My GlobalTestMarket Cheque, Paid for Doing Online Surveys

gtm cheque 2012

I received this cheque in the mail a few days ago.

It was a cheque of RM312.59 from Global Test Market, an online survey company.

How it works:

  1. Register
  2. Answer surveys and you will be given points.
  3. Points vary depending on the survey, but on average it seems to be 40-50 points
  4. 1000 points = $50 USD, so each survey averages 50 points or $2.50.
  5. When you reach 1000 points, you can redeem your points for cash.

I signed up in 2009 and cashed out my points at the end of 2011, so it took me 3 years to accumulate about 2000 points.

Payment is by cheque only, so I sent an email to request them to ensure that the cheque name was according to my IC.

At first I was worried that the cheque would be in USD (which required foreign cheque clearance), but as you can see from the photo, they issued a Malaysian cheque from RBS Kuala Lumpur.

If you are interested to join, you can head over to However, they do have a referral program. If I refer you then I get 20 points (50 cents).

So if you are kind enough to allow me to earn the referral bonus, just leave a comment below. Make sure you fill the correct email address in the “Email” column and I will send a referral email through the GlobalTestMarket system.

It’s not a lot of money, but every little bit helps to pay the bills.

I’m just happy to get this extra bonus.

  1. Hi Adino!!
    I just want to know which bank did you cashed the cheque, is there any charged from bank to you and how long it takes to cash the money?

    Adino: Hi Nass, GlobalTestMarket sent me a local cheque from Royal Bank of Scotland KL (in Ringgit), and I banked in to my local bank account (Maybank) so there’s no extra charges involved. The cheque cleared as per normal. I think within 2 business days.
