Introducing InstaGranny and our new Referral Zone

Category : Tips and Tricks

InstaGranny and Referral Zone BlogWhat’s up, Cats. Ruth here, but the hip guys and dolls know me as InstaGranny on the IG. I’m stoked to give you the low down on our mint digs and tell you about PointClubs new Referral Zone. It’s outta sight!

So the Cap and Lady PC have been itching for a while now to introduce a refer-a-friend program outta PCHQ, and we’re all jazzed to say it’s finally here! Let me give you the lowdown on how it works.

Step One: Be a Member of PointClub

Seems a bit obvious, but there you have it. If you are a PointClub member in good standing and you reside in the United States, you can sign up to be in our referral program. Once you sign up, you will be provided a unique signup code. Invite your friends and family to sign up, and make sure they use that code when they register so they can be connected to your referral zone.

Step Two: Start Getting Those Extra Points

As the head of your referral network, you are eligible to receive 10% of all net points earned by your network members. Net points are the base points earned on completed and approved surveys, Pollfish surveys, and activities in our Offer Wall. This doesn’t include Daily Streak points, Daily Sweeps prize points, or points through other activities.

Your referred friends have to complete the registration process and remain in good standing. Tell ‘em not to mess around and play it straight and they’ll be just fine.

Step Three: Become a Brand Ambassador

That 10% earning is just the start! Bump up your network to 20 or more active members, and you can be a Brand Ambassador! Once you opt into the Brand Ambassadorship, you are eligible to earn 20%! Same types of guidelines apply here, but you have to keep your network at 20 or more. If they go inactive, or their accounts are closed, and you drop below 20 again you’re back to 10% earnings.

But chill out, there’s no need to panic! Once you bring your network up to 20 or more again you’re back in the 20% zone! Far out!

Step Four: Mondays are Righteous!

Monday is point payday! Every Monday (PST in the US) we run a report and figure out just how much you’ve netted. The points are added right to your PointBank, and you can get the deets in your Referral Zone history.

It’s a downer when you’re a Brand Ambassador and your network dips below 20 people; but no worries! We don’t leave you hangin’! We check every Friday to make sure all is cool, and if not, we let you know so you have a couple days to nudge your network. Don’t freak out if you slip into that 10% range again! You can always get back to 20% by getting your network active. It always helps to have more than 20 people, too. There’s no limit on how many friends and family you can invite.

Can you dig it?

So beat it on over the Referral Zone and get hoppin’!

When considering your options, you should know the following about PointClub:

  • Not every panelist is eligible to complete every survey; a fact we’ve already discussed. If you try, but are deemed ineligible, Captain PC has the authority to grant you points regardless of completion. We are the only online survey site to provide this payout.
  • We grant signup bonuses and extra points for completing your initial panelist dossier.
  • We have one of the lower payout thresholds at $25, which you can take as payment to a Paypal account or through a variety of gift card offers.
  • We give away points every day via our Facebook page. Don’t leave out that daily checkin!

Haven’t signed up yet? Now is a great time to begin earning that extra pocket cash! Join Pointclub today!

    Thanks PointClub!

  2. Aditya Dang says:

    Can we refer someone in singapore?

    • blogpointclub says:

      Thank you for the question! Referrers (current PointClub members) must be in the US to open a referral network, but those they refer to join can be outside the United States. If they are outside the US, they can be a member as long as they meet all requirements but they themselves can’t begin referring.

      We have an FAQ section on our site that may help with other questions you may have.

  3. Rhonda Arnaud says:

    Another great way to earn extra points, get your opinion heard and have fun doing so. “Captain PC” and “PointClub” are always thinking of new, exciting and fun ways for us to do things as a family of clubbers and I am blessed to be a part of it. I am stoked to be able to share “PointClub” with family and friends so that they can enjoy themselves while making themselves a little extra money, too!!!

  4. godwin says:

    this is good i like the way you run the pointclub surveys system., i hope to start referring friends

  5. LuAnn Berg says:

    That would be great if I had friends!


    Not sure I can participate, do not know many people. I am disabled so I do not get out much. Will we be penalized if we do not participate?

    • blogpointclub says:

      Barbara, no worries at all! You would never be penalized for not participating. Nor would you b e penalized if you invite people who ultimately don’t participate. It’s just another program for you to be involved in if you choose.

  7. Stephanie says:

    I’m new to this site. Anyone have any advice on making points quick? I have tried a lot of the surveys but never qualify for them 🙁

    • blogpointclub says:

      Stephanie, the more you interact with the site, the better we get at matching you to surveys. Just keep going. You can also possibly earn points by entering the Daily Sweepstakes via our Facebook page and participate in the fun quizzes we post from time to time. There’s pretty much always one going on. Right now, we’re asking about Halloween traditions. Check out the pinned post on Facebook.

  10. Jilline M Holtz says:

    I think Point Club is great except I constantly get emails saying I’m going to get four hundred to a thousand points and I always just get 12 I would like to make more money and faster as this is my only source of income at the moment other than that point Club is a learning mystery
