Lightspeed is an internet survey site it appears to be worldwide and is good in the fact you can gain points from completing surveys which can then be translated into vouchers.
How can I join?
Quite easily, go to their website, register your details and you will be emailed any surveys they feel would be relevant for you to complete, each offers points from 50 to 120 and can take from 5-30 minutes.
How does the site look?
The site looks ok, it has one main page with links to members sections, surveys and further things of interest, there are also links to the rewards pages, FAQ's and details of how you can get more surveys sent to you.
What are the surveys like:
These are generally good, ranging from adverts for cars, airlines, new products through to shorter surveys asking your views on new bank account types. It is a good chance to have your opinions heard at an early stage of product development.
What points do I get and what are the rewards?
You get between 50-120 points per survey you complete a £10 Amazon voucher is worth about 1200 points so you would have to complete at least 10, 30 minute surveys to gain anything. There is actually a great range of rewards, from donations to Unicef to I-Tunes vouchers, New Look, Sainsburys, Amazon, Monsoon, Boots, Currys or House of Fraser vouchers. You can also get magazine subscriptions which are a gift that keeps on giving.
The surveys are interesting but i'd say 3 times out of 5 you will spend 5-10 minutes answering personal details and some work about your thoughts on particular products only to be told that you are not in the target range for the product, I would much rather be told this immediately as it is demotivating and has at times put me off doing more with the site.
If you put in the hard work you will eventually get rewards and they are some of the best i've seen from a survey site. The site looks ok if a tad basic and they do send vouchers quickly, so I would give it 4 out of 5, simply because in comparison to most survey sites i've seen and experienced this is reliable and quick.
Summary: Great choice of rewards
