VIP Voice Surveys Review: Is It Legit Or Not?

Links & ads you may click on this blog pay the bills & keep this site free for you. Thanks for supporting!

Unfortunately opinions are like belly buttons, everyone has them. But let's face it, not everyone wants to hear your “two cents”. Fortunately there are many companies that do and would gladly pay you for it. So today in this VIP Voice Surveys Review we'll discuss if this particular company is worth your time because as we know not many paid online surveys are worth even exploring.

Who is VIP Voice?

VIP Voice was once known as The NPD Group. Apparently they rebranded recently. The original company has been around since 1967 doing market research way before the web existed. Ultimately they're a company that does market research and pays users like us to share our feedback about various topics. At the time of this review VIP Voice / The NPD Group has a positive A rating on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) if that means a lot to you. It doesn't to me and you should read why here.

How Does VIP Voice Work?

You sign up for FREE by clicking here and then confirm your email. You then login and fill in some demographic information about yourself which will help determine what surveys you will receive. The more information you provide usually results in more surveys but that's assuming you're in a demographic the companies care about. Later you'll be invited to take a survey online via email (assuming you fit a certain demographic profile). Depending on the length of the survey you are rewarded a certain number of VIP Voice Points or rewards.

How Do You Earn VIP Voice Points or Rewards?

So like most paid online survey companies you are paid by their own monetary system. VIP Voice works differently in that the points you earn can be used on entering sweepstakes or bidding on prizes. But you can't convert the points to money. You can read all about that here. Sigh… You could probably stop reading this VIP Voice review right about now and I wouldn't be mad at you!

Did you know that unlike VIP Voice you make actual cash taking surveys at sites like You can also make money doing what you already do online like reading emails, watching videos, visiting websites and more at, and But if you're looking for an opportunity to earn a living working part time or full time online, then check out My Best Work At Home Recommendation.

VIP Voice Survey Complaints

Like any company VIP Voice has it's weaknesses so we night as well get them out of the way. As always because a company has complaints or cons doesn't mean they're a flat out scam. It just means there are things you should be aware of since you may not want to deal with them. Speaking of which, let us explore my first major gripe.

  • Show Me The Money!

Look here, there are plenty of other great survey panels that get it right and will pay you for every survey you take. But VIP Voice must be smoking something if they think that giving users points that they can enter and HOPE will win them a sweepstakes or prize is appealing. It's not! There are too many other great options that value our time more and will pay us!

  • Stop Being Elusive, It's not Cute!

I've read that VIP Voice doesn't even tell you how many points you'll earn in their survey email invitations. Most companies will send an email that will detail how much you will earn and how long the survey will take so you can quickly determine if it's worth the effort or not. But given their reward system, I guess it really doesn't matter knowing how much you'll make anyway because it's not like you can cash it out later. Sigh..

  • Where's the international love?

Unfortunately for my brothers and sisters that live abroad VIP Voice currently only supports the U.S. & Canada. Don't take it personal though. It's usually just business reasons why these extra money opportunities don't operate in other countries. But you can check out my International Work From Home page for options that may work for you. See? Eddy loves you.

VIP Voice Alternatives

The great thing about the internet and making money online is it's like dating. There are plenty more hot prospects to choose from that are actually worth your time. You deserve more boo. So with that said here are some other great survey companies that may be worth your time and effort that will pay you real cash or points that can be used for cash!

If all that's going on at VIP Voice isn't something you would be keen on, don't worry. With sites like,, and you're sure you'll be working for actual money. But hey, that's just me!

So Is VIP Voice Legit

Everyone seems to have a different definition about what's considered a scam or not when it comes to making money online. I tend to be more simple simon about my definition. So with that in mind, yes you can earn rewards with VIP Voice. So technically no VIP Voice isn't a scam. Now would I personally recommend wasting… I mean spending your time with VIP Voice Surveys? Hell to the nah when you consider the alternatives I listed above.

