Maximiles is an online website that allows you to earn points in a number of ways. Points in turn can be exchange for prizes including DVDs, electronics and gift vouchers.
There are a number of different ways to earn points on Maximiles and they include the following:
Shop online – Visit one of over 500 different retailers and earn points back for every £1 you spend. I always check the shops on here, and the rates where applicable, against those on TopCashBack.
Surveys – Complete surveys to earn up to 500 points. In the past I have also been invited to focus groups via Maximiles and have been rewarded with upwards of 10,000 points in the past for these, most of which have been interesting and simple too.
Paid Emails – Earn at least 5 points for each paid email that you open. These are only small amounts, and not always sent daily, but they soon add up over the year.
Register with websites – Complete a number of different opportunities, found via the paid emails, and then you can earn points. For example I was recently awarded 150 points just for signing up to a website, for free, and I then received some free baby products including a teddy bear which was surprisingly nice.
Refer your friends – You can also earn 1500 points when your free earns 1500 points, in addition to that but anyone you refer will start with 100 points to help them along the way too.
Maximiles is a bit of a slow burner for me but it has allowed me to get at least 5 Christmas presents for people every year, with a value of £100 or more.
The rewards are different regularly and there are items available from just 2,000 points, which can be quite simple to build up with the surveys. Pretty much all of the surveys on offer are emailed and these are not ones from external companies (usually) meaning it is highly likely that I complete most of the surveys they email me.
On average I redeem for a prize at least every 2 months, more often when I remember to complete all of the surveys promptly. They offer points for being disqualified from surveys and for the most part they have just one test question within their survey.
This is usually just a tickbox that requires you to either leave unticked if you want more surveys or tick if you don’t want more, as well as adding your email address for your points to be processed.
I have never had a problem with payout for a completed survey and if an email states that there is a point reward then it is always awarded.
I have literally never had to contact support for a failed credit and I have been using the website for a number of years on and off.
You can visit Maximiles or alternatively if you would like to allow me the opportunity to refer you, and earn 1500 points once you do, then please do send me your email address by Contacting me.
