with all that data they mined from me, even if I didn't qualify for that particular project. So it sounds like I will skip this one. Thanks for sharing your feedback. 

        The only survey site I still participate in is Harris. I always earn points even if I don't qualify and they will usually let you know  after just a few questions whether you do or not so they don't waste your time. 

      • 3monkeysmom

        I just got disqualified for a survey after only 1 question but they put 10 cents into my account for my time :) Don't think every survey will be like that, but hey it's something!
        If I had 10 cents for every SwagBucks survey I got disqualified from, I would be a rich woman (at least in Amazon cards anyway…lol.)

    • I started answering questions and got very uncomfortable with how personal and specific they got. I don't mind giving out my opinions, but don't ask me if I'm pregnant, when is my due date, how many children do I have, when is my birthday, etc. TOO PERSONAL. We prefer not to plaster our information all over the internet (one reason I use a fake name and junk-mail address for couponing, and don't give my street address to every company under the sun just to get a free sample of something!).
      Too bad, might have been fun.

      • really?

        thats why they are reimbursing you with some sort of reward

        • Oh ok, a couple of dollars in return for my identity. Sounds like a great deal. No thanks!

          • me

            paranoid lately? they arent gonna come over or anything its not a big deal

            • I really don't understand why my comments bother you….you are either Mr. JD Power himself, or just extremely confrontational, lol!! Since I keep up with the news regularly, I know that companies get information stolen by identity thieves or used by crooked employees all the time – I'm just warning people that they need to be very cautious about what personal information they give out. I started filling out a WalMart survey recently, and aside from all my contact information (phone #, address, etc), they also “needed” to know how many children I have, what their ages were, whether I was prego, and whether I was home alone during the day (I am not even kidding!!). That is completely ridiculous!
              Just be careful, that's all I'm trying to say. Geez.

      • Beth L.

        If you aren't comfortable giving out that sort of information then I can't think of any survey site that would work for you. Companies put out surveys requesting that kind of information so they can determine how people in certain demographics feel about the products/services. It's in the nature of marketing to ask lots of demographic-type questions.

    • I just paid $21.87 for an iPaad 2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, http://to.ly/aT8h

    • Tanyaextremecoupon
