What is FeaturePoints?
FeaturePoints is a website as well as an app that allows people to earn money by doing surveys, downloading apps, referring others and more. You get points for performing various activities, and the points can be redeemed for either cash or rewards of your choice. They have been around since the year 2012, which means that they are pretty reliable. They have rewarded over $5,600,000 as rewards, which is a really impressive feat.
The founders of FeaturePoints are George Pogostin and Steven Brener. They are not the oldest website of this type, but it looks like that they are going to be around for a while.
The truth is that there are plenty of websites like this one, but the problem is that they don’t pay a lot.
In this review, we will see if this website pays a good amount of money and help you decide if it is worth it or not.
How does FeaturePoints work?
You have to make an account, which should be very easy. It seems that they are available in a lot of countries if not all of the countries. Unlike a lot of other websites that offer surveys, they will not bother you with questions before you finish making your account. You can start earning as soon as you have registered on their website.
Let us take a look at the ways of earning money through this website.
Surveys: You can’t hope to do surveys and earn from them without filling some personal information first. So, you will have to fill in your personal information honestly, or they will disqualify you from future surveys. Don’t worry, the initial survey will be very short, and you will get ten points for doing it.
After doing the short survey, you will see more survey opportunities. They have some questions that they ask before the survey, and you will waste your time in answering questions if you don’t qualify for the survey. In my case, I only had two opportunities, and I didn’t qualify for both of them.
The opportunities refresh if you fail to qualify, but I didn’t bother trying again. I am sure that I could qualify for some surveys if I tried. Anyway, if you qualify for a survey, then you will get a limited amount of points as the surveys don’t pay a lot. You can earn around 100 points for 10 minutes of your time, but the amount of points that you earn differ from survey to survey.
Downloading Apps: You will need to use your mobile phone to download apps and earn points. In some cases, you will get points just for downloading the app. In other cases, you will need to follow their instructions like keeping the app open for a few minutes. In cases of games, they may ask you to reach a certain level in the game. So, it is important to read their instructions before you download an app.
Refer Friends: This is a good way to earn through this website. You will earn 25% of your referral’s points. When you have referred 3 people, then you can earn 50% of your referral’s points. This is really good, and it can definitely allow you to multiply the amount of points that you earn without working on the website. However, it is not easy to refer many people and keep them active.
Contests: Contests don’t really guarantee you any earnings, but you can certainly get a big reward if you win one. You will get one token when you earn 20 points. These tokens are used to enter into the contests. The more tokens you have, the higher your chances of winning a contest. They have a weekly $50 contest and a monthly $150 contest.
Offers: This is a new addition to the website. The offers require you to perform certain tasks such as signing up for a website. They may require your credit card information, so you need to be very careful.
I have covered all of the ways of earning through the website above. You can cash your earnings through PayPal or get gift cards or Bitcoin. You will need 3,000 points to get $5 through PayPal.
Honestly, the website offers some decent ways of earning points, but they need to increase the quantity of surveys and offers.
How much does it cost to join?
It is completely free to use the website or the app to earn points. You will need to enter your credit card information while doing certain trial offers. You can get charged if you don’t cancel the trial offers on time. The trial offers pay a lot of points, but you need to be careful.
How much can I earn?
The ways of earning through the website or app don’t pay a lot of money. This can only prove to be a side hustle in the best-case scenario. In simple words, it would not be wise to rely on it for full-time income at all.
The surveys are limited in number and only pay a low amount of points when you complete them. You can waste a lot of time in qualifying for surveys. In some cases, you may find that you are unable to qualify for several surveys even after answering all of their questions. In such cases, all of your time will go to waste.
The contests are a long shot. It would be much better to just stack up tokens and wait for the right time to enter them all into one contest. This can increase your chances of winning, but it would still be unlikely for you to win.
Offers and downloading apps aren’t a great way to earn either. I admit that you can earn a decent amount through referrals if you have a good number of referrals that stay active. However, it is likely that most of your referrals will leave in the long run.
In short, you can’t earn much. Still, some people may find the earnings enough to keep using the website.
Are there any complaints?
Yes, I have listed some complaints below.
It will take forever just to get $5.
Don’t download the app because it is a waste of your time and effort.
FeaturePoints is certainly not a scam. This website can allow you to earn some money, but I don’t recommend it to those who want to earn a good amount of money for their time. If you value your time, then this website is not worth it. I still leave the final decision in your hands. Good luck and choose wisely.
