GrabPoints Referral Code: USD$0.50 – Singapore Review
Last updated on 5th March 2023, Sunday
I have been wanting to introduce this other legit GPT site, called GrabPoints. I have already made withdrawals a few times now.
GrabPoints is also a legit GPT website where you can do surveys, complete offers and watch videos to earn rewards, and it can then be exchanged for cash and gift cards.
Before I go into details, this is my GrabPoints
Referral code/ link: https://grabpoints.com/rewards/earn-free-paypal-cash/?ref=EX2YSS
You will receive free 500 points if you sign up with my referral code by clicking directly on this referral link.
500 points is about USD$0.50.
It’s not a lot but I did not manage to find any referral codes when I signed up so I missed out on the free 500 points.
Once you join, be sure to complete your demographics as you will receive points for completion.
Completion of your demographics after signing up gives you free additional 750 points, even though they stated 1000 points on the website. 🤨
GrabPoints is known to have high pay rate for their surveys, and I would say most of the time, it is so. However, there are also instances which I have seen, that for the exact survey, LootUp.me pays slightly higher. This is not always the case though. Usually for those that uses Cint Surveys, GrabPoints do pay quite well.
I am located in Singapore so it might or might not be the same for other countries. You will have to observe your own surveys and payout. There is also a live feed on the website showing offers completions, and a leaderboard so you can refer to that too.
As what I have observed so far, some of their surveys do give a high payout, as compared to other GPT sites. However, that is provided that you do qualify for them.
I just went through my earned points history and I have qualified for two surveys above 3000 points so far. The highest survey payout I did so far is 5349 points, which is about USD$5.34.
On GrabPoints site, there are several surveys sites for you to choose from, and the highest payouts is usually from Cint Wall, as stated on their site that it pays up to $10. I would highly recommend that you try out Cint Wall, especially those with payouts above 1000 points.
Another site that is stated to pay up to $10 is Peanut Labs and I would say that yes, you can try them out now.
Previously, I would suggest that you don’t attempt it because I finished three surveys from them in total, with each survey taking up about half an hour, and upon completion when I clicked continue, I received an error so I did not get my reward. I tried to contact their (Peanut Labs) support via their website but it failed to send too.
After which, I read reviews about Peanut Labs and lots of people did not receive their rewards upon completion with them too so it seems like a norm. GrabPoints customer support got back to me after quite a while and explained that if I do not get paid, they don’t too, and suggested for me to reach out to their support again, but seriously, for a site support to not even work, I really can’t be bothered to waste my time and try. Especially after reading the reviews, and I attempted their surveys not once, but thrice and the same errors occurred, upon completion.
However, recently when I went into the site out of curiosity again, I realised their interface has changed so I decided to try out a short survey and it worked! I received my points this time!
I have only attempted a few highly paid surveys recently and so long I finished it, I managed to receive the points too. Thus, I believe they are worth trying out now, especially for the well paid surveys.
CPX Research is also recommended as it pays up to $5, but weirdly for me, I fail to qualify for most of the surveys here from CPX. However, from other sites like LootUp, I do qualify for many of the CPX surveys. 🤷🏻♀️
Yuno pays up to $3 but I only have surveys up to 1600 points (about USD$1.60) and I also had errors with one or two surveys that I took with them too. They also try to find you new surveys if you don’t qualify.
I like Dynata because if you fail to qualify for one, they look for other surveys for you. And once you complete one, you can continue with the next. Each survey done on Dynata over here in Singapore pays a standard USD$0.70. I think it’s higher at USD$1 over in the US.
There are two other sites, Your Surveys and Revenue Wall which you can try too. I have only tried Your Surveys so far, and they pay USD$0.85. Sometimes, Your Surveys also search for other surveys for you if you fail to qualify for one.
They also added a new Survey site PollFish, which does not pay well but they are usually short, so sometimes when I just want to do a short survey to hit my one survey quota for the day, I will try PollFish and especially those that are less than 5 minutes.
You can also watch videos here, but they are actually linked to external sites, which are Hideout TV and Lootably. Lootably is actually Loot.tv. You can read the reviews for them here: Hideout TV Review and Loot.tv Review. I would suggest using both if you can but Hideout TV is a better recommendation, provided you use LootUp too.
There are also Offer Walls which you can complete on GrabPoints, where you get rewards for downloading apps, playing games, completing trials or watching videos. I have yet to try these as they usually takes up more time and effort, like in games, they require completing certain number of levels over a period of 10 days etc.
There is a recent update (Sep 2022) to the amount of redemption points needed.
