Grabpoints is a relatively new website but they were before known with a name Zoombucks. On their homepage, they are offering you to grab free rewards, gift cards, and cash. You can get them by accomplishing little tasks like watching videos, playing games, liking their Twitter or Facebook page, etc. Is Grabpoints a scam or a great opportunity to earn money online?
I signed up and made a research so you will get an honest answer by reading my review.

What Is Grabpoints?
Grabpoints is a reward site where you will earn money by doing little tasks. There are hundreds of similar sites online and I have researched more than 60 of them. I signed up to Grabpoints because their website looked clean, professional and user-friendly. Who knows if this would be another great way to add up my online income?
However, I was a bit skeptical because none of those “get paid to” sites haven’t been worth it. The payout is so small and it takes so much time to earn any money. The only fast way to make good money would be referring lots of friends and followers and then earn commissions. But my principle is that I don’t recommend services that I wouldn’t use myself.
I see many successful Internet marketers promoting online surveys but I know that they are not using time on surveys themselves. I want to have a good reputation and my followers can trust on everything that I say. That’s why I don’t recommend getting paid to sites. Okay, let’s take a look if Grabpoints is different and a more profitable option than those other sites.
Here is a video where I show why you shouldn’t go for Grabpoints (maximum earning potential around $300/month) but aim for something bigger like +$10,000/month by using my #1 recommendation.
How to Make Money with Grabpoints?
In Grabpoints you will earn points and then you can exchange them for money or gift cards. 1,000 points equal to $1. There are several ways to earn points so let’s go through them one by one.
1.Use invite code and fill out your profile
This happens quickly. You use this code XU2KNP to earn your first points and money. Then you are ready to fill out your profile by answering questions like:
- Where are you living?
- When were you born?
- What is your annual income?
- How many children do you have?
- And so on.
So, typical questions for survey sites. The information will help them to make statistics based on your answers and offer you surveys that suit your profile. After using the code and filling out the profile you have approximately 600-700 points.
As you can see in the picture above, you can earn quick 100 by connecting with Grabpoints in Twitter and Facebook. The bad news is that it equals only to $0,10.
You can also 500 points by posting a video to YouTube about Grabpoints. Well, I did it but my advice was that people shouldn’t use it.
Probably the most typical way of earning points in this kind of sites. You can earn 450 by filling out a survey but it takes a relatively lot of time to earn that $0,45. In a regular job, you earn $0,45 every 1-5 minutes. But with surveys, you need to use at least 15-20 minutes to get the rewards.
I guess you understand why I am not a fan of online surveys. Even the most popular survey sites are crap.
4.Download and play mobile apps
You will earn 50-1,000 points for downloading mobile apps to your smartphone and accomplishing certain tasks. Sometimes the only requirement is to download the app to your phone but for bigger rewards like 1,000, you need to reach some level in a game. A task can be, for example, “Reach level 10 in Neverwinter game.”
In my opinion, this is probably the most interesting section of Grabpoints. Their rewards look quite big and intriguing. (See the picture below.)

As you can see in the picture, they are promising $11-16 bonuses for accomplishing these offers. Should we try them? I googled Karamba, MegaCasino, and Bet-at-home to find out.
All of them had lots of negative reviews. People were reporting that it was impossible to withdraw the money. Somebody said that these services could delete the “Withdraw” button because it’s not working anyway. Another person said that giving your money on these guys is the same as giving your money to fraudsters.
That’s enough for me. I don’t want to waste my time chasing little money from casinos when I can make good money with affiliate marketing by providing important value for other people.
This is probably the least profitable section. They ask you to watch some useless videos and will pay you $0,005 for each one. A complete waste of time or what do you think?
Every single day they have a contest who earns the most points in each country category: UK, US, Canada and the rest of the world. The first one will earn $1 and the 10th will earn $0,10.
They update rankings every 5 minutes so you can see how you have ranked in the contest. I took a look and noticed that it wouldn’t be so hard to win it. Have a glance at this example.
It shows that the leader has earned 2,485 points during today. If you earn 2,500 points, you are in the first place. However, this tells me one clear message. People have realized that it’s not worth to use their time on Grabpoints so they are not interested in winning the little contest of “$1 jackpot”.
The most profitable way of earning money in every get paid to site. You can earn passive income because you will earn points depending on the points that your referrals make. Let’s say that you refer somebody into Grabpoints and he earns 1,000 points. You will get 500p as a reward. If this happens with 10 people, you have already earned $5.
However, referring people into time-waster services is not wise. And second, you can earn +$100 (and much more) by referring people to other kind of services.
After you have earned enough points you can cash out through PayPal or take a gift card for Google Play, Facebook or to other services.
A positive thing is that your minimum cash out through PayPal is only $3. It means that you can get your money out quickly. But to be honest, I didn’t bother to go even that far because I know that I can earn money much faster by doing more valuable things.
Pros & Cons
- Many different ways to earn points = money
- Cash out minimum is only $3
- They have a mobile app
- The earning potential is very low like in other similar websites
- You waste your life if you use it on this kind of services
- They are offering some suspicious online casinos that are scamming people
- Earning points can give you an illusion of earning money fast even though in reality you need at least 3,000 points to cash out.
- Can’t earn passive income by accomplishing their tasks
Conclusion – Is Grabpoints a Scam?
It doesn’t seem to be a scam. I would like to give it more than 40 points out of 100 because it’s a bit better than some other survey sites. However, the earning potential is still ultimately low so I don’t want to use my valuable time on their site. If you still want to try it out using this code XU2KNP to get your first 500 points.
My advice is to go through Wealthy Affiliate step-by-step training if you are serious about making money online. Your earning potential will be honestly like 1,000 times bigger with the methods that you will learn there. I know many people who started their training without any prior knowledge or competence and now they are earning a full-time income online.
It’s exciting to see when your income just grows and grows every month. That doesn’t happen in a regular 9 to 5 job. Wealthy Affiliate is also a community so people who have succeeded before you (including myself) will help you hand-by-hand to succeed.
I could talk here hours about the benefits of their program but I have already written a 3,000 review and you can also start it out for completely free. Everyone who joins will get 20 interactive video lessons and 2 high-quality websites as a gift for signing up.