  1. here is a positive. I am a member of VIPvoice and although I don’t make money per say I won a bid and received a 70 in smart sharp tv . it took me almost 2 years to earn the points but 70 in tv for taking surveys and recently I won a bid for a multi media blue tooth system. I have in the past won 2/ 100 dollar prizes and I only use 25 points a day . A survey earns you 500 points or 200 points so 25 a day to win prizes is worth my time and with all the other points you save even if it takes u a year to win a decent prize.

    • Sounds like you’re a very lucky person winning all this stuff. You should play the lotto too. lol
      But seriously thanks for sharing your experience.

  2. I see previous messages are from several years ago. Maybe it is no longer active, but this is my complaint:

    After using VIP Voice surveys for several years I received a $25 VIP Voice Visa card and activated it a few days ago. It was not active yesterday when I tried to use it in a grocery store.
    I tried to login as I have many times in the past. It will not accept the username and password I know correct because printed a record of them.
    When I tried to get to my account it was deactivated for reasons I am accused of something I know nothing about and cannot get to a place where I can send a message. So I sent that statement by e-mail to the company hoping I will get a good answer.

  3. Hi Eddy,

    First thing that came to my mind while reading your article was it sounds like your playing the lottery. I don’t know about anyone else, but I want to know what I’m getting paid and it will be money. I was shocked to learn companies actually do that.

    • Hey Chris,

      I feel the same way. It just doesn’t make “cents” in my mind to spend the same amount of time on surveys with this company when I can go elsewhere and have the guarantee to be paid for my time not the hope of winning something. So I totally agree with you. I can’t say I’m shocked though. If people didn’t sign up for opportunities like this then they wouldn’t exist. But clearly they have enough people that think it’s worth it or being paid to sign up for it. Either way, thanks for chiming in!

  4. Hi Eddy,

    Since the promise of something that may or may not be there, aka a chance to win something is sort of like throwing a needle from an air plane that’s 10 thousand feet in the air and hoping it lands in a field that’s close enough to get to…well, you get the idea. Since I’ve learned to value my time and my opinion they gotta do more than what they offer. So I’m passing on this one. Something that comes home pretty clearly in trying to find a good way to build each stream of income, is that time really does have great worth. I’ve had to really learn to see my time as a valuable thing, it doesn’t come back once it’s gone so it’s a good thing to use it wisely.

  5. Yep, I think I’ll pass this one by. In answer to your question on our opinions, Eddy, yes, I feel they’re probably legit in the strict sense. But the strict sense isn’t good enough for me. I don’t mind doing “little” things that make the money even if it’s a little. It has a way of adding up. But it has to pay me actual money. I’m frankly getting sick of these “prizes, points…” ad infinitum.

    I’ll have to join the rest of the ones you have listed. I’m also with Survey Savvy and Toluna. What do all of you think of those?

    • Hey Ana,

      It’s always great to hear from you and get your insight. Obviously I’m totally there with you. I definitely like little ways to make money because they add up especially if they’re easy and things I already do. But I agree the whole prize reward thing sucks. And I don’t even mind points or whatever other funny money as long as I can redeem it for the real stuff. But I’m not spending my time on the hopes of winning something when I can be guaranteed to earn something with other programs. So we’re on the same page.

      Survey Savvy is a good one and I’ve been with them for years. Toluna I reviewed here.

      I hope my reviews help you. Thanks for chiming in as always!

  6. These paid survey’s never work for me, always seem to get
    screened out, not to mention, I’ve been waiting for a survey
    from paid viewpoint for months just as i almost earned enough to cash out…..go figure, seems it’s all a waste of time.
    But hey, thanks for the heads up.

    • Steve, unfortunately that’s the nature of the beast with surveys. If you don’t fit a profile that companies want to hear from you won’t get a survey. I know people get frustrated and blame the survey company. But it’s really a supply and demand thing.

      That said I agree PaidViewPoint has been quiet lately for me as well. I know they’re good people over there and do pay. You might want to log into your account and check to see if there are any surveys in there. Sometimes I had surveys waiting but never received an email notification. I don’t know if the email gremlins got them. But it could be a possibility. If that’s not the case it’s the whole supply and demand thing.

      Ultimately this is why we don’t depend on one stream of income and we do various little things to make money online. Fortunately we cover many of them right here. Thanks for chiming in buddy. I appreciate it!

