For each survey you complete in full you will be awarded a set number of points. (See "How much do I earn for each survey?")
Once you have reached a current balance of 5000 points we will send you a cheque for £50 at the next payment date (usually the end of the month).
Nothing - registration is free! Newvista does not charge for joining and there are NO annual membership or administration fees.
You can participate in as many as you like of the surveys or other research activities we run, as long as you are invited to take part and are eligible (though each survey / activity can only be completed once).
Participation in one activity does not automatically prejudice you from participating in another activity running at the same time. The only exception to this is when specific restrictions are requested by the company / client initiating the research.
Different surveys and activities will run for different lengths of time, so it’s best to participate early in order to avoid disappointment. Once a project is closed, or when enough people with a certain profile have taken part, the survey or activity will no longer be available.
There is no set amount of surveys you will receive in any given time period, nor is there a set number of planned activities. Panellists who are eligible for a survey or activity are selected at random - you may receive many invites in quick succession or, similarly, you may go a while without receiving one.
Yes, in order to ensure you give careful consideration to each question before responding there are quality control checks built in to all of our surveys.
Points will not be accredited to your account if your answers are inconsistent or illogical or if a minimum amount of time has not been spent taking part in a survey.
These inbuilt, pre-defined quality control questions appear on every survey and are administered to everyone equally.If you fail these quality control checks on three different surveys in a calendar year, you will be unsubscribed from the newvista panel and you will forfeit any points that may have been added to your account.
If you can't access a survey for any reason (e.g. getting security warnings from your browser, being asked for authentication, etc.), try copying the survey link and pasting it directly into your browser.
If that does not help, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org providing as much detail as possible including which browser you were using and a copy of the survey link you were trying to access.
Yes! One of the new features of newvista is the ability to take part in a survey or other research activity on the go from your mobile!
Please note: newvista is not responsible for any data use charges associated with using your mobile for a survey or any other activity. You should reference your mobile phone provider contract for any questions involving data usage.
The number of points you earn for each project will depend upon the average length of time it takes to complete a questionnaire or other research activity.
On average, newvista awards 100 points for every 15 minutes you spend completing any given research project, provided the survey or other research activity is completed accurately and in full, and takes an acceptable amount of time to complete based on the average length of completion time (e.g. you wouldn’t be able to complete a 20 minute survey in less than 5 minutes!).
However, the amount earned can vary depending on the complexity and/or need for respondents. The number of points specified on each survey or research activity is FINAL and cannot be changed or negotiated.
If on the 29th of September your account shows 4800 points and on the 3rd of October your account shows 5300 points, your pay-out of £50 will be actioned at the end of October and paid to you within two weeks of the date actioned.
Only once you have reached the 5000 reward point marker will you be eligible to cash in your 5000 points for a £50 cheque.
Please also note that your account will only be credited with points earned on a survey that has been fully completed within the guidelines listed above (e.g. you have not failed quality control checks and you have spent the correct amount of time on any given activity).
Our monthly prize draws are for members who took the time to attempt a survey or research project were unable to complete it.
i.e. Any member who ultimately screens out of a survey; either as a consequence of us having already fulfilled our requirement for a similar profile of participant or simply not meeting the eligibility criteria for a particular survey.
Please note that entry into the prize draw is not granted for those who fail due to one of the inbuilt quality control checks.
There will be two £250 prizes each month and potentially other smaller prize draws in the future!
We will announce when the main prize draw will take place each month so be sure to keep checking the newvista website for details!
Smaller prize draws, if any, may take place as and when they are made available and will also be announced on newvista's Facebook and/or Twitter accounts
Winners will be notified by email; the names of the winners will also be posted on the newvista website.
Winners will receive their prize within four weeks of the draw taking place.
