    Survey Stashing: GlobalTestMarket hints & tips 12th May 09 at 1:02 PM
    What!!!8217;s this about? Willing to give your view on the Labour Party, answer questions about your sex life, or test out the latest moisturiser? If so, it!!!8217;s possible to earn 100s a year, without any special skill or talent. It!!!8217;s all about stashing cash from filling in online surveys or taking part in focus groups.

    The first point of call is read the full Survey Stashing guide.
    Then having found the best survey sites, this discussion is specifically to talk about feedback and tips for the survey site


    GlobalTestMarket


    If you want to discuss survey sites in general please go to the Survey Stashing Discussion.

    If you!!!8217;ve got a suggestion/tip

    Simply click reply and add your suggestion, though its worth scanning down first to check it's not been duplicated.

    Global Test Market is one of my favourite survey sites. They pay out at 1000 points which equals around 33 with the exchange rate being low.

    I receive quite a few surveys which are easy to complete.

    Definitely worth a look.

    Do banks charge for cashing dollar cheques?

    • 14th May 09, 1:16 PM
    Whenever I have cashed dollar cheques in the past the bank has charged several pounds eating massively into the payout. Does anybody using Global Test market know of a way around this?

    Hi,
    I use Global test market all the time and have earnt about 70 in 6 months. The cheques that I receive are always issued in pounds sterling from NatWest, so cost nothing to cash. I have contacted Global Test Market by email a few times and they have always been very helpful, so perhaps ask if they can issue the cheques in sterling.
    LBM Jul 2010: 29717.06
    July 2012: 19548.40 Paid 34.2%

    but im only at 550
  • janey_uk
    I have been a member for about three weeks and get near daily surveys, all of which take 2-3 minutes before telling me I don't meet the profile. It is quite frustrating and I'm wondering if I'm wasting my time. Does anyone else have this problem?

    I had a cheque from GTM about a month ago and it was for 33.88.

    Not sure how the exchange rate has changed recently though.

    I've been with Global for about 4 years now and received a few payouts. Whilst yes, I do get alot of 'don't meet profile' you are awarded with 5 points for it. 1 point = $0.05, which all adds up for when you do get to do a survey.
    Also worth mentioning, both myself and my partner recently got to test products through Global. Partner got to keep hers, I had to send back but got a 3 Boots voucher as well as 100+ points for taking part.

    I get loads of surveys from GTM but rarely qualify - just twice in five months! Does anyone have any hints and tips?

    With the Halifax (or should I call them Llalifax now they are merged/taken over with/by Lloyds?) you get $ cheques paid in for NO FEE.

    Only above that carries a penalty.

    All this is irrelevant as mentioned by others, GTM pay in your local currency for many nationalities, UK being fortunate in being one covered.

    I just received a cheque for 34 last month, no problems with conversion from dollars any more.

    More than half of all surveys I get to start, end up saying I do not qualify.

    That is, if they have not said the survey is closed already.

    So do not worry.

    At least if you start a survey you get 5 points art least.

    I seem to remember that if you get part way through you get more points if you eventually bomb out.

    This is unlike almost any other survey site, except MyView (from memory) where you get eff-all from wasting 20 minutes of your time on a survey that bombs out at the end saying you do not qualify after all.

    Greenfield are the worse culprits for this kind of behaviour, Google them to see if their reputation has got any better.

    They ruined Ciao Surveys (now sold off to someoneelse) when they took over Ciao and hived off the survey side of Ciao consumer review site.

    Ciao surveys used to be OK (especially contributing to the small 5 Ciao payout minimum).

    However I digress.

    So I stop here.