  7. I’m sure they’re legit. I was signed up with several online survey companies and it was always the same; if you fit the demographic you can either win points or get entered in a “chance to win.” And if they do pay cash (like .50) they tighten it up so much that you won’t get into any. And they’re the most tedious things in the world. That’s my opinion. There are better ways to make fifty cents. I’d rather do crowdsourcing hits. Heck of a way to do market research. My personal review of any online survey platform is pleh!

    • Hey Marilyn,

      Thanks for sharing your opinion. I tend to limit my survey activities to a very select few. Otherwise I find them to be too tedious as well. There are definitely easier ways to make similar money online with other options. Again thanks again for the feedback! I appreciate it!

    • Rob, I’ve never heard of this company and can’t find much online about it. As such I would pass. You never want to be the guinea pig. I only stick with companies where I can do research and find some type of feedback. So with that said stick with things that we recommend. At least you know they have been researched.

  8. Eddy,
    As you asked for our opinions about this particular survey company that you analyzed, here is mine. It clearly seems as if VIP is a survey opportunity that one should pass on and not even bother going through the registration process. I used to belong to a lot of survey sites, but now do only a few – “Springboard America” and “Yougov”. At least with those sites, you are rewarded in some way by the company if nothing else but their thanks with the fact that you spent time during your busy day to complete one of their surveys. I detest a survey company where you begin by answering 5 – 7 questions and then all of a sudden you’re told that you don’t qualify to finish the rest and they end up giving you nothing. I’m sorry to say this but a company that you recently graded as above average for the opportunity that they were offering had the same philosophy. I joined this company’s site and soon began receiving survey opportunities. Well, after 6 or 7 times when after starting each initial survey, answering 5 – 8 questions on every occasion I was told “Sorry, you don’t qualify to complete the rest of the survey”. I got nothing out of it for the time that I invested in each case. I soon quit that survey site immediately believing that they’re nothing but a scam. VIP looks, feels, and smells like a survey site opportunity that one would NOT want to be a part of – and for the reasons that I stated. Just my two cents however, but I’ve been doing surveys for over a dozen years now and at this point I can tell the “real deal” from the imposters. Thanks a lot!


    • Jeff,

      Thanks for sharing your experience and thoughts.
      Unfortunately surveys tend to be based on supply and demand. If you don’t have the demographic profile they’re looking for, you’ll be rejected. That said when we sign up for these survey companies we usually provide our info so you would think they know if we meet the requirements or not. But that’s not always the case.

      So with that said, It doesn’t mean the company is a scam or less than legitimate as you implied. It just means you’re not what they’re looking for at the moment. Now is it to say there aren’t some shady companies out there that are probably collecting free information and not paying you? No of course not. There are definitely some companies that do this. But it’s hard to prove.

      Personally the only ones I still use just from a time standpoint is PollBuzzer, InstantCashSweepStakes, PaidViewPoint. I like them because I’m in and out and I’m always guaranteed to make money. There are other ones I do recommend from my past experience and research I’ve done. That said surveys can be an iffy thing. But again I think people confuse the whole concept of supply and demand with some type of shady activity. It’s annoying but again can be avoided by just focusing on companies that always pay you regardless if you qualify or not and there are only a few that do.

      In any event, I really do appreciate your insight and feedback!

  9. You say that WA is free. No it’s not. It cost me some where around 400. 00 dollars. Which was a waste of money. Did I get lost? you bet. Did I call for help of course? They
    would not answer, and
    when they did they would tell you where to go to read for the info you were asking for. There are a lot of things that you do not understand by reading alone. You need for some one to explain, take you by the hand step by step. You and them promise that, but once you fork out the money you all disappeare. I thought highly in you, but what an expensive let down.

    • Tony,

      It is. You can stay a starter member for as long as you want and that’s totally FREE. You have the option of upgrading to the premium if you find value which clearly you did initially. When people get lost, it’s as easy as sending a private message to any of us, using live chat or posting a comment right under a lesson. If you don’t get a response it usually means you weren’t specific with your question so people didn’t know how to respond to you. That said I don’t ever remember receiving a private message from you because if I did I would have been able to help you as I have many other members who reach out to me.

