ProductReportCard connects consumers and subject-matter experts, such as you, with their clients to help influence their products. In other words, it’s yet another survey site, one of the many online. You answer questions and get paid for your time in doing so. You won’t get rich, but it could be an okay way to make a few dollars here and there. As long as you have that mindset, it makes survey sites such as these that much more enjoyable.
In today’s review, I wanted to check out Product Report Card.
How much can you make?
Is it legit? Is it a scam?
What are other people saying?
As in all of my reviews, I’m 100% honest and only recommend what I feel is worth your time.
If you want to make a few dollars in your spare time, let’s see if Product Report Card is worth signing up for.
What is Product Report Card?
Product Report Card is a market research company based in Denver, Colorado. According to the company’s official LinkedIn page, they have 51-200 employees and is privately held. However, closely looking at who’s affiliated with the company seems as if it were survey takers saying they “work” with Product Report Card. Essentially, the company is much smaller than they appear.
The company was founded in 2012 and it’s 100% free to join.
In researching Product Report Card, it appears to be a legitimate company, one that rewards you for your feedback and opinions.
To sign up for an account, Product Report Card asks for your basic information, such as your email as well as your name, gender, birth and a few other tidbits. It’s no different than most survey sites, as they need to know this demographic information so that they can send you targeted survey opportunities. Without this information, it’s hard for them to send you surveys that you qualify for.
The entire process takes about five minutes to complete and allows you to access your dashboard immediately after signing up and confirming your email.
As mentioned, it’s 100% free to sign up and you must be at least 16 years old to join and reside mainly in the United States and United Kingdom. However, it does appear that you can sign up from anywhere, but you will be limited with invites if you were to sign outside the countries mentioned.
Your Dashboard and Profile Surveys
Once in, the company will ask you to fill out your “profiles” more in depth so that they can, again, get to know you better. These profiles are 100% optional, however, I highly encourage that you fill them out so that you can maximize your survey invite opportunities.
As you can see, I was presented with 11 profiles, ranging from my food preferences to my gamer profile. If you were to fill out all of these profiles, it would probably take you about 15-20 minutes to complete.
Again, you don’t have to complete these profiles, but if you don’t you won’t see a lot of survey invites.
99% of the time, you will head straight to the “studies” tab, which you can see near the top of your page. This is where all of your money-making opportunities will be.
When I was writing this, I only had one survey opportunity, as seen above, but it was a decent option. It paid $3 for 7 minutes of my time. Granted, there’s no guarantee I will get accepted, but I can at least try to see if I can get credited.
Do note that these invites will also come to your email on file, so be sure to be on the lookout because the good surveys go fast.
The surveys, like any survey site, is straightforward. Just open the survey, answer the questions honestly, and if you finish in its entirety, you get the reward specified.
Whenever you do surveys, just make sure they are worth your time. And, what I mean by that is that you shouldn’t do a 20-minute survey for $0.50 or a one-hour survey for $2. Instead, look for something like above, a $3 for seven minutes or maybe 10 minutes for $2. Use your judgment and only complete those that make sense. All surveys pay out via cash only, so you won’t see any silly points system.
What I did read is that Product Report Card has a lower-than-average disqualification rate as long as you fill out these profiles in detail.
And, lastly, what makes Product Report Card somewhat different is that you can qualify for research studies such as in-home test as well as getting rewarded whenever you register an appliance.
Whenever you review a product you own, you can earn about $0.50; however, in-home tests can pay much more.
If at all possible, be sure to register all of the appliances you have to see if you can earn more.
The biggest downfall to Product Report Card is that you need at least $25 to cash out. This is one of the highest redemption rates on the survey market, the main reason I think they aren’t as popular as they should be.
Once you hit that threshold, it takes about 48 hours to receive your payout. You can choose from a paper check option or a variety of gift cards, such as Amazon.
What the Internet is Saying
On Sitejabber.com, the site had a very poor 2/5 rating with 29 reviews. Many of the complaints revolved around being disqualified and/or being misled after working on the surveys for what seemed like 10+ minutes. This is common among the survey companies, but many people were unhappy that they would disqualify for a lot of sites.
On another website, ConsumersAdvocate.org, a lot of reviewers said the same thing as Sitejabber.com users. They didn’t like that they were disqualified after 10 minutes of completing a survey. Others said they had many technical glitches while answering questions.
Final Thoughts7/10Product Report Card is a legit company and it seems to be another survey company floating around in cyberspace. If you were to sign up, I feel you could earn maybe $5 to $20 at most per month, maybe less. It’s going to greatly depend on your demographics and how often you log in to take these surveys. It’s not going to make you much.
If you do sign up, you will get paid; however, it will take you some time because you need at least $25 in rewards. For that reason, I recommend Swagbucks and Superpay.me as they both have very low minimums. Think $1 minimums and instant payouts if you qualify. You can earn much more with these sites and you can cash out much quicker.
In the end, I would at least check it out, as long as you’re happy with making $10 to $20~ per month. People do quite well, but it will greatly depend on who you are. For that reason, I recommend you test it out to see how well you can do with it.
That’s going to wrap it up.