What do you think about Grabpoints?
Do you prefer also more profitable ways to make money online?
Let me know in the comments below! 🙂
I promise to reply to all of your comments personally because I love to hear your thoughts.
GrabPoints is a SCAM. They took away all my points even if I’ve already reactivated my account. They will not pay your unused points. They are a scam. SMH.
Thanks for sharing your experience Anna. I hope that as many people as possible could avoid sites like Grabpoints.
I have an account on Grabpoints. I even made some points by participating on various grapbpoints offer, however, I could not reach withdrawal threshold and it look very difficult to reach payment threshold, therefore, I left the site. If surveys are available to you you can earn extra money on grabpoints, however, there are better ways to make money online.
I think Grabpoints is one of the best GPT sites but still I it’s not my recommendation. As you said, there are better ways to make money online.
What a great review. I appreciate you taking time from your day to write reviews so everyone else can be more informed when making a decision online. There are so many scams out there!
You’re right, the pay per click style income is barley enough to buy groceries with in a month! Only $300! I suppose it’s good for some small extra cash if that’s what you need. I defiantly agree that if you want to make bigger money, something you can eventually retire with, you should go with his #1 recommendation!
Thanks for making it so easy for me to read through and see all the facts on grab points. I am able to make a better decision regarding making money online!
yeah, it’s only possible to earn some extra cash through Grabpoints. My estimation of $300 per month was only if you are playing their games full-time. You could probably buy food with that money if you are living in a cheap place in Indonesia but not in the U.S. or Europe.
However, making money online is exciting because you can do it wherever you are in the world. At the moment I am living in Austria but I am planning to move to a cheap country after a couple of months. Then my living costs are smaller but I am still making the same money online. That’s cool!
By the way, have you already started a training in Wealthy Affiliate?
Thank you for this post. I have tried different sites like Grabpoints and they all seem to be the same. I thought it would be a good way to make an income online but i found i always have to spend a lot of time but not a lot of return for my time.
The idea of being able to make $10000 a month sounds really appealing but how is this possible/ and how much time would i have to put into this to actually make some money?
you share the same experience with many other people who tried Grabpoints and other similar services. They got only a small reward for their efforts.
$10,000/month is definitely possible. The idea is that you need to learn a way to make money online and then repeat the process over and over again. If you are able to earn $100 passive income with your website, $10,000 is possible as well.
How much time it will take? It depends mainly on the factors that I have shared on this post. I know that some people have made it a year or two. Some people never reach it because they give up so early.
The most important thing is to start and always keep on learning. Even the sky is not a limit then.
Let me know if you need some help during the process. I noticed that you have probably started the training in Wealthy Affiliate. Go through it diligently and ask also lots of questions within the community from successful online entrepreneurs.
There are a few sites like that out there. A new one just went public a month or so ago. Marketers should Never get involved in those sites, in my opinion.
I detest surveys and most other time wasters out there. Get paid very low for watching videos you would otherwise pass up? Really? They are good for getting out of your head I guess, as once you get into it, time fly’s by very quickly.
Time that you could build another site. Time to re-write an eBook to promote. So many more ways to use Time.
you have a mindset of a successful person. You are seeing opportunities and avoiding time-wasters like online surveys and watching useless videos for little money.
I understand that some people use those videos and tasks to “relax”. However, I prefer other ways for relaxing. In addition, I am not so sure if those video ads really relax your mind.
Grab points is really a scam, no doubt about that, they make it look so simple to earn a daily income by completing easy tasks but my friend the tasks never accumulate the points.
Even when the points are acquired, and changed to money, the money cannot be withdrawn. I don’t really know what sites like grab points benefit from earning themselves negative reviews online and building a bad name for themselves.
are you sure that Grabpoints is a scam?
In my opinion, it’s just an opportunity to earn some pocket money. Even though they pay, the money you earn is very small.
Better just focus on more profitable ways to earn money online.
I have never heard about this program before.
But with programs like this you can’t earn full time passive income.
It is good to earn a few extra bucks every month and maybe to invest in some other business or memberships!
The other thing I don’t like is that surveys inside this program are probably geographically targeted (mostly for US, UK and Canada and maybe Australia residents) and if you don’t live in one of these countries, you will probably never receive any surveys.
All in all, Clixsense is much better option than this, if you want to earn some extra cash.
Thanks for you review!
To be honest, I don’t think that Clixsense would be better at all. Why would you waste your time earning for pennies when you can use your time earning tens of thousands of dollars per month passive income?
I think that online surveys and reward sites are only for people who don’t aim high in life. I don’t want to be rude by saying that but I need to be honest.
We have only one life so I don’t want to waste it by filling out surveys.
Affiliate marketing is cool because you can even become a millionaire by providing important value for other people. Along the way I think it’s good to create own products as well but affiliate marketing is a great way to make a full-time income online.
