Take Short Surveys. Earn Cool Rewards.
SurveyMini is a survey app for iPhone and Android from SMG services which is the same company that provided Locately. SurveyMini pays a little better than most location based survey apps that I have tried including Surveys On The Go. It takes about 6-8 months of continuously answering short surveys or polls to earn enough for a $25.00 gift card. I have been using SurveyMini for about a year and a half and at this point I have cashed out two $25.00 gift cards with about $16.20 in pending earnings.

At this time I am not going to post any screenshots due to the fact that they prohibit using screenshots in their terms unless they have given written permission. I have emailed support requesting permission but I have not yet received a reply.
How Does It Work?
With SurveyMini you need to have your location services enabled and you must be at least 18. As you are visiting stores and restaurants you will be asked if you have visited a particular business. If you have you will be given short surveys to answer about your experience at a particular business that usually pay between 100 and 750 points which translate into $.10 to $.75. These surveys are more like polls since they are extremely short. The company has stated on their website that they will never be more than 11 questions. In my experience they never take very long unless I have an exceptional experience or a really awful experience and I decide to elaborate with all of the details.
Sometimes you will be asked if you visited a certain business that you did not visit and you will usually be paid something for answering that you did not visit. It is really great to get paid and be able to conveniently offer feedback to businesses where I shop at the same time.
What Can You Earn?
There are 3 different tiers of rewards available. 1000 points is roughly equivalent to a dollar. At the 4000 point level there are some coupons available to places like Office Depot and Shari’s. These coupons expire within 30 days and require you to make purchases to redeem.
At the 12000 point level you can choose a $10.00 gift card from several merchants including Burger King, Sonic, Regal Cinemas, and Payless. At the 25,000 point level you can choose a $25.00 gift card from places like Michael’s, Olive Garden, Victoria’s Secret, Dicks, Kroger, and several others. At the 48,000 point level there are a few options for $50.00 gift cards including Tractor Supply Co. and HomeGoods.
I have personally only redeemed for Michael’s and Kroger cards. The Kroger cards are especially handy because they work for any Kroger store or gas station; I use them at Fred Meyer. I have emailed them and asked for more options but they did not respond and they did not take my suggestion.
Is There a Referral Program?
At this time there is no referral program. Here are the links to download SurveyMini for iPhone and Android:
SurveyMini for Android on the Google Play Store.
SurveyMini for iPhone on the App Store.
Here is a link to the SurveyMini.com website.
Once you earn enough for the gift card of your choice you select it from the Rewards Center screen. You will have to verify your address since all of the gift cards are physical. It takes a couple of weeks or so for your gift card to come in the mail. I am not sure what the process is for coupons since I have never redeemed them.
Helpful SurveyMini Tips
- Be sure to enable location services.
- It is also very helpful to have notifications enabled for SurveyMini since you won’t know if you got a survey without them.
- Be honest with your answers. Some answers can lead to additional follow up surveys about the same shopping trip.
- If you do not go to businesses very often you will not get very many surveys since this app is specifically designed to give surveys about your experience at specific businesses at the time you visited.
- If you did not visit a particular business and you answer no you will sometimes be rewarded anyway.
- Be patient, it takes several months to get a gift card but it is less time and work than many other apps.
