Here is a complete list of the recent changes that we've made:
We've listened to feedback from users that are saying that the 250 points to qualify that we currently had in place was a little too tough to meet for a lot of people.
In order for us to lower that amount, we could no longer afford the $1 guarantee, which, also based on feedback, wasn't a big deal.
We decided to lower the qualifier amount to just 100 points and remove the $1 guarantee.
For every 100 points you earn, you earn what we call a "Qualifier Token". You can collect up to 10 qualifier tokens to qualify in advance for upcoming weeks.
With 10 qualifier tokens, you can earn enough to qualify for 10 weeks in advance without the need to do any surveys. This way, you can take a few weeks off, if needed.
While we were building Survault, we never did advertise the amount of value that each survey point was. We've now decided to reveal that to you. Here it is...
2000 Survey Points = $1. Every 100 points earned is a nickel ($0.05).
At the end of the week, if you have at least 1 qualifier token, your "Weekly Points" balance is converted to "Pending USD" and added to your account.
Before, you were earning nothing from your personal effort except for entries into drawings, which is fine, but we wanted to do more.
Now, you'll earn from your points as well as receive entries into drawings.
Prior to these changes, you were earning off of 20 levels worth of Survey activity from your referrals and their referrals and their referrals, etc., etc., etc..
Now, you will start earning off your own activity, plus the activity of your referrals, up to 5 levels deep.
We decided that splitting up the earnings across 20 levels of referrals didn't match with our goal to get you earning money quickly. By changing it to 5 levels, you will earn more off of each referral.
We've changed our regular cash drawings into point drawings. Instead of $5, $50 or $500 drawings, they are now 10K, 100K, and 1M point drawings.
The prizes haven't changes, only the names have.