      The lessons are clearly laid out in a linear path, they include text and video so you can literally watch what needs to be done. The only time I’ve seen people really get confused is because they’re jumping around the lessons and not following them step by step as they’re laid out. I go into more details on how to get help guaranteed at WA right here.

      So I’m sorry you didn’t full advantage of the community and all the various ways you could get help. But it’s like the saying goes, you can lead a horse to water…

      WA has been a great investment in myself that has helped me reach thousands of people who I’ve helped make money and avoid scams. And I’ve been fortunate enough to make money in the process which has been a win win. If it wasn’t for what they taught me, most of you wouldn’t know me or benefit from the research I do and the opportunities I find. So it’s been a great investment for me. But I’ve made sure to get my full worth out of it by using it completely. If I’m frustrated about something I’ve reached out to Kyle and Carson and they’ve always responded. If i didn’t understand something I’ve always been able to get an answer using a quick search which is always my first line of defense because it does actually work and there is usually an article or training that covers what I want. But if by some miracle there isn’t, I always have live chat, being able to blog my question or private messaging people.

      So it’s hard to believe you’ve done any of this. Sorry if you think I let you down and you think lower of me. I stand by recommendation and will continue to promote WA not solely because of the money. Because truth be told I can actually promote other things that make me way more. I promote it because I believe in the guys that run it and what they teach. I’m living proof it works. But I’ve put in the time to make sure it works for me. Like any business that’s what it takes! So thanks for chiming in even though it has nothing to do with the article. I wish you the best in whatever endeavor your take on.

    • Eddy, I gave another reply about WA but it was refused as spam. Why in the world would my reply be refused? It was just a question about WA?

    • Ana,

      I figured out what the issue was. It was the anti-spam comment plugin that was acting up. I’ve changed it and it seems like you can easily reply to previous comments now.

    • Hey Adam,

      It’s not so much they’re not upfront because they are. So I’ll give them that. But regardless, their reward model just sucks in my opinion and that’s why it’s a waste of time. But I appreciate you chiming in. Clearly we’re on the same page.

  10. Hi Eddy,
    I ran across VIP voice awhile back. I believe it was through Inbox Dollars and was paid a small amount to sign up. I never looked at it again. I wasn’t about to waste my time on a lottery. If I want to throw time/money away, that is what the state lottery is for. Lol. I do remember tho that VIP was very flashy and made it seem you would be winning amazing prizes left and right. I was so positive I would that my fingers clicked right away.

    • Hey HKFan!

      It’s always great to hear from you! See at least you were smart. You got paid for signing up. That’s the only time I think it’s worth signing up for companies like this. Because at least you’re guaranteed to make money at that point. But you’ve hit it on the head with your state lottery comment! LMAO That is so freaking true! Thanks for the great insight and making me laugh! How have you been doing in WA?

  11. Wow! I can enter sweepstakes or bid on prizes anywhere. My time is valuable , too! Even if I am not paid a large sum, it all adds up and in cash too. No thanks, I think I will pass on this one and thanks, Eddy for the tips!!

    • I totally agree with you Sandy! I don’t know why they think that trading our valuable time would be worth an sweepstakes entry when we can do that anywhere for free with less effort. That’s a great point! Thanks for sharing!

  12. I have spent more than a decade filling out surveys & I can guarantee that putting in 12+ hours per day will not earn you enough to eat once per day. I’m already signed up to VIP Voice & they are just like all of the survey companies, promise huge amounts but deliver pennies per hour.

    • Hey Corin no one should spend anywhere near that with any survey site. Because none of them can make you large amounts of money consistently because they are based on supply and demand. So you’re right from that perspective. Surveys are just meant to be one offs that can add up over time. But you can plan around them for consistent or long term income. That’s why they are one of many steams in a multiple income streams philosophy I always preach.

      I think the problem is that folks have been mislead by sites that sell survey list that inflate what you can make. The reality is you’re not going to be paying any rent with this stuff.

      In any event, thanks for sharing your opinion. I really do appreciate it.
