KidzEyes is an online research company that’s a pinch different than the many I talk about as they focus on kids only. You may have already guessed that just by reading the name.
This research company, a division of C+R Research, was founded in 1959, well before the internet, of course, and since then, created an online panel of sorts. If you have children aged six to 12 years old, this could be a panel to consider to make a few dollars in your spare time. If you share the money with your children or keep it yourself, I guess it’s up to you to decide. I’m not here to judge that one.
In today’s review, I will talk about the panel to show you how it works, what you can potentially make as well as if it’s worth your time. As in all of my reviews, I’m always 100% honest, only recommending services I would use.
Signing up for KidzEyes
To sign up for KidzEyes, it’s important that you have a child in the 6-12 age range that live in the United States. As long as you fit this demographic, you should be accepted.
To sign up, you can do so via the official website by following the join now tab. It’s located in the upper-right hand corner. Once there, the company will open a separate pop-up ad, asking you some demographic questions.
The cool thing about taking this screener is that the company will reward you with 500 KidzPoints, which is equivalent to $5. You can earn $5 in points for every child you register.
If you do decide to register your child, this entire process will take a few minutes.
Do keep in mind that even if you do sign up, you may not get accepted as they may not be accepting your zip code and/or demographic. It’s hard to say.
If you do get accepted, the company will ask that you wait for at least one to two weeks before receiving your first survey. Unlike most platforms, where you can sign in and start taking surveys by clicking on a link, KidzEyes will email you survey invites.
For this reason, it’s important that you whitelist their domain so that you don’t find your invites in your spam folder.
As for the types of survey invites your child will receive, it can include a variety of topics, including:
- TV shows
- product testing in house
Most of these surveys will revolve around hearing your opinion as well as your child’s. In many cases, you will have to sit next to your child and help read the questions so that they can better understand the topic.
How Many Surveys Will I Receive?
As for this question, it’s greatly dependent on your child’s demographic, but they state that most users will see about one to two invites a month. This tends to be below the industry standard.
Aside from earning points via surveys, the companies also offer polling opportunities, wherein your child can answer questions for the chance to win prizes and even more KidzPoints, sometimes to the tune of $100+.
How Much Are the Surveys Worth?
From my experience, most surveys are only a few minutes long, maybe 15 minutes at best. However, some of your longer surveys, which involve watching TV shows, can be much longer. In this instance, these surveys can pay much more. Generally, the longer the surveys take you, the more you can make.
On average, plan on making anywhere from as little as $2 to more than $20+ per survey.
With a one to two surveys invite a month average, you can expect to make $4 to $15+ a month, sometimes more, sometimes less.
KidzEyes will pay you in points, referred to as KidzPoints. The site makes it simple as every KidzPoint you earn is worth one penny. Once you earn at least 1,000 points, a $10 value, you can request a check. This check is then mailed to the address on file. Remember, you do get $5 in points for signing up your child, so your first payout can come faster than expected.
At this moment, this is the only option, unfortunately, and no PayPal or gift card options are available.
After you request a payout, it can take up to four weeks to receive your check.
So, these reviews aren’t always about me. Other people have a voice as well, of course. In this section, as in all of my review sections, I like to see what other people are saying, breaking it down into an easy-to-read pros and cons list.
- surveys tend to pay more than competitors
- short surveys
- backed by a legitimate company
- fun for kids
- $5 sign-up bonus per child
- safe for children as they are compliant with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act
- won’t make a lot (maybe $15 a month at most)
- some say they don’t receive a lot of invites
In the end, plan on making $15 a month. Whether you want to give it to your child as a reward or you want to keep it yourself, again, that’s entirely up to you. I’m not here to judge you on that one.
Backed by a very reputable research company, you can be assured you’re dealing with legitimate surveys that pay. For that reason, I will recommend them, but I wouldn’t put them high on my list simply due to the lack of survey invites.
As always, if you have used them and want to comment on them and/or you want to vent about your experience, then you’re welcome to do so in the comments below.