Gift cards and cash can be redeemed here on GrabPoints.
There are a variety to choose from like Roblox, Rixty, Karma Koin, Steam Wallet, and Minecraft Global Game Code where they each have their own minimum requirements. The minimum for these redemption is at least USD$10 (about 10,000 points) but for each one, there are varying amounts for the $10 withdrawal. For some, there are charges and for some, there aren’t. You will have to go into each one to decide which is for you.
You can also choose to redeem for Visa eReward Card (USD) and there are no charges! This is to say if you have 10000 points, you can redeem for a USD$10 directly. The minimum is USD$3 and the maximum is USD$200.
For PayPal, there are also changes to the redemption points where a standardised charge of 250 points is required. This makes it that some are better and some are worse, as compared to the previous. This means that when you accumulate more for your redemption, you lose out less.
(For example, withdrawing twice USD$25 = total 25250 x 2times = 50500 points but if you withdraw USD$50 at a go, you only need 50250 points.)
The minimum for PayPal withdrawal has been reduced and is now is 3250 points for USD$3 and the maximum is still USD$100 at 100250 points.
Just a note of warning if you are planning to save up your points for the highest redemption amount. As we will not know beforehand if something will happen to our account, or if any of their rules change and so happens that your account is affected.
I am not saying that something will happen but for me, if I am finding it tough to get high paying surveys that month and I feel that it will take awhile to attain 50000 points but I already have 25000 points, I will probably decide to withdraw 25k and pay the 250 charge each time, instead of waiting for a month or two to reach 50k since you really would not know if anything will happen to your account between now and then. Just my two cents worth.
How To Withdraw To PayPal On GrabPoints?
For PayPal payment, you will NEED to link your PayPal account in your GrabPoints account in order to make a withdrawal to it.
How To Link PayPal To GrabPoints?
To link your PayPal account to your email address, you first have to login to your GrabPoints account.
1) Go to “Menu” on the upper left, where the three lines are.
2) Click on “Profile” found under “My Account.”
3) Scroll down to locate and then click the “Connect to PayPal” icon.
4) You will be asked to Login To Your PayPal account. Yes, you have to login. After you have logged in, it is auto connected.
5) Finally, check and double confirm that you have the CORRECT phone number in your profile as you will need it next to do the withdrawal, as below.
I am not sure if it’s the case for all withdrawals, including the gift cards or only for PayPal withdrawal, since I have only used the PayPal method so far, but you need to make sure that the phone number in your profile is correct, because for the first withdrawal, you need to confirm your contact number.
Once that is all done, go to Gift Cards to redeem what you want. When you have chosen what you want, you can redeem it.
Click on Redeem and you will be asked to key in the Confirmation Code from GrabPoints. It is sent as an sms (text message) to the registered phone number in your profile. Once you get the code, key it in.
Then you can proceed to redeem for the reward that you want.
All these hassle above is only a first time thing. From the second withdrawal onwards, verification is no longer needed, so all you need to do is to choose your reward, and just redeem.
Proof Of Payment from GrabPoints:
The downside of GrabPoints is that there is sort of a “charge” for withdrawing to PayPal.
This is because 5000points = USD$5 but if you withdraw through PayPal, you have to have 5150 points, which means the “charge” is essentially USD$0.15, and it is cumulative, meaning for USD$10, you need to have 10300 points.
That said, it is still negligible and if you are interested to try GrabPoints out, you can get started with 500 points with my GrabPoints referral link: https://grabpoints.com/?ref=EX2YSS
Just to mention, recently I have observed something weird. As I have withdrawn USD$25 twice from GrabPoints already, and both times 25,750 points are used for redemption. However, when I wanted to redeem again in June, I realised the USD$25 in PayPal has increased to 26,750 points. I have no idea why or if it is because I have already withdrawn twice for that amount.
I have done a few small withdrawals to check if it will increase too after a few withdrawals but nope! Other than the $25 option, the rest of the PayPal withdrawals requirements remained the same. Thus, only the $25 requires a higher amount of points so I would suggest not to redeem that amount as you have to pay an extra 1000 points for nothing.
Therefore, if you do redeem your points, do check the required amount before redeeming.
Overall, I would say GrabPoints is worth signing up for as there are high surveys payouts, but those are also limited to whether you actually qualify for them. The lower payout ones may not be worth your time, so perhaps you can choose to just do the ones with higher payouts here and diversify to other GPT sites like LootUp.me for the lower paying ones.
All the best earning and be safe!! 💵🤑😷
