ZoomPanel is a survey site owned by a company called SurveyMonkey.
SurveyMonkey is accredited by the Better Business Bureau and currently has an A+ rating.
This is not one of the best panels out there, but I’ll give you all the facts and let you decide what to think of this one.
Note: ZoomPanel recently merged with its sister panel – OneOpinion!
How To Start
Getting started with this survey site is both fast and easy.
On the sign-up page, they will ask for your email, name, address, gender, and birthday.
These are all standard questions that you would have to answer with any panel.
Once you give them all of this information they will send you an email that has your account information and a link to your first survey.
Right now they are actually giving everyone 50 points just for signing up. I’ll tell you about the points when it’s time to talk about rewards.
How They Operate
Generally, ZoomPanel sends out survey invitations.
Sometimes panels that operate strictly by invitations can be a pain because you have no control over what you earn or how much you participate.
However, you do not have to worry about that with this site.
In this case you will receive plenty of invitations. For the most part you should get around 5 invitations each day.
If you sign up for multiple panels to maximize your earnings this will be more than enough to keep you busy.
What You Can Get
For each survey you take you will be rewarded with a certain number of points.
That number varies from survey to survey, but generally they stay between 25 and 150 points each.
Once you have at least 1,000 points you can start cashing them in for all kinds of things.
Some of the categories include movies, gift cards, music, books, electronics, and even a few luxury items. T
he more points you have to trade in the more options you will have available.
Also, since you only need 1,000 points to start cashing them in it doesn’t take long to get your first reward.
Unfortunately one thing this panel does not offer is cash. ZoomPanel has regular sweepstakes drawings for cash but you will never be paid directly for taking one of their surveys.
There is one other thing you need to be aware of, and it’s not necessarily a good thing.
You need to keep your account active.
If you just let it go and stop taking surveys for 3 months your account will be deleted by the system.
This also means that you can lose any points you have saved when your account is removed.
It’s not very hard to avoid this; you just need to know it can happen.
Aside from the people who complain because their account has been deleted, most people enjoy taking surveys with this panel.
It’s easy to get some cool rewards and there are always plenty of invitations.
However, some people do complain that it is difficult to find the reward you want because of the way the site is set up.
People generally agree that this panel isn’t great but it isn’t horrible either.
I wouldn’t say that there is actually anything “wrong” with this panel, but the fact that they do not offer cash is a deal breaker for some.
If you are interested in taking surveys for prizes then this may be something for you to look into.
It all depends on what you want to get from your efforts.
So do you want to sign up for the fun of it?
