How Does It Work?
As a MyView member, you are able to provide feedback and opinions on a wide range of topics. MyView works with a range of well-known companies and brands. You could be asked your opinion on computers, cars, pet food, online shopping, even beer. Your feedback is highly valuable and MyView offers you the chance to be rewarded for your time.
Once registered, members will receive email invitations to surveys that are relevant to them. Survey length varies, but you will be told at the start of each survey how long it will take to complete. You will also be told how many points you will receive if you complete the survey. And if you are screened out of the survey, you will still receive an entry into the monthly cash prize draw, where you could win up to $1,000 cash.
You can see how many points you have earned in your MyView dashboard. Members can also participate in mini polls and interact via Facebook from the member site.
As well as the online site, MyView members can also opt to receive surveys sent directly to their mobile or smart phone. These surveys are specifically tailored to mobile devices and are different to those available online. This means that you’ll have even more opportunities to complete surveys and earn rewards.
Points and Rewards
The minimum payout for MyView rewards is $20, and with so many opportunities to complete surveys, members will be able to redeem rewards very quickly. As an added bonus, if you are screened out of a survey after even only a few questions, you will still receive an entry into the monthly prize draw.
Points can be redeemed for gift cards from stores including:
- Coles & Myer
- Option to donate your points to one of the partnering Australian charities
Additionally, your MyView points will not expire as long as you are an active member of the site so you have plenty of time to redeem them for something you really want.
How Quickly Can I Start Redeeming Rewards?
When redeeming points, members should be aware that:
- It may take up to 28 days for points to appear in your member dashboard
- You need to have accrued at least $20 in order to start redeeming rewards
- Electronic vouchers will be sent by email and may take up to six weeks to be processed
- Physical gift cards will be posted out to your nominated address and may take up to six weeks to arrive
MyView Bonus Prize Draws
Every month all active members of the site are entered into a draw to win up to $1,000 cash. With $2,000 given away each month, in increments from $100 to $1,000, there are plenty of chances for members to win.
All active members of MySurvey receive one entry into the draw. Additional entires are available to MyView members who either complete a survey or attempt to complete a survey but are then screened out. There are no limits to the number of prize draw entries that you can accrue each month.
MySurvey also offer a new member prize draw, which is a bonus prize for members who sign up during the promotional period. Currently, all new members go in the daw to win a 16GB Apple iPad mini.
