How to win extra Shells at Nicequest

As you already know, at Nicequest you receive Shells for answering surveys or sharing how you use the internet. Right after completing a survey, the Shells corresponding to your time and effort will be added to your account (Haven’t received them? Get help here). Then you can redeem them to participate in Prize Draws, choose a donation campaign you’d like to support or treat yourself to a gift from our online shop.

Would you like to win more Shells while you wait for your next survey? Read about 4 ways to get some more!


1. Contests on social media

On our Facebook page, we often hold contests where you can win extra Shells. Make sure to follow us there! Participation is easy: just look out for the posts announcing the contest and follow the instructions. 

Apart from these contests, you might have already heard of #nicePhoto, our monthly contest. To participate you share a photo of yourself and your redeemed Nicequest gift together with the green card on our Facebook wall. The person with the winning photo will receive 50 extra Shells. Find more info about the #nicePhoto contest here.

2) Invitations for friends

Sometimes, we give some of our collaborators the opportunity to invite friends or relatives to our community. They are selected based on internally established criteria, so it is very likely that, if you did not receive an invitation this time, you will be chosen next time.

How will you know that we have sent you an invitation? Check your inbox! If you are one of the lucky ones, we will send you an email with all the details. And if your friends register, you will receive extra Shells in your account! However, that won’t happen immediately, first, we will have to check if your friends and/or relatives registered successfully. We will notify you as soon as we have added the Shells to your account.


3) Special Activities

Nicequest is not just surveys, we are much more! We have different Special Activities where you can earn Shells in a fast and fun way. For example, we may ask you to try products that we send yo your home for free, that you test video games that have just been released or take pictures of your meals.

Special Activities are a different way to gather insights for brands and organizations and for you, it is a new way to earn extra Shells.

To participate in the Activities, as for the surveys, we send invitations according to the characteristics of the profile of each person (age, sex, city of residence, etc.). If you have not yet participated in any of our Special Activities, stay tuned at the end of your survey, if you were selected, you will find your invitation there!


With Special Activities in Nicequest you will earn even more Shells!
