How It Works

Product Report Card is not a run-of-the-mill survey company. They are different in many ways, and they place an emphasis on product feedback.

Signing up is free and simple. You will be asked for your phone number, but you will never be called unless you agree to take a phone survey. You will just be sent an SMS for confirmation purposes.

You earn your first five dollars simply by signing up. By completing your various profiles, such as your personal, home, and work profiles, you earn an extra $3.25. The profiles are simple and do not take long to fill out.

After a few days, you will start being sent emails about survey opportunities. These emails come a few times a week; sometimes a couple a day. Surveys can only be taken by clicking on the email links, not directly on the site.

If disqualified from any survey, 10 cents will be deposited into your account.

A few days after signing up, you will also receive an email telling you that you are ready to register your products. There are many products you can take surveys about if you own them, ranging from mobile devices to kitchen appliances. You must verify your ownership through photos and product/manufacturer details.

You will also sometimes be sent invitations for online and offline research conferences or studies, though you obviously will have to have very specific criteria to be eligible. These research programs can pay very nicely.

Once you have reached a balance of $25, you may request a payment. A check will be sent to you in 1-2 weeks. You may also request a pre-paid visa or Amazon gift card.

So, Is Product Report Card Worth It? Can It Really Be True?

You obviously won’t make a lot of money at Product Report Card. After all, there is a very limited amount of surveys available each week.

However, you certainly have nothing to lose. Even if you are disqualified from a survey, you still get 10 cents, so you will eventually reach $25, no matter what. The first time will take much faster because you will already have $8.25 from simply signing up and filling out your profiles.

An extra $25 now and then is not bad. It certainly doesn’t hurt. If you have extra time with nothing to do, you may like this company.

    I’ve joined sites such as this and as celeste said most are $50. I have even seen one at $100… $25 dollars does sound reasonable but in the past the survey sites I joined similar to this one barely had surveys I qualified for and I lost interest. Have you qualified for a decent amount of surveys?

      Hi Salvatore,

      I’m glad you asked. No, Product Report Card, at least last time I checked, only has surveys from time to time. When they do have surveys, you will get an email invite. The good part, however, is that you earn 10 cents even if you get disqualified. It doesn’t hurt to try out their surveys, because sooner or later you WILL reach $25. Another good thing is that they sometimes have focus groups and group research programs where you can make a nice amount of money, say $90, by attending a two-day research group or something. You may not qualify, because they need specific qualification, like people suffering from migraine headaches or something, but it is a possibility,

      I personally do not find it worth my time, because at most I will get an extra $25 or so in maybe a year or something like that. But again, that’s up to you, and if you think it is worth it for you, then by all means do it.

      All the best,

      Ben

        The problem with Product Report Card is getting paid from them. Last year, I completed a project for them that was $150, but I had to file a BBB complaint to get paid, as I was getting the run-around from them. Same with this year, as I completed a $50 study and this company is giving me the run-around again. I gave them another chance, and it’s still the same shady behavior. Be careful with this company. I have now filed another BBB complaint trying to get the $50 I earned for the study I completed.

          Hi Dante!

          Thanks for sharing your personal experiences and pointing that out! I am not surprised to hear. Survey sites in general are known to not pay you when needed, or to only pay you when you file BBB complaints. That’s why I personally don’t recommend them.

          I checked and they have a D rating with the BBB! That’s pretty bad! It also has a completely negative review rating! I didn’t know about that when I wrote this review.

          So thanks for letting us know and making sure others are careful to stay away from this company!

          All the best,

          Ben

    Thanks for the review. The payout threshold of $25 seems very reasonable. Some sites I’ve been to will only pay out after $50. I’ve signed up to some of these survey programs but because I live in South Africa I don’t qualify. Do you know if South Africans qualify for the surveys with product report card? Thanks again.

      Hi Celeste,

      As far as I know you can join Product Report Card, but you may not qualify for all the surveys.

      All the best,

    I have never heard of this until now. It seems like it would be suitable for someone that can only work from home. Maybe not as the sole source of income, but one of several ways to make money online. It could seem like a scam at first but if someone did their research they would probably find it’s legit. People always want to share their opinion, right?

      Hi Scott,

      Yes, it seems legit. For someone who makes a full-time income working at home, however, I think it would not be worth the time — instead, such a person should focus on building up a long-term business that can bring in a real full-time income.

      However, for someone who doesn’t mind doing surveys for some extra few bucks here and there, this would work well.

    I’ve heard of product report card before and seen many complaints that even with the $8 start it takes awhile to reach the $25 payout. I didn’t realize that their surveys weren’t available through their website and that links to them are sent in emails. Don’t they only let you take a survey if you actually have the product? If this is the case then most users are probably disqualified from quite a few surveys.
    If you only make money by being disqualified (the 10 cents you mentioned), you’d have to take 250 surveys to reach $25…I’ve taken surveys in the past and they usually take 10-25 minutes or longer. If you were generous and said each one would only take 10 minutes it’d take 40 hours to reach $25…
    I think I’ll be sticking to other ways to make money online! I am curious though if you know the payout for surveys that you do qualify for. ‘

      There are general surveys that don’t require you to own a product.These pay around $0.75 to $2. If you get disqualified, you get disqualified at the beginning, so it only takes a minute to earn that ten cents.

      But you’re right, it does take a while to earn $25. So this is not a big money maker, and it’s up to you to decide whether such a thing is worth it for you.

      All the best,

      🙂
