Taking Surveys

How can I take a survey?
There are two ways that you can take a survey: You can access them via the Survey Center on vipvoice.com, or by checking the inbox of the email address that you registered to vipvoice.com with. There may be an email invitation waiting for you right now! To ensure that you receive all of your surveys, add vipvoice.com to your list of allowed domains.
How often will survey invites be sent to me?
The number of survey invitations received varies for each member. This is typically determined by the survey needs of our clients, and whether your profile/demographic information (e.g. age, gender, education level, etc.) match the requirements for a given survey.

Continue to check your inbox for invites. In addition, you can also check the Survey Center for survey opportunities. Make sure all your profiles are up to date, so relevant survey invites can be sent to you.
What is a partner survey?
As a member of VIP Voice, you may be asked to participate in surveys conducted by one of our trusted research partners. Members are directed to these surveys based on demographic criteria (e.g. age and gender) needed for the survey. When you agree to participate in a partner survey, you are directed to a survey hosted on the partner’s website.
What do I earn for completing partner surveys?
When you complete a partner survey, you will earn VIP Points.
Why was I told “I don’t qualify for a survey”?
In order to qualify for a survey, you need to meet some minimum survey requirements, e.g. you have purchased one or more items that the survey is asking about. If you didn’t qualify for one survey, this does not mean you will not qualify for others.
What do I do if I encounter a technical issue with a survey?
We do our best to make our surveys compatible with a variety of common browsers, operating systems, internet connection types, and devices. We find that our surveys function best when using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as your browser. If you experience a technical issue while taking a survey, please submit a ticket to the help desk and include as much information as possible- the Survey ID number, and screenshots of the issue so our customer service team can assist you. To submit a ticket to the help desk, click Contact Us located on the right hand side of this page.
Where can I view how many surveys I have completed?
To view how many surveys you have completed, click Account located at the top of this page. You’ll be able to see a history of all the surveys that you’ve completed and the points that you’ve earned over the past 60 days.

Daily Digest Journal

I lost my link to my journal, can a new one be sent?
The link for Daily Digest is http://mydailydigest.vipvoice.com. This link can be bookmarked so you have it when needed.
How do I know if I completed a day?
The Daily Digest Journal consists of 3 pages, My Quick List, Event Details, and My Daily Summary. The My Quick List and Event Details pages must be completed before proceeding to the My Daily Summary page to complete a day.

Once you have gotten to the My Daily Summary page, click the blue 'click here' link located in the orange box at the top of the page to complete a day.

After you have clicked this link, messaging will appear to inform you the day has been completed. You will also see a green check mark at the top of the page over the day/date that is complete.

If you do not receive a message informing you the day was complete and a green check mark, your points will not be credited to your account and you will not be eligible for the $25 reward. Daily Digest
When will I receive my reward?
Once you complete your journal, your redemption email containing a link to claim your $25 reward will be sent within 5-7 business days. When you receive the email, click on the link.

Earning Points

How many points will I earn for completing a survey?
For each survey that you complete, you will earn VIP Points.

In order to qualify for a survey, you need to meet some minimum survey requirements, e.g. you have purchased one or more items that the survey is asking about.

If you do not meet the qualifications, you will still receive VIP Participation points. To learn more about VIP Points click here.
What are VIP Qualification Points?
If you qualify (based on some minimum survey requirements) for a survey and complete it, you will earn VIP Qualification Points based on your current reward level as well as how many surveys you have completed thus far.

How do I earn points?
VIP Voice members can earn points by completing eligible VIP Voice surveys.
How do I use my points?
Points can be used as entries into sweepstakes in SweepLand or bids into auctions in BidLand. Points have no cash value and may not be redeemed for prizes themselves.
How many sweepstakes entries or auction bids is each point worth?
Each point is worth one sweepstakes entry or one bid into an auction. There is no minimum number of points needed to enter any SweepLand sweepstakes, however for a BidLand auction, you must enter a bid greater than the “Current High Bid” for that auction.
Where can I see how many points I have?
You can view your points balance on the Account Page, Reward Center, SweepLand, and BidLand.
Can I save my points or do I have to use them immediately?
You can accrue your points as long as you remain an active VIP Voice member. Members who have not completed a survey in 6 months will have their points forfeited and account closed.
Can I change or edit my points before a sweepstakes or auction closes?
You can increase or decrease the number of points entered at any time prior to the close of a SweepLand sweepstakes, however once you bid on an auction, you can’t reduce or retract your bid, but your points are instantly returned to your account once you are outbid by another member.
Do my points expire?
Earned points do not expire as long as you remain an active VIP Voice member. Members who have not completed a survey in 6 months will have their points forfeited and account closed. Points cannot be combined or transferred with other members.
Why were my points deducted if I didn’t win the prize?
In SweepLand, once a sweepstakes closes, all points that you have submitted into that drawing are deducted from your account.
If I am the highest bidder of a VIP Bonus Points auction, will the points I used to win the auction be returned to my account?
No. All auctions including bonus points auctions operate under the same rules. If you are the highest bidder, the points you used to win will not be returned to your account. Your points are only ever returned to your account for a BidLand auction when you are outbid for an auction by another member.

For example, if you submit 500 points into any sweepstakes, after the sweepstakes closes, the 500 points will not be returned to your account. SweepLand winners are chosen at random one to two weeks after the sweepstakes close date. If you are a winner, you will be notified by email from sweeplandwinners@biworldwide.com. To ensure that you receive your notification should you be chosen as a winner, add biworldwide.com to your list of allowed domains.

BidLand is our auction program. In BidLand, bids can be placed into various auctions. The highest bidder at the end of the auction is the winner and will have their points deducted from their account. If you are not the highest bidder, any points entered into that auction will be placed back into your Points Available Balance. BidLand winners are notified by email from bidlandwinners@biworldwide.com. To ensure that you receive your notification, add biworldwide.com to your list of allowed domains.
What are the odds of winning a SweepLand sweepstakes?
Your chances of winning depend on the number of entries submitted into each sweepstakes by other VIP Voice members. You can see where other members are placing their points by checking out the “Current Most Popular Sweepstakes” section. This is located on the right hand side of the SweepLand page.
Why do some sweepstakes or auctions not show the name of the manufacturer?
As a market research company, we will not disclose the name of prize manufacturers in the industries that we cover, in order to ensure that we do not influence members’ purchase behavior or survey responses. Rest assured that all prizes awarded will be from leading and recognizable manufacturers.
How do I create a BidLand ID?

  1. Choose a prize you would like to bid on and click on it.
  2. You will receive a message to create a BidLand ID. This ID cannot be your email address or an ID that another member has already chosen.

  3. Once your BidLand ID has been accepted, it is linked to your account and will be automatically attached to all auctions going forward in BidLand.
