Looking for ways to earn some extra money from the comfort of your own home? Good, you’ve come to the right place.
The internet is awash with information telling us about weird and wonderful ways that we can get our mitts on more cash – and surveys are one that pop up time and time again.
So here we are, reviewing another survey website. This time, it’s one called LifePoints.
What you need to get started?
It’s completely free to sign up and only takes a few minutes. We were genuinely surprised at how quick and easy it was to sign up and navigate their website.
To take part, all you need is a smartphone or laptop and some spare time.
It’s worth mentioning that some surveys involve taking pictures of products – so without a camera, you may be limited with what surveys you can complete.
How much will you earn?
With each survey you complete, you get ‘life points’ which can be withdrawn as cold hard cash. Just be aware that you need to store up at least 550 life points before you can withdraw.
The amount of LifePoints you get for completing each survey varies. They start from around 25 life points, but if you’re lucky you may see some worth up to 1,500. Kerching!
For every 550 points you collect, you can withdraw £5. As you’ve probably guessed, it can take a while to build up enough life points to get a decent wad of cash. So, let’s face it, this is by no means a substitute for a full income. But it can supplement what you’re already earning.
How easy is it to do?
The surveys are pretty straight forward. Most of them just ask your opinion on a product or how often you buy it compared to another brand. Some more in depth surveys may ask for photographs as well.
But here’s something interesting to note. While testing the LifePoints website, we did come across something that makes it a little more difficult..
Sometimes, you will get half-way through a survey and it then tells you that you do not have the requirements to complete it. This is frustrating as you may spend time starting a survey, only to find that you can’t complete it and earn the life points.
Who is it suited to?
Completing surveys for LifePoints is suited to anyone who has free time, a bit of patience, and doesn’t mind being asked 134 questions about what kind of soap they last purchased.
Now, we know completing surveys isn’t the most exhilarating experience, but the more time you put into it, the more money you will make. So, be sure that you can see it through to the end before starting the survey.
- Free and easy to sign up
- Start earning LifePoints straight away
- No previous experience necessary
- It can take a while to build up enough life points to withdraw as cash
- You may not be able to complete all surveys if you do not match the criteria

That being said, it may be worth giving it a go even if you aren’t sure. And since we’re spending more time at home, LifePoints has got to be worth a shot. It beats binge-watching that series you’ve already watched ten thousand times.
