Default anyone understand how these 'Globogift' certificates work?

Any one who does surveys with Zoompanel may have heard of them as they use Globogift as their reward voucher...received my gift voucher in an email today with instructions on how to redeem it...you input your country, choose which retailer you want to redeem it for, then go to check out and put your reward ID in...this is where i got confused...it converted the amount from 25us dollars to british pounds...about 15 i think, told me to input my debit card details for the other 9!! i shouldn't have to pay to top it up, it's supposed to be a reward, i would be quite happy to just have the 15 it converted to but it wouldn't let me pass without insisting on my bank details....anyone familiar with this system who could help me get my head around it? much appreiciated...

I've never seen Globogift certificates on Zoom, when did they start doing these?

not sure...think they've been there all the time but you have to have quite a few zoompoints before you can redeem a $25 globogift voucher...i think i went to the gift area and where there are 3 portfolios it's in the one which has prizes which you can get when you get that many points...the other portfolios with less points have other prizes in.

I had one too. I had a problem too, I had to choose a voucher but their conversion left me short of the money I needed for it, so I had to settle for one worth quite a bit less than the 'reward' I should have had (for a 10 pounds one). I haven't done a Zoompanel survey since (not that this is their fault), it is hardly worth the hassle anyway and definitely not when there is no straightforward way to get the money you're owed...

last time I claimed a globogift cert I made the value up to the level I needed so that I didn't lose out. I have just put in a claim today so can update on progress if you like. They are genuine though and I've never had an problems with them.
