Univox Community Review: One to Try?

Some of the links may be from a sponsor. Advertising Disclosure

The Univox Community will reward you for taking surveys.  And, all you need to do is share your feedback on the products you already use to get rewarded for your time.

It’s one of the many companies on the market that claim to do so, but are they worth your time?

In today’s review, I want to review the Univox Community.

Is it worth your time?

Should you even sign up to see?

We’re about to find out!

As always, I’m 100% honest, and I only recommend companies I would use.

With that intro out of the way, let’s jump in and see what this company is all about.

What is the Univox Community?

Unlike many survey sites that tell you a pinch about their company history, I couldn’t find much about them.  All I could find out is that they have more than three million members and this continues to grow today.  This isn’t always a red flag, but it’s nice to know who you’re dealing with.  This company is not to be confused with the Univox musical instrument brand.

Signing up for Univox Community

To join the Univox Community, they will ask for the basics, such as your name, address as well as your email.  It takes maybe two minutes at most to sign up.

Most of the time, the company will give you $2 just for joining.  Just take a glance at the main website promotions to see if it’s active when you sign up.

This community is open to everyone 18+ years old, worldwide.

Univox Dashboard

After you sign up and confirm your email, Univox will ask you to fill out your profile survey.  This is fairly standard among most survey companies as they will want to know more about you so that you can receive targeted survey invites.  After all, you wouldn’t want to receive a baby food survey when you don’t even have a baby right?

In filling out this profile survey, which should only take about 10 minutes, Univox will add $2 worth of points to your balance and you can start taking surveys right away.  Now, keep in mind that you can take surveys at any time, even if you don’t fill out the profiler, but the survey invites you do see may have a higher disqualification rate.

Univox works mainly with surveys and you can access everything in your menu, which can be found in the left-side menu or accordion menu in the case you’re using your phone.

In order, looking at the screenshot above, this is what you can access:

  • your dashboard
  • surveys
  • points
  • account
  • redeem points
  • refer a friend
  • polls
  • wall of fame
  • contact
  • privacy policy

So, what does each tab mean? 

I’m glad you asked!  I will go through each below.


This is where you will spend 99.9% of your time.  On this page, you will see the many surveys that best match your interests.

As you can see in the screenshot, you can see how many points the survey is worth, the time it will take as well as how long it has been live for.  Pay close attention to the time it will take and make sure it’s worth your time.  You don’t want to take a 30-minute survey if it’s only going to pay $0.10 in rewards.

When you find one of interest, just click on it and answer the questions to get compensated.  Just keep in mind, like most survey sites, you won’t qualify for all of them.

How many surveys can I expect?

Your dashboard should always have surveys available, but as I mentioned, you won’t always qualify for all of them.  Taking the industry average of a 10-20% completion rate, you should expect to complete around 5~ surveys a day, more or less, all depending on how often you log into the site.  Honestly, if you were to log in and use the site all day, you could see a rate much higher.

How much can I make?

With surveys ranging from as little as 10 to more than 250 points, you could plan on making anywhere from 10 to 500 points a day.  Every point is worth a penny, so doing the math, I would say it’s safe to say you could easily make $0.10 to $5 a day.  Again, this will greatly depend on how often you log in and complete your surveys.

Even if you don’t qualify for a survey, Univox will still credit you with five points.

Profile Surveys

Your “Profile Surveys” section will remain active as long as you don’t finish the profile screener.  Even if you do finish the initial screener at first and redeem your $2, they may continue to ask questions, in which you can find here.

If you ever sign up for any survey site, I can’t stress how important it is to fill out these profile surveys so that you receive targeted survey invites.  If you don’t, you will get survey invites, but you will find that you will be disqualified as you won’t qualify for them.  This can get frustrating.

My Points

In the “My Points” section, you can see the total balance in your account after all of your past redemptions.

This can come in handy if you want to look at your history to see what surveys were approved as well as which surveys you disqualified for.  Once you earn enough, you can redeem your points.

Redeem Points

When it comes time to redeem your points, this is where you will want to head to.

As mentioned, you will get a set number of points for every survey you complete.  Every point is worth a penny, so it makes it easy to determine how much you’re making.

At the time of this review, you can choose from four rewards, including:

  • PayPal
  • Amazon
  • Virtual Master Card
  • Tango (rewards for many retailers)

Depending on your user level, you will need at least 1,000 points to cash out, but if you’re just starting on the basic level, you will need 2,500 points, about $25 in value.  This is quite high in comparison to competitors, but the ambassador level starts at 1,000 points, a much better option.

As you complete surveys, you can rise in the ranks.

Refer a Friend

Like the many survey companies that pay you to refer friends, Univox does the same.  For every friend you refer, you will receive 100 points whenever your referral completes at least one survey.

The Pros and Cons

As in all of my reviews, I like to see what other people are saying online and coming up with a simple pros and cons list.  Keep in mind that all sites will always have both pros and cons, so it’s really up to you to decide what’s best for your interests.

The Pros

  • steady supply of surveys
  • disqualification bonus
  • small sign-up bonus
  • refer a friend bonuses

The Cons

  • high $25 minimum threshold
  • customer service seems to be lacking
  • low Google Play rating for app (3/5)

Final Thoughts

5/10Eh, Univox is in the middle.

If you want to take surveys, it appears you can make money, but it’s not one I would put high on my list.  I would rather point you in the direction of the bigger players in the industry like Survey Junkie and Swagbucks.  These companies have way more surveys and only require a few dollars to cash out.  These companies are much better, trust me on that one.

I’m not saying Univox is a dud, it’s just that it doesn’t offer anything special.  While I’m not discouraging you from signing up, you may be annoyed with the higher minimum payout rate.  That’s just me.

As always, if you want to comment on Univox and/or you have a question/concern, feel free to leave a comment below.
